Entertainment Weekly has reunited the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for its next issue, and the choice to put everyone in black basically makes it look like a high school reunion at an exclusively goth school. Jeez, the principal looks so uncomfortable on that grave they’ve dug for him.
Since there are approximately eleventy billion time travel shows on TV right now, you could have made a bundle betting on which one would get canceled first. If you had Time After Time, ABC’s reimagining of a 1979 movie involving H.G Wells (yes) and Jack the Ripper (yes, again) traveling on Wells’ time machine (third…
Aaron Sorkin just revealed that he has “meetings” coming up with both Marvel and DC—despite the fact that he’s never read a comic book. He’d like someone to find a character that he’d just love. Let’s help him out, shall we?
We know that Orlando Bloom is returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, but we haven’t gotten an actual glimpse of Will Turner in the footage we’ve seen so far. Now, we are at least sure we’ve seen his genes.
We got another good look at Spider-Man: Homecoming and there were a lot of new scenes to behold. Between it and the trailer we got last time, we think we’ve got a pretty good handle on what’s going on with Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Vulture.
Marvel is certainly glad to have Spider-Man back in its stable of characters, isn’t it? The new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming gives us a lot of time with Michael Keaton’s Vulture and a lot of references to the wider Marvel cinematic universe.
It turns out that when Power Rangers made it to test audiences, no one liked the kiss between Kimberly (Naomi Scott) and Jason (Dacre Montgomery). And it wasn’t a bunch of nostalgia-driven fans pissed off because obviously Kimberly should only ever be paired with Tommy, who isn’t even in this movie.
In Riverdale, the lovely insanity that is the TV version of Archie, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) are together. And, in this day and age, a relationship means a portmanteau couple name. Since no one can agree on just one for these two, Archie Comics just went ahead and filed a trademark…
As is our wont, we’ve taken some time put on our detective’s hats, pool our knowledge of rumor and comic books, and squint at every frame of the new Justice League trailer to tell you everything it’s got hidden in its many shades of grey.
Before Iron Fist was made, there were calls to make the character an Asian-American (including from us). A lot of arguments about the character revolved around his ’70s backstory being kind of, well, racist in the 21st century. But, having seen the show, something else is clear: the character of Danny Rand would have…
Mads Mikkelsen stepped into the hugely important role of Galen Erso, the man who made the Death Star work. The actor also had the equally Herculean task of keeping all the details about his character secret. Now that Rogue One’s out on Digital HD, we talked to Mikkelsen about all those details—and also about how some…
We’re being bombarded with new Batman footage. We already got a teaser featuring the Dark Knight and there will be a Justice League trailer this weekend. So we thought Batman should take us into the weekend doing his signature dance move. Share yours, or any other gif, in the comments.
Today is Red Nose Day in the UK, an annual charity telethon organized by Comic Relief. Part of Red Nose Day is always a number of sketches and shorts from various TV shows. One of the most famous also happens to be Steven Moffat’s very first filmed Doctor Who story: “The Curse of Fatal Death.”
Director Niki Caro is confused why anyone would think her live-action Mulan would have no songs. Perhaps it’s because she’s the one who said it would have no songs less than a week ago.
This week we’ve heard that Disney will be looking at “spinoff and prequel” ideas for the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie that has just come out. But they don’t need to look at other options, because there is one obvious and perfect choice: A movie about Gaston.
Multiple sources are saying that Michael Shannon, who has already done time in a comic book film as Zod in Man of Steel, is the man that Fox wants to play Cable in Deadpool 2. But then, there are so many reports about this role that it’s getting really confusing.
I really, really wish there was something more interesting going on in the footage from Netflix’s adaptation of Death Note. Instead, it looks exactly like every other drama from Netflix: angsty leads, washed out colors, and the occasional flash of a CG effect.
Whatever else might be true of the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, it’s also true that the filmmakers have put as much of the budget on the screen as humanly possible. And as you can tell when you watch the film’s opening scene—available here and now for your viewing pleasure—it has paid off, at least in in the…
You will never be able to enjoy the fun—and easy—question “What’s the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything?” again. Not once you’ve seen Senator Ted Cruz start off the confirmation hearing of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, with it.
