Tomorrow, the Legend of Hell’s Gate will be released on DVD. Just before this release Tanner Beard sat down with Star-Telegram and talked about the movie. He has some nice details about the production. Here is an excerpt:
[...]“When I met Summer Glau for the first time, she asked, ‘Where are you thinking about filming?’ I said our first couple of days would be in this little town near San Antonio she’d probably never heard of, a place called Boerne,” Beard says. “She looked at me and said, ‘You’re never going to believe this, but I’m from Boerne.’ And she ultimately showed me her old driver’s license to prove it. I guess it was fate.”
Truth be told, the real appeal for almost everyone involved, cast and crew alike, was the opportunity to make a Western.
“Summer told me, ‘I’ve always wanted to be in a Western.’[...]
There is a video from the Dallas Comic Con online that has a some great scenes from Summer’s autograph session, where she poses with probably the youngest fan. The scene starts at 2:24 and at the end you can see that Laura Vandervoort is visiting Summer at her booth.
Some screencaps from the video are also in the gallery.
A couple days before the DVD release of The Legend of Hell’s Gate, there is a nice interview with director, writer and co-star Tanner Beard on Henry’s Western Blog.
[...]Summer Glau is just so incredibly professional. She actually flew from Hawaii, from a movie set, went home for an hour, then drove back to L.A.X., got on a plane to San Antonio, had to drive all the way to set, straight into hair and make-up. She came out and caught us for the tail end of the day, when the Moon family is outside of their house, and we had just enough light that it looked Terrence Malik-y out there. I said, we’re going to go ahead and roll this one. She just dove right in, and really had no idea what the scene was.[...]

SyFy has released a first trailer for the upcoming season of Alphas. So far Summer is not in the trailer, but as SyFy starts to promote the show, we will hopefully see her in the upcoming ones. Alphas will have its season premiere on July 23 at 10/9c on SyFy.
Is everyone excited to see the new season of Alphas ?
The website alphastv.net has collected some information about Summer’s (possible) episode of Alphas called ‘Alphaville’.
As the title says, the team finds a community of alphas in this episode. They filmed it in the woods somewhere. No cell phone signals for Gary. Guest characters include Skylar Adams (Summer Glau) and her daughter, Alphaville founder Claude, an alpha called Benji who has the same ability as Rachel, Gower, another alpha who likes to play with electricity, and Bip & Tricia, Mr. Scipio’s new friends.
Alphas is coming up on DVDs real soon. The Complete First Season will be released on July 17, 2012. It will cost $44.98 and you can pre-order it now at Amazon.
Extras will consist of an Extended Version of the Pilot, Deleted Scenes, the Alphas at Comic-Con 2011 featurette, and an Alphas Fan Q&A as well.
Brought together to form one extraordinary team of “Alphas” – people whose unique brain anomalies imbue them with superhuman mental and physical abilities – five seemingly ordinary citizens must take the law into their own hands while working within the government to investigate a new brand of baffling crime. An action-packed thriller starring an electrifying cast led by Primetime Emmy Awardr winner and Academy Awardr nominee David Strathairn (The Bourne Ultimatum) and guest starring sci-fi icons Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation), discover a new breed of superheroes in Alphas.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Universal, they’re releasing a special edition of Serenity, an exclusive steelbook edition (Blu-Ray).
It’s available for pre-oder at Play.com and it looks… shiny!
Can’t stop the signal…
Beloved television cult director Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel) makes a spectacular first foray onto the big screen with Serenity, the cinematic adaptation of his wildly popular but short-lived sci-fi series, Firefly. A mix of space western, comedy, and drama, Serenity follows captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his ragtag crew as they trade their way around the edges of civilized society. Of particular interest are two passengers they take on, Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher and Summer Glau), a brother and his telepathic sister on the run from the corrupt governing Alliance. As notorious former members of the anti-Alliance opposition, Mal and his crew make it difficult for Simon and River to stay hidden. Everything goes completely awry when a government assassin is sent to retrieve River. As Mal is forced to choose between his close-knit crew and the brother and sister newcomers, it becomes apparent that River harbors both a dangerous secret and astounding fighting powers, and Mal decides that discovering the truth about what she knows might just be worth his time.
Many of the film’s action sequences revolve around Summer Glau’s martial arts skills in her portrayal of River. Glau prepared for her role with Hong Kong stuntwoman Ming Lu, as well as stunt coordinators Chad Stahelski and Hiro Koda, and as a result performed nearly all the stuntwork herself. In addition to the stellar stunts, realistic graphics, and an often haunting score, the film’s actors display a rare chemistry that brings viewers both into their lives and into a possible version of humanity’s future.
