*UPDATED* Clooney Won’t Discover That Dead is Better

Published

George Clooney in Pet Semetary*UPDATE* The B-D boys just heard from Clooney's publicist that he will not be in the film. Expect some solid casting news soon!**

Though this morning’s announcement that Heath Ledger would be playing The Joker in Warner Bros. sequel Batman: The Dark Knight was pretty strange, Bloody Disgusting managed to find out some even weirder casting news and got it confirmed.

Seems that none other than George Clooney is on board Paramount’s upcoming remake of Mary Lambert’s Pet Semetary, a film that’s been languishing in one form of development hell or another for years now. They were unable to find out just how big Clooney’s role would be, but I really don’t see why he couldn’t play father Louis Creed.

I guess we’ll be finding out more as production gets closer to being a reality, so stick around!

God of War Becomes the Highest Rated PS4 Exclusive On Metacritic

Published

on

If you’ve been paying any attention to the video game press over the last couple of days, you’ll know that God of War has been receiving some truly spectacular reviews. So much so, in fact, that it’s now the highest-rated PlayStation 4 exclusive game on Metacritic of all time, with an astounding score of 95%. The only PS4 games to score equal or higher are Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us, both of which were enhanced ports of previous PS3 releases.

God of War, which was developed by Sony Santa Monica, does away with the Greek mythology setting that was prevalent in the previous games, with Kratos, having destroyed the Olympian gods many years prior, now embarking on a quest with his son Atreus to scatter his wife’s ashes atop a sacred mountain.

Particular points of praise from reviewers were went towards the realistic graphics, the Norse mythological setting, the revamped combat system, the use of a continuous camera shot with no cuts, and the performances of Christopher Judge and Sunny Suljic as Kratos and Atreus. And as you would have come to expect from the franchise by now, the game is also as violent and brutal as it gets, so much so that the ESRB even promised that we’ll be able to tear off enemies’ jaws.

God of War will hit stores on April 20.
