In the 5DNEWS this week Stuart & Zack talk about some more The Lord Of The Rings TV series news with the announcement this week that production for season 2 will move from New Zealand to here in the UK. Zack also has some venom 2 related news with the movie’s release date being put back….again.

Ep 157: 5D Podcast Special - Marina Sirtis Interview.


It’s a definite special type of podcast this week as actress Marina Sirtis joins us for a telephone conversation!

Listen as we talk about her reasons for moving back to the UK after 30+ years of living in the States, her West End appearance in Dark Sublime a couple of years ago…and yes, of course there’s a little bit of chat about Star Trek: The Next Generation and her recent reprisal of Deanna Troy in Star Trek: Picard. The conversation is all nicely rounded off with some football talk as Marina talks about her love of Spurs we counter with our love of Leeds United.

Ep 155: 5D Podcast Special. A Journey through Australian genre cinema….Featuring iconic actor, Vernon Wells

 


This week’s podcast episode is something of a delight - a special edition that sees a collaboration between our good selves (well, minus 5D co-host Zack, who unfortunately had unavoidable obligations elsewhere) and the The Sydney Science Fiction Film Festival (SSFFF) https://www.sydneysciencefictionfilmfestival.com.au -  Australia's newest celebration of sci-fi and fantasy genre film. 

Simon Foster & Travis Johnson REALLY know their stuff when it comes to their country’s genre heritage; Simon is the festival director of SSFFF, the managing director of www.screen-space.net and also the co-host of the Screen Watching Podcast. If that wasn’t enough he’s also a film industry journalist with over 30 years experience as a reviewer and broadcaster. Travis is a steering committee member of the SSFFF (in 2020 he hosted a live-stream panel on the Cyberpunk sub-genre. He’s the co-host on the Screen Watching Podcast and also the founder of Celluloid and Whiskey website. If that wasn’t enough he also reviews for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, among many others.

To say recording this episode was an enjoyable experience would be a certain understatement - because not only does it feature some chat with two hugely knowledgable guys from SSFFF, but it also features a surprise guest appearance from an icon of Australian (and indeed worldwide) genre cinema.....who for now shall remain nameless. Yes, I know......I’m just one big tease.

Bruce Campbell Bio:

In 1979 with his Detroit friends, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell raised $350,000 for a low-budget film, The Evil Dead (1981), in which he starred and co-executive produced. Completed piecemeal over four years, the film first gained notoriety in England where it became the best-selling video of 1983, beating out The Shining(1980). After its appearance at Cannes, where Stephen King dubbed it “the most ferociously original horror film of the year”, New Line Cinema stepped forward to release “Evil Dead” in the U.S.
Campbell then rejoined his Detroit colleagues to star and co-produce the second and third films in the Evil Dead trilogy (Evil Dead II (1987) & Army of Darkness (1992)), completing 12 years of work on the cult favorite.

*

This rough-and-tumble background was a plus as Campbell made his foray into television, first starring in the highly touted Fox series The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. (1993), then as a recurring guest-star on the hit show Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993).
With these under his belt, Campbell easily made the transition to director, helming numerous episodes and recurring as the King of Thieves in the #1 syndicated Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995), and its follow-up phenomenon, Xena: Warrior Princess(1995).

*

Bruce has since expanded his range on television, appearing in anything from Disney’s update of The Wonderful World of Disney: The Love Bug (1997), to decidedly dramatic turns on the acclaimed series Homicide: Life on the Street (1993) and The X-Files (1993). At the invitation of ABC, Campbell ventured into the world of sitcoms with a recurring role on ABC’s Emmy- nominated Ellen (1994), participating in one of the three touted “out” episodes. Campbell then directed and starred as himself in My Name Is Bruce (2007), a spoof of his B-movie career, then re-teamed with Disney for their fun-filled hit, Sky High (2005).

*

In 2013, Bruce co-produced the hit remake of Evil Dead (2013), joined his filmmaking pal Sam Raimi on Oz The Great and Powerful (2013), and completed an impressive seven-year run on the spy show, Burn Notice (2007) (2007-2013), USA’s #1 show on cable. More than two decades after the release of Army of Darkness (1992), Bruce returned to his most iconic role for Ash vs Evil Dead (2015), a highly-anticipated series premiering on the Starz network on Halloween 2015.
