Avatar 2: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)It feels deeply hubristic to write an article about "Avatar 2" when the sequel has already been delayed a comical number of times. But to borrow a Na'vi phrase from the first film, "Fìketuwongìl ke nayume ke'ut." (Everyone reading this is surely fluent in Na'vi, but just in case there are a few stragglers out there who haven't le...

Why 1994's Unreleased Fantastic Four Movie Was Such A Disaster — By Design

Long before Marvel Studios conquered the world with its unique blend of big-budget spectacle and comic book fidelity ... before 2000's "X-Men" and 2002's "Spider-Man" proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Marvel universe was a viable form of movie IP ... heck, even before Wesley Snipes ice-skated uphill with the "Blade" movies, there was Roger Corman's infamous 1994 film "The Fantastic Four." Didn't see it? There's a reason for that.Hollywood is a sharky town. Always has been. On almost any...

Sci-Fi Box Office Bombs That Deserve A Second Chance

As we emerge from the other side of the pandemic, a bunch of big budget science-fiction franchises are about to return to the big screen: Denis Villeneuve's adaption of "Dune," Lana Wachowski's "Matrix 4," James Cameron's "Avatar 2: The Klumps," and Patty Jenkins' contribution to the eternal Star Wars juggernaut, "Rogue Squadron."But a big license and major studio backing is no guarantee of success. "Solo" famously underperformed, as did David Lynch's "Dune" long before it. However, box office r...

How To Watch The Alien Movies In Order

Ridley Scott's Xenomorph started its hunt with "Alien" in 1979, and though there have been some pauses between installments, we inevitably return to its bleak, Geiger-designed future again and again. With a new Alien series exploring amoral mega-corporation Weyland-Yutani on the way, it's worth studying how we got here. The timeline of the Alien franchise can be hard to follow, as Ridley Scott delved into the creation of the Xenomorphs decades after making the first movie. However, there are a f...

The 12 Best Film Composers Of All Time

There's more to a film score than an opening theme, though many of the more recognizable composers got to where they are by writing the theme to a beloved franchise. Film scores set the mood. They create an environment. As far as post-production goes, music is as important as editing when it comes to tone and pacing. Sometime you don't even notice the score in the background of a film, and that's powerful too. There's a reason that a lot of people like listening to film scores while working. It'...

14 Remakes That Are Better Than The Original

In this day and age, it's amazingly easy to be a cynic. It could be argued that remakes are lazy cash-ins, that they're a sign of the lack of original ideas left in cinema, or that they exist only to appease that sizable portion of the cinema-going audience that needs to see films in their native tongue, without subtitles. That's true in a great many cases (I'm looking at you, "Jacob's Ladder," "Quarantine," and "The Fog"), and yet there are times when a remake is a golden opportunity to do some...

True Lies TV Series Casts Someone Who Is Not Arnold Schwarzenegger In The Lead Role

If you watched Fox's "Lethal Weapon" TV series and thought, "I would like to see another '80s or '90s action movie rebooted on network television with a different star," then you are in luck. A new version of James Cameron's 1994 film, "True Lies," has been ordered to pilot at CBS. Cameron will serve as executive producer, but one person who won't be involved is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who starred in the original blockbuster with Jamie Lee Curtis.Variety reports that Steve Howey ("Shameless," "Re...

Swarming the Arcades: Where the Alien Franchise Ruled

The Alien franchise is arguably one of the most popular series in cinema history and the movies have helped permanently shape the science fiction and horror genres across the years. Like all good mammoth IPs, there were books, toys, comics, and video games that followed, but translating the elements that made the films great to other mediums wasn’t the simplest of tasks. The first release, Alien (1979), made one creature seem terrifying, trapped in a tin can floating through space where no one c...

Alphabet X’s exosuit

Last week, Kathryn Zealand shared some insight on the eve of Women’s Equality Day. The post highlighted an issue that’s been apparent to everyone in and around the robotics industry: there’s a massive gender gap. It’s something we try to be mindful of, particularly when programming events like TC Sessions: Robotics. Zealand cites some pretty staggering figures in the piece. According to the stats, around 9% of robotics engineers are female. That’s bad. That’s, like, bad even by the standards of ...

Will There Be A Sequel To Alien: Covenant? Here's What We Know

(Welcome to Will There Be a Sequel?, a series where we answer that question and explore what comes next.)In 2012, Ridley Scott returned to the world of "Alien" with the prequel movie "Prometheus." In 2017, the story continued with "Alien: Covenant." Scott said in multiple interviews that he planned to keep the story going. But so far, that hasn't happened. In the time since Scott started this new prequel series, 20th Century Fox, owners of "Alien," was engulfed by Disney. That means the acid-ble...

The 20 Best '80s Horror Movies Ranked

The '80s were a boom time for horror. Two formats of video recorder (VHS and Betamax) duked it out, with VHS eventually winning out due to being the cheaper format to license. The proliferation of this technology in the home meant that films had a market outside cinemas for the first time, and rental stores cropped up worldwide. Direct-to-video became a valid way to release films, and a lot of people wanted to cash in on the growing horror craze. In addition, because it was now possible to recor...

42 of the Most Mind-Blowing Special Effects Sequences in Movie History

Admittedly, we’ve gotten a little jaded. Digital effects are so omnipresent in our blockbusters that we’ve come to expect the impossible from movies.

Marvel's Werewolf By Night Could Be Coming To Disney+ In New Special

Marvel Studios is reportedly about to "werewolf and go wild," as the Joker once said on late-night TV. We'd heard rumors about an adaptation of Marvel's "Werewolf by Night" comic that could be coming to the Disney+ streaming service, and now it sounds like Marvel is potentially moving forward with that project in the form of a Halloween Special. The Wrap reports that Marvel "is actively searching for a Latino actor to lead the cast of an as-yet-untitled Halloween Special that will air on Disney+...

Spider-Man Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

In the '90s, Spider-Man was caught in a web of litigation that made it seem like he'd never get his own, proper film. Two decades earlier, select episodes of "The Amazing Spider-Man" TV series enjoyed a theatrical release outside the U.S. Around the same time, a short film based on Toei's television adaptation, "Spider-Man," played in Japanese theaters. However, these were glorified TV movies. Fans hoping for a real Spider-Man film could only fantasize about the James Cameron blockbuster that ne...

The 12 Best Space Movies You Can Watch On Netflix Right Now

So, where better to start your space travel movie marathon than Netflix, especially since the streaming giant has made our solar system -- and the stars beyond -- the basis of several of its original features? Wh...

‘Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan’ Trailer: Netflix Docuseries Focuses On a First-of-its-Kind Legal Defense

In the 1970s, a young man named Billy Milligan was arrested in connection with a series of rapes at Ohio State University. Milligan claimed to have no memory of committing any crimes, and a whole group of psychiatrists would eventually diagnose him with having up to 24 different personalities. But what if the doctors got it wrong? What if Milligan was fully aware of his crimes and manipulating everyone around him? That’s the subject of the new Netflix docuseries Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of...

‘The Terminator’ Producer Isn’t Prepared to Admit Defeat Just Yet

Rarely has “I’ll be back” sounded more like a threat. Everyone can agree that the first two Terminator movies are absolute classics, but the flip side of the coin is that those two movies have also spawned an entire franchise of disappointing and continuity-defying sequels. The latter is less of an issue, admittedly, but we still have to reckon with the former. The latest attempt, Terminator: Dark Fate, more or less does what’s asked of it in terms of soft-rebooting the franchise, but audiences...
