Take a look at the Nic Cage ‘Superman’ movie that Tim Burton and Kevin Smith almost made
In the late ’90s, Kevin Smith, Tim Burton, and Nicolas Cage teamed up to make what easily would have become either the most amazing or the most terrible Superman film ever made. Unfortunately, neither happened. After a long production period, the movie ultimately was put on hold and never made, much to the disappointment and/or relief of fans.
We piloted a giant robot from ‘Pacific Rim’ using Oculus Rift
While it’s a fun experience visually (it all runs atop Unreal Engine 4 with help from Industrial Light and Magic), it definitely suffers from the lack of any real control on the part of the player. Maybe that will change in future builds; while Legendary hinted that this could see public release in a few years, nothing right now is certain.

Looks a lot like ‘Prometheus’
'Final Fantasy' designer creates the wildest take on Batman yet
If nothing else, Square Enix artist Tetsuya Nomura has built up a distinctive style over the years — his androgynous, zipper-heavy designs for characters in games like Kingdom Hearts and the Final Fantasy series are recognizable anywhere. But none of that will have prepared you for his surreal take on Batman, revealed in action figure form at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
'Lucy' review: dissecting Scarlett Johansson's perfect brain
Given people’s desire to dump money on all sorts of self-improving pills, superfoods, fitness trackers, and life hacks, it’s no wonder that Hollywood has taken to neuroscience’s most persistent myth — the idea that humans only use one-fifth of their brains. Way back in 1996, John Travolta gained access to the rest of his and learned to levitate things in Phenomenon; a few years ago Limitless’ Bradley Cooper took a “smart pill” and used his new brain power to get super-rich playing the stock market. Now, with Lucy, France’s most blockbuster-ready director Luc Besson takes a stab at the 100 percent human.
The best calendar app for iPhone
A great calendar app is like a great assistant. It lets you know 30 minutes before important appointments, updates you about events with work friends and college friends, and has directions ready as you walk out the door. I can’t afford an assistant, but luckily calendars apps are a lot more affordable: some of the best options for iPhone can be had for under $9.99. These apps do a lot more than Apple’s stock calendar app, which has only one great feature: that its icon changes to show the date on your home screen. When you look elsewhere, you might find deep integration with Facebook events, one-tap access to conference calls, and even sports schedules you can subscribe to with one tap.
Amazon Fire Phone review
Time and time again, however, the Fire Phone has reminded me that there’s a difference between good ideas about phones and good phones. A big difference.
