Report: Taika Waititi May Be Developing a Star Wars Movie

Report: Taika Waititi May Be Developing a Star Wars Movie

Serious question: Does Taika Waititi ever sleep? We’ve long had our suspicions about the very busy writer-director-actor for some time now, but the latest nugget of news about the Oscar nominee hints at yet another major project in the works—one that could return him to a certain galaxy far, far away.

The Hollywood Reporter cites “sources” that claim Waititi “has been approached to develop a...

Director Scott Derrickson Has Departed the Doctor Strange Sequel

Director Scott Derrickson Has Departed the Doctor Strange Sequel

Not because of any devious dark magic; apparently, the cause is that boring old spell known as “creative differences.”

The director himself took to Twitter to confirm his departure from the project: “Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences. I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP.”

American Horror Story Just Got Renewed All the Way Up to Season 13

American Horror Story Just Got Renewed All the Way Up to Season 13

American Horror Story has had its ups and downs over the years, but Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s campy, gory anthology series still has plenty of life left in it. That energy was on full display in last fall’s wonderfully fun 1984 , and now the show’s getting at least four more seasons to play with.

This new order adds an additional three seasons to the previously-announced season 10, and...

8 Oceanic Creature Features That Delight in Underwater Perils

8 Oceanic Creature Features That Delight in Underwater Perils

Humans who find themselves living beneath the ocean in sci-fi movies might as well be living in space . Many of the dangers are the same, be they natural (oxygen scarcity, claustrophobic proximity to asshole co-workers ) or unnatural (monsters !). Needless to say, it’s a setting that has inspired a lot of filmmakers.

This Friday brings a new entry into that genre: Underwater , starring Kristen...

By day, he’s a Looney Tunes-style rabbit whose bustling career is built around constantly getting bested by his nemesis, a cheeky carrot. By night, he wallows in depression brought on by the dark monotony of his constant defeats—until a strangely familiar vegetable pops up to taunt him in real life, too.

The Expanse Showrunner Talks About Season 4's Breakout Characters and the Status of Season 5

The Expanse season four dropped last week on Amazon Prime , so we figured now was the perfect time to talk to showrunner Naren Shankar about some of our favorite things about the new episodes —as well as gently prod him for a few tidbits, however vague, about season five.

Some very mild spoilers for season four follow.

Watchmen's Third Volume of Outstanding Soundtrack Music Is Now Available Online

We’ve made no secret of our love for HBO’s Watchmen , and one of the many elements that helped the show become such a powerful viewing experience was Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ unique, perfectly complementary soundtrack. The duo has just released a volume three, and yes, it includes that Bowie cover .

The rest of the 15 new tracks hint at plot points in the series, as expected (“A Man...

A Space Scavenger Makes a Very Strange Discovery in Sci-Fi Short Eden

A Space Scavenger Makes a Very Strange Discovery in Sci-Fi Short Eden

Would you hand over your soul for the ultimate score?

This FX-driven short from Canadian-American filmmaker Kristian Bakstad is about a sleazy artifact hunter who detects a valuable find on an out-of-the-way planet. When he arrives, however, he realizes this isn’t a typical scavenging mission, and what (and who) he finds makes it very clear why the film is titled Eden.

This is very much a...

Rick and Morty Delivered One of Its Best Episodes Ever...Before Going on Hiatus Again

Rick and Morty Delivered One of Its Best Episodes Ever...Before Going on Hiatus Again

The Rick and Morty faithful know what it means to wait for new episodes —and are on familiar turf again, now that the first half of season four is over . This might be why the first five episodes leaned so hard into fan service. But they also elevated the show’s signature blend of juvenile humor and flat-out brilliance.

The episodes all put the focus squarely on Rick. Which, duh—obviously,...

In the Castle Rock Finale, Annie Wilkes' History of Violence Comes Full Circle

In the Castle Rock Finale, Annie Wilkes' History of Violence Comes Full Circle

Castle Rock season two was, overall, a more satisfying viewing experience than season one —ramping up the pace and the supernatural horror while working in some nifty Stephen King Easter Eggs along the way. But there’s really only been one story on the Hulu series this season, and the finale made that crystal clear.

Tim Robbins was, as expected, great as established Stephen King character...
