First look at Arnold as the T-800 in Terminator Genysis

So far Terminator: Genysis hasn't done anything to inspire much confidence. First there was the stupid name and then the stupid images from the first look. Thanks to the fact that expectations are so far at rock bottom f...

Interstellar gets prequel comic, ending is explained

Interstellar is the sort of movie that polarized its audience. Some people hated it, other people loved it. I'm in the "loved it" category personally, so I'm enjoying all the speculation about its ending and whether or not it...

Star Wars: Episode VII gets official title
by Megan Porch

This morning, the official twitter for Star Wars revealed that Episode VII's principal photography finished shooting... and they also threw in a graphic that contains the film's subtitle.

The Force Awakens leaves me with a lot of questions. Was the Force taking a nap? Did it just not want to be bothered after all the drama surrounding the Skywalker family? Are midichlorians still a thing?

I guess we'll just have to see the movie to find out.

John Carter was one of the biggest cinematic flops in recent history and heads rolled at Disney after it floundered out of the start gate. It was too bad because it was actually an entertaining piece of science fiction a...

Why is Interstellar one minute shorter in 70mm?

Today the critics in DC got information on the upcoming screenings of Interstellar and for some reason it turns out that Christopher Nolan's space film is one minute longer in its non-70mm format. As you hopefully know t...

NYCC: Disney's Tomorrowland gets its first teaser

If you're not excited for Tommorowland now is the time to get there because at the New York Comic Con Disney started the hype. Nick will be supplying us with a full rundown from the event itself, but above you'll find our first look for the finally-here film from Pixar director Brad Bird. 

Britt Robinson plays a young teen who joins up with a jaded scientist (George Clooney) to discover the mysterious Tommorowland. Just from the trailer alone you can tell they'll be imbuing something special into this film. The only real worry is that Damon Lindelof co-wrote the screenplay with Bird so we might be in for a lot of nonsensical science fiction stuff. Hopefully it is kept at bay by the fun we know Bird can have.

Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar photo
Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar
by Nick Valdez

As Interstellar is one of the few films left making use of physical film over digital, you'll notice a surprising amount of emphasis over it in this most likely final trailer for Christopher Nolan's space hip-hopera (not really) Interstellar. Being touted as a 70mm IMAX film, 70mm film and 35mm film release, Nolan's longest film yet might be his most visually exciting. 

I'd just have to hope it's at least visually good because this trailer showing a few cracks. Watch it and you'll see what I mean. Interstellar opens November 7th. Follow this link to find all the ways you can watch this sucker.

Latest Jupiter Ascending trailer has the plot details

Jupiter Ascending may be the most unique science fantasy coming our way. Too bad the trailers don't really paint it in a good light. As the latest film from the Wachowskis, we should expect all kinds of craziness. The visual...

Interstellar to be Christopher Nolan's longest film yet

I don't really like saying Interstellar is Nolan's "longest film yet," because it might be a trap for his future films to come. What if he just gradually makes his films longer and longer with each entry? Will each film be hi...
