Whether or not you’re going to see the reboot of Ghostbusters, you might be interested in seeing what it would have been like to see Ghostbusters 3 come together. Unfortunately, with Harold Ramis passed away and Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson getting up there in the years, it’s not likely to happen. But thanks to the magic of technology, one fan has given us a possible version of Ghostbusters 3.
You may remember back in 2009, a Ghostbusters video game was release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and a few more systems. It was easily the best Ghostbusters game ever made, not only because it was written by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman but because it featured the voices of all the original cast members. Now one fan has taken the cinematics and some gameplay footage from the Ghostbusters video game and edited it into a feature-length Ghostbusters 3.

Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams may not actually appear onscreen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but they’re every bit as essential to the story as Rey or Finn or Kylo Ren — arguably even more so, since they’re the architects who designed it in the first place. So why should they have to sit out Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens while Lego Rey and Lego Finn and Lego Kylo Ren have all the fun?
Well, now they don’t. Turns out Abrams and Kennedy are playable characters in the video game, which just hit shelves this week. Click through to see a video of Lego J.J. Abrams and Lego Kathleen Kennedy in action in Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Read More »

Avatar made an enormous impression when it opened in 2009, smashing box office records and earning fawning praise for its then-cutting-edge visuals and eye-popping world design. 20th Century Fox quickly announced plans to release Avatar 2 in 2014… but so far, all that’s really come of the project is story after story about release date delays. As of now, Avatar 2 is scheduled to finally open in 2018. Maybe. If they’re lucky.
So in the meantime, 20th Century Fox has found other ways to bring audiences back to Pandora, and therefore keep that sweet franchise money rolling in. We’ve talked at length about the Avatar land currently under construction at Walt Disney World, and shown you photos from the Cirque du Soleil show. But if you don’t feel like shelling out for those, you’ll soon have another, more accessible option. Avatar is getting turned into a massively multiplayer mobile strategy game from Kabam. Read More »
Terminator Genisys might never get a big-screen sequel, but Skydance isn’t ready to give up on the sci-fi action franchise. Instead, a new clan-based massively multiplayer online strategy game is being planned based on the Terminator Genisys franchise.

The world of video games based on movies has consistently been a depressing one. Most of the time the games are weak, uninspired video game versions of the movie offering nothing original or exciting as far as gameplay is concerned. Even with something as exciting as the Marvel cinematic universe, the video games for characters such as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America have been downright awful. And it doesn’t sound like Marvel Games plans on trying that again anytime soon.

Electronic Arts has a huge deal with Lucasfilm to produce a variety of video games based on Star Wars in the coming years. They kicked off their endeavor in a big way with DICE’s update of Star Wars Battlefront last fall, and there’s a follow-up coming next year (as well as even more expansions throughout this year up through December). But that was just the beginning.
At the big E3 expo for video games that kicked off this past weekend, EA unveiled a video showing off some of the new Star Wars video games they’re working on for the next few years, including a couple that we really don’t know much about at all. Plus, you can get a glimpse of the Bespin and Death Star expansion packs coming to Star Wars Battlefront, and a quick glimpse at some kind of VR X-Wing project in the works as well. Read More »
While Disney recently shut down their toy-based video game franchise Disney Infinity, it appears Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is doubling down on their efforts with a ton of new expansions packs for LEGO Dimensions. They may not have Disney properties from Marvel and Lucasfilm at their disposal, but they do have no less than 16 new film, television and video game franchises coming to LEGO Dimensions over the next year.
Ahead of next week’s E3 expo, a new LEGO Dimensions trailer shows off all of the new properties coming to the building block video game world, and they’re pretty fantastic. Some of them include Harry Potter, Mission: Impossible, Adventure Time, Gremlins and more. Get the whole list of new packs coming after the jump, and watch the new LEGO Dimensions expansions trailer below. Read More »
Yesterday, the 2016 fiscal earnings for Electronics Arts were revealed by the video game company, revealing that Star Wars Battlefront has sold 14 million copies so far. The game was one of the #4 best selling title of 2015, and it’s been selling more and more each month, largely thanks to the expansion packs adding new characters, levels and game variants. With numbers like that, it should come as no surprise that a sequel is on the way.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been confirmed by Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen during this year’s earnings call, but it won’t arrive until 2017. And it’s just one of a handful of Star Wars games intended to be released over the next few years. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

We have some bad news for anyone who has thrown down cash for Disney Infinity over the years. The House of Mouse has just announced that their Disney Infinity video game is coming to an end. After June, there will be no updates for Disney Infinity, which means you won’t be able to have any new Star Wars and Marvel battles after this summer. You’ll just have to settle for all the figures and environments that are already out there.

It’s Star Wars Day! Some of us were hoping the day would bring a Star Wars: Episode VIII teaser trailer or some kind of new sneak peek for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. But instead, we’re getting a bunch of sales on Star Wars merchandise, and promotions of new goods on the way, like the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game coming to shelves this summer.
A new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has just arrived, and I will say that one thing making this particular LEGO Star Wars installment is the involvement Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and even Harrison Ford as their respective characters from the movie. They got Harrison Ford to say the phrase “Wookiee cookies,” for crying out loud! It adds a certain level of authenticity and more fun that the previous LEGO Star Wars games were lacking. Watch below!
