A Safe Space
Posted By:

Amazon's singular supehero series The Boys certainly includes some very dark elements but even when the gore is flying, spinning, whizzing through the air and or dripping from every surface, the tone is more often comedic than grim.

Spinoff Gen V showrunners Michelle Fazekas and Tara Butters also have a history of genre dramas with a healthy comedic sheen, so it's surprising that our first look at their new series is all bloody and terrifying.

Last Dragon
Posted By:

HBO's upcoming zombie apocalypse drama The Last of Us starring Games of Thrones' Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey just upped the dragon factor in their trailer.

Ending with a giant reptilian thing climbing out of a pit. We don't want to say lizard because its front feet look more like human hands.

Fantasy Wins
Posted By:

Reviews for survival horror The Callisto Protocol are coming in and like Gotham Knights, some major sites (Gamespot) have scored it a terrifying 5 out of 10. Its current review average on Metacritic is 74.

Horizon Forbidden West, Stray and Grounded garnered critical praise but not as much as fantasy titles Elden Ring and God of War: Ragnarok.

Guardians 3 Trailer

Marvel have released the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3.

While more Guardians films might be made, this will be James Gunn's final Marvel film - he's in the captain's chair over at DC now - and probably also the end for this group of characters.
