Kojima Productions and Sony Computer Entertainment just finished a livestream revealing a massive, new trailer for Death Stranding revealing plenty of new gameplay footage, story details, and even an official release date: November 8th, of this year.
The long-awaited PlayStation exclusive looks sure to be quite the undertaking when it releases later this year, but if anyone can pull off a cinematic endeavor such as this, it would be Hideo Kojima.
Hideo Kojima debuted an extended (extremely extended) new look at his long-awaited first solo entry, Death Stranding. The footage is incredibly insane, with giant invisible shadow creatures that defy gravity, a pregnant Norman Reedus, a good amount of futuristic technology, and a still mysterious story.
The game has no release date, but stars Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen. Stay tuned for more information over the course of the next year, as it becomes available.
Mads Mikkelsen has been an actor on the rise for quite some time, now. The last few years have been a boon for him with prominent roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Doctor Strange, the cult-hit television show, Hannibal, and the much anticipated video game Death Stranding from director Hideo Kojima.
Now, an interview with Screen Geek shows he’s circling the newly announced role of Victor Von Doom in Noah Hawley’s (Legion, Fargo) upcoming solo adaptation. Mikkelsen famously auditioned for the role of Reed Richards in Josh Trank’s disastrous Fantastic Four reboot, with no lines and ridiculous movements expected, he walked out on the audition in frustration.
Yeah, it’s always interesting. They are experimenting with doing some of the villain’s stories as well. Let’s see if they do that. I’m not familiar that they’ve done it with anyone yet. They haven’t done it with The Joker [and] they haven’t done it with The Penguin. So we’ll see when that day comes. Well, I hope that all characters have a little more rounded shape in the sense that they have two sides of the coin. Yes, they are villains. Hannibal is a baddie – but at the same time, we kind of like him. I think all characters – goodies or baddies, should have a little of both and I think that every actor looks for that in a character.
