Dr. George Church is a real-life Dr. Frankenstein. The inventor of CRISPR and one of the minds behind the Human Genome Project is no longer content just reading and editing DNA—now he wants to make new life. In Ben Mezrich’s latest book, Wooly: The True Story of the Quest to Revive One of History’s Most Iconic Extinct…
The most believable part of The Circle, which opens in theaters Friday, is the tech. Sadly, the film’s arguments surrounding privacy, which are integral to the movie’s plot, are a muddled mess, portrayed in ways that lack nuance and understanding of the world its audience is already living in.
The new trailer for The Circle just dropped, and boy, the kings of Silicon Valley are not going to be pleased.
Last week, Saturday Night Live introduced the world to yet another piece of deeply mediocre comedy that the world wide web has desperately tried to make into this year’s hottest Halloween meme. His name is David S. Pumpkins and he is portrayed by legendary actor and Polar Express star Tom Hanks.

According to IMDB, Tom Hanks has acted in 81 movies in a career that started way back in 1980. Bill Murray has 83 acting credits dating back to 1973. That’s over 35 years in “the industry” together, and yet they’ve never appeared on screen together in the same movie. Hmm. Seems suspicious, right? Could it be because…

When any adaptation of an acclaimed Dave Eggers novel makes it to the big screen, people take notice. When you cast Tom Hanks as one of the leads, people get interested. Then you add Emma Watson to it and people get thrilled.
Spies are everywhere in pop culture right now, including tons of spy movies and TV shows. So why are we so obsessed with secret-agent madness? Is it nostalgia, or a reflection of new, real-life preoccupations? Here are all the reasons why 2015 is the year of the spy.
The next Da Vinci Code sequel will start filming in April, 2015, Deadline reports. We have Tom Hanks returning to star as Robert Langdon and Ron Howard back to direct. Weirdly, the studio's decided to skip one of Dan Brown's novels and adapt Inferno instead of The Lost Symbol. Is this a Freemason conspiracy?!…
This trailer for Saving Mr. Banks is priceless — it's a film about the making of Disney's Mary Poppins movie, with Tom Hanks inhabiting Walt Disney's eagerness to make the picture and Emma Thompson as author P.L. Travers, who absolutely does not want her wonderful book besmirched.
Behold the first ever (spoiler-filled) clip from Cloud Atlas. This two-minute clip wraps up six different plot lines all into one, and it also shows a very spoilery end to one of the characters, so be warned. Will the Wachowskis be able to pull off this massive balancing act?
Cloud Atlas made its big debut at the Toronto International Film Festival to a rousing chorus of "Hell yes!" and "What the hell was that?"
You've seen the trailer for Cloud Atlas, but did you spot all the many faces of Tom Hanks? As David Mitchell's novel jumps from century to century, so do the actors playing various characters throughout time. Especially Tom Hanks.

The first footage is out from Tom Hanks' animated web series, Electric City — set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, where only the rich can afford communication.
