You know that moment. The moment in a movie that you geek out over as soon as you walk out of the theater. The one that gives you goosebumps, or makes you whisper “Holy crap” as it’s happening. Those are the “wow” moments, and we’ve collected the best ones from 2015.
Jurassic World is now on track to beat the box office records of both Avengers films, and it has a shot at beating Avatar. This is terrible, awful news for anybody who loves movies. Not because Jurassic World is a horrible movie—it’s actually pretty fun. But because this means a lot more pandering sequels.
This was probably inevitable, but it's still pretty perfect. Caine Wise, Channing Tatum's part-canine character from Jupiter Ascending, acts out his own version of the famous Three Wolf Moon t-shirt. And you can buy it to wear or hang on your wall.
We have an absolutely insane collection of Jupiter Ascending concept art that shows completely different concepts for the already astounding characters designed for this space odyssey. The Wachowski's original vision for Balem (Eddie Redmayne) was bananas.
Jupiter Ascending has some of the most stunning visuals we've ever seen in a space opera. The movie's spaceships are just stunning, and unlike anything else in movies or elsewhere. We talked to lead designer George Hull, and he told us how Brutalist architecture and Siamese fighting fish influenced these ships.
Jupiter Ascending isn't just a mediocre film. It's also self-indulgent, and in love with its own excesses. It's like the sick love-child of Zardoz and Fifth Element. But what's really odd about Jupiter is that it wants to criticize opulence and selfishness, and yet it's a movie that thinks "more" is always "better."
Lovely though it is in person, Chicago can seem like a grim, grey place on film. So when the Wachowskis decided to film key moments of their new movie Jupiter Ascending there, they didn't just wait for the most beautiful light—they built a whole new type of camera to capture it.
Co-directors Andy and Lana Wachowski only had six minutes every day to shoot a single giant chase scene for their space opera Jupiter Ascending. Why could they only film the chase at one time of day? They explain in our exclusive interview. Plus they tell io9 why they're so obsessed with telling stories about "The…
Warner Bros. is clearly worried about Jupiter Ascending. Sure, it looks gorgeous, but it also looks so damn weird — which is presumably why WB released this three-minute trailer just a week before the film's release which seems to explain everything that's going to happen in the movie, in chronological order.

We know very little about Lana and Andy Wachowski's next scifi feature Jupiter Ascending. We know it stars Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum as a dog person trained to find her in the future. But we did not know it was this beautiful. Take a look at this massive gallery of gorgeous looks into the world the Wachowskis…

Final data isn't in, but it looks as though overall U.S. box office was down in 2014 from 2013 — although the major studios still made over $10 billion domestically. Most significantly, the number of tickets sold dropped 6 percent, to the lowest amount since 1995.
Three big names are in the running for a huge role in Doctor Strange. James Gunn says the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers won't cross over too soon.

The Scream series will remake a famous moment. And a ton of information on Once Upon a Times' villainous plans. Spoilers now!
It never fails lately. We actually get a movie that's a new story, instead of a rehash or continuation of a venerable tale. And people immediately start piling on, pointing out all the stuff in it that's been done before. But just because something contains story elements we've seen before doesn't mean it can't be new.
This spoiler-filled trailer to the Wachowskis' long awaited Jupiter Ascending drama literally spells out the entire premise. And I'm still kind of confused. Earth is part of an industry? Whatever, Eddie Redmayne is fabulous.
I don't know if Jupiter Ascending—the new movie from the creators of The Matrix—is going to be incredibly good or impossibly bad, but one thing is sure: The amount of sci-fi visual porn in this trailer alone has sent my brain into overdrive. The design seems phenomenal.
Alex Winter shares more details about Bill and Ted 3. Tons of info from the season premiere of The Walking Dead, including what's up at Terminus. Simon Kinberg talks the "darkness" of Star Wars Rebels. Plus Frankenstein, Patient Zero, Outlander, Agents of SHIELD and Doctor Who. Spoilers now!
The early trailers for the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending have always looked impressive, but they seemed like they wanted to bludgeon people into theaters by assaulting them with an overabundance of chaotic scifi/CG action. But this third trailer is the first one to makes me want to see the movie.
