The New Season of ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Is Headed to Netflix

If someone asked me to trace my personal development as a cinephile, I’m pretty sure that Mystery Science Theater 3000 would be one of the most important stops along the way. I grew up watching the show; it instilled in me an appreciation for pointless pop culture knowledge as well as an affection for so-called bad movies. Mike, Joel and the bots may have spent their time mocking ’70s and ’80s films, but there was always an undercurrent of good cheer and low-budget kinship that I admired.

J.J. Abrams Says Anton Yelchin’s Role Will Not Be Recast in Future ‘Star Trek’ Movies

It may seem a bit soon to be discussing the future of a franchise when the latest installment hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but the early buzz surrounding Star Trek Beyond is so positive that Paramount has already announced plans for Star Trek 4. Following the recent, tragic passing of Anton Yelchin, some fans have wondered how the Trek universe will address that loss, and producer J.J. Abrams has an answer.

‘Suicide Squad’ Puts the Spotlight on Deadshot, Rick Flag and Amanda Waller in New Clips

The trailers for Suicide Squad have done a fairly good job of letting each member of Task Force X shine, though they have leaned a bit more heavily on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker — at least they know their target audience. But these new clips help us get to know some of the other major characters from David Ayer’s DC super-villain ensemble, like Will Smith’s Deadshot and Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.

Let’s Figure Out What’s Up With the Costumes in This New ‘Power Rangers’ Photo

Over the weekend, Lionsgate released some Power Rangers photos — of which the highlight was clearly Elizabeth Banks in the gloriously ridiculous role of the film’s villain, Rita Repulsa. If anyone can pull off an absurdly elaborate costume, it’s Banks, who basically proved herself to be the Lady Gaga of the acting world in The Hunger Games. But as this new photo from the upcoming reboot proves, sometimes it’s best to leave such insane wardrobe choices to the professionals. Or Joel Schumacher’s Batman movies.

25 Years Ago, Keanu Reeves Had One of the Craziest Weeks in Movie History

This year marks the 25th anniversary of two very special Keanu Reeves films: Point Break and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. But what makes this particular anniversary so significant is that these movies weren’t released within a few months of each other — they were released just seven days apart. It may very well have been the weirdest and most wonderful week in new movie release history, and one that hasn’t really been replicated since.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Gets One More Trailer, And It’s a Pretty Good One

Paramount has released the fourth and final trailer for Star Trek Beyond ahead of the film’s July 22 release, and if early word is to be believed (and we think it is), you have every reason to be optimistic about the new sequel. Shorter, punchier and more action-packed than the first three previews, the latest and last trailer may be the best of the bunch, and if nothing else, it looks like Justin Lin was definitely the right pick to replace J.J. Abrams in the director’s chair.

Two Fans Played the ‘Star Wars’ Theme on John Williams’ Lawn, and John Williams Loved It

13-year-old trumpeter Bryce Hayashi got a nice surprise when he and flugelhorn player Michael Miller played an impromptu tribute to John Williams’ Star Wars theme on the lawn of the master composer’s house: Williams himself was home and came out to shake their hands and salute them on their fine playing.

‘Indiana Jones’ Might Be Getting the ‘Star Wars’ Treatment From Disney

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm and the rights to distribute Indiana Jones, rumors began circulating about the studios’ intentions to reboot the franchise and cast a younger actor in Harrison Ford’s iconic role. That’s not the case, however, as Ford is reuniting with Steven Spielberg for Indiana Jones 5, while recent comments from studio chief Bob Iger suggested that there are still plans to reboot Indy sometime in the near future. As it turns out, those plans may be a bit bigger than Iger implied.
