These ads would play for select viewers who had not experienced an ad break for an extended period of time. These ads did not affect the entire stream, only target viewers. Twitch attempted to sugarcoat the experience by highlighting the fact that the ads would directly support the streamer. Regardless, many people in the community, including some of Twitch's largest streamers, voiced their disgust with the new ad testing.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a class="bc-title-link" title="Twitch Apologizes For Hispanic Heritage Month Emotes After Backlash" href="https://screenrant.com/twitch-emote-hispanic-heritage-month-racist-apology-twitter/">Twitch Apologizes For Hispanic Heritage Month Emotes After Backlash</a></span></p><p>Three days into the new ad experience and Twitch has already announced that the testing phase is over and that it has been listening to the community. <a href="https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1306741894479859712" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a> responded to Twitter user and Twitch partner Bryonato stating that viewers would no longer see midroll ads and that it had gone through the feedback of the original tweet, UserVoice, and other avenues of criticism.

With 24 official James Bond films to conquer before <strong>No Time To Die</strong> hits theaters (someday!), Bond fan Anna Swanson and Bond newbie Meg Shields are diving deep on 007. With shaken martinis and beluga caviar in hand, the<a href="https://filmschoolrejects.com/topics/double-take/"><b> Double Take </b></a>duo is making their way through the Bond corpus by era, so hang up your hats and pay attention. This time, they&#8217;ve set their scopes on ranking the James Bond opening title sequences.</em></p> <hr /> <p>What do all the <strong>James Bond</strong> films have in common? There are the obvious motifs: <a href="https://filmschoolrejects.com/neil-degrasse-tyson-dissects-james-bonds-gadgets-52b220a30a20/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">gadgets</a>, <a href="https://filmschoolrejects.com/bond-girls-ranked/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">girls</a>, guns, and of course, <a href="https://filmschoolrejects.com/james-bond-timothy-dalton-era/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">the man himself</a>. But aside from these qualities — which all exist in Ian Fleming’s source material — there’s one uniquely cinematic aspect that prevails in all twenty-four films: <strong>the opening title sequence</strong>. For nearly six decades, these flashy montages have set the stage, introducing us to the film about to unfold. Some of them have complimented the best films in the franchise, others have been the best thing about the more lackluster entries. But, whether they’re masterpieces or <strong><em>For Your Eyes Only</em></strong>, every opening title sequence is integral to what makes a Bond film a Bond film.</p> <p>Despite the films ranging across almost sixty years, there have only been a small handful of title designers. The most prolific of these is <strong>Maurice Binder</strong>, who was thirty-seven when he titled <strong><em>Dr. No</em></strong>. He was hired on the merits of his titles for Stanley Donen’s <em>The Grass is Greener</em> and would produce a grand total of fourteen titles for the franchise between 1962 and 1989. The two exceptions during this time were title designs created by American graphic designer <strong>Robert Brownjohn</strong>, who pioneered some early effects in <strong><em>From Russia With Love</em></strong> and <strong><em>Goldfinger</em></strong>. Since 1995, the titles have been exclusively created by music video and commercial director <strong>Daniel Kleinman</strong>, with the sole exception of <strong><em>Quantum of Solace</em></strong>. The 2008 film’s titles were completed by the graphic design company <strong>MK12</strong>, frequent collaborators of its director, Marc Forster.</p> <p>When ranking these opening title sequences, we took a melange of overlapping factors into account. First, the visuals; from the glorious neon accents of <strong><em>A View to a Kill</em></strong> to the sultry front-projection of <em>From Russia With Love</em>. Next, we took the title songs into consideration: the sultry lounge ballads, hair-raising belters, and out and out pop hits. Next, we factored in whether the sequence’s “whole deal” was representative of the film that it introduced &#8212; if it set up and vibed with the unique espionage escapade to follow. Finally, and only in unprecedented instances of a tie, we factored in the preceding cold open, which range from straight-faced character introductions to dropping primary antagonists down chimneys.</p> <p>This ranking would not be possible without <a href="https://www.artofthetitle.com/feature/james-bond-50-years-of-main-title-design/">Art of the Title</a>’s exemplary coverage of James Bond opening sequences. After you make your way through this ranking, we encourage you to peruse their site at length. And with that: line up your martinis and whip out your caviar. It’s time to praise, condemn, and rank the opening title sequences of the Bond franchise.</p> <hr /> <h2>24. For Your Eyes Only (1981)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357139 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/For-Your-Eyes-Only-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="For Your Eyes Only Opening Titles" width="800" height="338" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/For-Your-Eyes-Only-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/For-Your-Eyes-Only-Opening-Titles-768x324.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p>I have no proof that they play Sheena Easton’s “For Your Eyes Only” in hell, but who needs proof when you have ears? I’m only half kidding. But not really. <em>For Your Eyes Only</em> holds the unique distinction of being the only Bond title sequence to feature the theme song performer within the actual sequence itself. And there’s a reason it’s the only one. Much like the cold open (wherein Bond visits his wife’s grave and drops Blofeld down a chimney), the opening credits have fuck all to do with the film itself. And other than Binder’s infatuation with Easton’s striking face, conceptually it’s a bit confusing and music video-y. This sequence is in contempt of court for being the worst thing a Bond sequence can be: boring. (Meg Shields)</p> <hr /> <h2>23. Spectre (2015)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357151 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Spectre-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="Spectre Opening Titles" width="800" height="327" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Spectre-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Spectre-Opening-Titles-768x314.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by Daniel Kleinman</strong></p> <p>These titles upset me more than any poorly aged moment from the Connery films. For starters, there&#8217;s the forgettable song and the overly literal imagery that drags this down to unfortunate depths. But more than that, these titles also struggle with the central problem of <em>Spectre</em>: there&#8217;s no individual identity. We have images from the prior Craig films included as references to seemingly inform us that this film is about <em>something</em>, but what that something is or what makes it distinct or interesting? That&#8217;s unclear. One thing that is clear is that this franchise owes an apology to octopi everywhere. (Anna Swanson)</p> <hr /> <h2>22. Moonraker (1979)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357145 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Moonraker-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="Moonraker Opening Titles" width="800" height="331" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Moonraker-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Moonraker-Opening-Titles-768x318.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p>There isn’t a theme song that Shirley Bassey isn’t capable of nailing, and <em>Moonraker</em> gets points for the beauty of her voice and Binder’s choice to match its smokey cool quality with some hazy, cloudy imagery. There are some gorgeous aesthetics at play here. But the twirling and bouncing female silhouettes feel a little too much like a lite version of <em>The Spy Who Loved Me</em>. If it ain’t broke, it doesn’t necessarily have to be fixed, but this sequence proves that lightning doesn’t strike twice. What is stunningly captivating about one film’s titles can’t always be replicated and instead comes off as a little dull and derivative. For a film that exists because it can capitalize on its space theme, the opening titles are surprisingly lacking in space images. There are a few shots of the Moon and Earth, and one of a woman seemingly flying through the air, but when the entire galaxy was potentially at play, <em>Moonraker</em> is unfortunately weighed down by this sequence. (Anna Swanson)</p> <hr /> <h2>21. Dr. No (1962)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357138 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Dr.-No-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="Dr No Opening Titles" width="800" height="451" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Dr.-No-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Dr.-No-Opening-Titles-768x433.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by Maurice Binder<br /> </strong><strong style="font-size: 1.14285rem;">Animation by</strong> <strong style="font-size: 1.14285rem;">Bond, Trevor Bond</strong>. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)</p> <p>Although James Bond’s first cinematic outing with Eon Productions has many virtues, its main appeal is as a kind of “fertile crescent” for the tropes, aesthetic, and vibe of the whole franchise. Fittingly, the film’s opening sequence contains the kernels of a prototypical Bond theme, but in true <em>Dr. No</em> fashion, it’s all&#8230;a little off. <em>Dr. No</em>’s title sequence is probably the least Bond-y of all the titles. The minimalist graphic design of dovetailing shapes and silhouettes are far more elusive and subtle than its bombastically abstract peers. Adding to the off-ness, <em>Dr. No</em>’s sequence features three entirely different pieces of music, among them Monty Norman’s famous “James Bond Theme” (<em>Dr. No</em> is only one of two title sequences to feature the theme in the sequence itself). However, undeniably, the basics of a Bond title sequence are there, from the colorful female forms to the now-iconic gun barrel opener, a fortuitous last-minute pitch by Binder. All told: this is a very modernist and intellectual sequence. It’s clean, to the point, but like the film itself, a little restrained and tentative. (Meg Shields)</p> <hr /> <h2>20. You Only Live Twice (1967)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357155 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/You-Only-Live-Twice-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="You Only Live Twice Opening Titles" width="800" height="333" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/You-Only-Live-Twice-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/You-Only-Live-Twice-Opening-Titles-768x320.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p>This credits sequence doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but maybe it doesn’t need to. <em>You Only Live Twice</em> pulls its aesthetic from the film’s elevator pitch: Japan and volcanoes. Fires are smoldering, lava is flowing, and women are both stereotyped and silhouetted. Problematic? Yes. On brand for Bond? Definitely. The title song from Nancy Sinatra is slow and melodic, and the credits sequence keeps the pace, which is to say this sequence takes a leisurely stroll through its imagery. If you don’t like it, it comes across as sluggish. If you’re on board, then it’s meditative. Either way, there’s nothing truly extraordinary happening here, but I admit that I fall into the camp of enjoying the volcanic explosions. Team meditative. (Anna Swanson)</p> <hr /> <h2>19. Octopussy (1983)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357146 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Octopussy-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="Octopussy Opening Titles" width="800" height="332" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Octopussy-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Octopussy-Opening-Titles-768x319.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p><em>Octopussy</em>’s title sequence is the “hey can I copy your homework” of Bond title sequences. Binder departs from his usual format and steals fan-favorite flourish from Robert Brownjohn. Namely: projecting images onto female bodies. Only Binder uses (hold your breath) lasers. Do lasers have any narrative relevance to <em>Octopussy</em>? Nope. Oh well, at least it looks cool. Oh, what’s that? It actually looks terrible? They hadn’t really cracked detailed laser-tech yet in 1983? There are a couple of moments when the cookie-cutter laser shapes cut through clouds of smoke, which creates some cool light-scattering for the tried-and-true silhouettes to somersault in front of. But here’s the thing: we have yet another sequence with very thin connective tissue to the film it introduces. <em>Octopussy</em> is the movie where Bond goes to the circus. Surely that’s a fertile conceptual playground that could lead to some compelling and relevant visuals? Instead, we got one of the safest Bond title sequences out there with a (Mike Myers voice) frickin&#8217; laser. It’s fine. Rita Coolidge’s camp bop “All Time High” deserved better.

On Her Majesty&#8217;s Secret Service (1969)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357147 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/On-Her-Majestys-Secret-Service-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="On Her Majestys Secret Service Opening Titles" width="800" height="364" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/On-Her-Majestys-Secret-Service-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/On-Her-Majestys-Secret-Service-Opening-Titles-768x349.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p>Like the movie itself, the title sequence for <em>On Her Majesty’s Secret Service</em> is a little weird and certainly polarizing. It falls in line with the first act’s need to remind everyone watching that, <em>yes, this is a Bond movie… no, Connery is not in it… please don’t walk out and ask for a refund, we promise this is still James Bond, he’s just different</em>. A highlight reel from the prior five films is displayed while the horns from John Barry’s score blast. It’s a touch idiosyncratic and the rest of the visuals are rather understated, allowing much of the heavy lifting to fall on the song itself. Thankfully, the ultimate saving grace is just how great the theme is. The score for this film is undeniably magnificent and this opener is a rip-roaring instrumental thrill, and the song carries the somewhat uninventive aesthetics as well as anything could.

Thunderball (1965)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357157 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Thunderball-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="Thunderball Opening Titles" width="800" height="366" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Thunderball-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Thunderball-Opening-Titles-768x351.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p>You gotta respect honesty in advertising. <em>Thunderball</em> is the wettest Bond film, so it only makes sense that its opening title sequence would be equally aquatic. <em>Thunderball</em>’s credits take place in a sub-nautical disco; an effervescent, technicolor acid trip with groovily warped text to match. Should you think too hard about all the men pointing harpoons at the silhouetted bathing beauties? Nah. What does “strikes like Thunderball” mean? It doesn’t matter. It’s a transfixing sequence; in small part, one suspects, because the premise for its visuals actually makes a bit of sense. Figures swim across the screen through jets of color-shifting bubbles and wayward currents; they dive, flip, and tread, and it’s a sight to behold. Also, look. Tom Jones is a lot. But Bond films are a lot. In this era, he’s up against the diva Shirley Bassey, and he holds his own. Man damn near fainted after that nine-second final high belt: respect!

Sheryl Crow&#8217;s song has more of a classic feel that could have clashed with the visuals, but instead, it conveys a melding of sensibilities: the history of Bond and the modern world he finds himself in. It&#8217;s also got the classic images of girls and guns, but with some x-ray-centric and cyber twists. It&#8217;s the old and the new meeting one another. It&#8217;s a little odd, but it works.

Binder’s back at it again with the water distortions and the mattes. It’s enjoyable, familiar, and far less bombastic than Binder’s previous work on <em>A View to a Kill</em>. The pivot in the palette from neon to intersecting primaries is emblematic of the Bond reset this film represents: a new Bond may have taken up tenure, but this is still Bond. Nothing to worry about. A-ha comes out swinging with a rather pop-y theme, more of its time than timeless, but enjoyable nonetheless. (Meg Shields)</p> <hr /> <h2>14. The World Is Not Enough (1999)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357158 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-World-Is-Not-Enough.gif" alt="The World Is Not Enough" width="800" height="355" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-World-Is-Not-Enough.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-World-Is-Not-Enough-768x341.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by Daniel Kleinman</strong></p> <p>With rainbow oil spills, thrusting rigs, and women covered in nothing but tar, this is certainly one of the more thematically aggressive Bond title sequences. We’re still ankle-deep in slippery &#8217;90s CGI. But if you look past the rubbery sheen &#8212; and the occasional frame over-crowded with&#8230;lighting reference balls? &#8212; there’s a lot to be admired. Like Garbage’s theme song, a slinky belter that matches the textured, viscous visuals of the title sequence. The throwback to the Moore-era cold open transition into the title sequence is also a treat. The world may not be enough, but as far as the Brosnan title sequences are concerned, this’ll do just fine. (Meg Shields)</p> <hr /> <h2>13. The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)</h2> <p><img loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-357153 alignnone" src="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-Man-With-the-Golden-Gun-Opening-Titles.gif" alt="The Man With The Golden Gun Opening Titles" width="800" height="429" srcset="https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-Man-With-the-Golden-Gun-Opening-Titles.gif 800w, https://filmschoolrejects.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-Man-With-the-Golden-Gun-Opening-Titles-768x412.gif 768w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><strong>Main Tite designed by</strong> <strong>Maurice Binder</strong></p> <p>The beauty of this title sequence is that just when you think the reflective water imagery is all you’re gonna get and the pop tone has mellowed out, it gets sparkly and bright, showcasing a woman gyrating against what can only be described as a glitter fire. Before this explosion, the aesthetic is ripples on water, recalling the distortion of the credits in <em>From Russia With Love</em>, and needless to say, this counts as a win. And of course, because Binder knows what we want to see, there’s plenty of shots of the titular golden gun. They set it up, he knocked it down. (Anna Swanson)</p> <hr /> <h2>12.

This guide will help players unlock the gate that is blocking the final level of the game. <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Super-Mario-Sunshine-Corona-Mountain.jpg"/></figure><p>Corona Mountain is the final level of <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/super-mario/"><strong><em>Super Mario Sunshine</em></strong></a>. This guide will help players unlock it. <em>Super Mario Sunshine </em>has Mario exploring Isle Delfino, a tropical paradise with relaxing beaches, haunted hotels, and metal harbors. Mario, Peach, and Toad friends head on a tropical vacation for a bit of rest and relaxation. This vacation is cut short when Mario is convicted of a crime he did not commit. Mario is now tasked with cleaning up the island with his new friend, FLUDD. Along the way, Mario can collect up to 120 Shine Sprites, the island's power source. To complete the game, the player will need to take down the final boss in Corona Mountain. This guide will help players unlock this final area in the game.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/super-mario-3d-all-stars-leak-emulator-rom/">Super Mario 3D All-Stars Has Already Leaked, Proving Players' Theories</a></span></p><p><em>Super Mario Sunshine </em>is back in the spotlight with the recent <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/super-mario-3d-all-stars-bestselling-game-amazon/">Super Mario 3D All-Stars</a> </em>announcement. In this collection, players can find Mario's biggest 3D adventures from the past, <em>Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, </em>and <em>Super Mario Galaxy. </em>Although, <em>Super Mario Galaxy 2</em> is completely absent from this collection. The collection will also only be available for a limited-time, being discontinued and removed from store shelves at the end of March 2021. Here's how players can unlock the gate to Corona Mountain.</p><figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Super-Mario-Sunshine.jpg"/></figure><p>Unlike <em>Super Mario 64</em>, the game doesn't give the player clear instructions on how to open the <a href="https://screenrant.com/super-mario-3d-world-bowser-fury-updates-changes/">pathway to the final boss</a>. To do it, the player will need to complete every Shadow Mario episode in each level. This means the player will need to reach episode 7 for all of the main levels in the game. Once this happens, Mario will return to Delfino Plaza to find that it has flooded. The pathway to Corona Mountain will be open. This is the final location of the game, littered with several blue coins to collect and the final boss to challenge. It is also one of the hardest levels in the game.</p><p><em>Super Mario Sunshine</em> is a bit flawed when it comes to <a href="https://screenrant.com/super-mario-3d-all-stars-preorders-price-scalpers/">its mechanics and gameplay</a>. For example, a certain Shine Sprite requires that the player collects every Red Coin inside of a flying pachinko machine. There's no real way to control yourself while you're in the air, leaving a lot of the gameplay in this section up to chance. It can be frustrating but satisfying when the mission is completed. There are a few Shine Sprites like that in the game. Regardless, the collection is worth it for <em>Super Mario Sunshine </em>alone. Everything else is just a bonus at this point.</p><p><span class="next-single">More: <a href="https://screenrant.com/shigeru-miyamoto-interview-mario-life-advice-35th-anniversary/">Shigeru Miyamoto Offers Mario Life Advice On His 35th Anniversary</a></span></p><p><strong><em>Super Mario Sunshine </em></strong><em>i</em>s available now on the Nintendo Gamecube. <em>Super Mario 3D All-Stars</em> will be available on September, 18th 2020.</p> After We Collided: does this shock hit point the way to cinema's future? https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/sep/18/after-we-collided-ya-romance-cinemas-future Guardian Unlimited Film News urn:uuid:4701691a-d6e1-739a-ada7-162e7ee6e0e6 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:11:25 +0000 <p>Ignored by critics, barely marketed and released in just 47 cinemas, the YA romance has eclipsed X-Men at the UK box office and even ran Tenet close. What’s its secret?</p><p>Its success <a href="https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/box-office-report-september-4-6-surprise-film-outperforming/">has been hailed</a> as “extraordinary” – not least because no one saw it coming. The YA romance After We Collided has next to no marketing budget and zero reviews – and has taken more than £1m after just two weeks in the UK. A few weeks ago, it wasn’t even in line for theatrical release.<strong> </strong>As the box office struggles in the pandemic, the industry has sat up to take note of this grassroots success. It is “completely unprecedented”, says Delphine Lievens, a senior box office analyst at <a href="https://gower.st/">Gower Street</a>. “To do that based on no marketing – it’s a really impressive result.”</p><p>After We Collided is the follow-up to last year’s After; both are adapted from the <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/oct/17/one-direction-fan-fiction-books-movie-anna-todd">“new adult” novel series by the US author Anna Todd</a>. They follow the up-and-down relationship of college students Tessa (played by Josephine Langford) and Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin – Joseph and Ralph’s nephew). Tessa is a headstrong and bookish young woman with parallels – the film insists – to Elizabeth Bennet. Hardin, meanwhile, is a bad-boy Brit whose eminent unsuitability is signposted by his many Ramones tees. Naturally, “Hessa” can’t keep away from each other, as much as their parents, love rivals and life circumstances conspire to keep them apart. Cue maudlin electro-pop.</p> <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/sep/18/after-we-collided-ya-romance-cinemas-future">Continue reading...</a> Rayman Creator Michel Ancel Exits Gaming Industry To Pursue New Passion https://screenrant.com/rayman-creator-michel-ancel-retire/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:e4287d06-a5c6-d6f4-8183-4c809fffd601 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:10:58 +0000 Michel Ancel, the legendary video game designer who created Rayman and Beyond Good &amp; Evil has announced he is quitting the gaming industry. <figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Rayman-Creator-Michel-Ancel-Retire.jpg"/></figure><p>Legendary developer and <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/ubisoft/"><strong>Ubisoft</strong> </a>creator Michel Ancel, who created classic franchises such as <em>Rayman</em> and <em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil</em> is quitting the video game industry to run his own wildlife sanctuary. The designer has spent 30 years in the industry and been associated with the French publisher for more than 20 of them.</p><p>Ancel has been a major figure in the world of gaming for three decades. As well as creating one of the most memorable mascots in the industry in the form of Rayman, he also worked at independent studios and <a href="https://screenrant.com/ubisoft-beyond-good-evil-skull-bones-aaaa-games/">helped direct other successful series</a>. His current major project was <em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil 2</em>, a sequel to the cult 2003 game. Ubisoft made a surprise announcement that the<a href="https://screenrant.com/beyond-good-evil-2-e3-2017-trailer/"> game was in development in 2017</a> but has been unusually quiet about its progress in recent times. However, the company has confirmed that <a href="https://screenrant.com/beyond-good-evil-2-not-released-2020/">the sequel will not release in 2020</a>, which might be explained by Ancel's departure from the company.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/ubisoft-prince-persia-remake-graphics-controversy-response/">Ubisoft Says Prince Of Persia Remake Graphics Are A Stylistic Choice</a></span></p><p><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CFRbPpnqCxu/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Michel Ancel</a> has announced that he is leaving Ubisoft and quitting the video game industry after 30 years. Speaking in an Instagram post today, the designer claimed that this was to allow him to follow his second passion in life and set up a wildlife sanctuary in Montpellier. Best known for creating the <em>Rayman</em> and <em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil</em> series, the developer explained that his new project "<em>takes place in the real world and consists in a wildlife open sanctuary dedicated to education, nature lovers and wild animals</em>."</p><iframe width="320" height="320" frameborder="0" src="https://www.instagram.com/p/CFRbPpnqCxu/" frameborder="0"></iframe><p>Meanwhile, Ubisoft has responded to Ancel's departure in a statement to <em><a href="https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-09-18-michel-ancel-quits-games-development" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">GameIndustryBiz</a></em>. The company thanked the designer for his work over the last 30 years and "<em>the incredible creative vision he has brought to Ubisoft over the course of his career, and wish him all the best for this new venture</em>." Ubisoft also moved to reassure fans that <em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil 2</em> is still in development and on course for its scheduled release, saying:</p><blockquote><p>"The teams at Ubisoft Montpellier are currently focusing on the main stages of production, aligned with the vision set out by Michel. They will have more to share with their community of fans in the months to come."</p></blockquote><p><em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil 2</em> is not the only project that Ancel was involved in. He announced in 2014 that he had <a href="https://screenrant.com/ubisoft-beyond-good-evil-skull-bones-aaaa-games/">helped set up Wild Sheep Studio to develop</a> a new game called <em>WiLD</em>. According to the dev, this is a survival game set in pre-historic times that would be exclusive to the PlayStation 4. Despite a lack of news from Wild Sheep Studio, the game's publisher Sony still has the game listed on the official PlayStation website, suggesting it is still in the works.</p><p>Michel Ancel's announcement comes as a major surprise. There had been no indication that he was about to leave Ubisoft nevermind quit the gaming industry altogether. While the designer may not be a household name, he has had a big impact over the last 30 years and his presence will no doubt be missed at <strong>Ubisoft</strong>. Exactly what position this leaves games like <em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil 2</em> and <em>WiLD</em> in is uncertain at this time but fans will have to hope that his teams were given plenty of warning about the departure and could prepare accordingly.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/ubisoft-sheepedia-cancel-buggy-glitch-mug-manufacturing-error/">Ubisoft &amp; Sheepedia Cancel Mug After Hilarious Manufacturing Error</a></span></p><p>Sources: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CFRbPpnqCxu/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Michel Ancel</a>, <em><a href="https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-09-18-michel-ancel-quits-games-development" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">GameIndustryBiz</a></em></p> The Mandalorian: Why Mando Works With Rebels In Season 2 https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-season-2-rebels-new-republic-xwings-reason/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:8201a1d8-6e06-4ba6-d150-e52aaf569d5b Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:10:32 +0000 The Mandalorian&#039;s season 2 trailer shows the Razor Crest flanked by X-Wings, in a scene that might indicate a potential team up with the old alliance. <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-Mandalorian-Season-2-Razors-Crest-X-Wings.jpg"/></figure><p><strong><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/the-mandalorian/">The Mandalorian</a></em></strong><strong> </strong>season 2 trailer suggests that Mando could team up with the old Rebel Alliance, now the New Republic. A pair of scenes revealed in the trailer show two X-Wing Starfighters (with the split-engine design from <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-wars-7/"><em>Star Wars: The Force Awakens</em></a>) flanking the <em>Razor Crest </em>in space, and then chasing the <a href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-season-2-new-ship-razor-crest-theory/">Mandalorian’s ship</a> through the sky of an unknown planet. While there’s a chance these fighters have hostile intent toward Mando and Baby Yoda, there are no shots fired, and the scene in space could be a kind of escort. Either way, there’s a high chance Din Djarin may have to align himself temporarily with the New Republic, and a few main reasons why.</p><p>While <em>The Mandalorian </em>takes place about five years after <em>Return of the Jedi</em>, the New Republic hasn’t made much of an appearance so far. Mainly this is because the show takes place primarily in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, where the old Alliance has less of a presence (though there is a particularly good X-Wing scene in season 1). With Din’s season 2 journey sending him on a hunt for the Jedi, he’ll inevitably come into contact with the Republic more directly this time around. Since both parties are enemies of Moff Gideon and <a href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-show-imperial-stormtroopers-empire-defeat-timeline-reason/">the remaining Imperial forces</a>, a team-up would make sense.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: </span><a class="bc-title-link" title="Every Star Wars Easter Egg In The Mandalorian Season 2 Trailer" href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-season-2-trailer-star-wars-easter-eggs/">Every Star Wars Easter Egg In The Mandalorian Season 2 Trailer</a></p><p><em>The Mandalorian</em> season 2 trailer, narrated by the Armorer's words from the end of season 1, suggests that Din’s search for the Child’s home will also be a search for the Jedi.

While it is highly unlikely that Luke Skywalker will make an appearance in <em>The Mandalorian</em>, there are still canonical Jedi whose whereabouts during the show are unknown, most notably, <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-wars-rebels/">Star Wars: Rebels</a>’ </em>Ezra Bridger, and <em>The Clone Wars’ </em>Ahsoka Tano. It’s been heavily rumored that Ahsoka will appear in season 2, played by Rosario Dawson. <a href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-star-wars-rebels-ahsoka-sabine-ezra-story-finish/">Ezra and Ahsoka</a> both have close ties to the Alliance, and while their whereabouts during the original trilogy are unknown, any search for them would likely bring Mando into contact with the former Rebels.</p><figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Star-Wars-Rebels-Ending-Ahsoka-Mandalorian.jpg"/></figure><p>It’s also possible that Mando could temporarily join forces with the New Republic to battle against Moff Gideon and his ragtag army of Stormtroopers. Gideon will likely play a more active role in the second season, and Din may have to make some new alliances of his own in order to protect the Child. Since the New Republic is likely actively hunting Gideon, cooperation with Din could be beneficial to both parties.</p><p>Of course, even if Mando does work with the New Republic in season 2, the partnership would likely be tenuous at best. It’s doubtful that Mando trusts the “good guys” more than he trusts anyone else, especially considering that he’s attacked New Republic ships in the past. Plus, <a href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-show-baby-yoda-species-mystery-not-reveal-reason/">Baby Yoda’s very nature</a>, mysterious to many, would naturally be of significant interest to Luke and Leia, and Din is unlikely to freely give up the Child to anyone, for any reason.</p><p>While appearances from notable Rebel characters like Luke, Leia and Han are unlikely given the necessary recasts, cameos from more recent Alliance-affiliated characters like Ahsoka, Ezra and fellow Mandalorian Sabine Wren would be exciting to see in season 2. Moff Gideon's possession of the Darksaber in particular is an interesting link to Sabine, who wielded the weapon herself before giving it Bo-Katan Kryze. It's likely that Gideon obtained the Darksaber during the Purge of Mandalore, which would certainly give Sabine reason enough to make an appearance. Both she and Ahsoka were last seen in canon leaving the rebellion to search for Ezra after the liberation of Lothal. Whoever Din and the Child meet on their journey in <a href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-season-2-release-date-story/"><em><strong>The Mandalorian</strong></em> season 2</a>, the former Rebels are likely to play a significant role.</p><p><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/mandalorian-season-2-jedi-galaxy-timeline-unknown-reason/">The Mandalorian: Why No One In The Galaxy Knows About The Jedi</a></span></p> Why Magic: the Gathering's Innistrad Needs Its Own D&D Book https://screenrant.com/mtg-innistrad-magic-gathering-dungeons-dragons-campaign-dnd/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:63de91e0-c2ff-62c6-d80c-dae0de05ffe1 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:09:31 +0000 With more crossovers with between Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons coming, the next plane on the list should be Innistrad. <figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Anguished-Unmaking-Magic-the-Gathering-.jpg"/></figure><p><em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/magic-the-gathering/">Magic: the Gathering</a></strong></em> and <em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/dungeons-and-dragons/">Dungeons and Dragons</a> </strong></em>have always shared fans, but these days they are getting more linked than ever. With books like the <em>Mythic Odysseys of Theros</em> and the <em>Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica</em> out and allowing <a href="https://screenrant.com/dungeons-dragons-video-games-baldurs-gate-3-solasta/"><em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> players</a> to explore the planes of <em>Magic: the Gathering</em>, it's natural for players to start wondering where the next book will be hosted.</p><p>Some <em>Magic: the Gathering</em> planes have received short <em>Dungeons and Dragon</em>'s packages called "A Planeswalker's Guide To:." These guides have offered some small options for players who want to explore famous locations from <em>Magic: the Gathering,</em> but they haven't offered enough content for hungry dungeon masters, nor are they available for official <em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> Adventurers League play.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/magic-gathering-dragon-mask-art-mistake-change-why/">How Magic: the Gathering Was Forced To Create Dragon Mask</a></span></p><p>One of the planes that got a "Planeswalker's Guide To:" was Innistrad, a gothic horror plane that is a favorite among <em>Magic: the Gathering</em> players, but that small booklet isn't enough. Innistrad has the depth and content to fill a full book that will offer amazing options to <em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> players.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Magic-the-Gathering-Zombie-Apocalypse.jpg"/></figure><p>Previous editions of <em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> had a huge amount of templates, and races that players could use to build their unique characters, and quite a few of these were undead or monstrous creatures from classic horror that players could take control of. A campaign set in Innistrad would be the perfect place to implement interesting races that are missing from the 5th edition of <em>Dungeons &amp; Dragons</em>, like vampiric thralls or revenants. These undead races could even be implemented as part of the new <a href="https://screenrant.com/dungeons-dragons-dnd-race-rules-change-lineage-origins/"><em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> race changes</a> that are coming out with <em>Tasha's Cauldron of Everything</em>.</p><p>Additionally, this would allow for official rules regarding werewolves and implementing lycanthropy in player characters. Despite the fact that lycanthropy is a curse, playing a werewolf is something that players could use both inside and outside of Innistrad campaigns. The gothic horror plane is the perfect place to explore these player character options and add them to the repertoire of awesome features that dungeon masters can use in their games, similarly to the classes in <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/dungeons-dragons-mtg-james-wyatt-f-wesley-schneider/">Dungeons and Dragons: Mythic Odysseys of Theros</a></em>.</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Dungeons-Dragons-Tashas-Cauldron-of-Everything-Cover.jpg"/></figure><p>One of the most popular and best campaign books for <em>Dungeons and Dragons 5e</em> is the <em>Curse of Strahd</em>. Players have fallen in love with the enigmatic vampire and the <a href="https://screenrant.com/watch-critical-role-livestream-dungeons-dragons-dnd-campaigns/">opportunity to play <em>D&amp;D</em></a> in a setting that is different from classic high fantasy. A book on the plane of Innistrad has the opportunity to expand the options for players to build characters for a world of noble vampires, ravenous zombies, and deadly werewolves. Right now the best option for players is the land of Barovia, which is dominated by the presence of Strahd, meaning that it's hard to separate the setting from the campaign that it was built for.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/critical-role-dungeons-dragons-legend-vox-machina-titmouse/">Why Titmouse Is Perfect For Critical Role's D&amp;D Campaign</a></span></p><p>That said, Innistrad does have awesome story hooks for players to engage with from the <a href="https://screenrant.com/dungeons-dragons-adventures-forgotten-realms-magic-gathering-crossover/">original <em>Magic: the Gathering</em> story</a>, whether it's the gothic horror of Avacyn's absence, or the Lovecraftian aura of Emrakul's arrival. Innistrad has incredible storylines for <em>Dungeons and Dragons</em> players to use if they want them, but unlike Barovia, Innistrad isn't directly tied to a single story. If the players don't want to play through Avacyn's return, or Emrakul's arrival, they could easily run a homebrew campaign on the plane of Innistrad.</p><figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Drogskol-Capatain-Magic-the-Gathering-.jpg"/></figure><p>In <em>Dungeons and Dragons 5e</em>, it's easy to run out of undead monsters for the players to fight if the dungeon master is only using the monster manual. Though there are several variations of ghosts, zombies, skeletons, and more, over the course of a campaign the players are going to run out of undead to hunt. A sourcebook focused on Innistrad is the perfect way to remedy a lack of undead, as the plane is thriving with dozens of variants, many of which appear on <a href="https://screenrant.com/magic-gathering-walking-dead-crossover-cards/">iconic <em>Magic: the Gatherin</em>g cards</a>. Additionally, many of the creatures on Innistrad are already separated by different classifications; for example, Skags are zombies that have been cobbled together by 'Stitchers' and are infinitely modular.</p><p>No matter what happens with <em>Magic: the Gathering's</em> upcoming <strong><em>Dungeons and Dragons</em></strong> set, it's clear that Wizards of the Coast is considering more crossover between the two properties, and as they do, adding Innistrad to the list of books would be an incredible asset to players and dungeon masters alike. Innistrad isn't the only<strong><em> Magic: the Gathering</em></strong> plane that deserves a spotlight, but it should be one of the first featured.</p><p><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/magic-gathering-zendikar-rising-story-nissa-jace-nahiri">Magic the Gathering: Zendikar Rising - Everything You Need To Know</a></span></p> Jennifer Garner Had A Great Response When Asked Whether She's Pregnant https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2555035/jennifer-garner-has-a-great-response-when-asked-whether-shes-pregnant Cinema Blend News urn:uuid:5f496791-18dc-b704-03c3-aea95edf5f8a Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:08:48 +0000 <p>The <em>Camping</em> and <em>Love, Simon</em> star went ahead and answered that one.</p> Why Tatiana Maslany Is Marvel's Perfect She-Hulk | Screen Rant https://screenrant.com/marvel-she-hulk-tatiana-maslany-best-choice-reasons/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:d858624e-f1ab-175f-c680-084c1fb49eeb Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:08:30 +0000 Tatiana Maslany&#039;s casting as Marvel&#039;s She-Hulk has fans excited for the upcoming Disney+ series. Here&#039;s why Maslany is the perfect actor for the role. <figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Tatiana-Maslany-in-Orphan-Black-and-She-Hulk.jpg"/></figure><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Marvel fans have cause to celebrate with the news that Tatiana Maslany will be playing <em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/she-hulk/">She-Hulk</a></strong></em> in the upcoming Disney+ series; here’s why Maslany is the perfect actor for the job. <a href="https://screenrant.com/she-hulk-tv-show-origins-powers-explained/">She-Hulk, also known as Jennifer Walters, is Bruce Banner’s cousin</a> who receives Hulk powers after an emergency blood transfusion following an accident. Disney+ announced its plans for a She-Hulk series in 2019, and though little is known about the plot, the She-Hulk comic library spans 40 years, meaning Marvel has plenty of options. Production will be inevitably delayed by COVID-19, but this new bit of casting news has sparked excitement among fans and renewed buzz about the highly anticipated series.</p><p>Director Kat Coiro is also joining the <em>She-Hulk</em> team, and is known for her work on <em>It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia</em>, <em>Dead to Me</em>, and <em>Brooklyn Nine-Nine</em>., while <em>Rick and Morty</em> scribe Jessica Gao is set to serve as head writer. Tatiana Maslany is best known for her work in the series <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/orphan-black/"><em>Orphan Black</em></a>, in which she plays over a dozen clones, making up a hefty percentage of the show’s leading cast and earning an Emmy award for her work. Her other roles cover a diverse range, from theatre to television, and include a small arc on comedy series <em>Parks and Rec</em>, the multimedia Broadway play <em>Network</em>, biopic <em>Stronger</em>, and, most recently, crime drama series <em>Perry Mason</em>. Here’s why <a href="https://screenrant.com/she-hulk-tv-show-cast-tatiana-maslany-marvel/">Maslany is the perfect person to play Marvel’s She-Hulk</a>.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: </span><a class="bc-title-link" title="Marvel: Why She-Hulk's Movie/TV Rights Are Different To Hulk's" href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-she-hulk-movie-tv-rights-explained/">Marvel: Why She-Hulk's Movie/TV Rights Are Different To Hulk's</a></p><p>Maslany has proven over the course of her career that she is an acting powerhouse; she is a chameleon in <em>Orphan Black</em>, seamlessly playing multiple characters with distinct mannerisms, voices, and body language. She will undoubtedly deliver a magnetic and lived-in performance as She-Hulk, which will cater well to the many sides of the character, not least of which is the dynamic between Jennifer Walters and her alter ego. While some She-Hulk storylines from the comics are more lighthearted, others take a much more serious tone. Maslany has proven that her comedy chops are just as strong as her dramatic ones with several hilarious moments from <em>Orphan Black</em> to contrast her more serious roles both in that series and in films like <em>Stronger</em>, which portrays a real-life tragedy. This means she can easily play both sides of the character brilliantly.</p><figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Tatiana-Maslany-Cast-As-She-Hulk.jpg"/></figure><p><em>Orphan Black</em> has also prepared Maslany for the technical challenges that may come with a <a href="https://screenrant.com/she-hulk-marvel-power-comic-origin/">role like She-Hulk</a>. In behind-the-scenes videos and interviews, fans have had the opportunity to learn a lot about how <em>Orphan Black</em> was made, and how scenes featuring multiple clones were filmed and assembled. Often executing highly choreographed blocking, working with green screens, and performing with her acting double Kathryn Alexandre, Maslany has a demonstrable talent for maintaining the stakes of her performance in technically demanding conditions. <em>She-Hulk</em> will likely employ different methods, but Maslany will certainly be able to apply her skills to a process like motion capture, the use of special effects makeup, or any other technical procedure the show may choose to employ.</p><p>Finally, in addition to her immense talent and skill as an actor, Maslany brings with her a loyal fanbase and a frankly delightful personality. Fans of Maslany’s other projects who may not have had an initial interest in <em>She-Hulk</em> may gravitate towards the series due to her involvement, and her performance could lead to critical acclaim. In interviews, she is consistently engaged in discussions about her work, supportive of her enthusiastic fanbase, and genuinely friendly with her cast mates. Already having been welcomed by Hulk actor <a href="https://screenrant.com/she-hulk-smart-hulk-cameo-disney-plus-origins-why/">Mark Ruffalo, who fans hope will appear in <strong><em>She-Hulk</em></strong></a>, Tatiana Maslany will undoubtedly fit into the Marvel family with ease as an exciting new part of Phase 4.</p><p><span class="next-single">Next: </span><a href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-disney-plus-shows-upcoming-release-dates/">Every Upcoming Marvel Studios Disney+ TV Show</a></p> Empire Of Sin Releases On PC And Consoles In December https://screenrant.com/empire-of-sin-release-date-december/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:6b85890f-378c-de0d-98bb-ed46c73daef5 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:03:03 +0000 Head back to the prohibition era as a mob boss with their sights set on controlling 1920s Chicago in Empire of Sin, coming this December. <figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Empire-of-Sin-Cover.jpg"/></figure><p>The upcoming<strong> <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/empire-of-sin/">Empire of Sin</a></em></strong>, a new game by Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, is being released this December on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Romero Games is an independent video game development studio, run by husband and wife duo Brenda and John Romero. After working together on several games, the Romeros set up Romero Games in 2015.</p><p>In that time, the studio has released two titles, <em>Dangerous Dave in the Deserted Pirate's Hideout</em> and <em>Gunman Taco Truck</em>. The latter is a reboot of John Romero’s mobile game from the late 1980s that focuses on collecting gems across varying level backdrops. <em>Gunman Taco Truck</em> – which is currently available on <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/steam/">Steam </a>and mobile platforms – is a 2D single-player game in which the goal is to get your Taco Truck across the post-apocalyptic United States to the safe havens of Canada.

The objective – to gain control of Chicago. Compared as a successor to 1999’s <em>Mob Rule</em>, the gameplay is in the style of a tactical role-playing game, combining the elements of traditional role-playing video games with that of a tactical game. Players must use logic and cunning to work their way up the criminal ladder. This is done by enlisting underlings to your criminal empire. And, obviously, this would not be a criminal empire without some sordid businesses to take control of.</p><p>Brothels, casinos, illicit breweries and speakeasies can all be obtained by the player to extend their influence in the city. Of course, <em>Empire of Sin</em> players will be expected to deal with rival gangs and the strong hand of the law during gameplay. Alliances can be formed with rival gangs (even if only for the short term), alcohol can be used as currency and combat is used to secure new businesses into your empire.

While the movie was great in its own right, it's very different from Disney's animated movie from the '90s, being based more on the original Chinese legend, unlike some of the other shot-for-shot remakes that Disney has been releasing as of late.</p><p>One of the biggest points of contention with the remake is the lack of songs present in the original film, with the live-action version only <a href="https://screenrant.com/mulan-2020-movie-soundtrack-songs/">featuring instrumentals here and there</a>. Today, we're going to be going over reasons why the film should have included the songs, and why they were right to be excluded.</p> <h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">10 </span>Should: To Honor The Original</h2><figure><img src='https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/mulan-with-a-flower-in-her-hair.jpg' /></figure><p>The original <em>Mulan </em>is one of Disney's <a href="https://screenrant.com/behind-the-scenes-facts-about-animated-mulan-1998/">strongest animated offerings</a>, and this is due, in part, to its songs. Many of the film's standout moments come from the soundtrack, such as <em>I'll Make a Man out of You </em>and <em>Reflection. </em>Couldn't these songs have been included in some way to honor the original movie while still giving the live-action remake its own identity?</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">9 </span>Shouldn't Have: It's A Different Movie</h2><figure><img src='https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mulan-Phoenix-Wings.jpg' /></figure><p>To put it simply, this version of <em>Mulan </em>is its own. It's not as much of a remake as some of Disney's other recent offerings. It tells an original story that differs greatly from its animated ancestor. Certain story beats just don't make sense to include the songs. It wouldn't have felt right for the songs to be inserted into somewhere they don't belong.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">8 </span>Should: They're Simply Iconic</h2><figure><img src='https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mulan-Featured-Image.jpg' /></figure><p>As mentioned previously, the original <em>Mulan </em>movie has some iconic songs, with two of the standouts being <em>I'll Make a Man out of You </em>and <em>Reflection. </em>Those two songs are some of the strongest in Disney's entire catalog. They're nothing short of iconic.</p><p><span class="related-single">RELATED: <a href="https://screenrant.com/mulan-disney-live-action-best-costumes/">Mulan: 10 Best Costumes In The Live-Action Movie, Ranked</a></span></p><p>It just doesn't seem quite fair that all of the other Disney remakes got to retain their songs while <em>Mulan </em>was the only one that lost out. Not having updated versions of the classics really is a shame.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">7 </span>Shouldn't Have: It's Serious</h2><figure><img src='https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mulan-Warrior-Cropped.jpg' /></figure><p>As mentioned earlier, <em>Mulan </em>2020 is <a href="https://screenrant.com/mulan-live-action-animated-similarities-differences/">a very different movie</a> from the original, it's got a much darker tone than the light-hearted animated version. There's not as much of a place for the songs in the war-centric movie that is the live-action <em>Mulan. </em>There's barely even jokes to speak of, so songs are simply out of the question.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">6 </span>Should: They Could Have Been Altered</h2><figure><img src='https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Feature-Mulan-1.jpg' /></figure><p>Perhaps the original songs could have been altered in a way to fit the live-action movie, though. Perhaps, rather than directly singing them, the songs could have been overlayed over other footage. This would allow the songs to integrate a bit more seamlessly into the film, and not feel as out of place as they would if the actors and actresses were singing them. This method would allow for the best of both worlds.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">5 </span>Shouldn't Have: Way Too Jarring</h2><figure><img src='https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/mulan-battle-look-mulan-2020.jpg' /></figure><p>Even so, most of the original film's songs are too upbeat to even be included over footage. The only song that really could have been salvaged in this manner would be <em>Reflection, </em>as it is more of a downbeat ballad that fits the tone that the movie is going for. Some of the higher-tempo tracks would have felt out of place even with the above method used.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">4 </span>Should: Share Some Identity With The Original Movie</h2><figure><img src='https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Play-This-Part-Mulan.jpg' /></figure><p>As previously noted, both versions of <em>Mulan </em>are very different films, to the point that sometimes they don't feel like they share the same identity in any way. Including all or some of the songs would have been a great way to bridge this gap.</p><p><span class="related-single">RELATED: <a href="https://screenrant.com/mulan-2020-movie-martial-arts-actors/">Mulan: Every Martial Arts Icon In The 2020 Movie</a></span></p><p>The movies could still have very different plots from one another, but share in the songs that helped make the original such an iconic movie. This would have helped tie them together beautifully.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">3 </span>Shouldn't Have: There Wasn't A Place For Them</h2><figure><img src='https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Liu-Yifei-Trains-in-Mulan-2020.jpg' /></figure><p>When it really comes down to it, there just wasn't a place in the live-action version of <em>Mulan </em>for the original's soundtrack. They're <a href="https://screenrant.com/disney-mulan-1998-behind-scenes-facts-trivia/">all great tracks</a>, and arguably, <em>Reflection </em>should have been able to sneak its way into the film. But it didn't, and that makes sense. <em>Mulan </em>2020 is a war movie more than anything, and including songs just wouldn't have felt right in most scenarios.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">2 </span>Should: Mulan's Actress Is A Singer</h2><figure><img src='https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Liu-Yifei-in-Mulan-2020.jpg' /></figure><p><a href="https://screenrant.com/disney-mulan-better-version-1998-2020-comparison/">One final point in the songs' favor</a> is that Mulan's actress, Liu Yifei, has a singing career in China. She knows what she's doing when it comes to singing. While no one dislikes Christina Aguilera's version of <em>Reflection</em>, would it have hurt to, at the very least, have Liu Yifei sing the song in the credits? That would have been enough for most fans. But alas, it was not meant to be.</p><h2 class="item-title"><span class="item-num">1 </span>Shouldn't Have: The Instrumentals Are Perfect</h2><figure><img src='https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/disney-mulan-live-action-mulan-shooting-arrow.jpg' /></figure><p>One point in the live-action film's direction is the fact that at certain moments instrumentals that allude to the original movie's soundtrack are included, most notably, <em>Reflection. </em>If the songs couldn't be included, this is the <a href="https://screenrant.com/disney-mulan-1998-2020-movie-differences/">next best thing that fans could have gotten</a>. The instrumentals are used in beautiful ways, and they're a joy to hear.</p><p><span class="next-single">NEXT: <a href="https://screenrant.com/most-memorable-quotes-mulan-animated-disney-movie/">Mulan: 10 Best Quotes From The Original Animated Film</a></span></p> This Famous ‘Star Wars’ Poster Was Created in Just 36 Hours https://www.slashfilm.com/greg-hildebrandt-interview/ /Film urn:uuid:4db498aa-3b30-8e3d-a4ca-1e855665acf7 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:00:17 +0000 <p>Erik Sharkey and Kevin Burke love movie posters so much that they’ve both made movies about them.

Erik directed a film about legendary poster artist Drew Struzan titled <a href="https://www.slashfilm.com/trailer-drew-man-poster/"><i>Drew: The Man Behind the Poster</i></a>, while Kevin directed <a href="https://www.slashfilm.com/24x36-trailer/"><i>24&#215;36: A Movie About Movie Posters</i></a>, which examined the birth, death, and resurrection of illustrated movie poster art. Now the two filmmakers are joining forces to make a film about one of the most famous illustrators to ever work in the science fiction and fantasy genres: <b>Greg Hildebrandt</b>.</p> <p class="p1">If you don’t know Greg’s name, you definitely know his work. He and his brother Tim, who died in 2006, whipped up an early <i>Star Wars</i> poster that instantly captured the imaginations of fans around the world. That alone would be enough to put these guys into the legend category, but Greg, now 81 years old, has also had a decades-long career spanning franchises and companies like <strong><i>The Lord of the Rings</i></strong>, <strong><i>Harry Potter</i></strong>, <strong>Marvel</strong>, <strong>Magic: The Gathering</strong>, and even the <strong>Trans-Siberian Orchestra</strong>.</p> <p class="p1">I spoke with Sharkey and Burke about their plans for their new documentary, and also had a long chat with Greg Hildebrandt himself about the creation of that famous <i>Star Wars</i> poster and much more.<span id="more-636115"></span></p> <p><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-636125 aligncenter" src="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/Hildebrandt-Erik-Kevin-700x480.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="480" srcset="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/Hildebrandt-Erik-Kevin-700x480.jpg 700w, https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/Hildebrandt-Erik-Kevin-360x247.jpg 360w, https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/Hildebrandt-Erik-Kevin-768x527.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></p> <p class="p1">It’s clear that both Sharkey and Burke are genuine fans of Hildebrandt’s work, and that passion fuels their desire to put his story on film. “You think about all of the great movie posters – the Hildebrandt brothers’ <i>Star Wars</i> poster or Drew Struzan’s <i>Back to the Future</i> poster – they get the spirit and the tone of the film in just one image,” Sharkey told me over the phone. “And then there’s just the mastery of it: the way they put paint on a canvas, the power of composition, the power of lighting. It’s not only great movie poster art, it’s just great art in general.”</p> <p class="p1">But isn’t the act of illustrating sort of inherently un-cinematic? How do these guys plan to overcome that obstacle? They plan to animate some of his work to help bring it to life on the screen, but Burke has a more human answer as well. “Not only is Greg an absolutely wonderful illustrator, which allows us to lean into the magic of the worlds that he creates to create a visual sense of our own that in some ways mirrors that, even for a documentary…but also he’s a very, very compelling person with an incredibly interesting story to tell. At the end of the day for any documentary, it’s about making that human connection. Greg, for all his fame and celebrity and the otherworldly nature of his art, is still very much a human and a worldly man with a lot of interesting things to say and an incredibly interesting life story.”</p> <p class="p1">Sharkey also thinks it’s “really important to tell these artists’ stories while they’re still here.” Since many of Greg’s contemporaries have passed away, he says “it’s important to get all these stories now to pass on to future generations, because Greg is a part of a tradition and an era of artists that had such an impact on illustration, our lives, and pop culture.” The directors have shot a large part of the film already – extensive interviews with Greg and other artists, seeing Greg in action at New York Comic Con, etc. – but they still have some additional editing and interviews to record, and you can follow their progress on the movie’s <a href="https://www.facebook.com/GregHildebrandtDocumentary">Facebook page</a>.</p> <p class="p1">Here are some highlights from my conversation with Greg Hildebrandt, touching on a few of the major pop culture properties he’s worked on throughout his career.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-636123 aligncenter" src="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/LOTR-Hildebrandt-700x937.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="937" srcset="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/LOTR-Hildebrandt.jpg 700w, https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/LOTR-Hildebrandt-360x482.jpg 360w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></p> <h2 class="p1">The Lord of the Rings</h2> <p class="p1">“I worked in an animation studio in Detroit, where I started my career, so I always think in terms of film [when doing my artwork],” Greg told me during our interview. “Movement, action, and motion. For me, most of the illustration and paintings that I’ve done, I’m not decorating a page. Which is a beautiful concept…but I feel like I’m trying to create a doorway into a real world that you can actually step into and be part of.”</p> <p class="p1">You can feel that immersion in much of his work. Browsing through a selection of his illustrations, I’m struck by the sense of tactile warmth he’s able to bring to his images, as well as the striking action of the larger than life characters he captures – especially in the realm of Tolkien’s fantasies. After reading <i>The Hobbit</i> and <i>The Lord of the Rings</i>, Greg and Tim knew they wanted to work in that world in some capacity one day. He never got to meet Tolkien, who died just before they finally got the job, but in the late 1970s, they became famous for their work illustrating Tolkien calendars for Ballentine Books, which essentially turned them into rock stars in the fantasy art world.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-636124 aligncenter" src="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/TSO-Hildebrandt-700x479.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="479" srcset="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/TSO-Hildebrandt.jpg 700w, https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/TSO-Hildebrandt-360x246.jpg 360w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></p> <h2 class="p1">Trans-Siberian Orchestra</h2> <p class="p1">Again, if this name doesn’t immediately ring a bell for you, it’s a guarantee that you’ve heard their work. Mixing classical music with rock opera, TSO is known for their albums of Christmas music. Songs like “Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24” and “Wizards of Winter” have been used in advertising and viral videos for years, and Greg eventually became one of the primary artists who contributed to the band’s mythos.</p> <p class="p1">“I’ve never been so affected by something in that sense where it took me over,” he said of the first time he listened to <i>Beethoven’s Last Night</i>, the band’s third album. So inspired was he by the music that he would stay up at all hours of the night creating imagery prompted by what he heard, “with no concept or thought or feeling or belief that I would ever do anything with it, I just had to get the imagery out that I was feeling and seeing.” Greg worked on it for three months, and when he finished it, his wife and business manager Jean got in touch with TSO frontman Paul O’Neil, who had been a fan of Greg’s work since his <i>Lord of the Rings</i> days in the 1970s. That mutual admiration led to Paul using Greg’s work on a re-issued cover of the album, and kicked off a long working relationship that included Greg creating several album covers, program illustrations, posters, and more.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-636122 aligncenter" src="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/SW-poster-700x1104.jpg" alt="SW poster" width="700" height="1104" srcset="https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/SW-poster.jpg 700w, https://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/SW-poster-317x500.jpg 317w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></p> <h2 class="p1">Star Wars</h2> <p class="p1">“That’s a fluke, that job,” he says of his most widely-known work. In the late 1970s, the brothers were working on general illustrations – which essentially meant that they took whatever gig came their way. After creating illustrations for a toilet training book, they decided they wanted to work on “something a little more romantic,” so they opened the phone book and cold-called an art studio in Manhattan that handled movie posters – and to underline how different things were at that time, the guy on the other end of the line didn’t immediately hang up on them, but instead told them to bring their portfolio over. “In those days, they did that,” Hildebrandt explains. “You could call an art director or an editor at a publishing house and have a conversation with them.”</p> <p class="p1">When he and Tim arrived at the New York studio, there were paintings all over for <b>Mel Brooks</b>’ <i>Young Frankenstein</i>. As huge fans of Brooks’ work, the brothers begged to do a poster for the movie, but the editors explained that they didn’t have a budget for another poster and the current ones were being shipped to California the very next morning. Plan be damned: Greg and Tim designed a poster of their own on the train back to New Jersey, created the entire layout, took some photos for reference once they arrived at their own studio, and banged out a painting overnight with no sleep. “It didn’t get used,” Greg says, “but these guys were blown away that we came in the next morning with a painting.”</p> <p class="p1">“A couple years go by, we get famous for our work on <i>The Lord of the Rings</i>, and a phone rings,” Greg continues. “These guys from the studio said, ‘You’ve gotta help us out. We’ve got a sci-fi film here, the film’s being released in a week and the director’s not completely satisfied with the poster he has.’” Tom Young had already created a version of the poster, but they told the brothers that George Lucas wanted a new poster to have “this basic set-up, but he wants it more comic book-y.”</p> <p class="p1">Left with only that vague direction, they decided that meant “stronger color, higher contrast,” and that the ships should be “a little sexier.” The studio needed the work as fast as possible, so the guys worked for 36 straight hours to finish the picture. “They were flabbergasted that we did it,” Greg says, and he suggested adding a couple of other characters in the background – “like the big hairy guy. I didn’t know who he was,” Greg laughed. “These guys never saw the movie. They had no idea what it was themselves. I said, ‘What’s it about? Who’s this guy with the helmet?’ and they said, ‘I don’t know, the Man in the Iron Mask or something.’” The original agreement – which, crucially, was just a handshake agreement – was for Fox to use their image outside the theater and in newspaper ads. But it ended up as a merchandised product: on T-shirts and all sorts of other places beyond those agreed-upon bounds.</p> <p class="p1">Not only that, but the Hildebrandt brothers never got the original painting back. There was no agreement that the studio would hang on to that, but “in the heat of the moment, everything was so fast,” Greg says. Six months went by, and Greg and Tim still hadn’t been paid for their work on the poster. Greg ended up suing 20th Century Fox, but Fox’s lawyers – who were presumably still stinging from realizing that they had signed merchandising rights away to George Lucas – said they would fight hard against Greg’s claim to money from reproducing their image on shirts.</p> <p class="p1">Eventually, the lawyers said they would double Greg and Tim’s original price of $4,000. “I said, ‘Great!’,” Greg remembers. “Then the lawyer sent me his bill, which took up four thousand dollars and got us back to the original four thousand dollars. So Tim made two thousand off that picture, I made two thousand. Everybody assumes to this day that somehow, we as artists who did the painting became super millionaires or some god damn thing…but, it’s still there. People still recognize it.”</p> <p class="p1">As for that <i>Young Frankenstein</i> poster the brothers painted over the course of that one frenzied night, that painting has since been lost. Greg has tried to find it, but suspects it may have been swiped from the office and simply taken home by a higher-up at the studio. But at the end of the day, he’s just thankful it served as a springboard to bigger things. “I have no idea where it is. Maybe Mel Brooks has it, I don’t know. But when people ask me who I’d like to thank about doing the <i>Star Wars</i> poster, I do say Mel Brooks.”</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.slashfilm.com/greg-hildebrandt-interview/">This Famous &#8216;Star Wars&#8217; Poster Was Created in Just 36 Hours</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.slashfilm.com">/Film</a>.</p> <div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?a=Vv8HW3Q44A4:ZGeN0cIX0uA:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?a=Vv8HW3Q44A4:ZGeN0cIX0uA:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?i=Vv8HW3Q44A4:ZGeN0cIX0uA:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?a=Vv8HW3Q44A4:ZGeN0cIX0uA:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?a=Vv8HW3Q44A4:ZGeN0cIX0uA:EGzC5_Ws_ZE"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/slashfilm?i=Vv8HW3Q44A4:ZGeN0cIX0uA:EGzC5_Ws_ZE" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/slashfilm/~4/Vv8HW3Q44A4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> The Top 10 Most Popular TV Shows on Netflix Right Now https://collider.com/top-10-netflix-tv-shows-list/ Collider urn:uuid:0759faf7-293d-d75c-f659-dbe0c6735c40 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:00:10 +0000 Updated September 18th Looking for the Top 10 TV Shows on Netflix now? Well, you're in the right place!

We're here to help streamline that process. A little something for everyone this week as the Top 10 offers a mix of kids shows, all-ages animation, supernatural drama, and reality TV series. Away … How To Find (& Catch) Shiftry in Pokémon Sword & Shield https://screenrant.com/find-catch-shiftry-pokemon-sword-shield/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:7d643dbe-6c5b-204a-5774-86e5e9fa162e Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:00:04 +0000 Shiftry is a strong Grass and Dark-type players can add to their team in Pokémon Sword &amp; Shield. Here’s where it can be found in the Galar region. <figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Untitled-1-69.jpg"/></figure><p><strong><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/pokemon-sword-and-shield/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Pokémon Sword &amp; Shield</a></em></strong> players looking for a competent Grass and Dark-type should look no further than Shiftry. This forest guardian originated in the Hoenn region and causes frigid windstorms with its leaves. Few encounter this treacherous entity, as it resides deep in ancient forests. However, their first evolved form, Seedot, are common. Ever since its inclusion in the <em>Pokémon</em> series, it’s always been a version exclusive; this time, it can only be found in <em>Sword</em>.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/find-catch-galarian-zigzagoon-pokemon-sword-shield/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">How to Find (&amp; Catch) Galarian Zigzagoon in Pokémon Sword &amp; Shield</a></span></p><p>This Pokémon’s menacing demeanor is also seen in combat, where it overwhelms its foes with incredibly high Attack and Special Attack. On top of that, they learn moves that cover a large range of types: Rockslide, Focus Blast, Heat Wave, and more. Shiftry excels at fighting on Sunny Day teams, which are teams <a href="https://screenrant.com/find-catch-fomantis-pokemon-sword-shield/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">that utilize sunny weather conditions in battle</a>. Not only will its powerful Solar Beam and Solar Blade moves take no turn to charge, but this Grass type’s speed is doubled in sunlight thanks to its Chlorophyll ability. For those that want this hard-hitting menace, here’s a look at where to find them in the Galar region.</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Untitled-1-70.jpg"/></figure><p>Shiftry is an incredibly rare Pokémon in the Galar region, only appearing in the Dappled Grove wild area. Players can find it as a special overworld encounter, but even then, its appearance rate is incredibly low. The easier way to obtain this forest dweller is to evolve it from its pre-evolution, Nuzleaf. They are found in the same wild area but are more common in the grass on Route 5. Once caught, they must use a Leaf Stone for its evolution. Conveniently, there is one found in the western portion of Turffield, the town adjacent to Route 5. This early access to Shiftry is fantastic, as <a href="https://screenrant.com/pokemon-sword-shield-gym-leader-guide/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">the next gym leader in Hulbury</a>, who specializes in Water-types, is weak to Grass-type moves. In case this Leaf Stone was already used on another Pokémon, they can be continuously found at the Lake of Outrage. As only <em>Sword</em> players can encounter this version exclusive, <em>Shield</em> players must find a friend that’s willing to trade it.</p><p>Nuzleaf is relatively easy to catch, as they’re less than level 20 on Route 5. <a href="https://screenrant.com/false-swipe-hold-back-move-guide-pokemon-sword-shield/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Weaken it with non-lethal moves</a> to whittle down its health, and it should be caught fairly easily. Shiftry on the other hand are more difficult due to their higher attacking stats. They’re moveset in the wild is a bit more unpredictable, as it draws from every possible move it can learn naturally. This means they can have anything, from weak attacks like Tackle to strong ones like Leaf Blade. Bringing <a href="https://screenrant.com/find-catch-drampa-pokemon-sword-shield/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Pokémon with Sap Sipper </a>will negate their Grass moves, and Fighting, Fairy and Dark types will resist their Dark attacks. There’s a chance it will have the Early Bird ability, waking it from Sleep sooner than normal. As mentioned earlier, Chlorophyll is a much better ability to have, so it may be wise to flee and find another with that trait instead.</p><p><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/find-catch-sharpedo-pokemon-sword-shield/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">How to Find (&amp; Catch) Sharpedo in Pokémon Sword &amp; Shield</a></span></p><p><strong><em>Pokémon Sword &amp; Shield</em></strong> is available for Nintendo Switch</p> Beyond Fest 2020 Announces 7 Double Feature Nights at the Mission Tiki Drive-In in Los Angeles https://movieweb.com/beyond-fest-2020-movies-list-mission-tiki-drive-in/ - MovieWeb urn:uuid:02769017-9c4f-948b-4bcc-01b8ee1fd718 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 16:00:01 +0000 The Mission Tiki Drive-In will be host to Beyond Fest 2020 with seven nights of double-bill movies, including three world premieres.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?i=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?i=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=yRZJ37gXSEE:oajhxd-BMzY:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/movieweb_movienews/~4/yRZJ37gXSEE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> Jurassic World 3 Filming Is on Schedule, But There's Still Quite a Bit to Shoot https://movieweb.com/jurassic-world-dominion-shooting-schedule-colin-trevorrow/ - MovieWeb urn:uuid:449ac57d-d15f-6b8d-6f59-dd798e621d1d Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:56:41 +0000 Director Colin Trevorrow has provided an upbeat update on the filming of Jurassic World: Dominion.<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:I9og5sOYxJI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=I9og5sOYxJI" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?i=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?i=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.movieweb.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?a=fFRm2WdWguY:6-RFrEzggrI:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/movieweb_movienews?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/movieweb_movienews/~4/fFRm2WdWguY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> POLL: Which Non-DCEU Movie Characters Should Be in The Flash?

Star Elizabeth Potthast pleaded with her brother Charlie not to ruin her second wedding to Andrei Castravet. <figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Untitled-design-15.jpg"/></figure><p><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/90-day-fiance-happily-ever-after/"><em><strong>90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?</strong></em></a> couple Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei Castravet are having their long-awaited royal Moldovan wedding and Elizabeth's brother Charlie Potthast isn't too thrilled about it. He gets drunk and ruins the moment by accusing his sister of stealing their father's money.</p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Many <em>90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?</em> fans knew that Libby and Andrei's wedding wouldn't be a peaceful one. Someone from the American family was bound to cause a scene. While Libby's parents were delighted to see the lavish wedding arrangements, her siblings were taken aback. Libby's sister Jenn was seemingly jealous, but Charlie was on a whole different level of resentment. He got drunk to the extent that he didn't have control over his body movements (remember those awkward drunken dance moves?) He then started insulting <a href="https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-happily-ever-after-andrei-castravet-elizabeth-potthast-verbal-abuse/">his <em>90 Day Fiancé</em> brother-in-law</a> in front of all his relatives and friends. He made rude comments like, "<em>He might be royalty in Moldova, but he's a b*tch ass in America</em>" and "<em>The King of Moldova, not sh*t in America.</em>" </span></p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-elizabeths-family-andreis-past/">90 Day Fiancé: Too Late For Libby's Family to Worry About Andrei's Past?</a></span></p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Now, the sneak peek of <em>90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?</em> suggests that the <a href="https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-andrei-elizabeth-dad-chuck-fake/">usually hotheaded Andrei Castravet</a> acted responsibly this time, instead of picking a fight with Charlie. Chuck tells his daughter that Andrei was being "<em>the bigger man</em>," since he told Charlie that it wasn't the right time to fight. However, drunk Charlie isn't having it, and he calls his father "<em>soft</em>" because he lets his daughter and son-in-law spend his money. When Elizabeth asks her brother not to ruin her special day, Charlie says he doesn't "<em>give a f*ck.</em>" He continues, "<em>I'm going to protect (Chuck) And y'all aren't going to, like, steal his money.</em>" Elizabeth says, "<em>Nobody's stealing anybody's money. This is my night, like, this is my night. Please, don't ruin it.</em>" Check out the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIGYOmNfwQE" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">video</a> below:</span></p><iframe width="480" height="270" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mIGYOmNfwQE?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Charlie's outrageous behavior at such a special occasion can't be justified. Still, his resentment is understandable. During a confessional, he said, "<em>I think it was expensive. My dad has seven kids, so it's like, did you do this for every other kid? No, you didn't so, it's like, why are you doing this for him?</em>" Moldovan native Andrei hasn't been earning since he arrived in America. So, Chuck has been taking care of his daughter's family of three. Indeed, <a href="https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-andrei-castravet-defends-rude-elizabeth-potthast/">TLC star Andrei Castravet</a> and his wife and daughter have been living off of Chuck's money. </span></p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Moreover, the couple's Moldovan wedding was their second wedding. It was only necessary so they could get their daughter baptized. There was really no need to have such a grand wedding with live music, dancers, and singers. It seems like Andrei took advantage of Chuck, asked him for a large amount of money, and flaunted that in front of his guests. Andrei acted like it was all paid for with his own funds. While <a href="https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-elizabeth-family-shocked-moldovan-wedding/">the <em>90 Day Fiancé</em> couple</a> could have gone for a low-key celebration, they decided to go all out. <em><strong>90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? </strong></em>fans can't get enough of this drama.<em><strong> </strong></em></span></p><p style="text-align: center;"><span class="next-single"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Next: </span><a href="https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-andrei-elizabeth-castravet-instagram-happy-relationship/">90 Day Fiancé: Elizabeth's IG Shows a Happy, Carefree Relationship With Andrei</a></span></p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIGYOmNfwQE" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">TLC</a></span></p> Will Final Fantasy 16 Have Party Members | Screen Rant https://screenrant.com/ff16-final-fantasy-playable-characters-party-members-combat/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:dd5ac549-de75-5021-8e82-94c87873c2d1 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:41:31 +0000 After a reveal at the PS5 Showcase, Final Fantasy XVI is officially announced. But will the game have party members like its predecessors? <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/final-fantasy-16-combat.jpg"/></figure><p>Thanks to a surprise reveal trailer, fans have their first taste of <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/final-fantasy-16/"><strong><em>Final Fantasy XVI</em></strong></a>, the latest upcoming entry in the storied <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/final-fantasy/">Final Fantasy</a></em> franchise. <em>FF16</em> is a return to high fantasy for the series, and the trailer showed off a world of gods, monsters, and nobility. However, plot and gameplay details are a still little thin. Based on the trailer, it appeared that the game's protagonist is fighting alone, and rumors suggest <em>FF16</em> may be a solo adventure without typical party members.</p><p>First revealed during the PS5 Showcase, <em>Final Fantasy 16</em> is being promoted as a <a href="https://screenrant.com/final-fantasy-16-ff16-playstation-exclusive-ps5/">timed PlayStation 5 exclusive</a>. The trailer for <em>Final Fantasy 16</em> mostly showed characters and vague plot details, but it also showed off what appears to be combat in the game. This combat featured the presumed protagonist taking on popular <em>Final Fantasy</em> enemies like a goblin, a coeurl, and even a malboro. People couldn't help but notice that, in each instance, the protagonist appears to be fighting alone.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/final-fantasy-ff7-remake-2-new-party-members/">FF7 Remake Part 2: What NEW Playable Characters Should Appear</a></span></p><p>Because of the way the combat appears, many people are speculating <a href="https://screenrant.com/final-fantasy-xvi-release-date-story-gameplay-details/"><em>FF16</em> is a solo adventure</a> where players control a single hero without any party members. This would be a far cry from traditional games, since every mainline <em>Final Fantasy</em> game typically gives players a colorful cast of playable party members. Even in games like <em>FF15</em>, which featured party members controlled by AI, the hero still had friends tagging along for the journey. So, will<em> Final Fantasy 16</em> actually break from a tradition that's lasted over 30 years?</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/final-fantasy-16-combat-1.jpg"/></figure><p>It's certainly possible that the <em>FF16</em> trailer already showed off one party member during a combat scene, although it was easy to miss. In the footage of the hero fighting a goblin, another character can be seen running around nearby with a sword drawn. It may simply be a background character performing a general background action, but it could also be an ally. However, when watching the trailer, it's just as important to focus on what viewers DON'T see.</p><p>In the <a href="https://screenrant.com/final-fantasy-16-update-schedule-2021-ff16-ffxvi/">combat footage shown from <em>FF16</em></a>, there are no visible menus or HUD layouts. Even at the start of <em>Final Fantasy 16's </em>trailer, there's a disclaimer stating all the footage is running from a PC. So, what does all of this mean? It means <em>Final Fantasy 16's</em> footage was pre-rendered for the trailer, and therefore isn't the final product found in the game. <em>Final Fantasy 16</em> is likely years off, which means final footage of combat would undoubtedly show at least a small menu or HUD layout on the screen. That also means party members will probably appear in the final product, too.</p><p>Much in the way that the earliest combat videos for <em>FF15</em> showed Noctis, or <a href="https://screenrant.com/final-fantasy-7-remake-combat-better/"><em>FF7 Remake</em>'s combat</a> initially focused on Cloud, the trailer for <em>Final Fantasy 16</em> is teasing combat by using the protagonist's character model. It's certainly still possible <em>FF16</em> will break with tradition and only feature one party member, but that seems highly unlikely. Even if the party members are controlled by AI, there will still probably be friends joining the hero in his journey.</p><p>Until more information is shared regarding <em>Final Fantasy 16</em>, fans can only speculate on the reveal trailer. More details on the game, which is releasing on the PlayStation 5, has been reported to not arrive until 2021, so <strong><em>Final Fantasy 16</em></strong> itself may be a few years away.</p><p><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/final-fantasy-ff16-trailer-easter-eggs-callbacks-secrets/">Every Final Fantasy Reference In The FF16 Trailer</a></span></p> Star Trek's Future Can Perfectly Redeem Wesley Crusher https://screenrant.com/star-trek-wesley-crusher-wil-wheaton-return-fix-lower-decks/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:d4fbf003-eb6a-a4c2-f30f-f0eeb61d0649 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:40:31 +0000 After Wil Wheaton expressed a desire to reprise his Wesley Crusher role in Star Trek: Lower Decks, the franchise can redeem this maligned character. <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Wil-Wheaton-as-Wesley-Crusher-in-Star-Trek-Next-Generation-and-Mariner-Boimler-and-Rutherford-in-Lower-Decks.jpg"/></figure><p>The future of <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-trek/"><strong><em>Star Trek</em></strong></a> can redeem the oft-maligned, some might say misunderstood, Wesley Crusher. Introduced in <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-trek-the-next-generation/">Star Trek: The Next Generation</a></em>, Wil Wheaton's Wesley Crusher was the child prodigy of the Enterprise, and the son of chief medical officer, <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-picard-season-2-beverly-crusher-romance/">Beverly Crusher</a>. Fan reaction to Wesley was notoriously negative, with critics citing the character's annoying personality and uncanny habit of saving the day as irksome traits. While it's fair to say that Wesley Crusher wasn't the most well-written character in <em>Star Trek: The Next Generation</em>, it's also true that some of the backlash derived simply from having a teenager on the bridge of the Enterprise.</p><p>Unfortunately, the criticism of Wesley as a character seeped over to Wil Wheaton himself, and the actor has spoken openly in recent years about his struggles dealing with such intense scrutiny at a young age. Since <em>Star Trek</em>, Wheaton has appeared as an exaggerated (hopefully) version of himself in <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/the-big-bang-theory/">The Big Bang Theory</a></em>, a role that made light of the Wesley Crusher criticism. Expanding his profile as an actor, blogger, writer and general voice in the realm of geekdom, <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-lower-decks-wesley-crusher-return-wil-wheaton/">Wheaton</a> has long since stepped out of Wesley's shadow, and perhaps because of this, recently expressed an interest in returning to the <em>Star Trek</em> fold as part of the new animated series, <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-trek-lower-decks/">Star Trek: Lower Decks</a></em>.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-tng-wrath-khan-genesis-device-problem/">Wrath of Khan's Genesis Device Is Still A Problem In Star Trek TNG's Era</a></span></p><p>Once upon a time, the return of Wesley Crusher in <em>Star Trek</em> might've seemed unlikely, but <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em> provides the perfect backdrop to reintroduce the character. As Wheaton himself points out, making a comeback in animated form comes with certain practical benefits. After Wesley departed with The Traveler, he became somewhat of a mystical figure. The character made a cameo in <em>Star Trek: Nemesis</em>, hinting that Wesley had since joined <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-lower-decks-riker-titan-worst-officer/">Starfleet</a>, but there remains a cloud of mystery over Wesley's time with the traveler, and those transcendent qualities would be better served in animation than in a more serious, grounded outlet such as <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/star-trek-picard/">Star Trek: Picard</a></em>.</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Wesley-Crusher.png"/></figure><p>The irreverent comedic stylings of <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em> feel like fertile ground for a future Wesley to explore. Wil Wheaton showcased his comic chops in <em>The Big Bang Theory</em>, and <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em> season 1 has been packed with knowing references to wider <em>Trek</em> lore, along with a few meta nods for long-time fans. This lighter tone would give a returning Wesley Crusher more freedom than he was afforded in <em>The Next Generation</em>, and the show could even reference the Wesley criticism directly, turning the backlash into a gag in true "<em>we can laugh about it now</em>" fashion<em>. </em><a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-lower-decks-enterprise-bad-cerritos-better/"><em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em></a> has occasionally dipped into parody territory, and mocking the contemporary fan reaction to Wesley Crusher would fit the show's remit. <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em> has name-dropped The Traveler and made several references to the Q race wreaking havoc in the galaxy. A post-Traveler Wesley could perform the same function, appearing as a special guest to give Boimler and Mariner a headache before disappearing into the ether once again.</p><p>A live-action return for Wesley Crusher in <em>Star Trek: Picard</em> season 2 remains a welcome proposition. A <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-captain-jean-luc-picard-tng-actors-cast/">Jean-Luc Picard</a> reunion with Wesley as a fully-grown adult might afford Wil Wheaton's character a measure of redemption after his tarnished teenage stint in <em>The Next Generation</em>. However, the intense, darker tone of Picard's solo series doesn't fit Wesley Crusher as naturally as the colorful, ground-level world of <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em>.</p><p>There's a certain poetic similarity between Wesley Crusher and <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em>. Both triggered a decisive reaction after debuting, receiving backlash from <em>Star Trek</em> fans who deemed them too much of a departure for the franchise. Since premiering in August, <em>Star Trek: Lower Decks</em> has been heavily criticized by fans, many of whom accuse the animated series of not being "<em>real <strong>Star Trek</strong></em>." Since that's a position Wesley Crusher can probably empathize with, there's surely fun to be had if ever the two collided.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><span class="next-single">More: <a href="https://screenrant.com/star-trek-tribute-chief-obrien-lower-decks-explained/">Star Trek Gives A Massive Tribute To Chief O'Brien</a></span></p> 90 Day Fiancé: All About Darcey Silva's Marriage To Ex Frank Bollok https://screenrant.com/90-day-fiance-darcey-silva-marriage-frank-bollok/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:b12ef6aa-812a-326f-65cd-888fc9a44125 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:36:15 +0000 Darcey &amp; Stacey fans have been curious about Aniko and Aspen&#039;s father, Frank Bollok.

The couple celebrated their baby shower last week with Darcey and Bollok’s daughters present at the party. Darcey’s relationship with her ex seems to be cordial, with Bollok and his wife both close to Aniko and Aspen, as is evident in his social media posts.</p><p>Meanwhile, Darcey is experiencing a lot of love in her new romance with Georgi, from his rose oil massages to their pasta dates.

Here&#039;s how players can learn how to ride them. <figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Spelunky-2-Turkey.jpg"/></figure><p>Players are able to ride Turkeys in <a href="https://screenrant.com/search/spelunky/"><strong><em>Spelunky 2</em></strong></a>. This guide will help players learn how to ride Turkeys and explain the benefits of doing so. <em>Spelunky 2</em> takes everything that was great about the original game and continues to build on it. The levels to explore are bigger than ever and even features a new dimension to explore. While on the normal playing field, players will be able to jump back into a hidden dimension. These are typically littered with treasure to collect. Along the way, players may run into a turkey. Here's how players can ride a turkey and explain the benefits of doing so.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/spelunky-2-game-review/">Spelunky 2 Review: Iterating on a Gold Standard</a></span></p><p><em>Spelunky 2</em> is the textbook definition of what to do when creating a sequel to a popular game. It builds on all the mechanics from the original and just goes bigger than ever before. The game is also best experienced when playing with friends since up to 4 players can team up and explore dungeons. The game even features a deeper mystery that encourages all players to <a href="https://screenrant.com/spelunky-2-release-september-2020-playstation-4/">work together to solve</a>. Players can also encounter Dogs when exploring dungeons. Getting the Dog to the end of the level is not only the right thing to do, but they also provide additional HP to the player for their kindness. Turkeys on the other hand are used as rideable mounts. Here's how players can ride them in <em>Spelunky 2</em>.</p><figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Spelunky-2-Launch-Trailer-Screenshot.png"/></figure><p>To ride a Turkey, the player <a href="https://screenrant.com/spelunky-olmec-boss-fight/">will need to jump on it</a>. The turkey will frantically run around for a second before tiring itself out. Now, the player can dismount than the turkey will remain in place. This is great if the player needs to open a chest or place a bomb. When riding back on the turkey, players can glide for a limited-time and also perform a double jump. Its physical attack is about the same range as the player's whip. The turkey will be essential for clearing some gaps in <em>Spelunky 2</em>. Make sure to keep them around when they are needed.</p><p><em>Spelunky 2</em> released earlier this September and is one of the <a href="https://screenrant.com/spelunky-2-release-date-delayed-2020/">best sequels to release this year</a>. The game even features a side-quest where players need to hunk for a turkey and give it to Yang. Not only that, but the turkey can actually be cooked. This will provide extra life to the player. Is this something players are going to be ethically comfortable with? That's a conversation <em>Spelunky 2 </em>fans are going to need to have with themselves.</p><p><span class="next-single">More: <a href="https://screenrant.com/spelunky-2-steam-release-date-soon-after-ps4/">Spelunky 2 Aiming For Steam Release Soon After PS4 Launch</a></span></p><p><strong><em>Spelunky 2</em></strong> is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC.</p> Denzel Washington Recalls Getting Emotional When He Saw Chadwick Boseman At The Black Panther Premiere https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2555021/denzel-washington-recalls-getting-emotional-when-he-saw-chadwick-boseman-at-the-black-panther-premiere Cinema Blend News urn:uuid:c6a60e48-24d9-23c8-0084-e0696d0138ca Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:35:32 +0000 <p><em>Black Panther</em> was an emotional experience for many people, including the Oscar-winning actor.</p> ‘Misbehaviour’ Review: A Well-Intentioned but Scrambled Ode to Second Wave Feminism https://collider.com/misbehaviour-review-keira-knightley-gugu-mbatha-raw/ Collider urn:uuid:82290ed4-f236-a9a1-f8d4-0faeb2049a27 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:31:28 +0000 There’s a lot of plot happening in Philippa Lowthorpe’s Misbehaviour. Based on the true story of the protest at the 1970 Miss World competition, screenwriters Rebecca Frayn and Gaby Chiappe work to squeeze in as much as possible about the conflicting personalities in the burgeoning Women’s Liberation Movement, the people working behind the scenes of Miss World, and the desires of the contestants themselves, particularly the black women whose participation means something different than the white contestants. Trying to cover all these stories is an admirable goal, but Misbehaviour never quite cracks it so it jumps around … DC Universe Infinite: DC’s Digital Comic Book Service Rebranded https://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/1149174-dc-universe-infinite?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=dc-universe-infinite "ComingSoon.net - 30 most recent stories" urn:uuid:f33fcb5e-f2c9-8ef0-8191-a1c0e3fd389e Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:30:12 +0000 <p>HBO Max will be the new home for DC Universe originals</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/1149174-dc-universe-infinite">DC Universe Infinite: DC&#8217;s Digital Comic Book Service Rebranded</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.comingsoon.net">ComingSoon.net</a>.</p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-1149176" src="https://cdn2-www.comingsoon.net/assets/uploads/2020/09/mail-1.jpeg" alt="DC Universe Infinite: DC's Digital Comic Book Service Rebranded" width="640" height="404" srcset="https://cdn3-www.comingsoon.net/assets/uploads/2020/09/mail-1.jpeg 800w, https://cdn3-www.comingsoon.net/assets/uploads/2020/09/mail-1-768x485.jpeg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px"></img></p> <h2>DC Universe Infinite: DC’s Digital Comic Book Service Rebranded</h2> <p>Calling all comic book fans to Explore the Multiverse!

Only the lightsabers of Darth Vader and Mace Windu are pictured, but there will likely be others available. These lightsabers are more on the expensive side, ranging <span class="ILfuVd"><span class="hgKElc">from $109 to $149 plus tax in the park, but keep in mind that they don&#8217;t come with a blade.

You&#8217;ll want to check out Disney&#8217;s shop to see what else will be available, and make sure you stock up sooner than later. Limited quantities will be available for a limited time, and this will be your best chance at surprising the<em> Star Wars</em> fan in your life with some unique merch that you can&#8217;t get anywhere else.

Abrams has teased a proper <em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/cloverfield/">Cloverfield</a></strong></em> sequel for years, but is the movie ever actually going to happen? 2008's <em>Cloverfield</em> became a sleeper hit within the horror movie world, leaving fans clamoring for a continuation of the story. <a href="https://screenrant.com/10-cloverfield-lane-original-movie-connection/">Spiritual sequels <em>10 Cloverfield Lane</em></a> and <em>The Cloverfield Paradox</em> have been released in the meantime, but they never finished the story that was first told in the original movie.</p><p><em>Cloverfield</em> follows a group of New Yorkers as they attempt to survive a monster attack on the city. The next movie in the franchise, <em>10 Cloverfield Lane</em>, centers on a group of survivors riding out a simultaneous attack across the country. <em>The Cloverfield Paradox</em>, which is the third installment in the series, is a trippy look at the scientists who caused the very rift that unleashed the <em>Cloverfield</em> monster. <em>10 Cloverfield Lane </em>and <em>The Cloverfield Paradox</em> may fill in small gaps for <em>Cloverfield</em>, but they function more like companion pieces than a true sequel to the original.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-movie-connection-911-american-history/">Cloverfield's Surprising Connection To American History Explained</a></span></p><p>Given the lasting legacy of <em>Cloverfield</em>, it's only natural that fans have been pushing for a sequel for more than a decade. But given the unorthodox nature of the franchise on top of Abrams' recent Warner Bros. deal, it's time fans let go of that hope, as another <em>Cloverfield </em>movie seems very unlikely at this stage. In fact, the series is better off if a true <em>Cloverfield</em> series is never made — here's why.</p><figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/pjimage-21.jpg"/></figure><p><em>Cloverfield</em> isn't a franchise in the traditional sense of the word. In fact, it was never intended to be a franchise from the start. Each movie that followed <em>Cloverfield</em> was reworked once it was already written to fit into the existing universe. Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, acquired each respective script and tweaked them to subtly connect to <em>Cloverfield</em>. Abrams' reasoning for reverse engineering each of these films was none other than that he essentially just thought each film had potential to work in the <em>Cloverfield</em> universe.</p><p>With <em>10 Cloverfield</em><em> Lane</em>, Abrams got lucky that his strategy happened to work.<em> 10 Cloverfield Lane</em> established itself as a solid, standalone horror movie — the <em>Cloverfield</em> twist at the end was just a fun kicker. But <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-paradox-movie-undermined-franchise-potential-reason/">The Cloverfield Paradox</a></em> was too intent on reworking a movie so that it could specifically answer questions posed in <em>Cloverfield, </em>which didn't work out as well.</p><p>The negative response might have been the final straw in closing the door on the series for good. The varying degrees of reception among the other <em>Cloverfield</em> movies just goes to show that sequels in this franchise won't really work in the traditional sense. <em>Cloverfield</em> was a unique and complete story in itself. The horror movie left its audience with the idea that not everything is meant to be understood. The franchise's second installment understood that. <em>The Cloverfield Paradox</em> did not, causing it to be <a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-paradox-rotten-tomatoes/">a failure among critics and fans</a> alike. A true <em>Cloverfield</em> sequel would likely go down the same path as the movie's most recent addition — trying to answer questions better left unspoken, resulting in a clunky and confusing movie.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-movie-john-carpenter-easter-egg-explained/">Cloverfield's John Carpenter Easter Egg Explained</a></span></p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Underwater-And-Overlord.jpg"/></figure><p>As each existing <em>Cloverfield</em> sequel was pieced together from a standalone movie, fans seem to be constantly on the lookout for the <a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-4-5-movies-rumored-not-released-reason/">next potential <em>Cloverfield </em>4 and 5</a>. The Abrams-produced WWII zombie movie, <em>Overlord,</em> was constantly plagued with rumors that it would end up being a <em>Cloverfield </em>movie, which turned out to be inaccurate. T.J. Miller, who appeared in the original <em>Cloverfield </em>movie, even took to Instagram to state that the 2020 movie, <em>Underwater,</em> would fit into the greater <em>Cloverfield</em> universe. Once again, the movie proved to be a standalone feature.</p><p>This doesn't bode well for future installments of the <em>Cloverfield</em> series. With such persistent rumors surrounding both <em>Overlord </em>and <em><a href="https://screenrant.com/underwater-connections-cloverfield-movies-explained/">Underwater</a></em>, it begs the question of if these movies were initially going to be roped into the franchise, but the idea was ultimately abandoned. Perhaps this means that Abrams has creatively moved on from the <em>Cloverfield </em>series, despite promises of a true sequel coming one day. Or maybe he just doesn't feel the same level of fan excitement as he once did a decade ago. Whatever the reason may be, it seems as if the <em>Cloverfield</em> franchise has lost steam over the last few years, making a new film unlikely.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Bad-Robot-logo-over-Cloverfield-poster.jpg"/></figure><p>There's another significant factor at play that could <a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-4-movie-unlikely-release-reason/">prevent a true <em>Cloverfield</em> sequel from ever happening</a>. J.J. Abrams' deal with Warner Bros could pose a threat to <em>Cloverfield</em>'s future. Abrams and Bad Robot released every previous <em>Cloverfield</em> movie under Paramount Pictures. Under that deal, Abrams was able to release <em>Cloverfield </em>films however secretly and abruptly he so desired. Abrams had begun teasing a true <em>Cloverfield</em> sequel before the deal with Warner Bros. occurred, but now that this career shift has taken place, the rights to the <em>Cloverfield</em> franchise have become murky.</p><p>This new deal means that WarnerMedia has exclusive rights to all of Abrams' projects moving forward; the catch is that the <em>Cloverfield</em> brand may still be owned by Paramount. This means that Abrams might not have the legal rights to create new movies under the <em>Cloverfield</em> name, meaning that it'd be too difficult to produce a new <em>Cloverfield</em> sequel.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/cloverfield-theory-emmett-real-villain-10-cloverfield-lane/">Cloverfield Theory: Emmett Is The REAL Villain In 10 Cloverfield Lane</a></span></p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/JJ-Abrams-Cloverfield.jpg"/></figure><p>There is one way that the <em>Cloverfield</em> series could move forward, and that would be without J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot's involvement. If Paramount does truly own the rights to the series, this may be their only option — and that's not necessarily a bad thing. As evidenced with the <em>Star Wars</em> sequel trilogy, J.J. Abrams is notorious for being unable to end movies he has directed well. He's great at kicking off a story, but struggles to bring them to a satisfying conclusion. While he is only attached to the <a href="https://screenrant.com/all-cloverfield-movies-ranked-best-worst/"><em>Cloverfield</em> movies</a> as a producer, this is still shown by the strong start with <em>Cloverfield </em>and <em>10 Cloverfield Lane</em> and weak finale with <em>The Cloverfield Paradox</em>. So, the best option would be to give the series a fresh set of eyes. Even with this possibility, it's highly unlikely that a new movie will be green-lit.</p><p>The right call would be to abandon the idea of a true sequel all together. The original <em>Cloverfield</em> was a great standalone horror movie that took fans by surprise, and has kept them talking for over a decade. Efforts to continue the series have been a struggle, because it's not really a story that needs to be continued. <a href="https://screenrant.com/found-footage-horror-movies-blair-witch-evolution-explained/"><em>Cloverfield</em> reinvigorated the found footage genre</a> for a new generation of horror fans. That's a strong legacy in itself, so for that reason, the franchise should be laid to rest. Leaving fans wanting more instead of turning the series into a joke is how <em><strong>Cloverfield</strong></em> deserves to be remembered.</p><p><span class="next-single">More: <a href="https://screenrant.com/10-cloverfield-lane-quarantine-life-commentary/">What 10 Cloverfield Lane Gets Right About Life In Quarantine</a></span></p> The Worst Villain in Marvel's Universe is A Literal Joke https://screenrant.com/marvel-worst-villain-taskmaster-redshirt/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:60007740-3990-a602-b2ce-ba16382016ca Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:23:20 +0000 As Taskmaster searches for answers in Taskmaster #3, the worst Marvel villain, appropriately named Redshirt, proves he&#039;s a literal joke. <figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Redshirt-and-Star-Trek.jpg"/></figure><p>The <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/marvel-comics/"><strong>Marvel Universe</strong></a> is filled with noteworthy villains as well as some of <a href="https://www.cbr.com/x-men-original-mutants-worst-villain/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">the worst</a>.

Some Marvel villains are absolutely terrifying to the point where they shroud other villains in fear such as Galactus who's afraid of <a href="https://screenrant.com/galactus-scared-black-winter-thor/">Thor's newest villain</a>. While others are ridiculous enough to make the reader laugh-out-loud and one villain in <em>Taskmaster #3</em> is ludicrous enough to make his own teammates laugh.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-knull-power-upgrade-wraith-exolon/">Marvel's Most Dangerous Villain Just Received An Alien Upgrade</a>.</span></p><p>In Fred van Lente, Jefte Palo, Jean-Francois Beaulieu, and Dave Lanphear's <em>Taskmaster,</em> <a href="https://screenrant.com/taskmaster-evil-marvel-comics-teacher/">Marvel's most twisted teacher</a> searches for answers in a strange Nazi village with a woman named Mercedes, a new league of henchman drifts above in what looks like a knockoff <a href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-shield-helicarrier-facts-trivia-mcu-deadpool/">S.H.I.E.L.D.

After the leader who's dressed all in red tells his comrades his plan, he also tells them a name he proposes for the team - which is the Minions' International Liberation Front as well as his villainous alias - Redshirt The Über-Henchman. For obvious and possibly obscure reasons, one of the Redshirt's comrades begins to laugh at the names.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/redshirt-gets-laughed-at.jpg"/></figure><p>One obvious reason as to why one of Redshirt's comrades begins to laugh and ridicule him after he says the names is that the acronym for Minions' International Liberation Front is M.I.L.F. The other reason may not be so obvious unless one is a fan of the original <em>Star Trek</em> TV series or is familiar with the red shirt stock character. A redshirt stock character is one that stereotypically dies early on in a film or TV series and the concept begins with the original <em>Star Trek</em> series where if a character is wearing a red shirt, then they will probably die soon. After the laughing henchman reveals to Redshirt why he's laughing, he says, "<em>You're going to kill me now, aren't you?</em>" And without hesitation, Redshirt beheads the henchman.</p><p>It's rather obvious that Redshirt is one of <strong>Marvel's</strong> worst villains as he can't even come up with great names for himself and for his new league of henchmen. But don't worry, the humor doesn't stop there because in <em>Taskmaster #4 </em>as Redshirt charges at Taskmaster with his comrades he shouts, "<em>Follow Redshirt men!

One of the new shows was <em>Harley Quinn</em>, <a href="https://screenrant.com/harley-quinn-margot-robbie-kaley-cuoco-feud-denied/">starring Kaley Cuoco</a> as the voice of the incredibly popular DC anti-hero. The first two seasons were well-received, but the audience was smaller as a result of DC Universe's subscriber base.</p><p>Over the last several weeks, interest in <em>Harley Quinn</em> has grown tremendously thanks to the <a href="https://screenrant.com/harley-quinn-tv-show-streaming-hbo-max/">show being made available on HBO Max</a>. The renewed interest in the series reignited conversations about the show's future, especially amid reports that HBO Max will be the home of future seasons of any prior DC Universe content. Fans continued to hold out hope that <em>Harley Quinn</em> would be picked up for season 3, and now it is official.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/batman-superman-movie-martha-scene-harley-quinn-joke/">Harley Quinn Mocks Batman v Superman's Martha Moment</a></span></p><p>As part of the news that <a href="https://screenrant.com/dc-universe-infinite-comic-subscription-cost/">DC Universe is being rebranded as a comics-only service</a>, it has been announced that HBO Max has renewed <em>Harley Quinn</em> for season 3. At this time, it is not confirmed when the new season of <em>Harley Quinn</em> will be released. HBO Max made the announcement official by sharing an image of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.</p><iframe width="320" height="320" frameborder="0" src="https://twitter.com/hbomax/status/1306973250954489857" frameborder="0"></iframe><p>The swell of support for <em>Harley Quinn</em> to get a third season and its performance on HBO Max are likely contributing factors behind the decision to renew the show. <em>The Suicide Squad</em> director James Gunn was among those who took to social media to campaign for season 3 to be announced. It was recently reported that the fate of <a href="https://screenrant.com/harley-quinn-season-3-budget-concerns-hbo-max/"><em>Harley Quinn</em> depended on the ongoing budget negotiations</a> that were interrupted by HBO Max leadership shakeups. But, now we know that new HBO Max head Casey Bloys was able to close the deal.</p><p>As for what the third season of <em>Harley Quinn</em> will be about, the decision to lead with a poster that teases <a href="https://screenrant.com/harley-poison-ivy-romance-began-dc-comics/">Harley and Poison Ivy's romantic relationship</a> is a strong indication that their budding romance will be central to what comes next. The season two finale finally saw them both admit how they felt about one another and teased that they'd be in a relationship if <em>Harley Quinn</em> continued. It should also be expected that some of the show's other frequent and popular characters like Kite-Man and Bane will be back, and other major DC heroes and villains will also surely appear. Even though it isn't known when season 3 of <strong><em>Harley Quinn</em></strong> will arrive, at least fans know that it is coming and can continuing rewatching the first two seasons on HBO Max.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><span class="next-single">MORE: <a href="https://screenrant.com/harley-quinn-season-2-finale-twist-ending-gordon/">How The Harley Quinn Season 2 Finale's Shocking Twist Redeemed Jim Gordon</a></span></p><p>Source: HBO Max</p> Why Bloodborne Is The Most Overrated FromSoftware Soulsborne Game https://screenrant.com/bloodborne-worst-fromsoftware-game-dark-souls-sekiro-soulslike/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:014b943d-b457-0e0c-47f2-fc4577e01edc Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:21:10 +0000 Bloodborne is frequently praised as one of the best Fromsoftware offerings to date, but its lack of variety in locals and items holds it back. <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/bloodborne-overrated.jpg"/></figure><p><em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/bloodborne/">Bloodborne</a></strong></em> has been hailed as the pinnacle of FromSoftware's "Soulsborne" games ever since its release back in 2015, but the game's consistent and uniform themes bring the game down when compared to the variety displayed by the <strong><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/dark-souls/">Dark Souls</a> </em></strong>series.<em> Dark Souls</em> had a modest start with <a href="https://screenrant.com/demons-souls-release-gameplay-trailer-ps5-showcase/"><em>Demon's Souls</em> on the PlayStation 3</a>, and the game's gorgeous remaster is evidence alone that the <em>Souls</em> series is a juggernaut in the industry. <em>Bloodborne</em> is the game that helped many players finally understand what made FromSoftware's brutal titles so appealing, but it leaves out some key elements that prevent it from reaching the peak of its medieval-inspired siblings.</p><p><em>Bloodborne</em> borrows the core gameplay of the <em>Souls</em> franchise and dresses it up in a gory, Victorian London aesthetic that gives the experience an entirely unique style. From the weaponry used to the outlandishly mutated monsters, <em>Bloodborne</em> is just as <a href="https://screenrant.com/dark-souls-depression-elden-ring-fromsoftware-games-themes/">bleak and oppressive as the <em>Dark</em> <em>Souls</em></a> games, but with a brand new flavor and a much faster-paced combat system that rewards aggressive playstyles. The issue with <em>Bloodborne</em> isn't its core gameplay, but rather its lack of variety and customization.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/bloodborne-2-dark-souls-weapons-spells-customization-options/">What Bloodborne 2 Can Learn From Dark Souls 3</a></span></p><p><em>Dark Souls</em> is a game about experimentation and discovery, even down to how the game's vast amount of weapons and items may benefit each individual player. In <em>Dark Souls</em>, there are dozens of weapons, rings, spells, and armor sets that completely change the way players engage enemies in combat. Players who prefer using spells will typically maintain their distance and rely on picking off foes from afar, but players can also dress up in massive suits of armor and wield cartoonishly large axes so they can crush anything that moves. There are so many ways to mix and match items for different types of characters, and this is a huge part of what makes <a href="https://screenrant.com/dark-souls-bloodborne-differences-combat-compared-guns-block/"><em>Dark Souls</em> such an enjoyable experience</a> - there's always the option to go through the adventure again with an alternate build that plays in a brand-new way.</p><figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Amelia-Sides.jpg"/></figure><p>This element technically exists in <em>Bloodborne</em>, but it's in a sad state compared to the <em>Dark Souls</em> titles. Without purchasing the DLC, <em>Bloodborne</em> players will have access to a grand total of 15 weapons, whereas <em>Dark Souls 3</em> offers its players over 100 weapons. This gigantic difference in the number of options players have when designing their characters is a major reason why <em>Bloodborne</em> struggles to compete with <em>Dark Souls</em>. There are also a plethora of weapons, like the <a href="https://screenrant.com/bloodborne-secrets-hidden-damage-serrated-righteous-trick-weapon/">Saw Spear and the Saw Cleaver</a>, that share many of the same moves, so not even all 15 of <em>Bloodborne's</em> weapons are entirely unique. Armor sets in<em> Bloodborne</em> also offer very minuscule differences in stats or passive abilities, so they're mostly used to simply change the look of one's avatar.</p><p>Not only does this change have a negative impact on repeat playthroughs, since players are extremely limited in terms of what their options are throughout the entire experience, but it also severely weakens the game's PVP. Fighting other players online was the second reason that <em>Dark Souls</em> had such enormous replay value, but because everyone wields the same few weapons with very little variety in <em>Bloodborne</em>, it's meta ended up being far less dynamic and engaging than even <em>Dark Souls'</em> mod-infested competitions. In the <a href="https://screenrant.com/elden-ring-release-date-games-like-dark-souls/"><em>Dark Souls</em> series</a>, it was very common to duel against all kinds of creative and fun builds which helped keep the competitive scene fresh, but <em>Bloodborne</em> fails miserably in this department.</p><p>Even <a href="https://screenrant.com/bloodborne-boss-hardest-enemy-tips-tricks-strategy-cheese/"><em>Bloodborne's</em> iconic setting</a> limited the creativity of the developers, and each area felt far too similar to the last. Most enemies are similar grotesque abominations, and they're mostly found in nearly-identical gothic London city-inspired locals.<em> Dark Souls</em> takes players through lush forests with reanimated golems, ruined cities half-buried in pools of magma and infested with demons, and a gorgeous abandoned citadel bathed in the golden glow of the setting sun above. <em>Dark Souls</em> may lack the consistent themes present in <em>Bloodborne</em>, but it allows each area to feel entirely unique instead of constantly retreading tired old ground. <em><strong>Bloodborne</strong></em> is still a solid game in its own right, but <strong><em>Dark Souls</em></strong>' ability to keep players guessing at all times is what gives it an edge over its gothic little brother.</p><p><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/bloodborne-pc-port-release-rumors-changes-graphics-mods/">How Bloodborne On PC Can Improve From The PS4 Version</a></span></p> The Boys Star Hints At Homelander v Starlight Fight In Season 2 https://screenrant.com/boys-season-2-homelander-starlight-fight-erin-moriarty/ Screen Rant urn:uuid:c75ddbbf-8947-6f11-6aaf-bec90a59450b Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:17:18 +0000 The Boys star Erin Moriarty hints at a possible Homelander v. Starlight showdown in season two, saying her defiance and Homelander&#039;s wrath do not mix. <figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-Boys-Homelander-Starlight-.jpg"/></figure><p style="text-align: center;"><strong>WARNING: </strong><strong>The following contains spoilers for the first 4 episodes of <em>The Boys</em> season 2.</strong></p><p><strong><em><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/the-boys/">The Boys</a> </em></strong>star Erin Moriarty hints at a possible fight between Homelander (Antony Starr) and Starlight coming in season two. One of the popular superhero show's lead cast members, Moriarty plays Starlight, a member of the Seven who successfully leaked a sample of Compound V to the media. However, her hesitation to kill Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) put Starlight on Homelander's murderous radar, and the two characters have had a tension-filled relationship ever since.</p><p>Although Starlight was successful in getting the world to find out how <a href="https://screenrant.com/boys-superhero-vought-corporation-business-how-long/">Vought International really made superheroes</a>, her heroic efforts appear to have been in vain so far. Vought blamed Compound V on Madelyn Stillwell (Elisabeth Shue), and made it appear as if Stormfront (Aya Cash) had successfully killed Kimiko's (Karen Fukuhara) brother Kenji (Abraham Lim), and blamed him for the terrible slaughter of a building full of innocent people. In case things weren't already bad enough either, Starlight barely made it out of an elevator alive in episode four, after Homelander nearly killed her for disobeying his order to kill Hughie. Rather than backing down from Homelander's wrath though, the character stood up for herself, continuing her growth this season. But her growing defiance doesn't necessarily mean she's any more free from Homelander's rage.</p><p><span class="related-single">Related: <a href="https://screenrant.com/boys-season-2-starlight-powers-origins-explained/">The Boys Season 2: Starlight's Powers &amp; Origins Explained</a></span></p><p>In a recent interview with <em><a href="https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/the-boys-season-2-erin-moriarty-starlight-defiance" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">SyFy Wire</a></em>,<em> </em>Moriarty talked in detail about Starlight's character development throughout <em>The Boys</em> season 2<em>. </em>Moriarty also teased that <a href="https://screenrant.com/the-boys-homelander-terrible-parenting-antony-starr-stitches/">Homelander's relationship with his son</a> will greatly impact the villain's mood in the new season, and that a moment of defiance from Starlight may come at a time when Homelander's mood is yet again at a low point. That, unfortunately, means fans may be in store for another tense confrontation between the two characters this season:</p><blockquote><p><em>Homelander is the head of The Seven...Whatever he is going through has a ripple effect through all of Vought... He’s a moody dude. So, if he’s not feeling too good and he’s having a bad mood, everyone is going to feel it, especially Starlight because she’s pretty defiant and rebellious. All I will say is that he has a tumultuous relationship with this child in Season 2. At times, when that relationship is dipping and Annie is maybe in a peak of defiance, she is definitely going to feel his wrath.</em></p></blockquote><figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/The-Boys-Season-2-Homelander-And-Starlight.jpg"/></figure><p>Do Moriarty's comments mean that the remaining four episodes of <em>The Boys</em> season two could feature a Homelander versus Starlight battle? Moriarty did acknowledge later in the same interview that, "<em>One wrong step and Homelander would kill her,</em>" further teasing the tense conflict between the two characters this season. It's also worth noting that <em>The Boys</em> showrunner Eric Kripke has previously said that <a href="https://screenrant.com/boys-season-2-homelander-psychological-weakness-eric-kripke/">Homelander's only weakness is psychological attacks</a>, which means Starlight would have a hard time winning any kind of physical confrontation with Homelander. To make matters worse, Stormfront appears to be getting in Homelander's head more and more this season, and the already violent character only seems to be getting more unpredictable as a result.</p><p>No matter what, it's hard to imagine an actual fight between Homelander and Starlight going at all well for the latter character. It seems unlikely that Homelander would be killed off anytime soon, as the character has slipped quite comfortably into the show's lead villain role. There's been nothing to suggest up until this point that the show would want to get rid of a villain as dangerous as Homelander anytime soon either, especially since <a href="https://screenrant.com/boys-season-3-renewed-amazon-after-show/"><em>The Boys</em> has already been renewed for a third season</a>. However, <em><strong>The Boys</strong></em> is all about subverting expectations, so the future of its story is about as unpredictable as Homelander's mood. It definitely would be an empowering moment for Starlight to take on Homelander, and even more so if she managed to make it out of the battle alive. Based on Moriarty's comments too, it seems inevitable that the two characters will come to blows at some point this season, but for now, fans will have to wait and see when (and if) that possibility comes to fruition over the course of the season's remaining episodes.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><span class="next-single">Next: <a href="https://screenrant.com/boys-season-2-starlight-double-agent-story/">The Boys: Why Starlight Is A Double Agent In Season 2</a></span></p><p>Source: <a href="https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/the-boys-season-2-erin-moriarty-starlight-defiance" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">SyFy Wire</a></p> ‘Gone Girl’: Carrie Coon Clarifies a Misconception About David Fincher https://collider.com/carrie-coon-interview-david-fincher-gone-girl/ Collider urn:uuid:2907f7f7-289e-d69e-3633-794f55357f39 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:16:23 +0000 Friday One Sheet: NOCTURNE https://screenanarchy.com/2020/09/friday-one-sheet-nocturne.html Twitch urn:uuid:5b739ad0-c2ec-b742-57c3-9830b12a4676 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:15:00 +0000 <img src="https://screenanarchy.com/assets_c/2020/09/nocturne_crop-thumb-200x200-79744.jpg" width="200" height="200" style="float: left; margin-right: 10px;"/> Yellow is the new pink.

In an announcement from DC Comics, DC Universe will be re-branding and will evolve into <strong>DC Universe Infinite</strong> next year, carrying an expanded library of comics, digital firsts, and more exclusives for subscribing DC fans. Not only that, but DC Universe Infinite will be made available worldwide to fans all over the globe.</p><p>DC Universe Infinite will launch January 21st, with worldwide access coming the summer of 2021. What will be the biggest differences between DC Universe and DC Universe Infinite? For starters, DCUI will be getting an <a href="https://screenrant.com/future-of-dc-comics-is-digital/">expanded library of over 24,000 titles at launch</a>, including digital-first comics, and exclusive content made especially for the site itself. New titles will be added 6 months after initial release, as opposed to the current schedule of one year as <a href="https://screenrant.com/dc-universe-subscription-service/">it is now with DC Universe</a>.

There has never been a better time to be a DC fan!"</p></blockquote><p>What does this mean for current DC Universe subscribers? Thankfully, current DCU members won't have to do anything, and their subscriptions will automatically update to DCUI when it launches next year, as DCUI will be the same price at $7.99 a month, or $74.99 a year. New and current annual subscribers will also get a $25 voucher to the <a href="http://shop.dcuniverse.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">DC Shop</a> with monthly members getting a $10 voucher.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DC-Universe-Infinite-Subscription-Cost.jpg"/></figure><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DC-Universe-Infinite-Comic-Service.jpg"/></figure><p>The announcement also confirms expectations that all of the DCU Original streaming series like <em>Titans, Doom Patrol,</em> the animated <em>Harley Quinn</em> series, and more will all be making the permanent transition to <a href="https://screenrant.com/dc-universe-tv-shows-hbo-max-streaming-future/">Warner Bros.' new streaming service HBO Max</a>. This will also include the classic series and films that are currently on the DCU service. However, fans will get to take part in a deal where they can add HBO Max to their subscription for an additional $4.99 (for a limited time).</p><p>All in all, this seems like a smart move on DC and Warner Bros.' part. DC Universe Infinite will see a loss in its streaming content, but it will gain worldwide access with a much larger offering of comic titles with new content coming in at a much faster rate. By making DCUI more robust with its comic offerings, it's now more on par with that of <a href="https://screenrant.com/marvel-unlimited-september-new-releases/">Marvel Unlimited</a>, the current counterpart to DC's content service. Not only that, but DC Comics seems determined to make DCUI unique, while still seeking to maintain the community <strong>DC Universe</strong> has built over the last two years, ensuring that members will get an exclusive DC experience that seems worthwhile to fans all over the world.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><span class="next-single">More: <a href="https://screenrant.com/dc-comics-animated-hbo-max/">10 Best Animated DC Shows and Movies on HBO Max (According to IMDb)</a></span></p> DC Universe Is Dropping TV Shows to Focus on Digital Comics https://collider.com/dc-universe-infinite-details-digital-comics/ Collider urn:uuid:eb852f5e-e872-6567-3647-dc2d88f77309 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 15:00:41 +0000 Good news for DC Universe fans!
