Must Watch: 12 Monkeys' Amazing Coke-Fueled Himalayan Mummy Dance Party


Even apart from its many other delights, Syfy's decision to make a TV series of 12 Monkeys will have been worth it just for this weird-ass scene where businessmen wheel out a thousand-year-old frozen corpse in a Japanese nightclub. Now THAT's a party! Watch for yourself. » 3/30/15 4:15pm Yesterday 4:15pm

Did 12 Monkeys Just Explain How Changing The Past Works?

Last Friday's episode of 12 Monkeys took a lot of audacious, dark risks. And it added to our sense that this show is piling on the mythos, in good ways and bad. There are now several extra layers of mystery and foreshadowing on top of what we already knew. But most importantly... did someone explain time travel? » 3/23/15 4:58pm 3/23/15 4:58pm

We Didn't Think 12 Monkeys Could Get Any Darker... But It Did

Syfy's time-travel show 12 Monkeys has a pretty grim premise, involving a plague apocalypse that kills 7 billion people and turns the world into a Hobbesian nightmare. But it can still get nastier than that, as last night's episode amply proved. Spoilers ahead... » 3/14/15 10:30am 3/14/15 10:30am

12 Monkeys Is Finally Offering A Real Choice Between Past And Future

I don't have that much to say about this past Friday's 12 Monkeys — it's a lot of set-up, and Cole and Cassandra both spend the whole episode spinning their wheels. But it does set up the show's first ever conflict between changing the past and actually building a plausible future. Spoilers ahead... » 3/09/15 4:00pm 3/09/15 4:00pm

A History Of Time Travel In The DC Universe

As Convergence gets ready to turn the world of DC Comics upside down and The Flash begins experimenting with travelling back and forth in time on TV, it feels like a big time for DC's take on time travel.

Wow, Edward Snowden Is A Total Megadick On 12 Monkeys

We expected craziness, time-looping, wild schemes and plagues on Syfy's 12 Monkeys. But what we never saw coming was Evil Edward Snowden, who's so nihilistic he's willing to consider letting the human race brush up against extinction. Watch for yourself! » 2/28/15 3:00pm 2/28/15 3:00pm

Rumor: Naked Arnie Will Look "Like A Ken Doll" In Terminator Genisys

The new Terminator movie will give us another look at the iconic scene from the original film, where a naked killer robot arrives in the past to hunt down Sarah Connor. But now it appears as though we'll be seeing a lot more of Naked Arnold Schwarzenegger than we had in the past... but he won't be anatomically correct. » 2/25/15 1:07pm 2/25/15 1:07pm

The Time Travel In Syfy's 12 Monkeys Is Probably Not Going To Make Sense

Don't get me wrong — I'm still enjoying the hell out of 12 Monkeys. But last night's episode confirmed what I suspected from the pilot onwards. The time travel on this show is going to follow make-it-up-as-we-go-along rules, without much regard for logic. Typical television time travel, in other words. » 2/21/15 9:00am 2/21/15 9:00am

The French Remake Of Hot Tub Time Machine Has A Lot More Motor Scooters

Just imagine if Hot Tub Time Machine was more sophisticated and European, and less... I don't know what, crass and American. Yes? Then you would have something like BIS, which borrows the basic idea of HTTM, but with no hot tub. And a lot more riding around on motor scooters. » 2/20/15 9:00pm 2/20/15 9:00pm

The Water's Gotten A Lot Fouler In Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Hot Tub Time Machine had a clever spin on the "male midlife crisis" comedy genre, sending four dudes back to the 80s to relive their best weekend. And now there's a sequel, which doubles down on the time-travel hijinks, but also goes all-in on the gross-out dude-bonding humor. Spoiler-o-rama... » 2/20/15 9:00am 2/20/15 9:00am

10 Time Travel Books That Need To Be Movies Right Now (If Not Sooner)

Time travel is huge at the movies right now. This Friday sees Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and Terminator 5 is coming soon. But as Predestination recently proved, the smartest movies about time warps are often based on literary sources.

Holy Crap, 12 Monkeys Blew Our Minds All Over Again

Syfy's 12 Monkeys show may be concerned with stretching out a two-hour movie into an open-ended TV series, but it's definitely not dragging its feet. We're only five hours in, and the show's already burning (no pun intended) through a lot of plot. And it's already turned everything we thought we knew on its head. » 2/14/15 10:00am 2/14/15 10:00am

Here's Why More Writers Should Randomly Live-Tweet Their Own Movies

The writer of wry time-travel comedy Safety Not Guaranteed, Derek Connolly, took to Twitter last night to offer running commentary on his film ... and it kind of made us love the movie even more. » 2/14/15 8:17am 2/14/15 8:17am

In 1900, Two Inventors Audition For A Stage Show About The Year 2000

The year is 1900 and Georges and Madeleine are trying to get a gig showing off the wonders of life in the year 2000, complete with gadget that we would think of today as retrofuturistic.

Time Itself Is The Newest Frontier In Mark Millar's Chrononauts

Humanity has done a reasonably solid job investigating the land, the oceans, and the sky, but in Mark Millar's new comic Chrononauts, two fun-loving geniuses begin exploring the time-stream with a few people looking over their shoulder — namely, a live television audience. » 2/11/15 12:04pm 2/11/15 12:04pm

How Predestination Made Jumping Through Time Look So Damn Good

Predestination was a cool-looking, psychologically complex movie about time travel and shifting identities. And one of the best things about this film is how it dramatizes the toll that traveling through time takes on people. Here's an exclusive clip from the Blu-ray special features that shows how they did it. » 2/09/15 10:53am 2/09/15 10:53am

Is There Really Any Such Thing As A Do-Over On 12 Monkeys, After All?

Syfy's TV version of 12 Monkeys continues to play around with the question of whether Cole's time-travel is changing the past, or whether it "already happened." That ambiguity leads to some pretty interesting story possibilities, as last night's episode "Atari" demonstrates. Spoilers ahead... » 2/07/15 10:00am 2/07/15 10:00am

The Exact Moment When Peter Capaldi Won Us Over As The Twelfth Doctor

Every time a new actor takes over the role of the Doctor, the mysterious alien time-traveler on Doctor Who, it's always a bit of an adjustment. The expectations are high — and that goes double for beloved actor Peter Capaldi, who took the role last year. And here's the scene where Capaldi proved he could own the role. » 2/06/15 1:12pm 2/06/15 1:12pm

12 Monkeys' Heroes Both Do The Unforgivable, But We Still Root For Them

Last night's episode of 12 Monkeys went to an incredibly dark place, showing both Cole and Cassandra Railly doing things that are basically unforgivable. It's actually hard to say whose transgression was worse. And yet, we still manage to sympathize with both of them, which is kind of impressive. Spoilers ahead... » 1/31/15 11:00am 1/31/15 11:00am
