SyFy’s Nightflyers Series Premiere

Photo Credit: B Henderson Picture Stock

SyFy aired the premiere for the new series “Nightflyers” last night. The series is based on a 1980 novella by George R.R. Martin. It is one of several stories set in what can be described as “The Thousand Worlds” universe. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the series show runner Jeff Buhler stated that the aim of Nightflyers is to “barrel headlong into those worlds, beginning with what he hopes is the first of multiple seasons inspired by Martin’s dangerous storytelling sensibilities”.

The danger is front and center within the first minutes of the blood-filled season premiere, which bowed Sunday on Syfy. The violent conclusion will be known in short order, too, as Syfy plans to air all 10 episodes of Nightflyers‘ first season by Dec. 13, a release strategy that hybridizes weekly viewing with the streaming service era’s bingeing habits. In the interview ahead, Buhler explains that strategy, outlines the bold science-fiction storytelling he hopes to explore, the ways in which Martin inspired the adaptation and much more. source: THR

For trailers, and episode descriptions please visit the SyFy link below to the page for the new series. Can’t wait for next week’s episode! The cast was very happy to be at Comic Con 2018 (photo above from the press room).

Alexander Skarsgard Appearance on The Hoda Show on Sirius Xm

Alexander Skarsgard appears on The Hoda Show on Sirius Xm. He sat down with Hoda Kotb to discuss his role in The Little Drummer girl. He also discussed his upcoming role in the Godzilla vs. King Kong film. He dispelled rumors that he was playing the leader of a military unit:

“That’s not true. That’s a lie,” Alex said. “He’s not an alpha, bad-ass hero, which I thought was quite interesting. He is thrown into this very dangerous situation and is definitely not equipped for it and that makes it a bit more interesting in my opinion than had he been a bad-ass dude. He’s just a tiny, tiny human trying to survive between these two behemoths.”

awesome photos of his interview can be found on the Alexander Skarsgard Library tumblr
