POTD: Imagine a Lando Calrissian ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy with Amazing Retro Posters By Peter Stults

Since Solo: A Star Wars Story ended up being a box office disappointment, it’s not likely that we’re going to get a sequel, and that’s coming from the film’s co-writer Jon Kasdan. But if the story arc that began in the spin-off were to continue, it would be awesome if it ended up making Lando Calrissian even more prominent. Apparently artist Peter Stults thought the same thing, which is why he used his quarantine time to make a trio of posters for a film series called The Calrissian Chronicles....

Cool Stuff: S.H. Figuarts Unveils One of the Best 1989 ‘Batman’ Action Figures Ever

Even though there have been countless Batman action figures released over the years, there haven’t been a lot of film-accurate action figures inspired by Tim Burton‘s big screen adaptation from 1989. In fact, with the exception of figures from NECA and Hot Toys, the Michael Keaton version of The Dark Knight has largely been ignored, especially when it comes to smaller scale figures. But that’s about to change thanks to the Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts version of Batman, coming this fall. S...

‘Cinelinx’ Offering Free Print-and-Play Version of the Movie-Connecting Card Game

Have you heard of the movie-connection card game Cinelinx? We featured it back in 2014 when it was just trying to get funding through Kickstarter, but it’s ben a full fledged card game complete with expansion packs for years.

Now THIS Is Podracing: ‘Star Wars: Episode I Racer’ Coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch

Even though it’s easy to disregard Star Wars: The Phantom Menace when it comes to the legacy of the sci-fi saga, you can’t deny that the Boonta Eve podrace is one of the most exhilarating and entertaining sequences in the entire franchise. Even more thrilling is the old school racing video game inspired by it, Star Wars Episode I Racer. The video game was released for Nintendo 64 and Microsoft Windows in 1999, and soon it will make a comeback by getting re-released on both PlayStation and Ninte...

Cool Stuff: ‘The Mandalorian’ Prints from Dave Perillo and Christian Waggoner Have Baby Yoda and Many Mandos

It’s a shame we won’t have any new episodes of The Mandalorian to watch until later this year, especially since the series will bring Ahsoka Tano into the live-action Star Wars universe in the second season. But while we wait for the return of the series on Disney+, artists Dave Perillo and Christian Waggoner have unveiled new The Mandalorian posters going on sale today.

‘Strange Brew’ and ‘SCTV’ Hosers Bob & Doug McKenzie Immortalized As Statues in Edmonton, Canada

Canada is known for giving us maple syrup and Ryan Reynolds, not to mention their undying love for hockey and inexplicably endless politeness. But when I think of Canada, there are two lovable hosers that come to mind, and that’s beer-chugging, hockey-loving brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie, played by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis in both the Canadian sketch comedy series SCTV (or Second City Television) and the cult classic comedy feature film Strange Brew. Now the knuckleheads from the Great Whi...

Mondo Has Released a Vinyl Version of the ‘Sorry to Bother You’ Soundtrack

Boots Riley – the director of 2018’s sharp, funny, indie hit Sorry to Bother You – also serves as the frontman for a radical band called The Coup, a simmering blend of musical styles and revolutionary politics. That group has been releasing albums since the early 1990s, and they also provided the soundtrack for Riley’s movie. (Well, technically, they provided two soundtracks, but we’ll get to that in a minute.) Now the film’s soundtrack has been released on vinyl thanks to Mondo and Interscope ...

With all the chaos happening in the world right now, we need heroes.

Cool Stuff: ‘Aliens’ Power Loader Statue Will Keep Xenomorphs Away from Your Collectibles

“Get away from her, you bitch!” That famous line from Aliens is something we might be saying a lot more if people don’t stick with the plan to continue social distancing in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus in the United States. But for now, we’ll just hope for the best and distract ourselves with a look at a new collectible inspired by the James Cameron-directed sci-fi sequel to Ridley Scott’s horror sci-fi classic Alien.

Cool Stuff: ‘Animal House’ and ‘Stripes’ Funko POPs Celebrate Slobs Beating the Snobs

Since the characters of Caddyshack have already been given the Funko POPs treatment, it’s time for the other movies in the “slobs vs snobs” subgenre of comedies to get their due. Thankfully, Funko will keep them coming with new collectible vinyl figures dedicated to the military comedy Stripes directed by and starring the late Harold Ramis, as well as the John Landis-directed fraternity comedy that the Ghostbusters star penned, National Lampoon’s Animal House.

Cool Stuff: ‘The Mighty Ducks’ Funko POPs Will Get You Addicted to Quack

What I love most about the ever-growing line of Funko POPs arriving pretty much every single month is that they’re willing to give us collectible figures from movies and TV shows that would otherwise never get action figures. Step Brothers, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Tommy Boy, Big, Billy Madison, The Sandlot, The Big Lebowski, The Shining and more have been given the Funko POP treatment, and now one of Disney’s most beloved sports franchises will join them.

‘Quests of Yore’ from Pixar’s ‘Onward’ is Becoming a Real Role-Playing Game

In Pixar’s movie Onward, there’s a role-playing game called Quests of Yore, featuring fantasy creatures, spells, artifacts, locations and more. It’s a source of obsession for the elder elf brother Barley (Chris Pratt), and he shows his younger brother Ian (Tom Holland) how everything in the book is actually inspired by the real magical history of their world that society has mostly forgotten in favor of modern technology. Now Quests of Yore will become a real role-playing game to play with your...

There have been a handful of Back to the Future Funko POPs released over the years, but most of them have been tied to the original movie from 1985.

Blade Runner will be making a surprising comeback in video game form thanks to Nightdive Studios, the company known for restoring classic video game favorites like System Shock and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter.

In case you didn’t realize, this year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Regarded as one of the best sequels of all time, it’s largely considered to be the best film in the entire saga.

The forthcoming The Rise of Skywalker comic will not only adapt J.J. Abrams‘ film, but it will include deleted and extended scenes. Time to restart the “what was Finn going to say to Rey?” debates.
