old republic star wars

Longer and further away than the events of George Lucas prequel trilogy lies the story of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, a role-playing video game from 2003 that followed an epic battle between the Jedi and the Sith.

The video game was hugely popular among Star Wars fans, garnering critical acclaim a sequel. But fans always wondered: Would the Old Republic make the leap to the big screen? Not any time soon, Rian Johnson regretfully reveals, saying that the new Star Wars trilogy that he has been tasked with will not take place during the Old Republic.

luke skywalker jedi temple

Ahch-To may have you thinking back to a certain recurring joke in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tightsbut the oddly-named planet is crucial to Star Wars lore and the plot of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker finds himself in self-exile, and where the aspiring Jedi Rey finds Luke at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But The Last Jedi won’t get into the nitty-gritty of how the former Tatooine farmboy ended up in the Ahch-To Jedi Temple — nor will the movie overshare details at all, really — so you’ll have to look to the Star Wars Battlefront II video game to gain insight into this particular journey.

The Mummy Video Game

There was a time when video game tie-ins for major blockbusters were a foregone conclusion. Sadly, after too many video game companies and movie studios phoned in poor video game adaptations of movies, they’ve gone by the wayside and are mostly a thing of the past. But now a new video game tie-in has come along that just might be better than the movie that inspired it.

One of the year’s worst movies and most disappointing blockbusters is undoubtedly The Mummy. It was a wretched start to the new Dark Universe that Universal Pictures hoped would be the launching pad for a series of films that would remake classic monster movies like The Wolfman, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man and more. Therefore, we’re surprised to see that a 16-bit video game tied to the movie called The Mummy: Demastered looks like it will be fun as hell.

Check out the trailer for The Mummy video game below. Read More »

Destiny 2 Trailer

Almost exactly three years ago, an impressive live-action commercial for Bungie’s video game Destiny debuted, directed by TRON Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski. It was an awesome sci-fi short in the guise of a video game advertisement, and it had some incredible action at the center of it. Now with the release of Destiny 2 under a week away, a new live-action commercial has debuted from another blockbuster filmmaker.

Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is behind the live-action Destiny 2 trailer that just debuted and it’s another fantastic sci-fi short that is chock full of badass action that we’d love to see on the big screen some day. Plus, it has Nathan Fillion in it, which is always good news. Watch the Destiny 2 trailer to below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »
