Games nobody talks about anymore: Operation Wolf

27 February 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Released in 1987, Operation Wolf not only ushered in an era of gun games, but tapped into the decade's macho action movies, Ryan writes...

Some of the biggest arcade machines of the 80s - both in terms of popularity and physical bulk - were about bringing cinematic fantasies to life. Did you have childhood dreams of taking the controls of an X-Wing like Luke Skywalker? Atari's Star Wars let you do just that. Did you want to be Tom Cruise in Top Gun? Then Sega's nausea-inducing After Burner had you covered.

But what if you wanted to be a tough military, gun-toting hero, like Sly in Rambo: First Blood Part II, Arnold in Commando, or to a lesser extent, Chuck in Missing In Action? Lots of 80s games had military themes, like Capcom's Commando (which had nothing to do with the film), Snk's Ikari Warriors or Konami's Green Beret.

The definitive military hard-man game, »

Minority Report: leads found for TV sequel

27 February 2015 1:16 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The TV follow-up to Minority Report has found its leads: Anchorman 2's Meagan Good and Inside Llewyn Davies' Stark Sands

We recently heard that Daniel London would appear in the Minority Report series, reprising his role from the film as Wally the caretaker for the TV series set ten years after Tom Cruise brought the whole PreCrime system crashing down.

Now, we know who the two lead characters will be played by. They look a bit like this…

The lead role has long been listed as Detective Lara Vega, who we now know will be played by Meagan Good of Think Like A Man, Anchorman 2 and Brick. Her character is a detective who’s ‘not afraid to break a few rules.’ The action of the series will see her helping a former Precog Dash, who still needs help reintegrating into society ten years after the events of film. »

Minority Report Gets 2 For 1 On Precogs

27 February 2015 12:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rather than spread the casting net a little wider in search for some actual twins, Fox have found a fella to play both for the upcoming Minority Report TV show, that will follow on from the 2002 film. EW have got the skinny that Stark Sands, through a good amount of camera work and clever jiggery-pokery will be taking the precognitive roles of twin brothers Arthur, and lead character, Dash.

Set ten years after the first film, Minority Report: The TV Show (definitely not the title), will see one party of the precognitives, Dash, struggle to block out his dark visions of the future. The burden will come as a blessing to a female detective that crosses paths with the gifted gent and will use him to find answers to her past, as well as crack a case every week or so.

Considering that Stark (no relation to the iron-clad »

And the beat goes on folks... We may as well create the Twitter hashtag #BlackActorsInPilotSeasonDemand Today's casting announcement comes from Fox. The network is developing a small screen version of the sci-fi movie based on the 1956 Philip K. Dick science fiction short story, "The Minority Report," which starred Tom Cruise, and was directed by Steven Spielberg. Fox's TV series version will be set 10 years after the events of the film, which concluded with law enforcement’s Precrime division being disbanded. In the show, a female detective who is haunted by her past, teams up with a Precog that's still plagued by visions (similar to the movie, although the genders of each character has been swapped). Announced just moments ago, Meagan Good has been cast to star as the female detective - Lara Vega. No word yet on who will play the Precog, although we know that the character is male. »

Wh Smith's 1988 videogame promo vid is a thing of beauty

24 February 2015 3:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Advertising the wealth of videogames on offer in 1988, Wh Smith's promo video is 45 minutes of retro majesty...

If you're looking for an illustration of how much things have changed in videogame culture over the past quarter of a century, look no further than this wonderful video from 1988.

British shop chain Wh Smith put together a VHS tape, designed to promote the range of videogames it would be stacking in its shelf through the year. From our current vantage point, it offers a mind-boggling array of electronic music, overwrought sales patter and gratuitous computer graphics.

Games advertised include conversions of arcade hits like Super Hang On and Out Run, and 16-bit RPGs like Dungeon Master. Our favourite moments? How about this wild bit of poetry, read out as Konami's shooter Salamander unfolds on the screen:

Director Shoots Down 'Mission: Impossible 5' Production Woes as We Wait for Film's First Trailer

23 February 2015 1:49 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mission: Impossible 5 hits theaters on July 31 and yet Paramount hasn't offered up a trailer for the fifth installment in the popular franchise, which will see Tom Cruise back again as Ethan Hunt. In an article suggesting production troubles, The Hollywood Reporter suggested production had been shut down so Christopher McQuarrie and a mysteriously unnamed (and reportedly unpaid) writer could rework the film's ending. THR's sources differ in their take on the situation, one suggesting the group is "scrambling" to get things finished while another says, "Chris, Tom Cruise and a third person wanted to take a minute to get from what they thought was a good place to a more perfect place." This last quote is what McQuarrie clearly endorses as The Playlist quotes a tweet from McQuarrie that has since been deleted in which he wrote "filming never wrapped and we took a short break to prep the finale properly. »

Mission: Impossible 5: Tom Cruise stars in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5, which recently had its release date moved forward to July 31. But does the action thriller need a new ending? A recent report claimed production shut down for "a week or so... because the film's ending was deemed unsatisfactory," adding that writer/director Christopher McQuarrie would be working "with a writer friend whose identity remains a mystery." However, McQuarrie himself appeared to quash the rumor via social media.

Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington are teaming up again for MGM's long-in-development remake of "The Magnificent Seven" (the 1960 American western directed by John Sturges, which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai"). As recently as 2012, Tom Cruise was attached to star in the remake, although, at the time, there was no director attached. It was said that Cruise had long been interested in saddling up for a "Magnificent Seven" remake, but was not in his then immediate plans.

Mission: Impossible 5 Rewrites Its Big Finale

22 February 2015 10:24 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It was just last month that we learned Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise and the rest of the Mission: Impossible 5 team were racing to finish the film that much more quickly as the release date had, in an unusual move, been shifted forward to this July from a planned December release. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, McQuarrie and co. halted production for a week in order to rewrite the finale.Such delays are not unheard of on big films, but with the ticking clock on the new Mission: Impossible – which is still in production, by the way – it’s somewhat surprising to learn of the break. Still, it allows for McQuarrie, Cruise and a reported unnamed third writer to make the big finale of the film that much better. While you place your bets on whom this shadowy third figure might be, McQuarrie, with typical wit, took to Twitter »

Christopher McQuarrie denies report that Paramount wants to reshoot Mission: Impossible 5 finale

21 February 2015 12:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday it was reported by THR that production had been shut down on Mission: Impossible 5 in order to provide time for director Christopher McQuarrie to come up with a “new and improved finale” for the latest chapter of the blockbuster spy series.

According to the initial report, Paramount executives were disappointed with the ending to the film and were demanding reshoots to the finale. Well, it seems that might not be the case after all, as McQuarrie has now taken to Twitter to debunk the story, stating that filming had never wrapped, and the plan was to take “a short break to prep the finale properly”.

Mission: Impossible 5 is set for release on July 31st, with Tom Cruise in joined by fellow franchise veterans eremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames and new additions Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), Sean Harris (Prometheus) and Alec Baldwin (Still Alice).

5 Terrible Oscar Hosts (and Their Worst Jokes)

21 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Chris Rock (2005) The worst joke: "If you want Tom Cruise and all you can get is Jude Law, wait!" The rest of the night: Chris Rock is one of our greatest stand-up comedians, and though his material as Oscar host wasn’t inherently terrible – set the same jokes up at the Comedy Cellar and it would probably go in a totally different direction – here was a case where the talent just didn’t fit the crowd. From the moment Rock made it onstage, he was rushing through his material, skipping over pauses for laughter and applause whenever he sensed a joke wasn’t landing. Even if the bits themselves were good, Rock didn’t handle the lack of an audience response particularly well. His more obvious whiffs came when he poked fun at a very-prolific Jude Law (disclaimer: it was 2005) and at actors who always seem to get picked second (in a bit of self-deprecation, »

Mission Impossible 5 halts filming to sort new ending

21 February 2015 10:29 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Production has halted on Mission Impossible 5 as the film's ending has been dubbed "unsatisfactory."

Paramount has already brought forward the Tom Cruise movie's release date from Christmas 2015 to July 31st.

According to The Hollywood Reporter production in London on the film has been shut down "for a week or so" as a better ending is thought up.

It is reported director Christopher McQuarrie will now meet with an unnamed writer friend to create the film's conclusion - although the writer will remain unnamed and unpaid.

With just five months until the film's release, one will have to be agreed on and filmed sharpish but a source has said that producers can't be too concerned with the problem as they wouldn't have brought forward the film's release date.
