Hellboy’s David Harbour describes the reboot as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary”

As Lionsgate gears up to begin production on its R-rated Hellboy reboot, new lead David Harbour has been chatting to Variety about the film, describing it as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary” and explaining what drew him to the project.

“Superhero movies are the mythos of modern America,” said the Stranger Things star. “The ancient Greeks had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, and we have Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman. They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation. These movies have been of a certain brand. With Deadpool and Logan, they are trying to do different things. So we are trying to do our own brand of that. I was really excited by that concept — to make a real monster movie that’s dark and scary and about the end of the world.”

Interview: Marvel’s Runaways’ Resident Evil Dad Talks Balancing The Pride and Fatherhood

Every teenager goes through a faze where they think their parents are evil, but you never see irrefutable proof that they actually are. Yet that’s exactly the situation the Marvel’s Runaways find themselves in. Hulu’s adaptation of the hit comic book series takes up the story of six seemingly normal teenagers who discover that their parents are not who they say they are. What the Runaways discover is that their parents are in fact apart of an evil organization known as ‘The Pride’. This Marvel comics’s adaptation is a hit in and of itself, largely in part of what

Video Game Review – Doom Vfr

Shaun Munro reviews Doom Vfr…

What’s that, a Vr game based on a much-loved IP that’s released at a reasonable price, and it’s actually good? Trust Bethesda to be the ones to do it, after recently defying a heap of industry skepticism regarding their ability to pull off a full-fat Vr version of Skyrim.

Though Doom Vfr isn’t, as many hoped, a full Vr reworking of last year’s surprisingly excellent franchise reboot, it is nevertheless a snappy, blood-soaked three-hour thrill-ride sure to please any Vr owners looking to get some extra use from their doubtless dust-covered Psvr Aim controllers.

Right off the bat, this bite-sized mini-campaign touts an incredible feeling of immersion, even if the intensity is constantly mitigated by how powerful the player feels at almost all times. Don’t expect to be quaking in your boots and filled with sweaty-palmed terror as you

Planet of the Apes: The Last Frontier, how the movie and game industries are converging, and where we might be headed next

The line between films and video games has grown increasingly thin in recent years. The phrase, “like a video game” used to be brandished as an insult towards films with more action than plot. But about a decade or so ago, the tide turned, as video games became appreciated for increasingly compelling storylines, and for their use of top-drawer acting talent which made the characters much more believable.

Classic games such as Prince of Persia, Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed actually inspired films to be made around their franchise, instead of the other way around. Sure, few of these titles did too well with the critics, but audiences just keep on coming back for games-to-films adaptations. Hollywood seems only too happy to oblige them, with more in the pipeline. Call of Duty is earmarked for late 2018, and Tomb Raider is scheduled to be the world’s first video-game-to-movie-reboot in the spring.

‘Vampariah’ VOD Review

Stars: Kelly Lou Dennis, Aureen Almario, Alex Benjamin, I-Li Chang Brice, Jason Bustos, Gemma Padua Calderon, Kevin Camia, Bo Campbell, Hilton Jamal Day, Gabi Dayers, Arlene Joie Deleon, Michael Dorado, Roczane Enriquez | Written and Directed by Matthew Abaya

Vampire movies are ten-a-penny these days: from the sparkly variety to the emo, leather-clad type, we’ve had a myriad of different fanged foes in the movies. But one subcategory of vampire that hasn’t had the kind of exposure its Western brethren have is the aswang… “The what?” you may ask. The aswang – a monster borne of Filipino folklore that has traits of the Westernised version of the vampire, but has also been said to incorporate other monstrous attributes, like that of the werewolf and ghoul.

In Vampariah the aswang are a race of vampire, living in the forest (where they’ve historically been said to live in Filipino legend) who,

Are big-budget, single-player videogames in trouble?

Ryan Lambie Dec 1, 2017

EA's boss says "linear" games are less popular with gamers than they once were. Is the end nigh for cinematic games like Uncharted?

Huge games that last for dozens of hours. Mobile games that can fill a few idle minutes. Shooter epics that take in small armies of players, and intimate experiences that pit a single mind against a fiendish puzzle. Technology has given rise to a multitude of genres and all kinds of videogames - far more than anyone could have even dreamed of back when the medium was still in its infancy in the 1970s.

In recent months, however, there's the question of whether a very particular kind of videogame can survive in an industry where replayability and continued revenue are becoming ever more important for a studio's bottom line. We're talking about single-player games - the big,

Hellboy Reboot Gets a 2019 Release Date

Hellboy Reboot Gets a 2019 Release Date
Hellboy will be making his way back to the big screen in just over a year. Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment, who have partnered for the production of the upcoming Hellboy reboot, have locked down a January 11, 2019, release date for the movie. This date was initially reported back in September but, at the time, Lionsgate said that the date was inaccurate and that no date had been decided on. Apparently, they liked the date anyway and have placed Hellboy as the first highly-anticipated movie to be released in 2019.

January, historically, has been something of a dumping ground for studios. However, in recent years, more and more blockbuster-level movies are being released and studios are having a tougher time cramming them into the summer movie season or desirable holiday release dates. So, what used to be a wholly terrible month for movie fans has seen more quality releases in recent years. Hellboy

Mega Man 11 announced, first trailer

Ryan Lambie Dec 5, 2017

Capcom has finally announced Mega Man 11 - and it looks rather good. Here's the first trailer...

Update: Capcom's Mega Man 30th anniversary stream kicked off last night at 7pm UK time, and as expected, it contained some good news for fans of the Blue Bomber. For the first time since 2010, we'll be getting a main-line sequel to the classic action-platformer series, with Mega Man 11 due out some time next year.

The sequel will mark a slight change of direction, too, with the 8-bit, pixel aesthetic of Mega Man 9 and 10 giving way to an anime-style, hand-drawn look that brings it closer to something like Street Fighter V's use of 2.5D.

Otherwise, the platforming action's the same as always, with fast-paced run-and-gun levels giving way to rock-hard-looking bosses. Mega Man fans will notice plenty of nods to the past,

Night Of The Living Dead: Rebirth Trailer Rises From The Grave

As is the case with any genre or subgenre, the key to allowing it to live on is to examine it from different perspectives and hopefully break some new ground. For the past fifteen years or so, zombies – and, to a lesser extent, vampires that sparkle – have been all the rage. But after digesting them in countless movies, video games and TV shows, even this longtime Resident Evil fan has admittedly experienced fatigue.

Of course, none of this would’ve been possible if George Romero didn’t pave the way back in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead. In the time since, he’d concocted several beloved sequels, each of which infused social commentary with unimaginable horror. That being said, it’s no wonder why the late director is still able to make new fans to this day.

Now, I’m not sure if there’s a record for such

Video Game Review – Resident Evil: Revelations Collection on Nintendo Switch

Shaun Munro reviews Resident Evil: Revelations Collection on Nintendo Switch…

It was just a matter of time before the Resident Evil franchise made some sort of an appearance on the Nintendo Switch, and these new ports of the two Revelations titles, initially released in 2012 and 2015 respectively, feel like a totally natural fit for the platform.

Though not all aspects of the two games have aged particularly well, and the simple act of playing them may feel pretty jarring following the release of Resident Evil 7 earlier this year, for the most part Capcom has done a bang-up job of bringing the titles to the console-handheld hybrid. The appeal for the hardcore crowd, of course, will speak for itself.

To speak generally, both games are a joy to play on the Switch, in large part thanks to how snugly they feel on this hardware. The controls, especially in handheld mode, are such a natural fit,

The evolution of handheld videogaming in 17 consoles

Ryan Lambie Nov 16, 2017

There's more to handhelds than the Game Boy. We take a look at how mobile gaming has changed over the decades...

It goes without saying that handheld games have come a long way over the past 35 or-so years. From electronic bleepy things that were little more than glorified calculators, portable technology is now almost unrecognisable in 2017.

The nominations for the Game Awards have been revealed and it should come to a surprise by no one that Nintendo is leading the way in nominations this year! Here are all the nominations and how to vote!

On December 7, 2017, 2017's video games, their studios, and the people who play them will be honored during The Game Awards 2017, hosted by Geoff Keighley. This year's event should have the gaming world buzzing, as Nintendo is finally in the limelight with about 24 nominations. No other studio can hold that distinction, but Nintendo. It's a long time coming for the once-booming company.
