‘Star Trek: Picard’ Trailer Breakdown: Every Hint About Where (And When) the New Season Will Boldly Go

The trailer for season 2 of Star Trek: Picard dropped yesterday, and there’s some Q-filled alternative timeline action going on. This brisk trailer packs in a lot. In addition to our first glimpse of John de Lancie reprising his role as Q, everyone’s favorite powerful, god-like entity, we get a confused Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), a de-Borged Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), and lots of other things to speculate about. As Picard says right at the beginning: “What the hell is happening here?” A...

Roxxon Explained: Behind the Sinister Marvel Organization Teased in ‘Loki’

Minor spoilers for Loki episode two follow. You might have noticed their flashing neon signs throughout Loki. Specifically, the signs for Roxxcart, the big-box store where thousands of people are taking refuge from a coming hurricane and where Loki and the Time Variance Authority agents descend on a mission in episode two of the Disney+ Marvel series. But Roxxcart and its neo-futuristic signage is more than just a chance for Loki to flex its Blade Runner influences — it’s a reference to Roxxon,...

‘The Rocketeer’ Star Billy Campbell Reflects on a Superhero Masterpiece as It Turns 30 [Interview]

This month marks a milestone for one of the most underrated Disney films. The Rocketeer arrived in theaters in the summer of 1991, delivering a 1930s-era adventure of a pilot who stumbles upon a jetpack being sought after by gangsters, FBI agents, Nazis, and millionaire industrialist Howard Hughes. Though the film failed to take off at the box office, its fans are legion (and this writer counts himself among them). As the film turns 30, /Film sat down virtually with Billy Campbell, the actor wh...

‘Loki’ is Basically Marvel’s Version of ‘Doctor Who’ – And That Rules, Actually

Do you remember how the feverish speculation surrounding the next lead in the legendary science fiction series Doctor Who would always, inevitably land on Tom Hiddleston? Rallying cries of “Tom Hiddleston as the 12th Doctor!” or “Tom Hiddleston should be the 13th Doctor!” frequently circulated the internet, as did fan art that depicted the Avengers star in front of the TARDIS, that blue box in which the Doctor traveled in time and space. Well, fans kind of got their wish with Loki, the new Marv...

‘Luca’ Review: Sweet and Simple is the Best Recipe in Pixar’s Exquisite Ghibli-Inspired Throwback

Simple is underrated. Especially at Pixar where, in recent years, filmmakers are putting more and more stock in high concept stories and high-quality CG innovations that are bringing the visuals of their films scarily close to reality. But is the ultimate end-goal of animation really to get as close to reality as it can be? Is an incredibly life-like cat that roams the streets of a photorealistic New York City really better than a chunky feline that looks like it stepped out of a Hayao Miyazaki...

Five Real Haunted Places That Would Make Killer Horror Movies

Horror movies get a lot of mileage from claiming to be based on, or at least inspired by, true stories. The Conjuring Universe is big on claiming they’re telling true tales of terror, and it was recently revealed that the writers of the first Conjuring and the director of Spiral: From the Book of Saw were teaming up to launch a horror franchise based on the true story of the allegedly haunted LaLaurie Mansion. But why stop there? There are a ton of allegedly real haunted places out there, waiti...

The ‘Loki’ Credits May Have Accidentally Revealed a Pretty Big Spoiler

Major spoilers follow for the second episode of Loki. The second episode of Loki dropped a pretty major bomb on us (literally and figuratively), with the reveal of the fugitive Loki Variant who is wreaking havoc across the Sacred Timeline. Our Loki Variant (Tom Hiddleston) has a pretty good idea of who this fugitive is when he comes face-to-face with them, but are they really exactly who they appear to be? According to the credits for the international versions of the most recent Loki episode, ...

The Second Episode of ‘Loki’ Features an Epic Marvel Standoff That Shakes Time Itself

Things are moving along quickly for Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and the TVA! There’s some investigative work going on, some travel through time (of course), and a major tête-à-tête that sets off a big ol’ disaster that will keep things busy for Loki’s next four episodes. Even though the second episode moves quickly, the element that makes it more than a wacky time travel show (so many timelines, so many variants) is Loki himself. That’s why this Disney+ series is such a compelling show — Loki is a ch...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Writer Zach Dean on the Real-World Issues That Inspired His Sci-fi Adventure [Interview]

The Tomorrow War is a big action movie full of time travel, monsters, special effects, and everything else you’d expect from a popcorn-powered summer release. But the core of the film is about what one generation owes the next, and the personal responsibility parents have to ensure a safer existence for their children. And it’s also about Chris Pratt shooting aliens, but who says you can’t have both? Screenwriter Zach Dean agrees with that much. Speaking with him on Zoom ahead of the film’s rel...

The Director of ‘Luca’ Reveals the Classic Italian Films That Influenced His New Pixar Movie

Luca, the latest film from Pixar, is a rollicking, sun-dappled adventure set in a small seaside Italian town. Like The Little Mermaid, the film follows a young sea dweller who discovers what it’s like to live on the surface world and yearns for freedom. The only problem is that small seaside town’s residents hate and fear sea monsters – kind of like how the residents of Berk hate and fear dragons in How to Train Your Dragon. But those earlier animation touchstones are far from the only projects...

‘F9’ Director Justin Lin on Returning to the Series and How You Top a Rocket Car [Interview]

When Justin Lin was directing 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, the idea of bringing the action series to an end was a pipe dream. Lin was preparing to exit the Fast and Furious franchise, moving on to direct a Star Trek film and episodes of prestige TV like True Detective, and the concept of bringing the Fast and Furious movies to a satisfying close was something better suited to casual chatter with star Vin Diesel, not something that was actually on the table.

‘The Tomorrow War’ Director Chris McKay on Making a ’90s-Style Blockbuster in 2021 [Interview]

The Tomorrow War may be a 2021 release, but it feels like a throwback. It would’ve been right at home in the ’90s, and director Chris McKay is a-okay with that. It’s a premise that could be preposterous: visitors from the future arrive in the modern day to recruit soldiers for a war against an alien race that hasn’t even started yet. But the film takes any potential silliness in stride, taking the premise seriously even while the characters themselves trade enough jokes to keep the mood light. ...

Five Things to Love About ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ on Its 30th Birthday

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, the 1991 gritty reboot of the Robin Hood legend, turns 30 today. And while there are plenty of warranted criticisms against the film, there’s also plenty of stuff to love, too. Sure, the movie has no real grasp on the historical elements it injects into the mythology, and Kevin Costner‘s attempt at an English accent is laughable. But Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is not without its charms. So here are five things to love about Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. 1...

Maybe you started recognizing him after he won an Oscar for his terrifying work in Whiplash.
