Give Me This Marvel Cinematic Universe

Wait is it too late to redo the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Cause I am alright with that if we reboot it with this variants cover for the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D comic. Give me a series of movies about these characters! Even a show just dedicated to them with different characters showing up all the time. Melinda May fighting alongside Ms Marvel and Gwen Stacy with spider powers? Where do I sell my organs for that! This would kind of be my dream Marvel Universe.

Around August or so there were rumors that Matthew McConaughey was being considered (and rightly so) to take on the part of the nefarious Randall Flagg in the upcoming big screen version of Stephen King’s The Stand. Today the actor is a bit closer to accepting the role…

That is if this latest news from The Guardian is to be believed. According to the site things are definitely swinging in that direction and we hope that it will. Right now though? Let’s file this one under continued rumor.

Josh Boone’s upcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s 1978 novel The Stand will come to the screen in four parts.

The Stand is a story of good vs. evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. It features dozens of characters (including such memorable ones as the Trashcan Man and Mother Abigail) and overlapping storylines running over many years as it tells of a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg.

This summer, fans of Lois Lowry's "The Giver" saw it come to life on the big screen, with an adaptation starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, Odeya Rush, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. Well, now it's on store shelves, and we've got some prize packs with both the book and movie.

The futuristic tale centers on Jonas, a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver, who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.

To win "The Giver" on Blu-ray plus a...

Computer malware can have a long arms reach, given the right environment. In today’s computing age there are more platforms for malware to crossover and spread, easily latching on to their favorite file hosts.

Recently, we came across some Android apps infected with the VBS file infector Ramnit residing in Google’s Play Store.

ramnit04a

File infectors can be very destructive to a victims PC, typically they search the file system for certain file types to infect.

The Ramnit Trojan searches the Windows file system for .exe, .dll, and .html file types to append their malicious code. Each infected file is able to ensure the infection is persistent and capable of spreading to other systems.

ramnit05a

How does this affect an Android app? Android apps share common files types that are interpreted by other operating systems such as .txt, .html and image files. You can see how the infection could spread via someone’s development environment–which is most likely what happened here.

These particular apps were published by different developers and have infected HTML files that are part of their functionality, like an ‘About’ page.

The infected apps discovered in the Play Store have the following package names:
com.aviatosystems.ugatalk
com.amd.tebaktimnas
com.amd.menggambar
air.ELA4.A0

There were several others found that have been removed or have clean copies in the Play Store.

The compromised apps are not capable of infecting an Android device or leaping from device to PC when the app is run or connected via USB. The only way for this infection to spread is if the infected HTML file is executed in a Windows environment.ramnit

Although there are some steps involved to get this to spread, we feel it is still malicious in nature and could harm customers or third app stores, if shared beyond the Play Store.

If the infected file were to run it would create a file called ‘svchost.exe’ in the Temp directory and execute. The executed file will drop a copy of itself which will begin the infection. This variant of Ramnit has been around for a few years now.

At the time of this articles posting, these apps are still available on the Play Store, however, we have informed Google of their existence.

MachinimaPrime's latest Super Power Beatdown is fun - unlike so many other fan films, they spent the big bucks for great costumes (the Batsuit is Arkham game-based, but has a Batfleck-like cowl), decent effects, voice-acting that sounds about right and a definitive ending that does not cop out.

And indeed, if characters like this actually fought, it would probably be over in five minutes. So it's, like, realistic. Except for the Death Star and space Batwing and, uhhh, the Force and stuff.

big hero 6 end credits

When I interviewed Big Hero 6 directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, I mentioned to them their Marvel adaptation was missing an end credits scene like other Marvel movies. As I walked out the door, Williams stopped me and said, “See it again once the film is in theaters.” Which I did. And lo and behold, Disney Animation held back an awesome end credits scene just for paying audiences — most screenings right up until the release of the film did not have the tag.

The scene not only potentially sets up a sequel, it features a world class voice cameo. We won’t spoil it above the jump, but below, we will do so, and even show you some footage. Learn about the Big Hero 6 end credits scene below.

SPOILERS FOR BIG HERO 6 FOLLOW

So at the end of the credits, Fred (T.J. Miller) walks into his house dejected. He misses his family, who is always away on their special island. His dad bears a striking resemblance to Stan Lee and when he touches the painting showing a family portrait, a secret room opens. Fred walks in —  he can’t believe it, his parents are superheroes! Just then, his father, who looks like and is voiced by Stan Lee, walks in. Fred is stunned and his dad tells them they share the same attitude when it comes to laundry. The pair hug and the scene ends with dad telling Fred they have a lot to talk about.

Pretty awesome right?

Well Mashable has a new featurette featuring Stan Lee talking about his small role in the Big Hero 6 end credits scene which includes some footage.

Big Hero 6 End Credits Scene Revealed

I’d imagine, in the coming weeks, as Disney tries to squeeze an extra few dollars out of the Big Hero 6 box office (which has been solid) we might see this full scene. But, for now, this will have to do.

If you haven’t seen Big Hero 6, do that, it’s a great, heartfelt action film that’s perfect for the holiday weekend.

The nominations for the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards have been announced, and while that would normally be the perfect occasion to make a lot of sarcastic jokes about what constitutes an “independent” movie these days, let’s just take a minute to note the quality (as opposed to the budgets/pedigree) of this year’s selections. Birdman, A Most Violent Year, and Nightcrawler may be heavy on Hollywood talent, but they’re also extremely well-made, relatively adventurous dramas. They’re indie in sensibility, which is more than can be said about some years’ nominees.

Birdman, a film that’s actually about the collision of artistic and commercial pursuits, leads the pack with six nominations. That includes Best Feature, for which it will compete with such excellent alternatives as Boyhood, Whiplash, and Love Is Strange. (Selma is also nominated.) Elsewhere, voters spread the love to other worthy works, including The ...

For 14 harvests has the remote village of CNBC trembled beneath the shadow of the Suze Orman, terrifying fire-drake with limbs like arching tree trunks, and bangs like the folded wings of a fearsome bat. As man has toiled, scrimping and spending wastefully, the Orman has lay coiled atop her mountain of hoarded gold, her belly scaled with sparkling precious jewels and savings bonds, her giant, dazzling teeth bared in a permanent and unsettling smile. Through these clenched jaws has thrummed the sensible financial advice she has dispensed as part of The Suze Orman Show. Long has the ground has quaked with her recommendations for getting out of debt. And still her heaped bed of riches has only grown larger.

But now that shadow has been lifted. Startled by man or beast bearing the mark of a new blood contract, the Suze Orman has left CNBC and taken flight to ...

Downton Abbey recently concluded its fifth season of beautiful costumes, stiff upper lips, and increasingly soapy storytelling, and although the show remains popular, it’s clear that the British period drama could benefit from some new, zeitgeist-grabbing ideas and energy. Enter The Book Of Eli screenwriter Gary Whitta, who posted a short script on his website that brings Downton Abbey together with its natural partner: the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in the form of fast-talking, propriety-ignoring American innovator and Iron Man dad Howard Stark.

Brought to Downton by Lady Cara’s brother Harold, Howard is full of big ideas and no respect for titles or the public hierarchy. He does everything you’d expect a maverick inventor to do in this stolid atmosphere: Scandalize the Dowager Countess, flirt with Lady Mary, and, of course, ignore Lady Edith’s awkward advances, all while trying to pitch Lord Grantham on the dangers of ...

The American version of Thanksgiving is this week, and whether you celebrate the holiday as a gathering of family or a get-together for friends, the day can always be a mixed bag in terms of the quality of people who show up. Sometimes they're family members you're obligated to invite, sometimes they're friends of friends, but somehow there's always someone who makes the day memorable, but not necessarily in a good way. Here are ten characters who might rain on your Thanksgiving Day Parade.
