Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarts 12th season

In the 90's and the later part of the 80's there existed a little show called Mystery Science Theater 3000. In it, a man was stranded in space with a few robot companions, forever doomed to watch (and riff on) the world's worst movies.

Watch Deadpool spend Halloween trolling a bunch of kids

Watch Deadpool spend Halloween trolling a bunch of kids

As the role of Deadpool was made for Ryan Reynolds and the suit was cut for him specifically, the actor takes many opportunities to wear it. To wear the skin of the comic book character, figuratively. Or literally, we don't really know, but we're guessing.

This, should it ever come to fruition, would be part of a larger overall goal of producing “more unique programming” that traditional companies aren’t creating.

This awesome life-size R2-D2 fridge is Japan-only

Well, Star Wars merchandising and product tie-ins continue to pour out as the release date for The Force Awakens draws near. This time, however, Japan may have topped it all, with the just announced R2-D2 mini fridge from AQUA. That's not to say the fridge is "mini," as it's actually a life-size R2-D2 model, complete with movement and sound effects. Since we've already seen R2-D2 as a lawn ornament, a showerhead, and even a humidifier, there was really no other products left to explore besides mini fridge.

Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie delayed for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2

Earlier this year, fans of the Alien movie series were excited to learn that District 9-director Neill Blomkamp was confirmed to be working on a new entry, setting the stage for a film that could make up for the widely panned Prometheus.
