Amazon just officially announced its long rumoured grocery store in the US, and it actually looks pretty neat. The concept is that there's no place to checkout. You just tap your phone on some sort of detector when you walk in and then walk out with your food. Once you've left, you are billed through your Amazon account.
Video: Our first look at The Mummy was filled with a bit more explosive action than the creepy dread you might have expected from an update to the classic monster movie. But to accompany the trailer Universal has also released a new behind-the-scenes featurette that's a little more measured — and filled with new looks at the film.
Video: The wobbly gear on Japanese LEGO genius Akiyuky's latest Great Ball Contraption might be the most hypnotic piece of engineering you've ever laid eyes on. It appears to be moving in seven different directions all at the same time, and although the machine doesn't really do much, there's still a plethora of moving parts to just sit and stare at.
Video: Eliot Slevin, his flexible fingers and his mastery of cardistry can turn a normal deck of cards into a beautifully choreographed dance that seems to tweak gravity (and can probably even cause hypnosis if you stare too long). The movement of the cards is incredible; they just fly into his palms and flow so seamlessly that you're not even sure what you're seeing is real.
Video: The ASMR effect is very pronounced in this video of cardboard and styrofoam getting shredded, because it all just sounds so damn pleasant. Or, well, it's pleasant if you like having a tingling sensation run around your ears and all the way down your spine. After all, it's Sunday and everybody can use a little bit of that.
He's lent his talents to some of the most popular animation work of the last 60 years, ranging from Sleeping Beauty, Superfriends, The Smurfs, The Jungle Book, Mulan and Toy Story 2 to Robot Chicken and Jonny Quest. He helped make the iconic opening animation from Soul Train. Yet, Floyd Norman: An Animated Life shows that he wasn't just the first black man to work at Disney. He was also a vital connection to all the ups and downs in several creative mediums for more than half a century.
Video: It's always nice (in a totally twisted way) to remind yourself of how bad things in the world could get by watching movies set in a post-apocalyptic future. They're always desolate and grim, lonely and uninviting, terribly sad and just plain awful places to live. I mean, seeing the last fictional characters on Earth trudge along a dead planet makes real life slightly more manageable. I think.
Now, it's hard to imagine Guardians of the Galaxy without that very first trailer. The one that introduced the characters through their mugshots and police records and heavily featured Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling". But director James Gunn says they nearly tossed that trailer for one that tested better.
Godzilla isn't just a Kaiju that's the king of the monsters. Godzilla doesn't just spend its time mindlessly destroying the world with its atomic breath in brain-numbing American remakes that no one should spend two hours watching. Or, fine, Godzilla is that in America. But in Japan, Godzilla represents so much more.
Video: It's fairly easy to recognise a film made by Martin Scorsese: There are scenes in slow motion mixed with wonderful long tracking shots. The stories are often about gangsters or corruption or New York, and you can bet De Niro or DiCaprio will be in them. Oh and his movies almost always include overhead shots — or as Jorge Luengo Ruiz, the person who stitched together this video, calls it: "God's view." And you know God would definitely watch Scorsese.
