Ewan McGregor and Hayley Atwell are side by side in Christopher Robin, and they're also side by side in this video answering the webs burning questions about them. Surprisingly, McGregor's search doesn't mention Star Wars until the fifth line! Unfortunately, the actor didn't have any big reveals in the video, but I have to say he's looking younger these days than he did when he was doing the prequels! Check out both answering questions below:
A couple of days ago, Rockstar Games has released the first-ever gameplay footage of the upcoming game, Red Dead Redemption 2. Now, the developer revealed that the game is going to run in 4K on the PlayStation 4, confirming the assumption of most players.
The announcement was revealed via the PlayStation Blog after Sony posted the six-minute gameplay footage of Red Dead Redemption 2. The video was captioned saying, “Captured entirely from in-game footage on PlayStation 4 Pro, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay in 4K.”
Sony’s YouTube video of the gameplay trailer also showed the same caption. However, on Xbox’s YouTube channel, the caption was altered slightly saying, “Captured entirely from in-game footage, watch this introduction to Red Dead Redemption 2’s gameplay in 4K.”
The difference in the description from the YouTube channels of Sony and Microsoft would suggest that the video shown on all outlets were, in fact, the footage that was captured using the PlayStation 4 Pro running in 4K. In a statement to USgamer, Rockstar confirmed this to be true.
However, even though the gameplay footage we’ve seen was captured on the PlayStation 4 Pro, the official Xbox website confirms that the Xbox One X will also be able to run the game in 4K since the upcoming title is “Xbox One X Enhanced.”
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated to release on October 26 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
A few days ago, Nintendo released the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct that revealed new features that will be included, when the game hits the Nintendo Switch in December. However, the scene that got the most attention was during Simon Belmont’s teaser. The preview showed Luigi suffering a horrible death as his soul was sucked out of his body, which got people worried.
It seems that everything is okay after all and Nintendo released a tweet saying that, “Luigi is okay.”
Luigi is okay— Nintendo UK VS (@NintendoUKVS) August 8, 2018
Luigi’s horrific death took place in a preview from the latest Nintendo Direct. The footage showed Luigi heading to Dracula’s castle, where he came face to face with the grim reaper causing him to faint in fear. Almost immediately after the live broadcast, people began speculating on Luigi’s well-being, but the Nintendo UK VS Twitter account assured fans that Luigi is okay.
This is not the first time that a Nintendo character got killed in a Nintendo Direct. During last year’s E3 live stream, Mario was pierced through the chest by Ridley, which revealed that he was a playable character. The preview ended with Mario’s hat left behind, which at the time, people thought symbolized the end of his career. Of course, we know today that Mario is alive and well, and unlike Luigi, Nintendo did not say anything about his status after the live stream.
At least we can sleep easy knowing that Luigi is okay after all. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is scheduled to launch on December 7 this year for the Nintendo Switch.
We've seen plenty of killer fish in film, but The Meg takes everything we're used to and super sizes it. Jason Statham is already known for his highly popular second-tier action film portfolio, but this time he proves size doesn't matter as he takes on the biggest shark we've seen in any blockbuster. But is The Meg worth your time or is it giant dud.

Well, here's something that I didn't see coming! THR is reporting that Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth have walked away from Star Trek 4 after negotiations fell apart.
It's going to be really hard to make a fourth Star Trek film without them because it was supposed to revolve around their two characters! According to inside sources, "talks between the two actors and the companies making the new installment, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, have fallen apart, with both sides walking away from the table."
That's crazy! In case you're wondering what it was that they couldn't come to an agreement on, it was money. It's explained that "Pine and Hemsworth, among Hollywood’s A-list when starring in DC or Marvel movies, are said to be asking the studios to stick to existing deals. Paramount, according to insiders, contends that Trek is not like a Marvel or Star Wars movie and is trying to hold the line on a budget."
It's being said that the studio is reneging on the deals that were already in place and were forcing Pine and Hemsworth to take pay cuts to keep the costs in line with the budget.
I can see and understand what each of the parties are coming from and each one has their reason to fight for what they believe is the right thing to do. Ultimately, neither side was willing to budge or make compromises.
It's not like either of the actors needs the job. They've both been keeping very busy. You know who needs a big movie hit, though? Paramount Pictures. Star Trek is their biggest and most popular film franchises and it seems like it would be a big deal if they lost it.
There's no information on what will happen next or what the next step is for Star Trek 4. They could always recast Kirk and his father, but that just seems like a dumb idea. Who knows, maybe after some cooling off time the two sides could come back to the table and try to work something out again.
It'll be interesting to see how this unfolds over the next few months. If things don't work out, at least we've got a bunch of great Star Trek series coming to CBS All Access!
Just when you thought you've seen it all, the Netflix original comedy The Package comes along and puts a whole different spin on the term "lost package." From the minds behind Workaholics and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates comes this latest Netflix original comedy about a group of teens who try to reunite one of their friends with his lost "manhood" after a camping accident with a knife. But does this raunchy teen romp bring good laughs or more cringe?

We just learned that everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog would be voiced by Ben Schwartz. Now, we know that Adam Pally and Neal McDonough have been added to the cast. The catch is that we don’t know what their roles are. Maybe they’re Tails and Knuckles?
One interesting thing is that Pally and McDonough are both veterans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Pally was Gary the Cameraman from Iron Man 3 and McDonough was Timothy “Dum Dum” Dugan in Captain America: The First Avenger. These two actors join James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Jim Carrey, and of course Schwartz. Who do you think these two actors will be?
I'll be honest, I'm worried about this movie mostly because it will be a live-action CG mix. I wish they had just done an animated film. Let's be honest though, this will still bring in a good chunk of change.
Sonic the Hedgehog is currently slated for release November 15, 2019.
Thanks to the Wall Street Journal, we have some additional insight into what Disney might be planning after the purchase of Fox is complete. There are definitely some big changes that will be coming to Fox, but as of right now everyone at the studio is supposed to just be moving forward as if nothing is happening.
"Fox is obligated to keep acting as if it will survive, people who work at the studio say, which means making movies and developing new ideas with no certainty as to what Disney will end up doing with them."
That obviously can't be easy to do because people are going to lose their jobs in the process of this merger.
A lot of fans have been wondering if some of the changes will affect the films that Fox is currently developing. The recent reports says that Disney has plans to release any movies from the studio that are completed or in the middle of production when Disney’s acquisition is complete. That means you can expect all those Marvel films in production to be released like X-Men: Dark Pheonix and The New Mutants.
The site then goes on to say something interesting and a little disheartening. They report that the studio is going to scale back on certain film projects that don't fit Disney's family-friendly MO. The report says:
"Fox’s movie studio is expected to be significantly downsized once the deal is complete. Disney will likely take over Fox’s two biggest film franchises, Avatar and the X-Men, and scale back production of costly movies that don’t fit its family-friendly, franchise-focused formula, people close to both companies have said."
Now, it doesn't say that they are canceling all movies that aren't family-friendly, just the costly ones. In case you're worried about Deadpool and X-Force, Disney CEO Bob Iger already said that they were safe.
"It [Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool. As long as we let the audiences know what's coming, we think we can manage that fine."
They better not change their minds on that! It would totally suck if they did and the fans will riot! Up until now, there's just a been a lot of talk about what is going to happen. Once the deal is 100% then we are going to learn the true nature of what Disney is intending to do.
In the end, I just hope that they bring in great talented filmmakers to develop great film projects. I also hope that many of them are original! Fox Searchlight Pictures has played a huge role in providing audiences with edgy and original content, thankfully, there are no plans to change what they are doing. Bob Iger recently said:
"We have every intention once the acquisition is approved to maintain the business of Fox Searchlight. We think they’re in the business of making high quality films. We don’t have any plans right now to change what they do. Frankly, we think they’re doing just fine."
That's good to hear because Guillermo del Toro plans on making a lot of movies with them! Remember, they are the company that produced The Shape of Water.
What are your thoughts on this latest update in regards to what is going to happen when Disney's Fox purchase is complete?
Marvel released a short video to its YouTube Account celebrating 10 years of Marvel Studios, and it's really understated how great of an achievement that's been for them. The build could've easily crumbled and fallen apart in the last decade, but the studio has consistently brought forward some great movies that kept fans on the line all the way until Avengers: Infinity War.
It's also created a bond between all its actors, as folks like Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo talk about how great it has been to be a part of the ride.
IMAX has also announced that in celebration of the 10 year anniversary, they will host an MCU marathon where you can relive all 20 films from the MCU in IMAX!
It’s the 10th Anniversary of @MarvelStudios and we’re celebrating. For the first time ever, you can experience all 20 films from the MCU, only in IMAX. Secure your seat: https://t.co/uSgd30TFqL pic.twitter.com/lopaGKV6Qh— IMAX (@IMAX) August 10, 2018

Earlier today Gal Gadot announced that she had a role in Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet. She is taking on the role of a character named Shank and now you can see the first footage of her in action in the new promo spot below!
It's explained that Shank has a reputation as "a tough-as-nails street racer, and Vanellope finds herself up against her." It's also said that she is "the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race... yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her heart." You will get a little taste of her in the world of Slaughter Race below.
When talking about the character she plays, Gadot said:
"Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her. But as the movie goes on you realize how fun, wise and warm she really is on the inside, which is what I like most about her."
Shank seems like a great character that will make a fantastic addition to the franchise! The movie opens on November 21st and you can watch the promo below!
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a website entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”
Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters on November 21.
