Watch: The Real Science Behind 'Interstellar' Will Kinda Blow Your Mind

Fri, 10/24/2014 - 09:07

We don’t know a whole lot about Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which is amazing because it’s just weeks away from landing in theaters. What we do know is that it involves science fiction, with Matthew McConaughey and a crew exploring outer space in search of a new planet for humans to inhabit. However, it turns out the science might not be so much fiction after all. Physicist Kip Thorne is an executive producer on the project, and he spent months meeting with Nolan...

Why Christian Bale's Role As Steve Jobs Will Be One of the Hardest He's Ever Taken On

Thu, 10/23/2014 - 09:22

Earlier this year, we heard that David Fincher would only direct a movie based on the life and career of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs if Christian Bale agreed to star.

It's a challenging role, one that will track Jobs in real time during three pivotal events in Apple's history, and now Bale is officially attached to the film,...

Feel the Fear: Why I Let My Kids Watch Scary Movies

Tue, 10/21/2014 - 21:46

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” - Franklin Delano Roosevelt The famous words of FDR could not hold more true.
