Coffee Time News 24/06/15

Spiderman gets actor and director, Hannibal gets cancelled and the PS4 gets a 1TB edition.

Film

Independence Day 2 now has a full title; Independence Day Resurgence. The film will be set 20 years after the events of the first film and feature some returning characters as well as a few new faces; most of who are connected to the original cast in some way, check out some images here.

A new trailer for 7 Days in Hell the tennis mockumentary starring Kit Harington and Andy Samberg is out, it shows off a bit more of the characters as well as some more of the cameos and bit characters we’re likely to see. It looks silly and fun and I can’t wait.

Spiderman has finally been cast! Tom Holland, of Impossible and the upcoming In the Heart of the Sea, has been cast as the wall crawler, most likely to appear for the first time in some capacity in Captain America Civil War, and definitely due to appear in the 2017 Spiderman reboot that will be directed by Cop Car director Jon Watts.

Television

Bad news for Hannibal fans, after 3 years the show is being cancelled by NBC. Despite being popular the show has suffered with low ratings, especially in the most recent season.

A new teaser for Heroes Reborn shows us very little of the expansive cast or effects we came to expect from the original, but it does a good job in portraying a world without saviours, a world, perhaps, in need of a new group of heroes.

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: the spin off series of the cult film that’s due to air on Netflix at the end of July, has a new, incredibly retro, trailer which confirms what we thought; this show will not take itself particularly seriously, which is great,

Games

Those of you who were looking to get a PS4 but haven’t quite gotten around to it, may want to take a look at the new 1TB PS4. Offering twice the amount of storage as the vanilla console, this ‘Ultimate player edition’ will be available in select Europeanand PAL  territories come July 15th.

After a slew of delays, Project Cars was finally released in May. Well, good news: We won’t have to wait so long before the next one, as Project Cars 2 is already being crowd-funded. And people aren’t too thrilled about the time scale.
