The Age of Media Corporation Mega-Mergers Is Robbing Us of Bolder, Fresher Storytelling

The Age of Media Corporation Mega-Mergers Is Robbing Us of Bolder, Fresher Storytelling

Disney isn’t just the first studio to have five pictures cross a billion dollars at the box office in a single year and it isn’t just the biggest film studio right now. It’s the biggest film studio in the history of Hollywood. While investors are likely very pleased with this fact, the company’s series of monster mergers has set off a chain effect with other studios doing their own monster...

The Boys' Superhero Cheesecake Calendar Is, Uh, Fish-Flavored

The Boys' Superhero Cheesecake Calendar Is, Uh, Fish-Flavored

Even though superheroes are people with idealized bodies that we’re supposed to ogle and wonder at, because of how seemingly impossible they are, it’s rare that you see male-bodied heroes objectified in a way that highlights their sex appeal. Every so often, you might get a glimpse of Nightwing’s ass or Batman’s wang , but those are always made out to be bigger deals than they need to be....

Carnival Row Is Just Dull, and All the Fairy Fornicating in the World Can't Save It

Carnival Row Is Just Dull, and All the Fairy Fornicating in the World Can't Save It

In a world where fantasy adaptations reign ...hell, in the very same world of the studio that’s putting Lord of the Rings to the screen again, Amazon’s Carnival Row is not the fantasy drama you’re looking for.

Original fantasy works on TV are hard to come by these days which is a big reason why Carnival Row’s execution is so disappointing. (Writer/creator Travis Beacham tried to sell his...

Amazon's Wheel of Time Series Announces a Good Chunk of Its Cast

Amazon's Wheel of Time Series Announces a Good Chunk of Its Cast

The exciting news is that Amazon’s much-anticipated Wheel of Time series just cast a ton of actors! The not-as-exciting news is that the characters they’re playing are more famous than the actors—at least for now. Most of those Game of Thrones people were unknowns back in 2011, right?

According to a press release, the newly-cast actors are: Madeleine Madden (playing Egwene Al’Vere); Marcus...

Showrunner of The Boys Shares a Picture From the Already in-Progress Season 2

Showrunner of The Boys Shares a Picture From the Already in-Progress Season 2

It’s not that The Boys are back in town so much as that they never left.

Amazon surprised recently by renewing The Boys, their new show about outlandish action in a world run by corrupt superheroes , for a second season before the first had even aired. And now it seems that second season has already started filming. Or, at least, bloodletting.

On Twitter, showrunner Eric Kripke has shared a...

Vought International, the American company that manages the entire country’s population of licensed superheroes in the world of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys , is a capitalistic leviathan with tentacles reaching into the worlds of law enforcement, the entertainment industry, the military, and a number of other major parts of general society. Sound familiar?

Gloriously Gruesome Sci-Fi Cult Classic Event Horizon Might Become an Amazon Series

Gloriously Gruesome Sci-Fi Cult Classic Event Horizon Might Become an Amazon Series

I have often proclaimed my love for Paul W.S. Anderson’s 1997 sci-fi horror film Event Horizon, about a deep-space vessel that goes to a very bad dimension and returns with mind-warping powers, and features Laurence Fishburne barking the immortal line “Fuck this ship!” A TV series might happen, you say? Fuck YES!

Amazon and Paramount Television are working on developing the potential series,

If You Care About Earth, You Should Watch The Expanse

After a close brush with death before Amazon swooped in to save it , The Expanse is officially back for a fourth season in December. Which means that if you’re not already obsessed with the space opera that blends interplanetary politicking and battles with alien monsters, you’ve got a few months to catch up.

The Boys' Showrunner Wants It to Be 'the Most Brutally Realistic Depiction of Superheroes'

The Boys' Showrunner Wants It to Be 'the Most Brutally Realistic Depiction of Superheroes'

When the upcoming adaptation of The Boys hits Amazon Prime this week, showrunner Eric Kripke says that the series’ main aim is to show “superheroes as insecure, fucked-up, self-serving, and selfish as real humans really would be if given super powers.” How does that feel? According to Jack Quaid, who plays main character Hughie: “gooey.”

Created as a comics series in 2006 by writer Garth...

Bayona (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and consultant Bryan Cogman (Game of Thrones) are involved, and the writers’ room is operating under intense security precautions.

All the Best Sci-Fi TV and Movies Coming to Comic-Con 2019

Yes, it’s called Comic-Con, but these days, the biggest news out of the annual convention usually isn’t about comics. It’s about comic book-inspired (or at least influenced) film and television. Things change though. Ten years ago, movies dominated SDCC. Five years ago, television started taking over. Now, it’s a mix, leaning more into TV with a strong focus on streaming content. Since...
