Quentin Tarantino Still Wants To Make A Star Trek Movie

about X hours ago from

In one of the wilder and more unexpected pieces of film news in recent years, it was reported that legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino--who is known for his original scripts and creative control over projects--was attached to a new Star Trek movie that he would direct. With the future of the Star Trek series seemingly in question, it was believed that Tarantino may no longer be involved. But now, Tarantino says it could happen--but probably not soon.

"It's a very big possibility," he told SlashFilm.

Tarantino has been busy with his next movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, so he hasn't caught up with Star Trek producers Paramount recently. However, he said the script for the new Star Trek has been written, and he expects to return to the project after he recovers from Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

Game Of Thrones: What Actually Was Jon's Plan For The Battle Of Winterfell?

Game Of Thrones: What Actually Was Jon's Plan For The Battle Of Winterfell?

When the Night King and his armies of the dead finally reached Winterfell in Game of Thrones Season 8's third episode, The Long Night, it marked the show's greatest battle. After seven seasons of preparation, the forces of the living would finally face their most fearsome enemy in one final showdown.

After watching the Battle of Winterfell, though, a lot of viewers have wondered what the hell Jon Snow and his comrades were thinking. The battle seemed like a disaster from the start, and whatever game plan the heroes had for fighting the Night King didn't make a ton of sense. A lot of people died seemingly needlessly (sorry, all the Dothraki), and their most powerful weapons, like Daenerys's dragons and the castle's huge trebuchets, weren't much of a factor.

Game Of Thrones: Chris Stapleton Appeared In Battle Of Winterfell Episode

A number of big-name musicians have appeared in cameo roles on Game of Thrones over the years, including Sigur Ros, members of Mastodon, and Ed Sheeran. Yet another famous singer-songwriter has joined the ranks: Chris Stapleton.

In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment from Sunday's episode, "The Long Night," Stapleton appears as a White Walker in the dramatic Battle of Winterfell. His bass player J.T. Cure and tour manager also appeared in the episode as White Walkers. A big fan of the show, Stapleton asked his management to reach out to the producers for a bit role, and it all worked out.

20 Years Of Super Smash Bros.

about X hours ago from

20 years ago this month, the original Super Smash Bros. launched for Nintendo 64 in North America. It hardly needs to be stated how important that game would prove to be for Nintendo's fortunes. The mascot brawler would eventually grow into one of the company's most beloved and lavish franchises, selling millions of copies and inspiring a string of imitators on other platforms in its wake. But despite all of the marquee characters attached to the game, it was also a big risk for Nintendo, a curious experiment within a genre it had little familiarity with, and its eventual success was far from assured.

By the time Super Smash Bros. arrived in 1999, Nintendo was already well-versed in spinning its mascots off into seemingly incongruous genres. The company's dungareed workhorse, Mario, had by that point starred in even more off-shoot games than he had platformers, running the gamut from puzzlers to racers, and he certainly wasn't the only one; the lovable puffball Kirby had a similar predilection for genre-hopping, appearing in his own interpretations of pinball, Breakout, and even minigolf, while the Pokemon series would go on to inspire a raft of its own off-shoot games following its explosive debut.

Days Gone Composer On The PS4 Game's Grimy Music And The Bands That Deacon Might Like

After years of development, Sony's next big exclusive, Days Gone, is finally here for PlayStation 4. We caught up with the game's composer, Nathan Whitehead, for a chat about the soundtrack to the post-apocalyptic world the Pacific Northwest. Whitehead previously composed the music for the Purge film series and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, among other things.

In our conversation, Whitehead discusses how he came to be attached to the project, the challenges (and opportunities) of working with an interactive medium like video games, the overall tone and inspiration for Days Gone's music, and the task of not repeating himself after working professionally in music for so many years. We also asked what kind of music Deacon St. John and his biker gang would probably listen to--his response is pretty great.
