Brace yourself: there’s a new ‘Ghostbusters’ trailer

The new Ghostbusters movie will be in theaters soon, and ahead of that premiere comes a new trailer. Don't worry -- it's not terrible, though it's getting a bunch of hate anyway. The dark and brooding music is gone, replaced with the nostalgic tune we all love (it seems Sony learned from that fan edit). A bunch of clips from the first trailer are present, but there's a lot of new material, too.

How we hunted Angry Birds in Hawaii: A SlashGear 360 Adventure

How we hunted Angry Birds in Hawaii: A SlashGear 360 Adventure

Several weeks ago I was invited by the folks behind the Angry Birds movie to fly to Hawaii to speak with the stars. Generally we try to steer towards science and science-fiction films when we do any sort of coverage for movies - we are SlashGear, after all - but this film is something special. Rovio - creators of the Angry Birds franchise - carved out a unique chapter in the history of the smartphone. Could they convince us that a movie needed to be made? Could Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph, and Josh Gad convince us?

Angry Birds Movie actors realize Sean Penn is in the film

Angry Birds Movie actors realize Sean Penn is in the film

Speaking with three of the main actors in The Angry Birds Movie this past week, we happened upon a realization of sorts. This movie is packed with well-known actors of all sorts - most of whom have done both live-action acting and animation (voice) work as well. This is a film where an actor would be forgiven for forgetting the entire cast list of fellow actors - especially if they had no scenes with them in the same studio. In fact with so few lines in the film, it's not out of the question to assume that Sean Penn didn't spend nearly as much time in the recording booth as the rest of the cast. As such, it's easy to forget he was there at all.

Atari classics Missile Command and Centipede are going to be movies

Atari classics Missile Command and Centipede are going to be movies

Movie adaptations based on big-name, current generation video games, like Assassin's Creed, World of Warcraft, and Uncharted for example, are nice and all, but what the world really needs is to see the all-important classics brought to the big screen. I'm talking Atari's Missile Command and Centipede. Never mind the fact that neither of those titles have anything close to a story, if Hollywood can produce a quality film based on the board game Battleship, I have no doubt they can do the same here.

New Star Wars: TFA movie footage explores Maz’s Castle in brief

With a bit of support from the new "The Star Wars Show" and to give a boost to the "Jabba Flow" music track, Lucasfilm has released additional The Force Awakens footage. This is a clip that's basically pickups - or B-roll. Extra footage. Stuff they might have used to show more diversity in aliens in Maz Kanata's castle if the need would have arisen. As it is now, it's just a bit of extra video that's not available on the DVD. More, I tell you, more!

Assassin’s Creed debut movie trailer features secrecy and fighting

Assassin’s Creed debut movie trailer features secrecy and fighting

Movies adapted from video games have yet to earn a decent reputation, but the latest franchise to try is Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. The movie of the same name will be hitting theaters this fall on December 21st, at least giving Assassin's fans something as the game series takes a year off to focus on development. The first real trailer for the movie has just been released, revealing that star Michael Fassbender will be taking on the role of an assassin in a story that will be familiar to those who've played any of the games.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – who is Darth Plagueis?

Evil character Supreme Leader Snoke has had his identity called into question once again by Star Wars fans, and the keeper of the canon Pablo Hidalgo has answered. One of the most long-lasting theories about the most massive of antagonists in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was that he was actually none other than Sith character Darth Plagueis. Today that theory gets put to rest... sort of. Today we explain who Darth Plagueis is, and what he has to do with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

DIY Captain America shield is truly electromagnetic

DIY Captain America shield is truly electromagnetic

Today we've seen an awesome project by The Hacksmith, one in which the Captain America electromagnetic metal shield is made real. This shield isn't yet made of Vibranium - since that, you know, doesn't actually exist (as far as we know) - but it does stick REAL nice. This demonstration is not meant to be a DIY for everyone - but it is meant to make you confident in the fact that if you did want to make it, you probably could.
