Rumor: ‘Star Wars’ Movies from ‘Game of Thrones’ Creators May Head to The Old Republic

After Star Wars Episode 9 hits theaters this winter, we don’t know what’s coming next on the big screen from the galaxy far, far away. Director Rian Johnson has a new Star Wars trilogy he’s working on, and Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have another (supposed) trilogy that will be completely separate from the primary saga and the aforementioned developing trilogy. But now we might have an idea of what Benioff and Weiss will give us, and if this rumor is true, it’s right u...

A ‘Bird Box’ Sequel is On Its Way This Fall — As a Book

Time to open up the Bird Box universe again. After Josh Malerman‘s 2014 post-apocalyptic thriller novel inspired the Netflix mega-hit starring Sandra Bullock and that life-threatening viral “challenge,” we’re getting a Bird Box sequel this fall. But wait a bit before you stumble blindly toward Netflix’s homepage — this is a sequel book written by Malerman, who confirmed that his next post-apocalyptic “Bird Box novel,” titled Malorie, will be hitting bookshelves in October. In an interview wi...

How ‘Rogue One’ Changed From Its Original Script, According to Screenwriter Chris Weitz

Plenty of movies get changed on the way from the page to the big screen, but few perhaps as drastically (or infamously) as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The standalone Star Wars film went through dramatic changes in the summer of 2016, which saw significant plot points dropped and whole scenes that appeared in the trailer not show up in the finished film. We don’t know the full extent of the Rogue One changes, but Rogue One co-writer Chris Weitz is here to enlighten us on what the original film...

Watch: Peculiar Alien Invasion Short Film 'Seedling' by Stevie Russell

"Is it a threat to humanity…?" Time for another strange, but nonetheless intriguing, new sci-fi short film. Seedling is a sci-fi short from Ireland written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Stevie Russell, which initially debuted online last month. The concept for this involves a mysterious, unexplainable alien invasion following a huge storm that rages around the world. What are they doing? Why are they there? No one can explain. A young couple experience an incredible encounter which...

‘Terminator 6’ Title is Officially ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

Terminator 6 now has a real title, and it’s one we’ve heard before: Terminator: Dark Fate. Producer James Cameron mentioned this as the working title last month, and it has now been confirmed as official. As far as titles go, it’s not great. Especially since it’s very close to an actual quote from the franchise, which asks the question: why not use that instead? The Wrap has confirmed the Terminator: Dark Fate title, and I can’t say I’m a fan. In Terminator 2: Judgement Day, a tormented Sara...

‘Star Wars Resistance’ Season 1 Was an Exercise in Watching a Slow Burn Achieve an Exhilarating Payoff

(This post contains spoilers for season 1 of Star Wars Resistance.) Like its spiritual animated predecessors, Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars, Star Wars Resistance complements the Star Wars movie trilogies. In this case, it’s the Sequel Trilogy, with a tale of underdogs fighting their battles in other corners of the galaxy. This time, creator Dave Filoni and his team tells this story in a lighter cell-shaded palette than other Lucasfilm Animation productions. Resistance beg...

Transformers Might F**k In the New ‘Transformers’ Movies

The Transformers universe is about to get a whole lot sexier. According to franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, new Transformers movies might introduce a love story between Transformers – because sure, why not? What else is there left to do with this series but have two giant robots cuddling up and getting busy? They could even play some Barry White music from their car radios. And when they kiss…sparks could fly. Literally. This writes itself, people. Over the weekend, legendary produ...

‘Lucy in the Sky’ Trailer: Natalie Portman Goes to Space and Back in Noah Hawley’s Directorial Debut

“You got to see the vast celestial everything and it blew your mind, so now nothing makes sense.” Lucy in the Sky questions what happens when astronauts experience something literally out-of-this world, and return to Earth and all its humdrum activities. The feature film from Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, making his directorial debut, looks as cerebral and trippy as that experience would be, anchored by a tremulous performance by Natalie Portman. See the Lucy in the Sky trailer below...

Showtime’s ‘Halo’ TV Show Brings On a Second Showrunner

The history of a Halo adaptation is rife with stops and starts, but it seems as if Showtime is finally going to bring the popular video game to the small screen – and they’ve hired a second showrunner to do it. Steven Kane (TNT’s The Last Ship) is joining original showrunner Kyle Killen to tackle the premium channel’s “most ambitious series ever,” and you can read on to learn why this show requires two people to lead the charge. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steven Kane (The Last Ship...

‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ TV Spot: Godzilla Puts on an Intimidating Light Show

It doesn’t take much for Godzilla to intimidate people: roaring at the top of his lungs or breathing a huge plume of fire will usually do the trick. But in lieu of those options, there’s another method of intimidation he can utilize, and you can see it in action in this new TV spot for this summer’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Godzilla King of the Monsters TV Spot Audiences probably best know Charles Dance as the pragmatic, cold-hearted patriarch Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones,...

‘Bumblebee 2’ and Future ‘Transformers’ Movies Will Feature “A Little More Bayhem”, According to Their Producer

Last year’s Transformers prequel Bumblebee took a stripped-down approach to its story about an alien robot by eschewing excessive action in favor of an Amblin-style relationship between the eponymous Autobot and Hailee Steinfeld’s human character. But according to the film’s producer, they still haven’t quite landed on the right balance between character moments and action beats. In a new interview, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (who’s produced every Transformers movie thus far) says he plans to switc...

Exclusive: The Original ‘RoboCop’ Poster Was Actually a Painting, and Now You Can Buy It As a Metallic Print

Part man, part machine, all cop. That’s the tagline you’ll find on the original teaser poster for the 1980s favorite RoboCop. The poster is a classic, and any fan can immediately picture RoboCop stepping out of the Detroit Police car, the lights flashing bright red as your imagination runs wild with the prospect of having a robot police officer taking care of justice on the streets. You might not have realized this, but that theatrical poster  for the Paul Verhoeven movie wasn’t simply a touche...

Hans Zimmer is Scoring ‘Dune’, Which Has an Official Synopsis and A Possible New Cast Member

Aside from John Williams, Hans Zimmer is in a rarified group of modern film composers who have celebrity status and widespread recognition based on their names alone. Zimmer is an Oscar winner who’s crafted scores for films like The Lion King, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Inception, and dozens more, and now he’s adding another sci-fi notch to his belt: Zimmer will provide the Dune score for Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming movie adaptation of the classic Frank Herbert novel.

WTF: An ‘Alien vs Predator’ Football Video Game Was Once in Development for SEGA Genesis

Even though the Alien and Predator franchises have both gone in some weird directions over the years, their individual missteps pale in comparison to the insanity of the Alien vs Predator franchise. The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game. That’s right, there was ...

Director Rupert Wyatt Explains Why He Left the Long-Developing ‘Halo’ TV Series

  A TV series adaptation of the hit video game series Halo has been stuck in development for years. Just recently, the series set up at Showtime made some progress by hiring Robin Hood director Otto Bathurst to be at the helm of what will be quite the expensive sci-fi series. But before that, Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt was supposed to executive produce the series and direct a few episodes. Unfortunately, he left the project late last year, and now the filmmaker has prov...

‘The OA Part II’ Early Buzz: Season 2 Doubles Down On the Crazy Ambition That Made Brit Marling’s Netflix Series So Weird and Wonderful

When Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij debuted their passion project The OA on Netflix in 2016, critics raved about the dizzying, dazzling, divisive sci-fi series that followed a young blind woman who returned after a mysterious disappearance with her sight restored. New episodes never debuted, leaving only a legacy of controversy and the memory of a weird modern dance scene in its finale. But now the series has returned, and it is as bonkers as ever. The long-awaited second season of The OA, or ...

‘Captive State’ Co-Writer Erica Beeney Discusses the Influence of History [Interview]

Captive State is a sci-fi thriller that moves like clockwork. Director Rupert Wyatt‘s film always maintains its propulsion without any redundancies or large chunks of tedious exposition. Like the characters trying to start an uprising in a world dominated by aliens, Wyatt and co-writer Erica Beeney always keep their story moving. Compared to other bloated or gigantic alien invasion movies, Captive State is a refreshingly minimalist and stripped down sci-fi movie. Similar to Wyatt’s Rise of the ...

The outlet says this decision “was mulled and actually made months ago, following conversati...

Oscar Isaac Says the Poe/Leia Relationship “Gets Carried Over” Into ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, hot-headed flyboy Poe Dameron learned some tough lessons about how to be a better leader from General Leia Organa and Vice Admiral Holdo. The Poe Leia relationship in particular, as brought to life by actors Oscar Isaac and Carrie Fisher, was a layered and fascinating one, and even though Fisher is no longer with us, Isaac says that relationship “gets carried over” into this year’s Star Wars: Episode 9.

‘Star Wars Resistance’ Art Director Amy Beth Christenson on Building the Colossus [Interview]

From the first episode of Star Wars Resistance , I knew I was falling in love with the Colossus, one of the finest locations in the Star Wars universe. The Colossus is simple in concept: an isolated refueling station on a water planet, a speck from space. Yet it is inhabited by characters, an economy, colorful ships, a culture of racing, and a thriving community of humans, aliens, and droids. With an eye-catching light palette, Resistance offers something different from previous Lucas...

Cool Stuff: Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy Gets Three Comic Book Style Prints by Johnny Dombrowski

But don’t you dare leave out The Cornetto Trilogy. It might be a makeshift trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, linked only by the fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in all of the films directed by Edgar Wright, but thematically, they are an incredible trio of stories that are hilarious, bloody, twisted, and ...

In the sci-fi film Captive State, an extraterrestrial force has occupied the planet. Some resist, while others collaborate. And some wear some very fashionable hoodies.
