Watch: Dolph Lundgren takes over for Arnold in Kindergarten Cop 2

Kindergarten Cop 2 won’t have Arnold Schwarzenegger or a theatrical release, but the direct-to-video movie will still feature a recognizable action star and stay close to the original comedy’s entertaining premise. In a new trailer, we see Dolph Lundgren play an FBI agent who is completely out of his element when he is sent to go undercover as a kindergarten teacher.

Lundgren’s character, Agent Reed, ends up with his teaching assignment after sensitive data goes missing that he needs to recover. He’ll find multiple challenges along the way, from managing the liberal school environment to coping with a wild bunch of kids. The little ones do look pretty out of control; in fact, one boy can even be seen peeing in a trash can during the trailer, so it’s hard to blame Agent Reed for describing them as “little monsters.”

Kindergarten Cop 2 comes more than 25 years after the original. The first, which stars Schwarzenegger as a police detective trying to catch a drug dealer, was released in 1990. Like his fellow actor, Lundgren is the prototypical action hero, having starred in films like Rocky IVMasters of the Universe, multiple installments in the Expendables series, and more. With the comedy centering a tough guy meeting his match in a group of little kids, Lundgren is ideal for the role.

While Kindergarten 2 joins a number of direct-to-video movies that the Swedish actor has starred in recently, he’ll return to the big screen again soon. Not only did Lundgren have a cameo in the Coen brothers’ Hail, Caesar!, he’ll appear in The Expendables 4 when it releases in 2017, among others.

Kindergarten Cop 2 was directed by Don Michael Paul (Jarhead 2: Field of Fire) and co-stars Bill Bellamy (White Collar). The movie will be available on DVD and Digital HD on May 17.

A special group of artists have given Honor’s MagicWatch 2 the style it needed
honor magicwatch 2 special artist edition news tsai close

Honor has given the MagicWatch 2 smartwatch something it really needed -- individuality. It has achieved this by partnering with several artists to design stunning new watch faces and straps, edging the wearable away from the relatively plain looks of the standard model, and into something more unique and desirable.

There are six artists working with Honor on the project, and perhaps the most well known is Jacky Tsai, who created the iconic floral skull used by designer Alexander McQueen. For the Honor MagicWatch 2, Tsai has created a similarly eye-catching Floral Horse design, which extends from the watch face on to the black strap, and looks fantastic. He has also penned a stunning, very colorful version called Shanghai Tang Cafe, where the strap plays a more important role in the overall design.

Shadowkeep expansion leak takes Destiny 2 players back to the moon
destiny 2 shadowkeep expansion leak reveal dataminer re

Diligent data miners have unearthed some news out of Bungie’s space epic ahead of a livestream that the company planned for this week. ResetEra user Starset shared that Destiny 2 has an upcoming expansion called Shadowkeep and takes the loot shooter experience to the moon, an area featured prominently in the first Destiny. There's always a chance the leaked data could be outdated material that has changed shape over time, so treat this as a rumor.

The promotion artwork that was uncovered by the data miner shows off a red fortress of some kind on the surface of the moon with Earth in the background. It says players will “become a slayer of nightmares” as they journey into an enemy citadel to face shadows that descend upon the moon. Per usual, there will be a physical collector’s edition for the expansion and it should include a new annual pass.
