A Castlevania Netflix Series? Sign Me Up!

17 February 2017 1:06 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For years, movie-goers have been waiting on the first definitively good video game adaptation to arrive.  Last year saw the release of four high-profile adaptations, any one of which stood a better than average chance at breaking out in a way that these kinds of movies never have before.  But Ratchet & Clank was forgettable, Warcraft was disappointing, and both Angry Birds and Assassin’s Creed were among the worst movies of the year.  To date the best video game adaption we’ve gotten is Mortal Kombat, and that was nothing more than cheap, disposable fun. It might just be, however, that

DC/Looney Tunes Specials Make For Craziest Crossovers Imaginable

17 February 2017 9:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DC/Looney Tunes Gallery 1 of 5   

Click to skip

More From The Web Click to zoom 

In the past, DC has crossed over with Marvel, Batman has battled Aliens and Predators, and there was even the unforgettable video game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. But in the very near future, we’ll all be treated to the weirdest crossovers this writer has seen since Archie Meets The Punisher when the DC/Looney Tunes initiative becomes a reality.

Now, DC has already found a measure of success when it comes to its radical reimaginings of classic Hanna-Barbera properties, which will soon enjoy a second wave led by Snagglepuss. But, to be frank, those were works that stood on their own and didn’t see any beloved Saturday morning icons joining forces with the Justice League. Granted, there’s Scooby-Doo Team-up, but that’s an all ages title and a different beast entirely. »

Secret Empire #0 Variant Cover Offers Best Look Yet At Captain America’s Hydra Costume

16 February 2017 10:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s no denying that Marvel’s upcoming crossover event, Secret Empire, has sparked a veritable brushfire of conversation on message boards, social media and in comic shops alike. Simply put, when Captain America goes bad guy and the rest of the Marvel Universe is forced to set him straight, it’s going to get some attention.

One thing that certainly got people talking was the recent reveal of Secret Empire #0’s standard cover by Mark Brooks that merely hinted at a Hydra-themed costume for Steve Rogers. But now, thanks to ComicBook.com, we’ve been granted a glimpse at John Tyler Christopher’s action figure variant cover that gives a full body look at what’s likely the complete ensemble.

Being more of a color palette swap, it’s not as imaginative as one would expect but still looks pretty cool nonetheless. If you were to ask me, it »

Action Movies You Need To See Before You Die, According to The Makers of 'John Wick: Chapter 2'

14 February 2017 9:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Nobody knows action movies better than the minds behind John Wick: Chapter 2, director Chad Stahelski and stunt coordinator J.J. Perry. Both have been in the business for decades, though most people probably don't know their names. They started as stunt performers, doubling for the stars of movies like Blade, Point Break, Mortal Kombat, The Matrix, and 300. They both have also been the stunt coordinators and/or second unit directors for action in movies like Captain America: Civil War, The Hunger Games, Warrior, The Tournament, and even the upcoming The Fate of the Furious. Basically, Stahelski and Perry really, really, really know their stuff. So when we asked them for a simple list of their top five action movies they thought people should see before they die, they...

E3 Tickets Are Sold Out, But That’s Okay

14 February 2017 1:37 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) made a big announcement that general admission tickets were going on sale for this years E3. Technically speaking this isn’t the first time as E3 was originally a public event, but it was exciting news. Then they sold out, but as a person that has been to E3 I say you can save your money anyway.

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

Every gamer has dreamed of going to E3. I did back when I was in high-school and even made a devious plan to sneak in if I didn’t get my way. Years later, and thousands of articles published on gaming websites, I finally got to go. It was mind blowing and a total “holy crap” moment for me, but then things set in.

 

E3 isn’t what you think it is, instead it basically boils down to a restricted Disney Land for gamers. »

New Injustice 2 Trailer Provides First Glimpse Of Poison Ivy In Action

14 February 2017 7:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following on from yesterday’s reveal of Swamp Thing, NetherRealm Studios has today released a further trailer for Injustice 2, this time dedicating every second of screen time to the beat ’em up’s female cast.

Cheetah, Catwoman, Black Canary and Poison Ivy all star in the video, the latter of which gets her debut gameplay during its run time. One of the most prominent members of Batman’s Rogues Gallery, Ivy, unsurprisingly, looks as if she’ll be sticking true to her name by utilizing various types of flora in battle, including giant pillars made of vines that elevate her above opponents. A very brief glimpse of what appears to be the villain’s ultimate attack – an overgrown monstrosity that can only be described as a more grotesque version of Final Fantasy‘s Malboro enemy – also features, with poor Atrocitus being on the receiving end.

Currently in beta, Injustice 2 is »

New Dlc For Mortal Kombat X is None Other than Grammy CeeLo

14 February 2017 2:58 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Far and away one of the biggest stories of the 2017 Grammy Awards was the gold outfit of CeeLo.  I’m not sure if he wore it to become relevant again.  I’m not sure if he wore it because he knew it would spawn a plethora of internet memes.  I have a feeling it’s a little bit of all of the above.  When you’re a celebrity and have achieved much of what you want to achieve, things can get boring after a while.  CeeLo’s outfit was far from boring and it was certainly a conversation starter. I have to say however,

The Highest Grossing Video Game Movies of All-Time

2 February 2017 12:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen keeps track of the biggest video game movies…

To go along with our Highest Grossing Superhero Movies of All-Time list, I felt we should also keep tabs on the video game movie adaptation. Since their debut in 1993, they’ve mostly come with a bad reputation, bad reviews and often bad box office results. However, some have been genuine successes. Below are two lists collated from BoxOfficeMojo with the domestic and global takings for video game movie adaptations.

Note: We’ve not included Pixels as it’s not directly based on a game, but we’re happy to add it in if enough people complain (it would be high in both lists)…

Film Review: The Book (Finally) Closes on ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’

1 February 2017 2:51 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Guilty pleasures are the order of the day, especially when we are facing daily signs of a real, impending apocalypse. End of the world by zombies remains one of the most popular cataclysmic cinematic events and “Resident Evil” is proof. “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” proves that what should be dead can come back to life, but the real question is if it actually should.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The “Resident Evil” film franchise has been around for over half my life and has proven to be the most successful (read: profitable) film series based on a video game to date. Having grown up on the video games, and having the first film come out during a probably impressionable time in my life (read: puberty), I have had this lingering fascination towards the franchise. The synergy created by combining several of my interests (video games, film, zombies, strong female protagonists, etc) has »

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson defends his movies

30 January 2017 1:01 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Though he doesn’t have the same clout as Hollywood’s other famous Paul Anderson, Paul W.S. Anderson has carved out his own impressive career, with films from the Mortal Kombat movie to Event Horizon to Alien Vs. Predator. But perhaps he’s best know for helming the persistent Resident Evil franchise, which just wrapped up with its sixth and final installment, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. In a new interview with Thrillist, Anderson reflects back on the Resident Evil franchise and the unique career path he’s taken over the years.

What comes through most strongly in the interview is the fact that Anderson is incredibly content with his career. He’s aware that his films aren’t critical hits (he mentions he doesn’t take reviews too seriously), but he takes pride in the fact that he’s satisfying an audience who clearly loves his work (Resident ...

Sundance’s Grossest Movie Ever? Multiple Walkouts Reported at ‘Kuso’ Screening

26 January 2017 12:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The midnight screening of “Kuso” was not well received by some Sundance Film Festival attendees.

Audience members began walking out of the theater after just “10 minutes of boil-bursting, pus-oozing revulsion,” according to Variety reporters.

Chris Plante, a reporter for The Verge, chronicled the exodus:

“I’ll start with the footage of an erect penis being stabbed. As with most footage of an erect penis being violently gored by a long steel rod, it’s certainly unexpected. A large chunk of the audience left my screening early, when a boil-covered woman choked a man with a strap until he covered half her face with semen that looked like a muted version of Nickelodeon slime. But the walk-outs continued in a consistent stream up to the final scene. Some gross-out films are one-note, but ‘Kuso’ finds new ways to test viewers’ fortitude. Some folks stuck around after a woman chewed on concrete until her teeth disintegrated, »

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

C'mon Hollywood: Why videogame movies suck and how to fix 'em

Super Mario Bros. Street Fighter. Mortal Kombat Annihilation. House Of The Dead. Not only are these terrible videogame movies, there are some of the worst movies, period. And the list goes on! Double Dragon, Dead Or Alive, Alone In Dar – I mean, you get the idea. Hell, let’s add Assassin’S Creed and (presumably) Resident Evil: Final Chapter to that list as well. So why is that?...
