The sixth season of Game of Thrones just wrapped up, with the 60th overall episode of the series having been a glorious season finale — likely one of the best episodes in the entire series. Fans are eagerly waiting to see what’s going to happen next, but season 7 won’t debut until next year. And HBO showrunners confirmed what we already feared: There are just 15 episodes left in the series at most, meaning season 7 and season 8 will have less than 10 episodes each. More →
If you’ve seen a single episode of Top Gear USA, you know that it was only a matter of time before the show was canceled. To say that remaining hosts Rutledge Wood, Tanner Foust and Adam Ferrara simply couldn’t recapture the magic of the original BBC program, and fans quickly revolted. Everyone knew going in that the show would take some time to hit its stride without Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, but fans has little faith that things would turn around after watching early episodes.
Now, we may never know if things would have turned around because the show has officially been canceled, and tonight’s episode will be its last. More →
No, Elon Musk isn’t on a serious budget. This is one very dedicated fan’s re-enactment of SpaceX landing its Falcon 9 rockets, using a very small quadrotor version of the Falcon 9, a backyard pool, and an unmanned drone barge.
SpaceX has previously described trying to land its rocket as like vaulting a pencil over the Empire State Building, and even at smaller scale, it’s clear how difficult the trick is.
It’s been over two years since Warner Bros. bought the movie rights to indie hit Minecraft, but it took until today for developer Mojang to finally reveal that the Minecraft movie has a release date. (Spoiler alert: it’s gonna be a while.)
We’ve been educated to expect after the credits scenes in all sorts of movies, but especially superhero films. If you’re a Marvel universe fan, then you know better than to leave the theater once the credits start rolling. Some of the good stuff – teasers at what’s to come in upcoming pictures – will happen during and/or after the credits in Marvel movies. Very rarely, trailers will get a similar treatment. And by very rarely we mean almost never. It probably only happens if Deadpool is involved.
When Paramount Pictures shared the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, fans were understandably wary. The tone of the action was all over the place, it was impossible to decipher what the movie was actually about and Sabotage by the Beastie Boys simply didn’t fit the feel of the trailer at all.
Two trailers later, the marketing team might have finally hit its stride.
British comedian John Oliver has made a career for himself explaining things to camera. This week, the topic that’s getting a trademark Last Week Tonight rundown is doping, good timing seeing as the Olympics and the Tour de France are happening in the next two months.
Unsurprisingly, there’s much more going on in the world of doping than individual athletes choosing to take performance-enhancing drugs. As the recent case with Russian athletes has unequivocally shown, it takes dedication and resources to beat the thorough (almost creepily thorough) doping tests.
Wow, simply wow! If you haven’t seen the grand finale of Game of Thrones’ season 6, drop whatever you’re doing and watch it. It’s one of the best episodes of the entire show, and probably the best in the season, although episode 9 will give it a run for its money. I’ll spoil this for you right here, right now: Winter is no longer “coming.” Because you knew that already. Winter is here!

As difficult as it must be to construct and film a compelling action scene, it takes more than just punching, kicking, car chases and explosions to create a truly memorable sequence that will stick in the minds of moviegoers forever.
In a new video, CineFix explores five of those sequences — action scenes that are just as smart and impressive as they are thrilling and explosive.
Exclusivity is a complex issue for the gaming industry, and has been for quite some time. Although platform exclusivity of first- and third-party titles creates competition between the console makers, it also fragments the user base and forces gamers to either put up with the fact that they’re going to miss out on major triple-A titles, or spend money on yet another video game console.
All of that said, you can see why Oculus’s aggressive stance toward acquiring VR games exclusively for its platform has been met with some derision.
Now Oculus wants to explain itself.
This weekend’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 6 was one of the most exciting and brutal in the history of the series.
The Battle of the Bastards lived up to the hype, but until you watch some of the episode’s highlights with Ghostbusters star and SNL cast member Leslie Jones, you really haven’t experienced it.
With Star Wars: Episode VIII delayed to December 2017, the stakes have gotten significantly higher for director Gareth Edwards’ spinoff movie.
In fact, fans are so anxious for the movie that any hint of trouble behind the scenes turns into a newsworthy catastrophe, as was the case when several publications began reporting that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be undergoing significant reshoots this summer. Now, weeks later, Edwards has spoken to Entertainment Weekly for their cover story to set the record straight.
