Some networks set up themed Escape the Rooms for comic conventions. Syfy went the pop-up wedding chapel route… with American Gods’ Orlando Jones officiating!
HBO Films has shared the first official photo from Fahrenheit 451, its forthcoming adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s classic dystopian novel set in a future where reading is outlawed and books are burned. It’s, appropriately, an action shot of firefighter Guy Montag (Michael B. Jordan) letting the flames fly on some contraband reading, while his superior Beatty (Michael Shannon) looks on approvingly.
Today marks the 48th anniversary of humankind landing on the moon… and Tor.com’s 9th birthday!
To celebrate, we’re looking back at our Moon Landing Day series—we invited authors, artists, critics, and fans in the science fiction community to share with us what they were doing on July 20, 1969, and how it informed their relationship with science fiction. Check out personal remembrances from C.J. Cherryh, Larry Niven, Frederik Pohl, Jo Walton, and more!
Say what you will about 2017, at least this year is giving us a new Guillermo Del Toro movie! The Shape of Water is coming to theaters on December 9th, and it seems to be a spooky, complicated story of love and empathy between a mute woman and Abe Sapien’s cousin? The film stars Sally Hawkins as a sensitive lab worker, Octavia Spencer as her boss, Richard Jenkins as a seemingly nice scientist, and Michael Shannon as…well, as Michael Shannon. Plus Doug Jones returns to his Del Toro collaboration as the Sapien-esque creature!
Watch the full trailer below!
A24 has released the first teaser trailer for James Franco’s adaptation of The Disaster Artist, Greg Sestero’s memoir about being Tommy Wiseau’s costar and confidante during the making of cult classic The Room. And, no surprise, it centers on the film’s most iconic line.
There’s a new trailer for Blade Runner 2049, and we’re not quite sure what Dave Bautisa is angry about, but Ryan Gosling is probably pretty sorry he found out.
While we cross our fingers for a new The Last Jedi trailer at Disney’s D23 Expo, Lucasfilm has shared a behind-the-scenes video from the set of Episode VIII. It’s a bittersweet look at Rian Johnson’s film, both exhilarating to see hints of storylines and new characters but also poignant for its glimpses of the late Carrie Fisher.
Did you ever imagine that you’d hear “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” in relation with Madeleine L’Engle? Well, an excellent Eurythmics cover brings just the right tone to the first trailer for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, conjuring a world as trippy as what L’Engle’s classic novel activated in the imaginations of young readers.
Entertainment Weekly has posted a batch of new exclusive photos from Ava DuVernay’s forthcoming adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. While the director has shared some great behind-the-scenes shots on Twitter, these first-look photos really set the mood for her take on Madeleine L’Engle’s novel, from the colorful costumes to interdimensional sets.
Who will win the game of thrones? BORING. Let’s wonder about something more fun, like whether dragon poop will be essential to winning the fight against the Others.
Game of Thrones returns this Sunday to begin its long drive to an icy-fiery conclusion and while there is plenty of crazy on the way, we’re feeling the need to go deeper, to really fan the flame of our love for George R. R. Martin’s series and explore the really crazy theories that probably aren’t true…but maybe should be?
Anyway, we promised you dragon poop, so let’s get started.
Amazon Studios has released the first official trailer for its revival of superhero comedy The Tick. Ben Edlund, creator of the comic book character and the short-lived 2001 series, is back behind the wheel, with Peter Serafinowicz donning the big blue antennae from Patrick Warburton.
Of all the things we never knew we needed in this life, a dog doing ballet was probably at the top of the list.
Netflix tweeted a new poster and teaser for Stranger Things season 2. Both show the four Hawkins boys riding headlong into danger, though in this case it’s an ominous, blood-red storm containing the demogorgon (?!), indicating that the Upside Down may be coming from all sides. The streaming service also provided a slightly new release date for the second season of their nostalgic hit, pushing the premiere date up by a few days.
