Major Mira Killian doesn’t remember who she was before. Now the character played by Scarlett Johansson is living inside a different kind of body about to start a different kind of life. She effortlessly leaps and shoots across a deliriously oversaturated cityscape with power and purpose. There’s something wrong at the…
Bane’s bodybuilding poses make me think he’s constantly humming Right Said Fred’s “Too Sexy” to himself. And when he gets to the “so sexy it hurts” part, that’s when he breaks your back.
Ok, then, no afro-mask. Looking good, Jefferson Pierce.
Luc Besson’s upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets looks like it’s going to be one of the trippiest sci-fi movies to come around since, well, The Fifth Element. A new trailer for the film shows off new aliens and more over-the-top spectacle than is probably healthy for early morning viewing.
At first, the idea of someone—presumably Casey Affleck—walking around in a white sheet with black eyeholes seems silly. Then it turns creepy and eventually becomes incontrovertibly sad.
The xeno-organism at the center of the new space thriller Life starts off microscopically small. By the time the movie’s over, it will probably generate some giant-sized nightmares.
The upcoming Tomb Raider movie is due out next March. This film’s iteration of Lara Croft is a dead ringer for her video game counterpart.
Lots of bodies in bags... well, if you’re making successive iterations of cyborgs, you’ve got to get the raw material from somewhere, right?
So often, women get told that having a child growing inside their bodies is a sacred duty that will turn them into glowing demi-goddesses. That might be the case for some lucky people, but even if it is, becoming a mother changes everything about your life. Prevenge cuts right into the belly of those preconceptions to…
He’s drawn Steve Jobs as Wolverine, Cyclops, Batman and Little Nemo. And Robert Sikoryak has cast Donald Trump as Solomon Grundy, the Joker, and Titano the Super-Ape, too. You can ask him about his hilariously detailed work right here.
Aw, look, little baby Kal-El, Isn’t he cute? Too bad he’s going to grow up to be a murderous despot who beats up all his friends and takes over his adopted homeworld.
Most of the people interested in seeing Life, the astronaut thriller out on March 24, probably have certain expectations based on the movie’s familiar premise: human beings encounter extraterrestrial organism, terrifying things ensue, just as in Alien, Predator and other classics. But while that most basic plotline…
Mass Effect: Andromeda comes out this week, marking the end of a long wait for fans of BioWare’s scifi action RPG franchise. We’re big fans of Mass Effect here at io9 and have decided to celebrate the occasion by looking back at our most-loved instances from the long-running series.
Near the end of Muppet Guys Talking, puppeteer Dave Goelz is asked a question about where he’s found the nobility in his life’s work. “[In] folly,” he answers. “Human folly. Celebrating the degree to which we’re all lost.” That’s just one instance of how this documentary about the world’s favorite puppets gets…
Hmm, maybe Peter Parker and Barbara Ann Minerva had the same martial arts sensei?
Rosedale High seniors Sadie and McKayla do everything together. Cheer squad, prom committee, blogging on Tumblr. Oh, and killing people. That’s, like, the number one thing they’re good at.
This new Injustice 2 trailer is all about Firestorm, which, y’know, great. Big fan of the Nuclear Man here. But one of the moments in the new teaser has me asking questions about one of Batman’s arch-foes.
What makes a monster? It’s the central question at the heart of the disturbing indie flick The Transfiguration, which managed to horrify me in ways that I wasn’t expecting—even from a horror movie.
