To kick off Gamescom 2019 last night Geoff Keighley, the man behind the yearly Game Awards, hosted an opening night showcase.
Closing out this showcase was the great Hideo Kojima, who was on hand to share some new trailers for Death Stranding, his highly anticipated first non-Metal Gear game as director since 1994’s Policenauts—not counting the P.T. demo for the Silent Hill game we’ll never get to play, sadly. Kojima shared three new character trailers for the game, found below, one of which includes new peeks at gameplay footage.
Gamers have been excited about the latest game from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, titled Death Stranding, for three years now. But trailers and gameplay peeks we’ve seen over those three years, while awesome and intriguing, have left us clueless as to what the hell is actually going on in the game.
Thankfully a new trailer has been released, and I can absolutely confirm that I still have not a freakin’ clue what’s going on. But damn, it is pretty awesome. In fact, if I get a chance to review the game it might just say “Damn, that was awesome” and leave it at that.
The trailer shows off more of the game, including some new gameplay action, and introduces some new cast including a second film director making an appearance. It also reveals something Kojima fans have been eagerly awaiting for a long time: a release date. You can find more info and check out the trailer below.
A couple of years back we found out that Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Drive, Only God Forgives, The Neon Demon, and Pusher trilogy director Nicolas Winding Refn and six-time Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Ed Brubaker had a TV series titled Too Old to Die Young coming to Amazon’s Prime Video.
Now the first trailer has been released for the series, which is a crime thriller dealing with the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles. It explores “various characters’ existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurais in the city of angels.”
You can find more info on Too Old to Die Young and check out the first trailer below.
Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, known for making movies like the Pusher trilogy, Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Drive, Only God Forgives, and most recently The Neon Demon, has found a home for his TV series Too Old to Die Young.
Amazon has made a straight to series order for the show, with 10 episodes on the way to start. Refn will take on writing, directing, and producing duties. But he will have a little help that will be of great interest to comic book readers. Six time Eisner Award winning comics writer Ed Brubaker will be co-writing the series with Refn, and also serves as an executive producer. It’s the second project of Refn’s to land at Amazon, after they acquired the distribution rights for Neon Demon here in the States.
Nicolas Winding Refn‘s next project has been announced. He’ll be teaming up with James Bond veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre) for a Tokyo-set action thriller.
Normally when such a project is announced it gets a very brief synopsis that gives us a slight idea of what to expect. But the plot synopsis for Refn’s latest project is anything but, in fact, it is very detailed. Check it out below.
