PARANORMAL ACTIVITY Virtual Reality Video Game in 2016!?
Paramount Pictures has joined with Beast Media Group to bring Paranormal Activity fans what they always never knew they wanted… the Paranormal Activity virtual reality video game. Virtual reality (VR) has had so many downs more than ups and I cannot imagine Paramount Pictures making the plunge into the gaming realm on something so shaky. I imagine a lot of money was passed around the table but I kid you not, I want this game to be great. It would be awesome that after so many years, the first best virtual reality game would be a Paranormal Activity game. The Paranormal Activity VR game is scheduled to release in 2016 for the HTC Vive, Sony’s Project Morpheus, Oculus Rift, PC, mobile, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (PS4). That is certainly a lot of systems to perfect the gamer experience for.

Eli Roth to Direct Prehistoric Shark Movie MEG
Steve Alten‘s New York Times bestseller Meg - short for Megalodon - will get a movie adaptation by Eli Roth. Can this be the next Jaws (1975)? Two men attempt to destroy the monster shark which is huge to modern day sharks, approximate max size of a Mammoth Megalodon Shark are 50-78 ft and at about 70-100 tons. I do not know how two men will have a chance with that massive of a size difference. The book has the monster shark terrorizing California but due to financing, the shark will now terrorize China… yeah. It appears Warner Bros. is trying to make huge profits like Universal Picture‘s Jurassic World (2015) did.
Showtime PENNY DREADFUL SEASON 3 Confirmed!
Showtime has revealed that they are officially renewing Penny Dreadful and there will be a Penny Dreadful Season 3. David Nevins, President of Showtime Networks Inc. made the announcement and I bet Penny Dreadful creator, writer and executive producer John Logan must have been thrilled. Main characters played by Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green will be around for at least one more year. I am doing a good job keeping up with the current Penny Dreadful Season 2 and it sure has been getting increasingly better with every new episode. Read the official Showtime press release below and do not forget to comment below.
Rob Zombie Revealed Malcolm McDowell in 31 (2016) Photo
Rob Zombie recently revealed Malcolm McDowel in his latest 31 (2016) movie and he looks very different from his past roles. He reminds me of Meatloaf in one of his previous roles/music videos. Anyways, McDowell will play Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder in the new Halloween movie 31 (2016). Rob Zombie revealed Malcolm McDowell via Facebook by saying: “Here is your first look at Malcolm McDowell from my next film 31. Malcolm plays Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder the mastermind behind the most dangerous game alive 31.”
The Joker's Fate in BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Opening Sequence - E3 2015
The opening sequence for Batman: Arkham Knight was revealed at Sony’s E3 2015 and along with that was the fate of The Joker. The cinematic shows what happens with The Joker and throws in a bit about “This.. is how it happens. This is how the Batman DIES!” Game developer Rocksteady shows some amazing visual graphics and the story seems extremely deep and riddled with twists. We get to experience a very scary Scarecrow hallucination, enjoy. Batman: Arkham Knight releases on June 23, 2015 for the PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One and PC.
The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Mini-Series Confirmed at E3 2015!
Do you think Michonne will make a great lead character in the new The Walking Dead Game, Telltale Games thinks so. It was confirmed at E3 2015 that Michonne will get her own The Walking Dead game titled The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Mini-Series. Yes, a mini-series is planned and scheduled around Michonne. This mini-series game will cover issues #126 and #139 from The Walking Dead comic book series. Find out why Michonne left her group and the events that transpired during and after. A Fall 2015 release date is expected for the Playstation 4 (PS4), Playstation 3 (PS3), XBox One, XBox 360 and PC.
Lead Actor Jack Huston Leaves THE CROW (2016)
Former lead actor of The Crow Remake, aka The Crow (2016), Jack Huston has just left the movie altogether. The new movie is about to start production in a few weeks but Huston left due to “scheduling conflicts”. Seems pretty weird that this was only now determined but maybe I am speculating too much. Director Corin Hardy seemed unfazed by the news simply stating that a new lead actor will be cast in the coming weeks… more fish in the sea I guess. It is reported that Jack O’Connell and Nicholas Hoult are possible replacements.
A&E Confirms Bates Motel Season 4 and Season 5
A&E officially confirms they have ordered Bates Motel Season 4 and Bates Motel Season 5. Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) will be returning to deliver more American Psycho fun in the future, hopefully Norma will be confirmed as the official cast. Serial killer Norman Bates played by Highmore has been really good and I am excited, I just have to catch up with the rest of Bates Motel Season 3 first. Production will start later this year and catch this, the press release even states that they “will air over two seasons, starting in 2016.” That is right, they say over TWO seasons more for Bates Motel.
Square Enix FINAL FANTASY VII HD Remake - E3 2015
Square Enix has finally revealed their Final Fantasy VII HD preview at E3 2015. This has been teased for years and they even mention that in this video. This game will release on Sony‘s Playstation 4 (PS4) first, then release to other consoles shortly after. I was shocked when I heard they will be releasing Final Fantasy VII HD for other systems too. I have been waiting for the HD release for a long time but sadly, there is no official release date for Final Fantasy VII HD yet. We will post once the release date is announced.
Microsoft Reveals DARK SOULS III - E3 2015 Trailer
Microsoft revealed the latest Dark Souls III trailer from developer From Software at E3 2015. Dark Souls III (Dark Souls 3) will be released Spring 2016 so we have a lot of time to be teased by more upcoming promos. No actual gameplay in this trailer but the cinematics are awesomely fantastic. We do see a crown, I am assuming this is the crown from the last Dark Souls II DLC, could be wrong. I love the last few seconds of this game trailer where we see a massive giant rise up and give a massive roar. Dark Souls III looks very promising and even more epic than before.
Michael Myers Confirmed in HALLOWEEN RETURNS
Dimension Films and Trancas International Films have confirmed that Michael Myers is back in Halloween Returns! Marcus Dunstan is set to direct Halloween Returns. This Halloween movie is said to be a standalone film. Malek Akkad is set to produce the new film and is actually the son of the Halloween franchise producer Moustapha Akkad. They have stated that this Halloween film will not be a remake, reboot or reimagining but a “recalibration” of the Halloween series.
Lou Diamond Phillips is Serial Killer Richard Ramirez in THE NIGHT STALKER Movie
Lou Diamond Phillips is set to star as the real life Los Angeles serial killer Richard Ramirez in the new serial killer movie The Night Stalker. The Night Stalker is currently in pre-production so news is slim but Megan Griffiths is set to direct the serial killer film. The story follows a lawyer who, "in order to save another man from execution, attempts to evoke a confession from the aging Ramirez." That sounds kind of similar, but not totally, to The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter so there can be a lot to work with considering the two life spans. The film will also include some of Richard Ramirez's real life killing spree which spans from 1984 - 1985. During this killing spree, Ramirez committed 13 counts of murder and 5 attempted murders without including the other sinister crimes. The movie plot will mostly revolve around a fictional serial killer story line. Richard Ramirez died on Death Row in 2013 of lymphoma. I know I am psyched to see this film, what about you?
Awesome Complete Nightwing Web Series Season 1!
The Nightwing Web Series is a fantastic web series that is fan made and is non-profit. How did the Nightwing Web Series come to be created? A few years ago Jeremy Le and Danny Shepard created a fan-made short film titled “Batman: Nightwing Vs. Red Hood”. The short film was a total success so they then created a Kickstarter campaign to go bigger. This also was very successful and gave them the funds they needed to go bigger and create a 5 part Nightwing Web Series. Additionally, MG Studios also provided extra resources to make it all happen. The videos are very up-there with huge Hollywood productions so definitely watch the web series and enjoy! We have all 5 episodes below but you can also go directly to the Nightwing: The Series - Episode 1 [Deathstroke] on YouTube.com
