Charlie Hunnam reveals what it’s like to act alongside David Beckham

TwitterFacebook

Charlie Hunnam and Guy Ritchie don’t mind David Beckham stealing their King Arthur publicity thunder. Far from it.

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, Hunnam and Ritchie spoke about working with the legendary footballer — and they couldn’t sing his praises enough.

“I thought he was terrific,” says Hunnam in the clip above. “Not only just a kind, lovely, humble fella, but showed up so determined to do a good job. 

“I mean he’s not an actor and I don’t think has any real aspiration to be an actor, but I think he’d hired an acting coach and he was so prepared and sort of nervous and determined — and I thought ‘Wow, good for you David Beckham’.” Read more…

Marvel and Fox’s ‘The Gifted’ trailer actually mentions the X-Men, so we’re into it

TwitterFacebook

The X-Men took their first tentative steps towards the small screen in February with FX’s Legion — which centers around David Haller (Dan Stevens) the secret son of Charles Xavier, who has spent his life believing that his powerful psychic abilities were simply delusions brought on by mental illness. 

The show’s last two episodes vaguely teased the connection between David and his long-lost father, but despite a few references to mutants, the show felt largely disconnected from the sprawling cinematic universe featuring Professor X, Logan and Magneto.

Two-year-old kid in a bouncy house is already more adult than all of us

TwitterFacebook

Bounce houses are a staple at kid parties and let’s be honest, they are awesome. Most adults, if they were telling the truth, also think that.

But surprisingly, the 2-year-old boy in this video is not having the shrieking good time you’d expect. Instead, he’s standing calmly in the bounce house in his polo, slacks, and zip-up jacket. It’s very clear that he doesn’t really want to be there, but he is willing to tolerate the situation for the sake of his parents and the other kids.

We’re pretty convinced that right after the video ends, he pulled his iPhone out of his pocket, checked his email, and then made a few business calls. Read more…

Those ‘Game of Thrones’ spinoffs will be prequels, and now there are FIVE in the works

TwitterFacebook

If you’re freaking out about the possibility of four Game of Thrones spinoffs, we’ve got good news — George R. R. Martin has revealed that there are actually five potential projects in development over at HBO, and they’re not what you might expect.

The first four, as previously announced, are being written by Max Borenstein, Jane Goldman, Brian Helgeland, and Carly Wray, with Martin collaborating with the scribes on all four of the potential shows. 

“Every one of the four has visited me here in Santa Fe, some of them more than once, and we’ve spent days together discussing their ideas, the history of Westeros and the world beyond, and sundry details found only in The World of Ice & Fire and The Lands of Ice & Fire,” Martin wrote in a blog post on his LiveJournal.

14 films and TV shows ‘The Simpsons’ perfectly predicted

TwitterFacebook

Is there anything in this world The Simpsons hasn’t predicted?

The answer, it would appear, is a big ‘ol no. They predicted Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance, they predicted a whole bunch of technology advances, and — as you’ve probably already read — they even predicted a Donald Trump presidency.

But the list doesn’t stop there.

In recent months, the Twitter account @Simpsonsfilms has been on a mission to prove that The Simpsons basically foretold every single film and television show out there.

Our dystopian future isn’t found in ‘1984’ — it’s ‘Brave New World’ and ‘Infinite Jest’

TwitterFacebook

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella set a high bar for developers at the company’s annual Build conference last week with a slightly off-putting challenge: don’t let your programs — and by extension, our technology — turn human society into a subservient mass of soulless drones. 

“I do believe it’s up to us to ensure that some of the more dystopian scenarios don’t come true,” Nadella said, flanked by a backdrop of the book jacket illustrations from George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, two of the 20th century’s most well-known works of fiction.

Stunning drone video shows the evolution of the new Apple Park campus

TwitterFacebook

Apple’s stunning new campus in Cupertino, called Apple Park, was scheduled to open to employees in April 2017, but no announcements have been made during that month and we’re already deep into May. 

However, most of the buildings at the 175-acre campus appear to be near-finished at this point, and thanks to videographer Matthew Roberts, you can now see how the construction had progressed from June 2016 until now in glorious 4K resolution.
