Fans have been talking about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie for years. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor has repeatedly said he’d like to return to the role. Now, if rumors are to be believed, Disney could soon announce it as the next Star Wars Story film, perhaps as early as this weekend, during the D23 Expo. But between Marvel’s…
Director Ron Howard wants to know if we can match the Han Solo character to this closet full of costumes.
Earlier today, we shared a concept trailer that imagined what a 1990s version of Batman v Superman would look like. We got so excited casting Wonder Woman that we expanded it to other superhero flicks, like a grindhouse Logan in the 1970s, or an early 2000s The Avengers. Here’s your chance to dream up your ultimate…
Tonight’s Doctor Who sounded the cloister bells, as the Doctor stood for one last time against the Cybermen to save his closest friends, his oldest foe, and people he’d never even met before. There were shocks, there were tears, and we can discuss them all in our final weekly thread of the season!
Twenty years ago today, a book was published that changed many of our lives forever. That book was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, later renamed Sorcerer’s Stone in the U.S. It was our first taste of a wondrous world of witchcraft and wizardry that has inspired billions around the world. Here’s how that…
Tonight, Doctor Who made the Cybermen great again, after years of not knowing what to do with the show’s perennial runners-up in the “best monster” rankings. But it also delivered a dread-laden build-ups to one of the all-time great cliffhangers in the show’s history: one we have to talk about right now.
It’s been a while since a science fiction or fantasy movie had a hit single come off its soundtrack. So we’re asking: what movie singles are the best and worst?
Today is that annual barbecue-flavored festival of football games and wrist watches known as Father’s Day. It’s a time when people reach out to their father, mother, or parental figure to remind them they’re awesome (that reminds me, I still have to do that!). There are plenty of fictional papas who also inspire us,…
This week’s Doctor Who took us to the damp and dreary vistas of ancient Scotland, on the trail of a missing Roman legion... and the nasty creature that was behind their disappearance. Lets nitpicks some Picts, and talk about the rest of the episode in our spoiler-laden weekly thread!
Everyone has some kind of story or trope that they are a sucker for. That, even if they know something is going to be bad, they will watch just for that thing. We want to know what yours are! And, to keep things fair, the entirety of the io9 staff has confessed theirs, too.
Tonight’s Doctor Who took us to Mars for a bizarre crossover between Victorian England and the Ice Warriors themselves. There were moustaches, stiff upper lips, and some very weird connections to oldschool Who, but for now, let’s talk sssssssspoilerssss, Ice Warrior style, in our weekly discussion thread!
The best part of Injustice 2 for me isn’t kicking butts with Green Arrow. It’s seeing what the people whose butts I’m going to kick are wearing. If you’re like me and have been gasping and cooing approvingly every time some killer fashion pops up in the fighting game sequel, here is a place to share.
We’ve barely started the summer blockbuster season and already two movies are battling it out. Oh, not for box office supremacy. We’re talking about the worst poster of the year.
Tonight’s Doctor Who took us into a world of dystopia and fake news, only slightly different from our own due to it being caused by zombie space monks rather than, say an orange businessman. Let’s talk about the truths revealed to the Doctor and Bill in our weekly spoiler-filled chat thread!
We live in a time where everything is being resurrected and rebooted. And sometimes the end result proves the phrase “be careful what you wish for.” But sometimes it’s exactly what you need to rekindle an obsession that once ruled your childhood.
After a trip sideways into a false world last week, Doctor Who thrust itself into the here and now for this week—and after some slow-burning intrigue, it ramped up the villainous Monk’s plans all the way to 11. Let’s talk about just how the hell the Doctor and Bill will get out of this one in our weekly,…
Tonight’s Doctor Who dropped some pretty ominous warnings on the Doctor, Bill, and Nardole—portents of an imminent invasion, a perplexing ancient text killing its readers, and yes, even an answer to the season-long mystery of just who is inside the mysterious vault. Let us know what you thought of it all in our weekly…
The big superhero news of the day is that Tom Hardy will play Venom. To announce the news, Sony tweeted that the film would be part of “Sony’s Marvel Universe” but that sounds weird. Maybe even a little sad. Guys, we need to help them come up with a better name.
A Japanese ad for Star Wars: The Last Jedi makes a very intriguing claim—it says the film will include the biggest, most shocking reveal in Star Wars history. The obvious answer is that this will be the discovery of Rey’s origin, but we got to thinking... what if it isn’t?
Tonight’s Doctor Who gave us some really dark moments—and we’re not just talking about the space zombies. We need a moment to unpack that moment. You know the one we’re talking about. Take a breath and let’s jump in, shall we?
