Power Rangers movie gets dark & serious in debut trailer

Power Rangers movie gets dark & serious in debut trailer

The New York Comic-Con is being held this weekend, and movie studio Lionsgate has used the event to premiere the first trailer for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. The two and a half-minute video does a great job of setting up the superhero story many of us watched on TV growing up. Many of the familiar elements are there, including the group of five outcast/troublemaking teens that discover a meteorite and gain powers. However, it's clear the goofiness of the early '90s show has been replaced by Zack Snyder-influenced levels of serious darkness.

Is a Daft Punk tour for 2017 imminent with Alive2017 dot com?

Is a Daft Punk tour for 2017 imminent with Alive2017 dot com?

This morning a website appeared without preamble, a website which - by several clever means - suggests that Daft Punk will go on tour in 2017. This website is hosted by the low-level hosts at A Small Orange and seem to have blocked attempts at access through a simple IP/WhoIs blocker. Basic attempts to identify the creator have gone nowhere. Could it be that Alive2017 dot com is a forgery? Or is it just that the hype is so real that it cannot be contained by simple record label creations?

‘Strangers Things’ gets an 8-bit video game makeover

‘Strangers Things’ gets an 8-bit video game makeover

Stranger Things was deliberately made to tap that 80s nostalgia, and now Cinefix is here to push it all the way over the edge. As with other movies and TV shows, Cinefix has taken Netflix’s latest hit and transformed it into an 8-bit video with all the stylings of a classic, blocky game. The rendition is as great as we've come to expect from Cinefix, but be cautious: if you haven't watched the actual series yet, this video will spoil just about everything for you.

NIKE Air Mag 2016 with power laces released in photos and video

The new NIKE Mag has been revealed - one with power laces and the ability to start my heart on fire with Back to the Future greatness. These are the NIKE Mag shoes that we saw in Back to the Future II, complete with the lights and the lace technology they were meant to have back on October 21st, 2015. Back then another pair of Nike MAG shoes were launched - without the power laces and in a fashion not unlike this newest set. They'll be limited, you see. I probably won't be able to get a pair.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 teaser trailer (finally) released

We've known for years that Disney has been working on a fifth installment in its Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, but any actual look at the film hasn't been forthcoming thanks to delays. That has finally changed, with Disney publishing the first teaser trailer for the upcoming flick. Unlike most teasers, it's not just a few seconds of footage with long drawn out music intros -- there's some actual substance here, and it looks great.

Hulu just got cheaper at $6/month — but there’s a catch

Hulu just got cheaper at $6/month — but there’s a catch

Many of Hulu’s biggest critics point toward its cost — you’re paying (were paying) $7.99/month to stream the ad-supported version of the platform, with the nearly ad-free version being more expensive. Perhaps to address those criticisms (or to just lure in more subscribers), Hulu has decided to lower the cost of its ad-supported plan, dropping it to a simple $6/month with an optional +$4 fee for getting rid of the commercials. As with all good things, though, there's a catch.

Both the planned Portal movie and a Half Life movie are “still very much in development,” according to Abrams, but we don’t have any information about them yet — no word about when they’ll finally be hitting theaters or anything else.

Star Wars Rogue One Director Krennic’s Shuttle LEGO Review

One of several LEGO sets made for the release of Star Wars Rogue One is here - Director Krennic's Shuttle.
