15 Actors You Totally Forgot Were In DC Comic Book Movies

Posted on 9:05 am

HBO/Warner Bros. If anyone suggests that DC movies are the lesser of two competitors in the great two horsed comic book movie race, you ought to point out to them that such binary reductions are stupid. You should also point out that the calibre of actors who sign on to DC films – including Oscar winners like Jared Leto, Ben Affleck and Will Smith even after the supposed “decline” – suggests that the brand still has incredible sway among actors. Over the years, that has clearly always been the case. We’ve seen major Hollywood players drop into the Nolan universe for cameos as well as theatrical veterans, beloved icons of the industry and huge rising prospects sign on to the franchise. Inevitably, with the huge demand to be cast, there aren’t always enough top drawer roles to go around, and there’s a surprising number of big names who have slummed it in background and minor roles on DC’s slate. Given how many there’ve been, it’s not hard to see why some of the lesser billed characters might get lost in the shuffle. Considering where some of them are now – or once were – seeing them pop up mostly in the background as Batman or a fellow Justice Leaguer punches out a villain can be as odd as it is exciting.

Hamilton to get five-place grid penalty for gearbox change | 2017 Austrian Grand Prix

Posted on 5:00 am

Lewis Hamilton will take a five-place grid penalty at this weekend?s Austrian Grand Prix. The Mercedes driver?s penalty is for a gearbox change which has become necessary ahead of the ninth round of the championship. Gearboxes are required to last for six consecutive races but Hamilton?s current gearbox was fitted at round seven in Canada, two races ago. Austrian Grand Prix practice in picturesMercedes have confirmed Hamilton?s gearbox problem is not related to the incident with Sebastian Vettel during the last race, when Hamilton?s car was hit twice by the Ferrari. Hamilton has started from pole position in five of the eight races so far this year. It is his first penalty due to a technical problem so far this year. Hamilton had two five-place penalties for gearboxes changes in 2016. His only previous penalty this year was for driving unnecessarily slowly in front of Daniel Ricciardo in the pits during the Bahrain Grand Prix. Hamilton was asked yesterday whether he felt drivers should receive penalties for technical failures that are outside their control. He said it would be ?difficult? to introduce rules which penalise the team but not the driver. ?If a driver makes a mistake the team loses points,? said Hamilton. ?When [un]reliability hits, it hits you all together.? ?If you have an engine issue and you get a brand new one and you don?t take a penalty you gain an advantage on power quite often. I don?t know. Perhaps there?s a way they could do it.? Last year Hamilton?s Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg had a grid penalty for a gearbox change at the same race. 2017 Austrian Grand Prix Browse all Austrian Grand Prix articles Blog – News more...

Menswear to Serve ? Sports Inspired Collections

Posted on 9:00 pm

WORDS BY CHARLIE BRITTON The fashion industry has seen quite the rise in sportswear inspired garments in recent years with mega-trends such as ?sports luxe? and ?Ath-leisure? saturating the market. This sartorial mash-up of class and comfort expels the ?fashion rule book? as there simply are no boundaries. This summer really is no exception as brands release sportswear inspired collections, fit for occasion on and off the pitch and what a better time then just-in-time for good old Wimbledon. Kent and Curwen Creative director Daniel Kearns has clearly been quite busy in recent months. Working closely along side business partner and brand ambassador and the man himself, David Beckham, Kent and Curwen has produced a well liked and received SS18 collection, increased their brand awareness across the menswear fashion and retail scene and grown the brand?s strength from ageing and uncreative to well designed, expertly crafted and sought after. Creative Director Daniel Kearns and David Beckham As seen from the interesting presentation that received a well deserved mention in our top LFWM collections which you can see here, Kent and Curwen has focused on a ?teams? inspired collection. Bringing in design and detail from different sporting events such as tennis and cricket, the collection has created a nostalgic and very British aura, something rather refreshing and good to see on the menswear scene. Although this is next Spring/Summers collection, Kent and Curwen?s current SS17 collection is still the perfect choice for today?s modern sportsman. From knitted striped tees to cotton cricket jumpers, the collection is bursting with British heritage and sportsmanship. What?s more, the collection is currently on sale, so make sure you check it out before its gone! Australian L?Alpina A name often associated with sports, Australian L?Alpina was founded in 1946 and quickly became a recognisable player on the tennis scene.  The unique kangaroo motif may well be one of the more recognisable of heritage brand logos too and has continued to grow in popularity, both on and off the court. This year, L?Alpina has teamed up with former British David Cup winner, James Ward, as the brand ambassador for this spring summer season. As James Ward steps back into the tennis scene, he has lead the latest collection of contemporary and timeless tennis garments perfect for a game on the grass or a drink at the pub. Logo embroidered polo shirts with contrasting sleeves and heritage inspired track tops make up most of the collection, with L?Alpina sticking to their traditional style of design as they always have done best. Wearable for sporting occasions and causal occasions alike, this Summer17 collection defines Italian sportswear without the ridiculous price tag. The full Italian contemporary collection is available now on Australian L?Alpina. Ellesse Now a household name for the younger and older generation, Ellesse was started in 1959 and took pride in it?s Italian sportswear roots as it still very much does to this day. Initially starting with ski-wear, Ellesse quickly became an important name in the sporting world as it went on to sponsor the likes of Ferrari F1 and the New York marathon in the 1980?s. Taking inspiration from Wimbledon itself, Ellesse has launched a tennis collection for men, with each garment appropriately named after a famous tennis sporting figure. The colourways of navy, blue and white keep the collection contemporary and up to date, whilst the Ellesse red and yellow logo stands...

RPS Suggests: Inventory improvements

Posted on 5:00 am

Hello! As a counterpoint to RPS Asks where we offer up a question for your consideration, I think we need an RPS Suggests where we put forward our own ideas. Today I spent lunchtime thinking about inventories and how games rarely seem to be able to approximate the reality of a backpack. Here is my suggestion: Ignoring how difficult it would be to program or to organise, I?d be so excited to see an inventory in a game where the objects behaved more like they were in a real backpack and could be compressed, crushed, squashed, mulched, ruined, tessellated and so on once the healthy limit of the pack had been exceeded. Imagine, if you will, your Skyrim inventory. It contains your archmage robes, an apple, the Oghma Infinum, a potion that damages your health and bestows invisibility, vampire dust, nirnroot, a cheese wheel, a lockpick and a glass dagger. As you pile more and more nonsense into your bag your archmage robes acquire the ?crushed? quality and when you wear them people say things like ?Would you like to borrow my iron?? or ?Are you doing the archmage walk of shame because it looks like you slept in that??. The apple goes from ?crunchy? to ?bruised? to ?pulped on one side?. The Oghma Infinum?s pages get bent and torn and the book also gradually develops the ?covered in bits of apple? quality. Ramming further knick knacks into your pack will result in the tinkling of glass and your backpack suddenly turning invisible. The bag containing the vampire dust splits and your apple is now ?bruised?, ?pulped on one side? and ?covered in dust? while the dust is now a dusty apple paste. (If you think that?s bad just be thankful Skyrim doesn?t have bananas.) The nirnroot is emitting a low hum which starts to make your spine crawl so you fish it out of the bag and throw it into a hedge. You then need to retrieve the nirnroot because your one remaining lockpick was tangled up in its leaves. The cheese wheel has bestowed the ?smells really strongly of cheese? quality on EVERYTHING and if you forget to reposition the dagger it pokes you in the back with every step. It also snags your archmage robes and risks cutting a hole in the bottom of your rucksack meaning you have to retrace your steps to find your belongings. I would be far more entertained by all of that happening when I overpack than just becoming overencumbered and having to throw away part of my fork collection. News on the net News...

Baku incident is a ?closed chapter? for Mercedes | 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Posted on 9:00 pm

Mercedes executive director Toto Wolff says the team has moved on from the Azerbaijan Grand Prix following the collision between Sebastian Vettel and its driver Lewis Hamilton. Wolff said he suspected it had been just ?a matter of time? before the pair clashed. ?Every great Formula One season is marked by a great rivalry,? Wolff reflected. ?Last year it was our internal battle between Lewis and Nico and this year it seems that the fight is on between Ferrari and Mercedes and Lewis and Sebastian.? ?As calm as it started, it was only a matter of time until the rivalry would eventually become more fierce and controversial. That moment happened in Baku and we saw the results of that tension on track.? ?We have moved passed that moment now and it is a closed chapter. The hearing on Monday was between the FIA and Sebastian and it reached the conclusion we have all seen.? Wolff said Mercedes? priority since the race has been ?reviewing both the design and procedures around our headrest which cost Lewis the win two weeks ago.? He added the team had made further progress with the difficulties it had experienced in getting the most out of the W08 chassis. ?We have made a step since Monaco in understanding what it takes to make our car perform,? he said. ?The sweet spot is still difficult to find but we are starting to do so more regularly.? 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix Browse all Azerbaijan Grand Prix articles stop-press Additional...

10 Simple Questions That Break Famous Video Game Stories In Half

Posted on 1:00 pm

Rockstar Video games have yielded some truly remarkable narrative experiences over the years, with some exemplary stories coming about even in the last decade. From being shunned and scorned by TV and film buffs in times past, video games have started to shine as a medium of storytelling, to the point where more and more games are being optioned for movie spin-offs. Don’t believe it? Well how do the likes of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic or Bioshock grab you? The reveal about the player’s identity and the history of Darth Revan in KOTOR is probably one of the greatest Star Wars stories ever told, and the detail around the maddened underwater world built by Ayn Rand fanatics are just two examples of how powerful and effective these stories can be when told well. Not all famous video game stories are as flawless as those of KOTOR or Bioshock, mind you, and some have enjoyed a seriously charmed life to be as popular as they are. With glaring plot-holes piercing the veil of their believability, here I have ten video game stories that can be broken in half by some ludicrously simple questions… 10. What Is Eagle Vision Actually Representing? Ubisoft Variations on Assassin’s Creed’s ‘Eagle Vision’ mechanic have become commonplace in numerous third person adventure games these days. When the tool became so prominent back in the original Assassin’s Creed game, it was deemed to be a useful addition that helped players assume the role of the master assassin. In the context of the events of the series, however, asking just what Eagle Vision is actually representing raises some pretty big questions about the story itself. Given that the technique allows players to mark targets through walls, around corners and even from a few floors below, just how is the protagonist able to pull off such witchcraft in real life? It’s never suggested that the assassins are genuinely able to see through solid walls, so how are the developers justifying the mechanic in-game? With the suggestion being that it’s simply a dormant sixth sense that all humans have, it seems tremendously suspicious that only relevant heroes have been able to make use of it. In the original game, the mechanic was also described as being the Animus’ visualisation of an assassin’s heightened observational skills, making it slightly paradoxical for a user of the machine to be able to see it too. If the Animus user gets the benefit of an occasional and supplementary ability at all times and uses that to complete their tasks, isn’t there a bit of a chicken and egg scenario on the cards? another blog From...
