From the moment that Marvel decided to scrap its plans for an Inhumans movie in favor of an ABC television series, I was concerned.

We’d say this video is another good example of why it’s important to look both ways before crossing the road, but this out-of-control bus in Reading, comes around the corner so quickly that local badass Simon Smith wouldn’t have been able to avoid, even if he saw it coming. Read More >>

Lifts of the Future Will Move Sideways Without a Single Cable

One of the biggest engineering challenges of building a towering skyscraper isn’t keeping the structure from falling over, it’s moving all the people around inside of it.

This Gorgeous 8-bit Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Was Made On a Vintage Apple IIc

Short of making it longer, there’s little that you can do to make the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi more intense than it already is. If you’re a lover of bitmap art with a copy of Dazzle Draw and a working Apple II on hand, though, one of those things you can do is remake the whole trailer. Read More >>

This Animated Short Illustrates What Happens When You Take Minimalism To An Extreme

The title of Scorch Motion's short, Life Without Stuff, suggests a solid anti-consumerist philosophy — something everyone, not just hoarders, could probably stand to embrace.

Watch The Dark Knight Trilogy Recut As A Black Panther Trailer

Marvel will never make a film as good as The Dark Knight. There, I said it. The first teaser for the studio's upcoming Black Panther flick (due out in February 2018) was slickly edited, sure.
