Gone to the Movies!
In this Special issue, Cult Times leaves the warmth of the
TV-watcher's sofa for the delights of the cinema. With major films of
Lost in Space, The Avengers and The X-Files
all queuing up for attention, we review five decades of Cult TV's
cinema crossovers, from Quatermass to Mission:Impossible.
With its début feature film Fight The Future looming,
the international phenomenon has outgrown the small screen. We squeeze
some details from its makers. Plus: a huge fold-out poster of the
film's stars; William B Davis, the Cigarette Smoking Man himself,
speaks to us between drags; and there's a complete Episode Guide to
Camp, kitsch, fun for kids. But enough of the '60s TV series - now
it's a blockbuster movie, with a very different feel. We get behind
the scenes with the producer-director of the film that toppled Titanic
at the US box-office, Stephen Hopkins. Plus a complete at-a-glance
guide to all three TV seasons, with highlights.
Can the new John Steed and Emma Peel live up to the stylish precedent
of their Sixties counterparts? We put the eagerly-awaited
blockbuster's style under the microscope. Plus an episode guide to the
original Avengers' six TV seasons.
There can be only two... Macleods in the next feature film, that is.
With Adrian Paul and Christopher Lambert both set to star in Highlander
IV, we review the Immortals' voyage across screens great and
Don S Davis, one of America's most recognisable
character actors, talks about putting on the uniform of General
Hammond in the series based on the Sci-Fi blockbuster; and his
previous role as Major Briggs in Twin Peaks.
