The year was 2006 and everyone was obsessed with the adventures of Peter Patrelli and Hiro Nakamura as they uncovered their new super-powers. Unfortunately, that awesome first season (1 parts Lost, 1 part X-Men), descended into mediocrity in Season 2, and pure crap by Season 3.
But now, long after we as a society decided to pretend those four years of television never happened, NBC is bringing back Heroes. We'll keep our fingers crossed, but it doesn't look very super in this trailer.
From 1995-2001, the show about an eponymous warrior princess out to redeem her past sins charmed many with it's campy sensibilities and striking lead actress, Lucy Lawless. Well, NBC wants to see if the magic is still there.
Before you feel all like:
You should know that the reboot is in it's infancy.
It's so early in the project's development, in fact, that the "modern reboot" is still searching for a writer. Thus, all info about the series — which was originally created by Tapert and John Schulian — is written in totally vague terms, as in the aforementioned THR news piece: the fact that "producers are said to be looking for a sophisticated and smart superhero for a new generation" doesn't give provide much in the way of concrete details, given that no one's expecting them to be looking for a dumb superhero for a bygone generation.
This show would join the large roster of 1990s television shows that are suddenly hurdling back at us, from Full House to next January's X Files miniseries.
But just think, we could here this fearsome battle cry again before too much longer.
Do you want reboots? Because this is how you get reboots?
The enormous recycling center that is Hollywood is at it again as it eyes a move towards updating the 1962 film King Kong vs. Godzilla for today's discernible audiences.
Based probably off the critical and financial success of last year's Godzilla reboot, movie executives are probably looking to put that boot on a new foot and have a clash of the titans that's not Clash of the Titans.
In a movie move that portends a clash of giant monsters, Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull is moving his untitled Skull Island King Kong film to Warner Bros. This is being done to unite the property with Legendary's other giant franchise, Godzilla. In what would be a pretty epic pairing, the Godzilla sequel that is in the works will be followed by a movie that pits the giant ape versus the giant fire breathing reptile. I'm told this is happening very quickly with moves going all the way to Japan, where Godzilla rights holder Toho is based.
The last one gave us some great gifs, so maybe we should hope for more of those at least.
