British pop star Ellie Goulding may have recorded the theme song to SPECTRE, the upcoming 24th James Bond movie.
According to Showbiz 411, BMI Music has a song registered under Ellie Goulding titled “Spy” that the site believes is actually the theme song to SPECTRE. The singer has dropped hints recently that link the song to SPECTRE.
Yesterday, Goulding posted an image on Instagram of her leaving the Abbey Road Studios in London, with the caption “That’s a wrap!”
Nexon is partnering with Electronic Arts to develop and publish a PC online version of Respawn’s Titanfall for the Asian market called Titanfall Online.
While today’s announcement was light on game details and launch window, Nexon revealed that the game will be a free-to-play version of the Xbox One exclusive.
“We look forward to working with the talented teams at Respawn and EA and leveraging Nexon's free-to-play expertise to deliver a new and engaging online game based on Titanfall To the Asian market," Nexon president and CEO Owen Mahoney said in a prepared statement.
An untitled sequel to the 2014 sci-fi first-person shooter is also in the works. Respawn founder and CEO Vince Zampella confirmed with IGN in March that Titanfall 2 is in development and will be released on multiple platforms.
Channing Tatum’s deal with 20th Century Fox to play leading man Remy LeBeau in its upcoming X-Men spin-off film Gambit is allegedly in danger of falling apart, claims a report on TheWrap.
The rumour comes via an unnamed source who claims the star is planning to exit the project.
A second source confirmed to TheWrap that representatives for Tatum remain in active discussions with Fox but apparently conceded that “something is up.”
Fox and Tatum are yet to comment on the matter.
Windows 10's official release isn't until tomorrow, but some users are seeing their PCs downloading and updating to the new operating system early.
As Windows Central reports, Microsoft has already begun to roll out the last version of Windows to certain computers in what may be an attempt to take some pressure off of their servers. Lucky users will know if they're getting Windows 10 early if they find a new folder called "$windows.~BT." The move will, presumably, make the whole upgrading process faster and smoother when even more people decide to make the jump on Wednesday.
Today, during Netflix's presentation at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Sense8 co-creator/executive producer J. Michael Straczynski weighed in on the show's chances for renewal. An announcement many thought might happen today side-by-side with the news that Netflix had picked up Bojack Horseman for a Season 3.
"We're still awaiting word," Straczynski said. "We're in the process. We're waiting for a final determination. We're cautiously optimistic, but ultimately it's Netflix's call."
343 Industries has elaborated on why it decided to “sacrifice” split-screen support from Halo 5: Guardians, explaining the “difficult” decision in a post on Halo Waypoint.
“The decision to remove split-screen support from Halo 5: Guardians was one of the most difficult ones we’ve ever had to make as a studio,” wrote 343’s studio head Josh Holmes. “We know that for many of our fans, Halo has meant playing together with friends in the same room. We all have great memories of past Halo split-screen multiplayer matches.”
Holmes explained the “tough” choice was made due to the team’s desire “for scale, fidelity and focus.”
When Cinemax renewed Banshee for an eight-episode Season 4 - two episodes less than the usual 10 - fans wondered if it signaled the end. Well, that plus the fact that Banshee EP/Showrunner Greg Yaitanes was also developing a new series for Cinemax called Quarry - and that he'd be directing all eight episodes of its first season.
Now TVLine.com has learned that Banshee is in fact ending with Season 4 - though still unconfirmed by Cinemax at this point.
Jon Watts, the director set to helm Marvel and Sony's upcoming Spider-Man reboot, believes the recently cast Tom Holland will be "perfect" for the role of the web-slinging hero.
"He can be a real high school student," Watts told EW. "That’s why people love Spider-Man. He’s the most grounded, relatable of superheroes. And Tom can really do that. He captures that. And he can do a standing back-flip. He’s perfect."
Holland will appear as Spidey before the standalone film in Captain America: Civil War, requiring a collaborative process within the Marvel film universe that Watts only had good things to say about.
Id's upcoming Doom uses some game mechanics usually associated with older shooters: Health doesn't regenerate, you don't need to reload, and your movement speed is incredibly high.
But in other ways, Doom feels more contemporary. It uses loadouts in multiplayer, and you can mantle to move through the environment, for example.
At QuakeCon, I spoke with Marty Stratton, the Executive Producer on Doom, about how his team is blending old and new. It turns out the answer isn't so simple.
"Ultimately, I don’t think it’s about old and new," Stratton said. "It’s about what’s fun and what’s Doom. We started early on with trying to figure out the game’s identity. Not what is 'old Doom,' but what is Doom? How does it make us feel? What do we want from a Doom experience? When we boil it down, are the things we’re doing feeding into that?"
Warner Bros. appears to have found Wonder Woman’s love interest in the upcoming DC movie.
The Wrap reports Star Trek's Chris Pine has closed on a deal to star as Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, with Gal Gadot of course playing the titular role. According to sources, Pine signed a multi-picture deal, including sequel options.
In the comic books, U.S. Army intelligence officer Steve Trevor crashes a plane on Paradise Island, Princess Diana's home. She cares for him, follows him home, and eventually becomes Wonder Woman.
Pine was previously rumored to be up for the role of Steve Trevor and was most recently rumored to be in the running to star as Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern Corps movie. It would seem that is no longer the case.

King's Quest: A Knight to Remember is a beautiful experiment in resurrecting the conventions of gaming’s past and dressing them up in the lush graphics available today. For the most part, it works, with this, the first of five episodes, telling a lighthearted fantasy story around simple action and rewarding puzzles about knights and dragons. The middle of its roughly six hours can drag a bit as you hunt down the items you need to progress, but even those are full of detailed art and enthusiastic performances.
As with the classic King’s Quest game from 1984, a Knight to Remember is the story of the likeable but overly excitable Graham, who's working his way toward being a knight (and eventually king). But this new version is a quality reboot that tells an all-new story of Graham’s attempts to outwit four other candidates for an open knight position, and it’s told capably enough that it should be appealing to newcomers as well as veterans. The caveat to that is that there’s no tutorial or even a quest list to introduce new players to the conventions of this old-school-style adventure and guide you through it, which means you’ll have to be comfortable figuring things out on your own.
Collectible company First 4 Figures has revealed its next video game-inspired creation, a statue of Kirby's rival Meta Knight.
The 16-inch statue is cast in polystone resin and hand-painted, showing Meta Knight dashing into battle with a trail of flames and wielding his sword, Galaxia. It's now available for pre-order on the official site.
Steven S. DeKnight was at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today for a panel devoted to Netflix series showrunners, discussing his time working on Marvel’s Daredevil. While DeKnight has stepped down from that role for Season 2, thanks to prior commitments, he had some time before that next project – which DeKnight isn’t able to reveal details on yet – got going, which led to his recent stint in the Transformers writers room.
Taking a page from how a TV show is run, Paramount assembled a big group of experienced writers to help chart out the future of the Transformers film series, under the guidance of Akiva Goldsman, as the studio looks to build more of an expanded Transformers movie universe. I asked DeKnight what the experience was like taking that TV dynamic and using it in film, and he had an enthusiastic reply.
The latest batch of cars coming to Forza Motorsport 6 has been revealed.
In its fifth week of car announcements, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have pulled back the curtain on a whopping 41 new cars coming to the Xbox-exclusive racer.
The lineup includes two cars from the 2014 British Touring Car Championship: the 2014 Audi #67 Rotek Racing S3 Saloon and the 2014 Toyota #80 Speedworks Motorsport Avensis, both of which can be seen below, courtesy of Xbox Wire.
Here's the full lineup of all 41 new additions:
A remake of the silent horror film Nosferatu is in the works at Studio 8.
Deadline reports the currently untitled remake of the 1922 classic will be written and directed by Robert Eggers. Eggers wrote and directed The Witch, which earned him the directing award at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen’s production company, Parts and Labor, will produce the film.
This wouldn't be the first time Nosferatu was remade; Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre was released in 1979.
A company is now selling "flatulence filtering" underwear - that is, underwear that will absorb your farts.
Shreddies underwear has been around for awhile, but today we've learned of the odor-stopping wonder thanks to Geek.com. Shreddies are made special by their "Zorflex" activated carbon panels, which trap and neutralise the scent of a fart. (Alas, the sound will remain.)
With a friendly and accessible approach to card battling and charming hand-drawn art reminiscent of a day dreaming junior high schooler’s sketchbook, Guild of Dungeoneering manages to be endearing and cute in a way most strategic turn-based dungeon crawlers aren’t. Its biggest limitation is a short and punchy style of gameplay that ultimately puts a cap on the complexity and depth of its tactics just as things start to get good.
A humorous take on turn-based dungeon crawling puts you not in the role of a single, glory-seeking hero, but a rejected thrillseeker-turned-guild master looking to steal some glory from those who doubted you. Your goal of rounding up a ragtag team of disposable adventurers and sending them out in search of loot adds some light-hearted justification for the harsh amounts of permadeath in store, making the fact that your guild’s cemetery will largely outweigh the trophy room darkly comic. This setup establishes a playful tone early on, though all the tongue-in-cheek bard’s tunes were a bit overly cutesy for my tastes.
This week, Max, Marty, Goldfarb and Altano have a nice little chat on Rise of the Tomb Raider coming to PS4, China lifting its console ban, and how they feel about the fact that they can romance a whole bunch of people in Fallout 4.
