The first Man From UNCLE trailer shows Guy Ritchie’s stylish take on a ’60s spy classic

The original Man From UNCLE ran between 1964 and 1968, and told the story of two spies — one American, and one Russian — working together in a Cold War world. Guy Ritchie’s movie re-imagining, scheduled to see release this August, keeps the same characters and the same setting, but updates the atmosphere to give the decade a modern sheen. The first trailer for the movie, released today, shows a stylish swinging sixties in which spies Napoleon Solo — played by Superman actor Henry Cavill — and Ilya Kuryakin, played by The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer, snark at each other as they split time between glitzy outdoor parties and speedboat chases.

Incredible video shows how Space X plans to land largest rocket in the world

You know what’s cooler than a gigantic rocket? A gigantic rocket that can land itself. Elon Musk’s Space X released a new video this week demonstrating just what it plans to do with its upcoming Falcon Heavy rocket, which is set to launch for the first time later this year.

In essence, the rocket is three of the company’s current Falcon 9 rockets strapped together. The result is a rocket that can carry over 115,000 pounds (53,000 kg) — the equivalent of a fully-loaded Boeing 737 passenger jet — to low-earth orbit. When it flies later this year, the Falcon Heavy will be the world’s most powerful rocket. Only the Saturn V rocket, which was retired in 1973 after sending Apollo missions to the moon, was more powerful.

Powerful enough to…

Doctor Who and other BBC shows are vanishing from Prime in Amazon’s fight for exclusivity

Amazon’s streaming war with Netflix is about to claim a new victim: Doctor Who. The Verge has learned that the program, along with the majority of BBC programming, will be vanishing from Prime Instant Video starting February 15th. According to sources familiar with the matter, the issue is exclusivity. Amazon’s licensing deal with the BBC allows other subscription services like Netflix to carry the same shows at the same time. That doesn’t align with Amazon’s current strategic goals, so we’ve learned the company is choosing to not renew the agreement.

It’s a bit of hardball that could frustrate Amazon’s customers in the short term, but demonstrates just how serious the company is about Prime. Amazon has been on a tear over the past two…

These 65 movies and TV shows are disappearing from Netflix on New Year’s Day

Hopefully your New Year’s resolution isn’t to binge watch all five Rocky films, because Netflix won’t be able to help you out. As usual, the beginning of a new month marks the disappearance of a lot of old films from the streaming service, and Vulture has printed a long list of which will be going away. Its list of disappearances seems to come from Netflix itself, though it looks like Netflix may be singling out some of the biggest names rather than making a comprehensive list of everything that’s going to disappear. For instance, the What’s On Netflix Now? blog points out that basically every Woody Allen film (aside from Annie Hall) is going away as of January 1st, though only one appears on Netflix’s list.

The full list of films…

New Final Fantasy XV trailer shows off more crazy and weird road trip action

We’ve got to be honest: we don’t really know much about the plot of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, but we’re irresistibly drawn to the idea of a road trip movie in a fantasy world. There’s just nothing like pulling to the side of the road and piling out of the car to beat down a crew of dudes in armor and some massive land mammals. And as for the story, it is coming together a bit: the latest trailer for the upcoming RPG just came out of the Jump Festa 2015 Japanese convention, and it does fill in a few more gaps. And no, there’s still no word on when this game will ship.

Delaying worldwide releases can kill song sales, Spotify data shows

A new study by Spotify shows that “windowing” — the practice of delaying the launch of albums and songs in certain formats or locations — can be detrimental to an artist’s success. Spotify analysts scrutinized the success of Meghan Trainor’s pop hit “All About That Bass” in two markets — in the United States, where the song appeared in stores, on streaming services, and on the radio at the same time, and the United Kingdom, where the song only went on sale a month and a half after it first appeared on Spotify UK.
