Godzilla Singular Point, a new anime series from director Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi) and anime studios Bones (My Hero Academia) and Orange (Beastars), marks a significant departure from recent Godzilla stories. Our rave review of the show calls it the possible “rightful anime heir to Shin Godzilla,” and says it “offers a much more cerebral take on the King of Monsters than the recent Hollywood smash-em-up Godzilla vs....

A Fourth ‘Before’ Movie Was in the Works With Richard Linklater, But Julie Delpy Turned It Down

The films in Richard Linklater‘s Before romantic drama trilogy were released nine years apart, and the most recent entry, Before Midnight, came out in 2013. So if that established pattern were to continue, the fourth Before movie should come out in 2022 – but unless something completely unexpected happens, audiences may have seen the end of Jesse and Céline.

Julie Delpy, one of the co-writers and co-stars of this unconventional franchise, revealed that she said no to Linklater when...

‘Titane’ Trailer: The Director of ‘Raw’ Has a New Movie That Looks Like David Cronenberg Meets ‘Fast and Furious’

Just what the hell is Titane? Well, it’s the latest movie from Julia Ducournau, director of the acclaimed horror movie Raw. Beyond that, though, I am at a complete loss – and I mean that as a compliment. This Titane trailer is bonkers – a weird, sexy, cold blend of imagery that looks like a Fast and the Furious movie directed by David Cronenberg in his prime. There are lots of shots here of people gyrating against fast cars, and then we have fights, body horror, raging fires,...

There Are Cracks in the Surface of Venus. Here’s Why That’s Important.

NASA/JPL

Much of the brittle, upper crust of Venus is broken into fragments that jostle and move—and the slow churning of Venus’ mantle beneath the surface might be responsible. My colleagues and I arrived at this finding using decades-old radar data to explore how the surface of Venus interacts with the interior of the planet. We describe it in a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on June 21, 2021.

Planetary scientists like me have long known that...

‘The Acolyte’ Showrunner Explains the Strength of Having Non-‘Star Wars’ Fans on Staff

One of the most exciting prospects of upcoming Star Wars universe is The Acolyte, a new series by showrunner Leslye Headland (Russian Doll). That’s because it’s being billed as a mystery thriller (a genre that has not often been explored in a galaxy far, far away) and seems to be largely unconnected to the events of the previous films and TV shows so far.

Headland, who is a Star Wars mega-fan, knows the value of having non-Star Wars junkies on her writing staff, and in a new interview,...

Director Renny Harlin Revisits ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 4’ – “Why Didn’t Everyone Realize It Was Going to Work?”

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master is one of the high points for the horror franchise and filmmaker Renny Harlin. The sequel stands the test of time thanks to imaginative dream sequences and practical effects that only look better with age, a Freddy Kruger movie that takes full advantage of the infinite possibilities of a dreamscape.

And although the 1988 picture changed Harlin’s life, he was always in fear while making it.

The Dream Master was only Harlin’s third movie,...
