A great love story can totally grab your heartstrings. But you know what is guaranteed to make you start sobbing like a drunken longshoreman? Friendship. Science fiction and fantasy are full of platonic relationships that punch you in the gut. So in no particular order, here are the 17 friendships most guaranteed to…
These are the work of Jesse Bray, whose portraits of famous pop culture characters have just enough geometry to them to be interesting but aren’t completely abstracted.
Don’t believe me? Watch this new trailer and see for yourself. Building off the recently released clip of White Canary getting in a bar brawl in the ‘70s, this promo really plays up the “wacky band of misfits” saving the universe to a ‘70s music soundtrack.
They finally made a movie sequel to the original Star Wars trilogy. And the good news is? The Force Awakens easily captures the charm and excitement of the first three movies. Here’s our spoiler-free review.
We don’t know who Star-Lord’s father is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe quite yet, but we may know who’s playing him—the current rumor is that director James Gunn wants Kurt Russell to play the mysterious sire of Peter Quill for the much-anticipated Marvel sequel.
Marvel’s man movies has played a huge role in introducing heroes big and small to a whole new audience that has never picked up a comic before. But with so many films released, there’s fans out there who might want to take the first step into reading the comics the movies have come from. Here are just a few…
Tucked away in the recently released Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Blu-ray megaset are a few never-before-seen deleted scenes, including this one, where a drunken Drax the Destroyer discusses the origins of his tattoos with a couple of DT hallucinations.
Marvel’s Phase 2 box set truly is a trove laden with treasures. Earlier today we got to see Loki live out his fantasies in a deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World—but this time, we turn to the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the fantastic improv skills of Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt.
A sane person would say the best part of Marvel completing a series of movies is getting to see those movies. That person would be half right. The other great part is they get to release a big Blu-ray box set collecting all types of information about the movies.

The Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon took a brief hiatus before making it’s return this weekend, and I’m glad it did. It made me have at least an extra week of thinking this show had really turned a corner. Then “The Backstabbers” happened, and at least it had an appropriate title for how I felt?
Marvel Animation’s current output of shows leaves a little to be desired—too much of a focus on nodding to the movies, not enough doing their own thing. When Guardians of the Galaxy began, I thought much the same. But somehow, in a few short weeks, it’s gone from disappointing to delightful.
That headline might sound like it’s being awfully snarky—and it kind of is—but at the same time, this week Guardians of the Galaxy actually took the first baby steps from being a lukewarm repeat of a fantastic film to being a breezy, fun sci-fi cartoon. All it took was finding a little heart to do so!
It’s all change in this week’s all new comics—Marvel is continuing its “All-New, All Different” reboot with new comics for the Guardians, Captain America, Spider-Gwen, and more. Chewbacca begins his own series. Plus, The Goon returns for Halloween, and Superman has A BEARD! Let’s dig in, shall we?
In the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, James Gunn did a pretty spectacular job of fleshing out the five heroes of the team in relatively equal manner. But so far, the animated series is struggling a little more in this regard—when it gets it right, it’s every bit as fun as the movie. When it gets it wrong though, it…
Long before Vin Diesel was Groot, he teased fans about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So few thought saying a few words as a talking tree would be enough for the star. In a new interview with io9, Diesel teased something very different could be on the horizon.
The very first shot of Marvel’s new Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon is of Star-Lord’s cassette player. A hand reaches down onto it, the thumb presses play... and then Hooked on a Feeling blares out, as if a million executives simultaneously cried out “Oh god you loved that weird movie we made last year. What do we do…
It’s officially the start of fall TV season, and seven new shows are launching. But only one of them has bowled us over. Plus Gotham is back, and nuttier than ever. And how will the Doctor save Clara from the Daleks? Plus, David Tennant as the Fugitoid! All this and more, on This Week’s TV!
