Zack Snyder’s Justice League has got its official premiere release trailer. This trailer showcases a different movie than what we got from Joss Whedon. Whedon’s film was a lot more campy, heavier in humor and not well received. Snyder’s looks a lot more dark as well as more serious based on the shots that we saw. Even visually the darker edges of the cinematography add to the tone Snyder is trying to set. We see black suit Superman, Jared Leto’s Joker, Darkseid and a lot of scenes that were cut out in the original release.Post Views: 266

Uncharted has finally been released to theaters! The film went through a very lengthy process of hard development so for it to finally be out in theaters for the consumption of fans is a miracle to say the least. Now more than ever video games are becoming more popular and widely accepted. Mortal Kombat, Detective PIkachu, The Witcher & Arcane are a few recent video game adaptations that weren’t universally hated. With video game adaptations being in the best place it’s ever been since it’s existence in cinema. There are several more projects set to be released including Halo, Fallout and Bioshock to name a few. So let’s think about some other projects that may make for a solid adaptation!
Metro is actually based on a novel series of the same name so adapting this won’t be as difficult as it would be for other video game series. Similar to Netflix’s The Witcher, the show can adapt from the book’s story rather than trying to be accurate to the video game. The series takes place in Moscow, Russia during the post apocalyptic nuclear fallout. The series follows a man named Artyom who is one of the residents that live underground in the city’s metro system due to the toxic above ground air being unable to breathe.
The series is full of different factions, betrayals, mutated monsters, wide open landscapes and nail biting close calls that make fans fixate on when or if Artyom will survive. This series would benefit from a live action adaptation but due to the apocalyptic landscape being very vast this show may end up becoming an adult animated series. This would be a perfect 8 episode series where each season follows each book or video game.
Star Fox has the making of a perfect animated series. It has the animal cast with all distinct personalities, it has the space drama plot as well as the vast array of planets to explore. This would definitely benefit from an animated series but be aimed for the teenage or young adult crowd. If this captures the vibe of the Cartoon Network Teen Titans series then many would take it more seriously than just a casual campy children show. Most of Star Fox fanbase are well into their adulthood which means they don’t have to pull punches. This would potentially bring more fans to the series which may give Nintendo an incentive to put more money behind the series.
Since Bioware is confirmed to be working on a Mass Effect series, this leaves the question open for Dragon Age. There’s an immense amount of fantasy content on streaming services right now so there might be fatigue for this genre but the lore is so immense that it may hold its weight. Dragon Age is a series that has multiple different creatures, races, monsters, factions, magic, combat and of course dragons. The series has a lot of political aspects to it where the factions and organizations have conflict as well as hostile interactions. This series can be a standalone story since the first game follows a player created character called the Grey Warden.Post Views: 314

Rupert Penry-Jones plays a “unknown” character in Matt Reeves’ upcoming, The Batman, film and spoke about Colin Farrell’s Penguin.”I arrived on set and there was this guy walking around who was being so over confident… I had no idea who he was. He was being really friendly, he was telling all these stories, I was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ I thought he might’ve been a supporting actor [an extra to you and me]. He kept on talking to me, just really friendly, really nice, and I started noticing things about his costume. He had a brace on his leg and these weird scars on his face, and I thought, ‘This is quite a lot of effort they’ve gone to for a supporting artist…’ and suddenly I realized, ‘Wait a minute this guy must be playing the Penguin, oh my God that’s Colin Farrell!'”.
Farrell’s Penguin can be seen in the trailer that was released months ago (screenshot below). He already looks unrecognizable in the tease that we got so one can imagine how it would look on the big screen. Farrell had this to say, “I had only started it and I can’t wait to get back… The creation of it, the aesthetic of the character, has been fun and I really am so excited to get back and explore it. And I haven’t got that much to do. I have a certain amount in the film. I am not all over it by any means. But there are a couple of some tasty scenes I have in it and my creation and I can’t wait to get back. Yeah, I totally feel like it is something that I have not had the opportunity to explore before. It feels original and fun. But I am only at the start of the journey so I can’t wait to get back and really get into it”.
Anticipation continues to build for this movie!Post Views: 217
