Life is Strange Video Game to Become a Movie

28 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT

When it comes to turning hit video games into movies, there doesn't appear to be a game over screen.


Legendary Films has a digital division called Legendary Digital Studios, and the latter arm are the ones developing a live-action movie based on Life is Strange, the hit indie video game that's also critically acclaimed for its storytelling and gameplay features.

In Life is Strange you play as a young female photographer named Max who discovers that she has the ability to control the flow of time, reversing it to cause events to play out in new alternatives. Max uses her time reversing powers to save the life of a friend, and the two of them become entagled in the mysterious disappearance of another teen from their hometown of Arcadia Bay.

It's a little bit like Twin Peaks meets The CW programming block, but by the way of quantum mechanics.

Justice League Dark Gets a 8-minute Preview

26 July 2016 4:11 PM, PDT

Justice League Dark started out as a DC comic book, taking the universe's magical and supernatural A-listers and putting them in their own group book. For a brief while Guillermo del Toro was championing his idea of a live-action movie, but that appears to be on hold in favour of Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman and Justice League flicks in the next few years.

With the release of DC's latest animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke, we now get a 8-minute preview of their next animated project: Justice League Dark. The team-up of DC's darksiders includes Zatanna, John Constantine, Etrigan the Demon, Swamp Thing, Black Orchid and Deadman, with cameos from Batman, Green Lantern and Superman as well.

The Jld producers have hired TV Constantine lead actor Matt Ryan to voice his animated counterpart, which is pretty much making him the go-to guy for any John Constantine work to be done. »

What Will the Movie Industry of 2040 Look Like?

26 July 2016 1:06 PM, PDT

This past weekend the 2016 San Diego Comic Con took place. On the biggest attendance day of the con, one of the events was a panel celebrating the 30th anniversary of Aliens, released on July 20, 1986. Seven thousand fans sat inside Hall H cheering on star Sigourney Weaver, director James Cameron and another half-dozen of the cast and producing talent behind Aliens.

On one hand, it's incredible to think that, 30 years after the release of Aliens, it would still prove to be an incredibly popular and often quoted movie. The impact of Aliens on Hollywood's sequel factory and action/adventure landscape cannot be dismissed.

On the other hand, can you imagine going to the Comic Con of 1986 and attending a panel celebrating the 30th anniversary of another sci-fi movie that's often credited for elevating its genre, Forbidden Planet? I can't help but think that a Forbidden Planet panel held in '86 would »
