BOOM! Studios just sent out a not-so-subtle visual teaser for a new series, and it looks as though the publisher will be bringing the beloved action/adventure flick, “Big Trouble In Little China”. BOOM! has been bringing an abundance of movie and TV properties to comic books over the past few years, and “Big Trouble” adds to their lineup of 80s inspired books.

There is no news on who will be writing or who will be providing artwork, though it is clear that Eric Powell is involved in some capacity as he drew the teaser, which you can see below.

Anathema To Open For HIM On US Tour

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:00

UK rock group Anathema has announced that they will be embarking on a US tour as direct support for Finnish love metal band HIM. The band is touring in support of their 2012 album Weather Systems, which ranks as one of my favorite albums ever released. They are also taking a break from writing/recording a new album to go on tour.

Guitarist/vocalist Daniel Cavanagh comments, “Anathema is delighted to return to the United States as special guests of our personal friends Ville Valo and HIM. It’s always a great occasion playing with our Finnish mates – as we’ve known each other’s music for many years and have been sharing stages together on a number of occasions since our main support to them in the UK for ‘Dark Light’ in 2006. To do this in the United States, the birthplace of rock and roll and one of Anathema’s true musical and spiritual homes, is just a fantastic prospect – especially so soon after our first headlining tour last autumn which was a success beyond our expectations. We hope to really provoke a strong reaction from the audience, and I’m sure we will perform a song or two from our brand new album, which is being finished as I write. HIM in the USA? Bring it on!

I saw Anathema tour last year and it was fantastic! The band has enormous amounts of energy live and they performed every song flawlessly. Go and see them if they come near your neck of the woods. All tour dates can be seen below.

Tour dates:
3/07 – Los Angeles, CA @ House Of Blues
3/08 – Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues
3/09 – San Francisco, CA @ Fillmore

New 'ROAM' Video Details Character Customization, Streamlined Interface

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 11:00

The developer behind ROAM, a post-apocalyptic top-down horror game where you scavenge for resources to build the ultimate anti-zombie fortress, has released a new video update that details a few massive changes the game has seen since the last update. In it, we get a look at the streamlined UI and a few of the basic structures as well as how they can be affected by the world. For example, if it starts to rain, that’s good for your water collector, but it’s bad for your campfire.

We also get a brief tease of the character customization system, which will let players choose their character’s clothing, gender, race, background, and special trait. My girl’s going to be adept at throwing knives, because guns run out of bullets, but only babies run out of knives.

Babymetal Releases Live Music Video For "ギミチョコ!!"

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 09:00

Japan’s teen-fronted metal band Babymetal has released a live video for their track “ギミチョコ!!” (“Give Me Choco!!”). What amazes me about this footage, which you can see below, is just how huge this band is. It’s really cool seeing a younger audience getting into metal, even if it’s heavily sprinkled with pop. I’m 100% behind this group!

“Give Me Choco!!” comes from the band’s self-titled debut album. You can buy Babymetal via iTunes.

Housemarque Reanimating 'Dead Nation' On PlayStation 4

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 02:43

It looks like Developer Housemarque’s excellent top-down undead shoot ‘em up is coming to the PlayStation 4 and they’re calling it the Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. Of the many similarly themed games we’ve seen over the last few years, this is easily my favorite. It’s dark and gory good fun that can be shared with a friend in co-op, and the meta-game, which pits every country’s kills against each other, provides a little extra incentive to kick ass. Because, ya know, patriotism.

Back in September, the dev teased their next PS4 title, and while I originally assumed it would be a sequel, that assumption has been proven incorrect. This will be a port of the original game, released in 2010, and it will be free to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers in Hong Kong on March 6.

Yeah, Hong Kong. I’ll update when I have details on release dates and pricing for other regions, as well as what that “Apocalypse Edition” bit means.

Janusz and I wanted to play with Victorian steampunk, alternate history, Lovecraftian monsters, and the magic of Tezuka’s Astro Boy to tell a story,” said Jai Nitz. “We wanted to wear our influences on our sleeves, but do the hard work of creating something new. I think this book will appeal to any fans of adventure.”

The mechano-samurai Toshiro travels a Victorian clockwork world, battling horrors too dark for mankind. With his mysterious partner, the world-famous adventurer Quicksilver Bob, Toshiro must face Earth’s greatest foe yet: the soul-stealing, zombie-creating jellyfish from beyond.

New 'Resident Evil 4' Gameplay Footage Shows The Ultimate Edition In Action

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 22:14

Capcom just released a handful of gameplay clips from the upcoming Resident Evil 4: Ultimate Edition, which I’ve bundled together into one easy-to-watch video because I love you.

The clips show a few different sections that should be familiar to anyone who’s played the game, including the lake, water room, and church. There’s no denying the fact that this game has aged, and not entirely well, but the smooth frame-rate (60 FPS) and improved textures sure look nice. Feel free to grab some popcorn and immerse yourself in eight brand Ganado-spanking new minutes of footage after the jump.

Resident Evil 4 Ultimate Edition arrives on February 28 on Steam, GameFly, GamersGate, GameStop Impulse, and Green Man Gaming.

Warner Bros. Sets 'The Conjuring 2' Release Date

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 20:41

After breaking box office records, Warner Bros. and New Line quickly began developing out the newly minted The Conjuring franchise, based on the allegedly true stories of the Warrens. Now, the studios are claiming the month of October for the next few years…

First, Warner and New Line are releasing a currently untitled horror film in theaters on October 3, 2014. While the now-filming spin off Annabelle was said to be a direct-to-disc/VOD release, it’s very possible that the studio has decided to push it out in theaters. This may and may not be Annabelle, and we’re working to confirm. Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard and Ward Horton are starring in Annabelle with John Leonetti, the cinematographer on The Conjuring, directing from a script by Gary Dauberman. Eric Ladin and Brian Howe also star.

The Conjuring included a haunted doll named Annabelle as part of a collection of demonic objects assembled by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.

Speaking of The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2 has been penciled down for release on October 23, 2015, taking that weekend away from a potential sixth Paranormal Activity. Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes are penning the sequel.

'Outlast: Whistleblower' Drags Us Back To Mount Massive Asylum In April

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 19:15

Just when you thought it was safe, developer Red Barrels has narrowed down the release window for Outlast: Whistleblower, the first expansion for their fantastic horror game debut, which was voted by you as the Horror Game of the Year for 2013. It also won scariest game, best gore, and best in indie horror. Clearly, a large majority of you enjoyed the game as much as I did.

We still don’t have a solid release date for it, but at least now we have a month. Whistleblower will arrive on PC and PS4 in April, where it will drag us one by one, kicking and screaming, back to Mount Massive Asylum. I can’t wait.

'Ghostbusters III' Will Happen Without Harold Ramis...

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 19:09

I’ve been dying for Columbia Pictures to get their third Ghostbusters off the ground, but with the sudden death of Harold Ramis, it’s kind of hard for me to envision it without him…

Still, the studio will continue forth with him, says a new report on THR.

Explains the site, Ramis’ death on February 24 has has left Sony scrambling to keep Ghostbusters III on track since Ramis, who died at age 69 due to complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, was to have made a cameo appearance in the film.

The sequel’s director Ivan Reitman is scheduled to meet with Sony production brass in the coming days to assess how to move forward on the project that is in active development.

Ramis, who starred in the 1984 original and 1989 sequel alongside Murray and Dan Aykroyd, was poised to appear in a third outing in a cameo role — like Murray and Aykroyd — that set up a baton-passing to a trio of newcomers.

The script, written by “The Office” writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, will now need to be revamped. “There will be some repercussions,” says a project insider.

A studio source downplayed the impact on the project, however, insisting that Ramis was involved in Ghostbusters III only minimally.

He was always great to bounce something off of, and that will certainly be missed,” the source says of Ramis. “But it won’t affect the script.

Even before Ramis’ death, the script had not progressed enough for the film to begin shooting in 2014.

Now, the studio will have to adjust without an on-screen assist from Ramis’ Dr. Egon Spengler…

[TV] "iZombie" Gets into the Drug Business

Tue, 02/25/2014 - 18:51

Deadline reports that “Breakout Kings” alum Malcolm Goodwin, below, has been cast as a co-lead in Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero’s CW drama pilot “iZombie,” from Warner Bros. TV.

Krosney plays Peyton, Liv’s best friend and roommate who is baffled by Liv’s recent behavior and feels like they’re drifting apart. Anders cast plays the show’s bad guy Blaine, an entitled rich kid who bites off more than he can chew in the drug business.
