Quick News Topics

  • Movie/TV News

    • Tomb Raider trailer is out and, damn, it’s very close to the latest game.  - Maxwell

 

  • Speaking of trailers, we got a trailer for something more in my wheelhouse. By that I mean something in an indie drama comedy, but not just any indie drama comedy. I mean the latest movie from Wes Anderson, The Isle of Dogs. This movie will be a stop motion animation movie featuring a cast of dogs. Voice actors include Scarlett Johanson, Bryan Cranston, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Ed Norton, Greta Gerwig, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, F. Murray Abraham, Courtney B. Vance, Ken Watanabe, Yoko Ono. Thats an impressive cast and if I had to guess, I would assume that Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson, Jason Schwartzmen, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, and Angelica Houston are probably involved too. Isle of Dogs comes out March 23, 2018. - Justin

  • Terminator 6 is getting made and we know James Cameron is producing it, but we have more details now and….well, I’ll just give the details and we can go from there. Linda Hamilton is back as Sarah Conner. Tim Miller, director of Deadpool, is going to be behind T6. Cameron is coming up with a story from an original idea. Arnold is playing the older man that the T800 was inspired by as witnessed in the Genesis movie. It’s considered a direct sequel to T2 and will be setting up a new trilogy. It will center around them passing the roles to new characters like we saw in the Force Awakens. - Maxwell

  • Also, we have somewhat of an idea on timeline as they start shooting in March 2018. But perhaps the best news to come is after T6 we get Triplets! Which is the sequel to the 1988 film Twins with Danny DeVito. This time they add in Eddie Murphy. - Maxwell

  • As mentioned I was able to see IT last week and I’m not surprised that it’s the highest grossing Horror movie of all time with $266 million in the US alone and it’s not even out of theaters yet. Well, for the first weekend since it’s release it was finally beat for the weekend performance by the Kingsman Golden Circle. While it did end up on top it still only managed 39 million while IT made 123 million and that was with Hurricane Irma pulling Florida out of the mix. - Maxwell

  • Stephen King’s IT Chapter 2 will be released in theaters and IMAX theaters on September 6, 2019 - Justin

  • Vice Principals Thoughts - ALL

 

  • Gaming/Tech News

    • We talked about Fortnite bringing a battle royale style game mode to the game. I got a chance to try it out. It does have potential but it is pretty buggy. The battle royale game mode will be free to play and can be downloaded by anyone on September 26. That being said, the creators of PUBG are PISSED. This game mode is a pretty clear ripoff of PUBG. The team at PUBG is apparently considering legal action to stop this from happening. - Justin

    • Destiny 2 is finally getting back factions. Each faction will have both themed gear and a special, exclusive gun. Factions go live tomorrow Sept 26th. -Travis

      • Dead Orbit - All blacked out Scout Rifle

      • Future War Cult - Tricolor Pulse Rifle

      • New Monarchy - Red and White Sidearm

    • Anyone that listens to this podcast knows that you two loved Super Mario Run. I have great news for everyone! They are about to get a big update that adds new levels, new gameplay, and adds princess peach as a playable character. Available September 29th it won’t be immediate for most to take advantage of the new additions. You will have to complete the current stages for the new ones and then the new Remix feature must be completed to unlock Peach. - Maxwell

      • On the iOS App Store super MARIO run will be on sale for 50% on the same day as well

    • Video game voice actors end 11-month strike against EA, Take-Two, and 9 other publishers -Travis

      • “The new transparency provisions will enhance the bargaining power of our members' representatives by requiring the companies to disclose the code name of project, its genre, whether the game is based on previously published intellectual property and whether the performer is reprising a prior role,” “Members are also protected by the disclosure of whether they will be required to use unusual terminology, profanity or racial slurs, whether there will be content of a sexual or violent nature and whether stunts will be required.”

      • The coalition of game companies included Activision Publishing, Blindlight, Corps of Discovery Films, Disney Character Voices, Electronic Arts, Formosa Interactive, Insomniac Games, Interactive Associates, Take-Two Interactive, VoiceWorks Productions, and WB Games. In a statement, companies said thenew contract will run for three years from the date of ratification, which should happen in the coming weeks.

 

  • Misc.

    • what are your thoughts on having Apple acquire Tesla and putting Elon Musk in the CEO spot?

    • Bill Gates now uses an Android phone, has no interest in an iPhone
      - Travis

      • It makes sense for Gates to pick Android over iOS. Microsoft is in the middle of a bitter battle with Google over productivity software, but Gates himself knows the long history of conflict with Apple intimately. And Android is closer to the Microsoft ethos. You can customize the operating system and run fringe apps easier on Android, and it's a platform that is widely supported by hundreds of other companies. Dell, Acer, and Asus are direct competitors with Apple. Samsung is a direct competitor with Apple.

      • Marvel Comics confirms major return for one superhero in Legacy this week - Travis

        • Axel Alonso, Marvel's editor-in-chief, told ComicBook.com that the journey of how and why Wolverine has returned from the dead is an intriguing one.

        • ““After three years of a Logan-free Marvel Universe, Logan is back, claws popped and ready for action,” Alonso said. “How he came back, why he came back, and just how he came into possession of that Infinity Stone are part of a fascinating story that's going to unveil soon, and in some unusual places.”
