Dolby Atmos Surround Sound Could Come to Living Rooms, But Many Challenges Stand in its Way

Once you've heard Atmos, there's no going back.

Captain America's "To-Do List" is Different Depending on the Country

Here's a fun little easter egg in Captain America: The Winter Soldier: In the beginning of the movie, we get a peek of Captain America's list of things he missed out on while he was asleep. Things like I Love Lucy and the Moon landing and Steve Jobs fill up his cute "things to catch up on to do list" but the funny thing is that the list is different depending on which country the movie is shown in.

Predator Was Nearly Jean-Claude Van Damme in a Lobster Suit

A fantastic collection of anecdotes about the shooting of Predator reveal that Jean-Claude Van Damme was expecting a starring role and wanted to fight Arnie with his martial arts skills, although the makers intended him to be more of a "stuntman" for the cloaking suit effects.
