Elder Scrolls Online Reveals Season Of The Dragon, New Annual Event Showcasing Elsweyr

Celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, The Elder Scrolls Online has steadily grown into an experience that many fans of Bethesda's RPG franchise wanted back when it debuted back in 2014. As an open world MMO, players can freely explore the many regions of Tamriel embarking quests, exploring dungeons, and acquiring rare loot. With the releases of previous expansions set in familiar areas, including Morrowind and Summerset, the scale and content of the online world has steadily seen improvement. During a livestream hosted by Twitch, the developers of ESO revealed the next major expansion set in the land of Elsweyr, along with an ambitious set of DLCs and updates releasing this year.

Set for launch on June 4, the Elsweyr expansion takes place in the homeland of the Khajit. Not only will new quests and events open up for veteran players in the region, but it will also be a new starting point for newcomers. As a part of their annual event for the Season of the Dragon, the developers plan to launch four unique DLCs throughout 2019. In the reveal trailer for Elsweyr, dragons have once again found their way to Tamriel, prompting the many adventurers in the land to face off against the new threat. In addition to being tied into the all new story quests, these dragons will also be a part of major world events.

A new Ghostbusters movie is coming. Entertainment Weekly reports that Jason Reitman, the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, will co-write and direct the new film that is not connected to the 2016 edition featuring an all-female cast of ghost hunters. Specific plot points for Jason Reitman's new movie are being kept under wraps for now, but he did confirm that it's set in the present day. It is not a reboot, but it's a continuation of the original series.

"This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot," he told EW. "What happened in the '80s happened in the '80s, and this is set in the present day."

The new Ghostbusters movie will start shooting later this year, and it's expected to hit theatres in summer 2020. The other writer is Gil Kenan, who earned an Oscar nomination for Monster House.

Black Ops 4 Zombies Update And Event Now Live

Treyarch has rolled out a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. As the developer previously detailed, all three of the game's modes have gotten some attention with this week's patch, but the most was saved for Zombies, which has received a new in-game event and other content.

Beginning January 15, Treyarch is holding a 115 Day Celebration in Zombies--a reference to the element used to create the undead monsters in Black Ops lore. During the event, players will receive twice the normal amount of XP, weapon XP, and Nebulium Plasma. The 115 Day Celebration is live on all platforms and is scheduled to end at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT on January 18.

Additionally, PS4 players can now take on Gauntlets in Zombies mode. Treyarch describes these as "30-round challenges with unique rules governing gameplay in each round." Players will earn medals and rewards depending on how many rounds they're able to complete, as well as a "unique reward" for their Emblem if they manage to clear round 30 without failing.

Disney's Live-Action Pinocchio Movie Reportedly Loses Director, Status In Question

about X hours ago from

Disney's new live-action Pinocchio movie has suffered what sounds like a major setback. Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey said in a new interview that director Paul King (Paddington 1 and 2), pulled out of the project over the holidays for family reasons.

McGarvey told Discussing Film that King personally chose him to be the cinematographer for the Pinocchio movie, so now that he's out, it means McGarvey is as well. He initially said the Pinocchio movie "has been canceled," but he went on to say that Disney is looking for a new director, and then production may start again. Or it might not, McGarvey said.

"I don't think it's a secret anymore, but the film has been canceled. Over the holidays, over Christmas, the director pulled out of the film for family reasons," he explained. "Disney are trying to find a new director. They're trying to get it going but I'm unlikely to be involved now because Paul King, who directed Paddington 1 and 2, wanted me to be his [director of photography] on the film.
