Two Sonic Movie Trailers Arrive At CinemaCon; Here's What Happened In Them

about X hours ago from

Today at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, Paramount Pictures presented new trailers and details for the next big video game movie: Sonic the Hedgehog. The event was not streamed and the trailers have not been released, but Gizmodo was in attendance and has a report.

One trailer shows a police officer patrolling a town called Green Hills, when he sees a blue object speed by; the office (played by James Marsden) looks at this speed gun and sees the blue blur is traveling at 760 mph. Of course it's later revealed to be Sonic.

"Marsden's officer finds Sonic in a house and is startled by him. Later they're in a car together and Sonic explains he's here to save the world," Gizmodo reported. "Meanwhile, a large tank comes up behind them, so Sonic jumps out of the car, races at the vehicle, and smashes through it. He thinks he's won, but then another vehicle drops from the remains of the previous one."

about X hours ago from

The Xbox Game Pass catalog grows today with one of the biggest games on planet Earth. As announced during the Inside Xbox briefing in March, Microsoft's sandbox game Minecraft comes to Game Pass today. It's the full Bedrock version of the game, not some limited slice.

What's more, people who get Minecraft through Xbox Game Pass have access to all future updates, including the upcoming Village & Pillage update that arrives later this month.

Minecraft supports cross-play between Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC (via Windows 10), Gear VR, iOS, and Android. Minecraft is one of the most popular games in history. By Microsoft's latest count, it has 91 million monthly players, which is many millions more than Fortnite has.

Fortnite: Where Knife Points On Treasure Map (Week 6 Challenge Location)

Fortnite: Where Knife Points On Treasure Map (Week 6 Challenge Location)

Season 8 of Fortnite rolls on with a new set of challenges to complete across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile. Week 6's challenges run the gamut from visiting animal-shaped structures to finding the highest elevations on the island, but another one that may throw you for a loop is to search where the knife points on the Treasure Map loading screen. Fortunately, we've got you covered.

Much like the similar challenge from Week 4, all you need to do is look where the knife rests on the Treasure Map loading screen (pictured below), then head to that location to find a free Battle Star. What makes this a bit tricky is that the map isn't labeled, so if you aren't familiar with the layout of the island, it may not be entirely clear where you need to go, but the Battle Star can be found near Lonely Lodge.

Specifically, the star will appear in the middle of a forest located in-between Lonely Lodge and the racetrack north of Paradise Palms, near the top of quadrant J6. Pick it up like you would any other item, then finish the match and you'll complete the challenge. If you need more help finding it, you can watch us collect the Battle Star in the video at the top of this guide.

Fortnite: Where To Visit Wooden Rabbit, Stone Pig, And Metal Llama Location Guide (Week 6 Challenge)

Fortnite: Where To Visit Wooden Rabbit, Stone Pig, And Metal Llama Location Guide (Week 6 Challenge)

Fortnite's Week 6's challenges are now live on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile, giving players across all platforms another opportunity to earn Battle Stars and level up their Season 8 Battle Pass--and to work toward the upcoming Ruin skin. Unlike recent weeks, which had especially straightforward challenges to complete, a couple of those in Week 6 may require some assistance. This includes one that asks you to visit a wooden rabbit, stone pick, and metal llama. If you're not sure where to go, this handy guide will point you in the right direction.

As you can probably gather from the challenge's name, you'll need to find the giant, animal-shaped structures somewhere around the island to claim your Battle Stars. This can seem a bit daunting, particularly if you aren't too familiar with Fortnite's map. Fortunately, however, you don't need to visit all three within a single round, so you can simply glide from the Battle Bus to a different animal structure across three matches and complete the challenge.

The wooden rabbit can be found in quadrant A4, on a hill located between Haunted Hills and Snobby Shores. The stone pig, meanwhile, is directly east of Lucky Landing, and the metal llama is just northwest of Junk Junction. We've marked their exact locations on the map below. You can also watch the video at the top of this guide to give you a better look at where you need to go.
