Super Troopers 2 crowdfunded quick with some unique perks

Some very wealthy individuals appear to have taken to the crowdfunding venture that is Super Troopers 2. While the film studio gave the go-ahead for the film with a guarantee of distribution, the creative team at Broken Lizard agreed to fund it. This means they needed to raise a minimum of $2,000,000 to get the film off the ground. Using an Indiegogo campaign to make the cash, they've claimed over $2.2 million in just over 24 hours.

Ready Player One’s Steven Spielberg assignment

Ready Player One’s Steven Spielberg assignment

This afternoon it was confirmed that directorial duties for the movie Ready Player One would be given to Steven Spielberg. Easily one of the most famous movie directors in the history of the world, Spielberg will very easily give clout beyond reckoning to this science fiction project. The movie is based on the book by the same title, written by Ernest Cline, a fellow who today suggested that, due to the Spielberg assignment, he'd be having "a massive coronary" in the very near future.

Behold, the 50-year-old Corned Beef Sandwich in Space

Behold, the 50-year-old Corned Beef Sandwich in Space

What an odd thing to memorialize - but there it is. The 50th anniversary of the first (and last) corned-beef sandwich to fly through space. Back on the 23rd of March, 1964, NASA launched their first two-man space mission Gemini 3. Two hours into the flight, astronaut John Young pulled a corned beef sandwich out of his space suit pocket. It was a joke, or a "gotcha" as his partner called them - but a joke that turned deadly serious not long after his epic sandwich-heavy space-prank was revealed.

Facebook will soon be sharing spherical video - not just video, but video that allows you to look around in all directions.

This time the movie is bypassing collaborative studios and going straight for the money shot.
