Marvel and DC superhero movies continue to tear up the box-office - which means there are a lot of newly minted comic fans looking to sink their teeth into the medium. Here are some of our personal favourites.
Last night, the Hollywood premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi marked the first time anyone outside of Disney and Lucasfilm got a chance to see Rian Johnson's long-awaited eighth mainline Star Wars film. (And John Boyega made it after all!) Now, responses have flooded in on social media from attendees, and they're good, y'all.
The Star Wars saga is filled with characters who never get the spotlight, but captured the minds of fans, no matter how minor or inconsequential their appearances were. Here's 11 blink-and-you'll-miss-them Star Wars characters that became more prominent than you could ever imagine, thanks to the multitude of tie-in media that made up the Expanded Universe.
Besides the existence of the film itself, the best part about Star Wars: The Last Jedi is that it gives Mark Hamill an excuse to do a tour of late-night promotional appearances. Despite not being able to talk about the movie, Hamill is a consistent delight. His mixture of impressions, anecdotes, and genuine passion for life and art is incredibly compelling.
Glen Keane, son of The Family Circus creator Bil Keane, worked on some of Disney's most successful modern animated hits, including Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid. But the other night on The Late Late Show with James Corden, he traded his sketch pad and pencils for a 3D controller to paint Ariel in virtual reality.
Video: It doesn't matter who your favourite Game of Thrones character is, because Tyrion, Sansa and even Jon Snow are completely over-shadowed whenever Daenerys' dragons show up in an episode. But despite recent advancements in reviving extinct creatures, this VFX reel by Image Engine reveals how the show brings its true stars to life.
Doctor Who is almost as defined by its legacy of incredible villains as it is by its ever-changing hero. But not all Who villains are made equally - especially when it comes to their outfits. Here are some of the worst fashion criminals in Doctor Who history... who also just happen to be actual criminals, too.
The Shape of Water is shaping up (sorry, not sorry) to be one of the best recent films, and that's partly thanks to the mysterious allure of Doug Jones' fishman creature, who's captured the hearts and minds of the internet. A new book is diving into the process of making the movie, and we have an exclusive look inside.
The first season of Jessica Jones was all about New York's booziest superhero confronting the nightmares of her past in the form of the Purple Man. Although he's gone by the time of season 2, he's most definitely not forgotten - and the show will use his return to delve further into Jessica's messed up past.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is creeping ever closer to finally coming out, but we still have a ways to go. We've all been waiting so long it's getting unbearable, and there are only so many times you can reread Porg news. So why not spend the time curating your own mini film festival, and enjoying some recently released shorts? Here are 10 we highly recommend.
Video: Almost two years have passed since actor Dylan O'Brien was hurt on the set of Wes Ball's final film in the Maze Runner series, The Death Cure. The injury delayed the sci-fi adaptation a year, but now, it's almost here and there's a brand new trailer to boot.
Listen, folks. We all loved Ron Perlman's performance in Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy movies, but it's high time we accepted that there's a new Hellboy in town and his name is David Harbour. You might have heard about him. Nice guy; he's got quite the dad bod. Or at least he did until he had to start Hellboy training.
The incredibly corny yet thoroughly enjoyable 1993 action flick Demolition Man pits a disgraced LAPD officer (Sylvester Stallone) against a dangerous criminal (Wesley Snipes) in the year 1996, and then again in 2032, after they're thawed out of their cryogenic prison. But their violent beef is not nearly as fascinating as the future that awaits them - a pseudo-utopia that's played for laughs, but has felt increasingly sinister over the years. Seriously!
Carrie Fisher's death last year was a major blow to the many fans who took inspiration from her life, as well as her work as a writer and actor. She'd completed filming for her final turn as General Leia Organa in Star Wars: The Last Jedi before she passed, but sometimes, filmmaking demands that actors return to the recording booth. A new quote from director Rian Johnson talks about how he dealt with this problem.
