Fire Tablet users will be able to use previously installed apps from the program, but access to the...

Logans black-and-white cut is coming to theaters on May 16th



If you really liked James Mangolds Logan, but wanted to watch it in monochrome, youre in luck. The director announced on Twitter that the film would be getting a special black-and-white theatrical run on May 16th.

Mangold announced last month that he was working on a black and white cut, and told fans today that it would be coming to Blu-ray and DVD. He also confirmed that moviegoers will be able to see the film on the big screen one more time, but only in US theaters.

Mangold explained that this version is more than just changing the settings on your screen: the entire film had to be regraded...

Tesla reactivated its automatic braking system after losing top Consumer Reports score



Earlier this week, Consumer Reports lowered its ratings for Teslas Model S and Model X vehicles, because the company had yet to enable an automatic emergency braking safety feature, six months after it was announced. Following the rating downgrade, Tesla began rolling out the feature to its vehicles, but only at speeds of up to 28 miles per hour.

The magazine published its report on Wednesday, and deducted points from the two models because Tesla hadnt activated the system. Tesla announced a suite of updates back in October, including the automatic emergency braking system, but noted at the time that its wouldnt be activated until they were robustly validated.

New trailers: Marvel's Cloak Dagger Kingsmans sequel and more



Looking for something to watch the other week, I took my colleague's suggestion and checked out Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, the first film from La La Land director Damien Chazelle. It's a scrappy, black-and-white, super-low-budget musical with the same interest in jazz but none of the production value.

I love getting to watch directors' earliest features and seeing just how far they've come. Moonlight director Barry Jenkins also started with a black-and-white, low-budget feature Medicine for Melancholy just a year before Chazelle did. Likewise, it's filled with the same kind of silences and simple, powerful moments as his latest, but it's a world apart terms of how well the pieces come together. (Though Roger Ebert was a big...

Turkey blocked access to Wikipedia after it refused to remove content



Turkey blocked access to Wikipedia on Saturday, according to Reuters, using a law designed to grant authorities the ability restrict content the country considers obscene or a threat to national security.

Access to the online encyclopedia appears to have been blocked at 8:00AM local time on Saturday morning, according to monitoring group Turkey Blocks, a project to identify and validate reports of internet mass-censorship in Turkey. It explained that the loss is consistent with internet filters used to censor content in the country.

The country used an administrative order to block access to the website, based on Law No. 5651, which grants the government broad...

Ray Bradburys hometown is crowdfunding a statue in his honor



In 1920, Fahrenheit 451 author Ray Bradbury was born in the the Chicago suburb of Waukegan, Illinois. While he spent his early years there, he and his family eventually moved to California, where he spent the rest of his life. Now, his hometown is looking to honor the author with a statue, and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance the project.

Last fall, the Ray Bradbury Statue Committee selected a design by contemporary sculptor Zachary Oxman, whose work has been exhibited in places such as the White House, and the National Museum of American Art. According to The Chicago Tribune, his statue concept stood out because it paid homage to Bradbury's imagination, featuring the author holding a book aloft as he rides on a rocket....

Vizios new TVs dont do apps the way youd expect



When Vizio unveiled its new 2017 P-Series and actually-new 2017 M-Series TVs on Tuesday, it seemed as though the company was making a quick return to the old smart TV approach of preloading apps like Hulu, Vudu, and others onto the sets. Last year, no apps were included on Vizios TVs out of the box; instead, they were designed as great looking displays that hooked into Google Chromecast, allowing owners to stream content from hundreds of apps using their own smartphone. But despite Vizio going so far as to bundle an Android tablet in the box, this concept likely confused some consumers.

So it is true that Vizio is making a change this year. A select few apps will come included out of the box to make things more convenient for people...
