On this past week's episode of Game of Thrones, we finally learned what happened to Hot Pie, the reformed bully who found his true calling as a baker and whom we last saw in season four. As fate would have it, Ben Hawkey, the actor who plays Hot Pie, has been busy in the kitchen as well.
Sidekicks. Always there to lend a helping hand, or sword, or wand, as the case may be. A hero is nothing without his or her sidekick, but these companions rarely get the recognition they deserve. A few second bananas may get the spotlight on occasion — your Robins, your Chewbaccas, your Igors — but they all originated in comics, films, or on TV. This list is for the truly forgotten, the most overlooked of the overlooked. Here is a ranking of the top 10 best science fiction and fantasy sidekicks that originated in books.
The first trailer for It was one of the scariest movie trailers in recent memory. Now, a new trailer is online and while it loses a bit of that shocking surprise, it makes up for it with plenty of tension, lots of new footage, and more looks at the evil clown Pennywise, who is simply terrifying.
On face value, it's easy to write Stranger Things off as a nostalgia-inducing homage to Stephen King, Steven Speilberg, John Carpenter and Guillermo del Toro.
Lucky for us, our favourite Mikey Neumann is back with a breakdown of the genius behind the show, explaining why this series is so much more than just its influences.
A new Dark Tower promo video was just released. It's called "Connected KINGdom," and points out that The Dark Tower is the center of a Stephen King universe that includes various other stories, many of which became very well-regarded films themselves. What does it fail to talk much about? The Dark Tower.
This week we heard about the news that is rocking the production of Justice League to its very core: Henry Cavill's Mission Impossible-mandated mustache must be digitally edited out of scenes being filmed during reshoots. But, as this delightful video shows, couldn't a movie be improved by extra mustaches?
Now that Wonder Woman has put DC back in the good graces of fans and critics alike, we can turn our attention to the rest of the DC movie universe while we await Justice League. (Please be good. Please be good.) This list contains the 28 DC Animated Original movies released so far, ranked from worst to best on the quality of their story, characters, and adaptation of the source material.
This year's Ghost In The Shell adaptation was a visually stunning movie — helped in no small part by the gorgeous practical effects, props and costumes built by New Zealand's Weta Workshop. In fact, far more of the film's beautiful visuals were built physically than most people would expect. We went to Weta to find out what went into building the world of Ghost In The Shell— and what it's like when your painstakingly crafted work is hidden behind layers of digital effects.
And Grant Gustin teases how Barry's time in the speedforce has changed him. James Cameron has a progress update on his plans for Terminator. The J.R.R. Tolkien biopic might have found its star. Plus, David Leitch on what Josh Brolin brings to Deadpool 2 and even more teasers for Rick & Morty's return. Behold, Spoilers!
When it comes to getting your hands on a signature superhero costume — one that people will remember you for — you've pretty much got three options. You can DIY it like a young Peter Parker, hire an emotionally-disturbed criminal to make you one like Daredevil, or you can request a meeting with Edna Mode.
You don't see Gucci mentioned on Gizmodo that often, given the Italian fashion house isn't really into props or cosplay. But to help introduce its 2017 Winter fashion campaign, the brand created a short film inspired by the original Star Trek series. It's wonderful, and we'd happily trade Star Trek: Discovery for a whole series of this.
