Ant-Man & Wasp – First Trailer and Poster!

A first look at the Ant-Man & The Wasp Trailer! This year is undoubtedly jam packed with Marvel. Black Panther is right around the corner, Avengers: Infinity War is out this spring and this year’s summer Marvel movie is Ant-Man & The Wasp. Have a look at the first trailer below: The poster has also been released and, yeah, there’s no smudge on your screen! That’s THEM. This first trailer doesn’t give a lot away, apart from some nice gags, and that Thomas the Tank Engine’s role has been replaced by Hello Kitty. Ant-Man & The Wasp will focus on…

Vi for Vendetta

The future is here, in your ear, and she’s telling you to run. A company called LifeBEAM labs (yep) has developed a product called Vi, which is an interactive AI personal trainer. No, this isn’t the beginning of a Black Mirror episode where anyone with a BMI over 25 is forcibly marched thin. This is a real thing, and it’s pretty nifty. Vi is a voice activated artificial intelligent personal trainer. AIPT. for short…? It’s marketed as ‘adapting to an individual’s behaviour, environment and physiology to deliver tailored, real-time coaching ideal for entry to intermediate runners.’ So essentially, she learns, and looks stylish (in…

Jurassic Pak

There aren’t very many men in the Venn diagram overlap of “hot Instagram Crossfitters” and “guys who bring a Homo ergaster skull to dinner”. In fact, there’s probably just my friend, Dr Francesc Gascó – aka Pakozoic. His transformation has been incredible, not only his physical one but also his online transformation into an influencer. I caught up with him in Madrid, and discussed how he juggles training, palaeontology and shirtless photoshoots. And he tricked me into eating octopus. Plus, some lovely photos by Lee Faircloth. 
Gay Times featured you earlier this year in January as you’ve broken the scientist mould –…

I MET CHRIS FREAKIN’ PRATT, YOU GUYS. But more on that, in a mo. When the first instalment of Guardians of the Galaxy came out, it really took me by surprise. I remember heading into the cinema thinking, “Oh man, I am not going to enjoy this”. I had no idea what this group of seemingly C-list Marvel galactic characters were really about. Sure, I knew about the Kree, Nova and the Skrulls through some of the bigger Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four cross over stories in the comic books, but the Guardians really did pass me by. I know I am…

“Working out…with your boyfriend.”

They say couples that lift together, stay together. And of course, I hope that’s true! But it’s not necessarily the reality. I mean, I love my boyfriend very much. But I remember a day, two years ago so vividly that it could have happened yesterday or an hour ago. A day that hopefully I am not alone in experiencing. The day my world imploded – he wanted to workout with me. Once I picked myself up of the floor and asked “what happened”, he reiterated his novel idea to me once again. A second black-out later, and I managed to…
