Amazon reports that The Chronicles of Riddick – Dark Fury is still having amazing presales. Still two and a half months before its official release date, it has now climbed to the #24 spot in Anime and Manga presales, and is now in the #8,074 spot for DVD sales. Those are excellent numbers! In sharp contrast, the buzz for The Chronicles of Riddick is still very disappointing. A member of the Ain’t It Cool News site posted a review of a sneak peek screening, in which he expressed a rather worrying level of disappointment with the film (the review vanished soon after). Now a rumor has surfaced that a second round of reshoots has been ordered. Too bad it’s unlikely their reshoots will solve the problem we have with the film… but then again, it’s sounding more and more like Rhiana may have dodged a bullet here.
White Collar Blue is currently running on the Showcase channel. We didn’t find out in time for the first broadcast of Rhiana’s episode, but the series is about to start over. Season 1, Episode 1 will be broadcast on April 1. Rhiana’s episode, #10, should run about two weeks later. If you get the Showcase channel, and would be willing to tape for us, please write to us and let us know.
Ardath has added two more galleries of screencaps to the Pitch Black area. More are on their way soon!
We’re betting this is a screencap you’ve never seen before. From a blink-and-you-missed-it moment in the film, it happened when Jack stopped by Paris to give him more wick-holders for his bottles. Rhiana’s face only entered the picture for three frames of film, so you have to be quick on your feet (or an obsessive-compulsive nut!) to catch it.
The first 10 image galleries for Pitch Black are up, brand-new screencaps from the Director’s Cut. As usual, it’s capped with our normal obsessive-compulsive attention to detail, so if Rhiana was in a shot, it’s in our galleries. This is only the first half of the film, though — many more galleries are on their way soon. Click here to check them out!
We are now located on our new webspace. Everything should be functional again. Please let us know if you have any problems or encounter any missing files.
We are in the process of relocating from one webhoster to another, and have closed our messageboard for the duration of the move, which may take 24-48 hours. You will see a message on this page (and will be able to post to the board again) the moment the move is completed. If you use the board to send private messages to friends, be aware that any messages you send while the move is in progress may be lost. Thank you.
While we haven’t received any additional scans of Rhiana articles, Ardath has gone ahead and put up text-only pages for more than a dozen in her files. Now you can read about Rhiana’s early career and follow its progress in print. Hopefully we’ll have even more soon! Click here to access the articles.
Erin Pedz keeps giving us wonderful images. Now the seventh gallery of her Home & Away screencaps is online. Click here to see Rhiana’s “Aimee” try her hand at seduction!
According to Amazon.com, Dark Fury is already a huge success. Based upon its sales so far (and we still have almost three months until it actually comes out!) it’s the #35 “early adopter” item in Anime and Manga sales. Its overall rank on Amazon is currently #14,501. We’d say that’s a strong indication of Rhiana’s commercial viability!
To accommodate all the wonderful pictures and articles we’ve been getting, we now have several new galleries for you to enjoy:
Well, someone needs to smack Ardath’s computer. For the last month or so, it was refusing to download some wonderful email that RhiFan sent her… scans of Rhiana articles! She didn’t even know they were there until today! Artemis came to the rescue, fortunately, so now we have them for you to enjoy:
And if that wasn’t enough, Erin Pedz, one of our New Zealand members, has been screencapping from her videotape of Home and Away… check out the first of her screencaps!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Jon and Erin!
Our filmography page for White Collar Blue is now online, along with six image galleries and two fantastic media files. Fan Artists: check out the image galleries — they are full of amazing face-shots of Rhiana wearing a variety of riveting expressions. Now if we can just get this show to air in America…
The first images from The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury are out, and they have Peter Chung’s trademark style from Aeon Flux, to be sure! Check them out!
