THE ENTERTAINMENT FACTOR Wishes You a Happy New Year

We here at The Entertainment Factor wish you a Happy New Year, and may all your wishes and hopes come true !

final-fantasy-7-biohazard-gameplay-videos

CAPCOM has released three gameplay videos that tease some of the new horrors that await in their upcoming survival horror game "Resident Evil VII biohazard". Also, there's a streaming gameplay video released by TheRelaxingEnd via YouTube that plays through "Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour", which is 90 minutes of pure terror. "Beginning Hour" is not a part of the final game, but it's a great introduction to what the game will be like.

This will be the first game in the franchise to feature a first-person perspective, and the action is set in modern day rural America, four years after the events of "Resident Evil 6". The protagonist, Ethan Winers, is a civilian, which severely limits the combat options we would all hope to have in a deadly situation such as this. While searching for his wife, Ethan comes across the derelict plantation mansion that belongs to the Baker family. The videos focus on some of the hide-and-seek games that players will have to endure inside the house of the deranged Baker family, and the atmosphere is quite disturbing, to say the least.

"Resident Evil VII biohazard" will be released on January 24th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 version will be playable in VR using the PlayStation VR headset.

Watch the videos after the jump.

the-path-season-2-trailer-and-images

Hulu has released a new trailer and a few images for the new season of their original drama series "The Path". The show follows a family that has joined a controversial cult led by the charismatic Cal Roberts (Hugh Dancy) as they struggle with relationships, faith and power. The cast also features Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, Kyle Allen, Emma Greenwell and Rockmond Dunbar. One new addition to the cast is a character named Kodiak, played by James Remar.

"The Path" Season 2 will premiere on January 25th.

Check out the trailer and images after the jump.

arsenal-movie-trailer-and-poster-nicolas-cage

"Arsenal" is a thriller from director Steven C. Miller whose resume includes VOD films like "Marauders" and "Extraction". The film stars Adrian Grenier as the owner of a construction company who must rescue his mobster brother (Johnathon Schaech) who was kidnapped by ruthless crime boss Eddie King (Nicolas Cage). In his quest for vengeance, he also enlists the help of his brother's friend Sal (John Cusack), a plain clothes detective.

The strange thing about this movie is that it's actually a sequel to the 1993 thriller "Deadfall", which was directed by Christopher Coppola, Cages's brother. That film also starred Cage as an excentric wig-wearing character named Eddie. Why anyone would want to make a sequel to that film, is a big mystery to me, but maybe it has a cult following I don't know about.

The cast also includes Christopher Coppola, Megan Leonard, Christopher Rob Bowen, Tyler Jon Olson and Shea Buckner.

"Arsenal" will be released in select theaters and VOD on January 6, 2017.

Ryan Gosling Picture
Ryan Gosling and director Damien Chazelle will team up once more following the success of the musical "La La Land", this time for a biopic that will chronicle Neil Armstrong's trip to the moon. Gosling's bid for the lead role has been a rumor floating in space since 2015, but now a deal has been reached and it's finally official. The film, titled "First Man", is based on the book "First Man: A Life of Neil A. Armstrong" written by James Hansen, and it will follow the evolution of the space program between 1961 and 1969 that culminated with Armstrong's walk on the moon. The script will be written by "Spotlight" Oscar-winning co-writer Josh Singer. The film will be produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, better known for the "Twilight" and "Maze Runner" franchises.

And here's the synopsis for the book "First Man: A Life of Neil A. Armstrong":

"Marking the forty-fifth anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing, First Man by James Hansen offers the only authorized glimpse into the life of America’s most famous astronaut, Neil Armstrong—the man whose “one small step” changed history. “The Eagle has landed.”

When Apollo 11 touched down on the moon’s surface in 1969, the first man on the moon became a legend. In First Man, Hansen explores the life of Neil Armstrong. Based on over fifty hours of interviews with the intensely private Armstrong, who also gave Hansen exclusive access to private documents and family sources, this “magnificent panorama of the second half of the American twentieth century” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) is an unparalleled biography of an American icon.

Upon his return to earth, Armstrong was honored and celebrated for his monumental achievement. He was also—as James R. Hansen reveals in this fascinating and important biography—misunderstood. Armstrong’s accomplishments as engineer, test pilot, and astronaut have long been a matter of record, but Hansen’s unprecedented access to private documents and unpublished sources and his interviews with more than 125 subjects (including more than fifty hours with Armstrong himself) yield this first in-depth analysis of an elusive American celebrity still renowned the world over.

In a riveting narrative filled with revelations, Hansen vividly recreates Armstrong’s career in flying, from his seventy-eight combat missions as a naval aviator flying over North Korea to his formative transatmospheric flights in the rocket-powered X-15 to his piloting Gemini VIII to the first-ever docking in space. These milestones made it seem, as Armstrong’s mother Viola memorably put it, “as if from the very moment he was born—farther back still—that our son was somehow destined for the Apollo 11 mission.”

For a pilot who cared more about flying to the Moon than he did about walking on it, Hansen asserts, Armstrong’s storied vocation exacted a dear personal toll, paid in kind by his wife and children. For the forty-five years since the Moon landing, rumors have swirled around Armstrong concerning his dreams of space travel, his religious beliefs, and his private life.

In a penetrating exploration of American hero worship, Hansen addresses the complex legacy of the First Man, as an astronaut and as an individual. In First Man, the personal, technological, epic, and iconic blend to form the portrait of a great but reluctant hero who will forever be known as history’s most famous space traveler."

in-theaters-paterson-20th-century-women-ocean-waves-dr-feelgood-dealer-or-healer

There are no new wide releases this week, but a few interesting films are opening in select theaters. The most notable are Jim Jarmusch's new dramedy "Paterson" starring Adam Driver and "20th Century Women" starring Annette Bening in what many are calling a career-best performance. Also, Studio Ghibli is finally releasing a remastered version of their 1993 animated feature "Ocean Waves" in North American theaters. And for documentary fans, we have "Dr. Feelgood: Dealer or Healer", a chronicle of the controversial trial of Dr. William Hurwitz and a thoughtful look into the issue of painkiller abuse.

Synopses, details, critical reception, trailers, clips and more after the jump.

dr-feelgood-dealer-or-healer-documentary-trailer-images-and-poster

Directed by Eve Marson, the documentary "Dr. Feelgood: Dealer or Healer?" is an examination of America’s opioid abuse problem and its focus is set on the trial of Dr. William Hurwitz who was convicted in 2004 for over 50 counts of narcotics distribution. In detailing the conflicting accounts of witnesses and telling the story of a compassionate yet flawed doctor, the film underscores the thin line between the humane treatment of patients who are in pain and the need for drug control.

"Dr. Feelgood: Dealer or Healer?" has been released today in theaters, but only in New York.

Ghibli's anime "Ocean Waves" ("Umi ga kikoeru") has been released for the first time ever in North American theaters. The 1993 television special never received a home video release, either, but now that Walt Disney has included it in its international distribution deal, it will probably get a DVD release, once it finishes its select theater run, which is scheduled between December 28, 2016 and March 10, 2017.

Directed by Tomomi Mochizuki, the film features the voices of Nobuo Tobita, Toshihiko Seki, Yoko Sakamoto, Kae Araki and Yuri Amano.

the-surge-new-gameplay-trailer

Deck 13 has released a new 4-minute gameplay trailer that offers a look at their upcoming action RPG "The Surge". There's a taste of combat and some of the game's enemies in the video, and it looks promising, particularly for fans of the "Dark Souls" series.

sneaky-pete-season-1-trailer-and-poster

The pilot for Amazon's original series "Sneaky Pete" premiered on August 7th, 2015, as part of the company's policy of offering pilots for their viewers and letting them decide whether they'd like to watch it as a full series. And it did receive a series order, also becoming one of Amazon's most watched and highly reviewed pilot. It's surprising then that Amazon has taken so long before finally releasing it.

The show is created by "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston and "Dr. House" creator David Shore, and it stars Giovanni Ribisi as a con man who runs from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete. The plot complicates further when he reunites with Pete's estranged family and a gangster holds his brother hostage for ransom.

The cast also includes Marin Ireland, Margo Martindale, Libe Barer, Shane McRae, Michael Drayer and Peter Gerety.

The remaining nine episodes of "Sneaky Pete" Season 1 will premiere on January 13th.

A new 3D platformer with a silly cartoonish style may not be the biggest event in the history of gaming, but developers Gears for Breakfast's "A Hat in Time" aims to charm even the most hardened modern gamer.

The full game will feature both local or online co-op and modding support via the Steam Workshop.

There are no details available regarding the plot, except that it's going to be a new story and it will be the show's final season. Here's what creator Chris Chibnall had to say about it:

warhammer-40000-inquisitor-martyr-open-world-trailer

NeoCore Games has released a new trailer for their upcoming action RPG "Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr". The game is set in an open world, namely the Calgari sector of the Segmentum Tempestus, and players will start out in one of its many subsectors.

The trailer offers an in-depth look at the many systems, planets and subsectors that form the massive sandbox where the player will carry out both the single-player campaign, randomized missions, as well as "specifically tailored missions" that will be part of the "Grand Investigations".

The developers also tease the so-called "seasons", free content patches that will introduce new enemy types, conflicts and investigations. Each season will run for a limited amount of time, and then "they will be resolved, depending on how the Inquisitors of the Caligari Conclave decide on certain matters". I'm not quite sure what they're going on about, but it sounds delightful.

"Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr" will be released sometime next year.

alien-covenant-teaser-trailer-and-poster

It's been a difficult wait, but 20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant", the upcoming installment in the "Alien" franchise, and a follow-up to Scott's "Prometheus".

The trailer is wonderfully mysterious and doesn't lay out the plot from start to finish like most other blockbuster trailers, but instead relies on atmosphere, a great choice of music, and a decent amount of gore to start with. The film chronicles the adventures of the colony ship Covenant's crew as they discover what they think is an uncharted paradise. The planet is, as it turns out, a much darker and dangerous place than any of them could have imagined.

It's not exactly explained, but the synopsis also mentions that the crew discover the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition, but we'll have to wait and see how he got there, and where is the other survivor from the previous film, Elizabeth Shaw. We know for a fact Shaw will make an appearance, because Noomi Rapace is confirmed to star in this film, but it could just be a flashback of sorts. And, yes, everyone's favorite xenomorph will be in this film, as confirmed by the final moments of the trailer.

The cast also includes Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Callie Hernandez and Guy Pearce.

"Alien: Covenant" will open in theaters on May 19th, 2017.

vampyr-darkness-within-trailer

Today we have a new trailer for Dontnod Entertainment's new action RPG "Vampyr: The Darkness Within". Gameplay footage has been shown at this year's E3, so there's a hint of an idea about what the game is all about, but this new trailer focuses on the cinematics and reveals a bit of the plot.

Set in 1918 London during a deadly bout of the Spanish Flu, the game will give players control over the actions of Dr Jonathan Reid, who has arrived home from serving in the Great War with quite a problematic disease: vampirism. Obviously, being a doctor and a blood-craving monster is a pretty bad combination. We'll have to wait and see how Reid ultimately handles his dual life.

"Vampyr: The Darkness Within" will be released in 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
