Reverie WonderCon Screening Date

wondercon_logo_765x679As reported by KM UK last week the new NBC sci-fi-ish drama series Reverie will be getting a special preview screening at the upcoming WonderCon convention in Anaheim, California.

In the past couple of days a full schedule of the 3-day event has been released so we can now pin-point when and where that screening will take place.

The whole event kicks of at lunchtime on Friday the 23rd of March 2018.  Sci-fi fans aren’t morning people :-)  Turn up a little late and you’ll miss Reverie as it is scheduled for 3:30pm on that first day.

The screening will take place in the recently opened North section of the Anaheim Convention Center.  First used in September 2017 this annexe adds a significant amount of extra space and is accessible via a covered walkway from the main three halls.  The room in question is called North 200A.

As things stand it does not look like any of the actors or producers will be attending but who know what might change in the next two weeks.

So that is Friday, 23rd March, 3:30pm, room North 200A.  Got it?

The Comic-Con website HERE has all the necessary details.

Reverie @ WonderCon Anaheim 2018

artwork_002Well at least some people are going to get to see Reverie this month.

A preview screening of the show pilot/first episode will be screened for attendees of the WonderCon Anaheim 2018 event.

Running for the long weekend 23rd-25th March the Comic-Con-related convention returns to the northern Californian, Orange County city of Anaheim for 2018.  It is primarily a comic book show but has expanded to include films/TV based on superhero characters.  They’ve obviously stretched things further to include a TV series like Reverie.

The specific timings on the Reverie screening have not yet been revealed but for now more details on the event and tickets are available on the Comic-Con website HERE.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – February 2018


We’re already 1/12th of the way through 2018, more if you consider the number of days. To mark the occasion here’s a quick round-up of updates in the world of the Cold Case cast that aren’t Kathryn.

These regular CCCC-up posts are about looking back at the recent careers of the CC cast.  We often revisit items as more news comes in.  To start with Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC) we are going back over two years.  In October 2015 Tracie filmed a comedy called The California No.  All this time later the film finally received its world première earlier this month at the San Francisco.  Things can move slowly in Hollywood.  Maybe the film has found its time.  A couple of days before that a trailer was released, you can watch it HERE on YouTube.  Beware, it contains ‘adult themes’.  The film stars Noah Segan (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Ursula Mills (Peter Pan), with some slightly better known faces like Jordan Hinson (Eureka) and Breckin Meyer (Road Trip) alongside Tracie in the support cast.

Speaking of films starring Tracie and world premières another of her many projects, a short called Are We Good Parents?, will be getting its debut at the SXSW film festival.  The film is to be shown three times across the whole event which runs from the 9th to the 18th of March.  As it is a short film it will be packaged in a screening with others in the same category on the 10th, 12th and 15th.  Sean Maguire (Once Upon A Time) co-stars in Bola Ogun’s film about two parents dealing with their teen-aged daughter going on her first date with a boy.  A common enough issue for parents around the world.  These two, however, had got the idea that their daughter was gay.  See the SXSW website for details HERE.

Staying with Tracie: she was treading the boards again at the beginning of last week.  In aid of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) the play-on-words comedy titled Villian: DeBlanks came to LA at the Rockwell Theatre.  As you can probably guess from that clever title the murder mystery play is improvised, with the actors having to use suggestions from the audience to shape the story.

To round-off Tracie new this month the Lifetime network show-about-a-show UnREAL returned for its third season on Monday (26th Feb), and the third and final of Love (the Netflix comedy-drama) starring Gillian Jacobs (Community) and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!) will be out on the 9th of March.  The trailer for that is HERE on YouTube.

John Finn (John Stillman in CC) next.  Bent, a movie starring Karl Urban (Dredd), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and Andy Garcia (The Lost City) is due for release next week.  We first mentioned it on this site last May.  The framed-cop out for revenge thriller will receive a limited cinematic outing and be available via VOD services such as iTunes.  Another ‘adult themes’ trailer can be seen on YouTube HERE.

Further, and even greater, evidence of the way things sometimes go in Hollywood is the film Give Til It Hurts.  KM UK first and last mentioned this film waaay back in December 2014.  2014!  At that time release was due in 2015.  Now we have a date of 6th July 2018.  Two brothers try to get back an inheritance they believe is theirs.  Jeremy Ratchford (Nick Vera in CC) has the enigmatic role of ‘Elvis’, likely a small role.

Just in time for Xmas a teaser trailer and some promotional art work was released for Veena Sud‘s (writer/producer on CC) latest project Seven Seconds.  We covered that in our round-up of round-ups to end 2017.  Since then a full trailer was let loose (watch it HERE on YouTube).  The 10 episode drama was made available in its entirety last week on Netflix.  The show centres around the shooting of a black teenager by a white police officer.  Regina King (American Crime) plays the boy’s mother dealing with the aftermath.  The story is based on a Russian show.  Who’d of thunk it?  Russia influencing American media!

Summer Reverie?

artwork_002Now the Winter Olympics (well done to all that competed) is out of the way I was looking forward to an all out Reverie promotional assault from the NBC network.  Just a week to go until a brand new series hits the US airwaves.

It is still early in that 7-day countdown, but the lack anything during the time that so many eyes were on the station’s output for two weeks of snow- and ice-based sports was a little concerning.  No trailer and no press releases giving the official details of the new VR drama starring Sarah Shahi (Person Of Interest), Jessica Lu (Awkward.), Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes), Dennis Haysbert (24), alongside Kathryn.

Spending a little time today looking into what must surely be an oversight by NBC today has brought some disappointing news to light:  we could be looking at a June (and late June at that) première for Reverie.

The early March release looked so set in stone.  Even officially released Reverie artwork (as seen above) included a reference to it, albeit not including the specific date.  They must have meant it at the time.

As Reverie was a ‘mid-season’ show, and therefore set to replace something else, presumably one of the new shows that started last September has been more successful and had its run extended.

It is unlikely now that Reverie will start next week, but we will have to hope we won’t be waiting until the summer.

Kathryn @ CDG Awards – Feb 2005 Update

cdga_03We are deep in the midsts of awards season.

The BAFTAs were last weekend (18th Feb).  The Oscars are next weekend (4th March).  The British Music Awards were a few days ago.  The Grammy awards ceremony happened at the end of January.  The MTV Europe Music Awards are…. OK, they’re ages away (November!).  Don’t worry, the KM UK annual awards will be in a few weeks.

To jump on this bandwagon, and to make up a little for the lack of posts recently, it is time to go back in time to awards ceremonies gone by.  The Costume Designers Guild Awards in 2005 to be precise.

If it was 2013/2014 this post would just be Frozen reference after Frozen reference regarding Kathryn and her fairy princess dress.  But we’re all so sick of Frozen references.  Let it go already!  Sorry :-)  The release of a sequel late next year will no doubt kick it all off again though.  That should kill off the current unicorn craze, unless Frozen 2 includes a unicorn!

The lady sharing the sofa with Kathryn and the boys in the image above is costume designer Jill Taylor.    Presumably Kathryn, Danny and John presented Jill’s award to her, which is why they are pictured together afterwards.  She won for her work on the film The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers.  The biopic about the late actor/comedian starred a host famous names including Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech), Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Emily Watson (Punch-Drunk Love).

The KM UK Gallery has now been updated with 12 new images (and a small update to #10).
