Spider-Man: No Way Home lifts from a key Marvel comic about the devil

The Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer finds Peter Parker looking for a way to make everyone forget his secret identity, at the cost of losing MJ’s memories. That’s pretty close to an infamous Spider-Man comic from 2007, which swaps Doctor Strange for the devil. Here’s why it explains the new movie. → Read More

Amazon offers a first look at fantasy series Wheel of Time at SDCC 2021

Amazon Studios showrunner Rafe Judkins arrived at San Diego Comic-Con to reveal a first poster for the TV series adapting Robert Jordan’s classic fantasy series The Wheel of Time. Rosamund Pike plays Moiraine in the Amazon exclusive show and three movies. → Read More

Raji harnesses Hindu stories, creating a grand adventure

As a child of the Indian diaspora, Raji: An Ancient Epic poses an exciting proposition to me. Eastern religions and philosophies have influenced some of the west’s most iconic stories, but Raji takes this one step further by adapting one of those sources itself. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Baby Yoda’s self-isolation bassinet

Do you ever have one of those days, months, year, etc? And then one morning you wake up and the only thing you can do is pull the covers back up over your head because today is not happening. Well, The Child (or as we all know and love him, Baby Yoda) has a gif for that. We’re exactly one month out from the release of The Mandalorian’s second season, and all we’ve had to sustain us over the → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Catherine Linton’s ghost in Wuthering Heights

October is nearly upon us and the spoopy times are a-comin’! So let’s talk about Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, obviously. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: The Super Mario 64 loading screen

With the news that Super Mario 64 is coming to Nintendo Switch in just a few weeks, I think it’s apropos that today’s Chosen One be that super weird loading screen from the original Nintendo 64 game. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Robert Pattinson’s Batman smokey eye

The much, much awaited trailer for Matt Reeves’ The Batman dropped this weekend at the DC FanDome, and look, a lot happens in it. But I want to talk about Robert Pattinson. When it was announced last year that our favorite disaster chaos god was taking on the cowl, the reactions were mixed — but not from me. My reaction was THRILLED. RPattz was going to be RBats?? → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Bill Hader not rereading It

I am, admittedly, not a horror fan. I don’t like being scared, I don’t need other stories to get in my head and freak me out. But you know what? I almost saw It. The cast seemed great, and Stephen King’s a good writer, right? OK, I’m lying, the real reason I almost saw It was because of this interview Bill Hader gave while promoting It: Chapter 2. → Read More

Exclusive: In Hollywoodland starring Yetide Badaki trailer reveal

We are so excited to reveal the trailer for In Hollywoodland, written by and starring SYFY FANGRRLS resident favorite Yetide Badaki. Directed by Jessica Sherif, In Hollywoodland is a dark fantastical short film that follows an actress Zodwa (Badaki) as she heads toward an audition that could change her life. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Taika Waititi cradling Baby Yoda

We here at FANGRRLS have spoken at great length about how much we love Taika Waititi. We’ve also spoken at great length about how much we love Baby Yoda aka The Child. But now? Now we’re going to speak at great length about how much we love them together. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Olaf coping in Frozen II

Early on in Frozen II, Elsa sings another b*tchin’ song connecting with — you know what, it doesn’t matter. Through a series of events, the entirety of Arendelle is forced to flee from their homes as a mass disaster strikes the kingdom. Does this sound familiar? Sure, we’re not fleeing our homes, but rather stuck inside of them as we hope for the best, but the familiarity lies in how little → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: D-O, the most polite droid

There’s a lot happening in The Rise of Skywalker — new characters, new planets, new droids. You all know I love a droid! TRoS gives us one of my favorite new lil dudes, D-O. → Read More

Exclusive: Read an excerpt of Sam Maggs' debut, Con Quest!

Sam Maggs is no stranger to SYFY FANGRRLS. She's got her hands in some of our absolute favorite properties of all time, from Spider-Man to Star Trek, and we're so thankful she's there to represent our, well, fangirling. But now, Maggs is back with something brand new on her plate: original fiction! Her debut novel Con Quest! came out just last week. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: The moon in Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series is at times sweet, at times dark, at times strange, and at times absolutely g*ddamn terrifying. We’ve talked about Majora’s Mask, the follow-up to 1998’s critically-acclaimed and much lauded best-Zelda-of-all-time Ocarina of Time, before. It’s a critical darling in its own right, but it is a weird, weird game. Ostensibly, you get transported to another world and → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: TGI Spideys from Into the Spider-Verse

We know that our fav Clearly-a-Millennial-Spider-Dad made some questionable decisions in his universe, some poor life choices, but one that I believe was outside his control? T G I Spideys There is no way this was a bad idea. I am a sucker for a fun chain restaurant — Chili’s? Sign me up. Friday’s? Sure! Cheesecake Factory? Yes. So you want to combine the kitschiness of a chain restaurant with my → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: The Sephiroth chorus in Final Fantasy VII

Don’t lie to me — you’ve thought about it. We’ve all thought about it. We’ve all wished for a desperately intense orchestra arrangement to play every time we appear, with a demonic and beautiful chorus of voices crying out our name in staccato beats. No? Just me? Final Fantasy VII’s soundtrack is already great, but the track “One Winged Angel” that plays for Sephiroth? In a word? Perfection. → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Becket and Mori flirt-training in Pacific Rim

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi masterpiece Pacific Rim did more than give us the gift of injecting the phrase "drift compatible" into our everyday lexicon, it gave us a truly perfectly balanced pair of characters in Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi). Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the scene where Raleigh is training with potential partners for a co-pilot → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Can’t Hardly Wait, a subtle sci-fi classic

In 1998, I went to the movies with my best friend and we saw Can’t Hardly Wait and it was everything. Seriously, everything. It had humor, heart, romance, drama, an angel, Jason Segal — like seriously, everything (and everyone) was in this movie. On its surface, it’s another ‘90s high school movie: there’s cliques, ridiculous romantic entanglements, a bangin’ soundtrack (not one, but two Smash → Read More

Chosen One of the Day: Calcifer from Howl’s Moving Castle

Home is where the hearth is, and if that hearth is inhabited by a tiny, saucy fire demon who makes possibly the most delicious looking breakfast in all of animation, then home is doubly where the hearth is. In Howl’s Moving Castle, the Studio Ghibli movie very loosely based on Dianna Wynne Jones’ novel of the same name, Calcifer is a fire demon with a mysterious connection to Howl. You might call → Read More
