Nessie's got nothing on this newly unearthed, razor-toothed sea monster

Pilosaurs were immense marine beasts that lived from roughly 145 million years ago to 66 million years ago. Even the Mosasaur that got its cinematic moment in Jurassic World may have had trouble competing with these Late Jurassic beasts, which slithered around the ocean during the same era but might have been even fiercer. Their fossils are a rare find, but scientists recently unearthed an extraordinary specimen in Krzyżanowice, Poland.

WIRE Buzz: Google Stadia reveals launch selection; The Tomorrow War sets release; more

The streaming video game service was first announced back in March. Then in June, we were promised titles like Baldur's Gate III and Ghost Recon Breakpoint would be available on day one, though now we're learning neither will be available at launch. There will, however, be a total of 12 games ready to stream on Stadia next week.

You could be booking an Earth-view room at the Von Braun Space Station by 2025

The Gateway Foundation is ramping up their two-pronged plan to promote space tourism, a zero-gravity construction industry, and scientific research aboard a pair of orbiting superstructures, the Von Braun Rotating Space Station and The Gateway Spaceport. Both endeavors are scheduled to support scientific research and space commerce, but also function as an exotic hotel for outgoing tourists.

Elsa's metaphorical queerness will remain metaphorical in Frozen II

We got to meet some of the new characters that are debuting in the highly anticipated sequel, and learn about the way the characters have changed. We even got to see two musical numbers in their entirety. But something we also learned very early on in the day, after a very strategic question asked during the first Q&A segment, is that while Anna's relationship with Kristoff will continue to feature in the plot, Elsa will again have no romantic story — that her story will be too epic in scale, too inwardly focused, for there to be room for a love interest in the narrative.

Most impressive! Relive The Big Bang Theory’s Star Wars cameos in this exclusive clip

Any time the stars of the Star Wars universe turned up on The Big Bang Theory, it was an event to remember — and SYFY WIRE has an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes of their TV crossovers in a new featurette ahead of this week’s release of The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Series.

Meet the creatures of Thra in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tie-in book, Heroes of the Resistance

To sort everything out and clarify the backstories and roles of individual denizens of Thra, a second tie-in gift book written by J.M. Lee titled Heroes of the Resistance: A Guide to the Characters of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance arrives Nov. 12 — and SYFY WIRE has an exclusive peek inside. 

Spock loses his mind in revealing Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Blu-ray clip

Now, just in time for holiday season gift-giving (and hopefully some well-earned downtime), CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment are launching Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 in a deluxe new four-disc Blu-ray and DVD set on Nov. 12 — and SYFY WIRE has an exclusive clip showcasing the emotional breakdown of Ethan Peck's Spock.

Will Smith remade The Matrix on home video with his son — and we’ll never see Agent Smith the same again

Until Smith shared this clip via Instagram — apparently just one of many, since he says he celebrated Trey’s childhood birthdays by shooting a kooky Matrix home movie every single year — we had no idea that his dalliance with the Matrix rabbit hole wasn’t just limited to that one time he said no to playing Neo. Apparently for Smith, escaping the Matrix isn’t as simple as swallowing a blue pill. Like the sound of inevitability, he’s evidently been stoking his silly fever dreams of Matrix might-have-beens, with Trey’s capable (and hilarious) help, for years. 

Behind the Red Hood: An oral history of the death and resurrection of Batman's second son

Jason Todd was at first the second Robin, taking over after Bruce Wayne's original partner, Dick Grayson, dropped the mantle and eventually became Nightwing. When he first appeared as Robin in Batman #368 in 1984, Jason was introduced as more or less a carbon copy of Grayson; he had a circus acrobat background, was orphaned by criminals, taken in by Bruce Wayne, etc. A year later, though, everything changed when DC published Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The strange loves of She-Hulk

She-Hulk is often teased in comics and by critics for exactly the same thing we praise her for: the willingness to go for what she wants in the realm of love, and the unwillingness to settle on a guy who isn't on her level. As such, here is our ode — to She-Hulk and her love life.

Batwoman ‘I’ll Be Judge, I’ll Be Jury’ recap: The thin bat line

After last week's journey down the rabbit hole with Alice, we're taking a bit of a break from that side of the Kane family saga for a little more daddy/daughter drama and a lot more of the big divide in Gotham, though it accomplishes one goal far better than the other.
