A Camera Lost at the Bottom of the Sea Finds Its Owner, Three Years Later

When a lost camera washed up on a beach in Taiwan, it was covered with so many barnacles that it looked like a rock.

Miraculously, it was still intact, dry inside, and in working condition thanks to a waterproof case that definitely deserves a five-star review on Amazon. A group of schoolchildren and their teacher discovered the camera while on an outing to clean up the beach, the BBC reports. The teacher, Park Lee, and his students decided to get the film developed and upload the pictures to Facebook in hopes of finding who the camera had belonged to. The post went viral and the owner was identified in just a day.

The owner of the camera was Serina Tsubakihara, a Japanese university student who had lost it in September 2015 while vacationing on the island of Ishigaki, Okinawa, Japan—155 miles from where it was found. She was scuba diving and snapping underwater pics when she dropped the camera into the depths to come to the aid of a friend who had run out of air. Over the next three years, the camera went on a long underwater journey that took it all the way to Taiwan.

Lee told the BBC that the class was unsure whether it was a violation of privacy to look at the photos and post them on Facebook, but it seemed like the only way to find the owner. After seeing that some of the pictures were from Japan, they guessed that the owner might be Japanese and posted their online message in Japanese and Chinese. Ultimately, the post got over 10,000 shares.

"I am so lucky and happy to have this miracle opportunity to feel kindness of people in my life," Tsubakihara told the BBC. "Those pictures remind me of old memories and brought me back to those." She plans to go to Taiwan in June to pick up her camera and thank its saviors.

Even Marvel Studios's Co-President is Confused by Avengers 4 Teaser Photo

Marvel fans have been left baffled ​by a teaser photo the Russo Brothers released, which possibly has the name of the new Avengers movie hidden in the picture.

The photo shows co-director Joe Russo sitting on an empty stage while working on his laptop, with the caption, "Look hard ..."

Fans have been speculating the past few days on what the hidden message in the photo is and what it reveals.

​​Turns out, fans are not the only ones playing "Where's Waldo," as even Marvel Studios's co-president Louis D’Esposito cannot even figure out what he's supposed to be looking at. 

D'Esposito expressed his confusion in a hilarious tweet, which also reveals he's being left in the dark by the directors.

We do not know for sure what we're looking hard for. A majority of fans are assuming it's the title of the movie—especially since the ​Russo Brothers said the name will be revealed after the Captain Marvel trailer was released—but it may also be a hint to the story or something else. ​​

Perhaps, it's the rocket engine prop in the photo that also featured in Infinity War.

Nevertheless, everything will be revealed soon when Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3, 2019, and when all the promo for it begins (which will hopefully be soon).

First Venom Clip Features Tom Hardy and Riz Ahmed

Venom is making its solo debut when the movie hits theaters on October 5, 2018. Fans have been anxiously anticipating further footage from the movie after ​its trailer was released in April. Now, IGN has released a clip featuring Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) in a heated confrontation.

As the clip shows, the conversation is cordial until Brock, a.k.a. Venom, gets into some of the allegations against the Life Foundation and their deadly pharmaceutical tests.

Drake and his team immediately shut down the interview. The clip ends with Brock being shoved away from Drake as he asks him if he's being threatened; Drake responds with a cryptic, "Have a nice life!"

Of course, the clip is significant because Brock has been obsessed with taking down Carlton Drake. Brock seems to be having a hard time cracking the story, and as his investigation starts to ruin his personal and journalistic life, he discovers and ultimately merges with the Venom symbiote.

Even though Venom would traditionally be considered the villain in a Spider-Man film, Ahmed's character will be even more villainous as an evil corrupt scientist.

And while Venom has ​a PG-13 rating, the movie is expected to be incredibly violent, with more than one decapitation rumored.
