Tuesday Link-A-Mania

Stargate producer Dean Devlin has dropped some more tantalising clues in the breadcrumb trail that will hopefully lead to a successful franchise reboot. Devlin and director Roland Emmerich seem keener than ever to bring about a new Stargate movie, hinting that a reboot may follow original plans for the series that were cut short when the franchise expanded into television...

You’d think Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer would be taking a well-deserved break after their success with X-Men: Days of Future Past , but according to this image posted by Singer, work on the sequel is already well underway. It’s safe to say we can expect a guaranteed appearance from the four horsemen of the apocalypse...

The roleplaying game Fighting Fantasy is about to unite its fans with a convention. Fighting Fantasy Fest will be held on 7 th September at the DoubleTree Hilton in Ealing, West London. Creators Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone will be attending, alongside a team of artists including Chris Achilleos and Russ Nicholson- all the more reason to get yourselves down to London this autumn! Ticket details here .

Movie streaming giant Netflix has decided to purge some of its large collection - and that includes several of its classic science fiction movies. Perhaps the most surprising film to be removed is Spielberg’s extra-terrestrial masterpiece Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but we’ll also be saying goodbye to Event Horizon and The Wrath of Khan.

Peter Capaldi and his magnificent red-lined coat have been spotted in the centre of Cardiff , but they weren’t there to grab a latte and catch a film - far from it. The new Doctor is battling Cybermen and encountering Green Wing 's Michelle Gomez, who's looking a bit like an evil Mary Poppins in these pics. Gomez’s character The Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere will join the more familiar faces of Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver, whose roles as UNIT operatives played an important part in The Day of The Doctor .

We didn’t get to see much of it, aside from a brief trailer, but Hieroglyph , FOX’s ancient Egyptian answer to Game of Thrones , has been cancelled even before it's aired!
