about X hours ago from

Crackdown 3's release date is nearly here, but an already troubled development doesn't appear to be getting any easier for Microsoft. The publisher has confirmed to GameSpot that playing Crackdown 3 multiplayer with friends will not be possible when the game launches on February 15.

"Players will soon be able to take full advantage of the Xbox platform's Party features so they can experience the fully destructible environments in Crackdown 3 Wrecking Zone with friends," a Microsoft spokesperson stated. "We are always looking for ways to improve our fans' experience, and party functionality will be enabled with an upcoming title update along with our soon to be announced post-launch content."

Wrecking Zone is the name of Crackdown 3's multiplayer segment, which was recently available in beta for Xbox Insiders--this is when the inability to invite friends was discovered. Otherwise, we were impressed by Crackdown 3's multiplayer.

Red Sonja Movie Delayed Following Director Controversy

about X hours ago from

Despite being fired from the production of the hit Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, in September last year director Bryan Singer was announced as director of fantasy movie Red Sonja. However, following various allegations of sexual assault against Singer, it has been reported that the project has been delayed by producers Millennium Films.

According to Variety, the movie was set to start shooting in Bulgaria this year. However, a spokeswoman for Millennium confirmed that the movie is no longer on the studio's slate and plans for its production have been postponed. In addition, distribution rights are no longer for sale at the European Film Market, which is currently taking place in Berlin.

Last month, The Atlantic published a story in which Singer was accused of sexual assault on the set of his 1999 movie Apt Pupil and of sleeping with under-age boys. Singer has denied all charges against him. In addition, Singer was fired by Fox from Bohemian Rhapsody in December 2017 after repeated absences from the set. Singer is also known as the director of several X-Men movies, including the original 2000 film and 2017's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Aquaman 2 Is Happening, Brings Back Original Writer - Report

about X hours ago from

2018's Aquaman brought in more than $1.1 billion at the box office, making it one of the most commercially successful movies of the year. Success at that level pretty much guaranteed a sequel would happen, and now Warner Bros. is reportedly starting to lay the groundwork for it.

According to The Wrap, Warner Bros. has hired the first movie's co-writer, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, to come back to write the script for the sequel. However, it's unclear if James Wan, who directed the first Aquaman, will return for the follow-up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wan is in the midst of making a deal with Warner Bros. to produce the sequel, however.

With more than $1.1 billion globally at the box office, Aquaman is DC's biggest hit since The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. It was reported that Warner Bros. would make Aquaman 2 before the first movie even hit theatres, so it is no surprise at all that the film is advancing through the early stages of development.

Earn the Capitol Hill Arm Patch by completing the Invaded Mission in the Private or Open Beta

Actor Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear in an upcoming episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. According to Entertainment Weekly, Miranda will play Amy Santiago's brother, David Santiago, in the March 7 episode "The Golden Child." The episode will reportedly focus on their sibling rivalry.

Miranda was one of many celebrities who voiced their support for Brooklyn Nine-Nine following Fox's decision to cancel the show last year. NBC wasted no time in picking up the show, and the current 18-episode sixth season is airing now.

Miranda most recently starred in Disney's new Mary Poppins movie opposite Emily Blunt. He is perhaps known for creating hit Broadway shows Hamilton and In The Heights. He also co-wrote songs for the Moana soundtrack, which earned him an Academy award nomination.

Brie Larson put in some serious training to prepare for her new superhero movie Captain Marvel. Larson tweeted a video today of what she called a "training highlight" that was pushing a 5,000-pound Jeep that had a full tank of gas. She pushed it for a full minute, and don't worry, someone was behind the wheel to make sure things didn't go wrong.

You can watch the video below, which chronicles the final twenty seconds of the mighty push.
