Chris Pratt Could Lead Disney's Indiana Jones Revival

13 hours ago

We've heard rumblings about Disney wanting to restart the Indiana Jones franchise, with varying reports, but now comes word about who the house of mouse is looking to cast in the lead role...Chris Pratt.  Come inside for the scoop!  

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm many fans were wondering what would happen to the Indiana Jones franchise.  We've heard all kinds of rumors since the acquisition, but with their focus on Star Wars at the moment, nothing seems to have come of anything just yet.  Now Deadline is reporting that Chris Pratt is being looked at to potentially take over the iconic whip: 

I’m cautioned that while things are very early, I hear the studio has set its sights on Chris Pratt as the swashbuckling archaeologist they hope to build the new franchise around, the role made famous by Harrison Ford in Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Wisely, Deadline »

Chris Weitz Will Finish up the First Star Wars Standalone Film

14 hours ago

Looks like Disney/Lucasfilm has decided upon the next writer to help finish out the script for Gareth Edwards' Star Wars standalone film due out in 2016.  Come inside for the details. 

Not too long ago we reported on why Gary Whitta left the upcoming Star Wars spin-off, having finished his work on the script.  At the time we have confirmed Slashfilm's report that Simon Kinberg was being brought on to polish things up, and now THR is reporting that Chris Weitz is working on the script:

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the latest scribe headed to a galaxy far, far away is Chris Weitz, whose credits include the 2002 film About A Boy and Disney's upcoming Cinderella

He will replace Gary Whitta, who exited the Lucasfilm/Disney project earlier this month after he completed a first draft.

While this may seem to contradict our reports from before, that's not necessarily the case. »

Mortal Kombat X Reptile Gameplay Revealed

16 hours ago

We keep getting new characters announced for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X and today it was Reptiles turn!

The teaser is just that, a teaser. We see a lot of Reptiles stock moves, then he goes in for the kill (or should I say Fatality) and the trailer fades to black. Perhaps it was too violent for this feed? Who knows. We will get the official marked trailer as soon as we are able!

The gameplay still looks swift and clean, and it's nice to see the minor approvements to the gameplay overall. The environment even looks thrilling, and has provided some exciting twists. I know I totally suck at fighting games, but this is one of the hot releases this year for me!

Mortal Kombat X will be released in April!

Fantastic Four Reboot Gets an Official Trailer...Finally!

22 hours ago

Fox's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot from Josh Trank has been the subject of many rumors due to the fact that we've seen next to nothing of the film.  That changes today as the first official trailer has finally released.  Come inside to check it out!

There's been a lot of negativity coming out of this project, and while we may never know the full truth of them, a lot of things have spread due to the film's secrecy and utter lack of information for eager fans.  Hell, until yesterday's interview from Collider, we hadn't even seen images from the film (and technically these were just set pics), which is highly unusual considering it's a Summer film.  While many were expecting a Super Bowl trailer to be our first look, thankfully the studio isn't making us wait and have released the first trailer!

Emma Watson Joins Disney's Live Action Beauty & The Beast

26 January 2015 4:52 PM, PST

Harry Potter's Emma Watson is jumping into another magical world, this one crafted by Disney as she's been cast as Belle in an upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.  

Disney is pursuing the idea of adapting their old classic cartoons into live-action films (Cinderella is hitting later this year), and their next endeavor will bring Beauty and the Beast to life.  Today thye've announced that Emma Watson, best known from the Harry Potter franchise, will portray the new version of Belle (the "beauty") in the upcoming film.  

If you were looking for more details, then you'll be a little disappointed as that's about all the information Disney is willing to part with for the moment.  The film is directed by Bill Condon and filming is set to begin later this year.  Obviously there's still the casting of the Beast we have to wait for, but for now, »

David Tennant Playing The Purple Man in Marvel's A.K.A. Jesscia Jones

26 January 2015 11:23 AM, PST

So we’re just learning of news about Marvel’s Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica JonesDavid Tennant of Doctor Who and Gracepoint will be taking on the role of Zebediah Killgrave better known as The Purple Man.

 

            For those unfamiliar with the character The Purple Man is able to control people through pheromones and suggestion. This character plays a very pivotal role in the history of the Jessica Jones and the Daredevil character if they choose to go with the storyline I’m referring to. This is exciting news and Tennant will be playing a very dark and twisted character but the man is very capable of tackling the role.

 

Without revealing too many spoilers I think we’re in for some very good t.v. with these new Netflix series especially with this kind of star power with an actor like Tennant. A.K.A. Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter debuts »

Evolve Preview: Seriously Awesome Fun

26 January 2015 9:16 AM, PST

I’ve gotten a chance to play Evolve several times now, including the two testing phases it went through. The first reveal was rather awesome, but I wanted to see more. That is when I got into the first testing phase, and let’s just say it didn’t work. Then I was invited to participate in the second phase and my goodness am I glad I got invited to this one! I think I had the game booted up the entire time it was playable, and I was sad when it said “sorry, it’s over.”

Based on the first phase I was honestly going to pass the game up. It was a mess, and what little I did get to play wasn’t working too well. With the second, well everything was fixed, and while we still had some restrictions to it, the game was a ton of fun! »

Mythbusters To Tackle Doom In Next Episode

25 January 2015 10:46 PM, PST

If you are a fan of Doom then Mythbusters is going to be extremely cool next weekend!

The video got locked behind an age gate for some reason, but unlike the game Mythbusters will not be exploiting the monsters of Doom. I bet they probably are not even opening portals to Hell, but then again it is the Mythbusters and they are trying to break the myths of the greatest Fps title ever. Doom!

They will for sure be asking if a person can really hold a bunch of health packs and weapons, and how much they can move around with them. Based on the trailer they will be asking how a person can walk through a dark scary hallway too. The producers note that they will use Doom 3 Bfg edition for inspiration, and who knows what else will come of it!

The only bad news is that so far »
