The Dark Tower (Trailer)

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.

Invasion of the Droids

Invasion of the Droids

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.

Time Chicken

The protagonist in Nick Black’s darkly comic claymation short sets out to answer the divisive question: “Which came first – the chicken or the egg?” Unfortunately, his proposed experiment to solve the perplexing riddle has unintended consequences.

MST3K x Stranger Things

MST3K x Stranger Things

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.

War for the Planet of the Apes (Trailer)

War for the Planet of the Apes (Trailer)

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!

Time Trouble

Time Trouble

(PG-13: Language) A man travels back in time to prevent a King from being assassinated, thus altering the course of time. Unfortunately, there’s a bit too much exposition standing between our time traveler and a successful mission in TomSka’s silly sketch.

Alien: Covenant: Meet Walter

Alien: Covenant: Meet Walter

In case you were wondering why Prometheus‘ android butler David is back and in great shape in Alien: Covenant, he’s not. Meet Walter. He’s one of Westworld’s Weyland-Yutani’s latest synthetic humanoids.

Tears in the Rain

Tears in the Rain

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.

Guardians Vol. 2 (Super Bowl Spot)

Guardians Vol. 2 (Super Bowl Spot)

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.

Stranger Things 2 (Teaser)

Stranger Things 2 (Teaser)

The Super Bowl had lots of exciting moments from halftime on, but none that gave us such childlike giddiness as the first teaser spot for the second season of Stranger Things, which hits Netflix on 10/31/17. Bonus points to Eggo for their Facebook post.

The Philosophy of Get Schwifty

The Philosophy of Get Schwifty

Working Robocop ED-209 Costume

Working Robocop ED-209 Costume

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.

Doctor Who: Everything Ends

Doctor Who: Everything Ends

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.

The Weight of Gravity

It’s been a couple of years since Gravity first blew our minds. Filmscapel looks back at Alfonso Cuarón’s masterwork, which deftly combined tension, incredible cinematography, and groundbreaking visual effects, accentuated by a shockingly minimal plot.

Dalek Guided Meditation

Dalek Guided Meditation

Heading back to work after the holidays can be pretty stressful. So sit back, put on your headphones, and decompress a bit with the help of some of the universe’s greatest foes. If that didn’t work, try this.

The OA (Trailer)

A new Netflix series about a girl who vanishes and reappears many years later, as she recalls the strange and mystical experiences she encountered while she was gone. We’re just excited to see Herschel from The Walking Dead on screen again. Premieres 12/16/16.

The Fisherman

The Fisherman

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.
