There’s A “Very Good Chance” Daniel Craig Will Return For Bond 25, Says Naomie Harris

7 hours ago

It’s now been well over a year since the last James Bond film, Spectre, hit theaters and we still haven’t heard much about the next entry yet. Bond 25, as it’s being called, is being shrouded in much secrecy (which isn’t terribly surprising), so much so that we can’t even say for certain whether or not Daniel Craig will be back to reprise the role. He’s bounced back and forth on the issue more times than we can count, or keep track of, and it seems that he always has a different answer whenever asked about it.

The actor doesn’t seem ready to make his mind up at the moment but if we’re to believe his co-star Naomie Harris, Craig won’t be going anywhere when it comes time to make the next James Bond movie. She recently spoke with the BBC »

Logan Director James Mangold Doesn’t Want To See Hugh Jackman Replaced As Wolverine

7 hours ago

Hugh Jackman has made it clear on numerous occasions now that he won’t ever return to the role of Wolverine after Logan, but it’s hard to imagine that the character will remain on the shelf forever. We’ve had three different actors play Spider-Man and multiple big screen versions of Batman and Superman, and while Jackman has been portraying the clawed mutant for 17 years now, it’s easy to picture someone else taking over before too long.

However, in the interview up above, Logan director James Mangold says that he doesn’t believe anyone should play the iconic hero once Jackman hangs up his claws. That’s an interesting comment, but one that it’s hard to imagine 20th Century Fox will agree with as they look at the future of the X-Men. After all, money talks in Hollywood and the character brings in the big bucks for the studio. »

James Gunn’s R-Rated Idea For A Hitman Movie Was Turned Down By Producers

7 hours ago

Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed were supposed to break the video game movie curse, but both ended up being major disappointments last year. However, when you look back at previous adaptations, two which stand out as being particularly bad are Hitman and Agent 47.

The first was R-rated and the second went down the PG-13 route, and neither were very successful. They each made a lot of really poor creative decisions, to put it lightly, and while the video game series is doing quite well, it’s now hard to escape the feeling that we’re never going to see a decent big screen take on the property.

Someone who we imagine probably could have done a pretty good job with Hitman though is James Gunn, and he recently revealed on social media that he tried to pitch an R-rated version at one point before being shot down by producers.

Ben Affleck Breaks His Silence On The Batman

8 hours ago

If you’re a Batfan, then today was probably a pretty good day. It all began when Matt Reeves announced that he’d be directing The Batman after all, despite walking away from it last week. Warner Bros. then followed that up with both the reveal of a Nightwing movie, and confirmation that Ben Affleck remained on board to star as the Caped Crusader for the character’s next outing.

Now, to make things even more clear, the actor has broken the silence himself via social media, welcoming Reeves to the project by Tweeting out the message below.

Welcome to the Batcave, @MattReevesLA pic.twitter.com/JsB4sGGux2

Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) February 24, 2017

If that doesn’t put to bed any rumors of Affleck departing The Batman, then we don’t know what will. Granted, this doesn’t mean that he won’t vacate the role after he’s done with Reeves’ film, »

An Unaltered Version Of The Original Star Wars Trilogy May Be Released This Year

10 hours ago

Ever since George Lucas sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney, fans have been hoping that we might see the original, unaltered trilogy re-released in some form. As you surely know, over the years, Lucas continued to tinker with the movies, often upsetting many with the changes he made. Some of those alterations were minor (Ewoks suddenly being able to blink), while others were major enough to cause serious backlash (Han shooting first) or ridicule (Darth Vader’s “Noooo!” as he dispatches of The Emperor).

Well, according to a new report, we could see the original Star Wars movies in their unaltered form released at some point in 2017 to celebrate the franchise’s 40th anniversary. These will be the original edits of the 1977, 1980, and 1983 cuts of the first Star Wars trilogy, meaning that fans can finally watch A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as »

Major Story Spoilers Revealed In Soundtrack Track List For Logan

10 hours ago

The marketing campaign for Logan has smartly managed to avoid giving away too many spoilers, but the track list for the official soundtrack sadly can’t say the same. How Fox has managed to let this leak online so early is baffling, but these things happen, and you can find the spoilers below if you’re interested.

Not only do these spell out pretty much the entire plot, but they confirm the presence of a character named X-24. We know that Laura is X-23, so who or what X-24 is remains to be seen, but it sounds like this villain will be formidable enough to take on Wolverine one on one in Logan.

One thing the soundtrack doesn’t reveal is whether or not the titular hero lives or dies, so at least that’s still a mystery going into the film. There’s also no mention of Professor X’s fate, »

Another New Speedster Debuts In Images From Next Week’s Episode Of The Flash

10 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

In this week’s episode of The Flash, Barry Allen and company paid a visit to Earth-2 in order to rescue Harrison Wells from Gorilla Grodd. Now that that’s done, the psychic gorilla looks set to return to Central City with an army by his side to take over his former home and destroy the Scarlet Speedster.

Clearly unable to take him down alone, the Fastest Man Alive will need all the help he can get, hence why he’s enlisted the likes of Kid-Flash, Jesse Quick, Vibe, and Earth-19 hero Gypsy, who will be bringing some unexpected help along with her in the form of the Accelerated Man.

For more on what to expect from this episode of The Flash, here’s the synopsis for the appropriately titled “Attack on Central City”:

Predicting The 89th Annual Academy Awards

11 hours ago

We’ve finally come to the big moment where I lay down my best predictions as to who will be taking home Oscars in all 24 categories. This year is a little different from last, in that it’s pretty much been a one-track award season for a certain little musical (as opposed to last year, where things were a little uncertain heading into the big night), but, as always, there’s plenty of room for surprises to happen, so let’s dive right in.

Best Live Action Short

Ennemis Intérieurs

La Femme et le Tgv

Silent Nights

Sing

Timecode

Best Documentary Short

Extremis

4.1 Miles

Joe’s Violin

Watani: My Homeland

The White Helmets

Best Animated Short

Blind Vaysha

Borrowed Time

Pear Cider and Cigarettes

Pearl

Piper

As usual, there’s nothing to really base a good prediction on for the short categories, aside from the buzz surrounding the nominees. This year, »

Assassin’s Creed Rogue And Borderlands 2 Highlight This Week’s Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Additions

11 hours ago

Following in the footsteps of recent additions Grand Theft Auto IV and Hitman: Absolution, another pair of big Xbox 360 titles have joined the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program. Future Games With Gold offering Borderlands 2 and late-franchise sequel Assassin’s Creed Rogue highlight the latest batch of additions.

Originally released in 2014, Assassin’s Creed Rogue was launched alongside the technically flawed Assassin’s Creed Unity. Unlike that game, though, this iteration of the franchise was only released on last-gen consoles and Windows PC. Those that already moved on from the 360 may have missed their first chance at it, but now all Xbox One owners can step into the shoes of Assassin turned Templar Shay Patrick Cormac. If you’re intrigued, you can find our original review here.

As previously mentioned, we already knew that Borderlands 2 was getting the backwards compatibility treatment due to its placement in the March Games With Gold line-up. »

Exclusive Interview: Joshua Williamson Talks The Flash And Teases More For The Rogues

12 hours ago

It’s probably safe to assume that The Flash is currently a higher priority for DC than he has been for some time, when you factor in he has a hit show on The CW and is (hopefully) headlining a solo film before the decade is out. As such, they made sure they had the right minds behind his latest comic book series that launched as part of the Rebirth era – and they most assuredly found the perfect writer in Joshua Williamson.

What perhaps makes Williamson’s run on The Flash remarkable is that while it’s in no way a carbon copy of the TV series, it nails much of the same criteria. In other words, it simultaneously functions well at being a superhero story, a science fiction story and a drama with rich, developed characters.

For me, the author’s greatest contribution to the ongoing mythos (at least »

Liam Neeson-Fronted Thriller The Commuter Bumped To 2018

12 hours ago

From the moment Pierre Morel’s Taken unlocked a very particular set of skills in Liam Neeson, the actor’s résumé has been a roller-coaster ride of triumphant highs (The Grey) and disappointing lows (Takens 2 and 3). But a patchy record has in no way cooled Neeson’s interest in the action genre, as he’ll soon be back, back, back, as an unassuming insurance salesman for The Commuter.

Pitched as North by Northwest meets Strangers on a TrainJaume Collet-Serra’s high-speed thriller was originally slated for a release in October, but we now have confirmation that The Commuter‘s journey won’t begin in earnest until January 12th, 2018. That’s a date it currently shares with Paramount’s animated flick Sherlock Gnomes, White Boy Rick and The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which was hit with a delay of its own following Dylan O’Brien’s serious set accident. »

WWII Pic The Catcher Was A Spy Adds Sienna Miller And Giancarlo Giannini

12 hours ago

Giancarlo Giannini and The Lost City of Z‘s Sienna Miller are the latest stars to climb aboard The Catcher Was a Spy, Ben Lewin’s WWII drama poised to take the incredible true story of former Mlb player Moe Berg and pitch it for the big screen.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Giannini and Miller now join an ensemble comprised of Ant-Man‘s Paul Rudd, Guy Pearce, Paul Giamatti and Jeff Daniels. Dawidoff’s biography, The Catcher Was A Spy: The Mysterious Life of Moe Berg, has been labeled as the primary source of inspiration, creatively speaking, as it tells the story of Berg’s double life as a multilingual pro baseball player, who spent his time away from the field operating as an agent for the Office of Strategic Services – the U.S. intelligence agency that went on to become the CIA we know today – during »

Dracula’s Castle Looms Large On The First Poster For Netflix’s Castlevania Series

13 hours ago

When Netflix formally announced plans to revive Konami’s beloved Castlevania franchise in the form of a two-part animated series, gamers were beside themselves with excitement.

This is, after all, one of the most iconic series in the industry’s history, and with producer Adi Shankar (Dredd) promising a “super violent” show designed to “flip the vampire sub-genre on its head,” it’s small wonder why Netflix’s Castlevania reboot has already generated so much interest online. Currently simmering in the bowels of development, the online streamer has confirmed plans to roll out the show’s first season later in 2017, and the suitably moody first poster has arrived to give us some clue as to what to expect from Shankar and Frederator Studios’ “dark, satirical” spin on the Belmont clan and their gruelling quest to slay the infamous Vlad Dracula Tepe.

The Walking Dead Clip Finds Eugene In A Sticky Situation

13 hours ago

Poor Eugene just can’t catch a break, can he?

After being coerced into creating a bullet for Rosita’s failed assassination attempt on Negan in the midseason finale of The Walking Dead, everyone’s favorite mullet-sporting Southern gent was taken prisoner by the aforementioned villain, and carted off to the Saviors’ compound. You’d be forgiven for thinking Negan had something very nasty planned for the terrified Alexandrian, but there might just be a way out for Eugene – even if it means working for the man that brutally murdered two of his friends right in front of him.

AMC has released a new clip today from this Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, and in it, Negan gets right to work intimidating his prisoner with the aid of Lucille. After putting on a show, the sadistic leader of the Saviors tells Eugene – who’s clutching a jar of »

Netflix’s Music Saga Continues With The Get Down Part II In April

13 hours ago

Since the turn of the year, Netflix has steadily filled its slate of original content for the first half of 2017. Iron Fist, for instance, kicks things off with an almighty punch on March 17th, and will be followed in quick succession by new seasons of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Bill Nye Saves the World, which is a relative newcomer to the Netflix pantheon.

Another series that has now booked its placed on that bustling lineup is The Get Down. It’ll return with half a dozen new episodes on April 7th, and we understand Part II will check in on hip-hop supergroup The Get Down Brothers in 1978, a full year after their electrifying debut. Mylene Cruz (Herizen F. Guardiola) and Books (Justice Smith) will once again anchor the drama as two lovestruck musicians swept up in the cultural upheaval at the time. »

All Future Halo Fps Titles Will Have Split-Screen, Says 343 Industries

13 hours ago

With today’s industry seemingly intent on moving towards an increasingly homogenized scenario where all forms of multiplayer are confined to online play rather than the more traditional couch co-op, it’s hardly surprising that certain well-known series have dropped the feature entirely. One particular example that no doubt lingers in the minds of many is Halo 5: Guardians, which did away with allowing fans to play together through split-screen.

If you can cast your mind back two years to when 343 Industries’ follow-up to Halo 4 first launched, you’ll likely remember the criticism the studio received for omitting the feature, with development director Frank O’Connor having said at the time that the decision wasn’t made lightly, but needed to happen due to split-screen not being “feasible with [how] the engine works.” Considering Halo 5 ended up managing to maintain a near-constant 60 frames per second during its single-player mode, including a »

Warner Bros. Confirms Ben Affleck Still Set To Star In The Batman

13 hours ago

It’s been a very, very busy day for the Caped Crusader, with news hitting the web at an alarming rate. First off, the final piece of The Batman directing saga finally fell into place as we heard that Matt Reeves had apparently changed his mind, signing on to produce and helm the film after walking away from it last week. Striking while the iron was still hot, Warner Bros. then announced that they’re developing a Nightwing movie with Chris McKay attached.

That’s enough to send any Batfan into a frenzy, but the rollercoaster ride doesn’t end there, as we’re now hearing that despite rumors to the contrary, Ben Affleck remains on board to star in The Batman. For months now, there had been speculation that he might walk, and while he still may after this outing is over, it seems that for the time being at least, »

Full Trailer For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Reportedly On The Horizon

13 hours ago

Can’t get enough of Baby Groot? We don’t blame you and, according to Trailer Track, we won’t have to wait too much longer before clocking eyes on the third (and final?) trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Citing a listing from Alberta Film Ratings, Tt notes that the latest full-length promo for Guardians 2 is already in the can, and will run for two minutes and 20 seconds. It’ll likely screen before Logan (March 3rd) or, in the more likely scenario, Bill Condon’s live-action Beauty and the Beast on March 17th.

Assuming online chatter holds true, the former will herald the final trailer for Wonder Woman, so we’re inclined to believe that the Powers That Be over at Marvel and Disney are planning to hold fire until late next month. Whatever the case, we will, as always, have full coverage for you right here on We Got This Covered. »

Ys Origin Review

14 hours ago

It’s a pretty tough ask for a game released way back in 2006 to relaunch on modern consoles without losing a little bit of its luster. Case in point: Nihon Falcom’s critically venerated action-rpg Ys Origin. Though times have indeed changed, this prequel to the Ys series is a great example of how well crafted and timeless game design can often age graciously and gracefully; it may not be the most well known action-rpg around, but I’m hard-pressed to think of many that are as fastidiously constructed, particularly from the mid-noughties.

The once prosperous and titular land of Ys has been plunged into chaos; mighty demons have overrun the kingdom, leaving only death and bedlam in their wake. Amidst all the turmoil, the people of Ys retreat into the protection of the holiest of temples atop the highest of mountains. However, this just wasn’t enough. The demonic »

Nightwing Movie Takes Flight At Warner Bros. With Chris McKay

14 hours ago

From Bruce Wayne to Dick Grayson, THR is reporting that The Lego Batman Movie‘s Chris McKay has entered talks to helm a Nightwing spinoff.

Negotiations are officially underway and if a deal were to place, McKay will be directing from a script penned by Bill Dubuque (The Accountant). At this time, it’s unclear as to how exactly the Nightwing solo movie will fit into the DC Extended Universe. While the character of Robin – or rather his vandalized suit – was referenced in last year’s Batman V Superman, and though Zack Snyder was notoriously coy about the character’s identity throughout development, it was later confirmed to be Jason Todd.

Richard John “Dick” Grayson represents a different proposition altogether. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Nightwing was first introduced as a trusty new sidekick to Gotham’s Caped Crusader, before shedding the Robin mantle to become the city’s elusive Nightwing. »
