CBS places pilot order for Rush Hour TV series, along with Joe Time and Super Clyde

1 hour ago

Back in October, it was revealed that Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town) was developing a pilot for a TV series based upon the action buddy comedy franchise Rush Hour, and now it has been announced that CBS has placed a pilot order.

The series will follow a similar plot to the first movie – albeit without Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker – with Entertainment Weekly stating that the pilot will revolve around “a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police officer who is assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky African-American Lapd officer who has no interest in a partner.”

As well as Rush Hour, CBS has also placed orders for family man comedy Joe Time, and Super Clyde, which was originally intended to feature Rupert Grint as a fast food worker who comes into money and decides to put it to good use fighting crime. »

Cut content potentially discovered in Super Smash Bros. Wii U

1 hour ago

The website sourcegaming has apparently data-mined Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and found what appears to be a plethora of information that implies a bit of content was removed from the game.

First of all, there is a stock holder that seems to show the viruses from Dr. Mario. The stock holder is the same that other enemies, like Ridley and Metal Face have, so the presence of the viruses seems to suggest Dr. Mario was going to receive a stage and they were going to function as hazards or boss characters.

The data that was mined also has references to ‘rhythm’, which has led people to believe there was supposed to be some sort of representation from the Rhythm Heaven series in the game. This fits alongside the original Smash Bros. leak, Gematsu, which stated the Chorus Kids from Rhythm Heaven would be playable.

Another interesting reference is »

New UK trailer and poster for Wild Card starring Jason Statham

1 hour ago

A new UK trailer and poster have arrived online for Wild Card, the latest thriller starring Jason Statham (The Expendables), and you can check them both out below…

Wild Card is a quasi-remake of 1986 thriller Heat, which was initially written by William Goldman. The original film starred Burt Reynolds and was directed by Dick Richards (who replaced Robert Altman) and was a critical and box-office flop. Goldman described the film as “One of my major disasters”.

It’s production is something of a legend, as Richards and Reynolds got into a fight that left Reynolds injured and need of an ambulance, and later director Richards suffered a fall from a camera crane. But while that film suffered, the new version sticks closer to Goldman’s original vision, rather than what the film ended up becoming.

“It was one of those classic horror story [productions],“ West told Den of Geek in 2013, “which »

2 hours ago

As a part of their earnings call, EA has announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition is Bioware’s most successful launch ever. While sales were not revealed, EA stated that the single-player component of the game “has been enjoyed for more than 113 million hours”.

Speaking to GameSpot, an EA spokesperson did say that the ‘most successful launch’ was based on units sold, but they aren’t currently divulging the number.

However, all isn’t completely well with Electronic Arts. The company revealed that for their third quarter, ending on December 31st, they posted $1.4billion in net revenue – down on the $1.6billion they made during this period last year. For the three month period, the company revealed they had made a profit of $388million, which again was down on the $398million they made last year.

Yet for the holiday quarter, EA did say it was the biggest publisher on the Xbox One »

2 hours ago

Roger Moore ranks himself as the fourth best Bond

5 hours ago

Roger Moore has been reflecting on his time as Ian Fleming’s super spy James Bond during a chat with Fox News, and as the conversation turned to current 007 Daniel Craig, Moore took the opportunity to chime in on the debate over who’s the best Bond.

“I believe [Daniel Craig is] an excellent Bond,” said Moore. “He’s much stronger than I am. I think he does a hell of a good job of it. He and Sean are, I think, undoubtedly the best Bonds.”

Asked where he’d rank himself, Moore responded: “I think a little bit behind George Lazenby, I suppose.”

So, it seems Moore isn’t much of a fan of Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan

How would you rank Moore as Bond? Let us know your thoughts…

Nintendo back in profit thanks to Smash Bros., Pokemon sales

6 hours ago

Nintendo have released new sales figures which show their Christmas was good – if not amazing – and was enough to put them back in profit.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire together sold a whopping 9.35m units, while Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3Ds managed a very impressive 6.19m. These two franchises managed to push Nintendo back into the clear, despite relatively weak hardware sales.

On the Wii U, Smash Bros. sold 3.39m copies, while Mario Kart 8 continues to perform well, sitting pretty on 4.77m. The image below shows the revealed sales figures when compared to the final sales figures of Nintendo’s last generation of consoles.

According to Nintendo, the New 3Ds and 3Ds Xl is off to a “good start” in Japan, but the 3Ds saw a significant decrease in sales year-on-year. Meanwhile, the Wii U sold 3.03m from April to December, which is up on th 2.41m they sold the year before. »

Comic Book Review – Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit #1

8 hours ago

Villordsutch reviews Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit #1…

In a world where a rhino can be gene-spliced with a dog, freakish animals are everywhere, and the Creature Cops have to deal with them! From vicious gator-snakes to cute panda-dogs, these animal cops think they’ve seen it all… until they discover a nest of illegal hybrids that resemble mythological griffins, and suddenly find themselves on the trail of a death cult with even darker plans…

From the pen of Rob Anderson (Rex, Zombie Killer) comes the world of genetically spliced everyday pets for cosmetic gratification, for example Panda-dogs, or pets that have been designed for other purposes like the horned-mastiff which has been bred for fighting – not to mention animals in the wild than have managed to cross breed with the spliced animals so we have Bull-bears.  The world is becoming a strange mess and the people who deal with this »
