Live coverage: Watch live streaming video from Samsung’s big Galaxy Note 5 event

It’s not exactly a secret at this point: Samsung is about to unveil its brand new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ phablets. The company went back to the drawing board with its Galaxy S lineup earlier this year and designed the Galaxy S6 from scratch. Well, OK, so maybe it had a little inspiration. But the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge marked the first time Samsung launched phones with sleek designs and premium materials to match their class-leading displays and killer performance.

Now, its time to see if Samsung plans to be just as original with this year’s flagship phablets as it was with its flagship smartphones. More →

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: 12 new photos from the set

Earlier this week, Star Wars fans got excited over a second of unseen footage that appeared in a new trailer for the upcoming sequel. It might sound small, but for a movie being kept as close to the vest as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was a big deal.

On Wednesday, fans were treated to another surprise when Entertainment Weekly unveiled 12 new photos from the set of the film to go along with its cover story. More →

Thousands of Fantastic Four fans beg Fox to stop making Fantastic Four movies

Thousands of Fantastic Four fans beg Fox to stop making Fantastic Four movies

At the moment, Fantastic Four is sitting at 9% on RottenTomatoes, making it one of the most critically panned comic book films in history. Unless the score starts trending upwards any time soon, Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot will officially be worse than 1997’s Batman & Robin in the eyes of critics.

Taking all this into consideration, it’s not surprising to see that fans of the classic comic are desperate to get the characters out of Fox’s hands. More →

New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer offers a morsel of never-before-seen footage

It’s been nearly four months since the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit YouTube. For fans of the series, it has been an excruciating wait as J.J. Abrams and the cast trickle out bits and pieces of information regarding one of the most highly anticipated sequels of the decade, which is why two seconds of new footage is enough to deserve a post of its own.

Steve Jobs Movie Trailer

Aaron Sorkin’s awful-looking Steve Jobs movie has a new trailer

Aaron Sorkin’s awful-looking Steve Jobs movie has a new trailer

I try not to judge a book by its cover, but the more I see of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, the less I want to see it. Steve Jobs was a fascinating, brilliant, volatile leader in the industry, but with three films about the man all releasing within three years of one another, I think we might finally be oversaturated.

It looks like we’re stuck with Affleck as Batman for at least three more movies

In order to compete with the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC is hosting an explosive event of its own next year by pitting two heroes against each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This is the film that will open up DC’s own movie universe, but going forward, Batman may play an even larger role than we’d previously assumed. More →
