Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman goes shopping for bad guys in a new clip from Wonder Woman 1984.

Another new clip sees Wonder Wonder use the Lasso of Truth on Maxwell Lord while fighting off White House security.

Mandao Returns

A man astral projects back-in-time to save the life of a sci-fi movie actress in the trailer for Mandao Returns, the sequel 2018's Mandao of the Dead.

A Boy Called Christmas

Maggie Smith, Stephen Merchant, Jim Broadbent, Sally Hawkins, Toby Jones, Michiel Huisman, Kristen Wiig, Zoe Colletti, and Toby Jones reveal the secret origin of Santa Claus in the first trailer for A Boy Called Christmas.

The Flash

Set photos from the seventh season of The Flash see Barry fighting a Roman Centurian (!) under the control (...?) of a man in a swirly black and red mask that could be The Arrowverse’s interpretation of Spellbinder. Click though to have a look, then let us know what you think in the comments.



Hailee Steinfeld discussed the “witty” and “badass” Kate Bishop in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.

As I’m in the process of developing her, I’m working with some incredible filmmakers that are helping me bring her to life. I can’t wait for people just to see how we are interpreting this character through the comics. In her own sort of ways, she’s such a badass. There’s no denying that. She’s so smart and witty and quick, and her physical ability to do so many things is through the roof. It’s really tested me, and it’s kept me going through quarantine, I will say, it’s given me a reason to stay with it.

Two-Sentence Horror Stories

Finally, The CW has released a new trailer for the second season of Two-Sentence Horror Stories, premiering January 12.

Oh dammit, I didn’t realise the Furiosa movie was a prequel.

Am I alone in this, or is anyone else utterly sick of prequels? Don’t get me wrong, they can be great movies, but it just takes away from any sense of threat or real suspense, a lot of the time, knowing that (x) and (y) definitely survive the seemingly impossibly odds as they were already in the original movie, or that (a) and (b) won’t survive because - Rogue One style - if they did, there’d have to be a reason why they weren’t around.

Can’t we just move forward into the future?

I’ve been feeling this a lot because of many of the new Star Wars announcements. I love The Mandalorian series, it’s fucking awesome, but having what, 5 or 6(?) series set between existing movies is getting a bit tiresome. And then the big new set of stuff is also a prequel. There’s a GoT prequel coming that will potentially build up all sorts of interesting stuff about the biggest damp squib in fiction, the Night King. Black Widow looks great, but again it’s a prequel (although, y’know, would have been hard not to be), Loki is set between movies sort of, too. And don’t get me goddamn started (again) on the books of Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson in the Dune universe. We’re at the point where we’re now getting “Duke Leto arranges the moving van on Caladan... of Dune” books!

I know this is a bit of a rambling old man yelling at clouds sort of post, but does anyone else out there agree with me?

**slinks off into the darkness muttering to himself**

(Also, Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all have a lovely time and at least a little bit of joy in amongst all the horrors out there right now. I’ll be hunkering down with my gf and her daughter to take in Soul with a cheeseboard bigger than my head.)
