That Wild Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Ending Is 100% Canonical

That Wild Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Ending Is 100% Canonical

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous has bitten off more than we expected it to chew. The first season ended on a surprising cliffhanger, one that might change the way you look at Fallen Kingdom or other films in the franchise. Is this a one-off thing, or a bona fide part of the Jurassic World universe now? According to the showrunners, it’s totally canon.

“That’s what I’m telling you. That’s...

In the midst of the

Emmy Awards last night, Marvel surprised comic book nerds and moon hexers alike by dropping the first trailer for WandaVision , the studio’s upcoming Disney+ series featuring the Avengers’ strangest couple .

Lovecraft Country Expanded Its Mythos With a Carnal Story about War

Lovecraft Country Expanded Its Mythos With a Carnal Story about War

The degree to which HBO’s

Lovecraft Country has already branched off from the novel its based on might give you the sense that at this point, with half the season over, the story might slow down on the worldbuilding to begin fully weaving its core character’s arcs together in the buildup to its finale. But the first few minutes alone of “Meet Me in Daegu” brush that idea aside wholly.

Now that the show has returned, it’s back to the regular airing of new episodes, and I’m excited for where the season is going. With Sterling Archer awake, he’s getting back to business, and business...

Now, talking to Total Film, David Harbour, the actor behind...

A Tribute to Horror Icon Tom Savini's Most Memorable Acting Roles

A Tribute to Horror Icon Tom Savini's Most Memorable Acting Roles

Tom Savini is one of the greatest special effects make-up artists ever—

a master of masks , creatures , prosthetics, fake blood, and screamingly gruesome ways to die . But he actually got his show-biz start as an actor, and over the years he’s tapped into those talents and popped up in some very cool places.
