Daniel Craig Turned Down This Much Money to Play Bond Again

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 07:04

Daniel Craig has reportedly turned down £68 million (approximately $99 million) to play James Bond in two more movies.

According to the Daily Mail's sources, Craig has said he is "done" playing Bond, despite MGM offering the huge sum for him to return for two more films beyond Spectre, including endorsements, profit shares and even a co-producer credit.

Craig has reportedly earned £38 million total for the four Bond films he has made so far.

Last year, Craig said he'd rather "slash my wrists" than play Bond again, but added that "If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money." Apparently, even that wasn't enough.

CW Airing Supergirl on Mondays; iZombie, The 100 Held for Midseason

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 06:59

The CW have announced their fall schedule and it seems Supergirl, while switching networks, will still be found in a familiar place - the series will air Monday nights at 8:00pm on the CW, the same timeslot the show had on CBS this past year.

With Legends of Tomorrow again airing Thursdays at 8:00pm in the fall (Season 1 was held for midseason), this means Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday all kick off with a Greg Berlanti-produced DC Comics series, including The Flash on Tuesdays and Arrow on Wednesdays.

Those latter two series will be used to launch two new shows. On Tuesdays, The Flash will lead into the new (possibly apocalyptic!) romantic comedy, No Tomorrow, while Arrow will be used to launch Frequency, an adaptation of the movie of the same name. Meanwhile, Supernatural (now in Season 12) will move to Thursdays, after Legends of Tomorrow, while Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will air Fridays after The Vampire Diaries.

The Doom Speedrun World Record Is Already Under 90 Minutes

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 06:30

It hasn't taken very long for speedrunners to start finding time-saving tricks for Doom.

Runner DraQu (thanks VG24/7) has achieved the world record Doom run, coming in at 1:29:58. However he says "the start of the run was bad and some fights were slow. Will be improved!"

Doom came out last week, and already speedrunners have found a few glitches that shave precious seconds off their times.

It's not just new games getting new records though. Last month Super Mario Bros. got a new world record of under five minutes. Also make sure to check out these 11 amazing speedruns from charity event Awesome Games Done Quick earlier this year.

Joker's New Rebirth Look (Possibly) Revealed

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 06:11

With DC's Rebirth line-wide comic relaunch approaching in June, many characters are getting a shake-up, and now it looks like we might have our first look at the new Joker. Artist Rafael Albuquerque revealed his retailer variant for Batman #1 on Instagram and it's not unlike Jared Leto's Joker from the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

Arrested Development Season 5 Will "Definitely Happen"

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 06:02

Arrested Development creator, Mitch Hurwitz has said that a fifth series of the acclaimed comedy will "definitely happen". Look, here he is saying it now:

"It'll happen. It'll definitely happen," Hurwitz explained to Esquire. "I say that because the actors want to do it, the studio wants to do it, Netflix wants to do it, I want to do it. It's just making it happen. There's no one resisting."

It sounds as though the only issue is timing for those involved - the same issue rumoured to have forced the fourth season to feature many characters separately, creating its non-linear narrative.

Cara Delevingne Did Weird Things to Get Suicide Squad Role

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 06:00

Model and actress Cara Delevingne has spoken about some of the things she was asked to do before getting the role of Enchantress in Suicide Squad.

"I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night," Delevingne told W Magazine. "He didn’t tell me anything about the movie. Instead, he showed me pictures of these amazing, enlightened, powerful, but very evil women."

The Kojima World Tour Was to Find an Engine for his New Game

IGN.com - Thu, 05/19/2016 - 05:09

Hideo Kojima has confirmed that his first post-Konami game will use a third-party engine, and that his well-documented trips to meet creatives - in video games and otherwise - have at least in part been to find which tools his new project will utilise.

Speaking at the Nordic Game 2016 festival, Kojima explained that in order to ensure a timely release for the new Kojima Productions' debut, he had to go against his preferred methods:

"I actually think it's better to make games using internal tools," Kojima said. "As for my first title, because I want to release it to the people who are waiting for it, for that title we are going to use a third-party engine - the reason I am travelling around the world is looking for such technology to use."

Harley Quinn #28 Review

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 23:38

If you've ever wondered what would happen if Harley Quinn and Deadpool crossed paths, this ongoing series' current storyline is probably the closest thing to an answer you'll see anytime soon. There's a lot of fun to be had as Harley butts heads with this thinly veiled parody of the Marc With a Mouth. Though disappointingly brief in the end, this arc helps the series regain its footing while also setting new wheels in motion.

The basic conceit of this pairing is that Red Tool (see, totally not Deadpool) has fallen head over heels for Harley and has arranged an elaborate wedding to cement their love. It's easy to picture Red Tool being written off as a one-note villain - more creepy stalker loser than legitimate character - but Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti don't make the mistake of dismissing him. Red Tool instead comes across as a fully realized person with wants and desires and even a rather sweet fascination with Harley. Sure, it's a little weird and a bit sleazy for a secret admirer to kidnap the object of their affection and tattoo his phone number on their behind, but by the end of this issue the two characters form a pretty tangible connection. Red Tool's analysis of Harley's life and personality serves as a winning tribute to a complex, funny and sometimes very tragic character.

Dwayne Johnson, Universal Ramping Up Bourne Author Robert Ludlum Cinematic Universe

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 23:18

Universal Pictures has joined forces with screenwriter James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, White House Down, The Amazing Spider-Man), Mythology Entertainment, and Captivate Entertainment to build a new cinematic universe based on the novels of the late Robert Ludlum, best known for his Jason Bourne series.

Their first project will be an adaptation of Ludlum’s The Janson Directive, featuring Dwayne Johnson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Janson Directive is an espionage thriller about an ex-Navy SEAL and highly sought-after corporate security consultant called Paul Janson, who is framed for the murder of a billionaire Nobel Peace Laureate and must uncover the truth while staying out of the crosshairs of his former colleagues.

Arrow: "Lost in the Flood" Review

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 22:31

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

“Starling City’s under attack. It must be May.”

That self-aware quip from Detective Lance was probably the highlight of Arrow’s lackluster third season climax, and it comes to mind as the show prepares to wrap up Season 4. Once again, a nefarious villain has put Star City in his crosshairs, and Ollie and friends are fighting a losing battle to save their city. But if these last couple episodes have succeeded in any area, it’s been in raising the stakes beyond the norm and building up a threat that looms over not just Star City, but the entire world. A master villain like Damien Darhk deserves no less.

If the threat of HIVE and Project Genesis wasn’t already clear, last week’s episode raised the stakes considerably by wiping out an entire town in a nuclear blast. It really says something about this enemy that their opening salvo claimed more lives than all three previous main villains combined. That disaster and all the other battles leading up to it nicely set the stage for this week’s conflict. Following a brief skirmish with a turbo-charged Darhk, Ollie and Diggle continued their hunt for Thea while Felicity and the rest of the gang worked furiously to stop HIVE from renewing their nuclear onslaught. It’s just a shame that one of these storylines didn’t live up to the other. I probably don’t even need to point out which was which.

Supernatural: "We Happy Few" Review

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 21:38

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

Structurally, "We Happy Few" probably should have ended on a freshly killed God. Without the brief end tag telling us that he was still alive because Amara, giving into a notable villain cliche, wanted him to stick around long enough to see her destroy all he loves. Hell, you could have even ended the season on Amara killing God and that would have made for a nice finish point. And cliffhanger.

Because it's been clear for a while now that Dean is the key. Despite his feelings for Amara, and his subconscious inability to kill her himself, he's got to be the one to take her out. So it looks like next week's season finale is all about that. It's just not as powerful as - you know - wiping God out of existence. Which it seemed like the show actually did here for the duration of an ad break. And it was kind of cool to briefly consider what the show could do with a dead deity. Because while certain beloved characters will always skirt death, the entire concept of ganking God is pretty big. So I really enjoyed that moment.

The Dark Tower: Stephen King Says Movie Not a Straight Adaptation

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 21:11

Author Stephen King has said Director Nikolaj Arcel's first Dark Tower film won't be entirely in step with his sprawling book series.

In a podcast with EW, King said that the film won't be a straight adaptation of his novels, but believes fans will get behind it nonetheless.

starts sort of in medias res", said King, "in the middle of the story instead of at the beginning, which may upset some of the fans a little bit. But they will get behind it, because it is the story."

Arcel's movie is the first in what will be several films based on King's seven-book series. It recently begun filming with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey as the gunslinger (Roland Deschain) and the man in black (Walter Padick), respectively.

Nintendo May Start Selling 'Computer Software'

Slashdot.org - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 20:30
An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Nintendo's most recent fiscal-year disclosure made headlines for announcing a release window for the new "Nintendo NX" console and yet another Zelda game delay, but it also included news of serious corporate restructuring. The short version: Nintendo will soon involve a supervisory committee in making top-level executive decisions. A Tuesday announcement included the company's amended articles of incorporation, expected to be approved by shareholders this June, and it included three new entries in its "business engagement" list: restaurants, medical and health devices, and "computer software." The choice of adding "computer software" to that list, on the other hand, seems particularly curious -- especially since Nintendo's existing list of engaged businesses includes terms that sound very much like computer software, particularly the broad term of "contents such as games, images, and music." That list also revised an entry that used to say that the company would license the "use or reproduction of copyrighted works" and "trademarks." Now, Nintendo will license its "intellectual property rights." That shift to the term "intellectual property" includes copyrighted works and trademarks in an umbrella that also may include such Nintendo-owned concepts as patents.

Every X-Men: Apocalypse Easter Egg

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 19:11

X-Men: Apocalypse is here and it's filled with tons of comic book Easter eggs, movie and TV references, and trivia from its production.

Warning: this article contains full spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse!

When we meet Wolverine he’s in full berserker mode and wearing his iconic Weapon X outfit from the comics.

Also, we’d like to think that the cage match in the film between Angel and Nightcrawler is a callback to Wolvie’s first appearance in the very first X-Men film.

Legends of Tomorrow Creator on What to Expect in the Finale

IGN.com - Wed, 05/18/2016 - 19:00

It's been a wild ride for Rip Hunter and his team over the past few months. They've chased Vandal Savage across time and suffered many defeats. That was especially true in last week's penultimate episode, "Destiny," where the team lost another member and learned that their entire mission has been manipulated by the Time Masters. Now it all comes down to one final battle with Savage in "legendary." Will the team finally stop their immortal foe? Will Rip's family be saved? How will the destruction of the Oculus affect Rip's mission in Season 2?

Luckily, we were able to pose these questions to Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim after watching last week's episode. Guggenheim teased what's to come in tomorrow's finale and how that will play into the new season. Guggenheim also touched on last week's dramatic twist on Arrow and its impact on Felicity Smoak. Scroll down to see what he had to say.
