Avatar 2 Release Date

Avatar made an enormous impression when it opened in 2009, smashing box office records and earning fawning praise for its then-cutting-edge visuals and eye-popping world design. 20th Century Fox quickly announced plans to release Avatar 2 in 2014… but so far, all that’s really come of the project is story after story about release date delays. As of now, Avatar 2 is scheduled to finally open in 2018. Maybe. If they’re lucky.

So in the meantime, 20th Century Fox has found other ways to bring audiences back to Pandora, and therefore keep that sweet franchise money rolling in. We’ve talked at length about the Avatar land currently under construction at Walt Disney World, and shown you photos from the Cirque du Soleil show. But if you don’t feel like shelling out for those, you’ll soon have another, more accessible option. Avatar is getting turned into a massively multiplayer mobile strategy game from Kabam.  Read More »

Game of Thrones season 6 finale recap - Sept of Baelor

As they say at the Wall, our watch has ended. Well, at least for the next several months. Game of Thrones concluded its sixth season earlier this week and since then there’s been rampant speculation about what’s coming in season seven. Who’s in power, and who’s on their way down? What does the confirmation of a certain fan theory mean for a certain character, and what other fan theories might come into play next season? How will the new alliances upend the old power structure? And where the hell is Gendry? Has he just been rowing for the past three seasons?

And here’s another question: What do the people who actually make Game of Thrones have to say about what’s coming up next? In a post-finale interview, showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff teased the next big threat to the Seven Kingdoms, and revealed roughly how many hours we’ve got left in Westeros. (MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD for the most recent episode.)  Read More »

Microbe and Gasoline clip

The U.S. rollout of Microbe & Gasoline has been approaching so quietly, you’d be forgiven for not realizing Michel Gondry had a new film at all. But he does, and it’s coming to our shores this weekend, and based on the footage we’ve seen so far it looks pretty damn adorable.

Ange Dargent and Théophile Baquet play Daniel and Théo, or as they are better known, Microbe and Gasoline. They’re teenagers in a Parisian suburb who feel like total outcasts until they find each other and become fast friends. Soon enough, the boys hatch a plan to run away from home in a ramshackle car constructed out of junk to look like a tiny cottage. Audrey Tautou also stars, as Microbe’s mother. If you dig Gondry’s sweet, offbeat style, this looks like one worth checking out. Check out a new Microbe and Gasoline clip below.  Read More »
