That's It, You're All Going To The Attic

Fox pulls the last episode of Dollhouse and your reaction is... not what I expected. For all the people upset at Fox, there were probably more disappointed with Joss Whedon, weirdly (and fittingly) enough. » 4/12/09 1:00pm 4/12/09 1:00pm

It's Time To Face The Jazz Music, Sam Raimi

Sam Raimi denies responsibility for Spider-Man 3, and you people? You tell him that he's apologizing for the wrong thing. Is there no way for this financially secure, successful, famous movie director to win? » 4/05/09 3:00pm 4/05/09 3:00pm

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the rumor that the Wachowskis may be rebooting the Superman movie franchise! And apparently, that's a lot of people's brand of cinematic kryptonite. » 2/15/09 2:00pm 2/15/09 2:00pm

Vagina-Faced Killers Need To Stay Old School, Apparently

There are certain things that the io9 readership will put up with: snark, Annalee's kitten obsession, and my love of Clone Wars to name just a few. But the idea of Predator being remade? Nooooo. » 2/01/09 3:00pm 2/01/09 3:00pm
