With every update I have given on Zoom I have been sure to point out the film's similarities, or should I say relationship, to Galaxy Quest. I still find the Tim Allen comedy to be one of the most underrated spoofs of all time and laugh my ass off every time I watch the film on DVD; we need to get Tim Allen and Sam Rockwell together again.

It turns out the Tim Allen recently read one of our first updates on the film, which did feature a Galaxy Quest comparison, and has sent us a little response.

Zoom with Tim Allen

Note from Tim Allen:

Good vibe for seeing the similarity to Galaxy Quest. The original creative was to do the same reality check we did with space heroes but in the world of super-heroes. I was happy as a clam making and being apart of Galaxy Quest and I was excited that Zoom would offer the same experience. We hit at almost 85% of what I wanted with the cool details that make it work for me. So the outcome (of Zoom) is in the game. I am a real Sci-Fi buff and the studio seemed a bit confused at some of the foundational elements I wrote in as critical to good Sci-Fi. It is a no fault situation, just preferences. It is their money.

So what you see promoted is aimed a bit young...almost like was done with the Galaxy Quest promotional. But there is lots to laugh at and look at. I just loved to be the smart ass in this. It’s a good ride. The cast added so much. Courteney Cox and I had a great time working together. And I got to fly a spaceship again! What’s the down side?

Zoom opens August 11 Sincerely, TA

Like what you hear? Good to hear the guy so confident; remember that confidence instills more confidence.
