Russian rocket maker blows up plane to prove it didn’t blow up MH17



ARTEMIVSK, Ukraine — How do you prove you didn’t blow up a plane? In Russia, you blow up a plane.

A Russian missile manufacturer said Friday that it had exploded a missile beneath a decommissioned Boeing airliner similar to that of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, shot out of the sky over eastern Ukraine last year, proving the passenger jet was not downed by one of its missiles.

“The company will present the results of a real-time simulation of a Buk missile hitting a passenger jet which we hope will help us understand what exactly caused the July 17, 2014 crash of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 in Ukraine’s Donetsk region,” Almaz-Antey said in a statement Read more…

ABC Family’s ‘Shadowhunters’ gets a moody first trailer



The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones didn’t exactly storm the box office in 2013. The movie was panned by critics and drew disappointing receipts, scuttling plans for a franchise of sequels. Clearly, though, there was an audience for filmed versions of Cassandra Clare’s YA series; Simon & Schuster says there are over 24 million copies of The Mortal Instruments in print worldwide

The solution? Turn Clare’s work into a serialized TV show, which premieres on ABC Family — sorry, that’s Freeform now — in 2016.

The first teaser for the show, which premiered on Snapchat and at New York Comic Con before finally hitting YouTube, introduces (or re-introduces) the series’ main players: redheaded chosen one Clary Fray, dishy demon-fighter Jace Wayland, nerdy Simon Lewis, Glee refugee Harry Shum Jr. as flamboyant sorcerer Magnus Bane, and — maybe most excitingly — Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa as a werewolf named Luke Read more…

Here’s our first glimpse at ‘Bridget Jones’ Baby’



Or at least, at her baby bump.

2001 Bridget Jones was wholly concerned with weight loss and getting a boyfriend — but in Bridget Jones’ Baby, things have changed. Though the sequel’s title already gives it away, star Renee Zellweger has been spotted in London sporting a prosthetic belly for Bridget’s pregnancy

But is Darcy the father?

The third installment in the Bridget Jones series, following 2004’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, still focuses on Bridget and Darcy (a returning Colin Firth), though it’s unclear whether he’s the father of the titular baby. Helen Fielding, author of the Bridget Jones novels, published the series’ most recent installment in 2013 — but the new film will take place chronologically before the events of Fielding’s Mad About the Boy.

Every Friday is a holiday when you’re a Destiny fan.

That’s when Xur, Agent of the Nine, appears in a random part of the game’s social spaces to peddle his rare weapons and armor. As long as you have enough Strange Coins, a rare currency that can be picked up from random loot drops, Xur has the goods for you.

Xur deals in Destiny‘s so-called “exotic” gear. In a game ruled by random loot drops, exotics are the most sought-after of them all. They’re also the only class of gear in the game with usage restrictions; namely, you can only have one exotic armor piece and one exotic weapon equipped at any given moment. Read more…
