It's the must-see event of the year. Today, the continental U.S. will witness a total solar eclipse—the first since 1979. For those unable to see it in person, no fear: Time's editor at large Jeffrey Kluger is hosting a live-stream with spaceflight historian Amy Shira Teitel starting at 12 p.m. Et. Nasa is also sharing images captured before, during and after the eclipse, via 11 spacecraft, at least three Nasa aircraft, more than 50 high-altitude balloons and the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Over the course of 100 minutes, 14 states across will experience more than two minutes of darkness in the middle of the day; a partial eclipse will be viewable across all of North »
Sweet Christmas, everyone – this year’s Awesome Con was busy as all get-out and chock-full of cool things to see and do, and con season is rushing by so fast that I’m just now getting to my recap! (We can also blame the con crud for this, alas. It’s been following me around for a solid month.) As always, there were way more activities than one mere mortal could get to. And on top of that, this was the first year where I really saw multiple events surrounding the con that were either not directly affiliated with the con but inspired by it, or connected to it but not part of the main con experience.
So let’s start there. First off, I was part of a pre-con round-table interview Awesome Con set up with the inestimable Stan Lee. Stan answered many great questions. He talked about what »

In honor of the first total solar eclipse visible within the United States in 99 years, Facebook and Nasa will host several streams for viewers who wish to experience the event from the comfort of their computers, smartphones, or smart TV sets.
Nasa will broadcast the eclipse on its Facebook page from unique vantage points coast-to-coast on Monday, with coverage beginning at noon Et. The eclipse itself is expected to begin at 1:15 pm Et and at roughly 4:15 pm -- with the totality, in which the sun is fully obscured by the moon, occurring at 2:45 pm and lasting for less than two minutes. Facebook will deploy a special notification within users’ News Feeds for access to the live broadcast. And Nasa's coverage will be available on the ground and in the sky -- including from the International Space Station -- with options for 4K resolution and 360-degree video.

Writing duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick scored a huge hit with Deadpool last year, but Life, directed by Daniel Espinosa, represents something very different. A straight-ahead, tense genre thriller, it's not based on an existing franchise or comic book, »
Are there rules on how to make a space epic? If there are, Luc Besson has certainly never heard them because in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, he takes the genre upside down, gives it a shake and rattle, and delivers one of the most positively bonkers films of the year. Based on the long running Franco-Belgian comic book Valérian and Laureline, which served as inspiration for other Besson projects like The Fifth Element, the film follows Major Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Sergeant Laureline (Cara Delevingne), special agents of the World State Federation who enforce intergalactic safety, as they travel to a distant planet to retrieve a rare creature — perhaps the last of its kind in the universe — from the hands of toad-like aliens who run their business in a market straight out of Casablanca.

Stx Entertainment has released an extended clip from Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which comes a month after the final Valerian trailer debuted. This extended clip gives viewers an introduction to Alpha, the City of a Thousand Planets, which Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are returning home to. As they make their way through the aforementioned City, they're updated on the status of Alpha through a computerized voice named Alex. We also get a glimpse at several of the different areas of Alpha where thousands of different species live.
Stx has also announced that the never-before-seen Valerian opening sequence, which details the creation of the film's Space Station Alpha, will be attached to prints of Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Besson's spectacular vision of the future will be presented exclusively in 3D and Premium Large Formats. Participating exhibitors to feature the exclusive Valerian opening sequence include select »

Talk about a close encounter.
Preparing for his first space flight in April, astronaut Jack Fischer tweeted that his favorite song, Garth Brooks‘ hit “The River,” was the first on his pre-launch playlist. On Thursday, Fischer got to meet and talk with the country music superstar—while in space. “I think you have so many great songs and so many great messages but it’s the heart that you put in every performance and the soul that you put into all those songs that make them so impactful,” Fischer told a tearful Brooks. “‘The River’ in particular was pretty much »

For Sony Pictures, the meaning of Life is determined by tenaciously throwing massive amounts of money at a B-movie horror flick script.
Even under the weight of its often illogical script, Life manages not to flatline in spite of a series of rather idiotic decisions made by supposedly intelligent people. I'm even curious to see where the story might go next; if Life ever did find a way again.
The term "life" refers to the historical discovery of an initially microscopic living organism brought back to the International Space Station (Iss) by a exploratory spacecraft sent to Mars. It's such a momentous occasion for mankind that grade school children give the organism a name: Calvin.
While the scientist charged with examining Calvin grows fond of his rapidly growing subject, other members of the six-person crew grow concerned. Before you know it Calvin is on the loose following the film's most gripping scene, »
As the summer continues to roll on, that means we have another great week of horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases to look forward to. The folks at Scream Factory are keeping themselves plenty busy this Tuesday, as they’re resurrecting both The Lawnmower Man and Island of Terror on Blu-ray, as well as their high-def The Paul Naschy Collection, and Arrow Video has put together an incredible two-disc limited Blu-ray set of Dario Argento’s directorial debut, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, that any fan of the Master of Horror will want to add to their collections. And, if you missed it in theaters, the horror/sci-fi thriller Life will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD formats, too.

Did you see Life when it was released in cinemas back in March? I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t, as it dramatically flopped, pulling in a meagre $30 million domestic on a $58 million budget. At the time, the film was widely criticized as being a blatant Alien ripoff and, with Alien: Covenant on the way, audiences seem to have figured they may as well wait for the real deal.
Well, Alien: Covenant is now here and it’s good, but it’s not quite the return to form we all hoped it would be. So, with the Life Blu-Ray set to be released on June 20th, maybe it’s time to reevaluate the movie? Let’s start with the first ten minutes, which has just been released by Sony Pictures and can be viewed above. The video showcases the film’s striking opening long shot, in which we »
