Sure, it might be the 10th anniversary of superhero movie benchmark The Dark Knight, but the DC movie universe isn’t exactly the place to be these days. That’s the conceit of the star-studded skit from last night’s kickoff of Conan’s annual trip to Comic-Con, anyway, as Conan O’Brien’s Caped Crusader glumly sidles up…

Although we carried exclusive coverage of its comic book predecessor just the other day, it’s been a few months since we’d gotten any new or concrete information about Netflix’s latest superhero show, Umbrella Academy. Based on a series of comics by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, the series focuses on a fractured family…

Damn it, people, can’t Quentin Tarantino have one thing go right lately? First, his personal patron Harvey Weinstein gets rightly brought down for his abhorrent treatment of women (with the director admitting he “knew enough” about Weinstein’s behavior to do more than he did); then, Tarantino himself comes under fire

Welcome back to Trailer Happy Hour, where sometimes we just can’t keep our bloodlust in check. Today we’ve got three different flavors of cinematic violence on-deck—from satirical, to dramatic, to low-budget but alluringly shiny—so let’s dive right in.

Last week, one of our Trailer Happy Hour roundups included a teaser for The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, a ‘90s-set coming-of-age story starring Chloë Grace Moretz as a girl escaping from a gay conversion camp with her friends. As we noted then, it seemed to be more about lame religious people trying to stamp down a…

Asked recently to describe Alexander McQueen to a friend with little knowledge of fashion, the best I could think of was to say, “He basically gave Lady Gaga her entire aesthetic.” That’s, of course, an overly simplistic way of looking at it, not least because Gaga isn’t the only one whose approach to sartorial…

Hey, you guys remember malls? Those places with the Spencer Gifts and Fashion Bugs and K-B Toys? Remember how we used to fart around there for a few hours while dad melted into the massage chairs at The Sharper Image?

It’s clear that the producers of upcoming kaiju-smash-em-up Godzilla: King Of The Monsters know that they’ve got more assets on their side this time than just a big lizard with a dyspeptic temperament; why else would they be careful to center the first teaser trailer for their new film around Millie Bobby Brown,…

As we dive headfirst into the dog days of summer—so named because dogs are the hottest animal, scientifically—it becomes increasingly important that we never go outside, for any conceivable reason. Luckily, there are now numerous libraries of online content—and more, every day!—out there to ward off the dreaded…

Here we are again, back in Greece, enchanted land of weathered baby-blue everything and swarthy fishermen who smack their chests and shout “Opa!,” for another two hours of watered-down soap opera and ABBA karaoke. What did these creators of catchy ’70s Europop par excellence do to deserve not one, but two dull jukebox…

With Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft basically created the Netflix of video games, and it’s a great deal at its usual $10 per month. But for a limited time, that same $10 will get you three months of the service.

What good is technology if we don’t use it to better ourselves as a species? That was likely the question running through the mind of Reddit user duncsmaps while they spent an untold amount of time recreating the entire apartment set from Friends using the Far Cry 5 engine. Upon completion of their masterwork,…

Twenty-two years into its run, the Fantasia International Film Festival is the grande dame of North American genre film festivals.

It’s been 10 years since Christopher Nolan unleashed The Dark Knight, which has more or less been praised as the best Batman movie, if not the best superhero movie of all time.
