George R.R. Martin Says Game of Thrones Ending Was Freeing as a Writer

George R.R. Martin Says Game of Thrones Ending Was Freeing as a Writer

Writing a fantasy epic is hard. Writing a fantasy epic while also competing with a television show that adapts said epic, and will finish before you? Apparently that’s way harder.

At least, that’s the impression I get from an interview George RR Martin recently gave to the Guardian. In it, he talks about the pressure of creating while an adaptation of his work is ongoing.

“There were a couple...

I don’t normally think of Terminator as being a very emotionally expressive franchise, but there’s something haunting about this great storyboard.

A couple days ago, James Cameron celebrated his birthday, and to commemorate the occasion Terminator star, former governor, and now again Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a piece of storyboard art created by Cameron for the first...

Haunting of Hill House Will Get Extended Director's Cuts on Blu-Ray

Haunting of Hill House Will Get Extended Director's Cuts on Blu-Ray

Netflix shows don’t always get physical releases, and when they do, they rarely get longer. Haunting of Hill House will change that.

As revealed by Bloody Disgusting and confirmed in a Tweet by Mike Flanagan, Haunting of Hill House’s Blu-Ray release will feature extended cuts of several episodes of the series, which Flanagan calls a process of “restoring several episodes to their true form.”

Mortal Kombat Has Cast More of Its Lead Roles

Mortal Kombat Has Cast More of Its Lead Roles

Cue the techno theme music.

As reported by the Hollywood Reporter (which I always love saying), some of the lead roles in the James Wan-produced reboot of the Mortal Kombat film series, based on the gloriously gory video games, are either cast or very close to it.

Popping up in the character select screen are Mehcad Brooks (Supergirl), who will play Jackson “Jax” Briggs, the metal-arm-having...

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...

The Lion King Has Edged Out Frozen As the Highest-Grossing Animated Film of All Time, More Proof That Disney’s Monopoly Is Inescapable and Nothing Matters

The Lion King Has Edged Out Frozen As the Highest-Grossing Animated Film of All Time, More Proof That Disney’s Monopoly Is Inescapable and Nothing Matters

This is what entertainment journalism is, in 2019: watching Disney score an unending series of victories over itself as the film industry grows smaller and smaller.

The latest victory is The Lion King, which, as Cinema Blend reports, with a worldwide gross of over $1.3 billion, has now beaten Frozen as the (not adjusted for inflation) highest earning animated film release of all time. Which...

Rob Liefeld Shares Some Cut Concept Art From the Deadpool Movie

The Deadpool movies have a lot of affection for Rob Liefeld’s X-Men-adjacent work, including not just Deadpool but a variety of other characters familiar to Liefeld’s readers, and even an ersatz X-Force team in Deadpool 2.

One character that was slated to appear but didn’t, however, is X-Force’s Kane, a former ally of Cable’s and a cyborg who had a history with the Weapon X program. According...

Explore the Creation of Jim Starlin's Marvel Characters, With Jim Starlin

Jim Starlin’s creations have become a major lynchpin of the Marvel Universe in its modern iteration, with characters like Gamora, Drax, and Thanos dominating films, becoming memes, and generally entering broader pop culture in a way that would have been difficult to imagine only a decade ago.

In a great interview and montage created by Fandom, Starlin talks through his history at Marvel and...

Don't Worry, Cartoon Network Is Already Teasing New Episodes of Infinity Train

Watching a high-quality cartoon in the modern age always comes with a bit of terror . Is this going to get cancelled, or shafted, or have its release schedule constantly shifted around in a way that baffles everyone including the creators?

Watch This Campy Series of Chucky Short Films to Learn More About the Killer's Backstory

Let’s unravel the secrets of the Lakeshore Strangler.

Before Chucky was a horrible murderous doll , he was a fairly mundane serial killer, y’know, so far as serial killers go. He was also known for strangling people, an MO that is suspiciously absent from his actual depicted murdering in the movies. And where there’s a plot hole, there’s a fan film, which is where the second part of Chris .R...

Amanda Seyfried Apparently Turned Down the Role of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy

Amanda Seyfried Apparently Turned Down the Role of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy

Not every actor in Hollywood wants to dress up as a green alien all the time.

For the few, the brave, the willing to sit in makeup chairs for hours upon hours every day, the chance to play heroes from places other than Earth can be an exciting one, but it’s not an opportunity all actors are into. Take the excellent Amanda Seyfried, for example, who revealed recently that she declined to be a...

This Sonic the Hedgehog & OK K.O Crossover Clip is Pure Nostalgic Joy

This Sonic the Hedgehog & OK K.O Crossover Clip is Pure Nostalgic Joy

In another nostalgic reminder today, I’m thinking about how much I used to love the awful, terrible, absolutely egregiously bad Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon. Like, it is a bad kid’s TV show by most metrics, unless your metric is the consumption of chili dogs. But, oh, did I love it. And seeing Sonic in a cartoon again—a good cartoon, at that? It’s nice.

Courtesy of Cartoon Network, this clip...
