I mean, the animator in the gif above changes his shirt at least four times before he’s able to make the Ninja Monkey doll walk, like, a couple of steps. That’s a lot of time spent animating the most basic of motions lasting just seconds. Imagine all the elbow grease that goes into the more intense stuff, or even a…
The hate for the Star Wars prequels is vociferous and seemingly unending, but a new documentary wants to go back to the movies and re-examine if they were ever worth the anger... and maybe get you to reconsider your opinion on them.
On paper, USA’s new drama Falling Water sounds awfully complicated. It’s about three troubled strangers who somehow come to realize that they’re sharing the same dream, a connection that also links them to a mysterious and apparently ongoing battle to control the dreams of everyone in the world.
This 320 page cover art book is the perfect gift for the Marvel fan in your life, even if that person is yourself.
Rick & Morty co-creator (and co-voicer) Justin Roiland has teamed up with former Epic Games producer Tanya Watson to create Squanchtendo, a virtual reality studio focused on something something. Comics are fun! Look at those comics!
It seems like every frame of Steven Spielberg’s film adaptation of Ready Player One is going to be stuffed full of things to pay attention to.
If you’re a horror fan, you know that Stephen King’s It is being adapted for the big screen—and you likely still have some lingering trauma from watching the 1990 TV adaptation. Those memories aren’t unfounded: the It miniseries is still disturbing as hell. What’s surprising is that it’s not just because of that…
When the third Captain America film was in the early stages of development, Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios were still embroiled in discussions for a new contract to see the actor return as Tony Stark.

We love Afterlife with Archie’s horror-laden take on Riverdale, so we can’t wait to see what Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Francesco Francavilla, and Jack Morelli when they get their hands on an Archie Comics stalwart like Josie and the Pussycats. As this new preview shows, they’re doing some very sinister things.
Time-traveling problem-solver Dr. Sam Beckett experienced plenty of bizarre situations over five seasons of Quantum Leap, but certain episodes stand out as pushing the boundaries of weirdness to the extreme. They are, of course, our very favorite QL episodes, and with a little help from Ziggy, we’ve gathered them here.
An alien ship lands on Earth. Its occupant gets raised as human, hiding special abilities for fear of reprisal. But when the superpowered extraterrestrial becomes an adult, Truth, Justice and the American Way mean something very different. Because this strange visitor from another planet is black.
We were already looking forward to the new movie from Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) when it was called The Woods, and we had no idea it would be a sequel to The Blair Witch Project. Now we can barely contain ourselves waiting for its release, especially since each new trailer looks scarier than the last.
Speaking at the Edinburgh Television festival, Bryan Singer said that Legion and the other, unnamed X-Men-based TV show “will relate to future X-Men movies.” This might not work as well as he’s hoping.
We were blown away when Blitzway announced they were making a series of 1/6-scale figures based on the original Ghostbusters team at Comic-Con, but now they’ve revealed even more pictures of the gorgeous toys, and new details on how to get them... while unfortunately mistreating poor Winston Zeddemore yet again.

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that every movie anniversary will be celebrated with a giant special edition Blu-ray set for you to drool over. And Aliens is no exception.
