We're at that point, apparently, where even small-time productions like what you're about to see are able to be produced with such fantastic flare that they look real. Think about what it looked like when you first saw the young Flynn in TRON, completely made up with computer graphics. Now imagine what we'll see when it comes time to release the next Pacific Rim. Now watch this CG short and be amazed.

Firaxis has just announced what is bound to be its next hit title, Starships, which unambiguously revolves around the development of your own star fleet and, perhaps, the formation of your own interstellar federation.

Aliens sequel visualized by director of District 9, Elysium [UPDATE]

We don't really know what to believe when it comes to this proposed sequel to Aliens. Images posted by Director and Visual Effects artist Neill Blomkamp have sparked our interest, that's for certain - but whether or not he'd actually been attached to a film is unconfirmed.

Blomkamp previously directed Elysium and District 9 - his next film is Chappie.
