I loved that first book so very much!

Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama involves a group of human space explorers flying toward Rama, a large celestial object hurtling toward Earth that humans think is an alien spacecraft, marking the world’s first contact with alien intelligence.

Thanks to Ben Riggs for pointing it out.

That has potential.

Seems like a good fit. I hope he can capture the sheer scale of the vessel - the novel's descriptions are so evocative, it's the only book that's given me vertigo.

In the "first alien contact" genre I'd really like to see this but would even more like to see Alan Dean Foster's "Nor Crystal Tears", if only to see if they would use the song of the same name by '80s Canadian group Strange Advance in the soundtrack.

How about "Out of the Silent Planet"?

This news thrills me.

Along with Herbert's Dune and Asimov's Foundation, this is one of those seminal works of science fiction that I was lucky enough to come across and read as a teenager, and which left quite an impression on me. Villeneuve's Arrival and Dune make me very, very optimistic about Rama.

And here I am, still waiting for the sequel to "John Carter of Mars," which is clearly the best science fiction film of all times. The long-overdue sequel was to be called "John Carter of Venus."

Other science fiction/fantasy franchise installments we haven't gotten include the following:
The 14th Warrior
The Sixth Element
Nosfera-Three (been waiting for this one since 1922)

Huh? What do sequels have to do with anything?

When Malcolm X came out, I recall joking it was so good I wanted to go back and see the first 9 films.

Also, to really mess with people, tell them that 28 Days Later (the zombie apocalypse movie) is the sequel to 28 Days (the Sandra Bullock rehab film). :devilish:

Whoa! Careful. I'm writing this from WITHIN that turd.... ship. And I don't think the crew would take kindly to your foul descriptive text.
