Recommended Videos

Margot Robbie loved Harry Potter so much as a youngster that she faked having poor vision in order to get glasses, just like the book’s hero.

  • For the moment, Brian Braddock is Captain Britain. But wouldn’t it be nice if he handed that mantle over to Faiza Hussain? Here’s Comics Alliance on why now’s a good time.
  • Want to hear what it sounds like when a spacecraft enters Jupiter’s magnetic field? It sounds reeealllly creepy.
  • Speaking of space travel, Weezer wrote this pro-USA song in celebration of all NASA’s recent efforts. It’s a pretty corny song, but with July 4th coming up, you may as well add it to your weekend BBQ playlist. (via Rolling Stone)
  • Anna Kendrick wants to play Squirrel Girl?!? HOLLYWOOD: MAKE IT HAPPEN.
  • The Amazon Echo actually lets you order things now. Be careful not to sleep-talk yourself into any expensive mistakes with that thing, okay?
  • Here’s John Boyega, getting the internet all hyped up for Pacific Rim 2!
