For all the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the past month, we still haven’t seen very much in the way of new looks for our favorite characters. Nearly every shot of the trailer and officially sanctioned image from Lucasfilm has shown heroes like Rey and Finn and villains like Phasma and Kylo Ren as we saw them last in The Force Awakens. Aside from new toy packaging and the rare t-shirt design, there hasn’t even been very little headway into different haircuts for these characters. That changes today however, due largely to Star Wars Battlefront II’s pre-order materials. Thanks to Gamestop, we now have a bit of an idea what Rey and Kylo Ren will look like in the upcoming eighth episode of the Star Wars saga proper.

In 1992, Reservoir Dogs introduced Quentin Tarantino and his brand of cinematic violence to the world. Now, 25 years later, Big Star Games and Lionsgate are bringing a video game prequel to PC. Though video game tie-ins haven't exactly set the world on fire since... well, ever... Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is hoping to be as memorable as Mr. Blonde, and not nearly as forgettable as Mr. Brown.

Telltale Games’ Walking Dead adaptations have more often told stories within the comic realm adjacent to the characters we know, though fan-favorite Michonne will finally get the new spotlight in a new series, and with a familiar voice at that. Orange is the New Black breakout Samira Wiley will lend her voice to the katana-wielding zombie killer, as Telltale sets a new Walking Dead game for February.

In case you forgot, there's a Lego Marvel video game still on the docket this year. That's on top of Lego Jurassic World, Lego Worlds and Lego Dimensions, all of which are either currently available or coming very, very soon. Though we haven't had a Lego Marvel game proper since Lego Marvel Super Heroes in 2013, we have had one of the biggest Marvel movies of all time release this year. Guess that makes it perfect timing for a new adventure in the Lego Marvel world. The first full trailer for Lego Marvel's Avengers arrived today, just ahead of its gameplay debut at E3 2015. Like Lego Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings before it, Lego Avengers will combine the cinematic heroics of Marvel's most well-known team of heroes into one game disc. While it is a bit of a shame we won't have quite as big a look into the Lego Marvel U as we did with the previous game, this trailer does bring back fond feelings for Lego Hulk.

Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones’ video game “Iron From Ice” took us all by surprise with the announcement that HBO series stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Iwan Rheon and Natalie Dormer would lend their voices, but the fantasy video game from the makers of ‘The Walking Dead’ adaptation have even more in store. Not only will a new trailer arrive in early December, but the game itself will be available to play one day later!

Microsoft hasn't had very much to offer on the proposed live-action 'Halo' TV series executive produced by Steven Spielberg, only that it would likely debut in fall 2015 to complement the released of the gaming' series fifth installment 'Guardians.' Now, we have at least some idea how the two properties might interact, and whose story the 'Halo' TV series might tell.

J.J. Abrams Says the 'Star Trek' Video Game Was a Huge Disappointment and Hurt the Movie

We, as fans, can admit that the 'Star Trek' video game released this summer, pretty much sucked. Critics were also not kind, with IGN saying "there isn't a scrap of imagination or originality in this whole thing, and it's a flat-out waste of the source material."
In general, video games based on movies are not very good, and while fans and critics may admit that, you traditionally don't ever hear the director of the movie bashing the video game adaptation. But, J.J. Abrams has come out and said he was "emotionally hurt" by how terrible the 'Star Trek' game was and believes that it's quality (or lack thereof) hurt his movie too.

There is no successful franchise that Hollywood won't try to exploit (see: almost every single summer movie), so it's always seemed a little weird that one of the biggest franchises out there - Rockstar's 'Grand Theft Auto' - has yet to make the leap to the big screen. Well, it's not for a lack of trying, but Hollywood can try all it wants: there will never be a 'Grand Theft Auto' movie.
