The reason why no ones heard of quite a lot of the more recent British Films or the stars that are in them is because they hardly every get into the movie theatres and normally go straight to DVD, as a lot of movie theatres in some areas of the country can not afford to take risks on films that have not got any 'star' the general public have heard of in general they would sooner take the latest Disney, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, etc films instead.

Some of the current guests are from a time when British Films did actually make it into the movie theatres and made money.

Also a lot of the guests are NOT people who where in masks, on Doctor Who, Star Wars, etc - they where the main stars or co-stars of the various TV and Movies they where in over the years.

ANYWAY..... a lot of the actors that where in Star Wars where British! - Alec Gunniess for one ;)

I don't recall ever seing Patrick Stewart in Star Wars, unless he was in one of the masks everyone keeps on about ;) ...... he was in Star Trek: The Next Generation not Star Wars!

Everyone of those movies I mentioned played the multiplexes. Just because they may be outside the mainstram of Dr Who, Star Trek, Merlin, James Bond, Stars Wars, Harry Potter or TV Gold doesn't mean they should be ignored. I'm sure many more people the world over would know Shaun of The Dead, Solomon Kane and The Descent over Captain Cronus and Village of the Damned.
Anyway, no issues over the guests already annnounced. Just hoping for even more variety.

MEMORABILIA always has a wide reaching variety of guests from niche cult such as captain kronos through to Dr Who and more.

We are never going to please everyone.

I've previously mentioned the amazing Lee Arenberg on here as a potential guest - especially as he was meant to attend in March, wasn't able to due to filming, but absolutely expressed a desire to attend in November.

If anyone has seen the first episode of the exciting new US (ABC) series "Once Upon a Time" - I am certain you will agree that any of the cast of this show (Lee Arenberg, Robert Carlyle amongst others!) would be fantastic guests at an event like this! Should snap up the cast now while the show is in its infancy - give it 12 months and they will be much harder to get as I suspect the show is going to be huuuuge! :D

Not every town has or is close to Muliplexes.... hence a lot of films as far as the local movie theatres are concerned are DVD releases only as they can not make enough money out of certain films hence the reason they don't show them.

i.e. my local movie theatre only has 5 screens but so it can not show ever film that is released, so it tends not to show films which it thinks it can not make money out of.

Anyway did not Solomon Kane flop big time ? - cost to make: $45,000,000 - gross: $19,439,975

Well current Saturday Team Time guests would be people from Master Chief, Come Dancing, Family Fortunes (at a push as this would be going out of your tea time time frame) - are you sure you meant those - lol


Well I guess could always have Simon Pegg (As he's been in Doctor Who and Star Trek)

homocide wrote:whome what wrestling do they show then because i could have sworn wwe have purchased the tape libraries of every major wrestling company on the face of the planet. and the OLD wrestlers attract upwards of 2000 people to simple book signings at whsmith etc. then again im sure chris jericho would attract a greater amount of interest singing the greatest hits of s club 7 on a street corner than the current line up of STARS to this event


There was a time before WWE was shown in the UK - back when it was still breaking various trademarks by been called WWF. Indeed it still was WWF when it first came to the UK. There was a show on ITV that used to be shown for many years it was called World of Sport. These repeats of old wrestling are within a section still called 'World of Sport' and it is still owned by the UK! and yes back in the day it had huge audiences on ITV with the likes of Giant Haystacks, Big Daddy, etc who became big household names in the UK. The USA do NOT own every major Wrestling footage wise, just they might currently have the best wrestling script writers.

Anyway: the quality of the 'current' guest as always is in the eye of the beholder some people would come just to see their childhood 'heros' / 'friends' from programmes from yesteryear. Some people might go who on earth is Chris Jericho other people would queue for ages to see him it all depends on your point of view.

Correct, Solomon Kane didn't fare well at THE CINEMA. Thta means nobody would be interested in meeting the terrible lead actor (James Purefoy, Iron Clad, Rome, Resident Evil, Camelot) or dreadful director (Michael J Bassett, currently making Silent Hill: Revelation 3D with Sean Bean, Malcolm MacDowell & Carrie Ann Moss).

Saturday teatime - Doctor Who, Merlin, Robin Hood, Primeval etc (perhaps Mrs Whome has your tea on the table for 5 pm sharp)?

Mmeorabilia would never get Simon Pegg now he'd cost way too much.

Just for reference technically speaking Saturday Teatime - is 4pm to 5pm in the UK.

Also I think you will find that Merlin is on around 8.15pm these days way past Teatime which is up against The X-Factor.... (The latest TV version of Robin Hood finished long ago)

At Teatime in the UK - it's SPORT normally on BBC 1 then Master Chief ;) (Oh unless you are secretly wanting the Master Chief team to turn up!)

Anyway has not Simon Pegg been to events like these before ?

Some of the cast from BBC's Mid-Evening line up hit Merlin as it is still proving to be very popular on BBC One even up against The X-Factor!

Don't Sky TV own exclusive rights to WWE in this country at the moment, as they charge extra for some of the bigger 'scripted matches'. Plus do you really think that a certain Mr Murdock would really want some rivial channel on his system in the UK, not going to happen really is it.

A lot of the guests are actually brought in by external companies, including charitys, additional to ones that the event itself brings. Maybe one of the bigger charitys could attract a 'big' Sports star to donate some of their time for the event.
