In 1997 Christophe André was kidnapped while serving with Doctors Without Borders in a town near Chechnya. Guy Delisle’s Hostage recounts the three months that André spent in captivity and proves the idea that all you really need to make a fantastic comic is a captivating story and a sense of style.
Studios spend a fair amount of time trying to stop spoilers. Whether it’s actors refusing to talk about anything in interviews for fear of accidentally revealing a secret or the president of Marvel Studios refusing to tell people the title of a film because it itself is a spoiler, secrecy is everywhere. Except for …
We can’t all be puppies—or even capybaras, for that matter. There’s a whole world of critters whose inner beauty goes unnoticed. Perfectly snuggly critters like naked mole rats have been mocked and called things like “the stuff of nightmares” or “the most terrifying thing I’ve ever seen.”
The live-action Beauty and the Beast movie has made over $1-billion, meaning a sequel is probably a near-guarantee. Disney probably won’t use their direct-to-video animated movie sequels (e.g. Enchanted Christmas or Magical World) as templates. Luckily, Emma Watson has a sequel idea of her own— unfortunately, it…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's roundup of the sweet toys and merchandise we’ve seen this week. We’ve got a magical Doctor Strange figure, a rather large Homecoming Spider-Man, and a miserable way to treat your favorite astromech unit. Also: Legend of Zelda Clue. No, really!
The first three episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale are now available on Hulu; we’ve already given our thoughts on the series, which remains mostly faithful to Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel of the same name, but there are some changes, some big, some small, that separate the two—and we’ve broken them down for you…
Creating a fictional company that’s basically Facebook, Google, and Apple rolled into one is no easy task. We know those brands. We live those brands. But in The Circle, co-writer and director James Ponsoldt had to do just that and so much more.
At this point, I would like to see a show based on the making of Star Trek: Discovery more than the actual Star Trek: Discovery. What is happening over there?
Anne Rice is famous the world over as the author of Interview With the Vampire and the other novels in her best-selling Vampire Chronicles series, the gothic, romantic vampire universe she’s been building out since the 1970s. Now, Paramount TV and Anonymous Content have optioned all 11 of them(!) to use as the basis…
When he’s not ruthlessly killing off our favorite A Song of Ice and Fire characters off left right and center, George R. R. Martin spends his time being one of the most adorable fanboys around.
Magic: The Gathering has issued a rare emergency card ban effective today. One card in a popular but dramatically overpowered two-card combo is now illegal in Standard play. Publisher Wizards of the Coast announced Felidar Guardian’s emergency ban two days after they put out their April “Banned and Restricted” cards…
Look at that stance! The utter disdain! The Lord of Apokolips is going to be smug as all get-out when the next DC Comics fighting game hits next month.
It’s a very good time to be a Stephen King fan. Besides It and The Dark Tower movies on the way and The Mist coming to TV, there’s now another King story getting retold on the big screen: a new adaptation of his 1980 novel, Firestarter.
One of the most memorable moments in Deadpool is unquestionably the “Sex Every Holiday” montage between Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and Vanessa Carlisle (Morena Baccarin). While it had plenty of special themed boning, spanning the length of an entire year, turns out it there was a lot more sex we didn’t get to see.
The most believable part of The Circle, which opens in theaters Friday, is the tech. Sadly, the film’s arguments surrounding privacy, which are integral to the movie’s plot, are a muddled mess, portrayed in ways that lack nuance and understanding of the world its audience is already living in.
You may have noticed there’s a lot of love for Riverdale, the CW’s insane Archie TV show. There’s just something special about taking the ultimate family-friendly Archie characters and forcing them to deal with murder, probable incest, betrayal, statutory rape, the most hilariously awful parents that have possibly…
It’s been a while since we last got to see the Wonder Woman movie in action, and it’s still looking damn great.
To this day, the Saturn V remains the largest and most powerful rocket NASA has ever blasted into space, which is perfectly reflected in Lego’s new Apollo Saturn V model. That model stands a full meter (over 39 inches) in height, with the Apollo lunar lander, lunar orbiter, and astronauts, hidden away inside.
There are new rumors about The Flash movie’s potential new director. The man behind Rogue One is already kicking around another idea for a Star Wars Story movie. Steven Moffat discusses Doctor Who taking on some challenging material this season. Plus, new looks at The Mummy and King Arthur. To me, my spoilers!
