Original ‘Zombieland’ cast buckles in for 10th-anniversary sequel

Zombieland co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick know we’re still waiting for a sequel, and they plan to deliver it soon. In fact, they have a special time in mind to release Zombieland 2: October 2019. The date would coincide with the 10-year anniversary of the 2009 comedy-horror flick starring Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and Woody Harrelson.

The writing duo — whose next film to hit theaters is this month’s Deadpool 2 — discussed their Zombieland 2 plans in a recent Vulture interview. Wernick told the publication that “the hope is that we’re shooting that thing early 2019 for an October ’19 release date,” pointing out that it would be a good anniversary present.

“We’re going on the 10th anniversary of Zombieland,” Wernick said. “Zombieland came out October of 2009. We don’t know what you get someone for their 10th anniversary, but it may be a Zombieland 2.”

As Vulture noted, “may be” is hardly a promise that the film will definitely be released when the screenwriters say. We know the situation isn’t entirely up to them, so we hope to motivate all the key players with the infinite wisdom of Tallahassee (Harrelson): “It’s time to nut up or shut up.”

After Wernick’s comments, we’re optimistic that the Zombieland 2 team is going for the first option. The writer shared that the sequel will include the original cast, which seems like a good sign that the pieces are starting to fall into place. Of course, there are still a lot of unanswered questions, and the writing partners indicated that they’re not at liberty to share too much.

Zombieland introduced a post-apocalyptic version of the United States in which an epidemic had turned regular people into violent zombies. Against this backdrop, we watched Columbus (Eisenberg), Wichita (Stone), Little Rock (Breslin), and Tallahassee come together and bond as they fought to survive. Presumably, the sequel could follow more of their adventures — hopefully with Bill Murray in tow. Surely, there are more journeys for them to embark on and Twinkies to hunt down.

If all goes as Reese and Wernick — and fans — hope, Zombieland 2 will hit theaters in October 2019.

Intel’s newest 10th-gen chips bring blazing 5.3GHz speed, trail AMD in cores

Intel has launched a new series of laptop processors, the 10th-gen Comet Lake-H chips. These are 45-watt CPUs meant for gaming laptops and powerful content creation machines.

This comes hot on the heels of an aggressive attack from its rival, AMD. The company's new Ryzen 4000 laptop processors bring eight-core, sixteen-thread power to laptops as small as the new Zephyrus G14. It's impressive.

Intel 10th-gen Core i9 to deliver 5.3GHz clock speeds, according to leaked slide
Gregory Bryant, Intel senior vice president in the Client Computing Group, displays a “Lakefield” reference board during Intel Corporation’s news event at CES 2019 on Jan. 7, 2019, in Las Vegas.

A leaked slide published by VideoCardz revealed some exciting details on Intel's upcoming 10th-gen Core i9 processors in high-performance laptops.

The processors in question are the Comet Lake-H Core i9-10980HK, and the slide indicates they can reach clock speeds up to 5.3GHz under ideal situations. Combined with an eight-core architecture that supports 16 threads, this CPUs are intended for mobile PC gamers and content creators looking for workstation-level productivity while on the go.

Intel’s 10th-gen Comet Lake chips could be more expensive than ninth-gen
Intel Announces The Xeon 5100 Microprocessor For Servers

The first hint of pricing for Intel's upcoming 10th generation of Comet Lake CPUs suggests that the new generation could be more expensive than the last across the board. Listings for a number of entry-level and midrange 10th-gen CPUs have appeared on Czech and Slovakian digital stores, and the prices are between 2 and 15 euros higher than they were at the launch of Intel's ninth-generation Coffee Lake CPUs.

Intel has been forced into an unfamiliar position in recent years. Following more than a half-decade of performance dominance in almost all sectors of the market, which let it almost arbitrarily set its prices as it wished, it found itself under threat. AMD's Ryzen processors first nipped at its heels, and then overtook it in instructions per clock and core count, leading to Intel slashing prices on its HEDT chips, and cutting them lightly on its more mainstream parts. For the first time in a long time, it was Intel that had to appeal on value, where it couldn't on performance.
