'Rainbow Six Siege' Live-Action Trailer Starring Idris Elba

18 November 2015 1:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a seven-year hiatus, the beloved Rainbow Six video game series returns next month with Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, which will be available December 1 on the PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One platforms. Today, Ubisoft has released a new live-action trailer and three featurettes for the upcoming game, which feature Idris Elba guiding us through the action. Here's what the Oscar-nominated actor had to say about his experience on this explosive set.

"Getting to work on a set with explosions and big destruction always adds an element of excitement. The Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege shoot was unique in that my character is at the eye of the storm during the chaos around him. In the game, walls can be shattered; ceilings and floors can be breached to change how players experience the game. My character walks the viewer through the destruction, while coming out unscathed on the other end. »

Check Out This Awesome Rainbow Six Siege Live Action Trailer

18 November 2015 12:19 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

I'm a sucker for good video game trailers and Rainbow Six Siege just got one of the coolest live action trailers yet! Come check it out!

The trailer is titled "Siege The Day" and is lead by actor Idris Elba talking about how one small move can change the tide in the game. What makes the trailer so cool is that Ubisoft notes it is an "actual live battle" taking place in an environment inspired by the house map within the game.

The trailer and the featurettes were shot over four days in Prague, directed by Park Pictures founder Seb Edwards along with Angus Wall, two-time Academy Award–winning film editor (The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and founder of Rock Paper Scissors and its sister company, VFX. Ubisoft worked with Los Angeles–based agency Omelet on development of the concept and overall creative direction and »

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six|Siege Chambers A New Round

16 November 2015 2:49 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

As the December 1 release date for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six|Siege draws ever closer, long-time fans are wrapping up their sci-fi, futuristic shooters, and their Fps battles in a galaxy far, far, away in preparation. R6|Siege promises to bring back the tactical squad shooter to its roots, and if the videos released so far are any indication, Ubisoft has done a magnificent job.

The series is best known for its brutal gameplay, including once a character is dead, they remain dead. Rainbow Six|Siege also introduces more environmental damage, meaning that squads can literally go through walls to secure their targets, which adds so many unique layers to planning and actual gameplay.

Here is the initial gameplay launch trailer from E3 2014:

As with previous Rainbow Six games, planning and communication with your squad plays an important role here. This is what separates R6 from other shooters. »

The 'Fallout 4' launch trailer is a thing of ruined, broken beauty

6 November 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's hard to believe that at the start of the year, "Fallout 4" was little more than a rumor. Bethesda's last major entry in the series, "Fallout 3," was one of the defining game experiences of the last decade, and they've set the bar very high for themselves. I didn't really enjoy the "New Vegas" follow-up, but it felt like half a game to me. When "Skyrim" came out, it reminded me of why "Fallout 3" was great, but it pulled me in even more, and I think if I were pressed, I'd have to name "Skyrim" as my favorite game of all time. I have so little time for playing games these days that when I do carve that time out for myself, I have to make sure I'm going to really enjoy the experience and get something out of it. It's got to be something I can return to more than once, »

For Carlton Cuse, Collaboration Is the Key to Creativity

27 October 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Carlton Cuse was starting out in the business, his office on the Warner Bros. lot was next to that of John Sacret Young, creator of “China Beach.” He spent hours at Young’s side, not only learning the craft of writing for television and features, but also about the process of showrunning. “He was very generous with me,” recalls Cuse. “And I appreciated that.”

That experience — as well as his later partnership with screenwriter Jeffrey Boam (the “Lethal Weapon” movies, “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”) — taught him the value of creative collaboration. As he worked his way up through the industry — from “The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.” and “Nash Bridges” to the groundbreaking “Lost” — he’s been paying it forward, again and again. The ranks of television’s top producers include many graduates of what Damon Lindelof jokingly calls the Carlton Cuse School of Showrunning: Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. »

Angela Bassett on Playing a Badass in ‘Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’ (Video)

5 October 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Angela Bassett is gearing up for battle in “Tom Clancy‘s Rainbow Six Siege.” The actress is no stranger to playing a badass on screen. She portrayed Secret Service director Lynn Jacobs in 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen” and CIA director Hayden Chase in the ABC series “Alias.” So, stepping into the role of Six, deputy director of the international Rainbow Six counter-terrorism unit, was a natural transition. “I think I have a little bit of experience with that … being the boss,” Bassett told TheWrap in a wide-ranging interview about the new video game, her role in FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” and. »

Lethal Weapon set to make the jump to the small screen with TV adaptation

3 October 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the reports this week that comic book Watchmen and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan are set to get the television treatment, you can now add 80’s action favourite Lethal Weapon into the mix, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Fox has reportedly put an order in to Warner Bros. TV from Forever scribe Matt Miller for a new series, which will be based on the hit 1987 film starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.

The television adaptation will revolve “around the unlikely partnership between a former Navy Seal and Texas cop who moves to Los Angeles after the death of his wife and baby and winds up teamed with an Lapd detective who must avoid stress at any cost because of a heart condition.”

Lethal Weapon became a franchise over subsequent years, with sequels in 1989, 1992 and 1998, and collectively grossed over $936 million worldwide. A fifth film has long been mooted, but has so far never come to fruition. »

Angela Bassett Teases ‘American Horror Story’s’ ‘Darkest Season’ Yet, Kissing Lady Gaga (Video)

29 September 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s no secret anthology series “American Horror Story” pushes boundaries with its sexually-charged scenes and brutal killings, especially last season in “Freak Show.” But series star Angela Bassett says Season 5, “American Horror Story: Hotel,” will be even more depraved. “There’s mystery, there’s intrigue, there’s innocence, there’s depravity, there’s things that go on in hotels behind closed doors,” Bassett told TheWrap in a recent sit-down about the FX series and her role as Six in “Tom Clancy‘s Rainbow Six Siege.” Bassett will be kicking butt when the Ubisoft video game hits stores on December 1, »

"Rainbow Six Siege" Won't Have A Campaign

29 September 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

First came the reveal that "Star Wars Battlefront" offers no single player campaign and little in the way of options for those not wanting to play multiplayer. Then EA revealed "Call of Duty: Black Ops III" will completely forgo a single player mode for its PS3 & 360 versions.

Now, Ubisoft has revealed that the upcoming "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" won't sport a single player campaign mode in any of its versions which hits stores December 1st. Speaking at Egx 2015 to PCGamesN, art director Scott Mitchell says:

"There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customise matches, so that's what we're offering on the single-player side of things.

It's a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you're unlocking the same »

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Beta Gets Off To A Shaky Start

25 September 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The highly-anticipated beta for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege hasn’t gotten off to a particularly good start. Reddit essentially exploded last night as those expecting their beta keys were left disappointed after not receiving it via email. However, the game’s community developer, Chase Straight, attempted to put out the flames by responding to fans and explaining the process and aims of the beta and why you, perhaps, may not have received a key just yet.

As you know, we are granting access to the Closed Beta in waves. We obviously want to get you access as quickly as possible (we want you to play and have fun!), but the focus of our testing right now is on player experience flow and matchmaking. By staggering beta access, we can better manage server stability as the player population ramps up, which is crucial to a great experience when the game launches December 1st. »

Paramount Fires Up Jack Ryan TV Series, Michael Bay To Produce

23 September 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tom Clancy’s venerable CIA agent Jack Ryan is on the cusp of getting his own TV series, after Paramount Pictures pitched the concept of bringing the action hero to the small screen. Deadline has the report, revealing that although the project is yet to find a network to call its own, multiple outlets have expressed an interest in snapping it up and ordering to series.

Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland – best known for their work on Lost and Bates Motel – are spearheading the TV adaptation, now that the studio has quietly retracted its franchise hopes following last year’s Shadow Recruit. As such, it’s nigh on confirmed that the role of Jack Ryan will be recast, and Paramount will be looking to fill the title role left vacant by Chris Pine sooner rather than later.

In fact, through the years, the character of Ryan has also been portrayed by Harrison Ford, »

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Gets A TV Series

23 September 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tom Clancy's iconic literary creation and cinematic hero Jack Ryan is set to return, albeit this time on the small screen.

"Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland are teaming with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount TV for a drama series based on Clancy's novels.

Conceived by Cuse and Roland based on Clancy's novels, the show won't be a direct adaptation but rather a new contemporary take on the character during his days as a CIA analyst following in the wake of his accident and recovery that sidelined him from the Navy.

Roland, Cuse, Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form and Lindsey Springer will executive produce. There has been a lot of interest in the project, with multiple outlets apparently bidding.

Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine have all tackled the role in five different films over the past twenty five years. »
