Star Wars practical effects: J.J. Abrams speaks on the standard

This morning during Star Wars Celebration 2015, J.J. Abrams spoke about practical effects in the next movie. He spoke about how they went to Abu Dabi to film the first planet you see in the first teaser for the film - on a planet he revealed was called "Jaku" (we'll see a correct spelling soon). In that place - in the desert - they made the film as complete as they could without effects. In fact, Abrams suggested that the first copy of the film - before Industrial Light and Magic steps in with special effects - the movie can be watched in its entirety.

Watch the SpaceX rocket landing (now in video form)

Before we'd only had tiny glimpses of the near-landing bit of the Falcon 9 rocket. Now we've got a fully operational video from off the starboard bow. This video shows how the rocket flew in at great speed, nearly - so very, very nearly - landing on the "Just Read The Instructions" autonomous sea craft. But with a final blast, it fell to the wayside. Time to try, try again, of course, as Elon Musk suggests they'll be approaching an 80% success rate by the end of this year.

Marvel’s Ant-Man: new trailer gives bigger look at tiny hero

Ant-Man, despite its brief moment of rockiness, is an official movie Marvel has in the pipeline, and it is far enough along we've finally been graced with trailers. With the start of January, Marvel teased the movie using tiny video clips intended for, you know, ants. About a week later, Marvel released the upscaled regular human-sized version of that trailer, which gave us a nearly two minute look at the film and what all it offers. Now Marvel is back with an even longer trailer, and it shows so much more.
