Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Teases Neon-Soaked Future

Blade Runner first released in 1982, and its influence on cinematic sci-fi storytelling is impossible to deny. After well over three decades without a subsequent entry, the sequel brings back original star Harrison Ford alongside a cavalcade of other acting talent, including Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, and Dave Bautista. 

The latest trailer that released today certainly has the appearance of a worthy follow-up to the classic movie, filled with grim neon-lit streets, desperate people, and striking visual set pieces. 

Blade Runner 2049 is targeting a release in theaters on October 6.

John Oliver Calls Gamers To Action Over Threat To Net Neutrality

John Oliver Calls Gamers To Action Over Threat To Net Neutrality

This week’s episode of Last Week Tonight focused for the second time in the show’s history on a subject that has significant import for gamers – net neutrality. 

For those who haven’t yet wrapped their heads around the idea of net neutrality, it’s the concept that internet service providers (ISPs) should allow access to all content on the internet regardless of the source, and without blocking or offering better connection speeds or other favoritism to specific websites, applications, or online products. Without net neutrality, an internet service provider could limit the bandwidth available to certain services if it so chose.

The FCC recently announced plans to reverse existing net neutrality rules, which has the potential to affect your future internet usage. Supporters of this reversal (including the recently appointed Chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai) believe that current regulation creates uncertainty in the market and limits growth. Those who support existing net neutrality rules have deep concerns about the potential for abuse from ISPs, who could conceivably charge large fees to selected businesses or non-profits for accessing broadband arteries.

Final Wonder Woman Trailer Ups The Adrenaline

DC and Warner Bros. have been trying hard to build out their own cinematic universe of superheroes, but the films in that canon have met with mixed reaction from many fans and critics. The upcoming Wonder Woman flick is hoping to change that perception to a more positive one when it releases on June 2. 

The latest and final full trailer for the movie moves away from the teases and humorous moments that mostly defined earlier glimpses, instead opting for a sequence of action and fight scenes that show off Wonder Woman’s fighting prowess, juxtaposed with a deeper understanding of the childhood and training that turned her into a warrior. While several scenes from earlier trailers show up, we also get a look at several new ones. 

Check out the full trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Famous Painter Bob Ross Comes To Smite As Character Skin

Bob Ross was a famous artist with a voice who spent a lot of time teaching us how to paint on his television series The Joy Of Painting. Ross' soothing voice and gentle demeanor have resulted in him becoming something of an internet legend over the past few years. Here's an episode of the show if you've never watched one:
