Here is a totally hilarious advertisement for the new Star Trek Video Game coming April 23 featuring good old William Shatner in yet another “fight” with his nemesis…the rubber suit Gorn as they continue their “battle” first seen over forty years ago! Not sure about the game but this is funny and a must see for original series fans.
The Darkest Hour oozes cheese at every turn from cut-rate special effects to a script that surely numbers a scant few pages to the oftentimes groan worthy dialogue this is a film that screams straight to video or TV movie of the week. It is nigh dumbfounding then to realize that the film opened wide in theatres during Christmas Day back in 2011 giving money paying moviegoers one big lump of coal as a gift in exchange for their hard-earned dollars.
After a decidedly long wait 20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for The Wolverine, the direct sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and essentially continuing the timeline set from the X-Men trilogy. Once again Hugh Jackman reprises his career-making role as the title character this time joined by other actors such as Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova.
With Olympus Has Fallen being a larger than expected hit racking up roughly $33 million against a $70 million budget in its first four days it seems Sony/Columbia pictures has decided to remind everyone out there that there is another similar movie coming out this summer. Therefore, here is the first trailer to White House Down directed by disaster movie maestro Roland Emmerich the man who brought you Independence Day, 2012, The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 BC.
Bioware just released the entire one hour Mass Effect panel that took place at PAX this past week which showcases members of the Mass Effect team talking about their experiences over the course of nine years working on the trilogy. While this is obviously meant for diehard fans it is certainly an interesting video as it gives some good insight into the production of arguably the best science fiction trilogy in video gaming history.
Sometimes I wonder if Hollywood studios are somehow colluding with one another when they decide to announce news items. Today we got three new posters, two for the upcoming The Wolverine and the other for long time coming Ender’s Game. What is the connection between the two? Ender’s Game director Gavin Hood was the director of the first X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie.
Here is a six minute retrospective video on the entire Mass Effect trilogy produced by Bioware featuring footage from all three games along with stories and comments from the Bioware staff about their favourite moments or characters. The video essentially serves as a final “goodbye” from Bioware to Commander Shepard’s trilogy of games and how bittersweet it feels to be leaving these much loved characters behind.
