Found Footage Sci-Fi The Rendlesham UFO Incident Finds A New Trailer

fb share tweet share

Found footage genre movies are a hit and miss proposition at best. It’s a stylistic approach that can be used well, certainly, but it’s overused to be sure. For every good offering, you get what feels like dozens of lackluster efforts. But that’s not going to stop people from adopting this approach, and we’ve got another one, The Rendlesham UFO Incident, on the way. Check out this new trailer and see for yourself if this is something you want to watch.

Watch Daniel Bruhl Build A Robot Child In This Eva Trailer

fb share tweet share

We’re about to be up to our waists, maybe higher, in artificially intelligent robot movies. Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie drops next week, Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina hits in April, and Marvel gets in on the act in May with Avengers: Age of Ultron wreaking havoc all over the globe. While those films are all getting relatively wide releases (Age of Ultron’s release is obviously going to be massive), Eva, a similarly themed film is flying in under the radar, but looks no less intriguing than the others. And a new trailer has surfaced for the film.

Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds, A Most Wanted Man, and he’ll also appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) plays a near-future engineer who, while working on an artificially intelligent robot child, reunites with his former lover, who is now shacking up with his estranged brother. From this trailer you get a good sense of the film’s mixture of hard science fiction and interpersonal, familial, relationship drama.

Jurassic World Introduces All Of The Dinosaur Attractions

fb share tweet share

Jurassic WorldDuring production, Jurassic World had a slew of problems with security. A number of major plot points leaked out, and were then confirmed by those involved, most notably director Colin Trevorrow. Though Vincent D’Onofrio assures fans we still don’t anywhere near the whole story yet, since these breaches, the film has taken measures to get out in front of things. One strategy they’ve employed is their viral website, gradually revealing more and more bits of information. Through this outlet we’ve seen security footage from the park, met D’Onofrio’s sinister character, and now we’re getting our first look at many of the dinosaurs we’ll see in the new film.

Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, finds the park of the title now open and fully operational. It’s the biggest tourist attraction in the world, and since some people are never satisfied, the money people commission a new dinosaur made from the DNA of a T-rex, Velociraptor, snake, and cuttlefish. If you’ve ever seen a movie before, you know that’s a bad, bad idea, and this vicious new creation escapes and wreaks havoc. Chris Pratt’s character, Owen, along with a trained team of Velociraptors, has to help rein this new beast in.

Construction On The First Hyperloop Set To Begin Next Year, Get The Details Here

fb share tweet share

HyperloopSci-fi is full to overflowing with various new modes of transport, from interstellar ships to teleporters to hoverboards. While many of these are unlikely to become a reality, especially anytime soon (I still have hope that we’ll get a decent hoverboard by the end of this year, after all, Back to the Future 2 promised), one futuristic mass transit system, the Hyperloop, is inching towards us.

Next year, construction is scheduled to begin on the world’s first Hyperloop. While it won’t be able to quite reach the 800 miles per hour that is the ultimate target speed for this kind of technology, the five-mile track in the planned community of Quay Valley, California, this is the biggest step forward for this potential new transport system.

NimoyWe lost one of the all time greats yesterday, as Leonard Nimoy passed away at the age of 83. Since this news hit, there has been an outpouring of mourning and memorials remembering the man, his work, and his legacy. Costars like William Shatner and George Takei have shared moving tributes, as have countless others in the entertainment industry and beyond. Whether we knew him personally or not, he certainly had a lasting impact on many of our lives. If his influence was ever in doubt, the President of the United States even wrote a fond farewell for our Vulcan friend. And regardless of how you feel about Barack Obama politically, you have to admit that’s pretty damn cool.

Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #5 Delivers Fast-Paced Adventure And Death Cults

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoWhile we won’t likely see new episodes of Doctor Who on TV until much later this year, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth incarnation of the venerable Time Lord shows no signs of slowing down on the pages of Titan Comic’s Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor. In fact, the latest issue, #5 in the continuing run, delivers the fastest paced adventure we’ve see yet from this title.

This issue picks up where the last one left off. The Doctor, along with badass, revenge-minded Amazon warrior Rani, and Prinyanka, the daughter of one of the Doctor’s old time travelling buddies, search for a way to defeat the ancient Indian death cult that is currently trying to crash a continent sized spaceship into the surface of the Earth, killing millions of people in the process. That’s the kind of thing secret death cults are prone to do we guess, but someone has to feed the necro-cloud we suppose.
