We always like to keep up with books as they are adapted to the 2nd biggest screen (the real big screen is in your head of course!).

There are some huge movies gaining buzz at the moment that are worth exploring on the page first. Check out the trailers below for a taste of what the books offer.

1. Gone Girl

THE ADDICTIVE No.1 BESTSELLER THAT EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT Who are you? What have we done to each other? These are the questions Nick Dunne finds himself asking on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they weren't made by him. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone. So what really did happen to Nick's beauti­ful wife?

We've talked about a number of our Mighty Gorilla Gaming Rigs here recently, showing off our latest builds of The Baboon and The Silverback, but one we always have trouble showing off is the Gorilla in the Mist. He's an elusive rig, that one.

Of course, the problem resides in the fact that technically it doesn't exist. Well… not until you say it does.

You see, the Gorilla in the Mist is our Gorilla Rig that you guys build for us. It could be a simple tweak to one of our pre-existing rigs, or a complete “From the Ground Up” custom assembly. It's really your call.

We certainly have our favourites amongst these builds, indeed those spec'd out for pure raw power are impressive to benchmark but we tend to lean towards those more like this one. With a perfect balance of unstoppable power and truly stunning component decisions…

Have you heard ‘Never Catch Me’ the latest track from the ultra-talented Flying Lotus and Hip Hop heavyweight Kendrick Lamar?

Give your ears the best possible treat and click play on the video below…trust me, do it!

In my opinion Kendrick is hands down the best in the field right now. When combined with the crazy beats and stunning instrumentals Fly-lo creates, we get a track that sounds like nothing else out there.

The Drums - 'Encyclopedia' Coming Soon! Music

Encyclopedia is The Drums third full-length album. Emerging from Brooklyn via Florida in 2009, they smashed on the scene with their ‘Summertime!’ EP that led to a spot on the BBC Sound of 2010 shortlist, The ShockWaves NME Tour, and the publication's Phi­llip Hall Radar Award.

The Drums music often explores the themes of loss, nostalgia, redemption, vulnerability, and love with critic's raves embracing both the lyrics and their sonic signature. This time around, they've embraced a darker sound while making it as grand and majestic as they please.

‘Encyclopedia’ is full of “magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout” says Jonny. The upcoming LP marks the first time since the ‘Summertime!’ EP that Jacob and Jonny were left to their own devices, without having to ask a soul for approval. The result is an exciting display of personal emotion and unashamed, majestic songwriting style.
