The Ferrari F50 Was The Last F1-Engined Road Car

The Ferrari F50 is often remembered as a flop: it was slower than the car it replaced and for years its styling was absolutely reviled. I think the problem was that the thing was built 60 years too late, and it's all because of that engine.

How can you tell an alien from a human? RACISM, DUH! Oh Key & Peele, you funny lads — we marvel at your ability to skewer big societal conversation points with goofy humor. And in this sketch from the upcoming fourth season of the series, we’re served more of the same.

Because it’s actually sort of brilliant when you think about it: racism is at times insidious and disguises itself as something that it’s typically not (like, say, a very welcoming and accepting redneck person). In a clip that has the look and feel of a high-octane exposition scene from a McG film (where are Charlie’s Angels when you need ‘em, eh?), Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are shown on the hunt for survival in a dystopian future run amuck with creatures not of this world. Their task? Picking off said incognito aliens with their impressive deductive reasoning skills.

Old man afraid they’re stealing money? Not an alien. Middle-aged, well to do white guy who’s totally down with one of the guys dating their daughter? Alien. A black guy who has stronger opinions on Police the band than the police themselves? Yup: totally an alien. Sorry, Emily — of course your name is Emily, by the way — these are things you learn through experiencing, not something that can be taught in a class.

Are you ready for more hilarious commentary from Key & Peele? What’s your favorite sketch? Let us know in the comments below.

If you haven’t seen the show before, that’s fine, this is a new setting, story, and cast of characters. Ryan Murphy’s series this time around focuses on the carnies of a traveling freak show in 1952 Florida. I suspect there will be a lot of...

New cast members includes Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch, Finn Wittrock, Matt Bomer, Patti LaBelle and the world’s smallest living woman, Jyoti Amge.

One of the only surviving sideshows in the country struggles to stay in business during the dawning era of television.

Yep, that looks like a modern redesign, all right. I don't think the square eyepatch makes a lot of sense, but then nor does a talking mouse who's a spy. The new DM will have an initial run of 52 episodes, and be broadcast on CBBC in the UK. No word on a US date yet.

He'll be voiced by UK TV host Alexander Armstrong, and if you want to know what he sounds like, well, keep reading...

If this movie doesn't suck, we probably have whoever leaked the test footage to thank for it. The movie is now set to open on February 12th, right before Valentine's Day, in 2016. Visual effects animator Tim Miller will direct; Ryan Reynolds is not officially confirmed but it's pretty clear he still wants to do it if they'll have him.

Rob Liefeld may be looking for suggestions as to what to Tweet about from here on out.

A Baby in Brazil Now Has Three Legal Parents

A judge this week granted two women and a man the right to claim legal parent status of a baby born in late August. All three parents have their name on the baby's birth certificate, thus laying claim to being the family in the world with three legally-recognized parents. But maybe they're not the last.

Why Extant Was Such An Insult To Our Intelligence

Well, it's over. The first (and hopefully only) season of Extant has come to an end. And yes, the idea that Halle Berry's character became pregnant on a solo mission in space wasn't the most promising premise, but did the show have to turn out to be such a turkey?

WRATH OF THE TITANS

Timur Bekmambetov‘s Ben-Hur is moving along at chariot-race speed. Earlier this week we learned Jack Huston had been cast in the title role, and now comes news Toby Kebbell is about to join him as Ben-Hur’s BFF-turned-nemesis Messala. Morgan Freeman also boarded the cast last week.

Hit the jump for all the details on the Ben-Hur Toby Kebbell casting.

Variety reports Kebbell is in early talks for the role. The character was played by Stephen Boyd in the 1959 movie. Like that film and the 1925 silent film before it, Bekmambetov’s Ben-Hur is based on Lew Wallace‘s 1880 novel. Keith Clarke (The Way Back) wrote the script, and John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) did a rewrite.

The new movie aims to be a more faithful adaptation of the source material. It’ll place greater emphasis on the complicated relationship between Jewish prince Judah Ben-Hur and his childhood friend Messala. They’re separated as adults when Messala goes off to school, and when he returns his attitude toward his old pal has changed.

Messala betrays Ben-Hur, and the latter is sold off as a slave while his family is sent to prison. Ben-Hur vows to get his revenge on Messala. As previously reported, Freeman is playing Ildarin, the sheik who turns Ben-Hur into a top-level chariot racer. The updated Ben-Hur will also give greater prominence to a subplot about Jesus Christ.

Kebbell hasn’t exclusively played bad-guy roles, but he seems to be on an sinister streak right now. He was Koba in this summer’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and recently wrapped his villainous role as Doctor Doom in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. He also has appearances coming up in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft and J.A. Bayona’s A Monster Calls, but it’s not clear if he’ll be evil in those.

Ben-Hur lands in theaters February 26, 2016. Shooting begins early next year in Europe.

Deadpool movie coming winter 2016

Deadpool video game

Breathecast was one of the first to report that the live-action Deadpool movie, a spin-off of the X-Men films, will be coming to theaters very soon. The Hollywood Reporter reconfirms that we’ll be seeing the film in winter 2016.

Fox announced that the film will be coming out on February 12, 2016. Tim Miller is set to direct, making this his directorial debut. (He has worked on the visual effects for the X-Men films.)

The leaked test footage for Deadpool really had an impact on the status of the movie. Once it was released, it received positive responses, with people saying that it captured the personality of Deadpool. Now it looks like that leak may have convinced Fox to push the film forward.

Nothing is yet confirmed whether Ryan Reynolds will return to play the Merc with a Mouth, but he had something to say about how the leak was a good thing.

“The movie has been in a state of limbo for a while. There was such an overpowering reaction to the footage, you sort of feel like, ‘Oh, so we weren’t crazy for our reasons for loving this character, for loving this role.’ It’s interesting to see the power of the Internet. It’s awe-inspiring, actually,” Reynolds told the Niagara Falls Review. “And it’s neat that Twitter and Facebook and Instagram can move mountains when used in the right way.”

Tim Miller is a visual effects artist. Should this have fans panicking? An effects artist directing a comic book movie isn’t a new thing. We’ve seen this with Mark A.Z. Dippé with the live-action Spawn film. Okay, so maybe that’s a bad example. We also have effects artist Joe Johnston who directed Captain America: The First Avengers and The Rocketeer. So there may be hope for the Deadpool film.

Are you excited about this news? Are you okay with Fox handling the mutant hero? Let us know on the comment section below.
