Weekend Feature

After its month-long reign on top of the box office charts, The Dark Knight took second place beneath Ben Stiller's Hollywood commando spoof, Tropic Thunder. But Christopher Nolan's masterpiece took another second place spot--above Star Wars as the second highest-grossing film of all time in the domestic charts.

Stiller, along with Robert Downey Jr. and Jack Black, took in about $26 million this past weekend with Tropic Thunder, while Christian Bale and the late, great Heath Ledger added $16.8 million to its $471.5 million national total. It passed Star Wars's $460 million haul, but it looks like it won't make it up to Titanic's $600 million mark.

Oh, and speaking of Star Wars, the CG powered feature film Star Wars: Clone Wars, opened third place with $15.5 million.

iPhone App Rundown

TylerColfax
Posted August 16, 2008 - By TylerColfax


They say you can tell a lot about a man by his apps.

Apple has opened up a wonderful can of worms by welcoming the development of anyone with time, skill, and innovation enough to program new applications for their iPhone and iPod touch. And just as they did with iTunes, they're acting as a gatekeeper between the producer and the user, and taking their share of every transaction (30%) while watching their hardware sales skyrocket.

It's an ingenious way to sell hardware: Make software, or in this case supervise the transfer of open development to the consumer, and everyone and their brother will want the manufactured device that it runs on.

The best part of this whole personal computing revolution is the idea of customization. Every user is different, and Apple has made it possible for everyone to enjoy their iPhone in their own way. Check out the list below and see where you fit in.

The Dark Knight has officially hit theaters, and, unlike other comic-based movies--which are generally dismissed by film snobs--critics and fans alike seem to universally recognize that movie is about more than a man in a cape and cowl. It's as enthralling and morally complex as any film you'll see this year and improves upon 2005's monumental triumph, Batman Begins.

Next week is E3 week, and our excitement is running dangerously high--our geek-meters are in the red and we're getting ready to melt the core. We want the weekend to be over sooner, and this week, we'll all be saying "Thank God it's Monday!" 

Here's an idea of what some of us at G4 are most excited about at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.


Co-Op Games: With games like Valve's Left 4 Dead, Capcom's Resident Evil 5, and Sony's LittleBigPlanet, it appears that this year's "big thing" in multiplayer is co-op gaming. Sure, tea bagging some sap in Halo 3 is still good for a laugh, but there is nothing quite as fulfilling as escaping an onslaught of fast-moving zombies without leaving anyone behind.

This year's E3 certainly seems to be the year of Co-Op gaming and nothing could have me more excited. In particular, the Co-op experience of trying to survive a classic zombie movie in Left 4 Dead is especially appealing. Also, finally being able to team up with my siblings in NY for a bi-coastal rock-splosion tour in Rock Band 2 is going to make my year!

David Byrne's Giant Organ

TylerColfax
Posted June 21, 2008 - By TylerColfax



There's an amazing art piece in Manhattan right now that allows anyone, free of charge, to "play" a building like you'd play a musical instrument. It's an audio installation conceived by David Byrne of Talking Heads and David Byrne fame and carried out by Creative Time and the City of New York.

I happened to be in Manhattan recently and I got a chance to step up and play the building for myself. The experience was humbling to say the least. I found that my total lack of knowledge about the keys of a piano translated nicely to a poorly conducted symphony of random sounds. But more than that, I realized the limits of my own preconceptions of music.
