Chaos Walking came and went without much pomp and circumstance earlier this year, mostly because theaters weren’t fully open for a proper theatrical release. But the movie is available on digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD starting today, and we’ve got an exclusive look behind the scenes with Daisy Ridley talking about the challenge director Doug Liman faced in bringing Patrick Ness‘ book to life on the big screen Read More »
For Luis Antonio, the creator of Annapurna Interactive’s intriguing new thriller Twelve Minutes, the idea for a game with a built-in time loop narrative began with a basic question. “Most games already have an aspect of repetition: you keep dying and repeating a level. But what if the character was actually aware of this? What would be the repercussions?”
Twelve Minutes is a top down point-and-click experience about a man (voiced by James McAvoy) who comes home to have a romantic evening with his wife (voiced by Daisy Ridley), only for a police detective (voiced by Willem Dafoe) to suddenly burst through the front door, accuse the wife of murder, and beat the man to death. But death is not final: instead, the man ends up right back at his own front door at the start of the evening, with only a few minutes to figure out a way to prevent this horrible situation from unfolding the same way over and over again.
I had a chance to play a preview build demo of the game and chat with Antonio about the project’s origins, evolutions, and his hopes that its inherent accessibility (all you need is a mouse) might convince non-gamers to give it a shot.

Maybe there’s a reason that the YA dystopian genre had been long left behind by Hollywood. Films like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner had their heyday in the early 2010s, but the premise of beautiful teens and twenty-somethings having to reckon with their share of authoritarian governments/world-ending threats/love triangles had run its course. But there will always be a few stragglers to a Hollywood trend, and the long-delayed Chaos Walking is one of them.

Chaos Walking, a movie that wrapped four years ago, is finally heading to theaters. Maybe. Look, we’ve been here before – the sci-fi adventure film was once supposed to arrive in 2019, so there’s always a chance it could get delayed yet again. But today, Lionsgate announced that tickets for Chaos Walking were on sale. And with that ticket announcement came a new clip from the film, which shows stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in the midst of a high-speed chase, with Holland riding a horse and Ridley on a dirt bike.

That’s made all the more complicated when Daisy Ridley shows up. Read More »
