Here’s the truth about House of the Dragon Season 2: in case you’re wondering how it got here so fast amidst so many Hollywood strikes, the answer is that it cheated. Season 2 was filmed last summer during the period when the writers were on strike but the actors weren’t yet. This may not be a good thing because most movies and TV shows tend to do revisions and edits to the story during the filming process. What works on paper may not always work in motion.
“Korea-Khitan War” begins with a scene of a bloody battle. It is the 10 century in East Asia, and the fierce Khitans have been conquering various peoples. Their empire covered the regions from Liaodong to Mongolia and now they were determined to conquer Goryeo.
Warner Bros Japan released a full trailer for their upcoming anime movie Suicide Squad ISEKAI today. It’s just the latest in an unexpected avalanche of Suicide Squad related material from DC — we’ve had movies, we’ve had shows, we’ve had new comics and there will at some point be a video game. This reporter never thought he’d have to write the words “Amanda Waller” so many times.
Waluigi, one of Nintendo’s most meme-able characters, did not make his first “WAH” until 2000, when Nintendo was developing Mario Tennis for the N64 and needed an extra character for Doubles matches. Someone suggested making a Wario equivalent for Luigi and giving him a pun name based on the Japanese word “igiwalui” (loosely translates to “a bad person”). Miyamoto had no involvement beyond final approval, so if he didn’t like it, the world might have never seen Waluigi, but he fortunately loved the concept.
“Bargain” begins with a scene in a motel room. No Hyung-Soo had driven a long distance to an obscure location, with the hope of being to have sex with a “virgin”. He was willing to pay $1,000 for the act. If she is a virgin, $1,000 is a bargain. Right? He and the young woman were in the room hammering out the details.
Forget Wonka — the one prequel everybody actually DOES want from Warner Bros is Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, the follow-up to Mad Max Fury Road from the same director, George Miller. The trailer was suddenly dropped tonight, and looks as amazing as you might expect, though some of those CG shots make the thing look like a cartoon. Eh, it’s a work in progress, right?
UDON Entertainment, longtime publisher of material about fighters and the streets they prowl, has announced Street Fighter Masters: Akuma Vs Ryu for next February.
It’s been quite a while — several Presidents, at least — since Capcom released the original Dragon’s Dogma on PS3, 360 and PC in 2012. It was an action RPG in which you played as an Arisen, a being with special abilities in a fantasy world terrorized by giant dragons and other monsters. It’s been a pretty long wait since then, but better late than never for Dragon’s Dogma 2, which has been confirmed to be arriving early next year.
“A Model Family” is about Park Dong-Ha, an ordinary man who could be described as a “model citizen”. But that’s only because he has never been in trouble with the law. He has never even had a traffic ticket.
“Queenmaker,” tells the story of Oh Kyung-sook, who never thought she needed the services of a “queenmaker” because she never planned to become “queen”.

When it comes to politics, she’s a rookie who never intended to run for mayor of Seoul. But her path in life changed accidentally.
