Hitman tv series

Like many of the failed video game adaptations before it, Hitman doesn’t have a golden track record on the big screen. But perhaps a TV series adaptation of Hitman could finally hit its target.

Hulu has picked up a Hitman series adaptation, teaming up with Fox 21 and John Wick creator Derek Kolstad to adapt the best-selling video game from IO Interactive. This will be the third attempt to bring the acclaimed series to life, after 2007’s Hitman and 2015’s Hitman: Agent 27. Maybe the third time’s the charm.

Until Dawn 6

The sun has gone down. Darkness has descended. Your coven has gathered in your home. Your seasonal Pinterest treats are perfectly arranged. The pizza is approaching. It is Halloween Eve. Your ritual has been perfectly arranged…but all of the sudden, your spine begins to tingle, fear has struck you… Oh dear god! On this, the 30th day of October, you have already watched all of your favorite horror movies! Gasp!

No need to worry my sweet, for there is a much more enticing treat and it is something your whole coven can enjoy. It’s full of jump scares, plot twists, intrigue, and most importantly, fear. It will have you clutching the arm of the ghoul next to you and screaming, “OH MY GOD! I can’t believe…you just hit the wrong button!”

Yes, it’s true, I am talking about a video game, more specifically, Until Dawn. But before the non-gamers turn away, know that this is not your typical video game. Marrying a strong story with relatively simple mechanics, Until Dawn (available exclusively on the PlayStation 4) is a communal experience that combines the fun of watching horror films with the interactive quality of a haunted house. In other words, it’s perfect Halloween viewing. Er, playing. And it’s currently $7.99 on the PlayStation Store and that’s one hell of a bargain.

star wars battlefront 2 trailer

Star Wars has always been bigger than the movies, but that’s especially true in 2017. Sure, you can watch the films and the movies alone and have a great time, but keeping up with the official canon means watching TV shows and reading books and buying large stacks of comics. And now, with the impending arrival of Star Wars Battlefront 2, that means playing new video games that fill in critical gaps in the timeline.

The new Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer is all about story – there is no gameplay to be found. However, this means that this trailer may interest the non-gamers, people who are interested in the lore but don’t know their way around a video game controller. In fact, the perspective here is twisted enough to pique the interest of even the most jaded fan.
