Although Klingons are fierce and warrior-like as a culture, their latest expansion into Earth territory isn’t as hostile as you might expect—because weirdly enough, they’re setting up shop in Sweden for a new cultural center dedicated to teaching us humans about Klingon life.

The Crimes of the Guardians of the Galaxy, According to Their Pants (and James Gunn) The Crimes of the Guardians of the Galaxy, According to Their Pants (and James Gunn)

In the prison scenes in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, our gathered heroes unite first as inmates rather than cosmos savers—with matching yellow prison garb. Their trousers, however, don’t just have a cool spacey design on them, they actually fill out a long list of felonies committed by our not-so-good-guys.

No, a New Star Wars Comic Does Not 'Explain' Rey's Force Abilities No, a New Star Wars Comic Does Not 'Explain' Rey's Force Abilities

Now that the latter film is finally out, Hamill was able to spill the beans on what…

A Porg Made of Sushi Rice Is Probably Chewbacca's New Porg Meal of Choice A Porg Made of Sushi Rice Is Probably Chewbacca's New Porg Meal of Choice

Before he got to know the little space-puffins of Ahch-To, Chewie was all in on his roasted Porg. Now that he’s befriended them, and even seemingly turned a few into fellow co-pilots by the end of The Last Jedi, he’d probably be more inclined to snack on this giant, bento-box-friendly alternative.

Everyone Forgets the New Guy in the CW's Adorably Goofy Superhero Show Skit Everyone Forgets the New Guy in the CW's Adorably Goofy Superhero Show Skit

Instead of showing everyone punching the crap out of stuff, this year’s now-traditional joint advertisement for the return of the CW’s DC shows is a bit more relaxed, with the emphasis on the gang coming together to put on their costumes and kick ass.
