October sees the UK debut of Stargate SG-1 spin-off Stargate: Atlantis on Sky One. Although many of the faces of the new show have not been seen in the Stargate universe before, one at least should be familiar. Actor David Hewlett will be reprising his role of Dr. Rodney McKay, a part he first played in the season five Stargate SG-1 episode "48 Hours".

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR
Two of the movie worlds' most famous extraterrestrial franchises have merged to create Alien Vs. Predator (a prequel to the Alien films and loose sequel to the Predator movies). Writer/director Paul W. S. Anderson explains which elements he took from the two films and why. Plus, actors Sanaa Lathan and Lance Henriksen tell of their involvement in the project.
The American adaptation of the Japanese horror film Yu-On is marked out from other adaptations of foreign films, as the original director, Takashi Shimizu, also helms the remake. We hear from stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jason Behr and director Shimizu about the film, the challenges they faced and rewards they reaped.
David S. Goyer, the writer of Batman prequel, Batman Begins, takes dreamwatch behind the scenes of the new film. Starring Christian Bale as the caped crusader, and directed by Christopher Nolan, Goyer explains how he has attempted to create an original take on the legend. There are elements of the film that have never been previously addressed, not even in the comic books, and the writer discusses how he and Nolan have strived to ground the film in reality.
JOLENE BLALOCK -- T'POL
Star Trek: Enterprise's resident Vulcan talks to dreamwatch about the show and how she feels her character has developed. Although actress Jolene Blalock admits to being a little unsure of the experiences T'Pol encountered last season and the way in which she reacted to them, she tells dreamwatch how impressed she is with season four and hints at what we can look forward to!
STAR WARS dreamwatch is joined by Gary Kurtz, producer of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back to hear his memories of the creation of the iconic films.

Re: Dreamwatch Magazine # 122 - RDA & SGA
Jolene, in the commercials for ST:E does not look pleased at all. She has good reason too, because Vulcans aren't supposed to have emotions, and her character is being overwhemled with them, which isn't sticking to the original Vulcan logic.
Batman Begins section, is sorta interesting. The movie looks awesome. I can't wait to see it.
BSG (N), that too looks awesome, and that too, I can't wait to see come January.
Thanks for the summaries Morjana.
