Decay (2012) - The LHC Zombie Movie [full film]



Watch this: 'Decay,' a zombie movie made by physicists and filmed at the Large Hadron Collider

Zombie movies are a dime a dozen, but Decay, a full-length film released for free online today, offers an unusual setting for the rise of the living dead. Decay was shot on location at CERN by Luke Thompson, a University of Manchester physics Ph.D. student and first-time filmmaker, and its plot injects zombies into the search for the Higgs Boson, which waslikely discovered earlier this year. Other physics students and at least one professor round out the small cast and crew.
In many ways, Decay is standard B-horror, but the dark tunnels around the Large Hadron Collider make for some fantastically creepy scenes. Thompson also hopes that it will satirize popular perceptions of science — the LHC, particularly, has been the epicenter for speculation about world-destroying black holes and other types of super-science. While CERN has no official involvement in the project (the film wasn't set in sensitive locations), it's told Wired that Decay "shows how pure science can stimulate creativity." You can watch the whole 76-minute movie on YouTube, or download it for free from the official site.

Primer tráiler de Star Trek Into Darkness



 por Raúl Álvarez IGN España
Primero conocimos la trama, luego el póster y ahora el tráiler. Star Trek Into Darkness, secuela de Star Trek (2009) que ha dirigido J.J. Abrams, comienza a mostrar sus armas para convertirse en uno de los títulos más esperados de 2013.
Este primer adelanto de la película escenifica el tono oscuro y apocalíptico que avanzaban la sinopsis y el cartel promocional. El capitán Kirk (Chris Pine) y el resto de la tripulación del Enterprise se enfentan a un megalómano homicida que pretende destruir la Flota Estelar y, por extensión, la tierra.
Aunque aún no hay confirmación oficial, muchos fans creen que este villano interpretado por Benedict Cumberbacht (Sherlock) es una versión rejuvenecida de Khan, el mítico enemigo del capitán Kirk a quien en la saga original daba vida Ricardo Montalbán.
