Several Eternals Costumes Were Entirely CGI

Welcome to your (probably daily) reminder that technology is absolutely wild and the future is here (whether you like it or not). In the year of our lord 2021, we're used to seeing a good smattering of CGI when it comes to those big, bombastic superhero and action movies. Hell, CGI is so commonplace now that it becomes actual news when films use practical effects instead. However, it seems like Chloé Zhao's "Eternals" really upped the ante when it comes to creatively using CGI. These aren't just...

The Best Characters In Eternals Ranked

The primary tenet of Blake Snyder's "Save the Cat," a book about writing successful movies, is "give me the same thing ... only different." Stan Lee, co-creator of many of Marvel's most popular characters, also believed this implicitly. He claimed that the secret to Marvel's success was its "illusion of change," the feeling that events were altering a comic book character irrevocably, but actually weren't. Now, Marvel makes the most successful and impactful Hollywood blockbusters, and "the same ...

Easter Eggs In Eternals You Might Have Missed

Watch out! Big spoilers for "Eternals" ahead.Easter eggs are the part of Easter most children remember. After all, it's fun to hunt for brightly-colored treasures. Cinematic Easter eggs function largely the same way. They're not essential to the plot, but they are treats for die-hard fans, who love to hunt for them while viewing and often begin discussing them as soon as the movie ends. But Easter eggs didn't begin as a game. As academic and historian Carole Levin tells Time, they were first eat...

Angelina Jolie Could Play Thena Again, But Don't Count On A Solo Movie

It was probably only a matter of time before the most popular ongoing franchise and one of the biggest genuine movie stars on the planet finally joined forces. Angelina Jolie's casting in Marvel's "Eternals" immediately helped lend a sense of uniqueness and legitimacy to Chloé Zhao's first step into the blockbuster scene, though Zhao hardly needed any extra help in that department once "Nomadland" went on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Still, recruiting someone of Jolie's star power ...

Eternals Spoiler Review: A Cosmic Superhero Family Dispute Where It's Complicated, Real Complicated

This review contains major spoilers for "Eternals."Marvel's "Eternals" opens with the biblical words, "In the beginning..." and what follows is a 157-minute film that reframes human history and life on Earth as the birth pangs of a godlike Celestial named Tiamut.

His version of protecting it is a little twisted, but he's an Eternal nonetheless. A big, bruise-colored Eternal who goes on to be one of the Avengers' greatest foes.

Eternals Credits Scenes Explained: What Does This Mean For The Future Of The MCU?

Marvel's "Eternals" follows in the tradition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by having a couple scenes waiting to be revealed in the credits.

However, both of the scenes also reach into much more obscure corners of the Marvel Comics universe, so don't be ashamed if you were made of questions after the credits scenes rolled out. That's why we're here to have the "Eternals" cre...
