Stranded (2002 Video)
I received confirmation from Disney and Nasa sources that the crew aboard the International Space Station will be screening Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
More details soon.

I'm not exactly sure I'd want to watch a film that features ships exploding in space, but then again I would be pretty salty if I was missing out on a Star Wars film while I was in space so I'm sure there are plenty of people on board psyched about it. Apparently, movie screenings at the Iss aren't an uncommon thing according to

As awesome as watching a movie in the best film series ever to take place in space while actually in space sounds, it's really out of necessity for those about the International Space Station. It isn't as though they can just come
The scene features Bamford dodging attempts to pixelize her naughtiest bits, in an effort to (as one of her pet pugs explains in voice-over) celebrate “body positivity.” That’s an absurd sentence to write, out of context. But it fits perfectly with the mindset that drives “Lady Dynamite,” which features Bamford as a somewhat fictionalized version of herself, dealing with the pitfalls and pratfalls of the entertainment industry in a heightened reality where dogs can talk, the boundaries of space and time don’t matter, and, really, why shouldn’t a 40-something woman strut around naked?

Who was it who said, “Everybody talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it”? Well, we showed that guy! After the catastrophic weather year of 2019 (which apparently made 2017 look like a pleasantly warm and breezy day), we — that is, humanity — “fought back” against, I guess, ourselves and the climate disasters we brought upon our planet, by launching a network of weather-control satellites covering the entire globe, and operated from a newly supercool International Space Station, which has a big wheel and gravity and factories to make more satellites,
Geostorm review by Paul Heath.
What the world probably doesn’t need right now is a disaster movie, but a disaster movie is just what we’ve been handed with this big-budget event movie, strangely positioned for release well outside the summer window where you would almost certainly expect it to end up. However, Geostorm is not the film you expect it to be at all.
Scripted by Dean Devlin and Paul Guyot, who have found success recently on the TV series The Librarians, Geostorm is every bit the epic, schmaltzy, city-destroying popcorn movie you expect it to be, but it has an unexpected message running through its core.
The film opens a couple of years from now where we have absolutely destroyed our planet.
Your relationship with Geostorm may be best measured by where you stand on 1994’s Charlie Sheen skydiving movie, Terminal Velocity. Terminal Velocity, by many, was dismissed as a trashy, throwaway action movie. But I always thought it was an absolute hoot. It was never going to challenge the awards season, but as a piece of filmed entertainment, it’s become the kind of film that Hollywood’s all-but-forgotten how to make. The joyously daft action and/or effects movie that the 90s at one stage thrived on.
What a pleasure, then, to report that Geostorm captures that spirit. I'm not sure if that's by luck or design, either. Still, I happily confess it had me early on, with the idea that a raging weather movie was being crossed with a presidential assassination thriller. As it turns out
The Hollywood News talks to one of the stars of new action-adventure film Geostorm. You can check out our exclusive Jim Sturgess interview below.
In cinemas this weekend is Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin‘s massive disaster epic Geostorm, a frenetic action-adventure movie set in a world where we are able to control the weather. This is all down to Gerard Butler’s Jake Lawson, who has invented a device called the ‘Dutchboy’, a network of satellites that can control the climate all around the world.

Jake, ousted by his own company shortly after ‘Dutchboy’ went live, is called upon by his brother, Max (Jim Sturgess), who is now a top-notch suit at the White House after the device starts to fail. Jake must travel into orbit to the
Geostorm immerses players in a world filled with cataclysmic events and environmental dangers as they puzzle their way to safety and combines turn-based puzzle gameplay with larger than life natural disasters. Floods, lightning storms and other weather threats add a whole new layer to the gameplay with surprising results.
The story of Geostorm follows three members of the Dutch Boy project, tasked with gathering and transferring essential data to the International Space Station. Sabotaged weather control satellites are destroying cities around the globe, only with the data can the satellites be stopped. In addition to the three chapters the game launches with, a fourth chapter will be released later this year, adding new levels on
Last weekend saw the release of the latest Tom Cruise vehicle, “American Made,” and critics are raving that it’s better than “The Mummy!” In honor of this great achievement, we ask: What is Tom Cruise’s greatest performance?

The greatest Tom Cruise performance of all time happened on Oprah’s couch in 2005. But in the movies? “Magnolia.” It’s the best, but it’s also the “most” Cruise performance. His batshit insanity just barely holds together the fragile insecurity of the man beneath the horndog motivation speaker.
Eva Green is heading to space. The “Penny Dreadful” alumna has signed on to star in Alice Winocour’s next feature, a bilingual action-drama that centers on an astronaut. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the French writer-director is currently prepping the project.
Tentatively titled “Proxima,” the film will see Green playing an astronaut “with the European Space Agency (Esa) that is preparing to go on a one-year mission to the International Space Station (Iss), but must first face intense training as well as the impending separation from her seven-year-old daughter,” THR summarizes. Winocour described “Proxima” as being “about how you put your fears and pain into something bigger than your life.”
“The idea is also to have an astronaut that can be a superheroine and at the same time a mother, because I think in movies mothers are always very weak characters,” the “Augustine” helmer and writer observed. “It’s time that women should assume that you can be an astronaut and a mother too.”
Dharamsala is producing and Pathe will distribute “Proxima.” The space project follows on the heels of the success of “Hidden Figures.” The critically acclaimed story — which has grossed over $230 million worldwide — shines a spotlight on Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), brilliant women of color who played an instrumental role in the space race while working at Nasa.
Winocour won a César award last year for co-writing “Mustang” with its director, Deniz Gamze Ergüven. The Oscar-nominated coming-of-age story follows repressed sisters living in Turkey. She most recently directed “Disorder,” a home-invasion thriller. “In making the film I wanted to explore the category of genre films, which is generally reserved for male directors. In fact, I used aspects of genre film to create a variation on genre. I also included many of my own personal feelings and experiences,” Winocour told us. “I wanted to show that there are no boundaries for women directors and prove that women are legitimate choices to direct all kinds of films, including war films or thrillers. There should be no boundaries for women directors.”
Green’s credits include “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “300: Rise of an Empire,” and “Casino Royale.” She stars alongside Alicia Vikander in Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” a drama about sisters currently screening at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Eva Green to Star in Alice Winocour Astronaut Drama was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
Winocour is currently prepping the project, tentatively titled Proxima[/link], for a nine-week shoot beginning in January. Green will be joined by German actor Lars Eidinger (Sils Maria, Sense8). An American co-star is soon to be announced for the bilingual drama.

Here is some of my own gameplay showing some of the new features in the game, as well as showing off my base and freighter:
This video shows the game exactly after I started it up once the Atlas Rising and Update 1.34 were completed. Atlas Rising boasts some new missions, graphics, interfaces and discoveries. Here are some things I was really impressed, and upset, with.
Visual User Interfaces
First of all, all the user interfaces really look amazing. There are so many to choose between, such as the flight mode in your space ship with the new radar imagery and parking assists, to the Galaxy map
The picture of the new SpaceX space suit comes to us via Musk's official Instagram page and it is the real deal. Musk notes that the suit is not a mockup, but a fully functioning suit that has been tested in double vacuum pressure setting. The suit is white with black highlights that resemble space suits of old while looking into the future. Musk stated
Between them, the two countries have eight of the 22 titles competing in the upcoming Venice Film Festival’s new virtual-reality section — the world’s first competitive Vr strand at a film festival. Add in an entrant apiece from Italy and Denmark, and the number of European titles in the competition exceeds that of the U.S.
“The Vr industry is booming in Europe, which is great for all of us,” said Sol Rogers, CEO and founder of Rewind, the British creator of “Ghost in the Shell Vr,” with U.S. banner Here Be Dragons, and “Home: A Vr Spacewalk,” which just picked up an award at Cannes Lions.
A report in August identified 487 virtual-reality companies operating in Europe, up from the 300 recorded in February.
The suits will be worn by the Nasa astronauts who will pilot the SpaceX Dragon Capsule, which will be used to take astronauts to and from the International Space Station. We don't really have any details or specs on the suit yet, but Musk did include the following comment with the photo:
“Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup). Already tested to double vacuum pressure. Was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function. Easy to do either separately.”
The suit definitely has style. Check it out!
First picture of SpaceX spacesuit. More in days to follow. Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup). Already tested to double vacuum pressure. Was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function.
