his weekend, the pairing of star Jake Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve equaled the number one movie in the country, Prisoners. Next, the pair will team up again in a story with not one, but two Gyllenhaals. That film is called Enemy, and following a premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, a mysterious teaser clip has now come online.

Based on a novel by Jose Saramago, Gyllenhaal stars as a downtrodden college professor who comes to realize there’s a younger version of himself somewhere in the world. It also stars Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini and Sarah Gadon. Check out the teaser below.

Here’s the teaser for Enemy, which does not yet have a release date, but was picked up by A24.

How do ethics and the free market interact? As the authors of a new paper on the topic point out, the answer is often complicated. In the past, Western economies had vigorous markets for things we now consider entirely unethical, like slaves and Papal forgiveness for sins. Ending those practices took long and bloody struggles. But was this because the market simply reflects the ethics of the day, or does engaging in a market alter people's perception of what's ethical?

To find out, the authors of the paper set up a market for an item that is ethically controversial: the lives of lab animals. They found that, for most people, keeping a mouse alive, even at someone else's cost, is only worth a limited amount of money. But that amount goes down dramatically once market-based buying and selling is involved.

The research was done at the University of Bonn, which appears to have a biology department that includes researchers who study mouse genetics. As Mendel told us, genes are inherited independently. So as these researchers are breeding mice to get a specific combination of genes, they'll inevitably get mice that have the wrong combination. Since proper mouse care is expensive and lab mice typically live a couple of years, it's standard procedure to euthanize these unneeded mice.

An anonymous reader writes "Two hundred hackers from around the world gathered at a Miami Beach hotel Thursday and Friday for the Infiltrate Security conference, which focuses on systems hacking from the 'offensive' perspective (with slides). In a keynote address, Stephen Watt, who served two years in prison for writing the software used by his friend Alberto Gonzalez to steal millions of credit card numbers from TJX, Hannaford and other retailers, acknowledges he was a 'black hat' but denies that he was directly involved in TJX or any other specific job. Watt says his TCP sniffer logged critical data from a specified range of ports, which was then encrypted and uploaded to a remote server. Brad 'RenderMan' Haines gave a presentation on vulnerabilities of the Air Traffic Control system, including the FAA's 'NextGen' system which apparently carries forward the same weakness of unencrypted, unauthenticated location data passed between airplanes and control towers. Regarding the recent potential exploits publicized by Spanish researcher Hugo Teso, Haines says he pointed out similar to the FAA and its Canadian counterpart a year ago, but received only perfunctory response."

Cellphone data searches are a contentious topic: there's no clear overall consensus on how much information police can get from a phone before needing a warrant, or how deep a search should be able to go. When we carry a portal to most of our lives in our pockets, should police be able to look into it the same way they would a notebook or wallet? Tangential to this issue is how much information actually is collected in an average search. While we don't know the answer to that, the ACLU has published one warrant that can give us some idea.

Filed in September 2012 as part of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) drug investigation, the warrant allows Michigan police to seize "historical information regarding call activity, 'phone...

When L.A. Noire launched back in 2011, much was made of the new motion-capture technology used to capture the in-game characters facial expressions. The company behind the tech, Depth Analysis, has now released a blooper reel of the game's voice actors messing up their dialogue. According to the company, each clip was generated as part of the MotionScan capturing process. If you've ever wanted to see computer-generated characters goofing — and their CGI counterparts' reactions to the mistakes — check out the five-minute video below.
