Since 2006, we’ve had enough horror remakes and sequels to last a century. But we’ve actually had some terrifying new entries into the genre, too. As we await the likes of Lights Out and The Woods—both rumored to be nightmare-inducing—later this year, there’s no better time than to look back at what’s scared us the…
Lionsgate’s first Power Rangers movie is still a year away, but the studio is putting a lot of faith into the franchise performing well for it going forward. Are you ready to be excited for not just one Power Rangers movie, but seven of them?
The International Space Station was supposed to get its very first attachable, expandable space house this morning. Instead, the structure refused to inflate—and nobody’s quite sure what went wrong.
The Nerdwriter has a really interesting breakdown on intertextuality in movies, or the idea of how something seen in a movie is shaped by something previously seen in something else. A call back, of sorts. A cultural or genre nod, even. But what’s really interesting is how intertextuality is now used in a world of…
We all know about the four fundamental forces of nature: gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong forces between atoms. But could there be a fifth force still waiting to be discovered? A new experiment performed in Hungary suggests this may very well be the case.
It’s supposed to matter when Superman dies. This time, it totally doesn’t.
Fox released this image from the filming of Alien: Covenant, which shows Katherine Waterston in character as “Daniels” for the first time (that’s her on the right). Also, there are wires ripped from the ceiling and lighting that could indicate a fire in the background, which, if she’s in a spaceship, is rarely a good…
Ever wonder how there could only be about 18 Gryffindors in Harry’s Hogwarts class and that J.K. Rowling has said there were 1,000 students at the school? Well, a fan theory has an answer... a depressing, depressing answer.
At a certain point during Alice Through the Looking Glass, I thought to myself, “Wait, haven’t I seen this before?” And not in the cute “This movie is about time travel and we revisit scenes” kind of way. The movie got so monotonous, I literally felt like I’d seen a scene before in the same film.

Or, as it was known then, Revenge of the Jedi. Either way, according to the Academy Film Archive, this brief teaser trailer released in the U.K. in 1982 was probably the first ever look at the third chapter in the Star Wars saga, and now you can see it for yourself.
Chris Evans wants in on Spider-Man: Homecoming. A Flash star hints that the season finale has a big connection to the future of Legends of Tomorrow. EA wants to make a Mirror’s Edge TV show happen. Plus, new footage from X-Men: Apocalypse, and new pictures from Game of Thrones. To me, my Spoilers!
Spoiler alert, obviously. Actually, are there really spoiler alerts when it comes to movies by Quentin Tarantino? Everybody knows that everybody dies. Room 237 made this really fun video of characters from all of QT’s films, like Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds, showing their first and last appearances.
The same soap bubbles that fascinated you as a toddler can be just as engaging when you’re all grown up. They just need to be super-sized, filmed in glorious 4K, and then manipulated in post-production with a mirror effect that turns them into undulating alien-like blobs. Cue up some Led Zeppelin and let your mind go…
For the past four years, Tommy Edison has vlogged his experience as a blind man in a world full of people who can see. Some of these videos are revelatory, like when he explains how the blind use money, or what his dreams are like. Today he decided to find out what riding a rollercoaster feels like.
If you grew up with an older brother or sister and an old school video game console, Zachary Antell’s short animation Player Two should hit you right in the nostalgic feeling bank. Some people call that a heart, and maybe make you want to pick up the phone to call him or her (or let’s be honest, shoot a text to them).
It is a truth universally acknowledged that pretty much everyone hates spoilers. The internet was furious with former Detroit Tigers player Michael Sams for accidentally tweeting a major spoiler for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And this week we learned about a vengeful ex-girlfriend who deliberately spoils Game of…
Here are two black mambas—the world’s most dangerous snake—fighting each other for the right to mate with a female black mamba. They’re engaging in a form of plaiting combat where they twist their bodies in a braid in hopes of making the other black mamba submit. It’s basically a never ending shove match that goes on…
