The In­side Skinny

SFX - - Welcome -

Lov­ing the first trailer for

The Man From UN­CLE – it looks like a hell of a lot of fun.

Fan­tas­tic Four go­ing In­ter­stel­lar? Not en­tirely sold on the trailer, but the hard sci- fi tone has my ap­petite whet­ted.

RANTS Why have Bri­tish TV mak­ers fallen out of love with sci- fi and fan­tasy? Be thank­ful for the US!

RAVES Check out this YouTube chan­nel of loops of am­bi­ent sound from SF films:­bi­en­tSF. It’s hyp­notic. Re­ally en­joyed the pi­lot of The Man In The High Cas­tle. It’s not quite SFX fare, but James Goss’s darkly

hu­mor­ous novel Haterz is a very cathar­tic read for any­one who loathes id­iots on the in­ter­net.

RAVES CBee­bies show Hey

Duggee is a spot- th­e­sub­tle- ref­er­ences fest with a crack­ing theme tune. I might love it more than my kids. Er, more than my kids do. Yeah. Pumped for the next Attack! Pro Wrestling show in Bris­tol, fea­tur­ing such lurid leg­ends as Ol’ Poppa Sun­flower, Ele­phant Mask and the com­pellingly creepy Love Mak­ing De­mon.

RAVES Am dead ex­cited that Spidey will fi­nally get to hang out with the other Avengers on the big screen. X- Men next please! Chris Pratt’s the only guy that can play new Indy, as far as I’m con­cerned.

Rants Dis­ap­pointed that the new FF trailer had to feel so dour. And what’s with that logo?!

Raves Ever go to the cinema to watch a film that you think is a bit rub­bish, but turns out to be bet­ter than you thought? Well that film for me was Padding­ton! What a great Bri­tish pro­duced film that was. Okay it’s not SF, but it’s fan­tasy. How many talk­ing bears do you see in Lon­don? Spe­cial thanks to Lucy Atkins for per­suad­ing me to go see it. I’ll re­turn the favour by tak­ing her to see Star Wars.

Laura Driffield Mar­ket­ing Manager

Raves Car­rie- Anne Moss in Jes­sica Jones? Amaz­ing! I’ve re­cently been walk­ing around in my long win­ter coat, pre­tend­ing to be Trinity from The Ma­trix, so this ex­cites me. I’m par­tic­u­larly ex­cited about the Back To The

Fu­ture 30th an­niver­sary this year. Christo­pher Lloyd at Lon­don Film & Comic Con! Eek!

RAVES Ah, Agent Carter. My world is bet­ter for hear­ing Hay­ley Atwell’s cut- glass de­liv­ery of the words “Bloody Nora”, “Crikey O’Reilly”, “Knick­ers” and, best of all, “Ut­ter wanker.” Of­fi­cially ex­cited by that first glimpse of

SPEC­TRE film­ing in Aus­tria. And if a be­hindthe- scenes video looks that good, how stunning should the film look?

Jor­danFar­ley Com­mu­nity Edi­tor


Happy to see The Man In The High Cas­tle has got a full se­ries at Ama­zon. Hav­ing a lot of fun smash­ing zom­bie nog­gins in Dy­ing Light.

Rants Hit by in­fi­nite sad­ness af­ter watch­ing the last episode of Fu­tu­rama and re­al­is­ing there’ll ( prob­a­bly) be no more.

Rus­sell Lewin Pro­duc­tion Edi­tor

RAVES My cam­paign to get Tobey Maguire back as Spidey starts here. Look out for To­tal Film/ SFX bookazine The

Ul­ti­mate Guide To Sci- Fi Movies, which I edited. It fea­tures the 50 genre flicks you must see. Cur­rently read­ing Michel Faber’s Un­der The Skin; it’s quite a bit dif­fer­ent to the film and kinda icky. Read­ing it at lunchtimes was a mis­take.

Dave Bradley

Group Ed- in- Chief

RAVES Spi­der- Man’s com­ing to the MCU! Maybe this great news means we’ll see ol’ Web­head in the big screen’s Civil War sto­ry­line. Per­haps Marvel will use Miles Mo­rales from the Ul­ti­mate uni­verse? Stay­ing with Marvel: loved the Fan­tas­tic Four trailer. I just want them to tell a thrilling story, it doesn’t trou­ble me at all that it has a dif­fer­ent feel to the four- colour clas­sics.

RAVES Af­ter watch­ing the first four episodes of Agents

Of SHIELD I gave up on it, but hav­ing stum­bled upon an ep from sea­son two while chan­nel­hop­ping I was amazed at the im­prove­ment.

RANTS I’ve seen two films and a TV se­ries re­cently all with the same end­ing of “I am ev­ery­where!”:

Tran­scen­dence, Lucy and Ex­tant. No more!

Rhian Drinkwa­ter

Free­lance Writer

RAVES Read The Moon King by Neil Wil­liamson – a re­ally su­perb fan­tas­ti­cal novel. Head­ing to the Doc­tor

Who Ex­pe­ri­ence in Cardiff in a few days – I loved it last year but am look­ing for­ward to see­ing the Ca­paldi changes. So ex­cited for Juras­sic World. The first film is one of my all- time faves and this looks like it may fi­nally re­cap­ture the won­der of the orig­i­nal.
