If you’re wondering how Steven Spielberg will bring the dystopian, VR-heavy world of Ready Player One to life, you can get your first real glimpse in the trailer (technically, a teaser for San Diego Comic Con) above.
The film is based on Ernest Cline’s novel — a book that’s been recommended to me many times as one of the best depictions of virtual reality and gaming in fiction. (Sorry, I still haven’t read it!)
One of the story’s main elements is a virtual world called OASIS. What we see of OASIS in the trailer might not feel terribly visually distinctive, but it certainly looks fun and flashy, throwing together a hodgepodge of pop culture references.
Spielberg discussed the film at Comic Con, where he described it as “the most amazing flash-forward and flashback at the same time about a decade I was very involved in, the ’80s, and a flash-forward to a future that is awaiting all of us, whether we like it or not.”

We get a bunch of new footage from the hotly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s dystopian sci-fi classic. And Harrison Ford’s Deckard says something that’s potentially very important.
Previous glimpses have shown that Ryan Gosling’s Officer K has been tasked with finding Deckard. This new teaser hints at why. Thirty years after the first Blade Runner, the Los Angeles of 2049—or at least parts of it—looks hollowed out and haunted. That can also be said of just about every character with dialogue in this trailer. We’ll find out what they’re looking for when Blade Runner hits theaters on October 6.

I was excited when I heard this was happening but I never imagined it would be this good!
You know that feeling when you reach the last episode of a season and are like, "no no no don't stop now" well that is exactly what happened to me when the 4th episode of CastleVania ended.
Although this is an animated series based of the AAA video game franchise this is definitely not for children under 12!
I mistakenly let my 7 year old son sit and watch this with me, I let the burning at the stake scene pass but then the bar fight with the nut shot, the dislodged eyeball scene was when I decided I was gonna have to wait till the kids were asleep before I could watch this.
The series wisely begins with the CastleVania III Dracula's Curse Story line and accurately retells the story from the game from the year 1476 to the location in Europe Wallachia.
The series art style, animation, writing and voice acting are all so well done it left me craving more!
I've played almost every CastleVania game since the original minus the portable ones so seeing this series turn out as amazingly as it has is equivalent to how great The Street Fighter animated movie turned out back in 1994!

What if you had the power to decide who lives and who dies?
We suggest you obey the rules. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.
