Video Game Description: The year is 2084. If you somehow survived the Nanophage, odds are you were killed in the War. Those who live have turned to drugs, VR, neural implants— anything to distract themselves from this new reality.

In this future, anything you think, feel, or remember can be used against you in a court of law.

When you receive a mysterious message from your estranged son, a high-level engineer for the almighty Chiron Corporation, you journey to the seedy Class C slums of Krakow to investigate. But as you hack into the unstable minds of criminals and victims to look for clues, you are forced to relive their darkest fears. How far will you go to discover the truth?

Co-written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton ("Short Term 12"), the biopic "The Glass Castle" is based on Jeannette Walls' memoir of the same name and it chronicles the nomadic and dysfunctional family life of her childhood.

Walls is an author and journalist, widely known for her contributions to the gossip column "Scoop" at MSNBC.com, as well as Esquire, New York magazine and USA Today. In 2007 she dedicated herself to writing full-time. She also wrote "Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel" based on the life of her grandmother in 2009, and The Silver Star in 2013.

The film stars Brie Larson, Ella Anderson, Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts, Max Greenfield, Chandler Head and Sarah Snook. In 2012 it was announced that Jennifer Lawrence would star in the lead role, but in 2015 Lawrence left the project, which wasn't moving forward at the time, and was replaced by Larson.

"The Glass Castle" opened in theaters on August 11th, 2017 and received generally mixed reviews from critics, who praised the cast, but took issue with the misguided handling of the source material. It finished 9th at the box-office, grossing $4.9 million from 1,461 theaters.
