The latest issue of Cinescape
magazine, just out in the U.S., features an exclusive interview with ENTERPRISE producers Rick Berman
and Brannon Braga
, in which they discuss the troubled state of sci-fi genre in the big and small screens.
"I've heard some people say they're more into fantasy now, Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings," Braga says "I think when The Matrix sequels come out, they're gonna be the biggest movies of all time, and sci-fi will be back again."
"I think, to some degree, there's a lot of fantasy now, whether it be Spider-Man or Lord of the Rings, or even films like Solaris," says Berman "There are a lot of films that are dealing with the supernatural, dealing with fantasy, and it could be that we are in a period where that's taking on a little bit more importance than more traditional science fiction."
About NEMESIS' poor box office, he adds "It hasn't performed as well as we thought, but word seems to be it's doing well in Great Britain. We're keeping our fingers crossed."
