Destiny 2: Season 14 Iron Banner Weapons Revealed

Earlier today, we talked about the various nerfs that are being implemented in Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen ahead of season 14 on the horizon. The reason behind the wide swath of nerfs is that the studio is bringing in a ton of new weapons and gear for the upcoming season, and the team is making preemptive changes to ensure that those arrivals fit right in. While we don't know even a small portion of what's on the way, Bungie did reveal the new Season 14 Iron Banner weapons on the way to help ease the blow of the most recent nerfs. Iron Banner is slated to kick off one last time in Season of the Chosen on April 13 at 10 a.m. Pacific until April 20 at the same time. This will be the final Iron Banner before season 14, so get in there if you still need to complete the Iron Sharpens Iron Seasonal Challenge. Saladin also offers weekly bounties that are great for leveling, especially for those trying to get to 1325 for Grandmaster Nightfalls.  Regarding what's next, here's our first look at the new weapons on the way for the upcoming season:  The Hand Cannon and Sniper Rifle, seen above, will be familiar for dedicated Guardians, but there will also be brand new weapons joining as well. "Our goals moving forward are to continue bringing some Year-1 weapons up to speed with random rolls, but also bringing some new rewards into the fold when possible," said Bungie in its most recent update. "This always depends a bit on what resources we have for a given season, but we’re looking forward to a few new Iron Banner-themed tools for your arsenal." There will be new armor in Iron Banner as well, but the studio isn't ready to share that first look quite yet since it won't be ready to debut for a few more seasons.  I'm interested in seeing how the new weapons operate, given the recent meta changes. It's nice to see a blend of returning favorites and new weapons. While I like that Bungie keeps bringing back familiar items, it does get a little exhausting when returning gear takes a priority of brand-new weapons and armor. What do you think about our first look at the new weapons for Destiny 2: Season 14 Iron Banner? Sound off with your hopes and Guardian-driven dreams in the comment section below!

    A PS5 THE FINAL FOLKS Remake Is In the Works Reportedly

    The first Last of Us game has seen a remaster, but it never did get the remake treatment. The "why" is pretty obvious: the first game is stunningly beautiful and the tweaks made for it to come to PlayStation 4 made it even more attractive. That being said, a new report has surfaced that centers around Sony's "obsession with blockbusters," and it's there that we learned about the company's plans regarding The Last of Us. The report from Bloomberg is an interesting read and breaks down the pivotal shifts being made behind the scenes regarding Sony and its current goals. In the report, it was revealed that there was a small development team tasked with a Last of Us remake (not remaster) at Sony Visual Arts Services Group. That team, however, reportedly did not receive the resources needed for this project from Sony, allegedly in part due to PlayStation's Worldwide Studios Hermen Hulst, and other execs, not being totally sold on the idea. Since then, the remake's primary delegation has been transferred back to Naughty Dog, where this project is reportedly in active development. A big takeaway from this story isn't the fact that a remake is being done, but how Sony, as a company, allegedly handled this project. Sony has an impressive amount of bigger studios under its umbrella, including Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games. It appears, however, that the same level of support is reportedly not offered across the board to smaller studios as is offered to more "notable" companies. According to Bloomberg, the smaller studio was denied resources to recruit for the remake due to the subsequent approval process, and in the process has become a much smaller component to this project's completion.   It was also revealed that progress on the remake was also halted due to The Last of Us 2 when under the helm of Sony Visual Art Services Group given that several members were assigned to Naughty Dog to help with development. Once the sequel was launched and the release went global, members of Naughty Dog itself were sent over to help work on the remake. Also noted in the report is that the founder of Sony Visual Arts Services, Michael Mumbauer, has since left the company, with little insight as to why. "Mumbauer’s team saw this as their short-lived autonomy being stripped," says Bloomberg. "Dozens of Naughty Dog staff were joining the project, and some had actually worked on the original The Last of Us, giving them more weight in discussions about T1X’s [the project name for the remake] direction." It's then noted that some of the staff not attached to Naughty Dog didn't feel heard and that the shift in creative input caused several staff members to leave the company.  Mumbauer founded the group in 2007 and pulled a group of about 30 developers from other game studios for Sony Visual Arts Service Group under the Sony name. The purpose of this group was, and is, to provide support for Sony's most popular franchises. According to Bloomberg, the studio was almost condemned from the start with the site reporting that Sony allegedly failed to acknowledge the existence of SVASG. Funding, manpower, and other resources were always an issue, something that drove several staff to leave since the group's birth.  Release information isn't available at this time for the reported remake but it seems that Naughty Dog is still being assisted by the smaller group at this time. We've reached out to Sony for comment.  [Source: Bloomberg] 

    Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick & Mission: Impossible Sequels Delayed

    Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick & Mission: Impossible sequels delayedParamount Pictures has officially decided to shift the release dates for their three highly-anticipated projects starring Tom Cruise, with the long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick seeing its sixth delay from Independence Day weekend to November 19 as well as the Mission: Impossible sequels both being delayed a year.RELATED: Delaney, Parnell, Varma & More Join Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 RostersWriter/director Christopher McQuarrie’s Mission: Impossible 7, which still currently in production, is now set to open Memorial Day weekend on May 27, 2022, pitting it against fellow tentpole actioner John Wick: Chapter 4 at Lionsgate, while Mission: Impossible 8 has also been delayed from its November 4, 2022 to July 7, 2023. Filming for the project is expected to begin as soon as Cruise completes his promotional duties for Top Gun: Maverick.Directed by Kosinski from a script by Peter Craig, Justin Marks and Eric Warren Singer, Top Gun: Maverick is set in a world of drone technology and fifth-generation fighters along with exploring the end of the era of dogfighting. Maverick (once again played by Tom Cruise) is now a flight instructor, who takes Bradley Bradshaw (played by Miles Teller), the son of Maverick’s late partner Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, under his wing. The film also stars Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell and Ed Harris.A follow-up to Tony Scott’s 1986 hit has been in the works for quite some time, with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer previously outlined that the film will deal with the rise of unmanned drones and pilots becoming a thing of the past.RELATED: Top Gun: Maverick: Miles Teller Details Intense Training for Real Flight StuntsJoining Cruise and Hayley Atwell in seventh and eight installments are returning Mission: Impossible alums Rebecca Ferguson (Doctor Sleep), Simon Pegg (Ready Player One), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction), Vanessa Kirby (Hobbs & Shaw) and Henry Czerny (Ready or Not) along with newcomers Shea Whigham (Joker), Pom Klementieff (Guardians of the Galaxy 2), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Charles Parnell (Top Gun: Maverick), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), Cary Elwes (Stranger Things), Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) and Esai Morales (La Bamba, Titans) who will replace Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) for the villain role.Following the large critical and commercial success of the past two installments, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie inked a deal with the studio to return to write and direct the next two installments, with Skydance Media, who joined the franchise in the fourth installment, Ghost Protocol, will be returning to produce the next two entries.

JOE (@GIJoeOfficial) April 9, 2021Originally slated for an October 22 release, the Henry Golding-starring Snake Eyes origin story film is moving up to July 23, putting it squarely between Warner Bros’ Space Jam: A New Legacy the week prior and Disney’s Jungle Cruise the following week, as well as pitting it against Universal’s Old and Sony’s Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. Meanwhile, in addition to the shift of Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, Paramount is also delaying its only other 2021 film, Jackass, from its September 3 release to October 22 in place of Snake Eyes.Another major delay from the studio can be found in John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein’s ensemble adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons, which will be shifting from its May 27, 2022 release to March 3, 2023, with the highly-anticipated Mission: Impossible 7 taking its place.RELATED: Dwayne Johnson Announces July 2022 Black Adam Release Date!Sad news of delays aside, Paramount did bring some exciting calendar additions for the next few years, one of which includes the Kenneth Branagh-helmed untitled Bee Gees biopic, which has been set for a November 4, 2022 release date, taking the place of the recently-delayed Mission: Impossible 8.

    Josie and The Pussycats Cast Reunites for 20th Anniversary

    Josie and The Pussycats cast reunites for 20th AnniversaryUniversal’s cult early aughts classic Josie and the Pussycats, inspired by the Archie comics and Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the same name, turns 20 today and to celebrate, stars Rachael Leigh Cook (Love, Guaranteed), Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian) and Tara Reid (Sharknado) reunited virtually to look back on the film’s legacy! The cast reunion can be viewed in the player below!RELATED: Watch Rosario Dawson Transform Into Ahsoka Tano for The Mandalorian“I think it was way ahead of its time. You watch it now and it so resonates with the moment we’re in but at the time I think it was hard for people to really appreciate the satire that it was.” Rosario Dawson, who starred as Valerie, said of the film which is still often quoted to this day: DUJOUR MEANS FAMILY! The quote is even homaged by indie film fashion labels like Super Yaki, which featured hoodies and even ornaments based on it during one of their limited runs.Rachael Leigh Cook starred as Josie and was brought in by the film’s directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan, she reflected on the shoot, “As an experience, [it was] very much women supporting women from day one to this day.”Co-lead Tara Reid echoed the sentiment as they looked back, “It meant so much to us. When we made this film we had the best time ever. One of our directors was also a woman. So it’s kind of changed. And that was before there was such an influence now but in so many ways I feel like we started this game.” Click here to purchase the cult classic musical comedy!Upon release, Josie and The Pussycats was compared to Spice World, though cinephiles would later fight to reclaim it as a cult classic. The film shares more DNA with another cult film about the pop music industry: Brian De Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise, especially in how it dives into the soul-selling world of subliminal messaging to conform to capitalism over individualism. Mondo released a printing of the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack on Vinyl that you can pre-order here. Matthew Libatique, the film’s cinematographer, would later work on both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born and Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey starring Margot Robbie. Josie and the Pussycats may have been a blueprint for Birds of Prey.RELATED: Friends Unscripted Reunion Special to Tape Next Week!Both on-screen and behind the scenes the teamwork of the film really made the film shine as being about young women sticking together even as the fame machine tried to eat them up and chew them out. It was about friendship, and Rosario thinks the film transcends time because of that, “There’s scene after scene after scene that was not about how men were in our lives. It wasn’t about all these other things. It was about us and our dreams and our passions. And seeing these men being being super supportive of these women and wanting to see them shine. And watching them grow in front of you and being amazed by that. It’s just there are so many levels in it that are just really profound looking back on it through the lens of now.”[embedded content]

    WEEKLY universal Bumps Up The Forever Purge Release

    Universal bumps up The Forever Purge release a weekAfter the studio delayed The Forever Purge a whole year from July 2020 to 2021, Universal Pictures is bringing the hit horror-thriller franchise back to fans a little sooner as the studio has bumped its release up from July 9 to July 2, just in time for Independence Day weekend.RELATED: Warner Bros. Pushes Mortal Kombat Release Back a WeekThough the new release date sees the film escape the competition of Marvel’s Black Widow, it does now pit the fifth and final horror outing against the family-friendly Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway and the Chris Pratt-starring sci-fi actioner The Tomorrow War, which was recently acquired by Amazon and slated for a July 2 release.Franchise creator James DeMonaco will not be returning to the to the director’s chair for the film, which he confirmed to Entertainment Weekly in 2018 would be the finale, but will still act as screenwriter for it while Everardo Gout, award-winning director of Days of Grace, is helming.“I think it’s a great way to end it all,” DeMonaco previously told EW. “We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I’m very excited. When I came up with the idea and pitched it to everybody, they seemed psyched, and I think it will be a really cool ending, how we take this one home.”RELATED: Lionsgate Announces The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Release Date!The Forever Purge will be  produced by Jason Blum, Man In A Tree duo DeMonaco and Sébastien K. Lemercier, and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and is set to star Leven Rambin (True Detective) and be helmed by Everado Gout.The Purge series kicked off in 2013 with the first film, a smaller scale home-invasion thriller starring Ethan Hawke.

    Adverse Review: a good Michael Mann-esque Crime Drama

    Rating:7/10Cast:Thomas Ian Nicholas … Ethan (as Thomas Nicholas)Mickey Rourke … KadenPenelope Ann Miller … NicoleLou Diamond Phillips … Dr. CruzSean Astin … FrankieKelly Arjen … MiaMatt Ryan … JakeAndrew Keegan … JanWritten and directed by Brian MetcalfLow-budget thrillers carry a certain charm. Sure, the technical aspects may not be up to par with most modern-day productions; and, yeah, the acting never rises beyond B-movie standards, but such traits only add to the flavor. If anything, these films serve as interesting exercises in the art of filmmaking on a micro-budget, where creativity, strong storytelling and smart directing go a long way.So, it goes with Adverse, a very low budget crime drama that comes surprisingly close to capturing the spirit and style of the Michael Mann thrillers it clearly aspires to be. As directed by Brian Metcalf, Adverse digs deep to tell its tragic tale of revenge; and introduces a handful of fascinating characters who all get their moment to shine.RELATED: Tom Holland to Star in The Crowded Room from Akiva GoldsmanThe story follows Ethan (Thomas Nicholas), a hard-working American who has had it up to here with society. His psychiatrist, played by Lou Diamond Phillips, says he’s angry; and we see that anger plastered all over Ethan’s face as he goes about his day-to-day activities, namely taking care of his druggie sister Mia (Kelly Arjen), confronting his a-hole boss Frankie (Sean Astin) and dealing with the loud and obtrusive customers who stumble into his car during endless late night Uber-like shifts.Ethan’s predicament takes an even steeper dive when Mia and her boyfriend get wrapped up with a local drug kingpin named Kaden (Mickey Rourke) and wind up dead, forcing the angered sibling to seek out those responsible and exact bloody revenge-via-tire iron.Sounds fairly rudimentary, right? Except, Metcalf, who also wrote the film, takes the time to really flesh out his characters, so much so that, cheesy acting be damned, we actually care about what happens to all of them by film’s end.Indeed, the best scene arrives not with a wave of blood or violence, but via a quiet moment shared between Ethan and Kaden (molded after the famous coffee shop bit between Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in Heat) in which the world-weary drug dealer mournfully reflects on his past life as a kid yearning to play baseball.“This is not how I planned my life to be,” Kaden says dejectedly.Metcalf goes above and beyond the standard thriller and delivers a film that is, at its core, a study of broken characters undone by society, none of whom are right or wrong, just lost in a world they don’t understand. And while the execution of the story may leave you wanting —namely, the distracting jump cuts, bizarre line deliveries, unconvincing CGI blood and some silly plot contrivances — these central themes are strong enough to keep you invested in the story to the blood-spattered, Collateral-inspired end.RELATED: Benny Safdie Joins Are You There God? It’s Me, MargaretPerformances are mostly good. Rourke, in particular, now years removed from his Oscar-nominated turn in The Wrestler, offers up some fine work as Kaden. While Nicholas, tasked with playing a character who quite literally wears his intensity on his sleeve, delivers a convincing, if not slightly overstated performance as Ethan. The sequence in which the character unleashes his wrath with all the fury of an Old Testament god on an entire building full of drug peddlers — shot in one extended take — with nothing but a tire iron is both shocking and enthralling. You cheer for justice but mourn for Ethan’s soul.Now, this isn’t anything new. Revenge flicks are a dime a dozen. But the best of the lot, such as Death Wish and, more recently, John Wick, are able to compound meaning with madness. After all, who gives a damn about John Wick if his dog isn’t killed?Thanks to Metcalf’s steady hand, Adverse rises above the typical crop and delivers an intimate look at society’s underbelly, a place filled with murderers and scoundrels who quietly lament the broken path they chose.

    Justin Timberlake to Star in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind Series

    Justin Timberlake to star in Apple’s Confessions of a Dangerous Mind seriesComing off the critical success of Fisher Stevens’ drama film Palmer, Justin Timberlake has found his next collaboration with Apple TV+ in the form of a brand new drama series based on Chuck Barris’ 1984 memoir Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Deadline reports that Apple has successfully acquired the script at an auction and is planning to develop the project into an hour-long drama series.Timberlake has officially signed on to the role of Barris, who claimed that he was a CIA assassin moonlighting as a game show host. Should the project secure a series order, this would mark the Grammy and Emmy-winning actor’s first major scripted series after only making guest-starring appearances on Saturday Night Live.RELATED: The Mosquito Coast Trailer Starring Justin Theroux and Melissa GeorgeIn Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Chuck Barris revealed that becoming the host of The Gong Show and creator of The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game was only a cover for his real job as a CIA assassin, who was tasked to eliminate state enemies during the 1960s and the 1970s.Pick up a copy of the memoir here!The memoir was first adapted into film in 2002 also titled Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, which was George Clooney’s directorial debut (after taking over from Bryan Singer). Written by Charlie Kaufman, the film featured an all-star cast including Clooney, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore and Sam Rockwell as Barris (a role originally eyed by Michael Myers). The film scored some good notices from critics, but fell short at the box office with a worldwide take of $33.1 million on a $30 million budget.Click here to purchase a copy of the 2002 movie!RELATED: Apple Takes Greatest Beer Run Ever, Bill Murray in TalksThe series will be executive produced by David Hollander, who will also serve as the showrunner.

    Destiny 2: Season 14 Iron Banner Weapons Revealed

    Earlier today, we talked about the various nerfs that are being implemented in Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen ahead of season 14 on the horizon. The reason behind the wide swath of nerfs is that the studio is bringing in a ton of new weapons and gear for the upcoming season, and the team is making preemptive changes to ensure that those arrivals fit right in. While we don't know even a small portion of what's on the way, Bungie did reveal the new Season 14 Iron Banner weapons on the way to help ease the blow of the most recent nerfs. Iron Banner is slated to kick off one last time in Season of the Chosen on April 13 at 10 a.m. Pacific until April 20 at the same time. This will be the final Iron Banner before season 14, so get in there if you still need to complete the Iron Sharpens Iron Seasonal Challenge. Saladin also offers weekly bounties that are great for leveling, especially for those trying to get to 1325 for Grandmaster Nightfalls.  Regarding what's next, here's our first look at the new weapons on the way for the upcoming season:  The Hand Cannon and Sniper Rifle, seen above, will be familiar for dedicated Guardians, but there will also be brand new weapons joining as well. "Our goals moving forward are to continue bringing some Year-1 weapons up to speed with random rolls, but also bringing some new rewards into the fold when possible," said Bungie in its most recent update. "This always depends a bit on what resources we have for a given season, but we’re looking forward to a few new Iron Banner-themed tools for your arsenal." There will be new armor in Iron Banner as well, but the studio isn't ready to share that first look quite yet since it won't be ready to debut for a few more seasons.  I'm interested in seeing how the new weapons operate, given the recent meta changes. It's nice to see a blend of returning favorites and new weapons. While I like that Bungie keeps bringing back familiar items, it does get a little exhausting when returning gear takes a priority of brand-new weapons and armor.
