Men In Black Reboot Stars Look Sharp In First On-Set Image

It’s now more than 20 years since the first movie in the Men in Black series hit theaters, and the inevitable reboot is currently in production. It reunites Thor: Ragnatrok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who take over from Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as the alien hunting agents, and the first behind-the-scenes image has been released.

The picture was posted on Instagram by Hemsworth, and shows him and Thompson on set, wearing the distinctive Men in Black suits. The movie doesn’t arrive until June 2019, so it might be a while before we get to a trailer. So in the meantime, check the image out below:

The new Men in Black movie is not a remake but will take a place in the same universe as the earlier films. It’s directed by F. Gary Gray, who helmed last year’s blockbuster The Fate of the Furious, as well as the hip-hop biopic Straight Outta Compton. The cast also includes Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Rafe Spall (Prometheus), and Emma Thompson, who will reprise her role as Agent O from 2012’s Men in Black 3.

Back in 2016, it was rumored that Sony was looking to reboot Men in Black as a crossover movie with its other comedy franchise, the Jump Street movies. There has been little news about this project since, although Deadline did state earlier this year that it remains in development at the studio.

All three original Men in Black movies were big box-office hits. Although the third movie was not as well received critically as the first two, it still made $624 million at the worldwide box office. In total, the whole series has made more than $1.6 billion.

Daredevil Season 3 Release Date Confirmed In Dark And Bloody Teaser

Daredevil was the first of Netflix’s Marvel shows, and it was important in presenting a darker, more violent side to the Marvel Universe than the one seen on the big screen. The third season arrives on the streaming service next month, and the release date has now been confirmed in a new teaser.

The show will hit Netflix in its entirety on October 12. The typically moody trailer centers around a voiceover from Matt Murdock, with quickly cut footage of Murdock covered in blood, plus a white jacket that presumably belongs to Daredevil’s nemesis Wilson Fisk–aka the Kingpin. The voiceover teases the upcoming confrontation between these two enemies: “There’s only one true way to end evil: to finish it for good. Let the devil out.” Check it out above.

Daredevil stars Charlie Cox in the lead role, with Vincent D’Onofrio returning as Fisk once more. D’Onofrio appeared briefly in Season 2, but the new season looks like it will complete the Daredevil/Kingpin story set up in Season 1. The show also sees the return of Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page and Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson.

In related news, it was reported this week that a host of new Marvel shows are in the works. According to Variety, the studio is developing shows for its upcoming streaming platform that will center around Loki and Scarlet Witch, with Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen potentially reprising their roles from Marvel’s movies. Disney’s streaming service is reportedly due to launch at the end of 2019.

Ubisoft’s Extreme Sports Game Steep Adding X-Games DLC, ’90s Filter

Ubisoft’s extreme sports game Steep is getting even more new content and features, including an expansion themed around the X-Games. The publisher will release a new X Games Pass on October 30 that brings players to the X Games Village in Alaska.

Here, players can take part in all manner of extreme sports challenges that you see on TV including Big Air, SuperPipe, and Slopestyle. Beating the X Games events unlocks new challenges that Ubisoft did not share any details on in its press release. You can watch a teaser trailer for the X-Games DLC in the video embedded above.

In addition to the X-Games content, the X Games Pass comes with a new filter that makes the game look like its from the ’90s. There are also new Rocket Wings challenges coming. The ’90s filter arrives on December 4, with the Rocket Wings content coming on January 10. People who own the X Games Pass get to play one week before everyone else.

The X Games Pass is priced at $15 USD, and it will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A version of Steep was in development for Nintendo Switch, but it has been canceled.

Ubisoft also announced a Steep X Games Gold Edition ($40 USD) that comes with the base game, the X Games Pass, and the previously released Season Pass Year One that comes with a number of in-game extras, as well as Steep credits to purchase more customisation options.

Steep is currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot’s full review, an except of which is available below.

“Steep is a game that’s never really sure what it is, and its vagueness and lack of meaningful rewards causes it to suffer in any comparisons to the likes of SSX,” reviewer Leif Johnson said. “But there’s a quiet thrill to exploring the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, and snowed-in Alpine villages. It’s a strangely attractive approach for all its qualifications, and there’s a constant sense that Ubisoft is channeling George Mallory’s famous response when asked why he wanted to scramble up Mount Everest: ‘Because it’s there.'”
