The Witcher Season 2 Stopped Production

Netflix’s Geeked Week is almost over, but there’s a whole lot of Witcher news the streaming platform has thrown at us before we all gallop off into the weekend.

We already knew that season 2 of the show, which stars Henry Cavill as the gruff and sometimes shirtless Geralt of Rivia, is coming sometime in 2021. And while the Geeked Week presentation still didn’t reveal the official release date, we did get some footage of Ciri (Freya Allan), who had her own journey in season 1 and will likely play a larger role in season 2.

resident evil infinite darkness opening

Netflix has released the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness opening scene ahead of the CG anime series’ debut in July.

Watch the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness opening scene below.

Scott Pilgrim vs the World Expanded Soundtrack

The Scott Pilgrim vs the World soundtrack was already one of the best of its kind – a brilliant collection of songs from a brilliant movie. But this year, it’s getting a lot better with the release of the expanded edition of the soundtrack, featuring previously unreleased songs from the movie.

Earlier this week we got our first official look at Eli Roth‘s Borderlands movie, featuring Cate Blanchett as Lilith, in silhouette form. But that was just the beginning.

Check out the new Borderlands movie images below.

Super Mario Bros. Movie Extended Cut

A group of inexplicably passionate and loyal fans of the box office bomb Super Mario Bros. have released an extended cut of the film that restores 20 minutes of previously unreleased (and at one time, undiscovered) deleted scenes.

Borderlands Movie First Look

Eli Roth‘s star-studded movie adaptation of the video game series Borderlands is currently filming, and the first official images and art from the flick arrived today. We have a look at the candy-colored movie logo and a behind-the-scenes image of Cate Blanchett as Borderlands character Lilith.

werewolves within trailer

A small town is besieged by a mysterious wolf-like predator. The town take shelter indoors, in one closed space together, and they slowly get picked off from inside. It sounds like a solid premise for a horror movie, but an even better one for a video game, and Werewolves Within is actually both: it started out as an Ubisoft multiplayer VR game published in 2016 which has now inspired a horror comedy movie starring Sam Richardson. Watch the latest Werewolves Within trailer below.

uncharted wrapped

Video game movies have a spotty track record in Hollywood. In fact, there’s still chatter about a “video game movie curse,” because the vast majority of films based on a video game are critical bombs, and often box office bombs.
