In a time when the casts of cult TV shows and beloved movies are getting together virtually left and right, there is still only one Zoom reunion to rule them all and in the darkness bind them — or at least, provide us a small reprieve as the real world gets more distressing by the minute. Josh Gad has been uniting casts of Back to the Future, Splash, and The Goonies, with his Reunited Apart web series, but his latest one is the most epic reunion yet.

'Mortal Engines' Grinds Down the Post-apocalyptic Genre

None How could such a marvelous premise go so horribly wrong? That's the question you'll be asking while watching dystopian steam-punk film, Mortal Engines. Luckily, you will soon pass into a peaceful slumber and dream about something more interesting, like tax law or dripping water faucets. Visual effects guru Christian Rivers tries his luck at directing and, unfortunately, all of his luck is bad. This dystopian future where massive, mobile cities consume smaller cities for resources is a c...

‘Mortal Engines’ Trailer: Peter Jackson Presents a New Adventure

There was a period there where YA movie adaptations were abundant – and the majority of them were disappointing. The trend has died down a bit, but it isn’t gone completely. Case in point: Mortal Engines is the latest film to bring a YA series to life. The movie is set in a post-apocalyptic world where “entire cities have been mounted on wheels and motorized, and prey on one another.” That sounds pretty darn cool. And it looks cool, too.

The world Reeve had crafted on paper was spellbinding. It was a fascinating foundation upon which all kinds of stories could be told and all kinds of characters could be co...
