J.K Rowling will release two new “Harry Potter” books this year

This year is going to be a big one for author J.K. Rowling - not only because she's bringing an epic 20th Anniversary Harry potter exhibit to the world. This first exhibit will take place at the British Library - but we're crossing our fingers that it'll eventually make a world tour, what with all its history of magic and whatnot.

Blade Runner 2049 Replicant Pursuit – launching at SDCC

Almost every other movie these days has a virtual reality tie in. It’s almost unavoidable considering how popular VR is.

Game of Thrones’ creators have had a terrible, terrible idea

HBO has plans for a new series, and it may prove to be controversial. The network will be home to a new series called 'Confederate' from the team behind 'Game of Thrones,' and it'll focus on an alt-history timeline in which the confederacy was to some degree successful, slavery still exists, and the US is a divided nation with a demilitarized zone along the Mason-Dixon line.

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

Today we've gotten a couple looks at what Donald Glover is going to look like in the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars film. While it should be relatively obvious that his appearance won't change drastically - Lando's just a man, after all - we do get to see some sweet costume images. Very, very small images that I feel border on cruelty - thanks Ron Howard! Now, to start making that super-duper-early cosplay jacket in yellow...

Photoshopped fakes trick you all the time, researchers report

Photo manipulation tricks human eyes very easily according to a new report.

In other words - humans do not have any sort of innate sense for discerning reality from computer-edited photography, AKA Photoshopping.

One by one, these Twitch marathons keep coming. The topic of the next marathon will be anime, with Twitch partnering with Crunchyroll to show 15 seasons of different shows over five days.

Netflix: We can save movies (but not movie theaters)

Netflix has more than 100 million subscribers, and has taken aim at the movie industry, warning that what's good for films may not be so great for the traditional ways they're watched.

Doctor Who’s female Doctor isn’t its first regeneration controversy

Doctor Who's decision to make the 13th Doctor regenerate into a female body prompted the predictable degree of controversy, but it's not the first time the BBC series has come under fire.
