Steven Spielberg interested in directing Indiana Jones reboot with Chris Pratt

There has been talk for some time now among the Hollywood rumor mill of a reboot of the Indiana Jones movies ever since Disney bought the full rights to the franchise in 2013. In addition, there has been buzz for the last few weeks about how rising star actor Chris Pratt would be a perfect fit to fill the shoes of the character famously played by Harrison Ford. Now it appears, according to Deadline, that Steven Spielberg has voiced an interest in directing such a film, should it come to fruition.

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

“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. If there was still any doubt that GoT's Jason Momoa would come back from the dead to take on the DC Universe's king of the seas, this teaser will banish all that. Zack Snyder, who of course has his hands full with many DCU films, just revealed the first glimpse of Aquaman in all his scaley, tattooed glory.

Fitting Blomkamp, Scott’s Prometheus 2 in the ALIEN timeline

It may be time to make good on the (seemingly empty) promise made by Niell Blomkamp several weeks ago about a new ALIEN film. This film was originally set some time after the second ALIEN film - ALIENS. Now we're to understand that Blomkamp's attachment to such a picture may have been cut short due to a reassignment that MAY have been in the works for some time. 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.

Interstellar’s black hole code leads to real science

Interstellar’s black hole code leads to real science

To achieve the effect of a black hole in the film Interstellar, Christopher Nolan worked with real physicist Kip Thorne to depict scientifically-sound images. Thorne and a team at Double Negative Visual Effects worked to create a new code to solve the equation for visualizing light beams as seen from a viewer as they approach a black hole. This has never been done before. While previous studies have been performed at great distances and with light rays, this system bundled light beams together to create an image that was realistic, beautiful, and scientifically sound.

Kanye West “YEEZY BOOST” sneakers released in technical video

If you though a pair of sneakers could never warrant a nationwide live video event hosted by an international pop star, you were wrong. Kanye West has just run an event just like that - with live feeds being sent to theaters in several cities across the United States.

For many consumers, that's more than enough reason to want a pair or two or three.

Chris Pratt visits sick children as Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord

Chris Pratt visits sick children as Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord

If the release of the second Jurassic World trailer during the Super Bowl proved anything, it's that actor Chris Pratt is Hollywood's current go-to leading man. But he's also one heck of a cool guy, and his Super Bowl bet with Captain America actor Chris Evans show why. Pratt and Evans together visited the Christopher’s Haven children’s hospital last week, except Pratt went in full Star-Lord costume, the character he played in superhero movie Guardians of the Galaxy.
