  1. These Are Literally The Most Literal Movie Posters We’ve Seen Today

    In the strictest sense.

    I have a liking for literal humor, so these clever movie posters by Danish Ahmed tickled my funny bone (figuratively). To be honest, I kind of want to see his version of The Wolf of Wall Street. It's got potential.

  2. Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains “Everything Wrong With Gravity”

    Problem #1: he's not in it.

    The folks at Cinema Sins may be experts on mistakes in movies, but when it comes to science, they could use a little assistance. So, they got everyone's favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, to help them bring Gravity down to Earth.

  4. Neila Rey’s Nerdy Workouts Make Me Actually Want to Work Out, and That’s Saying Something

    Maybe it's just that for the first time in my life I actually miss having time to work out, but Neila Rey's pop culture themed work outs are really  as physically challenging and logistically easy as one could hope, and for every kind of nerd reference you might care to make. We've posted only a few here, there are lots more at her site.

  5. Superman Ruins Gravity in About 60 Seconds With Some Clever Editing and Gives It a New Ending

    This is pretty much why it's hard to write a non-boring Superman movie.

    Yeah, the plot of Gravity doesn't last that long when a guy who doesn't need to breathe in space and is capable of spontaneous flight shows up. Thanks a lot for ruining everything, Superman. The editing and the jokes in this "alternate scene" are really great, too, and it ties up the whole movie pretty neatly with its... alternate ending.

  6. Gravity Would Be A Lot Shorter If Superman Was Around

    There are a lot of movies that would be substantially shorter if Superman were around. I don't want to spoil anything, but there also might be a lot of new movies that would exist if Superman was around. Previously in Gravity

  7. Cornell University Invented a Bike You Can’t Steer… For Science?

    Congratulations, we guess?

    Meet the "Bricycle" -- a modified bicycle built by Cornell University engineers to test what it would be like to ride a bike in zero gravity. What they found is that although we blame gravity when we fall off a bike, without it, you'd be unable to steer.

  8. Contemplate The Infinite Void With These Unused Gravity Poster Designs

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    Even I, who thinks dying adrift in space would be an outstanding way to go, have to admit that these posters are a bit chilling. You're looking at the artwork of Framestore, the design firm who not only put together Gravity's final poster, but worked on the film's Oscar-winning visual effects as well.

  9. This Video of a Russian Experiment Looks Like Real-Life Gravity

    Don't waste your money on the DVD, the Russian prequel was way scarier.

    In the wake of Gravity's Awards Season success, Sploid has this eerie video to remind us that Astronaut Ryan Stone's horrifying space odyssey essentially happened "for real" back in 2006. Yes, the Russian experiment was all in the name of education, but that doesn't make the footage any less bone-chilling.

    Oh Hollywood

    If you watched the Oscars broadcast, you should know that Ellen DeGeneres wasn't joking: this really was the star-studded selfie tweeted 'round the world, breaking the previous record set by President Obama's re-election victory tweet and becoming the first user to top  one million retweets on a single tweet. For everything else you need to know about the Oscars today in order to have a water cooler conversation about it, and, of course, the winners, read on!
