A young man’s father heads off into space to look for intelligent life. He never returns. Decades later, that young man decides to journey across the galaxy in search of his father. That’s rumored to be the plot of a new scifi film called Ad Astra, and writer-director James Gray just landed his second star.
So it’s come to this. Blade Runner fans have debated for decades whether or not Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) was a replicant.

If you own an Xbox One S or any other 4K Blu-ray player, and want to see just how nice your TV can look, The Martian is on sale for just $13 for Prime members. This movie looks gorgeous in any resolution, so I can’t even imagine how much it’ll pop in 4K.
Just days after the shocking news of Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s departure from the Han Solo spinoff movie, it seems like a decision has been made on who’s coming in to replace them. And it’s pretty much the one director everyone thought it was going to be.

Even before co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the Han Solo movie, they didn’t talk about the film in public a lot. One place they did was at last year’s Star Wars Celebration, and reading the quotes now is very weird.
The Hollywood Reporter just posted a great, in-depth oral history of Predator. But what stuck out the most was just how bad things got for Richard Chaves, who played Poncho. Specifically, he spoke about his run-ins with nature, which he shared using perhaps too much detail.
Lego’s third feature-length animated film, The Lego Ninjago Movie, doesn’t hit theaters until September. But the toymaker has already started to reveal a new series of sets based on the movie, which feature ninjas, giant robots, and... wait, do you really need anything else in a movie?
The still atrociously named “Sony’s Marvel Universe” is getting bigger. Sony has lifted the lid off the future of its Spider-Man movies after Homecoming, and it seems like Peter Parker is going to have a lot on his plate, with not just future MCU adventures, but some of his most iconic foes coming to the silver screen.
This weekend makes the 35th anniversary of Blade Runner—and to mark the occasion, we’ve gotten an excellent new behind-the-scenes featurette about its sequel from the cast and crew, which sheds some light on the world of 2049 Los Angeles, as well as how Blade Runner 2049 is trying to set itself apart from the original.

Here’s some late-in-the-day Star Wars news: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) will no longer be directing the much-anticipated standalone Han Solo film. The reason given is the old standby “creative differences,” according to Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy.
Remember 10 years ago when director Michael Bay took the simply designed cartoon Transformers of the ‘80s and made them into ultra-complex, shiny beings with so many moving parts they made no sense? Well, what Bay did to the Transformers themselves is what he’s done to the fifth film in the franchise, The Last Knight.
Back before Black Widow scissor-kicked her way into our hearts, or Mary Jane upside down kissed Spider-Man, or Storm showed us what happened to a toad struck by lightning, back even before a hemotologist saved a daywalking vampire in Blade, there was an actress helming a major Marvel motion picture.

A desperate woman trapped on a smooth precipice tries to figure out how to keep from plunging into an abyss of certain death. The premise of writer-director Tim Egan’s Curve is simple—with just the right pacing, doses of body horror, and bursts of music—and the end result is almost uncomfortably suspenseful.
