HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN TO TOPLINE PARAMOUNT'S FANTASY EPIC ACTION MOVIE 'MARCO POLO'! FIRST 'DARK MATTER' SF SERIES TRAILER AND CAST PHOTO

HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN TO
LEAD 'MARCO POLO' EPIC MOVIE
Years ago I told you that Paramount will team up with China Film Group to produce a lavish new big screen version of MARCO POLO and now the production is on the way with the casting of Hayden Christensen in the lead role! As 'Hollywood Reporter' writes today, Rob Cohen will direct the fantasy action movie on the Venetian merchant who embarked on a 24-year journey into China in the 13th century. His adventures later were chronicled in a book that is widely considered to be the introduction of Chinese culture to Europeans. As you know Netflix has made a show on him last winter with the second season under production too.

'DARK MATTER' SF SHOW 
FIRST TRAILER AND CAST PHOTO
Earlier this week I announced that SyFy's new sf series DARK MATTER will have worldwide airing in 86 countries this June and now we have the trailer and cast photo! The story will follow the crew of a derelict spaceship who are awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets.

  2. I just finished watching Netflix's series on Marco Polo last week. It was pretty good, so I'll probably be interested in a movie version, too.

    1. Yep, it was deadly boring at the beginning and became better after the sixth or seventh episode

    2. That's true. I watched the first episode and thought "meh." But a few months later I tried again and it got much better. :)

    3. I wanted to give up after the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth episode... but people kept telling me it gets better and it did but only in the last three episodes LOL I hated how dark the whole series was visually. Why would you spend gazillions on the sets and then wrap them in darkness?

  10. Dark Matter looks awesome!

    I tried to like Marco Polo on Netflix, but it eventually just got boring. Love the costumes and the setting, but the story lost its luster after awhile. Hopefully the big screen version will be better.

    1. Marco Polo gains momentum only after episode 7. That is when they go to set siege on the Chinese capital
