You know that awesome Darth Vader scene in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? The one at the end with all the lightsaber-swinging and Force chokes that shows Mr. Vader trying to retrieve the stolen Death Star plans? Yeah, that almost never happened. Director Gareth Edwards and his editor, Jabez Olssen, were already cutting the …

Ever since Ridley Scott started making Alien prequels, fans have wondered if, when, and how those movies will ever tie into the timeline of his 1979 classic. 2012’s Prometheus was in the same universe as the original, but other than, well, aliens, it didn’t have any crossover characters.

Fake news: It’s everywhere. But now the term “fake news” gets tossed around so much it’s even harder to tell what’s legit anymore.

A future world ruled by evil corporations isn’t exactly a new concept, but the Syfy show Incorporated brings something fresh to the idea. Science fiction editor John Joseph Adams says the show’s world-building will impress even hardcore science fiction readers. “Most shows don’t come anywhere near the world-building sophistication of a science fiction novel, but …

Earlier this week, Rachel Maddow got a scoop: President Trump’s tax returns. OK, two pages of his tax return from 2005, but still. It was a big deal—mostly because she announced it on Twitter and then made the internet wait for almost an hour and a half (an hour and a half!) before giving up …

First of all, everyone needs to know that there will be AT-AT Walkers at the Star Wars land currently under construction at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Now that that’s out of the way, what else is going on in a galaxy far, far away? Oh, nothing much, just teases for what’s going to happen …
