Sam Raimi wanted to make a superhero movie. After gifting the world with his absurdist 1987 horror-comedy masterpiece Evil Dead II, Raimi chased the rights to make movies out of both Batman and The Shadow. Both times, he failed. So he invented his own superhero—one who was really more of a deranged and revenge-crazed…
As more and more of the public flocks to theaters to catch a Black Panther screening, much of the conversation’s been dedicated to comparing and contrasting T’Challa and Killmonger’s opposing views on the role Wakanda should be playing—and should have played—outside of its borders.

Mystery and misdirection have pretty much always been a core part of the Cloverfield franchise, and in the first two films, that worked to the overarching plot’s advantage.

Michael B. Jordan’s stellar turn as Black Panther’s complex villain figure Erik Killmonger has the world talking.

Adaptations can be a tricky thing—especially when the source material you’re working with is something like Good Omens.

Early today, a Falcon 9 rocket delivered the PAZ radio communications satellite, along with a pair of SpaceX-owned internet satellites, to low-Earth orbit. It was an otherwise routine launch and deployment, save for the attempt to recover the rocket’s payload fairing—a feat that’s never been tried before.
A scifi tale by virtue of its setting, but an old-school film noir at heart thanks to its story, Mute is a puzzle with eccentric pieces that eventually all fit together—perhaps a bit too neatly, given its fondness for jagged edges. But its love of sleazy neon and some unusual themes do much to make up for its…
