Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 24, 2014 in Star Wars

Get ready, Star Wars fans: SlashFilm is reporting that they have heard from very good sources that the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut this week, around Thanksgiving. They’re saying that it will indeed be shown in theaters. Right around the same time, a Reddit post on /r/StarWars claimed the same thing, also stating that it will be in front of “most if not all films in select theaters.” Interesting! John Williams recently recorded a short piece of music, presumed to be the teaser music, and we also heard reports of a 60 to 90 second teaser. Thanksgiving could be extra exciting this year!

New Trailer For The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 23, 2014 in Anime, Cinema

He means it! The upcoming documentary The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness will be particularly compelling due to Hayao Miyazaki’s recent retirement, as it goes in-depth about the making of The Wind Rises and The Tale of Princess Kaguya. It’s an amazing look at how Studio Ghibli, Miyazaki, and Isao Takahata make films. Especially since Miyazaki retired during the period the documentary covers, it’s fascinating to see the way that it affects the studio. The film is already out in Japan, but it’ll be showing in some theaters later this month, with a wide VOD release in late January. Trailer below! Read more…

Here’s A Trailer For Strange Magic

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 23, 2014 in Cinema

strangemagic

What’s Strange Magic, you might ask? That’s a very good question! I wouldn’t have been able to answer that question until just recently. Out of the blue, Lucasfilm revealed a CGI animated film, with story by George Lucas, that is coming on in January. It’s a comedy-adventure film with plenty of singing, about two different side (fairies and goblins) being separated until a love potion begins to bring both sides together. Don’t expect for the trailer to tell you that, though! Also, releasing a trailer so close to release with very little promotion doesn’t exactly bode well. Oh, and all that music, but no “Strange Magic” by ELO? Come on, it’d be perfect! Read more…

Watch Tom Francis Play Heat Signature

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 22, 2014 in Videogames

You might know Tom Francis as the fellow behind the fantastic game Gunpoint. Well, he’s been hard at work on his next game, titled Heat Signature. In it, you pilot a small ship through a vast sea of space, sneaking onto other ships, assassinating people on board, hijacking their ships, and more. It has a really fun, flexible-looking gameplay style, in which things just happen, and you have to react quickly. The idea of stowing aboard other spaceships while flying around is a cool idea! Francis recently uploaded a video of him playing the game, and also teased a testing phase for enthusiasts. I can’t wait to see how Heat Signature turns out! Read more…

Kingdom Rush Origins Arrives On iOS, Android

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 22, 2014 in Videogames

Kingdom Rush is one of the best, most polished tower defense games available. It has a charm that’s a step above most other mobile games, plus, it’s just plain fun. You defend your exit with a cavalcade of towers and upgrades, along with a hero that you can direct around the field. The unique tower upgrades and the changing landscape help keep things feeling fresh even after you’ve killed your thousandth gnoll. I’ll be honest: I’ve sunk tons of time into the previous two games, so the same thing will probably happen with this one. Check out the trailer below, then download the game on iOS or Android!

Telltale, the folks behind The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us series, have a new Game of Thrones game coming out “soon.” They won’t say what date yet, but before the end of the year. So, December sometime. This game will follow House Forrester, a family of loyal bannermen to House Stark, from five different perspectives. It’ll feature characters from the show, too, and Telltale has announced that they’ve gotten several of the actors to reprise their roles as well. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Lena Heady (Cersei), Natalie Dormer (Margaery), and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay). Not too shabby! It’ll be out on basically all platforms soon. Steam pre-order page here. Check out the very short teaser below! Read more…

New Character Posters For Live-Action Attack on Titan

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 21, 2014 in Anime, Cinema

As you may have heard, a live-action Japanese adaption of Attack on Titan is coming summer of next year. They’ve been announcing the cast now, and to promote them Toho has released character posters for all of the main characters. In addition to your favorites like Eren, Mikasa, and Armin, there are also seven new characters and some new enemies, too. I’m hoping the special effects are good, as Japanese FX studios usually aren’t quite as impressive as what some Hollywood studios can put out. However, they’ve been improving rapidly and this could be a great movie to show off on. Check out the character posters below! Read more…

There May Be A New Alien In Prometheus 2

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 20, 2014 in Cinema

Alien

It’s hard to think of many aliens more iconic than the Xenomorph of Ridley Scott’s Alien. Scott realizes we still need new attempts though, so apparently he has teased a new alien to appear in the third act of¬†Prometheus 2. Scott said that he’d avoid species from previous Alien films, and to “Stop the dragons.” The rumor of God or Satan being involved was also denied. I’m not that surprised, I always figured there were more aliens in that version of space. I’d be interested to hear how they may relate to other species though. Read more…

Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella Trailer Actually Looks Alright

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 20, 2014 in Cinema

Cinderella

Disney has been raiding the Disney Vault for classic animated movies that can be remade into live-action features. After Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent, the next up is Cinderella. I’m of the opinion that these effects-driven movies are just cashing in on the original story and are completely unnecessary. But while the last two films just looked awful from the start, Cinderella actually looks alright. There isn’t visual overload and it just seems like a retelling of the classic fairy tale. It’s still completely unnecessary, but maybe this movie has a chance of being a good movie.¬†Despite my distaste for director Kenneth Branagh, his Shakespearean sensibilities seem to be a good fit. And with Helena Bonham Carter cast as a non-crazy person, plus Cate Blanchett, they’ve got some good actors participating. Read more…

Dragon Age: Inquisition Launches With A Gorgeous New Trailer

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 19, 2014 in Videogames

Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare knows it has to make up for Dragon Age 2 after a mixed reaction from fans. From all that we’ve got to see of Dragon Age: Inquisition in preview form, it feels like BioWare is really swinging for the fences, manically working to make an epic game that everyone can enjoy. This launch trailer looks pretty great — not just the game itself, but the beautiful graphics. It makes me kind of sad I’m behind on these games; I never finished Dragon Age: Origins, so maybe I’ll be returning to that one in an attempt to catch up to Inquisition.
