Graphic Novel Nimona to be made into a feature by Fox, Steam’s Summer Sale begins and Christopher Lee dies at 93.

Film

A couple of weeks ago we reported that Fox had the rights to the comic series Lumberjanes and were making it into a live action series, well Fox continue their search for lesser known graphic novels as they’ve just attained the rights to Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona series. (Stevenson also worked on Lumberjanes) The series stars a strong willed shape shifter who teams up with a disgraced Knight to topple a corrupt regime. It’s great, you should read it.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will be joining Paul Feig’s Female Led Ghostbusters reboot as the team’s receptionist, the role was played by Annie Potts in the original, so here’s hoping that Hemsworth rises to the occasion and gives a solid comedy performance.

Sad news now, Actor, musician and all round epic inspiration, Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93 after being admitted to Hospital with respiratory problems. Lee was an iconic actor who is famed for his roles in the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and James Bond franchises.

Television

Following the announcement that Supergirl will be airing on Monday October 26th, there’s been a new poster released which shows her… Flying in the sun. Neat.

Yet another Heroes Alumni has joined Heroes Reborn, this time it’s Christine Rose who played Angela Petrelli. At this rate it really should be called Heroes revisited.

The Muppets Tv Show has an air date and time, and it’s Tuesday the 22nd of September, 8PM, ABC.

Games

Well it’s that time of year; money flies from wallets, games fill libraries never to be played. Yup. It’s time for the Steam Summer Sale.

A few big name games won’t be appearing at E3, according to Microsoft. Time bending action game Quantum Break won’t be at the Expo, and neither will the new Crackdown or Scalebound. Instead these games will be saved for gamescon later in the year.

Brothers; A tale of two sons is an emotional, clever and incredible journey of a game. And this summer it’ll be coming to current gen consoles and the iOS.
