Exclusive: Thor’s Roommate Darryl May Return to the MCU to Coincide With ‘Thor: Love & Thunder’

Director Taika Waititi stepping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thor: Ragnarok completely revitalized the God of Thunder’s film franchise. Not only did it take Thor into a weirder side of sci-fi, but it also injected the franchise with new comedic energy. Helping to set the stage for Thor: Ragnarok was a short film that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con in 2016. Entitled Team Thor, the short revealed what Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was up to during the events of Captain America: Civil War, and...

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial takes to the skies when Elliot and the titular friendly alien fly over the trees on a bike and across the face of the glowing moon in the night.

Masters of the Universe: The Motion Picture Is Worth Revisiting

With the success of the toyline, a hit cartoon, and a slew of other merchandise, the franchise had no choice but to try and make more money off of a live-action film. This muscle-bound movie didn’t hit quite in the height of He-Mania, but a year after the action figure sales plummeted . It was a troubled production, not well-received at the time of its release in 1987, and barely given a chance to make an impression, but it’s another gem that was always destined to become a cult classic, ado...

‘Loki’ Head Writer Explains How Marvel’s Multiverse Works

This post contains spoilers for Loki season 1. With Phase 4 of the MCU in full swing, things are getting more complicated by the day. Back in the simpler times, all our worries boiled down to alien invasions and the occasional inter-dimensional cosmic entity. But ever since Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) solved time travel, things have gotten exponentially weirder and much more confusing. Loki took that about 20 steps further by introducing the idea of the multiverse. The Time Variance Authorit...

‘Bright,’ ‘Yes Day’ Sequels Coming to Netflix, But Don’t Expect a ‘6 Underground 2’

If there was ever a studio best-equipped to withstand the uncertainty and trying times of a modern pandemic, you’d be hard-pressed to find any better answers than Netflix. Theaters are shut down? No problem, just release some buzzy titles straight to streaming and rake in the views with little to no competition. Normal filming productions have to be halted? Just grab a skeleton crew, shoot at an isolated location to make social distancing easier, and cast no more than two actors for one of the ...

Winston Duke and Zazie Beetz talk about ‘Nine Days,’ a life-affirming film about the soul

In “Nine Days,” Winston Duke plays Will, a man who spends his lonely days and nights in some otherworldly outpost, monitoring the lives of humans through their own eyes on a wall of vintage TV sets inside his home. When one of his favorites dies suddenly, Will is shaken even as his work requires him to screen the unborn souls, as personified by the adult men and women who come to his door, to fill the new vacancy on Earth. The candidates for this strange sort of soul-placement service include go...

Who is the Main ‘The Suicide Squad’ Villain? Starro Explained

There’s no other way to say this: Starro is a giant alien starfish that can absorb nukes and shoot lasers from its tentacles. If you really think about it, who better to face off against the Suicide Squad? The upcoming movie directed by James Gunn is already jam-packed with an insane variety of villains, so if they’re gonna team up against a single force, it better be a memorable one. And Starro’s so incredibly odd that it requires an entire explainer. So here it is — everything you need to kn...

Michael B. Jordan is Making His Own Black Superman Project for HBO Max

This is huge. Actor Michael B. Jordan, long rumored to be associated with a Superman project to various degrees, is reportedly taking matters into his own hands for HBO Max. Collider has the scoop that Jordan will be developing his own iteration of Superman entirely separate from the traditional Kal-el. Instead, the focus will be on Val-Zod, a Black character described as “…one of the last Kryptonians of his universe and the second to use the mantle of Superman.” There are no details yet whe...

Grimes and rapper Lil Uzi Vert claim he's in the process of 'legally' buying a planet, but experts say it's 'bogus'

Lil Uzi Vert performs onstage during the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival Daytime Stage Rich Fury/Getty Images for iHeartMedia On Thursday, Grimes said Lil Uzi Vert was buying WASP-127b, a planet that was discovered in 2016.

‘F9’ Writer Daniel Casey Adapting ‘Battle of the Planets’ for the Big Screen

After the Fast & Furious movies boldly went where no other car franchise has gone before (okay, almost no other car franchise), Fast 9 writer Daniel Casey is taking the leap from a brief rocket car-fueled trip to space to…well, a lot more space. Deadline has the news that Casey, who received both screenwriting and story by credit for Fast 9, will be writing the script for the movie adaptation of the Japanese anime Battle of the Planets (which is also known as Science Team Ninja Gatchaman in ...

‘UFO’ Trailer: Showtime and J.J. Abrams Think the Truth is Out There

UFO sightings have been going on for decades, but in 2017, the New York Times released a story revealing that the Pentagon had been secretly tracking UFOs for years. It was something of a sea change, rekindling the debate about UFOs and aliens all over again. Now, Showtime and J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot Productions have the four-part docuseries UFO delving into the phenomenon, as people continue to wonder if we’re alone in the universe.

James Cameron’s Genius Makes Aliens One of the All-Time Greats

As kids, my brother and I had a penchant for wrapping our plastic weapons together with duct tape and tip toeing through our home in search of extra-terrestrial life. “Check those corners,” I would say while clasping my Nerf gun turned pulse rifle, which was attached to a yellow and green Super Soaker turned grenade launcher. At some point, one of us would yell, “Contact!” before leaping about the floor and blasting imaginary Xenomorphs to smithereens. Inevitably, one of us would always get spra...

The Opening Scene of the ‘Loki’ Finale Was an Homage to ‘Contact’

Who caught the Contact homage in the season finale of Loki? There have been a lot of comparisons made between Loki and Doctor Who, and the Disney+ series is of course packed with Marvel Easter eggs. What you might have missed is the reference in the opening scene to Robert Zemeckis‘ excellent 1997 adaptation of the Carl Sagan novel, Contact. Scientists once argued about whether or not the universe was geocentric (Earth-centered) or heliocentric (sun-centered). The opening scene in the Loki f...

He-Man Episodes to Watch Before Netflix’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe may have been created to sell a toyline, but there is no doubting that even by itself, the show was a cultural colossus that lived up to the image of its musclebound star. The cartoon crafted many of the elements that fans associate with the character and lore behind the franchise, as it explored a fantasy world full of magic, technology, and other sci-fi elements; a land where anything felt like it could fit into the wonderful menagerie called Eternia.

‘Lisey’s Story’ Spoiler Review: Maybe Stephen King is the Wrong Choice to Adapt Stephen King

“Everything the same?” This is how Scott Landon, one of many writer characters in the written works of Stephen King, greets his wife, Lisey, when coming home from a hard day of catatonic gazing by the dream pool. Like many creative people, he’s half in this world and half out. His favorite haunt is Boo’ya Moon, a mystical realm, like Never Never Land only scarier and potentially more lobotomizing. It’s the human imagination, literalized as a place of peril and wonder, and it’s only ever a blink...

‘Ted Lasso’: 5 ways Apple’s surprise soccer hit stole our hearts

“Ted Lasso,” last summer’s sleeper TV hit, returns for a much-anticipated second season on Apple TV+ July 23 and the smiles plastered across our faces couldn’t be any toothier. For the uninitiated, “Ted Lasso” follows a folksy, twangy-voiced and perpetually optimistic American football coach (Jason Sudeikis) who is hired to oversee a mediocre British soccer team by the squad’s frosty new owner Rebecca Walton (Hannah Waddingham). The catch? Ted doesn’t know a lick about soccer. Yes, it’s a wacky ...

What is the Multiverse? Five Must-See Alternate Timeline TV Episodes to Watch After ‘Loki’

Look, I get it — multiverse storytelling can be confusing. Marvel’s Loki streaming series is only the latest in a long line of stories that plays fast and loose with the idea of multiple or parallel timelines. Loki follows the God of Mischief (Tom Hiddleston) after he gets involved with the Time Variance Authority, or the TVA, as they try to correct problems in individual timelines. This provides us a chance to see lots of variant Lokis (including our favorite chompy green boy) and opens up opp...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Wants to Be ‘Independence Day,’ But You, Sir, Are No ‘Independence Day’

I love dumb movies and I can’t get enough of dumb movie moments. You know the ones! They tend to aim big and throw “realism” to the wind, all in favor of delivering heightened emotions amid satisfying thrills. What’s more, I don’t think there should be any shame or stigma attached to that statement. There’s plenty of room in a well-rounded palette for all sorts of films, after all — from highbrow to lowbrow and everything in between. Something as iconic as Jurassic Park, for example, may not be...
