Things I love: Pegafish, Moo-dusa, “Release the cracker!” Things that are clear improvements over the 2010 version of this film: Cookie Monster instead of Sam Worthington. Plus, this one comes with a lesson on focus and memory. Everything here is better than the 2010 film.
But don't hold your breath for Clash of the Titans 3. Orla Brady talks more about her "killer nun" character in Doctor Who's Christmas special. Plus, a fresh set of photos featuring the humanity at the center of Robocop. Will we finally get to the bottom of Coulson's resurrection? Spoilers now!
Tomorrow night in San Francisco, Mythbusters' Adam Savage is appearing live on stage with That Is All author John Hodgman. And we're giving away a free pair of tickets! All you have to do is answer one question: What ancient mythology do you want Savage and Hodgman to bust? (e.g., "You can't give birth through your…
The ultimate creator of movie monsters is gone. The prolific visual effects artist, and creator of our epic fantasy dreams, Ray Harryhausen, has died.
Now that The Hunger Games is breaking box office records, one thing's for sure: The CW is going to be racing forward with its TV version of Hunger Games, called The Selection. We can only hope it goes as amazingly bonkers as The CW's answer to Twilight, The Vampire Diaries. Plus if you consider Arrow to be The CW's…
Sam Worthington has grown his hair out into some kind of late 70s/early 80s disaster fluff, Liam Neeson's beard is beardier than ever, and Marilyn Manson is moaning on the soundtrack. What, you need more than that to convince you that Wrath of the Titans is going to be your new monster-based guilty pleasure? Well,…
Cute robots have been a fixture in the pop culture landscape, ever since C-3PO and R2D2 crashed on Tatooine in the original Star Wars — but there have been cute robots in pop culture for way longer. The history of cute robots is a proud and totally cuddly one, full of beeping, blooping noises.
Are Greek gods just automatically camptastic? The Immortals looks like it will push mythological glitter to its absolute limits — but there's been a long history of insanely goofy movies about Hercules, Zeus, Perseus and other Hellenistic bruisers.
Another key Dark Knight Rises cast member is spotted in New York. George R.R. Martin's other famous series gets a movie adaptation. Joshua Jackson promises the epic return of an old Fringe villain will be the best episode ever!
This marvelous little video catalogues all of stop-motion maestro Ray Harryhausen's cinema beasts in chronological order, from Mighty Joe Young to Clash of the Titans. Take a trip down memory lane and into the Valley of Gwangi.
An insane, probably false new plot synopsis suggests the mysterious J.J. Abrams movie Super 8 might be nothing like what we'd expected. We explain why casting decisions for the Clash of the Titans might affect the Superman reboot. The producer of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter talks casting and action sequences for…
The awards show dedicated to the worst movies has finally released its nominations for 2011. They've added a brand new category: Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D! Our prediction: The Last Airbender will clean house.
This was a year of hard lessons. Movie attendance and ticket sales fell. Television shows struggled and died. Book publishers faced an electronic future. And through it all, some great works of the imagination thrived. What did 2010 teach us?
The new movie Legend of the Guardians presents owls as heroic warriors fighting rival owl eugenicists. (Really.) But the owls of Ga'Hoole are just the latest in a proud tradition of fantastical owls that are alternately wise, creepy, mysterious...and awesome.
Every year Comic Con bulldozes attendees with thousands of advertisements. And while many marketing campaigns are exceptionally clever, a few are just epic fail. Here are the best of the worst of comic con's badvertising.
We loved Clash of the Titans (see io9's enthusiastic review), and our only complaint was that the 3D looked crappy. That's why it's a perfect DVD flick, because you get all the campy, fun goodness of giant monsters and none of the tacked-on 3D stuff. Now you can win a Clash of the Titans DVD if you skip over to our…
You've already admired Ray Harryhausen's breathtaking stop-motion animation and creature design in films like The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad and Jason And The Argonauts. But now, if you're in London, you can see his incredible work up close and personal.
Now that Avatar has made enough money for James Cameron to reforest Brazil, Hollywood is taking another look at science fiction love stories. Case in point: Ion, a dimension-hopping romance that all the studios turned down last year.
When you look at Jerad S. Marantz's resume, it's packed with films you can barely remember watching. Jonah Hex, I Am Legend, Clash Of The Titans, Bedtime Stories, Percy Jackson, Nightmare On Elm St....but his concept art is unforgettable.
When you look through Miles Teves' online concept art portfolio, it's hard not to feel sad about how cool Terminator 3 and Terminator Salvation, plus a Dune movie, could have looked. And his design for Spider-Man's Goblin is clearly superior.
