After wasting our time with their announcement conference and all the backlash former CEO Don Mattrick pulled at E3, Microsoft hasn’t been too kind to the Xbox One. With no official release date announced fans are wondering just when they’ll need to make camp at GameStop stores around the world. We might not know the answer, but at least we know what everyone is going to be playing.

Over at the Gamescom trade fair in Germany, Microsoft announced their line up of games available once the Xbox One hits store shelves. A lot of these titles were already on hand to players, running off PC specs during E3, so none of this should come as a surprise. The official releases are:

Final Day of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is Complete & Check Out the First Official Still

- 08-18-13Comics, Film Posted by NickBungay

20130818-230750.jpg

For the last several months Bryan Singer has been directing X-Men: Days of Future Past, and well, principle photography has finally completed. The fun part is over. Now all that’s left is to edit the movie.

What better for Singer way to kick off the magical world of post-production at 20th Century Fox than releasing a photo of himself and star Hugh Jackman, writer/producer Simon Kinberg and producer Hutch Parker. It doesn’t look like much happened, probably just some pick up shots of Jackman whipping out his claws and growling, but at least it looks like he had fun.

And while post-production begins, promotion continues for Days of Future Past with this first official still from the movie,

We’ve lined up another edition of the Sexy Cosplay of the Week just for you and this week we head deep into the heart of Texas with Austin’s own Holly Gloha.

While this cosplayer considers herself an “amateur,” she sure looks pure pro to us. What was once just a pastime, Holly has embraced the costume community and made a passion out of it. She isn’t just dressing up as fighters or anime characters to look cute either, underneath her cute exterior this woman loves to flex her muscle as a martial artist.

Brains, beauty and the ability to knock most men out kicking them in the head, Holly Gloha is quite the combo. Check out more in the gallery below. (more…)

A ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ Television Series is Actually On The Way!

- 08-13-13TV Posted by NickBungay

20130813-223527.jpg

It’s been a while since anyone has heard anything from Robert Rodriguez on the future of his cult hit From Dusk Till Dawn. The action/horror made for a great movie and in the eyes of Robert, also makes for great TV.  Now, nearly two decades after Seth and Richard Gecko entered a bar full of vampires, it looks like he’ll be getting his wish.

The Machete Kills director has signed on to write, produce, and direct a series based on his 1996 film starring Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney. In an announcement made by Production Weekly on Twitter, the series has been confirmed to begin production in mid-October.

20130813-223249.jpg

This new series will be put together in a joint effort from Spanish-language network Univision and new English-language cable channel El Rey. This will be different from most of Robert’s usual work, seeing as the director has stuck to the big screen in recent years, but the man knows how to spin a few tales and make them work. The only issue is adapting the Dusk Till Dawn franchise to small screen and making it work for an audience that might never have even seen the movie.

Still it might be a bit much. The vampire genre has been a bit overplayed and over saturated, just look at what happened to True Blood and the whacked out seasons it’s had. With no cast announcements or even if the series will be based in the universe of the film, this series only has hype to go on. We’ll see how far that takes it once October comes around.

‘Maleficent’ Footage Teased at D23; New Synopsis Revealed

- 08-10-13Film Posted by NickBungay

maleficent___teaser_poster_by_graphuss-d59mqn1

With Disney‘s D23 expo somehow avoiding any significant Star Wars wars news,  people have found other things to get excited for. With so many projects announced, fans have been crowding around Maleficent - the film centered around Sleeping Beauty’s villain. Releasing first ever footage from the movie, the expo has released a few new details, many of which we have for you.

Putting a spin on the classic Disney tale, viewers will be treated to Maleficent, played by Angelina Jolie, as a teenage fairy. Odds a younger actress will take over the teenage role, but as it goes on will feature Jolie at intersecting points to the Disney animation; including the battle between the prince and the dragon.

The clip released at the expo is just one of those intersecting points, the christening of Princess Aurora, played by Elle Fanning as a younger Princess. While we can’t show you the footage, since it hasn’t been leaked yet, we can however give you the cliff notes revealing the castle and the fairies, played by Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton, and Lesley Manville, granting baby Aurora wishes until things get dark and stormy.

Everything begins to shake, Maleficent’s horns appear, and then her shadow as she sweeps into the room in a giant gown. “Well well,” she laughs. “I must say I felt quite distressed not receiving an invitation. What an awkward situation.” King Stefan, played by Sharlto Copley, declares “You’re not welcome here,” but the command falls on deaf ears as green energy and smoke surround Maleficent as she casts her curse. Intercut with this scene is footage of an older Aurora running around happily, ending the clip with the audience’s knowledge of what’s to come.

It sound’s like a great way to kick off promoting a movie, and according to Slash Film’s Peter Sciretta, is a “really look[ing] like a Disney fairy tale come to life.”

Maleficent arrives July 2, 2014. Check out the newer, updated synopsis below:

“Maleficent” is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
