Half-Life: Alyx VR Game

Fans of the Half-Life series have been dreaming about the fabled Half-Life 3 for many, many years. So long, in fact, that they gave up and switched from dreaming to joking about it years ago.

The game is a full-length virtual reality title, and it’s actually both a prequel and a sequel set after the events of the original game but before the events of Half-Life 2.

Joker Movie

It’s become almost commonplace for a studio to release some sort of follow-up to a film that is both a commercial and critical success. And that may be happening with Warner Bros.’ Joker. The film, which was directed by Todd Phillips, starred Joaquin Phoenix in the title role which was an origins story for the Clown Prince of Crime. The film opened to the tune of $96.2 million in its debut weekend, and has passed the monumental $1 billion mark since then. So it’s only natural that WB would want to keep that momentum going.

According to some trades Phillips has met with Warner Bros. about taking on a sequel. But this particular news bit isn’t so straight forward. There is a conflicting report from another trade which says there are no current talks regarding the potential sequel. More on the reports below.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Rey and Kylo battle

The future of Star Wars is very unclear. There was a point when Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were developing a new trilogy which would have followed the origins of the Jedi. However, creative differences forced them to walk away from the project. This left the franchise in a state of uncertainty because Disney had already scheduled three Star Wars films to be released between 2022 and 2026. And with the Skywalker saga coming to a close with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December, fans are interested in seeing where the mythology goes after it is all said and done.

Though many of us have questions, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy can provide a few answers. Though she will try to remain as vague as possible so as not to drop any spoilers too early, her plans could involve putting together a creative team which includes names like Jon Favreau, Michelle Rejwan, and Dave Filoni. More on the report below.
