Earlier this month, we got our long-awaited first trailer for the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff film, and it was actually pretty fine. Not the disaster some fans might have expected given the movie’s tumultuous production, just not the greatest trailer in the world. But it turns out there’s one way to make it pretty dang great: A bit of “Sabotage.”
Chris Galegar, co-host of War Starts At Midnight, cut together this new version of the trailer using the Beastie Boys classic—and preferred tune of the rebooted Star Trek movies, weirdly enough—that blends together shots from the Super Bowl TV spot and full trailer that is all cool-looking smuggler space action and no dialogue. And, as alien as it is to read the words “Star Wars” and “Beastie Boys” together, it honestly really, really works. See what you think:
It’s something that is, in and of itself, very much like Han himself—a bit swaggery, a bit rough around the edges, a bit lighter in tone. It’s an idea you’d think should never come together but somehow absolutely does. It emphasizes the action and grandeur of what we saw in the footage instead of dialogue teasers about Han’s mysterious past or the intriguing figures that are a part of it. It’s a ton of fun!
Would Star Wars fans have blown a gasket if this was an official trailer? Probably—especially given the song’s link to the Trek reboot—but then again, they also blew their gaskets about the physics of hyperspace travel as a combat technique. This would’ve at least been a surprising way to show that Solo is going to be a bit different to most of the other Star Wars movies we’ve had already.
A Google security researcher has found multiple security flaws affecting the uTorrent web and desktop client that allow an attacker to infect a victim with malware or collect data on the users' past downloads, reports BleepingComputer. From the report: The vulnerabilities have been discovered by Google Project Zero security researcher Tavis Ormandy, and they impact uTorrent Web, a new web-based version of the uTorrent BitTorrent client, and uTorrent Classic, the old uTorrent client that most people know. Ormandy says that both uTorrent clients are exposing an RPC server -- on port 10000 (uTorrent Classic) and 19575 (uTorrent Web). The expert says that attackers can hide commands inside web pages that interact with this open RPC server. The attacker only needs to trick a user with a vulnerable uTorrent client to access a malicious web page. Furthermore, the uTorrent clients are also vulnerable to DNS rebinding -- a vulnerability that allows the attacker to legitimize his requests to the RPC server.

dawn breaks like a fallen vase push back the hands of time unwelcome vision of rosy fingers push back the hands of time it wouldn’t help you if you’d had any sleep it wouldn’t save you from the mission creep push back the hands of time push back the hands of time screeching tires but never a collision endless day without a sunset provision endless day

oooh so much stuff to digest in this video! I'm sure I missed at least a few references. What's the black&white setting in "livello 10" supposed to be? It is a little bit evocative of La Jetee, which would fit the time travel theme.
