The massive CCXP (Comic-Con Experience) is happening in Brazil this weekend, and some upcoming blockbusters will be teased for South American fans in attendance. That includes the upcoming 20th Century Fox movie Free Guy. The first trailer will debut during CCXP on Saturday, but before that, a new Free Guy teaser featuring star Ryan Reynolds and co-stars Lil Rel Howery, Jodie Comer and Joe Keery has arrived. But it quickly gets highjacked and turned into a shopping network pitch for merchandise from the movie itself. Read More »
In the Star Wars universe, Emperor Palpatine proved himself to be a master of the long game. The prequels showed us that this shriveled old Sith was once as a devious and cunning strategist, someone who was content to manipulate from the shadows until the moment was right to strike and seize power in the galaxy. We’re about to see that character return (somehow) in next month’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but the recently-released video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may have just added to Palpatine’s legacy by revealing him to be even more of a long-term planner than we thought.

Years ago, Mark Wahlberg was floated as a possible lead for an Uncharted movie. Now, the Uncharted movie is finally happening, and while Wahlberg won’t be the lead, he’s going to be in the film after all. Wahlberg has joined the Uncharted movie cast as Victor “Sully” Sullivan, a mentor to main character Nathan Drake, played by Tom Holland.

It’s amazing how fast one trailer can turn our opinions around. Six months after Paramount Pictures put Sonic the Hedgehog on hold to do a last-minute redesign of its lead character, the studio has dropped a new trailer with an infinitely less terrifying version of the speedster. Gone are the tombstone teeth and the horrifyingly human traits that made the video game character look like a creepy mutant version of himself — the classic Sonic with his huge eyes and white gloves is speeding his way to the big screen. Get your first look at the way better redesign in the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer.

Specifically, animated television. Riot Games is developing a League of Legends animated series based in the LoL universe called Arcane, which will be the first scripted on-screen project from the company.

It was a dark and stormy day in New York City, the perfect day for brightly costumed superheroes to come out in droves and crowd the New York streets and subways. But there’s one superhero that stands apart from the rest. He’s a guy simply named Guy, and he’s not actually the hero of the story. An NPC (non-playable character) in a video game, Guy is a simple-minded bank teller played by Ryan Reynolds and the unwitting protagonist of the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed action-comedy Free Guy.
At 2019’s New York Comic-Con, the 20th Century Fox panel rolled out the red carpet for Reynolds and Levy, as well as the all-star cast that includes Taika Waititi, Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect). Here’s everything that /Film learned at the Free Guy New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

Back in August, we learned that Mortal Kombat 11 would be adding a couple interesting new characters to the fighting roster. The Terminator, Joker and Spawn are all being added to the video game over the next few months as downloadable content, but the first one out of the gate is the aged T-800 Terminator as portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator: Dark Fate. However, they clearly couldn’t afford to get the former Governator to do the voice himself. But we think the game developers made up for it by including a special move where the Terminator smashes a man’s genitals.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m ready to love a Star Wars video game again. And from the look of things, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order looks like it could scratch that itch quite nicely. The newest trailer for the game focuses mostly on story points and character moments, but it also shows off some very tantalizing gameplay snippets, including some action beats that make this look unlike any other Star Wars game we’ve played before.

Not long ago, the long-developing adaptation of Uncharted set up at Sony Pictures hit yet another speed bump by losing director Dan Trachtenberg. The filmmaker behind 10 Cloverfield Lane left the project in August, though no reason was given for his departure. It was the second blow for a Sony project starring Tom Holland after Sony and Marvel were having trouble negotiating a new deal to share the rights to Spider-Man and keep him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But Sony has fixed both problems.
Hot on the heels of the announcement of a new deal between Sony and Marvel for a third Spider-Man movie produced by Kevin Feige, Sony Pictures is currently in talks with Bumblebee director Travis Knight to take over the video game adaptation, and Tom Holland is still slated to star in the movie as adventurer Nathan Drake.
