Pixels short film

Now that everyone is excited about the Pixels movie following the debut of the first Pixels teaser trailer, I thought it would be fun to revisit the Pixels short film which started it all. The following two-minute Pixels short film was released in April 2010 and went viral. Sony acquired the rights to turn the short film into a movie, and we will finally be seeing that movie soon. After the jump you can read Russ Fischer’s original April 8th 2010 report on the Pixels short film, followed by an embed of the short.

new Ex Machina trailer

Ex Machina, the directorial debut from screenwriter and producer Alex Garland (Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Dredd) may be the antidote for your original sci-fi blues. At least that’s what the response in the film’s run in the UK and other countries suggests, and what the very positive reviews out of SXSW seem to indicate. The film went over particularly well in its US debut at the festival last weekend.

Garland has crafted a film in which a programmer and a CEO, played by Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac test, and are tested by Ava (Alicia Vikander), a powerful artificial intelligence. The film sounds like the next step in an evolutionary ladder that goes from Frankenstein to Blade Runner, and you can see a new Ex Machina trailer below.   Read More »

Leviathan concept trailer

Irish filmmaker Ruari Robinson, who made the short Blinky and was attached to one version of the live-action Akira remake, wants to make a large scale sci-fi film inspired in part by Moby Dick, and he’s created a proof of concept trailer to show off some of his ideas. The Leviathan would be a film in which hunters harvest the eggs of a mind-bogglingly huge animal in order to power interstellar travel. While the particulars of the film remain mysterious, if that idea sounds good you should immediately watch The Leviathan concept trailer. Read More »

Star Wars Aftermath header

Star Wars has the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and soon we’ll see the sequel trilogy. Before that new series bows, however, we’ll get the book trilogy. One of the first books announced for the large-scale publishing event Journey to the Force Awakens is called Star Wars Aftermath. We’ve previously written about the plot of the book, which centers on a lone Rebel scout who learns of a secret Imperial meeting after the Battle of Endor, and we’ve covered the authorChuck Wendig.

Now we know Aftermath is the first book in a trilogy that will answer some crucial questions about the Galaxy immediately after the destruction of the second Death Star on the way to the events of The Force Awakens. We also know a bit more about the plot, which characters will or will not appear and clues about The Force Awakens. Read about all that, and see the full book cover, below. Read More »

Interstellar Text Adventure

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is the height of technical cinema. Whether you love or hate the story, the filmmaking used to bring it to life is extraordinary. The practical and digital effects, the cinematography, production design, IMAX sequences, sound effects, and score are just some of the best of the best. It’s pretty much as high-tech as a movie gets.

So what better way to celebrate Tuesday’s digital release (and the impending Blu-ray release) than with the lowest-tech game imaginable?

Paramount has launched the Interstellar Text Adventure, a text-based game similar to the popular computer games of the early 1980s. There are no images, just text; you have to type in your commands to travel through the galaxy. It’s a lot of fun and a nice throwback. Read More »
