DREDD 2: Karl Urban meets with filmmakers

DREDD 2: Karl Urban meets with filmmakers

Karl Urban has once again spoken up about DREDD 2, the sequel to the first film that does not officially have a plan for a second. We heard from Urban in April of this year speaking about the petition to get a DREDD sequel made, and since then we’ve heard from Olivia Thirlby as well with a similar message. Now we’re hearing from Urban again, this time at Destination Star Trek 3 in London England. This is the same convention where we saw Cortana speak Klingon for the first time, mind you.

Myst tipped to be coming to a TV near you

Myst tipped to be coming to a TV near you

Those who remember a time when you put in CDs, not DVDs, into PCs in order to install and play a game may have just jumped for joy or at the very least sported mild amusement on their faces. Myst, one of the unexpected successes of the gaming industry in the last two decades, is now rumored to be making a return to mainstream consciousness. Not as a remake, not as a remaster, and not as a film either, but as a new TV series. Well, maybe with a new game as well.

Netflix hit with industry backlash over new movie deals

Netflix hit with industry backlash over new movie deals

Netflix and Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions recently made a surprise announcement: that the video streaming service would partner in creating four new Sandler movies that will launch on Netflix exclusively. This immediately followed a similar announcement that Netflix will be making a second Crouching Tiger movie, launching it online at the same time as in IMAX theaters. Such moves were bound to happen and give consumers more control over their entertainment, but as expected, both have received substantial backlash from industry staples balking at the budding shift in how theatrical entertainment takes place.

Watch: Slow-motion skateboard trick videos by Adam Shomsky

This afternoon we’re kicking back wishing Summer wasn’t over, preparing for the oncoming spring with a pack of slow-mo skateboard tricks. These are part of a series of videos called "Skateology", aiming to be informative about ground-level skating. For everyone that’s ever done any one of these tricks on their own board, this is your chance to see what you’ve done in detail. For everyone else - even when you see these tricks done moment-by-moment, they still might seem impossible. There’s a reason why skateboarding tricks are so rewarding.

Jeff Goldblum tips Independence Day 2, gets fancy with GE

Jeff Goldblum tips Independence Day 2, gets fancy with GE

When you think about Jeff Goldblum, you likely think about one of three roles. He was in The Fly, he was in Jurassic Park, and he was in Independence Day. If you’re a really big fan, you’ll also think about how he promoted Apple Computers when the iMac first became colorful. Now he’s whipping out two masterpieces. One is Independence Day 2 - a script is just being written now, so we won’t see that for a while. The other is an advertisement for a General Electric lightbulb.

Spotify streams John Lennon’s entire collection, Beatles still MIA

Spotify streams John Lennon’s entire collection, Beatles still MIA

Not his entire record collection - if he had one - but every one of the records John Lennon created will be streamed by Spotify starting today. Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr also have albums streaming on Spotify, while The Beatles as a collective have none.

The wave is coming - and some might believe that it’s already here. Streaming all the albums, all the artists - but The Beatles, of course.

Back in November of last year, we heard word that Marvel Comics' next television series was going to be Daredevil, and that it would be arriving on Netflix, which has seen ample successes with its own TV shows Orange is the New Black and House of Cards in recent time. Fast forward to yesterday, and the series' official Netflix logo has been unveiled by the companies just ahead of the New York Comic Con, showing a rather traditional deep red comic book-esque design that should please fans.

Dead Rising movie contains cameos, product placement

There’s a Dead Rising movie coming soon. It’ll be a movie translation of the video game series, the one whose third installment just hit PC after being launched on Xbox One. Zombies will be in this movie, and it’ll take place in the same Dead Rising universe somewhere between Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 3. You can bet there'll be plenty of bashing, plenty of blood, and one whole heck of a lot of Zombrex to keep you clean and out of the person-eating-person gutter.

Better Call Saul trailer one: the song, appropriately

Better Call Saul trailer one: the song, appropriately

There’s a lovely song and show you’re about to see that’s made by the artist Junior Brown and Madison Gate Records. It’s for the upcoming show Better Call Saul, a spin-off series from the same folks that brought you Breaking Bad. That series cut off rightly, right when it should have, with no large loose ends. But the universe is large, and Saul wants his place in the sun. "So they say you’re breaking bad? You better call Saul." No qualms with riding the coattails of its original series - just like Frasier.
