  1. Things We Saw Today: All Hail Toyffrey Baratheon, First Of His Mold

    For fun, have all your Barbies line up to slap him one at a time.

    We can tell we're going to have a lot of fun with this Dark Horse Game of Thrones figure we found on io9's Toybox. Who's up for a Chibi Project-style series of... "experiments?"

    Life finds a way.

    Movie Avatar, not cartoon Avatar. Ran and Shaw would've been too cool.

  3. These Are Literally The Most Literal Movie Posters We’ve Seen Today

    In the strictest sense.

    I have a liking for literal humor, so these clever movie posters by Danish Ahmed tickled my funny bone (figuratively). To be honest, I kind of want to see his version of The Wolf of Wall Street. It's got potential.

  6. Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington Are Locked In For the Avatar Sequels, If Anyone Still Cares

    Officially Official

    It's been over four years since Avatar came out, and for most of those years we've known that director James Cameron is ready to get his thinly veiled metaphor on in an ever-increasing number of sequels. First it was two, then maybe three. But fans chomping at the bit to see the return of Dances With Blue, Alien Wolves will have to wait awhile, 'cause stars Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington just now officially signed on to star.

  8. What’s the Difference Between “Being” and “Controlling” Your Video Game Avatar? PBS Idea Channel Explains

    Living in Tron-world makes this whole thing a moot point.

    When playing a video game are you simply controlling an avatar, or are you being that avatar? It's a complicated distinction without a true binary, but that's not going to stop PBS Idea Channel from tackling it. When does a game's avatar cross from being controlled into simply being? Watch and learn.

  9. James McAvoy Compares The Scale Of X-Men: Days of Future Past To Avatar

    Just Go With It

    We knew they were going big with X-Men: Days of Future Past just by the sheer size of the cast but actor James McAvoy has put it into perspective for us.

  10. Heroes of Sci-Fi and Their True Loves

    Awwwwww

    Rhett Hildebrandt used these graphics of sci-fi/fantasy OTPs (that's One True Pairing, y'all) to propose to his fiancée through social media (I'll let When Geeks Wed explain how). She said yes, but the drawings are still up on the internet for the rest of us to enjoy.

  11. James Cameron Working With Steven Charles Gould to Pen Four Avatar Novels

    It's almost like he thinks the ground-breaking 3D effects weren't the main reason we were all so obsessed.

    The universe of one of the most visually stunning movies in the past few years will now be relegated to our mind's eye: James Cameron-- who hasn't yet finished the screenplay the three Avatar sequels-- is now working with science fiction writer Steven Charles Gould to write four stand-alone novels set in the Avatar universe.

  12. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Creator Set To Help Write James Cameron’s Avatar Sequel

    And So It Begins

    James Cameron's Avatar sequels have been a topic of conversation since the unbelievably successful first installment was released in 2009, and yet we still haven't seen the recognizable blue Na'vi of the series in a single sequel, let alone two or three. Still, Avatar will be back, and now Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles creator Josh Friedman has been hired to help write the screenplay for Avatar 2, according to a source at The Wrap.

  13. Probably Not Drift Compatible: Seven Fantastic Examples of Technobabble

    A selection of defining uses of technobabble in sci-fi and beyond

    Technobabble -- the scientific-sounding gibberish that scientist characters spew in every episode of Star Trek -- is the dilithium crystal in the warp engine that makes science fiction run. It can get to ridiculous levels. Ron Moore steered clear of it in Battlestar Galactica because his Trek scripts filled up with [INSERT TECH HERE], but ultimately it's hard to get by without it. Technobabble generally does make sense on a superficial level, since there's so much speculative science out there that there's bound to be a field related to whatever the story requires. For better or for worse, take a look at the greatest ways technobabble has been put to use.

  17. Say “I See You” to Mike Basson and His Creepy Avatar Nightclub [Video]

    You won't find any airbending in this Cape Town nightclub. You probably won't find any high-def imagery or any $237 million budgets, either. What you will find at Avastar, however, is Mike Basson and a lot of blue breasts. Yes, this is an Avatar nightclub.

  18. Avengers Makes $1 Billion, Two New Marvel Films In The Works

  19. James Cameron Says He’ll Possibly Make a Fourth Avatar Movie, Then No More James Cameron Movies

    Oh Really?

    James Cameron has announced that he is officially tired of making all that money and winning all those awards. In an interview with The New York Times, the big-budget filmmaker said that he might make one more Avatar movie after the second and third movies he has planned -- and then that's basically it. Because he's really into deep-sea diving these days, and also, he has made more money than any one person should, so it's probably cool to retire now. Well, can we blame him?

  20. Hey Everybody: Legend of Korra Has a Premiere Date, and It’s Really Quite Soon

    There's an appa for that

    It seems like we've been waiting on a firm release date for the long anticipated sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender for ages and ages, and, without further fuss, here it is: Saturday, April 14th at 11am on Nickelodeon. That means we've got precisely a month before we finally get to see Korra kick butt. With the release date announcement has come an official shortening of the name of the series from Avatar: The Legend of Korra to a simple The Legend of Korra, and, of course, a new trailer. You may now foam at the mouth. Sheesh, when I was an animation obsessed kid, I had to get up at eight to watch Batman: The Animated Series. (news via Korra Nation, video via Bleeding Cool.)
