Spiderman fanatic Maisie Williams hasn’t been around the site much. Last time we talked about her, she was dissing the hell out of ‘Game Of Thrones’ book readers for being douchebags. It was one of my favorite stories, authored by a fantastic writer. It’s nice to see her return to these pages, even if it’s not GOT-oriented. Yes, it just so happens that the young actress has aspirations to do other things outside of medieval fantasy. For instance, how about a superhero television series? When being interviewed about her upcoming projects, including the gaming world’s ‘The Last Of Us,’ little Arya Stark mentioned being in talks for something more Hit-Girl than sword girl. (more…)

In Development: ‘Resident Evil’ and ‘Underworld’ TV Shows

Resident-Evil-Underworld-poll-pic

With ‘True Blood’ having met its maker, somebody thinks we need hot vampires on TV again, and ‘The Strain’ just won’t do that. And when I say hot, I just mean normal-looking, unlike those freaks in Guillermo del Toro’s madhouse opus. Throw in a few werewolves (hopefully they won’t be represented as just big dogs) and screw it, might as well just adapt ‘Underworld’ to the small screen. But then, someone somewhere else is thinking, “Know what television needs? More zombies.” Cast a female ass-kicker because they’re the hot topic these days, and BAM! Might as well just adapt ‘Resident Evil’ to the small screen too! However these projects came about, I’d love to have eavesdropped during the meetings that assumed series stars Kate Beckinsale and Milla Jovovich would be on board. Aren’t they? (more…)

FX couldn’t bring it, but Sony TV has gotten Brian BendisPowers through Pilot production to series. Right off the bat we’re gonna warn you that there’s strong language in this trailer. Definitely not safe for work, or in front of small children. What this trailer does show is that Sony TV has an interesting look at Super Powers and the police that must try to… police them in Powers. (more…)

Hideo Kojima’s New Trailers: ‘Metal Gear’ And Del Toro Joint Venture ‘Silent Hills’

- 09-19-14Videogames Posted by Aspry Jones

QUIET

When gaming titan Hideo Kojima announced to his family and friends that he wanted a career in video games, they gave him that stern look of disapproval that I’ve seen way too often myself. An economics major at the time, Kojima was a gamer and felt that he could make a fulfilling life for himself in the industry. When those who loved him didn’t believe in him, he turned a dream into a dream job. The rest of the story is well known to fans, and everyone else should look no further than his stellar ‘Metal Gear Solid’ series. And we’ve got the trailer for his upcoming entry ‘Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain’ as well as his tag team effort with crazy filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro: ‘Silent Hills.’ Clickity click! (more…)

Maybe it’s just me, but I only know a handful of people who have adopted to next generation gaming. I know more people who are instead holding off on getting an X-Box One or Playstation 4 until better gaming titles are released. With the Holidays around the corner, there happens to be a slew of big titles coming. Titles that will undoubtedly push a few fence sitters over to fresher gaming pastures.  One of the biggest, most anticipated, and outright siiiiick looking titles – Batman Arkham Knight - was arguably the sole reason to buy a new system before the end of 2014.  Well, unfortunately, those who were ready to throw their money at the nearest Gamestop will have to wait. How long? I don’t think you wanna know. But, hey, there is some good news too! (more…)

Robin Williams’ Tribute in ‘World of Warcraft’ Revealed

I’ve never played the online role playing game World of Warcraft, but some people are downright obsessed with the it. One such person was the late, great Robin Williams, who once joked that he was darn near addicted to the game. Williams was a big gamer, even naming his daughter Zelda in honor of the long-running RPG series of the same name, and when Williams died quite suddenly last month, the push was on to pay tribute to the man in some form in the WoW universe. Mission: accomplished. Like a genie in a bottle, the Williams tribute in World of Warcraft has now been revealed. (more…)

‘Shadow Of The Colossus’ Film Adaptation Gets The ‘Mama’ Treatment

- 09-05-14Film, Videogames Posted by Aspry Jones

SHADOW

I never saw the horror film ‘Mama’ but now that I know Jamie Lannister’s in it, I may just have to check it out asap. That’s my guy, in all his sick and twisted sister-loving douchery. It’s about a couple taking in the husband’s young nieces who’d just spent the last 5 years living alone in a forest. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, I expect that film to be bonkers because that guy’s a crazy man. When I watched the trailer, the first thing I thought was “dude, I feel like I’m playing ‘Silent Hill’ with these claustrophobic hallways!” And then it dawned on me that director Andy Muschietti would do serious justice to a survival horror video game movie. Sony Pictures has similar ideas for the writer/director – just not all that similar. (more…)

The Angry Birds ‘Transformers’ Cartoon You Never Knew You Needed

I’ve steered clear of the Angry Birds franchise as a matter of principal (and because my cell phone is from the late 90s), but even I have to admit that mashing up this group of irate avians with The Transformers is a pretty clever idea. Scroll on to check out the VHS-rip-styled trailer for this upcoming cartoon and see what you think of it. (more…)
