Did you see Mr. Incredible's Chewbacca-buster armour? SO COOL.

Trailer breakdown: Avengers: Age Of Ultron? More like Age Of FUN-ltron!
Sure, you might have already watched the Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer several times, but have you seen it in still-frame form, accompanied by hastily-written comments, a good week after everyone else published something very similar? I'm guessing the answer is oh you've already gone.

Well played, Nightcrawler PR team: Lou Bloom is now on LinkedIn
Media savvy try-hard Lou Bloom just requested I add him on professional social network LinkedIn, despite the handicap of being entirely fictional. It's fun, though - a bit like being matched with Patrick Bateman on Tinder.

Nine exciting new potential titles for Edge Of Tomorrow: Live Die Repeat
The Warner Bros marketing team have got themselves in quite the pickle with Edge Of Tomorrow. Despite being critically acclaimed and featuring the biggest movie star in the world in the lead role, Edge Of Tomorrow flopped in cinemas, leading to drastic measures - the title has changed to Live Die Repeat. We say this: IT HASN'T CHANGED ENOUGH.

By all accounts The Babadook is very scary, but all I get from this still is a vague longing for George Dawes.

TheShiznit.co.uk's 10th anniversary podcast is online, terrible
In yet another example of TheShiznit.co.uk being ahead of the curve when it comes to exciting new trends, we've recorded a 'pod-cast' - basically an audio recording of us talking into a microphone, which we have subsequently published on the Internet. Remember where you heard it first!

Here's that amazing Gone Girl poster easter egg you didn't notice

Here's that amazing Gone Girl poster easter egg you didn't notice
The first time I laid eyes on the poster for David Fincher's Gone Girl, adapted from Gillian Flynn's excellent book, I didn't think much of it. Futura? Yawn. Ben Affleck looking sad? Tell it to Batman. A giant floating head? Probably the most overused poster cliché there is. Then I noticed the whopping great easter egg for fans who have already read the book. Then it clicked. And now I think it's genius. Read on if you want to see it (spoiler).

Top 10 films of our lifetime #1: No Country For Old Men

Top 10 films of our lifetime #1: No Country For Old Men
There were many factors that went into deciding the Top 10 Films Of Our Lifetime, but really, I pulled rank as Editor and decided pretty early doors that there was only ever going to be one #1 film. No Country For Old Men is a film that, from the first moment I saw it, made me appreciate film on a level higher than just 'good performances' and 'good story'. It made me want to investigate cinematographers, composers and screenwriters. It made me want to make movies and tell stories myself. But most of all, it made me want to watch it again. I hope you've enjoyed this countdown, because we've enjoyed putting it together. Normal service will resume shortly, I've got a pretty good Nicolas Cage Photoshop planned for next week - Ali.

Top 10 films of our lifetime #2: Children Of Men

Top 10 films of our lifetime #2: Children Of Men
I bloody love a good apocalypse. I think if I were a director, being given the chance to ruin the world and set up camp at ground zero would be like being a kid in a sweet shop: so much potential for iconic imagery, so many stories to tell, so many angles. In Children Of Men, Alfonso Cuaron tells the biggest story - the imminent extinction of mankind - yet manages to make it small and personal at the same time. And, true to form, he captures some unforgettable imagery along the way. I hope the real apocalypse looks this good - Ali.

Top 10 films of our lifetime #3: Pan's Labyrinth

Top 10 films of our lifetime #3: Pan's Labyrinth
Of all the films on this countdown, Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth is the only one I've seen once - but once was enough. Every movie del Toro makes feels like it's been lived in for a thousand years, and Pan's Labyrinth is no different. It is an absolute pleasure to enter the headspace of such a vivid daydreamer, and there's no one else out there right now capable of bringing nightmares to life with quite so much gusto. Bravo, Guillermo, you horribly twisted, worrying individual, you - Ali.
