SDCC 2016: You Can’t Watch This Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Clip

by Peter Paltridgeon July 24, 2016
Marvel and Disney released an exclusive early clip from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 during their panel yesterday. Wanna see it? Well…you can’t.

SDCC 2016: The Aliens 30-Year Reunion Panel

by Peter Paltridgeon July 24, 2016
It is far from Game Over (man) for the cast of Aliens. In fact, some of them may return to the big screen very soon, as Neil Blomkamp’s in-development sequel will reuinite Ripley with Hicks and her adopted daughter Newt. How is that possible?

One of the pillars of the backstory on the Flash TV series is that Barry Allen lost his mother as a kid, when the Reverse Flash killed her. He had the chance to change this at the end of Season 1, but decided “no, what’s past is past and changing it would be bad.” Last […]
