For those that are not aware, Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington took his own life two months ago. Since then, fans of the band's music and many who knew Bennington have paid tribute to the singer in many different ways. Recently, Runescape updated their game to feature a tribute to the singer, and it's pretty touching. Check it out below, and if you don't get the reference, continue on for an explanation.
The line "It flickers, flickers," comes from Linkin Park's latest single "One More Light," which was released after Bennington's death.

While I was disappointed that this year's Interdimensional Cable episode was replaced by the episode "Morty's Mind Blowers," I can't deny it was a great episode for the show's canon. As the writers will point out in the video below, the revelation that Rick constantly removes Morty's worst memories may be the reason why he never grows as a character and tolerates the numerous bad situations his grandfather gets him into.
As is tradition with all things Rick And Morty, things take a hilariously dark turn at the end of the video. Be sure to stick around for the bit with Justin Roiland!

A series adaptation of Underworld has been in and out of development for years. According to Deadline, it's finally moving forward with franchise producer Len Wiseman, who also wrote and directed the first two films in the franchise.
We also have some details on the direction he is taking the film. According to Wiseman, “The series will be a pretty big departure from the films. I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comic book in its tone and character.”
That's interesting to hear. I guess if you're a fan of the films, don't expect this series to have the same tone and style. It sounds like they are approaching things a lot differently. There's no word on if the series will be connected to films in any way, but I assume if the series will be a "big departure" the films, it won't be.
I've enjoyed the film franchise, and I'm ok with seeing a new series that will be its own thing with its own style. I'm curious to see what Wiseman ends up doing with it. We don't have any other details to share on it at this time.
Wiseman is set to direct the next Die Hard film, which is a prequel/sequel that will centers around John McClane in both present day and 1970’s New York. Bruce Willis is set to reprise his role, but they haven't cast an actor to play the younger version of him.
Since the new film adaptation of Stephen King's IT has been released, we've seen it influence so many fans and different aspects of pop culture. Now a fan named Mike Anderson has taken Pennywise The Clown and reimagined him in the style of anime. As a fan of anime, it would be pretty rad to see an anime adaption of IT. There's no doubt that it would be an even more jacked-up adaptation. What do you think? After seeing this art would you be down for an IT anime?
Star Trek: Discovery aired it's first episode last night, and I daresay it was much better than many were expecting. In fact, I liked it so much I actually subscribed to CBS All Access after months of publicly saying I would not. I still wish I didn't have to, and really if you're in the same boat you can just wait until the first batch of episodes are up in November, but man was that a great first episode.
I also really liked the opening title sequence, which if you didn't see it last night, feel free to check it out below! What are your thoughts on the premiere of the show?
For some cosplay is a hobby, and for others, it's an art-form. This guy at the Tokyo Game Show was someone who falls in the latter as he projected the gameplay of his Nintendo Switch on his mask as he walked around the halls at the show. Check out the impressive footage below, and ask yourself how he was able to see what he was playing while still being able to walk around the hall.
With Darren Aronofsky making the press rounds for his latest film mother! a lot of people have been asking him about his attempt to make a Batman movie. He recently compared his pitch for that film to The Joker origin film currently in development and even said that wanted Joaquin Pheonix to play Batman. It would have been a very different take on the character.
That movie will never happen but during a recent interview with CinePop, the director revealed that he is still keen on making a superhero movie. When asked if he had any interest in "presenting a unique vision" of the superhero genre, he said:
"I mean, you know, Superman would always be interesting. But they’re already deep into reinventing him, so that’s not going to happen for a long time."
The director goes on to acknowledge that it would be hard for him to do anything radically different with the character because the studio wants to hit the widest audience possible. I seriously doubt Aronofsky will ever get a chance to make a comic book film, unless he was given complete creative freedom to do whatever the hell he wants.
I'd actually be curious to see what Aronofsky would do with a Superman movie. He just makes such whacked out films that there's no doubt it would be interesting. I would have liked to see his Batman. I wonder what kind of ideas he has for a Superman film.
Would you like to see Darren Aronofsky direct a Superman flick?
I've got a cool trailer for an upcoming indie sci-fi film being made called The Beyond. It looks like an interesting sci-fi thriller that's might be worth checking out. The film was written and directed by Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dullul, who is a veteran VFX artist that worked on The Dark Knight.
The Beyond is based on Dullul’s 2014 short film Project Kronos, which you can watch here. The feature film was announced four years ago, and it's cool to see that it's being released! I really enjoyed the short and I'm looking forward to seeing this feature-length version of it.
The story chronicles a space agency of the near future and its first contact with intelligent life on an interstellar space mission. The astronauts embark on this mission using advances robotics and they travel through a newly discovered wormhole known as the Void.
According to the press release:
Dullul self produced, wrote, directed, edited and handled most of the VFX (with support from VFX houses he had relationships with). The film took almost a year to shoot and complete, punching well above it’s weight with a Dolby Vision HDR grade that delivers sensational images of space.
The cast includes Nigel Barber (Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation, Spectre) and Jane Perry (World War Z, Borg vs McEnroe).
The Beyond will be available in the US on January 9th 2018 via Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo, Vudu, Microsoft XBOX, YouTube, Cox Communications, Dish Communications, Suddenlin and Verizion Fios.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if it's a film you'll want to check out.
