superman-drone

In this awesome video, redditor FizzyGizmo duct-taped a Superman action figure to his Phantom 3 drone and flew it over Victoria Park in London. The camera on the drone is attached to a gimbal which stabilizes the footage so it looks like Superman is smoothly flying around, keeping an eye on the city. Well done.

Check out the video after the break.

civilwar

I don’t know if Jeremy Renner has gone rogue or if Marvel okayed it, but he’s been having a delightful time showing off new concept art for Captain America: Civil War that finally reveal where loyalties lie.

If you’re avoiding spoilers, you don’t want to take a look at the tweets after the break.

mythbusters

There are two things you can count on in life: fans will always have questions after a beloved series ends, and Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage will always be happy answer those questions by blowing things up.

Indeed, the Mythbusters tested whether or not Walter White could have, a) built the automotive booby trap in the “Breaking Bad” finale and b) if it would have actually worked.

Having watched the episode, I can tell you that they do a lot of testing and there’s a lot of trial and error. Plus, Vince Gilligan is there to help them determine if the myth is confirmed or busted.

Oh, and a lot of things go boom.

If you’re not worried about spoilers and you want to see how it turned out, you can watch a short recap of the episode after the break.

stargate

Post updated to credit the Stargate creator/groom:

Ian Milward spent weeks building a Stargate for his wedding and I think it was absolutely worth it. This amazing ring is measures 12-feet in diameter and is unbelievably detailed with constellations and LEDs. And there’s a pretty cool story behind it as well:

“They first met working at the same lumber and hardware store, and connected because of a mutual love of Stargate. About a year into their relationship, they were watching the episode where Jack and Sam get married in front of a gate, and she said that would be pretty awesome, so six years later he remembered that and did it.”

Check out more images (especially the impressive nighttime view) of the Stargate after the break.

galaxy quest

Earlier this year it was revealed that Paramount was shopping a tv series based on the cult classic film Galaxy Quest. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now know that the show has found a home on Amazon.

Not much is known about what direction the show will go in, or if an attempt will be made to bring back members of the original cast. However, the creative team remains the same. The film’s co-writer Robert Gordon will write the pilot. Director Dean Parisot will be back and both will executive produce. Executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein will be involved as well.

Personally, I’m pumped about this show. But replacing the big names in that awesome cast would be difficult. Would the irreplaceable Alan Rickman do this? I doubt it, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed anyway.

fassbender creed
