Furiosa Has A 15-Minute Action Scene That Took 78 Days To Shoot
Furiosa Has A 15-Minute Action Scene That Took 78 Days To ShootIn 2015, George Miller proved that he was still one of the best action directors in the industry with his jaw-dropping sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road. And in the upcoming prequel, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, Miller may even be able to top his work on Fury Road. While speaking to Total Film Magazine , Miller's producing partner Doug Mitchell spoke about an action sequence that required almost 200 stunt men and women working on it daily for nearly three months. "[Furiosa] has one 15-minute sequence which took us 78 days to shoot," said Mitchell, who also noted that the scene in question was referred to as "Stairway to Nowhere" on set, and that it's a pivotal scene for the title character, who will be portrayed by Anya Taylor-Joy in the film. Additionally, Taylor-Joy shed some light on why the sequence is so important for her character. "George and I would have these big conversations about why this particular set-piece was so long," said Taylor-Joy. "It's because you see an accumulation of skills over the course of a battle, and that's very important for understanding how resourceful Furiosa is, but also her grit. It's the longest sequence any of us have ever shot. On the day we finished, everybody got a 'Stairway To Nowhere' wine!" Thor actor Chris Hemsworth co-stars in Furiosa as Warlord Dementus, the man who kidnaps the title character and steals her away from her family. The film serves as an origin story for Furiosa and reveals how she became the hardened warrior who was portrayed by Charlize Theron in Fury Road. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will hit theaters on Friday, May 15.

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask Part 12 | Super Replay
The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask Part 12 | Super Replay After The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time reinvented the series in 3D and became its new gold standard, Nintendo followed up with a surreal sequel in Majora's Mask. Set two months after the events of Ocarina, Link finds himself transported to an alternate version of Hyrule called Termina and must prevent a very angry moon from crashing into the Earth over the course of three constantly repeating days.

Leonardo DiCaprio Could Have Been Lex Luthor In Superman
Leonardo DiCaprio Could Have Been Lex Luthor In SupermanDirector Zack Snyder, known for his work on the now-defunct DC Extended Universe (DCEU), revealed in an interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast that he had discussions with Leonardo DiCaprio about portraying the iconic villain Lex Luthor. Snyder disclosed that DiCaprio, who is on the record as having a rule against starring in superhero movies, engaged in thoughtful conversations about the role but ultimately opted to not pursue it. "Leonardo DiCaprio, I talked to him about it," Snyder said. "I think DiCaprio, he had a lot of great ideas actually just in the meeting. I think in the end he was like 'I don't know,' but he was really smart about the material and really smart about the character." Leonardo DiCaprio nearly played Lex Luthor AND contributed a huge idea that landed in JUSTICE LEAGUE. Watch my full chat with Zack Snyder here: https://t.co/QlSzZlgwgz pic.twitter.com/VsPvpBHv5H — Josh Horowitz (@joshuahorowitz) April 18, 2024 In 2022, Timothée Chalamet relayed to British Vogue that DiCaprio imparted some crucial advice for career longevity: "No hard drugs and no superhero movies." But, as Snyder explains in this interview, DiCaprio had given Snyder's film some serious thought, even proposing ideas. "I think he was the one that mentioned to me this idea about Superman fighting the Justice League at some point," Snyder said. "And I was like 'That sounds cool.'" The role instead went to Jesse Eisenberg, and Lex Luthor is set to return to the big screen in DC co-chairman James Gunn's Superman reboot, with Nicholas Hoult taking on the role . Filming began in March, and there won't be a trailer until 2025. The movie is set to come to theaters in July 2025. Snyder debuts his latest film, Rebel Moon--Part Two: The Scargiver , on Friday, April 19.

Lego Optimus Prime Transformers Kit Discounted To Best Price Yet At Amazon
Lego Optimus Prime Transformers Kit Discounted To Best Price Yet At AmazonTransformers fans can pick up Lego Optimus Prime for 20% off at Amazon . The deal drops the price back to what we saw during Black Friday and on another occasion earlier this year. If you missed out on these deals in the past, Lego Optimus Prime has never been sold for less than its current $144 price. We wouldn't be surprised to see this offer sell out quickly once again. Amazon doesn't list an end date for the deal either, so it could disappear at any time. Lego Optimus Prime is comprised of 1,508 pieces and, much like other large-scale Lego sets, is recommended for adults and experienced builders. See at Amazon Optimus is ready to roll out. What sets this particular Lego set apart from many other licensed kits of this size is that it has a level of interactivity built into it. Though you won't be pulling off dynamic poses, you will be able to gently adjust the limbs of Optimus, equip him with his trademark ion blaster, and you can even replace his hand with his legendary Energon-Axe. The real magic here is that Optimus can transform into his signature truck mode, easily shifting from Autobot commander to a big rig that's ready to roll out. To get to that point is the fun part though, and with 10 bags filled with hundreds of bricks, it'll take you just over three hours to build everyone's favorite Cybertronian.

XDefiant now slated for summer release—if you choose to believe it
XDefiant now slated for summer release—if you choose to believe it Delays have plagued Ubisoft's Call of Duty rival XDefiant , but there may finally be light at the end of the tunnel. The FPS title is now slated for a summer release—should you choose to believe the game will actually ever come out. XDefiant was first scheduled to release in the summer of 2023 but missed that window due to issues with the in-game party system, and the need to improve the game's netcode. It was then penciled in to drop before the end of March 2024 , but the developers stated that "some improvements" were still required and that the deadline wouldn't be met either. Now, according to XDefiant Alerts on X, formerly Twitter, the game is now looking at "an expected release date of this summer," should an upcoming test session go well. https://twitter.com/XDefiantAlerts/status/1779973714261786945 The test will take place on Friday, April 19, and will last just 12 hours. Should that go well, the test will be extended until Sunday, with the summer release date set to be confirmed following the end of the session. Truthfully, even with the test set for this weekend, I'm finding it hard to have any faith that we'll see the game this summer. It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since the last Open Session playtest back in June 2023, and we're still waiting for an official release date. It feels like XDefiant has missed its big chance, with the positive release of Modern Warfare 3 hurting the game badly. It's hard to be excited about a Call of Duty rival if CoD has a good game out. Between all that, and reports that the development of the game has been hampered by "unnecessary changes" demanded by Ubisoft, it's hard even to believe we'll get our hands on the game this year. For Ubisoft's sake, they'll need to hope this week's playtest goes well. The post XDefiant now slated for summer release—if you choose to believe it appeared first on Destructoid .

Fortnite's Next Star Wars Crossover Will Span Lego, Festival, and Battle Royale Modes
Fortnite's Next Star Wars Crossover Will Span Lego, Festival, and Battle Royale Modes Despite currently being in the midst of a crossover event with Avatar: The Last Airbender , Fortnite is teasing an upcoming event with a returning collaborator: Star Wars. The details have yet to be disclosed, but attentive fans of the science fiction juggernaut will notice something about the start date right away. The event is set to take place on Friday, May 3. The following day, May 4th, is known to many as Star Wars Day. We have a good feeling about this...Star Wars is returning to #Fortnite . pic.twitter.com/6MCkDkolNb — Star Wars (@starwars) April 15, 2024 The most newsworthy piece of info here, however, is the fact that the teaser indicates collaborations across several of Fortnite's new modes. This includes the classic battle Royale mode, the survival/crafting Lego mode, and the rhythm Festival mode, though Rocket Racing was notably excluded. Crossovers between Fortnite and other IPs usually just include cosmetic bundles, but this seems to imply that it will provide content for three different areas of the game. The current Elements event pass technically includes a Lego variant skin as well as a guitar for Festival mode, so this Star Wars event could be as simple as that, but it's not unreasonable to speculate that Star Wars is a big enough property to warrant a larger scale crossover event. That said, this is just speculation. Previous Star Wars crossovers included a Darth Vader boss battle, lightsabers, blasters, and force abilities, as well as a huge roster of skins spanning the movies and shows. Most recently, Ahsoka joined the fray as a part of the Chapter 4 Season 4 battle pass.  If you're interested in more Star Wars video games, you're in luck – we just launched our latest cover story , which features an exclusive look at Star Wars Outlaws. We've also got a hands-on preview , a video interview with the developers , and an entire hub devoted to this month's coverage of the game . What are you hoping to see from the upcoming Fortnite x Star Wars crossover? Let us know in the comments!
