By Jamie Lovett - November 17, 2019 09:36 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker revealed in its first trailer a scene that shocked fans. The scene shows Rey, clad in dark robes, opening up a double-bladed, red lightsaber. Ridley told Adoro Cinema that she enjoyed getting to play Rey's Dark Side, though she wouldn't reveal any details about how that comes to happen. "It's fun to play someone's best version, and then the worst," Daisy Ridley told Adoro Cinema and other journalists in Los Angeles. "It's an amazing thing to do as an actress, but we can't do it often. ... I felt very good. That's the most I can say, unfortunately." Ridley also revealed that filming another scene in the film left the crew visibly moved. “There was a scene that touched me a lot,” Ridley said. “It was our last day shooting in Jordan and the natural light was fading. And it was so exciting. It was just a short scene, we filmed very fast, but the … [Read more...] about Daisy Ridley Says it Was Fun to Play Dark Rey in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

When you get to the end of a hard-fought round in Left 4 Dead 2, you're usually crawling towards a rugged red door. Maybe there's only two of your zombie-slaying quartet left... your health bars stripped away by the horde, your eyesight drained of colour, signalling that one more knockdown equals permadeath. If you're lucky, you push through the pain and make it into the safe room on borrowed time, grab some ammo and shoot the charging zombies to carve a safe route for the rest of your team.That's unless you're playing Funny Doors. Funny Doors dictates that if you get into the safe room before a fellow survivor, in spite of earning those precious 25 points for letting them live to see the next round, you must hammer the E button to open and close the safe room door as they approach, turning the final moments of each round into one hilarious test of strength. Left 4 Dead 2's safe room doors have a serious heft to them, and as such, each swing animation creates a tiny window of … [Read more...] about As Left 4 Dead 2 turns 10, we speak to its creators about the Valve game that won’t die
It’s freezing on the set of Assassin’s Creed. It’s still dark, but that doesn’t stop the veritable hive of activity in the desert hills above the small Spanish town of Almeria. It’s the final day of shooting for one of the film’s 15th century sequences before the crew ups sticks and moves to London’s Pinewood Studios but the atmosphere isn’t one of panic, just of getting the job done. It’s a slick operation and I’m just doing my best not to get in the way as trucks speed into the main set area. Templars with shaved heads and cross tattoos on their necks wander by with very real swords and cups of steaming coffee, while horses are led casually through the madness. The head of the Templar army, Ojeda, wanders imposingly past, huge in armour and with a disconcertingly broken nose and milky left eye. I keep writing the word ‘COLD’ over and over in my notebook to keep my hands busy but I have an eagle eye out for … [Read more...] about On the set of Assassin’s Creed – this is no ordinary video game movie
Double Fine's business development VP, Greg Rice, has left the company just months after the studio was acquired by Microsoft.As spotted by our friends at VGC, Rice confirmed the departure on his personal Twitter account on Friday. He'd been at the studio for almost ten years across a range of positions, but most recently led the company's publishing business, Double Fine Presents. Concerns about Double Fine's publishing arm surfaced shortly after Microsoft's acquisition back in June, with boss Tim Schafer saying at the time: "How Double Fine Presents will evolve is kind of an unknown," and that "from a business sense, I don't know if it structurally makes sense to have a publisher within [another publisher]. It's a complicated issue". Here's something I never thought I'd say, yesterday was my last day at Double Fine. It's been a dream come true working with the world?s greatest human @TimOfLegend and the crew of incredibly talented, caring, wonderful people he?s assembled at Double … [Read more...] about Publishing boss leaves Double Fine just months after Microsoft acquisition
