The best character from Army of the Dead is getting a spinoff in Army of Thieves and we’re all here for more Ludwig Dieter content.
“Safe-cracker Ludwig Dieter is back and taking center stage in the prequel/spinoff of Army of the Dead. Titled Army of Thieves, it tells Dieter’s story before he entered a zombie-infested Las Vegas. Back then, he was just a small-town safe-cracking expert, but he must’ve been known in the safe-cracking circles because he gets recruited by a mysterious woman who’s been watching him, named Gwendoline, played by Nathalie Emmanuel, who’s known for her starring role in Game of Thrones.”
Did Doctor Strange come in contact with He Who Remains before Loki and Sylvie? This Avengers: Infinity War scene suggests so.
“What if Sylvie and Loki aren’t the only characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have crossed paths with He Who Remains? That pair finally came face-to-face with the powerful and eccentric Kang variant in Loki’s Season 1 finale, at which point he gave them significant reasons to let him continue controlling the timestream. He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) even went so far as to offer Loki (Tom Hiddleston) ownership of the Infinity Gauntlet, proving just how invested he was in maintaining the timeline’s stability.”
Think you’re good at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Think again. This Japanese player makes that game’s hardest fights look like dance routines.
“There are people who are good at fighting in The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild, and then there’s Japanese player Peco, whose skill transforms brutal battles into expertly choreographed ballets of creative violence, making his foes look like fools in the process. Take the poor Lynel atop this post. The powerful, centaur-like boss is used to instilling a certain amount of fear and respect in its opponents.”
Get your tea and crumpets ready, these are the best British TV series streaming on Netflix.
“In recent years, fans of British television have been in luck: Thanks to Netflix’s partnerships with BBC, Channel 4, and other production studios, it’s been able to license and co-produce more than a handful of series, bringing them accessibly stateside for the first time. There’s a little something for everyone: Not only does Netflix have the rights to quite a few classic procedurals, but there are also a lot of sitcoms flaunting their absurd British humor in the mix too.”
From Yesterday to Billie Jean, these songs have been covered more than any other.
“Unlike movies, where it’s rare that a second (or third) attempt at remaking a film can ever match—let alone top—the original, music is a different sort of creative beast. Just because The Beatles did a bang-up job on one song doesn’t mean that Joan Baez or Elvis Presley couldn’t do the same tune justice in their own unique way. This is a very good thing, as The Beatles’ catalog is one of the most copied in music history.”
New images of toys and games based on Ghostbusters: Afterlife tease the return of many of the franchise’s iconic devices.
“With the release of a brand new trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, it’s only fitting a wave of toys comes along with it. io9 is excited to debut three brand new Ghostbusters-themed items, ones that focus primarily on the new film but stay true to the original roots. We have the first images of Hasbro’s RC RTV Ghost Trap, Fright Features Figures (which depict characters from both the new and original films) as well as Clue: Ghostbusters Edition, which you get a tease of above.”
