The Fantastic Four Trailer Is Here, And It's Not At All What We Expected

I'm not sure that this first trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot is fantastic, exactly, but it's certainly intriguing.

Hints From Terminator Genisys' Big Fight And A Key Game Of Thrones Scene

Don't hold your breath for Joss Whedon to direct Avengers 3 and 4 — or for a Star Wars spin-off starring Obi-Wan. Just how much does Lois Lane interact with Bruce Wayne in Batman v. Superman?

Jon Pertwee's TARDIS Is Looking Much The Worse For Wear

Apparently this is the actual TARDIS prop used by Doctor Who back in the Jon Pertwee era — which seems believable, since it was pretty battered-looking back in 1971 and the intervening decades probably haven't been kind. Makes me kind of nostalgic for the days when the TARDIS was less imposing and shiny. » 1/27/15 4:04am Today 4:04am

Tiny Moon Dive-Bombs Asteroid During Near-Earth Flyby

Early this morning, a big (but not too big) asteroid made a close (but not too close!) pass by our planet. While totally unthreatening as a doomsday scenario, this particular asteroid makes for beautiful viewing: it has a tiny, orbiting moon. » 1/26/15 7:10pm Yesterday 7:10pm

This Is Probably The Most Beautiful Doctor Who Artwork Ever Created

Doctor Who has given rise to tons of incredible artwork, from Chris Achilleos' book covers to Dave Gibbons' comics to Bill Mudron's art nouveau painting. But for my money, the best Who art of all time is probably the Dalek comic strip that was published in the mid-1960s in Century 21 magazine. And it's all on Flickr. » 1/26/15 4:00pm Yesterday 4:00pm
