The Rogue One Blu-ray Is Filled With Features, But Somehow No Deleted Scenes

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

It’s no secret that a lot of footage was cut or changed in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Huge scenes in the trailers weren’t in the final movie.

Captain America: Civil War Is Captured Perfectly in This Insanely Epic New Poster

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

The genius of Captain America: Civil War is how it tells a seemingly small, personal story through such a huge, exciting framework. “Huge, exciting framework” is also a great way to describe Mondo’s poster for the film by artist Tyler Stout, which was just revealed and will be released Thursday.

Horizon: Zero Dawn Is a Beautiful Video Game About How Mankind Will Pretty Much End Itself

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

When I first started Horizon: Zero Dawn, I didn’t think Guerrilla Games’ version of a post-apocalypse saga was going to pull me in. Twenty hours later, I can’t stop hunting—and getting wrecked by—robot animals. It’s a very good video game with a chilling, scifi vision of the far-future at its core. Read more...

The Vision, 2016's Best Comic, Is Getting a Director's Cut Edition

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

As you might have been able to figure out last year, I absolutely adored The Vision—Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez Walta, Jordie Bellaire, and Clayton Cowles’ haunting take on the Android Avenger was one of the best comic reading experiences I had last year. And now it’s going to get even better with a new re-release. Read more...

Agents of SHIELD Delivered a Hell of a Great Episode Last Night and Brought Back an Old Friend, Too

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

The star of last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD wasn’t the action or the classic “robot decides mankind is too irrational to live” moment. It was the way the show portrayed the bone-deep paranoia that comes when anyone of your friends can be evil. Read more...

Everything That Aftermath: Empire's End Reveals About the New Star Wars Universe

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath books act as a sort of in-between trilogy, bridging a lot of the gap between the original Star Wars trilogy and The Force Awakens. Each book has been better than the one before it, and Empire’s End is the best by far. It also brings a lot of changes and additions to the new canon. Here’s… Read more...

Barry Allen Gutpunching a Gorilla Was the Most Majestic Thing The Flash Has Ever Done

2 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Whenever The Flash does a Grodd story, it pulls out all the stops—and last night’s episode, the start of a two-part Gorilla City spectacular, was no exception. I still can’t believe that the thing that makes The Flash ramp into overdrive isn’t the speedforce, it’s a giant telepathic evil gorilla. Read more...

In addition to including some new footage—not nearly enough of it being dedicated to Colleen Wing kicking butt, sadly—this new Iron Fist featurette lets Finn Jones set up the world of Netflix’s latest Marvel show. Unsurprisingly, the world of a Living Weapon involves quite a bit of punching. Read more...

3 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

After last week’s first trailer for Archer’s eighth season, subtitled Dreamland, FXX has released a boatload of new, very short promos, further teasing the show’s 1940s noir setting. So what if the whole thing is (probably) taking place in Sterling Archer’s comatose brain? This looks like a lot of fun. Read more...

Talk of a sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse has been rampant as of late. There have been rumors of titles, shooting dates, actors returning, and more.
