  • This will be my first reboot of a story that I loved previously, so I don't have any negative baggage to bring with me to the reboot, but listening to everyone else I'm not sure if I should be scared or not, or just continue to trust in JMS.

    I'm leaning towards trust because even when Joe does things that other tv producers do, he does them better. He is 10,000 leagues above JJ Abrams or Scott Rosenberg, or Joss Whedon or any of those other big names. Whatever any of them would do, Joe may also do, but he'll do it better.

      No doubt JMS will do his B5 Film justice. He's been very clear on his standards for making it and unwilling to comprimise to the point of going it alone.

      I look forward to the prerelease buzz when the trailers appear and the press are doing interviews. It will be so awesome to see the Babylon 5 movie in Variety, Entertainment Weekly and The Hollywood Reporter.

        And the movie trailer!!!! I'd buy a ticket for anything just to see a B5 movie trailer on the big screen.

        Our movie won't come out the same year as star wars will it?

          I don't know why but I got goose bumps when I read the word "trailer." I think it has something to do with the same feeling I got when I saw The Legend of The Rangers Trailer on the big screen the first time.

          That is scheduled for release in 2015, next year. WOW! where does the time go?!

            Talking of Legend of the Rangers, I'd still like to see the meeting of the Liandra and Excalibur that JMS had planned, and plenty of Rangers action. Heck, anything to do with my beloved Valen...!

              But if episode 8 comes out in 2017, they could still come out at the same time possibly. That would be wicked awesome to see a B5 trailer before star wars!!!!

              Was Legend of the rangers in the cinema? I never knew that.

              • I was thinking JMS said he would write the script in 2015 and the movie would come out in 2016.
                That's when the next J.J. verse Star Trek is due out

                    There were trailers for it in the theaters. The trailer was great and it ended with when the premier would be on TNT. I don't even remember the movies it played before, but I am sure someone around here does. And I hope JMS doesn't get a release date anywhere near a Star Wars, or Star Trek for that matter, release date. Would a month before or two months after one of those be better? I think at least a month before, but I have no data to base that on other than my gutt.

                    • As you may or may not know, B5 is extremely popular and well-known in Russia, much more so than, say, TNG or TOS (the latter being particularly obscure).

                      So in order to spread the word, I just launched a topic on the main Russian game developer forum (pretty much THE frontier for creative thinking software-developing population):
                      https://translate.google.com/transla...383&edit-text=

                      I'm actually amazed at the correctness of translation.

                        Cool to see. Although their forum looks about as sparsely populated as this one! I do sometimes wonder where B5 fandom is hiding!

                              Facebook, I think. I was sad a week or so ago when I felt it necessary to leave a really large B5 FB page with over 12K members. The single admin had suddenly found it desirable to use the page as a platform for views and vocabulary (no, not profanity, I'm all in favor of that when called for - things like 'feminazi') I simply couldn't abide. Pity, too, because I enjoyed most of it and liked to think that I helped keep some of the misinformation about B5 to a minimum.

                                And why haven't these 12K members LIKED FREEBABYLON5?
                                (I am not directing that toward you, Jan. I am directed it toward 12k people who claim to be fans of Babylon 5.)

                                And how can anyone follow anything on Facebook? I get stuff for things I've LIKED constantly. I mean Claudia Christian must have a staff of people who just post things on Facebook for her. There are so many posts from people and things that I've LIKED that I would have to be on there 24/7 to keep up. Yes I could get rid of some of the ones I don't pay much attention to, but they're family. In all seriousness I don't want to stop following the ones I am following, but at the same time it is impossible to keep track of everything. That is why I love Forums - topic specific filtering. (And yes I know I could follow just what is happening on that 12K fan Facebook page, but why would I want to. They haven't even LIKED #FREEBABYLON5 yet. That is so last year. )
