Cable giant HBO’s very embarrassing 2017 has continued to get more embarrassing. On Wednesday night, hacker squad OurMine Security Group compromised Game of Thrones’ Twitter account, posting a message to its 6 million plus followers saying “Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security.”
Amazon’s had a few short-lived restockings of the gray Nintendo Switch, but if you were holding out for the Neon model, it’s in stock for Prime members right now, only the third time we’ve seen it there since initial preorders. Needless to say, we don’t expect it to last long at all.
David F. Sandberg talks Shazam. We’ve got another mysterious tease from the set of the Han Solo movie. Paul Bettany discusses the Vision’s future. Plus, even more set pictures from Aquaman, and another new look at Jessica Jones’ big returning character. Spoilers now!
You probably don’t even remember that the 2010 movie Skyline exists. It’s one of those scifi movies that came and went very quickly because it was just so, so bad. Today, though, we have a trailer for Beyond Skyline, which seems like a spin-off sequel, and the trailer is surprisingly awesome.
It’s a great time to be a fan of scifi-fantasy author N.K. Jemisin. Her latest book, The Stone Sky, just came out yesterday. The previous novel in her Broken Earth series, The Obelisk Gate, won a Hugo last week. And the first book in the series, The Fifth Season (which won the 2016 Hugo), is being adapted into a TV…
If active galactic nuclei don’t make you say “holy shit,” what will? Lots of galaxies contain incredibly bright regions at their center, spewing high-energy jets into the depths of space, brighter than the light the galaxy’s stars can produce.
In 2015, director Yorgos Lanthimos released one of the weirdest, most unique, and darkly funny genre films in recent memory: The Lobster. His next film has a similar look, but feels very, very different, at least according to its first trailer. It’s called The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
We’re entering the home stretch of the long wait until we get to experience Taika Waititi’s vision for Thor: Ragnarok and see a bunch of wacky aliens fight in space to please Jeff Goldblum. But just because we already know an awful lot about the movie doesn’t mean that there isn’t more to learn.
This fall, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Steven Spielberg’s classic science fiction film, turns 40. Celebrating that milestone is Close Encounters of the Third Kind: The Ultimate Visual History, a richly detailed tome packed with concept art, behind-the-scenes photos, storyboards, and interviews. io9's got…
Yeah, yeah, Rick Sanchez is great and so is Morty and that joke you just made about McDonald’s Szechuan sauce was incredibly clever, but I need you to be quiet for a second and look at this art of the Vindicators. I mean really look at it. Drink it in. Savor it. Bask in its glory.
Monday’s total solar eclipse will provide some much-needed wholesome enjoyment for all of us here in the United States. To make things even sweeter, NASA—in collaboration with researchers at Montana State University—will be seizing the opportunity to launch some giant balloons during the event.
Big superhero events are always marketed with promises of permanent status quo changes and shocking developments. The problem is, nobody believes that anymore.
Superhero comics’ earliest rise to prominence occurred at the height of World War II—so it’s no surprise that the Nazi party became fodder for all sorts of spandex-clad superheroes, from their early days all the way up to 2017. As a reminder, here’s a few of the most famous examples of fictional heroes rising up to…
Solar eclipses are certainly one of the most striking astrophysical phenomena. The most important light of the day, the Sun, gets blacked out by the most important light of the night. But there’s actually nothing weird or surprising about that—sure, eclipses are rare, but with the Moon close and the Sun far away,…
Earlier this week, Tom Cruise injured himself doing a stunt for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 6. Production will be shut down for around two months as a result.
Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, about a man who stays young thanks to a magical portrait that does the aging for him, has been adapted countless times since it was first published in 1890. There’s yet another version in the works, and though its gender-swapping twist isn’t a first, it still sounds mighty…
If you were a kid in the late 1980s or early 1990s, Star Wars was almost totally gone from the pop culture landscape. However, one place it not only lived, but thrived, was on the page, thanks in large part to two Star Wars volumes: The Roleplaying Game and Sourcebook.
Earlier this week, DC Comics revealed a major, incredibly unexpected return of a character that many fans thought they’d never see again, thanks to the final page of Dark Nights: Metal #1. It was definitely a shocking moment in a comics event that’s been promising to be a bonkers exploration of the DC mythos for a…
