Trippy scifi love story How to Talk to Girls at Parties—directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and based on a short story by Neil Gaiman—doesn’t have a US release date yet, but this infectiously fun new UK trailer will make you hope it arrives sooner rather than later.
Despite being a potent mix of beloved author Neil Gaiman, Sherlock Holmes, and the mind-twisting world of H.P. Lovecraft, A Study in Emerald has somehow managed to largely escape adaptation since Gaiman first wrote it back in 2003. Dark Horse is finally going to be changing that next year.
Back when Good Omens first came out, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman had plans for a sequel—one that never came to pass, just like the planned movie adaptation of the novel. But now ideas from the sequel are being given new life in Amazon and the BBC’s TV miniseries remake, in the form of Jon Hamm.
As certain as the sun rises and sets, every year we get a Simpsons Treehouse of Horror special—but the 2017 edition is recruiting legendary writer Neil Gaiman. Not to pen a story, but to star in an homage to his dark fantasy novel Coraline.
Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s delightful novel about an angel and demon working together in the face of the incoming divine apocalypse is coming to live-action in 2019—but now we have our first official look at Crowley and Aziraphale.
Later this week, genre-focused streaming network Shudder will be releasing all four chapters of Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories, short-film adaptations of strange and twisted tales by the author of American Gods and Coraline.
We already knew a Good Omens miniseries was heading to Amazon next year—but now we know who’ll be starring in the Neil Gaiman-Terry Pratchett adaptation, which will run for six one-hour episodes: Michael Sheen and David Tennant. Can you guess who’ll play which role?
This Wednesday, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will finally begin their utterly bizarre-sounding new comics event, Dark Nights: Metal. It’s already promised crazy armor and even crazier Batmen, but now DC has revealed that the series is going to plunge into the deep depths of the publisher’s own back catalogue.
Even with the success of American Gods, we still may never get a Sandman movie, or even a TV series. But Neil Gaiman diehards need not despair completely, because there’s a new fan film that pays impressively exacting tribute to one of Sandman’s most brutal installments.
During his presentation at this year’s Television Critics Association press junket, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht was open about the network’s desire to keep the success it saw with the first season of American Gods moving forward as it looks to the future. Ideally, Albrecht said, American Gods would go on indefinitely.
American Gods’ debut season has spent every episode telling us that gods walk among us. The final installment of season one finally shows us how powerful they can be and just how far they’ll go to survive. Oh, and Shadow at long last has a come-to-Jesus moment. Actually, at least two come-to-Jesus moments, by my count.
We’ve known for a while that Emily Browning, who plays Shadow Moon’s (Ricky Whittle) semi-devoted wife Laura, would be showing up as another character later in the season. Now we’ve got our first look at Browning as the young and pretty thief, Essie.
Shadow Moon has been working with a mysterious con man who’s more than he seems. He might have made snow fall from the sky just by thinking about it. Now, the worst thing yet: a god who can get him arrested like it’s no big deal. American Gods is dropping that Shadow is cosmically important in some way he doesn’t…
Humans have a hard time coming to grips with death, prompting them to come up with deities and beliefs that revolve around being judged and leaving a legacy. The newest episode of American Gods offers up a poignant spin on the mythological afterlife and teases ominous consequences for those who refuse to pass over to…
This past Sunday’s episode of American Gods introduced us to Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones), a smooth-talking African trickster god who manifests in the cargo hold of a slave ship making its way from Africa to America. It’s dark, foreboding, painful, and some of the best television I’ve seen in a number of years. I had to…
Word to the wise: If you suddenly find yourself on a road trip with a celestial con man, don’t play checkers with a god who used to kill things with a sledgehammer.
The Visible Poetry Project aims to make poetry more accessible by lifting words off the page and transforming them into short films. The colorful Hate for Sale, from Dutch animator Anna Eijsbouts, is from an original poem about the seductive power of hate by Neil Gaiman. It’s read in perfectly droll tones by Peter…
The most vital thing the first episode of American Gods establishes is the importance of sacrifice. Deities need you to give up a part of yourself if you’re going to get anything out of them. Miracles don’t happen for free.
All Neil Gaiman wanted was to help fans watch the upcoming TV adaptation of his book American Gods. So he took steps to make sure they knew where they could do that. Then things went horribly wrong.
Months ago, I waffled over whether to re-read American Gods before the TV show started airing. Did I want to experience the show as its own unique thing or should I go back to the book and reacquaint myself with the plot? The decision to go back to Neil Gaiman’s modern fantasy epic won out and I feel like I made the…
