Film

Deadpool has its first red band trailer, and seriously, it’s very hard not to get excited for this film; it seems fun, action packed and a bit of a breath of fresh (blood splattered) air to the sorts of super hero films we’ve seen this year. Not suitable for work, obviously it’s Deadpool silly.

A heap of new Tv spots (three) and a new clip have surfaced from the Fantastic Four reboot that is releasing later this week. Oh, you nearly made a black hole? Well now we know the climax may just involve the threat of a black hole. Probably right?

In none clip-y news, Colin Trevorrow, director of this year’s sequel hit Jurassic World, has discussed some of his plans for the stories that this series could tell, particularly the idea that InGen might not be the only ones who will be able to make dinosaurs; open source Dinos.

Television

Lucy Lane (Louis Lane’s younger sister) has been cast in Supergirl, and will be played by Jenna Dewan-Tatum. In the comics, Lucy Lane eventually becomes superwoman, whether she’ll come in fully powered, or whether her powers will manifest in later episodes or even seasons, we don’t know.

The Lunatics will run the Asylum, if this promo for Season 2 of Gotham is to be believed. It looks like we’ll have an even deeper look into the growth of some of Batman’s finest rogues this season.

A new (unfortunately region locked) teaser for the Walking Dead spinoff ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ has surfaced, as well as some images from season 6 of the main show, they show… well, characters standing and looking intensely into the distance, probably at Zombies, or at eachother… or a tree, also… Zombies. Sorry, walkers.

Games

Gamescon is currently under way, so there’s plenty of news out coming out all of the time, but here’s some of the stuff you may be interested in:

Dark Souls 3. Enough said right? Here’s a gameplay trailer, go get excited. But in all honesty, the guys from From Software (that name is a horribly mean joke to writers everywhere) have claimed that they’re speeding up the combat a little thanks to the reception that Bloodborne’s more high-risk-high-reward combat got from fans, which can be seen in the gameplay, as well as a very Yarnham-y setting.

Destiny The Taken King will bring a lot of changes to the series, a lot. We’re talking questlines, a change in Bounty behaviour, more currency modifications, weapon stat changes, weapon behaviour changes, a different levelling system… it’s a big list, and you can check a summary here. It’s also worth noting that Peter Dinklage is being erased from Destiny and replaced with every-voice Nolan North. Well, Dinklebot wasn’t really around for the DLCs, and I’d rather have more interactions with the Ghost than Tyrion Lannister telling me I’ve woken the Hive.

Mad Max Fury Road was an incredible action film, and now we’ve got a trailer for the Mad Max Game, which is shaping up to be a pretty damn good game itself,  with a whole new story for the game. Check out the trailer here.

First Mockingjay part 2 trailer, Jurassic World outsells the Avengers and Five Nights at Freddy’s Four is OUT NOW.

Film

The first full length trailer for Mockingjay part 2 has surfaced, and it gives us all a better look at what we can be expecting when the film is released on November 20th. (Hint, it’s a Hunger Games, without the arena).

X-men Apocalypse has its first hi-res images of the young Xmen we’re due to meet in Brian Singer’s fourth directorial performance of the series; meet Cyclops, Jean Grey, Nighcrawler, Storm and Jubilee.

Jurassic World has outsold the Avengers to become the third highest grossing film of all time, behind James Cameron’s Avatar and Titanic, so it’s no surprise that the sequel has been lined up for June 22 2018.

Television

The Muppets Show for ABC has a ten minute long pitch for you, apparently this is what one the show a place on the network, and you can see why, it’s pretty funny.

Gotham Season 2 has a few teasers, well, actually 2, 2 trailers. One focussing on just how deep into trouble Gordon will go to do his job and the other focussing on Bruce Wayne and the cliff hanger the season left him on. 

Caity Lotz (Sara Lance, the Canary in Arrow) will be returning to Arrow before she takes up the mantle of the White Canary in Legends of Tomorrow.

Games

Rise of the Tomb Raider will be an Xbox One Exclusive, for a time, we knew that, but now we know exactly what time; a year. Playstation owners will have to wait until holiday season 2016 to play the game.

Bungie have given Destiny players a little sneak look at some of the (apparently) vast arsenal that’s coming to Destiny with the Taken King DLC. Not so much information as more images of the new toys.

Who needs scheduled release dates? Certainly not Scott Cawthorn the creator of Five Nights at Freddy’s! Originally due to be released on Halloween of this year, the fourth game in the series is out. Right now, on Steam.

Michael Cera to play Lego Robin, Deadpool returns to Steam and The Flash set pictures show that he’s got a day all to himself.

Film

Ahead of its release… TODAY, Ant-man has three new clips for those of us who just can’t wait any longer!

Lord of the awkward character actor Michael Cera will be playing Robin in the Lego Batman movie that will tie in with the world created in the Lego Movie.

Age of Ultron fans, but those fans who wish that Joss Whedon’s vision and voice was a little more prevalent in the film, may be a little disappointed to hear that Whedon has no plans to do a directors cut of the film.

Television

Behind the scenes photos for AKA Jessica Jones now, and like, literally all of the other photos it shows Luke Cage riding a motorcycle with Krysten Ritter’s Jones in tow.

A new teaser trailer for the new season of the X-files has hit, and it’s all exactly like we expected, complete with the doo-doo-doo-doo dooo at the end.

New set photos from the Flash show us two things; one that Central city is celebrating the Flash with a day imaginatively called ‘flash day’ (probably has a dance called Flash dance too right?) which means either he’s done something huge, or it’s the anniversary of him doing something huge. It also shows us a new villain, Atom Smasher, who can control his molecular structure, altering his size and strength.

Games

Goat Simulator, you know, that game where you’re a crazed goat, is coming to the PS3 and PS4 in August and will support local split screen co-op.

Destiny will be getting an overhaul at the end of the summer, with Destiny 2.0 changes coming into effect, one of these is a huge upheaval of many weapon’s behaviours, from class changes to individual exotic tweaks.

Activision’s Deadpool game has been missing from Steam since 2013 when it was released, but suddenly it’s back, could it be because the new film doesn’t look like trash? Probably.

First look at the new Ghostbusters movie, Daredevil Se2 starts filming and introduces a cast Elektra and Fallout 4 wins E3’s best of show.

Film

The Ghostbusters Reboot starring Melissa McCarthy and directed by Paul Feig is gaining momentum and now the director has released the first image of the new Ecto-1, which is ever so different from the original. Also, the first image of McCarthy in her new uniform.

The final instalment of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay Part 2, is on its way, and along with it comes a new host of nifty looking posters. 

The Wire‘s Michael K. Williams has been cast as a character with ‘a major stake in the franchise’ in the upcoming Assassins’ Creed movie, he’s also recently been cast in the Ghostbusters reboot.

Television

Daredevil season 2 has begun filming already, and some set photos have emerged right away, as well as that, it’s been revealed that Elodie Yung has joined the cast as Elektra, flashback? Return? Who knows. (probably both)

A few months ago Harry Shearer, voice of many iconic Simpsons characters including Skinner, Flanders and Mr Burns, left the show shortly after the announcement that it had been given two more seasons. Well, he’s back now.

Hayley Atwell, star of Agent Carter, has confirmed that Dominic Cooper (who played Howard Stark in Captain America and the first season) will be returning in season 2.

Games

Dragon Age Inquisition has a new DLC coming, but there’s a catch, it’s only for current gen consoles, as will all future updates of the game.

Destiny players who have done… a buttload of stuff in the first year of the game, will be getting a brand new, exclusive, never to be seen again, emblem for their efforts.

Fallout 4 has taken away the Best of Show award at E3 2015, which, given its sudden and immediate launch coming up, isn’t a surprise (I think the awarders may have shell shock still,) check here for the rest of the winners.

Coffee Time News 26/06/15

Ghostbusters Spinoff not currently on the cards, The Joker and Mr Freeze confirmed for Gotham season 2, and Games for Gold gets an upgrade.

Film

With Ant-man so very close now, we’re getting more and more promotional material; today it’s an international trailer which focusses on the father/daughter relationship we’re likely to see as well as a commercial for Cross technologies, the antagonists of the film.

It looks like Disney is somewhat tired of superheroes and the retelling of fairy stories and instead is looking to base a film in Science. That is, an action movie based on the formative life of naturalist Charles Darwin.

Channing Tatum has out and said that currently, at this moment, at the time of writing, the Ghostbusters spin off starring himself (who is set to be in the female lead reboot) is not happening, as it’s too complicated. 

Television

Heroes Reborn finally has a full trailer with actual clips from the actual show with actual actors, as well as a synopsis which you can get your hands on here. Also, we called it, Levi is an antagonist.

The X-files reboot has its first few images of an aged and reunited Mulder and Scully, which you can check out over at Screenrant.

The synopsis for season 2 of Gotham moves the Joker and Mr Freeze rumours from the mill to the hard fact, as it confirms that season 2 will focus on them, as well as the mystery of Bruce Wayne’s father. It will return on September 21st.

Games

Xbox’s Games for Gold is getting a little better, well actually, twice as good, as instead of the offering of one free game a month on Xbox One, starting July you’ll be privy to two free games a month.

In a positive move for the quality of gaming, EA have announced that if Star Wars Battlefront isn’t up to snuff by the time November roles around, they will delay the game to refrain from releasing an unfinished product.

Ah Bungie, they do try don’t they? Releasing a huge expansion later this year, they had the best intentions to bundle all the goodies into a package that would require you to buy all the stuff dedicated players already had to get it all, now they’ve been told (very loudly) that that’s not on, they’ve started making moves to make the ‘year one’ players feel more appreciated.

More Ant-man TV spots, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods coming to TV and Destiny gets even more PS4 exclusives.

Film

With Fathers’ Day being yesterday, and Ant-man having a daughter (and that relationship likely being a focal point of the upcoming Marvel film) 4 new TV spots have been released showcasing a few new scenes each.

As far as cameo rumour sources go, this has to be a first; Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine may actually appear in Xmen Apocalypse, but how do we know? Well a leather goods store named KikaNY posted some designs on Instagram of a, get this, duffle bag that Hugh Jackman ordered, stating that he’s filming the new Xmen film in Montreal. DUFFLE RUMOURS.

Thor; The Dark World was an entertaining film, there’s no doubt about it, but it didn’t quite capture the magic of the first instalment, well Thor Ragnarok which will be the third solo film in the norse god’s story may have a familiar face behind the camera in the guise of Thor Director Kenneth Branagh.

Television

Daredevil is considered by many to be one of this year’s best pieces of TV, and so with the announcement that the Punisher will appear in season 2 as well as the excitement of the rest of the Defenders coming together eventually, actor Rosario Dawson talks about her character and the evolving role she’ll have in the culmination of the series.

While the Marvel Cinematic team won’t have a presence at Comic-Con this year, the Television unit will be represented in the form of a selection of the cast and crew of both Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter,

Not long ago it was announced that US television network Starz gave the go ahead to the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, and now the producer Bryan Fuller, alog with Gaiman, have released some concept art, and here’s the intriguing synopsis,

American Gods posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities. 

Games

Destiny‘s next piece of DLC The Taken King is apparently choc-full of content and stuff we’ve been waiting for in Destiny, but if you’re playing on a PS4, you’re going to get a bit more bang for your buck, that’s right; more exclusive content; A strike, armour, weapons and a crucible map are all PS4 exclusives,

It’s been a long wait for fans of the Batman Arkham games, and unfortunately the wait for Arkham Knight has gotten a fraction longer, providing you’re playing on a PS4; a 3.5 gb patch will go live at launch.

Kerbal Space Program, a game heavy on both scientific accuracy and little green men who can survive in space for years, is coming to the PS4… sometime.
