Stephen King is the undisputed master of horror. He’s an incredibly prolific writer, penning over 56 books under his own name alone, and is one of the most adapted authors alive, with over 120 adaptations of his books, scripts, and short stories on film and television. In those thousands of pages, there have been more…
Power trio Stephen King, John Cusack, and Samuel L. Jackson—who previously worked on 1408 together—reunited for Cell, an adaptation of King’s apocalyptic tale about a sinister cell phone signal that turns the afflicted into kill-crazy zombies. Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) directs.
Joe Russo discusses Civil War’s darker tone. Jared Leto extols the virtues of playing the Joker in Suicide Squad. Gwendoline Christie promises more Brienne action on Game of Thrones this year. Plus Ewan McGregor is game for an Obi-Wan movie, new pictures from Arrow, and a new SHIELD clip. To me, my Spoilers!
Depending on who you talk to, LTE-U—the term given to using cellular LTE technology to transmit in unlicensed airwaves—is either the future of communications, or a terrible idea that will wreck wi-fi. The FCC is studiously not taking sides in the argument, but is allowing further testing.
Oh no! AT&T is raising the price of grandfathered unlimited data plans to thirty-five whole dollars. Stop whining: it’s still a fantastic deal for anyone fortunate to have it.
Self/Less, the new movie starring Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds, clearly wants to remind you of Limitless, the hit movie from 2011. There’s the similar title, but also another story of human enhancement with a dark side. And Self/Less proves that “posthuman thrillers” are becoming a genre.
Death is a scary enough thing but for many, the unknown that comes after death is even scarier. Do we simply stop being or is there something for our subconsciousness after our physical body stops breathing? Writer/director Merlin Dervisevic has an idea of what may come next and it's not pleasant.
Sometimes, you see a movie that opens up a whole universe of possibilities, leaving you wondering where these characters will go next. So much adventure waiting to happen! And then... there are movies that really don't need a sequel, but get one anyway. Here are 10 film sequels that it's really hard to believe…
A Nobel winner has declared a boycott of top science journals, including Nature, Cell, and Science. Biologist Randy Schekman says leading academic journals are distorting the scientific process, encouraging trendy research, and taking bribes. It's a "tyranny," he says, that must be broken.
For the weekend: vintage science art from the backs of books in LIFE Magazine's Science Library, published throughout the 1960s by Time Inc. See also: this set of minimalist science posters by graphic designer Kazumasa Nagai, also featured in the magazine's 60s Science Library.
Check out the weird trailer for Vanishing Waves, a Lithuanian erotic science fiction film that just got U.S. distribution. In this film, a neuroscientist volunteers to test a new treatment that allows him to go inside the thoughts of a coma patient, resulting in trippy and sexual imagery. It's NSFW!
Everyone moans about their cell carrier. According to a brand new Pew survey on that very topic, 77 percent of us are dissatisfied with with download speeds; 72 percent gripe about dropped calls; and 69 percent are annoyed at the amount of text message spam we receive. But what annoys you most about your cell carrier?…
It might shock you to hear that nobody has ever developed a complete computational model of a living cell. That's because, despite their diminutive size, their internal processes are extremely complex—but now a team of Stanford engineers has succeeded where others have failed.
Parkinson's is a horrible degenerative disorder of the central nervous system which is sadly incurable. But now a team of scientists from Johns Hopkins has been able to grow the brain cells which are usually destroyed by the disease from skin stem cells—and they're confident it will help them develop new treatments.
It's always funny—if a little gross—when you see a friend launch a spot of spittle across the room as they chat on the phone. But new research suggests that frequent cell phone users actually slobber more, making those discharges all the more common.
Sunburn is painful, dangerous and embarrassing. But despite knowing it's the body's protective immune response to high levels of ultraviolet radiation, scientists weren't exactly sure what the biological process behind it was. Turns out that it's your RNA screaming out in pain—a finding which could help sunburn and…
Some laboratory mice were given specially engineered insuling-producing genes. These genes were then remotely activated using radio waves. This could mean a whole new field of medical procedures in which we turn genes on and off at will.
Most of us have had that horrible experience of opening a phone bill only to find that it's way, way more than expected. Fortunately the FCC has taken pity, and is now working with carriers to instigate a customer alert scheme to warn you about additional charges before they happen.
Bacteria pretty much have nano-sized versions of anything humans can come up with. That list somehow includes knife-wielding street gangs, as some bacteria shoot poison-tipped molecular "daggers" at each other, proving that nothing does awesome violence quite like bacteria.
