Hugh Jackman....or Elvis Presley's Ghost?



http://www.flicksandbits.com/2013/04/30/bryan-singer-teases-hugh-jackmans-wolverine-on-the-set-of-x-men-days-of-future-past/46046/



In other news, Hugh Jackman in old age makeup was spotted in the latest Ben Stiller movie. Like "X-Men: Days of Future Past", we never see his face.

Universal Studios and Bryan Singer Still Have Plenty of Time in 2013 to Serve Up Another "Heaping Helping" of Their Fake "Battlestar Galactica" Press Releases



October 21st, 2011. Universal Studios and Bryan Singer were full of B.S. once again, just as they were in 2009, 2008, and 2001. "Where's John Orloff?" is presently being equated with "Where's Waldo?"


 

August 3rd, 2012. How do you do a follow-up to a "Fake Press Release?" You stutter your way through it just as Bryan Singer did when he was caught off guard with this question. Singer unsuccessfully tries to elaborate upon the "Fake Battlestar Press Release" from October 21st, 2011.

Universal Studios Can Start With Restoring The "6-Hour Pilot Version" of "Saga of a Star World" if it Wants to Learn How to Do Science Fiction Properly





http://www.byyourcommand.net/cylongallery/thumbnails.php?album=1265


What other deleted scenes (actually filmed) for "Saga of a Star World" were never seen by the general public...thanks to Glen A. Larson and ABC-TV taking a chain saw to all of the footage that Richard A. Colla originally shot?

1. Actor Jim Peck reporting on the progress of the armistice instead of Jane Seymour.



 

http://www.galactica.tv/battlestar-galactica-1978-interviews/jim-peck-galactica.tv-interview.html


2. Starbuck storming the bridge immediately after crash landing and demanding to know why Adama and Tigh pulled the Galactica out of battle.

3. Baltar surveying the surface of Caprica after the Cylon attack and threatening Adama during a conversation while two Cylons stood on either side of him.

4. Baltar surveying the interior of a destroyed home on the surface of Caprica, probably his own.

5. Additional scenes of Serina involving her illness.

6. Starbuck's card game seamlessly intercut with Apollo and Zac discovering the hidden Cylon attack force.

7. Lots of extra footage of the Ovions and Queen Lotay

8. The escape from Carillon (as originally shot by Richard A. Colla) with the Colonial Warriors wearing their battle uniforms instead of their dress uniforms.

9. Extra footage of the Carillon casino involving long panning shots and close-ups of the various alien creatures.

10. The complete scene of Sire Anton accusing Sire Uri of hoarding food and how he should be brought up on charges for doing so...and then the scene seamlessly blends into Apollo entering the discussion and how the fleet should traverse the "Nova of Madagon."


Yeah, I know. Universal Studios burned all of this extra footage decades ago.

Universal Studios "Oblivion" Suffers a 62% Loss in Business Since Last Week

                               
                         



http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/04/27/friday-box-office-pain-and-gain/

Wasn't I just saying the other day that nothing Universal Studios puts out in the Science Fiction genre ever has any staying power?

And wasn't I also saying the other day that this is where "Oblivion" will ultimately end up?


                         

The process is already beginning (after 1 week!!) where the public is already forgetting about the latest attempt at Science Fiction ("Oblivion") by Universal Studios. Soon, "Defiance" will be in this discount DVD bin as well...joining "GINO"...."Caprica"...."Blood & Chrome"...."Ice Spiders"...."Frankenfish"...."Gatorade"...."Area 51"....and "Sharktopus."

When you "Corporatize" (Crap-tize) Science Fiction via sucking all of the life and imagination out of it the way Universal Studios (NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel) always does in its patented second nature sort of way (both on television and in the movies), all of your productions will always end up in the discount DVD bin above....mixed in with "Bugs Bunny" and "Strawberry Shortcake."

While Universal Studios "Oblivion" Enjoyed a Strong Opening Weekend Due to No Other New Movies Competing With it..


                              



                        


Let's continue to analyze why NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel always fails at putting Science Fiction and Space Fantasy on movie and television screens...


1. This corporation (NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel) always retreads one theme and one theme only in all of its supposed Science Fiction productions for movie and television screens. The "Post - Apocalyptic Doom & Gloom...Everybody Wears Leather Jackets / Leather Jumpsuits / Three Piece Business Suits" scenarios. Not only has this corporation beaten this scenario to death with endless retreads on movies and television, but it has also beaten this scenario back to comatose, zombie life.

2. The SyFy Channel (in its endless naivete) still honestly believes that 14 year old boys who play video games will jump for joy if they see their favorite video games incarnated as a crappy mini-series or crappy 13 episode series on the SyFy Channel. It will never happen. 14 year old boys (and adults) just want to play their video games. Oh yeah, and consumers aren't the slightest bit interested in including the SyFy Channel in on the action.

3. You can't put crappy television programming on the air 99% of the time (WWF Wrestling, "Chico's Cosmic Kitchen, Weekly, trashy monster movies)...on what is supposed to be a science fiction channel...(as the SyFy Channel loves to do)...and then occasionally take a step in the right direction (1% of the time) with programming that appears to be the right thing to do...("Defiance")...and then expect television viewers en masse to spontaneously come back to your channel. That's not the way human nature of consumers is constructed. You screw them (consumers) once, and they will retaliate by screwing you forever. Once Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern drove away all of the former viewers of the former and great Sci-Fi Channel, they lost those viewers...forever.

4. NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel (if it wants to make serious money) needs to start exploring themes in Science Fiction that have rarely (if at all) been explored before. The happy, optimistic future. Fresh, new, and inspired concepts that aren't retreads of "Blade Runner", "Total Recall", "The Thing." Characters that are happy and well adjusted instead of "Manic-Depressive Sociopaths" -  The common characters of all NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel movie and television productions Science Fiction related.

5. NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel needs to stop having delusions of grandeur...in honestly believing they are cerebrally capable of building a Science Fiction franchise of some sort in the movies or television...with the present corporate staff they are stuck with currently working in the "Universal Studios Black Tower." These people have no talent and imagination whatsoever and couldn't "kick-start" a "Lemonade Stand Business" for a bunch of pre-schoolers.

And Two More Attempts at Science Fiction From NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel Cause Ripples Nowhere and Are Already Headed For Their Destiny






The destiny of "Oblivion" and "Defiance"....



 

Look for both productions very, very soon in the "$5.00 Discount DVD Bin" at Wal-Mart.

A Complete Psychological Profile of NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's Hatred of Science Fiction in General and "Battlestar Galactica"

                            


NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel doesn't just hate Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica." They loathe both, despise both, are repulsed by both. This is not a Science Fiction friendly corporation. This is not a "Battlestar Galactica" friendly corporation. Instead, NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel is a severely broken and dysfunctional corporation when it comes to the subjects of Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica."

Because NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel lacks the internal corporate talent to do anything constructive with Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica", they hate both and don't want to be bothered with both. This corporation lacks the business talent to envision and realize long term goals with Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica", so through the prism of its own corporate narrow mindedness, it only sees Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" in condescending terms because of its corporate inability to bring both to life with talent and imagination. If you don't have the talent and imagination to master something, you're going to SNEER at it. Human nature. And NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel has been a victim to it since day one. In their eyes, both deserve nothing more than an incorrect perception of their endless potentials.

In its cerebrally challenged and incorrect perception of Science Fiction, NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel offers television viewers nothing more than badly produced (and low budget)...."one off"....horror movies. Television programming having nothing to do with Science Fiction ("Chico's Cosmic Kitchen", "WWF Wrestling", "Haunted Highway.") Disposable "junk food" is how this corporation regards Science Fiction. What is perhaps the most interesting dysfunctional characteristic of NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel as a corporation, is they SNEER at what they don't have the talent to manage properly. They SNEER at true Science Fiction, they SNEER at the real "Battlestar Galactica" (the 1978 series.)

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel doesn't have one...not one....ongoing Science Fiction media franchise surviving from decade to decade ala' "Star Wars" and "Star Trek." Not only does this have everything to do with this corporation's full blown hatred of the entire Science Fiction genre and "Battlestar Galactica", but it also has everything to do with the fact that NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel does not perceive Science Fiction normally and healthily the way Paramount Pictures does and the way Walt Disney does. Both of these business rivals of Universal Studios perceive Science Fiction as something to be strategized for long term financial goals, whereas NBC-Universal /SyFy Channel (Universal Studios) regards Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" specifically as entities to be SNEERED at via quicky "one-off" projects" and badly produced projects ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome", "Sharktopus", "Frankenfish", "Ice Spiders", "Area 51.") Projects that vanish as quickly as they appear (into the Wal-Mart $5.00 Discount DVD Bin) with NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel reaping no long term financial goals from them.

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel will never get it right with Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" because this corporation will never stop hating and SNEERING at Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica." When Science Fiction is hated as much as this corporation hates it, no money will ever be made from it on the levels of "Star Wars" and "Star Trek." Thus, in the arenas of Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica", NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel is the "Homeless Corporate Entity" while Paramount Pictures Corporation ("Star Trek") and Walt Disney ("Star Wars") are living on "Easy Street."

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel spent the entire decade of the 2000s arguing with the general public on Internet bulletin boards (such as the now defunct http://www.Scifi.com/Galactica  forum) over the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and how it (according to them) should just remain dead. This in itself should be a damn good indication of how thoroughly screwed up, dysfunctional, and thoroughly out of touch with reality this corporation has always been towards Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica." When you throw in the astonishing extra element of them willing to argue with the general public for 10 years in order to try and force their ill-conceived and warped business perceptions upon the general public regarding "Battlestar Galactica", you have a corporation in dire need of spending long periods of time on a "Psychiatrist's Couch."

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel also has always regarded Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" as its mortal enemies to be SNEERED at, to be mismanaged on purpose ("Battlestar Galactica 1978"), and procrastinated with. Universal Studios has been making deliberately fraudulent (and misleading) press releases of a "Battlestar Galactica" movie supposedly being in production since 2001. And they're still making them at this late date (2013) with no end in sight.

"Battlestar Galactica 1978" would be the third largest, Space Fantasy franchise right now (right behind "Star Wars" and "Star Trek") and enjoying its 35th year of unprecedented business success with "Star Wars" & "Star Trek" sized profits, if the thoroughly dysfunctional corporation NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel had never owned it.

I suspect that Joss Whedon Will Finish This Movie Long Before Bryan Singer Ever Completes "X-Men: Days of Future Past"

Universal Studios May Be Playing The "Waiting Game" With "Battlestar Galactica", But Fans Are Also Playing The "Waiting Game" With Universal Studios

What are "Battlestar Galactica" fans waiting on? Waiting for Universal Studios to finish the job in destroying its own reputation as a valid, significant, and reputable supplier of science fiction based productions in television and the movies.

Bit by bit....inch by inch...yard by yard....For the past 35 years, Universal Studios has been gradually destroying its own reputation as a "to be taken seriously corporate entity" in the realms of "Battlestar Galactica" and science fiction in general. Their endless (and gradual) mismanagement of the SyFy Channel and the "Battlestar Galactica" property (over a period of time) has tightened the noose (reputation destruction) around their own corporate neck, and it has been a joy to behold!!

 
 
As Universal Studios latest, Fake "Battlestar Galactica" press release proved on October 21st, 2011...they are nothing more than the "movie maker equivalent" of the "National Enquirer" trashy tabloid magazine. File this latest "fake" press release of theirs in the same file as "Bigfoot sighted drinking tea with Elvis in Memphis."
 
                           
 
Since Bryan Singer hasn't had much of a movie career since the early 2000s, he might as well be a willing accomplice to the endless, fake "Battlestar Galactica" press releases coming out of Universal Studios since 2001. (What else does he have to do to occupy his time?) This "fake" press release from August 3rd, 2012 illustrates Bryan Singer "stuttering" himself into a bad reputation situation that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" probably won't be able to get him out of.
 
Since Bryan Singer has directed three previous (and consecutive, and commercially unsuccessful) really bad movies ("Jack The Giant Slayer", "Mockingbird Lane", and "Valkyire")...what guarantee is there that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be a good movie? If in fact, Bryan Singer really is directing it? When you combine this with Bryan Singer's astonishing and ever growing list of fake press releases from the past, where will this leave him career wise if "X-Men: Days of Future Past" sucks and fails commercially?

Now it's Just Playing The Waiting Game. Waiting For These Two Latest, "Fake" Press Releases From NBC-U / SyFy Channel to Fall Off The Face of The Earth

...And Never Happen!!


                                    
        


http://www.blastr.com/2013-4-10/syfy-developing-7-new-series-aliens-magic-angels-and-more


I suspect that sometimes the thoroughly dysfunctional "NBC-Universal Era"....Sci-Fi Channel"....goes through a "Mid-Life Crisis" and wishes it was younger, hipper, more talented, and as imaginative as these "Fake Press Releases" of theirs try to make themselves out to be. Of course, none of these projects will ever come to pass but NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel still enjoys "Blowing Stealth Marketing B.S." up everyone's rear end in the hopes that no one will ever notice that there forever shall be a "Severe Disconnect" between what the SyFy Channel actually is...versus....what they always try to make themselves out to be as in the B.S. Press Release displayed above.



                                 
             

"Battlestar Galactica 1978" on Blu-Ray??  This coming from the same studio that thoroughly trashed the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in 2003 with "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series!!" That infamous DVD set was littered with all sorts of manufacturing flaws including cracked and freezing discs, and the "1978 pilot episode" not being digitally remastered.

I doubt very much that Universal Studios will successfully navigate and master Blu-Ray technology for the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" simply because they never did successfully navigate and master standard DVD technology for the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

You don't learn how to fly a jet aircraft immediately after repeatedly falling off of a tricycle.

Oh yeah, and this press release is total B.S. as well because it will obviously never happen!!

Universal Studios strikes again!!

Universal Studios and Bryan Singer Keep Leaving Their Discarded "Fake" Press Releases All Over The Internet!!


I'm assuming Universal Studios never imagined that this "fake" Battlestar Galactica press release of theirs from October 21st, 2011 would still be an issue a year and a half later. Along with their other "fake" Battlestar Galactica press releases from 2009, 2008, and 2001.



Bryan Singer is a seasoned veteran of these "fake" Battlestar Galactica" press releases. The specific one here from August 3rd, 2012.

Oh, what the heck!! Let's just once again show all of the other "fake" press releases of Bryan Singer's while we're at it!!

This Usual and Expected Nonsense Between Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson Has Always Been Just The "Tip of The Iceberg" With "Battlestar Galactica"


                  


                               


        http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/inside-universals-ugly-battle-creator-438617


Is there any further proof needed that "Battlestar Galactica" has been owned by the worst possible corporate entity (Universal Studios) and individual (Glen A. Larson?) any property could be cursed with?

For 35 years, Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson have been unwilling and unable to get their own heads out of their own rear ends with this property. This latest lawsuit between the two of them of course, is just the "Tip of The Iceberg" in an endless series of astonishing bad decision making with this property between the two of them. First and foremost, Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson are as bad as the other one when it comes to the ownership of this property. The two of them have always been self absorbed, bean counting business entities who through some horrific twist of fate back in 1978, became the sole owners of this property ("Battlestar Galactica") originally created by former Universal executive George Santoros, scriptwriter Leslie Stevens, and director Richard A. Colla.

It's nothing new for Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson to be fighting over "Battlestar Galactica" (and other shows) whether the issue is copyright ownership or profit participation. This leads to the inevitable next question...

If "Battlestar Galactica" has caused so much stress, anxiety, and overall misery for Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson during the past 35 years, shouldn't the two of them just wash their hands of the entire property (and the entire matter taking form in court) and just sell the damn thing to someone else? "Galactica" fans worldwide would rejoice in the sale!! You kidding me? To finally be done with Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson's dysfunctional ownership of "Battlestar Galactica?" It would be Christmas Day...everyday....forever!!...to finally be rid of the two of them.

As a fan of this show, I have observed for 35 years that Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson were never suited to own this property. The two of them have had "Battlestar Galactica" tied up in endless legal nonsense spanning 35 years, and when the two of them somehow managed to "Reverse - Engineer" and "Jury-Rig" something for the television screen with the "Battlestar Galactica" brand name stamped on its forehead, It turned out to be steaming piles of horse s***...

1. Galactica: 1980
2. GINO
3. Caprica
4. Blood & Chrome

Those four productions listed above is a credible argument in itself that Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson have thoroughly not understood this property in any way, shape or form for the past 35 years (and quite frankly don't care.)

"Battlestar Galactica" (in the form of its 1978 pilot movie) came very close to being realized to its full potential by George Santoros, Leslie Stevens, and Richard A. Colla (Richard A. Colla interview / http://www.galactica.tv) before Glen A. Larson and the ABC-TV Standards & Practices Department did one hell of a "hatchet job" on what is / was believed to be a 6 hour pilot movie as it was originally produced and shot (in 1978) by George Santoros, Leslie Stevens, and Richard A. Colla, and gutted everything that made "Battlestar Galactica" great in that 1978 pilot film. With an ambivalent Universal Studios observing from the sidelines and not giving a s***.

Wake me when Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson manage to get themselves out of the courtroom once again, with the end result being "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica Series" remaining in "Sleeping Giant Limbo" once again.

Great way to spend the 35th anniversary of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series, huh?

Not Much Demand For these Guys at Science Fiction Conventions, is There?

 
 
Is this one of the cast members from a current legal drama on television? Nope!! It's one of the cast members from "Caprica." His shirt and tie threw me off for a minute. No science fiction convention in the world is asking for this guy to make an appearance. Perhaps partially due to the fact that no one knows who the hell he is.


                           

This guy has frowning down to a fine art. Just the sort of character a mass market science fiction audience would take to its collective heart. A manic depressive lead character. Edward James Olmos' chronic frowning for four seasons did nothing to erase the memory of the late great Lorne Greene as the only true Commander Adama. And Edward James Olmos also did not replace Lorne Greene as Commander Adama in any way.


                                                 



It's safe to say that we won't be seeing this guy at science fiction conventions either. "Blood & Chrome" failed to touch a mass market science fiction audience just like the other two productions above, was just a job to him and has moved on just as it was with the cast members of "Ice Spiders", "Frankenfish", "Gatorade", and "Area 51."

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's continued flair for making "Battlestar Galactica" as unattractive as possible to mass market science fiction audiences will always know no bounds. But their "Battlestar Galactica" stamped productions will always end up right in here....and not adored at science fiction conventions...


                                
 
 
NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's "chronic problem" with "Battlestar Galactica" always is, they only see it as a corporate instrument to be used for satisfying internal, sinister corporate agendas. Mass market entertainment attractiveness on a global scale is always out of the question for them with "Battlestar Galactica."
 
 
The hard knocks result for NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel? No one wants to remember these productions at science fiction conventions.
 
 
Perhaps these three shows ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome") weren't designed to have any staying power beyond their first broadcasts?

Whatever Became of....The SyFy Channel?




Bystander #1: "All I know is...the channel just went belly-up. It happened so suddenly. Just last night...I was watching "Chico's Cosmic Kitchen" and then...nothing. When I got up this morning and sat down with my sausage bagel and coffee...I went to the numbered channel SyFy Channel was usually on, and then.... "Poof!!"".....It's now a lingerie shopping channel."

Bystander #2: "There has been rumor...innuendo....here say. Last I heard, Bonnie Hammer is in spiritual retreat in Africa...David Howe is writing his memoirs....and Mark Stern is producing a game show / sitcom pilot."

Bystander #3: "I for one am furious!! I want to know why there has been no mention of it, not even on "Google" news!! Not even a damn "Tweet" from anybody!! Is there no mercy in the world?? Rest assured, I'm going to give Bill O'Reilly a piece of my mind!!"

Bystander #4: "Are there no slaughter houses and work prisons...to decrease the surplus population??"

Fourth quote courtesy of......."Charles Dickens Christmas Carol."

Whatever Became of....Ronald D. Moore, David Eick, and Bryan Singer?


 
 
Remember those three guys in the 2000's who always claimed to be more famous than what they actually were, and they always produced the sorriest excuses of horse manure trying to be passed off as Science Fiction and Fantasy? And they were still clinging on for dear life in the decade of the 2010's, grasping for any shred of a project that just might make them "A-List Talents?" What were their names?
 
Ronald D. Moore - Wasn't he a former "Star Trek" staff writer working for Rick Berman in the 1990s who then for some reason tried to act like a big shot when he tried to reimagine "Battlestar Galactica" and failed?
 
David Eick - Didn't he produce "Hercules" and "Xena - Warrior Princess" for syndication and then when on to trash "Battlestar Galactica" and "Bionic Woman" in disastrous (to say the least) remakes?
 
Bryan Singer - Wasn't he the "King of all Fake Press Releases" in the 2000's and 2010's with his list of aborted / fake projects that I just happen to have an archived copy of right here?
 
 
Bryan Singer's Aborted Project / Fake Press Release List - Volume 1

Is it Possible That Bryan Singer's Latest Supposed "Behind The Scenes Photo" Can Be Debunked?

   

 
 
 
 

 
For a supposedly recent "Behind The Scenes" photo of Patrick Stewart supposedly taken on the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past", Patrick Stewart looks awfully young in this photo. He looks like the Patrick Stewart circa 1987-1994. I'm going to do a little research and see if Patrick Stewart ever wore a uniform like this when he was working on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" from 1987 to 1994. Like maybe he could have gone down to a planet surface in undercover garb or something.
 
Odd that the film stock used to take this photo isn't High Definition and crystal clear as it would be today. Film stock looks 1980s, early 1990s?
 
 
                                   
 
 
This is the Patrick Stewart of today, a little older and much, much wiser.
