Open Source is off to Cologne! Join the crew as they look over the big announcements from Gamescom 2014, including the is-it-isn’t-it Tomb Raider exclusivity and that playable teaser. Can Quantum Break and The Order: 1886 both live up to their ambitious premise? With no new games announced by Microsoft, is it make or break time for the Xbox One? Will Sony ever stop ramming Destiny down people’s throats? And will Michael Bay keep making Transformers movies until his last breath? So many questions, so little time.
Also this week: a passionate plug for Gone Home, the continued rise of the indie game, and a definitive answer (sort-of) on whether Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is worth a watch.
As always, any questions, comments or suggestions can be sent in to email@example.com. What were your views on Gamescom 2014 and what upcoming games are you most looking forward to? »

Sony has released a new trailer for Fury, the upcoming World War II tank thriller from director David Ayer (Sabotage), which sees Brad Pitt (Inglorious Basterds) leading a cast that also includes Shia Labeouf (Transformers), Michael Pena (American Hustle), Logan Lerman (Noah), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead). Check it out below…
April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
Fury is set for release in the UK on October 24th and will open in the States on November 14th.

Ever wonder what would happen if, say, someone inexplicably gave “Transformers” director Michael Bay control over a Pixar animated movie? Well it mind end up looking a little something like this, with plenty of explosions and what have you. I mean, it’s Michael Bay. If things aren’t blowing up, it wouldn’t be Michael Bay. That’s why there is such a thing as a “Michael Bay movie,” know what I mean? Here’s a movie trailer for Pixar’s 2009 flick “Up” if it was directed by Bay. “Up,” as you’ll recall, is a heartwarming tale of an old curmudgeon and an, er, generously well-fed Asian kid as they go in search of adventure and other stuff that, in real life would probably get the old guy arrested and the kid put in foster care. But hey, this is animation, so you know, don’t call Cps! »
Well, this is one of the more inexplicable mash-up videos as yet coughed forth from the bowels of the Internet: some genius/insane person on YouTube decided to hypothesize what would happen if Michael Bay had directed Disney/Pixar's Oscar-winning animated fable "Up." And it's pretty amazing.
At first, the clip is pretty standard: lots of lens flares from unknowable locations, with familiar scenes from "Up" coated in that weird blue filter that all of Michael Bay's movies seem to have and then the hilarious, excessive punch line in the form of explosions. Lots and lots of explosions. (There's also, amazingly, a shot from the second "Transformers" movie, I believe, randomly sprinkled in there.)

The summer blockbuster season isn't what it used to be. We no longer have to wait until July for Hollywood's epic spectacles, with studios now lining up their tentpole releases as early as March - this year we saw the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theatres before the calendar had ticked over to May.
With The Expendables 3 out in cinemas now and pretty much bringing the curtain down on the summer's biggest releases, Digital Spy has flicked back through the calendar to rank this summer's box office big guns from worst to best.
Despite an ever-expanding cast list that hoovered up Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone's third Expendables outing landed with more of a whimper than a bang. Franchise favourites like Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren were criminally underused, leaving us »
Greetings everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief. It’s been a bit of a tough week for movie, TV, and entertainment fans, as not only was it a slow news week in general, but we also lost two incredible Hollywood legends. Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams both passed away, and left behind incredible legacies that we’ll talk about a bit later on.
In other news, we have several studios playing Release Date Jamboree and announcing openings for upcoming films and franchise sequels, we have word on the future of Damon Lindelof and HBO’s controversial new series The Leftovers, updates on Marvel’s The Inhumans and DC’s Aquaman, and a glimmer of hope that Michael Bay might finally move on from the moneymaking machines known as the Transformers franchise.
Before we mourn the loss of those who’ve fallen this week, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, »

Shia Labeouf has not had the best of times since shooting David Ayer’s World War II movie Fury in the U.K. last year. In December, artist Daniel Clowes claimed the actor’s short film HowardCantour.com plagiarized his 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano, and in June, police led Labeouf away in handcuffs from a Broadway performance of Cabaret because of his allegedly disruptive behavior.
But Fury writer-director David Ayer has nothing but nice things to say about the Transformers star, who voluntarily sought treatment for alcohol addiction following the Cabaret incident “He’s amazing, a freakin’ gifted guy,” says Ayer. »

Nearly two years ago, we heard about Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Tom Hardy teaming up to produce an animal trafficking drama, in the same vein as Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, that takes a dramatic from look at everything from the ground war on poachers in the African savanna to how animal material ends up in the fancy fashion houses of Paris. There's been no news since then, but now Deadline reports Mission: Impossible 5 writer Will Staples will script another untitled film set up at Warner Bros. about the same topic with Hardy, DiCaprio and Maguire still possibly taking roles in an ensemble cast. Staples previously worked writing video games like Call of Duty and Need for Speed, but he's hit Hollywood with a Black Listed script called King of Heists, which will star Jeremy Renner, and a project called Myth that will be produced by Transformers franchise producer »

The disaster movie hits the next level a week from now with the release of Into the Storm, a drama that sees a tornado rip through a small American town on the day of high school graduation. Directed by James Cameron protégé Steven Quale, the film introduces the found footage aesthetic to a story of a father (Richard Armitage) desperately trying to save his son (Max Deacon). There are multiple perspectives juggled, too, notably a pair of redneck daredevils getting close to the action in a bid to make a viral video and a professional storm-chasing outfit led by Matt Walsh's documentary maker. Think of it as Twister turned up to 11.
"The journey all these characters go through, I was hoping to do that in a more intimate way to show a disaster as opposed to the wide, epic, sweeping shots that a cinematic movie would traditionally do," Quale tells Digital Spy. »
Power Rangers: An updated version of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be hitting the big screen on July 22, 2016. That's the release date for Power Rangers, which will reboot the 1990s TV show (and the 1995 movie version, above) for a new generation, based on a story by Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek). Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) are writing the script about a group of high school kids who must harness extraterrestrial powers to save the world. The Interview: Recently we heard that upcoming comedy The Interview, starring James Franco and Seth Rogen as a TV personality and his producer who are hired by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, had been pushed from October to December 25. Now comes word that...

The original Bad Boys flick helped push Martin Lawrence onto the Hollywood stage, not to mention put a rocket under the career of a certain Will Smith. A bloated sequel followed with the two stars busy on various movies such as National Security and Men In Black. However things have cooled for the wisecracking pair in recent years. Following vehicles like Blue Streak and Black Knight, Lawrence became entombed in the prosthetics of Big Momma’S House and Smith’s focus on launching his kids led to M.Night Shyamalan turkey After Earth. Appearing on Conan O’ Brien’s talkshow, the half of the equation whose profile didn’t go nuclear responded to a question about a third instalment of the cop action series:
I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it’s real; they’re working on the script, they’re getting close, and it all looks good. »

Michael Bay's Transformers movies are like a kid who's trying not to swear. He's saying "shoot" and "fudge", and we know there's a little vulgarian aching to get out, but instead he sounds like an idiot. Transformers films pay the bills, but the Bad Boys movies (especially Bad Boys II), feel like Bay's true artistic expression. The second film has bags of ecstasy being smuggled inside of a dead woman's fake breasts. Later, the heroes invade Cuba. That's how delightfully bonkers Bad Boys II is, and it makes me want to see if and how Bay could top himself when freed from the confines of a PG-13 rating. Unhinged Michael Bay is the best Michael Bay. There's always been word of Bad Boys 3, but now it looks like it might be inching closer to reality. Hit the jump for more.

Saban Brands is not only moving forward with their big-screen “Power Rangers” reboot, but they’ve already set a release date for it. For you crazy kids that still remember those brightly colored teenage saviors of the universe, you can now mark July 22, 2016 on your calender as the triumphant return date of the Rangers. As for what it’ll be about, from the sounds of it it’s essentially the premise of the original show: From a story by Executive Producer Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek, Amazing Spider-man 2) and screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-men: First Class, Thor) comes a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world. The announcement doesn’t come with a cast list, and as far as I know, »
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently the number-one movie in America — a development largely viewed like it's a plot by the evil Shredder himself. Technically directed by Jonathan Liebesman, this blockbuster reboot bears the stamp of its superstar producer, Transformers maestro Michael Bay: a sturdy children's-toy concept sits uncomfortably alongside destructive urban combat and awkward double entendres about turtle erections. Garnering bad reviews from both film critics and nostalgic fans, it nonetheless displaced its direct competitor, the much, much better-liked Guardians of the Galaxy, to seize control of the box office. »
Lionsgate and Saban have officially announced that the Power Rangers movie they are in the process of developing will be released in theaters on July 22nd, 2016.
All we really know about the story right now is that it will be a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and it will follow "a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world." »

It’S Morphin Time! It looks as if Lionsgate has officially set the release date for what everyone is truly excited for: Power Rangers. That’s right, the release date for the film reboot of everyone’s favourite childhood franchise is July 22, 2016, set just under two years from now. With the date set, it’s likely we’ll hear more news about the filmmakers involved in the coming months, as no director or cast is currently announced, but if it makes you feel any better, X-men: First Class’ own Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are writing the script, with Roberto Orci recently coming on-board as executive producer.
Orci has made it known that the film will exist in continuity with the TV series, but as there are so many, it’s hard to know which. My money’s on the original series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, as that would be the most well-known, »

The Power Rangers will be back on the big screen in the summer of 2016...
Lionsgate's planned reboot of the Power Rangers has been given a release date. The new movie has been earmarked for a Us release on July 22nd 2016, and we'd expect that date to be reflected worldwide.
Furthermore, we've got a brief synopsis for the project too, which doesn't give much away.
"From a story by Executive Producer Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek, Amazing Spider-Man 2) and screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor) comes a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world".
Told you it didn't give much away. The missing part of the jigsaw right now is who is going to direct. We'll pass »
Lionsgate and Saban have announced that the Power Rangers movie will open on July 22, 2016.
From a story by Executive Producer Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek, Amazing Spider-man 2) and screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-men: First Class, Thor) comes a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world.
Saban’s Power Rangers franchise is the brainchild of Haim Saban, creator and producer of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers hit series that launched in 1993. Following its introduction, Power Rangers quickly became the most-watched children’s television program in the United States and remains one of the top-rated and longest running boys live-action series in television history. The series follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who “morph” into superheroes and save the world from evil. »
