We’re about a couple weeks away from seeing how the wizarding world expands in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first spin-off in a new series of films that takes place before the events of the Harry Potter franchise. There’s a lot riding on this franchise starter, but Warner Bros. Pictures seems supremely confident in it with four sequels already planned, including one that will bring Johnny Depp into the fray in a pivotal role.
To keep the hype machine chugging along, the magic wands of the new key characters from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been revealed. In addition, a batch of new TV spots show off a little bit of new footage from the spin-off. Read More »
MondoCon might be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some gorgeous prints to pick up from the collectible arthouse. Mondo opened up their latest show “Home” by Jason Edmiston and Ken Taylor last month as a kick off to the art convention, and it’s on display through November 5th. But for those who can’t check out the gallery, you can get your hands on some of the prints today for movies like Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, The Birds and Metropolis.

Even if you hated the Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig (who is still hoping to get a crack at making a sequel), I think we can all be happy that the revival of the classic film franchise from Ivan Reitman resulted in the return of Hi-C’s beloved Ecto Cooler. The previously discontinued flavor of juice was something Ghostbusters fans have long wanted to see back on shelves, and back in May they got their wish in conjunction with the release of the new Ghostbusters. But sadly, it will be going away again at the end of the year. Read More »
The LEGO Death Star is one of the biggest playsets offered by the Danish building block company. The Star Wars set was actually discontinued last year, only to be re-released this year with some slight modifications that added 200 pieces and three minifigures that weren’t in the original set.
With 4,016 pieces, it’s a massive undertaking to build this set, let along paying $499.99 to actually purchase it from LEGO. But what if you could come close to the satisfaction of putting it together by watching a smooth time lapse video showing how it all comes together? Thankfully, one LEGO Star Wars fan and master builder has done just that, and you can watch it below. Read More »
One of the movies you may have missed towards the end of summer was Kubo and the Two Strings. The film came and went without much pomp and circumstance, but as yet another impressive, gorgeous stop-motion animated movie from those geniuses at LAIKA, it demands to be seen. Thankfully, the movie will arrive on home video just before Thanksgiving, making it the perfect holiday gift for that movie lover in your life.
But in the meantime, those of you who already saw Kubo and the Two Strings can try to get your hands on a gorgeous new print by artist Matt Ferguson. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

We’ll find out next year what, exactly, the Stranger Things creators mean when they promise “justice for Barb,” but until then, fans can take comfort in knowing Nancy isn’t the only one who cared about her. Brenda Wood, a real-life news anchor who made a cameo in the series premiere, has filed a report wondering what, exactly, happened to Barb… and also calling for help capturing the “vagrant juvenile” who made off with an “unprecedented” number of Eggo waffles.
And if you’re still unhappy with how the whole Barb storyline went down, now’s your chance to try and act out your own version at home. Funko has just announced a line of Stranger Things POP! Vinyl figures, which you can pre-order now. Watch the Stranger Things newscast and check out the Stranger Things Funko toys below. Read More »
Both Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo had some of their new artwork unleashed at NYCC, and they both sold out extremely fast after going on sale to the rest of the public earlier this week. But this coming weekend, fans of both artists will have another chance to get their hands on new pop culture art.
Spoke Art has a new exhibition called Super Science Fair – A Pop Culture Experiment by Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. Taking inspiration from vintage science fairs and science fiction, the new artwork is a little different than the usual pop culture art fare we’re used to seeing. You can check out some of the images from the Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo Super Science Fair, including an exclusive Dave Perillo piece paying tribute to Captain America.

Easily one of the coolest sci-fi weapons of all time is the ZF-1 from The Fifth Element. If you’re not as familiar with the Luc Besson sci-fi film starring Bruce Willis as you should be, it’s the weapon that Gary Oldman demonstrates for his alien crime partners who are trying to steal the elemental stones for him. The gun has a rocket launcher, arrow launcher, net launcher, flamethrower, ice blast, a feature that allows every bullet shot to hit the same target, and of course a self-destruct button. It’s been an object of desire for Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage to build his own for years, and now after 17 years of work, he’s finally completed it.
