Coffee Time News 04/01/15

Limitless gets a TV series, the Arrow’s ATOM suit gets revealed and the UK get The Avengers 2 even earlier than we thought!

Film

Milla Jovovich will be starring in the In the Lost Lands, another media adaptation of one of G.R.R Martin’s (A Song of Ice and Fire) books, although unlike the Game of Thrones series, In the Lost Lands will be a full length cinema feature. The source material is actually part of a series of short stories, so it’ll be interesting to see how the powers that be tackle this.

The long discussed Star Wars spinoff that’s set for release in 2016 and that will be directed by Godzilla (2014) director Gareth Edwards has its leading lady; oscar nominated Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything). The rumoured plot that’s circulating is focussed on a group of bounty hunters (the second coolest occupation in the universe besides smugglers) who are tasked with stealing the plans to the original death star, events transpire, friendships are built, a buddy cop comedy is made. (That last part is all conjecture.)

Great news for all us UK based Avenger fans; it looks like we’ll be getting the Avengers Age of Ultron a whole 24 hours earlier than we thought! We’ll be able to see the film on the 23rd of April, while those of you across the pond will still have to wait until May 1st.

Television

Marvel’s Daredevil gets a teaser trailer ahead of its full length trailer that’s due later today. A Netflix exclusive, Daredevil will star Charlie Cox (Stardust) as the blind lawyer turned crime fighter.

Limitless, the Bradley Cooper vehicle that revolved around a drug that allowed the user to use 100% of their brain (think Lucy without the superpowers) is getting a series. The pilot, to be directed by Marc Webb (The Amazing Spiderman) will feature a character that we’ve not seen before, who’s dealings with NZT lead him to be coerced into using his enhanced intelligence to help the police for- Oh, it’s another procedural cop show with a super intelligent consultant…

Arrow‘s Ray Palmer is getting closer by the week to his dream of using a suit of armour to help his city, and today we get to see the ATOM suit in all its glory. While it’s not due to be seen in the show until episode 15, it really looks awesome, and stays away from being too similar to a similar armoured superhero by being more of a exo-suit of sorts. And those things are all the rage at the minute.

Games

Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold over 45 million copies, including Xbox One and PS4 sales. Or at least, 45 million copies have been shipped to stores. With the release of the PC version on March 24th, these figures should only go up. (Well, they’re hardly going to go down are they?)

Invigorate Gaming are a big name in the world of Destiny, holding world first status in both of the raid bosses that Bungie have rolled out, they’re a ‘deadly team’ and soon you’ll be able to get your ass kicked by them. If you’re playing Destiny on the PS4 between 7pm and 9pm EST, hit them up on Control to try and beat the best.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number released a cryptic tweet recently. all it contained was a number with an extension. Calling that number gave you a message, the word March repeated. Since the extension has no effect on the message contents people are deducing that the 10 in the extension is the date. So perhaps March 10th?
