Warcraft trailer coming in November, Gotham season 2 to bring in Calendar man, and the PS store sale kicks off with Journey.

Film

Idris Elba has been confirmed for the third Star Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, in a video by Omaze for charity that sees he and some of the stars of the series talking about how you could win a walk on role in the new film. 

The Splinter Cell movie, that will star Tom Hardy, and that is being put together by Ubisoft’s own motion picture department, has gone through another script re-write, but still has the Mad Max actor attached. These rewrites are possibly a good thing, as video game adaptations are not historically amazing, and rewrites means that they’re taking it somewhat seriously.

We will see the first trailer for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, the film based on the hugely popular MMO, some time in November, his twitter has announced.

Television

American Horror Story will be on its fourth season this year, and this one’s set in a hotel. As well as the usual cast that we’re expecting to see, however, we have a guest star checking in; Lady Gaga. 

Emerald City the NBC live action television series that will be based on the land of the Wizard of Oz, has gained itself Self/less director Tarsem Singh.

Gotham season 2 promises to bring the Joker, as well as Mr Freeze to the centre stage, but showrunner Bruno Heller has come out and said that it’s possible they’ll be introducing both Calendar Man and Azreal in the upcoming season as well.

Games

Radical Entertainment’s biological weapon/open world destructo-thing, Prototype, and its sequel, Prototype 2, are now available on next gen (this gen?) consoles, Activision announced today without much to do. The bundle features all the available content wrapped up in an HD remaster.

Jager, the development team behind the incredible Spec Ops the Line have been dropped from their current project, Dead Island 2, publisher Deep Silver have announced today.
