Linda Hamilton hasn’t appeared in a Terminator film since 1992’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day. That’s about to change with this year’s Terminator: Dark Fate, which will see Hamilton once again play the ass-kicking Sarah Connor. Getting Hamilton back is a big deal, and certainly makes Dark Fate look more interesting than all the other lackluster Terminator sequels. It was a big deal to Hamilton as well, and she took it seriously – the actress recently revealed she flat-out refused to say certain lines in the script that were intended to soften her character.

Quentin Tarantino is retiring. Unless he isn’t. He’s also making a Star Trek movie. Maybe. The fact is, no one really knows what the future holds for the filmmaker, but there’s plenty of speculation – most of it from Tarantino himself. The latest film to add to the “maybe” pile is Kill Bill Vol. 3, something Tarantino has toyed with in the past. In a new interview, the director revealed that he and star Uma Thurman had very recently discussed Kill Bill 3. Whether or not it actually gets made is another story.

Bobby Miller’s Critters Attack! honors its meager franchise traditions, and your interpretation of that statement depends on your level of adoration of low-budget puppeteering. My reaction to the Crites’ latest feeding frenzy is similar to my reaction to Phantasm: Ravager: it has minuscule funding, blatant attempts at nostalgia recreation, and purposeful “so bad it’s good” vibes which prove you cannot force cult acclaim.
Then again, as with Ravager, 2019’s fuzzball fury will give Critters guardians precisely what they adore. New fanbase breeds won’t start championing this Gremlins knockoff, but don’t be surprised when familiarized audiences leave satisfied. Read More »
On the Hall H stage during the Marvel Studios panel last Saturday night, actress Tessa Thompson got a big cheer when she said that as the king of New Asgard, her character, Valkyrie, “needs to find her queen” in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. That was confirmation that we’ll get to see deeper aspects of her life explored on screen in the new sequel, and specifically that the movie will address her bisexuality after a scene that alluded to it was cut from Thor: Ragnarok.
And Valkyrie isn’t the only LGBTQ Marvel Studios character on the horizon: Kevin Feige confirmed that more were on the way, and we won’t have to wait long to see them.

Natalie Portman is playing a female Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder, and before anyone whines that she’s too scrawny to wield Mjolnir, the Oscar-winning actress has teased that she’ll be getting “jacked” for the role. The actress will make her triumphant return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after not being prominently featured in a Marvel movie since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, and a new report says that her deal to appear in this new sequel was signed six months ago.

After Comic-Con offered up our first look at a new Sith Trooper, a new TIE Fighter, and the promise of a comic book fleshing out the story of the Knights of Ren, it seemed like we might be done with revelations from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But there’s one last tidbit, albeit a vague one, that came from director Kevin Smith over the weekend.
In case you hadn’t heard, Kevin Smith had a heart attack early in 2018, and it prompted him to lose a bunch of weight and start living a healthier lifestyle. Upon his recovery, J.J. Abrams promised to have Kevin Smith see the set of The Rise of Skywalker. Since Abrams is a man of his word, Smith visited Pinewood Studios across the pond, but there’s one set that he decided to avoid seeing, because it was the setting of The Rise of Skywalker’s final shot, and he was told it will “melt your mind.” Read More »
Hasbro’s Black Series has been making waves for a few years now by making 6-inch action figures (and a few other collectible items) from the Star Wars saga. They’re much detailed than the smaller, standard 3 and 3/4 inch figures that have been popular since the original movie released the first merchandise following the original Star Wars, and they’re intended for more grown up collectors. But they’re about to release one of the coolest items yet, and it’s not an action figure.
Along those same lines of the detailed Black Series action figures, Hasbro has also been releasing a series of adult-sized helmets based on the costumes for Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, and Stormtroopers, as well as X-Wing pilots helmets for Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker. Now they’re bringing the helmet the the Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett to shelves, and it looks absolutely incredible. Check out the Star Wars Black Series Boba Fett helmet below. Read More »

Even though it seemed like the numbers wouldn’t add up for Avengers: Endgame to surpass James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all-time, Kevin Feige announced that Marvel Studios would soon be taking the crown during their presentation at Comic-Con yesterday. But Walt Disney Studios chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn made it even more official by releasing a statement announcing that Avengers: Endgame was taking the top spot. Read More »
