Trials Fusion Online Multiplayer Arrives Early Next Year

2 hours ago

After keeping players in the dark for more than half a year now, Trials Fusion‘s multiplayer plans have finally been announced. It’s great news for those who like the game’s four player local multiplayer, as a similar mode will be available as a free update early next year for all platforms, and available on PC as a beta later this year.

Not content to simply add online support to the game’s existing multiplayer, the new Trials online multiplayer will allow up to eight gamers to play on newly designed eight lane tracks. Even better, you’ll no longer need to concern yourself with remembering which color bike you are, or which lane you’re riding in. Things could get a little confusing with eight players racing on the same screen, which is why each player will see themselves in the foreground, while all opponents will be seen in the background lanes. »

Casting Heats Up For Jessica Jones And Luke Cage

7 hours ago

The four-series deal between Marvel and Netflix is slowly edging closer to screens, with new names added to the casting shortlists for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. With the first of the four shows – Daredevil – already in production, Jones, Cage and Iron Fist are still to be cast, before the four characters come together for a Defenders mini-series.

As the second of the four series, Jessica Jones will be written and executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight), and features the titular character who essentially originated in the story of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. She was present when he was bitten by the radioactive spider, and was soon exposed to radiation herself in a car crash that killed her entire family. Adopted by the Jones family, she soon discovered she had superpowers. Eventually hanging up her superhero cape, she founded a private detective agency, through which she is continually, and reluctantly, drawn back into the superhero life. »

LittleBigPlanet 3 Review

22 hours ago

LittleBigPlanet has always been an ambitious series in terms of its purpose, which is to provide a user-friendly way for gamers to create and share all sorts of 2D platforming levels. Additional genres have also been added as the series has progressed, ranging from twin-stick shooters to kart racers.

Personally, while I love the series as a whole, it’s one that I think took a few tries to truly start reaching its potential. The original 2008 title, while a fun platformer, felt a bit basic in terms of its presentation and gameplay. 2011’s LittleBigPlanet 2 fixed all that, with numerous refinements and additions making it possible to include new features like cutscenes and different gameplay genres entirely. Thanks both to a dedicated fan base of level creators and numerous Dlc expansions, the sequel has enjoyed a very healthy lifespan compared to most other games, but many players have wondered what possibilities »

Exclusive Video Interview With The Cast And Director Of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

23 hours ago

The Hunger Games has quickly become one of the most recognizable cinematic franchises over the span of only two films. With the third outing, however, fans should expect a bit of a change, as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 doesn’t actually revolve around any games. Instead, it follows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) on her journey as a revolution’s symbol. It’s darker, more politically driven, and focuses more on propaganda than on the Capitol’s twisted ways of exploiting the games themselves.

While Mockingjay – Part 1 is visually striking at parts, I agree with our very own Sam Woolf, who likens it to a “waiting game” while still admiring how the film sets Part 2 up quite well. While I don’t necessarily think audiences benefit from the decision to split it into two parts, director Francis Lawrence makes sure the stars shine bright and carry us through the inevitable build-up. »

New Court Documents Reveal Additional Details On Krewella Lawsuit

23 hours ago

Court documents were filed today in the lawsuit concerning the Yousaf sisters, Yasmine and Jahan, and their former Krewella band member, Kris Trindl, who is suing them to the tune of $5 million. A lawyer for the siblings has called Trindl’s claims “baseless,” and has filed a counter-suit that states Trindl became an alcoholic during his time in the group and would often show up to performances under the influence.

Furthermore, the counter-suit says that he didn’t know how to DJ properly and would sometimes fake it while on stage. At some shows, the sisters would even have to unplug his mixer. The bad news doesn’t stop there, either, as the girls also claim that Trindl wasn’t much help in the studio and didn’t contribute very much to any of their tracks.

“Kris was unaware of the intervention beforehand and at the intervention, it was apparent that he was not sober, »

Krewella Will Say Goodbye This Sunday

21 November 2014 2:42 PM, PST

Yesterday, Krewella posted a rather cryptic message on their Facebook page, along with a strange photo. Boasting the words “Say Goodbye,” many took this to mean that the duo would be breaking up. However, thanks to a Tweet from Adventure Club, we now know that this odd little tease mostly likely packs a positive punch.

You can check out all the various clues in our gallery below, but the gist of it is that Krewella is probably going to be premiering their new song this Sunday live on Twitch, the title of which is “Say Goodbye.” It’s also looking like the track will be in response to their recent feud with former band member Chris Trindl.

Whatever this all turns out to be, if you’re a Krewella fan, you’re definitely going to want to tune in on Sunday to see what the girls have in store for us. »

Channing Tatum And Reid Carolin To Helm Ya Adaptation Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock

21 November 2014 2:14 PM, PST

The Weinstein Company adaptation of Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock has found its directors in Magic Mike‘s Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin. The pair, who wrote and produced both Mike pics, are also set to produce Matthew Quick’s young adult novel, under their Free Association production label, with Tatum eyeing up the lead role.

Based on the original book by Quick, Leonard Peacock tells the contemporary story of a teenager who takes a loaded pistol to school. Confronting his four best friends, he reveals hours of secrets leading up to the fateful moment. Should he take on a role, Tatum is thought to be considering the part of a heroic teacher who intervenes.

If the subject matter might not suit your tastes, then consider the author. Quick’s previous page-to-screen effort, Silver Linings Playbook, went on to score enormous successes both critically and financially. He’s an incredibly skilled »

Dallas Buyers Club’s Jean-Marc Vallee To Direct Amy Adams In Janis Joplin Biopic

21 November 2014 1:54 PM, PST

Today’s news isn’t exactly fresh, as Jean-Marc Vallee’s interest in helming a Janis Joplin biopic has been kicking around for some time. The Wild helmer spoke out months ago concerning the project he had assembled with Amy Adams in the lead as the infamous singer. Now, however, Deadline claims that it’s absolutely going ahead.

In the past, the untitled biopic had both Fernando Meirelles and Lee Daniels attached to direct from a script by Ron and Theresa Kounin-Terry. With Vallee the third in line to bring Adams’ long-awaited dream of portraying Joplin (she’s been involved in development for years) to the big screen, he’s bringing in familiar faces to help re-shape the existing script. Dallas Buyers Club‘s Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack will be writing a new draft. The pair will be aiming to keep the scope of the pic within the projected »

Ewan McGregor And Brenton Thwaites Go On The Lam In First Trailer For Son Of A Gun

21 November 2014 1:18 PM, PST

From first-time director Julius Avery, Son Of A Gun is an explosive action thriller exploring the aftermath of a prison break. Ewan McGregor tackles the lead as the charismatic Brendan, a manipulative criminal kingpin. Along for the ride as his sidekick is Brenton Thwaites’ sympathetic Jr. The pair of accomplices rustle up a way out of the Australian slammer and strike up a professional deal on the outside.

In September, we brought you the first clip, which served as a very brief introductory moment between the pair of convicts. Definitely a tease for the bigger picture, there’s now a ton more footage in the full-length trailer that expands upon the dangerous relationship Jr enters into with Brendan. There’s also a gold mine robbery and an impossibly gorgeous bit of love interest in the shape of Alicia Vikander thrown in for good measure. Well, it Is a heist flick. »

Watch The First Trailer For Nicole Kidman’s Desert Drama Strangerland

21 November 2014 12:51 PM, PST

Nicole Kidman’s first indie pic on Aussie soil sees the actress united with Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes for a dark tale of human survival. The brainchild of first-time director Kim Farrant, Strangerland is based on a script by Fiona Seres and Michael Kinirons, and has now unveiled its first trailer.

The moody drama picks up on Catherine (Kidman) and Matt Parker (Fiennes), a couple who relocate to the Australian desert with their family in tow. When their kids go missing in the vast desert, they must confront the terrible fate of what’s happened to the two teenagers. Reaching out to the community they’ve kept at arm’s length, they enlist local copper David (Weaving) to help with the search.

A hint of A Cry In The Dark? A smidgen of Jindabyne? The trailer points towards another solid trio of performances from the leading cast – and a particularly harrowing turn from Kidman. »

Goblins, Elves And Fairies Dominate First Trailer For Lucasfilm’s Strange Magic

21 November 2014 12:24 PM, PST

George Lucas might have sold off Lucasfilm for a hefty $4 billion, but that doesn’t mean his creative output has ceased. Prior to unloading Lucasfilm onto Disney, the iconic filmmaker had begun work on an animated musical feature loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Touted to be a “madcap fairy tale,” Strange Magic was only very recently revealed to the world. With its release date coming up fast, the first trailer has now dropped, courtesy of Yahoo!

For his first full-length feature, Oscar-winning director Gary Rydstrom has assembled a starry cast to provide vocal talents for his crew of goblins, elves and fairies. Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, Peter Stormare, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull and Elijah Kelley all make ‘appearances’ in this first preview.

Taking a glance at this first footage, the Shrek-inspired vibe suggests it’s being aimed at a younger market. »

Ninja Theory’s Hellblade Adorns This Month’s PlayStation Official Magazine Cover

21 November 2014 12:20 PM, PST

Over the last few weeks, we’ve gradually learned more about Ninja Theory’s PlayStation exclusive title, Hellblade, as the studio unveiled concise development diaries detailing some of the artistic inspiration behind the company’s next outing. A few days ago, we got a detailed look at the in-game battle system — one that will be inherently hardcore, apparently — and now Nt has showcased its approach to designing the cover art of December’s issue of PlayStation official magazine.

Taking to the PlayStation Blog, here’s what Communications Manager Dominic Matthews had to say:

Our whole ethos with Hellblade is to be open in our development, sharing as much of the game’s creation as we can. But it’s not just the fans that we want to be open with, it’s also the press. Back in September the editor of PlayStation Official Magazine came to visit the studio and »

7 Festival Favorite Horror Flicks To Look Out For In 2015

21 November 2014 12:17 PM, PST

After sitting through a year’s worth of horror movies, it’s time to start compiling my all-encapsulating “Best Of 2014″ and “Worst Of 2014″ awards lists, but before we get there, I’d like to highlight a few festival favorites that have yet to find a proper release. While most of the films I’ve loved have received public recognition in the same year they hit the circuit, like Stage Fright, there are a few Phenomenal films still waiting for their moment in the sun. While I can happily report most have reached distribution deals already, that still doesn’t mean they don’t deserve another bump to freshen your minds!

This year has already brought us creepy dolls, demonic board games, phallic monsters, musical horror – the list goes on – but I can promise you that there are still Plenty of treats that haven’t seen the light of day yet. »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Closes In On Brenton Thwaites

21 November 2014 11:55 AM, PST

Casting on the billion dollar swashbuckling series is getting well underway, with Maleficent‘s Brenton Thwaites now in Disney’s crosshairs for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Courtesy of The Wrap, who revealed the scoop exclusively, it seems the studio are looking to secure his fresh young presence to steer the flailing franchise into more lucrative waters.

Previous reports indicated that Thwaites was on a shortlist of up-and-coming actors in contention for the sought-after role. Alongside the young Aussie, Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Mitchell Hope, George Mackay, and Sam Keeley were all thought to be competing for the role of British soldier Henry.

After an appearance this year as the Prince in Sleeping Beauty reboot, Maleficent, and stellar turns in Oculus and The Giver, there’s no reason to doubt the rising star can’t tackle the grit of such a colossal franchise. And now that »

Bungie Describes Destiny’s Latest Update As “The Biggest Yet”

21 November 2014 9:24 AM, PST

In a weekly blog post, Bungie has labelled the recently-released patch for its share-world shooter Destiny as “the biggest yet.”

Weighing in at 2.2Gb in size, the update introduced an array of bug fixes in the studio’s space-faring adventure, all the while preparing the servers for the release of The Dark Below expansion in a couple of weeks.

“Update 1.0.3 was our biggest yet. We hit every major system that makes Destiny work with new content or bug killing agents.”

Perhaps the most enticing feature about this week’s patch — which went live across all platforms on Monday — is the return of the Iron Banner multiplayer event. Though many Guardians were left disappointed by its initial debut last month, Bungie has assured fans that version 2.0 is a bona fide challenge. One that seemingly ramps up the difficulty like never before.

Elsewhere in the update, the studio also took time to »

First Teaser Trailer For Jurassic World Is A Walk Down Memory Lane

21 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST

Hold onto your butts, folks, for the first teaser trailer for Jurassic World has stomped its way online.

More teaser than out-and-out trailer (it’s understood Universal will reveal the footage in full on November 27), the brief clip is a callback to the seminal, Spielbergian scene from the original Jurassic Park, which saw each glass of water ripple ominously as the Tyrannosaur Rex approached. Fast forward twenty-two years and it seems director Colin Trevorrow is keeping a lid on the dinos until next week; plus, it’s more than likely that the studio is simply drawing attention to the upcoming reboot with this bite-sized snippet.

Rather than bombard us with a hoard of stills from Jurassic World, Universal’s marketing campaign has been rather unique hitherto, what with the recent viral site along with a virtual map of the titular attraction. Taking place on the infamous Isla Nebular, Trevorrow’s »

21 November 2014 8:50 AM, PST

Disney is moving full steam ahead with a remake of its 1977 live-action/animation hybrid Pete’s Dragon, and today brings news that the studio is in talks with Jurassic World actress Bryce Dallas Howard in hopes that she’ll take on a major role in the pic.

Final casting has been taking place as the remake ramps up to shoot in New Zealand next January through April. Robert Redford, Oona Laurence,and Oakes Fegley are all already set for lead roles, and David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) is currently attached to direct, working from a script he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks.

This won’t be the same Pete’s Dragon we all grew up with, however. The musical numbers have been cut out entirely, and the pic is set against the backdrop of loggers cutting down a forest. Pete (Fegley), orphaned after his parents died in a car crash, »

Doctor Who’s Matt Smith To Star In Patient Zero

21 November 2014 8:35 AM, PST

Since leaving the massively popular British sci-fi series Doctor Who in 2013, Matt Smith has been racking up an impressive number of major roles in buzzy tentpoles like Terminator: Genisys and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and now the actor has added one more exciting project to his schedule. Deadline reports Smith will star in Screen Gems’ pandemic thriller Patient Zero opposite Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer.

In the pic, an unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies has transformed its hosts into a new species fueled by violence. One human survivor (Smith), inexplicably immune to the horrific virus, possesses the ability to communicate with this new species, which makes him the only person capable of spearheading a hunt for the cause of the virus. When his wife becomes infected, the man must race against time to find Patient Zero and extract a cure from them.

New TV Spot For Fifty Shades Of Grey Doesn’t Do Things By Half

21 November 2014 8:26 AM, PST

Hot on the seductive heels of last week’s full-length trailer, Focus Features has unveiled a new TV spot for Fifty Shades of Grey that teases some never-before-seen footage.

Following an extensive period of silence on Sam Taylor-Johnson’s anticipated adaptation, it appears as though the marketing campaign is beginning to fire on all cylinders as we draw ever closer to the film’s release in February (Valentine’s Day, to be specific).

Charting the tale of love and lust between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey (played here by Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, respectively), Fifty Shades of Grey took the world by storm when it released three years ago, selling a staggering 100 million copies in the process — because who needs coherent prose and good grammar, right?

Still, in the digital age, it’s hard to escape the shadow of E.L. James’ record-breaking trilogy, and should Sam Taylor-Johnson’s upcoming »
