Trilogy Spoilers! Podcast – Alan Rickman Tribute

We had other plans for the podcast this week but all that was pushed aside when we heard the tragic news of Alan Rickman’s passing on January 14th, 2016. Rickman was one of the Trilogy Spoilers! team’s all-time favourite actors and he leaves behind many memorable roles and quotable lines. He is an all-time great and yet another legend 2016 has taken from us. He will be missed.

Alan Rickman Has Passed Away At The Age Of 69

I don’t enjoy writing obituaries about heroes that have had a huge impact on my life. We’re only two weeks into 2016 and this is the second time in days. So, with that being said it is very hard but we must acknowledge the passing of a truly great artist, Alan Rickman.  Like Bowie, Mr.Rickman succumbed to cancer at the age of 69 and again, I had hoped it was a hoax. It’s not, but fortunately for all of us we will have access to his movies and his performances, forever. The first time I remember him, it is probably...

Alan Rickman Hilariously Confronts Jimmy Fallon about Famous “Rickman-Off” Episode with Benedict Cumberbatch

Alan Rickman visited The Tonight Show to scold Jimmy Fallon on the famous episode where Fallon and Benedict Cumberbatch did their best Alan Rickman impressions in what was called a Rickman-Off. (To this day, it’s the funniest!) Rickman brought two ‘Jimmy Fallon truth telling machines’ or what I’d like to call helium balloons and had Jimmy Fallon inhale and  apologize. But, you can tell that deep down, even Rickman enjoyed the the impressions. And, hearing Alan Rickman’s helium voice say “Harry Potter” is awesome. It’s super cute. But what’s uber-cute is the original Rickman-Off that you should watch right now: Follow Audrey on twitter...

Paul Scheer Will Write on Amazon’s GALAXY QUEST TV Revival

This is amazing news.  Galaxy Quest may finally get the TV series that has been so often hoped for.  Paul Scheer (The League, Children’s Hospital) has signed on to write the new Galaxy Quest TV series that has long been in the works, and may now actually come to fruition.   Galaxy Quest, the 1999 sci-fi parody starring Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell,  among others; has had some TV buzz around it for years.  The series was reportedly close to production when Rickman met his untimely death in early 2016, according to Deadline.   RELATED: STAR...

See First-Look Photos of Seth MacFarlane’s Space Adventure Series THE ORVILLE

Seth MacFarlane is known to love genre, sci-fi and space shows.  Well, now he made one.  FOX has picked up MacFarlane’s space adventure series The Orville and the first-look pictures were released Monday. As The Verge points out, chances are good that this series will be a parody of classic space adventure shows; most specifically Star Trek.  The photos released feature a bridge and crew that are more than reminiscent and down-right referential of the original Star Trek series.   The content of the series has not been confirmed, so that’s all conjecture… but come on.  This looks fun.

The LOVE ACTUALLY Sequel Has an Official Trailer

It’s the official trailer for everyone’s most hated or most beloved Christmas movie, Love Actually. I fall into the latter category. Don’t get too excited though, it’s a 15 minute short, directed and written by Richard Curtis, for charity – Red Nose Day! Red Nose Day (rednoseday.org) is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc. (comicrelief.org), a registered U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity. Red Nose Day started in the U.K., built on the foundation that the power of entertainment can drive positive change, and has raised over $1 billion globally since the campaign’s founding in 1988.

George Michael’s Last Christmas: 2016 Claims Another Victim

Like others, I have been shocked repeatedly this year by the artists who have passed away. However, I didn’t break down when I heard that David Bowie or Alan Rickman or Leonard Cohen died. For me, the one that hit that hard was George Michael, who reportedly passed peacefully today, Christmas day.* I suppose there’s something poetic in his marking this day in this way, since Wham!’s “Last Christmas” is indisputably the best Christmas song of all time. But I would trade that poetic departure date for not having received the terrible news of his passing while eating Christmas dinner with...

It’s The Extended Trailer For Alice Through The Looking Glass!

Monday night during the Grammy Awards, we were able to catch the extended trailer for Alice Through The Looking Glass on CBS.  This sequel is six years in the making and features Pink with a cover of the Jefferson Airplane song, White Rabbit, and it’s amazing! Alice In Wonderland, originally directed by Tim Burton opened to mixed reviews but was a huge hit. I actually thought it was a lot of fun. The film was visually stunning. This time, Alice Through The Looking Glass is being produced by Tim Burton and directed by James Bobin who co-created Borat, Ali G and Bruno with Alice co-star Sacha Baron-Cohen, directed, co-created and wrote Flight Of The Concords, and directed the newest incarnations of The Muppet Movies. All projects that are uniquely funny and super entertaining.
