It’s not been a good time for DC’s biggest superheroes making sound decisions lately. Last week, Superman’s idea to restore his superpowers was very dumb, and it lead to him getting a silly new superpower. This week, Bruce Wayne made a decision that has huge ramifications for the future of Batman... which was both…
Ross Putnam is a film producer with a few credits under his belt, and now he’s started a Twitter feed where he just tweets the initial descriptions of female main characters in the movie scripts he’s reading. It’s endlessly fascinating, and kind of garbage.
Good news for everyone who won’t be able to make it to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: the script for the play will be on sale July 31. That’s right after the official opening of the play. And on Harry’s birthday.

When The Purge came out in 2013, I dismissed it as a ham-fisted parable of income inequality. The story of a future America where crime is legal for one night, and the rich use this fact to kill the poor for sport, it seemed almost too bludgeony. But The Purge: Anarchy was totally brilliant, and the third movie looks…
Romance abounds in fiction—and science fiction and fantasy are full of epic romances, too. But sometimes a romance feels less like something that’s true to the characters and more like a plot device the writers threw in at the last moment. Here are eight kinds of romance that we don’t ever need to see again.
Man, last night’s episode of The Flash was fun. “Welcome to Earth-2" sent Barry and Cisco to a parallel world where Barry is a nerd in tweed, Joe West is a lounge singer, and TVs are vertical instead of horizontal. (Madness!) And yet the most amazing change is that it turned Earth-1’s Flash into an imbecile and an…
The Star Wars expanded universe is huge. Really huge. Like, you just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly huge it really is. To grasp the full extent of this hugeness, a team of data scientists used a new computer program to analyze it, revealing some unexpected things about the extended saga.
It’s hump day, everyone, so you know what that means A) We can celebrate nearly being in the back end of the week with a veritable bounty of clips from Archer’s long-awaited seventh season, and B) phrasing.
Deadpool could be teaming up sooner than you expect. Maisie Williams throws her hat into the ring to replace Peter Capaldi on Doctor Who. A new viral site teases a ton of information for 10 Cloverfield Lane. Riverdale casts its Betty and Jughead, and a familiar villain returns to The Flash. Spoilers Now!
Not like this, Sonic. Not like this.
Everyone had a good time watching the new Star Wars so let’s not get angry and accuse each other of not enjoying the very idea of fun. But still, as with every other movie, there were a few problems and mid-sized logic gaps that were ignored in the name of entertainment. HISHE fixes all those problems with the obvious…
Whether they’re selling tickets to orbit or making sure the science funding keeps flowing, rocket companies and space agencies alike have a vested interest in getting the public jazzed about the cosmic beyond. So it’s no surprise that we’re now entering a golden age of space tourism propaganda—one that’s bringing back…
These days, creators struggle to keep the details of their upcoming movies and TV shows from leaking on the internet, so they can preserve their big surprises. And this leads to some pretty feeble attempts at misdirection, with cast and crew vehemently denying what everybody already knows. Sometimes, it works.…
The first time I read All-Star Squadron #20, somewhere in my pre-teens, it blew me away. There it was, the answer to the question I didn’t even know I had: how come superheroes don’t just fix everything?
Last month, Universal confirmed that it had cast Tom Cruise in 2017's The Mummy. And the studio’s monster madness continues with similarly massive star power, with the news that Johnny Depp has signed on to play the title role in The Invisible Man.
The Philip K. Dick Award celebrates the best science fiction books released first in paperback form. That combination of excellence and skipping the fancy hardcover edition tends to favor books that are unusual, edgy, or published by smaller houses. And you can win all six of this year’s finalists.
“Battery Life” is about a family of robots living in a sandy dystopia, while a nearby robot citadel is run by a robot zealot. For an 11-minute short, writer/director/animator Justin Nixon manages to do a lot of world-building, character development, and action. This thing is dense.
