New ‘Resident Evil Village’ Trailer Hints at the Story Behind the PS5 Horrors

Published

on

Whoo doggy, I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was watching the announcement trailer for Resident Evil Village, an upcoming 2021 PlayStation 5 video game. For the majority of the trailer’s runtime, it was presented as a new, werewolf-centric title, with no mentioning of its context in the hit zombie survival horror franchise. The end title drop was, simply, Village. And then, thrillingly, the ‘VIII” of the word “Village” was highlighted, alongside the words Resident Evil. And it all clicked into place, causing me to knee-jerk chuck my wallet at my computer. Now, the cat’s out of the bag, and we’ve got a new Resident Evil Village trailer to look at. How does it play?

It plays… interestingly! Feeling more like a first look at an A24 horror film than a traditional video game trailer, this piece outlines the story of our hapless couple, Chris and Mia, and their descent into madness, while Mia insists that the horrors she spins are “just a local tale.” Most surprisingly, the trailer even has a Coraline-feeling stop-motion origin section, a fun bit of stylishness to surprise viewers with. And finally, after the logo drop (which does the same “VIII” trick with not as much effect), we get to see a familiar face from Resident Evil 4 whose voice echoes in my brains anytime I think about buying or selling anything.

Check out the new trailer and official synopsis for Resident Evil Village below. The game is coming to PS5 2021. For more on the PS5, here’s a look at its official specs.

Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.

Bethenny Frankel Is STILL Married To Jason Hoppy?! WTF?!

Published

By

Bethenny Frankel gave fans an update on her relationship status, and the news (or lack thereof) might surprise you.

The former Housewife sat down with former boss Andy Cohen for a virtual chat on Watch What Happens Live Thursday night. In a segment called “a Breathenny of Fresh Air,” Cohen asked Frankel for her take on RHONY, the cast, and her own life, including future plans with boyfriend Paul Bernon. Specifically, he questioned:

“Are you and Paul talking marriage?”

Good question!

However, in response, the 49-year-old dropped a bombshell:

“I’m still married.”

WTF?!?

She’s STILL married to Jason Hoppy?!

We knew that the custody battle over their daughter Bryn was ongoing as recently as last year, but we would have thought the divorce proceedings had been finalized a long time ago. The Bravo spokesman was left just as shocked as we are — in fact, the revelation left him speechless! As he struggled to get his jaw off the floor, Frankel quipped:

“Crickets again! Aaaaaand scene. And we’re back. And we’re walking…”

In disbelief, Cohen replied:

“You’re killing me.”

Frankel and Hoppy split all the way back in 2012 after two years of marriage. Well, two years of actual marriage, since we now know they’ve been continually legally wed for a decade! The couple have been in and out of court for years in regards to their custody agreement, but Hoppy’s lawyers told People back in 2016 that a divorce settlement had been reached, so we’d thought that the marriage was a done deal.

That being said, tension between the former couple only escalated from there, and in 2017 the Skinnygirl CEO was granted a restraining order against her ex after Hoppy allegedly stalked and harassed her. Hoppy later admitted in court that he was a “jerk” and an “a**hole” to the reality star. (Frankel had a different take, reportedly shouting “You tortured me!” during his testimony.)

Frankel hinted that she was still tied to her volatile husband back in August 2019 when she announced her departure from the Housewives franchise. She tweeted:

“To my NY hwives: GO GET EM! I had to go since I’m the only one that is actually married … that’s how crazy this ride is. You are all amazing, beautiful and strong. Spread your wings and fly! Xoxo.”

At the time, this seemed like a low-key reveal that she’d tied the knot with Bernon, but of course it was actually a joke about still being technically married to Hoppy. (At least she has a sense of humor about it!)

Bethenny appears happy now that she’s left Bravo and focused on launching her new podcast Just B with Bethenny Frankel. Still, we hope this drawn-out divorce process will officially come to an end soon — it’s been a full decade! Girl deserves her freedom!

Nick Fury Show: Samuel L. Jackson in talks for Marvel series

Published

By

Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson’s iconic Avengers character, is set to grace our TV screens, with a new Marvel and Disney Plus series in the works.

Leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. and founder of the Avengers, the one and only Nick Fury is about to give us more memorable one-liners, words of wisdom, and more badass saves.

A new Marvel and Disney Plus TV show is in the works featuring Nick Fury, reports Variety, with Kyle Bradstreet, writer for Mr. Robot, attached as writer and executive producer.

Samuel L Jackson, who has portrayed Fury since the end credits of the first Iron Man film, is in talks to return to the role. At the time, he had a nine-film contract, which technically ended with 2019’s Captain Marvel.

However, Jackson was last seen portraying the character in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far from Home, which was released after Captain Marvel.

Nick Fury Show: What do we know so far?

Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME.

There is very little information available on the Nick Fury show. But we do know that this won’t be the first time that Jackson’s Nick Fury has appeared on the small screen.

The first Marvel TV spin-off, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., featured Fury in numerous cameos throughout the early seasons before his ‘death’ in Captain America: Winter Soldier.

Since Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far from Home have revealed Fury to be alive and well, and back at S.H.I.E.L.D., fans can assume that the show will take place after the events of those films.

However, there are two ways that the Nick Fury show could unfold. The Fury and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) seen during Far from Home were actually Skrulls Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and Soren (Sharon Blynn) in disguise. The show could follow their adventures on Earth as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

On the other hand, the show could follow the real Fury, who was seen vacationing on a Skrull ship in the end-credits scene. The show might take place in space and see Fury helping the refugee Skrulls find a new home. At this point, all is conjecture.

The Nick Fury show joins a host of Marvel and Disney Plus shows on the roster, including WandaVision, set for release in 2020, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and She-Hulk. Other shows in development include What/ If, Hawkeye, Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and Silk.

Enola Holmes is a charming YA detective story fit for all ages

Published

By

On a new episode of Take the Black, we break down the basics of Enola Holmes and give our recommendation: is the YA Sherlock Holmes spinoff worth a watch?

This week, Netflix released Enola Holmes, its take on Nancy Springer’s line of books. The movie tells the story of Sherlock Holmes younger sister Enola, who’s every bit as good a detective as he is. The movie has an impressive cast, with Stranger Things star Mille Bobby Brown as Enola, Henry “Superman” Cavill as Sherlock, and Hunger Games veteran Sam Claflin as their vile brother Mycroft.

It is also, according to our own Mia Johnson, delightful and charming. Every week, Mia and I chat about all things fantasy, sci-fi, movies and TV on our show Take the Black Live, which we stream live on our Facebook page Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m. CST. This week, Mia gave her take on Enola Holmes. If you’re looking for a quick up-or-down recommendation, you’ve found it (the video is time-stamped to skip straight to the Enola Holmes discussion):

So basically, Enola Holmes is a charming watch, target audience of younger viewers be damned. Also, kudos to Mia for nailing the British accent. Or at least I was impressed; any actual British people reading this can feel free to disavow me.

We talk about quite a bit more on this episode of Take the Black Live, including a progress report for House of the Dragon, why Game of Thrones chose to cut Lady Stoneheart, a breakdown of the new WandaVision trailer and more. And if you want to watch us live, check out our Facebook page or YouTube channel!
