Spiderhead Ending Explained

This article contains Spiderhead spoilers. It looks almost blissful. That serene sunset Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth) imagines he’s flying toward might as well be heaven for the good doctor. After all, he’s unlikely to see the real thing once his plane smashes headlong into a mountain. So ends Abnesti Pharmaceuticals’ experiments on the remote island and institute of “Spiderhead,” and so too ends Steve Abnesti. It’s a surprisingly cheeky conclusion to Joseph Kosinski’s new science fiction thriller out now on Netflix. Up to this point, audiences have been asked to consider how dark things can get as the backstories of…

Top Gun: Maverick – Miles Teller’s Full ‘Great Balls of Fire’ Video Released At Last

Top Gun: Maverick may be a movie about fighter pilots in the U.S. Navy, but its primary conflict isn’t between warring nations. In fact, the movie is so unconcerned with the nature of war that the enemy country is never seen. No, outside of the usual Tom Cruise movie conflict of people thinking his character isn’t awesome and coming to accept that he is awesome, the primary struggle in Top Gun: Maverick is between Maverick and Rooster, the son of his former radar intercept officer Goose. In the 1986 original, Goose’s death consumes Maverick with guilt, temporarily preventing him from graduating from the…

Lightyear Ending Explained

This article contains spoilers for LIGHTYEAR. Lightyear, the new movie from Pixar is (as an opening card now famously tells us) the film that little Andy from the Toy Story movies saw and was so excited about that he received a Buzz Lightyear toy as a gift in 1995. The movie follows the adventures of space ranger Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Chris Evans) of Star Command, who is piloting a mission alongside commanding officer Alisha Hawthorne (Uzo Aduba) to explore new, potentially habitable worlds. When an overconfident Buzz accidentally damages the ship and strands it on a planet that is…

Why The Quarry’s Ted Raimi Loves Being “The Horror Guy”

With a resume that reads like a horror geek’s ultimate movie marathon, Ted Raimi has been making unforgettable contributions to the genre for decades. From his brother Sam Raimi’s beloved Evil Dead films to classics like Candyman and The Grudge, he’s just about seen and done it all when it comes to horror. But when he signed on to join the cast of The Quarry, Supermassive Games’ latest entry in their signature line of choose-your-doom horror games, he stepped into a project that felt entirely new. “It’s like nothing I’ve ever done before,” Raimi tells Den of Geek. “On other…

What Ghostbusters Taught Chris Hemsworth About Comedy

For some, the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot is a solid comedy, unfairly maligned and largely underrated. For others, who are hopefully still reading this sentence and haven’t jumped directly to the comments, the 2016 Ghostbusters is a humor graveyard. But for Chris Hemsworth, the movie marked a change in his career path, giving him tools that he still uses today. In a recap of his previous roles for GQ, Hemsworth recalled the trepidation he felt when he came into the film. While Hemsworth did get to do a few jokes in movies such as Cabin in the Woods, The Perfect Getaway, and Vacation, he was primarily known for playing imposing…

Why Spiderhead Took 10 Years to Make

Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are used to movies taking a long time to get made. After all, they were hired to write Deadpool in 2010 and didn’t see the finished film onscreen until 2016. But in the case of their passion project, the new Netflix movie Spiderhead, even the process of getting the Merc with a Mouth into movie theaters was left in the dust. “This was about a 10-year process,” Reese tells Den of Geek on a Zoom chat witth Wernick by his side. “It took almost 10 years to get when that thing was brought to…

Are Any MCU Gods Safe from Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder?

This article contains MCU spoilers Gorr the God Butcher has always been destined to kill a lot of gods in Thor: Love and Thunder. As we saw in the trailer for the upcoming movie, the corpse of the mighty Falligar the Behemoth is evidence of the alien’s immense hatred of deities, and his bid to rid the galaxy of anyone fashioning themselves into a god. When it comes to the inhabitants of the Marvel Cinematic Universe though, you’d be forgiven for the inevitable confusion surrounding one crucial question: Who can actually be defined as a god?  Well, we’re defining a…

Revisiting The Amazing Spider-Man after No Way Home

The Amazing Spider-Man movies were practically born to fail. The genesis of the first movie—where we would watch another Peter Parker origin story—was already deemed a bad idea among many fans when it was announced, and Sony didn’t change any minds over the next few years. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a mess and while it made money, it didn’t make the kind of money Sony wanted and all the big plans for a sequel and beyond fizzled. Next thing you know, there’s a Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he has his own Disneyland ride. The Marc Webb…

Lightyear Post-Credits Scene Will Surprise You

This article contains Lightyear spoilers. After years and decades of providing endings that were final and conclusive to their stories, and then sheepishly having to claim they simply thought of a fun new idea when the sequel invariably came around, Pixar has broken the cycle with Lightyear. The new Toy Story spinoff which sees Chris Evans vocally step into the spaceman’s boots is, by design, a departure for the house that Buzz and Woody built. In addition to replacing Tim Allen with Evans’ cadence as the hero of Star Command, the film is an honest to goodness science fiction action…

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Brings Back Surprising Attack of the Clones Lore

This Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi article contains spoilers. It was a bold move to open episode 5 of Obi-Wan Kenobi with a flashback that put 41-year-old Hayden Christensen back in the boots of a teenage Anakin Skywalker. Director Deborah Chow and her team seemingly chose traditional make-up over digitally de-aging Christensen and Ewan McGregor for the scene where master and apprentice spar more than a decade before the events of the new Disney+ series. And it paid off, with fans immediately posting screengrabs on social media and celebrating that the show had finally given them what they’d been trying to…

Spiderhead Review: You’ll Get a Chris Hemsworth High

Marvel actors must be desperate to play something, anything, that isn’t run of the mill heroics. Since retiring his shield, Chris Evans has launched an entire second career by portraying heels and a-holes, including on Netflix; you could sense Scarlett Johansson’s joy as she shouted Adam Driver into submission in Marriage Story, also on Netflix; and now Chris Hemsworth appears downright giddy as he shimmies across the screen as the most malevolent tech bro this side of Palo Alto in Spiderhead—which is about to debut on Netflix. Yet more than just a showcase for the insidious side of Hemsworth’s now…

Joker 2: Musicals That Could Influence Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn

It’s a funny world we live in when a single bit of possible casting news can turn Film Twitter on its head. Overnight, the fans of 2019’s Joker and those more skeptical toward Todd Phillips making a sequel titled Joker: Folie à Deux switched places when it was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that Lady Gaga is in talks to play Dr. Harleen Quinzel, aka Harley Quinn… and that the movie is going to be a musical. Suddenly those of us who were ambivalent toward the prospect of more Scorsese allusions in murderous clown makeup sat up and took notice…

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Slices Up a Classic Beatles Song

When Netflix is desperate, the knives come out, but fine cutlery is useless on glass. In the Knives Out sequel, the gentleman detective Benoit Blanc, once again played by Daniel Craig with that unplaceable Southern accent, travels to Greece to solve a new crime. He’s apparently been listening to the Beatles for inspiration. Directed by a returning Rian Johnson, the follow-up film will be called Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Here’s another clue for you all. The Walrus did it, and the Walrus was Paul. “That’s some heavy-duty conjecture,” the Knives Out sleuths might say, but “Glass Onion” was…

New Star Wars Movies Must Leave Nostalgia Behind

While Taika Waititi is currently very busy promoting two big Disney releases out in the next few weeks — Lightyear and Thor: Love and Thunder — the writer-director is also preparing to jump to a third major property for the House of Mouse: Star Wars. According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Waititi’s mystery movie could take the “late 2023” release date previously reserved for Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron, which has been delayed due to alleged “creative differences” behind the scenes. How likely it is that Waititi will be able to deliver a blockbuster Star Wars movie in less than 18…

Sam Neill on James Bond: ‘I Wouldn’t Have Taken the Role’

During the first half of the 1980s, the announcement of every new James Bond film was met with speculation about whether then-current 007 Roger Moore would continue in the role. At that point, Moore did not have a long term contract but negotiated his deal on a film-by-film appearance, which sometimes resulted in producer Albert Broccoli’s Eon Productions auditioning new actors for the part as a means of leveraging their position with Moore. However, by the time of his seventh Bond effort, 1985’s A View to a Kill, it was clear that the 57-year-old Moore was simply aging out of…

Lightyear Review: Pixar at Its Most Visually Eye-Popping

Lightyear is a movie that no one asked for, an odd spin-off of a beloved movie franchise that many felt should finally be put up on the shelf for good. But as they’ve done many times before, Pixar has taken a seemingly ill-conceived concept and proven that the weirdest ideas are often some of the best ones.  The secret to Lightyear’s success is that it stands on its own. The clever opening text explains that this is the movie that Andy’s Buzz Lightyear toy was based on, which is useful in that it places it neatly within the Toy Story…

Star Wars: Hayden Christensen Invented Wattanese for Attack of the Clones

This post contains light spoilers for OBI-WAN KENOBI Star Wars is famous for its alien languages. Even in the original film, audiences heard Chewbacca speak in Shyriiwook, Greedo speak in Rodese, and Jawas speak in, uh, Jawaese. Because the series eschews the universal translators found in Star Trek or Doctor Who, new aliens bring with them new speech styles. You would think that inventing new languages would put a great demand on writers and actors, as when Troy Kotsur helped create Tusken sign language for Book of Boba Fett. But that wasn’t the case for one of the prequel trilogy’s most notorious characters. Reflecting on his…

Sam Neill Wishes Event Horizon Was Longer

Sam Neill’s been thinking a lot about the movies of the 90s. The occasion, of course, is his return to the world of thunder lizards for Jurassic World: Dominion, in which he reprises his role as Dr. Alan Grant, the palaeontologist he first played in 1993’s Jurassic Park. Acknowledged by all as a classic, Jurassic Park has spawned five sequels, two of which feature Neill’s Grant. But there’s another classic from the 90s, one that has much more of a cult status, that deserves more. Not just more love, but more running time, apparently. While talking about his many genre…

Jurassic World Dominion Post-Credits Worthy Moment Suggests This Isn’t the End

This article contains Jurassic World Dominion spoilers. It all has been building to this. So goes the marketing for Jurassic World Dominion, the first film in 29 years to feature Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum all back together onscreen as their beloved characters of Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Satler, and Dr. Ian Malcolm, respectively. As such it is being sold as the end of the “Jurassic Era,” as well as the culmination of the original Jurassic Park movies from the 1990s on top of being the finale to the Jurassic World movies, which began by focusing on…

E.T.: The Kids Movie That Is Really About Divorce

The scene is familiar to every child of the ‘80s. Little 10-year-old Elliott and his older brother Michae —still learning how to drive a car—have stolen a van in order to help their newfound alien friend E.T. After rescuing him from the clutches of a team of government agents intent on studying the creature, they rendezvous with Michael’s buddies at a local park. Elliott explains to them that E.T. is a man from outer space and that they’re taking him, via their bicycles, to his spaceship. “Well, can’t he just…beam up?” asks one of the boys. “This is REALITY, Greg,”…
