Screen Rant

#1 Movie News & Entertainment site on the internet

Covering the full range of movies, TV, comics, anime, gaming, reality TV, tech… it’s fair to say that if you’re passionate about it, we are too!

Screen Rant is your watercooler. It’s your movie theater foyer. It’s your comic book shop. It’s that friend with uncontrollable passion - and the knowledge and insight to back it up. We want to discuss the things we’re passionate about in an authoritative, informed, professional way, matching our readers’ excitement for what’s currently happening in the multiverse of entertainment.

Our passion is matched with industry expertise and connections. We’ve broken major stories, like Avengers: Endgame’s record-busting return to theaters. We’ve been on the set of more major movies than we can count. And we’ve hosted headline-dominating events like Star Wars Celebration’s Mandalorian panel and Marvel’s massive SDCC Hall H panel revealing Phase 5 & 6. We’ve been the first to spot incredible Easter eggs in franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek, and celebrate smaller movies, shows and games that deserve a wider audience. Tom Cruise even broke his silence about his alleged fake butt in Valkyrie.

But don’t take our word for it…
