  • Saw Gerrera Returns In A New ‘Rebels’ Trailer

    Posted Monday, January 2nd, 2017 06:00 pm GMT -4

    With ‘Rogue One’ showing us the immediate lead up to the events of the original ‘Star Wars’ while ‘Rebels’ chronicles the early days of the Rebel Alliance, the matter of whether or not the two would connect in some way was always more a question of “when” than “if”. Indeed, ‘Rogue One’ alone introduced a […]

  • Is Sony’s Animated ‘Spider-Man’ Film Introducing Miles Morales?

    Posted Monday, January 2nd, 2017 10:30 am GMT -4

    With all the hubbub over Tom Holland’s appearance in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and of course, next summer’s ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘, all eyes have been on Spider-Man’s live-action future at the box office. With all that attention focused elsewhere, many of us may have lost sight of the other Spider-Man movie that Sony has in the […]

  • ‘Grimm’ Creators Are Anything But In Response To The Series’ Cancellation

    Posted Friday, December 30th, 2016 06:00 pm GMT -4

    ‘Grimm’ succeeded where countless other shows failed: Friday nights on NBC. It’s a night (and a network) that has doomed shows from ‘Constantine‘ to ‘Dracula‘, but ‘Grimm’ managed to beat the odds. The series not only survived, but thrived for the past five years on a network with a reputation for canceling cult shows that […]

    Posted Tuesday, December 27th, 2016 10:00 am GMT -4

    The latest adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘It‘ has been progressing fairly smoothly ever since the project emerged from development hell last year. Much of the promotion for the film, which is currently in post-production at New Line Cinema, has so far taken the form of publicity stills and photos from the set. Arriving just in […]

  • The International Trailer For ‘Power Rangers’ Is Heavy On Action

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 06:00 pm GMT -4

    Back in October, we got our first proper look at Lionsgate’s upcoming ‘Power Rangers’ with the debut of the film’s trailer. That trailer (which we described at the time as resembling a mashup of ‘Chronicle‘ and ‘The Breakfast Club’) introduced audiences to the re-imagined versions of our favorite teenagers with attitude and offered a sense […]

  • Final Frontier Friday: ‘Family’

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 02:30 pm GMT -4

    Welcome back for another ‘Final Frontier Friday‘! When I realized that this week’s column was going to fall on December 23, my first impulse (because I am just that shameless) was to wonder if I could find a ‘Star Trek’ episode that was even vaguely Christmassy. It took all of five seconds for me to […]

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 12:00 pm GMT -4

    Guillermo del Toro is arguably the most imaginative filmmaker of his generation. You know it, I know it, and Netflix knows it. The streaming giant has partnered with del Toro to produce the upcoming animated series ‘Trollhunters’ which premieres today.

  • Produce Dave Filoni Wants To Connect ‘Rebels’ To ‘Rogue One’

    Posted Friday, December 23rd, 2016 10:00 am GMT -4

    With ‘Rogue One’ finally in theaters, it’s time to turn our attention once again to the future of ‘Star Wars’. No, not ‘Episode VIII’ – though that is now less than a year away. I’m talking about ‘Star Wars Rebels’, the animated series that chronicles the early days of the Rebel Alliance. While ‘Rebels’ takes […]

  • Denis Villeneuve Is In Talks To Direct Legendary’s ‘Dune’ Remake

    Posted Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 09:00 pm GMT -4

    We all know that the man who controls the spice controls the universe, but what about the man who directs it? We reported last month that Legendary Entertainment had reached an agreement with the Herbert estate that allowed them to snag the rights to Frank Herbert’s classic novel ‘Dune’. Details on this new adaptation remain […]

  • New ‘Blade Runner 2049′ Stills Arrive, Director Targets R-Rating

    Posted Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 06:30 pm GMT -4

    With ‘Blade Runner 2049′ now entering post-production, we can at last expect to start getting more and more looks at the film as it takes shape.

  • ‘Star Wars’ Infographic Shows How The Empire Lost

    Posted Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 03:00 pm GMT -4

    The statistical masterminds over at FiveThirtyEight might be best known for their analyses of American politics, but that’s not all they do. With their latest infographic, they’ve turned that analytical eye to a galaxy far, far away. The chart, which you can find below, is a Sankey diagram based on Charles Minard‘s 1869 illustration of […]

  • ‘Rogue One’ Director Shares The Original Ending

    Posted Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 09:00 am GMT -4

    Movies are constantly changing, often right up until the minute they’re released (and in the case of ‘Star Wars’ movies, sometimes long after release). And naturally, some of these changes are bigger than others. For example, it was reported several months ago that ‘Rogue One’ had undergone a number of reshoots late in the production […]

  • Goldar Gets A New Look For ‘Power Rangers’

    Posted Tuesday, December 20th, 2016 09:01 am GMT -4

    The toy lines have always been part and parcel of the ‘Power Rangers’ experience, as generations of fans can attest. Given that, it’s only right that so far we’ve arguably gotten a more complete sense of the upcoming reboot (visually, at least) from merchandise previews than from any source directly connected to the film. The […]
