'Sanctuary' Returns to SyFy

Sanctuary_S2_DVDSyFy’s SANCTUARY returns tonight, after a nearly four month hiatus, with Pax Romana.
When last seen Helen Magnus (Ammanda Tapping) and her eclectic bunch were seemingly executed in the lost world hidden under the surface of the Earth.
Look for a leaner meaner second half of the third season of the series.
Interviewed at Blastr.com star/producer Tapping said:

“Parts of the season feel really hand-to-mouth.After what happens when we come back…  it’s sort of blown the Sanctuary world wide open, and so there’s a massive amount of hand-to-mouth survival. And we do a couple of really small, sweet singular episodes within that, but then we just kind of keep getting hit… There’s a lot of kind of singular—just getting-whacked-in-the-side-of-the-head-with-a-2-by-4 episodes.”

Co-star Robin Dunne (Will Zimmerman ) added:

“It’s a crazy ride, and you’re going to see us in different times and in different dimensions and the impact that Magnus has had on history… And it’s interesting, too, to be at this point talking about it, because the first half is really the lead-up, and the second half of season three really is where things get crazy with Kate (Kate Freelander, played by Agam Darshi) .”

SANCTUARY airs Fridays at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

runaways_mainAfter much rumor and speculation, it appears that Marvel Comic’s THE RUNAWAYS will soon be heading for celluloid. According to a Twitter post from Production Weekly, the film is set to shoot in the first half of 2011.
Unaware of the comic and not sure if you should be excited? Here is a quick summary of what to expect: The story circles around six kids whose parents get together once a year for a charity event. All seems normal until one year, they stumble upon a secret gathering and learn the awful truth – their parents are collectively known as The Pride, a criminal organization comprised of mob bosses, mad scientists, dark wizards, and time travelers. Not only that, but the kids each realize that they’ve gained some of their parents powers, including telepathic links to dinosaurs, mutant strength, and a penchant for futuristic gadgets. The comic debuted in April of 2003 and was created by Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona.
Rumor has it that NICK AND NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST director Peter Sollett may be tapped to direct but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. As the buzz builds, more concrete news to follow. Stay tuned for more info!
