Classic Sega Games Coming to TV?

sor2

In 2014, Sega announced plans to expand into TV and Films. We already know that Sega is planning a live action/CG Sonic the Hedgehog film. Now according to Variety, we’ve learned that Sega is planning TV shows based on Altered Beast and Streets of Rage. Stories International, Sega’s multimedia wing, is partnering with Circle of Confusion (Feat the Walking Dead, Powers, Dirk Gently) to create tv shows based upon the two properties. Altered Beast was an arcade game that hit the Genesis as a pack-in game. Playing as a resurrected warrior, players gain the ability to kill demons and absorb their essences to mutate into animal forms. Streets of Rage was a popular beat-em-up franchises starring a group of undercover cops attempting to clean up the city.

Sega is also attempting to bring several other franchises to tv and film, including Virtua Fighter, Crazy Taxi, Shinobi, Golden Axe, and House of the Dead. Coincidentally, House of the Dead was Sega’s first attempt at bringing its franchises to the screen. Uwe Boll directed the disastrous 2003 film while Michael Hurst (Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Ash vs Evil Dead) directed 2005’s even worse straight to dvd sequel. After that debacle, Sega can’t go anywhere but up. However when it comes to movies based on games



Justice League Dark Gets Trailer, Release Date, and R-Rating.

Earlier this week, DC released the first trailer to next year’s animated movie, Justice League Dark. Inspired by the comic of the same name, JLD features Batman teaming up with a series of DC’s supernatural heroes including John Constantine (voiced by Matt Ryan, who is reprising his TV role), Deadman, and Swamp Thing against a supernatural threat. The film will be available Digitally on January 24th, and will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 7. The film will be rated R for “some disturbing violence.”



Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser

Yesterday we got a look at the next installment of Marvel’s space odyssey. Not much was shown beside Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gammorah, Batista as Drax, and cameos by Rocket and Groot. However with Dr. Strange on the way in 2 weeks and the recent Logan trailer, we should have enough to chew on before the film’s May 5th 2017 release date.



Logan Trailer

Here’s our first look at Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. While it looks somewhat inspired by the Old Man Logan storyline, it looks like most of its inspiration comes from Clint Eastwood westerns and Mad Max. It’s definitely a different take on the superhero genre and could be fitting for Wolverine’s last hurrah. We also get a glimpse of Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce, and a little girl that some believe could be X-23. Check it out and tell us what you think.



Wolverine 3 Has New Name, Could be R-Rated

Very little has been revealed about the third solo Wolverine movie, save that it will be Hugh Jackman’s last time portraying the character, Patrick Stewart will be in it as Charles Xavier (in what could be his last time playing as the character), and its protagonist could be Mr. Sinister. Howsoever, it seems like we finally have a release date, along with a name change. Also, a page from the script was posted online by director James Mangold hints at what direction the film will take.
