Warner Bros. is oiling the promotional machine for next year's Mad Max: Fury Road film, as the movie studio showed four new posters for the George Miller action flick at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend.

The resin statue stands at 20 inches tall and is rendered in 1/4 scale. It includes full color packaging, hand numbered base, and an authenticity card. Currently, it is available for pre-order, but it is still subject to final approval and the images are representative only.

Two Tribes, the developer responsible for games like Toki Tori 2 and Rush, has announced a new title – a 2D platformer called RIVE.
The developer describes the game as a “metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter.” Two Tribes said RIVE is inspired by retro gaming, much like some of their previous titles.
Players will be in control of a gun-wielding hero who both shoots and hacks enemy robots. Not much else is known about the game at this point.
The company suffered a massive reboot earlier this year, in which the "old Two Tribes," founded in 2001 was disbanded. This will be the first outing for the new team of just three members.

Players expecting a Steam key for PC side-scroller Stained will not be receiving them, as developer RealAxis is declining to distribute them to those who purchased the bundle the game was originally included in.
Last year, players who purchased the Indie Royale's Debut 3 bundle were promised keys for Stained. But after the game was greenlit via community approval, RealAxis said it would not be releasing the keys because of low sales.
"The game is not selling at all and there is no hope," the developer wrote on Stained's Steam page. "I think we are already doomed so we are abandoning the process of distributing the keys. We will continue to do what is required to make the living and provide support to game related questions twice a week. If you really love this game you should consider buying it on steam else I think you already had your share of enjoyment when you purchased the game via IR-Bundle for 50 cents."
During the Dynamite Comics 10th Anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that The Hateful Eight would be his next film -- but that's not the only idea he's toying with. In fact, the filmmaker is thinking about tackling an entirely new genre altogether.
When asked if he would ever take on a sci-fi or fantasy movie, Tarantino said he was very open to the idea, according to Indiewire. "If you had asked me a few years ago I would have said: 'Nah, not really, I don't know.' But I have a little idea right now," Tarantino said. "It's a little flower, you know, like a bean sprout, but those tend to grow into stalks. So this is the first time I'll be able to say 'maybe.' It won't be a spaceship sci-fi, it'll be Earthbound."

While attending FOX's recent Television Critics Association presentation, we had the chance to chat with actors Robin Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith about their roles as the young Penguin and Riddler, respectively, on the network's Batman prequel series Gotham.
Here's what the men who would be two of Batman's biggest archenemies had to say about the series, set to debut this fall.
IGN TV: So when they came to you with the role of the Penguin, what ran through your mind?
Robin Lord Taylor: Honestly, it was just an audition that I was submitted on by my agent, like any other pilot season, and it was a dummy side. So they didn't give me any of the scripts. It was all fake names, a fake scene, all of that. But then, right before I went in, my agent was like, "By the way, it's the Penguin." And I was like...
Marvel didn't just stop at unveiling footage and posters for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron at San Diego Comic-Con, but the studio also showcased some of the props for the superhero sequel as well.
One of the most-alarming props on display was no doubt Captain America's broken shield, hinting that Steve Rogers may be in for quite the fight in the sequel. Most likely the cause of the Captain's shattered weapon is Ultron, and Marvel displayed what looks to be one of the villain's earlier versions at Comic-Con (we saw footage of him in action at the panel).
