THE CREATOR Is a Visual Marvel Saddled With an Uninspired Script
Nerdist » Sci-Fi

The Creator is one of the most visually impressive science fiction movies I have ever seen. After years of Hollywood giving us rushed, incomplete, unconvincing CGI, the film delivers an absolute special effects knockout. The movie’s artificial intelligence robots look completely real. As do the advanced technology and large-scale settings that populate the futuristic world of the film. It’s hard to see the proverbial seams between VFX, actual actors, and practical effects. And if The Creator‘s story and dialogue were even half as good as its aesthetics it would be a truly great sci-fi entry. U ..read more

Would you leave behind the person you love the most to travel the cosmos? Obviously that’s not an easy question. It’s one that gets even harder if your journey would force your spouse into years of solitude they might not survive. But what if there was a way to make sure they weren’t alone? That would to seem to make the choice at least a little easier, but that’s far from the case in the first trailer for FOE starring Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal. Because the only thing worse than leaving your wife might be leaving her with a robot version of yourself. Amazon Studios’ upcoming film, which a ..read more

We love ourselves some Judy Greer here at Nerdist. Put her in more things. Put her in everything! She’s always good. When she was in Halloween (2018)? We loved it! (And subsequently we did not love what happened in Halloween Kills.) Greer takes center stage in Aporia, a new sci-fi thriller which is set to premiere at the 2023 Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal. In it, Greer deals with debilitating grief by messing with time. It doesn’t go how she wants. Take a look at the trailer below. Aporia feels like a mix of Primer and The Butterfly Effect, but completely centered around loss. Greer’s ch ..read more

THE CREATOR Teaser Trailer Makes A.I. a Threat and a Friend
Nerdist » Sci-Fi
by Rotem Rusak
1y ago
It’s a complicated time for the prospect of artificial intelligence. More than ever, it seems like all the movies warning us about the threat of A.I. have more than a little merit to them. The latest of this ilk, a movie called The Creator seems to really understand the dangers posed by giving A.I. too much power and control over our lives. But at the same time, it also goes out of its way to humanize the artificial intelligence—a fascinating prospect. Where exactly The Creator falls on the morality of A.I. isn’t clear from its first teaser trailer. But we’re excited to explore more of this ne ..read more

65’s Adam Driver and Ariana Greenblatt Discuss Favorite Adam Driver Memes
Nerdist » Sci-Fi

Regardless of the role he plays, Adam Driver makes an impression. This time, it’s as Commander Mills in 65. The sci-fi film sees Driver end up in a parallel universe with a young charge—a parallel universe that involves prehistoric Earth. That means dinosaurs and all the danger inherent to that type of environment. When we talked to Driver and his costar Ariana Greenblatt, who plays Koa, about the movie, we discussed how Driver’s performances often make such an impression that they lead to memes. We’re not surprised that Driver doesn’t have a favorite Adam Driver meme. We will forever hold ..read more

ALIEN Star Yaphet Kotto Saw Real-Life UFOs and Almost Played Han Solo

Given its vitality, its artistry, its originality and the sheer and indefatigable terror that it still delivers today, it’s hard to believe that Alien is a 40-year-old movie. But even for a glossy sci-fi movie set in the distant future, Ridley Scott’s film has always exuded a timelessness thanks to a uniquely blue-collar sensibility in its storytelling⁠—characterizing the crew of the Nostromo as “truckers in space”⁠—and a cast composed mostly of established actors who were noticeably older than most typical space adventurers. Yaphet Kotto was 40 years old when Alien was released in theaters ..read more

Taika Waititi to Take a ‘Crack’ at FLASH GORDON Animated Film
Nerdist » Sci-Fi
by Kyle Anderson

Thor: Ragnarok took the established characters and lore of the MCU’s Thor films and turned it into a comedic, cosmic odyssey. It’s a bright, colorful adventure with a strapping, somewhat silly hero at its center. Surely a perfect proof of concept for its writer-director, Taika Waititi, to take a stab at the oldest cosmic adventurer in fiction: Flash Gordon. According to Deadline, Waititi is attached in some creative capacity for a new animated Flash Gordon movie at Disney/Fox. Deadline has heard Waititi would write and direct the film, but his camp apparently just says he’s taking a “crack” a ..read more

Ridley Scott’s RAISED BY WOLVES Looks Real Weird

You can’t make movies like Alien and Blade Runner without forever linking yourself to the science fiction genre. Ridley Scott has made a wide variety of movies and produced an even larger swath of others, but whether it’s great movies like The Martian or interesting failures (I said it) like Prometheus or Alien: Covenant, we just want to see Scott and Sci-Fi back together again. That’s why the trailer for HBO Max‘s new series Raised by Wolves is so exciting. And weird. The series focuses on two androids who must raise human children on a mysterious virgin planet. Religious differences threat ..read more

Why You Should Watch ULTRA Q, the Japanese X-FILES
Nerdist » Sci-Fi

We’re all looking for stuff to watch during this open-ended quarantine. Stuff to take our minds off of the uncertainty and transport us to a fantastical world. At least that’s what I’m doing. I’ve been watching stuff like marbles racing for weeks. But as a big fan of both sci-fi and whimsy, I’ve found a ton of comfort in Japanese tokusatsu, or special effects, shows. The one that has truly blown me away is Ultra Q. Though The Twilight Zone was the contemporary American show it sought to emulate, it feels to me more like The X-Files but with giant monsters. It rules. In the mid ’60s, followin ..read more
