  9. Law enforcement officers in Denmark have arrested six people on suspicion of being involved with defunct Danish torrent tracker Asgaard. The suspects have been charged with copyright infringement offenses. There have now been seven arrests in the case which is part of a broader crackdown on torrent sites. Several release groups, meanwhile, are now reconsidering their future. Over the past several months, Danish law enforcement authorities effectively shut down the thriving local torrent tracker scene. It started in September and October 2020 when DanishBits and NordicBits went offline after their alleged operators were caught. The shutdown of these sites was a major blow to the local piracy ecosystem but it didn’t take long before other sites stepped up. Both Asgaard and ShareUniversity opened their doors to new members, resulting in an explosive growth of these sites. The difference in this instance, however, was that the enforcement authorities kept up the pressure. Helped by local anti-piracy group Rights Alliance, the Government’s SØIK’s IP-Task Force swiftly put a target on these growing sites. A few weeks later, both Asgaard and ShareUniversity were offline as well. Not just that, Asgaard itself found itself in the middle of a new investigation, something the site’s operators already feared. In December the tracker’s staff announced that the site would shut down voluntarily. This announcement came after the Rights Alliance warned that, if the site continued, it would suffer the same fate as DanishBits and NordicBits. “The thought of having to risk the doorbell ringing one day for a visit from the police overshadows the coziness of running this project. We will not expose you to that. Or ourselves. We have therefore chosen to close the ASGAARD project,” Asgaard’s staff concluded. This fear turned out to be prophetic. A few days after the planned shutdown was announced, police arrested a 50-year-old man from Middelfart. The man, who was allegedly part of the tracker’s staff, spent Christmas and New Year in prison. And that wasn’t the end of it. SØIK continued its investigation and late last week announced that six more people have been arrested under suspicion of being involved with the Asgaard torrent tracker. The six, who are between the ages of 34 and 53, are described as ‘ringleaders’ of the torrent site. All seven suspects are charged with serious copyright offenses but have been released while the investigation continues. They face potential prison sentences for their alleged involvement. Michael Lichtenstein, Deputy Director of SØIK’s special IPR group, is pleased with the work of his team and sends a stark warning to people who are considering setting up a new torrent tracker. “It is very satisfying that, on the basis of a very effective effort, we have arrested the people we believe are the responsible perpetrators so that we can hold them accountable,” Lichtenstein notes. “We hope that with the arrests and imprisonment we have sent the clear signal to the Danish pirate users that SØIK’s special IPR unit is determined to target Danish services and hold both backers and users to account – no one is protected.” The arrests are also a success for Rights Alliance, which reported Asgaard to the authorities last October. Maria Fredenslund, the anti-piracy group’s Director, stresses that long prison sentences await those who cross their path. “The penalty for this type of crime is six years in prison, and the IP task force in SØIK has shown with the latest action against the Asgaard backers that no one can feel safe. They are extremely well equipped to investigate and respond quickly and effectively to this type of case,” she says. Rights Alliance previously declared victory in its war on local torrent sites and noticed that the recent efforts have affected the broader supply chain as well. For example, the release group “Xor06” reportedly threw in the towel and the same applies to “QUARK”. “We’re closing and shutting down QUARK now.. this is getting too close,” the group wrote on another Nordic torrent tracker just a few days ago.

  10. Nicole Kidman is in talks to star in the upcoming Lucille Ball biopic titled Being the Ricardos. Ball is best known for her sitcom I Love Lucy. I Love Lucy first aired on CBS in 1951 and ran for six seasons. The quirky comedy follows Lucy's life in New York City married to bandleader Desi Arnaz. As Desi tries to make it big, Lucy always manages to go on some outlandish adventure and get herself in trouble. The series was inspired by Lucy and Desi's real-life marriage. Even though the show came out 70 years ago, it is still one of the most beloved comedies of all time. Deadline confirms that Kidman is in talks to star in Being the Ricardos. Cate Blanchett was initially attached to the role during the project's early stages of development. At that point, the project was titled Lucy and Desi. Javier Bardem is eyed to play Kidman's counterpart, Desi Arnaz. Neither actor has closed deals on the roles yet, but both Kidman and Bardem are reportedly enthusiastic about the project. Renowned writer Aaron Sorkin penned the screenplay and recently signed on to direct the film as well. The Amazon Studios project will be produced by Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch. As a pick to play Lucille Ball, Kidman may stike some as an odd choice since the actress isn't particularly well known for her comedic roles. Being the Ricardos isn't strictly a comedy, though, and the movie is sure to feature the couple's behind the scenes drama as well as their on-screen antic. In that case, Kidman should be able to deftly portray both the public and private life of Lucy. Being the Ricardos will not only focus on Lucy and Desi's life as a married couple, but what it was like for them behind-the-scenes of I Love Lucy and how working together impacted their marriage. The film takes place over one production week starting from the Monday table read up until the Friday live performance. During the film, the couple will endure high-stakes crises that could end their careers and marriage.
  11. A market research firm looking into the situation surrounding the release of Cyberpunk 2077 has concluded that publisher CD Projekt could be a target for a big-money acquisition. This is due to the poor launch state of the highly anticipated open-world game, particularly on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While the game ran reasonably well on home computers, the console port is plagued with various issues, to the point where Sony delisted the game from their console's digital storefront. The publisher has had to promise refunds to large swathes of its entire customer base and realign their priorities towards immediate bug fixes rather than working on the follow-up DLC and future projects. All of this has sharply dropped the company's stock prices, both in terms of perception by the general audience and the literal stock price. This makes it one of several targets for a buyout, a trend that has been increasing in the gaming industry as of late. New players with deep pockets like Google and Amazon are joining the fray and looking for established companies to round out their portfolios. Meanwhile, Xbox has purchased Bethesda parent company ZeniMax in a move that shows how much it's willing to invest to ensure its all-encompassing Game Pass subscription service remains competitive. Looking into the unfortunate state of Cyberpunk 2077 at launch, VGC has reported on findings from market research firm DFC Intelligence. They conclude in their analysis that a publisher with wider reach and more public relations knowledge could have avoided many of the issues of CD Projekt Red's poor showing. They suggest that releasing just the PC version last year or even letting gamers know the initial state of the console version would have avoided a lot of the issues that the company now faces. One of those consequences is that publisher CD Projekt is now in a publicly vulnerable position that could attract a buyout from a larger corporation, which DFC Intelligence sees as a very possible outcome. screenshot-2021.01.18-03_10_13.jpg DFC Intelligence suggests that while the company is still similar in size to ZeniMax or Ubisoft, those types of deals are on the table for the highest bidders. It would be a high-risk move that could pay off with high reward for the right buyer, especially considering how valuable the Witcher and Cyberpunk franchises could be in the future. The Witcher, in particular, could be a great pickup, as it has an audience outside of gaming thanks to its Netflix show. On top of that, a new game in the series would produce Cyberpunk levels of hype if handled correctly. Beyond just games like Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt also has several other business ventures, including PC storefront GOG. Any potential acquisitions would have to take on those responsibilities as well or risk a public backlash by shutting them down. That complication could save the Polish team from an unfavorable pairing, but it's also possible that the game development arm could be spun off in some way if the right buyer came along. Money talks in any industry, and with companies like Google and Amazon fishing for intellectual property, no company is truly off the market. Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PS4 (retail-only), Xbox One, Stadia, and PC, and it will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2021.
  12. PC players who missed out on Remedy's latest exploration of the supernatural are in luck; on January 21, Control will become available on Xbox Game Pass for PC. The Remedy title is no stranger to Game Pass, as Microsoft added Control to the console version just last month. Its addition was accompanied by the likes of GreedFall and Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Undoubtedly, the value of Xbox Game Pass continues to grow. For just $10 per month, members can gain access to a massive library of games filled with newer and older releases. One major benefit is the ability to play first-party Xbox titles for no extra cost, but Game Pass is additionally worthwhile for its collection of lesser-known titles that may have previously flown under the radar, as well as the whole of EA Play. And with a whole host of Final Fantasy games joining its growing line-up, Game Pass' value won't soon subside. On January, Control will join the Xbox Game Pass line-up for PC. One of Xbox's official Twitter pages shared the news in a post earlier today, complete with a video acknowledging all of the objects protagonist Jesse Faden can take control of in-game. Control is a big get for the service on both consoles and PC. Players step into the shoes of Jesse, a young woman who enters a secret Federal building, the Oldest House, in search of answers about her brother's whereabouts. What she finds upon her arrival is confirmation of the supernatural, which opens the door to countless other mysteries. Soon, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S players will have reason to dive back into the experience, courtesy of Control Ultimate Edition's next-gen upgrade that goes live on February 2. A boxed version of Control Ultimate Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S is slated to hit stores one month later on March 2. Microsoft has quite the year planned for Xbox Game Pass, too. Of course, games will continuously be added to the service, but it's also set to expand in other ways. For one, Electronic Arts' EA Play subscription will become a part of the Xbox Game Pass family on PC on an unspecified date this year. It presently remains to be seen when new details on this matter will surface, though. Plus, cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is making its way to iOS and PC sometime this year, as well. Control is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on March 2, 2020.
  13. Some of the best horror movies are based on fairy tales and folklore. The realm of fairy tales has always had a dark, murkier undercurrent, as exemplified by the original collection by The Brothers Grimm, German siblings responsible for the creation of 19th-century fairy tales rife with violence, now-problematic discourse, and gore. These tales, in conjunction with ancient myths and folklore, have emerged as compelling horror material in modern times, as evidenced by the popularity of movies such as Ari Aster’s Midsommar, which is rooted in Scandinavian neopaganism. Folk horror is, by no means, a brand-new emergence, as the first film that dealt with such themes was 1922’s Hӓxan, which charted the historical roots of and superstition surrounding witchcraft while being partly based on the Malleus Maleficarum. With the critical acclaim of 1973's The Wicker Man, a fleshed-out genre of folk horror seemed to be on the rise, evoking sentiments of unease with regard to lush, idyllic landscapes that appeared to be infused with a primordial surge of power that stretched back to many a millennium. Horror, if crafted well, can work almost in any setting. However, there is something otherworldly about vast, untapped natural territories that used to be sites of traditional rituals and fictional inspiration. Horror revolving around fairy tales and folklore are almost always characterized by a rural setting, and the themes of inherent powerlessness of the human civilization when faced with a greater, older source of terror. The following films stand out in the genre for a number of reasons, be it the treatment of mythical material or the electrifying infusion of the ancient with the postmodern. Picnic At Hanging Rock Based on Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel of the same name, Picnic at Hanging Rock played a seminal role in garnering attention for the then-emerging Australian New Wave as it was a fresh take on horror that hinged upon narrative ambiguity. Directed by Peter Weir, Picnic at Hanging Rock is set in the year 1900 amid a secluded countryside that seems all too surreal. The film opens with a group of schoolgirls taking a trip to Hanging Rock, which is positioned as a mythical being in its own right, with its huge, ancient rock formations and steep, dangerous slopes. This innocent trip to the wilderness culminates in the disappearance of three girls, and a series of unsettling events that seem to have no explanation, scientific or otherwise. While the exact nature of the source of horror in the film and the reason behind the disappearance of the girls is never spelled out, Picnic at Hanging Rock was inspired by the folk traditions surrounding the real location, which was a site for sacred ceremonies and initiations of native tribes until the mid-1800s, and later became subject to lore about evil spirits and morbid hauntings, heightened by the actual disappearance of two local girls in the area. Irrespective of the true nature of its narrative inspiration, Picnic at Hanging Rock remains an eerie cinematic experience, with its lush, vibrant hues, angelic-white lace dresses, and the utter unknowability of realms that exist in parallel to the corporeal one. Apart from this, the score by Gheorghe Zamfir lends an especially haunting aura to the film’s already tense atmosphere, evoking connections to the Greek God Pan, who is deemed as the overseer of the rustic and the wild, sometimes known to evoke an acute sense of panic in vast, desolate spaces. Pan’s Labyrinth A dark fantasy film through and through, Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth takes place in 1944 Spain, just a few years after the Spanish Civil War. Del Toro entwines the real with the mythical, as the narrative focuses on a child’s imaginary interactions with an abandoned labyrinth and a mysterious, faun-like creature as an escape from the bleakness of her reality. Pan’s Labyrinth is directly influenced by fairy tales as it assumes the function of a parable, and is considered a spiritual successor to del Toro’s 2001 The Devil’s Backbone. The film’s imagery is steeped in ancient folklore from the get-go, as the titular character, Ofelia, comes across a stick insect that resembles a fairy, who leads her towards a stone labyrinth. While Pan's Labyrinth's figure of the faun originally derived from Roman mythology, it eventually evolved, and could today purportedly be a part of the fae forest folk. Apart from this, the film also incorporates the use of traditional herbs connected to practical and magical healing, such as when Ofelia is asked to feed blood to a mandrake root in order to ease her ailing mother’s pain. Other influences that shaped this surrealist fantasy are varying pieces of literature on the pagan deity Pan, including Arthur Machen’s The Great God Pan and Algernon Blackwood’s Pan’s Garden. It is also interesting to note that the Pale Man featured in Ofelia’s second task is a rendition of the mythological creature from the Japanese legend of the Tenome. Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders Directed by Jaromil Jireš, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is a 1970 Czechoslovak surrealist horror that chronicles a young girl’s transition to puberty via the lens of a dream-like fairy tale, one that is marked by grisly violence and lurid sexuality. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders hinges upon visual poetry as opposed to an overtly comprehensible plot, while it weaves the grimmest tropes of European folklore, including vampiric entities and the ritual practice of black magic, to dramatize Valerie’s initiation into the dreary world of adulthood. A timeless coming-of-age story, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders dives deep into the uncomfortable end of womanhood, a sentiment that is heightened with the aid of soundscapes featuring folk melodies and choral hymns. After progressing through her dream which essentially takes on the shape of shifting nightmares, Valerie strolls past a riverside bacchanalia - another folkloric element - which was a Greco-Roman festive tradition held to honor the ecstatic aspect of nature and the God of wine, fertility, and ritual madness, Dionysus. The Wicker Man Robin Hardy’s British folk horror, The Wicker Man, centers on the isolated yet idyllic island of Summerisle, wherein Police Sergeant Neil Howie arrives in search of a missing girl, Rowan. A devout Christian, Howie is appalled by the strange customs of the island folk, who have abandoned Christianity in favor of a form of Celtic paganism. The Wicker Man, much like Aster's Midsommar, entwines several threads of folk horror, starting with medical superstitions of placing toads inside one’s mouth to cure a sore throat, along with references to the Celtic deity the Green Man, who is traditionally associated with spring and rebirth. The titular image of the wicker man also has pagan roots, as this figure was reportedly used by the ancient Druids for sacrificial burning. The wicker man has also been referenced numerous times in modern neopagan-themed ceremonies, although today it is solely a symbolic representation without an actual sacrifice. Apart from this, The Wicker Man also hints at obscure fertility rituals, Arthurian myths, and pagan harvest cycles steeped in archetypical symbolism. The brilliance of The Wicker Man lies in the fact Summerisle’s way of life is not necessarily posited as negative or oppressive, rather as a complex religion that is open in contrast to Howie’s staunch intolerance, for which he ends up paying the ultimate price. November A folk tale enmeshed in both the beautiful and the bizarre, Rainer Sarnet’s November is an Estonian love story set in a 19th-century village in which the impoverished inhabitants thrive on thievery, greed, and ritualistic pagan rites. Combining magic, dark humor, and romance, November follows a young farm girl named Liina, who is absolutely smitten by Hans, a local village boy who is in turn enamored by a young Baronness. The film has narratorial roots in Estonian and Euro-Christian mythology, and the plot revolves heavily around mythical creatures known as kratts, featured heavily in Estonian folklore. Kratts were formed with hay and used for menial labor until the devil arrived and infused the creatures with life, in exchange for three drops of blood. In November, this mythical trope is upturned in a sly manner, wherein Hans attempts to fool the devil by offering three blackcurrants instead. Rainer incorporates superstitions, pagan folk symbolism, and bedtime stories, such as when the villagers spit out Communion wafers for the purpose of using them as hunting bullets, convinced that animals could not possibly reject being shot by the body of Christ. While humorous at first glance, these beliefs are a metaphor for hunger-driven desperation, wherein supernatural phenomena become acceptable as long as it serves the interests of the village folk. Intoxicating and discordant all at once, November is a visual and cinematic feast, shot in monochrome and moonlit frames, while the darkness lingers menacingly around the edges of a uniquely-crafted folk horror.
  14. John Wick's Ian McShane, who plays John Wick's enemy in the franchise, has hinted that John Wick 4 may be entering production sometime this year. The first John Wick starring Keanu Reeves came out in 2014 and helped spawn two successful sequels. The first film grossed $86 million worldwide on a $20 million production budget, with each following installment being a bigger hit than the last. The latest film in the franchise, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, was said to potentially be the end of the John Wick trilogy. John Wick 3 ends with an intense fight to protect The Continental in which Manager Winston, played by McShane, shoots John Wick. However, the last moments of the film reveal Wick isn't dead. He's taken to the Bowery King and is presented an opportunity for revenge, allowing for a rather seamless transition for John Wick 4. Sadly, it became difficult to get going on John Wick 4 as the COVID-19 pandemic caused a wave of production shutdowns in the U.S. The film was originally given a release date of May 21, 2021, but Reeves' involvement in both John Wick 4 and The Matrix 4 created difficulty for the film's shared release date. John Wick 4 is now slated to release on May 27, 2022. After a year of delays and little information on the franchise, McShane has shared with Collider that the studio may be gearing up for production on John Wick 4 at some point in 2021. McShane's full quote can be read below: "Keanu [Reeves] and I exchanged New Year's greetings and said, "Hope to see you this year." I know the script is written, and they're hoping to do it this year. I know they announced they were gonna do [John Wick 4] and [John Wick 5] together, but who knows. The studios announce all sorts of things. No doubt, at some point this year, we're gonna do John Wick 4." screenshot-2021.01.18-03_03_00.jpg Lionsgate did officially announce that John Wick 5 was going to shoot back to back with John Wick 4 as soon as Keanu Reaves becomes available in early 2021. As the film industry tries to bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic, it makes sense that the studio would rely on an established franchise film with high box office earnings like John Wick to help recover moving forward. McShane commented on the franchise's continually growing success stating, "They got such a good cast for the first one and it was a very good script. I thought the second one wasn't quite as good, but people by then loved it and went with it. I think the third one was really terrific, so it lived up to it. I always thought it had legs because of Keanu, a dead wife, a dog, a gun, and a great car. It had all the elements, so how can you fail?" In some ways, it's not surprising that the film will begin shooting this year based on its new slated release in May of 2022, but it's comforting to get an insight on the production from McShane himself. Based on the growing success of the franchise, it's easy to assume that John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 will be well received and continue the legacy of John Wick in an entertaining continuation. Although fans are still unsure exactly when and where production for John Wick 4 is set to start, it's great to hear that things will be moving forward within the year and that the cast is still enthusiastic for their adventures in the John Wick franchise. John Wick: Chapter 4 (2022) Release Date: May 27, 2022
  15. Hasbro is in the process of developing a TV series based on the fantasy tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons and they've tapped the creator and writer of the action-heavy John Wick franchise, Derek Kolstad, to write and pitch the show. Dungeons & Dragons has been around since 1974, but it's experienced something of a renaissance lately, with sales rising 20% from 2019 to 2020. Between portrayals in popular shows like Stranger Things and the success of live stream series like Critical Role, general awareness of and interest in the classic game is rising. Dungeons & Dragons, known colloquially to fans as D&D, is a fairly structured but still open-ended game that allows its players to act out a wide variety of fantasy scenarios. Involving magic, combat, and social interactions, players go through a "campaign" - a series of story-based adventures - with little to no limitations aside from the players' imagination. Campaigns are led by Dungeon Masters, who oversee the game and guide players through the story. THR reports Hasbro's entertainment studio, eOne, wants to make a live-action Dungeons & Dragons TV show, and they've hired Kolstad to pitch and write it. Since it's still in such an early phase of development, there are no plot or cast details available. Similarly, the series does not appear to have been sold to a network yet. While there haven't been many updates as to what exactly the story will be - considering the freshness of the news - Kolstad's series won't be the only upcoming release based on the game. eOne is also making a live-action movie based on the franchise reportedly starring Chris Pine, and expected to be out for release in 2022. Aside from the TV series and movie, eOne is reportedly exploring even more filmed projects based on D&D, though the company hasn't released any information on them yet. While the upcoming TV series and film are undoubtedly exciting for some, Dungeons & Dragons doesn't have a great track record when it comes to filmed interpretations of the game. There was a poorly received live-action film trilogy in the early 2000s and an animated series that had a lukewarm reception in the 1980s. The number of D&D adaptations eOne has in the works could easily lead to oversaturation, too. But the TV series does have at least one strong point in its favor: Kolstad. Kolstad's John Wick movies are known for not only their intense action sequences but also heartbreaking moments and impressive box office numbers. Despite the movies being more grounded in reality than the fantasy game is, Kolstad's ability to successfully write a hero with heart barreling through an action-packed world makes him an ideal choice for a D&D-centric story. While the Dungeons & Dragons TV series is still in very early development, hiring Kolstad is definitely a good sign.
