Greta Gerwig’s acclaimed Lady Bird has passed Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight to become the highest-grossing film in the history of A24. The latter triumphed at the Oscars last year with a somewhat surprising (and controversial) Best Picture win. The former, meanwhile, looks poised to be one of the top contenders at next March’s Academy Awards, especially for Gerwig and stars Saorise Ronan and Laurie Metcalf. Lady Bird will go down as one of the best-reviewed films in the history of Rotten Tomatoes with only one “rotten” review and a transcendent 99 percent score.

A24 is on a roll in recent years, churning out a string of critically celebrated films created ...

NASA astronauts have celebrated the ultimate movie night, as the crew of the International Space Station settled down to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

So many of the world’s astronauts were inspired by science fiction. That’s why it hardly seems fair to Disney and NASA for the crew of the ISS to miss out on the latest Star Wars film. Earlier this month, they confirmed that they were transmitting a digital copy of The Last Jedi to the ISS. It seems to be becoming a tradition; in 2015, astronauts also watched The Force Awakens on the space station.

17 Characters Star Trek Wants You To Forget About

0

Across seven different series and 10 feature films, Star Trek introduces audiences to some of the most iconic characters in science fiction.

From heroic Starfleet Captains to detached, ingenious Science Officers, to cantankerous doctors with no bedside manner, many of these characters have become the byword for certain well-known screen archetypes.

It is difficult to overstate how many times these characters have been parodied and copied. Yet, even a franchise as influential as Star Trek doesn’t hit the mark every time. Throughout the years, some of their characters have been not fully realized, are instantly forgettable, or just plain annoying.

You may find profit-obsessed Ferengi bartender Quark grating, but he adds layers of humor to ...

[WARNING: Spoilers below for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.]

Closed captioning screenings for Star Wars: The Last Jedi reveal a piece of dialogue that was the subject of a minor but hotly contested debate. Director Rian Johnson filled the follow-up to The Force Awakens with surprises, some of which have led to strong reactions in certain circles of fans – and an audience score on Rotten Tomatoes that doesn’t agree with the critics. One of the more interesting additions to Johnson’s film was expanded use of the Force in a ...
