Mortal Kombat 11 May Be Announced at E3 2018

Before working on fighting game series like Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals, NetherRealm Studios came to be known as the house of the legendary Mortal Kombat series. From the '90s era this franchise has been known to all for dreadful violence and a tense gameplay. It has changed and then evolved over time but still remains popular after two decades. Recently, a Tweet from game's director Ed Boon may have teased for Mortal Kombat 11, which probably is on its way.

Series creator Ed Boon has found immense success though the first Injustice game and its sequel, Injustice 2 but yet wants people to remember how important it is. Boon occasionally jokes around with his fans over social media every now and then, which also supplies a lot of potential clues for upcoming games and additional contents. Most of the tie his Tweets are not just trolling and besides, since there is a hint of a tease, he probably isn't kidding and might really drop something.

Lately, when a random Twitter user was pointing out that it would really be cool if their studio introduces a fourth DLC pack of fighting characters for their critically acclaimed game Injustice 2. Though he didn't shut him down on the possibility of that ever happening but decided to counter asking him "You know what ELSE would be kool....?" If you know that his history of fondness for using the letter "K" instead of "C", then you will notice that it surely is a tease for Mortal Kombat!

Also, it all makes sense because from 2013, NetherRealm Studios has been releasing Mortal Kombat titles and Injustice series one after another. Since DC Universe fighting game Injustice 2 came out almost a year ago, an E3 2018 reveal won't really be that surprising at all. Maybe will all these recent leaks from Walmart for upcoming games are what inspired Boon to be a bit playful about their upcoming project. The good news is, we will not have to wait much longer to find out the truth as E3 is almost upon us.

The last game from the franchise was 2015's Mortal Kombat X, which was released on Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So, it is safe to assume that the alleged new installment will also be compatible with these platforms as well. For years, the studio has been developing all these incredible fighting games, which keeps us well entertained and always wanting some more. Let's just wait and see what Ed Boon and his teams are working so hard on these days!

F.E.A.R. Live-Action Movie in Development

2005's first-person horror shooter F.E.A.R. from developer Monolith Productions and publisher Warner Bros. was both a critical and commercial success. The game succeeds in blending a tense mood of horror with the vibe of an action shooter on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It would later spawn two sequels, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin in 2009 and F.E.A.R. 3 in 2011. Recently, Machinima Studios has come up with an announcement of a live-action film adaptation of F.E.A.R.

The series follows with encounter of the titular organization in a supernatural affair and the protagonist is known as Point Man. Aside from fighting cloned super soldiers, he has to deal with induced hallucination while a larger mystery is about to unveil. Turns out, he actually shares a connection to a supernaturally powered little girl named Alma, whose rage and destruction has to stop at any cost. After a while with the series, now they have decided to make a movie on it.

Screenwriter Greg Russo has been roped in by Machinima to write a script for live-action F.E.A.R. movie, where Warner Bros. will be involved as well. Russo already has his hands quite full with upcoming adaptation of new Mortal Kombat movie and a rebooted Resident Evil series for Screen Gems. That means, he is a suitable candidate for the job as he is getting more and more familiar with video game adaptations. Russell Arons of Machinima also believes bringing Greg on board was a right choice for them.

After putting the franchise on ice for so long, the attempt of bringing the series back may seem a bit out of the blue at first but since Machinima is a division of Warner Bros., it is quite natural that they would be interested in doing so. Another reason could be that after remaining so long in hiatus, they are making a movie on the plot before rebooting or developing new installments of the horror shooter. This way, they will spike interest in people who never played F.E.A.R. before and bring former fans back too.

Dwayne Johnson Throws Shade at Doom Movie

When praising Rampage, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson throws shade at Doom movie and their Twitter respond back!

Hollywood superstar and former WWE megastar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) is having quite a good time as his recent success at box-office with the release of sci-fi monster flick Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures, which is based on a 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games. The movie is solely based on an original story that only borrows the monstrous creatures and few other aspects from the game it is based on.

RELATED: Rampage is Highest-Rated Video Game Movie Ever

Though video game movie adaptations mostly end up being a huge commercial failure as well as a critical disaster beyond redemption, Rampage managed to change that by scoring 53% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes aside from a very steady opening weekend. The rating was set on a basis of 153 reviews on this review aggregation site following the day of its release. So, that means, the film is on a good standpoint in either way and that's actually new to this unique genre.

Seeing his work finally breaking the longest running curse of video game movie being failures, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joyfully posted a Tweet.




While he was being all thankful at Rampage’s recent success, he couldn't help but playfully point out that he also starred in 2005's sci-fi action horror movie adaptation of Doom and how it was a complete disaster all along. This is actually true that director Andrzej Bartkowiak’s Doom movie was so bad and very poorly-written that even the combined star-power of Johnson himself along with actor Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike couldn't save it from sky fall it experienced.

However, Rock calling Doom a “stinker” didn't go well with whoever runs the official Twitter account for Doom who was not so pleased. They got back at Johnson by responding in a minimal but classy way by Tweeting out ‘Dwayne.’ Guess, the film being so bad was already quite painful for them and then he had to drag it back decade after once again was too much for them to bear. Doom is a popular first person shooter game of 1993 and is reworked for a quasi-reboot which came out in 2016 from id Software and Bethesda Softworks.

Rampage is Highest-Rated Video Game Movie Ever

Based on a 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games, sci-fi monster movie Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures is released already. It features Hollywood superstar and former WWE megastar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) in the role Davis Oyoke, who is a primatologist and friend with a silverback gorilla named George. When his friend becomes victim of a mutagen, it mutates him and other animals into monstrous creatures, which starts a "Rampage" in Chicago.

Although video game movie adaptations have a bad reputation of being botched out all the times, Johnson's monster flick Rampage seems to have just changed that. A day after it came out, the film currently holds 53% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 153 reviews on their site. They have a list of 46 video game movies that they ranked in order of worst to best and joining ranks with its predecessors, Rampage currently is highest rated video game movie of all time.

Smelling something good cooking over at Rotten Tomatoes today, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson took Twitter to express his excitement on the news.

Review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes actually scores on the average of positive reviews from those who watched the film. Just because Rampage has a great opening on RT means, everyone else has picked it as their favorites. Another review site, Metacritic has given it 45, based on 43 of their critics and that is not considerably good! They have held Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) in high regard in ranks of video game movie adaptations.

Video game enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for years to see the curse of low rating for a video game movie to finally end at some point. Many fans had high hopes for Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed (2016) movie but even that couldn't live up to expectation and ended up garnering only 18% score. We are still trying to forget the god-awful adaptations of Bloodrayne (2006), Street Fighter (1994) and Super Mario Bros. (1993) that still haunts our memory till this date.

What filmmakers and studios do that go wrong in cases like this is that they either try to make a cinematic rip-off or their own version of garbage, which makes the critics cringe. It appears that Johnson's monster flick Rampage finally has broke the curse of video game movie with his celluloid portrayal of bromance between man and beast. Alicia Vikander starrer Tomb Raider movie is the only one that came any closer of uplifting this curse so far with a 51% positive rating.

Rampage Movie Second Trailer

Currently, Warner Bros. Pictures is busy with their upcoming lineup for DC Films but that doesn't mean they wouldn't love to try and make some cash with a video game movie. To make sure that doesn't go absolutely wrong, they have signed Hollywood megastar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) for their upcoming monster flick Rampage. The second trailer for the film has just been released and we are here for that.

Check out the second official trailer for Dwayne Johnson's upcoming sci-fi monster movie Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures below.




Rampage is a potential box-office hit movie based on the 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games. Johnson is starring as the character Davis Oyoke, who is a primatologist and friend with an albino gorilla named George, whom he rescued at the age of 2. As his gorilla friend grows into a 1,000-pound massive sized creature after being exposed to an experimental genetic material, George goes out to wreck havoc and Oyoke steps in to help his lifelong friend in need.

Also, George is not the only one rampaging through the city of Chicago. We are introduced to the two other mutated animals; Ralph the wolf and Lizzie the crocodile. The second theatrical trailer offers more action involving all these monsters running amok the populace and how military has been unsuccessful to even slow them down. At one point, we see Ralph the wolf flying throughout a building and Lizzie the crocodile crushing a plane between her jaws. Davis Oyoke probably manages to team-up with his friend George to fight these other monsters.

Directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, San Andreas), action-adventure monster movie Rampage is all set to release on April 20, 2018.

Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Just as the prequel Injustice: Gods Among Us took the gaming world by storm, developer NetherRealm Studios presents fighting game Injustice 2 repeated the history and created a new one. Back in November 2017, NetherRealm made announcement of introducing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the world of DC's most popular duel of heroes on February 2018 and that time is finally here.

From across the Multiverse, our beloved heroes in half-shell have finally made their way to Injustice 2 and they have just debuted in a gameplay trailer today. Watch them boys at work with their bo-staff, nunchakus, sai and sword.




Seeing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo going up against the biggest and baddest there is from the DC Universe is truly a spectacle of a lifetime. However, bringing the fan favorite mutant heroes from another franchise makes a lot of eyebrows raise but this is not the first time Warner Bros. have done that. Previously, paranormal investigator and a demon from Hell, Hellboy of Dark Horse Comics along with Mortal Kombat's Raiden joined the Injustice 2 roster.

Well, the Ninja Turtle brothers fight the warlord from Dimension X and their arch-nemesis Krang on a regular basis and he is from out of the world. So, obviously there is quite a lot of inter-dimensional travelling they do very often. One such trip has gone sore and they have ended up in a world not any less-crazier than theirs. Besides, DC Universe has their fair share of twisted plots regarding the Multiverse and that makes the explanation pretty legit.

Oh and in case, anyone was wondering, Ed Boon from NetherRealm Studios has posted on Twitter how to get your Ninja Turtles from the character selection screen of the game.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will join the fight this month and the date will actually depend on the players. Those who own the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2 can get their hands of them from February 13. Otherwise, you can also buy the Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack 3 for access to the characters on that same day. Rest of the players worldwide will have their turn from February 20 onwards and the stand-alone DLC purchase will cost them only $9.99.

Injustice 2 is a fighting video game based on the properties of DC Comics, which was released by NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to begin with. A version of the game is also available to play on Android and iOS devices as well. We are still hoping that they feature a few popular characters from Watchmen franchise of DC Comics to the game someday.

Rampage Movie "BIG MEETS BIGGER" Trailer

Back in November 2017, the official trailer for Rampage was released and now comes another one titled "BIG MEETS BIGGER", that offers more footage from the film.



Like the first official trailer, "BIG MEETS BIGGER" clip did not just stayed on the course of the film's plot. Instead, it gives us brand-new and exclusive peak into the mutated animals with better visuals. This one-minute long clip still gives us glimpse of how the mysterious green steam came to turn Johnson's character Davis Oyoke’s white gorilla friend George into a massive sized, 1,000-pound worth of machine of destruction.

Problem is, the super-sized silverback gorilla George isn't the only animal that has gone through an unusual “genetic editing” which turned him into a monster. Turns out, there are other players at play counting Ralph the wolf and Lizzie the crocodile in. Together, all of them tear apart and wreck havoc throughout Chicago, while Oyoke tries to find a way to save the city as well as his old buddy! Plus, he has his funny line when he was brawling with a few soldiers in the middle of this mess.

She displays some of her deadly move sets on her Task Force X colleague Deadshot and Harley Quinn as they both fell under the hex of Enchantress. Her power sets mostly are trashing her opponents with blasts and sharp weapons constructed with dark magic. She can even summon demons from other dimensions to assist her and can even turn one’s soul onto their own.
