Amazing Sci-Fi Ship Models Made Entirely Out Of Paper

Do your fingers ever start to go numb just from looking at the amazingly intricate work that some steady-handed artist had the time and dexterity to complete? I had to finish typing that sentence with my nose because these papercraft models are almost too amazing to be real. To kick it off, check out the lunar module from Apollo 13.

Elle Fanning Will Headline This Futuristic Coming Of Age Tale

maleficent

The younger of the acting sisters, Elle Fanning is turning into quite the prolific actress, and one whose talent is rarely up for debate. So we’ll gladly keep welcoming her here in the land of sci-fi, and her next project sounds like she might be perfect for it, as she and Elysium‘s Diego Luna have both signed on to star in the — wait for it — post-apocalyptic drama IO. Teenage girls are the only things that matter after the world goes to shit.

Snowpiercer: Harvey Weinstein Says He Was Right All Along About Edits

snowpiercer

Last year, one of the most frustrating “events” in science fiction was the seemingly needless delay keeping Bong Joon-ho‘s dystopian masterpiece Snowpiercer away from a U.S. distribution. The problem? The Weinstein Company co-head Harvey Weinstein assumed that U.S. audiences wouldn’t grasp the movie, and when that imploded, he then assumed that no one would go and watch this flick in theaters. Here we are, many months after the film’s acclaimed run on domestic VOD, and Weinstein recently had the gall to brag about how he was right all along.

Ejecta Trailer Abducts Your Attention With Atmospheric Creepiness

Is it just me, or does it seem like there’s an indie alien abduction movie coming out seemingly as often as the moon does. While I was writing that sentence, two more picked up distribution. The one we’re talking about now is Ejecta, the latest film from Septic Man director Tony Burgess. It probably won’t be a genre gamechanger or anything, but I’m down with anything Julian Richings gets involved with. Well, except for real aliens.

Help Save More Out Of Print Sci-Fi Like This

scifi

You might recall a few years ago when we talked about a beyond genius idea that the organization Singularity & Co. had where they started up a Kickstarter campaign to help save science fiction, in a sense, by bringing out-of-print books back into circulation, among other things. The success that campaign brought has inspired Singularity (not that one) to try it all over again. So if you missed out the first time, you have no excuses now.
