A few weeks ago, Columbia Sportswear announced a high-end, limited edition line of jackets based on The Empire Strikes Back. They sold out instantly. But io9 got ahold of one and had a question: What would it look like if this jacket, and all Star Wars merchandise, was sold like it was high fashion?
The Fantastic Beasts franchise has had its own beast to contend with, after the controversial decision to keep Johnny Depp as the series’ antagonist after allegations of domestic abuse from his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard. A few weeks ago, director David Yates decided victim-blaming was his way to respond to the…
Star Wars statistics, admittedly, can be kind of boring—that is, unless they’re so batshit that you wonder what the hell is even happening. According to this latest gem of a survey, not only is Jar Jar Binks more popular than Kylo Ren but apparently, people prefer a giant slug monster over literally every character in…
Luke Skywalker is clearly in a rough place going into The Last Jedi. His new Jedi Order is gone. His nephew has fallen to the Dark Side. He doesn’t know it yet, but one of his best friends has perished. And then some random kid’s shown up on his island with his old lightsaber! But all that’s nothing compared to the…
In 2017, fake news is everywhere. It’s on your Twitter feed, on your television, it’s flung out of the Trump administration like confetti. But I’m sorry to report, readers, that fake news has wormed its way into another beloved institution: the latest printing of Harry Potter.
Riverdale has a bit of a drug problem. First, there was the maple syrup racket that actually turned out to be a racket of a more illegal nature. Now, we’ve got Jingle Jangle, the Pixie Stix-eque concoction that’s found its way into many a teenager’s bloodstream. However, Riverdale isn’t the only spot for Jingle…
Forget the Upside Down. The real strangest thing of 2017 is that the White House has chosen to get into the Christmas spirit by making the Presidential residence look like a dark alternate dimension where everything is dying and all hope is lost. I mean, it’s definitely appropriate, but it’s still a bizarre decision.
This is not as cute as Spider-Man taking a nap with some pandas. A doctored Justice League poster portraying DC’s heroes stomping, skewering, and decapitating some of the competition has been making the rounds in China, including being used as an actual theater poster and elevator ad.
Donald Trump’s presidency has seen the words “Make America Great Again”—a.k.a. MAGA—plastered all over the U.S., from placards to stickers to the infamous red hats. One of the last places you’d expect to see it, however, is on the side of a toy Transformers car in an alien language. And yet, it seems here we are.
Chances are you’ve never heard of The Untamed. It was quietly released this summer and just hit Blu-ray this week. But once you see this behind the scenes clip, we think that’ll change.
I’m gonna have to level with you, folks. Of all the headlines I expected to write today, this was absolutely not one of them.
We always talk about robots slowing taking jobs from humans, but what happens when they start competing against us in sports? That’s a problem probably no one has ever thought of... except maybe Stephon Stewart.
You know, if there’s one place I did not expect Disney’s female-character-empowering Star Wars shorts to go, it was absolutely going to be the ethical treatment of prisoners. But here we are!
Look, there’s spooking people out with your Halloween costume, and then there’s traumatising them for the foreseeable future. This Yondu mask will do the latter.
Halloween is one week away, and you know what that means: It’s time for the annual collection of utterly confusing Halloween costumes that are meant to be sexy, but are mostly just... confusing.
There is often no stranger advertising partnership between a comic book movie and a car manufacturer. Not just because the thought of superheroes who can run at superhuman speeds or fly being used to shill a car is weird, but because it often means a completely insane comic tie-in to go with it. And they’re often…
The trailer is so bonkers, I’m not sure if there are any other words necessary.
The first season of Stranger Things was such a sleeper hit going in that it’s taken the impending arrival of season two for the merchandise hysteria all pop culture sensations are mandated to have. Which brings us to this, my friends: Hasbro is making a Stranger Things card game and nothing makes sense anymore.
Blade Runner 2049 is out on Friday and it’s filled with huge surprises and revelations. Don’t worry, you will find none of those in this article, but you may enjoy guessing at them.
