Archie Is Going To Be Shot Dead This July. Yeah, That Archie.

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Archie Publications has, in recent years, gotten smart with the books they put out. Afterlife With Archie takes what should be a dumb idea, Archie fighting zombies, and makes it a disturbing, even sad, book. They’ve tackled issues ranging from the Occupy movement to same-sex marriage. Show More Summary

Every Network Gets A Zombie Show Now! YOU Get A Zombie Show! And YOU Get A Zombie Show!

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

It’s taken a couple of years, but the rest of American television is finally catching up to The Walking Dead. ABC has Resurrected, which looks suspiciously like The Returned. I love the crap out of The Returned, but it’s French and it’s in French and everyone is so Very French and of course that’s not good enough for A&E, so they’re remaking it.

Um, Guys, Captain Janeway Thinks The Sun Revolves Around The Earth

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Her hair is completely full of electric toothbrushes. Wait…wrong show. I’m firmly on record as hating, hating, hating Star Trek Voyager. It single-handedly killed TV Trek for me (I only barely watched Enterprise and am ambivalent about the franchise ever returning to the small screen) so I’m always happy to tear down Captain Janeway and her insipid crew.

And The Director Of The ‘Sinister Six’ Movie Is…

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Whether or not Sony’s attempt to turn Spider-Man into a yearly franchise is a good idea or not, the movies are on the way. And the Spidey-villain centric Sinister Six may have just found its director. Drew Goddard is a name you might know from Cabin In The Woods, which he directed and co-wrote, or his salvage job of World War Z.

You’ll Never Guess Who Was Cast As Chewbacca For ‘Star Wars Episode VII’

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Peter Mayhew is thrilled to be playing Chewbacca again.   The Star Wars: Episode VII news is really rolling in. Oh wait, no it isn’t. Filming has already begun, and the studio has only confirmed one cast member. We’ve heard plenty of rumors about villains and returning heroes, but we don’t know anything for sure.

Meme Watch: ‘Hail HYDRA’ Is The Perfect Response To ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

The bad guys in Captain America: The Winter Soldier were laughably incompetent, and one of the silly things they did was say “Hail HYDRA” to each other. Because people who commit crimes always announce the name of the criminal organization with which they’re affiliated. Show More Summary

Blade’s Glaives Are Reforged To Take Vengeance On Produce

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Blade doesn’t get enough credit as a movie that broke the Marvel curse. It was the first big-screen Marvel movie that both made it to more than a handful of screens and didn’t suck wildly. It’s still well-regarded among nerds and action movie connoisseurs, though, to the point where the Man At Arms web series decided to reforge his weapons.

Quicksilver Continues To Look Ridicuous In A Carl’s Jr. Commercial

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

The last crossover between X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Carl’s Jr. advertising was a gift to those with weird fetishes, but this second Carl’s Jr. ad featuring Evan Peters as Quicksilver is a gift to... we’re not sure whom. Maybe it’s...Show More Summary

Chris Pratt Brings The Snarky Hotness To The First ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Clip

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

The first clip from Guardians of the Galaxy just aired on MTV’s Movie Awards Takeover. The clip shows the rest of the scene from the trailer in which Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord is trying to steal something, Indiana Jones style, and he’s caught in the act and questioned by Korath the Pursuer (played by Djimon Hounsou).

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Movie Moves Forward With ‘Transcendence’ Writer

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Last we heard about the Battlestar Galactica movie, it was going to be directed by Bryan Singer and be based on Glen Larson’s 1978 original series with Larson on board as a producer. Variety now reports Universal has hired Transcendence writer Jack Paglen to script Battlestar Galactica as “a complete reimagining of the story”. Show More Summary

‘Titanfall’ Is Looking Surprisingly Passable On The Xbox 360

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

EA/Respawn One of the secrets Microsoft doesn’t want you to know about it’s big Xbox One system seller Titanfall, is that the game’s also coming out for the Xbox 360. Microsoft never mentions or shows this version of the game, and it...Show More Summary

Microsoft Wants The Xbox One To Be The Next Netflix

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

As we all might remember, the introduction of the Xbox One was marked by three phrases: “TV,” “Call of Duty,” and “SPORTS!.” But while Microsoft stepped away from its plans publicly, it’s still on the charm offensive in private, andShow More Summary

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Had Completely Incompetent Bad Guys

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

For the five of you who haven’t seen it yet, we’ll avoid above-the-cut spoilers. Suffice to say Captain America: The Winter Soldier features a vast and dangerous threat. Well-funded. Well-staffed. Well-equipped. And they’re total morons. Yes, we said it: HYDRA, in this movie, turns out to be pretty incompetent. Show More Summary

Underground Ocean Detected On Saturn’s Moon Enceladus

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Enceladus likes Saturn, so he put a ring on it. I’m sure you need a minute to recover from the side-splitting laughter induced by that six year-old pop culture reference. Take your time. Good? Okay, let’s proceed. It’s been a big year for water. We’ve been melting a lot of the frozen kind here on Earth, and finding the liquid kind off-planet.

Stop Playing With Your Underwhelming Submarine And Watch This ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Honest Trailer

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Take-Two Interactive So, apparently Honest Trailers is doing video games now. Heeey, saying snarky things about video game trailers is my thing. Hmph! Well, anyways, it didn’t take them long to get around to Grand Theft Auto V, because come on, not doing GTA would be like regular Honest Trailers not doing Twilight. Show More Summary

These Delicious Planet Cakes Are Out Of This World!

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

I’m going to use my position as an internationally famous blogger to voice an unpopular opinion: Cake is delicious, and I want to eat it all the time. I know, that was incredibly irresponsible. The Uproxx Overlords will be calling for my head on a platter (they prefer brains to cake), but it had to be said.

Details Of The ‘Constantine’ Pilot Supposedly Leak

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

We’re cautiously optimistic about Constantine, NBC’s upcoming attempt to get in on the comic book TV show train. True, David Goyer on the script isn’t necessarily great news, but it’s directed by superb horror director Neil Marshall and they’ve certainly got the look down if nothing else. Show More Summary

The ‘Adventure Time’ Art Show At Gallery 1988 Is Decidedly Acceptable

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Cuyler Smith’s “Friends Forever” Gallery 1988 did the thing. They held an art show celebrating Adventure Time, the GIF-worthy show that taught us to always be stupid forever and to try new things, because “sucking at something is the...Show More Summary

Microsoft Is “Thinking” About Backwards Compatibility On The Xbox One

2 weeks agoGenres / Sci Fi : Gamma Squad

Backwards compatibility would seem like pretty much a no-brainer for any modern game console. It instantly adds a lot more games, keeps players happy, and ensures publishers and developers get a little extra revenue. Microsoft, however,...Show More Summary
