MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron team up to take out a bunch of angry dudes in the upcoming film Mad Max: Fury Road. The fourth installment of the epic dystopian series follows the style of its predecessors in what looks to be holy-sh*t-balls-to-the-wall action-packed fun. Set for a May 15, 2015 US release, check out the trailer.

FOR THE WINOS

Trekkies rejoice! Release your inner Klingon with their famed drink of choice–bloodwine–now available on planet Earth. Typically made from fermented blood and sugar and renowned for its highly intoxicating properties, this version has been tailored to suit a much wider audience.

“Klingon Bloodwine is a wine traditionally consumed in celebration and victory. Whether drunk while reveling in triumph or simply enjoying life among friends, this could be the finest vintage of Klingon Bloodwine until 2309. Traditionally twice as strong as whiskey and best served warm, this sanguine version of Bloodwine is more human-friendly at 13% ABV and can be served slightly chilled or at cellar temperature (60-65 F)”.

Get yours here and make Warf proud.

A HEAVY METAL HOLIDAY

Get yourself in the Christmas spirit with the help of Saruman himself, actor Christopher Lee. At 92, Lee has recently released a metal version of the classic Christmas song, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” now retitled “Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing.” Some of Lee’s former releases include “Jingle Hell” and “Silent Night”. Have a listen to Lee one-horse-open-SLAY IT.

CINEMA SPACE TRIBUTE

Check out beautiful footage from 35 of the most visually stunning space movies in this video collage edited by Max Shishkin. The piece combines the soundtrack of Interstellar to the narration of Anthony Hopkins and includes footage from space epics like Gravity, Aliens, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

ORION LAUNCH TOMORROW

NASA’s new space pod Orion is scheduled to fly to orbit on an unmanned test flight tomorrow at 7:05 EST from Cape Canaveral, Florda, and you can watch the action live on NASA TV here. The space capsule is designed to take astronauts deep in to space and will pave the way for future manned missions to Mars. 4.5 hours after its initial launch it will be recovered from the Pacific Ocean, along with an odd array of cargo which includes a Star Trek action figure, a Marvel challenge coin, a dinosaur fossil, and a Muppet….which when combined seem suspiciously like a mad scientist’s idea of a good fun.

STEPHEN COLBERT RESPONDS TO LIGHTSABER ‘CONTROVERSY’

After the release of the “Star Wars: Episode VII” trailer this week, the internet was abuzz with fandom activity and inevitably cybertrolls everywhere crept out of hibernation (from their mom’s basement) to complain about the technical inaccuracy of the trailer’s featured ‘trisaber’. In response, fellow geek Stephen Colbert put his technical wisdom to use to send those trolls back under the rocks from which they belong in this clip from his show.
