E3 2017: Evil Waits Unseen In Hunt: Showdown Trailer

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 22:09

I love the Crysis games, so the E3 trailer for Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown gave me a huge geek boner.

Originally titled Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, Hunt: Showdown is a multiplayer horror game where you’ll hunt monsters across Louisiana. Although there will be some shooting and action elements, it looks like a greater focus will be placed on stealth and suspense as you stalk your prey (or it stalks you).

Hunt: Showdown Teaser
When two hunters risk everything
And evil waits unseen
The hunter becomes the hunted

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 20:00

The first Beyond Good and Evil game was suitable for kids, so imagine my surprise at hearing the E3 trailer for the sequel drop the F-bomb about a million times. Swiss fucking chocolate indeed.

Ubisoft have now released a separate video introducing the team at Ubisoft Montpellier who are working on the game. Before you ask, we still haven’t seen any gameplay footage, although this new behind the scenes look does give us more of an insight as to what to expect from the sci-fi sequel. Rayman creator Michel Ancel returns to direct. You may also know him as the director of the videogame adaptation of Peter Jackson’s King Kong.

We don’t yet know when Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be released or for which systems. If you’re excited for this fucking game, let us know in the fucking comments below.

E3 2017: God of War Presents a Saga Borne of Ash

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 19:08

Sony really is sparing no expense when it comes to marketing God of War. In addition to the stunning E3 trailer, they’ve also debuted the first installment in a promotional video series called “The Lost Pages of Norse Myth.” The first episode’s called “A Saga Borne of Ash,” and it really is something for both the auditory and visual senses to wallow in.

Director Cory Barlog also revealed the game’s box art for its release early next year on Twitter, and unsurprisingly, it’s a sight to behold. Kratos and his son Atreus really don’t mess around.

I’m gonna go ahead and predict that God of War will be the bestselling PS4 exclusive of 2018.

A Special God of War Performance – A Saga Borne of Ash | E3 2017
It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, he ventures into the brutal Norse wilds with his son Atreus, fighting to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

E3 2017: Destiny 2 Looks Just as Epic as You’d Expect

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 19:00

With Destiny 2 being one the biggest games of 2017 by far, the E3 trailer for Activision’s sci-fi shooter was just as epic as you’d expect.

Destiny 2 will once again feature the fast-paced online multiplayer action that made the original game such a gigantic success, and best of all, developer Bungie will once again include a story-driven campaign. It will be released on Xbox One and PS4 on September 6 2017, and unlike its predecessor, it will also be coming to PC on October 24. Pre-order here.

If you’re not ready to upgrade to Destiny 2 just yet, rest assured that Activision will be keeping the servers for the original Destiny online for the foreseeable future. Seeing as the combined marketing and production budgets of the original 2014 game came to an estimated combined total of an enormous $500 million, so I guess they’re gonna want to make as much money from it as possible before it goes offline.

See a New Okja Featurette: Mirando Is F*cked!

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:53

Earlier today a new trailer was released for Netflix’s upcoming – and highly anticipated – new film Okja, and now we’re back with a featurette, which is titled “Mirando Is Fucked.”

In this video, the Animal Liberation Front vows to take down the Mirando Corporation. We’ll find out later this month if they’re successful!

Okja stars Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Byun Heebong, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito, Jake Gyllenhaal, and An Seo Hyun. It was directed by Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Snowpiercer). who co-wrote the script with Jon Ronson.

The film hits Netflix on June 28th.

Synopsis:
For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja—a massive animal and an even bigger friend—at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image-obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend.

With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators, and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja… while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

Author Steve Alten Opens the Book on the Undisclosed

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:39

Best-selling author Steve Alten (Meg) has a new book on its way and we have your first look at what’s to come. Get ready to learn about The Undisclosed.

From the Press Release:
On Saturday December 14, 2013 at approximately 11:10 PM, NY Times best-selling author Steve Alten and his wife, Kim, were returning home from dinner and a movie. As they drove through their neighborhood, they noticed something bizarre moving toward them in the night sky – pale amber lights like nothing they had ever seen.

Says Alten: “There were eight to twelve of them flying in staggered pairs, approaching from the south less than a thousand feet (estimated) above Route 441/State Road 7 in Palm Beach County. They were far too silent and smooth to be helicopters and they were definitely not planes. As they came closer and passed almost directly overhead we could see the outline of a… well, their saucer-shaped vessels. By this time I had parked the car and Kim and I just stood and watched them, the two of us incredulous as they moved north through a cloudless night sky… until, pair by pair, they simply faded into the ether. Let me be clear here, they didn’t move out of range or shut off their lights or disappear into a cloud bank, they slipped out of existence. Neither one of us had ever seen a UFO before. Far from being scared, we felt exhilarated, like we had just been treated to something very special.”

Three days later, the couple drove to Miami Beach and had dinner with Dr. Steven M. Greer and his wife Emily – the first time the four had ever met. Considered by many to be the world’s foremost authority on UFOs and Extraterrestrials, Dr. Greer has prepared briefs for two sitting presidents, members of congress, the Head of the Joint Chiefs, and many world leaders. He also leads CE-5 expeditions – Human-instigated ET encounters which use group meditation and remote viewing techniques to vector in the Interstellars.

Steve Alten had contacted Dr. Greer after watching his 2001 Disclosure Project, a media event now viewed by hundreds of millions of people on YouTube that featured twenty eyewitnesses in the military, Intelligence community, FAA, and private defense sector who testified UFOs are not only real, but that there has been a major cover-up regarding free energy technologies, reverse-engineered from downed interstellar craft that could end global warming, poverty and famine, and change the world – only the fossil fuel industry and military industrial complex refuses to acknowledge their existence.

Alten had emailed Dr. Greer seeking permission to use excerpts of these testimonials in one of his novels. A year after the book was published he received an invitation to meet the Greers in Miami for dinner. Of course, the first thing the Altens spoke about was their UFO experience three nights earlier. Dr. Greer explained that these close encounters happen to many of the people he is going to meet for the first time; the ETs are “checking you out to make sure your motives are pure.” Greer discovered that advanced species communicate through consciousness; it was during meditation that he learned how to initiate his own close encounters.

The meeting in December led to a three-pronged game plan designed to alert the masses to these zero-point-energy technologies, along with details about a False Flag event set up by the military industrial complex intended to make it look like we’re being attacked by “evil aliens.”

‘Unacknowledged’ (the documentary) was released by The Orchard, a division of Sony on April 24, 2017. Unacknowledged (the book, edited by Steve Alten) was released by A&M Publishers on April 25, 2017. Undisclosed (a new thriller by Steve Alten) will be released on June 6, 2017. The story is about Adam Shariak, a veteran of the Iraq war, who is appointed Under Secretary of Defense in 2017 in order to penetrate a secret government, purposely black-shelving a clean, abundant energy system, reverse-engineered from downed UFOs. Both books and the movie name names, sites of secret black ops funded underground holding real UFOs and Alien Reproduction Vehicles, and details how a secret group, known as Majik, “murdered former CIA Director William Colby days before he was supposed to turn over a zero-point energy device and millions of dollars in seed money to Dr. Greer.”

LAFF 2017: Vertical Entertainment Nabs Never Here

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:14

You Were Never Here, the psychological thriller starring Mireille Enos from executive producers Zachary Quinto and Neal Dodson, has landed itself a new title and distribution before its premiere at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.

Per Deadline, Vertical Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to the newly titled Never Here, which is having its world premiere Sunday. Vertical is planning a day-and-date theatrical release in fourth quarter 2017, followed by a pay TV debut on Starz in early 2018.

Written and directed by Camille Thoman, Never Here centers on Enos’ Miranda, an installation artist who follows, photographs, and documents the lives of strangers to create her art. One night her secret lover witnesses a violent act from Miranda’s apartment window. To protect his identity, Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see, and she begins to create a new piece of work based on these circumstances. It sends Miranda into a maze of doubt and fear, blurring the lines between artist and subject. Sam Shepard, Goran Visnjic, Vincent Piazza, Nina Arianda, Ana Nogueira, and Desmin Borges co-star.

The film was produced by Wonderbar Productions in association with Before the Door Pictures. Julian Cautherley, Radium Cheung, Bronwyn Cornelius, Corey Moosa, Camille Thoman, and Elizabeth Yng-Wong produced; and Greg Ainsworth, Alvin Chau, Luke Daniels, Neal Dodson, Erika Hampson, Brandon K. Hogan, Subi Liang, Dan Milne, Ho-Cheung Pang, Alan Pao, Zachary Quinto, Wenke Sterns, and Alex Tong are executive producers.

The film has its world premiere in the U.S. Fiction Competition section Sunday, June 18th, at 6:15 PM at Arclight Cinema 4 in Culver City.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Starz and the Never Here team to bring this incredibly visceral film to audiences,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg said. “Camille’s distinct vision threads an especially unique story that calls for active participation from every viewer.

More to come.

Snowpiercer Next Stop for Alison Wright and Benjamin Haigh

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 18:07

More casting news has arrived for TNT’s small screen series version of “Snowpiercer.” Joining the previously announced Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Sasha Frolova, will be Alison Wright (pictured; “The Americans”) and Benjamin Haigh (The Conjuring 2).

Per Deadline Wright will play Lilah Anderson. She is careful and quiet but a pragmatic and independent thinker. Lilah lives with her husband and daughter in a fourth-class cabin and works in the train’s nail salon. Lilah doesn’t know how strong she is, but she’ll soon be forced to find out.

Haigh will portray Fergus McConnell, who lives in the back of the train amongst poverty. He helps his mother care for his sick father, and does his best to contribute to the daily struggles of life in this part of the train.

The “Snowpiercer” pilot, a futuristic thriller based on the acclaimed 2013 feature by Bong Joon-ho, is directed by Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson. It’s set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. It explores class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.

Connelly plays Melanie Cavill, a First Class passenger who works as the Voice of the Train; Diggs plays Layton Well, a prisoner who becomes a reluctant participant in a struggle that could upend life on the train; Sumner will play Bess Till the thoughtful, empathetic, and savvy part of the train’s security force. Basso will play LJ Anderson, a quiet, diligent, Midwestern girl who lives with her parents in a fourth-class cabin and works in the greenhouse car. Poor but not as desperate as those that live in the tail of the train, LJ has made peace with her daily routine until a major event shakes up her world; Frolova will portray Pixi Aariak. Pixi is strange, mysterious, and inscrutable, a charismatic chameleon and probably inspired by the expression “still waters run deep.” She returns to the front of the train after a three-year sentence in the prison car and struggles to acclimate to her old life. You can’t take your eyes off of her. And you probably shouldn’t.

“Snowpiercer,” a co-production among Marty Adelstein/ITV Studios’ Tomorrow Studios, Turner’s Studio T, and CJ Entertainment, is exec produced by writer/showrunner Josh Friedman; director Derrickson; Tomorrow Studios’ Adelstein and Becky Clements; and the original film’s Bong Joon-ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun, and Dooho Choi.
