Power Rangers Teaser Poster

Even though we got quite a lengthy teaser trailer for the latest big screen iteration of Power Rangers, we still haven’t seen the titular teenage superheroes in action on screen yet.

the lawnmower man

In 2014, Facebook acquired Oculus—a scrappy start-up dedicated to resurrecting virtual reality—for $2 billion. Since then, every major player in the tech space (from Google and Microsoft to Sony and Samsung) has begun to prepare for a very virtual future.

During that time, I’ve had hundreds of conversations with those in the burgeoning VR industry and, at some point, almost inevitably, The Lawnmower Man—the 1992 sci-film film directed by Brett Leonard—eventually comes up.

X-Men Changed The Mummy

The titular movie monster in Universal’s reboot of The Mummy is already drastically different than any previous incarnation because this is the first time the undead terror has been played by a woman. Sofia Boutella is the monster at the center of the movie, however, the original plan wasn’t going to be all that innovative.
