SDCC 08: More Kombat Vs. DC Universe Details!



Kombat Vs. DC Universe (click to see it bigger!)Creepy just called in from Comic Con with a ton of details about the upcoming Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe video game, which as we told you yesterday will not be bloodless as we had originally feared!

First off, there are six new characters in this game: Shazam, Liu Kang, The Joker (hell yes!), Kitanna and The Green Lantern. None of them or any other players will be brandishing any weapons, but as you know, they don’t really need ‘em.

Each character will have his or her own fighting style, which will unfortunately be unchangeable. No learning new styles as you progress; what you got is what you keep for the whole game. As for the patented finishing moves, the DC heroes will have “Brutalities”, one of which Nomad got to see yesterday, while all the villains and Mortal Kombat characters will have “Fatalities”. It wouldn’t be the same without them!

Kombat Vs. DC Universe (click to see it bigger!)Perhaps the coolest news is that Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe will actually have two separate storylines, real, true storylines, depending on if you pick an MK combatant or a DC icon. The story was written by Jimmy Palmiotti, who has worked on comics like Jonah Hex, Friday the 13th, The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning and a lot more. The plot will unfold episodically, which seems to really be the new thing to do in gaming, with each character having its own chapter of the overall arc.

Sounds like it’s going to be a lot more than just punching, kicking, and impaling for this one. Oh, and speaking of which, the game also has two brand-new features: “Up Close Kombat”, where the camera zooms in while you’re fighting and you can watch the damage you inflict show up on your opponent, and “Free Fall Kombat”, where you can continue fighting after taking a fall from a great height. Nice!

All right, I admit I’m excited for this now. Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe will be hitting Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on December 15th!

Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In



Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The film hits theaters April 20.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

See What We Do in the Shadows on the Small Screen



No, we’re not talking about watching the hilarious vampire comedy, What We Do in the Shadows, at home on TV, cable, or Blu-ray… what we’ve got here is a bonafide television series in the works at FX! That’s right, kids, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are poised to take a bite out of TV!

Deadline is reporting that both Clement and Waititi have scored a pilot order from FX for a half-hour comedy series based on the 2014 mockumentary horror film.

Clement is attached as writer and executive producer on TV adaptation and Waititi will direct and executive produce. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, and Harvey Guillen are set to star in the FX pilot, executive produced by Scott Rudin, Paul Simms, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush.

Novak will play Nandor, the head vampire of the house. Berry plays Lazslo is the goofiest in the house, the type of vampire that turns into a bat and flies into a wall. Demetriou plays Nadja, the badass female vampire of the house. Guillen is believed to play Nandor’s assistant.
