Many programmers associated with the Halo moniker have recently started sharing more about the franchise, particularly through the Halo Waypoint website, but Lehto chose to go all the way back to the initial Master Chief adventures and the concepts that never made it off the cutting room floor. Lehto released a couple of different weapons from an early 2000 build of the original Halo, as seen in the Twitter conversation below. Because one of the weapons is truly called the “microwave rifle,” we can understand where Jotunn from Destiny 2 originates (I say in a joking sense). Which, if you’ve ever played Destiny, especially against certain Crucible players, you’ll know, is pretty much what Jotunn is.

MORTAL KOMBAT and Guy Ritchie’s Wrath of Man, starring Jason Statham, are two action-packed standouts this week. Despite receiving mixed reviews, Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat remake is unquestionably one of the most anticipated films of 2021. Mortal Kombat reimagines the original video game franchise for a new generation, fatalities and all, with a stellar and diverse cast of modern-day martial arts artists. While some fans prefer Paul W.S. Anderson’s 1995 classic, the new version contains some intriguing modifications that might pave the way for a slew of sequels and even spin-offs.
This week also sees the release of Guy Ritchie’s Wath of Man on Blu-ray. H (Jason Statham) is a cold and mysterious character who works at a cash truck company that moves hundreds of millions of dollars throughout Los Angeles every week. H goes on a spree for vengeance against people who have mistreated him after his life has been turned upside down. It’s a tried-and-true action formula, but with Ritchie at the wheel. What could possibly go wrong?
The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, Pennyworth: Season 2, Conor Allyn’s No Man’s Land, and the Criterion Collection editions of Bill Duke’s Deep Cover and Lizzie Borden’s Working Girls are among the significant releases.
