Even J.J. Abrams Can't Get Disney to Release 'Unspecial' Versions of the Star Wars Movies

Even J.J. Abrams Can't Get Disney to Release 'Unspecial' Versions of the Star Wars Movies

The white whale of any Star Wars fan—besides my dream Ahsoka Tano video game—is an unmodified release of the original Star Wars trilogy. Forget the special editions, forget the even-specialier editions. Many of us, from film buffs to preservationists to shameless, Prequel-hating nerds, want to see the films as they were originally presented in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

JJ Abrams, direct of two of...

HBO Max Is Moving Forward With Another Try at Adapting Snow Crash

HBO Max Is Moving Forward With Another Try at Adapting Snow Crash

If you ask any random fan off the street how to get into cyberpunk or science fiction influenced by cyberpunk, there’s a solid chance they’re going to tell you to read Snow Crash. Neal Stephenson ’s 1992 classic is a massively influential cyber dystopian work that prefigured a lot of what modern cyberpunk pastiche fiction would look like. It also popularized the term “metaverse” to describe...

The Creators Behind HBO's Watchmen Are Being Very Cagey About a Second Season

The Creators Behind HBO's Watchmen Are Being Very Cagey About a Second Season

When HBO’s ersatz Watchmen sequel was announced, it was framed, very clearly, as a miniseries.One season , in and out, one and done. But when asked the question now, the various answers given by the cast and crew of the show are... a bit different.

In a lengthy feature recently released, Variety goes in depth on the production of Watchmen in a (spoiler-filled) rundown of the show’s most...

Diana’s back, this time in the glitz, glamor, and the glut of corruption of the 1980s. Greed is good, baby, though I imagine Wonder Woman might not agree.

Finally, after a far-too-long wait, the first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 , the sequel to Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman,...

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Returns for Season 3 in January

That seems to be roughly the situation that Sabrina finds herself in for the third season, “Part 3", of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina , the Netflix series that has made Sabrina’s adventures into something between actual occult horror and Riverdale. When part two left off, Sabrina had just come off a bitter victory...

How the Experts at Legacy Effects Brought E.T. Back to Life

How the Experts at Legacy Effects Brought E.T. Back to Life

E.T. got a sequel, did you notice? Well, of a sorts, in the form of a lavish holiday commercial that brought Eliot back and recreated the vibe of the classic Spielberg film , complete with a puppet version of E.T. himself . Turns out, that puppet was an elaborate construction built solely for that commercial, a full reconstruction of the original. In a new video, the people behind that...

George Miller Says He's Still Making Another Mad Max Movie, Just Wait a Little Longer

The wandering continues. Soon.

At least, that’s what George Miller said, in a recent, lengthy report from Deadline concerning his upcoming film, Three Thousand Years of Longing, starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton. Not a lot is known about that film, though it is beginning to gear up right now. And as soon as it’s done, Miller suggests, another Mad Max is coming down the pipeline.

Pop quiz, hotshot: say you’ve made a big, colorful remake of one of your most beloved animated properties , featuring a massive cast of people of color, many of whom from groups that are typically only cast in Hollywood as, uh, terrorists. Say that movie makes a lot of money, and you decide to make a spinoff for your new streaming service. Which character do you base that spinoff on?

What if you were able to break the boundaries of the role society placed you in? And what if you were, also, literally, a video game character? And what if you were also played by Ryan Reynolds in a new motion picture? Wait. Hang on. This metaphor has fallen apart.

Peter Sarsgaard Has Been Cast in The Batman in an Unknown Role

Peter Sarsgaard Has Been Cast in The Batman in an Unknown Role

Though fans have a guess… or two.

Matt Reeves made Bat-waves yesterday when he posted a simple tweet. Only three words, and one gif. The words? “Oh… Hi, Peter…” Oh, and there was also a Bat emoji. That part is pretty important.

That’s right, it appears Sarsgaard is next in line to join the frankly incredible cast of The Batman, alongside Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, and Paul Dano. Only...

In the Biggest Trailer Yet, Crisis on Infinite Earths Is Looking Grim

“The multiverse needs you!” Yeah, because things are not going well.

In the latest trailer for CW’s big, almost-here Crisis on Infinite Earths , everyone is on the brink of despair. Supergirl is mourning her failures; heroes from other universes are warning of the coming disaster; and other Earths are blinking out, one by one. It’s grim. It’s exciting. And, hey, Kevin Conroy is there!

Avatar 2 Is Done Filming—For This Year, That Is

How long have they been making Avatar 2? I feel like I have been hearing cryptic updates on this film for half of my mortal life, like whispers from seers about the return of King Arthur or something. And this time, it continues—but with pictures, for once! Or, well, a picture.

The official Avatar Twitter recently posted an image celebrating the “last day of live-action filming in 2019"....

Baby Yoda Could Definitely Take Darth Sidious in a Fight

One of the most thrilling matchups in the history of Star Wars is between Yoda and Palpatine. Darth Sidious himself, Lord of the Sith, destroyer of the Jedi, master of Darth Vader, vs. the greatest Jedi to ever live (in canon, anyways, sorry Revan stans). It can’t be topped. Unless....
