Hulu strikes mega-deal with EPIX, will add hit movies soon

Hulu has announced a new “landmark” deal with EPIX, giving it streaming video on demand rights to a roster of movies from MGM, Paramount, Lionsgate, and more.

Some of the movies destined for Hulu, such as Interstellar, haven’t been available for streaming online previously, making this a big score for Hulu.

Netflix ends deal with Epix, loses Hunger Games, World War Z

Netflix ends deal with Epix, loses Hunger Games, World War Z

Netflix and cable network Epix no longer see eye to eye and are therefore parting ways. If you're not a Netlfix subscriber, that statement might mean squat. But if you are one of the many who are subscribed to one of the world's biggest video streaming services, then that means losing access to movies like Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z, and even, gasp, Transformers: Age of Extinction. With this, Netflix is inching closer to its unsaid goal of providing content that is exclusively available only from its catalog.

Star Wars The Force Awakens teaser trailer 3: Rey, Finn, blue lightsaber included

Finn ignites his blue lightsaber for the first time in the new teaser trailer (mini clip) from Lucasfilm. While we've seen this bit - sort of - in the first poster for the film revealed earlier this month, this is the first time we're to understand that the character played by John Boyega appears to be on the same planet as Kylo Ren, one of this film's primary villains. That's not all - there's a super tiny clip of Rey as well!

Captain America: Civil War teaser leaked from Disney D23 [Update: it’s fake]

UPDATE: Looks like we got hosed. Turns out this "teaser" is nothing more than a fake, fan-made clip. We've heard from several people who attended Disney's D23 event, and they say this was nothing like what was really shown. We'll leave the video below incase anyone is still curious to see it, but just know it's 100% not real.

Those following Marvel's rapidly expanding cinematic universe are already well aware that the third Captain America film is in production, with a release date already confirmed for May 6th, 2016. Over the weekend, Disney held its annual D23 fan club expo in Anaheim, California, and a few lucky attendees got to see a special Marvel presentation. Turns out, these people were treated to one of the very first showings of the teaser trailer for the new Captain America. As should be expected in age of smartphones and internet, a portion of it was recorded and shared on YouTube.

Warner Bros. to revive Scooby Doo in 2018 with animated movie

Scooby Doo has been the subject of a couple awful live-action movies, and hopefully we won't be seeing any more of those. Some nicely done animated movies would be nice, though, and Warner Bros. apparently feels the same way -- it will be bringing back Scooby Doo in animated form starting in 2018, when it has a movie planned for launch. Rumbles about the project first surfaced back in 2013, but the rumored writer and producers at that time are no longer in play.

Architects are crowdfunding Lord of the Rings’ city Minas Tirith for $2.9B

Here is a crowdfunding campaign to rule them all. A group of UK architects have begun an IndieGoGo campaign to raise roughly $2.9 billion that will be used to build a real life Minas Tirith, the beautiful, and very much fictional city from The Lord of the Rings. The group, which is led by Jonathan Wilson, is made up of architects and structural engineers who are clearly huge LotR fans. Their goal is build the fully livable city into the side of a mountain, as it was depicted in the LotR films.
