Next month will bring a new chapter of the Alien franchise to the big screen with Ridley Scott back behind the camera for Alien: Covenant. The film is both a sequel to Prometheus and a prequel to Alien, and there are apparently several more stories left to tell in between.
The new line-up of Alien films forced Neill Blomkamp to cancel his alternate sequel that would have brought back Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, but that movie seems to be on the backburner indefinitely. Thankfully, someone else was able to give us our fix of Ellen Ripley, albeit in the form of a comedy sketch where she has some trouble getting proper healthcare from The Late Show host Stephen Colbert after all the xenomorph encounters she’s had over the years.

Star Trek: Discovery takes place a decade before the events of the original Star Trek series and you know what that means: we’re going to see some familiar faces. Specifically, we’re going to see some new actors playing familiar faces. We already knew that Sarek, the father of Spock, is going to have a role on the show and that he would be played by actor James Frain. Now, another character who first appeared in the original ’60s series will stop by to say hello…and he’ll be played by Rainn Wilson.

The CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory is currently in the middle of its 10th season. Right now the network is trying to negotiate a deal to give the popular show starring Jim Parsons a two-season renewal, and CBS CEO Les Moonves says they’re “on the two-yard line” with deal. If for some reason that doesn’t happen, fans will still be getting more of The Big Bang Theory, just not in the way they think.
CBS has just closed a deal to give The Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon a straight-to-series order for the upcoming 2017-2018 season. However, this show will have a different format from what The Big Bang Theory fans are used to, and a former Marvel director will be behind the camera for it. Read More »
While James Corden‘s most viral contribution to late night television is undoubtedly Carpool Karaoke, which will be getting its very own series soon on Apple Music, he’s also known for having some fun recreating the movies of some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
The Late Late Show has seen James Corden team up with the likes of Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Tom Cruise and Arnold Schwarzenegger to deliver cheap and quick recreations of their most iconic roles. But no actor who has taken on the role call challenge has had quite as expansive a body of work as Samuel L. Jackson. Even in 11 minutes, they don’t even come close to recreation all of Samuel L. Jackson’s movies, but they did remember to include his bit part in GoodFellas, so that’s gotta be worth something.
Watch James Corden attempt to recreate a plethora of Samuel L Jackson movies in 11 minutes. Read More »

It’s been a rough voyage for Star Trek: Discovery, but cameras are now rolling on CBS’ grand return to the greatest science fiction series of all time, and I’m ready to start feeling optimistic. And if the goal of this new video, which showcases footage of sets, uniforms, and concept art from the show, was to get me unbearably and unreasonably pumped that another proper Star Trek series is on the way…mission accomplished.
