Plex updates its Roku app with sleek new look

Regardless of whether you're a cord cutter, you probably watch your own locally-stored content, and you probably do so on multiple devices.

Roku, of course, is one of the most popular devices.

Oliver Stone’s Snowden biopic casts 3 new actors

Oliver Stone is filming the controversial biopic Snowden, based on the life of Edward Snowden, the American NSA whistleblower. Stone is a great director for two types of films, big-budget blockbusters or Oscar fodder. There is no report on the budget yet, but the Snowden plot will probably be packed with more suspense than action. This put the movie into the latter category.

If you've never heard of The Settlers of Catan, the gist is that it is a strategy-based board game that has players both competing and working with each other in order to win, mostly through trading resources like wood, brick, sheep, and ore.

“Caribbean’s” Verbinski to direct self-driving car race film

Car companies, or at least a good number of them, are in a race to put out the best self-driving car of the future. Now imagine if they actually turned that into a literal race? That is somewhat the plot of an upcoming film nicknamed "Driverless Car Race", hopefully not the working title, that centers around these autonomous vehicles putting the pedal to the metal. By themselves, of course. And who will be at the helm of this film? None other than Gore Verbinski of thrice the Pirates of the Caribbean fame.

First Jason “Aquaman” Momoa teaser surfaces

Starting today, the DC fans camp might be split into two. On one side, you're most likely to find fans of the Game of Thrones. On the other side, well, you have everyone else.

Word from Blomkamp himself this week suggests that he's attached to a new ALIEN picture, this one likely set after the first Prometheus film.
