In the last scene of Galaxy Quest, we see the once-washed-up actors, previously stuck in a decades-long hell of fan expos and ribbon-cuttings, back on the airwaves in a brand new show for the next generation of sci-fi fans! …Or so we think. There’s actually much, much more to it. And it involves energy-hungry feds and…
Winter Storm Jonas pretty much has the East Coast stuck inside this weekend, which means that you’re probably sitting in front of your television scrolling through Netflix. Allow us to help.
By Grabthar’s Hammer! Galaxy Quest, the genius, underrated and ahead of its time scifi comedy is being developed into a TV show by Amazon. There’s no word on what direction they’re going with it, but the creative team remains the same.
We’ve seen some pretty great costumes thus far at Worldcon 2015—but our favorite thing thus far was this group of Thermians from the movie Galaxy Quest. They were doing the voices and the mannerisms and everything. But what if they’re real and that movie is a documentary? What then?
Making aliens look cute is a tricky thing to get right in kids’ entertainment. Make them too weird-looking, and you could freak out your audience. Make them too adorable, and you run the risk of them looking more like plush toys than creatures from another planet. And then sometimes you make them look cute... but…
There’s nothing more fun than looking at paintings and other artworks showing our favorite characters from science fiction. Except maybe... when they’re paintings on black velvet? Meet Bruce White, who depicts your favorite characters with the vibrance and luster of velvet Elvises.
Because everything you ever loved is coming back again (except Firefly), the 1999 comedy Galaxy Quest may be getting a second life, this time as a TV series. So who gets to play ersatz Captain Kirk this time?
Before Enrico Colantoni played Veronica Mars' dad and Elias on Person of Interest, he was the alien Mathesar in the classiccomedy Galaxy Quest. So when we were interviewing him about tomorrow night's earth-shattering Person of Interest episode, we had to ask him if he thought Galaxy Quest would ever get a continuation.
We've been talking about a Galaxy Quest sequel forever. But maybe, just maybe, the time is right, and the writer allegedly has an idea. Plus, what was in the Rated-R version we never saw?
On Friday, Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters, with its unique blend of space-opera and insane comedy. Which classic films must Guardians defeat to take its place among the greatest science fiction comedies? Here are the 13 greatest (live-action) science fiction comedies of all time.
A lot of people seem to think "funny" equals "light-weight." Like a comedy can't deal with important issues, or pack a huge emotional punch. But decades of science fiction and fantasy comedy prove otherwise. Which funny story actually hits you where it counts, more than most "serious" dramas do?
There's no way to prepare you for the insanity of Space Station 76. It's a comedy set in a mid-1970s version of the future that looks like Space: 1999. But it's also a surprisingly dark character study of people who are slowly falling apart, which owes a lot to The Ice Storm. Here's our nearly spoiler-free first…
Galaxy Quest is a brilliant spoof of Star Trek. It's also one of the two or three best Star Trek movies. That's how I feel about The Lego Movie, which is both a perfect satire of noisy toy-driven summer action movies, and also an absolutely perfect summer movie in its own right. A few months early.
Science fiction and fantasy can expand your mind and thrill your senses — but they can also make you laugh your head off. Some of the funniest books, movies and TV shows are science fiction. But what's the funniest fantasy or science fiction comedy ever?
The world is full of movie sequels that nobody asked for. But then, there are some other films, which charmed us once and then disappeared without overstaying their welcome. Which movie would you actually pay good money to see a sequel to?
The world is full of movies that don't need a sequel, a remake, or a reboot — and then there's the Star Trek spoof Galaxy Quest, which left us wanting more. Flavorwire talked to Breaking Bad producer Mark Johnson, and asked him what's up with the Galaxy Quest sequel. Here's what he said.
Dating is hard. And instigating first-contact with a fellow humanoid can be the hardest part. Luckily, we geeks have our own special language, made up of quotes and in-jokes. Some of which makes for some excellent pick-up lines, that you can always resort to in an emergency situation.
Many of our favorite movies feature quiet, introspective moments or deep philosophical discussions in between the scenes where everything is exploding and everyone is running in every possible direction. And that's great. But sometimes, you just want a movie that hits the ground running, and keeps running at top…
Just about every actor who's famous today has dabbled in science fiction early in his or her career. You can barely watch late-night reruns of science fiction shows or classic movies without spotting one of today's A-list actors. (And it turns out Joseph Gordon-Levitt's first genre role wasn't Third Rock after all.)
Galaxy Quest isn't exactly a movie you'd expect to attract an R rating. After all, the parody of scifi TV shows and their fandoms is already pretty perfect with its innocent aliens and a nod to female eye candy who looks particularly stellar in a tight military uniform. But somewhere out in the universe, there lurks a…
