‘Deadpool’ Red Band Trailer: The Merc With The Mouth Gets Redemption

The Deadpool trailer has finally arrived. For some, it’s been too long of a wait, especially since the character was completely wasted in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But 11 years later, dedicated fans, and a certain someone who leaked the video, convinced Fox that a Deadpool that was true to the source material was worth it. “One year ago, it was some asshole who released the footage onto the internet,” said Ryan Reynolds. The actor couldn’t even believe that 20th Century Fox would let him make a R-rated superhero movie.

So, after waiting for nearly three weeks since the footage was shown at SDCC, we can finally show you the Deadpool trailer in HD. Hopefully you are wearing your brown pants. Check it out below — both the R-rated red-band version and all-ages green band version.

Gamescom 2015: Trippy ’60s Horror ‘We Happy Few’ Trailer
The Movie God   |  

We Happy Few

If you’re a fan of video games it will be very difficult for you to look at a game like We Happy Few from Compulsion Games and not want to dive in immediately, unless you’ve seen it of course, in which case you’re likely already itching to get your hands on it.

Set in 1960s England, the game tosses you into an insane world described as “a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England.” And it looks exactly like you would picture those words looking. It’s A Clockwork Orange on an intense psychedelic drug trip. It’s A Clockwork Orange‘s nightmares after said drug trip. It’s pretty wild looking.

A new trailer for the game has been released for Gamescom 2015, where it was announced that it would be coming to Xbox One. You can read more about the game and check that trailer out, along with a gameplay demo from earlier if you’ve never seen it in action, below.

‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Is Coming Soon To A Theater Near You!
Waerloga69   |  

Dungeons & Dragons logo

I don’t know whether to be excited or frightened, but there is a new Dungeons & Dragons movie coming to the silver screen in the near future. I mean, after all, each of the previous films have been lackluster to say the least. Other than that Wrath Of The Dragon God one, which was only kind of myeh.

Now the big deal here is budget, because it looks like Warner Bros. and Hasbro have decided to take this one a bit more seriously than the last ones. There is an entire army of fans out there that are more than willing to shell out some hard-earned cash to see the movie they (we) have all been dreaming about.

The Primary Instinct Header

After a year of hard work, our good friend and host of Slashfilm’s podcast The /Filmcast, David Chen, completed his work on his directorial debut, The Primary Instinct, a storytelling film starring Stephen Tobolowsky (as himself), in a compilation of Stephen’s live performances in Seattle. These stories have even been featured on Public Radio International. The film features Tobolowsky speaking to a sold-out audience and telling riveting and moving stories about life, love, and Hollywood. Along the way, he just may answer one of the questions that’s dogged humanity since the beginning of time: why do we tell stories in the first place?

After launching a successful Kickstarter campaign, and having its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, FilmBuff will now release The Primary Instinct later this fall. More on this story below.

‘Destiny’s “The Taken King” Set To Be A Real Game Changer…Literally
Bombardier Jedi   |  

Destiny Image

Bungie Studios knew they were in for the long haul when they came out with Destiny. Now they’re getting ready for the third expansion with “The Taken King” launching exactly one year from the date of the game’s initial release, and it will be quite literally a game changer.

From gameplay, weapons, and even the high-profile voices of characters, Destiny as it was even after the latest expansion in May, will be fundamentally different. Bungie has shown time and time again with this game that they are actively listening to the players and the community. With each update and expansion, they show how willing they are to add or change something based solely on players wants and needs. So in that regard, what Bungie is doing is kind of unique to the gaming industry in this day and age. For instance, one of the biggest notable changes will be the “deletion” of one of its highest profiled voice actors, Peter Dinklage.

Often, most of us look into a mirror without thinking twice. We check our hair or our outfit, and then move along with our day. But for some, mirrors often carry a darker and more menacing tone – reflecting back our insecurities. We see the best of us, followed by the worst of us. For Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) first meeting in several years, they find themselves balancing the reflection of those two exact aspects: the best and worst of them. They can’t hide from their reflections. All that’s left in the mirror is honesty.

Book Review: The Fifth House of the Heart by Ben Tripp
Empress Eve   |  

The Fifth House of the Heart by Ben Tripp header

The Fifth House of the Heart
Paperback | Kindle
By Ben Tripp
Simon & Schuster | Gallery Books
Release date: July 28, 2015

“When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you.” – Asmodeus “Sax” Saxon-Tang

Ben Tripp‘s The Fifth House of the Heart is an intelligent new twist on the old vampire myth. It’s common knowledge that vampires are blood-feasting undead repelled by garlic who, while they can be staked to death through the heart and harmed by fire, are basically otherwise immortal. But in this tale, the science behind the supernatural creatures’ existence and vulnerabilities is revealed, while new characteristics are introduced.

Asmodeus Saxon-Tang, better known as “Sax,” is a highly sophisticated, wealthy antiques dealer. The septuagenarian has traveled the globe to acquire his rare treasures, and while it’s apparent that he’s a master in his field, what’s lesser-known is how he came upon some of his rarer acquisitions — by raiding vampire lairs. Because vampires must hide their immortality from the world, it can be difficult for them to maintain ownership of their possessions century after century, leaving these heirlooms free for the taking by a person like Sax. Since vampires typically hoard their valuable possessions — items whose value increases over time — anyone who manages to kill one, would also be able to take the hoard for themselves. Though burglarizing vampire domiciles is not Sax’s specialty, he has done it enough to be set financially for life. But, the undead don’t take too kindly to these trespasses, and with nothing but time on their hands, they can be very patient and wait to take their revenge upon thieves.
