‘Back to the Future’ is Crossing Over With ‘Transformers’ With a New Toy and Comic Miniseries

Just last year, Transformers crossed over with Ghostbusters in the form of a comic book miniseries from IDW. The mash-up of robots and paranormal exterminators also resulted in a new Transformers toy that turned the Ecto-1 into an Aubobot. Now another one of cinema’s most famous vehicles will be getting the same treatment as Back to the Future is getting a Transformers crossover comic miniseries that will see the DeLorean time machine turned into an Autobot too. And yes, of course there’s a toy...

‘Fallout’ TV Series Coming to Amazon From ‘Westworld’ Creators

War. War never changes. But the television landscape sure does, because the thought of a show based on the Fallout video game series seemed downright impossible when the franchise debuted in 1997. But here we are: it’s 2020 and Amazon is bringing the post-apocalyptic science fiction story to the small screen, with Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy heading up the project. The news was initially teased with a short teaser on Amazon Studios’ official Twitter feed. Utilizing the gam...

Nice Guy Rian Johnson Has Nice Things to Say About the ‘Star Wars’ Prequels

While I don’t know Rian Johnson personally, I think I’m safe in assuming he’s a nice guy. He would have to be – after The Last Jedi came out, Johnson’s Twitter account was bombarded with angry people bemoaning how different his Star Wars movie was. And rather than telling everyone to go pound sand – which is probably what I would’ve done – Johnson has remained polite and even respectful about the entire thing (probably because he knows deep down that he made one of the best Star Wars movies eve...

‘Room 104’ Season 4 Trailer: Dave Bautista and Jillian Bell Check in for the Final Season of This Wild Anthology Stories

HBO and the Duplass Brothers have been delivering some wild, trippy, hilarious, scary, and weird stories in the late night half-hour anthology series Room 104.

‘Lost’ Was Only Supposed to Last Three Seasons, and Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse Almost Left as Showrunners

Even though the hit ABC mystery drama Lost came to an end ten years ago, we’re still slightly obsessed with the show here at /Film. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse became superstars during the show’s run, and behind the scenes stories were devoured by fans almost as rabidly as new episodes of the show itself. But in a new interview, Lindelof revealed some details about the making of Lost that I’d never heard before: namely, that the show was originally pitched as a three-season seri...

"Someone is trying to sabotage the mission." Lionsgate has released a trailer for an epic sci-fi thriller titled G-Loc, one of the latest films from genre filmmaker Tom Paton. The title G-Loc is a reference to an actual aerospace physiology term: "G-force induced Loss of Consciousness - a loss of consciousness occurring from excessive and sustained g-forces."

Jason Sudeikis Kinda Forgot About Punching Baby Yoda in ‘The Mandalorian’

In the first season finale of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian on Disney+, the asset officially referred to as “The Child” and lovingly referred to as Baby Yoda was kidnapped by Imperial Scout Troopers. The little guy is being held in a satchel, and he keeps wiggling around inside of it, trying to get out. So one of the Scout Troopers just punches the bag, and fans were not having it. One of the Scout Troopers was portrayed by Jason Sudeikis, and he was surprised to find himself trending on...

‘Ghostbusters’ Returning to Theaters and Drive-Ins with a Special Message for Fans in July

The reopening of movie theaters next month is still somewhat of an uncertainty, especially with Christopher Nolan’s Tenet recently being pushed back another two weeks and Disney considering yet another delay for their live-action adaptation of Mulan. But that’s not stopping Sony Pictures from bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen in July, not only for theaters open in areas that have mostly overcome the spread of COVID-19, but for the safer, thriving drive-ins around the United States. ...

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Story “Feeds Into the Possibility” of More Sequels, According to Dan Aykroyd

When the Ghostbusters cast and filmmakers reunited on Josh Gad’s web series Reunited Apart, there was a little confusion about something Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman said during their chat. Many thought the filmmaker was revealing another sequel was already in development, but it was just an out of context quote that got misconstrued. However, Ghostbusters is still a franchise, and obviously Sony Pictures would like to see Afterlife reinvigorate the brand. That’s why we’re not...

‘Avatar 2’ Performance Capture Photo Teases an Underwater Creature of Pandora

You may have noticed that Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau has been regularly posting set photos from director James Cameron‘s follow-up movies.

But today, Landau has published an Avatar 2 performance capture photo of one of the actors totally submerged underwater, and it finally provides a significant hint at what we’ll see when (if?) ...

A New Sci-Fi Movie Will Star an Artificially Intelligent Robot Named Erica, Programmed in Method Acting

A lot of people are wondering how safe it will be for Hollywood to get back to work in the age of the coronavirus, especially since we’re still very much in the first wave and the number of cases in the United States has been rising. An upcoming sci-fi production will make things slightly safer for the cast and crew, because one of the lead roles will be taken by a robot named Erica, who has been created to simulate method acting through artificial intelligence. No, this isn’t a joke. The Hol...

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 4 Teaser: Change Never Comes Easy

“Change never comes easy,” June muses in The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 teaser, which feels like a bit of an understatement for the bleak, slow-moving dystopian Hulu series based on the novel by Margaret Atwood. But the plodding drama series promises the long-awaited revolution against the totalitarian regime of Gilead, though we will still have to wait until next year to see it play out.

Mark Hamill Confirms Extra Roles in All ‘Star Wars’ Movies Except the Prequels

Mark Hamill is best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, but he’s also a renowned voice actor. That’s why Hamill also lent his voice to some extra characters in the galaxy far, far away, but it turns out there’s even more that Mark Hamill did as a voice actor than previously known.
