Nintendo's 'Tomodachi Life' trailer is totally weird (in a good way)

Gaming News - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 7:32am

Surprising game fans with confirmation that the "Tomodachi" series would venture outside of Japan for the first time with a June 6 release of "Tomodachi Collection," Nintendo's video announcement featured digital versions of several high-ranking executives. Suited and booted as they might normally be, Nintendo's chiefs instead found themselves playing with kittens, taking baths, chanting to television cameras and rocking out in front of thousands within the confines of "Tomodachi Life." Well rated by Japanese magazine Famitsu with a 36/40 score upon its April 2013 release, "Tomodachi Life" takes its name from the Japanese word for "friend." It promises "a crazy world where Mii characters of you, your friends, your favorite characters and anyone else you can imagine all live together: sometimes in harmony, sometimes not," explained Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata during a special Nintendo Direct broadcast.

Roland Emmerich finds lead actor for 'Stonewall'

Movie News Headines - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 6:49am

Jeremy Irvine, the young British actor whose breakthrough came via Steven Spielberg's "War Horse," will headline "Stonewall," the next film from Roland Emmerich, Deadline.com indicates. The German filmmaker, who is accustomed to helming big-budget films full of special effects, will shift gears to direct "Stonewall." The feature will depict one young man's political awakening set against the backdrop of one of the most significant events in gay rights history. The Stonewall Inn, a mafia-owned bar in Greenwich Village, catered to gays and lesbians and was popular with the most marginalized members of the gay community, including transgendered people and male prostitutes. The Stonewall riots came to be seen as a touchstone of the early gay rights movement in the US and beyond.
