The whole Hail Hydra meme has been around for awhile, but thanks to Captain America: The Winter Soldier it’s getting a whole new life. If you haven’t seen the movie, not only will this not be quite as funny, but what is wrong with you? Go see it and then come right back over here and check out all these images because once you get it, they’re ridiculously funny. Hail Hydra!

It’s been ten years since Shaun of the Dead first hit theaters in the UK and to celebrate, filmmaker Edgar Wright has posted the film’s script along with those for Hot Fuzz and At World’s End on his official website for download. He calls them the “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy” after the Cornetto ice cream cone that makes an appearance in each film. The scripts include storyboards, graphics, and movie stills so they’re just the thing to make fans happy.

Simon Pegg also tweeted about celebrating the anniversary, and how ten years ago he and Wright snuck into the theater to watch the film when it was first released. He was quick to point out that they did actually pay for the tickets in the end, so, you know, don’t be breaking the law on his account.

George R.R. Martin didn’t just create a story and characters, but an entire world that he has carefully documented with detailed maps and histories. Every mountain, river, and plain is painstakingly recorded in those maps and now scientist Miles Traer has defined the geology to match.

In Generation Anthropocene, Traer has created a geologic history that shows not just where everything is, but how things like the Red Mountains and the Hills of Norvos were formed. He worked with Mike Osborne and Hari Mix to combine observations about places, characters, and events in the stories with principles of geology that apply to the real world. It’s a little of our world and a little of Westeros combined into one extraordinary study.

This commercial from Jaguar is the second in a series featuring British villains that started with a Super Bowl ad. That one featured Ben Kingsley, Mark Strong, and Tom Hiddleston and now Hiddleston is back for his very own ad. He looks suave, talks about bespoke suits and the importance of eloquence, and quotes Shakespeare. I think we’ll all pretty much buy whatever it is he’s selling.

The theme music to Game of Thrones is one of the most recognizable on television so, naturally, it’s been given all sorts of covers. There’s a cover on bells, a ska cover, and now we have this smooth jazz cover. Listen as Postmodern Jukebox and Grammy-nominated saxophone player David Koz bring you the most relaxing version yet.

Nathan Fillion proved himself a giant tease when he hinted at a possible appearance in the upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy movie during a panel at St. Louis Comic Con. He was asked by a fan if he had wanted a role in the film and answered:

“Want to get a part? Or maybe did. I’m just saying maybe. Maybe it’ll be a surprise. Maybe check the credits of the movie when you watch it.”

Fillion has worked with director James Gunn before so teaming up again seems very possible. On the other hand, Marvel is very strict about keeping things secret and it doesn’t seem likely that Fillion would spill the beans on something that could have the Marvel folks seeing red.

Looks like we’ll have to wait until the film opens on August 1st. Pay very close attention to the credits at the end and keep your fingers crossed that Captain Malcolm Reynolds shows up.

See the video after the break and hear Fillion’s answer at the 38:22 mark…

These beautiful area rugs feature actual photos of the nebulas in the small and large Magellanic Clouds as photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope. Each of the designs is made with 1,620,000 dots per square meter, which works out to over a thousand dots per square inch. This makes the resolution of the rugs darn close to the maximum resolution that the Hubble can capture. There are three different designs you can choose from with each rug measuring about 7′ x 5′. Delivery time is six weeks.

Time travel adds all sorts of complexity to movies that can make it hard to keep track of what’s happening. So how well have you kept track of what happens in all the time travel movies? This graph by artist and animator Dan Meth is just one of 12 that he has made to test your knowledge. Some of them are fairly easy but others will take you some “time” to figure out.
