Earlier this year, Amazon-owned IMDb launched a new streaming service that was (for some reason) called Freedive originally. It's since had its name changed to the more practical IMDb TV, and as of today, it's available as part of the pre-existing IMDb mobile app.

Now we've got all the details about the new service, which is scheduled to launch on April 8th for $10-11 a month.

MoviePass competitor Sinemia now starts at $4.99 per month, but with caveats

By giving more than 2 million customers a way to see multiple movies in theaters each month at a discounted price, MoviePass is disrupting the cinema industry in a big way. While not nearly as much of a household name, Sinemia is vying to do the same. With new subscription plans starting at lower prices and boasting features that its rival doesn't offer, Sinemia may seem like an appealing alternative — and it may be for some types of moviegoers. But as is typically the case, the devil is in the details.

With Amazon Original Movies, The Company You Buy Everything From Is Getting Ready For The Big Screen

Amazon may be on its way to a theater near you. Amazon Studios, the online retailer's video production wing, has announced that it will start producing and acquiring its own original movies, debuting them in theaters and bringing them to Amazon Instant Video shortly thereafter. These works will come under the banner of Amazon Original Movies.

Amazon Studios has already produced a number of television series such as Mozart in the Jungle and Transparent. This has furthered its competition with Netflix, the video on demand provider that has broken records with its own originally-produced series House of Cards and plans to release its own original movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend in the summer of 2015.

[New Game] Warner Bros. Releases Official '300: Rise Of An Empire - Seize Your Glory' Action Game

300: Rise of an Empire - Seize Your Glory confuses what goes in a name and what should be a tagline. Shortening this down to 300: Rise of an Empire, the name of the upcoming film it's based on, would make perfect sense, but no. Instead, we get this.
