Get ready to head back… to the future. The second season of Future Man is almost here and the Hulu original series is somehow more bizarre and absurd than ever before. After seemingly saving the world at the end of Season 1, Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson), Tiger (Eliza Coupe), and Wolf (Derek Wilson) are headed forward in the timeline, only to realize something got very screwed up along the way.
To find out what, exactly, got screwed up, GameSpot and a few other outlets got the chance to speak with the cast and producers of the series at New York Comic-Con. Thankfully, they were very revealing when it came to revealing what you should expect in the new episodes. Nothing's off the table it seems, from more horrible degradation of Futturman to a musical number hidden somewhere in the new season.
If you loved the first season of Future Man, chances are you're going to enjoy what the team behind the series has come up with for Season 2. Don't expect to be jumping around in the timeline like Season 1, though. Instead, the majority of Season 2 is set in this insane new future, leaving Josh, Tiger, and Wolf completely out of their element. One of them does find it oddly comforting, though.
The new season of Future Man premieres Friday, January 11 on Hulu.
More details about Venom 2 have come to light. According to Variety's Jeff Sneider, Sony is bringing back Venom 1 writer Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey, Saving Mr. Banks) to write the screenplay for the sequel. She will also executively produce the film.
Tom Hardy is set to return as Venom/Eddie Brock, with Woody Harrelson starring as the bad guy Carnage. Michelle Williams is also set to return as Anne Weying.
BREAKING: Kelly Marcel to write and executive produce the VENOM sequel which will bring back Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson as Carnage.
It just got more expensive to visit Disneyland in California. As it regularly does, Disney recently raised ticket prices, and this time the hike comes not long before the opening of the new Star Wars area, Galaxy's Edge, this summer.
According to The Los Angeles Times, the cheapest ticket to get into Disneyland now costs more than $100, while daily parking prices are increasing from $20 to $25. In 2016, Disneyland launched a demand-based pricing scheme that offers lower prices on days that are less in demand and higher prices for popular days like weekends and holidays.
A one-day, one-park ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure for a "low-demand" day is now $104, which is up from $97. The same ticket for a regular-demand day is jumping from $117 to $129. And the daily ticket price of a high-demand day is now $149, and that's up from $135.
CES 2019 is underway, giving us a glimpse at some of the new tech products that are on the way in the coming year and beyond. HTC was the latest company to host its CES press conference, and it made a number of big announcements during the event, from revealing a new Viveport subscription model that offers unlimited access to VR games to unveiling its next VR headset, the Vive Cosmos.
If you weren't able to follow along with the press conference, we've rounded up all of the major news from HTC's CES 2019 event below so you can catch up on the company's biggest announcements.
HTC kicked off its press conference by announcing the Vive Pro Eye. Described as "an evolution in the enterprise VR space," the headset is geared more toward business than gaming and integrates eye tracking natively to give users "greater accessibility, gaze-oriented menu navigation." No release date or pricing details have been announced. [Full story]
Veteran Elder Scrolls composer Jeremy Soule is "currently not involved" with The Elder Scrolls VI. Responding to questions from fans, Soule said on Facebook that he "would never turn [his] back on [The Elder Scrolls]," but at this stage he is not lined up to do the music.
It sounds like it is still very early days for The Elder Scrolls VI, so it might be the case that Bethesda hasn't yet approached any composers to do the music for the game.
"While I've not said much about this out of courtesy to Bethesda, I would never turn my back on TES, and I believe that my involvement would hinge on a creative decision on their part and where they want to take the franchise," Soule said. "To confirm, I am currently not involved with TES VI."
Alien fans might be getting more than just a new mobile game in 2019. A new tweet from the Alien Anthology Twitter account, which represents 21st Century Fox's franchise, suggest the company means to expand on the story started in 2014's Alien: Isolation in more ways than one.
The Alien Anthology account tweeted that more news is on its way for the franchise, specifically concerning Amanda Ripley, the daughter of series protagonist Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver). That followed the announcement that Amanda would star in a new mobile game called Alien: Blackout, which is due out on Google Play and the iTunes App Store on January 24.
Dear Alien fans, there is still more to come... very soon. #ReadPlayWATCH #AmandaRipley
During CES 2019, HTC announced Viveport Infinity. Infinity is the first subscription model for Viveport that allows you to have unlimited access to the service's catalog of games.
The current Viveport subscription models are for a three-month, six-month, and 12-month plan which each allow you to play a total of 15, 30, and 60 games respectfully. For each plan, you're allowed to play five new games every month. These plans essentially create a figurative time limit to completing titles, but they also offer a way to play through a collection of Vive and Oculus VR games for a fraction of the full retail price.
HTC has not yet announced a price point for Viveport Infinity, although it may be more than the current USD 12-month subscription plan--which costs $80 USD in total. Infinity is scheduled to release on Vive Day, April 5.
HTC Vive users will be able to experience their virtual reality headset in a new way thanks to Vive Reality System, a reinvention of the headset's core software that creates a world around the user, allowing them to engage with the software in a more immersive way. Vive Reality System was announced during CES 2019 and conjures memories of PlayStation Home, a virtual world social world that Sony launched on PS3.
Like PlayStation Home, Vive Reality System is very much focused on social interactions and all that entails. This means that users will be able to connect with each other and partake in activities such as watching videos, playing games, and "other creative experiences," according to HTC.
We also wanted to rethink how users interact in VR, so we are announcing the VIVE Reality System, a re-imagination of VIVE core software to bring more custom and meaningful VR experiences to our audience. Here’s a glimpse of it in action. #HTCVIVE #HTCVIVEREALITYSYSTEM pic.twitter.com/rnS1CfWEbD
