Tom Hardy Confirmed for Venom 2

To the surprise of nobody, despite the negative reviews Venom is getting a sequel after a massive $855 million box office run, which actually makes it the most successful super hero origin story of all time at that time.It could be debated that Aquaman took that title, but that depends if on how you view that movie and personally I would count that as the king of origin movies.

With the confirmation of that sequel tho, is that it is now also confirmed Tom Hardy will be back as Venom. Even more surprising tho is Venom screenwriter said back in December that a Venom Spider-man movie wasn’t “impossible”  and Kevin Feige recently states that it would probably be up to Sony to bring the characters together. So while it is probably bad for your health to hold your breath on that one, stranger things have happened. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Halloween 2 To Start Filming in 2019

Blumhouse’s Halloween 2 was always going to be a thing after the success of last years release on the 40th anniversary of the franchise had so much success. Well, we now know it will be filming this fall to release in 2020 most likely to nobodies surprise, in October.

Last years movie had about a 10 million dollar budget and made around 255 million dollars on only a 10 million dollar budget. That is one hell of a profit margin, so a new movie is pretty much a definite. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Top Gun 2

For those that aren’t aware, the movie was confirmed back in 2015 sometimes and was set to release this year, but instead will begin filming sometime this summer. The relase date as of now is June 26th 2020, so a year from now. That seems pretty far off but there is some great news. For example both Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer will be back to reprise their roles as Maverick and Iceman.

The only issue I have is after so many years is this movie necessary and does anyone even really care? The original released back in 1986, a full 32 years ago. On the bright side a lot of people will join the Air Force despite them being Navy pilots which yes, is a thing that reportedly happened. Either way, it should be interesting. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Gears Of War Movie Set in Alternate Reality

As reported by Gamesradar it turns out the Gears of War movie will be be set in an alternate reality. According to Rod Fergusson while writing the movie they new the movie would have to be a good movie first, and a Gears movie second. During the interview he did say the movie will be on Sera and certain characters would be present, so I don’t think we will be missing some of the fan favorites. I also don’t doubt we will get to see tons of Locust get mowed down. The movie might be pretty far off tho, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

New Hunger Games Book Due Out in 2020

Back in 2008 the first hunger games book released, and the movie wasn’t far behind in 2012. It seemed like the world loved it, tho I did notice the later movies kind of fell off in my area. Now in 2020 there will be a new book, a prequel. Lionsgate is also eyeing a movie adaptation according to Joe Drake, chairman of Lionsgate. The book is as of yet untitled but it is set to release in May of 2020. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Shazam 2,Zachary Levi Expects to Film in 2020

During an interview with AP News he talked about how Shazam made his career bigger and this was a bigger platform. He also said that he expects there to be a quick turnaround for the next movie and it to start filming around mid 2020.

This honestly would not surprise me as despite only bringing in 363 million worldwide it only had a production cost of 100 million making it pretty profitable all things considered. This all but guarantees a second one and they would want it pretty quick. Either way, it will be interesting to see. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Murder Mystery (2019)

Murder Mystery is the new Adam Sandler movie from Happy Madison Productions starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. They play a married couple, her a hair dresser, him a cop trying to become a detective, tho she has been lied to and thinks he already is one.

After 15 years, they are finally going on their European honeymoon. On the plane they meet Charles Cavendish (Luke Evans) the nephew of a billionare going through a rough break up that invites them on the family yacht, just to piss off his uncle that married his fiancee.

The movie is getting mixed reviews, critics don’t seem to enjoy it but viewers seem to be enjoying it. I fall into the I enjoyed it category. Ms. Aniston and Mr. Sandler have great chemistry and perform well together and the story is well put together and easy to understand but has just enough twist and turns to be fun.

My only real issue with the story is there is nothing new here either, Murder Mystery is very cliche and by the book, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing I just would have liked a bit more to it. That being said if you like mystery movies this one is solid. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
