Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Homecoming composer Michael Giacchino (Up) just put up a lovely 30-second video on Twitter of the orchestra currently recording the score to the film. They’re playing a wonderful arrangement of the classic theme song from the ‘70s Spider-Man cartoon, and it’s so good we can’t stop listening…
An arresting image of a “mummified” dinosaur went viral this weekend after National Geographic broke the story of the 110-million-year-old armored plant-eater, a newfound species of nodosaur whose exquisite remains are now on display in the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta, Canada.
The places that characters frequent in movies or TV often become characters themselves. Homes, hideouts, workplaces, these locations can often be as important to your love of something as the fictional people who dwell in them.
When astronomers announced the discovery of seven Earth-sized planets orbiting the ultracool dwarf star TRAPPIST-1, Earthlings immediately celebrated the possibility that one of those planetary neighbors could host life. But to physicists, TRAPPIST-1 presented a puzzle: How could those seven planets, all packed around…
It’s a truck! It’s a store! It’s the world’s biggest Rick! Adult Swim is hitting the road in “the Rickmobile,” a vehicle that will be hauling exclusive Rick and Morty merchandise under its lab coat. You can’t actually take a ride in the Rickmobile, but you can marvel at its magnificence.
Almost everyone grew up with Disney’s animated films. Heck, even our parents grew up with Disney animated films. Since the 1930s, Walt Disney and his not-so-little company have been churning out cartoon movie masterpieces for the whole family to enjoy, and this week, Mondo is celebrating all eight decades with one of…
When you go to a massive convention like Star Wars Celebration, it’s best to have a game plan. Where are you going to go first? What panels are you going to prioritize, and which merchandise do you want to make sure you don’t miss? Well, this little Jyn cosplayer had a different mission: deliver the Death Star plans…
I thought I was a big Han Solo fan, but then I saw this blaster and, well, I don’t even come close. This is a hand-crafted, DL-44 prop replica created with a level of obsession that would be scary if it wasn’t so damned impressive.
It’s been 35 years since Kurt Russell, Keith David, Wilford Brimley, and the rest of the salty McMurdo crew fought an interstellar invader in deepest Antarctica. A new book celebrating John Carpenter’s The Thing shows how inspirational the scifi horror film has become for artists with wildly diverse styles.
There’s something heartwarming about seeing your favorite science fiction and fantasy films turned into kids’ books. Morphing brutal, hard-R rated content in happy, funny ways is the trademark of artist Joey Spiotto, who’s about to debut another new series in this vein.

HAL would approve too.
Sure it’s just to advertise a new Gravity Falls book coming out, but it also features Jason Ritter in full Dipper cosplay—back, for one brief shining moment, in character. It’s wonderful.
One of the coolest details about the Spider-Man design used in Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming is its mechanical, expressive eyes—a staple of Spidey in comics and animation, but rarely attempted in live action. It works great on screen, but fans are proving adept at recreating the effect for their costumes, too.
Iron Man’s replacement in Marvel’s current comics, Riri Williams, was an MIT student before she started flying high as the Invincible Ironheart. So it’s pretty damn awesome that a group of her real-life alumni have made their own fan film about the young hero and her life at the university.
Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast opens March 17 and to celebrate they’re having a full-fledged gallery art show complete with original works, prints, and more. It’s called Be Our Guest: An Art Tribute to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and, as you can see below, the pieces are utterly gorgeous.
The genius of Captain America: Civil War is how it tells a seemingly small, personal story through such a huge, exciting framework. “Huge, exciting framework” is also a great way to describe Mondo’s poster for the film by artist Tyler Stout, which was just revealed and will be released Thursday.
If these were actual stamps, it might make a trip to the post office bearable.
The Vestron Video Collector’s Series strikes again, this time compiling all of the Wishmaster movies into one Blu-ray package. That’s right: ALL FOUR WISHMASTER MOVIES. Binge-watch this set of late-1990s/early-2000s cult-horror flicks, which range in quality from awesome to awesomely terrible, at your own risk.
