Details Revealed About Avatar 2


The AVATAR Sequels
James Cameron has been promising a series of Avatar sequels for roughly a decade, and audiences are still waiting.

We've already heard quite a few tidbits about what the upcoming films will entail — and we've rounded up all the rumors and spoilers right here.

James Cameron clearly wasn't interested in churning out another Avatar sequel just for the sake of it. Since 2010, he's been dropping hints about what the future of the franchise involves — and it's an increasingly ungainly vision that includes several movie sequels, novels, and much more. Details are often frustratingly vague — heck, even the release dates keep changing.

In fact, trying to pin down exactly when we'll get to see Avatar 2 and its many sequels is something of a fool's errand. Back in 2010, Cameron said the next two films would be coming out in December 2014 and December 2015, respectively. But when January 2015 rolled around with no sign of Avatar 2, he said the sequels had been delayed… but they'd be coming out in 2017 — probably. Later in 2015, Cameron also hinted that there'd be an Avatar 5.

He also claimed that Christmastime would officially be Avatar-time… because Avatar 2 would be coming out on Christmas 2018. Of course, that didn't happen. Then, in April 2017, the timeline shifted again — and Cameron announced we could expect Avatar 2 on December 18th, 2020. Is your head spinning yet? Keep watching the video for more details revealed about Avatar 2!

Atelier Ryza - Promotional Trailer!

ATELIER RYZA
Not only will aspiring alchemists find a revamped battle system as they set out on their journey with teenage tomboy Ryza and her mischievous group of friends, but they will also be able to obtain special new gathering locations to explore and share.

Throughout their search for adventure, Ryza and her party will discover exotic new locations – including those they have made themselves. In Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout players can obtain special bottles, which can be combined with other items in the game’s synthesis system to create an abundance of new gathering locations overflowing with raw materials. Depending on which ingredients are used in the synthesis process, the environment can drastically change. For example: Plant Essence can create a fantastical forest area; while a Bomb can create a dangerous volcanic field overflowing with lava. Once the environment is created, a unique four-character password is attached to the area, which can then be shown off and shared with friends or across social media - enabling other gamers to explore the exact same area.

Inhabiting these breathtaking locations are creatures and enemies Ryza and her friends will need to fight. Using a newly revamped Real-Time Tactical Battle system, battles will now progress even while character actions are being chosen. In Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, performing skills, critical attacks, or using abilities outside of the player’s turn through the Quick Actions technique will drain the player’s Action Points. These points are shared between all party members, so it is extremely important to use them strategically in battle to gain the upper hand. As the AP gauge is filled, players will also increase their in-battle level known as Tactics Level. The higher the Tactics Level a party gains, the more powerful attacks they can use; also enabling special combos to be performed.

Throughout battle, party members will also be able to give Action Orders to other members of their party. These orders will ask the player to perform specific actions such as “perform a physical attack.” If the order is followed, the character which gave it will perform a follow-up attack with a powerful skill – and this ability does not consume any AP; allowing players to use them at will to deliver strong blows to help defeat even the most ruthless of enemies.

Start your adventure with Atelier Ryza on October 29, 2019
and experience the game on Nintendo Switch/PC Steam/PS4!

Robert Axelrod Dies at Age 70

ROBERT AXELROD
(May 29, 1949 - September 7, 2019)
[Source: Syfy.com] Robert Axelrod, the actor best known for providing the voices of Lord Zedd and Finster in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has died at the age of 70. The news was confirmed on Twitter via Axelrod's agent, Kelly, who wrote: "It is with great sadness that I must tell you that Robert passed away yesterday. He was a wonderful soul whose charismatic personality lit up a room. He will be greatly missed."

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Axelrod's entertainment career began in the 1970s when he planned on becoming a musician, spending some time as a guitarist before becoming an actor. From that point forward, he cultivated a successful career that spanned several decades and over 150 different characters.

Lord Zedd is, perhaps, the greatest nemesis the Power Rangers have ever faced. Appearing in over 100 episodes of the Mighty Morphin TV show from the 1990s, the villain imprisoned Rita Repulsa after she proved that she couldn't properly defeat the kaiju-fighting do-gooders. He'd eventually go on to marry Rita (a move that Axelrod vocally disliked), having a son—named Thrax—with her, too. Following Rita's exile in a space dumpster, Finster came under the employ of Zedd, creating monsters that were supposed to finish the Rangers once and for all.

"What I loved about Zedd was that the character had the majority of the show’s dialogue, and I like to work! Zedd had integrity, a word whose dictionary definition is 'wholeness,'" he said of his iconic antagonist in a 2016 interview. "He was wholly evil, intent on destroying 'The Power Twerps' and taking over the world … or at least Angel City. I liked the stately quality of the character, similar to Darth Vader. He wasn’t stupid and always bounced back for more. Power Rangers became the most popular show on TV in the past 20 years in its prime, surpassing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in ratings, toy demand, and whatever else is used to rate the popularity of a show. I’m proud to have been part of that."

Avid bookworm and college student Motosu Urano ends up dying in an unforeseen accident. This came right after the news that she would finally be able to work as a librarian like she had always dreamed of.
Where Magic exists to those who could read...
When she regained consciousness, she was reborn as Myne, the five-year-old daughter of a poor soldier. She was in the town of Ehrenfest, a town that existed in a parallel world and had a harsh class system where the magic-wielding nobles ruled supreme. But Myne doesn't really let that get to her. After all, as long as she had books, she didn't really need anything else.
And books are rare, especially to the poor...
However, this world had a very low literacy rate and no real way of printing books, so books were scarce and belonged only to the nobles. They were completely out of reach for the daughter of some poor soldier. But that doesn't stop Myne from wanting to read books, so she makes a decision...
"If there aren't any books, I'll just create some."
Myne might not have energy or money, but she has an endless amount of knowledge from all the books she read in her previous life. Will Myne actually be able to make some books? Myne's adventure to create books starts now.

"Underwater" - Trailer


U  N  D  E  R  W  A  T  E  R
Kristen Stewart has fought vampires, evil queens and government agents, but in the 2020 action-thriller Underwater, the acclaimed actress takes a dunk and goes up against a deep sea monster. The first trailer for Underwater has arrived so dive in and check it out below.

The first thing that the Underwater trailer establishes is that this crew of underwater researchers is going to the very deepest parts of the ocean. The trailer doesn’t let us in on the specifics of their objectives or what they are studying, but all we need to know is that these characters are about as far as a person could possibly be on this planet from the nearest help or hope of rescue. That sets the stage for what’s to follow.

Something shakes the entire subterranean research laboratory and Kristen Stewart’s character Norah sees what has to be the most terrifying thing you could see in a place that deep underwater: a leak. The whole thing begins to flood and when the crew regroups, that’s when we get the first idea of what exactly might be going on. It seems that like the Dwarves in the mines of Moria, they “delved too greedily and dug too deep” and freed or awoke…something.

When the crew has to walk across the bottom of the ocean to survival, they must contend with the deep sea creature or creatures that are now awake. Unlike last year’s The Meg, and despite having comedian T.J. Miller as part of the cast, Underwater seems like it will largely eschew campiness. Instead it goes for a true sci-fi horror vibe and it was hard not to think of Ridley Scott’s original Alien while watching the trailer.

Act like you own the place - PARASITE


P A R A S I T E
In US Theaters October 11.
Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. 

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. 

By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

But don’t worry with this petition, we can raise our voices, we can make Dreamworks put this movie back into production and bring it to theaters so we can make Tim Minchin’s dream come true! And we will really be appreciated if you people spread the word! So please sign this petition, thank you for reading!
