Remember that movie about the murders of Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur that Johnny Depp is in, for some reason? Depp is playing a detective who tries (and, obviously, fails) to crack both cases, and Forest Whitaker has just joined the cast as Depp’s journalist buddy who is also interested to find out what actually happened to the hip hop icons.

The 50th anniversary of Star Trek this week really put in perspective just how long we’ve been living with the concept of extraterrestrial. In 2016, there’s something downright familiar about aliens, maybe because in most situations our conception of them remains rooted in our conception of ourselves: They look like us with pointy ears or a ribbed nose, or they don’t look like us, but they behave like us, with motivations and actions that are easily recognizable and understandable. One of Arrival’s greatest achievements is the way it makes alien seem alien again: Strange and inhuman and beyond the limits of our comprehension. It readjusts our thinking about what life on other worlds might be like. And in doing so, it also readjusts our thinking about what life on our world can be like.

In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Felicity Jones’ rebellious Jyn Erso and her team are on a mission to retrieve the plans to the Death Star which, judging by these new character posters, have been right in front of their faces THE ENTIRE TIME. Actually, on their faces, and they look like intricate Etch-a-Sketch doodles uploaded to the Grid in Tron.

With New York Comic-Con happening this weekend, we’re up to our ears in new footage, rumors, and casting announcements for the Marvel Netflix televisions series. Why, it’s almost enough to make us overlook the new footage, rumors, and casting announcements from the Marvel movies! Almost, but not quite.

If an alien species were to visit Earth with mysterious intentions, it just makes sense that we’d send Amy Adams to represent humankind. She’s empathetic, she’s approachable, she’s understanding, and she’s the total antithesis of the hostile and aggressive types we see facing off aliens in most sci-fi movies. (At least this is how I like to picture Amy Adams.)

The first photos from Denis Villeneuve‘s latest film Arrival debuted earlier this week, and they revealed a big oval shaped object behind Amy Adams. This is a movie about aliens so could it be a spaceship...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Boss Talks Saw Gerrera Joining ‘Rogue One’

If Marvel has taught us anything, management of a shared universe between TV and film is a dicey prospect, one even Star Wars struggles to make a two-way street. That seemed to change with news that Forest Whitaker’s Rogue One character would move from animated Clone Wars beginnings to live-action, but what does supervising producer Dave Filoni have to say?

The upcoming reboot/remake/whatever of The Crow has had a pretty hard time getting off the ground. Luke Evans was originally supposed to star in the new version, set to be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), but both Evans and Fresnadillo exited the project. The reigns were then handed to director Corin Hardy, with Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston attached to star. But now Huston has also departed the project, leaving the role of the goth hero vacant once again.
