August 19 in Sci-Fi History: Frontiersman-ing with Orville Wright and Gene Roddenberry @ Syfy Wire

Two Star Trek legends, Gene Roddenberry and Jonathan Frakes, were born on this day in sci-fi history. Different years, of course, but let's not get ahead of ourselves ... because before there was Star Trek, there were space shuttles ... and before that, airplanes.

So, let's go back to the beginning real quick. Because it was on this day in 1871 that Orville Wright was born in Dayton, Ohio. He and his brother Wilbur would later go on to invent the airplane. And we're hoping it was as adorable as this:

Wynonna Earp 2.11 recap: Like a stranger I ain't never met @ Syfy Wire

Warning: If you haven't watched Wynonna Earp Season 2, Episode 11, "Gone As a Girl Can Get", then I suggest you stop reading and go correct that. This is a TV recap and is therefore full of spoilers. Don't say I didn't warn you.

It's time for the "what if" episode. Every show has one, right? In this case it's what would have happened if Wynonna never existed?

How the upcoming solar eclipse could warp space weather @ Syfy Wire

If you haven’t seen eclipse updates everywhere you click by now, you’re probably living in the dark—but besides briefly blacking out anything in the path of totality and being the photo op of a lifetime, it’s also going to have some effect on space weather.

Not really, but this new video pretends that’s true.


John Boyega confirms royally cool Last Jedi cameos @ Syfy Wire

The Star Wars franchise is one of the biggest, most popular filming today. So it's no surprise that celebrities are practically lining up for a cameo in Rian Johnson's upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, even those with royal blood. The first film in the new trilogy, The Force Awakens, featured cameos by Simon Pegg, Warwick Davis, and Daniel Craig, so we're certainly expecting some good ones to pop up in TLJ.

Relive the Squishiest Highlights of Ash vs. Evil Dead Season Two in This Gloriously Gross Supercut @ io9

Starz has yet to reveal the season three premiere date for horror comedy Ash vs. Evil Dead (apparently, even star Bruce Campbell doesn’t know when the show will be back). In the meantime, you can pick up the season two DVD on August 22, and peek at what has to be one of the grossest bonus features ever below.


Sonny Landham of Predator fame dead at 76 @ Syfy Wire

Actor Sonny Landham, best known here for playing badass tracker Billy Sole in Predator, died yesterday in Lexington, Kentucky at the age of 76.

Landham started his career starring in over a dozen adult films. He played a policeman in his first major mainstream role in Walter Hill's 1979 cult hit, The Warriors, and he starred in nearly 50 projects over his career. The Native American actor -- part Seminole, part Cherokee -- was known for his "tough guy" roles, and performed frequently as a stuntsman.

We Finally Know The Joker's Real Name and It's Fantastic @ io9

In the nearly 80 years that he’s spent terrorizing Gotham City, he’s gone by many different names. John Doe. Jackanapes. The Clown Prince of Crime. Puddin’. The Joker’s true identity is the card he’s always played closest to his chest, but it’s about to be revealed in DC’s upcoming Batman: White Knight.


Dave Made a Maze Is a Wacky Fairy Tale About the Folly of Trying to Make Something Perfect @ io9

Stinking good! There's a Garbage Pail Kids documentary wafting to theaters @ Syfy Wire

I love Garbage Pail Kids. I got my first card around age 6, and I still remember my favorite card: K.O. Kody, a little redhead kid that had had the crap beat out of him. Swollen lumps, black eyes, bleeding cuts ... he was the most explicitly gross card I had, and my parents hated it. I still have all my Garbage Pail Kids cards.

The Batmobile is getting a killer revamp in Batman: White Knight @ Syfy Wire

The Caped Crusader is riding into his upcoming Batman: White Knight comic in a new Batmobile, and it’s pretty metal.

One of the Most Fascinating Short Films in Recent Memory Is Getting a Sequel @ io9

Make a list of the best science fiction films made this decade and World of Tomorrow is right near the top. If you haven’t seen or heard of it, that’s probably because it’s a short film, but it’s jaw-droppingly amazing and now it’s getting a sequel.


Obi-Wan Kenobi goes solo: Why Stephen Daldry is a great choice to direct the Star Wars spin-off @ Syfy Wire

The master is finally getting his moment.

Multiple reports surfaced Thursday that a stand-alone Obi-Wan Kenobi film is in the works, and for fans, the news was simultaneously a disturbance in the Force — and far from a big shock.

Leap into this somber trailer for Andy Serkis' new Planet of the Apes game Last Frontier @ Syfy Wire

Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes was a satisfying conclusion to the rebooted Apes prequel trilogy and now a creative team-up of Andy Serkis’ The Imaginarium Studios and FoxNext Games will further flesh out the saga in a new video game titled, Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier, existing in the narrative gap between Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.

The Next Star Wars Miniatures Game Is All About Boots on the Ground Action @ io9

Stranger Things EP promises scarier, more complicated Season 2 threats @ Syfy Wire

While Stranger Things is undoubtedly the baby of the Duffer Bros., fellow executive producer Shawn Levy, who calls himself their "surrogate older brother," brings his experience to the table. That's especially helpful now, when Stranger Things Season 2 has to battle both a new monster, and the expectations of fans who fell in love with the series last season.

Hugo-winning sci-fi novel The Fifth Season hits TNT for new sci-fi drama @ Syfy Wire

TNT is loading up on a fantastic new sci-fi drama by developing an adaptation of N.K. Jemisin’s intricate Hugo Award-winning novel, The Fifth Season.

Our favorite Twitter reactions to Season 1 of The Defenders @ Syfy Wire

It’s August 18, which in case you didn’t already know, is the drop date for Season 1 of The Defenders on Netflix.

That’s right, now we can see Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) fight … ninjas, what else?

Legends of Tomorrow: Routh teases BTTF nod, Jessica Jones alum to play Ray’s mother @ Syfy Wire

Spy Seal Is a Quirky, Surrealist Take on Classic Spy Stories @ io9

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you blended James Bond, Tintin, and Rupert the Bear together, and splashed it out into the pages of a comic book? If so, you’ve had some weirdly specific moments of imagination. But also: you’d probably get Rich Tommaso’s wonderfully quaint new series, Spy Seal.


Uncharted director Shawn Levy calls it an Indiana Jones franchise for a new generation @ Syfy Wire

Video game movies do not have a good track record, and that's putting it kindly. Out of around 40 theatrical releases based on video games, only two have grossed more than $100 million dollars in the U.S., and one of those was based on a game about firing birds at pigs with a slingshot.

Shawn Levy, who is signed on to direct an Uncharted film with Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) as its young star, knows and acknowledges that.

Let These Award-Winning Ecology Images Soothe Your Tortured Soul @ io9

Nature can be brutal as hell. The Circle of Life translates to a horrible place full of awful smells, corpses, murder, and plenty of unreasonably upsetting shit. Looking at pictures of nature, however, is a completely different story. It’s soothing. It’s nice. There’s not as much blood, generally.


John Boyega Says British Royalty Was Nearly in Star Wars: The Last Jedi @ io9

Last year while the next Star Wars was filming at Pinewood Studios in London, the galaxy far, far away was visited by Princes Harry and William.

This Porn Website Seriously Wants to Bring Back Sense8 @ io9

As of now, Netflix’s heady, sexy, inclusive scifi thriller Sense8 is basically dead—may it rest in peace. But, if the Wachowski sisters are willing to consider this rather interesting proposal from xHamster, there’s a chance that the series may find a new—and more erotic—second life on one of the internet’s…


Flatliners star Nina Dobrev was literally set on fire making the sci-fi reboot @ Syfy Wire

Actor Says Game of Thrones Cut One of the Season's Most-Needed Reunions @ io9

This latest season of Game of Thrones is all about unions and reunions, because we’ve got to bring everyone together before they can all be killed by White Walkers. But for some reason, there was one vital reunion that looks to have been wrongly left out.


Frank Grillo searches for his son in trailer for sci-fi sequel, Beyond Skyline @ Syfy Wire

I'll admit I had high hopes for 2010's low-budget sci-fi invasion movie, Skyline, and the trailer delivered some genuinely cool imagery of a Los Angeles assault of otherworldly visitors. Sadly, the actual film didn't deliver on its promise and was filled with cliched dialogue, recycled sci-fi tropes and a shockingly abrupt ending. I'm being kind here, folks!

Fantastic Four’s Jamie Bell was 'bitterly disappointed' in that dud of a film @ Syfy Wire

It is a fact universally acknowledged that director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot was a hot mess both in front of and behind the camera.

The 2015 superhero movie featuring Marvel’s First Family was a critical and commercial failure that angered fans no end about what had been done to the beloved characters’ origin story.

Marvel Superheroes Who Basically Only Protect New York City, Ranked @ io9

Chosen One of the Day: The Cat from Early Edition @ Syfy Wire

When you think about science fiction, usually you think spaceships and aliens and monsters and time travel and crazy technology. You think about giant differences between life as we know it and the reality depicted on your screen. But there's this whole set of TV shows where the differences between that reality and our own only vary by a tiny margin, where a single slight change suddenly drops the main character into a whole new world of possibilities. 

Resident Evil's Nemesis drops in for new Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite story trailer @ Syfy Wire

Earlier this summer we showed you some electrifying footage from the new Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite title from a gameplay story trailer; then an SDCC promo dropped showcasing Spider-Man and Thanos entering the battle zone against Ultron and his Infinity Stone-gathering plan to unite the universes of Marvel and Capcom.

Watch: James Cameron on franchises and the futures of Terminator and Avatar @ Syfy Wire

Our interview with James Cameron continues as we discuss the current cinematic climate of blockbuster franchises being released one after the other. How does one maintain a franchise and make it stand apart in today's oversaturated market?

We also discuss the upcoming 3D re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which prompted some anecdotes about the film's production. Did you know that the span of Cameron printing out the script for the very first time to T2 hitting theaters in July 1991 was about 12 months? Astonishing.

Stranger Things Had To Hide the Monsters To Get the Rights To 'Should I Stay or Should I Go' @ io9

Exclusive preview: Riverdale #6 reveals the secrets overheard by Pop Tate @ Syfy Wire

Marvel's The Defenders has finally released, uniting Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist for the first time on the screen. It’s an eight-episode series, but let's be honest here: Some of you have already watched all of it. No judgment here, though: I'm not running on much sleep either.

Batman and Harley Quinn's Post-Credits Scene Takes a Jab At Daytime TV Psychologists and Reality TV @ io9

There’s a moment in Batman and Harley Quinn when Nightwing asks Harley why she’s working for minimum wage in a superhero-themed bar inspired by Hooters instead of using her background as a psychiatrist to help people, make some legit money, and truly get back on the straight and narrow.


Watch: John Romita Sr. on why he has mixed emotions about Luke Cage's original costume @ Syfy Wire

The costume is a crucial part in the creation process of just about every superhero. The look, especially at the point of inception, almost always becomes a permanent part of that character, ingrained in most fans' memory whenever they think of that hero.

Watch: John Romita Jr. on Studio 54 and the secret origin of X-Men's Dazzler @ Syfy Wire

This week's casting rumors about The Orville star Halson Sage possibly playing the "turn sound into light" mutant hero Dazzler in the next X-Men film have put the character back in the spotlight. So we thought we would hit the wayback machine to revisit the long, glorious, and sometimes bewildering origin story of Miss Alison Blaire with one of her creators.

A porn site wants to fund a third season of Netflix's Sense8. Seriously. @ Syfy Wire

A new player has thrown its hat into the ring of scripted television in regard to a cult-favorite genre TV show. Porn site xHamster has offered a lifeboat for the recently Netflix-canceled show Sense8, in hopes of getting a third season greenlit. Co-creators Lana and Lilly Wachowski were sent a letter by xHamster Vice President Alex Hawkins with an offer to produce the show’s third season and become the permanent home for the series. 

Closest Approach Ever By a Large Asteroid Won't End Life on Earth, But Probably Should @ io9

Plus, more footage from Riverdale, Inhumans, and Death Note, and tons of images from Thor: Ragnarok. To me, my Spoilers!


Patty Jenkins about to make history with Wonder Woman 2 payday @ Syfy Wire

Hear that? It's the sound of at least one glass ceiling shattering.

August 18 in Sci-Fi History: Jessica Jones and Shelley Winters @ Syfy Wire

She's arguably the best part of The Poseidon Adventure, and today would have been 97. On this day in sci-fi history, Shelley Winters was born.

Are you “Lost in Light”? @ Syfy Wire

Oh my, this has been quite a week. A lot of poisonous things are happening politically in my beloved country. I am quite politically active — if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or read any of my political posts, you know this — and the past few days have been no exception.

Galaxy Quest series still in works at Amazon @ Sci-Fi Storm

Never give up, never surrender!

The Galaxy Quest series based on the 1999 movie has been in development for a while at Paramount, with Amazon signing on for distribution, but plans took a hit when Alan Rickman, who played Alexander Dane/Dr. Lazarus in the movie, passed away in January of 2016.

Now it seems things are picking up again, wit the series still set for Amazon, with The League star and occasional writer Paul Scheer working on a script based on a new take for the series. No word on whether this version will feature any of the original cast. Mark Johnson is still attached as a producer.

Obi-Wan film in development for next Star Wars anthology film @ Sci-Fi Storm

Rumor no more…Disney/Lucasfilm is developing an Obi-Wan-centric movie to be the third Anthology film in the Star Wars franchise.

And this is EARLY in development. There is no deal currently in place with anyone, but we understand that Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader) is being eyed.

So now the next movie rumor can be put to rest, and now we can speculate on who will play him…

Here's What All the Defenders Were Up To Before The Defenders @ io9

Batman and Harley Quinn Gives a Big Middle Finger To the Beloved Antivillain @ io9

There are plenty of things to be annoyed with about Batman and Harley Quinn. It looks cheap, it cuts more corners than it should, and it feels much more like an average TV episode than an actual movie. But the biggest problem is how much it cheapens Harley Quinn, turning a beloved character into an “Idiot Meat Skank.”…


NASA wants to rocket its AI technology to Mars — and maybe even a comet @ Syfy Wire

Robots might make you think of anything from insecure droids like C-3PO to metal machines of mass destruction, but NASA’s idea of how artificial intelligence will rocket into the future is nothing less than mind-blowing.

Writer Jo Duffy revisits her classic run on Marvel's Power Man & Iron Fist @ Syfy Wire

There are many reasons why Marvel's The Defenders, debuting Friday, August 18, on Netflix, may be the most anticipated superhero TV series of all time. Sigourney Weaver playing the Big Bad is obviously one. But for many fans, seeing two particular characters uniting on screen may be the true highlight: Power Man and Iron Fist.

Watch: Spider-Man fans reveal what they love about Spidey @ Syfy Wire

San Diego Comic-Con may be (long) over for another year ... but love of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man lives on! 

As usual, there was plenty of Spidey cosplay on display at the Con this year, which inspired us to ask all these costumed wallcrawlers what they love the most about their go-to superhero. From being the most "relatable" of heroes to seemingly always coming from the heart, Spider-Man is indeed a fan favorite.

The Director of Marvel's Inhumans Believes He Was Hired for His Ability to Shoot Fast and Cheap @ io9

In just over two weeks, Marvel’s Inhumans will be debuting in IMAX theaters across the country, but the early trailers don’t make it look cinematic. That’s because, even though it’s being released like a movie, Inhumans wasn’t treated like one.


George Romero vets give obscure DIY horror flick Effects 4K Blu-ray treatment @ Syfy Wire

Have you ever been a member of the crew on a horror flick, and you suddenly realized all those grisly scenes you’ve been filming were actually real, and that you’ve just been making a snuff film all along? No? Well, hallelujah, because you really shouldn’t get mixed up in such things, but that’s not to say it’s not a great premise for a horror movie.
