When it came to Steven Spielberg's 2001 sci-fi film, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, Jeanine Salla played a low-profile yet important role. Educated at Bangalore University, Salla was an expert in engineering and machine intelligence, and considered so important to the makers of A.I. that she was given a credit in the movie's posters and trailers.

The only thing was, Jeanine Salla never existed.
Before the spring of 2001, almost nothing had been seen of Spielberg's latest sci-fi movie. That the director had taken over the project from his late friend Stanley Kubrick was well known, as were its origins in a story by British sci-fi writer Brian Aldiss called Supertoys Last All Summer Long. But Spielberg had remained secretive through A.I.'s shoot, »
Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
Can a human and a machine love one another? This is the question Humans dedicates itself to not only asking, but to asking in as many ways possible.
The show exists in a setting familiar to most science-fiction fans: a world in which lifelike humanoid machines populate society’s homes and businesses. Like the hosts of Westworld or the replicants of Blade Runner, they’re anatomically identical to humans and nearly blend in with humans. However, unlike hosts and replicants, the “Synths” of Humans do not think, trick, manipulate, feel or lie. That is, except for a select few – Niska, Mia, and a handful of others – who are disrupting expectations due to their “consciousness code.”

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !
I’ve said time and time again that despite its merits the biggest flaws in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV show has been its lack of fully developing characters from the Marvel Comic Book Universe. The show (which spiraled out from The Avengers movie) is ripe to explore and showcase some of the best characters that might just not be ready or capable of making an impact on the big screen. While some characters have found a way to appear (Deathlock, Daisy Rumble Johnson, Absorbing Man, and recently Ghost Rider) a great majority of villains have either been created specifically for the show (and suddenly now appearing in the comics) or have just been throw away characters that have very little to zero ties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Comic Book Universe. »

When Pulp Fiction hit theaters in the fall of 1994, it wasn't only an instant hit, but it kickstarted Samuel L. Jackson's career, while reviving John Travolta's fading career. Both actors earned Oscar nominations for their portrayals of assassins Vic Vega and Jules Winnfield. Today we have new details that reveal John Travolta may have not even taken on the role, had he listened to some advice from a high-ranking member of the Church of Scientology, which he has belonged to for over 40 years.
During the latest episode of A&E's new documentary series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the actress hosted a Q&A session with former Scientologist Mike Rinder, who revealed that John Travolta asked him to review Quentin Tarantino's screenplay for Pulp Fiction, before he agreed to take on the role of Vic Vega. If the actor would have listened to his advice, the »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is moving through Phase 3 at a brisk pace so far, and most would probably say the results have been pretty great. Still, even though there are a ton of movies to look forward to before Phase 3 comes to a close, anticipation for Avengers: Infinity War is already building in a big way. The movie is scheduled to start filming soon and it looks like we may be seeing some unexpected faces returning to the McU. Namely, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross.
A recent report from The Daily Record claims that Avengers: Infinity War will be shooting next month in the Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. The site noted that there will be "big screen superstars" on hand for the shoot, which includes the usual suspects such as Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson. But the report did have an interesting bit in that Liv Tyler, »
Chatting to MTV News, the Guardians star admitted that it’s still fairly early on in development – Infinity War has been in active production for around two months now – and she’s yet to lay eyes on the actual screenplay. What’s more, Saldana doesn’t specify the extent of Gamora’s involvement, but it’s safe to assume her inclusion means that Joe and Anthony Russo’s event movie will indeed make room for Star-Lord, Drax, Groot and Rocket as expected.
Stay tuned for more on that front, but for now, here’s the actress touching base on Gamora’s future and the long hours in the make-up chair that await.
