There are certain aspects of San Andreas that ring true. The fault, for example, is real, as is the idea that California is long overdue for “the Big One.” But it probably won’t surprise you to learn that much of the rest of it is Hollywood fantasy.
U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones took to Twitter to help separate fact from fiction, pointing out the myriad ways in which this movie makes absolutely no sense — and also highlighting a few instances in which it’s dead on.

Paul Verhoven’s Robocop is one of those pop culture properties that is represented by a lot of posters. But, frankly, I think we’re probably okay with that. The film is awesome, a classic that is entertaining, subversive and worth revisiting again and again. Plus, it’s a franchise that proves if the original works, celebrate it, don’t try to do it over.
The latest poster for Robocop is by artist James White, aka Signal Noise, whose colorful, almost electric work you’ve probably seen on the site before. His take on this film is simple and iconic, and very of the ’80s era. Even with that, it still takes 10 different colors in the screenprinting process to make it pop.
Below, check out our exclusive reveal of James White’s Skuzzles Robocop poster, which will be released on May 29. Read More »
If the idea of a Wes Anderson-designed Italian cafe just isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll be more interested in working in an office building created to look like the Enterprise from Star Trek.

Both are now possibilities in far parts of the globe thanks to the ingenious ideas of a few die-hard fans of both the classic sci-fi franchise and the contemporary crime thriller series. Get details on the Star Trek Enterprise office and Breaking Bad RV bar after the jump. Read More »
If you’re a dedicated X-Men cosplayer looking for a new way to make your Wolverine costume that much better, we’ve got some good news for you.
Considering there’s no fan hardcore enough to have adamantium claws put into their arm, the problem with a Wolverine costume is that you pretty much always have to have your claws drawn or don’t have them at all. However, a new technological development has made it possible to make your own Wolverine claws that not only extend and retract, but they’ll do it with the simple flex of your arm.

2015 marks the 40th anniversary of Industrial Light and Magic, the most revered special effects company in the world. It was famously created by George Lucas in 1975 to help make his movie, Star Wars, and has since gone on to basically create almost every single big special effects movie or moment you can remember or imagine. (With a few exceptions.)
Below, you can see a jaw-dropping, one-minute montage of their 40 year history, up to and including Star Wars: The Force Awakens later this year. Check out the ILM 40th anniversary video below. Read More »
Everyone loves binge-watching shows on Netflix. But the problem with watching an entire season of any show in a week or two is that the window for people to talk about that show comes and goes very quickly. For example, even though Netflix premiered the new Marvel Studios series Daredevil just last month, no one is really talking about it anymore.
However, that’s not stopping the internet from getting into mash-up mode by giving Daredevil a couple new opening credits sequences. The first is a goofy little remix that uses the opening credits style of the comedy Night Court. But the second one done in the style of Law & Order feels much more appropriate and fits right with the vibe of the show.

And now Honest Trailers has drilled into what they call Michael Bay‘s last fun movie, full of plenty of explosions and clock-ticking.
