In just over two weeks, Marvel’s Inhumans will be debuting in IMAX theaters across the country, but the early trailers don’t make it look cinematic. That’s because, even though it’s being released like a movie, Inhumans wasn’t treated like one.
Marvel and ABC’s latest TV show has been off to a rough start—from a decidedly dodgy first look, to a trailer that even the director disliked, and then to a Comic-Con panel that didn’t do enough to lift people’s skepticism. That meant when Inhumans came to the Television Critics Association press tour this weekend,…
I’d like to point out that you should watch this clip in the context that it is the first extended one released from Marvel and ABC’s latest TV show. It’s meant to convince you that Inhumans may not be as bad as the trailers have made it look. Which makes this... well, let’s just say extremely unconvincing.
ABC’s Once Upon a Time is in a state of flux. Most of the cast left the show after the end of season six, leaving just a few stars and newcomers to try and steer the ship in the right direction. Sadly, it didn’t take long for Captain Hook himself to point out a hole in the boat. We’re in for a rough ride, OUAT fans.
ABC’s newest Marvel show took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con late in the day Thursday night. The panel ended with a new, extended trailer that has a bit more action and effects, and happily, makes the TV miniseries look a bit less terrible—and finally includes a look at Medusa’s wig—er, hair in action. We have…
Alias, the spy-fi show that also included an old Italian prophet for some reason, put star Jennifer Garner in a number of wigs. But the bright red one she wore in the premiere still made the biggest impact.
Later this year, the Inhuman royal family will make its debut in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe in a new series about how they... crash land in Hawaii and struggle to blend in, or something. You can wait to watch that or you can watch this fantastic vintage cartoon about Queen Medusa instead.
If the shot of hundreds of bodies floating to the shore of a small fishing town wasn’t weird and creepy enough, what if they were the bodies of refugees fleeing from a terrible war in the future? That’s the premise behind ABC’s new mystery series, The Crossing, and it looks pretty damn intriguing so far.
Live action musicals on network TV are all the rage these days, and now ABC is entering the genre with its own weird mishmash version of The Little Mermaid. But this version will be a two-hour special event that somehow promises to meld scenes from the animated Disney classic with live musical performances by an…
Once Upon a Time has written the final page and closed the book. The Final Battle hinted at since the beginning of the show is over, and everyone has gotten their happy endings (including one person who totally didn’t deserve it). Then, why is the show coming back for another season?
Once Upon a Time is in a bit of a transition, and that’s putting it mildly. As the show gets ready to close out season six, with a just-announced seventh season on the way, we’ve learned that a bunch of the actors will not be coming back next year. Here’s everyone who’s still on board the OUAT train... and who’s…
Two popular genre shows with unclear futures just got some good news. A third did not.
I think it was pretty clear that Agents of SHIELD had left the door open for the spirit of vengeance, a.k.a. Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna), to return. The bigger question was if he would be back this season and, if he is back, how does he fit in with the current fight in the Framework?
When summer comes, it brings with it lazy days in the sun and kids free of school. It also brings a slew of TV shows, perfect for watching when it’s too hot to leave the air conditioning (which is most of the time). Here’s the io9 guide to everything our beloved nerdy genres are putting up this year.
Agents of SHIELD returned last night with an episode that takes place entirely within the Hydra-dominated simulation in the Framework. And even though everything we see is “fake,” it’s allowed the show to reflect our world in the way only dystopia can.
Since there are approximately eleventy billion time travel shows on TV right now, you could have made a bundle betting on which one would get canceled first. If you had Time After Time, ABC’s reimagining of a 1979 movie involving H.G Wells (yes) and Jack the Ripper (yes, again) traveling on Wells’ time machine (third…
After spending the week slowly eking out casting news for its Inhumans TV show, Marvel has finally announced the rest of the cast for the new ABC series. But it also buried the lede a bit, because right under that new cast list was the reveal that beloved Inhuman pooch Lockjaw will be in the series.
The star of last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD wasn’t the action or the classic “robot decides mankind is too irrational to live” moment. It was the way the show portrayed the bone-deep paranoia that comes when anyone of your friends can be evil.
Say hello to the latest live action Marvel heroes: up-and-coming actors Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt have been cast in the title roles for Freeform’s long-in-gestation Cloak and Dagger series.
American gothic gets a lot of play on TV and film. There’s last year’s mystery drama American Gothic, the upcoming horror film American Gothic, and the 1995 Sam Raimi-produced bug nut crazy TV show American Gothic. Southern gothic, the much more fun and fantastical localized form of the gothic genre, gets much less…
