A ‘Vertigo’ Video Game, Inspired By the Alfred Hitchcock Movie, is Somehow On the Way

Alfred Hitchcock‘s classic film Vertigo was released in 1958 – the same year one of the earliest officially recognized video games, called Tennis for Two, was released. It took 63 years, but a Vertigo video game is now on the way and is set to be released later this year. But players won’t play as Jimmy Stewart’s retired police detective character from the movie: despite the title, this game is only inspired by Hitchcock’s film and will not be a direct adaptation of it. Check out a teaser trail...

‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Reignites the Pandemic Box Office, ‘Cruella’ Follows With Spotty Opening

A Quiet Place Part II made a lot of noise at the box office this weekend. The John Krasinski-directed horror sequel shattered box office expectations with a record-breaking pandemic-time haul, but it was aided in part by the No. 2 performer, Cruella. However, there was a wide gap between A Quiet Place Part II and Cruella, suggesting that Disney’s hybrid release on both Disney+ and in theaters may have hindered the Disney prequel’s theatrical performance.
