Steven Spielberg: 'Cold War was polite compared to today's spying and cyber-hacking'
1 hour ago
At a press conference for his new film Bridge of Spies, the director compared today's cyber-hacking to spying during the Cold War.
"The way it is today, you just don't know that when you're watching television, is television actually watching you? There are just so many eyes on all of us."
Spielberg's latest film is based on the real-life story of Brooklyn lawyer James B Donovan, who was recruited by the CIA to defend Soviet spy Rudolf Abel. Donovan later arranged Abel's swap with captured U2 pilot Gary Powers.

Loki controlling Ultron? Tom Hiddleston finally explains why he was cut from Avengers: Age of Ultron
4 hours ago
The despicably charming Tom Hiddleston was meant to appear as the despicably charming Loki for a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but was cut at the last minute. Finally, the star himself explains why.
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Hiddleston says that test screening audiences presumed that Loki's appearance in Thor's dream sequence meant The God of Mischief was actually controlling the film's real villain, evil AI Ultron.
Click play on the video above to see the trickster elaborate on what actually happened when Marvel head honcho Kevin Fiege called him up to explain why he'd been cut.
For anyone allergic to moving images, however, here are just a few of his words, typed out for your reading pleasure:
"In test screenings, audiences had overemphasised Loki's role, so they thought that because I was in it, I was controlling Ultron, and it was actually imbalancing people's expectations."
Huge Home Alone plot hole fixed by genius fan
5 hours ago
One of the most niggling plot holes in the history of cinema has finally been solved by a genius bit of thinking from a die-hard fan. The problem: How did Kevin call for a pizza, but not his parents?
Obnoxious and annoying, clever and resourceful, Macaulay Culkin's 8-year-old trapsman Kevin McCallister dials up a local pizza joint despite a fallen tree meaning the lines were down.
The answer is down to the way phone lines worked in the early '90s and late '80s. You see, you could, conceivably, call a local line and not be able to call Paris - where his parents were - due to downed lines.
Here's Redditor Phire with the perfect explanation:
"I always assumed the tree actually severed the main trunk line to the whole town, but local calls within the same exchange still worked."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2's running time: Final film looks to be the longest movie of the series
5 hours ago
For hardcore fans, no running time would have been long enough for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2.
Luckily for us, it looks like the concluding chapter of the hugely successful franchise will at least be the longest film of the series.
According to a press release about the film's UK premiere on November 5, Mockingjay - Part 2 will be 147 minutes long - one minute longer than Catching Fire.
When added to Mockingjay - Part 1's relatively svelte running time of 123 minutes, that means Suzanne Collins's final book has been transformed into an epic four-and-a-half hours of film.
The premiere at London's Odeon Leicester Square is set to be attended by the film's stars Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
Is Benicio Del Toro a Jedi? Oscar winner wants a pink lightsaber in Star Wars: Episode 8
5 hours ago
Speaking to Digital Spy during his press rounds for Sicario, the Oscar-winning actor isn't afraid of wielding a weapon that catches the eye.
Whether he's a playing a Jedi or a Sith remains to be seen - though most Siths would shy away from a pink lightsaber, right?
Speaking recently about whether he'll be a villain or on the side of the light, Del Toro told Entertainment Tonight:
"I don't know if he's a villain. People are saying that, but it's like they read a different script than I read."
"It's nice to keep people in the dark, a little bit of mystery is good," he added. "If they want to believe it's the villain, then good."

The Cabin in the Woods could get a sequel - the studio wants it but there aren't any ideas yet
7 hours ago
The Cabin in the Woods may have had a pretty conclusive ending, but its box office success means that the studio apparently wants a sequel.
Drew Goddard's directorial debut wrapped in 2009 but was stuck in post-development hell when MGM filed for bankruptcy. It was finally released in the spring of 2012.
"The studio wants to do it. They've come to us," Goddard told Den of Geek of the possibility of a follow-up.
"The funny part is, I don't think we planned that movie to do a sequel, you know?"
He added: "The fun thing about Cabin is, the rules are pretty crazy.
"We get away with a lot of crazy stuff. So, I'm sure we could figure it out if we got inspired to.

Daniel Craig says anyone taking pictures of him and his mates off duty would "get thumped"
9 hours ago
Daniel Craig has suggested that people would "get thumped" if they took pictures of him off duty.
During a new interview to promote the release of forthcoming 007 film Spectre, the James Bond star said that he's not a fan of having his photo taken while he's enjoying private time with friends or family.
"If me and my mates went out and all got shitfaced, and someone started taking photographs, they'd get thumped," he told The Sunday Times Culture.
"The other thing I don't get is, people are happy to take pictures of me without asking. But things have changed so rapidly.
"Nobody really gives a f**k what I think about the modern world, but that part I can do without."
The actor also suggested that Spectre may be his last outing as Bond, saying "maybe" despite previously claiming that he will be staying on as the iconic spy for at least one more film. »

Emily Blunt has said that she took up Us citizenship for "tax reasons".
"It's mainly for tax reasons," she told The Sunday Times Style supplement. "I didn't want to renounce my Queen."

Director George Miller has two scripts ready for the sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: The Wasteland
11 hours ago
Speaking to Top Gear, Miller explained that because of Fury Road's difficult journey to the big screen, there'd been a lot of time to get some writing done, resulting in these two spare scripts.
"This film [Fury Road] was green lit three times and fell over three times over a decade," Miller said.
"We went to shoot with Mel Gibson back in 2001, but then 9/11 happened, and the American dollar collapsed against the Australian dollar close to 30%, so we lost that amount of budget overnight."
"We were then rained out of Australia," Miller added. "The desert rained for the first time in 15 years, and we ended up in South West Africa, Namibia."
"But in this process, we had dug down deep into the backstory, »
