Last night’s Wayward Pines season finale brought an ambiguous end to a show that’s had a bumpy ride in its second season. It was an obvious set-up for the rumored (but not announced) third and final season, but the show would actually be much better off letting “Bedtime Story” double as the series finale.
I’m in the back of a Gregory’s Coffee in New York’s midtown across from Dronpes and flanked by Moots7, who are careful to tell me as little about themselves as possible. From what I can gather Moots works in finance and comes from rural Colorado, while Dronpes is a developer at a tech company, hard-working with a…

After breaking box-office records in South Korean, Train to Busan—in which a zombie virus rapidly begins spreading between passengers on a bullet train—is headed stateside.

Christophe Gans’ version of the fairy tale, starring Vincent Cassel (Jason Bourne) and Léa Seydoux (Spectre) is coming to the United States this fall. And with this trailer, it’s officially the best-looking of any of the recent cinematic attempts to do these fairy tales justice.
MIT’s Media Lab is where brilliant people work on some of the most creative tech projects in the world. And if they get hungry there’s a vending machine just down the hall.
