5 photosPretty Pictures from Steven Spielberg's 'Terra Nova'

Though we never got that sneak preview that Steven Spielberg promised, we do have a new trailer for Fox’s “Terra Nova.” This look at the series shows a bit more of how sucky the year 2149 is as well as a lot more of the action we’ll see in the pre-historic past.

Not only will Jason O’Mara have to worry about his kids being eaten by dinosaurs, but he’ll also have to deal with bad guys. Kind of gives the show the cool feeling that”The Walking Dead” has where the main character needs to maintain justice while dealing with this extreme survival situation. Also dinosaurs eat people on this show and that’s awesome 98% of the time (the Carnosaur films brought down the average).

I understand that Conan The Barbarian is a complete and total badass. Poin taken. However, in the newly released poster below, the man is shirtless, completely surrounded be armored dudes with spears and swords, plus arrows are flying his way. Yet, the only scratch I can see is a tiny little one near his waistline. I’ll believe that the guy can murder all these assholes and their friends & families in one afternoon, but one tiny cut? I assume his frowny-face is because he does not have a Spongebob Band-Aid for his barely noticeable boo-boo.

Lionsgate‘s Conan The Barbarian stars Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang and Ron Perlman. Directed by Marcus Nispel, it’s coming to you in GrimaceVision 3D on August 19, 2011. Conan‘s violence-filled quest is the last hope for saving the Hyborian world from the forces of evil. Meanwhile, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that “Conan The Librarian” exists. I bet that Conan at least got two or three paper cuts. (IGN)

Those left cold by the absence of Davi Paul Boreanaz from the silver screen since 2001′s Valentine can rest easy. He’s hard at work on a new film and, no, it’s not a direct-to-DVD Crow sequel co-starring Edward Furlong and Tara Reid. The “Angel” and “Buffy” star will spend his summe break from “Bones” filming the indie Officer Down.

Directed by first-timer Brian A. Miller, Officer Down tells the story of a doctor and a security guard who see one another’s daily lives while dream. Their paths cross when the security guard murders his wife, gets hit by a car and is brought into the ER. It could happen to any of us. Boreanaz will play an ambitious rival to Stephen Dorff‘s detective character. Also starring are Dominic Purcell, James Wood, Stephen Lang and AnnaLynne McCord. So, at the very least it has the James Woods stamp of quality. (Deadline)

This new look at Fox’s “Terra Nova” teaches us that though the characters live in a dystopian shit-pit where you need to wear dirty breathing masks and huddle together for warmth, the technology is still totally awesome. Look at that tablet! It’s totally transparent. That way everyone on the train will know that you’re secretly looking at photos of Blake Lively. Even their Stargates look cooler!!

Why would anyone want to leave that place? Sure, the air sucks and the lighting makes reading difficult but at least you can play Portal.

Conan The Barbarian is turning into some kind of ancient hippie fest. First we see a trailer that looks like a series of pot smoke visions. Now we get a balding, long-haired villain with a graying ponytail. What’s next? Does Conan travel around in a van?

Below is the pic of Khalar Zym in the remake of Conan The Barbarian, directed by Marcus Nispel (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre“). That’s Stephen Lang (Avatar) looking, perhaps, a little ticked off about something. Maybe it’s cause Zym takes no pleasure in killing Conan’s family and destroying his village. An ancient Middle Eastern warlord’s gotta do what an ancient Middle Eastern warlord’s gotta do. Nothing personal, just business.

The film slaughters its way into 3D theaters August 19th, along with stars Jason Mamao (“Stargate: Atlantis”), Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan. (Latino Review)

‘Conan The Barbarian’ Is Smokin’ In Teaser Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/conan-the-barbarian-is-smokin-in-teaser-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/conan-the-barbarian-is-smokin-in-teaser-trailer/#comments Sat, 12 Mar 2011 01:24:06 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=201355 There are some gray dudes, a slave lady, and a nice helping of sword sound effects. So far, so good.

The teaser trailer for Conan The Barbarian is online and it’s smokin’. No, not in a The Mask kind of way, with the Tex Avery impressions and the “Cuban Pete.” I just mean there’s literally a lot of smoke in the trailer for some reason. Nothing says “from an ancient time” like “here is a shit-load of smoke.”

Also featured: some gray dudes, a hot slave lady, and a nice helping of sound effects from the “Battles, Magic, and Swordplay: Movie Sound Effects Library.” Seriously, though, the trailer did pique my curiosity, and I’m looking forward to seeing more. Hopefully with less smoke and more folks. Topless folks, that is.

Conan The Barbarian is directed by Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and stars Jason “Tempted” Momoa as the non-Arnold barbarian. The cast also includes Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan, and Stephen Lang. The film brutally invades theaters August 19th in 3D. (Collider)

Dinosaurs, man. What if? That’s the question that Steven Spielberg wants to ask (again). The Super Bowl showed us more than just robots, superheroes, pirates, aliens, topless Olivia Wilde, and douchebags. It also showed us which programs Fox hopes they won’t have to cancel this fall.

The network has teamed up with Spielberg to produce “Terra Nova,” a show that sends a family 85 million years into the past to find the key to rebuild a deadened Earth. What they find instead are the leftovers from the Avatar set that James Cameron didn’t have the heart to scrap. Waterfalls, rainforest, and Stephen Lang. But he may be playing a good guy this time as evidenced by his beard. All the best people throughout history had beards — Darwin, Abraham Lincoln, Santa, Steven Spielberg, Kenny Rogers, writers during the Writers Strike, and your uncle who is perpetually struggling to get his landscaping business off the ground. You’ll get there Uncle Mike. Just keep pruning. Just keep pruning.

Fox premiered the first clips of their upcoming dinosaur time travel series “Terra Nova” at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. Images of people in the future wearing gas masks on the subway gave way to a lush tropical environment 85 million years ago. Paradise is short lived though, because thumping noises start to boom and characters get jerked out of frame.

The show, produced by Steven Spielberg, is about a family from the future who go back to the time of dinosaurs to start a new life for humanity. And dinosaurs eat them while they’re on the toilet, we hope. Alex Graves, director of the pilot, promised big thrills for the whole family.

“It’s not a scary show,” Graves said. “It’s an adventure show. My kids, I have young kids, they’ve already seen some of it and they loved it. They’re not scared. It’s not scary in that way. It’s adventure scary, not scary scary. What we know about the Cretaceous period is a lot of nice things. It was a lush period, the beginning of flowers. It really goes into the types of dinosaurs in the fossil record, and the gray area of the fossil records of where were dinosaurs in evolution and were they evolving into birds.”

Series producer Brannon Braga, of “24” and “Star Trek” fame, teased some of the dinos he’s flat out making up. “We have dinosaurs we know existed from the fossil record but you get to make up your own dinosaurs as well,” Braga said.

“Terra Nova” will get a spring premiere, then return for the full series. It worked for “Glee,” although they came back in the fall and “Terra” is not due until 2012. The premiere is a full two hour event though.

“It always kind of was 2 hours,” Graves said. “The story was. The whole dilemma, I think it started as an hour script like most pilots and yet you just read it and it never felt like an hour.”

Braga added, “We had too much story and we struggled for a long time to figure out how to fit it all into 60 pages. There was a meeting at the network where we were all looking at each other going what are we going to do? Let’s make it a 2 hour. Then it started to breathe and there were challenges of making it 2 hours.”

The Terra Nova community was first set up by scientists who discovered the portal to another time. The show will answer the time travel questions, but you shouldn’t worry too much about the science.

“That stuff’s all there,” Braga said. “It’s not really what it’s all about. It was an accidental discovery they capitalized on. We found this naturally occurring thing that goes back 85 million years. We don’t know why but let’s build a thing around it.”

Now that they’ve established the community of Terra Nova in the past, they’re populating it with doctors, craftsmen and regular families. The enclosure that is Terra Nova itself looks environmentally friendly, a frontier style wall with some future technology like solar panels. This ain’t Avatar though. It’s not all environmentalist.

“It’s not what the show’s about,” Braga said. “It is about a second chance for earth but earth can only be saved if people restore it themselves and not bring with it the baggage they leave behind. That’s the philosophical crux of the show. Can utopia be built? Is it possible?”

Look for the preview of “Terra Nova” this May, and more interviews with the cast and creators here on Screen Junkies.
