Although it does not have an official name yet, the open-top hypercar is expected to be called LaFerrari SpiderFerrari has revealed a convertible version of the LaFerrari hypercar.To be named and shown off in more detail at the Paris motor show in October, the car has the same performance as its hard-topped sibling, but is expected to be even more exclusive and expensive.Tipped to cost in the region of £2m $2.6m , the LaFerrari convertible will be twice as expensive as the regular car, and only 150 examples are expected to be made, compared to 499 of the original.But if you've already raided the piggy bank and were hoping to place an order, we have some bad news, because Ferrari says it held a secret event with potential buyers and all of the cars have already been sold.The car has both a removeable soft top and a carbon fibre hard top, the latter to make the cabin a more comfortable place to be on long motorway journeys and while driving at high speed.
We re still a year and a half out from the next numbered episode of the Star Wars saga, but that hasn t dampened anyone s enthusiasm for the sequel.In fact, if not for the impending releases of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Justice League and Rogue One, the wait might be nigh on unbearable.Thankfully, we ve gotten a few significant updates from those involved with the production along with way, including a couple seconds of footage, some incredible set photos and now a confirmation of when filming will wrap from Luke himself.MUST SEE: Happy July 4th!Here are some videos of spectacular fireworks failsHere s what Mark Hamill said when a fan on Twitter asked him if he could tell them anything about Episode VIII:
For comic fans, one of the sweetest moments of E3 2016 was the announcement that a new Spider-Man game was coming, and better still that it was being developed by Insomniac Games, developers of Sunset Overdrive, Ratchet & Clank and the Resistance games.But while the internet rejoiced at the idea of a good Spider-Man game since Spider-Man 2, I had only one thought cross my mind: "Peter Parker, again?".His archetype is "slightly whiny teenager" and every four years or so, when his character gets rebooted, we're subjected to his lacklustre origin story once more.Now it feels like it's reinventing itself almost every month with big plot twists, new characters and broken conventions.Why can't we get Marvel Zombies horror games or a blood-soaked Punisher first-person-shooter?Let's look at some of the big changes from the last few months: Steve Rogers, everyone's favourite all-American Nazi puncher, has vacated the role of Captain America for Sam Wilson, a superhero from Harlem who trades Steve Roger's powerset of "I'm a goddamn super soldier" for "can fly and has a telepathic link to birds".
The Ferrari 458 MM Speciale is a one-off car built on the chassis of a 458 SpecialeAs celebrating a birthday goes, building 350 unique cars with your own name on has to be one of the most lavish.But then Ferrari celebrating its 70th birthday is a big deal, so instead of building several hundred of one new, special car – as with the F40 and F50 before – 2017 will see 350 very lucky Ferrari customers get their own unique slice of the birthday celebration.To create the cars Ferrari has picked out 70 of the most iconic vehicles from its back catalogue, before taking their styling cues and blending them with the current road car lineup.The result will see 70 unique examples of each of the company's current cars, the California T, 488 GTB, 488 Spider, F12 and new GTC4Lusso.Ferrari revealed its birthday plans to 100 owners and collectors who competed in the 2016 Cavalcade, a driving holiday in Venice for the company's most valued clients.
Brooklyn Public Library When 3-year-old Serenity first saw her father on the big screen, she rushed up to put both hands on his face, as if preparing for him to hoist her into the air.As Nick Higgins, the library's director of outreach services, recalls, Serenity's father never stopped singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider," even as fellow inmates and guards passed by in the
You know it s a slow superhero movie news week when apparently leaked and largely underwhelming concept art for Justice League makes a big splash.According to Fatman on Batman producer Matt Key, Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox—the studio that controls the X-Men and Fantastic Four movie rights—are perhaps more open to a crossover than you might suspect.He immediately clarified, Not really, but like there s interest from Fox, like, Ooh, y know, what they did with Sony and Spider-Man is actually pretty cool, like, maybe…' The more he talked, the more he seemed to walk back his own rumor: We re years away from that ever possibly happening, he went on, but I think that s what it would take: Fox joining hands with Marvel.Why this could be super: If this turns out to be more than just a random thing that Key said and immediately regretted hence the subsequent quasi-takeback , this would be a big deal indeed: Marvel s comic book universe finally united on the big screen.SUPER IDEA: Getting Properly Amped for Suicide SquadIf you ve been getting excited about Suicide Squad recently, you re not alone.
Glastonbury is arguably the biggest music weekend of the year and so tickets are in high demand, often leaving plenty disappointed by the time the festival rolls around.But, EE – which happens to be one of the festival s partners – had a 360 camera on site to shoot video that can be viewed in virtual reality and panned around on desktop .The result is even if you weren t there, you can now get a taste of being beneath the giant spider at Arcadia, watching your favourite band on the Other Stage or dancing until the sun comes up in the madness that is Shangri-La.The telecoms firm, which is also behind the temporary 4G WiFi network that is used to keep everyone online at Glasto, also had some impressive stats from the site.A total of 25 terabytes of data were used over the five days – up 130% on last year.For some perspective that is the equivalent of downloading Coldplay s Hymn For The Weekend around six million times.

Marvel/FoxThere was a rumor about Marvel and Fox partnering up to combine their superhero universes that made the rounds yesterday, after Matt Key, a producer on director Kevin Smith s podcast Fat Man on Batman said the following:I ve heard from a few of my sources, my little birds, that Fox and Marvel have… kind of talked, but not really, but like there s interest from Fox, like, Ooh, y know, what they did with Sony and Spider-Man is actually pretty cool, like, maybe… We re years away from that ever possibly happening… but I think that s what it would take… Fox joining hands with Marvel…Even assuming that Kevin Smith s podcast producer has sources inside the highest echelons of Marvel Studios and Fox, his announcement that the two studios have kind of talked, but not really doesn t even warrant a grain of a salt at this point.The tenant of that storyline is that this a real person who is trapped in this etherworld and it becomes this in-the-wall so to speak of the command center , He still has a heart and mind, but an agenda that he s got to get these five Power Rangers to defend the earth or else everyone they know will be killed.Here s the first trailer:Suicide SquadFunkoPop has revealed its Sand Diego Comic-Con exclusive figure of Batman from the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.The Space Between UsThe film, about a boy Asa Butterfield raised scientists on Mars who makes his first journey to Earth will open on December 21st.Minecraft: The MovieThe Minecraft movie will now premiere at some point during summer 2019.Inspired by the Internet s 404 error code, Dimension 404 aims to evoke that 3 AM feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web and stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know.

Image Source: TeslaWhen it comes to pure speed and raw acceleration, you d be hard pressed to find a car that offers you more bang for the buck than a Tesla Model S. Specifically, the Tesla Model S P90D — with Ludicrous Mode enabled — is a 762 horsepower speed demon that can skyrocket from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds.Not surprisingly, we ve seen no shortage of videos which pit a tricked out Model S against all sorts of supercars, from a Lamborghini Aventador to a McLaren 650S Spider.We ve even seen a Tesla Model S go head to head with a Boeing 737 for reasons that still defy explanation.DON T MISS: Leaked iPhone 7 photos point to intriguing new camera designRecently, the enterprising folks over at Drag Times decided to see what happens when a Tesla Model S P90D gets matched up against its brethren, a Tesla Model S P85D.The result isn t necessarily surprising as the P90D obviously earns the W, but the gap between the cars is worth paying attention to.Video of the race in its entirety can be viewed below.

Back in the 1980s, Marvel rolled out a kid-focused imprint called Star Comics.Ha ha, deep cut, writers CM Punk and Cullen Bunn, I think, wondering what status quo change might have led to Adam Warlock being the butt of jokes.Launched in 1984, Star Comics was a collection of toy and cartoon tie-in projects Starhawks, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos , goofy mutations of the publisher s established superheroes Spider-Ham and blatant rip-offs of other companies successes Royal Roy was basically Richie Rich .The character named via a bad pun was just the tip of Planet Terry s awkward execution iceberg.Who thought it was a good idea to have an antenna-ed homage to legendary Borscht Belt comedian Henny Youngman in a kids comic?It s a fun instance of digging into cobwebbed portions of the Marvel character stable and making a flubbed experiment useful more than 30 years later, seeing as how his appearance got me to pick up a comic I hadn t been reading.
Norman Reedus continues to hype up The Walking Dead s gruesome return.Perhaps unsurprisingly, given his recent re-involvement with the role in Star Wars Rebels, James Earl Jones will once again lend his voice to the character.Most interestingly, the report goes against prior rumors, saying that Vader s role in the film is a minor one, but important—especially as Vader and Ben Mendelsohn s character, Director Krennic, will have an antagonistic relationship due to Vader s power beyond the Imperial hierarchy.The Walking DeadPerpetual hype man Norman Reedus continues to tease the show s take on Negan bashing one of the principal cast s head in, this time to Conan O Brien:I ll say that.Comicbook.com The MistFrances Conroy has joined the TV adaption of the Stephen King novella.ArrowFinally, speaking in a recent live Facebook chat, Stephen Amell says the season five premiere has the opportunity to have the most vicious, violent one-shot in the history of network television.
There has been a recent flurry of casting for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and there is no lack of talent among the group.As Vic on BBC s Orphan Black, for example, he was less than kind, to say the least.Homecoming began shooting in Atlanta this week, so Mando should be hard at work soon, if he is not already.Although there have been multiple Spider-Man reboots in recent years, Homecoming is particularly exciting given its strong tie-in to the rest of the MCU.The story centers on a high-school-aged Peter Parker Holland , who doubles as Spider-Man.Based on the comics created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the screenplay was written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.
Original art from Avengers 2 by Jerome Opeña, 2012 Now that we actually live in a reality where Marvel s Cinematic Universe can call itself home to the most iconic superhero in the world, it s weird to look back at the time when Marvel and Sony s relationship over Spider-Man was a bit frostier than it is now.Yes to both those questions.I want to make money.Knowing that Marvel has such a clear, creative vision, I sleep very well at night.While it s to be expected—this deal was never just going to be for Civil War, Homecoming, and then cameos in future Marvel films or something—this is the most frank a Sony executive has been about the new status quo staying for the foreseeable future.We ve had hints already, of course, with the expansion of projects like the Spider-Man animated film, or even beyond the movies to the new deal the two companies have struck over a Spider-Man video game franchise exclusively for Sony s Playstation consoles.
