If you have an iPhone/iPad/iTouch and have NOT played Infinity Blade, stop reading this and slap yourself in the face.  Hard.  Seriously, I’ll wait. Now then.  The game is currently being offered at 50% off, so you have officially run out of excuses.  It’s better than about 90% of the crap available on any mobile gaming platform, and it outshines quite a few console offerings, too.  Go get it.

After helming a blockbuster film that has raked in more than $600 million worldwide, Justin Lin is enjoying the fruits of his success.  Box office smash Fast Five has put him on Hollywood’s radar, and he has been offered several high-profile projects.  But the one that everyone is talking about is the next installment of the Terminator franchise, which will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the titular role.  Speaking to The Playlist while promoting the Fast Five DVD/Blu-ray release, Lin dropped a few tidbits: “Terminator is something I’ve been having a lot of fun with.  Just even this…

Eminem had been scheduled to make his big-screen return in Southpaw, a boxing drama from Sons of Anarchy mastermind Kurt Sutter.  The story follows a hotshot welterweight boxer whose life has dissolved around him, and who is trying to reclaim his past glory in order to support himself and his daughter.  Antoine Fuqua was attached to direct the project, and Dreamworks picked the story up late last year, but now Deadline is reporting that they will not be moving forward, relinquishing their hold on the project and allowing the filmmakers to take it elsewhere. Sutter told Deadline that the project…

Vin Diesel is preparing to don the shades once again, as Moviehole is reporting that casting has begun for David Twohy’s long-awaited third installment of the Riddick franchise.  Moviehole describes the script as “a tighter, more intimate and suspenseful ride than the previous film,” and they say that this will be more of a direct sequel to Pitch Black than its followup, The Chronicles of Riddick. In a nutshell, the movie sees Riddick back on a barren planet, surrounded by monsters and mercenaries – both species who want him dead and vice versa.  Though there’s a couple of potential cameos…

*Mild Spoiler Warning* Sitting in the theater as the lights went up and the beautifully-designed WWII propaganda end credits splashed across the screen, I was struck with a thought: It’s an amazing time to be a comic & film fan. I remember as a kid begging my mom to take me to the local hole-in-the-wall video rental stores.  I’d immediately scour their shelves for any sign of the rare VHS tapes of the existing classic superhero fanfare such as the 70’s Spider-Man TV-movie/series (Lookout criminals! He’s swinging! On a rope! Badly!), the Bill Bixby Incredible Hulk movies/series (geek tidbit: Thor…

Alright, so we all know that the Harry Potter franchise is the most successful film franchise in history, right?  And we all know that Deathly Hallows 2 is the highest-grossing film of the year, and the third-highest of all time.  I think it’s safe to say that a large contributor to the success and quality of the series can be attributed to the creative minds involved, notably Steve Kloves, who wrote the screenplays for every Potter film except Order of the Phoenix, and David Yates, who has helmed the last four installments. With the unprecedented amount of money that the…

Bethesda announced via their official blog that its next Fallout: New Vegas DLC pack, Lonesome Road, would no longer be arriving on schedule. “We just wanted to drop in here and let you know that due to circumstances beyond our control, Lonesome Road won’t be out this month. This isn’t due to any major issue with the code or content, but there are lots of factors involved in releasing these things, and one of those is causing us to slip past our intended release date.  We don’t have an exact date yet, but we’re working to get it out as…

Nintendo has a long, storied history of releasing new color configurations for their hardware and treating it with the same amount of hype as the launch of a brand new console, and it looks like the 3DS will be no different. “Nintendo 3DS is poised to be on fire for the holidays, with its new suggested retail price, great games and our new Flame Red color,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “With major upcoming releases in the Star Fox, Pokémon and Mario series, in addition to downloadable offerings from Nintendo eShop, Nintendo Video and Netflix, the system offers…

THQ announced yesterday that their long-running MX vs ATV franchise would be cancelled, according to Game Informer.  This will result in approximately 200 members of the development team being laid off, as well as the closure of two studios in Australia and the elimination of another development team in Phoenix.  THQ President and CEO Brian Farrell had this to say: “With this realignment, we are narrowing our focus to high-quality owned IP with broad appeal that can be leveraged across multiple platforms, and to work with the best talent in the industry. By right-sizing our internal development capacities for our…
