Natailie Dyer from Stranger Things is the star of a short film called “After Her”, which subverts the Lost Girl trope into something more interesting. According to writer-director Migliori via Gizmodo:
I was interested in making a short that confronts the perversion of the “missing girl story”, in both film and in reality. I wanted to create something meditative and personal with a small group of collaborators; I shot most of the film myself, including the VFX, which were hand-done in my parents’ basement.
I’m from Rhode Island and grew up reading Lovecraft, and was incredibly inspired by his worlds, his characters, and their maddening search for the bigger picture, the great answers. As Callum searches for Hailey, the alluring missing girl of his past, his expectations get challenged. His journey spans fertile woods, deep caves and fallopian tunnels. He grows to realise that he is a passenger, not a pioneer, while she is the leader, not the victim.
Eugene Lee Yang of the Try Guys, a YouTube star, comes out as gay in this stunningly choreographed music video with original music. Via Newsweek:
YouTube content group the Try Guys regularly upload hilariously entertaining videos on the social platform. However, on Saturday their feed took a more personal approach to their latest creation.
One member of the four-man group, Eugene Lee Yang, wrote and directed a new music video to address his sexual orientation. While Yang has previously stated that he doesn’t identify as fully straight, this is the first time the content creator has gone completely candid with who he is in front of the channel’s nearly 6 million subscribers.
As Yang navigates through the set of the video, changing into various vibrant outfits, the actor addresses numerous roadblocks that could hinder someone from fully coming out. From a conservative upbringing to judgmental religious encounters, Yang explains why he withheld his truth from the world.
“I created this music video as my personal way of coming out as a proud gay man who has many unheard, specific stories to tell,” Yang tweeted Saturday in conjunction with his video.
Elden Ring is a collaboration between George RR Martin, Hidetaka Miyazaki and the developer From Software, who made games such as Dark Souls. Perhaps predictably, fans of GRRM haven’t been happy at this news–they want him to finish Winds of Winter. GRRM has always been involved with lots of projects all at once though. Many celebrities are. We’ll get the book when we get the book. In the meantime, this game looks like it’s going to be awesome.
Doom Eternal was announced at E3 with a new trailer and Doomguy now has traversal abilities and new maps built on this additional mobility. Via PC Gamer:
There can be no argument that the life of the Doom Slayer has been filled with countless badass moments, but his most badass moment of all happens in Doom Eternal. You can watch it in the video embedded above or here on YouTube.
The Doom Slayer has fought his way across Phobos, cutting demons open with his chainsaw, roasting them with his new shoulder-mounted flame-thrower, and firing his grappling hook into cacodeamons and swinging around the joint like an ultra-violent Spider-Man. But now he needs to leave Phobos and get his ass to Mars, which has been torn up so badly the core of the planet is exposed.
In order to get to Mars, he needs to reach a escape pod located on a chunk of the base that’s floating through space, far from Phobos. So The Slayer stalks over to a massive, mounted cannon. He lifts the hatch and pushes the heavy torpedo out of the way with his boot. Then he climbs inside the cannon and fires himself through space like a goddamn human rocket, smashing through the outer wall of the base like a bunker buster.
