Original ‘Predator’ Screenplay is Becoming a Comic Book From Dark Horse

Dark Horse has made a habit of turning unused screenplays into comics. They previously adapted William Gibson’s Alien 3, and recently announced plans for Alien: The Original Screenplay. Now they’re adding an Alien-adjacent title to the line-up: Predator. The five-issue Predator comic will adapt the unused 1987 screenplay for the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. John McTiernan’s Predator could’ve been a different movie, and we’re about to see how different with the publication of the Dark Horse c...

‘Beforeigners’ Trailer: What Happens When Vikings and Citizens from the Stone Age Suddenly Appear in Modern Day Society?

If you find yourself getting bored by the TV shows you’re watching, here’s one with a fascinating twist that seems worth checking out. It’s called Beforeigners, and it’s a show that imagines a scenario in which people from the Viking era, the Stone Age, and the late 1800s suddenly flash into existence in modern day Norway with no explanation. Watch the trailer below. Beforeigners Trailer The six-part series hails from Eilif Skodvin and Anne Bjørnstad, the creators of Lillyhammer, which w...

Ahsoka Tano’s Voice Cameo in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Doesn’t Mean She’s Dead, According to Dave Filoni

Ahsoka Tano is one of the most popular new characters to emerge from the Star Wars animated universe — with one of the coolest character designs. So why hasn’t she made it to the big screen? Well, she sort-of has with a sight unseen cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but in a way that devastated fans of the character. However, Dave Filoni, Ahsoka’s creator and the mastermind behind the acclaimed Star Wars animated series like The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, suggests that Ahsoka’s a...

‘Westworld’ Season 3 Trailer: It’s a Whole New World

The full Westworld season 3 trailer is here, and it looks…big. Not only big, but different. The series is clearly about to go in a much different direction for its third season, taking the characters – and us, the viewers – far beyond the park and into the real world. That brings with it a whole new set of complications for the inhabitants of this show, as you can see below. Westworld Season 3 Trailer Whew, this trailer is a lot. Even though there are plenty of returning characters here...

‘The Mandalorian’ Behind-the-Scenes Video Reveals the Groundbreaking Tech Used to Create the Series

It’s hard to believe, but much of The Mandalorian was, well, not real. Not physically, anyway. The series employed a relatively new technology called StageCraft, which uses a rear-projected LED screen to create a reactive environment that moves with the camera. It’s kind of like green screen, but better – and far more advanced. A new The Mandalorian behind-the-scenes video shows off just how this works in all its impressive glory. The Mandalorian Behind-the-Scenes Video Back in the old ...

The New ‘Planet of the Apes’ Movie Won’t Be a Reboot, So Please Don’t Go Bananas

There’s a new Planet of the Apes movie in the works, but if you’ve read reports stating it’s another remake/reboot, you’ve been misinformed. Maze Runner director Wes Ball has been tasked with tackling the franchise next, and he was also nice enough to jump on Twitter and confirm that whatever he’s making, it’s not a reboot. Ball was tight-lipped as to what the movie might be about, but he swears that the legacy of the previous trilogy will remain intact. Late last year, word broke that a new...

Krispy Kreme Is Releasing ‘Rick and Morty’ Doughnuts, But You’ll Have a Hard Time Getting Them

Krispy Kreme is now selling Rick and Morty doughnuts and a special milkshake inspired by the Adult Swim animated series. They include a Pickle Rick doughnut that thankfully doesn’t taste like pickles, and you can even get your hands on some Strawberry Smiggles without cutting open the gut of a leprechaun. However, there’s an unfortunate catch that might keep you from enjoying the delicious taste of Rick and Morty doughnuts. Here are all the Rick and Morty doughnuts and the special milkshake b...

New ‘Star Wars’ Comic Reveals Luke Skywalker Had a Secret Yellow Lightsaber

Audiences got a first glimpse of the rare yellow lightsaber on the big screen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, when Rey revealed her own personal lightsaber at the end of the film, emitting a golden-yellow hue. It was a stark contrast to the blue and green lightsabers that Jedi Masters had wielded in the past, or the red lightsabers of the Sith. But a new Star Wars comic has revealed that this isn’t the first time a major Jedi Master has wielded a yellow lightsaber. Luke Skywalker, who unti...

Norway Becomes a Hub for Time-Displaced Refugees in HBO's Beforeigners Trailer

Science fiction and fantasy are often used as mirrors to reflect our own modern societal problems, one of the biggest being the ongoing refugee crisis. Amazon Prime’s Carnival Row explores the theme using fairies and mythical creatures. District 9 was about aliens who’d found themselves stuck on Earth. Now, HBO has…Read more...

Original 1933 ‘King Kong’ Returning to Theaters for the First Time in Nearly 65 Years

The King Kong that most audiences are familiar with today is probably Peter Jackson’s remake from 2005. But the original King Kong from 1933 is a much bigger milestone in cinematic history, bringing a larger than life story to the big screen with old school movie tricks and special effects. If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing the classic film directed and produced by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, there’s no better way to see it than on the big screen. Thankfully, Fathom Even...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Season 7 Clip: Captain Rex Meets Clone Force 99

The seventh and final season premiere of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars arrives this Friday, and Disney+ is kicking things off with a bang by introducing a skilled and deadly new group of Clone Troopers called The Bad Batch. The “defective” experimental squad has some mutations that make them stand out from the rest of the troopers, and Captain Rex is a little leery about their tactics when he meets them in a newly released Clone Wars season 7 clip.

‘Devs’ Review: Alex Garland’s Melancholy Sci-Fi Series Will Blow Your Mind (and Might Trigger an Existential Crisis or Two)

When approaching Devs, there’s one rule worth keeping in mind: Pay attention. That may seem like a no-brainer, but more often than not these days, TV viewers tend to only half-watch shows – one eye on the TV, the other on the phone for some live-tweeting. You can certainly try to watch Devs this way, but if you, do be warned: You’ll get lost in the woods, wandering around aimlessly in a futile search for familiar landmarks that never present themselves. Devs is dense – a layered, near-hypnotic ...

‘Doctor Who’ Tells a “Haunting” Tale With a Chilling Night With Frankenstein and Frankenstein’s Author

It turns out lightning can strike twice with Doctor Who, which makes an electric return to form with “The Haunting of Villa Diodati.” Last week saw Season 12’s hot streak of episodes come to an end, but Doctor Who resuscitated its high-quality run with a perfect old-fashioned ghost story that pitted Frankenstein’s author against a modern Prometheus of Doctor Who‘s own making. Doctor Who has long delighted in doing on-the-nose tributes to famous literary figures, which range from the good (Charl...

Cool Stuff: Andy Fairhurst’s ‘Back to the Future’ Trilogy Print Set Goes Back in Time

There are countless art prints for Back to the Future out there in the world, many of them for the original movie that introduced us to Marty McFly, Doc Brown and the time traveling DeLorean. But as a fan of the  whole trilogy from director Robert Zemeckis, what I really like is when an artist creates a set of posters that represents the entire franchise with unifying imagery. Artist Andy Fairhurst has teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery for a new Back to the Future trilogy print set that satisfi...

Now they’re all back to take a look back at a couple projects from Weta Digital’s past.

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Reboot Might Be Set In Same Universe as Last ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Reboot

There’s a new Battlestar Galactica reboot in the works, and it might end up being more familiar than expected. Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail is developing the new Battlestar for the upcoming NBC streaming service Peacock, and according to Ronald D. Moore, who created the previous Battlestar reboot, Esmail’s series might be set in the same universe as Moore’s. And that makes a certain sense based on how Moore’s show ended. Spoilers for the 2004-2009 Battlestar Galactica reboot follow.  The con...

Harrison Ford Has No Idea What a Force Ghost is and He Could Not Care Less

Harrison Ford is famous for not getting caught up in the minutiae of the Star Wars universe. When it comes to playing Han Solo, he’s there to deliver his lines to the best of his ability, but don’t expect him to know what a moof milker is or anything like that. Just in case you needed some more evidence as to how little Harrison Ford cares about anything that doesn’t involve Han Solo, a new interview drives the point home. During the press rounds for the upcoming movie Call of the Wild, star...

But the folks at How It Should Have Ended did their best to get a little bit more specific with how things should have went down.
