Honestly, 20th Century Fox hardly needs to hype up the release of Ridley Scott’s The Martian any more than they already have — we’re sold. But today brings a new TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi film, which makes excellent use of Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower” while showing off a little bit of new footage.
As teased earlier this year at E3 by Nintendo representative Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo is contemplating a return to making movies based on their classic video game properties. That sentiment has been echoed again now, as a close look at Nintendo’s upcoming plans reveals a vague idea for “visual content production.” You know, because this worked out so well last time.
Okay, so maybe “top 1,000" doesn’t seem like a lot, but apparently enough people have named their babies Anakin that it’s landed on a list of the most popular baby names. As reported last year, names like Tyrion and Arya have become increasingly popular thanks to Game of Thrones, particularly in the UK, but over here in the U.S. we’re keeping things a bit more American by naming our kids after Star Wars characters.
Cosplay has moved beyond simple hobby into an outright dedicated art form with professionally-shot photos and carefully constructed, very accurate costumes. It is, in the eyes of some, the ultimate display of devotion to fandom. And after years of cosplayers taking over conventions, Marvel is giving some of the best ones some very cool recognition by putting them front and center on new variant covers of their comic books
God, the devil, the dragon and the lamb — in Hannibal’s eyes they are not at all dissimilar, as most things remain slippery in his mind palace. Everything tends to bleed and blur together in his orbit, as evoked in the persistent motif of layering one character’s face over Hannibal’s own. Divided by the glass partition of his cell, it’s easier to blend Jack or Will or Alana’s faces with Hannibal’s, as they stare at each other from either side of the glass and Hannibal delivers his weekly sermons on the currency of evil.
The other day we brought you the exclusive first images and video from the set of Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond, featuring Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk, Anton Yelchin’s Chekov, Simon Pegg’s Scotty and newcomer Sofia Boutella’s mysterious new alien character. That video was yanked by Paramount, but the studio has allowed it to come back online, giving you the first real look at the highly-anticipated sequel.
Not only is this LEGO recreation of Jurassic World very well-made, but it’s awesomely funny, and, well pretty spot-on. It’s kind of amazing that the essential plot points of the film can be boiled down to 90 seconds — even dismissing the humorous angle, this video’s got a point: Jurassic World is not all that complex to begin with.
If you’ve shelled out for an Amazon Prime subscription, then you should probably make sure you’re taking full advantage of all it has to offer, like Amazon’s growing streaming library, filled with plenty of movie and TV options — you know, in case you’ve somehow run out of choices on Netflix. Read on for our guide to all the new releases hitting Amazon Prime Instant Video in September.
The tide of Deadpool images and promotional materials has slowed down to a bit of a trickle, which may be a good thing considering that the film doesn’t even hit theaters until February — and we’ve already seen so, so much from it. But 20th Century Fox has released a new, very cool image today, featuring the Merc With a Mouth flying through the air like an action hero badass.
When Colin Trevorrow was confirmed to direct Star Wars: Episode 9, there were some divisive reactions to that news. Although Jurassic World quickly became one of the highest-grossing films of all time, many felt as though Trevorrow’s blockbuster sequel was deeply flawed — why should he get the Star Wars gig? And better yet: why are only men directing these films, or just blockbusters in general? Trevorrow himself has some thoughts about the lack of women directing blockbusters, and while he means well, he’s a bit off.
