Burning Steel Wool Becomes A Raging Firestorm Through A Camera's Close-Up Macro Lens 

Video: Peering at the world through a close-up macro lens reveals tiny details that normally go unnoticed. It can also make the smallest of things appear completely grandiose. Steel wool and a battery makes for an easy way to start a fire, but zoom in as it burns and it looks like the entire world has become engulfed in a raging firestorm.


Forest Whitaker Goes From Rogue One To Black Panther 

Forest Whitaker is having a good late 2016. He’s soon to appear in one of the best films of the year, Arrival, and he’ll follow that by playing Saw Gerrera in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now, in addition to that, he’s just been cast in Marvel’s Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler.

The Trailer For Underworld: Blood Wars Is Sure To Make Underworld Fans Happy 

Video: I have to admit, I’m not really up on the Underworld series. I know the basic gist, vampires versus werewolves, but five movies in, I couldn’t tell you if that’s still the focus. It certainly seems like it is in the new trailer for the fifth film, Underworld: Blood Wars.

Lady Gaga fans have reportedly “tricked” their Amazon Echos into playing samples of Lady Gaga’s latest album Joanne, according to videos posted online. It’s unclear if the leak was a bug or a marketing gimmick. Either way, the trick no longer works.

The Trailer For Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Is Pretty Fun 

Video: The trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter starts with Alice (Milla Jovovich) battling what looks like a dragon. Watching it, I thought, “Well, that’s pretty cool.” But that was just the beginning of a great trailer for the sixth and final film in the franchise.

The Best Moment Of Arrow's Return Was Also Its Goofiest 

For the past few seasons, Arrow‘s been a bit crazy, featuring supernatural threats, magical villains and crossover shenanigans.
