Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS, featuring products from the United States, Japan, China, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.

    Competitive gaming -- eSports -- has been around for ages but has never before seen the growth and popularity it sees today. What started out as local LAN parties evolved into large-scale internet play, ultimately becoming a mind sport and an activity that can make the best players rich (the highest-paid eSports "athlete" so far is DotA 2 player KuroKy, born Kuro Takhasomi, with more than $4 million in winnings to date) and one that you can place bets on at Betway Thailand and other bookmakers online. eSports as we know it was born in South Korea in the late 1990s / early 2000s, becoming the first truly 21st-century sport. Since then, eSports have grown exponentially, becoming a popular and seriously funded activity. There are many titles with eSports potential -- pretty much every major game developer hopes to break into this
