The casting of Johnny Depp as the big villain of the Fantastic Beasts franchise has been causing consternation from some Harry Potter fans, due to the ongoing allegations of domestic abuse leveled against Depp by his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard. Director David Yates has now spoken about the issue directly after it…
When news broke that C.B. Cebulski was Marvel’s new Editor-in-Chief, many lauded his history of bringing fresh, diverse voices and perspectives into the company. But the news also rekindled longstanding rumors that Cebulski had been spent months writing for Marvel as “Akira Yoshida,” a Japanese man. Cebulski is not…
Who lives on the ground in the world of The Jetsons? Homeless people and walking birds. This isn’t a fan theory. This is canon. Fight me.
In Guillermo del Toro’s latest film The Shape of Water, a mute cleaning lady falls in love with a mysterious fishman. It’s a weird premise, to be sure, but nothing about how it’s handled feels weird. Instead, del Toro’s film is poetic, sumptuous, emotionally complex, and yet almost strikingly simple in its narrative.
The ladies of Mystery Incorporated don’t need that stupid dog anymore. Warner Bros. has announced that its digital studio Blue Ribbon Content is working on Daphne and Velma, a live-action film starring the women of Scooby Doo.
Last week saw the release of “Shada,” a legendarily canceled Doctor Who story from the ‘70s, finally completed. “Shada” is an icon in Doctor Who history, and one of many storylines from the show’s classic era than never got made. But the modern era has its own set of tales that were in the works, but never made it to…
Lego’s fan-driven Ideas program has resulted in some of the nerdiest sets in recent memory. There’s the DeLorean from Back to the Future, the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters, and The Big Bang Theory living room, just to name a few. Now, the toy company is adding Tron to the list.
These days, it’s no surprise to hear about primates controlling a robotic arm with their brains—even paralyzed humans have done it. But how would a brain need to adapt if one of the limbs was missing?
The first half of the CW’s massive crossover event Crisis on Earth-X aired last night, and it was pretty much 80 minutes of superpowered delight. There was so much to love, that honestly, all we wanted to do was breathlessly recount our favorite moments. So here they are, in all their glory.
Thor: Ragnarok’s talented director Taika Waititi has become well-known for his fashion sense but his Korg “costume” on set of the Marvel movie is even more interesting to look at.
Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham is an absolute treasure. He’s the best we’ve got as far as hints for season eight, revealing last month that filming was set to begin and that he’d already gotten the scripts (he’s since said HBO promised the scripts but haven’t actually delivered them yet). But he’s also not one…
If you got yourself a nice new Kindle during Deals Week, but need some books to fill it with, Amazon’s running a sale on over 200 serialized novels today, starting at just $1 each. We’ve dropped a few ideas below, but there’s a lot to sort through, so if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments.
There’s no confusing Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier with a Telltale-style adventure game. There is no exploration, no dialogue trees or puzzles to solve. It’s a three-hour movie peppered with simple A or B choices that influence how events play out. It’s about as basic as interactive fiction gets.
James Franco confirms his involvement in the Multiple Man movie. Get a look at the stars of Avengers: Infinity War. Daredevil casts a major supporting character for the next season. Plus, see Lennie James’ arrival on Fear the Walking Dead, more pictures from Agents of SHIELD’s return, and a tease for the Doctor Who…
Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon might sound derivative, but they bring a ton of new stuff to the Pokémon world, as well as some old stuff like the return of Team Rocket, and both games are on sale for $6-$7 off today. That’s a pretty sizable discount when it comes to brand new Nintendo games.
The year is 2054, and humanity’s prospects are very bleak in the wake of a devastating virus. London’s become an unstable wasteland of junk peddlers and wild-eyed zealots, but one tough, determined woman keeps it together for her much younger brother—until he’s spirited away by an unknown foe.
The Voyager 1 spacecraft might be the most famous time capsule in history, soaring through space as a testament to humanity’s achievements. We don’t know if intelligent life will ever find the craft or its contents, launched in 1977 to explore the planets before sailing indefinitely beyond our solar system. But at…
No symbol better encapsulates the problems that Warner Bros. is having getting the DCEU off the ground than Henry Cavill’s digitally-removed mustache in Justice League. To be fair, Cavill’s inability to shave the thing off isn’t entirely DC’s fault, but at this point it kinda feels like maybe, just maybe, WB’s cool…
