Hakai Magazine is a newly launched science publication that will report on science, society, and the environment along the world’s coastlines, which are home not only to nearly half of the planet’s human population, but countless other species of plants and animals.
Now this is an interesting meshing of creator and fable. Disney has purchased Vince Gilligan’s (showrunner for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul) new Jack and the Beanstalk story. *Insert Jack selling meth to the giant jokes here.*
One of the premises of The Last Man on Earth is that Phil is not his best self when you start throwing other people into the mix. But the latest addition to the cul-de-sac hasn’t just disrupted Phil’s life. It has also sent another survivor spiraling out of control.
Susanna Clarke’s magical alternate history Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell comes to television soon, and this trailer gives us a hint of what the return of English magic will look like. Meet Gilbert Norrell, Jonathan Strange, the Gentleman with the Thistle-Down Hair, and all the people in their magical orbit.
Perhaps the better way to phrase this is, “Hamsters now work inside person wheels,” because the person wheel definitely came first. These comic-looking but useful devices helped build many of the landmarks we now cherish.
We all love seafood — but the ocean can be a terrifying place. The ocean depths are home to some deadly and poisonous creatures... so of course, people always try to eat them. Here are the scariest fish dishes you could possibly eat.
If you’re ever feeling crappy about not getting recognition for your work, just remember that even Carl Sagan got negs from his scientific colleagues. In fact, he was never allowed into the National Academy of Sciences, despite all he did to popularize the scientific worldview.
Another beloved manga is apparently getting a US makeover. This time it’s Death Note, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s comic about an ambitious young man who receives a mystical killer notebook. You’re Next and The Guest director Adam Wingard has signed on to direct the US feature version.
Knife, fork, spoon: This is the holy trinity of silverware and (while the occasional spork may jostle for inclusion), in general, these are all you’re likely to see. There is, however, another hybrid utensil you may not know: The Knork. And its creation owes as much to modern medicine as to dining habits.
Movie buffs tend to equate an R-rating with realness — if a movie is too violent or sexed-up for kids, then that proves the film-makers are keeping it real. A “hard R” equals a real edge. But sometimes, focusing on all the splatter and nudity can just get in the way of the story. Which movie would be better if it was PG, or PG-13?
Months after his casting was announced, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) has revealed which Marvel supervillain he's going to play in Cap's next adventure.
As previously speculated shortly after he was signed for Captain America: Civil War, it's Baron Helmut Zemo, whose father -- top Nazi scientist Heinrich Zemo -- was killed in a battle against Captain America back in World War II. Bruhl told the Independent, "I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison," adding, "For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy. ... It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”
The original Baron Zemo, Heinrich, made his debut in The Avengers #4 all the way back in March 1964, while sonny boy entered the scene in Captain America #168 (December 1973). If Helmut's history in the movie loosely follows that of the comics, he'll be out to seek revenge on Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) for causing his dad's death during Big Two.
What's interesting about Helmut Zemo is that, as Slashfilm reminds us, he played both sides off each other in the comics' Civil War storyline, aiding both Iron Man and Captain America at different points in the saga. Whether he takes the same path in the movie remains to be seen, but he'll be one of a trio of villains that also includes Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and probably the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) as well.
Evans, Bruhl, Grillo and Stan will be in the thick of a major MCU event that will also feature Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and a new young actor as Spider-Man. No wonder insiders are calling this thing Avengers 2.5.
Filming reportedly gets underway today, with Captain America: Civil War set for release on May 6, 2016. Are you glad to see Baron Zemo making his debut in the MCU?
Nothing spruces up a room like a sparkling-clear HD TV screen, and if your home happens to be the International Space Station, the addition is a serious upgrade from the usual 13-inch laptop displays.
Delivered by SpaceX on April 14 and developed for NASA by Austin-based Screen Innovations, the astronauts' latest toy and tool (besides the new espresso machine) is a 1080p digital projector and futuristic 65-inch Slate screen that can be rolled, transported and deployed flat under nearly any zero-gravity conditions, even the harsh environment of airlocks. The technology used by Screen Innovations will allow the viewscreen to operate for 30,000 continuous hours, or 3.4 years, and its picture remains ultra-bright due to an ambient-light rejection projection system, which is handy since the interior lights of the ISS never go dark. So, whether hosting a marathon Leave It to Beaver session or chatting with loved ones back on Earth, rest assured, the astronauts will be streaming in style. Over the weekend, Gravity was chosen as their first orbital movie night, sans popcorn.
Here's a product video from Screen Innovations detailing the amazing device:

We still haven't seen the full force of the spring and summer series premiering, but we keep getting an intruiging trickle, and this week that trickle brings back Penny Dreadful. Plus, The Last Man on Earth gets it season finale, a look at Orphan Black's early season-three ratings, and more.
Check out the week in TV below. What's on your watchlist?
Highlights of the Week
Powers (PSN) Monday, Streaming - "F@#k the Big Chiller"
Season finale! - It takes quite a while for many TV series to make it to the screen, but Powers had a particularly hard road. It switched networks, went through plenty of rewrites that didn't actually led to production, and waited years to see the light of day. This year, the show based on the comic by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming finally made it to the screen, though, and it did so in a somewhat historic way. Powers is the first original series to be broadcast on the PlayStation Network, streaming to subscribers every week, and like Netflix and other streaming services, PSN doesn't really gives us a week-to-week breakdown of how well the show is doing. So we're still waiting for word on just how successful the show was, and how viable PSN is as a venue for feature streaming content. For the moment, though, we can celebrate that this series -- which often felt like it would never really happen -- finally got a full season.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC) Tuesday, 8 p.m. - "The Dirty Half Dozen"
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is in a very interesting place right now when you look at the overall Marvel Studios series landscape. Even as the show enters into the final episodes of its second season, rumors of a spinoff series are swirling, and many fans are more concerned about the future of Agent Carter than they are about the future of this show. On top of that, Marvel's relationship with Netflix just got a big boost with the news that, in addition to the four other shows the studio is develping with the streaming service, their inaugural partnership, Daredevil, will continue for a second season. Then there are all the movies, which only seem to be increasing in frequency. With all that in mind, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seems less and less relevant, but if you're a fan of the show, have no fear. Live ratings have slipped a bit (again) in recent weeks, but the show remains a strong DVR contender, packing one of the biggest Live+7 gains on TV. Plus, this week the show offers a bit of a tie-in to Avengers: Age of Ultron. Check out a preview below.
Orphan Black (BBC) Saturday, 9 p.m. - "Formalized, Complex, and Costly"
The third season of Orphan Black is well underway now, so we thought we'd take a moment to look back at how it launched. This year, things went a little differently with the Orphan Black season premiere. Instead of just airing on BBC America, the episode was broadcast on sister networks AMC, IFC, WEtv and Sundance TV. If you look at just the BBC America numbers, the show dropped significantly, earning an audience 13 percent smaller than last season's premiere. If you look at the whole picture, though, things look great for Orphan Black. The show drew a total of 1.27 million live viewers across all of those networks, nearly double the best live premiere audience the show's ever had. So, for the moment, it seems the cross-network scheme worked its magic. Now we just have to see how many of those viewers will keep watching.
The Last Man on Earth (FOX) Sunday, 9:30 p.m. - "Screw the Moon"
Season finale! - You may remember that, when The Last Man on Earth premiered, I wondered if the show's premised could sustain itself as a long-term TV prospect. I wondered if things would get dull or if we'd grow tired of the characters. Well, we still might, but for the moment Last Man is going strong. FOX has already renewed the post-apocalyptic series about a man and his few survivor friends trying to make life out of what's left of the world for a second season, and after viewing most of the first, it's easy to see why. Last Man expertly takes the end-of-the-world dynamic of the series and mingles it with classic sitcom tropes, and so far the formula has worked. Now we just have to see where we'll be left while waiting for season two.
Penny Dreadful (SHO) Sunday, 10 p.m. - "Fresh Hell"
Season premiere! - Last year, as both Penny Dreadful and Salem debuted, I wondered whether there was an appetite among viewers for this many horror-inspired shows, especially when you consider other cable series like American Horror Story, The Strain, Bates Motel and perennial powerhouse The Walking Dead. Clearly, though, audiences want more, because all of the shows I just named live on, including Penny Dreadful, which got a renewal for a second season a little more than a month after its debut. The Showtime series, which blends known Victorian horror characters with new ones, thrives on offering something other series of its genre don't, and we're hoping for even more of that in season two. Check out a trailer below.

For 15 years, fans of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto have never seen the full face of Kakashi Hatake, the leader and teacher of Team 7. And when the long-running hit manga series came to a close, fans were gutted to have been denied a peek at what he actually, fully looks like beneath the ninja mask covering half his face. Until now.
Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto recently opened a Naruto exhibit in Japan, where he finally revealed Copy Ninja Kakashi's face. Anime News Network attended the exhibit this weekend and nabbed the free Official Guestbook Shinden Fū no Sho book for those in attendance, and they’ve published pics revealing Kakashi’s face. Check it out:
ANN also say that in the manga included with the book, Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke talk about the best way to uncover Kakashi’s face. They meet with a photographer named Sukea, who wants to snap a pic of Kakashi’s face because MAJOR SCOOP. After a failed attempt, our three ninjas go home, only to have it revealed that Sukea is actually Kakashi in disguise, and he reveals his face before taking a shower. At the end of the story, he says he plans to play a bit more with Team 7 about what’s hiding under his mask.
What do you think of the reveal of Kakashi Hatake’s full face? Are you excited to finally see what lay hidden behind the fan-favorite character's mask all these years? Was it worth the wait, or are you ultimately disappointed?
Robots already have a bit of a physical edge, thanks to the fact that they’re not made of flesh and gooey stuff, but this tiny tech could give them another leg up in the eventual battle for mankind’s existence.
A team of engineers at Stanford University have managed to leverage techniques inspired by both geckos and inchworms to create tiny robots that can potentially pull objects 2,000 times their own weight. For perspective, as noted by an engineer working the project: That’s the equivalent of a human dragging a blue whale. Whoa.
So, how does it work? Basically by mimicking a gecko’s natural skills, as the team put tiny rubber spikes on the ‘bots' feet that will bend when pressure is applied (which increases the surface area). But the spikes straighten out when the foot is lifted, allowing the tiny, future killing machine to drag the weight forward.
There are a few varieties of the robots already, with the biggest model weighing in at just 12 grams and capable of pulling objects 2,000 heavier than itself. A tiny, 20-milligram model can carry 25 times its own weight. Plus, a special 9-gram design inspired by inchworms can pull up to one kilogram up a vertical surface. That basically equates to a human dragging an elephant straight up a building.
Check out the tiny robots in action below and let us know what you think:
The engineers behind the project believe the tech could have a wide range of usability (outside of Skynet’s plans for world domination). Potential applications include moving extremely large and heavy objects for construction, emergencies, etc.

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Episode 3 ‘High Sparrow’ Review @ SciFiNow - The World's Best Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Magazine
Evil twins are so common in the media, we're surprised that mothers don't automatically kill one of their two infants to prevent the evil from spreading. But in reality, twins commit crimes as infrequently as the rest of the us. And now, like the rest of us, they can be identified by their DNA.
After genetic material (such as blood and semen) is collected from a crime scene, technicians isolate the DNA and copy it using PCR (polymerase chain reaction). They then study the subject's STR markers and compare it to the known suspect and/or population database. If the DNA matches a known person, we have a winner (who is also a loser) ... except in the case of identical twins.
In the few cases in which a twin (or worse, both twins) is suspected of a crime, investigators can only determine whodunit by sequencing their entire genome. However, it's an expensive procedure.
According to New Scientist, Graham Williams at the University of Huddersfield, UK, reasoned that although the twins may have the same genetic material, they also have unique experiences and lifestyles. Enter epigenetics.
New Scientist writes, "[E]pigenetic changes occur when a chemical group known as a methyl group attaches to a gene and modifies the way it is expressed. This happens as a body is influenced by a person's environment, lifestyle and disease."
In other words, Orphan Black's former hard-partier Sarah would have a different methyl group than binge-eating, binge-killing Helena.
With that in mind, Williams' team extracted DNA from five pairs of twins and "used a chemical to target parts of the DNA that did not have methyl groups attached, and change the number of hydrogen bonds at these points. Any difference in the number of hydrogen bonds should change the melting point of a compound."
The two different samples now melt at different temperatures. Voila, instant identification.
Beware, evildoing twins. Your days of hiding behind your DNA are officially over.

Jared Leto’s prison-tattooed version of the Joker made a big splash the other day — but a radically transformed Joker is nothing new. Batman’s most iconic foe has undergone many revamps, reimaginings, updates and interpretations over the past 75 years. Here’s the complete history of the ever-changing face of the Joker.
21-year-old Raul Oaida, a self-described "kid from a poor family in Eastern Europe," has the mind of an engineer and the building blocks of $20,000 worth of LEGOs (his business partner, Steve Sammartino, raised the money while Oaida did the legwork — or is that LEGOwork?).
His remarkable vehicle runs solely on compressed air. As Oaida says in the video below, "The engine is an air-powered piston driven contraption that has 256 cylinders and roughly 100,000 parts."
Oaida built his vehicle to bring attention to air-powered cars, like the kind that auto maker Peugeot is developing. But while Peugeot is creating a hybrid car that uses air instead of batteries, Oaida's vehicle uses compressed air alone.
The LEGO car charges within seconds and in tests has driven 20 kilometers. It also drops pieces every time Oaida takes it out for a spin.
Although this car will never be street legal, it's proof that anyone with brains and determination can build anything out of LEGO.
When he's not building cars, Oaida is building jet engines and strapping them on to bicycles, as well as planning to build a spaceship. We have little doubt he'll eventually be waving hello to us from his own private LEGO-based moon base.

Hell, almost any plot that revolved around missing someone or a wrong bit of information would be obsolete today. So what will autonomous cars do?
Forty years ago, 1975 brought the arrival of a number of sci-fi, horror and fantasy films that made an impact on their genres -- some good, some not so good, but all interesting and all remembered even to this day. We continue our look back at each of those films on the anniversary of its release and where it stands four decades later with this exploitation classic ...
Title: Death Race 2000
Release date: April 27, 1975
Cast: David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone, Simone Griffeth
Director: Paul Bartel
Plot: After energy shortages have led to the toppling of the U.S. government in favor of a dictatorship, the masses are distracted every year by the annual Trans-Continental Death Race, in which participants earn points by running down innocent civilians. As the 20th edition of the race kicks off with top contenders Frankenstein (Carradine) -- so named because he's allegedly had so many body parts replaced due to accidents -- and the sadistic Machine Gun Joe (Stallone in an early role), a resistance plans to stop the race.
Why it's significant: As was often the case with movies produced by B-movie exploitation king Roger Corman, Death Race 2000 started out as a cash grab and became something else entirely. Corman originally wanted to steal some of the publicity surrounding the impending release of Rollerball -- another dystopian tale about a brutal, bloodthirsty "sport" -- and his initial treatment for Death Race 2000 was a dark affair. But Corman realized it might work better as a black comedy, so he changed it -- and created a cult classic.
Directed by Paul Bartel (who later made another cult gem, Eating Raoul), Death Race 2000 is crudely made and, with the exception of Carradine, too broadly acted for its own good by most of the cast. But its themes and humor, rough as it is, are right on target: Corman, Bartel and screenwriters Robert Thom and Charles Griffith took satiric aim at the use of sports and gratuitous violence as means to distract the populace from the descent of their society into totalitarianism. Death Race 2000 doesn't get too heavy on this; there is plenty of grim hilarity to watching hospital staff line up patients outside to get run down or seeing one of the drivers kill his own crew to earn a few quick points, while a lapdog media breathlessly reports it all from the sidelines.
Death Race 2000 not only holds up as entertaining, fast-moving and weirdly funny schlock, but its basic concept is still in use by movies today -- most notably in the blockbuster franchise The Hunger Games, in which a nationally televised, hyper-violent battle to the death is used as both distraction and instrument of fear by an oppressive, post-apocalyptic dictatorship. The Hunger Games takes itself very seriously -- and not necessarily to its detriment -- but there is something to be said for the gleefully nihilistic and raunchier angle that Death Race 2000 employs. Sometimes it's better to laugh at these nightmare scenarios before they come true.

Susanna Clarke's long and lush best-selling novel, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, is being manifested as a seven-part prestige series for BBC One this summer. Here's the newly released full trailer, with 19th-century magicians forming an uneasy alliance to place the fine art of magic back into the heart of England. Directed by Toby Haynes (Doctor Who, Being Human) and adapted by Peter Harness (Wallander, Doctor Who), this extended preview introduces the pair of prestidigitators performing extraordinary feats of legerdemain in dark private places and for astonished Londoners, including a raising of the dead, a stampede of sand stallions and an angry storm of black crows.
Here's the official synopsis:
Set at the beginning of the 19th century, England no longer believes in practical magic. The reclusive Mr Norrell (Eddie Marsan) of Hurtfew Abbey stuns the city of York when he causes the statues of York Cathedral to speak and move. With a little persuasion and help from his man of business, Childermass (Enzo Cilenti), he goes to London to help the government in the war against Napoleon. It is there Norrell summons a fairy (Marc Warren) to bring Lady Pole (Alice Englert) back from the dead, opening a whole can of worms…
Jonathan Strange (Bertie Carvel) is charming, rich, and arrogant. While trying to secure his beloved Arabella’s (Charlotte Riley) hand in marriage, he meets the magician of Threadneedle Street, Vinculus (Paul Kaye), who tells him he is destined to be a great magician. A shaken and disturbed Strange initially dismisses the claims, but intrigue overcomes; and in an attempt to find his occupation, he tries to practice magic…
Fans of Doctor Who, Harry Potter and Penny Dreadful should flock to this faithful adaptation of Clarke's popular novel, expounding on the intriguing history of magic and magicians during the Age of Napoleon. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell premieres on BBC America this summer.

A new study published in BMC Evolutionary Biology shows that lower back pain is more frequent in peo @ io9
A new study published in BMC Evolutionary Biology shows that lower back pain is more frequent in people whose spines are similar in shape to those of chimpanzees. “[Our] study suggests that the pathological vertebrae of some people may be less well adapted for walking upright,” noted lead researcher Kimberly Plomp.
We drank Scotch with Outlander’s most complicated character Dougal MacKenzie, played by the delightful (and quite tall) Graham McTavish. And while we had him on the couch imbibing the good stuff, we couldn’t help but ask who would win in a fight against Dougal? He answered.
The Joker is a perfectly weird counterpoint to the serious Dark Knight. With humor that is designed to incense and provoke, he tends to have the last laugh, and the joke is on Batman. We know from the newly released image that Jared Leto plans to play him in the upcoming Suicide Squad as in-your-face as he can get while remaining on a screen. Except ...
Except the image looks like it could be merely a promotional still for the Joker's 75th annivesary, and not representative of how he'll look in the film. According to NerdReactor, the Joker may actually be plain-faced, yet pallid.
The evidence: In the picture below, set photos show that the Joker has no tattoos. And while most of the tattoos in the official image can be covered by the Joker's outerwear, the one on his face (a dagger? a teardrop?) would still have remained.
Perhaps Leto's pale face may only be a palate for future digital effects, but it's unlikely, given that the Joker's power is crazy mania and not a Rorschach shifting-inkblot face.
Heath Ledger's Joker was maniacal yet introspective. From the image, Leto's version seems like he's barely keeping his psychosis in check. What do you think of the pale-faced, less XXXtreme version of Leto's Joker? Let us know in the comments.

Rocksteady has finally unleashed the last glorious trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, the third and final chapter in its hit videogame Arkham series. The new trailer features our beloved Caped Crusader fighting alongside Robin, his former sidekick Nightwing and Catwoman.
Batman: Arkham Knight wraps up the Batman: Arkham trilogy that was begun with Arkham Asylum in 2009. The hit game was quickly followed by Arkham City in 2011. Check out the new trailer highlighting Batman: Arkham Knight’s new dual play feature, and watch Batman kick some serious ... um ... you know:
For the first time ever, watch Batman: Arkham Knight’s exciting new “Dual Play” mechanic in action as you switch seamlessly between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in free-flow combat.
With his back against the wall, Batman turns to his closest allies to help him save Gotham City from the clutches of Scarecrow and the Arkham Knight’s army. A familiar face also returns to give The Dark Knight a message he cannot ignore…
Batman: Arkham Knight will arrive in stores on June 23, 2015. What did you think of the final trailer, and will you be picking this one up? Are you sad to see Rocksteady's popular Batman: Arkham franchise come to an end?

It’s as we all feared: It looks like director Guillermo del Toro’s planned survival horror game Silent Hills is dead as a doornail. Del Toro revealed that the new entry in Konami’s hit Silent Hill videogame franchise, starring Walking Dead fan fave Norman Reedus, won’t go ahead, and is quoted by entertainment journalist Matt Hackney, who attended the geek favorite's Q&A at Castro Theater over the weekend, as saying, "It's not gonna happen, and that breaks my greasy heart."
You can also listen to Guillermo del Toro announcing the death of Silent Hills:
The sad news comes on the heels of Hideo Kojima's recently announced (and shocking) plans to leave Konami. Kojima, who was set to helm Silent Hills, will leave after Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is released this upcoming September. Konami had assured its fans that Kojima’s departure would not affect the future of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, but they didn’t promise anything of the sort for the Silent Hill one.
With Silent Hills canceled, what'll happen to the beloved horror survival game now? What do you think? Are you bummed out by the news, or were you expecting it?

While actress Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) was attending Chicago's C2E2 over the weekend (Saturday, most specifically), there was a message for fans concerning the fate of Marvel’s Agent Carter. The message was attached to Atwell’s autograph stand ('cause she must be asked that question a bazillion times, and they probably wanted to spare Atwell from having to answer that question over and over again), and it read: "We will know in 3 weeks if Agent Carter is renewed for another season. But it looks good given the fan response."
Now, that sounds like sweet music to my ears, seeing as I absolutely LOVED Agent Carter. The series finished its fantastic eight-episode run back in February, acting as a bridge between the fall finale and winter premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and we’ve all been holding our collective breath ever since to hear that Marvel and ABC are greenlighting the series for a second season.
Despite the fact that they’re working on a S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff and a rumored Ms. Marvel TV series, it looks like we’re about to get our cake and eat it, too. Still, fingers crossed. What do you think? Are you eager for a second season of Marvel's Agent Carter? Do you think it looks good that it'll be picked up?

Bryan Singer has unveiled our first official look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse. So, how does he look?
(Now, click here to see the cool video Singer posted of our favorite "fuzzy elf" over on Twitter.)
Smit-McPhee plays Kurt Wagner, aka the blue-skinned teleporting mutant Nightcrawler, in X-Men: Apocalypse, which started production in Montreal today. In a recent interview with Den of Geek, the young actor revealed that it would not be the same Nightcrawler we saw portrayed by Alan Cumming in 2003’s X2, but one that is much closer to the comics:
"I think I’m really going to make it my own because it is kind of going back and its seeing the younger character," Smit-McPhee said. "I realize the Nightcrawler that is portrayed in X2 is one that has been through quite a bit more and has really embraced the superhero part of him—a kind of violent part. Whereas I think what they’re trying to show here is the more vulnerable Nightcrawler and the one we all kind of related to in the comics. It’s really the fun, happy, swashbuckling Nightcrawler that we all love, so I really can’t wait to portray that. He’s just very vulnerable and truthful, and grounded in his faith. I think it’s something new though that we’ll see. But as I said, all of the traditional things that we want in it—it’s still there. Hint, hint."
Does this mean that this Nightcrawler will be Mystique’s (Jennifer Lawrence) son in Bryan Singer’s upcoming movie? I certainly hope so. What do you think? Are you looking forward to see Kodi Smit-McPhee in the role? X-Men: Apocalypse will teleport in movie theaters on May 27, 2016.

The U.S. Air Force’s mysterious, classified space plane returned to Earth last year after spending a record 22 months in orbit doing ... something. Now it’s headed back to space.
It’s been revealed the unmanned ship will launch on its fourth mission next month, though we don’t actually know what it'll be doing. That fits the status quo, since the military has not revealed any of the mission goals or objectives for the X-37B project in recent years. Best guess? They’re testing out new tech and equipment for space travel, but that’s about all we know. Second-best guess? Aliens.
Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office director Randy Walden noted that the first three missions were a huge success (accomplishing whatever it was doing), and now they plan to shift the focus from “initial checkouts of the vehicle to testing of experimental payloads.” According to Space, the upcoming mission will be trying out an “experimental propulsion system.” We’re hoping this is Warp 1, but hey, we like to dream big. They’ll also be taking other equipment up to test its viability in space.
The solar-powered X-37B was built by Boeing’s Phantom Works division and measures 29 feet long by 9.5 feet tall. It’s similar in design to the space shuttle. No word on how long this mission will last, but considering the last one pushed the limit at almost two years, there’s no telling when we’ll see the X-37B again.
What do you think the Air Force is doing up there?

At this point, it seems like we’ve seen about half of Avengers: Age of Ultron, thanks to the marketing onslaught — and now the studio has dropped two more action-packed clips.
The film follows Earth’s Mightiest Heroes reassembled and tasked with taking on an enemy of their own creation — Ultron, an artificial intelligence robot army originally built as a peacekeeping force. Which was a great idea by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), until the robot realizes that the never-ending problem with humanity is humans. Oops.
These new clips offer us a look at the alliance among Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Ultron (James Spader), as the Twins seem to be a bit confused in regard to who is in the right in this battle. The second clip shows Captain America (Chris Evans) getting in on the action, saving a bystander and taking on some robot drones.
We're honestly a bit mixed on the big push to release 5,000 clips before a film actually opens, but hey, it's the world we live in. Check out the new footage below and let us know what you think:

Chris Pratt recently sat down with Movie Magic magazine and chatted up his thoughts on his main role in June's Jurassic World and how the climate of this sequel differs from previous entries in the franchise. As the trailers have revealed, Jurassic World is a thriving theme park experiencing a few growing pains as visitors to the primeval playground have grown bored by the captive dinosaur inhabitants and park operators are seeking a more visceral experience for its high-paying guests.
Here's an excerpt from Movie Magic's latest issue, with Pratt chiming in on the legacy of Jurassic Park, society's demand for threshold escapism and the perils of interfering with nature for profit:
MOVIE MAGIC: When you're talking about a fourth film in this series, the question is whether or not it will be different from what's come before.
CHRIS PRATT: It's been 22 years since the events of Jurassic Park took place. The main thing that I think is different is we're exploring a different society now. Thematically we're talking about a generation of people whose relationship to cutting edge, mind-blowing science is different. Since the park has opened, there are 20,000 people a day visiting, but they're just bored with dinosuars. Dinosaurs are not enough.
MOVIE MAGIC: They've grown apathetic to the concept.
CHRIS PRATT: Exactly. They've been around for 20 years. They're not new and exciting the way they would have been back then. They're just another thing that you can see if you want. The executives of Jurassic World are dealing with the financial loss of attendance falling off. They've introduced this newer, bigger, scarier thing to get the kids involved. Of course, that's what they're doing. They're meddling with nature now in a way to generate profit. It's a parable about the classic ethical tale of man meddling with the natural order of things for his own entertainment. Like the first one, but this one has a new theme which is kind of shining a mirror to society that's a little disenfranchised with the wonderment around them. It's definitely a whole new take...a very relevant, topical take on the franchise.
Bored with Jurassic World's mediocre menagerie of resurrected monsters? Nothing an enraged, rampaging Indominus Rex meat eater won't cure!
Directed by Colin Trevorrow and starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D'Onofrio, Jurassic World stomps into theaters on June 12, 2015.

There have been some eye-catching images found in medieval manuscripts. Known as "illumination," these images range from saints doing saintly deeds to ... um, a nun picking penises from a penis tree. (Seriously.) Now a no-less-bizarre image has been found: Yoda.
According to BoingBoing, "Historians Damien Kempf and Maria L. Gilbert, whose new book Medieval Monsters collects illustrations from bestiaries, travel books, maps, bibles, and other medieval documents, spotted Yoda in a 14th century manuscript called the Smithfield Decretals."
Take a gander. Yup, it's the Jedi Master, all right—with one exception. Here the Yoda clone isn't green but brown.
May we suggest that the image isn't Yoda but a fellow member of his unnamed species?
