The Shadow King and David finally went head to head at full strength in Legion‘s Season 2 finale, and after a musical number, some crazy animation, and some flat-out brutality, David defeated the Shadow King. Unfortunately, it all came crashing down by the end of the episode, and before David knew what was happening, he was the one on trial. Season 2 flipped the script with its finale and made David the villain, and while the reasoning behind that was pretty self-explanatory, there are still plenty of burning questions we need to know before Season 3.
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger stands as the best-ever digital debut of any project in Freeform history, which is a very big deal. 716,000 starts were noted on Freeform’s digital platforms. 7.3 million views across linear and digital platforms have been calculated over the three days following the premiere. In TV playback, the jump from the Live+Same day viewership to Live+3 day viewership is a whopping 78%, bumping from 920,000 viewers to 1.64 million viewers, marking the largest Live+3 lift of any Freeform debut ever. Throw in the fact that it was the most-social scripted series on June 7 with around 112,000 engagements across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr, and it’s safe to say that Cloak and Dagger is off to a very strong start!
If you’ve never played Resident Evil 2, this looks like the perfect opportunity to dive in and see why so many other survival horror games have tried to emulate it over the years. And, if you have played the game and loved it, this looks like a great reason to dive back in and explore Raccoon City all over again. Except for the most dedicated of fans, it can be really hard to go back and enjoy these types of classic PlayStation titles. Resident Evil 2 will give you the ability to do exactly that, only with the added bonus of running on modern software with some modern mechanics bolted on for good measure. Obviously, this isn’t just a new coat of paint. As Capcom points out, it’s RE2 rebuilt from the ground up using its new RE Engine.
One of the most highly anticipated games that has consistently left absolutely everyone completely baffled and confused — and continues to leave people baffled and confused — is Kojima Productions’ PS4 console exclusive, Death Stranding. During the Sony E3 press conference, we finally got to see the actual gameplay for Death Stranding and for a lot of people it still doesn’t make any sense whatsoever, leaving people both awestruck and scratching their heads quizzically.
Fortnite for Switch was announced this morning during the Nintendo E3 Direct, going live on the eShop immediately following the presentation. Some folks who downloaded the game came across a nasty surprise, though. If you’ve got your Fortnite account linked to the PlayStation 4, you’re going to need to create a new account to play the game on the Switch. Similarly, if you play on the Switch, you won’t be able to continue your progress on the PlayStation 4. This does not appear to be an issue on the other platforms which, again, also offer cross-play with Nintendo’s version.
After initially being teased a couple of years ago, Neil Druckmann and the rest of Naughty Dog finally reveal some of the gameplay for the upcoming Last of Us Part II. The third-person, survival-action game was the premiere showcase of Sony’s E3 press conference this year, and it literally left a lot of gamers speechless after it was over. The new trailer for Last of Us Part II focuses entirely on Ellie, showcasing the heroine getting well in over her head as she encounters some rather dangerous foes.
While wardrobe malfunctions are always a risk when it comes to stage performances, we can probably safely say that this was no accident. Sethward was far from embarrassed or even apologetic when the judges and audience realized what exactly had happened. His cry of “You made me come out too early!” is a pretty good indication that the flashing was deliberate, which makes it even weirder. On the upside, we can thank Sethward’s appearance for motivating Mel B. to ask Howie Mandel what caterpillars turn into. Oh, America’s Got Talent. First you give us the dirty dancing senior citizens, and now we get Sethward. What next?
The big reveal also clocks in at nearly half an hour. That’s right, half an hour. The entire thing was published over on the Nintendo YouTube channel, where it goes through the list of changes made to nearly every major character in the game, from Mario to Peach, and from Samus to Fox. Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime, explained…
Act of Valor and Need for Speed director Scott Waugh will direct the film that was previously titled Ex-Baghdad, and is now under the working title Project X. As reported by THR, the action thriller, from writer Arash Amel, will see Jackie Chan’s character as a private security contractor called in to extract the workers from a Chinese oil refinery in the Middle East when it comes under attack. Like in Die Hard, he discovers that these terrorists are really thieves who plan to steal the oil from the refinery. To thwart the dastardly plan to steal the liquid gold, Jackie Chan’s contractor will team up with an American and former Marine played by John Cena. The wrestler and actor replaces action legend Sylvester Stallone, who was originally attached to play the character.
The original animated series ran for three seasons on MTV during the 1990s. If the live-action series gets the green light, it would not be the first time Aeon Flux has gotten the live-action treatment. In 2005, the animated series served as the source for a live-action, sci-fi action movie starring Charlize Theron in the title role. The film did not do great at the box office, and a sequel never materialized. The Walking Dead‘s Gale Anne Hurd was one of the producers on the movie.
