  1. Last week Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm lost his appeal against his hacking conviction in Denmark. With an August release potentially on the horizon but an unexpected situation still to be resolved in Sweden, Gottfrid is longing to get in front of a computer and back into the world of IT. But before then he wants to set the record straight. Last week and after a technically complex hearing, a jury at the Appeal Court in Denmark again found Gottfrid Svartholm guilty of hacking IT company CSC. The Pirate Bay founder now has no further opportunity to officially protest his innocence. Nevertheless, if all goes to plan and considering time served and his good behavior, Gottfrid could be up for parole middle to late August. But in cases involving the now-famous Swede, it will come as no surprise that there are complications. Gottfrid’s mother, Kristina Svartholm, informs TorrentFreak that the Swedish Prison and Probation service has requested a Nordic warrant for her son. The reason for this is that Swedish authorities sent Gottfrid to Denmark a month before his previous sentence was due to expire in 2013. This means that when he is released from Denmark later this year, he could be sent straight back to prison in Sweden to serve a few more weeks. But despite the setbacks, Gottfrid remains upbeat. “What Gottfrid wants to do now, more than anything else, is to get back to his developmental work within IT (graphics etc),†Kristina told TF. “And, of course, first of all: to sit by a keyboard again after nearly three years away from one.†With those days potentially just a few months away (even when taking the Swedish situation into account) some might sit back and accept their fate. However, Gottfrid is still intent on shining light on what he believes was a sub-standard investigation in Denmark and a poor decision from the court when it denied his appeal. According to Kristina, Gottfrid seriously questions the reports presented by the Danish police and is disappointed by their content, quality and lack of professionalism. “Clumsy amateurs†according to the Pirate Bay founder. In respect of the verdict itself, Gottfrid insists that it contains many “errors, mistakes and misunderstandingsâ€. There is even a suspicion that the judges decided on his guilt before the date of the verdict. “The final speeches from the defense/the prosecutor respectively were made Monday June 15, 2015. The judges and jury met Tuesday for voting. The verdict was presented Wednesday morning. WHEN was this verdict written?†Gottfrid questions. While the answer to that question may never be forthcoming, Gottfrid and Kristina remain determined to shine a light on the Danish investigation and what they both believe to be an extremely flawed legal process. To that end and in conjunction with Gottfrid, Kristina has penned a 2200+ word document detailing what they believe to be the key points behind an unfair investigation, criminal trial, and subsequent appeal. It covers plenty of topics, from the encrypted container found on Gottfrid’s computer to a chat log that became central to linking him to the case, despite it being highly edited by the authorities. Also of interest are the details of discussions secretly recorded by the police that potentially place Gottfrid in the clear, but were still ignored by the Appeal Court. The report can be downloaded here (RTF)
  2. Piracy monetization company Rightscorp has published its results for Q1 2015 and they show that turning piracy into profit still isn't as straightforward as the company might've hoped. Despite protecting more copyrights, bringing more ISPs on board and settling more cases, the company still ended up with an operating loss of $929,768. For years entrepreneurs around the world have listened intently to entertainment companies and their tales of losing billions to piracy. Given the scale of the alleged losses, serious riches must lie in wait for the company with a workable solution. One of the outfits dreaming of piracy-into-profit alchemy are the folks at Rightscorp. They sign up rightsholders, track people sharing their content on BitTorrent, and send a bill to alleged pirates to make imaginary lawsuits go away. Unlike other ‘trolls’, however, Rightscorp only asks for around $20 per infringement, a relatively cheap deal considering the many thousands demanded elsewhere. While it sounds simple enough, the company can’t seem to make it profitable. They argue that it’s still early days (the company only went public in 2013) but the figures don’t lie. Last year Rightscorp lost $3.4 million and during the first quarter of 2015 and despite sounding as optimistic as ever, the company burned through yet more cash. In results published last evening, Rightscorp revealed that it had grown in several key areas during the first quarter, not least the number of copyrights the company has deals to protect. Including two new contracts signed in January for 250,000 copyrights, the company now has 1.5 million in its “authorized copyright catalogâ€. Currently, however, just 256,000 are in the full Rightscorp system. The number of ISPs cooperating in the scheme is up too, from 50 ISPs in March 2014 to more than 233 ISPs in March 2015. With that uplift of 466%, Rightscorp says it now has access to 15% of all homes in the United States and in the past two years has closed 200,000 cases of copyright infringement All in, the company reported revenues of $307,904 for Q1 2015, up 63% on the same period last year. But despite all the growth and positivity it also reported a $929,768 operating loss. The problem – a recurring theme for the company – are its costs. For the first quarter Rightscorp’s operating costs were in excess of $1.2m, a far cry from the $300K it brought in. The company blames part of the losses on fees it pays to copyright holders (roughly 50% of revenues) but that only accounts for $154K. On top the company has an expanding wage bill. In Q1 2014 that stood at $241,347 but in the same period this year those costs had increased to $335,073. Legal costs are also on the rise. In addition to all the usual advice needed to run a company, Rightscorp is currently being sued over the methods it uses to collect cash from alleged pirates. As a result legal costs for the quarter were $182,543, up from $114,242 in the same period last year. As the image above shows, the company’s current position doesn’t look good, a point raised last evening during a conference call with investors. “What could you say about the fact that the stockholder value has gone down about 80% in the last year, in spite of the fact that you’ve done two private equity raises?†one caller questioned. “We think this is a great time to get involved with a company as a shareholder,†Rightscorp COO Robert Steele responded. “Fundamental investment thesis continues to be proven out. So with approximately 250,000 copyrights being monitored we generated $300,000 in top line revenue, there are 27 million Apple copyrights on iTunes, so this can be an enormous business.†But despite the optimism the company’s latest filing paints a bleak picture of the future. “The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover its operating costs and to allow it to continue as a going concern,†the filing reads. “The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it establishes a revenue stream and becomes profitable. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital it could be forced to cease operations.†Only time will tell if Rightscorp will eventually be able to turn piracy into profit, but if current trends continue, each notice sent will only generate a loss. The secret may lie in increased volumes and economies of scale, but if the company feels under serious threat it may seek to up its $20 settlement fee to something more practical. Keep an eye out for that.
  3. The anti-piracy outfit behind the raid of The Pirate Bay says that dozens of "illegal services" are still operating in the same data center. Lawyer Henrik Ponten of Rights Alliance informs TorrentFreak that a major torrent site, a large streaming portal, and a release group topsite are among 40 sites housed nearby. This whole week has felt like a crazy rollercoaster of a dream foretelling an impossible future. Has the world’s most resilient torrent site really gone for good? At this point in time it’s hard to say for sure, but optimism is pretty low. The Pirate Bay was hit hard on Tuesday by Swedish police and currently not a shred of evidence suggests that a recovery is on the cards. The action against TPB, which took place in a cave-built datacenter in Nacka, Sweden, affected several other sites too including Zoink, Torrage, the Istole tracker,, and EZTV was also taken down, but is currently working its way back online. However, according to one of the key figures behind the complaint and subsequent police raid of The Pirate Bay, the sites taken down this week are just the tip of a pretty large Swedish iceberg. Henrik Pontén is a lawyer with Rights Alliance, the anti-piracy group previously known as Antipiratbyrån. He informs TorrentFreak that there are dozens of other ‘pirate’ sites operating in the very same datacenter that previously housed parts of The Pirate Bay. “At the hosting provider that the police raided [this week] there are still around 40 illegal sites still up and running,†Pontén explains. Quite why those sites didn’t go down too isn’t clear, but according to the lawyer some big ones remain operational including torrent site and streaming movie portal Perhaps even more of a surprise is Pontén’s allegation that movie release group SPARKS is operating a topsite there. TorrentFreak has no way of verifying the claim and the fact we were given the information is in itself curious, but the Rights Alliance lawyer seems pretty convinced. The big question is whether the anti-piracy group intends to do anything about the sites. We weren’t told anything specific but received a general warning. “Rights Alliance acts wherever a crime has been committed against our rightsholders. The guilty persons will be prosecuted and damages will be required,†Pontén said. In the meantime and in the wake of the The Pirate Bay’s untimely disappearance there’s no shortage of sites stepping up to try and take its place. As previously mentioned certain impostors have directed people to malware and have even tried to charge for access. Right now this misdirection only looks set to get worse – unless there’s a miraculous rebirth this Christmas. torrentfreak
  4. "I really believe it's year two when you tend to see those titles come through that start to define the whole generation." "I really believe it's year two when you tend to see those titles come through that start to define the whole generation." Though the PlayStation 4 has gotten off to a hot start, the console's best days are still to come, according to Sony UK executive Fergal Gara. In a new interview, Gara said the PS4 software lineup has been great so far, but explained that generation-defining games are still to come. "I really believe it's year two when you tend to see those titles come through that start to define the whole generation," he told IGN. "The best is yet to come on PS4. We've seen a brilliant start with the mega-franchises, like the FIFAs, Call of Duties, and the Assassin's Creeds, but we've also seen some strong new IPs launch--the likes of Destiny and Watch Dogs. But I think that the ones that are truly to define the generation are probably still to come, to be honest." Gara went on to say that history bears this out. He said the Original PlayStation didn't get its first "truly memorable" game until 1996, which was two years after the console's initial debut in Japan. "It shows that it does take some time for a platform to mature and for developers to make the best of it," he said. "In fact, you look at PS3, two of the highest-rated games of the entire cycle came in the last year with The Last of Us and GTA V. So it's a great sign of how things can progress over several years." Sony has a number of big-name games already lined up for PS4 in 2015, including Bloodborne, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, The Order: 1886, and No Man's Sky, among others. As we look to the future, what are you looking for from PS4? Let us know in the comments below!
  5. Developer apologizes for keeping fans waiting; Connection problems persist during peak hours. Evolution Studios, the developer responsible for Driveclub, has apologized to fans for the lack of information regarding the delayed PS Plus edition of the PlayStation 4 racer. Driveclub's launch two weeks ago was marred by severe connection problems due to errors within the game's netcode, which Evolution has attempted to remedy ever since. Prior to the release of Driveclub, Evolution and Sony had agreed to release a free abridged version of the game to PS Plus subscribers, which was scheduled to go live in early October. However, due to the online connection problems, coupled with the likelihood that a surge of new players would make matters worse, Sony decided to postpone the PS Plus edition. It is still unclear when the PS Plus edition will be released, and on Monday, Evolution posted an apology on its Facebook page for the lack of updates on the matter. "The PS Plus Edition news will come as soon as we have concrete info--sorry to keep you all waiting," the studio wrote. Representatives for Evolution have since been proactive in engaging with the community, frequently updating its Facebook fan page and releasing several patches to help restore connections. It was hoped that the latest patch, released over the weekend, would be a breakthrough for the game. But Evolution now says the outcome was not quite as successful as it hoped. "We can see that the majority of you can now get online, but we know that at peak times of the day it can still be hard to get connected, so we are still working to improve connectivity with every update to the servers," the Sony owned studio wrote. "We can also see that when you do get connected, some of you are having a hard time getting into multiplayer races and that posting leaderboard results can sometimes take a lot longer than you'd expect. "These connectivity issues stem from the same unforeseen server problem that we've been working to get on top of since we launched Driveclub, and while we are getting on top of the problem now, we are still working round the clock to keep improving gameplay for you." Critics were somewhat divided on the exclusive PS4 racer, with GameSpot's Driveclub review describing it is "not an argument for a new generation of driving, given how it fails to exceed the standards of the old one."

  6. Mariah Carey reportedly 'breaks down a lot' following her split from Nick Cannon. The 44-year-old singer and her husband tied the knot in 2008 but recently separated after months of speculation surrounding their marriage. To show this decision is serious, Nick, 34, took drastic measures in getting the 'Mariah' tattoo on his back covered up, unveiling a new crucifix design earlier this month. This move is said to have shocked Mariah, who is reportedly struggling to come to terms with the breakdown of her nuptials. 'Mariah's pals are worried she's falling apart. She was stunned when she saw Nick's tattoo, especially since they only split in May,' a source told British magazine Closer. 'She breaks down a lot and last week she struggled to keep it together on stage.' She was criticised for her poor vocals during a performance in Japan earlier this month, with concertgoers slamming her voice. Mariah, who has twins Moroccan and Monroe with Nick, made things personal throughout the show by changing the lyrics to one of her songs, adding the line: "I know you cheated, motherf**ker". She is said to be convinced her spouse had an affair during their marriage, and is apparently pestering her entourage for details of his love life. 'Mariah thinks the only reason Nick has covered up the tattoo is because another girl doesn't want to look at it,' the source added. 'She's been asking her staff whether they know if Nick is in a relationship.' She is also said to have turned to close pal Nas to play matchmaker and set her up with a new beau.

  7. Miley Cyrus' breakup anniversary is apparently taking its toll. The 21-year-old singer met Liam Hemsworth on the set of The Last Song in 2009 and they began dating, announcing their engagement in June 2012. However, things came to an end in September last year. Now it's a year on, but it seems the singer is still struggling. She posted several bizarre drawings online recently, including one of an alien with speech bubbles including phrases such as "Why does love make me cry?" and "No galaxy, planet, sun or moon compares to you". It's thought they could have been her way of reaching out to her ex. "The first anniversary of their split has hit Miley really hard. She hasn't moved on," a source divulged to British magazine Star. Alongside her artwork, Miley has been sharing bizarre pictures of herself in a bathtub on Instagram. It's thought one of the things that contributed to her split from Liam was her erratic behavior. Formerly a Disney star, Miley cut her long hair short in 2012 and shocked many of her fans by speaking openly about drugs and performing on stage in tiny outfits. But now she is apparently using her antics to try and attract her ex's attention. "Her recent controversial behavior - the barely there outfits, partying until the early hours and posting topless photographs online - has all been a desperate bid to get Liam's attention," the insider continued. "She thinks that by acting out he'll take notice of her again. Everything she does is a cry for attention."

  8. Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy has already become the highest-grossing film of 2014 (domestically) just one month into its theatrical run. Not only that, James Gunn’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe made a name for itself as a critics’ favorite, giving the property a one-two punch of commercial and critical appeal. As discussed on the Screen Rant Underground podcast, its success opened many doors for Marvel as they continue their shared universe for years to come. As Kevin Feige and company move onwards to Phase 3, there’s been a lot of talk of the company’s so-called “third-tier†characters joining the ranks of Star-Lord and Rocket as international movie stars. Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man is already in production, Scott Derrickson is set to call the shots on Doctor Strange and there’s a script for Inhumans that’s ready to be passed around. One hero in particular that comic fans have been clamoring for a long time is Black Panther. A native of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, it has been speculated by some that the character will be making an appearance in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron - based on director Joss Whedon having shot some scenes in South Africa. The potential for a Black Panther adaptation has been a discussion point for a while now. Feige himself said that the project was “absolutely in development†last year and more recently admitted that the studio is listening to the public’s requests to feature Black Panther in a film. Not only that, Star Wars: Episode VII star John Boyega teased around SDCC 2014 that he was “aiming†for a Marvel role and “booking a flight to Wakanda.†Even Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee has had a thing or two to say about Black Panther possibly showing up in a feature film. Lee mentioned last year that Black Pantherwas one upcoming MCU installment he knew about, and now he’s at it again. During a panel at Fan Expo Canada (via Comic Book Resources), he opened up about Marvel Studios’ future plans when discussing the prospect of a Black Widow solo film. “We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about.†Given that Marvel has their movie universe planned out through 2028 and haveseveral unannounced films on the horizon, it seems very likely that the King of Wakanda will become known to moviegoers soon. Still, we’ve been down this road before with Lee namedropping Black Panther and the studio remaining silent in regards to actually confirming it. Feige’s comments are a promising sign, but until Marvel Studios comes out and says that it’s officially happening, all fans have to go off on is hearsay. This is essentially becoming Marvel’s version of Shazam; the upcoming movie everyone knows is coming via elaborate teases, but isn’t scheduled yet. With the recent quotes from Feige, Boyega, and Lee, it certainly appears that the wheels are in motion, so it’s plausible to think that there will be some word about the film in the foreseeable future. With this much activity surrounding it, it wouldn’t add up if nothing came to fruition. The issue, as it stands, is not if we’ll see Black Panther, but when. There are currently six unclaimed release dates for Disney/Marvel, including two in 2017 and three in 2018. We know Thor 3 and The Avengers 3 will take two of those spots eventually, while Doctor Strange and Inhumans are likely to claim two of the remaining dates. However, that still leaves room for a newcomer like Black Pantherto arrive on the scene in there. We’ll keep you updated on Black Panther as more information becomes available.
  9. The period drama Serena is an oddity – in the sense that we’ve heard so little about it, thus far. The flick stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper - their third movie together along with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle – and was directed by filmmaker Susanne Bier, whose previous work includes the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winning film In a Better World. Post-production on Serenamay’ve taken longer than expected, but the movie is seemingly all finished by now – so why doesn’t it have a U.S. release date yet? Serena is now slated to hit U.K. theaters on October 24th this year, but as of right now the project isn’t slated for a U.S. launch – and thus, isn’t a potential contender in the forthcoming awards season race, despite having impressive credentials that also include best-selling source material by Ron Rash. Back in late 2013, the film was shopped around to potential distributors but, for reasons that have yet to be made public, no studios picked up the feature. Bier and her editing team, which includes frequent collaborator Pernille Bech Christensen and Matthew Newman (Drive), reportedly spent some 18 months to finish Serena, with THR‘s insider reporting that “it was just a real precision edit because the story is about a woman’s decent into madness†– coupled with Bier’s tendency (as a filmmaker) to be a perfectionist in general, that is. You can read through the synopsis for Serena below, followed by a newly-released image of Lawrence in the film. The film follows newlyweds George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, killing or vanquishing all who stand in the way of their ambitions. But when Serena learns that she can never bear a child, she sets out to murder the woman who bore George a son before his marriage. And when she starts to suspect that George is protecting his illegitimate family, the Pembertons’ intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward its shocking reckoning. Both Lawrence and Cooper will have new films hitting theaters before 2014 draws to a close (not counting Cooper’s voice work as Rocket Racoon in Guardians of the Galaxy), in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and American Sniper, respectively. In other words, their careers are going perfectly well and will continue to do so in the future, regardless of what ultimately happens with Serena. (That is, whether it finally gets shown in U.S. theaters or winds up being quietly given a direct-to-home viewing release.) That said, Bier’s film looks to be a handsome historical drama, especially in terms of the costumes from Alice Cortes Kheilova (Hellboy, La Vie en Rose) – and the scripted storyline by Christopher Kyle (K-19: The Widowmaker, Alexander) sounds like it offers the sort of meaty dramatic material that will properly showcase Cooper and Lawrence’s acting prowess. So, fingers crossed, we’ll get to see it sooner than later (here in the States, that is). Serena is currently without a U.S. release date, but will open in the U.K. on October 24th, 2014.
  10. Leaked photos examined by blog site uSwitch imply Apple may enlarge the screen of its next iPhone but keep the device small enough to use with one hand. Though it may offer a larger screen, the next iPhone could still fit and work nicely in one hand.Apple's anticipated iPhone 6 will reportedly adopt a 4.7-inch screen to lure in consumers craving big-screened phones. Does that mean you'll need two hands to work and play with the larger phone? Not according to a report released Friday by tech blog and product comparison site uSwitch.Giving the iPhone 6 a bigger screen almost implies that the phone itself will also have to grow in size. If so, the downside is that a larger phone might not fit as comfortably in one hand as do the current 5S and 5C models. Users, especially those of us with small fingers, might have to use two hands to reach the top of the touchscreen or the bottom area near the home button.But an analysis of "exclusive photos" of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 garnered by uSwitch along with leaks from known Apple leaker Sonny Dickson suggest that Apple has cooked up some ways to keep the expected iPhone 6 small despite its larger screen.In one photo examined by uSwitch, the area of the iPhone 6 near the homebutton seems to have been reduced in size when compared with the same area on the the iPhone 5S. Other photos appear to show that Apple has also employed smaller bezels on the sides of the screen to further keep the phone small enough to fit in your hand and your pocket.Based simply on leaked photos, information like this should always be taken with a grain of salt. But uSwitch has tried to add some credibility to its data by pointing to a code called "6G" on the iPhone screens that it analyzed. According to supply-chain sources and iPhone repairers in the UK, putting the letter G after the model phone number is a common naming convention, as the iPhone 4 was known as the iPhone 4G and the iPhone 5 as the 5G.Of course, the photos may still not be the real deal, which means the information about a small but big-screened iPhone 6 might not be credible.However, one of the problems with big-screened phones is their overall size, often requiring the use of two hands to work them. Trying to top the competition with its own large-screened phone, Apple could have easily played around with the size to make sure that the 4.7-inch iPhone fits snugly for those of us who still prefer the one-handed approach.
  11. When it comes to the world of movie musicals, there are few as beloved or memorable as West Side Story. That 1961 film – which starred Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer – was one of the most successful films of that year and went on to win 10 Oscars, including Best Picture. So the fact that, just a few short months ago, iconic filmmaker Steven Spielberg expressed interest in remaking the film was nothing short of a surprise. Reports claimed that Fox was willing to finance the film, despite its undeniable classic status, with Spielberg in the director’s chair. However, little clarification followed the news, but now Spielberg has mentioned the proposed West Side Storyremake. The filmmaker was recently asked by Good Morning America (via The Playlist) about the project while promoting The Hundred-Foot Journey along with fellow producer Oprah Winfrey. Here’s what he had to say: “Well, you know something, West Side Story is one of my favorite Broadway musicals and one of the greatest pieces of musical literature, my goodness, one of the greatest scores and [it has] some of the greatest lyrics ever written for a musical, so just let me put it this way: it’s on my mind.†Spielberg is certainly not alone in his respect and affection for the musical, though his failure to mention the original film might indicate that he has a unique take on the material. The director has never been known to simply imitate the work of others; so any West Side Story film he’d make would likely feature an entirely different look and feel from the original film. The fact that he’s still apparently mulling it over is interesting news too, as it doesn’t sound like the film is in active development just yet. Rather, Spielberg may just be putting the idea out there and gauging the public’s response before committing to the project, which may be a good idea considering musicals’ spotty track record and the original film’s existing fanbase. While animated musicals like Frozen and The Lorax continue to perform at the box office, their live-action counterparts have been decidedly hit-and-miss lately. BothRock of Ages and Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys are based on hit stage productions, and both were regarded as critical and financial disappointments. While the former’s 1980s reverence inherently lends itself to an over-the-top, silly production, the latter had an Oscar-winning filmmaker and serious real life subject matter behind it butstill couldn’t find an audience. There’s every reason to think that the widespread recognizability of West Side Storycould work in Spielberg’s favor, should the project take place (Eastwood’s long-discussed and musically-themed A Star Is Born remake still hasn’t seen the light of day, after all). And if there’s anyone who can turn a beloved musical like West Side Story into the next Les Miserables – in terms of box office take, critical acclaim and award wins – it’s likely Spielberg. Do you think a Spielberg-helmed West Side Story remake is a good idea, or is this one classic that should be left untouched? Sound off in the comments section below. Stay tuned to Screen Rant for updates on the proposed West Side Story remake.
  12. The comic book movie world was shocked late last week when it was revealed that director Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios would no longer be working together on the 2015 superhero blockbuster Ant-Man. In the days since, we've read many reports and heard plenty of speculation as to exactly what happened between the filmmaker and the studio, but in the mind's of many fans the big question isn't about what has happened, but instead what will happen. Is Ant-Man still going to be made in time for next summer? If the most recent trade reports are to believed, the answer is yes. In their full report about the Edgar Wright/Ant-Man story, The Hollywood Reporter peppers in details saying that the comic book movie is still on schedule and that Marvel expects the finished product to be ready in time for the set release date on July 17, 2015. The studio is still searching for a filmmaker to take Wright's place and they must also replace some production department heads that left when it was revealed that filming wouldn't begin on schedule, but the plan is still to have the feature ready to come out just a few months after Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Paul Rudd is still attached to play Scott Lang, but THR doesn't mention the status of any of the other actors who were previously announced for the project, including Michael Douglas (who is playing Hank Pym), Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, and Michael Pena. Recapping exactly what went down between Edgar Wright and Marvel, THR's sources also basically confirmed the reports that came out this past weekend. As the story goes, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige wasn't happy with the Ant-Man script that had been written by Wright and Joe Cornish. He authorized a rewrite done to be done without the director's input, and upon learning about and receiving the revisions, Wright decided to walk away from the project. It's a pretty stunning development considering that the Shaun of the Dead filmmker had been attached to Ant-Man since 2006. If Ant-Man is actually going to hit its announced release date next summer, then we can probably expect to hear some very big news about the film soon. Who will they be able to get who could pick up from where Edgar Wright left off and work fast enough to get the movie ready on schedule? We're very excited to learn the answer and should have one in the next couple of weeks. For now, read about our suggestions for the gig and tell us what you're thinking in the comments section below.
  13. After numerous reports regarding NBA 2K14‘s online issues and problems with crashing, Xbox One and PlayStation 3 players are still plagued with difficulties in spite of attempted patches from 2K Games. Researching the problem on the 2K Games Forum‘s and the 2K Games official technical support Twitter account shows an abundance of people complaining about the various problems with NBA 2K14. These problems have included a variety of issues from the loss of Virtual Currency (which is earned or purchased), instable servers causing dropped games, corrupted save files, problems running online leagues & the MyGM modes. This is also a negative of making systems and games mandatory to be online to play. If the servers don’t work, you’re stuck with a sixty dollar disk. This is certainly an incredibly frustrating situation for everyone involved. Sports franchises thrive on yearly installments for their games by making dedicated players put up good money for what usually is a few tweaks in gameplay and a roster overhaul in most cases. But when a game’s basic modes provides problems for games patience is going to run thin very fast. These problems had caused a wave complaints to the point where it takes support over a week to address gamers who have taken the time to try and fix their problems with NBA 2K14. Some fans have had such an issue with this that there are over 2,000 supporters for a petition asking for an apology or some sort of refund. 2K Sports has been pretty quiet on the matter but has released a couple of patches. However, the overall dissatisfaction remains pretty high as more and more players are experiencing issues with this highly reviewed basketball title. Another issue worth mentioning is that MyGM and My Player modes will not work offline, but then these modes can’t be played if the 2K Servers are down. The worst part of all this is that with the limited amount of next-gen titles, is that a lot of people would love to be playing NBA 2K14 right now but these issues are making it harder and harder for players to enjoy their games. A potentially easy fix to this problem could be to release the game every other year, offering a re-vamped roster update yearly (with discounted purchase to ensure the video game company still makes money yearly). This would give 2K Sports (and other sports companies) time to properly test servers, beta test and develop titles so there isn’t a mess of problems with a rushed title. Updating games every other year would also let gamers see significant improvement in titles ensuring more purchases of the latest titles. It seems pretty clear that rushing next-gen versions of NBA 2K14 for the Xbox One & PlayStation 4 is the main problem. If 2K Sports would have just taken the time to make sure NBA 2K15 was properly ready for the next-gen systems, I’m sure it would have caused less damage to their reputation than all of the patches addressing NBA 2K14. It never seemed like it could a reality a few years ago, but if EA Sports can actually put together a good basketball title with properly working online play, then 2K Sports could be in a lot of trouble.
