    Patrick Troughton's Death UL - Making Sweet Sci-Fi Love

    Villeneuve's Dune Films

    Probably deserves its own thread, the trailer leaked earlier but has since been taken down. It was in poor quality and didn't give much away. The Fremen looking pensive and many shots of Arakis, there was a fat bloke in mud, Barron Harkonen perhaps? It'll probably be properly released in the...

    Babylon 5

    OK I'll nail my colours to the mast and say this is is my favourite Sci Fi series on TV. Anyway it appears there is a new project coming (pos. a film): http://bboard.scifi.com/bboard/browse.cgi/1/5/1957/1440597 Announcements couldn't be made before the 15th of Jan so something might be...
