What We’re Talking About

Loki may be done, but we are not done with Loki. Just dropping our favorite reaction memes.

You’re welcome.

The release date has awakened! A deluge of new Dune footage is coming to IMAX on June 21-22, accompanied by a series of character posters

From Teal’c to T’Challa, Stargate‘s very own Chris Judge is voicing Black Panther in the Avengers videogame. The late Chadwick Boseman has left some pretty big shoes to fill.

Star Trek Discovery and Strange New Worlds are getting in on the LED wall game made famous by The Mandalorian. Check out the photo – it’s GORGEOUS.


What We’re Watching

If you had ‘the marketing campaign for Free Guy‘ on your MCU/Fox Marvel Crossover bingo card, I’m impressed, as Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Thor Ragnarok‘s amicable alien rockpile Korg (Taika Waititi, his Free Guy co-star) team-up for a reaction video.

Nihilistic near-future thriller Guns Akimbo dropped on Amazon Prime over the weekend. Best known for the viral set photo of Daniel Radcliffe in a dressing gown brandishing two pistols. It’s like a lost Mark Millar comic, basically.
