Coffee Time News 16/05/14

It’s Friday everyone, so here’s a bit of news to send you off for the weekend,


Harrison Ford is being sought out for another 80’s reboot, this time its Blade Runner.

Universal sets a 2016 release date for a secret project from Legendary, could it be the adaption of epic space game series Mass Effect? Or something else entirely?

Did you know Kenneth Branagh is working on a live action Cinderella with a heap of star power? Well here’s a teaser trailer.



From the creator of Veronica Mars comes a new Zombie TV Show, IZombie, about a medical student turned Zombie who has to blend in with the living crowd. Not sick to death of Zombies yet? Check out the synopsis here.

Having apparently not milked their cash cow (cash brothers and assisting trench coat donning angel) the CW are taking a shot at another Supernatural spin off after the lukewarm reception of Bloodlines.

And the big reveal today I guess, The Flash, which we had a teaser for yesterday, now has a 5 minute trailer. Get a feel for the sense of the show, which doesn’t seem too unlike its big brother Arrow, which you should definitely watch if you haven’t already.


First up, today, being the 16th, marks the release of the second Game for Gold on XBL for May, it’s Saints Row the Third. It’s free, so you might as well buy it and download it when the time suits you.

My favourite piece of gaming news of the day, Far Cry 4 has official box art and release date; November 18th. It’ll be based in the Himalayan mountains, and focus on deposing a tyrannical leader in the region of Kyrat. As long as there’s another bow, I’m totally game.

Grand Theft Auto Online is still going strong with the updates, did you know? Despite its teething issues… And then some, Rockstar are rolling out the updates. The newest one, the High Life update, has a whole host of new features, as well as triple XP all weekend.


So that’s the news for the week, keep checking for more news, features, comics and general ranting, see you breifly on Sunday for our Lazy Sunday Lists, and I’ll be back on Monday with more Coffee Time News.
