Hideo Kojima Shows Up In Drive Director's New TV Show Trailer To Cut Off Man's Finger With Big Sword

about X hours ago from

The first trailer for Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn's new Amazon TV show Too Old To Die Young has come online, and besides looking great, it contains a surprise cameo.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima appears in the trailer at 1:54 where he can be seen swinging a massive sword. It's not exactly clear, but it looks like Kojima is using the sword to slice off a man's finger. Whether or not he has any kind of recurring role on the show is unknown, but it seems unlikely given that he's also working on his PS4 game Death Stranding currently.

Kojima and Refn are friends, and Kojima, a noted cinephile, is a big fan of the movie Drive. He even bought a replica of the scorpion jacket that Ryan Gosling wore in the movie.

Why Shazam Is DC's Most Fun Movie Yet

about X hours ago from

Shazam is DC's most fun movie yet--even more than Aquaman, which featured mer-men riding dinosaurs in large-scale underwater laser battles. That's saying something.

This kind of thing doesn't happen by accident. The tone of the early "DCEU" (or whatever we're calling it nowadays) seems to have spewed forth directly from Zack Snyder's gritty, color-desaturated brain--Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman are actually cited in the dictionary under the entry for whatever the polar opposite of "fun" is. Which isn't to say that approach is ineherently bad--many fans have enjoyed the Snyder-fied versions of these characters. But following relative hits like Wonder Woman and Aquaman, Shazam is the latest DC movie to benefit from the guidance of a director who knows how to inject a little more fun into this universe: David Sandberg.

Sandberg's previous directing credits include horror movies Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation. The Swedish director told GameSpot recently that he was excited to helm a movie with a lighter tone than what we've seen in the DC cinematic universe before.
