The Phantom Menace is on the precipice of turning 20 years old.

Neil Gaiman Had to Fight to Keep One of Terry Pratchett's Creations in Good Omens Neil Gaiman Had to Fight to Keep One of Terry Pratchett's Creations in Good Omens

Agnes Nutter is not really a huge part of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s divine apocalyptic adventure Good Omens—she’s more important to the backstory and worldbuilding of Crowley and Aziraphale’s journey to stop the apocalypse, rather than being a major player herself. But when the upcoming adaptation nearly cut…

Spider-Man: Far From Home's Stealth Suit Was Almost Too Cool for Peter Parker

Peter Parker lives a pretty cool life—one that gets a bit cooler in Spider-Man: Far From Home (even if he doesn’t want it to) when superspy Nick Fury shows up and gives him a mission.

The climax of Detective Pikachu goes to a completely wild place, a place it arrives at seemingly out of nowhere.
