James Bond movie ‘Spectre’ gets first TV trailer

James Bond movie ‘Spectre’ gets first TV trailer

In December 2014, we discovered that the next James Bond movie would be Spectre, marking a 24th installment in the series. More than six months have passed since then, and on Wednesday fans were given another glimpse of the movie — this time in the form of a TV trailer. It is exactly one minute in length, the footage nearly as long, and in it we see everything you’d expect in a James Bond movie…including the quip that he is, “Bond. James Bond.”

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters gets Chris Hemsworth as the receptionist

Paul Feig's all-female rehashing of Ghostbusters is still a work in progress, and newest to the cast is Chris Hemsworth, who will be playing the receptionist. This is a big change up from his usual roles, and keeps in step with Feig's gender reversed roles over the original film. It was Feig himself who confirmed the news yesterday. Official details beyond that aren’t forthcoming, but some sources have cropped up to fill in the greater picture surrounding Hemsworth's casting.

Your first look at Mulder and Scully in the X-Files reboot

Your first look at Mulder and Scully in the X-Files reboot

This morning the X-Files reboot - via Fox - showed one single photo of Scully and Mulder, the heroes of this picture. While we've seen recent photos, videos, and live appearances of both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in the recent past, we've seen neither of them together in costume. In costume for THIS role, that is to say. For X-Files fans like myself, this is a sort of return home. Back to a place where anything can happen, and you're made to want to believe.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice batmobile gets official debut

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice batmobile gets official debut

The next Batman v Superman movie will be arriving in 2016, and ahead of that launch its batmobile has made its official debut. Such was expected, with the debut happening more or less the way it did with the first Batman v Superman movie -- if you need a refresher, you can check out that batmobile here. The newest iteration of Batman's vehicle looks somewhat the same -- you can definitely see the similarities, which are arguably greater than the differences. The latest one is, though, its own beast.

Copy of Star Wars original script unearthed in UNB library

Copy of Star Wars original script unearthed in UNB library

It is almost like a crossover between two Harrison Ford universes. A nondescript librarian, employed for a menial task, stumbles across a long forgotten manuscript revealed to be the very faithful recreation of an original plot for a story of epic proportions. That scene is probably not far from the mind of Kristian Brown when he came across, purely by accident, on a copy of the original script for Star Wars. Now the University of New Brunswick in Saint John in Canada will have to make sure they never again forget that they hold a piece of pop culture history.

Sharknado 3: first trailer ahead of July premiere

Sharknado 3: first trailer ahead of July premiere

In mid-March it was confirmed that SyFy’s absurd but oddly lovable Sharknado movie is getting a third installment, which will be premiering on the network next month. A bunch of details were dropped last month, but there was nothing more than a single teaser image, and it was mostly composed of just the "Sharknado 3" logo. Now that the launch is almost upon us, though, we've gotten a look at the movie's first teaser trailer (which, of course, we have after the jump).

Star Wars: Uprising mobile game tells post-Return of the Jedi story

Star Wars: Uprising mobile game tells post-Return of the Jedi story

As the release date for The Force Awakens draws nearer, Disney and Lucasfilm have just announced a new Star Wars mobile game that will fill in some of the story between the new movie and the original trilogy. While it may be difficult to expect a RPG on mobile be anything better than mediocre, Star Wars: Uprising has high ambitions, and even though there are free-to-play elements, the story being told is part of the universe's new canon.

Google built this EPIC camera for Fast & Furious 6’s director

Google built this EPIC camera for Fast & Furious 6’s director

When Fast and Furious series director Justin Lin comes calling, wanting to film for your 360-degree revolution in movies, you build him a kick-ass camera. That is, assuming you're the Google ATAP team, flush with the success of the first few Google Spotlight Stories released, and keen to give the platform its debut live-action outing. Problem is, the practicalities of capturing all-around video with real actors are very different from the animations that Spotlight Stories has dealt with so far; that, ATAP lead Regina Dugan explained at I/O this week, meant some impressive new hardware.
