'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' was a modest hit last night, by TV standards... But what if it was a movie? We did the math, and found out exactly how much money it would have made: Read More...

Hannibal - Season 1

Image credit: CBR

"I think one of the most fun things you can say about [Hannibal] as a series killer, if you can say 'fun,' is that he has such a specific aesthetic," Bryan Fuller tells me when I ask about what makes Hannibal Lecter different from the "Dexters" of the TV landscape. Fuller adds that Lecter--played in NBC's "Hannibal" by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen--is a dandy with a sense of joie de vivre.

The character, first made famous in Thomas Harris' novels before coming to the small screen under actor Brian Cox in "Manhunter" and later "Silence of the Lambs" with Anthony Hopkins, is hard to pin down: a killer of the "free range rude" as he notably says, one who has grabbed our attention for nearly 30 years now in one form or another. Showrunner and writer Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies," "Wonderfalls," "Dead Like Me") has taken a shot at reinventing the character for TV with "Hannibal."

I spoke with Fuller recently about bringing America's favorite serial killer to NBC in the recently-concluded first season of "Hannibal," which is being released to home video this week. We chatted about the appeal of the character, Mikkelsen's approach to the role, the allure or evil, and just what creator Thomas Harris thinks of the latest incarnation of his most popular character.

There have been plenty of real-world attempts to bring some of the vehicles from the "Star Wars" universe into the real world. Whether it be petition to create a real-world Death Star or one man's effort to construct a Millennium Falcon in his own backyard, fans of the franchise have done their best to recreate the tech of both the Empire and the Rebel Alliance.

Now, a Bristol, England-based eBayer is offering up a replica of the notoriously Ewok-vulnerable walker in an auction.

Fangasm - Season 1

Now is the time of the geek on Syfy. After wrapping up its exploration of the cosplay community last week with the first season finale of “Heroes Of Cosplay,” the network introduces us tonight at 10 p.m. to “Fangasm.” A fan culture reality series that mixes “The Real World,” “The Apprentice” and “The Big Bang Theory,” “Fangasm” is a solid product and, most of the time, it is a pretty entertaining one.

Maker Faire 2013 NYC

by Katherine Erlikh

The 2013 World Maker Faire took place last weekend at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing, Queens, and I was fortunate to attend the event on Saturday. Amongst the booths clustered in the Maker Fairegrounds, there was a number of small hidden treasures that I ended up buying, because I really needed them in my life. Please have this accounting of my most excellent impulse buys good life choices.

In October, Oni Press will release the first issue of Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque's greatly anticipated 'Letter 44', a high-tension tale of political intrigue and outer-space adventure.  We here at MTV Geek have already featured the series as one of our 10 Most Anticipated New Comics Of Fall, and now we're excited to present our conversation with Soule and Alburquerque about their inspirations and creative process (and at the same time, give a special sneak-peek at some of Alburquerque's design sketches).

In the long history of celebs teasing their upcoming roles on Facebook, from Simon Pegg as Ant-Man (debunked!) to Vin Diesel as Groot (hasn't been bunked either way yet), here's a doozy: is Megan Fox playing Boba Fett in 'Star Wars VII'? Read More...

Oh. My. Godstiel. As you may have noticed, dear readers, we here at MTV Geek are very excited about the upcoming Season 9 (or, as the internet has christened it, Season Divine) of the CW's "Supernatural". Here's another very, very good reason to be excited - new key art for the 9th season has been revealed. It shows the brothers, one angel (this time with his omnipresent trench coat), one king of Hell, one church and... nope, those aren't fireworks. Isn't that the church from 8.23? And isn't that color palette reminiscent of Purgatory with its bleak grays and murky skies? This poster sets the mood for the upcoming season premiere, which will be airing on Tuesday, October 8th at 9/8c on the CW and all signs so far point towards a season premiere we won't forget.

The show's taken us places so far - it's taken us to heaven, to hell, to Purgatory - the one that's Hell adjacent, not the one in Miami - and Season 9 promises to take us to new highs (lows?) of darkness and despair. The season premiere will pick up immediately following Season 8's finale. Dean and Sam must deal with the fallout of not closing the gates of Hell. Sam may or may not be dying again, must be his turn this season. Castiel is powerless again, his angel powers stolen by Metatron during the ritual which ejected the angels from heaven and shut the pearly gates with a dull, final thump. We've got a hot new angel flying around, too. And, in the meantime, the Winchesters have shoved the King of Hell into the Impala's trunk and called it a day.

So what can the composition of this poster mean? Well, one, it means there will be a lot of fog in the evening. Two, it means... we'll let you guys decide. Take a look at the full poster below and let us know what you think it's hinting at!

This September, we say goodbye to "Dexter" and "Breaking Bad" but today is not a day meant for goodbyes. It's September 24th, and that means we'll all be watching Marvel's new series "Agents of SHIELD" to see if it lives up to the hype. Dear readers, we don't know what it's like where you live, but here in New York it is impossible to go anywhere without having the SHIELD logo shoved in your face on public transit and billboards. It's all over the internet. We've only blogged about it eight billion times on our tumblrs this week. Now is the time... for the Daily Geek, SHIELD edition.

The "Masters of the Universe" line of toys was one of the biggest line of of products targeting boys back in the 80's, and with brawny hero He-Man, toymaker Mattel had a cultural hit on their hands, spawning an animated series and a feature film best left forgotten. But who, exactly, created He-Man? Filmmakers Corey Landis and Roger Lay Jr.--both avid He-Man fans from childhood--wanted to find out who was responsible for the character, interviewing numerous Mattel designers, artists, and executives, creating an almost "Rashamon"-like narrative about the creation of Eternia's shirtless hero in "Toy Masters."

During Power-Con 2013, I got a chance to see about half an hour of footage from the documentary (which is still in the editing process) presented by Lay and Landis who attempt to navigate the personalities, prickly egos, fights, and conflicting stories behind He-Man's creation.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FACES

This just in: time and space have been warped by supernatural cosmic shenanigans that are beyond our mortal understanding, and somehow Sam Winchester's Reddit account has joined this universe's Reddit. Or, it's just a really good novelty account, but you know, that's just highly improbable. Read more about this after the cut!

Last Week at an L.A. Film School event, "Iron Man 3" director Shane Black was joined by his co-writer Drew Pearce to talk about the third chapter in Tony Stark's story. The pair dished on their process (Black tried to have Pearce fired as soon as he came on the project), why fans shouldn't expect to see the "Demon in A Bottle" storyline on the big screen, and how "The Avengers" killed "The Runaways" movie.
