Roku gets Play Movies & TV to duel with Android TV

Roku gets Play Movies & TV to duel with Android TV

Roku was on the forefront of making low-cost, reliable streaming devices for your living room, bedroom, or anywhere else you might have a TV and a shelf. They held sway until the Chromecast came in and knocked them off their low-cost pedestal, too. Unrelenting, Roku took steps to make sure we used their service, even letting us stream pics and video from our Android devices. Now they’re taking another step closer to Google, and will start offering up Play Movies & TV via your Roku.

Pee-wee does Avengers trailer, teases new movie

Pee-wee does Avengers trailer, teases new movie

The release of The Complete Pee-wee's Playhouse on Blu-ray is here, and what better place to let the whole world know than on Jimmy Fallon? Bouncing off a segment where Fallon himself does voice-overs of famous movie trailers with a Pee-wee voice, Paul Reubens was asked to do the same. Reubens suggested that he'd been contacted several times in the past, people asking him whether he'd been the voice of Pee-wee during Fallon's trailers.

That ends up being a huge waste of time, sometimes returning something decent, somethings not.

The incoming biopic about the Apple co-founder is set to blow the pretenders (yes, you, Ashton) out of the water, and the addition of Seth Rogen will only enhance the experience.

The movie is based on Walter Isaacson’s book about Jobs.

That’s not new, but this is the first time their policy specifically addresses wearable tech.

The new rules also state that law enforcement will be called if they think you’re filming.

DREDD sequel “Superfiend” collection released: watch now

DREDD sequel “Superfiend” collection released: watch now

The unofficial "Bootleg" collection of DREDD videos called "Superfiend" have begun their trip to your eyeballs this afternoon. While the 2012 movie DREDD was a failure in the box office, a massive fan following has pushed creators to making way for future films. Sort of. These videos are the result of a wish had by Adi Shankar to continue work on DREDD through the 2000 AD universe. They're closer to fan films than they are to a theater release sort of deal - but they're certainly interesting enough to sit down and take in.
