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.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day seemed like it had a happy ending. Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and John Connor (Edward Furlong) destroyed the materials that would have led to Cyberdyne creating a Terminator and eventually the artificial intelligence military system known as Skynet. But apparently changing the future will have drastic consequences, and a new Terminator: Dark Fate featurette shows Deadpool director Tim Miller is trying to bring the spirit of the first two Terminator movies to this sequel. But can he do it? Read More »
You’ve binge-watched all of the third season of Stranger Things and you don’t know what to do next. Well, Netflix can at least keep you occupied for a little while longer with a new podcast that dives into the making of the hit show’s latest season, and the first episode is already available.
The Stranger Things podcast kicks off with an episode dedicated to the creation of Starcourt Mall. Speaking with Matt & Ross Duffer, as well as many of the show’s key crew members, you’ll learn how the mall wasn’t just used as another way to tap into the nostalgia of the 1980s. In fact, Starcourt Mall allowed them to skirt around some potential logistical issues as the scope of the series (and the monsters attacking Hawkins) grew even bigger. Listen to the Stranger Things podcast below. Read More »
The Terminator franchise has been in a rocky place for a few decades, so director Tim Miller (Deadpool) and producer James Cameron need you to do one thing before you see Terminator: Dark Fate – pretend the last couple of sequels don’t exist. Literally. Their new film not only brings back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger as that famous killer cyborg, it is a direct follow-up to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring the three other films that followed entirely.
But is that enough to get audiences on board? They brought the film to Comic-Con to find out. Here’s what we learned.

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 »
During the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Terminator: Dark Fate, James Cameron popped-in via video and offhandedly dropped a piece of info we hadn’t heard before: Edward Furlong is returning to the franchise for the first time since Terminator 2. Furlong played the young John Connor in that film, and while the return of Terminator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton was well-known, Furlong’s return is a bit of a surprise. More on Edward Furlong in Terminator Dark Fate below.

Specific details about Star Trek: Picard, Patrick Stewart‘s much heralded return to the Trek universe, have been mostly kept under-wraps.

According to Kurtzman, while images so far have shown Picard on Earth, he will indeed be returning to space – “but not in a way that anyone expects.”

When a peculiar cataclysmic event creates chaos on Earth, astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) is tasked with trying to figure out what went wrong. That’s the set-up for the new movie Ad Astra, in which NASA and the military thinks this Earth-shattering event is somehow tied to a secret mission that Roy’s father (Tommy Lee Jones) embarked on 20 years ago. What follows is a psychological mystery that looks like it will warp our minds and give us a sci-fi drama on par with the likes of Arrival and Interstellar. Watch a new Ad Astra trailer below to see for yourself. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Everyone is curious about Quentin Tarantino‘s Star Trek, and it’s hard to blame them: the writer/director has never stepped into an established film franchise before, and there’s also the question of whether or not a Trek film will actually be his final movie before he rides off into the sunset of retirement. We know it would be R-rated, but what would a Tarantino-directed Star Trek movie feel like?
Turns out the answer is pretty familiar. In a new interview, Tarantino says that, despite claims to the contrary, his take on the sci-fi property actually would feel like Pulp Fiction in space. Read his comments below. Read More »
Terminator: Dark Fate hopes to hit the reset switch on the uneven Terminator franchise. Terminator creator James Cameron is involved with the series again for the first time since Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and this new movie ignores every sequel after that. As a result, a whole new timeline has been set up in the world of the films – and that means new Terminators are afoot as well. Director Tim Miller dropped some info regarding the new Terminators in a recent interview, and also teased that Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s famous T-800 is “very different” than what audiences are used to.
