Unconfirmed, but this is supposedly the body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26.
He was one of the men that bombed Boston.

REVIEW: ‘Oblivion’ | by Bill Arceneaux
I have great affection for David Lynch’s Dune. It’s a movie that barely explains itself, but keeps throwing stuff at you anyways. Sure, The Original Star Wars Trilogy didn’t feel the need to spell everything out either, but it would at least establish and ground things to make the audience comfortable. Dune,on the other hand, expects you to have done some reading beforehand. Despite that problem, I really dig the flick. It’s a classic sci-fi adventure with a weirdo modern (at the time) edge. It has a real “you just had to be there to understand” feel to it, and, knowing that I can never go back and “understand”, makes melove it even more. (CLICK HERE TO READ MORE)

The studios are losing billions because the DVD market has declined and being replaced by a [less profitable] option.
