Child's Play Remake: First Trailer Teases Killer Doll Mayhem

about X hours ago from

It's a great--if confusing--time to be a fan of the Child's Play series. The classic killer doll franchise is now more than 30 years old, and not only is a new TV show in the works, but an unrelated movie remake also hits theaters this summer. The first trailer has now been released for that film.

The trailer doesn't give much away, and fans hoping to see or hear Chucky might be disappointed. But we do get the story set-up, which seems to hit the beats of the original 1988 movie. A young boy is given a Buddi toy, the hottest doll on the market. Unfortunately, this doll has a mind of his own and sets about causing all sorts of murderous mayhem. No word yet if the remake Chucky has been possessed by a serial killer like in the original films, but he certainly seems every bit as evil as the first version. Check the trailer out above.

Child's Play is directed by Lars Klevberg, who has also helmed the upcoming horror Polaroid. It stars Aubrey Plaza (Legion) and Brian Tyree Henry (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), plus Gabriel Bateman (Light's Out) as the kid who end up in possession of the evil doll Chucky. It's produced by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, who also produced the blockbuster 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's It The movie hits theaters on June 21.

Death Stranding Is A "Miracle," Movie Director Says

about X hours ago from

Death Stranding, the next game from Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, is already playable--and developer Kojima Productions is allowing outside people to play it. Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who is directing the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie, recently tweeted that he's had a chance to play Death Stranding. In short, he was blown away, describing the game as a "miracle."

"YOU. ARE. NOT. READY," Vogt-Roberts said of his impressions of Death Stranding thus far.

So @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN let me play DEATH STRANDING❗️The world is next-level immaculate. It’s like freebasing pure Kojima & Shinkawa. Remember when FURY ROAD blew you away but also made you (in the best-most-thankful way) ask “wtf” how does this miracle exist? YOU. ARE. NOT. READY❗️ pic.twitter.com/RkVxtZCcbj

Here's When Fortnite Season 7 Ends

about X hours ago from

Fortnite's Week 10 challenges have gone live across all platforms, which means we're coming to the end of the game's seventh season. Developer Epic Games still hasn't announced when Season 8 of Battle Royale will begin, but we do know when the current season will formally wrap up.

According to Epic's website, Season 7 of Fortnite is scheduled to end on Thursday, February 28. This doesn't necessarily mean that Season 8 will kick off immediately afterward; there have been instances in the past where a new season would begin a few days after the previous one ended. However, it does give us some idea of when we can expect Season 8 to start.

As for what awaits in the new season, that remains remains anyone's guess. Epic hasn't shared any details yet about Season 8, although some strange things have begun happening in the game. Recently, players have experienced sudden earthquakes in the middle of a match, and based on audio files gleaned from a datamine, it appears the tremors will only continue to grow in strength.

Astroneer Review - New Frontiers

Astroneer Review - New Frontiers

It's rare that you'll ever feel stressed while playing Astroneer. Its colourful planets and soothing synth soundtrack make exploring its handful of varied planets a treat for the senses, but its reined-in take on survival is what makes your hours with it as serene as possible. With little to worry about in terms of actually surviving, Astroneer shifts its focus to a core resource gathering and building loop. But, disappointingly, it struggles to entice you to visit all of the land it has to see.

Astroneer's solar system includes seven uniquely styled planets with procedurally generated terrain. They feature a familiar low-polygon styling that is made striking thanks to bold, vibrant colors and a great range of colour palettes used throughout the solar system. Your starting planet features gorgeously green fields stretching for miles on end, while another nearby feels far less inviting with harsh mustard-yellow mountain ranges and darker, more ominous clouds hanging above. The cartoonish designs that stretch from your customizable character to the structures you build blend well with the vibrant backdrops. Everything looks larger than it should realistically be, from the tires on your trusty rover to the simplistic 3D printers you make use of frequently, but it's an aesthetic that gives Astroneer a great and distinct look.
