Just last month, some bad news came from the set of The Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Leading actor Dylan O’Brien was injured during production when a stunt went wrong. There were conflicting reports on the severity of his injury, with one report saying he had several broken bones, either fracturing his cheek bone or orbital socket.
The Maze Runner: The Death Cure will now shutdown production indefinitely. Dylan O’Brien’s injuries are reportedly more severe than initially expected, and he needs more time to recover before returning to work. Get more details on The Maze Runner The Death Cure delay after the jump. Read More »

The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.
Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set. Check out the Short Circuit LEGO below! Read More »
Last year, director 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott found plenty of success and critical acclaim with their sci-fi survival drama The Martian. The film ended up landing a Best Picture nomination as well as a Best Actor nod for Matt Damon. Now a little more drama is coming to the red planet with Approaching the Unknown, a new sci-fi thriller that sends Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Kick-Ass) on a one-man, one-way mission to Mars. In the trailer, he says he’s going to Mars to live, but he might also be going there to chill until the bad taste from The Brothers Grimsby has washed away.

We know that the next trailer for Star Trek Beyond is set to arrive on May 20 and will be revealed as part of a larger “fan event” that will include a Q&A with the cast and director Justin Lin. After all, it’s Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary – this is the perfect excuse to go big. But since that date is still weeks away and you may very well be thirsty for anything and everything related to the next film in the greatest science fiction series of all time, you can pursue a new batch of photos that have shown up online.

Black Mirror is already a perverse and pitch-black riff on The Twilight Zone, so why shouldn’t it steal directors from a film series that also seems to be borrowing a thing or two from Rod Serling’s iconic television show? 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg will helm an episode of the popular science fiction anthology series’ third season, which was wooed away from the U.K.’s Channel 4 by Netflix last year. This certainly feels like good news, as Trachtenberg is the kind of director who should be able to make Black Mirror‘s blend of sci-fi, horror, and perverse satire sing.

Like with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, production on Star Wars: Episode 8 has managed to keep its veil of secrecy almost completely intact. Other than distant photographs of the sets being constructed in Ireland and blurry photos of aliens and stuntmen in Dubrovnik, Disney and Lucasfilm’s investment in extensive security (which reportedly includes drones designed to take down other drones equipped with cameras) has paid off. So far. Filming isn’t done yet.
Our best look at the film’s sets so far have come from director Rian Johnson, who occasionally shares behind-the-scenes images on his social media. Now, he’s shared two new images and announced that filming had officially reached the halfway point.

This summer marks 20 years since Independence Day hit theaters, making a blockbuster star out of Will Smith and delivering one of the most fun, exciting alien invasion movies of the decade, possibly ever. So obviously it’s the perfect time for the sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence to arrive. But since 20 years has passed in the narrative timeline since the events of original film, there are a lot of gaps that need to be filled in.
We already know that by the time the sequel has begun, the world has established Earth Space Defense, a new program designed to use alien technology left behind to advance our own civilization and prepare a better defense in case they ever come back. Now a new Independence Day Resurgence viral video has a faux news broadcast that details what has happened since we defeated the aliens in what has been called the War of 1996. The video celebrates the heroes of the war, discusses the founding of ESD and more.
