Capcom's Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection has been out in the West for almost a couple of months now. However, the game's home country of Japan is still waiting for their special localized edition of the collection.
The Japanese version of the game will arrive on the East on October 26 this year. This particular version, which is called The Arcana Edition, will feature a few exclusive items that are not included in the Western edition of the game. The Arcana Edition will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch together with a selection of exchangeable sleeves, and a Coll set of tarot cards featuring the franchise's iconic heroes and villains.
Based on the samples we've seen so far, the tarot will feature the game's characters such as Ryu, Akuma, Rolento, C. Viper, and Rose, who is Street Fighter's own tarot-reader. You can check out some images of the tarot cards below. It's sad that the Western version of the 30th Anniversary Collection did not include the tarot cards. However, fans who are eager to get their hands on these collectibles will always have the more expensive version of importing from Japan.

Another trailer has been released for the the upcoming horror thriller Unfriended: Dark Web, which is kind of a standalone sequel to the 2014 film Unfriended. I initially rolled my eyes at this sequel but the story is does interest me as it unfolds in real time as we witness a group of friends fall deep down the dark deep rabbit hole of the dark web and are terrorized by someone on the other end. On top of that, I've been hearing great things about the movie, and there's quote in the trailer that says it's "The Most Evil Film That BlumHouse Has Ever Made," so maybe it will actually be good. I'll give it a shot.
When a 20-something finds a cache of hidden files on his new laptop, he and his friends are unwittingly thrust into the depths of the dark web. They soon discover someone has been watching their every move and will go to the unimaginable lengths to protect the dark web.
The movie was written and directed by Stephen Susco (The Grudge) and it's produced by Timur Bekmambetov and Jason Blum. The film stars Betty Gabriel, Andrew Lees, Colin Woodell, and Connor Del Rio.
Unfriended: Dark Web will be released in theaters on July 20th, 2018.
It sounds like Genndy Tartakovsky maybe isn't ready to give up on Samurai Jack. During a recent interview with CB, he says that he likes the idea of making a CG animated Samurai Jack movie. I love this franchise and it would be so cool to see Tartakovsky get to make a film. Traditional animation or CG, I don't care, he's just such a great character, and I bet that Tartakovsky could give us another great cinematic story. During the interview he said:
"Yeah. That's something I had talked about, doing a feature that's just as artistic as the TV show, but in the CG medium. And, then I started to get ideas of how to do that, how to take advantage of it... And so, it could easily be done, but I feel like, now that I've finished Jack, I probably will try to do something original."
Now, I know he says that he's finished with Jack, but you have to remember after Hotel Transylvania 2 was released he said he was done with that, and then he went ahead a made a third one after having a change of heart. He got a chance to revive Samurai Jack in 2017 with another season and I thought it turned out pretty great.
The filmmaker is currently working on a new film project, though. He just won't say what it is right now. When asked about it, he said:
"I can't share. But I'm working on something."
Tartakovsky has been looking for something new, different, and original to dive into and it will be interesting to see what it turns out to be. I've enjoyed all of his work so whatever he's doing I'm sure will turn out great. Maybe after he's done with that, he'll want to work on a Samurai Jack film.
For the first time in 16 years, Cowboy Bebop is headed back to American theaters. Funimation is planning to bring Cowboy Bebop: Knockin On Heavens Door back to theaters for a subtitled and dub showing that any fan wishing to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary doesn't want to miss.
Fans will have the opportunity to see the subtitled showing August 15, with the dubbed showing airing the next day on August 16 (via ANN). Details on locations showing the film are unknown at this time, although one would expect more information will be released next week during San Diego Comic-Con. Until then get hyped for a chance to see the godfather of all anime on the big screen, and check out this trailer for the film below:
It's crazy to think that after all these years, Mondo has never released a Ghostbusters print, but it's true! These guys have released print for every freakin' classic movie you can think of, but Ghostbusters is nowhere to be found in their archives. That all changes this month with the reveal of a Ghostbusters print created by artist Tom Whalen. Check out all the details below and tell us what you think!
The print will be available to purchase at San Diego Comic-Con this week and it will be available in two editions. First is a 36 x 24 inch, glow in the dark variant in an edition of 200 that’ll be exclusively available at Mondo’s booth (number 435) Saturday, July 21 at San Diego Comic-Con.
Second is a 36 x 24 inch regular version in an edition of 375, which will go up on Mondo’s website at the same random time the variant goes on sale July 21st at the convention.
Mondo will also be releasing a set of Ghostbusters pins that will be made available on Wednesday, July 18th. These were also design by Whalen.
Willem Dafoe is set to star in Disney’s upcoming live-action dog sled movie called Togo. It will tell the center on two of the key figures in the 1925 Nome Serum Run... sled dog Togo and sled driver Leonhard Seppala. Defoe will take on the role of Seppala, which is going to be a great role for him!
Nome, Alaska became famous in 1925 as the destination of the serum run, also known as the Great Race of Mercy, in which dog sleds played a major role in transporting diphtheria serum through harsh conditions over nearly 700 miles to save the city from an epidemic. Gunnar Kaasen and his lead sled dog Balto became known for running the final leg of the run while the 12-year-old lead dog Togo and Seppala ran the penultimate and longest leg in temperatures that were 30 degrees below zero in gale force winds.
The story is said to focus on the unlikely friendship between man and dog. "Togo was an unruly and undersized puppy but showed great leadership qualities and became the lead dog at age five. He passed away in 1929."
This has the makings of the kind of classic feel-good Disney movie that we used to see the studio produce when many of us were growing up. As a fan of Dafoe, I'm looking forward to this.
The movie is being directed by Ericson Core, whose credits include Invincible and the remake of Point Break.
Marvel is really keeping a tight lid on what we can expect from Phase 4 of the MCU. We know that there will be Spider-Man: Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but I don’t think anything else has been confirmed. Of course, most of us are expecting the lid to be blown off after Avengers 4 is released.
Even though we don’t know what movies are on their way, we do have a schedule for the movies. According to THR’s Borys Kit, one of those untitled movies has had a change in release dates. The untitled movie has had its release date change from July 30, 2021, all the way to February 12, 2021. That’s 5 months earlier! The other two movies to be released in 2021 are expected to be released May 7 and November 5.
What do you think the mystery movie could be?
MALEFICENT 2 gets a release date: May 29, 2020...and a mystery MARVEL movie that was previously dated for July 30, 2021 will now open on Feb 12, 2021.
Many Marvel stars are happy to embrace the light side of social media as crazy things are done to their characters or movies and shared with them. The latest example starts with this brief clip from Captain America: Civil War. Cap is running through the airport, gathering his team together as they’re about to confront Team Iron Man. A Twitter user overdubbed some hilarious audio from Billy on the Street that involves him saying, “Let's go, lesbians, let's go! Here we go lesbians, here we go lesbians, come on.”
I got a good chuckle out of the scene, but Evans’ response was pure gold in my opinion. If you’re wondering why Eichner was screaming about lesbians, he shared the clip the audio was taken from on Twitter to provide context for fans.
Controversial comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has a new series coming to Showtime called Who is America?. The series is set to premiere tonight and ahead of its premiere, he released a 10-minute clip in which we see him heavily transform himself as he dupes a couple of gun rights activists. One of the main things they discuss is putting guns into the hands of children to protect themselves during mass shootings.
Cohen sits down with pro-gun rights activist Philip Van Cleave in an interview where he asks, "They tried to stop 4-year-old children from having access to guns? What is the logic?" He then brings Cleave's onboard to help make a ridiculous instructional gun video for toddlers that was obviously designed to make Cleave look like an idiot.
WHO IS AMERICA? is a half-hour series from comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, in his return to series television for the first time in more than a decade in the genre he created first in Da Ali G Show. In the works over the past year, WHO IS AMERICA? explores the diverse individuals who populate our unique nation, and features Baron Cohen experimenting in the playground of 2018 America.
This has is already become a controversial series. I'm sure some people will have a good laugh at it, while others are absolutely going to loathe it because of its mean-spirited nature. Like Cohen's previous shows, this one is definitely designed to ruffle some feathers.
The seven-episode series premieres tonight on Sunday, July 15th at 10pm.
When I heard they were doing another movie about How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I rolled my eyes hard. I don’t understand why we have to keep trying and failing at making a movie about this story. The old TV special is perfect. However, this latest trailer made me start to think that this movie has some potential. Benedict Cumberbatch is voicing the Grinch and he does a really good job of giving the character some life.
I almost feel like this is what the live-action movie wanted to be, but hopefully, this does a better job. The highlight from this trailer is seeing the Grinch planning to steal Christmas, complete with red string. I don’t think this will be one of the best movies of the year, but it might be fun to show the kids.
The Grinch will be in theaters on November 9, 2018.
