The 45th Saturn Awards nominations have been announced. Normally the Saturn Awards winners are held in June, but this year, the genre-loving awards have been revamped thanks to shifting the presentation of the awards themselves to September. As part of this revitalization, the awards will also be partnering with a streaming site in order to get more exposure, and an announcement will be coming soon with information about where fans can watch the broadcast.
In order to accommodate this major change, the eligibility window for this year’s nominations stretches all the way back to March 1, 2018 and runs through July 7, 2019. That means you’ll see nominees ranging from Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One last year to this year’s third season of Stranger Things. That’s quite a huge window, and there are plenty to get through, so let’s check out the full list of 2019 Saturn Awards nominations below. Read More »
Even though Avengers: Endgame ended up not being able to topple James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time, Marvel Studios still has plenty to be proud of. This year’s colossal sequel, which marked the culmination of more than a decade of superhero movies, turned out to be pretty damn great, and the studio is extending its victory lap beyond the sure-to-be-adoring crowd of Comic-Con’s Hall H on a nine-city tour across the country, bringing special guests along for the festivities.

2019 has not exactly been a banner year for mainstream American films. I still have plenty of foreign titles to catch up on before the year ends, and thankfully I caught a few worthwhile indies at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to make this list a bit more interesting that it would have been otherwise. Here are my Top 10 movies of 2019 so far, with every title except one having already been released in U.S. theaters during the first half of the year (the one that hasn’t is currently slated for release this fall).

Surprising absolutely no one, Disney and Pixar were able to hold onto the top of the box office for a second weekend with Toy Story 4. The movie is still performing below expectations, but it’s not as if the movie is hurting for money.
Meanwhile, Disney and Marvel Studios also aren’t upset with the box office performance of Avengers: Endgame, which was re-released in theaters with some bonus footage after the credits this past weekend. Unfortunately, the last ditch effort to rake in some extra cash won’t be enough for the movie to topple the all-time record set by Avatar.
Find out how much the Toy Story 4 box office added last weekend and the rest of the numbers below. Read More »
This year’s climactic Avengers movie saw a parting of ways for Steve Rogers, but the Russo brothers also hint that the Avengers: Endgame ending resulted in a parting of timelines. And with that a potential “branch reality” being created from the choices by Chris Evans‘ Steve Rogers, Marvel and Kevin Feige might have some wiggle room to return to the beloved character.

We’ve officially hit the midpoint of 2019, and that means it’s time to take stock of the year’s best movies so far. This summer has been mostly unremarkable, with a few glimmers of greatness here and there, but thankfully, the rest of the year has offered some gems worth gushing about.

Below, find out my list of the 10 best movies of 2019 so far. Read More »
