Vogt-Roberts has officially signed on to direct the studio’s first-ever live-action feature film version of Gundam for Netflix, which will be based on the universe of Sunrise’s iconic Japanese robot franchise.This marks Legendary and Netflix’s latest collaboration together, the two companies previously worked on films such as 2016’s Spectral and last year’s Enola Holmes as well as shows like Lost in Space and Pacific Rim: The Black. They are also currently working on the anime series adaptation of Skull Island and Tom Raider.RELATED: Netflix’s Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series Wraps Production!Plot details for the Netflix film are being kept under wraps but the original Gundam series is set in the Universal Century, an era in which humanity’s growing population has led people to emigrate to space colonies. Eventually, the people living in the colonies seek their autonomy and launch a war of independence against the people living on Earth. Through the tragedies and discord arising from this human conflict, not only the maturation of the main character but also the intentions of enemies and the surrounding people are sensitively depicted. The battles in the story, in which the characters pilot robots known as mobile suits, are wildly popular. The Gundam universe is replete with numerous storylines of love and conflict along with the popular Gundam battles, in which the characters operate robot suits called Mobile Suits.The live-action Gundam film will be penned by Brian K Vaughan. It will be produced by Vogt-Roberts with Vaughan set as executive producer. Legendary’s Cale Boyter will oversee the project along with the Sunrise creative team. The project was actually first announced in 2018 at the Anime Expo.RELATED: Sony & Netflix Ink First-Pay Streaming Licensing DealCreated by Hajime Yatate and Yoshiyuki Tomino, the franchise first started in 1979 with the TV series titled Mobile Suit Gundam. The massively popular Mecha anime and science fiction media franchise is Sunrise’s multi-billion-dollar property that has spawned a multi-platform universe encompassing televised anime, manga, animated films, video games, plastic models, toys, and novels among other media. Gundam continues to dominate Bandai Namco’s earnings almost forty years after its inception.

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection Season 6 Now Live


    MCC SEASON 6: RAVEN

    With Season 6, we’re celebrating the heroic exploits of Fireteam Raven with original themed armor sets, vehicle skins, weapon skins – and, we’re adding in more customization options with some brand-new in-game back accessories even, animated nameplates, and animated visors! (Not to mention, if you wanted to move around in lockstep with Fireteam Raven out of game, we have a complete Press Kit with wallpapers, screenshots, and much more right over here.)

    Below, in later today we’ve got a complete rundown of everything you can expect once you jump.

    DON’T GO CHASING WATERFALL

    If you’ve been watching our latest MCC Dev & Flighting Updates, you likely understand that we’ve been testing a whole large amount of new stuff, including a Halo Online map that’s available these days in Halo 3 . Of today as, it is possible to play Waterfall in custom games! Where are you currently first likely to dive in?

    Time for a few wetwork, Spartan.

    ESCALATION SLAYER

    Prepared to go on it up a known level? Arriving with Season 6, Escalation Slayer comes in Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo: Reach , and Halo 4 ! Putting a brand new twist on an ongoing favorite, show your combat versatility as you keep up to obtain a new weapon with each kill while racing to the ultimate round. 

    Escalation Slayer can be acquired now in-game and can rotate through our weekly playlists every once in awhile (make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to ensure you’re kept informed for the most recent playlist updates), and you will dive in right in custom games now.

    INTRODUCING: THE EXCHANGE

    The customization options in MCC span all over – from classic looks, to completely new items in each successive Season Pass, we’re always considering ways to be sure that you’ve got a method to get fresh gear, while limiting the perils of FOMO also.

    With The Exchange, through every week – and we’re likely to be rotating items from previous Seasons, we’re even likely to use this being an avenue showing off some completely new items, that aren’t in the growing season Pass. The initial Exchange-exclusive set will be the Rhine armor set (unlocked as a lot of money, available all season long), and the Rhine weapon skins (unlocked from the armor bundle separately, notably). 

    Ensure that you sign in often! We’re likely to be rotating stock through the Exchange regularly, so make sure to give it a glance whenever a chance is got by you.
