It’s the end of the week, and we all feel like we’re emerging from an endless torrent of tribbles bouncing off our heads. So let loose with the gif party.
Riverdale loves nothing more than casting former teen idols as the adults of this show. So far, this show has gifted us with Luke Perry as Archie’s dad, Fred. We know that soon his mom will show up, played by Molly Ringwald. And last night we met Jughead’s dad, Skeet Ulrich. These former stars as a layer of meta-irony…
If you’re a fan of science fiction and fantasy books, this has been a good week for you. Along with Philip Pullman finally giving the follow-up to His Dark Materials a release date, Neil Gaiman has announced that his next work will be a sequel to Neverwhere.
Following on the heels of revealing Rey’s new hair on an empty box, another Star Wars: Episode VIII mystery has been answered—namely, whether The Last Jedi refers to a single Jedi or a group of Jedi, since both the singular and the plural form are “Jedi.” The solution comes to us via the release of several…
We’ve got four pieces of art, each heralding a Looney Tune’s insertion into the life of a classic DC comics character. And the pairings are the only things we know.
Just the fact that it’s one of three projects tackling the same idea already suggests a problem. But there are a lot more warning signs that maybe, maybe, this isn’t the best project for Sam Raimi to be tackling.
We know that all movies change a lot, but it’s still shocking to think that Moana, whose role as the eventual leader of her people was central to the movie, was once supposed to have six older brothers.
American Horror Story’s Next Season Will Be About the Most Terrifying Thing Imaginable: The 2016 Election
On the plus side, showrunner Ryan Murphy didn’t make us spend months guessing what the new season’s theme was going to be. Unfortunately, now that we know, we’re going to be nauseous every time we think about it.
Star Wars is sexy, sure. But I’d still question the logic of anyone who decides to have sex while listening to a band that specializes in what was once called “jizz music.”
With the announcement that the long-awaited follow-up to His Dark Materials will be hitting bookshelves this October, we’ve dredged up every buried thought about Philip Pullman’s universe we’ve kept inside for 17 years. Now we’re letting loose with some thoughts about everything we that think should be in the new…
We knew the beasts and the magic were fake, but did you know that pretty much everything you saw on screen wasn’t there? At this point, an effects reel could reveal that Eddie Redmayne was actually five rabbits in a coat with some tremendous special effects work and I’d believe it.
Philip Pullman’s seminal trilogy started with The Golden Compass in 1997 and ended with The Amber Spyglass in 2000. Or so we thought—because now, the author has announced an entire sequel trilogy, The Book of Dust, will come in October.
Niki Caro (The Zookeeper’s Wife) will direct the live-action Mulan movie for Disney. That, as The Hollywood Reporter points out, will make her and Ava DuVerney (for A Wrinkle in Time) the only female directors for movies that have over $100 million in the budget.
The latest dire DC Extended Universe rumors making the rounds is that not only is Ben Affleck not directing the Batman movie, the man wants out of the role entirely. We have a message for him: Sorry, Ben. You’re stuck as Batman. So you might as well suck it up.
Won’t you be our valentine?
After the passing of Kenny Baker last year, you’d be forgiven for assuming that Lucasfilm and Disney would go the all-robot (or part-robot-part-CGI) route for the rest of R2-D2’s movies appearances. Instead, the role has gone to Jimmy Vee (Doctor Who).
Included on the Doctor Strange digital release are a couple of looks at the upcoming Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok movies. These looks are in the form of concept art, which almost entirely focuses on the technologically impressive capital of Wakanda… Continue reading
One of the most charming moments of Doctor Strange was the end tag which brought Thor into the Sanctum Sanctorum to ask some help from the Sorceror Supreme. Here’s a little behind-the-scenes featurette from the Doctor Strange release which shows what goes into making these tags (besides beer).
One of the primary ways to be a nerd is to collect things, which is not always an easy task. Sometimes, these collections are so large and/or complicated, and we’re so obsessed with them, some of us actually feel the records of them, to make sure we’re obsessing at maximum efficiency. What do you love so much you have…
