Star Wars Locations Header

How do you create a place that doesn’t exist? That was the challenge by George Lucas, JJ Abrams, and company in filming the Star Wars saga. Several filming locations were filmed and set pieces were built to create the atmosphere of planets in a far away galaxy. The deserts of Tatooine can be found in both Tunisia and the US, the ice planet of Hoth was actually a glacier in Norway, and even the resistance air base on D’Qar is a real air force base found in the UK. Star Wars filming locations can found all over the map, and most can even be visited.

The Man of Steel and the Dark Knight already duked it out earlier this year in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman. In August, Suicide Squad aims to up the ante by forcing a whole bunch of supervillains to work together on a team and sending them on black ops missions for the government. (What could possibly go awry with that plan?) All that superhero movie action got the old brain-juices flowing about films based on the DC comic book universe. It seems like there have been a million Batman movies since Adam West first donned the costume and Superman sure hasn't been shy about showing up on the silver screen. Do you remember that time that Shaq was a superhero? How many movies has DC done anyways? Well, ponder no further! This handy infographic lists every theatrically release full-length film that DC has ever made.

Harry Potter Wands

J.K. Rowling wasn’t the first author to write about witches and wizards and their magic wands. But her attention to detail in describing each wand individually helped to make the “wizarding world” come alive for readers like us. (And, we’re assuming, you!) In the Harry Potter fictional universe, every wand is somewhat sentient and therefore unique. This is because wandmakers craft the wands using different woods, with different lengths, and with different materials in their core. To celebrate Harry’s upcoming birthday (his 36th!) and the release of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script book, we bring you this infographic on the most important wands in the Harry Potter franchise!

The Alien Evolution Infographic

Watching the movies in the Alien franchise, it’s easy to forget that the titular monster is actually a man in a suit. The slick, onyx-colored skin of the Xenomorph, the spindly, whip-like limbs, the dome-shaped head—these features seem so inhuman that it’s hard to imagine the creature being anything but another species from an unknown planet. However, this creature was man-made, dreamt up in industrial nightmare by artist H.R. Giger. Over the course of the main four films in the series, Giger and fellow designers tweaked and modified the Xenomorph, evolving the creature little-by-little. This infographic shows you the changes made in each film, from its original appearance in 1979 through Alien: Resurrection in 1997.

Summer of 2016 is bringing us a reboot of the popular Ghostbusters franchise, marking a 27-year gap between films. Since Ghostbusters became a cultural phenomenon in the 80s, talks of a third movie had been in the works shortly after the release of Ghostbusters II in the 90s. Dan Aykroyd, the driving force behind the franchise, initially pitched a third installment, but the studio had turned it down due to it's outrageous $150 million budget. For perspective, the 2016 release Ghostbusters has reported to have a budget of $154 million, so the budget for Aykroyd's movie adjusted for inflation would be around $275 million today! Throughout most of the past decade, Ghostbusters III had been in various forms of development with scripts being drafted and Aykroyd continually providing updates on the progress. However, the movie was ultimately scrapped in favor of the upcoming...

Pokemon GO Costume Ideas for Halloween

Pokémon GO hit the US Android and Apple app stores last week and, well, if you’ve seen an influx of people walking the sidewalks with their phones in front of them, that’s why. This new AR game turns regular smart phone users into real life Pokémon trainers – you can walk down the street by your house and catch a cute Pidgey hanging out by the mailbox or you can go to the local park in your neighborhood and defend your territory at the gym, battling your Pokémon against others in the area. There are some crazy stats about the app, too – as of the 8th, people were playing Pokémon GO more than they were using Instagram or Snapchat! (Also, the app added over $7 billion to Nintendo’s market value in just two days. Yikes!) While you’re catching ‘em all, you have to look the part. We know that the video game series will be as popular as ever this Halloween, so here are some Pokémon costumes to get you ready for October....
