Like a rebound after a breakup, HBO is hoping that its small screen adaptation of Philip Pullman‘s beloved fantasy series His Dark Materials will be able to fill the hole that Game of Thrones has left in its wake. And while matching the most popular TV show in history is a tall order for any new show, the good news is that His Dark Materials actually looks like it has such a richly-drawn fantasy world – and a big enough budget – that it might actually be able to hold its own.
The San Diego Comic-Con panel for the series is happening right now, but HBO has already shared a brand new His Dark Materials Comic-Con trailer that looks even more impressive than what we’d previously seen from this series. Check it out below.

Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink, and you’re dead. At least, you’ll be dead in the video game Doctor Who: The Edge of Time, the upcoming virtual-reality game based on the long-running BBC sci-fi series. And okay, you can probably blink (there isn’t a VR technology quite advanced enough to detect blinking yet), but you will still have to follow the Doctor’s other instructions: Don’t turn your back and don’t look away. Because if you do, you could actually lose this game.
As opposed to the other Doctor Who VR adventure that we covered earlier this year, Doctor Who: The Runaway, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is a proper VR video game that will be coming to various VR-capable consoles this fall. /Film got to play a demo of The Edge of Time at San Diego Comic-Con, and we almost got exterminated in the process.

After The Handmaid’s Tale‘s arguably most scattered and exasperating episode in last week’s “Unfit,” “Heroic” is straightforward with tracing its narrative goals while also testing its audience’s patience. “Heroic” opens on boredom and the tune of “Heaven is a Place on Earth.” After the shopping incident, June (Elisabeth Moss) is forced to keep vigil for a comatose Ofmatthew/Natalie (Ashleigh LaThrop) for weeks, maybe a few months on end – “until there’s a baby,” according to Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd).
Lydia has essentially condemned June to a dull clinical whitescaped purgatory to cleanse June of her sin. Time lapses reveal more bodies coming and going to occupy the white space around the stiffly poised June and Natalie’s body, whether it’s the Wives praying over Natalie’s womb or the Handmaids forced to pray for the baby inside it. As Gilead souls pass in or out of the hospital room, June’s mental state deteriorates under the stagnancy of events and the coma patient’s repetitious heart monitor. Read More »

Rick and Morty is coming back in a big way this fall. Not only are we finally getting the highly anticipated fourth season of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon‘s Adult Swim series, but this is the first season that’s part of the massive deal that the duo struck with Adult Swim to produce 70 more episodes of Rick and Morty, giving them security and confidence to push through each season and move right on to the next without worrying if they are going to get renewed or not.
Leading up to their forthcoming Comic-Con panel this week, Roiland and Harmon sat down to tease the upcoming forth season. While they’re keeping details pretty close to the vest, they did mention a few guest stars who will be popping up, and they also teased the return of a fan favorite character, though they lamented that just by teasing it they may already be creating anticipating that ends up disappointing fans. Man, these guys are always worried about something. Read More »

When Batman Beyond debuted on Kids’ WB in 1999, it shattered expectations for what a sequel series to the classic, critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series would be like. A dark, weird cyberpunk continuation to the landmark animated noir series, Batman Beyond became a beloved classic in its own right that was both a radical departure from the storied history of the Caped Crusader while feeling like a loving homage.
“While we wanted to keep the familiar elements…we wanted [Batman Beyond] to feel fresh,” co-creator Bruce Timm said at the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Thursday. But it’s been 20 years since Batman Beyond first premiered, and the series doesn’t feel quite as fresh as it used to. However, that will soon be remedied with the release of a long-anticipated remastered Blu-ray complete series set arriving this October. How…schway.

Right now, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is in the middle of its sixth season, but ABC has already renewed the show starring Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Jeff Ward for a seventh season. However, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb has revealed season seven will be the end.
Deadline has word on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD ending, and thankfully, the show is being allowed to go out on its own terms. For a while, many weren’t sure if Agents of SHIELD would even get a sixth season order, so it was surprising that the show landed a seventh season last fall, before the sixth season had even hit ABC. The network liked the new direction Agents of SHIELD was taking, and they wanted another season, but Jeph Loeb and the producers only said yes after decided to bring things to a close. Read More »
