Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Jason Isaacs, and Doug Jones star in the first new Trek series in over a decade. It takes place in the pre-Kirk era, and is being told from the perspective of the ship’s first officer. The pilot hits CBS, followed by a full season on CBS All Access.
Who knows if it’ll translate to the big screen, but we’re excited to see Idris Elba as The Last Gunslinger, and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black in this adaptation of Stephen King’s classic series of science fiction novels. Oh please, oh please let this be good.
During Star Wars Celebration, a veritable army of robot builders got together in one room to let their R2-D2s, BB-8s, and other assorted droids meet each other. It’s like a dog park for droids, and it should be open every day of the year. Kudos to Michael McMaster for the video.
To celebrate the relaunch of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Jonah, Crow, and Tom Servo riffed on another Netflix hit. It’s weird to see them making fun of something good, but that just gives them plenty of new opportunities if they ever, god forbid, run out of bad movies.
Woody Harrelson leads an army of humans hellbent on wiping out the apes, and Caesar must stand up and lead apekind into an epic battle for survival in Matt Reeves’ follow up to his excellent Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Opens 7/14/17. APES! TOGETHER! STRONG!
We have a while to wait for Blade Runner 2049, so in the meantime, sit back and drink in Christopher Grant Harvey’s outstanding fan film that does a great job capturing the tone of its source material, and is at once familiar and fresh. Amazing that they shot this for just $1500.
The 60-second extended ad spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gives us more Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Yondu, Rocket, and Baby Groot, along with a little facetime with Mantis, and more than an inkling that Fleetwood Mac will make the soundtrack this time.
(PG-13: Language) After looking at Rick and Morty’s many references, Wisecrack delves into the show’s exploration of human nature and belief systems peppered throughout Get Schwifty, in which giant heads descend from the heavens with less than altrustic motives.
For their scene in the feature-length Robocop remake, Ghostlight built this fantastic replica of the villanous, but flawed ED-209 robot from the original Robocop. But instead of just being a static mockup or a scale model, this one is full size, and can be walked in by a puppeteer.
Anyone who watches Doctor Who knows that their favorite doc will eventually die and come back to life with a new actor in their place. The Garo Studios looks at the more recent Doctors’ facing their inevitable fates. Capaldi isn’t long for the universe either.
A brief look Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat’s final season, as Doc No. 12 is joined by a new companion – a young woman from planet Earth (surprise) named Bill, played with Spice Girl like enthusiasm by Pearl Mackie. Bonus points for the Wilhelm Scream at 0:32.
Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival) takes over the directorial reins from Ridley Scott for the long-awaited sequel to one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time. We know little about the plot yet, but we can’t wait until October 2017 to see this one.
Even if its story is a bit enigmatic, we love the look of Luke Saunders‘ colorful animated short film about a future in which sea creatures seem to have evolved into some sort of flying species who thrive off of electricity. It also turned us on to the cool new sci-fi channel DUST.
