  • Blade Runner 2049 is about to hit theaters, and while the reviews have been good, what we’re really interested in is whether or not it will give us a definitive answer to the question posed by the original movie: is Deckard a replicant? (And if so, why does he age?)

    As we gear up to re-enter Blade Runner’s world of dark intrigue and murderous androids, let’s take a look at a few more of the best humanoid robots that pop culture has to offer.

  • Hana Mae Lee’s birthday is today and while she’s best known as the incredibly soft spoken yet powerful beatboxer Lilly in Pitch Perfect, the real Hana Mae is a bona fide badass and funny as hell. To celebrate her birthday, we’ve created a wish list of literary roles that we’d love to see Hana Mae Lee play. Listen up, Hollywood. We’ve got some big plans.

  • They maybe small and quiet folk, but hobbits sure know how to throw a party! Since Bilbo and Frodo share a birthday, they like to have one giant bash, thrown by good ol’ Samwise. Don’t worry, Sam knows the key ingredients for throwing an epic hobbit party, so of course this shindig was a success.

  • Fathom Events is bringing a beautifully remastered version of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial back to the big screen for a special 35 anniversary event on September 17 and 20 only! We're positively over the MOON.

  • Idris Elba turns 44 this week and between the birthday cake and the sporadic bursts of confetti at the Quirk Book offices, we’re dreaming up ways to get our silver screen favorite into more literary adaptations. (The Dark Tower didn’t do it for us. Our dreams are bigger.) While we scheme up ways to get Idris Elba’s agent to call us back, here are a few literary adaptations that we would love to see him in.

  • It’s August 31, which means that Life is Strange: Before the Storm is upon us! This prequel to one of 2015’s breakout video games, Life is Strange, tells more of Chloe Price’s story. If you played LiS, you probably remember this blue-haired rebel, whom protagonist Max Caulfield saves from a murderous prep schooler by rewinding time.

    LiS is all about Max and Chloe’s exploration of Max’s new powers, which come in handy for the pair. They’re searching for Chloe’s friend Rachel, but ultimately dig up way more dirt than they intended on the small town of Arcadia Bay...which puts them in danger. Often.

    As we waited for Before the Storm, we got to thinking: what other characters would’ve benefited from Max’s powers? Plenty, we realized. Here are six characters whose lives would have been much easier if they’d just been able to travel a few minutes into the past.
