stranger things season 2 shadow monster

After what feels like a long wait, we’re finally less than a month away from Netflix’s highly-anticipated Stranger Things season 2 – or Stranger Things 2, as series creators Duffer Brothers would prefer we call it. They’re leaning hard on the whole “the second season feels like a movie sequel” vibe. And since every good sequel ups the ante in some way from the original, they’re doing the same: if you thought the Demogorgon was bad news, wait until you get a load of the “shadow monster” that will appear this season.

Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie

By now, Star Wars fans should be well aware of the impact that concept artist Ralph McQuarrie had on the franchise. George Lucas once described McQuarrie’s contribution to Star Wars as “incalculable” because of how integral the artist’s early sketches were to translating Lucas’s script into a visual guide for the talented craftspeople to be able to bring the story to life.

Some of McQuarrie’s unused designs and early ideas have been incorporated into various pieces of Star Wars mythos over the years, from J.J. Abrams bringing his art to the big screen in The Force Awakens to McQuarrie’s Darth Vader design finding its way into Star Wars Rebels. Now we know Han Solo director Ron Howard will keep that trend alive: the filmmaker has shared a photo involving a Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie easter egg that only the most eagle-eyed fans would have been able to spot. Check it out below.

annihilation set photos

Ex Machina director Alex Garland is close to releasing his next film, Annihilation, a highly-anticipated (especially by me) adaptation of the first book of The Southern Reach Trilogy. With a killer cast that includes Natalie PortmanJennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Oscar Isaac and the promise of something strange and beautiful, this could be the next surreal sci-fi classic that has everybody talking. Save for a few set photos, there’s been very little released from Garland’s new film, but now we have our first real look via an official image. See the Annihilation first look below.

Jurassic World - Indominus Rex Concept Art

When Jurassic World hit theaters in the summer of 2015, it had to at least try to match the screen presence of the majestic but deadly tyrannosaurus rex from the original Jurassic Park. That’s easier said than done, and despite having a meta sort of storyline about the fully functional Jurassic World creating a genetic hybrid beast to keep the park’s attendees interested, the so-called Indominus Rex wasn’t all that impressive. But perhaps it could have been.

Concept artist Ian Joyner recently shared a piece of concept art he created for Jurassic World, showing off an alternate design for the Indominus Rex. It’s quite the departure from the final creature we saw in the half-reboot, half-sequel, but it looks significantly cooler, in our opinion. Read More »

Maze Runner the Death Cure images

Maze Runner: The Death Cure has had a troubled production, to put it mildly. The third and final film in the Maze Runner series was originally set to be released earlier this year, but a near-fatal accident befell the film’s star and put production on hold. Now Mazer Runner: The Death Cure is set for an early 2018 release, and this new batch of photos gives us our best look yet.

See the Maze Runner The Death Cure images below.
