Gremlins might be getting the reboot treatment, Cuarón's Gravity gets a release date, Dead Island: Riptide offends with crass Collector's Edition, fan campaign gets JRPG localized, the X-Men become an all-female team and the internet loses its shit, and DC Comics cancels a boatload of titles.

Redline isn’t about nothing, but it isn’t about much. Nothing stops Redline from hitting goals. Nothing stops Redline from victory. Redline is so ferocious and unwieldy that it’s too dangerous to be bound in your hands, it’s too fast for the qualms of plot or logic. It can’t slow down. The wonderful thing about animation is that it’s a world from scratch, created only by the pen instead of constructs of likelihood. Redline is its own universe, and it rockets through it so fast you’ll miss planets if you blink.
