It’s that time again! It’s Friday. It’s October. It’s Friday the 13th. The staff of io9 is here to answer your questions. If you have spooky ones you’ve been saving, now’s the time.
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.
Tonight’s the night: for the first time since 2001, a new Star Trek series is going to premiere on television. With the first episode airing on CBS, and the first two episodes going live on CBS’s All Access streaming service, Star Trek: Discovery is poised to enter the world.
The ill-fated scifi western Firefly debuted on Fox 15 years ago today. And while the show didn’t last long on the air, Serenity herself has kept on flying. So tell us, what do you remember most about the cult classic? And, perhaps more importantly, do you feel its legacy still matters?
Today, Rian Johnson explained that a group of porgs—the adorably grumpy creatures from Star Wars: The Last Jedi that are rapidly becoming overexposed—is called a “murder,” like with crows. That is boring. We know you can do better.
Earlier today, Star Trek: Discovery revealed its own theme song—a rare, full length one in the age of the title card stings and little else. It joins a long line of esteemed theme songs in the Trek franchise, but we thought we’d throw a question to you all: what’s your favorite TV theme of all time?
Not every TV show, book, or movie starts with the name we eventually come to know it as. We didn’t see The Vengeance of Khan in movie theaters, and Nowhere didn’t come to puzzle us in the way it did as Lost would. Title changes are a weird world of what might have been—so tell us about your favorites.
The start of September is the traditional period of going back to school, whether you’re an actual student or a fictional wizard, but today—September 1st, 2017—holds a very particular place in the hearts of Harry Potter fans: It’s the day the “19 years later” epilogue of The Deathly Hallows is set.
You’ve already heard a bit from me the past few weeks. I’d like to introduce myself, and hear from you, dear readers. What do you want to see on the weekends?
Comics have given us some truly memorable cover art—from Superman’s debut in Action Comics #1 to the legendary “Spider-Man No More!” of Amazing Spider-Man #50. So many have become iconic that they’ve formed the basis for countless parodies and homages since. What’s your favorite spin on a classic cover?
Fans have been talking about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie for years. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor has repeatedly said he’d like to return to the role. Now, if rumors are to be believed, Disney could soon announce it as the next Star Wars Story film, perhaps as early as this weekend, during the D23 Expo. But between Marvel’s…
Director Ron Howard wants to know if we can match the Han Solo character to this closet full of costumes.
Earlier today, we shared a concept trailer that imagined what a 1990s version of Batman v Superman would look like. We got so excited casting Wonder Woman that we expanded it to other superhero flicks, like a grindhouse Logan in the 1970s, or an early 2000s The Avengers. Here’s your chance to dream up your ultimate…
Tonight’s Doctor Who sounded the cloister bells, as the Doctor stood for one last time against the Cybermen to save his closest friends, his oldest foe, and people he’d never even met before. There were shocks, there were tears, and we can discuss them all in our final weekly thread of the season!
Twenty years ago today, a book was published that changed many of our lives forever. That book was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, later renamed Sorcerer’s Stone in the U.S. It was our first taste of a wondrous world of witchcraft and wizardry that has inspired billions around the world. Here’s how that…
Tonight, Doctor Who made the Cybermen great again, after years of not knowing what to do with the show’s perennial runners-up in the “best monster” rankings. But it also delivered a dread-laden build-ups to one of the all-time great cliffhangers in the show’s history: one we have to talk about right now.
It’s been a while since a science fiction or fantasy movie had a hit single come off its soundtrack. So we’re asking: what movie singles are the best and worst?
Today is that annual barbecue-flavored festival of football games and wrist watches known as Father’s Day. It’s a time when people reach out to their father, mother, or parental figure to remind them they’re awesome (that reminds me, I still have to do that!). There are plenty of fictional papas who also inspire us,…
