It’s been an outstanding week for Godzilla fans. First, we got a monster-packed new trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Then, we got a very fun fan-made remix trailer that looked at the upcoming movie through an old-school kaiju lens. And now, the movie’s supporting cast of “Titans” have their very own…
We recently ran through all the finished screenplays Guillermo del Toro has floating around his desk right now—but the wait is nearly up for the latest project from the Oscar-winning director. Animated alien tale 3Below: Tales of Arcadia hits Netflix next week, and a new trailer is here to get you excited.
It’s not unusual for popular actors to be cast in multiple movies and TV shows in a relatively short time period—but 2018 had an unusual number of performers doing double duty in notable genre projects. Here are six of our favorite ubiquitous faces this year.
If you watched last year’s brilliant Twin Peaks: The Return, you definitely remember three things: the enigmatic finale; the nuclear eighth episode; and “Fuck you, Tammy!” Her turn as FBI Agent Tammy Preston forever ensconced in weird TV history, performer Chrysta Bell is now back to her main gig, making music—and…
By now, you’ve likely heard of Hulu’s Into the Dark, a holiday-themed horror anthology that’s rolling out in monthly installments. But if you have yet to tune in, the Christmas episode, “Pooka!,” premieres today and is absolutely not to be missed. io9 just so happens to have an exclusive video of its director…
Hot off the excellent news of its renewal for a fourth season, The Good Place returned from a brief hiatus to show us what happened when Janet brought the humans and Michael into her “void” to protect them from demons on Earth. The result? Yet another new scenario for the ever-changing show.
Got a minute? Got 10 minutes, more like? We’ve gathered 10 recent sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and animated shorts, ranging from low-budget efforts by emerging filmmakers to more professionally polished works. Two things they all have in common: They’re all very brief, and they’re all highly entertaining. Enjoy!
The best sitcom on TV will return for more surreal ethics dilemmas, shrimp-cocktail feasts, Bad Janets, Jacksonville Jaguars shout-outs, and oddly plausible afterlife scenarios because NBC’s The Good Place just got renewed for a fourth season.
It’s December—traditionally, not a month that brings too many book releases, but there are still plenty of juicy sci-fi and fantasy stories to help get you through the rest of the year. We’ve got you covered with dragons, interstellar treasure hunters, apocalypses, werewolves, evil AI, and so much more!
Oh no, not again! College student Tree (Jessica Rothe) thought she’d broken the time-loop at the end of last year’s horror comedy Happy Death Day, but the movie was a hit, so the slashin’ and repeatin’ (and baby-mask wearin’) begins anew—with higher, sequel-appropriate stakes this time.
They’re heeere! The first six Galaxy of Adventures shorts—which use original dialogue and sound effects to help transform Star Wars films into kid-friendly animated shorts—are now available on the brand-new Star Wars Kids YouTube channel. And you can watch them all here!
This may be controversial, especially considering that very startling Chidi reveal, but Tahani Al-Jamil is the best human character on The Good Place. In fact, she’s the second-best character overall (second, because nobody beats Janet), and the reasons why have become very clear in season three.
Christmas has its own horror sub-genre at this point (got a fun list for ya right here all about it, in fact), while Hulu’s current Into the Dark anthology series is exploring the relationship between scary movies and red-letter days on a month-by-month basis. But with Thanksgiving upon us, we wanted to look back at…
The legend of Robin Hood has been around since the 15th century, possibly even earlier, and is still as popular as ever. As Hollywood rolls out a “gritty” take on the story this week, there’s no better time to recall our other favorite versions that took a deliberately non-traditional approach to the classic tale.
In honor of Veterans Day, Homes For Our Troops—a nonprofit that helps build accessible homes for injured veterans—is running a celebrity-powered eBay fundraiser. You can bid on stuff like George Clooney’s fancy motorcycle—but the real top prize involves a pair of excellent time-traveling dudes.
It’s been nearly a year since the first trailer for Alita: Battle Angel—directed by Robert Rodriguez, co-produced and co-written by James Cameron, the project’s longtime champion—startled us with the main character’s exaggerated, distractingly creepy eyes.
Rob Savage’s Salt is ultra-mega-short, but it will send a chill down your spine. It’s about a mom, her sick kid, and a demon that can only be contained by the titular substance. Pretty simple, but you won’t believe how much suspense is jammed into this thing. Oh god...not the fan!
Star Trek: Discovery’s latest episode in its bite-sized Short Treks series doesn’t feature a fan-favorite character from the show like the previous installment did. But “Calypso” does have one familiar element—Discovery’s titular ship, though presented in a way we may never see again.
These days, the idea of trying to contact spirits using technology calls to mind those reality shows that send obnoxious “ghost hunters” into abandoned hospitals. But as a new book investigates, the practice has a whole lot more history and nuance behind it than that.
We’ve already sung the praises of horror comedy Stan Against Evil’s excellent third season—and now we’ve got a very fun clip to share, courtesy of IFC, that happens to feature one of our all-time favorite demons ever to grace the show.
