We're now well into the new month, and for PlayStation Plus members, that means there are free games to grab if you haven't already done so. While this month's offerings can't live up to last month's killer lineup, players will find plenty of free fun in April.Leading the pack is the often-overlooked Mad Max, an open-world game about building a destructive car and taking out apocalyptic marauders. In GameSpot's Mad Max review, Peter Brown came away unsatisfied with the ground combat, but thoroughly enjoyed bashing up enemies while behind the wheel of his "Magnum Opus."The second-biggest game in this month's PS Plus lineup is TrackMania Turbo, which also puts you behind the wheel of a car, but with very different goals from Mad Max. Your job in this arcade racer is to reach the finish line on gravity-defying tracks in as short a time as possible. It's also compatible with PSVR, in case you have a need for speed.Thanks to PlayStation's Cross Buy functionality, three of the other games also run on PS4. First is In Space We Brawl, a multiplayer twin-stick shooter that also works on PS3. Next is the side-scrolling beat-'em-up 99Vidas, which plays on PS3 and PS Vita as well as PS4. Then there's Q*Bert: Rebooted, which is compatible with all three PlayStation platforms, but unfortunately isn't very good. Finally, PS3 owners get Toy Home, a charming, colorful racing game.All of these games are available to download for free from the PlayStation Store through May 1. And don't forget, this is the final year that PS3 and Vita games will be offered through PS Plus. Meanwhile, we now know what May's PS Plus games will be.April 2018 Free PS Plus GamesPS4Mad MaxTrackMania TurboIn Space We Brawl (Cross Buy with PS3)99Vidas (Cross Buy with PS3 and PS Vita)Q*Bert: Rebooted (Cross Buy with PS3 and PS Vita)PS3In Space We Brawl (Cross Buy with PS4)Toy Home99Vidas (Cross Buy with PS4 and PS Vita)Q*Bert: Rebooted (Cross Buy with PS4 and PS Vita)PS Vita99Vidas (Cross Buy with PS3 and PS4)Q*Bert: Rebooted (Cross Buy with PS3 and PS4)Info from Gamespot.com

Season 3 of Fortnite: Battle Royale is winding down, but it's not too late to still complete its Battle Pass challenges. Fortnite's Week 4 challenges posed to be tricky, but with the help of a map, its main hassle--tracking down ice cream trucks--isn't all that tough..The full list of challenges is outlined below; one requires you getting the right weapon and utilizing it efficiently (dealing a specific amount of damage with a sniper rifle), while another has you tracking down chests in the Flush Factory or supply drops around the map. There are two in particular that you might need some help with.The first of these is not labeled as Hard; you're told to visit five different ice cream trucks. These are scattered around the map--there are more than five in total, with a handful located right inside major locations like Tomato Town, Pleasant Park, and Retail Row. Others are in less obvious locations, though you can track them all down with this map shared by Reddit user imkairu.What is labeled as Hard is the challenge that reads, "Search between a Vehicle Tower, Rock Sculpture, and a Circle of Hedges." That somewhat vague clue is pointing you toward a point in the southeast corner of the map, in the G9 section. It's just on the edge of some water--you can see it in this screenshot from Reddit user __Kaneda__, or see the map they provided here.You can check out all of the week 4 challenges below. Keep in mind that, despite being added weekly, you have the entirety of Season 3 to finish these out. That means you can also go back to complete previous weekly challenges. Week 5's challenges are now available.Weekly challenges are only available to those who own the new Season 3 Battle Pass, which costs 950 V-Bucks. It expands the number of optional tasks you're given in Battle Royale and allows you to unlock more items like outfits, gliders, and emotes. The Season 3 Battle Pass also includes new types of items, such as loading screens and Back Bling. Check out our gallery of Battle Pass rewards for a look at everything you can get.Fortnite: Battle Royale Week 4 ChallengesDeal damage with Sniper Rifles to opponents (500) -- 5 Battle StarsSearch Chests in Flush Factory (7) -- 5 Battle StarsSearch Supply Drops (3) -- 5 Battle StarsVisit different Ice Cream Trucks (5) -- 5 Battle StarsHard: Search between a Vehicle Tower, Rock Sculpture, and a Circle of Hedges (1) -- 10 Battle StarsHard: Trap Eliminations (1) -- 10 Battle StarsHard: Eliminate opponents in Tomato Town (3) -- 10 Battle Stars Info from Gamespot.com

On the April 24 episode of WWE Smackdown, Big Cass attacked Daniel Bryan from behind. The audience never saw the actual attack. We just saw the immediate aftermath, when Bryan was rolling around on the floor, and the post-aftermath, when Bryan appeared outside the locker room with ice bag taped to his left arm.Three years ago, this entire sequence would have been handled differently. The actual beatdown would have been filmed, and we would have witnessed Bryan slammed into furniture, walls, and nearby objects--similar to what Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn did to Shane McMahon, or what AJ Styles did to Shane McMahon, or what Kane did to Shane McMahon. But instead, WWE left this beatdown to the imagination. And that's a smart move, considering who would be on the receiving end of it.Bryan, after a three-year layoff from active competition, is back as a full-time performer. That exile was not his decision; WWE was concerned (for reasons both personal and PR-minded) that Bryan would suffer long-term physical damage from his career, were he to continue. He had multiple concussions, many of which Bryan concealed from WWE's doctors. He had lesions on his brain. He suffered from seizures. And despite being told, multiple times by the WWE brass, to slow down and not take so many risks in the ring, he ignored that advice and continued using suicide dives and his diving headbutt--the same diving headbutt that Chris Benoit used as a finisher, week in and week out, before killing his wife, son, and himself. It's the same diving headbutt that permanently injured Dynamite Kid, who's now confined to a wheelchair. Bryan, in other words, couldn't be trusted to care of himself.But now, against all likelihood, Bryan is back, with doctors' approval. And it seems that this time, he's taking people's advice seriously, both in the way he delivers moves and in the way he takes them. There are no more suicide dives to the outside of the ring. There are no more flying headbutts off the top rope. And several of his signature moves have been slightly altered to make them safer.Take, for example, his corner drop kicks. Pre-retirement Bryan would finish his delivery with a shoulder roll. Occasionally, he put his hand down to soften the impact. But more often, he simply took the impact directly on his upper body, especially if he over-corrected.At Wrestlemania 34, post-retirement Bryan delivered this move by holding onto the ropes and deliberately planting his hand. The result was a flip; although the signature move is slower than what we remembered, it's a lot safer. And it's better to have Bryan going at 80% speed than not going at all.There have been a couple of questionable booking decisions. On the March 20 episode of Smackdown before Wrestlemania, Bryan wasn't protecting himself on the corner dropkicks very well and nearly landed on his neck. Shinsuke Nakamura delivered a Shinkasa to the back of Bryan's head on the April 10 episode of Smackdown--mere months after Paige's career ended from an errant, blind kick.On the whole, however, Bryan is moving in the right direction, and the other WWE superstars can also learn from his example. There are a handful common sense adjustments to consider. Maybe suicide dives should be a PPV-only type move. Maybe WWE can bring back razor blades to cause bleeding, instead of deliberately elbowing people in the head. The debate between either wrestling the risk-taking indie style or the safer, softer WWE style is a false dilemma. There's a compromise between those two extremes. Bryan is trying and thus far succeeding at finding it.Info from Gamespot.com

In our God of War review, Peter Brown called it "one of the best-looking console games ever released, with every breathtaking environment and mythical character exhibiting impressive attention to detail and beautifying flourishes aplenty." But if you want to see what it took to create that final, polished vision, The Art of God of War presents an inside look at the sketches, models, and paintings used as reference to create the game.The recently released, 224-page book features a behind-the-scenes glimpse at God of War's artistic creation and also includes commentary from Sony Santa Monica. You can see a few samples in the images below of what the book has to offer, including final art for the World Serpent, Jörmungandr, and rough sketches of the game's enemies.The Art of God of War is on sale now, and the book retails for $40/£33.50 (though at the time of this publishing, Amazon is selling the physical version of the book for $24 in the US).Some links to supporting retailers are automatically made into affiliate links, and GameSpot may receive a small share of those sales.Info from Gamespot.com

Mobile game versions of everything from Pokemon to Fortnite to PUBG have proven to be massive successes, and developer Jam City is hoping Harry Potter can be the next franchise to successfully make that transition. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, a new free-to-play game, is out now on iOS and Android devices.Hogwarts Mystery is set years before the events of the main novels. It takes place in the 1980s, shortly after Voldemort is temporarily vanquished but still years before Harry Potter himself heads to Hogwarts. Despite that, it does feature voicework by many of the actors from the movies, such as Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore), Maggie Smith (Professor McGonagall), Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick), Sally Mortemore (Madam Irma Pince), Gemma Jones (Madam Pomfrey), and Zoe Wanamaker (Madam Hooch).The game allows you to create your own wizard and attend Hogwarts, even joining one of the four houses. You'll go to classes and learn to cast spells and create potions, and generally do what you'd expect a Hogwarts student to do. It's a free download on both the iOS App Store and Google Play.If this doesn't sound like your cup of magical tea, it's actually one of two Harry Potter mobile games that we know is on the way. Pokemon Go developer Niantic is at work on Wizards Unite, which involves exploring the real world to collect power-ups and defend key points. Publisher Warner Bros. has suggested a Harry Potter game is also in development for consoles, but no official details have been shared about that as of yet.Info from Gamespot.com

Batman Ninja is one of the most unique takes on Batman we've ever seen. Although it was produced by Warner Bros., the movie was primarily created by an entirely Japanese team, including director Junpei Mizusaki and character designer Takashi Okazaki (famous for creating the equally awesome Afro Samurai). The movie sends Batman and many of his allies and enemies back in time to feudal Japan, where they battle for the fate of history.Often when Japanese anime is localized for Western audiences, fans prefer the original Japanese version with English subtitles, rather than a "dubbed" version with English-language voice actors. With Batman Ninja, which is out digitally this week, it's not that simple. GameSpot chatted recently with the English language version's producers and writers, Leo Chu and Eric Garcia, to find out why."The Japanese version is different," Chu said. "All the visuals are exactly the same in the movie, but the dialogue is maybe 90% different.""Some scenes are actually absolutely the same, and then some scenes just didn't quite make sense to us," Garcia said. "We're just like okay, this one we should change."Chu and Garcia said they didn't even have a general outline of Batman Ninja's plot--much less a detailed script--throughout the movie's production, including while they wrote the English language version. That stemmed from the differences between Western and Japanese animation processes, they said."[In Japanese animation], the writing and acting typically come at the end of the anime process, where in the Western process, the writing comes at the beginning, because the anime is so art and visually driven," Chu said. "You start getting storyboards and animation before you know exactly what the story is, so a lot of our job was trying to cobble it together and figure out how pieces fit together and what people could be saying.""The Japanese process is based on more like manga," Garcia said. "Manga's just visual storytelling. There isn't even that much dialogue." At some point, they did receive a rough, literal translation of the Japanese script, but it was only six pages long, and most of it was not usable."The literal translation doesn't really service the story the way the American audience would understand, and some of the jokes just didn't translate at all," Garcia said. They also received storyboards from the Japanese artists, though they were often so rough that it was difficult to tell which characters were which, much less piece together a comprehensive idea of what was going on in the movie. Often they'd have to go back months after writing something and redo it when they received more context or information about the scene."It was kind of coming through in pieces," Garcia said."The translation was literally six sheets of paper, but just the dialogue translated very roughly into English," Chu said. "A lot of the time, you could not tell what was going on...you look at it and it's like, 'That is either Nightwing or Red Robin, I have no idea.'""We were guessing, yeah," Garcia added.On the bright side, the whole unorthodox process gave them the freedom to mold this into the Batman story they envisioned, and both Warner Bros. and the Japanese team were happy to oblige. "Warner Brothers was very, very hands off," Chu said. "They really wanted the Japan team to make it very authentically anime, and our job was to make it authentically Batman. And there was an enormous amount of trust from the Japan team on us. They were just like, 'Go do your thing.'"This wasn't even a new experience for Chu and Garcia. They'd worked within similar frameworks before, on the Studio Ghibli film My Neighbors the Yamadas, and elsewhere."My first exposure to the anime process was working with [Hayao] Miyazaki on Spirited Away," Chu said. "It was just very interesting watching him do the story. Like, he kind of thinks up the story, and then you don't really write it, you start sort of thumb-nailing out like, what key visual moments might be, and then you start storyboarding and then you start animating."And I was like, 'OK, but what are you animated to?' He's like, 'Oh, we just make the mouths move.' And then I was like, 'But is there dialogue?" And he's like, 'No, no. We add the dialogue at the end.' And you're like, 'Oh, that's really weird.' And people always complain about, 'Oh, I'm going to watch the original Japanese version with English sub, not the English dub version,' but the truth is the Japanese version is dubbed as well."For those who want the original Japanese version, it's available right now alongside the English version. But don't refer to either one as a dub--unlike with most anime, the Japanese and English versions of Batman Ninja were developed separately but simultaneously. And given how different they apparently are, it may well be worth watching both versions. Info from Gamespot.com

Yet another Stephen King book is being turned into a movie. The Amazing Spider-Man writer James Vanderbilt will pen the screenplay an adaptation of King's The Long Walk, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Originally published by King in 1979 under a pseudonym, The Long Walk takes place in a dystopian America where 100 teenagers are forced each year to walk non-stop until only one remains alive. The book focuses on a 16-year-old boy named Raymond Davis Garraty, but since no details on Vanderbilt's script are available, we don't know how the film may vary from the book.Whatever the case, it's an intriguing concept--with the characters having to deal with physical and emotional stress and exhaustion, among other things. According to THR, Frank Darabont--who made the movie versions of Stephen King books The Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption--was at one point involved in making a Long Walk movie before it fell apart.As for Vanderbilt, he wrote both The Amazing Spider-Man movies and the action film White House Down. He went on to direct the Cate Blanchett-Robert Redford drama Truth in 2014, which was his directorial debut.New Line Cinema, which was also behind King's killer clown movie It, is producing The Long Walk. There is no word yet on a release date, cast, or director, but keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.Many of King's works have been adapted into movies and TV projects. 2017 alone saw the release of It, The Dark Tower, and Gerald's Game.

Of all the Halo titles that have come out over the years, Halo Online is definitely the weirdest. Announced and released in early access in 2015, Halo Online was a Russia-only, PC-exclusive multiplayer game based on the Halo 3 engine. Back in 2016, development on the game was shut down and the game itself was shelved.However, Halo Online continued to survive outside of the control of Microsoft. Its code leaked a couple of years ago, and determined fans built a modded version of it that allowed non-Russians to play it. Called ElDewrito, it featured player-hosted servers, stat tracking, and even emblem customization. However, Microsoft has now declared that it has initiated legal action intended to prevent players from using Halo: Online's game files.The company is not targeting ElDewrito directly, since it's just a mod built on top of the game files. However, it has begun issuing DMCA notices to streaming sites showing Halo: Online in action as well as any websites hosting the game files themselves. Microsoft chose to start cracking down now because the ElDewrito modders had just recently released a brand-new, feature-rich patch, and the player base spiked in response. In fact, there are still thousands of Halo: Online players right now. And it appears that Halo developer 343 Industries recognizes the huge demand for Halo on PC."As Microsoft's need to protect its IP spun up, we reached out to members of the ElDewrito team to have an open discussion about the project and the admittedly difficult situation we all find ourselves in," it wrote in a statement. "One thing remains clear--the community really wants more Halo on PC. As we look ahead, we're very excited about the prospects of an official classic Halo experience making its way to PC and we hope to be able to partner with the ElDewrito team and broader mod and content creation community to help inform the types of experiences and features our fans desire." Although nothing has been announced yet, this at least gives a little glimmer of hope that more of the classic Halo games could make their way to PC at some point in the future. In any case, we do know that Halo 6 will almost certainly be on PC, as every Xbox-exclusive game is now released on Windows 10 as well. [News from ArsTechnica]Info from Gamespot.com

God of War is a phenomenal game that everyone should play, no question. And if you're in this article, it's probably safe to say that you're interested in playing it, if you haven't already started. But if you want to really get the most out of its stunning world and its fantastic and definitely not boring combat, then you should really consider playing in Immersive mode.You'll find an option in the game's setting menu that lets you toggle the game's HUD between Normal and Immersive mode, which removes most of the game's pop-ups, meters, compass, and icons. God of War's HUD is already quite minimal, which is great, but after finishing and playing the latter half of the game in Immersive mode, let me tell you: this is the way to experience God of War.The idea of no HUD is always a little daunting, for sure. But don't be scared! I wrote this article to assure you that it's totally viable, explain how you can parse information you need, and tell you why the things you're missing out on aren't a big deal.First of all, why do it, and what are the benefits of not getting every single little detail of information? On a superficial level, God of War is a very, very good looking game. Immersive mode makes sure the entirety of your screen can be used to appreciate the beauty of the environments, character models, and get the full impact of the game's truly impressive camera work with that one, long, 40-hour steadycam shot.On a more substantial level, being able to pay full attention to the environment without any distractions will help you with your exploration. You'll pay more attention to the details in the environment and you'll almost be guaranteed to never miss a collectible. You'll more easily notice the shine of purposely obscured items, and distinctly hear the tinkling of Odin's ravens. No alternate paths will go unnoticed, and no stray pot or wooden item will go un-smashed, because you're looking so keenly at the world, instead of the icon on a compass.But most importantly, the Immersive mode will make you better at combat. In action games, it's a common, and completely logical, tendency to always keep one eye on either your health meter, your enemy's health meter, enemy location indicators, your skill cooldowns, whatever. But that's one eye that's not actually watching the fight.Immersive mode lets you focus completely on using all of your skill to be the best fighter you can be. Hit every parry, dodge every attack, take advantage of every opening. If you're like me, and you know you have a full bar of health, you'll sometimes get a little sloppier because you know Kratos can take a few hits. But why not perform at your absolute best all the damn time? You need to set a good example for Atreus, after all. Is that enemy you're taking on a purple enemy who's supposed to be overpowered for you? Who knows, who cares? If you can beat it, then what does it matter? Free yourself from self-doubt!Now, I do recommend that on your first playthrough you should definitely spend the early hours with the default HUD just so you can get a basic feel of how combat operates, especially how the stun mechanic works. But by the time you get to the Lake of Nine and the game opens up, you should be good to go Immersive.However, if you're STILL a little scared to go on a grand adventure without all of this info, there's one thing I've been keeping from you: God of War also has a Custom HUD option which lets you toggle certain elements of the HUD on or off. But best of all, it allows you to assign some HUD options to the PS4's touchpad, meaning you can turn everything off, but take a brief look anything you want to with a gentle tap of the touchpad. So if you're finding Immersive mode hard to get used to at the beginning, give the touchpad stuff a try. Bet you forgot that function was even there!Okay, so how do you actually manage all the information you need for combat without seeing bars or indicators? Well, God of War has a bunch of in-world cues that make Immersive mode accessible and tell you literally everything you need to know. They're all pretty obvious, but let's run through them for peace of mind.Watch for enemy attack rings! If an enemy is attacking you, and there's an expanding golden ring coming from them, it means you can and should parry this attack by blocking at the last minute. If there's an expanding red ring, it means it's an unblockable attack, and you should dodge the hell out of there or get Atreus to interrupt it. The game teaches you both of these things.If you've been wailing on an enemy with light attacks or your bare fists, and see the pulsing red circle around them, it means you can execute your takedown move. Not being able to see how much stun you’re dealing to an enemy might seem like a disadvantage, especially against Revenants, who have a rapid stun recovery. But just keep in mind that if you’re looking to stun someone, you need to maintain focus on them and keep the pressure up regardless, otherwise you'll never get there.If the screen has a glowing red vignette, it means you're low on health. That's a pretty standard thing. But Atreus will also tell you as much just in case it wasn't obvious enough. If Kratos is blue and icy, it means you've been affected by frost, and your attack speed will be slowed. Poison and shock effects are also pretty obvious--you'll see the distinct colors on Kratos. You don't need to see a little icon to know you're poisoned!You also don't need the enemy indicator ring to know when you're being blindsided, just listen carefully to Atreus, because he'll tell you when you're being attacked, and from where. When he says “Watch out behind you!”, or “Fire from your right!” it's a good idea to act on that advice immediately.You see what I mean? All of that knowledge is pretty straightforward and pre-existing. They’re all things you’ll be accustomed to by the time you internalize the combat system. I’m sure you have a bunch of questions and concerns, such as: How do you know when you need to heal? Well naturally, it’s a good idea to save green gems for until you really need them, and you know that when Atreus is yelling at you and your screen is turning red, you need to find some health gems to stomp on, pronto.Now, remember when I talked about Immersive mode giving you way more awareness in combat? You’ll likely be avoiding more hits overall, which means you’ll likely have more spare health gems lying around, and as you play more you should organically get an idea of roughly how many blows you can take before hitting the red zone. Health then becomes more of a gut feeling thing. For example, if I enter a fight and am aware I’ve taken three or four hits from some Draugr, I can be pretty sure that grabbing one of those green gems will bring me back up to max health. Once the fight is over, you’ll naturally want to clean up all the pickups on the battlefield, which should put you in perfect shape for the next battle. You can check your health with the touchpad just to be sure.Things a little clearer for cooldowns on your runic weapon and talisman skills, as well as Atreus' abilities. When an ability comes off cooldown and is ready to use, there'll be a handy chime from either the left or right of the screen, where the meters would normally be. Atreus will say "I'm set! Or "Tell me when!" when his arrows are ready after using them all up. That said, it's good to keep in mind roughly how long the cooldown on your chosen abilities are (anywhere from 30-90 seconds) and keep rough track when you use it. Personally, I found myself having a lot more fun with them in Immersive because I would see myself identifying the perfect situation to use a skill before activating it (rather than noticing that it was available to use, thinking “I should use that”, and then kinda wasting it and missing out on a better opportunity moments later).The tricky one, depending on your play style, is knowing when Spartan Rage is ready to go. I typically only used Spartan Rage during boss fights or particularly large mobs, so I rarely found myself in a bad situation with it. But if you like to use it as soon as you can, as much as you can, you might want to use the custom Touchpad HUD to periodically check on the meters.Finally your compass. God of War’s open areas are not so convoluted that you’re going to need to constantly follow an objective marker to get where you need to go. Glancing at your world map in the main menu, making a note of your orientation and where your next main or side objective might be, and set off in that general direction, allowing the natural pathways and your perception of major landmarks to guide you usually enough to get you where you need to be.Okay, so how about all that sweet loot you’re going to find along your journey? In Immersive mode, most of the white highlights you pick up off the ground, and the stuff you find in chests, coffins, and on the water won’t activate a popup. But seriously, don't sweat. It’s probably either just some hacksilver, a small XP boost, or crafting materials. None of these are things you need to worry about immediately!And let’s face it--every time you come upon a weapon stall, you’re going to check in and see if you can craft or upgrade any new gear anyway. If you have the prerequisite hacksilver and crafting materials, great! And if you don’t, well, see you next time! With Immersive mode, you’ll likely be a lot more aware of hidden paths and pickups along the way, so it’s not like you’re going to miss a whole mess of stuff that's going to stop you from upgrading something, because you wouldn't have been able to anyway.Now, if you find significant items like new Runic Attacks, uncommon, legendary, or epic gear, legendary materials, Iounn Apples, or Mead Horns, a big pop-up will come up regardless, because that’s stuff that you might find useful immediately. Lore popups and new bestiary entries are pretty straightforward--You can safely assume that once you stumble upon a lore stone for Atreus to decipher, or encounter an enemy you haven’t seen before, there’ll be a fresh passage of text waiting for you to read in the main menu.Unfortunately for those of you who are super into lore, Both the loot and lore popups are things that can't be toggled individually in the custom HUD screen, and can't be assigned to the touchpad menu. You're either all in or all out. So this might have to be a personal decision based on how badly you want to read the lore immediately, and seeing a popup saying you picked up 5 hacksilver every time you smash a pot.So that’s a lot of words and time spent to assure you that, yes, playing God of War in Immersive mode can be a completely practical and good option. Again, it's something that I implore you to do because it’ll give you a greater appreciation of just how well designed its environments are for exploring, how deep and exciting combat can be, and just how stunning every facet of this game is. I wish I had done it earlier. Turn on Immersive mode in God of War. It’s the best way to play.Info from Gamespot.com

The horror movie A Quiet Place, which stars John Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt, is getting a sequel. The sequel was announced today at CinemaCon, just weeks after A Quiet Place opened to strong reviews and more than $200 million worldwide earlier this month.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount studio chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos said A Quiet Place's success was somewhat unexpected. "If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from The Office would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, 'Well, I should go work at Paramount,'" he said.Krasinski and Blunt star as parents who, along with their two children, must stay silent to avoid creatures because the world is overrun by blind monsters that track you by sound only.The movie reportedly cost $17 million to make, so the $213 million it's made worldwide means it has turned a very nice profit. For more on A Quiet Place, check out GameSpot's review.A Quiet Place was directed by Krasinski from a screenplay by Scott Beck and Brian Woods. As of yet, there is no word on if the original team is staying together for the follow-up, nor are any plot details available.Info from Gamespot.com

The Simpsons continues to set records. Fox's hit animated show has now passed Gunsmoke for the most number of episodes for a prime time scripted TV series. Sunday's episode was the show's 636th, surpassing Gunsmoke, which had 635 episodes during its 20-year run.Executive producer and showrunner Al Jean told the NY Post about the milestone, "We never dreamed we'd get this far."Gunsmoke aired from 1955 to 1975, while The Simpsons has been on TV for almost 29 years now, having debuted in December 1989.The Simpsons has generated some controversy of late regarding the character Apu and his portrayal on the show in the wake of a documentary that criticized the character. In response to this, Apu voice actor Hank Azaria has said he is willing to step aside.The Simpsons is currently in its 29th season and has already been renewed for Season 30. When The Simpsons was renewed, Fox released a statement (via Variety) quoting Homer Simpson as saying, "Take that, Gunsmoke! You lost a race you didn't even know you were running!"Info from Gamespot.com
