It’s been six years this December since James Cameron brought his blockbusters sensation Avatar to theaters, and fans have been patiently waiting for the sequels to begin hitting the big screen. Sadly, we’ve still got a little over two years before the first of three sequels arrives in the winter of 2017. But a new partnership should help hold fans over.
At New York Comic-Con this weekend, Dark Horse Comics announced a new deal with 20th Century Fox to create an Avatar comic book series with a variety of “new storylines from the past, present and the future world of Avatar.” Read More »

The upcoming revival of The X-Files is an actual thing and not a figment of our collective imaginations. Yes, there is actually new X-Files material set to air on televisions that don’t exist entirely inside our minds. We know this because there are photos from the set and trailers online. However, we also know this because Fox is releasing a new Blu-ray box set collecting the entire original series and the collection’s box art has officially been revealed. It’s like they wanted to capitalize on our excitement and get us to purchase an expensive and grandiose object to celebrate our obsession!
Yep, they’ve got us. Check out the art for the X-Files box set and other details after the jump.

This weekend brings a wonderful meshing of horror and comedy with some real heart in the form of The Final Girls. The meta flick takes Taissa Farmiga and throws her into the world of the horror movie that her mother (Malin Akerman) made famous, making for a reunion that is simultaneously thrilling, touching and hilarious. It’s like Last Action Hero, but way better.
And to help get the word out about this seriously incredible movie that will be in limited theaters and available on VOD starting Friday, October 9th, we’ve got an exclusive batch of character posters designed by Alex Pardee, the brilliant artist who has delivered awesome work for The World’s End and Attack the Block previously.
Plus, if you need anymore convincing (other than the awesome trailer), director Todd Strauss-Schulson checked in with us to make sure you know that this movie is all about. And if that’s not enough, we had a great interview with him back in August that you should definitely take the time to read. Otherwise, check out The Final Girls posters below! Read More »

Once upon a time, Mondo sold T-shirts in a tiny shop in the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in Austin, Texas. Now, they’re one of the most popular purveyors of high-end pop culture art on the internet, with their posters and collectibles literally selling out within seconds of going on sale. The company had grown big enough to host its own convention, so lo and behold, MondoCon made its debut in 2014. This year, the con only grew bigger, expanding its size and its offerings. Simply looking in its general direction is enough to drain your wallet.
For a look at every MondoCon 2015 poster and piece of art, as well as thoughts on the con itself, keep on reading!

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There’s a scene in Star Wars: A New Hope where Chewbacca and R2-D2 are passing the time by playing some kind of holographic board game. One clever move by the Astromech droid prompts and angry howl from Chewie, and after Han Solo warns the droids about a Wookie’s tendency to pull people’s arms from their sockets when they lose, C-3PO utters the famous line, “Let the Wookiee win.” It’s one of many classic scenes from the film.
More casual fans of the movie merely refer to the game as holochess, but the hardcore fans know that the game is called Dejarik, and one of those fans, Ian Martin, has been working on creating a full-size working Dejarik board that’s a 1:1 scale replica of the one we see in the film. And while it currently doesn’t have hologram technology implemented yet, it’s still pretty damn cool. Read More »
October 21st 2015 is quickly approaching and we don’t have flying cars or hoverboards, but some of the Back to the Future 2 predictions are beginning to come into reality. Earlier today we told you that Pepsi was going to produce a limited number of Pepsi Perfect bottles, and a Jaws 19 trailer was released by Universal Pictures. While companies like Lexus are trying to produce a real hoverboard, we’re still a ways away from the floating skateboards promised in the Robert Zemeckis-directed sequel.
Well, today is a monumental day in the history of the hoverboard, as the Oxford English Dictionary is finally declaring that “hoverboard” is a word. Also, while we may have to wait a few years for a hoverboard like we saw in the movie, Madrid and Valterra are teaming to release special 30th anniversary officially licensed limited edition skateboards based on the hoverboard designs seen in the film. Hit the jump for more details.
