HBO smartly used the season finale of the well-received “True Detective” Season 3 to showcase some of their upcoming highlights – among them, the feature spin-off of David Milch’s cussing-cowboy epic “Deadwood”.

In the film, which reunites the cast of the Emmy-winning series (including Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane), the characters of the series are reunited after 10 years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.

Milch wrote the feature with Daniel Minahan serving as director.

There’s also brief peeks at “His Dark Materials”, “Watchmen”, “Eurphoria” and other series heading to the cabler this year.

Rumored for release before mid-year, “Deadwood” is expected to be the first in a series of new movies based on the TV series.

Last we heard Fox’s long-long-delayed “New Mutants” movie had been commissioned for some extensive reshoots, after which the studio would finally release the movie. But with no start date on those reshoots, and a film seemingly just sitting on the shelves to gather dust, one wonders whether the film will even get a release at all?

Short answer : Yes, it will get a release – it just mightn’t be the theatrical release “X-Men” fans, and those involved in the Josh Boone-directed ‘horror’ film, were originally anticipating.

According to Vanity Fair, “The New Mutants” looks to be somewhat of a ‘casualty’ of the Disney-Fox merger, with all signs pointing to a small-screen premiere for the film on Disney’s upcoming streaming service. With Disney planning to reboot the “X-Men” franchise shortly, the studio have no further plans for “New Mutants” beyond the release, and considering their obvious lack of faith in the film, seem convinced that a Disney+ premiere is the best way to go.

Reshoots for the film would’ve reportedly involved adding “Logan” heroine X-23 to the cast of characters in the film.

The movie, conceived of as the first in a trilogy, stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga. In it, a group of young mutants held in a secret facility fight to save themselves. Boone wrote the script with Knate Lee.

The film was originally due for release in March 2018.

“The New Mutants” is currently skedded for an August theatrical release in both the US and Australia.

Throughout the coming year, fans will have multiple ways to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ”Farscape”, which first premiered on March 19, 1999. In addition to the launch on Prime Video, enthusiasts can expect fan events and various licensing initiatives including a special edition vinyl soundtrack release from Music.Film Recordings and Var’se Saraband this summer. Collectors can look for products from Chronicle Collectibles, Toy Vault, and Trevco in the coming months. ‘Scapers’ (”Farscape” fans) are encouraged to follow the official ”Farscape” social channels using the fan-created hashtag #FarscapeNow for specific Prime Video territory details and any upcoming announcements.

“Farscape is one of my most favorite productions, and I am so honored by the ‘Scapers’ who continue to love it and share it with other sci-fi fans. Premiering the series and the beautiful HD remastered mini-series on Prime Video is a great way to celebrate the 20th anniversary with the Farscape community,” said Brian Henson, chairman of The Jim Henson Company and executive producer of Farscape.

Fusing live-action, digital effects, and state-of-the-art puppetry and prosthetics from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, ”Farscape” has been hailed by TV Guide as one of the 25 Best Cult TV Shows. Emmy-nominated and winner of two Saturn Awards, ”Farscape”, created by Rockne S. O’Bannon, was the first original series to air on SYFY. It went on to gain a loyal international fan following that has propelled multiple ancillary products including comics, collectibles, games, and publishing.

”Farscape” follows astronaut John Crichton who, during an experimental space mission, is hurled across a thousand galaxies to an alien world. In his quest to return to Earth, he finds himself aboard a starship populated by escaping political prisoners from a variety of alien cultures. Crichton must rise to the challenge of surviving in a world he barely understands, keeping one step ahead of the pursuing Peacekeepers, a race of deadly mercenaries who will stop at nothing to capture him.
