You Won’t Be Alone’s new trailer is haunting and bewitching

In myth and legend, witches are almost always the villains. However, the new horror thriller You Won’t Be Alone is taking a different tack with its subject matter. The lead character, Nevena, is a witch and she does some horrible things. But she also wants to experience life as a human. To do so, she has to take lives and assume the identity of her victims.

Noomi Rapace stars in the film as Nevena, but since Nevena will take on different bodies, she will be portrayed by other actresses as well. Nevena can even become male if she chooses, and the new trailer appears to indicate that she will at one point. Unfortunately for Nevena, her activities have not gone unnoticed by both the people around her and her fellow witches. But who will get to Nevena first?

Here’s the official description for the film:

“Set in an isolated mountain village in 19th-century Macedonia, the film follows a young girl who is kidnapped and then transformed into a witch by an ancient spirit. Curious about life as a human, the young witch accidentally kills a peasant in the nearby village and then takes her victim’s shape to live life in her skin. Her curiosity ignited, she continues to wield this horrific power in order to understand what it means to be human.”

You won't want to miss the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on HBO
hbo rock hall induction 2017 preview and roll of fame

The many listeners who weren't able to attend this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony live in New York earlier this month can still experience the show as though they were there: HBO will play a filmed version of the ceremony, which paid tribute to inductees Pearl Jam, Joan Baez, and Tupac Shakur, on its cable channel and streaming services this weekend.

The many reported highlights of the show include a hilarious introduction for Pearl Jam from retired (and heavily bearded) late night legend David Letterman, who hilariously declared, "I can't begin to tell you what an honor and a privilege it is for me to be out of the house, honest to God," during his nearly 15-minute speech.

You won’t watch a live NFL game in VR this year. Here’s why
nfl virtual reality nextvr voke super bowl il2

You can experience almost anything in virtual reality. You can be on stage as Paul McCartney performs. You can travel around the globe. You can even watch a live game in virtual reality from the NBA, NCAA and NASCAR. But you can't watch an NFL game live.

For the most part, the only NFL you can get in virtual reality is highlight packages from virtual reality companies NextVR and Voke. Though impressive, they leave a lot to be desired. You get close enough to Odell Beckham catching a one-handed pass in the end-zone to unconsciously jerk your body back so you don't impede his motion. But you also get up close and personal with meaningless, unexciting catches that bump into the camera. NextVR and Voke are in the business of selling specific experiences, rather than selling an all-access pass to an entire game.

You don't have to binge-watch Netflix alone now that Atticus is here

If you're binge-watching television, you're probably doing it all by your lonesome, right? Really, you can't put on your stretchy pants and hunker down with a pint -- fine, gallon -- of ice cream in polite company. But even if you enjoy this solitude, there's something to be said about having a companion with whom to share those jokes, or commiserate in the injustice of the latest plot twist. But that companion doesn't have to human. Meet Atticus, a new chatbot from AT&T "built to talk entertainment." Just think of him as the perfect boyfriend.

"If he had any more entertainment knowledge, he would have his own show," AT&T said of its newest digital friend. "He’s here to test your knowledge and share fun facts about your favorite shows, from Scandal to Kingdom to The Big Bang Theory. Truthfully, it’s hard to believe he’s not real." Isn't it, though? Such perfection doesn't exist in our species.
