According to Hollywood Reporter, there’s a Batman: Arkham Asylum animated film coming, which will be based on the Arkham video game franchise. Jay Oliva, who is building a shared continuity of DC animated films beginning with this month’s Justice League: War, will direct the film. The new Batman: Arkham film is considered a “stand-alone, continuity-free project,” and is due to come out as a Warner Bros. home release sometime in 2014. Oliva was quoted as saying: “We can do original content, we can do New 52 [based on the New 52 DC line] stuff.”
As of right now, it’s unknown if the film will be based on Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, or Arkham Origins.
The new Need For Speed movie trailer asks, “What drives you?” Well, I’ll tell you what drives me to the movie theater: the promise of seeing Aaron Paul on the big screen. Even though the video game franchise is in trouble, there’s some potential here for a movie franchise. And, even though the Fast and Furious movies may be without Paul Walker from now on (We miss you!), perhaps this is the start of a new racing series.
Need For Speed will open in theaters on March 14.
What do you do when you’re making a television show, and you need to show off a fake video game? How much work does that take? According to this hyper-detailed article at Tested.com, it takes quite a lot.
In the new HBO series, Looking, Patrick (pictured above) works at a fictional video game company called Most Dangerous Games (MDG). In a scene, in which you actually see only a few seconds of the video game, Patrick plays a fighting game against another character. In order to create that video game, Todd Fjelsted, the show’s production designer, turned to CG expert Craig Vance.
Vance put a lot of work into it, starting “by going through his library of CG assets, hoping that he might be able to modify existing structures instead of having to build them from scratch. The game’s three characters, for instance, were ones Vance had pre-built based on people he’d worked with, which he then altered to fit Naval Destroyer’s specifications. (So not only are the video game’s characters roughly based on the show’s characters, but they’re also roughly based on people Vance actually works with, too). The battleship exteriors were also existing assets that were tweaked.”
Full details can be found at the article. The final product was six minutes of gameplay, which was only shown onscreen for one second. Wild!

God bless the Internet.
Someone has put together a YouTube video that compiles the Start Screens of every NES game ever released (including some that never made it out of Japan) in alphabetical order. And get this… it’s nearly three hours long. I guess my entire day is shot now because, one, this sounds totally awesome and, two, I need to know if the whole thing actually is in alphabetical order.
With the sad passing of actor Paul Walker in November 2013, many were curious how Universal would handle his character’s disappearance from Fast & Furious 7. After a brief hiatus, it looks as though a combination of methods will allow the character to retire gracefully, in memory of the actor. However, the future of the gargantuan car chase franchise overshadowed the fact that Walker was due to don the suit and red tie of Agent 47 to play the assassin in a rebooted film version of IO Interactive’s Hitman. As the world moves on, as it must, we thought we’d have a look at which actor would be best to take on the title character. (more…)
Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction.
With how often they happen in movies and on TV, you’d think the FBI was out there breaking up an illegal cross-country road race every few weeks. But for some reason, getting into a highly conspicuous sports car and tearing ass down the highway at 150 MPH just doesn’t happen in real life. Thank god for the movies as the second trailer for Need For Speed is now available for your viewing pleasure.
He’s definitely furiouser than the normally stoic Vin Diesel, I’ll give him that.
When Mortal Kombat: Legacy was lighting up web browsers everywhere in the run-up to Mortal Kombat‘s launch, new episodes were doled out on a weekly schedule. And the final episode was subjected to a multi-month delay and we didn’t get to see it until the Summer.
That is definitely not the case when it comes to Mortal Kombat: Legacy II.
Today, director Kevin Tancharoen and Warner Digital uploaded every episode of the adaptation’s second season. So you can watch the first episode (which we’ve embedded above) and let it sink in or you can watch the whole thing in one sitting at Machinima’s YouTube Channel.
Hooray for binge viewing!
Need For Speed, a film adaptation of the long-running game series will be the home of Aaron Paul’s first post-Breaking Bad role. The first trailer has been released and it looks less like a video game adaptation and more like an artier version of Fast and the Furious, complete with a dramatic voiceover and a operatic score. Also, no one says “Bitch!” or makes a “speed = meth” joke. Priorities, people!
The Need For Speed movie will make its theatrical debut in March 2014.
