My Trump-addled nerves almost can't handle this much good news, but here's a welcome respite: firstly, everyone's Broadway boyfriend Daveed Diggs will be starring in TNT's Snowpiercer series. Secondly, the fantasy books that inspired the video game The Witcher are getting adapted by Netflix. Deep breaths.Read More
Snowpiercer Pilot Ordered By TNT—Is This the Show That Will Most Closely Resemble Our Current State of Affairs?
2013's Snowpiercer, a film by Bong Joon-ho, was based on a French graphic novel called Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. Now, the film is is being ordered as a television pilot. Sadly, this seems like a most appropriate TV show for our times.Read More

If you've seen Bong Joon Ho's Snowpiercer, you might be wondering about Le Transperceneige, the French graphic novel on which it is based. Thankfully for those of us who don't speak French, this year Titan Comics put out the first-ever English translations, which includes Part 1: Escape and Part 2: Explorers. Part 1 just came out in paperback in June, and I got my grubby, sci-fi-loving hands on a copy.Read More

CHRIS EVANS SLIPS ON A FISH.
Readers, I see a lot of movies. Most of them are good. Some are great. A small number I love. And every once in a while I see a movie that leaves me vibrating with energy as I leave the theater, knowing that what I just saw will stick with me probably for the rest of my life, or at least until the inevitable robot overlords come and conquer the planet. Snowpiercer is one of those. [Spoiler-free review]Read More
Things We Saw Today
Submitted For Your Approval
True, there are explosions and sci-fi weirdness and the aquarium-walled train car I didn't know I wanted, but let's be real: the high point here is Tilda Swinton being a bad guy. Snowpiercer will hit stateside theaters on June 27. As we've reported previously, there was some dispute over whether the film was suitable for Western audiences (because we're dumb, or something). Good news: Snowpiercer will remain uncut. Bad news: it won't be receiving a wide release. If you're hoping to see it in theaters, cross your fingers that it'll be playing nearby.Read More
