Report: Spider-Man Homecoming's Tom Holland To Star In Uncharted Prequel Movie

The Uncharted movie has been in development for years now, with information trickling out here and there. Last we heard, Neil Druckmann confirmed that Naughty Dog hadn't seen the script and didn't know anything about the film, so he couldn't speak to its tone or anything. News today suggests that the movie is one step closer to becoming a reality with the announcement of its leading man. Deadline reports that Tom Holland, who's starring as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming out this July, will play the iconic role of Nathan Drake.  Deadline reveals that the movie has been "redrafted as a prequel" to the video game series, so a younger actor like Holland makes sense for the role. The film is said to take inspiration from a sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, where young Drake meets mentor Sully for the first time. The story centers on Drake in his early days as he grows into a treasure hunter. Shawn Levy, who was behind the camera for the Night at the Museum movies and for a few episodes of Stranger Things, is directing the film.  With this news, it looks like the film has once again been reenvisioned, so here's hoping it's on the right track this time. What do you think of the new direction and casting? Let us know in the comments below! [Source: Deadline]

Far Cry 5 Teaser Reveals Montana Setting

Ubisoft dropped a brief trailer today for Far Cry 5 that shows off where the series is heading next. The answer? America. The teaser is about 30 seconds long and showcases a beautiful view of a river in Hope County, Montana. The majestic view is quickly marred by the sight of a corpse making its way downriver. Shortly after, Ubisoft released a fuller trailer featuring more varied terrain and a prairie church. You can watch here: (Please visit the site to view this media) For more on Far Cry, be sure to check out our review of Far Cry 4.   Our TakeWhile I love the globe-trotting nature of the series, taking place in Montana seems like a bold move. Curious to see how it plays out.

LawBreakers Coming To PS4, Will Retail For $30

When we last checked in with LawBreakers it was this year's Pax East, where we spoke to Boss Key's Cliff Bleszinski about the game and its future. Back then, we asked him about the possibility of a console version of the game, which Bleszinski mentioned would be a challenge due to the fast-paced nature of the game. Since then, the team seems to have overcome that challenge, announcing the game is coming to PlayStation 4. Though Boss Key did not announce a release date for either the PC or PS4 version of the game, it did release a few other details. The business model (another thing we discussed with Bleszinski in our interview) will be simple: $30 for the base game. There will be no season pass or "pay-to-win" purchases, and all post-release content will be free. To coincide with the announcements, Boss Key released a new cinematic trailer for the game, showcasing a few of the characters and their abilities. Finally, Boss Key announced we can expect to see the PS4 version of LawBreakers at this yea's E3. (Please visit the site to view this media)

The Resident Evil Movie Series Is Getting A Reboot

Although the latest Resident Evil live-action film was titled The Final Chapter, it won't be the end of the series' time in theaters. Variety reports that Constantin Film (the company behind the current series) will reboot the franchise with another film, though the company hasn't shared details regarding the film's director, stars, or whether it would fit in with the rest of the series. Previous films were directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starred Mila Jovovich, both of who were hyping up The Final Chapter as just that before its release. This should not be confused with Resident Evil: Vendetta, which is part of the CG film series and more closely ties into timeline of the video games.   Our TakeI think few would argue the live-action films needed a break (to say the least) after one decent movie and a slew of okay-to-terrible ones. Considering the games are moving in a new direction, it makes sense for the films to follow suit.

Niantic Exec Teases Pokémon Go Legendaries For Summer

Although developer Niantic isn't doing as well by Pokémon Go as we'd like them to, they have been maintaining a steady drip of events going. Recently, we've had Water, Egg, and Adventure-themed events for the game. And it looks like this Summer is shaping up to host an even bigger event. At this year's Webby Awards (where Pokémon Go won "Best Mobile Game" and four other awards), Niantic global product marketing lead Archit Bhargava chose his five-word acceptance speech (a custom for the Webbys) carefully: "This summer will be legendary." Considering legendaries like Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are still missing in action, the wording is likely not coincidental. Pokémon Go players may finally have something to look forward to in the coming months. [Source: The 21st Annual Webby Awards via NintendoEverything]   Our TakeI still keep up with Pokémon Go, but more out of a sense of obligation than anything else (I bought a Plus, after all). Who knows what methods players will have to employ to catch legendaries, but hopefully, the update that arrives with them makes playing Pokémon Go worthwhile again.
