Jeri Ryan and Sir Patrick Stewart Discuss the Legacy of Star Trek, Spandex, and Being Memes

Jeri Ryan and Sir Patrick Stewart Discuss the Legacy of Star Trek, Spandex, and Being Memes

Nerd fame is a strange thing. The sheer passion with which people relate to you, or to something you’ve created, is a lot to handle, even for the most seasoned actor or creator. For the cast of a phenomenon like Star Trek , it must be even more overwhelming.

That intensity is part of what makes this interview, conducted by BBC Radio 1, so fun to watch. Talking to film critic Ali Plumb, Sir...

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's Showrunner Sheds Some Light on Those Last-Minute Twists

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's Showrunner Sheds Some Light on Those Last-Minute Twists

The third season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is now available for streaming, and if you devoured it in one big magical gulp you might be a bit perplexed by some of what happened. It’s a twisty mystical world of teen witches and hell legions, and this show’s storytelling has never been straightforward.

In particular, the third season ended with an episode that turned the story on its...

Aspiring King Arthur Rips Disneyland's Excalibur From Its Stone, Breaks It Immediately

Aspiring King Arthur Rips Disneyland's Excalibur From Its Stone, Breaks It Immediately

Disneyland’s Excalibur attraction , featuring the famed kingly sword in an anvil, is normally a chance for the park’s visitors to be reminded of The Sword in the Stone. You know, the way-underrated Disney version of the Arthur story, where the chosen one gets to pull the sword out and proceed on his way to the kingdom? Except, you’re not supposed to pull the sword out of the Disneyland...

This Behind-the-Scenes Featurette Explores the Raw, Jovial Energy of Birds of Prey

This Behind-the-Scenes Featurette Explores the Raw, Jovial Energy of Birds of Prey

The Harley Quinn-led Birds of Prey looks like so much fun . From the colors to the characters, to the sheer bursting energy that each released bit of footage has had, the whole package seems like a much more interesting space to occupy than most other glimpses of the DC Universe we’ve gotten on film.

In a new featurette, the cast and director of the film sit down to discuss just what feels...

Kylo Ren Returns to Saturday Night Live for Another Round of Undercover Boss

Kylo Ren Returns to Saturday Night Live for Another Round of Undercover Boss

And he only kills, like, a couple of people. Truly, he’s growing.

Last night, Adam Driver returned to host Saturday Night Live for the third time, and since SNL has never had a good idea that it wouldn’t repeat, that means Kylo Ren is back, too. During Driver’s first appearance, we saw Ren go undercover in a parody version of Undercover Boss, learning the struggles of the regular people...

Soon, We're All Going to Know What a Live-Action Jiminy Cricket Looks Like

Soon, We're All Going to Know What a Live-Action Jiminy Cricket Looks Like

I, for one, am not ready.

Yesterday, Deadline reported that Robert Zemeckis is officially and 100% on board to direct and co-write Disney’s live-action remake of Pinocchio , a story about a puppet who becomes a real boy, a vision so uncanny that of course Disney wants to make it with real actors. The film will be co-written with Chris Weitz, who worked on the screenplay for Rogue One as...

Sony Has Decided We Need a New Anaconda Movie

Sony Has Decided We Need a New Anaconda Movie

For a while there, in the late ‘90s, it felt like we were all really afraid of snakes . The vanguard of that fear was Anaconda, one of the most-mocked and most-beloved garbage monster movies of the era. Starring Ice Cube, Jennifer Lopez, and Jon Voight, it was a delightful romp through the Amazon. Or, well, it was a delightful romp for the giant snake that ate everybody.

Now, it seems that

Here Are a Couple The Rise of Skywalker Cameos You Almost Certainly Missed

Did you know Ed Sheeran was in this movie? No? Well, okay, honestly that’s probably a good thing. But he is there! So are a lot of other people; the Disney trilogy of Star Wars films hasn’t been shy about folding in cute cameos . And while some were pretty obvious, there are at least a couple that you almost certainly missed.

In a new post on the Oh My Disney promotional blog, Disney runs...

These Car Dudes Turn Scooby-Doo's Mystery Machine Into a Monster

I don’t know much about cars. But I do know Scooby-Doo . And I know the Mystery Machine is the rockin’-est, mystery-solvin’-est van around. So when these mechanics decide to have some fun with a van painted to look like the Mystery Machine, I can see the appeal.

In this video from Cleetus McFarland, the creator and his crew of car boys decide, for some reason, to refurbish a Mystery Machine...

In This Preview Clip, Supergirl's Post-Crisis Status Quo Is a Little Awkward

Supergirl has saved not just her world but reality itself. Surely returning to normalcy will be a relaxing, safe experience. Surely.

Except things are different, now. Post-Crisis , reality has shifted in ways that are not always comforting for our intrepid hero. Like, for instance: Lex is back. And everyone thinks he’s a good guy? Oh, no.

In this new sneak peek for the upcoming...

A Year Later, Jordan Peele Has Some Ideas About What the Tethered From Us Might Be Up To

Congratulations , you’ve taken over the country, killed your naively exploitative doppelganger, and have a snazzy red jumpsuit to boot. Now what? For the Tethered from Us , that’s a meaningful question, connected to another, more general question about these sympathetic antagonists: what do they do all day?

This Custom Lego Version of Echo Base Is Ready for the Empire's Siege

This Custom Lego Version of Echo Base Is Ready for the Empire's Siege

The sheer ambition of Lego creators never ceases to amaze me. Far from being satisfied with what Lego’s sets provide, these sculptors create incredible things. Like this version of Echo Base from The Empire Strikes Back, which is ready for battle.

Hopefully, this version will have a better fight than the one in the film, however. Clocking in at over 16,000 pieces, this Echo Base, created...

The Cast and Crew of Picard Discuss the Character-Centric Direction of Jean-Luc's Next Outing

The Cast and Crew of Picard Discuss the Character-Centric Direction of Jean-Luc's Next Outing

Star Wars: The Next Generation was, fulfilling the pedigree of the original Star Trek before it, a show that was ultimately full of hope. There was conflict, and sometimes it was bleak, but there was always a way forward for mankind, civilization, and the universe as a whole. There was danger on the frontier, but no truly unsoluble problems.

The promotional material for Picard suggests that,...

Disney's The Simpsons Supercuts Are Just More Markers on Fox's Grave

Disney's The Simpsons Supercuts Are Just More Markers on Fox's Grave

The Simpsons, in its best days and long after, has always been pop-culture savvy. A hyperawareness of the culture of animation, film, and television has always been baked deep into the show’s DNA, from its episode-length X-Files parody to Leonard Nimoy on a monorail to the Comic Book Guy’s whole deal. But not like this.

Now that The Simpsons belongs to Disney, we’re getting new ways to...

National Treasure 3 Gets the Green Light to Steal Increasingly Obscure Historical Documents

National Treasure 3 Gets the Green Light to Steal Increasingly Obscure Historical Documents

The first National Treasure movie had a demented but compelling premise: Nicholas Cage is a treasure hunter, and there’s a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Let’s steal it. National Treasure 2 was likewise about historical secrets hidden in... John Wilkes Boothe’s... diary? Presumably, National Treasure 3 will be about the map to Atlantis that Abraham Lincoln hid...

Adam Pally Tells All About the Day He Punched Baby Yoda

The Mandalorian’s biggest criminal finally tells his side of the story.

The first season of Baby Yoda’s Infant Adventures , aka The Mandalorian, was big on cute little cameos from comedians, in the form of Stormtroopers, bounty hunters, and occasionally the one with the bounty on their head. One of those cameos was Adam Pally, who appeared alongside Jason Sudekis in the last episode of the...
