Nucleus is the Alexa-enabled wireless voice and video intercom system every home needs

First Teaser for THE EMOJI MOVIE Sure Knows How to Get People Excited! Not really, Though

The first teaser trailer has been released for The Emoji Movie, and it’s possibly one of the worst marketing promos ever for a film. It does nothing to get anyone excited for the movie. In fact, it does the complete opposite and basically shows us how not even the studio is excited for their own film. But the teaser does sum up the movie idea perfectly with a big fat “meh” emoji. It’s really not the best first impression for a movie. It’s like Sony Animation is preparing it to fail. All I know is that I’ll probably completely avoid this movie.

EMOJIMOVIE: EXPRESS YOURSELF unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.

The Emoji Movie opens in theaters on August 4, 2017. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think.

Report: Nintendo Switch performance drops when it’s not plugged in

After months of anticipation, Nintendo finally pulled the curtain back on the Switch in October. We saw the hybrid console in action for the first time, but many of us walked away from the reveal video scratching our heads. How much would it cost? How powerful would it be? Were all of the games in the video going to be ready for launch? How long could the battery on a portable home console possibly last?

We’re going to have to wait until January 12th to get the answers to most of those questions, but on Monday, Eurogamer shared a new report that appears to confirm the CPU and GPU clocks speeds of the Switch.

Months before Nintendo’s NX became the Switch, Eurogamer reported that the upcoming console would have its own display, detachable controllers and would be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra mobile processor.

Last week, VentureBeat backed up that claim through its own sources, confirming that the Switch wouldn’t be nearly as powerful as the PlayStation 4 (or the Xbox One, for that matter).

Now, with new information uncovered, Eurogamer has returned with an even more detailed article regarding the power of the Switch. According to Eurogamer’s sources, Nintendo’s Switch will have two performance configurations — one when its placed in the dock and another when its being used as a portable console.

While the CPU will run at the same speed regardless of whether its in the dock or not (1020MHz), available GPU speeds drop from 768MHz to 307.2MHz when the console is removed from its dock.

That’s a 60% decrease in clock speed — a pretty substantial dip. Even more (potentially) worrisome, the documentation that Eurogamer got its hands on implies that “developers can choose to hobble Switch performance when plugged in to match the handheld profile should they so choose.”

As for how this will affect games on the Switch, one source tells Eurogamer that developers will basically have to make two versions of the same game, similar to what’s happening with the PS4 Pro. The portable version will run at 720p while the docked version will hit 1080p resolution.

In order for the Nintendo Switch to work, there were going to have to be sacrifices. Try to run Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare in 4K on a tablet the size of an iPad and see how far you get. It was never in the cards, but if what we saw on The Tonight Show earlier this month is any indication, the Switch is still going to be a significant upgrade over the Wii U, and for many, a lower resolution will be worth the portability.

The Nintendo Switch is currently scheduled to launch in March.

Marvel at This Impressive Spider-Gwen Cosplay

Spider-Gwen is a full-fledged phenomenon at this point, and this is by far the best-looking cosplay I’ve seen of the character yet. Hendo poses in costume on the upper levels of the Hollywood and Highland complex in Los Angeles (just outside the iconic Chinese Theater and the Dolby Theater, the latter being where the Oscars are held) for photographer Vincenzo Spina. The cosplay is great on its own, but the atmosphere and the lighting take these shots to the next level.

11 new movie trailers you need to watch from this past week

It’s finally Star Wars week, which means you’re probably going to see Rogue One this weekend. The first reviews are already in for the movie, and we’re looking at another Disney hit here. But with Rogue One now in theaters it means it’s time to start waiting for other hot movies to hit cinemas. Here’s this week’s trailers collection!

Alone in Berlin

Dunkirk may be one of the hottest World War 2 movies to watch next year, but you should also keep an eye out for Alone in Berlin. It’s the real story of a German couple, played by Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson, who started opposing the Nazis in Berlin in the 1940s in a very unusual and clever way soon after they learned their boy died on the front. Alone in Berlin launches on January 13th.
