Marvel sure hopes it’s found the director for its upcoming Ant-Man film. The studio announced today that Peyton Reed (Yes Man) will take the position from Edgar Wright, who left the project last month. The studio is rushing to get the film completed in time for its planned release on July 17th, 2015. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are already on board, but plans were thrown in the air after Wright abruptly split from Marvel citing “differences in their vision of the film.” Wright’s departure came relatively...

If you were worried that legendary game developer Sid Meier wouldn’t get his chance to make a new Alpha Centauri, it’s time to put those fears to bed. Civilization: Beyond Earth is coming this fall, and, as the name suggests, it takes the venerable PC strategy series to the stars. As Rock, Paper, Shotgun tells it, publisher Electronic Arts still holds the rights to the Alpha Centauri name (which was a Civ spin-off to start), so this is developer Firaxis’ effort at a sequel, sans the actual title. The trailer below doesn’t...

Colbert will be leaving his right-wing persona behind along with his Comedy Central show. As “Stephen Colbert,” the comedian has made endless fun of the right while pretending to be an idiotic member of that group. It’s a tricky line to walk, but Colbert has done it seemingly effortlessly, staying in character when interviewing his nightly guests. It’s a very different format from the typical late-night show, which is focused around a few bits, some high-profile guests and maybe a musical act. While Jimmy Fallon’s success at The...

With the release of Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” it appears the portrayal of outer space in science fiction is about to take another huge leap forward. From all accounts so far, the special effects and visions of outer space in the movie are being hailed as second-to-none. Every few years — and sometimes every couple of months — a movie comes along that pushes the boundaries of what we believe is possible on screen. Ever since the first science fiction films hit the screen in the 1920s audiences have been wowed by...

Credit: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2/Warner Home Video As a follow-up to AsapSCIENCE’s YouTube video on superhuman strength from earlier this week, Vsauce3 asks, “What if Superman punched you?” So, it’s you and Superman mano-a-mano. How would you fare? Not so well, it seems. Superman burns about 45 trillion calories with a single punch — that’s equivalent to eating nearly 82 billionMcDonald’s Big Macs. That’s a lot of energy to go up against. Thankfully, nobody ever has to worry...

Driessen Post | June 06, 2013 As E3 week draws ever closer, we’re starting to get into the thick of trailers and reveals. Ubisoft, after snagging the rights from the failing THQ, is proudly making South Park: The Stick of Truth a focal point of their E3 offerings. And who can blame them? This South Park game, straight from the folks at Obsidian Entertainment, looks like it was genuinely and truly inspired by the television show. So good, in fact, that it almost erases the awful memory of that South Park game we got on the Nintendo...

Driessen Post | May 31, 2013 Take a long look at what you are seeing here. This is a World War II game! Game developers finally caught onto the idea that glorifying the most destructive conflict in human history isn’t such a good idea, turning to modern day violence instead. One studio is still kicking and screaming in the past, though. Relic Entertainment at least has the spine to back it up. Company of Heroes 2 is the follow up to one of the most critically acclaimed RTS games in history, so there is not much need to change the setting....
