The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the nominees for this year’s Saturn Awards. Coming on the tail-end of the Oscars, they almost hold two fingers up to the Academy, nominating the sort of film that wouldn’t usually get a whiff of recognition, all leading to a rather interesting set of nominees. If the presence of Limitless, Thor and The Lincoln Lawyer doesn’t get you interested then there’s something wrong with you and check out that Best Supporting Actor category! However, I must warn you that Hugo has a vast dollop of nominations, but it’s alright when there’s so much love for Tintin and a nom for Attack The Block. Check out the full set of nominees below: Continue reading

DIRECTOR: Shawn Levy.
CAST: Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, Hope Davis, Olga Fonda, Karl Yune, James Rebhorn.
SYNOPSIS: Tired of watching humans fight, impressive robots are built to battle each other in the ring and shipped all over the world for competitions. Some, however, fight in the dirt and their owners have to drive day after day to find the nearest fight. Charlie Kenton (Jackman) is struggling to find enough money from these small fights to keep the debt collectors away. But when his 11-year-old son Max (Goyo) turns up after unexpected circumstances, the two of them find Atom, a robot who may give them a chance to both rebuild their relationship and reform the sport.
