Game of Thrones ‘Kill the Boy’ episode set new piracy record

Game of Thrones ‘Kill the Boy’ episode set new piracy record

The recent episode of Game of Thrones ‘Kill the Boy’ (Season 5, Episode 5) has set a new piracy record, something that is becoming common for the series. In this latest case, the record was likely set due to the first four episodes of the season leaking so early — meaning a lot of viewers were able to grab them and watch, and then were forced to wait a long while for the fifth to finally come about, leading to an influx of pirates on torrenting websites.

Black Mirror tipped as possible future Netflix exclusive

Back in December, Netflix added the series Black Mirror to its library, and though it has a relatively small number of episodes, it did find (even more) success at its streaming home. Now sources have cropped up stating that Netflix is seeking to have the show become the latest in a long line of “Netflix Originals” programming.

Science Fiction: Roswell Alien Slides Debunked

Science Fiction: Roswell Alien Slides Debunked

Several sixty-year-old slides, recently claimed by their owner, Adam Dew, to be photos of aliens from Roswell, New Mexico, have been debunked. Just this past week, several people - citizens, UFO "believers" and even some so-called experts in the field - were invited to a New Mexico event to screen a documentary on the slides. As it turns out, the images show no more than the remains of a mummified child. The child currently resides in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, after having visited San Francisco on temporary loan in the 1940s.

Amazon Studios gives thumbs up to 6 kids shows

Amazon Studios gives thumbs up to 6 kids shows

Amazon Studios has given the thumbs up to half a dozen pilot episodes for children's shows, potentially boosting its programming for kids -- a category its biggest competitors have also been moving to fill. Children's programming is an important aspect of any video streaming service considering how large the potential viewer base is, yet until the relatively recent past many services have paid little attention to the category. This follows in step with efforts on both Hulu and Netflix's part to increase programming for kids.

I was an Avengers’ Black Widow apologist before today

I was an Avengers’ Black Widow apologist before today

Last month I was an Avengers: Age of Ultron apologist for the likes of Black Widow (and to a lesser extent Hawkeye). I saw the press materials without the two of these folks, and I was with the camp that said the Main Men were More Marketable. They are, aren't they? Captian America, Thor, Iron Man, and The Hulk - they're all really recognizable. But to steal a toy from Our Lady Of The Kill - isn't that going too far? Captain America, can't you just let her have this one?

Remember the popular 2002 movie Minority Report? Where a group of special people, known as precogs, could see the crimes of the future, and the police would prevent them from happening?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer rehashed in 16-bit stylings

The Internet can’t get enough of modern media being turned into 16-bit masterpieces. We’ve seen numerous examples via the always wonderful (and somewhat disingenuously named) 8-bit Cinema, for example, and some have even taken to creating philosophy videos in fun pixelated stylings. It’s no surprise, then, that someone has created a rendition of the latest Star Wars movie’s trailer rehashed as a 16-bit video game, bringing back memories of playing Star Wars games on the SNES. Video after the jump!
