Netflix Acquires Rights to ‘Gears of War’ – Plans Movie and Animated Series
Xbox’s Gears of War is one of the system’s best performers next to Halo. The series of games has become more impressive through the game’s remasters and sequels. Now, Netflix has the rights and they plan on bringing the post-apocalyptic alien-ravaged world to life in a film and animated series.
The news drops on November 7 aka Emergence Day. For those who have played the game, Emergence Day was the day that the deadly Locust Tribe invaded Earth’s cities. The Coalition, the team behind Gears of War, is set to pair up with Netflix in order to bring the action to the screen.
The potential of a Gears of War film could be spectacular if done and cast well. Marcus Phoenix who plays the game’s protagonist must be perfectly captured and performed.
The synopsis for Gears of War goes like this:
“The game follows protagonist Marcus Fenix, a soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments tasked to lead a last-ditch effort to destroy the Locust Horde and save humanity.“
There still aren’t any producers or writers attached but according to Deadline, Netflix intends to make this project a priority. So, we should see that bracket of names fill up fast.
Are you excited about a Netflix and Coalition-produced Gears of War movie and animated series?

‘Alan Wake 2’ Receives First Mindbending, Terrifying Trailer
Remedy Entertainment gives us some of the best games to date. I mean, Control and Alan Wake alone are spectacular. Now, the first peek at the sequel to Alan Wake is giving us a very different game with a lot of really scary shit going on.
The first Alan Wake back in 2010 took us down a very dark path where a writer explored a town that gave us some very big David Lynch Twin Peak vibes. Over time, it became clear that supernatural elements were at work… or maybe it was all in Alan’s head and he was writing the entire game as you played it… the game is really good and if you haven’t played it yet make your way back and get to it before the second one comes out.
The synopsis for Alan Wake 2 goes like this:
A string of ritualistic murders and a supernatural darkness begin to corrupt the locals of the quirky, idyllic small town of Bright Falls. Can FBI agent Saga Anderson and Alan Wake break free from the desolate horror story they’re trapped in and be the heroes they need to be?
Alan Wake 2 arrives beginning October 17.
‘Mortal Kombat 1’ Trailer Brings Us to a New Age of Brilliant Head-Smashing and Gut-Spewing
Mortal Kombat returns with a side-splitting and bone-crunching trailer for the new game. Along with that, we are going back to what fans love about the game. In fact, the game’s title is Mortal Kombat 1. A definite callback to the origin and roots of the franchise. All that with updated, groovy graphics. Perhaps one of the most interesting parts of the game is the lineup of stars that have been called in to voice these characters. More on that part soon.
In the meantime let’s get a look at this brilliant trailer. It reveals choices and paths to take. Good and evil, violent or tame. An interesting turn and we want to see how this pans out and what the game itself does to utilize it. I mean… how exactly do you display choices in a fighting game?
