First teaser for season 3 of Westworld is a long way from the park

Game Of Thrones is officially over, but HBO’s fine collection of high-quality content isn’t going to stop just because the war for Westeros did! Tonight, HBO also released the very first proper teaser for season three of Westworld, and hot damn, it’s a weird one. For starters, the show about the robot cowboy theme…

Meet Julia Roberts, patron saint of not giving a shit about Game Of Thrones Meet Julia Roberts, patron saint of not giving a shit about Game Of Thrones

This one’s for all of the people doing something else tonight, the people who don’t care what happens to Daenerys or Jon Snow, and the people who still firmly believe that dragons and ice zombies are just for nerds. Though the rest of the pop culture-loving world may disagree, just know this: You are not alone. In…

This fake John Wick NES game looks far too easy

We’re far from the days where every blockbuster movie had to have a shitty tie-in video game, with movie studios and game developers preferring shitty mobile games or Fortnite events now, so it’s a bit sad that we can no longer come back from the theater, sit down in front of the Nintendo, and play through an…

Fine, Michelle Rodriguez will do another Fast And Furious movie Fine, Michelle Rodriguez will do another Fast And Furious movie

Back in 2017, Michelle Rodriguez declared that she’s done with the Fast And Furious series unless the producers commit showing “some love to the women of the franchise on the next one,” a reference to the fact that the series has a bad habit of killing off its female characters or leaving them on the sidelines while …

Elizabeth Olsen could've been our Khaleesi if her audition hadn't been so bad Elizabeth Olsen could've been our Khaleesi if her audition hadn't been so bad

Nobody will ever want to talk about Game Of Thrones again in a few days, so we might as well let it all out while we can. With the finale set to air tonight, the people of Westeros are still reeling from Daenerys’ decision to torch King’s Landing, but would things have worked out differently if she looked less like…

James Wan and Lindsey Beer join Mark Millar's The Magic Order on Netflix James Wan and Lindsey Beer join Mark Millar's The Magic Order on Netflix

With Netflix dropping its Marvel shows and fully committing to original content, the streaming service has had to turn somewhere else for a way to address the all-important comic book adaptation genre.

The CW's Crisis On Infinite Earths will include every Arrowverse show and go for 5 hours The CW's Crisis On Infinite Earths will include every Arrowverse show and go for 5 hours

Last year, just as Avengers: Infinity War fever was sweeping the nation, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow threw in a familiar plot about collecting a series of magical stones that each have a particular super power. Unlike Infinity War, that ended with the heroes summoning a giant stuffed animal named Beebo to fight a monster…

A new Dark Knight rises in the first trailer for The CW's Batwoman

Ruby Rose’s Batwoman was introduced in Elseworlds, the most recent “Arrowverse” crossover on The CW, defending a distinctly crap-tastic Gotham City in the absence of a different caped crusader who mysteriously stopped showing up right around the time billionaire Bruce Wayne disappeared. Since then, The CW has given a…

Kevin Feige says the "real" Mandarin will show up in the MCU at some point Kevin Feige says the "real" Mandarin will show up in the MCU at some point

Iron Man 3 is a very underrated entry in the MCU, at least going off of some otherwise solid rankings, and one of the reasons for that is the controversial use of classic Iron Man villain The Mandarin. In the movie, The Mandarin—leader of the Ten Rings, the organization that kidnapped Tony Stark in the very first…

According to Variety, Emma Thompson is in talks to join Emma Stone in Disney’s live-action Cruella de Vil “origin story.” We don’t know who Thompson might be playing, as we don’t know many specifics about the plot, but the last thing we heard was that Cruella would be set in the ‘80s and would have a “punk vibe”—sort…

Transformers are real and Decepticons have infiltrated the U.S. Air Force Transformers are real and Decepticons have infiltrated the U.S. Air Force

Some unsettling news from Transformers fan site Seibertron: The Decepticons, an evil army of alien robots from the planet Cybertron, have somehow managed to infiltrate the United States military. These Cybertronians—or “Transformers,” as they’re more commonly known—are actually robots in disguise, as they can change…

Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer to play Dracula on Syfy's Van Helsing Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer to play Dracula on Syfy's Van Helsing

Universal’s Dark Universe failed to give us a definitive, modern take on Count Dracula, with Luke Evans’ Dracula Untold not even being included alongside all of the other failed monsters of that series, but maybe a Syfy original series will do what the Dark Universe could not (stranger things have happened). According…

Samurai Jack's Genndy Tartakovsky developing prehistoric cartoon for Adult Swim Samurai Jack's Genndy Tartakovsky developing prehistoric cartoon for Adult Swim

Adult Swim’s occasional revivals of older Cartoon Network shows aren’t always successful (that FLCL sequel sure was a waste of time), but depending on how you feel about tragic endings, the recent Samurai Jack sequel was quite good. Adult Swim was apparently pretty happy with it at least, because it’s now working with …
