You know, kinda like official Batman or Spider-Man costumes, but instead with underpants for your face.
What works as a series of video game cutscenes doesn’t necessarily work as a feature film. The Ratchet & Clank movie is living proof.
Today’s new Ratchet & Clank game is a re-imagining of the first game in the series, but it’s also a tie-in with an animated movie that doesn’t hit theaters until April 29. Sony disabled sharing late game movie cinematics just in the nick of time.
The first meeting between the Lombax mechanic and defective Warbot is much more dramatic in the Ratchet & Clank movie than it was in the game. It had to be, really.
Production company New Regency is so sure about December’s Assassin’s Creed movie that it’s already talking sequel. Might want to pick up a ticket early, along with . . . I dunno, a $1,200 replica of a 15th century crossbow. That sounds nice.
Have you ever noticed that movie posters often look totally different when released in other countries? I have! Sometimes they’re good, but sometimes they’re not. This might be why.
American McGee’s Alice is easily one of my favorite twisted re-imaginings of classic literature, so when I saw there was a Kickstarter for Alice short films, I pitched in without a second thought. However, even with my nostalgia turned up high, the final products are a mixed bag to say the least.
I had hopes! Big hopes! There was potential, I thought, and maybe, just maybe, the filmmakers were going to show me up as an idiot by delivering a first-rate, smart Attack on Titan sequel. I was wrong. They did not.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation starts off on another level. Literally. In the first scene of the film, Tom Cruise runs from the ground and flies through the sky on the side of an airplane. It’s the film’s way of screaming at the audience, “You are in for a fucking crazy ride.” And then, it delivers.
Yesterday, Deadline reported that Gil Kenan (Monster House, Poltergeist remake) was set to direct the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. Since then, Kenan has been answering all sorts of questions on Twitter and Instagram—and these juicy details give us a better sense of what we can expect from the movie.
The recent Suicide Squad footage gave us a glimpse of Batman’s cameo in the film—but there’s even more to it than we realized. A new interview with Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder and his collaborators has revealed a lot more about how these films will connect up.
In other words, it’s everything fans wanted in a Deadpool movie, with a side of “big chrome cock-gobbler.”
Behold, Attack on Hot Dog. As internet buddy @clpearce point out, it’s funny when you realize that none of the Titans have wieners. That’s true! They don’t. Heh.
Once a yakuza... Always a yakuza.
Coming in 2016, Ratchet & Clank for the PlayStation 4 is technically the game based on the upcoming CG movie based on the original Ratchet & Clank. That’s fine—it can be as confusing as it wants when it’s this gorgeous.
Remember Kung Fury? The comedy action trailer about a renegade cop hacking his way back in time to kill kung-fu Hitler? Well, the full movie’s out now, and it’s solid—but I don’t love it.
Meet Orgrim Doomhammer, star of next year’s Warcraft movie. Wired’s got a first look at the digital movie star, voiced by actor Robert Kazinsky and rendered by Industrial Light and Magic. What do you think? I’m not used to orcs having so much body hair, but I dig it.
Vampire yakuza, minigun-toting trucks, a guy in a flying fuzzy frog suit... Sounds like Miike Takashi all right.
