If you’ve played the first two episodes of Life is Strange you’ll already know that it wears its geek crown proudly, to hipster levels of whimsy. Now that the third episode Chaos Theory has been released we have hit the episode where the game has revealed its ace card and truly become something special, to mind-blowing proportions.
It is hard not to spoil the plot to the previous episode, and this one by mentioning too much but by giving just the basic plot that should be safe enough. Previously we’ve learnt of Max’s ability to rewind time and that she has returned to her home town of Arcadia Bay reconnecting with her childhood friend Chloe in a bid to discover what has happened to a missing girl.
In Chaos Theory the episode takes us into the recognisable trend of being an investigation episode bombarding us with »

Christopher Lloyd reprises his signature role as Doctor Emmet Brown from Back to the Future trilogy in the latest Lego Dimensions television spot. We wrote about Lego Dimensions back in April; it’s Lego’s attempt to take on Disney Infinity, Nintendo Amiibo and Skylanders. The new video game will use special Lego mini figures to create franchise-busting scenarios, […]

The announcement trailer itself was worth it! I mean it has Christopher Lloyd reprising his famous role as Doc Brown! What more do you need?
WB Games announced that characters from DC Comics( Lego Superman, Lego Aquaman and Lego Bane), Back to the Future(Lego Doc Brown minifigure ), and Lego Ninjango(Sensei Wu and Lloyd minifigures) have all been added to the game. The game already has Lego Batman, Lego Gandalf and Wyldstyle as the core package. These additional characters will be bonus sets.
The game "merges physical Lego brick building with interactive console gameplay." The packs " will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as special in-game abilities." You build something out of Lego's then place it on the pad and it comes to life in the game. »

Great Scott! It’s only Christopher Lloyd himself reprising his role as bonkers scientist Doc Brown to introduce a slew of new characters that will be available in Lego Dimensions when the anticipated crossover title debuts in September.
Acting as a Warner Bros. greatest hits album in many ways, the fresh faces include Doc Brown himself – who Lloyd stumbles upon in the above video – Batman, The Lord of the Rings and characters from last year’s rather excellent The Lego Movie. As the clip demonstrates, Dimensions will follow in the footsteps of Skylanders and Disney Infinity by selling starter packs and a Toy Pad, enabling players to bring their bite-sized heroes to life seamlessly in the game.
In tandem with today’s new trailer, the publisher detailed some of the features fans can expect in a few months’ time, including the amount of characters that can be brought to life at any given time. »

One of the key selling points that WB Games is pushing for Lego Dimensions is full compatibility across the line entire, both in the first game and moving forward.
To illustrate this point, a new Lego Dimensions trailer was released this morning starring none other than Back to the Future's Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd, receiving a similar mysterious package as Joel McHale did in the Lego Dimensions announcement trailer. Inside the package Doc finds a Lego Dimensions Doc Brown figure, and off on a rambling adventure he goes.
When push comes to shove, WB Games wants you to remember that "no compatibility chart is necessary" for Lego Dimensions. Doc Brown can »
Thanks to Jia Zhangke's new film, we will probably get an updated statement, for today, about the tricky matter that Jacques Rivette once closed while discussing Mizoguchi's cinema. The question of understanding (or not) a film's language and its cultural context."What is beyond doubt is that Mizoguchi's art is based on the play of personal genius within the context of a dramatic tradition. But will wanting to approach it in terms of the national culture and to find it above all such great universal values make us any the wiser? That men are men wherever they may be is something we might have predicted; to be surprised by it only tells us something about ourselves." (translation by Liz Heron)If the question stands at the center of Jia's film, the attempted answer may well be larger than China. In this film where Jia's personal filmic geography now includes territories »

Ah, the mighty Brad Bird. If he'd downed tools after he made the peerless The Iron Giant and never made another film again, we'd still be sending him Christmas cards every year. But then he went and made The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol as well. Gah. Now we have to send chocolates as well.
Bird's latest film, Tomorrowland, arrives in cinemas this week, and we caught up with him to find out more about it. Here's how the chat went...
If we boil down the movies that many of us grew up loving in the 1980s, there's relatable stakes at the heart of them. So, for instance, Back To The Future is at its centre someone trying to get his parents back together. »
Cooked up by the team behind the point and click trilogy Hector: Badge of Carnage and featuring the voice talent of the brilliant A.J. LoCascio (known for his role as Marty McFly in Telltale Games’ Back to the Future), Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark is set in The Particle Zoo, where a catastrophic event has caused all enclosures to open and all the primitive particles to escape! What used to be a cheery theme-park style environment is now utter chaos, and not in the mathematical sense of the word. The Zoo is put on lockdown, and the emergency services are called in to sort everything out. Those emergency services? Schrödinger’s Cat, of course! Thankfully he’s not alone; by collecting and commanding an army of cuddly quarks, Schrödinger’s Cat can combine and create a total of 14 unique abilities to solve any problems he may encounter. »

Industrial Light & Magic, the San Francisco-based visual effects house that has changed the course of cinema history countless times over the years, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Wired Magazine has rounded up a who's who to discuss its impact and how the advances made there — first in a sweaty Van Nuys warehouse, and now in a swank Presidio complex — have morphed the film industry into what it is today. It's well worth your time. If, however, you're the "tl;dr" type, I couldn't help but jot down a few takeaways as I read. Here are seven. But seriously, take some time to read through it if you can. It's a tight but detailed look back, full of the kind of stories — from "Star Wars" to "Transformers" — that make "movie magic" a thing. George Lucas wants Marvel to make another "Howard the Duck" movie I've actually always loved Willard Huyck »

Damon Lindelof has time traveled so much during the past decade that it's a wonder he doesn't cruise around town in a souped-up DeLorean. Writer of the J.J. Abrams creations "Lost" and the "Star Trek" reboot, Lindelof's latest venture teams him with director Brad Bird (who can't write Pixar's "The Incredibles 2" fast enough) in their long awaited sci-fi adventure "Tomorrowland."
"Tomorrowland" functions as one of those movies that doesn't quite fit into any one genre. There is of course sci-fi, but mixed in are adventure, action, drama, comedy, fantasy -- it's as if Lindelof and Bird threw a little bit of everything into a bowl, mixed it together, poured out the contents, baked it for two years and are now ready to serve it to audiences this weekend.
During our conversation with Lindelof, we talk about how this movie came to fruition, where the pins came from, dealing with »

If you had a way to see into the future, what would you do with that power? Would you use it to make money, to spark artistic inspiration, or to fix your relationship? All three happen in new indie sci-fi film “Time Lapse” when three friends discover a camera that can take photos of the future. They find the massive camera in their neighbor’s apartment, pointed directly at the living room window of their own Los Angeles bungalow apartment. Soon they figure out that “the machine,” as they call it, prints a photo at every day 8 p.m. of what’s happening 24 hours in the future. Roommate Jasper (played by George Finn) takes this opportunity to bet on dog races as the camera's Polaroids reveal the race results. Meanwhile, his painter roommate Finn (Matt O’Leary) breaks his creative block as the photos give him a peek at paintings »

In a movie that involves time travel and a climax that involves a car harnessing the power of lightning at the exact second that it hits, we don’t usually look too hard at the scientific accuracy. Well when it comes to Back to the Future, BullittRide did the math and it turns out that Marty […]

The remake clock has firmly hit the mid-1990s, and we suspect that this story is going to have few friends. That's because Sony has ordered a remake of the 1996 teen thriller, The Craft.
The original starred Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True, and was written and directed by Andrew Fleming. The new version has landed on the desk of Leigh Janiak (a promising choice, to be fair), and she'll be penning the screenplay and directing The Craft remake. Phil Graziadei will co-write the script with her.
Janiek previously directed horror movie Honeymoon, as well as an episode of the upcoming Scream TV series.
Thus far, there's no casting news, just the usual empty feeling when another remake of a well-liked movie is announced. It may all turn out well, of course, »

Quick lesson on how to change a new video game from “mild interest” to “Why isn’t this in my hands already” … add Doctor Who!
Lego Dimensions, the new entry in the interactive collectible mash-up videogame category has just fired a shot across the bow of amiibo, Skylanders and Disney INfinity by adding a timelord to its ranks of playable (and purchasable) characters.
While the game had already announced inclusion of its most popular licensed lines like Batman, Jurassic World and The Simpsons, it was quite a surprise when they announced the inclusion of properties they’d only licensed for their limited run Lego Ideas line.
Lego Ideas allows people to design their own suggestions for building kits, which Lego reviews and approves once they achieve the required 10,000 upviotes from the user community. Sets for Back to the Future, Portal 2 and Doctor Who have already been approved, with the Doctor Who »

As if the very concept of Lego Dimensions – a game that will merge and explore several geeky universes like DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The Wizard of Oz, and Back to the Future – wasn’t exciting enough, several new “Level Packs” for the game have been announced, including Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Scooby-Doo and Portal 2.
That’s right, soon you’ll be able to not only make your own miniature Lego Companion Cube and Tardis, but you’ll be able to bring those things into Lego Dimensions and add them to an already geek-tastic gaming experience.
Each Level Pack comes with a minifigure and two small Lego builds; Portal 2 (71203) will come with a Chell minifig, Companion Cube and sentry turret, Doctor Who (71204) with a Peter Capaldi minifig, Tardis and K-9, while The Simpsons (71202) comes with Homer, a television (playing The Itchy & Scratchy Show) and a miniature version of »
