Zack Snyder, who of course has his hands full with many DCU films, just revealed the first glimpse of Aquaman in all his scaley, tattooed glory.

Fitting Blomkamp, Scott’s Prometheus 2 in the ALIEN timeline

This film was originally set some time after the second ALIEN film - ALIENS. Now we're to understand that Blomkamp's attachment to such a picture may have been cut short due to a reassignment that MAY have been in the works for some time. Word from Blomkamp himself this week suggests that he's attached to a new ALIEN picture, this one likely set after the first Prometheus film.

Interstellar’s black hole code leads to real science

Interstellar’s black hole code leads to real science

To achieve the effect of a black hole in the film Interstellar, Christopher Nolan worked with real physicist Kip Thorne to depict scientifically-sound images. Thorne and a team at Double Negative Visual Effects worked to create a new code to solve the equation for visualizing light beams as seen from a viewer as they approach a black hole. This has never been done before. While previous studies have been performed at great distances and with light rays, this system bundled light beams together to create an image that was realistic, beautiful, and scientifically sound.
