Jake Gyllenhaal has been making headlines this week for his recent appearance on the new podcast Mystery Show, and once you listen for yourself, you'll totally understand why. The actor, who has always purported to be six feet tall, was the subject of a debate over how Hollywood stars really measure up and why they look taller and shorter depending on the movie role or red carpet appearance. Here's the gist of the show: every week, writer and producer Starlee Kine - who you may know from her work on This American Life - attempts to "solve a mystery," and on this particular episode, she and her friends set out to confirm, once and for all, how tall Jake Gyllenhaal really is. After lots of running around NYC trying to spot Jake in person, Starlee was able to get in contact with him by way of writer Sloane Crosley, who »

Ever wonder what the code you see running on screens in movies and television is all aboutc Is it actually germane to the plot or just a bunch of garbage leading to a close-up shot of a character hitting the "Enter" buttonc Well, a Tumblr site by the apt name of Source Code in TV and Films seeks to answer that question and features plenty of television shows as well as movies such as Kingsman: The Secret Service, Godzilla and Blackhat, but the one that caught my eye was the above capture from Ex Machina, primarily because it reveals a cool little Easter Egg that most of us never would have found. Here's the code: #BlueBook code decryption import sys def sieve(n): x = 1 * n x1 = 0 for i in range(2,n/2): j = 2 * i while j < n: xj=0 j = j+i return x def prime(n,x): i »

Duncan Jones is an exciting prospect right now. Having delivered a taut and magnificently acted debut with Moon, and then followed up with the flawed but entertaining and thrilling Source Code, he's currently putting together his first big Hollywood blockbuster - Warcraft. I can't tell you a whole lot about the adaptation because I've never played the game (I can't afford to lose another 30 hours of my week to online shenanigans!!), but I can tell you I'm really looking forward to seeing what he does with this property. The scale of the world that the players inhabit is insanely huge and because if the scope of the universe he has to mine for stories, there really could be some magnificent tales to tell with this franchise. Fantasy movies have proven to be big business and it doesnt get much bigger in the world of fantasy than Warcraft. Here's our first »

I don't know much about the video game "World of Warcraft" other than it's a massive multiplayer online role-playing game and that people get pretty obsessed with it. What I do know, though, is Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) is directing Warcraft, a feature film adaptation of the game that tells of a conflict between the opposing forces of the Horde and the Alliance. The movie has been teased at various comic book conventions, but today Wire Magazine offers up the first official pictures. The focus of the pics is a character named Orgrim Doomhammer and he will be played by Robert Kazinsky (Macklyn Warlow from "True Blood") and in describing the search for the right actor Jones tells "Wired", "We were looking for someone who would be able to perform the gruffness, the humor, and the toughness of this character," and given Warlow's place in the "True Blood" world »

The last time we heard anything on the Warcraft front, it was that the release date was bumped back from March of next year to the following June. A smart move on Universal's part if they want Duncan Jones' (Source Code, Moon) big-budget fantasy to find an audience. If anything, this post-production time (nearly 2 years!) will allow the animators at Ilm to refine their work on what looks to be a movie with a cast that's nearly 50% digital (a la Dawn Of The Planet Of »
