    Kind of a funny entry I found in the production diaries for Hellboy: the animated series. http://hellboyanimated.typepad.com/hellboy_animated/2006/12/early_christmas.html

    Still waiting for the weekly version of the Hypaspace program (witht the extended Outlander segment) to go online but in the meantime They've got a roughly 4 minute interview up with John Hurt in the Dec 8 Hypaspace podcast. Have a listen as he describes to some legnth the movie's setting and plot. Some very interesting stuff here:

    http://outlander.solsector.net/ Is now officially online. Thanks to the CIC for hosting services.

    For all of you that have been following this thread, most of the info here is included in an easier to grasp fashion. Updates will now be made there but this thread is going to stay available for discussing aspects of the film and it's production.

    Don't forget to check out the nearly 8 minute making-of feature.

    Hey everyone.

    Just wanted to say nice site ... and great info on the film ... its nice to see some of the stuff from the otherside of the 'behind the scenes' of the movie.

    I do have a quick question, and I hope no one takes offence to it. I need to contact someone who is running the site that links to these forums. The site is ...

    http://outlander.solsector.net

    The reason I am asking is due to I am one of the Animators discussed on the main page info ... and would like to clarify a small issue.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    -Kev

    No Credit

    I see lots of the beautiful work done by the Construction and Scenic Depts. With barely a name mentioned in the Credits! This movie is all about the location sets! Some of the best done recently. Cheers to all those that toiled long and hard to produce such impressive Sets.

    Credits! What Credits?!

    I see a lot of pictures of the beautiful Set and Scenic work done for this film.

    The Credits certainly don't reflect any acknowledgment of those responsible for their creation!

    This movie is all about the magnificent Sets that were produced by numerous talented artists on the East Coast of Canada, (Nova Scotia & Newfoundland).

    Disappointing that those responsible for establishing the credits didn't see fit to include the names of those that gave this movie their all and produced some of the most spectacular Set Construction and Scenic work bar none!

    Cheers to all those unacknowledged souls that made this movie possible.

    Just watched this tonight. Really enjoyed it. Checked out the wiki entry to find it got pretty much panned and bombed.

    Makes no sense to me at all. Especially when the Sex in the City movie and the recent Harry Potter did so well.

    The wikipedia article for this is really stupid, and it's organization would lead you to believe things that arent really the case. Plus it was hardly panned by all critics. It got one really mediocre to bad review from variety but many genre reviewers rated it quite well (including aint it cool). And as far as bombing, the weinsteins never gave it a chance to bomb. But it's been doing quite well on home video so far, including debuting in the top spot in the UK last week... (#2 depending on which charts you are looking at). The weinsteins burried it's theatrical release and didn't promote it *at all.* So simply reading some wikipedia entry doesn't give you the whole story.
