Nasa Says Astronauts Will See Star Wars: The Last Jedi in Space

Nasa Says Astronauts Will See Star Wars: The Last Jedi in Space
What's better than watching Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Watching the epic space adventure while in space yourself! It turns out that an upcoming feature onboard the International Space Station will be none other than the newest installment to the Star Wars franchise. Spaceflight reporter Robin Seemangal shared the news on Twitter Tuesday and Nasa confirmed it with Inverse. The lucky astronauts onboard the Iss often enjoy movies from a digital library including The Martian, Alien and 2001: A Space Odyssey (and probably some non-space related ones, too). While it's unclear when the Iss will get access to the film, Nasa Public Affairs Officer Dan Huot said that Nasa "can confirm the crew...

Iss Astronauts Are Getting A Space Screening Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

As folks gather by the masses to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi over the next couple weeks, only a select few will get the privilege of seeing it in space. It has been confirmed by Disney and Nasa that a screening of the film will be sent into space for astronauts to enjoy:

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.

— Robin Seemangal (@nova_road) December 12, 2017

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

‘Lady Dynamite’ Star Maria Bamford Is the ‘Ultimate Artist’ Who Isn’t Afraid to Get Naked for Laughs That Cut Deep

‘Lady Dynamite’ Star Maria Bamford Is the ‘Ultimate Artist’ Who Isn’t Afraid to Get Naked for Laughs That Cut Deep
Maria Bamford, the star of perhaps Netflix’s most truly original comedy, went fully nude in the first episode of “Lady Dynamite,” just for funsies. “There are so many male nude scenes that I think are funny. I just — I’m older, I don’t give a shit,” she said, with a laugh, to IndieWire.

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?

Kids Build Space Station Playhouse In The Middle Of The Woods

This is pretty impressive for a bunch of kids. Imagine walking through the woods one day and finding what looks like an old, abandoned space station just rusting away in the woods. Now imagine that it’s fully functioning and the interior looks just as impressive as the exterior. This cool-looking space fort was built by about 90 campers in the 10-18 year old range that attended Beam Camp, which is associated with Beam Center, a NYC non-profit program that is all about teaching kids how to collaborate and create something great, with guidance and leadership from their counselors of course.

Geostorm movie review: weather bomb

MaryAnn’s quick take… Almost hilariously terrible: absurd plot machinations, dubious politics, not a single character to care about. And it doesn’t even give good disaster porn. I’m “biast” (pro): big science fiction fan

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of what Hollywood often does with sci fi

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

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: Dir. Dean Devlin (2017)

Geostorm review: Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin gets his hands on the directorial reigns for this entertaining big-budget effort that carries an urgent message with it.

Geostorm review by Paul Heath.

Geostorm review

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.

Geostorm review

Gerard Butler. Weather satellites. Reshoots. A camel. We take a look at Geostorm...

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

Exclusive Interview: Jim Sturgess On This Weekend’s Big Release ‘Geostorm’

Jim Sturgess interview: The British actor talks up his role in this weekend’s Geostorm

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

Disaster epic Geostorm comes to Android and iOS

Video game studio Sticky Studios has announced the release of Geostorm, the official turn-based puzzle game inspired by the upcoming feature film, which is available as a free download now on iOS and Android today.

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

Tom Cruise’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey

Tom Cruise’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

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?

Read More:‘American Made’ Review: Tom Cruise Finally Lands a Role Worthy of His Talents E. Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush.com

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 to Star in Alice Winocour Astronaut Drama

Eva Green in “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”

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.

Watch Astronauts In The Iss Point Out Popular Cities From Space

Pictures of the Earth from Space are fairly easy to find anymore, but there's just something about this video that left me in awe. It may the perspective of an astronaut filming from the window as he looks down and talks about all the places they're passing by...it almost doesn't feel real. Sitting here in front of my computer, it's hard to imagine staring at the Earth when 99.99% of us have never and may never get the opportunity. Anyway, you didn't come here to watch me begin an existential crisis, check out the awesome view of the Earth from the International Space Station below:

Impression: No Man's Sky Atlas Rising and Further Updates Are Both Great and Upsetting

As many No Man's Sky fans (or non fans by now) will know, we have been treated to a special updated called Atlas Rising. Since then, we have had several more updates fixing bugs and problems encountered in the game ever since that update. 

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

France, Britain Lead Europe’s Foray Into Vr Content Creation

France, Britain Lead Europe’s Foray Into Vr Content Creation
They’re already home to two of Europe’s most vibrant film industries. Now France and Britain are leading the way in the region in creating Vr content.

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.

Elon Musk Reveals SpaceX's Cool New Space Suit

Elon Musk has unveiled a photo giving us our first look at SpaceX's space suit! I've gotta say... I love the sleek cool design! It looks like it comes right out of sci-fi movie.

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.
