The second episode of Lucasfilm's new webseries Forces of Destiny is out, and it's another cute entry featuring Rey and BB-8. It's also another entry set in the 12-or-so-hour-long period between them meeting for the first time and heading to Niima Outpost to try and find the little droid's owner.

Video: The genre fiends behind Toronto's Little Terrors are at it again, adding another anthology film to a series that kicked off with the horror-centric Minutes Past Midnight. The new collection is called Galaxy of Horrors, and there's a strong science fiction element in all of the shorts. Check out the trailer below.
Remember Marvel's "One-Shot" bonus shorts? They used to be included in the home release of Marvel movies, and gave us things like post-Avengers weirdness, the best of pre-Agents of SHIELD Coulson, as well as our first look at Agent Carter. Marvel stopped doing them, but it looks like they might be returning to the idea.
Video: Adult Swim has new promotional shorts, and they are fantastically weird. This one is Fab Sauce, a film about a sauce so good that it makes every object, plant and animal irresistibly delicious. Humans too. John Carpenter should do a movie based on this.
Video: In 2247, time travel will be invented. Its only restriction? You can only travel back in time three minutes. It becomes a new safety feature for space travellers called Timedrive. Every ship will be fitted with it as a safety requirement. That's the plot of a great new short film called Exit Log, and while it sounds good in theory, it's a terrible idea in practice.
Not every Oscar-worthy film is a mammoth, Speilbergian effort. Small stuff's good too, and what better showcase than the Oscar nominated animated shorts. You've probably heard of Paperman, and the animation tech behind it, but another one, Adam and Dog has popped up on YouTube and it's worth a watch.
