Coffee Time News 10/03/15

Trailers for The Flash, IZombie, Game of Thrones and Tomorrowland as well as Arkham Knight News and a new way to enjoy indie games.

Film

Disney’s Tomorrowland has a second trailer out now, brought to you by Brad Bird, who’s responsible for The Incredibles and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, the second trailer focusses that little bit more on the forces acting against George Clooney and his new pin-toting protege. Also, is Hugh Laurie going to be the villain? I hope not.

In a Q and A on Facebook, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn (who’s currently working on a sequel) has claimed that Marvel won’t be at this year’s Comic-con, and has said that ‘Marvel isn’t going so I’m not sure I will either.’. Which is understandable, Marvel has only less than two months until Age of Ultron releases, and they’ve caused such a stir with the recent announcements (All of Phase 3, the Sony/Spiderman deal) that they could be hard pressed to find anything mind blowing. And it gives the little guys a chance I suppose.

The star of the Robocop remake, Joel Kinnaman has confirmed his role as Rick Flagg in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, after more than a few actors had been pinned for the role including Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal to varying degrees.

Television

Trailers galore in today’s TV news: check out a promotional run down video of the episodes of The Flash leading up to March 31st, quick glimpses of returning villains, story lines, Cisco. But also, our first proper look at Mark Hamill as The Trickster. Flash returns next Tuesday, March 17th.

Then, if you still watch TV like a regular person (A regular person from the nineties) you can stay tuned on the CW to catch the first episode of IZombie, and a new trailer is available here. It shows off some more of the action scenes we’ll be seeing as well as (like the Tomorrowland trailer,) some of the forces Liv will be facing.

And finally, Game of Thrones has a second trailer in ‘The Gods Demand Justice’. It focusses on Daenerys’ rise to power, and her plan to ‘destroy the wheel’ of the 7 kingdoms.

Games

Have you ever wanted a collectors edition of Papers Please? (James, I’m looking at you.) What about Hotline Miami? Well the guys over at Gamer’s Edition work with the gaming community and developers to create cool, interesting collectables for indie games. They’re taking orders now, so get placing!

Due for release next Tuesday, episode 2 of Tales from the Borderlands is titled ‘Atlas Mugged’, which aside from being an excellent pun, gives you a bit of a clue as to what’s going on with some of the other gun manufacturers on Pandora (Ah, Jakobs, you were the best) and you can see a new trailer for it here. It’s really great that Telltale have breathed a bit more life into the character models that previously merely stand around, giving you missions.

Players of Batman Arkham City had a great surprise at the games’ finale, but it’s left some wondering about the fate of the villains in Batman Arkham Knight. (I’m being intentionally vague for spoilers sake) Well, spoilers ahead, but this should settle some nerves, as well as a few bets.
