Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse nabbed the biggest December opening for an animated film, netting $35 million. Mortal Engines, from Peter Jackson, only managed $7 million (on a $100 Million budget).

It’s not exactly “news” anymore, but I thought I’d throw it out there. Just in case there was any discussion/conjecture/wild speculation to be had out there.

It was ladies night at WorldCon 76 with women or female-identifying winners across the board. N.K. Jemisin won an unprecedented three-in-a-row win for Best Novel.
This was the first year with new voting rules meant to break up the voting slates that have plagued the awards for the past few years.
Full list of winners follow.

Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.
Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?
Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.

Not an award we usually get to cover here at the Bureau, but it proved to be a good year for genre plays. Well, one in particular, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The play, a sequel to the original seven books that follows young Albus Potter’s adventures at Hogwarts, won six Tony Awards including Best Play and Best Direction of a Play.
You can see the full results of the award ceremony here.
