neogaf staff stages massive walkout due to sexual harassment allegations

11 side moderators and administrators have walked out amid allegations that the owner of neogaf, tyler "evilore" malka may have sexually harassed a close friend. the site is currently inactive and malka has been silent following a woman coming forward and recounting an incident in which stepped into a shower with her naked and tried to engage in sexual activity:

in addition to that post, another post from 2012 is circling the web as well where malka himself writes about grabbing a female stranger's butt to show her he would "not be intimidated". malka has not said anything regarding the allegations and as of writing the website is still down. it's possible malka might rehire some new people to get the site back up and running again, but who knows how the gaming community will respond to the site once it is back up and running. 

for those unaware, neogaf has been a forum board notorious for game leaks and insider information since 2006. the site originated from ign's forums until the site ceased support in 2001, and the board would hop around until finding its own independent site.

not a bad lineup, although they are really overdoing it with how often they're showing films from the halloween franchise. i'm also a little disappointed some other halloween classics have been given the snub but we have the first two predator movies in there? are we reaching a point where we're better off turning to streaming for our own halloween marathons? thanks to bloody disgusting for the heads up. 






pacific rim uprising and justice league's run times have been revealed and they're shorter than expected

pacific rim uprising will run shorter than the original film, about 12 minutes shorter to be exact. collider brings us the info that the sequel to the robot vs. kaiju franchise clocks in at about 2 hours in length. director and co-writer steven d. deknight shares his reasoning on why two hours is the sweet spot in the quote below:

“it’s resting right around two hours. i always shoot for two hours. if i was doing lawrence of arabia it would be a little longer, but otherwise i think the two-hour mark—this is just for me as somebody that loves movies and watches movies, two hours is always right around the sweet spot. if it’s much less than two hours then i start to get a little suspicious, if it’s much more longer sometimes a movie will support that but sometimes you just get a little worn out.”

apparently, the folks at justice league are drinking the same kool-aid as deknight as justice league also sits at 2 hours and one minute in length according to unconfirmed reports. if true, that makes this film the shortest dc film in the modern era if digital spy is to be believed, and a sign that things will resolve rather quickly in the action-packed ensemble film. 

two action films clocking in at two hours a piece. are you happy with these times? i feel more comfortable with pacific rim uprising being shorter than i do justice league if i'm being honest, but really i can't make any judgments until the film is out.

video-breaks-down-most-of-the-major-things-coming-to-netflix-in-november-social.jpg

there's a lot coming to netflix in november, and if you're looking for the annotated version with all the highlights, check out the video below! 

that coves a bulk of what's coming in november, although there's a pretty big glaring omission in that it didn't mention the punisher. the punisher is set for november 17th, so be sure to keep a mental tally of that while you enjoy all the other stuff coming to the service in the next month! are there any titles in particular you're excited to watch?






liam neeson kicks some ass in this action-packed trailer for the commuter

liam-neeson-kicks-some-ass-in-this-action-packed-trailer-for-the-commuter1

i don't know about you, but i don't think i'll ever get tired of watching liam neeson kick ass in his action movies. we have a new trailer for you to watch today for his upcoming film the commuter and features a good amount of new footage. this latest trailer makes the film look a lot more action-packed and exciting than the first trailer did. neeson ends up putting himself into some crazy dangerous situations that will make for some entertaining and intense moments. we also get to see a lot more of neeson's pissed off look! 

the movie comes from director jaume collet-serra (orphanunknownnon-stop, and the shallows) and it looks like it's gonna be a solid action movie. here's the synopsis:

in this action-packed thriller, liam neeson plays an insurance salesman, michael, on his daily commute home, which quickly becomes anything but routine. after being contacted by a mysterious stranger, michael is forced to uncover the identity of a hidden passenger on his train before the last stop. as he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, he realizes a deadly plan is unfolding and is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy. one that carries life and death stakes, for himself and his fellow passengers.

the commuter will be released on january 12th, 2018.






photographer awesomely sneaks pennywise the clown into his sister's engagement photos

photographer and comedian jesse mclaren was asked by his sister to shoot her engagement photos. so like the loving brother that he is, he went ahead and snuck pennywise the clown from stephen king's it into the background of the photos and it's hilarious! the photos, which you can see below, offered the following note:

my sister asked me to shoot her engagement pics so i hid pennywise the clown in every photo. countdown until she notices.

i don't know how she can't notice pennywise in these shots! i'm sure she'll get a kick out of it, unless she really hates creepy-ass killer clowns!

nintendo will announce an animal crossing mobile game this week

nintendo-will-announce-an-animal-crossing-mobile-game-this-week-social.jpg

it looks like nintendo is finally ready to announce that animal crossing mobile game they've been developing for mobile. nintendo japan has announced they'll be holding a nintendo direct for the new game this wednesday (october 25th) at about 11 p.m. est. 

obviously, the most concerning part about this news is that the announcement does not appear to be a worldwide thing. that said, there have been plenty of nintendo titles teased in a japanese direct that have eventually made their way stateside, so perhaps this just means japan will be getting their hands on the game before the rest of the world. 

the hope is that nintendo is about to announce a fully functional animal crossing game similar to the main franchise titles in the series, but given the companies track record with the last few titles they've released on mobile i'm almost certain there will be a twist on that formula. as perfect as it would be just to have a regular animal crossing game on a mobile platform, i would reckon nintendo is saving that game for the switch. 

as for what fans can expect on mobile i would imagine this game will be similar to the spin-off games that have been developed for the franchise as of late. of course, i could be wrong, but i've seen enough nintendo reveals to know getting my hopes up or having expectations at this point is just a setup for disappointment. are you excited for this announcement?

stan lee gets a series of marvel movie cameo pop! figures from funko

22032_stanlee_wintersoldier_pop_glam_hires_large.png

funko is releasing a series of stan lee pop! vinyl figures. each one is based on the cameo's that he's made in the marvel movies. they've revealed the first three, which are wal mart exclusives. they include his cameos from captain america: the winter soldier, guardians of the galaxy, and captain america: the first avenger.

the figures will be released in november and i imagine we'll see more cameo figures like this follow. it'd be pretty cool if every stan lee movie cameo got its own pop! figure! that would one hell of an awesome collection!






kevin feige confirms that captain marvel will appear in avengers 4

we really don't know anything about avengers 4, but fans have assumed that one major new character will be in it, and that character is captain marvel. we've seen some proof of her involvement, but now, for the first time, marvel studios kevin feige has confirmed that the events of the captain marvel solo film will tie into avengers 4 and continue that story arc.

during an interview with indiewire, kevin feige was asked about the future of female characters in the marvel cinematic universe particularly in regards to captain marvel (brie larson) and this is what he said:

"we’re really focusing on ‘captain marvel’ and the work that anna and ryan are doing. it’s going to be a big part of heading towards this epic conclusion and epic finale of 22 movies over the course of 10 years. that is focus for the next six movies we have to finish and get out."

feige then went on to say:

“really, the focus now is on delivering ‘captain marvel’ and then bringing captain marvel’s story into the finale of everything we’ve started thus far."

i'm excited about seeing captain marvel brought to life on the big screen and i can't wait to see how the movie turns out! as of right now, all we really know about the solo film is that it's going to be set in the early 90s and feature carol danvers and nick fury somehow get caught in the middle of the skrull and kree war.

things are going to get even more interesting when we see how she ends up teaming up with the avengers in avengers 4! as of right now, all we can really do is speculate on how all that might play out. 

captain marvel will be released on march 8th, 2019, while avengers 4 is set to be released on may 3rd, 2019.






watch some guy try to sell christopher reeve's original superman costume on pawn stars

watch-some-guy-try-to-sell-christopher-reeves-original-superman-costume-on-pawn-stars-social.jpg

a clip from pawn stars season 14 has been released online that features a movie memorabilia collector trying to sell christopher reeve's original superman costume. personally, i don't know why anyone would go to try and sell something to these pawn stars guys because every time i watch the show, they pretty much undervalue everything that is brought to them. and yes, they also undervalue this awesome superman suit. luckily, the owner of the suit was smart enough to pass on the offer they made.

he originally wanted $300,000, then they had an "expert" come in and say it was worth $250,000, and then the pawn shop guys offered $200,000, which they wouldn't budge on. the guy also brought in one of the original green crystal props that was used in the fortress of solitude.

i'm a huge fan of the original superman film, so being able to see these things is pretty cool. i'm sure after this clip makes the rounds and people see the episode that it's in, the collector won't have any problems selling these props at the price that he's asking for.






the lightning strike poster for the predator gets a cool motion poster

c5hugjjueaazwin.jpg

we first saw a version of the new poster for the predator at the brand licensing expo in london earlier this month, but now 20th century fox has revealed a motion poster that makes it a whole lot cooler.

writer/director shane black wrote the script with his monster squad co-writer fred dekker. black says the film is not a full reboot of the predator series and remains in the continuity of the first two movies. he also said the film will be rated r.

the cast includes boyd holbrook (logan), olivia munn (x-men: apocalypse), keegan-michael key (key & peele), thomas jane (the punisher), alfie allen (game of thrones), sterling k. brown (this is us) and edward james olmos (battlestar galactica).

the original predator was directed by john mctiernan and starred arnold schwarzenegger as the leader of a united states special forces team that comes under attack from an alien trophy hunter. then in 1990 the direct sequel, predator 2 hit theaters before the franchise ended up crossing over with fox’s alien franchise for avp and avp: requiem. and then in 2010, nimrod antal directed and robert rodriguez produced a reboot with a new feature, predators.

the predator will be released in theaters on august 3, 2018.






star trek: discovery has been renewed for season 2

i haven't watched star trek: discovery yet because i don't want to pay for the cbs all access streaming service. i've heard great things about the series, though, and apparently, enough people have subscribed to cbs all access to watch the new star trek series that it's officially been renewed for season 2. so, if you've been hoping that the series would get picked up for a second season, it's coming!

there's a video announcement below for you to watch along with this statement from marc debevoise, president and chief operating officer, cbs interactive: 

"in just six episodes, star trek: discovery has driven subscriber growth, critical acclaim and huge global fan interest for the first premium version of this great franchise. this series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the ‘star trek’ legacy. we are extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series.”

the press release points out that the launch of star trek: discovery broke a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month for the cbs all access service.

the first six episodes of star trek: discovery are currently available to stream on cbs all access. all new episodes are available on demand weekly after 8:30 pm, et on sundays exclusively for cbs all access subscribers in the u.s. as previously announced, star trek: discovery  will air in two chapters. the final episode of chapter one will debut on sunday, november 12, and the second chapter, featuring the remaining six episodes, will return in january 2018.
star trek: discovery follows the voyages of starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. the series will feature a new ship and new characters, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

the series stars sonequa martin-green, doug jones, jason isaacs, anthony rapp, michelle yeoh, shazad latif, mary wiseman, mary chieffo, james frain.

i'll eventually start watching the show when i don't have to sign up for cbs all-access to watch it.






man builds a massive two-story at-at in front of his house for halloween

at-at-halloween-1.jpg

if there is any house handing out king-sized candy bars on this ohio street it is most likely the home of nick myer. myer built this massive imperial walker in his front yard for halloween. 

the giant at-at walker has gained some pretty intense foot traffic in parma, ohio. star wars fans have flocked to the front yard to get their photo taken with the two-story transport, some even getting into character, dressing as stormtroopers. this is something you might think would cause a bit of drama in the neighbor or with the home owners association, but miraculously, nick myer's wife and neighbors fully approve of the at-at walker and don't seem to mind all of the attention that the halloween display is gaining.

there are several more shots of the at-at below, with all the work myer put into building the thing, the real question is will he really take it down after halloween? afterall, fewer things look better in snow than an at-at.

someone is making a vr version of pubg to really bring us into the future

if you've ever wanted to enter a virtual arena akin to player unknown battleground, your luck is in. oneiric entertainment have announced that they have started on a game called virtual battleground, which will be a battle royale in vr. the developers have treated us to a short gameplay video, which you can see here:

it will featured squad teams and free-for-alls, but don't expect a massive rollout of giant teams. vr headsets have a small player base for now, so limits are set at 16 players per game. the developers are offering alpha testing right now, so be sure to visit their site if you want to sign up. 

this reminds me so much of the movie, 'the gamer'. this will surely be one intense experience, but since i am still waiting to get a psvr just to try resident evil 7 out on it, it will probably be a long while before i get to fight in a virtual arena such as this. however, i may visit my local gaming centre to see how the expected tournaments unfold.

the expected released date is 2018 for the htc vive and oculus rift. let us know what you think about this new virtual arena, and if you are sign up for the alpha. we'd love some feedback on your experience.

renee zellweger has been cast as judy garland in the film judy

renee-zellweger-has-been-cast-as-judy-garland-in-the-film-judy-social.jpg

remember when renee zellweger used to be one of the most sought-after actresses in hollywood? she was going strong for a while there, then all of a sudden we stopped seeing her in movies. when she eventually resurfaced she didn't look like renee zellweger! 

well, the actress just landed a big movie role! she will play judy garland in a new movie called judy, which will revolve around the legend’s final concerts in london. here's a description that was released by variety:

renee-zellweger-has-been-cast-as-judy-garland-in-the-film-judy22
opening in the english capital in the winter of 1968 as garland arrives for a five-week run of sell-out concerts, the movie will also recount the icon’s battles with management, and relationships with musicians and fans.
as the concerts get underway the star of stage and screen is 47 and exhausted, fragile, and wanting to be at home with her kids, casting into doubt whether the shows, at the talk of the town nightclub, can go on.

i'm not sure if you're familiar with the later life of judy garland, but it was incredibly tragic and sad. it sounds like some of that stuff she went through will be explored in this film.

it seems like this will be zellweger's biggest most high-profile role in a long time and it will be interesting to see how she does. it's definitely a great project for her!

the script for judy comes from tom edge (the crown) and it will be directed by british stage director and tony nominee, rupert goold, will direct. the film will start shooting next february in london and it will also include some of garland’s best-known songs.

we've got less than a month to go before justice league hits theaters! while we wait, here's a cool fan-made trailer created by sebastian hughes for you to enjoy. he calls it the "ultimate" trailer and he compiled all the footage that has been released for the movie so far into one trailer. the trailer clocks in at over 5-minutes long and i think you'll like how it turned out. check it out and tell us what you think!

justice league stars ben affleck as batman, henry cavill as superman, gal gadot as wonder woman, jason momoa as aquaman, ezra miller as the flash, and ray fisher as cyborg as the main team. the cast also includes willem dafoe as nuidis vulko, jesse eisenberg as lex luthor, jeremy irons as alfred pennyworth, diane lane as martha kent, connie nielsen as queen hippolyta, billy crudup as henry allen, amber heard as mera, with j.k. simmons as commissioner gordon, and amy adams as lois lane.

justice league opens in theaters on november 17. 






this sesame street parody of the walking dead is a cookie massacre!

this-sesame-street-parody-of-the-walking-dead-is-a-cookie-massacre-social.jpg

sesame street has had a lot of fun over the years with their movie and tv parodies. in one of their more recent episodes, they featured a parody of the walking dead and it's an absolute cookie massacre!

the parody is called the walking gingerbread and it centers on a horde of gingerbread men known at crumbies. they are on the loose and terrorizing poor cookie monster by eating all of his cookies! cookie monster is helped by muppet versions of daryl and michonne and together they try to escape the crumbies by getting to "the cookie safe-zone", which is, of course, run by the governor. 

the crumbies come from a bad batch of cookies and are eating everyone's cookies! the cookies are only safe if they aren't opened. will sheriff graham learn to control his hunger for everyone's safety? will the boxes of cookies ever be safe again?
