OK, so it's not on TV. But that's pretty much the only bad thing about Cinematic Titanic, the new project from Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson. Hodgson has reunited the original cast of the show — Trace Beaulieu and J. Elvis Weinstein, the original Crow and Tom Servo, respectively — for a new project making fun of movies.
They haven't announced a ton of specifics about their new "lean, mean movie-riffing machine," but you can sign up for a newsletter to get updates. Right now, the team plans to have its first project available for the holidays. Cinematic Titanic will also premiere a live show in San Francisco in December — but unfortunately, it's not open to the public. (It's for Lucasfilm employees only; anyone want to sneak me in?)
Is this a competitor to Rifftrax, the DVD commentary project started by the second MST3K host, Mike Nelson, and the Servo and Crow of his era? Time will tell. All I know is, if there's double the snarky movie humor in the world, everyone wins!
