The day the door of the Millennium Falcon fell on Harrison Ford, shattering his ankle, everyone thought Star Wars: The Force Awakens was doomed. But it turns out, the opposite happened. Co-writer and director J.J. Abrams recently revealed this delay helped him refocus the film’s most important relationship: Finn and…
Director J.J. Abrams and actress Daisy Ridley will forever be linked. Not just because of their work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but because Abrams gave Ridley her big break. Now, the pair are continuing their good fortune with a new movie that feels as far away from Star Wars as that galaxy far, far away.
There’s a new Star Trek movie coming out in three months—but Star Trek Beyond might as well be shielded by a Romulan cloaking device. It’s been four months since we saw the film’s first trailer, and since then the film’s marketing has gone almost completely silent. Then, this week, things only got weirder.
What more can be said about Star Wars: The Force Awakens that already hasn’t? It’s literally been a topic of conversation for years, and you’d think it would slow down eventually. Instead, it’s the opposite—especially since the film hits digital download today and we found a ton of new info in the extras.
You’ve probably seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens a few times—but on April 5, you get to discover it all over again when it arrives on Blu-ray. The disc includes a great documentary called Secrets of The Force Awakens, and we’re excited to debut an exclusive clip.
Star Trek has a proud and complicated history, including six TV shows and stories in every medium. But to a whole generation of people, it’s just two movies. J.J. Abrams’ film reboot reached the biggest audience Star Trek had seen since the 1990s. So if you only know these two films, how do you get into the rest of …
And now they move! Just after Wednesday’s still images of the deleted scenes on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray, Disney has released a teaser trailer. For deleted scenes. Only Star Wars could pull this off, but we kind of love it.
Rejoice, world, the plan to use the internet to ensure you never leave the house continues apace. Because a bunch of big Hollywood names are reportedly backing Sean Parker’s “Screening Room,” a project to let you buy movies at home the day they are released in theaters.
Yesterday, I stood on Tatooine, under two suns, and watched the Millennium Falcon land. This was the first-ever demo of Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine, the new virtual reality “experience” from Industrial Light and Magic’s ILMxLab. It was awesome—and then I got to swing a lightsaber.
We all went into 10 Cloverfield Lane wondering how it connects to the original Cloverfield. We walked out of it analyzing the totally bonkers ending, and realizing the thriller is actually a kind of heroic origin story. io9 spoke with director Dan Trachtenberg, who explained why the ending was the whole point of the…
You’ve probably heard that the new movie 10 Cloverfield Lane started out as an unrelated thriller called The Cellar (or Valencia). And then producer J.J. Abrams decided to rename it 10 Cloverfield Lane, and make it a “sister movie” to his 2008 sleeper hit. This was probably a mistake, because it underscores that this…
Are we still putting up spoiler warnings for The Force Awakens? I don’t think we should have to, but out of an abundance of caution, let me say this: There are spoilers for that film below this paragraph. Click at your own risk.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be one of the highest grossing movies of all time, but that doesn’t mean J.J. Abrams is finished using space as a canvas.

We’re just one month away from seeing Batman v. Superman, the long-awaited smackdown between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel.

Eight years after its release, the mere mention of Bad Robot’s found footage film Cloverfield is still a lightning rod. Whether people love it or hate it, everyone has a strong opinion about it. We saw that play out recently when a seemingly unrelated film was revealed to be titled 10 Cloverfield Lane, and everyone…
This is the best possible choice. Bryan Fuller—who worked on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager back in the day, before going on to create Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Hannibal—will be the showrunner of the new Star Trek TV show.
History has shown that Star Wars fans will buy anything. Food, sheets, underwear—anything with Star Wars on it sells. Well, maybe not “anything.” They seem to be pushing the boundaries with their latest creation, an electronic dance album.
