A man was arrested Thursday for sneaking into Phoenix Comicon with a collection of guns and other weapons, saying he wanted to hurt law enforcement. More details have since emerged that paint a disturbing picture about the incident, including a vendetta against one of the Power Rangers.
Rumours have been circulating for months that Luke and Leia would finally reunite in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, thanks in no small part to their touching Vanity Fair portrait. Our collective hopes skyrocketed when it appeared Star Wars expert Pablo Hidalgo revealed their reunion in the upcoming film — but according to Hidalgo himself, that's not true at all.
According to pretty much everyone, we're in the "golden age" of television. But new data shows a huge jump in people who are ready to ditch cable as well as disastrous satisfaction ratings for the industry. Despite investing $US300 ($403) million in fixing its customer service problems, Comcast managed to sink another six per cent in popularity this year.
Tetsuya Nomura is best known for his design work on Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts (for better or for worse). But he's also known for designing the world's most bizarre Batman figure, which turned the Dark Knight into... well, the giant Final Fantasy dragon-god Bahamut, basically. Now he's back to do the same to the Joker, and it's just as wacky.
It is well documented that we — we being James and Katharine — are obsessed with the names in Star Wars.

Disney's foundation may have been built on animation, but these days, Disney is powered by franchises. That's especially true in the theme parks, where major expansions have recently been announced based on some of Disney's newer, blockbuster franchises such as Star Wars, Marvel and... Avatar. And while you may have no feelings about James Cameron's 2009 mind-bogglingly successful film, I think you'll feel very differently if you enter the world of Pandora at Disney World.
Patrick Hines' graphic novel "Camp Redblood and The Essential Revenge" goes to show that given enough time, you can do pretty much anything with the most rudimentary of tools. Short of cracking open a hex editor and inputting the RGB values yourself, Microsoft's Paint is as basic as it gets to creating art. Somehow, Hines managed to craft an exquisite series of cartoons and publish them via ebook using the lowliest of image editors.
Some very ominous news about The Last Jedi. The New Mutants movie is taking a surprising direction. The Doctor may change, but Doctor Who itself doesn't appear to be going anywhere. Plus: A tease about the setting of the Wonder Woman sequel, and hints about the monsters of Stranger Things' second season! Spoiler ho, me mateys!
The past six seasons of Game of Thrones have all managed to spread their stories of love, lust, murder and war over uniform sets of 10 episodes each. Season seven's shaking things up a bit by cutting down its episode count down to seven (the Faith of the Seven will be pleased), but a new report says season eight will be even shorter.
This week, Disney opens their first Marvel Studios theme park ride in the United States, called Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout! Though it features many, many elements from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, don't let that fool you: The ride is in a world all its own... and it's only the beginning.
