It doesn’t matter if a movie’s good, bad, or just mediocre—any film can have a moment that makes your jaw drop in awe or tears come to your eyes, or makes you shudder in irritation and disgust. Here are all the greatest and worst individual moments from the cinematic releases of 2017.
If nothing else, 2017 has been a truly great year for science fiction and fantasy films. While many have been major motion pictures that no one could have avoided hearing about, there were also several standout movies that may have fallen through the cracks. We’re here to fix that. Here are the fantastic films you may…
When scientists discovered an Earth-like planet orbiting our closest star, Proxima Centauri b, Gizmodo said it could have been the discovery of the century. But today, scientists are announcing a new exoplanet only 11 light years away that could be even more important.
What was life really like here on planet Earth before animals were big enough to leave fossils behind? How did living things turn from dinky capsules of genetic material into the intelligent, complex organisms that do things like fart and type curse words into posts on the internet? Scientists think they’ve found the…
The new scifi film Life didn’t exactly light up the box office this weekend, and that’s a shame. If audiences had turned out, they would have seen an entertaining movie with an ending that blew their damn minds.
The xeno-organism at the center of the new space thriller Life starts off microscopically small. By the time the movie’s over, it will probably generate some giant-sized nightmares.
Daniel Espinosa’s highly anticipated sci-fi thriller, Life, isn’t just 2017's answer to Alien—it’s much scarier. Unlike most movies in the genre, Life is terrifying because it taps into legitimate concerns about contaminating Earth that even NASA, ESA, and other space agencies haven’t entirely figured out—the fear…
Everyone involved with the new film Life knows exactly what you were thinking. You saw the trailer—people in space being chased by a menacing creature—and immediately assumed, “Great, someone’s ripping off Alien.”
Most of the people interested in seeing Life, the astronaut thriller out on March 24, probably have certain expectations based on the movie’s familiar premise: human beings encounter extraterrestrial organism, terrifying things ensue, just as in Alien, Predator and other classics. But while that most basic plotline…
Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick discuss Deadpool’s reaction to Cable. Zack Penn stresses plans for a new Matrix aren’t a reboot or a remake. Andrew Kreisberg promises next season’s Flash villain will be something different. Plus, a haunting new poster for The Dark Tower, and clips from Power Rangers and The Walking Dead…
For superhero film fans, few titles are more shudder-inducing than Spider-Man 3. Which is probably not the thing the marketing team at Sony was going for when creating a new trailer for killer alien film Life, but it oddly works. Let us explain.
Odds are, touching unknown things in space? Not gonna go well.
We’re about to get bombarded with Super Bowl commercials, trailers and more from some of the biggest films of the year. But Sony hopes you remember one more than the rest: Life.
Hearing you loud and clear, Jake Gyllenhaal. Loud and clear.
Good news, everyone: Biologists have discovered a species of marine worm that, when still in its larval stage, is nothing more than an algae-gobbling, disembodied head.
From a strictly mineral standpoint, life on Earth is pretty ridiculous. Some carbon is organized, moves around a little and then falls back apart. Not so coincidentally, that’s also the basic premise of artist Agelio Batle’s Ash Dancer, which features a big-ass skeleton shaking around until it completely disappears.
Discovering the first extraterrestrial lifeform in our solar system will probably be a wonderful thing. What happens next, according to next summer’s big science-fiction film, won’t be quite so wonderful.
Losing someone is painful and world shattering and can almost feel impossible to endure. There’s no real way to prepare yourself and there’s no quick way to get over it but the fact is, everyone is going to have to deal with it at some point in their life. This video from CineFix is ostensibly a list about the 21 best…
We’ve all seen it—someone hands you their phone and you notice that it’s called “Bob.” Or you see a list of possible devices you can connect to and every single one has a weird name. Or you’re the one scrambling to explain why you’ve renamed your work computer “Big Bad Caesar.”
They haven’t found alien life out there yet, but following the first successful in-space DNA sequencing, astronauts have a better way to look for it.
