If you haven’t seen Interstellar, you’ll have one more chance to catch it in IMAX this weekend when the film plays some IMAX houses on Saturday. But for those who have seen the film, here’s something worth checking out: a discussion between Rian Johnson and Christopher Nolan about Nolan’s latest film. Rian Johnson is the director of Brick and Looper, and the man who’ll make Star Wars Episode VIII. The two spoke after an Interstellar screening at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica a few weeks ago, and you can hear their Q&A below. Read More »

Disney’s marketing team has been pretty secretive about Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland, but details have a way of leaking out anyway. Today it’s thanks to Funko, which unveiled a line of Tomorrowland toys at this weekend’s Toy Fair.
The figurines reveal the movie’s major characters, including one we’ve never seen and a couple we barely know. Plus, they all come with accessories including shiny guns and a jet pack. Join us after the jump as we attempt to figure out what the Tomorrowland toys mean about the Tomorrowland movie. Read More »
The comic Enormous, by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour, has already been adapted to a new medium once, as Machinima financed a web series pilot written by André Øvredal (Trollhunter) and directed by BenDavid Grabinski (Cost of Living). But with Machinima’s changing fortunes that series didn’t go far, and now producer Adrian Askarieh has teamed with New Regency Television and 20th Century Fox Television to develop an Enormous event series.

Well, it’s not like the show got Tom Cruise to reprise his role, but Fox’s TV version of Minority Report can now boast at least one actor from the original Steven Spielberg-directed film. Daniel London, who played the Minority Report precog caretaker — the tech who helped manage the three clairvoyant visionaries in the movie — will now play that same role in the Minority Report TV series.

One of the best films I’ve seen so far this year — and, indeed, in quite a while — is only seventeen minutes long and relies on stick figures to depict its characters. Don Hertzfeldt‘s short World of Tomorrow is dazzling, devastatingly effective science fiction which introduces the young Emily as she is confronted with her genetic descendent from the far future, who shows Emily how human existence has “evolved” over centuries of technological influence.
Anyone who has seen Hertzfeldt’s other work, especially It’s Such a Beautiful Day, will be prepared for how this plays out. For those who haven’t, visualize sci-fi concepts about communication, memory and identity distilled into their purest form and brought to life with an emotional power that belies the simplicity of the film’s animation. Below, you can watch a World of Tomorrow trailer now, and you’ll be able to see the full film in March.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of the biggest films of the spring may be the latest sci-fi creator from Neill Blomkamp, Chappie. Starring Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Sigourney Weaver, the film tells the story of an artificially intelligent robot which finds a place in human society. Buzz has been pretty solid on the film, which promises to combine action, drama and intelligence in a way that could only come from the mind of the director of District 9.
When a movie features robots, explosions, rap stars and giant mechs, you can be sure the Poster Posse is going to take notice. The online art collective has been making cool representations for several recent blockbusters: Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar, Big Hero 6, etc. and now they’re tackling Chappie. Check out the new Chappie posters below. Read More »
Few objects in recent history have been more visually impactful than Apple’s iPhone. One of the men primarily responsible for that look, and the look of numerous other iconic Apple products, is Jony Ive. Ive is the senior vice president of design at Apple and “one of the two most powerful people in the world’s most valuable company,” according to The New Yorker.
The New Yorker is also where Ive revealed that he and good friend J.J. Abrams have had private discussions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only that, Abrams took one of Ive’s suggestions about the design of the film and you’ve already seen it. Read more about the Jony Ive Star Wars connection below. Read More »
Fans who want one final chance to see Christopher Nolan‘s latest film on the big screen will get that this weekend. Paramount is releasing the multiple Oscar-nominee Interstellar to select AMC IMAX Theaters on February 21. The screenings will take place at 3 p.m. local time and feature “more than 12 minutes of never-before-seen exclusive behind-the-scenes content.” That’s pretty enticing, and this will be probably your last-ever chance to see the film in IMAX. Read more details about the Interstellar IMAX re-release below. Read More »
Spring was one of the movies that had the most people talking at Fantastic Fest last year, and it was the one I was most bummed to miss. It comes from writer/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who previously made the intense and unsettling film Resolution, and features Lou Taylor Pucci as an American backpacker who meets a beguiling young woman (Nadia Hilker) in Italy… and then discovers that she has secrets that set her apart from every other girl he’s ever met. This Spring trailer is pretty great, starting off with a pretty normal tone before getting really weird. Check it out below. Read More »
