It’s been five years since SyFy brought the purposely stupid Sharknado to our screens. We’ve gotten a sequel each year since then, expanding the ludicrous B-movie’s mythology and bringing more and more D-list celebrities into the path of the shark infested funnel of death. But the joke has gone on too long, and the franchise if thankfully coming to an end.
The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time is the sixth and final installment of SyFy’s atrocious TV movie series, and the sad thing is that the kind of stuff we’re seeing in this movie isn’t too dissimilar from what unfolded in Transformers: The Last Knight. Watch The Last Sharknado trailer below and you’ll see what we’re dealing with. Read More »

Next month, you can journey back in time — not 65 million years to the Jurassic period – but 25 years, to the 1993 release of Jurassic Park.
The Steven Spielberg film that launched an indomitable blockbuster franchise is welcoming you back to the park with a theatrical re-release in honor of Jurassic Park‘s 25th anniversary. But you better run fast (and not in heels) to the box office: Jurassic Park will only be returning to theaters for three days this September.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Earlier this summer, word came out that Disney and Lucasfilm were placing the Star Wars spin-off movies on hold in the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s disappointing performance at the box office. The studio quickly came out and refuted that claim, but follow-up news basically said the same thing that the initial report did: the spin-offs are still in development, just don’t expect to hear anything official about them for a little while as Lucasfilm licks their wounds.
At the time, we heard a rumor about how one of the spin-offs was actually building sets on the Pinewood sound stages in the UK. Now, that project’s production designer has confirmed that Tatooine was the setting of the movie. Was this the long-rumored standalone film about Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Star Wars Resistance is coming this fall to Disney XD. However, we still don’t know a whole lot about the series. So far we’ve only gotten a brief synopsis of the story and a small amount of artwork from the anime-inspired series. If you’re hoping to get answers from series creator Dave Filoni, he’s not ready to spill the beans yet…and he might not always be the best person to get that information from anyway.
Dave Filoni has revealed that he won’t be quite as involved with Star Wars Resistance as he was on the previous animated series Star Wars Rebels. Of course, that makes perfect sense since now that we know The Clone Wars will be making a comeback with new episodes, and that will keep him from being the Star Wars Resistance showrunner. Find out what Filoni had to say below. Read More »

Star Trek: Discovery has found its Spock and his name is Ethan Peck. The actor, whose credits include television shows like Madam Secretary, I Ship It, Gossip Girl, and the small screen version of 10 Things I Hate About You, will strap on those iconic ears and venture where Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto have gone before in season 2 of the CBS All Access series.

In early July, we learned that District 9 and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp will be at the helm of a new RoboCop movie called RoboCop Returns. It’s both a reboot of the franchise and a direct sequel to Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 sci-fi classic, and if Blomkamp has his way, he’s going to get original star Peter Weller to reprise the role once again.

The weird and wild thing about Walt Disney World’s Pandora: The World of Avatar is that it’s a spoiler for movies that haven’t even been made yet. The theme park land, located at the Animal Kingdom park in Orlando, Florida, is “set” decades after the events of James Cameron‘s un-made Avatar sequels. Peace has come to Pandora and guests step into the roles of tourists who are allowed to visit the alien world, which is slowly recovering after the various wars with mankind.
It’s an incredible framing device for a theme park land, but it definitely makes talking about those sequels a wee-bit strange. And in a new interview, producer Jon Landau talked about the upcoming four (!) Avatar sequels, sharing film-specific details while confirming that the bonds between the films and the theme park land will continue to grow.

As the blockbuster summer of 2018 comes to an end, it appears audiences were hungry for Jason Statham and a giant prehistoric shark to give them some last minute thrills.
The Meg surprised box office experts by having a much larger opening weekend than projected. As of Wednesday last week, analysts were predicting The Meg would only rake in about $20 million domestically. But The Meg box office total ended up being over double that, so much that the movie opened larger than some of the more anticipated titles from earlier this year. Read More »
