Tiger King 2 Coming To Netflix This Year With 'More Madness And Mayhem'

I'll freely admit that I got swept up in the "Tiger King" craze. The Netflix docuseries was well-made in the sense that it did a good job dropping strange, explosive twists to keep us hooked from episode to episode. That said, the minute the original docuseries ended, I was content to move on. I really didn't want to spend any more time with Joe Exotic, a twisted character who was so sure he was going to get a pardon from former President Trump that his lawyer had a limo waiting outside the pris...

Spencer Trailer: Kristen Stewart Is A Troubled Princess Diana

Kristen Stewart is Princess Diana in "Spencer," Pablo Larraín's haunting portrait of the Princess of Wales during one very long Christmas holiday. We seem to be overloaded with Princess Diana projects lately: there's "The Crown" and there's even a musical hitting Netflix in October. But that doesn't mean you should sleep on Larraín's movie, which is elegant, sad, and oddly even a little hopeful (despite the fact that we all know how things turn out for Diana in the end). A new "Spencer" trailer ...

The Best-Selling Sony PlayStation 5 Games Right Now

It may not be the best-selling console in the United States, but Sony’s PlayStation 5 is likely the most sought-after. More than a year after the PS5’s launch, the console still remains in short supply. You can’t just walk into your local Walmart or Best Buy expecting to see one on the shelves — the consoles are only available at stores in short, oft-unannounced restock bursts. Part of the issue, of course, was the global semiconductor shortage. But another huge part of the equation is high dema...

Foundation Star Leah Harvey Reinvents What An Isaac Asimov Hero Can Be [Interview]

If you Google images for Salvor Hardin, a key character from Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" novel series, you'll find illustrations of white men. But the new Apple TV+ adaptation of the books modernizes the classic books in some key ways. Character development is pushed the forefront, more action is emphasized, many of the male characters are no longer male, and many of them are no longer white by default. This Salvor Hardin is a battle-hardened soldier and a brilliant leader, and is played by non-...

12 Awesome Sci-Fi Movies That Never Got Sequels

Many of the greatest science fiction franchises of all-time have benefitted from multiple cinematic installments that help expand their mythologies. Not every sequel to "Star Wars," "Star Trek," and "Alien" is great, but few would argue that their legacies are isolated to just one film. Occasionally, a sequel is even better than the original; recent films like "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Blade Runner 2049" surpassed expectations and became classics in their own right.But not every sci-fi series ge...

Agents Of SHIELD Star Says She's Not In Secret Invasion, Stop Bothering Her At Target

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanding outwards in bigger and bolder directions, fans of Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." have been clamoring for the popular characters from the Marvel Television production to cross over into the MCU proper in a future film or TV series. That possibility has always seemed rather unlikely, especially considering the fact that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." operated under Marvel Television -- a division entirely separate from Kevin Feige's purview that focuses mo...

Pixar Supporting Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie

In the house of Pixar, character is key. For over 25 years, the most reliable studio in animation has dazzled and devastated audiences with its profound understanding of character-driven storytelling. No one would care about these talking toys, blue-collar monsters, or middle-aged superheroes if they weren't full of motivation, depth, and thematic growth. We don't love Buzz Lightyear because he looks cool and has a famous catchphrase; we love him because he dwells in existential misery before le...
