Coffee Time News 13/03/15

Frozen 2 is announced, Fantastic Four Costumes and Uncharted 4 has been delayed.

Film

Well, it’s official, for all you parents, uncles, aunts, anyone who has anything to do with children, get ready, because Frozen 2 has been announced. You thought it would end with Frozen Fever? Alas, no. Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee will be returning and Disney gave the good news at a shareholder’s meeting yesterday. Kristen Bell has confirmed her return on Twitter, as well as the return of the voice of Olaf the Snowman Josh Gad.

We’ve seen very little of the Fantastic Four so far, besides the very Interstellar-y trailer, but now we’ve got a better look at the heroes’ containment suits, all aside from Ben Grimm’s Thing, which hasn’t been seen besides those few shots in the aforementioned trailer.

The first Star Wars spinoff has been titled Rogue One, and will star Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) while little else is known right now, we do know it will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and it will arrive next winter, December 16th 2016 to be precise. It’s also been confirmed that Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick, Brother’s Bloom) will direct episode 8.

Television

Image time for Game of Thrones, get your first look at Arya’s new Braavosi outfit, as well as the first official look at the Sand Snakes (the daughters of fan favourite Oberyn Martell) who are as dangerous as their father (though, perhaps not so prone to the eye gouging…)

A promo for Tuesday’s episode of Agents of SHIELD, the show has really picked up since the inclusion of the Inhumans, and last week’s episode settled a lot of my own doubts about the show, but a whole can of worms is about to be opened for Coulson as Cal (Skye’s father) is back, and out for revenge. 

Here’s something pretty interesting, UK network the BBC is creating a 90 minute piece on the creation and social effects of Grand Theft Auto, to be aired on BBC2.

Games

Ubisoft Montreal is holding a closed alpha for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege, it’s only on PC and requires a Uplay account but if that still whets your appetite then click over to here for more information.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch which is hilarious fun, is coming to WiiU and Xbox One this summer according to developer Young Horse. The game is absolutely mental, it sees you play as an octopus, who, well, has a family and has spent the last few years of his life pretending to be a human. It’s a great example of a well written comedy coinciding with funny gameplay, but it still hits you in the heart once or twice.

Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End has been delayed. The game’s directors have said that the game was more ambitious than they had previously hoped, and to keep the standard of story telling that Naughty Dog is known for (Crash Bash had the best narrative) and have delayed it a few months. It didn’t have a solid date before, so expect it in spring 2016.
