It’s now come out that Tolkien, who has safeguarded the rights of his father J.R.R. Tolkien’s…
Today, Marvel (under Disney) said that it is ending its relationship with Gazillion Entertainment, who makes Marvel Heroes. In an e-mail, a Marvel representative wrote:
Despite the film’s less-than-stellar box office performance, Adam Savage and the Tested crew spent a bit of time behind-the-scenes of Blade Runner 2049 while the movie was in production, and seeing how the special effects team fakes the ocean by splashing around in a monstrous water tank is especially fascinating.
If you’ve seen Joachim Trier’s other movies, like Louder Than Bombs or Oslo, August 31st, you might not have expected him to make a horror movie about a young woman with superpowers. But the Norwegian director says Thelma is all about getting back to his fairy tale roots.
We’ve reached the final phase of marketing for Star Wars: The Last Jedi: the copious TV spots. Several have come online in the last few hours, all with a little new footage, but nothing too spoilery.
Many scifi and fantasy books explore religious themes: Octavia E. Butler’s Earthseed, Philip K. Dick’s Mercerism, etc. Onscreen, there’s no bigger spirituality movement than Star Wars’ Force. But there’s more to religion in genre movies and TV than the Jedi... so much more. Have you heard the good news?
Over the past few months, Netflix has really gotten into establishing itself as a place for Asian-made genre content. Between the oodles of anime series its licensing and a whole host of Korean acquisitions, it’s becoming a go-to place for foreign genre. Now it’s bolstering that with a new Korean superhero movie.
When scientists discovered an Earth-like planet orbiting our closest star, Proxima Centauri b, Gizmodo said it could have been the discovery of the century. But today, scientists are announcing a new exoplanet only 11 light years away that could be even more important.
Betty’s mom is really terrible at her job. Not only is Riverdale’s resident media mogul using The Riverdale Register to service her propaganda machine against the Southside Serpents, bringing the town on the brink of civil war, but apparently she thinks a man curing cancer isn’t worth a goddamn cover story.
If you’re sick and tired of repeatedly seeing pearls snap off a necklace and the bodies of Bruce Wayne’s parents slumping to the cold, grimy concrete of Park Row, just imagine how Martha Wayne feels. That’s right: she hates it and says as much in a spoofy fake commentary track for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Our first look at Deadpool 2 in action is finally here. But you’re going to have to get through a totally weird, and pretty hilarious, skit to get to it.
Supergirl casts a member of a cosmic DC race. Poe Dameron goes drifting in a new Last Jedi TV spot. You’re getting a little less Orville than expected this season. Plus, the first look at Rampage, more Happy! clips, and gruesome new Gotham footage. Behold, spoilers!
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is both the best and worst of everything we’ve seen from the Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe movies. There are plenty of things to like, and about an equal number to dislike. But ultimately, its good things bumped up against the bad enough to leave me with hope and excitement for what’s…
Sometimes the best posters come from a simple idea—like this one, which is shaped like a window with the coolest thing ever outside.
We first told you about it a year ago—and now, after a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign, the finished product is here: Catalysts, Explorers & Secret Keepers: Women of Science Fiction. It’s a collection of new and reprinted works, framed as a take-home exhibit from the Museum of Science Fiction.
Last night was the midseason finale of Star Wars Rebels season four, and while it was light on mythology and mystery, it did establish that Hera Syndulla may be one of the best Star Wars characters of all time.
Having just weathered a news cycle that saw Hollywood execs attacking the movie review aggregation service for allegedly hurting box office receipts, Rotten Tomatoes has chosen a strange time withhold the score for this week’s Justice League. But that’s just what it’s doing—and no one is going to be happy.

As Elton John once sang, it’s lonely out in space—so it helps if you have a close family member around to help you get the job done. However, it’s also way scarier when something goes wrong, as it does for the mother-and-son team stationed on Mars in Tom Teller’s suspenseful short Icarus.
