The Oscar-winning Danish movie Another Round is getting an English language version with Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly lined up to play the lead role portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen. The announcement that DiCaprio's Appian Way bought the English language rights caused something of a stir on some circles, with some people saying Mikkelsen should get to play the role because he's already well-known in America through his appearances in the James Bond franchise and on the TV show Hannibal.

A gaming legend was no more. Reports of the genre's death were greatly exaggerated, of course, and in recent years a cottage industry has risen around this most humble breed of shooting games. Pick up a Switch and you could fill its storage with some of the all-time greats - Esp.Ra.De! Gradius 2! Darius Gaiden! - … [Read more...] about R-Type Final 2 review – a scruffy celebration of a genre great

I was obsessed with those books, so the day our local library got dial-up internet, I ran down the street and into the dingy backroom computer lab, and logged the hell on.

Marvel has been heralding a new era for their space-based books with the phrase 'The New Age of Space.' Launched last month with the now-superhero-y Guardians of the Galaxy #13, this new age has a dark turn ahead with the impending event ' The Last Annihilation '. But what exactly is 'The New Age of Space' beyond the catchy name? Who is part of the burgeoning cosmic line, and what's on its way? Writer Al Ewing has quietly become Marvel Comics' de facto cosmic writer, between his Guardians of the Galaxy run, the SWORD series, and co-writing the recent summer event Empyre - especially considering that mysterious coda set in the near future with Hulkling and the Guardians destroyed and Abigail Brand & SWORD telling them they warned them of this fate .
