Having been in development for some time now, MTV has officially announced that it has given a ten-episode series order to a smalls creen adaptation of the 90s slasher Scream, with the show set to get underway in October.

21 hours ago

One of the Xbox One’s most anticipated games of the holiday season is Halo: The Master Chief Collection – with it, comes Halo 2: Anniversary. The rebirth of what some would say was Halo’s greatest moment.

To celebrate the release of Halo 2: Anniversary, 343 Studios showcased an amazing launch trailer, created from a compilation of Halo 2’s epic remastered cutscenes.

The trailer focuses heavily on the character of The Arbiter, who is being punished by the villainous Prophets for his failure to protect the Halo ring. The trailer does an excellent job of showcasing the graphical horsepower of the Xbox One and the immense difference between this version and the timely original, now heralded by many as a classic.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection releases on November 11th, exclusively for Xbox One. The game features a jam packed offering, including Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4, all remastered for the new console, »

Neil Patrick Harris to appear in American Horror Story: Freak Show

22 hours ago

Neil Patrick Harris, best known for his role as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, has joined the cast of American Horror Story: Freak Show. He will appear in Freak Show’s 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while his real life husband David Burtka will turn up in the season finale for “a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse.”

Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of the show, has worked with Neil Patrick Harris in the past and have been looking to work together again. Murphy said a few months ago about a collaboration with Harris on Freak Show: “He had very specific ideas for what he wanted to do, and I had very specific ideas, so we’re working on melding those.”

Looks like the perfect role was arranged for Harris on the show.

American Horror Story: Freak Show airs Wednesdays, 10 p.m. on FX. »

Fox developing live-action Peter Pan TV series, will follow The Lost Boys after leaving Neverland

23 hours ago

Fox is currently developing a Peter Pan TV series but with a twist. The project – entitled League of Pan – will follow the Lost Boys fifteen years after leaving Neverland and living in the real world. Here’s the pitch from Deadline:

It picks up the Lost Boys fifteen years after they left Neverland. Now men and very much estranged, the Lost Boys are forced back together when they realize someone is killing them off one by one. To find out who and why and stay alive, they’ll have to get past the bitter rivalries and bad blood that forced them out of paradise and rediscover the magic that made them fearless. This time in the very real world of contemporary Los Angeles.

The series is described in its logline as a “soapy thriller” that is “grounded and edgy” and sounds rather ridiculous, but it could turn out to be fun. »

Book Review – The Abyss Beyond Dreams by Peter F. Hamilton

23 hours ago

Michelle Herbert reviews The Abyss Beyond Dreams by Peter F. Hamilton…

The Abyss Beyond Dreams is part of The Commonwealth Series; if you have never read this series, then don’t worry this novel will not spoil them for you. In fact it may make you want to go back and read the others: Pandora’s Star and Judas Unchained are the first two novels set at the beginning of The Commonwealth. These are followed by The Void Trilogy: The Dreaming Void, The Temporal Void and The Evolutionary Void which are set in their reality’s present day. The Abyss Beyond Dreams begins roughly around 200 years before The Void Trilogy starts. Will it matter what order you read these books in? Probably not. I read The Void Trilogy before The Commonwealth Saga and found that just like this new volume, each novel fits together like a jigsaw, bringing clarity to »

Japanese sales chart shows in favour of old gen

23 hours ago

The Japanese sales charts for the previous week have some very interesting results to show – The Evil Within debuted strongly, though the PS3 version sold more than the PS4 version. Admittedly, this isn’t all that surprising – the PS4 is selling rather poorly in Japan on the whole.

Hardware sales also showcased a sad state of affairs for the newest generation of consoles – home consoles at least anyway. As is the way in Japan, the handheld consoles dominated the sales chart, with the New Nintendo 3Ds taking the top spot. The Ps Vita however enjoyed some success as it sold more than the 3Ds Xl. The PS4 took the 5th spot, coming behind almost every handheld console, but above every home console. The Xbox One is looking at a, again a rather admittedly unsurprising, poor show though, lagging behind even the Ps Vita TV.

Here’s the sales breakdown (thanks playstationlifestyle. »

Thomas Roach on whether Black Widow could be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron….

There was big news from Marvel yesterday as the studio announced its Phase Three line up which certainly has lots of fans excited, as well as giving us more information with which to speculate. Now we know what films will be coming out over the next few years, we can try to predict certain things that will happen, and one thing I am now predicting is that Black Widow will be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is just speculation but hear me out…

Marvel have already confirmed that by the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we shall have a new roster of characters in the Avengers line up. So we can expect there to be a massive falling out between characters which causes them to leave the team, or that we »

New poster for Foxcatcher featuring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo

29 October 2014 2:31 PM, PDT

Sony Classics has released a new poster for director Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) awards hopeful Foxcatcher, which showcases stars Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street), Steve Carell (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers)…

When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

29 October 2014 1:35 PM, PDT

Yesterday Marvel Studios announced its line-up for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with sequels Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and the two-part Avengers: Infinity War set to be joined by new franchises Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Inhumans.
