John Boyega Teases “Visually Crazy” Moment in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi. But all of that apparently pales in comparison to the “visually crazy” moment Boyega is teasing in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9.

Drew Struzan’s ‘Blade Runner’ Poster Will Be On Sale This Week

Drew Struzan is arguably one of the most influential pop artists of all time, responsible for creating the iconic movie posters for films like the Star Wars saga, the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones saga, The Thing, and many more. He also created a poster for Ridley Scott‘s 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, and since we’re now living in 2019 – the year Blade Runner takes place – it seems appropriate that Struzan’s poster would be back in the spotlight. Bottleneck Gallery is sellin...

Announcement Teaser for Jason Reitman's Secret 'Ghostbusters' Film

Surprise! Sony Pictures has revealed that filmmaker Jason Reitman has been secretly working on a brand new Ghostbusters movie, officially set for release in the summer of 2020. To go along with the reveal of this news, they've released a very short teaser trailer that Reitman himself shot.

Jason is the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original two Ghostbusters movies back in 1984 and 1989. J...

Charlotte Rampling is the Latest Addition to Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

Denis Villeneuve continues to add respected and talented actors to his ever-growing Dune cast. The latest: arthouse cinema royalty Charlotte Rampling. Rampling will play Reverend Mother Mohiam in the sci-fi epic that also stars Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista and Stellan Skarsgard. Adapted from the massive novel by Frank Herbert, Villeneuve’s Dune is likely to be a huge production, and follows in the footsteps of David Lynch’s much-maligned attempt to adapt the novel in 1984....

‘High Life’ Trailer: Oblivion Awaits Robert Pattinson in Space

Claire Denis‘ High Life generated a lot of buzz at TIFF in 2018, primarily due to how weird it was.

Denis, making her English language debut, directs Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche and more in a sci-fi story about a space ship heading towards a black hole. But what does it all mean? You’ll have to figure that out for yourself. For now, watch the High Life trailer below. High Li...

Watch: 360° Short Film 'Merger' About the Future Run by Algorithms

"Managing your attention effectively is key. The aim is to achieve a laser focus…" Now this is something different. Merger is a 360-degree sci-fi short film (meaning you can interact / move the camera as it plays) made by by London-based designer and architect Keiichi Matsuda, who was also behind the trippy short film Hyper-Reality. "Set against the backdrop of AI-run corporations, a tele-operator finds herself caught between virtual and physical reality, human and machine. As she fights for...

If you’re looking for someone to direct a new Ghostbusters movie, who ya gonna call?

Adam Driver Was Told Where ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Would End Up Before Filming ‘The Force Awakens’

Adam Driver has been keeping a Star Wars secret for several years, and it’s not something mundane like Kylo Ren getting his helmet back in Star Wars: Episode 9. In a new interview, Driver says he’s known for a long time “where it was all going,” so read on as we narrow down the possibilities of what he’s talking about. Speaking with Deadline, Driver compared the experience of working on the HBO series Girls to working on the Star Wars movies, dropping one particularly interesting bit of infor...

‘Men in Black International’ Features More Alien Agents Putting on the Suit

Since Men in Black is concerned with protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe, it doesn’t seem like the kind of organization that would trust extra-terrestrials enough to employ them as agents (although we did see them doing office work and such). When you look back at the Men in Black franchise, there don’t appear to be any aliens suited up as full-fledged agents. But that will change with Men in Black International. Entertainment Weekly has debuted some new photos showing off some...

Michelle Yeoh ‘Star Trek’ Spin-Off Moving Ahead at CBS All Access

Michelle Yeoh is the captain now — kind of. The Crazy Rich Asians actress had a recurring role on CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery season 1, and now she’ll be taking the helm in her own Star Trek spin-off. But the untitled Michelle Yeoh Star Trek spin-off won’t center around her first character, the noble Captain Philippa Georgiou. Instead, Yeoh will get to stretch her vamping skills as Georgiou’s evil doppelganger who was introduced during a journey to the Mirror Universe. Deadline repo...

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Early Buzz: People Love Robert Rodriguez’s Weird-Looking Sci-Fi Epic

This just in: Alita: Battle Angel is actually…good? That’s what early reactions are saying, at least. The trailers for the James Cameron-produced, Robert Rodriguez-directed sci-fi epic have looked a bit…awkward. But the film recently screened for a handful of people, and the reaction is overwhelmingly positive, with some calling the movie “mind-blowing” and a “sci-fi genre landmark.” See the Alita: Battle Angel early buzz below. I’ll be honest: based on the trailers, I think Alita: Battle An...

‘Replicas’ Review: An Early Frontrunner For the Most Bizarre Bad Movie of 2019

In case you were curious, Replicas is a Christmas movie. You may find that fact, or the fact that multiple scenes in this sci-fi thriller reference the holiday season or literally take place at a Christmas tree-shopping site in Puerto Rico, superfluous or inexplicable. Perhaps I’ve buried the lede, because you see, Replicas itself is quite inexplicable. Here, we have the first wide-release contender of 2019 for the title of Most Utterly Bizarre Film of the Year. There’s no sane metric un...

Ursula K. Le Guin: Old Soul, New Worlds

None "Hard times are coming," author Ursula K. Le Guin said in her fiery 2014 speech accepting the National Book Foundation award. Her tone was somehow somber, yet also chipper, as though she had already acknowledged the worst and now was girding for battle. She was fixing her bayonet in bright spirits and about to go over the top. She went on about what will be needed in the years to come: … we'll be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our...

Denis Villeneuve Reunites With ‘Arrival’ and ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Editor Joe Walker for ‘Dune’

Denis Villeneuve has tapped his frequent collaborator Joe Walker as the Dune editor. This marks the French-Canadian director’s fourth collaboration with Walker in a row, after they’ve worked together on Sicario, Arrival, and Blade Runner 2049. Dune has long been a passion project for Villeneuve, who co-wrote the script with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.

‘Weird City’ Trailer: Jordan Peele’s YouTube Sci-Fi Show Brings the Funny to a Futuristic Dystopia

Jordan Peele may be horror’s new favorite son, but the ever-busy writer/producer/director is finding ways to acknowledge his comedy roots. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the funny to futuristic dystopias. Set in a society where classes are starkly divided by the haves and have-nots, labeled in this case as “Above the Line” and “Below the Line,” Weird City stars LeVar Burton as a...

New ‘Men in Black International’ Details Promise New Aliens and Locales, Big Action and Laughs

The end of 2018 came with a promising glimpse of the upcoming Men in Black International, a half-sequel, half-reboot of the comic book franchise that started over 21 years ago. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones made the series memorable, even if the sequels never quite measured up to the original. Now it’s Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson throwing on the suits and shades, and with them will be coming some new aliens and locales mixed with the action and comedy fans have come to expect.

‘Bios’ Cast Adds Caleb Landry Jones as Tom Hanks’ Robot Dog Sitter

Caleb Landry Jones, an actor who seems to excel at playing creepy weirdos, has joined the cast of Bios to play a much more likable character. The Amblin film stars Tom Hanks as the last man on earth. Jones will play (via motion capture) a robot Hanks builds to watch over his dog. That almost sounds like a joke, but it’s part of the real plot, and I am here for it. Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik is helming the film. I’m ready for Caleb Landry Jones to start playing non-creepy peopl...

‘IO’ Trailer: Anthony Mackie and Margaret Qualley Try to Escape a Toxic Earth

The latest post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie from Netflix shows a bleak vision of Earth that has been abandoned by humanity — except for two survivors. Anthony Mackie (The Hate U Give) and Margaret Qualley (Death Note) star in IO as the two final humans left on Earth after the rest of world’s population has evacuated to a colony on one of Jupiter’s moons, Io. But this isn’t some quirky Last Man on Earth situation: the two must race against time to catch one of the final shuttles leaving the desolat...

There’s Yet Another ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Secret Ending

Another week, another Black Mirror: Bandersnatch “secret ending” revealed. The Black Mirror choose-your-own-adventure movie has so many endings that viewers need a flowchart to navigate it, but now, we may need a bigger flowchart. While last week we learned that there was a Black Mirror secret ending that follows Stefan (Fionn Whitehead) as he pulls out his finished “Bandersnatch” game and experiences some unpleasant noises, a new ending has been unveiled by one of Netflix’s social media accoun...

The biggest and perhaps most disappointing story is that Star Trek 4 has been shelved due to those contract disputes with Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth.

Set in the "near future" the story follows a young scientist named Sam, one of the last survivors on a post-cataclysmic Earth, who is dedicated to finding a way for humans to adapt and survive on this planet, rather than abandon their world.

‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Crew Gift Teases a Return to a Familiar Planet and Another Mystery

We’re over a week into 2019, and we still don’t have a teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode 9. Word on the street is that might change sooner than later, but at this point, who knows when director J.J. Abrams wants to start opening the mystery box to let some secrets out. In the meantime, it looks like a gift given to crew members may have revealed a new detail about one of the locations featured in Star Wars Episode 9.

"You pick your facades, yet?" This isn't so much science fiction, more science reality, because we're closer than ever to this technology actually existing. But it's still fun to see them play with this technology concept in a short film anyway. Face Swap is a fun short film made by filmmakers David Gidali & Einat Tubi, inspired by (and utilizing) the "deepfakes" AI technology from the internet. It's the same tech that Jordan Peele use to create his infamous Obama speech. A couple decides to...
