OtherSide Entertainment and Unity, during the Game Developers Conference 2019 keynote, have revealed the first trailer for the long-awaited System Shock 3, marking the return of Warren Spector to gaming. While the trailer is short, it’s sure to give fans of the series goosebumps.
System Shock 3 is developed by OtherSide Entertainment, and while initially being published by Starbreeze, will also be published by OtherSide, barring anything crazy in the near future.
Microsoft revealed during last night’s Inside Xbox stream that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is making its long-awaited appearance on PC. In addition, the series will include Halo: Reach for the first time, as well. The last mainline Halo game to be released on PC was Halo 2 in 2007, so this is certainly a long time coming for fans.
Interestingly, fans who purchase the collection will receive each game one at a time, beginning with the release of Halo: Reach, then following their numerical release after that. This is to help keep development times down so fans can enjoy the games as quickly as possible for release, with each title running at 4K and 60fps.
While feelings are mixed about the upcoming Jason Reitman directed requel, Ghostbusters, that hasn’t stopped it from moving right along. According to Variety, Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) have entered final talks to star in the new film. While Reitman was hesitant to cast Wolfhard given the similarities to Stranger Things, he was reportedly “blown away” by the youngsters audition.
The report indicates that Coon and Wolfhard will play a single mother and her son, respectively, showing some pretty strong similarities to previous entries of the film franchise.
After the box office flop that was Solo: A Star Wars Story, Disney essentially shelved all future spin-off films, instead choosing to focus on the main Skywalker saga and Star Wars: Episode IX. However, the addition of Disney+ seems to have shaken things up, as it’s being rumored that the Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off film could find life as a streaming series on the service with as many as six episodes.
While still just a rumor, the script is said to be great, with Disney high on developing the property. If The Mandalorian and Cassian have success on the platform we could see quite the influx of mini-series in our future.
A new rumor from HN Entertainment is reporting that Ridley Scott still has plenty more plans for the Alien franchise, with new series in development for Hulu. The report suggests that the series could adopt an anthology format, with each individual season covering a different region or era of the Alien universe.
The second series currently has no details, but as this is all speculation, take it with a grain of salt. However, with the Disney/Fox merger going through in a month, it makes sense.
Microsoft has revealed a first look at their upcoming Halo: Outpost Discovery event that will be making the rounds at five different locations across the country. The touring fan experience will offer players the chance to “step into Halo’s beloved science fiction setting like never before, with immersive themed attractions, interactive in-universe encounters, the latest playable game releases, and so much more.”
Attractions will include The Halo Ring Experience, where fans can interact with a real-life Warthog, take part in epic laser tag battles, and experience the latest in simulation and VR technologies, as well as hundreds of game stations featuring the Halo video game series, themed panels featuring the creators of the game, special guests and workshops.
In a name that’s being thrown around as the next big thing in Hollywood, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Fox has tapped Leigh Whannell (Upgrade) to direct the upcoming reboot of the classic film, Escape from New York. Late last week, Whannell also signed on to direct the reboot of The Invisible Man, so only time will tell how these two franchises play out.
After winning the bidding war for the rights, Fox was circling Robert Rodriguez (Alita: Battle Angel) for the job for quite some time, before Whannell, the co-creator of the Saw and Insidious franchises alongside success story, James Wan (Aquaman), which bodes quite well for Whannell’s future.
CBS All Access has shared the first trailer for Jordan Peele’s upcoming reboot of the classic horror anthology series, The Twilight Zone. While the trailer gives us little in the way of footage, we get to hear Peele’s hosting voice, which is fantastic and well suited to the role. We’ll see if this newest incarnation is able to keep up with the original, but with the talent backing it, expect good things to come.
The Twilight Zone debuts on CBS All Access on April 1st.
It looks like the upcoming reboot of the classic horror franchise isn’t going to be the only place to get your Child’s Play kick. According to Deadline, SYFY has picked up the rights to develop a television series starring horror’s favorite kid’s toy. On top of that, franchise creator Don Mancini is overseeing the creation of the series.
“I’ve long wanted to bring Chucky to television and Syfy is the perfect network for us,” said Mancini. “The show will be a fresh take on the franchise, allowing us to explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format, while staying true to the original vision that has terrorized audiences for over three decades now.”
In an incredibly surprising announcement, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that director Jason Reitman, son of the original Ghostbusters director, Ivan Reitman, announced that he’s written a screenplay for a new Ghostbusters film in secret, and will direct the film. The new Ghostbusters is a sequel to the first two films, and is set in the same universe as the 1980’s classics.
“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman told the outlet. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”
The film will release in the summer of 2020, with the main characters confirmed to be four new, teenage Ghostbusters. It’s currently unknown if any of the original cast will be returning.
UPDATE: Check out the first, fantastic teaser trailer for the film. This would have been quite the amazing surprise to see in front of a film for the first!
