Ghosts might not worry the Ghostbusters, but the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has Sony worried about its box office returns. The studio has announced that it’s shifting a number of its upcoming films to later dates, including the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Morbius, which were slated to hit theaters this summer. The films will now debut in March 2021.
R.F. Kuang made a splash in 2018 with her debut novel, The Poppy War, an epic military fantasy about a young woman named Rin, who finds herself in the midst of a brutal war.
Loosely based on real-world Chinese history, The Poppy War earned Kuang nominations for both the Nebula and World Fantasy Awards. She followed up that book last year with The Dragon Republic, and in November, she’ll close out the trilogy with The Burning God.
After spending years in production hell, Netflix began streaming its adaptation of Locke & Key earlier this year. The show departed from the comics it’s based on in some significant ways, and ended up on a big cliffhanger.
Fortunately, we won’t be left hanging: Netflix announced today that it was officially bringing the series back for a second season.
Solaris Books has announced that it has acquired three new novellas from Children of Time and Spiderlight author Adrian Tchaikovsky. The first, titled One Day All This Will Be Yours, arrives in a limited-edition hardcover in March 2021, with the others to follow in 2022 and 2023.
We spoke with Tchaikovsky about what to expect coming up.
Hulu has released a first look at its upcoming animated series, Solar Opposites, which comes from Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Rick & Morty. The series is set to debut on Hulu in May, and looks and sounds quite a bit like Adult Swim’s hit series.
WisCon, one of the major SF/F convention in the United States, has officially been canceled, according to its organizers.
Held each year in Madison, Wisconsin, the convention has a particular focus on feminism and social justice, examining genre books, films, and television to “foster conversations about feminism(s), gender, race, disability, and class.” This year’s convention would have been held between May 22nd and 25th.
We’re currently living in uncertain times, and there is one hero who’s well suited to guide and inspire us: The Doctor. Jodie Whittaker’s character took to Twitter to deliver the perfect message to help us through the pandemic: Be kind, and listen to doctors. Take a look.
This year’s 78th World Science Fiction Convention, CoNZealand–which includes the Hugo Awards—won’t take place as an in-person event this summer, because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. In its place, organizers will set up a virtual convention for fans to attend.
Warner Bros. is pushing back Wonder Woman 1984 again—this time because of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak around the world. The film, originally slated for release in June, will now debut in theaters on August 14th.
Picard star Patrick Stewart made the announcement earlier today, just two days before the season finale debuts on the streaming service.
Earlier today, fantasy author Jim Butcher dropped a couple of bombshell announcements: Not only was the next installment of his long-running Dresden Files series, Peace Talks, set to come out this summer, but a second novel, Battle Ground, would hit stores this fall.
On top of that, he released a slick book trailer for the two novels, directed by Priscilla Spencer, which showed off the first live-action take on the series since the 2007 SCI FI Channel show.
After the reveals, Butcher and Spencer went onto Zoom and YouTube to answer fan questions about the trailer and the upcoming books. Here are the highlights.
Last week, word broke that actress Rosario Dawson had been cast as Ahsoka Tano in the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian. Fan reaction was mixed, with many people wondering why Ashley Eckstein, who has voiced the character for years, wouldn’t be playing the part.
For her part, Eckstein posted to Instagram earlier today to confirm that she was in fact not part of The Mandalorian—seemingly ruling out a hope from fans that she might provide voiceover work for the character.
Light spoilers ahead for Westworld season 3, episode 2: “The Winter Line”.
Episode 2 of Westworld‘s third season, which aired on March 22, featured a couple of fun cameos: Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as a robotic version of Daenerys Targaryen’s Drogon, a fixture of Delos’ Medieval World park.
It’s a neat nod to HBO’s other big genre series, and in an interview with Variety, Westworld showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan explained that we might have seen more: George R.R. Martin had at one point pitched an extensive crossover episode!
