The Hollywood Reporter has word that Hasbro’s M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) has finally found its director in F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton). While the film currently has no writer, it’s yet another addition to the growing slate of Hasbro films with adaptations on the table.
Hasbro’s M.A.S.K. has been in the early stages of a movie for quite some time, with the late 80’s animated series being up and down in stages of production.
An intrepid Reddit user has discovered an as-of-yet unreleased Midnight Club title on Xbox One. The title was discovered, mostly by accident, on a now locked Xbox One Developer account, and could indicate any number of things. The initial theory was that it was a remaster in the vein of Phantom Dust, but more current vehicles being available would suggest a series reboot instead.
There hasn’t been an update to the cult street racing franchise in 9 years, and for many, myself included it would be a welcome sight. Most racers these days take themselves too seriously, with Need for Speed’s upcoming Fast and Furious-inspired title being the sole entry in a genre littered with simulators.
While the title is still preliminary, Disney Animation Studios unveiled a new project set in the Cars Universe, tentatively titled Space. The footage opens to a desert, with a photo-realistic render of a crashed plane. Just afterwards, two experimental jet plants blow by, shaking the camera, and racing each other out of the atmosphere, showing a gorgeously rendered Earth (seen above).
Space still has a long way to go, but the film has a release date of April 12th, 2019. NOTE: Once again, that logo isn’t mine, it’s just something I whipped up real quick.
It’s admittedly a bit sad to see how far Gran Turismo has fallen down the pecking order of franchises that Sony cares about in regards to the PlayStation. What was once considered a cornerstone, is now relegated to a 30-second trailer. However, after several delays, we finally have a definitive release date for the game at October 18th.
In addition to the release date, we were also shown a special edition. The Gran Turismo Sport Limited Edition comes with an eight car GT Sport Starter Pack, 30 GT Sport avatars, a Livery Sticker Pack, a Chrome Racing Helmet for your Driver Profile, $1M in-game credit, and Steel Book package.
