Hollyweird Science
UPDATED: Fri, Mar 25, 08:52AM
For science fiction productions, there is an implied bargain between the screenwriter and the audience: "Suspend your disbelief on one or two fantastic notions, and other parts of the story will be grounded in the believable." The genre is predicated on the expectation of one or two key inaccuracies per story. In recent years, however, both experts and fans have been nitpicking even the fundamental story conceits of films such as Gravity, Interstellar, and The Martian. From the "anything goes" storytelling approach of 1950s and 1960s sci-fi, these panelists will explore whether or not the science accuracy pendulum of audience expectation has swung too far in the other direction. Panelists are Jaime Paglia (showrunner Eureka, Scream), Kevin R. Grazier, Ph.D. (science advisor, Gravity, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), Jessica Cail, Ph.D. (science advisor, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Zootopia), Deric Hughes (Warehouse 13, Beauty and the Beast), Andrea Letamendi, Ph.D. (clinical psychologist The Arkham Sessions, Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics) and Ashley Edward (Thor, X-Men: First Class).
