Twin Peaks show in trouble, A Batman cameo in the Suicide Squad and PS Plus is free this weekend.

Film

While John Williams will be coming out of his semi retirement to score Star Wars The Force Awakens, he won’t be scoring the recently announced spin off Rogue One, that job, it seems, will be going to Godzilla (2014) composer Alexandre Desplat.

Batman could be making a cameo appearance in Suicide Squad, according to a rumour from Latino review, who are usually on the money, Batman will be a person of interest for the government, supposedly he’s a bit of a mystery, with the only person who’s had any exposure to him being the Joker.

Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast has been set for release on the 17th of March 2017, and will begin filming later this year. The film will in fact be a musical, which will be a departure from Disney’s recent remakes (such as Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland) and will include songs from the 1992 original as well as new ones.

Television

Game of Thrones gets another new teaser in preparation for April 12th. This one focusses on the mother of Dragons, (among other things).

David Lynch has come out and said that there are ‘complications’ holding up the Twin Peaks series, though Co-creator Mark Frost says that it isn’t funding… What could it be?

That’s put an end to one mystery then: the Sherlock Christmas special will actually be taking place in Victorian England, and the set pictures we’ve seen aren’t from some elaborate Holmes-ian ruse.

Games

We always like fund-raising stories here at Axby, and this weekend Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon raised over £170,000 for charity. Top work fella.

To celebrate the release of Battlefield Hardline this weekend, Playstation plus will be free for just under 72 hours from Friday 20th to Sunday the 22nd.

A spiritual sequel to Banjo Kazooie  is heading our way, and will be partially funded by Kickstarter, check over here for more details on project Ukulele.
