Without a doubt, one of the most popular characters from the big screen in 2014 was Rocket Raccoon, the feisty, anthropomorphic creature with big guns and even bigger attitude in Guardians of the Galaxy. Bradley Cooper gave the character his signature voice, but a whole crew of people helped bring the little guy to life, and now a short little featurette from the visual effects company Framestore shows how they made it happen.

Watch! Here's Framestore's "Rocket Reel" featurette for Guardians of the Galaxy (via SlashFilm): Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, »

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...
Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.
The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”
Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and »
It's a new year, and we have two more Marvel Studios releases to look forward to. We just got a new trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron (check out our closer examination of it right here), and a teaser trailer for Ant-Man coming later in the summer.
