‘Cocaine Bear’ was a happy ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ reunion

Han Solo famously said, “It’s not wise to upset a Wookie,” but it’s also not wise to upset a black bear that has consumed an absurd amount of cocaine. The ferocity of furry creatures isn’t the only connection between Star Wars and Cocaine Bear. → Read More

The R-rating was never in question, but 'Cocaine Bear' producer Chris Miller says the title was

Cocaine Bear, the upcoming movie about — you guessed it — a bear who does a bunch of cocaine, was always going to be rated R, according to producer Chris Miller. The bear goes on a bloody, gory, coke-fueled rampage in the north Georgia woods. → Read More

'Knock at the Cabin' twist ending and post-credits sequence, explained

The central tension in M. Night Shyamalan's new film Knock at the Cabin is whether or not the four armed home invaders who take a family hostage are correct or not. They claim that, unless this family decides to willingly sacrifice one of themselves, the world will end. The family, naturally, thinks they’re either lying or crazy — or both. → Read More

Does 'Knock at the Cabin' have a twist? Shyamalan says it's 'a jury movie'

Ever since M. Night Shyamalan shocked audiences with the ending of his breakout film, The Sixth Sense, he’s been commonly thought of as a master of the twist-ending. It’s certainly not an unearned moniker, and he’s made several twist-ending movies since, but there’s more to the director than just twists. → Read More

'Knock at the Cabin' flips the apocalypse and home invasion genres, Shyamalan says

Knock at the Cabin is not M. Night Shyamalan’s first time depicting the end of the world. Both Signs and The Happening were about regular people dealing with the potential end of civilization, and After Earth is post-apocalyptic. But the new film, now in theaters, certainly feels more relevant than his previous takes on the end times. That, he tells SYFY WIRE, is by design. → Read More

M. Night Shyamalan's 'Knock at the Cabin' cameo was his 'highest degree of difficulty'

If you’re sitting down to watch one of M. Night Shaymalan’s movies, chances are you’re on the lookout for the twist. → Read More

New 'Knock at the Cabin' poster turns home invasion into classy art

Check out a new poster for M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming film Knock at the Cabin. → Read More

M3GAN’s kills, ranked

M3GAN, Universal’s new horror movie, slayed at the box office, winning the past weekend with a haul of more than $30 million off of a budget of just $12 million. However, the box office isn’t the only thing M3GAN slayed. The titular robot doll turns murderous after she decides she knows better than her creator, Gemma (Allison Williams), about what’s best for Cady, Gemma’s niece. → Read More

M3GAN is a tech-based horror who is ‘more like a vampire than like a doll’

M3GAN is the latest in a long line of killer dolls that have delighted and terrified horror movie and TV audiences for decades. → Read More

The story behind M3GAN's iconic TikTok dance sequence

If there was a moment when M3GAN went from “a fun-looking flick from all-star horror producers James Wan and Jason Blum” to “instant icon status,” it was in the first trailer when the killer A.I.-powered doll starts dancing. → Read More

James Wan, Jason Blum, and Allison Williams agree: M3GAN would ruin Chucky in a fight

Here at SYFY WIRE, we’re quite partial to Chucky. He made his debut in the 1988 horror flick Child’s Play, and he is currently scaring, stabbing, and wise-cracking in SYFY and USA Network’s Chucky series, which recently wrapped up its sophomore season. Chucky is the killer doll to beat, but it turns out he might have been beaten. → Read More

Every bit of VFX in 'The Way of Water' had to be fully rebuilt from the first 'Avatar'

After 13 years, moviegoers have returned to Pandora because Avatar: The Way of Water is now in theaters. However, for the VFX animators behind the film, it wasn’t just a matter of “going back” to the Pandora that had been created for James Cameron’s 2009 original film. → Read More

'Avatar: The Way of Water' animators explain how the ocean Na'vi are different

'Avatar: The Way of Water' animators explain how the ocean Na'vi are different from jungle ones. → Read More

'Avatar: The Way of Water': Sigourney Weaver may have also broken Tom Cruise’s breath-holding record

Kate Winslet isn’t the only member of the Avatar sequel’s cast who has mastered The Way of Water. → Read More

The case for why Santa Claus should've been in 'The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special'

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which premiered on Disney+ last week, introduced somebody very special to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, for as holly jolly as Kevin Bacon might be, the Marvel Studios Special Presentation failed to canonize one of the greatest characters from Marvel Comics. → Read More

'Godzilla 2000' kind of has the same plot as Jordan Peele's 'Nope.' Kind of.

Is Nope a kaiju movie? You could make the case that it is. While at first blush it has the premise and aesthetics of an alien invasion movie, the eventual twist reveals that it’s more of a monster giant movie. Still, it doesn’t feel quite right to classify Nope as a kaiju movie. Luckily, there is a movie — one unquestionably of the kaiju genre — that kind of has the same plot as Nope: Godzilla… → Read More

'Battleship,' now streaming, is one of the stupidest movies ever made. It's perfect.

Have you ever played Battleship? It’s a classic board game. You and an opponent take on the roles of two rival naval admirals in what appears to be roughly World War II-era combat. You take turns trying to attack your opponent, attempting to guess and surmise where on the ocean grid their ships are hiding. If you sink all your opponent's ships, you win. → Read More

'Wakanda Forever' demonstrates the power and limitations of live-action superhero stories

They say nobody stays dead in superhero comics. Whether through resurrection, multiversal duplicates, or a good old-fashioned ret-con, superhero characters never stay gone for long. At worst, this revolving door of death undermines the stakes. At best, though, the fact that anybody can, in theory, come back at any time means there are tons of surprises, and that not even the grave can stop old,… → Read More

Thank goodness people realized that 'Starship Troopers' is actually a masterpiece

When Starship Troopers came out 25 years ago today, it bombed at the box office. The ruins of Buenos Aries after the Bugs destroyed it have nothing compared to what a critical and commercial bomb Starship Troopers was. Thank goodness that, a quarter-century later, society has come around and hailed Starship Troopers as a sci-fi classic. → Read More

Namor actor Tenoch Huerta doesn't take playing the 'bad guy who destroys' Wakanda lightly

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is a movie that will grapple with the death of T’Challa, the Black Panther — and in the process, attempt to help fans in the real world process the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman, who made the character iconic in the first film. → Read More
