Looking For Group documentary relives 10 years of World of Warcraft

No, this isn't the much-awaited "Warcraft" film, of course, but it could very well be a stopgap filler while fans wait for almost two more years. At BlizzCon last weekend, fans celebrated the 10th anniversary of the now venerable MMORPG title World of Warcraft by watching a documentary that takes a look back at those years, both with fondness and perhaps even a bit of pain. "Looking For Group" takes a look behind and around the scenes, giving viewers a glimpse of the sub-culture that rose up around the MMO that started it all.

Court to Google: help identify source of Avengers trailer leak

Court to Google: help identify source of Avengers trailer leak

On October 22, Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaked. This was a problem, as it wasn't supposed to debut for a few more days, being set to show during the next Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D episode. A final cut of the trailer wasn't ready to go out, however, so Marvel had to hastily put one together, which it made live on its YouTube channel in response to the leak. During the time slot it was originally set to air, Marvel showed an "extended edition" trailer instead, all the while hunting down who leaked the footage in the first place.

Michael Fassbender, who has donned the Magneto crown in the X Men franchise reboot, is rumored to be up for the job of Jobs.

Hardcore: an action film styled like an FPS game

Hardcore: an action film styled like an FPS game

When we watch movies, we expect them to follow a certain conventional style; the same goes for FPS video games. YouTube is full of videos themed after the latter, mixing live action with the first-person-shooter style common in games like those in the Call of Duty franchise. Not many of those videos match the quality and consistent styling of a new live-action movie tease called "Hardcore", which hopes to ultimately be the "First Ever Action POV Feature Film", according to the maker's Indiegogo campaign.

Christian Bale as Steve Jobs? Not gonna happen

Christian Bale as Steve Jobs? Not gonna happen

If the upcoming Steve Jobs film based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of the Apple co-founder had you excited because of Christian Bale’s involvement, take a knee. It seems the actor has pulled out of the film, with The Hollywood Reporter noting he felt he “wasn’t right” to play Jobs. Though nobody was officially signed to play Jobs, writer Aaron Sorkin previously said it was a lock we’d see Batman as Steve Jobs, noting a meeting took place, but no audition was required.
