After The Departed producer Roy Lee teased the possibility of TV series follow-up to Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning film earlier this year, Amazon has officially secured the project and is moving forward with development.
According to Deadline, Amazon Studios is producing the series in association with Warner Bros. TV, and in partnership with the group of producers behind the 2006 movie, including Vertigo Entertainment, Initial Entertainment Group and Plan B Entertainment.
The first Dota 2 update since the conclusion of The International 6 goes live today, and with it come a new hero and post-game stats screen.
Announced at TI6, Vrogros the Underlord is the last hero to be ported over from the original Defense of the Ancients game. Described as a disabler, nuker and support, Underlord massively reduces enemies' damage output and can teleport his team across the map with his ultimate, Dark Rift.
Also launching today is the new post-game summary, which hosts a variety of improvements over previous iterations. Individual hero stats can be compared with both the other team's and the global average for that hero, and graphs for Net Worth, XP Advantage and more are now available after the game's conclusion. You can also see your stats as they relate to your teammates, so if you've been wanting to form a team, you can look up which of your friends is most compatible with your own style of play.
Marvel's Jessica Jones actor Kieran Mulcare may be playing Solomon Grundy in Gotham: Season 3, according to a new photo from the show's set.
The photo, which comes courtesy of ComingSoon.net, shows Mulcare decked out in a completely white outfit and sporting white hair. It's important to note that Mulcare's involvement in the series has yet to be confirmed. That said, his look bears a striking resemblance to that of Solomon Grundy.
The Call of Duty series is one of the biggest gaming properties in the world, but the first-person shooter didn't start out on top. In fact, Activision originally boasted about the first game having so many lead developers from Medal of Honor: Allied Assault in the reveal trailer.
With that, it's intriguing to see how Activision has debuted each new installment in the Call of Duty franchise. And maybe somewhat surprisingly, there has always been over-the-top action with the shooter series, even with the initial World War II installments.
So with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launching later this year, we decided it was the perfect time to look back at the debut trailers for the Call of Duty series and see how they have evolved. Check them out below.
A fair amount of thought was put into the title of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and director Gareth Edwards has come forward to explain why the upcoming movie bears the "Rogue One" branding.
In the latest issue of Empire, Edwards noted that while "Rogue One is a military call sign to some extent," it's also the first movie in the Star Wars universe "that's gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story – so it's the 'rogue' one."
The decision to title the film Rogue One extends beyond that, however, as the director went on highlight the fact that the film's leading lady Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) has a roguish personality, so the title is "kind of describing her as well in a similar way."
Love Pokemon so much you just wanna eat them? Fortunately, if you live in Sydney, you can.
Hashtag Burgers is driving a new pop-up burger restaurant in the Sydney CBD, and they're serving 'Pokeburgers' among their regular menu. Burgered characters include Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander.
Speaking to Mashable Australia, Hashtag Burgers' Ben Kagan described how the personalities of the Pokemon match the flavour of the burgers.
Following Ben-Hur's very weak debut at the box office this past weekend, Paramount Pictures could lose up to $100 million on its film adaptation of Lew Wallace's classic novel.
Variety notes that these estimates come from rival studio executives. Meanwhile, "sources close to the film" anticipate losses somewhere between $60 million and $75 million, citing home video sales as a possible revenue driver that could lessen the overall deficit.
Ben-Hur was no small project for Paramount, boasting a $100 million production budget and tens of millions in marketing and distribution. The film had an incredibly underwhelming debut last weekend, opening in fifth place at the domestic box office with $11.4 million. Meanwhile, the film pulled in $10.7 million internationally, bringing its opening weekend global total to $22 million.
The Pokemon World Championships took place this past weekend and the winning strategies were absolutely crazy. The tournament winners in the Video Game Championship (VGC) and the Trading Card Game (TCG) both used unexpected strategies to pull down thousands of dollars in prize money. Here's what went down.
While most players win through a combination of smart team building and well-executed strategy, this year’s champion won took advantage of a new format and won through a series of complicated Pokemon switches unlike anything we’ve seen before. Switching might not sound like a game-winning tactic, so let us explain.
For the 2016 season of the competitive Pokemon VGC, formerly restricted Legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo and Rayquaza were allowed on pro players’ teams. Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, and Rayquaza quickly rose up as the biggest threats because they have ultra-powerful abilities that drastically alter weather and therefore seriously mess with attack power and/or effectiveness. When one of these Pokemon enters the battlefield, their weather effect takes over, so players have to strategically switch into their Pokemon of choice so the weather always benefits their team and cancels out the opponent’s. Suffice it to say, matches this season involved a lot of switching.
