James Bond Spectre is 007’s 24th movie

The new James Bond movie, twenty-fourth in the series, will be called Spectre, Sony and director Sam Mendes have announced this morning. The much-anticipated picture will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as James Bond, while the villain - initially expected to be Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but now named Oerhauser - will be played by Cristoph Waltz. Craig will be joined by a brand new car, with Aston Martin developing the DB10, a sinuous coupe that's likely to pack some serious technology (and more than a few guns).

Sony Pictures tipped to name North Korea as cyberattack source

Sony Pictures tipped to name North Korea as cyberattack source

The cyberattack against Sony Pictures has been ongoing since it first appeared last week, effectively bringing the studio to a halt by taking over its corporate network and, later on, leaking data following threats of such. Though Sony has been relatively quiet on the matter, the FBI recently released a warning about a malicious software attack in the United States, something believed to be a reference to the Sony breach. In that FBI report -- obtained by Reuters -- it was said some of the software used by the hackers had been compiled in Korean.

Star Wars 7 lightsaber arguments miss the point

Star Wars 7 lightsaber arguments miss the point

When I woke up this morning, there was an early Christmas gift waiting for me on my phone. A new Star Wars trailer — a teaser, really — was released today, apparently JJ Abrams attempt to cause Black Friday accidents as we lazily sauntered around stores looking for deals. I was left with a feeling of “oh, neat, it’s all the things I expected”. There are Storm Troopers, the Millennium Falcon, X-Wings, and a Sith lord. There’s also a new light saber.

Universal Pictures nabs Steve Jobs movie

Last week, Sony put its anticipated Steve Jobs movie in turnaround, and rumor had it Universal Pictures would be stepping up to take over.

If there's an upcoming movie almost guaranteed to get anybody who grew up in the 90s salivating, it's Jurassic World, and so you'll have to forgive us for getting unduly excited about the first trailer teaser. Not due to open in theaters until June 12th, 2015, the movie takes us back to an island of dinosaurs in the most exciting - and, unsurprisingly, dangerous - theme park you can imagine, with original director Steven Spielberg returning to act as executive producer on the new installment.

AMC introduces the Unlimited Movie Ticket: Interstellar first

AMC introduces the Unlimited Movie Ticket: Interstellar first

Back when Star Wars was first released, it quickly became common - at least with a classic like that - to go to a film more than once in the theater. The trend was summoned once again with Titanic, then again with the Star Wars prequels. AMC Theaters and Paramount Pictures have caught on to the trend at last, revealing an "Unlimited Ticket." This is not like the subscription passes of the past for certain theaters or certain brands. Instead, this is a first-of-its-kind Interstellar-specific ticket.
