With a muscular shape and aggressive stance, the Harley-Davidson LiveWire is unlike anything that's come before. The LiveWire is the latest example of the innovative spirit of the most iconic motorcycle brand in the world. Its permanent magnetic electric motor provides instant torque, so a flick of the wrist takes you from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds without any of the shifting or clutch work required by its combustion-based cousins. The motor sits below the battery to lower the center of gravity for easier handling, a fully adjustable Showa suspension helps improve the ride further, ABS and Traction Control for enhanced cornering and Brembo brakes ensure you can get it stopped in a hurry. The bike also has a 4.3 inch, full-color touchscreen. Built-in LTE connectivity and the H-D Connect service gives you remote access to bike vitals, its location on a map, and security alerts if it's bumped or moved through the Harley-Davidson app. Available in three color options, the LiveWire is coming to dealerships this August.
Presented by Harley-Davidson.

Computer generated graphics get all the attention, but practical effects still provide a level of believable illusion that computers can't match.

Director Ari Aster took the horror genre in a new direction in 2018 with Hereditary and looks to do the same again with his new film Midsommar. Eschewing the dark look typical of most horror films, Midsommar has a bright, softly lit style to it, and takes place during summer — certainly not the look we're used to.

Midsommar comes to theaters Summer 2019.
