Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of October 9

Once again, I’m way late with this.  Can’t blame anyone but myself.

There’s a film called Geostorm premiering in the U.S. this Friday, October 20.  It seems to be in the same genre space as Into the Storm, The Core and other disaster films that aren’t terribly concerned about scientific plausibility.  In other words, about 90 minutes of cornball action-adventure.  The film involves apparent sabotage of a global satellite network intended to control the weather.  Anyway, the star of the film, Gerard Butler, has been out promoting the film, and appeared on Late Night and Live with Kelly and Ryan this past Thursday (October 12).

Halt and Catch Fire, the AMC network’s television program focusing on a few people developing computer technology in the 1980s and 1990s, recently concluded.  Lead Mackenzie Davis was on Late Night on October 9th to discuss the show.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is a recently released film focused on the psychologist William Marston, who helped develop the polygraph with his wife Elizabeth.  The film is more focused on the relationship both Marstons had with one of their students and how all of this influenced Marston to create the Wonder Woman comic book.  Luke Evans plays William Marston, and he visited with Stephen Colbert on the October 10th Late Show.  Rebecca Hall plays Elizabeth Marston and she was on The Talk October 13th.

Tonight (Sunday) another episode of Star Talk premiered, featuring primatologist Jane Goodall.  I really intend to have more on Star Talk‘s fourth season later this week (but I said something similar last week that didn’t pan out).
