Like Mystery Guitar Man, Corridor Digital got their hands on a bunch of Parrot’s fun new MiniDrones. But instead of playing music with theirs, they created a thrilling action short, filled with jumping race drones packing capabilities unlikely to be found on the retail models.

Hardcore (Trailer)

Hardcore (Trailer)

SPECTRE (Teaser)

SPECTRE (Teaser)

A mysterious look at the 24th film in the James Bond series, in which 007 must face off against a dastardly organization as he deals with the aftermath of Skyfall. It’s worth watching if only for the glimpse of Bond’s Aston Martin DB10.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (Teaser)

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (Teaser)

We like Tom Cruise best in action and sci-fi flicks. The latest in his Mission Impossible series looks as thrilling as ever, despite the guy being 19 years older than in his first MI movie. Plus, Simon Pegg is back. Yay! Hits theaters 7/31/15.
