Halo Debuts New 'World Of Halo' Stop-Motion Video Series, Episode 1 Available Now

While we continue to wait for a Halo Infinite release date other than the anticipated November 2021 window, the team over at 343 Industries has a different sort of Master Chief-inspired project to share. Using the Jazwares action figure line, the stop-motion series called World of Halo just debuted its first episode. You can watch it below. Spoiler alert: it's pretty awesome. The Jazwares line is surprisingly detailed for being a mere four inches tall and seeing them in action in this format is kind of cool to see as a Halo fan myself. From a fight to death with the iconic energy sword to seeing some of the most recognizable enemies in the Halo-verse, the first episode of this series has us pretty jazzed to see what's next. Especially being a massive collector.  [embedded content] Master Chief's badassery, glowing energy swords, grunts screaming in panic - what more could you want? Other than a Halo Infinite gameplay trailer, but don't worry about that. 343 Industries has recently confirmed that a new gameplay reveal is coming this Summer to show off what the team has been working on since criticism hit about its next-gen graphics.  In other Halo news, 343 recently shared off a new screenshot from the main campaign, which you can see here, detailing the various PC-specific settings for resolution. The team also confirmed that Halo Infinite will include cross-progression and crossplay between Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, so that anyone can enjoy the latest game without worried about being tied to one specific platform.  To learn more about Halo Infinite before the gameplay trailer drops in the coming months, you can scope out our dedicated game hub. From fan desires to inside looks, catch up on the latest news right here.  Thoughts on Halo Infinite and the latest stop-motion video with World of Halo?

    Amma Asante to Helm Series Adaptation of Smilla’s Sense of Snow

    Amma Asante to helm series adaptation of Smilla’s Sense of Snow After garnering rave reviews for her work on Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Mrs. America, Amma Asante has found her next television project in the form of Constantin Film’s adaptation of the Danish thriller novel Smilla’s Sense of Snow, according to Variety. RELATED: John Boyega & Gavin Hood Team for The Test Adaptation Written by Peter Höeg and published in 1992 and 1993 in English, the novel followed the titular woman, a transplanted Greenlander in Copenhagen, as she investigate the mysterious death of an immigrant Inuit child in the projects and uncovers clues that lead towards a conspiracy regarding a secretive island in her home country and a grander supernatural revelation. “I’m absolutely delighted to be helming a show with such a powerful female lead at its center,” Assante said in a statement. “Peter Höeg’s 1993 novel gave us a potent social commentary, with a heroine ahead of her time, that illuminated themes more relevant today than ever. It was a compelling alchemy for me, and a wonderful jumping-off point for our update into a modern supernatural thriller that asks poignant questions for our times.” Click here to purchase Höeg’s acclaimed novel! The series is being scripted by Clive Bradley (Trapped) and will be executive produced by Constantin Film’s executive board members Oliver Berben and Robert Kulzer with Constantin CEO Martin Moszkowicz attached to produce and Colin Scully, Alex Westmore and Brandon Zimon all overseeing the project for the German production company. “We felt compelled to revisit this groundbreaking novel 30 years later because of the extraordinary prescience of its topics and themes,” Kulzer said in a statement. “Amma has a brilliant emotional and intellectual grasp of the story and we could not be more excited to go on this journey with her.” RELATED: The Westing Game: HBO Max Adapting Mystery Novel into Series The novel was previously adapted into film in 1997 with Julia Ormond (The Walking Dead: World Beyond) and Gabriel Byrne (Hereditary) leading the cast and Billie August (A Fortunate Man) directing the mixed-received translation of Höeg’s work. Constantin Film, who previously co-produced the film, are planning to bring the project to U.S. premium cable networks and streaming platforms. (Photo Credit: David M.
