The Frozen 2 Trailer Was A Massive Hit, Beats Incredibles 2 To Set New Record

about X hours ago from

Unsurprisingly, the first trailer for Disney's much-anticipated Frozen 2 was a huge hit. The trailer picked up 116.4 million viewers over its first day, which set a new 24-hour record for an animated movie.

The previous record-holder was The Incredibles 2, also from Disney, which tallied 113.6 million views. All of the numbers come from The Hollywood Reporter.

Frozen 2 has big shoes to fill. The 2013 film made more than $1 billion worldwide and it launched a new merchandising tentpole for Disney. The movie was also a critical darling, winning Oscars for best animated movie and best original song for the inescapable "Let It Go."

Apex Legends Vs. Fortnite: What's Different And What's The Same

Apex Legends Vs. Fortnite: What's Different And What's The Same


Apex Legends has stormed onto the battle royale scene in its first week, gathering some 25 million players into three-person squads, according to developer Respawn Entertainment. That's a lot of players--although not quite as many as the huge 200 million registered Fortnite players. The speed at which Apex Legends has gathered a massive community, however, has caused many to speculate that it might be the next big thing. And it seems that Epic Games has taken notice: the Fortnite developer made its Battle Pass for Season 8 free if you earn it by completing challenges. Each season's battle pass dishes out a bunch of free in-game items and normally runs about $10.

For those who aren't already dedicated Fortnite players or on the Apex Legends train, that leads to a question: which of the two should you play? Both games are free, making their money from selling in-game cosmetic items. And both use the battle royale formula, in which players compete against a huge number of competitors to be the last one standing. There are a lot of differences between Apex Legends and Fortnite, though, and knowing what they are can help make the decision of which is the game you should be playing.

Here's a complete breakdown of what Fortnite does, what Apex Legends does, and how they're similar and different, to help you decide.

Will Smith Reveals He Turned Down The Matrix, And Here's Why

Actor Will Smith was offered the role of Neo in The Matrix but he turned it down. The actor explained in a new video that the he was not sold on the Wachowskis' pitch, which supposedly involved promises of new camera technology and hard-to-grasp concepts that Smith didn't resonate with.

"There is a fine line in a pitch meeting between genius and what I experienced in the meeting," he said. Instead of doing The Matrix, Smith made Wild Wild West, and well, Smith acknowledged that he's "not proud of it." That is probably an understatement.

Smith had nothing but praise for Keanu Reeves, who played Neo, and Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus. They were both "perfect" in their career-defining roles, Smith said.

about X hours ago from

NetherRealm Studios has confirmed Jade is returning to the fight in Mortal Kombat 11. A new gameplay trailer for Jade dropped during the developer's stream on February 14. You can watch it below.

Jade's Mortal Kombat 11 trailer reveals her moveset now allows her to set up combos a little more easily in comparison to Mortal Kombat 9, and her new Crushing Blow and gruesome Fatality are proof she hasn't lost her edge. She sports a new outfit in Mortal Kombat 11, but it's still Jade's staple green. The ninja also hasn't lost her touch when it comes to delivering quips either.

Jade has been a part of the franchise since appearing as an unplayable character in the series' second entry, making her official debut in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. She last appeared in Mortal Kombat 9. Jade is a fairly fast fighter who's good at space control and pushing opponents back, able to use her staff and daggers to dish out damage from a slight distance as well.
