The Cosmic Man! (1959)

I’ll tell you this: I try not to collect a lot of movie posters anymore. My new goals are certain posters that aren’t in English. But the fact The Cosmic Man has this little card on it makes me want one for my very own. And that dude there looks like Alec Guinness subjected to x-rays. Weird. Anyway, sometimes you just really want some sort of Christ-like story played out with an extra terrestrial. Well, here’s just the thing. The Cosmic Man is here to appeal to us and get us to evolve i...

‘Avatar 2’ Underwater Scenes Had Sigourney Weaver and the Cast Holding Their Breath Over Six Minutes at a Time

Director James Cameron recently revealed that production on Avatar 2 is 100% complete in both live-action and motion capture filming, and Avatar 3 wasn’t too far behind.

The Gorge! It’s a new movie from Zach Dean, writer of a movie no one has even seen yet – The Tomorrow War, and while there is next to no info about this latest from Dean, I am legally obligated to write about it.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 3 Post-Production Was Done from Home

Last week, word broke that Star Trek: Discovery had already been renewed for season 4, and that the new season would start production next month. This raises one big question: how? As we all know, the coronavirus – which is still very much around, with cases starting to spike again in the United States – has made production on TV and movies somewhat tricky right now. But Discovery has an ace up their sleeve: home-based post-production. At least, that’s what was used to finish the recently-premi...

New ‘Avatar 2’ Image Reveals Edie Falco’s New Character, Who Certainly Sounds Like a Villain

The /Film staff has a bit of a running joke when it comes to Avatar 2 news: is the publicity team going out their way to release only the most boring images imaginable? But that’s the problem you face when the world of a film is largely digital and won’t be ready for primetime until long after the cameras have finished rolling. The other problem is that director James Cameron will hunt us down and hurt us if we joke too much. Naturally, this means just about every glimpse of the upcoming sequel...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 4 Happening at CBS All Access, Filming Starts Next Month

Well, the decision probably wasn’t just made, because it turns out production is set to start next month. In all likelihood, CBS All Access made the decision months ago, but waited to announce now because Star Trek: Discovery season 3 just premiered.

Anya Taylor-Joy’s Furiosa Will Be “Different” From Charlize Theron’s Take

When Charlize Theron first appeared onscreen in Max Max: Fury Road, wielding a shaved head and righteous fury, she became the unquestionable breakout star, a new cinematic icon for the ages. It was such an impactful performance that Furiosa star Anya Taylor-Joy “can’t even think about trying to step into her shoes,” the actress said of her upcoming leading role in the Fury Road prequel. So instead of trying to fill those shoes, Taylor-Joy will try something “different” from Theron’s performance...
