What We’re Talking About

What We’re Watching 

Dumb but fun sci-fi actioner The Tomorrow War dropped on Amazon Prime over the weekend. Great set pieces and a charismatic cast led by Chris Pratt and Yvonne Strahovski excuse its wasted opportunities.

The second teaser for Apple TV’s Foundation series – based on the novels by Isaac Asimov – gives us a September 24 release date and new footage. Dune? I can’t say I know her.

What We’re Buying

Note: These aren’t sponsored, we don’t get a cut, and nobody sends us freebies. It’s just some cool stuff we’re lusting over hard.

Vice Press has some gorgeous new Flash Gordon screen-printed posters by illustrator Peter Diamond up for pre-order. The regular design is £44.99, whilst the gold foil variant is £54.99.

Strictly limited to 2,500 copies, James Horner’s orchestral score for Aliens is getting a 35th anniversary green-yellow ‘Acid blood’ vinyl release for Record Store Day 2021 (17 July). It’s only available over the counter so check the list of participating stores and get up early.

These Yellow Power Range Club C 85 Reeboks – priced at £75 – are our pick of the three released so far. The shoeboxes even come together to form a Megazord which is just ridiculous. We love it.

Worth his weight in Beskar, this 7.8″ tall Mando by Iron Studios is modelled on references from his Season 2 set-to aboard Moff Gideon’s Star Destroyer. Pre-order for $145.
