We’ve already seen a few images from the upcoming digital feature Halo: Nightfall [see here], and coinciding with its panel at the San Diego Comic-Con International today, we’ve now got a banner, as well as some first look footage…

When he and his team are caught in a horrific biological attack, they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artifact, where they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives.

Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Nightfall is Locke’s origin story which will lend insight and understanding into the character he becomes in Halo 5: Guardians.

Alex Kurtzman has pretty much confirmed his old partner's comments from earlier this week that Sony remains undecided about the future of the Spider-Man franchise, namely its spin-offs, at the moment with everything still uncertain:

"Everybody is still figuring it out. It’s all up for grabs, right now. We’re just trying to figure it out. Everything is still on the table, right now. Because it’s a universe outside of the Spider-Man universe, even though it’s connected to it, those movies have to stand on their own. »

24: Live Another Day Actress Joins The Cast Of Star Wars Episode VII

17 July 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Latino-Review, Christina Chong (who was recently named as the lead actress in Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's live-action Halo: Nightfall) has landed a role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII. There's no word on who she will be playing, but as the production is shooting in the UK, it shouldn't really come as too much of a surprise that they're scooping up a few addition British talents.  The site don't have any additional details on who the actress will play, but looking at some of the work she's done in past could indicate that she'll have some action scenes to tackle! We'll be sure to keep you updated, but considering the movie was initially criticised for a lack of women and diversity, they certainly seem to be taking things in the right direction. What do you guys think?  »

Falling Skies season 4 episode 2 review: The Eye

30 June 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Falling Skies' real-world elements are a better hook than its sci-fi fantasy, argues Ron...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 The Eye

When Karen was a crucial member of the Espheni forces, their lapses in judgment made sense. After all, Karen might have been smart and knew the ways of the human, but she also had all the downfalls of the human, especially her connection to Hal Mason and company. Even with Karen gone, it seems as though the menacing alien collective that has invaded the Earth—skitters, fishheads, bugs, mechs, and mega-mechs—is obsessed with Tom Mason rather than, say, the Volm, their long-time enemies who are aiding the humans in their guerrilla war versus the Eshpheni conquest machine.

Of the many things going on in the show, the least interesting to me has to be the story of Lexi, played as an adult by Scarlett Byrne (Pansy Parkinson »

Producer Ridley Scott is currently in the process of producing a Halo web-series for Bungie, and at E3 we learned that the title of the show will be Halo: Nightfall.

"Good Wife" Actor Joins "Halo" Film

15 May 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mike Colter ("The Good Wife," "The Following") is set to star in the "Halo" live-action digital feature project for 343 Industries, Xbox Entertainment Studios and Scott Free Productions.

Not to be confused with the Steven Spielberg-produced "Halo" TV series in development, this film is being penned by "Prison Break" creator Paul Scheuring and is expected to debut before the end of the year.

The movie will follow a similar format to the "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" web series and follows a 26th century surgically-enhanced super soldier, though not the famed Master Chief of the video game series.

Colter is expected to play Marlowe, a rising star in a futuristic army who is troubled by aspects of the military industrial complex he inhabits. Approaching combat situations with caution and logic, he inspires loyalty in his fellow Spartans.

Sergio Mimica-Gezzan helms the film which Ridley Scott and David Zucker will executive produce. »
