Having a film made out of your work has to be a stressful process. In most cases, you get little say, and have to watch as Hollywood either succeeds — or fails — to do justice to the things you’ve created. And in a lot of cases, you don’t even get paid more if it does well.

While visiting California this weekend, President Donald Trump said Finnish President Sauli Niinisto told him that “raking” was part of the country’s forest management before insinuating that it’s something the United States should be doing to mitigate wildfires.
The remark was bizarre, to be sure. But now, Niinisto says that no such conversation ever happened.
President Donald Trump travelled to Northern California this weekend to survey the area affected by the Camp Fire, which has become the deadliest and most destructive fire in the state’s history. During the visit, the president appeared to double down on some of his previous rhetoric involving what he has described as forest mismanagement.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, Gizmodo's regular roundup of all the wonderfully weird and wallet-draining toys we've seen floating around the internet. This week: Fantastic Beasts comes to Hot Toys, Monopoly's got something to say about kids these days, and the fluffiest answer to Super Smash Bros. possible.
Filmstruck and its Criterion Channel are set to be shuttered at the end of this month, but it appears a viral online petition along with some high-profile celebrity endorsements from the likes of Christopher Nolan and Guillermo Del Toro may have changed some executives’ minds.
In an announcement today, Criterion said its own standalone service will return in the Spring of 2019, and it will include the excellent special features and curatorial programming that made it stand out from other platforms.
India’s right-wing, arch-nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is using government-subsidized cell phones that have been handed out to millions of people as a campaign tool, the New York Times reported on Sunday, with the BJP using a $108 million free-phone program in the state of Chhattisgarh to appeal directly to voters.
The Hot Duck has arrested our attention for weeks now, but there’s a new bird captivating the internet this week: the Bedazzled Pigeon. And this bird with flair is already in high demand.
As Gizmodo's deputy editor I never expected to become the physical embodiment of 'old man yells at cloud' for anything tech related. And yet a few weeks ago I became my own worst nightmare.
My bank card expired, and a replacement didn't arrive for a month. Life became extremely difficult, extremely quickly. I subsequently found myself walking around mumbling about the evils of a cashless society. This is my story.
Humanity's current understanding of physics may suggest faster-than-light travel is impossible, but researchers here on Earth can still observe happening in places much too far away to ever actually visit (and generally only what they looked like in the distant past). One of them is a galactic collision that, at least from our planetary vantage point, looks an awful lot like a craft going where no man has ever gone before.
Microsoft’s Cortana assistant is reportedly becoming more of an assistance aide than a standalone service, being moved from Microsoft’s AI + Research department to its Experiences & Devices Team and working with Amazon to pair it with the latter company’s Alexa technology.
Now, per Engadget, Microsoft seems to be encouraging customers to just buy Alexa-powered tech like the recently released Echo Dot and regular Echo and use Cortana through it.
Well, here’s the good news: After last week’s troubling, backpedaling, post-Rick, post-timeskip “premiere”, The Walking Dead regained some of its footing tonight to produce a perfectly fine, if not particularly memorable episode. The bad news is that something’s wrong with Michonne, and it’s kind of a bummer.
The devil's in the details when you head inside a cleanroom. Everything you plan on bringing inside, from your phone to your camera tripod, needs to be wiped down with lint-free wipes. You need to put on a special bunny suit. If you put the gloves on wrong, you need to throw them away and get a new pair. You absolutely cannot touch your bare skin with those gloves — they could pick up oils, dead skin cells, and who knows what else.
