Marx and Julie talk about what is happening in the world of film, TV and web series. This time, GenreTainment speaks to the authors of Dan O'Bannon's Guide To Screenplay Structure: Inside Tips from the Writer of Alien, Total Recall, and Return of the Living Dead... PLUS a bonus interview with the stars of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome!

Co-authors Matt Lohr and Diane O'Bannon tell us about their book which reveals Dan O'Bannons Dynamic Structure method and was published posthumously. They give us an insider perspective of O'Bannon's writing method that created classics like Alien, Total Recall, and Return of the Living Dead, and explain how this can be applied to your own writing. They also analyze the new Total Recall and Prometheus films.

PLUS, we also speak to Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome stars Luke Pasqualino (William Adama) and Ben Cotton (Coker), who tell us about their experience working on this new Battlestar story that became a huge hit web series and is now premiering on the SyFy Channel.

Hosts (and filmmakers) Marx and Julie give you the latest news on movies, television, web series and comic books; plus, interviews with writers, directors, producers and actors in both independent and not-so-independent creations.
