Jackie Chan Still Kicks Ass At 63 In 'The Foreigner' Trailer
I enjoyed seeing that Jackie Chan still does some of his own stunts, especially the closed-quarters combat in The Foreigner . The film is all set to release on 13 October and will be going up against biopic Marshall and horror film Happy Death Day .

There's no word yet on whether the buyer wants Romero to sign the diskettes, but given the selling price I'd say it's the least he could do. Romero writes, "The version is 1.7 (the first DOOM 2 version.) No box included". The auction drew 84 bids from 31 distinct bidders over three days, ending this morning with a winning bid of $3,150.

The condition of the set is "very good", with no defects other than natural wear of the glue that holds the labels to the disks. The disks also won't include the original box. But 60 bids later, it has hit the $900 mark, with the auction scheduled to end at 6:13 a.m. PT / 9:13 a.m. ET tomorrow. Swoop in and neglect to pay your mortgage for a couple of months and you could be lucky enough to own a bit of gaming history.
