Oh, boy, this could be good. A new trailer for O Nome da Morte (or, The Name of Death) really steps up the action after a tranquil beginning. André Mattos, Matheus Nachtergaele, and Marco Pigossi star; Henrique Goldman directed. Fernando Meirelles (City of God) serves as one of the producers. It's based on the true story of Julio Santana, a notorious hit-man who claimed to have killed hundreds of people. Maybe that's why the trailer, which you can watch below, looks so chilling. The film will open in theaters in Brazil on August 9. No word on other distribution yet. … [Read more...] about O NOME DA MORTE Trailer: When Real Life Goes Haywire
12 minutes ago Nintendo has found a lot of success in its NES Classic and SNES Classic mini-consoles and, based on a recent trademark filing, it looks like they may try to continue that trend with the Nintendo 64. Over on Japanese Nintendo, they're reporting that Nintendo Japan has applied for an "N64" trademark. According to the trademark, which was included but untranslated, the filing has to do with everything from software to a game machine, joysticks and the like. To be clear, a trademark filing does not always lead to a final product in this business, but it stands to reason that Nintendo would like to keep a good thing going. Then again, this is the company that decided a proper eShop wasn't worth the effort on the Switch, so we're not even going to pretend to understand how Nintendo makes business decisions. Following recent events and considering the timing of this trademark, though, we think there's pretty good reason to assume Nintendo is at least toying with the … [Read more...] about Could A Nintendo 64 Classic Mini-Console Be On The Way?
Watchdog group Judicial Watch is in the middle of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice, where they’re seeking records of communications of FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Strzok and Page, who reportedly were having an extramarital affair, are known to have exchanged text messages including derogatory messages about Donald Trump, which led to Special Counsel Robert Mueller dismissing Strzok from the Russia investigation. The FBI now says that they will order the two to preserve agency records on their personal devices and accounts, in response to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit. Earlier this week, Judge Reggie Walton ordered the FBI to turn over 500 pages of responsive documents by June 29. According to Judicial Watch, there are more than 13,000 pages of unreleased emails between Strzok and Page sent between February 1, 2015 and December 2017. Each month, the FBI will have to turn over an additional 500 … [Read more...] about FBI to Have Strzok and Page Preserve Records on Personal Devices as Part of FOIA Lawsuit
Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old unemployed man who was ordered by a judge to stop living with his parents is giving his side of the story. Rotondo, who had to go to court after he supposedly ignored five letters from his parents to move out, said 1) he doesn’t exactly like his living situation, and 2) he doesn’t see why it should have to change. “I’m not a burden to them,” Rotondo said in court. “They don’t provide laundry or food.” He admitted that while his parents said they want him to get a job, he has not done so. Still, he insists that he makes money and would be able to move out of his own accord soon. “I’ve got a business that I get income from,” he told ABC’s Good Morning America. I can’t imagine I’m gonna be here past three months.” Another wrinkle that Rotondo added to the story is that he lost custody of his son three months ago, and is upset that his parents aren’t being … [Read more...] about ‘I Don’t Like Living Here’: 30-Year-Old Ordered by Court to Leave Parents’ House Speaks Out
