‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ movie to arrive in early 2016

A handful of years ago, a rehashed version of "Pride and Prejudice" was released called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and as you'd expect given the title, it incorporates the undead into the storyline. The book was released back in 2009, and fans have been pushing for a movie edition. With zombies (again) enjoying the popular spotlight, it is no surprise that now seems like as good a time as any, and news of an official movie in the pipeline has surfaced. The flick will be hitting theaters in early 2016.

Mad Max Fury Road trailer: all plot, all fire

The most fiery of trailers has arrived for Mad Max: Fury Road. This movie is going to be all about death and destruction in the sand, coming in after the apocalypse that "damn near the death of us all," as the ringmaster would say. Here we get a good idea of the plot for this film, this reboot of the Mad Max saga. Here we see what we're fighting for.

Star Wars 7 Trailer 2: coming April 17th

Star Wars 7 Trailer 2: coming April 17th

There are several different times at which the next Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer might be entering your eye sockets. The first is April 17th - this is one day after the first day of Star Wars Celebration, where - rumor suggests - Lucasfilm will be releasing the next teaser trailer for the next Star Wars movie. One day or less, that'd be, before low-quality versions of the trailer (filmed by amateur thieves) is released, and probably one day or less between the showing of said teaser trailer and the online release of said trailer.

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

Sony's new PlayStation Vue service serves to compete with Dish Network's Sling TV and somewhat with the upcoming HBO NOW service, though Vue costs more than both and is in some ways superior (depending on your needs). On Friday, Sony announced that the service has expanded to include a few more channels, all of them being part of AMC Networks' lineup. This includes the AMC channel itself, as well as IFC, Sundance, and WEtv. Not all of them are available in every subscription package, however, a limitation that will be familiar to any cable subscriber.

Fear the Walking Dead: watch the first trailer

Fear the Walking Dead: watch the first trailer

If you watched The Walking Dead's season 5 finale last night (fret not, there are no spoilers here), you were among the first round of people to see the series sequel's very first trailer. It aired halfway through the episode, and during its brief time lent a glimpse into the zombie virus's origins...and in doing so, it suggested that we might finally learn more about how the outbreak took place. The sequel, as we've previously noted, is called Fear the Walking Dead, and it'll be making its debut this summer, bringing us closer to having year-round Walking Dead entertainment.

PlayStation’s Spotify team up: 3rd party app dominance

PlayStation’s Spotify team up: 3rd party app dominance

In the gaming universe, things are changing. While we'll likely never reach a point where it'll be the manufacturers of hardware or the developers of software that take full control of the console ecosystem, today you can mark one up for the latter. Instead of working with their own Music Unlimited system, Sony has decided to team up with Spotify - to great effect. Today Sony not only ends their Music Unlimited system completely across all PlayStation hardware, it begins 30 days of free use of Spotify. Sony is so confident in this team-up, they're tossing out the old and giving the new away for free.
