There are two huge scifi movies coming from fan favorite directors this weekend. One you’ll have to head to theaters to see: Alex Garland’s Annihilation. The other—the long-awaited, highly-anticipated Mute, directed by Duncan Jones—is arriving on Netflix.
When Alex Garland’s Annihilation opens Friday, it will be the end of a long journey for the film. It began way back in 2013 when Paramount bought the movie rights to Jeff VanderMeer’s book and its sequels, before they were even published. io9 has been covering Annihilation since the very beginning, and we thought it…

Sounds are the unheralded heroes of movies. They flutter into your eardrums without you even realizing it, and become as crucial a part of the experience as anything else. And nowhere is that truer than in Star Wars, where the sound department has to create sounds for things we’ve never seen before.
Fans who want to do more than just watch walkers on TV will soon be able to do just that. Thorpe Park, an amusement park in the UK, just announced it’ll soon open the world’s first Walking Dead roller coaster.

Seeing as how Black Panther is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fact it ends with two credits scenes is hardly a surprise. What is a surprise, though, is that while these scenes seem relatively self-explanatory, there’s a lot more going on in them than you’d think—especially in the second scene.
Somedays you’re driving around Los Angeles and suddenly find yourself on the Shattered Plains of Roshar, using stormlight to fight off Parshendi warriors.
There was a distinct weight and inevitability at the start of Monday’s Star Wars Rebels. With only a few episodes left, it felt like things were about to change. We didn’t know why, we didn’t know how, but all the characters seemed prepared for it.
Black Panther is now in theaters and it’s great. Like, really great. And one of the best things about it is you don’t need to be super familiar with Marvel’s 17 previous movies to enjoy it.
