Trail blazing Australian film maker, Enzo Tedeschi joins CJ on Watch This to discuss the DeadHouse Films empire and his latest project Event Zero.

Why won’t audiences embrace new space operas? John Carter of Mars, Jupiter Ascending and now Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets all met tepid to disastrous box office responses in most national markets, all but assuring an unlikely franchise future. Meanwhile, any old Star Trek or Star Wars film will make at least […]
