If Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar were to engage in a successful television phenomenon it would be a significant to return to television for both of them. Williams hasn’t been a television regular since Mork & Mindy, and while Gellar recently graced screens in Ringer, the show was short lived. And that’s what, according to Deadline, is happening.
There she is, the Girl on Fire! io9 has a great collection of fan art gathered from all around the internet of the characters and scenes from The Hunger Games, including this one by DeviantART user Muchacha10. They are awesome and free of spoilers!
Fans who revere Joss Whedon’sBuffy the Vampire Slayer can breathe a slight sigh of relief today. The screenwriter responsible for writing the Buffy reboot film has apparently done a terrible job! Does this mean the film is done for? Not quite, Slayers.
Comic-Con, what goodies you bring us! Seriously, keep it coming. First new footage from Star Wars, now the first real glimpse of Buffy’sSarah Michelle Gellar‘s return to television. Will she be able to follow in the footsteps of Alison Hannigan and David Boreanaz and forge a successful television career separate from her Whedonite roots? We’ll have to wait until after Ringer premieres this fall to even begin to get an answer to that, but in the meantime, here’s an extended preview of the CW show.
We’ve gotta say: It may not be going for the geek audience (you know they’ll get it anyway), but this show seems to have a lot of potential. It looks pretty dark, so we’ve got to wonder just how twisty it’s going to get.
Joss Whedon, being King of the Fanpeople, inspires many a passionate opinion. Now, a female fan who on Youtube goes by “Sexy Nerd Girl,” has composed a rap about the wonders and joys of Joss Whedon and his creations to put said passion to work. She very quickly starts singing about her desire to get down and dirty with The Whedon to reinvent the meaning of “fangasm,” which makes things a bit uncomfortable for a minute. But c’mon, let’s be real. You know you’ve thought about it, too. And in the end she decides not to sleep with him, not because he’s married with kids, but because she wouldn’t want to risk their encounter backfiring and affecting the brilliance of his work.
She covers most of the prerequisite basis for entry into the Whedonverse–Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Toy Story, and even that song he wrote for The Lion King. If only she’d mentioned his work on Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
Recently on The Awl, Melissa Lafsky said that Scream 4 was the “first mainstream feminist horror movie.” I think that’s a bit short-sighted, considering there were (obviously) three equally feminist-friendly movies before that in the same franchise. Scream was never meant to be a typical horror movie – it was meant to turn the genre upside down.
