VIEWS FROM THE ACORN UNIVERSE, 4/28/08

Welcome back to the Acorn Universe!

And speaking of welcome back, Moonlight and Supernatural both return from a strike-induced hiatus this week, with new thrills.

Two trailers for summer scifi follow: Stargate Continuum and Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D.

Though demonic superhero Hellboy won’t return to the screen for Hellboy II: The Golden Army until July 11, the film’s director is already weighing in on a third installment to the comic book adaptation. Del Toro: Hellboy III Would Be It. With plans for the Justice League movie and the X-Men spin-offs, it shouldn’t surprise comic fans to learn of a possible Avengers movie: Hulk Sets Up Avengers.

Socket has received a lot of gay media coverage lately. It’s a fun scifi/horror flick with gay characters.

Turning to pages, Blind Fall, the new thriller by Christopher Rice, doesn’t include supernatural elements, but it explores tensions between the military and the gay community in San Diego. It’s actually the first novel I’ve read by Christopher Rice, and definitely worth putting on your to-read list.
