First Full Ant-Man Trailer Introduces The Villain

At first glance, it might be hard to take a hero like Ant-Man seriously. That’s why studios produce movie trailers, though. It’s also why they cast funny-men like Paul Rudd to play these unlikely protagonists.

The first extended look at the film gives us a new look at Scott Lang’s criminal history and his quest for redemption. It also shows off more about the Ant-Man suit than just its ability to manipulate size via Pym particles.

Reader Discussion: What Poorly Received Video Game Movie Deserves Another Shot With TV Series?

about X hours ago from

The Internet seems mostly pleased with Netflix's adaptation of Marvel's Daredevil, effectively erasing the 2003 Ben Affleck film from everyone's memory. Are any video game movies capable of the same reboot?

The first video game film that comes to mind is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Conceptually, it seemed like a good idea. Take Final Fantasy, a series known for (among other things) having a good story and impressive pre-rendered cinematics, and isolate those elements into an experience that lasts just under two hours. Unfortunately, it didn't come together, but maybe it could if its creators were able to explore a Final Fantasy universe over the course of a television show.

What do you think? What terrible video game movies deserve a TV show second chance?

Watch Some Gameplay From Russia-Only Free-To-Play Halo Online (While You Still Can)

Modders have managed to obtain a version of the planned-for-Russia, free-to-play Halo Online and have captured video of the game in action.

Halo Online is built using a modified Halo 3 engine, so many consider this to be as close to a PC version of Halo 3 that will ever exist. Some major differences from Halo 3 include a new setting, (the UNSC space station Anvil), sprint capabilities, and a wider collection of on-screen displays. Halo Online is also multiplayer only, so you won't find a campaign.

Microsoft has been actively pulling down videos like this showing off the game, so there is a good chance the video will disappear from YouTube.
