A feature-length animated Godzilla movie is in development at Toho, the Japanese creator and home of the King of the Monsters, and will be released sometime next year.
According to Variety, the screenplay for the film, simply titled Godzilla, is being written by Psycho-Pass: The Movie writer Gen Urobuchi and will tell an original story.
Polygon Pictures is producing the animated feature, and Detective Conan series director Kobun Shizuno is co-directing the film alongside Hiroyuki Seshita, who helmed the popular Netflix anime series Knights of Sidonia. "We’re aiming to make a big-scale animation entertainment that people who love Godzilla and people who know nothing about him can both enjoy," Shizuno said of the project in a statement.
Supergirl star Melissa Benoist has revealed the first on-set photo of herself with former Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter.
Posted on her official Instagram page, the photo shows Benoist in costume embracing Carter, who will play the President of the United States in the show's second season.
Carter played Wonder Woman/Diana Prince from 1975-1979 in the TV series based on the DC Comics character. According to the casting announcement made earlier this year, Carter will make her debut in the third episode of Supergirl's sophomore season.
Emmy Award-winning actor Aaron Paul may be known for playing one of TV's baddest bad boys, but he's really a good guy. Not just because he voices one in Square Enix's upcoming film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. (He plays the part of Nyx Ulric, the movie's earnest main protagonist). He actually risked his life once to save another person. We got a chance to ask Aaron about that, why he chose to do Kingsglaive, and what he thinks of the current US presidential election.
IGN: I was at the Final Fantasy XV event in LA back in March, and when they debuted the Kingsglaive trailer, I turned to my friend and said, "Nyx Uldric looks like Aaron Paul." And then seconds later the company announced you were doing the voice of Nyx. Did Square Enix deliberately make the character look like you? Or was that just a happy coincidence?
A new photo of Rogue One: Star Wars Story has been revealed, providing a closer look at Ben Mendelsohn's villainous character Director Orson Krennic.
Krennic was featured on the second cover of the latest issue of Empire. See Mendelsohn's white-caped character, alongside a group of elite stormtroopers (aka Death Troopers) below.

Undertale is a hugely successful and immensely popular game, thanks in part to its incredible cast of characters, unique gameplay, and thoughtful message.
A major part of the Undertale phenomenon has been its dedicated fanbase, which, a year after the game's debut, are still hard at work putting out some of the best fan art of any community: everything from detailed digital paintings of their favorite Undertale characters, to light-hearted doodles, and more.
One of the Undertale community's favorite characters? The one and only jokester skeleton bro, Sans. Check out the gallery below for 21 awesome pieces of Sans fan art.

As summer begins to wind down, WWE's ready to turn up the heat with its annual SummerSlam event, airing this Sunday on the WWE Network.
It'll be a jam-packed card -- that will most likely run over four hours, like last year's show -- with some promising bouts, ranging from grudge matches like John Cena vs. AJ Styles to battles for new championships, like Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor. We've perused the entire card, sifted trough the offerings, and come up with the 5 matches we're most excited for (sorry, Lesnar vs. Orton, you're among those we're somewhat wary of - though we'd be happy for a surprise!).
Check out our list below and be sure to return to IGN on Sunday for our SummerSlam live-blog.
A new trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon debuted at the 2016 Pokemon World Championships, currently being held in San Francisco, showing off four new Pokemon coming to the latest generation of the game.
The latest look at the upcoming games reveals Crabrawler, Sandygast, Palossand, and Stufful as the latest additions to the new lineup. Check out all four newly revealed Pokemon in the trailer below.
Crabrawler, shown off during the World Championships keynote, is a Fighting-type crab Pokemon. Two sandcastle-themed Pokemon were also revealed in the trailer — Sandygast and its evolved form Palossand. Both are Ghost and Ground types with the Water Compaction ability.
Introducing Lift, the newest multiplayer map in the Gears of War 4 lineup. This dynamic map features areas that open and close as lift moves downward during the match.
Take a flythrough tour of Lift here to get a feel for the cover in the video below.
Then check out some of the first shotgun action on Lift in this guided gameplay video:
Miranda Sanchez has destroyed countless Locust in her Gears of War career. Listen to her on IGN's Anime Club podcast and follow her on Twitter.
Disney has filed a patent to allow the company to use drone technology to beam lasers through foggy environments towards someone wielding a custom lightsaber.
According to PatentYogi, the Star Wars-like interaction is achieved by filling an area with vapor, then arming a person with a specially-designed lightsaber that’s capable of transmitting IR lights towards the laser-shooting drones.
The IR rays are transmitted from the saber to the drone, then an IR sensor built into the drone creates a field of view based from where the person is standing, allowing it to – presumably – open laser fire.
Final Fantasy XV’s two month delay to November this week may have been a disappointment to some fans, but Square Enix is confident it will make for a better experience once the game is available worldwide.
Speaking to IGN at Gamescom, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata explained that a hefty day one patch was originally in store for the game, but ultimately he didn’t want fans who play offline to be unable to experience the game at its best. Instead, he wanted the game to be in its most polished state as soon as players put in the disc.
“Originally I was thinking it would be okay and we could put all of the extra updates into a day-one patch,” Tabata told IGN. “But at that point I learned there are maybe a lot of people out there who play in an offline environment and don’t have internet. When I found that out, thinking about it again, I’m glad I didn’t make that decision.”
H.P. Lovecraft – a man who knew a thing or two about horror – famously believed that “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”. Right now so much of Resident Evil 7 lies in the shadows.
The Beginning Hour demo – released during E3 – gave us a taster of the franchise’s new tone and direction but importantly it wasn’t lifted from the final game. The Lantern demo, however, is in Resident Evil 7 but it’s another found footage tape, depicting the horrific final moments of a woman.
We’ve been talking to Matt and Ross Duffer – the brilliant minds behind Netflix smash Stranger Things – and they’ve been spilling the beans about the future of the show.
So SPOILER ALERT if you haven't watched Season 1 or don't want to know anything about Season 2.
A second season hasn’t officially been announced, but as they’ve all-but-confirmed it’s happening, we asked about the fate of two major characters who were in bad shape at the end of the first season.
And the outlook isn’t good for Barbara. One of the show’s breakout characters, Barb was last seen looking very much dead in the Upside Down. But as the brothers recently paraphrased James Cameron when talking about no one ever really being dead in sci-fi, we asked if she might reappear in Season 2.
Any game bearing the Deus Ex name sets a high bar for itself, and yet, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided clears it handily. The followup to Deus Ex: Human Revolution retains the strong gameplay blueprint of choice-driven stealth and RPG gameplay that defines the series, but its superlative map and mission designs elevate it to new highs.
Mankind Divided’s gorgeously realized version of Prague is deeply infused with meaty, multi-part quests that give you plenty of chances to leverage its toy chest of cool gadgets and abilities. Its story is just slightly limited in scope compared to the far-reaching conspiracies the plot often alludes to, but in terms of raw gameplay, this is the best the series has ever been.
We've been in Germany all week, playing games and pushing through hordes of gaming enthusiasts. It's been great.
So do you want to hear more about a game featuring shrivelled sausages and a pit of leather shoes? Of course you do.

“Every year our goal is to be the most realistic sports game on the market,” 2K Sports Brand Manager Andrew Blumberg told a room of reporters at Gamescom 2016. It’s a tall order, but one that NBA 2K developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K take seriously. Nearly every update and announcement for the upcoming NBA 2K17 is a reflection of the current affairs in professional basketball, from spotlighting up and coming talent like Indiana Pacer small forward Paul George to putting Kobe Bryant on the cover of the special editions just one year after his NBA retirement.
2K Sports’ Gamescom presentation started with a focus on basketball in Europe. They quickly recapped how Spain’s towering power foward/center Pau Gasol and Italy’s talented small forward Danilo Gallinari will appear as cover athletes of NBA 2K17 in certain regions. And for the first time, the Euro League would have 21 up-to-date teams in the game. “In the past, we’ve been a year behind,” Blumberg said, “just because European teams are selected late in the summer and it didn’t work for our timelines.” Since the Euro league adopted a new format this year, it allowed 2K to identify teams much earlier and get them into the new game.
