Artist Prasad Bhat made this fantastic art series, The Evolution, that tracks the career of famous actors and the iconic roles they’ve played in different movies. It’s great because the expression of each actor never changes (and the expressions are so, so on point), even through all the characters’ costumes and wigs…
After last year’s fight over the TV rights to Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time, Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal has said that the legal situation is sorted and a new adaptation is already on its way.
The reboot of the Tomb Raider movie series, based on the iconic gaming franchise, has found its new Lara Croft: Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, perhaps best know for her roles in The Danish Girl and as the android Ava in Ex Machina.
Oxford’s Global Priorities Project has compiled a list of catastrophes—both natural and self-inflicted—that could kill off 10 percent or more of the human population. It’s a real buzzkill of a report and it says that any of these catastrophes could happen within the next five years.
Remember how Fox showed footage from Deadpool at Comic-Con last year and a pirated version showed up online? Well, that’s not going to happen this year. Because Fox won’t be giving would-be footage bootleggers the opportunity.
If you watched this past Sunday’s season premiere of Game of Thrones, you were treated with a brief return to Dorne, that south-most region of Westeros where last season’s most boring storyline took place. And then, after seeing one of the show’s greatest deviations from the books, you started wondering what the hell…
Twenty-two years before WALL·E’s sermon about over-consumption hit theaters, an even better movie robot had already saved the day. Every child of the ‘80s wanted Short Circuit’s Johnny Five as their best friend, and now that we’re all grown up, that might actually come true with a little help from Lego.
File this under definitely not good: global warming is depleting the oceans of oxygen. You know, that little molecule that we, along with all other complex life forms, require in order to breathe and therefore live.
The hit USA show Mr. Robot put filmmaker Sam Esmail on the map. His first movie, Comet, was criminally underseen and now the success of the TV series has moved the needle on another one of his screenplays. It’s called Sequels, Remakes, and Adaptations.

Current A&E drama Damien picks up where The Omen ended, fast-forwarding to cast the Antichrist as a 30-year-old New Yorker who’s rediscovering his demonic destiny. It’s an uneven show. But Satan’s pop-culture moment surges forth with the announcement that an Omen prequel movie is now in the works.
Guy Gavriel Kay has carved out a unique niche, writing fantasy novels that take real-life historical settings and transforming them into something new and different. His latest novel, Children of Earth and Sky, takes place in a version of 16th century Europe that’s under threat from a version of the Ottoman Empire,…
Oh dear. Even after the recent trailer, much of Rogue One is still a mystery to us. But Mads Mikkelsen might have just pulled the curtain back on a rather important detail about his character. Seriously, big spoilers ahead.
I got a bunch of big questions this week: What’s next for Star Wars after Episode IX? Why has The Flash TV series gotten so dumb? And what happens when someone points out the Avengers are also probably murderers? Big answers to follow!
Donnie Darko is one of those movies I watched and rewatched endlessly during college. The small, but bold, tale of a troubled young man saving his family and friends spoke to me in ways I don’t quite recall 15 years later. I just know I loved it. However, rewatching the director’s cut of the film (released on DVD in…
This summer some huge, epic action films will be coming to a theater near you, but none of them look like they can hold a candle to Kubo and the Two Strings. The third trailer is here and it shows an adventure on an epic scale we rarely see in movies—and definitely not movies made with stop-motion animation.
Time Warner’s Boomerang network will begin airing the animated adventures of Charles Schulz’ “Peanuts” characters starting May 9. The shorts will air daily at 11:30am. However, the characters may not look exactly how fans of the classic cartoons (like A Charlie Brown Christmas) remember.
Like the country he represents, Captain America has changed a lot over the years. Though the 75-year-old super soldier was born as a reaction to fascism, Cap has gone through all manner of cancellations and team changes, appeared in various shows and PSAs, and come out the other end of Marvel’s cinematic universe as a
