Coffee Time News 13/05/14

By Joe Strange

Welcome to a new feature here at Axby (I know, we’re full of them, anybody would think we’re a new site or something.

Every morning I sit down with a coffee and flash through a couple of media sites looking for news, announcements or anything else that takes my fancy. I realised that this was a missed opportunity; not everyone works nights and has the days free to wander the internet for little slices of the news pie.

So my aim with this Coffee Time News is to lay out a buffet of links to anything that I think might be relevant to our sight, and our readers. So let’s get on with it shall we?

Film

Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow has gotten a heap of features and an extended trailers. Do you like tiny men in exosuits trying to cheat death by reliving it? Head over to Screenrant.

Aaron Taylor Johnson (Kick Ass, Godzilla and soon Avengers 2) has been written into the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Whether he had any say in the matter is still up in the air.

The Den of Geek was privy to an exclusive poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction. Ever wanted to see Optimus Prime playing rodeo on a dinosaur? Of course you have.

Xmen Days of Future Past continues its publicity rampage with a featurette for Magneto and his powers, complete with questions as to why he doesn’t just crush all the sentinels immediately.

Amongst the rumours of Hugh Jackman hanging up his claws and his rad hairstyle, it’s been announced that the next Wolverine film and the next Xmen film (Apocalypse) will shoot back to back.

Television

Unsurprisingly, the internet is reeling from Sunday’s Game of Thrones, and with England getting the episode last night we’ve had another surge of feelings over The Laws of Gods and Men. Check out a recap here. (No book spoilers though, so you Watchers are safe.)

Community fans, I’m still wearing black at the news of the outright cancellation of Greendale and the gang, I know it’s painful but here’s a word for our man Harmon himself explaining his view of the situation.

Yesterday I had a Heroes Reborn synopsis for you, in keeping with our recent superhero trend, I’d like to share the new poster and synopsis for Captain America spinoff Agent Carter.

Keeping it in the superhero family, DC have also released news on a first look, this time for their new series about the Flash, whose character first showed up in Arrow (which you should watch, I mean Green Arrow is no Hawkeye, but he’ll suffice.)

Fans of both Disney’s Frozen and ABC’s fantasy series Once Upon a Time should be happy to know that Elsa will soon be making an appearance.

Games

Students from the Academy of Arts in San Francisco (in partnership with 2K) have made three Borderlands shorts full of that good claptrap humour. 

In that light, Borderlands 2 for the Vita has a UK release date; It’s May 28th

Ever wonder what Skyrim would look like with more Godzilla?

Did you know there’s a new Pokemon game coming out? Did you know it was a remake? Here’s Nintendo Life’s what to expect from Omega Ruby and Alpha Papa Sapphire. Still no signs of a Majora’s Mask remake though.
