Aereo continues its rollout, coming to Atlanta on June 17

Aereo, the over-the-air streaming service, continues to march forward with its roll out, despite legal challenges by CBS and FOX. So far Aereo has won the legal challenges, but that doesn't make them easy--or cheap. It doesn't seem to be stopping Aereo, however, as they have announced they will be rolling out in Atlanta on June 17.

Aereo originally launched in New York City, where it was challenged by CBS and FOX over its legality. Recently, Aereo expanded to Boston, after filing a complaint with the court to stop future CBS legal challenges. The new Atlanta service will provide a total of 27 over-the-air channels to 55 counties in Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina.

 

Aereo is aiming to enter a total of 22 markets by the end of this year. It remains to be seen if the legal challenges will slow the roll out down.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer arrives, the Marvel universe enters the TV realm

The Avengers impressed critics, fans and the box office - making more than $1 billion worldwide. How do you begin to even follow that up on TV? Well, for one you keep The Avengers' director, and huge TV veteran, Joss Whedon involved.

 

 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes place in the Marvel universe of course, and takes place after the events of The Avengers. Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, is back, even though he was killed (or was he?) in The Avengers. I'm sure there'll be a great explanation for Coulson's return, with all of the technology at play in the Marvel universe, I'm sure they could bring him back easily.

John Carpenter 'would love to make' a Dead Space movie

Dead Space is one of the best survival horror games out there, and now it looks like we might actually see a movie based on the game. The director of horrors such as Halloween and The Thing, John Carpenter, has recently expressed interest in making a Dead Space movie.

Carpenter said during an interview with GameInformer: "I would love to make Dead Space [into a film]. I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made. I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something's on board. It's just great stuff".

 

When Dead Space 3 launched earlier this year, Carpenter took to Twitter, tweeting "Dead Space 3 is the first great game of 2013". Carpenter got into games thanks to his son, where he explains: "My son got me involved in games when he was growing up. He and I spent time together playing. He got me hooked on it".

Official teaser trailer to Gravity released

I am sure there's a lot of you who have seen the great Children of Men, directed by Alfonso Cuarón, and now the acclaimed director is back with yet another epic movie, Gravity.

 

 

Gravity stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, as two astronauts who go into space but are detached from their ship, after which they're forced to survive on their own in the dark beyond. There's some truly epic camera work done by Cuarón, something he is known for, and by the looks of things we're in for an utter treat with Gravity.

Netflix ups marketing push for Arrested Development, takes the Bluth's banana stand on tour

I'll openly admit I am an Arrested Development fan. And it looks like Netflix is trying to remind all of us, and maybe even pick up a few new ones, that Arrested Development will be returning come May 26. Ahead of the return, Netflix is taking the Bluth's banana stand on tour; first in the UK, then on to the United States.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30279_1_netflix_ups_marketing_push_for_arrested_development_takes_the_bluth_s_banana_stand_on_tour.jpg

 

The festivities kicked off yesterday in the UK. The banana stand will eventually make its way to London, Los Angeles, and New Your City. The banana stand will move to the United States after May 21 and the specific location will be announced by the Arrested Development Twitter account.

 

As a further marketing push, Netflix has promised surprise appearances by the Bluth family. If you happen to be by the banana stand, check it out and send us your pictures!

'The Matrix Retold by Mom' is a hilarious look at the classic sci-fi movie

I stumbled across this gem on Reddit earlier today, where 'pixelspersecond' introduced his mom to The Matrix, you know, that little sci-fi movie from the 90s that we all know and love? Check it out below.

 

 

It's quite funny to hear someone who has never watched it, explain the movie, because if you had to explain it to someone, it does sound pretty far-fetched. It makes me want to watch the movie again, or introduce it to my sister-in-law who has never watched it. I almost banned her from my life when I found that out.

New Pacific Rim trailer has never made 288 feet high robots fighting aliens look so good

The latest footage of the epic science fiction movie directed by Guillermo del Toro is here, with Pacific Rim never looking better. If you don't know what Pacific Rim is yet, you might want to watch the trailer below. If you do know what it is, you probably haven't read any of this and clicked the trailer anyway.

 

 

Thoughts? That trailer should have most people convinced, I tried throwing money at my screen but nothing happened. Instead of the shakey cam Micheal Bay movies we received with Transformers, and as much as I loved them as fun summer movies, this looks like we're actually going to see 288 feet high robots kicking some alien ass.

US ambassador to Australia asks Australians to stop pirating Game of Thrones

US ambassador to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich, has reached out to his official Facebook page telling Australians to stop pirating popular HBO show, Game of Thrones. He wrote:

 

TweakTown image news/2/9/29974_03_us_ambassador_to_australia_asks_australians_to_stop_pirating_game_of_thrones.jpg

 

As the ambassador here in Australia, it was especially troubling to find out that Australian fans were some of the worst offenders with among the highest piracy rates of Game of Thrones in the world.

 

The comments came on April 23, marking the 17th annual UN World Book and Copyright Day. He added:

 

I realise that fans of Game of Thrones who have used illegal file-sharing sites have reasons. They will say it was much easier to access through these sites, or that they got frustrated by the delay in the first season, or their parents wouldn't pay for a subscription, or they will complain about some other issue with copyright laws. But none of those reasons is an excuse - stealing is stealing.
