In 2010, Dead Space devs Visceral Games took a bit of a break from the series and gave us a game based on Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. You know it as Dante’s Inferno. And now, it’s the latest game added to Xbox One’s backwards compatibility service, joining the likes of the original Darksiders, Deadly Premonition and of course, the entire Dead Space series.

The game followed Dante as a Templar knight from the Crusade, who is guided by the spirit of the poet Virgil. Dante must fight through the nine Circles of Hell to rescue his lover Beatrice from the clutches of Lucifer. Dante wielded Death’s Scythe, and like in God of War, could use it in a variety of combos and finishing moves. The game received praise for its depiction of Hell, but was bogged down by repetitive gameplay and being mentioned in the same breath as, well, God of War.

With the game’s cliffhanger ending, there were hints that EA was going to produce a sequel. Unfortunately, as we know now, that seems unlikely. Do yourself a favour, and give Visceral some love by tracking this one down if you haven’t already played it.

Thought you could get away from the Resident Evil 2 madness at Comic-Con? Think again! Capcom has unveiled the GameStop exclusive RE2 Remake Collector’s Edition. Retailing for $199.99, the collector’s edition at Comic-Con is the North American version, with the European version (according to Capcom’s Community Manager) being unveiled next month.

But enough talking. What’s in it!?

  • Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition – Includes the full game, special Deluxe packaging, and extra DLC Pack card
  • Leon S. Kennedy (R.P.D. Version) Figure – An expertly-crafted 12-inch figure of Leon on his first day in his new RPD police uniform, re-created to mirror his in-game design down to the smallest details. A must-have for any Resident Evil fan or collector!
  • “Ben’s File” Art Book – A 32-page book left behind by Ben Bertolucci, a freelance journalist who makes an appearance in Resident Evil 2. This file contains photos and files documenting events after the Raccoon City tragedy, and was filed away as a highly confidential document by the U.S. government. It’s never been seen by the public… until now.
  • Digital Soundtrack – A voucher code for a 25-track album featuring new songs from the remake of Resident Evil 2, as well as a selection of arrangements from the original game.
  • “R.P.D.” Renovation Design Poster – A diagram reminiscent of blueprints, this poster illustrates how the building was renovated and transformed from a museum to a police facility when work was being done on the building in 1969.

You can preorder it here for Xbox One, and here for PlayStation 4.

In addition, Capcom have also shown off a cross-promotional piece with Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, showing a new-look Claire on her Harley. You’re probably asking why Claire looks so different, whereas Leon has, apart from his facelift, looks pretty similar to his original appearance in 1998. Funny you should ask, as Capcom have released a statement about the change:

“The team had quite a bit of discussion on how to design her new look, and how much of it should retain her appearance from the original PlayStation Resident Evil 2. Ultimately, the team decided on an appearance that would line up with the iconic scene of Claire entering Raccoon City on her motorcycle. The team is extremely happy with her final design, and hope you all enjoy it as well!”


The Resident Evil 2 Remake hits PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One January 25th, 2019.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any nuttier with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies, here’s another trailer to munch on. This one is for “Blood of the Dead”, which is one of the three Zombie experiences that will be available when Black Ops 4 launches October 20th.

“Blood of the Dead” has the classic Zombies heroes — Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo and Nikolai – on a journey to a secret laboratory beneath the iconic Alcatraz Penitentiary. Encountering a familiar enemy Hell-bent on imprisoning them for all eternity, the Primis crew quickly realize that the future predicted by the Kronorium – the future they sought to secure – is now in serious jeopardy.

Along with the “Blood of the Dead” trailer, Activision also announced the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Mystery Box Edition, which is a your typical Collector’s Edition of the game, and includes the following (cue your best Brad Pitt quote from Se7en):

  • A copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Black Ops is back! Featuring gritty, grounded Multiplayer combat, the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full undead adventures at launch, and Blackout, where the universe of Black Ops comes to life in a massive battle royale experience.
  • Collectible Zombies Mystery Box – Inspired by the in-game Zombies Mystery Box, this collectible box features an eerie skeleton exterior along with frightening sounds and lighting.
  • Zombies Heroes FiGPiNS – Get the exclusive set of our new Zombies Heroes FiGPiNs featuring Scarlett Rhodes, Bruno Delacroix, Diego Necalli, and Stanton Shaw from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
  • 10th Anniversary Zombies Puzzle – This 1,000-piece puzzle features unique art celebrating 10 years of Treyarch Zombies history.
  • Dark Horse Comics Zombies Issue #1 – This first issue of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies Dark Horse Comic comes with an exclusive cover only for the Mystery Box Edition. The comic series will unveil details about our Zombies Heroes’ backstories.
  • Zombies Lithographs – These three collectible lithographs commemorate Voyage of Despair, IX, and Blood of the Dead, three Zombies Experiences in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
    .
  • Popsocket – With its intimidating skull logo, this limited-edition Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PopSocket is the perfect way to show off your Black Ops.
  • Collectible SteelBook – Limited edition SteelBook game case featuring unique art.
  • Limited Edition Specialist Icons – Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 reintroduces the fan-favorite Multiplayer Specialists, each with their own unique weapon, equipment, and icons. This set of collectible patches is inspired by each of the 10 Specialists’ in-game icons.
  • Black Ops Pass – The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Black Ops Pass includes Classified, a bonus Zombies experience, available at launch, four additional all-new Zombies experiences, 12 Multiplayer maps, and four exclusive Blackout characters.
  • Additional bonus content

Now even though I’m not a CoD fan, I can’t say that I’m not intrigued by the amount of effort Activision is putting into the promoting of the Zombies mode. Then again, it also makes you wonder about the rest of the game. Oh well.

With The First Purge now in theaters, USA Network has set their “The Purge” event series to premiere on Tuesday, September 4 at 10/9c. While we’ve already seen some footage, the full trailer has been released out of the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con and it promises to break all the rules and deliver heaps of sex and violence.

“The Purge” revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal.

Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.

Emmy and Golden Globe award-winner Anthony Hemingway directed and executive produced the premiere episode.

Last summer, Netflix ordered twenty episodes of “Disenchantment”, an adult-themed animated comedy-fantasy series from the mind of “The Simpsons” and “Futurama” creator Matt Groening. With the release set for August 17, 2018, Netflix has brought the first full trailer to the San Diego Comic-Con.

In “Disenchantment”, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.

“Ultimately,” says Matt Groening, “‘Disenchantment’ will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.”

The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) and Eric Andre (“Luci”), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery. Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (“Futurama”).

Parents Mary (Kathleen Munroe) and Paul (Chenier Hundal) aren’t getting along well, so Paul uses a death in the family as an excuse to drop their twelve-year-old son, Henry (Luca Villacis), off with a grandfather he’s never met before simply for more alone time with his wife. That the grandfather lives alone on an isolated farm without a phone during a harsh winter solidifies this setting as a perfect recipe for disaster. Sure enough, everything that could go wrong does, and Henry soon finds himself relying on his wits for survival.

Director and co-writer Michael Peterson borrows some core ideas from Home Alone. Like Kevin McCallister, Henry is initially content being left to his own devices when his parents leave him behind. Like Kevin, his parents frantically try to rush back when they realize something is wrong, but are slowed down by major obstacles like severe winter weather. Finally, Henry and Kevin both share a knack for making creative use of whatever is lying around to build traps for the ones that would mean them harm. Beyond that, the films are night and day as Knuckleball is far more bleak and bloody than its Christmastime counterpart.

The cinematography is stunning, and cinematographer Jon Thomas makes excellent use of the beautiful wintry landscape. The wide shots convey just how remote this farm is and how harsh the conditions, but it’s also breathtaking. The dull, dark neutral interiors in contrast to the bright blanket of white outdoors is symbolic and a visually pleasing aesthetic. And there is a lot of ugly within the farm. Peterson hints at a lot of dark secrets early on, particularly when mom Mary shows signs of trauma upon setting foot on the farm, and the narrative takes its time unraveling just what those secrets are. They’re so well guarded that just when you think you’ve grasped the full picture, Peterson drops a third act reveal that genuinely shocks.

Peterson has deftly mastered the art of the misdirect here. Earlier shots that linger too long on barbed wire and various items that Henry will later use in his trap building feels way too heavy-handed in its foreshadowing, lulling you into a false sense of predictability. While you can and will predict where some of the story will go, there’s a lot you won’t.

The core cast is great. Villacis plays Henry with a quiet curiosity and intelligence, but a sweet vulnerability fitting of his age. Michael Ironside is Henry’s gruff grandpa Jacob, someone who has no time for child’s play but finds common ground with Henry over a shared appreciation of baseball. Then there’s Dixon (Munro Chambers), Jacob’s sole neighbor with whom he doesn’t get along. Ironside and Chambers shared the screen before in cult hit Turbo Kid, and once again have an antagonistic relationship here. There’s almost a role reversal here, though, as Chambers’ Dixon is a far less likable character than his plucky hero in Turbo Kid.

The tensions between characters explode into violence and mortal danger. Henry’s life is on the line and the traps he sets to ward off his attacker are far more dangerous than anything Kevin McCallister came up with. Things get downright brutal, and the makeup effects are effectively gnarly.

A fast-paced, explosive thriller that steps into horror territory, Knuckleball is pretty grim, especially for its young lead. Where it loses steam, though, is with questionable character choices by Mary and Paul and the weird melodrama of the late game reveal. It steps into soap opera and away from the intended horror, and leaves the viewer with a lot of questions that remain unanswered. Even still, Knuckeball is a well-executed thriller unafraid to embrace is violent darkness or put its child lead in peril. Brutal, bloody, and full of surprises, this one is a flawed but entertaining ride.

Straight out of the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con comes the trailer for the third season of “Stan Against Evil,” premiering October 31, 2018 on IFC.

The series stars John C. McGinley as the curmudgeonly retired police sheriff Stan Miller and Janet Varney as Evie Barrett, the current sheriff of Willard’s Mill determined to wipe out the demons that plague their quaint New England Town, along with a slate of all-new guest stars this year.

Currently in production in Atlanta, GA, the third season returns with eight all-new episodes.

New guest stars coming to Stan Against Evil Season 3 include:

  • Scott Adsit (Big Hero 6, 30 Rock) as Bill, an apathetic demon-plumber who becomes intertwined with the Miller household.
  • Maria Bamford (Lady Dynamite, Arrested Development) as Nurse Pickles, a stern, no-nonsense nurse who may not be as helpful as she seems.
  • Matt Braunger (Agent Carter, Up All Night) as Dr. Barlow, an earnest, academic-type surgeon at the local hospital.
  • Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, Neighbors) as Zach, a character in a popular fictional vampire show who makes a connection with Stan’s daughter Denise.
  • Eddie Pepitone (Old School, The Muppets) as Lenny, a balding, middle-aged townie who, in a prior life, dressed up as a gorilla for local birthday parties.

Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney return to co-star as Denise Miller, Stan’s absent-minded, do-good daughter, and Deputy Leon Drinkwater, Evie’s right-hand man, respectively. David Koechner also returns to guest star as Kenny, Evie’s self-absorbed, oblivious ex-husband.

Season 3 picks up immediately after the events of the Season 2 finale, with Stan and Evie back in Willard’s Mill dealing with the consequences of Stan traveling through time to save his dead wife Claire. In doing so, he inadvertently opened a portal between the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead…allowing evil forces to truly take over the town and even some of its inhabitants. Although always the skeptic at first, Stan must work with Evie to once more save the town – even if it means making a literal deal with the devil.

Stan Against Evil is created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould, with Tom Lassally also serving as executive producer. RadicalMedia produces the series with Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes executive producing. Star John C. McGinley also serves as a producer. Stan Against Evil Seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay and Xbox. Season 1 is available to stream on Hulu and will be joined by Season 2 in August.

“[Aquaman] plays more like a science fiction fantasy film than a traditional superhero movie.” – James Wan.

It goes without saying that DC’s cinematic universe hasn’t exactly been firing on all cylinders, but with James Wan in the director’s chair for this year’s Aquaman, we’re thinking there’s a good chance the Jason Momoa-starring film will help course correct the universe a wee bit. Still though, we had been waiting on a trailer to start getting full-on excited about this one.

Out of Comic Con today, it’s here. And it’s looking like Wan isn’t letting us down.

Wan’s Aquaman looks like a beautiful underwater adventure, quite unlike anything we’ve seen from superhero cinema before. It’s also loaded with sea monsters, many of them piloted as deadly vehicles – and yes, it’s as cool as it sounds. Patrick Wilson as the film’s villain, Aquaman’s half-brother Orm, is the icing on top of what promises to be a tasty treat.

Crank up the volume and dive in!

Aquaman - Official Trailer 1 - YouTube

From Warner Bros. and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

The film also stars Amber Heard (“Justice League,” “Magic Mike XXL”) as Mera, a fierce warrior and Aquaman’s ally throughout his journey; Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Spider-Man 2”) as Vulko, council to the Atlantean throne; Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” films, “Watchmen”) as Orm/Ocean Master, the present King of Atlantis; Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” films) as Nereus, King of the Atlantean tribe Xebel; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Netflix’s “The Get Down”) as the vengeful Black Manta; and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours,” “Lion”) as Arthur’s mom, Atlanna; as well as Ludi Lin (“Power Rangers”) as Captain Murk, Atlantean Commando; and Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Green Lantern”) as Arthur’s dad, Tom Curry.

Wan directs from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (“The Conjuring 2”) and Will Beall (“Gangster Squad,” TV’s “Training Day”), story by Geoff Johns & James Wan and Will Beall, based on characters from DC, Aquaman created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger.  The film is produced by Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada serving as executive producers.

The film is set to hit theaters on December 21, 2018, in 3D and 2D and IMAX.

Legendary’s MonsterVerse kicked off in 2014 with the Gareth Edwards-directed Godzilla, continuing last year with Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island. Ahead of Adam Wingard’s fight flick Godzilla vs. Kong, arriving in May 2020, Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus director Michael Dougherty brings the big G back to the screen next year with Godzilla: King of the Monsters!

King of the Monsters will feature a host of giant monsters: not just the titular King himself, but also Mothra, Rodan, and G’s ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah (and a few surprises, Dougherty teases!). They’re all on display in the first official trailer out of San Diego Comic Con today, and it is absolutely, insanely epic in all the right ways.

Holy shit you guys, watch this at least 15 times…
