SF SATURDAY: SAM REID, MICHIEL HUISMAN IN '2:22' SF ROMANCE, ELLE FANNING, DIEGO LUNA IN 'IO' SF EPIC! 'DARKMOUTH' AND 'DESCENDER' SF BOOKS GET MOVIE ADAPTATIONS

'2:22' SF ROMANCE WITH
 SAM REID AND MICHIEL HUISMAN
Two new sf projects are looming over the horizon: first, new romantic sf thriller 2:22 will star shooting this year in Australia with charismatic Sam Reid joining Michiel Huisman (Game Of Thrones) and Teresa Palmer! Huisman will be Dylan Branson, a man whose life is permanently derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself in exactly the same manner every day, ending at precisely 2:22 PM. When he falls for Sarah (Teresa Palmer), a beautiful woman whose life is threatened by these strange events, Dylan must solve the mystery to preserve a love whose second chance has finally come. Sam Reid will play the rival love interest.
ELLE FANNING IN 'IO' SF FILM
The second sf project also has a very short title IO and will star Elle Fanning as a teen surviving as one of the last people on an abandoned post cataclysmic Earth, who is racing to find a cure for her poisoned home world before the last shuttle off the planet to the distant human space colony leaves her stranded. Diego Luna will play a complicated and mysterious refugee on his way to the shuttle launch who makes her question whether she can really alter Earth’s fate. Clay Jeter is directing.

NEW BOOK ADAPTATIONS
DARKMOUTH SF ADVENTURE
Two pieces of into on new big screen adaptations for you today, starting with DARKMOUTH an upcoming series of comedic fantasy adventure novels written by Irish author Shane Hegarty out this April! The story is set in the last town on Earth where monsters (known as Legends) still invade. Finn, the 12-year-old son of the last remaining Legend Hunter, must follow in his father’s footsteps and prepare for an epic battle to defeat the Legends as their terrifying leader plans a major attack on Earth. Unfortunately, Finn is one of the worst Legend Hunters in history.
'DESCENDER' SPACE OPERA
Meanwhile, Sony will adapt forthcoming sf comic book DESCENDER from Jeff Lemire, a sprawling space opera describing cosmic odyssey about a little boy looking for home in a universe that fears him. The incredibly lifelike artificial boy, TIM-21, may hold the secrets deep in his machine DNA to the origin of robots that have decimated entire planets. As a result, he is the most wanted robot in the universe. Before long the entire galaxy is looking for TIM-21 and his rag-tag group of unlikely companions, as they make their way from one exotic planet to the next with new foes advancing on them at every turn.

    1. You probably have Ellie Goulding or Elle Henderson in mind, this Elle is a child actress whose sister Dakota is also an actress

  2. It's all about, who rules the world or what's left of it. I'll wait for a nice documentary on sloths, thanks.

  3. A lot of sci-fi here. I love that genre.

    IO sounds like it'll be intense.

  4. Nothing striking my fancy here today. You know that sci-fi is not my cup of tea, but I hope others find today's news exciting.

    1. Sam Reid's love carpet ain't striking your fancy? :)

    2. Sounds a little too "Groundhogs Day" to me. Even with the romantic aspect, I just don't see it being something I'd get overly interested in.

    3. I love sf movies with such delicate twists, those usually stay in my mind the longest ... such as UPSIDE DOWN with Jim Sturgess or last year's SNOWPIERCER

  5. Those sf offerings sound good. And the book reminds me of The Greatest American Hero. My oldest son was in love with that show (the guy couldn't work his superhero suit well to save his life) until my son saw a Superman movie. lol

  6. I wonder if 2:22 can beat The Edge of Tomorrow. So far the latter has been my favorite in terms of event /time related movie plots.
