I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday. As usual, after the rush of the season, things calm down and Elijah is no exception. He had a little R&R time in Europe before the next big thing.
:: That would be the Sundance Film Festival starting January 18th and The Nerdist has listed SpectreVision's Mandy among the 13 most anticipated films this year.
:: In case you're wondering, the inset photo is from Sundance in 2009.
:: Dirk Gently is now streaming on Netflix all over the globe... except in the US, but the response is as expected. Folks love the second season and the petition to renew it for at least one more season is still growing. At the time of this update, over 45,000 signatures have been obtained. Keep up the great work because fans can't loose this show. Remember, a permanent link to the petition is in our Dirk Gently section.
:: Another cool thing coming out of the fandom of Dirk Gently is this cool whodunit game from the artistry of Allen Helbig. Here are some places where can purchase the game.
:: In less than two weeks, someone's having a birthday! If you wish to send greetings to Elijah for his 37th birthday on January 28th, you can email me your poems, artworks, videos or whatever you like. Please read the guidelines if you want to participate.
That's all... for now.

The last episode in season 2 of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency was bittersweet. It was a wonderful conclusion to a fantastical season and a nice set up for next year, but then we were hit two days later with news that BBC America was not going to continue with the show which hit fans like a ton of bricks.|
Many were heartbroken and immediately an online petition to bring the show back was started and the response has been incredible. Netflix is one of those being implored to be the savior of Dirk, so when time comes for the second season to show there, 180 + countries has an important but fun job. If you live outside of the U.S., please tune into Netflix beginning Friday, January 5th and tell others to watch Dirk Gently!
If you're in the states, you can still watch on AMC, Amazon and iTunes. After signing the petition himself, Executive Producer Arvind David wrote this to supporters. Our Dirk Gently section has a link that goes to the petition and will stay there until things are right in the DGHDA world.
:: The last episode, Nice Jacket, was so brilliant and packed with many goodies, that it took two pages of screencaps to snag them all! More images have been added to the promotional, behind the scenes and artwork sections as well as some of the most memorable quotes from Dirk Gently.
:: SpectreVision had a unique interview with The Core, a talk show from horror site, Shudder, to discuss their process of film making. If you're signed up with Shudder, you can watch it here, or go for the free week trail to see some horrific fun. There's also an interview at UpRoxx as well.
:: One of SpectreVision's films, Bitch is now available for pre-order from Amazon which I'm going to check out this last day of 2017.
:: Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19th, Company X/SpectreVision's latest film, Mandy, is on the list of the most anticipated movies of 2018 according to Esquire.
:: And on another list, I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore makes it on the most underrated genre films of 2017. Though, not really underrated for this Sundance prize winner, just under-seen.
:: Since more images have been posted from the Prada campaign, there's a page of photos from behind the camera.
:: Another year is in the books, and Elijah has entertained us with many things. Thanks for helping to make this year an incredible one Amanda, Ambree, Jaramajo, Romina, Teresa, the entire cast and crew of Dirk Gently, especially Mike Perrin and Bentley, Zoe Neary and Arvind David. I can't forget Dirk Wood at IDW Publishing and to all the creative and talented artists for producing wonderful artworks from this season.

:: Being a huge fan of the franchise, Elijah was on hand at the star-studded, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, world premiere in LA last weekend. Here are a few photos.   
:: He was also co-moderator with Daniel Noah for a Q&A with director, Guillermo del Toro, for his new film, The Shape of Water, that took place at the ArcLight Cinema in LA last week.    
:: It doesn't seem like 2017 is nearly over. I was stalled out for a few weeks, but I'm finally in the beginning stages of putting together my Elijah year-end video and with any luck, I'll have it ready for the last update of the year.
That's all... for now.

Up until a couple of days ago, (other than Dirk Gently), it has been a pretty uneventful period since the last update. But lo and behold, Elijah has teamed back up with Autumn de Wilde to promote a new line of Prada handbags. Check out the short film series, The Postman Dreams, Troublemaker and The Bogey. You can read more about the campaign here and from her Instagram, an on set photo of Autumn taken by Elijah.
:: It was also announced that Company X's latest film Mandy will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
:: I'm still putting together screencaps and gathering fabulous artworks, behind the scenes and promotional shots for Dirk Gently. Just three episodes left to find out how this remarkable season winds up, so stay up on or catch up on them in the Dirk Gently section.
:: Lastly, I came upon a video I've never seen before. It's from Elijah's trip to Chile in 2010 where he visited a shelter for dogs, Tu Amigo Fiel. It's touching and quite sweet. Being a dog lover, my feels were in overload!
That all... for now.

Last weekend, Elijah went from one coast to another in a day. First he attended the Napa Valley Film Festival along with the SpectreVision partners where it looks like not only wine was there. Here's a little "taste" of what went on. CLICK.
:: The very next day Elijah was at the Rhode Island Comic Con with LOTR co-stars Andy Sekis and Sean Astin. Here are a couple of snippets from the Q&A.   and a funny little moment.
:: Speaking of Lord of the Rings, Amazon will produce a series that was first rumored then confirmed by CNN Entertainment.
:: But there is still Dirk Gently that just gets better with each episode. There are screencaps from Two Broken Fingers, The House within a House and Shapes and Colors. There's so many fun and interesting behind the scenes pics, that two pages are now needed. Check out the entire Dirk Gently section for new additions.
:: I came across a video with Elijah and Samuel Barnett during Dirk Gently promotions. Check them out the 3:45 mark in the video from People TV.
:: How about one last video? This time Elijah explains the rules of the game The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31.
That's all... for now.
