Spider-Man Far From Home Theories: Mysterio Isn't What He Seems And Endgame Connection

The first trailer for this year's Spider-Man: Far From Home is finally here. Although the two-minute long video is labelled as a "teaser"--and just what constitutes a trailer nowadays anyway?--it gave us a pretty good idea of what this movie was about. Of course, you can check out the full breakdown of everything that happening in it to learn more, but that's not why you're here, is it?

I have some burning questions about what's going on in this film, and the only way to satisfy the fire inside is to make up theories about where I think this movie is headed. Basically, I'm going to be talking about Mysterio a whole lot because something isn't sitting right with me. Also, this has to tie into Endgame somehow, right? At times, I use actual evidence to back up my claims, like you should in real life. Other times, I'm shouting craziness into the wind like an old man on a rocking chair hoping someone will look my way.

Regardless of what we were shown in the trailer, there is going to be more to this movie than meets the eye, and that's why I have nine theories about Far From Home, ranging from "plausible" to "what drugs are you taking," and we're kicking things off with the most plausible ones.

Spider-Man: Far From Home's release date is set for July 5.

See Glass For Free Before It Hits Movie Theaters

about X hours ago from

If you simply can't wait to see the new M. Night Shyamalan movie Glass, you're in luck! Universal Pictures is giving away tickets to early screenings around the United States on January 16.

Glass is the third part in Shyamalan's trilogy that also includes 2000's Unbreakable and 2016's Split, bringing Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) and David Dunn (Bruce Willis) face-to-face with Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) and his Horde of personalities for the writer/director's take on an epic superhero story. The tale, set largely at a psychiatric hospital housing the three men, also stars Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellie Stable, a psychiatrist who believes she can treat those that believe they have superhuman abilities.

Notably, the film also sees the return of supporting characters from both previous films, as well. Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard reprise their Unbreakable roles as David's son and Glass's mother, respectively, while Anya Taylor-Joy returns as Casey Cooke, one of the girl's kidnapped by the Horde in Split.

Free Black Ops 4 Blackout Trial Starts This Week

about X hours ago from

Treyarch has announced a free trial for Blackout, the battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The trial will be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Once you've downloaded the trial, you'll be able to participate in Blackout matches with other players. This trial does not include the full game, so you won't have access to either of Black Ops 4's Multiplayer or Zombies modes. The Blackout trial starts on January 17 and continues to January 24. If you're a fan of Call of Duty's battle royale mode, play on PC, and don't care too much about the other parts of Black Ops 4, there's a $30 version of the game that cuts out Zombies and only includes Blackout and Multiplayer.

Treyarch has also released a new update for Black Ops 4 on Xbox One and PS4. The update adds an improved looting interface in Blackout--a highly requested feature on consoles--which replaces the movable pointer. On PS4, Gauntlets and new Elixirs have been added to Zombies as well. These additions are scheduled to come to Xbox One and PC at a later date.

Battlefield 5 Update Out Now, Here Are The Patch Notes

about X hours ago from

Battlefield V's second free DLC expansion is now available. Developer DICE has rolled out the first wave of Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes content on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, bringing a new mode, weapons, and gameplay fixes to the World War II shooter, with even more content on the way over the next few weeks.

Headlining this week's additions is Squad Conquest, a new mode described as "a tighter and more intense version of Conquest." Here, 16 players divided up into two teams of eight must battle it out on smaller versions of the Arras, Rotterdam, and Hamada maps, each of which features "more tactical layouts." As DICE explains, "A core belief behind Squad Conquest is a restricted number of variables to allow strategy to be able to exist--you have to be able to predict player behavior and patterns, which is reflected in all three map layouts."

Additionally, the developer has added several new weapons to the game: the Zk-383 SMG (Medic class), Modele 1944 semi-automatic rifle (Assault class), and M1922 MMG (Support class). These can be unlocked by completing the Weekly Challenges in January and February. A new vehicle, the Tank Hunter, is also on the way as part of Chapter 2.

Halloween Blu-Ray Deleted Scene Hints At A Morbid Laurie Strode Story

about X hours ago from

When Halloween hit theaters in 2018, it reintroduced the world to one of the most beloved final girls of all time in Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). After surviving Michael Myers in the original Halloween film, the new sequel revisited the character 40 years later, after a lifetime of preparation for the eventual return of the masked killer.

The new Halloween film portrayed Laurie as a fierce warrior that was simply biding her time until Michael struck again, even if it drove a wedge between herself and her daughter. Survival was the thing that mattered to her above all else. However, in a deleted scene from the newly-released Halloween Blu-ray, fans are given an interesting and dark insight into Laurie's mind that is missing from the theatrical cut of the film.

The scene begins as an extended version of the shooting montage, which shows Laurie putting her skills with a gun to use during target practice. As she's cleaning and checking her guns after practice, though, there's a startling moment in which Laurie puts a single bullet into a revolver and holds it up to her head.

Fortnite Patch Notes For 7.20 Update: Glider Redeploy, Scoped Revolver Added

about X hours ago from

Epic Games has revealed the patch notes for Fortnite's latest update, v7.20. The patch is now live across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile, bringing back the recently teased glider redeploy mechanic, along with a new weapon and limited-time mode.

Glider redeploy was first tested in Season 6, allowing players to open their gliders again during a match and hang glide if they were at a high enough altitude. This time around, Epic has itemized the ability. Players will now be able to find new items confusingly called Gliders as loot, which add "charges" that allow them to redeploy their glider during a match a set number of times.

"The goal with the item is to provide mobility and utility, but in a form that can be balanced and iterated upon," Epic explained. "By implementing glider redeploy as an item we can iterate on multiple different levels (i.e. redeploy height, movement speed, drop chance, charge count), including inventory slot tension."
