The Epic & The Beasts When we were kids we never dreamt of being a firemen, a pilot or superhero. We always wanted to be skateboarders, jumping up curbs, down the stairs and filp our boards as many times as we could. This has not changed until today.

Make The Move – Best Skydive and Base 2012 In theaters July 18th. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” is written and directed by the Wachowskis.
18 Breathtaking Action Shots Taken with a GoPro Camera Ever had a problem capturing action shots with your camera? Not if you’re using GoPro. This company makes small, wearable, waterproof and shockproof cameras. Beloved by professional skiers, cyclists, skydivers and surfers it also suits the needs of everyday people because it’s affordable and easy to use. Nick Woodman, the founder of GoPro, said he was inspired to start the company after his surfing trip to Australia in which he was hoping to capture quality action photos of his surfing, but couldn’t, because amateur photographers could not get close enough, or obtain quality equipment at accessible prices. Only a week ago the company presented their latest model – the Wi-Fi enabled HD HERO 3.
