Hendo Hover Promises a Working Hoverboard By 2015

Back to the Future II Hoverboard

Of all the futuristic 2015 technologies promised in Back to the Future Part II, the one we’re most disappointed hasn’t come to pass is the hoverboard. But there’s still one year until the date Marty McFly is scheduled to land, and Hendo Hover is determined to make hoverboards a reality in time for his arrival.

The company, led by Northern California couple Greg and Jill Henderson, are working hard to create a real, working hoverboard — with some help from Kickstarter, hopefully. Should all go well, the first hoverboards will be produced by October 21, 2015. Hit the jump for more details on the working hoverboard, including how you can buy one for yourself.

mockingbird

(Spoilers for last night’s Agents of SHIELD episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House,” ahead.)

Following her casting over the summer, Adrianne Palicki made her first appearance as Bobbi Morse on Agents of SHIELD in last night’s episode. She even got to kick some serious ass in her role, beating up baddies with her signature batons.

But that was Bobbi undercover as a Hydra agent, in her Hydra uniform. It’s not really the same thing as seeing Mockingbird in action. So while we wait for that glorious day, we have a first look at Palicki’s Mockingbird costume. Hit the jump to see the Agents of SHIELD Mockingbird.

MSDBAPA FE007

A few weeks ago, we got word that the 1988 Tom Hanks classic Big was being adapted for the small screen by Fox. Now ABC is also mining Hanks’ resume for material, and has come up with a TV series based on the 1984 comedy Bachelor Party. If someone options Splash, we can officially call “TV shows based on ’80s comedies starring Tom Hanks” a new hyper-specific trend.

DF-02064 - Joel Edgerton stars as Ramses.

Ridley Scott has said that one of the things that intrigued him about Exodus: Gods and Kings was how big it was — the grand scale, the giant story, the massive challenges. And earlier this week, a rumor went around that the film would have an enormous running time to match.

The story had an aura of plausibility to it because Exodus: Gods and Kings really is an epic tale, and because Scott has flirted with extra-long runtimes before. His Kingdom of Heaven director’s cut ran well over three hours, and was better for it. But could it really be true in this case? Get the facts about the Exodus Gods and Kings runtime after the jump.

Woman in Black 2

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death won’t be out in time for Halloween this year, but its first trailer is. The horror sequel picks up about 40 years after 2012′s The Woman in Black, during the London Blitz of World War II. With nowhere else to turn, a group of schoolchildren are evacuated to the Eel Marsh House, which has lain empty for years. Surely there they’ll be safe, far away from the terrible bombs in the city.

But this is a horror movie, so of course that turns out not to be the case. Instead of providing sanctuary, the house unleashes its own special brand of terror.¬†Phoebe Fox plays Eve, the kids’ teacher, and Jeremy Irvine is local military commander Harry. Hit the jump to see the first The Woman in Black Angel of Death trailer.
