Not so-Fantastic Four, Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition and the return of Walder Frey.

Film

The Fantastic Four reboot starring Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, has not been received well, by critics or by fans, taking in just enough at the weekend to make it the eighth lowest ever earning Marvel film. Yikes.

There’s a few seconds of new footage in the new international TV spot for Star Wars The Force Awakens, go  on, watch it, you know you bloody want to.

Despite almost the entirety of 22 Jump Street making a joke at the expense of sequels (with the credits really hammering home the point) it looks like Sony is going forward with 23 Jump Street and they’re going to Medical School! Unfortunately, Phil Lord and Chris Miller will not be writing this instalment, but will only be on the project in a producing capacity.

Television

There’s a heap of on set photos from Daredevil season 2 depicting Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) brutally laying down his own kind of Punisher law. Go, observe, and get excited about this guy going toe to toe with Daredevil.

Sense8 has earned itself a second season from Netflix, not long ago Sara gave us a look into what it’s all about and, clearly, someone listened, because the reception of the show has been exceptional.

Get ready to throw stuff at your TV screens kids, because David Bradley has confirmed that he will return as Filch Walder Frey in Game of Thrones, at some point, probably season 6.

Games

Ori and the Blind Forest, which was received very well by critics and players alike, will be getting, not only an expansion, but a definitive edition later on in the year for Xbox one and PC.

Halo 5 Guardians had its beta earlier this year, and it turns out that it’s still a little bit accessible if you’ve downloaded it. Which means that when an update was launched, an eagle eyed player managed to snag some of the soundtrack and screenshots of a new play mode.

Hey! It’s been a long time, but we’re back, after a week’s absence, which we apologise for, it’s time to get back to regularly scheduled programming!

Film

Zoolander 2, after years of rumours (and probably helped out by  the fact that they decided to make an Anchorman 2) has its first trailer (because we don’t quite count that time Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson crashed the fashion show.)

Ridley Scott’s The Martian looks to be a scientifically accurate sci-fi fare that’s also a tale of survival as one man is separated from his team on Mars when a dust storm rolls in, here’s some new images showing off the atmosphere and tone of the film.

You know how normally, we’d show you a teaser one week, and a trailer a few weeks later, and then as the film’s release gets closer we’d throw any clips that happen to come up your way? Well we sort of missed The Man from U.N.C.L.E and are jumping straight in with a bunch of clips from Guy Richie’s new spy film.

Television

AMC have graciously offered us a look at Better Call Saul season 2, and by that, we mean here’s two images of the season… Thanks AMC.

Game of Thrones is likely to end after 8 seasons, according to the powers that be. Though HBO has expressed their enthusiasm for more storytelling from that world (it is a huge world, and so much has been shaved off for the show) so we may only see 8 seasons of Game of Thrones, but perhaps more of the land of Westeros.

Steven Moffat has out and said that Maisie Williams’ Doctor Who character isn’t a returning one; no River Song, no Jenny, none of those other cool fan theories that have popped up since she was first seen in the trailer to be familiar with the Doctor.

Games

Soon, Playstation owners will get a say on which PS4 games they’ll get free each month, at least, one of the games. Sony is introducing a Vote to Play system, where player will get to vote on a selection of games, the winner of which will be free the next month, the runners up? They’ll be discounted. Winners all round.

Today is the last day you’ll be able to bag yourself the immensely fun Rocket League for free on PS4. And I’d heartily recommend it, but if my recommendation isn’t quite enough, try looking at some of the new dealies you’ll get when the first piece of DLC comes out.

The Taken King is set to be Destiny’s biggest update, and with it comes a whole new area, the Dreadnought, take a look over at Polygon for he sort of thing that Oryx has in store for you come September 15th.

Suicide Squad trailer released in HD, a look at Oliver Queen’s new outfit and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 gets a trailer.

Film

The first trailer for Xmen apocalypse appeared at Comic Con this week, and while we don’t have that to show you, we do have a detailed description, as well as the confirmation of the official Four Horseman; Magneto, Psylocke, Storm and Angel.

Speaking of Super Hero trailers, or, more precisely, villain trailers, here’s an official release of the pirated Suicide Squad trailer that the WB have been unable to contain, so they did good by everyone and released an HD version. 

Star John C Reilly has pretty much confirmed Wreck it Ralph 2. Though it’ll most likely be somewhere after all the other sequels (and new properties) that are coming out in the coming years. (Frozen 2, the Incredibles 2, Cars 34(probably).

Television

A whole lot of talking went on at Comic Con this week, some of it about our favourite scarlet Speedster The Flash, season two is only 14 weeks away and we’ve got a little run down of season one as well as a cryptic look at what we can expect in season 2. (Blue lightning, the answer is blue lightning).

Speaking of DCs’s television shows, Arrow, which saw Oliver Queen going off on holiday and hanging up his hood at the end of the last season, has a new costume. It looks very cool, as well as practical. Diggle is also getting new threads this season, though this one’s a little vague.

Finally, as a surprise to no one, Bran will be returning for season 6 of Game of Thrones, picking his story up a little after we left him (to skip all that boring seer training)

Games

Five nights at Freddy’s Four has a new creepy trailer, and will be coming this Halloween, this jump scar filled indie game series took the lets play community by storm.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 has a trailer, and it involves skating, which is good, since, you know, I don’t buy Pro Skater games for the FPS sections.

Batman Arkham Knight has had a heap of trouble on the PC, so much so that WB are holding off on the Batgirl DLC for the platform until it’s up to scratch.

Reaction Time: Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale

By Sara Da Silva


This season has definitely had its ups and downs and controversial moments. The season finale of Game of Thrones certainly had a lot to offer, but left nations heartbroken.

Spoilers Ahead, Oh lord, Spoilers ahead.
Arya Stark crossed off another name on her kill list: Ser Meryn Trant, who she blames for killing Syrio Forel. Despite becoming a complete badass, she quickly learnt that the Many-Faced God should not be played with.

In Winterfell, everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong. Stannis Baratheon’s army was being swiftly defeated, even after having sacrificed his only child in the previous episode. Selyse, Stannis’ wife, was found hanging from a tree. I guess she just couldn’t deal with the guilt of not preventing her daughter’s murder. The Red Priestess abandoned Stannis just when he needed her the most, and after all that, Stannis finally met his demise at the hands of Brienne of Tarth. You go girl. Despite not seeing a corpse, the cut to black would suggest that he is dead, but this is Game of Thrones we’re talking about so we cannot be undoubtably sure. During all the commotion, Sansa Stark and Reek, who reclaimed his identity as Theon by pushing Myranda to her death, managed to escape by jumping off the wall into the snow below. I hope it was a cushioned fall.

Over in Dorne, Jaime revealed to Myrcella that he was in fact her father but it turns out she knew all along. So that was a sweet reunion. But of course, in true Game of Thrones fashion, it didn’t last very long. Just before boarding the ship, Ellaria Sand finally received some justice by delivering a poisonous kiss to Myrcella, who went on to die in her father’s arms.

Cersei continued to deny her affair with Jaime, but did admit to sleeping with Lancel and so has been allowed to return home before she will be officially judged. The path home was a very long one however. With her hair cut short and stripped of her clothing, Cersei had to travel through crowds whilst Septa Unella repeatedly chanted “shame” behind her. Bravo writers, you made me feel something that wasn’t pure hatred for Cersei.

And last, but certainly not least: the final scene. My beloved Jon Snow was murdered by the men of the Night’s Watch. Whilst readers of the books anticipated his cruel end, I was not aware of his impending death and did not react well to it. I know I should stop becoming so attached to these characters because they all seem to die in horrible ways but I just can’t help it. I can understand why the men of the Night’s Watch did not want to be led by a man who allowed their brothers to die to save the Wildlings, but leaving him in a traitor’s grave is just harsh. They do not understand the threat that is fast approaching. Winter is coming in the form of the undead. The question stands though: is Jon Snow really dead? I have seen countless rumours and theories flying through the internet. I am reading through the books now so I guess I’ll find out soon enough. For any non- readers, you’ll have to wait a while to find out. Good luck with that struggle.

Chris Pratt introduces his Dino-pack, Matt Parkman returns in Heroes Reborn and Batman Arkham Knight gets a live action trailer.

Film

Jurassic World is getting close now, and here’s two more TV spots for the next instalment in the ‘life finds a way’ propaganda movie series, the first features Chris Pratt’s character introducing the Raptor Pack, while the second is an explanation of why they felt the need to BUILD A NEW DINOSAUR.

We get a look at each of the Fantastic Four’s powers in this new promo– beware, it’s actually an add for a movie app.

Remember a while ago we spoke about the BBC drama that would be based around the creation of the GTA series? It was to be titled Game Changer, well, Take-Two Interactive have filed for a lawsuit against the BBC for copyright infringement. So, did someone not like the script?

Television

Heroes Reborn is bringing back yet another familiar face, in the form of psychic cop/magic painter Matt Parkman played by Greg Grunberg. Previously a staple of the original series, Parkman was one of the lead investigator into the Sylar murders (you know, when that show was great.)

Fans of the Flash and Arrow have a long wait ahead of them until the autumn when the shows return, and no doubt we’ll be covering any new news that turns up until then, like this, two videos in which the shows’ creators are chatting about the upcoming seasons.

Games

Battlefield Hardline will get its first of four planned expansions in June, it’s been announced, Criminal Activity will include new maps, weapons and cars as well as a new game mode, check the full list of features out here.

A trailer for the next instalment in the Game of Thrones Telltale game series is out now, with the actual chapter releasing next week across platforms.

There’s a new trailer for Batman Arkham Knight, with a twist; this one is life action, and instead of focussing on gameplay, it’s all about capturing the feel of being Batman, you know, one of the things these games do really well is making you feel like an absolute badass.

Because you’re Batman.

New Destiny expansion out now, Mad Max’s sequel title confirmed and the Grant Gustin talks alternate dimensions in The Flash Season 2.

Film

George Miller (Mad Max – All of them) originally wanted Heath Ledger to reboot the franchise as Max, however, you know… So instead he went for Tom Hardy, who, according to Miller had the same ‘restless energy’ as both Gibson and Ledger. Also, in future news, the sequel to Fury Road will be titled The Wasteland.

Here’s the first trailer for the next instalment of The Maze Runner series The Scorch Trials based on the young adult books. There’s also a new poster for the same film.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel is introducing a host of new characters that we’ve not seen in the current series yet including Casey Jones (Played by Stephen Amell) and mutant henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady, but on top of that there’s a rumour circulating that Krang could be making an appearance, you know Krang… He’s the big head squid thing from another dimension.

Television

For those up to date, here’s four featurettes to take you behind the scenes of Game of Thrones season 5 episode 6 ‘unbowed, unbent, unbroken’.

Grant Gustin (of The Flash) has said, or had said, ahead of the season finale last night, that season 2 will introduce a multiverse, or multiple realities and timelines, which is a brave direction for the show to go in.

Games

League of Legends is serious business in the competitive field, so much so that the developers have introduced a new feature called ‘remove eye candy’ which will get rid of some of the more distracting visual effects during play.

Destiny DLC House of Wolves is now out across all platforms, it raises the level cap by 2 (taking it to 34) and introduces 3 new maps, and a bonus map on Playstation, it also introduces a bunch of new gear and weapons as well as new play modes ‘the trials of Osiris’ and ‘the prison of Elders’.

Cities: Skyline has a new update which, amongst other things, includes tunnels. Now as much as the creators have tried to reduce the effect on popular mods for their game, there are some mod breaking side effects.

Kingsman sequel gaining momentum, Fantastic Four Character posters and this month’s free games.

Film

It looks like fans of Kingsman: The Secret Service (see; everyone with any sense, that film is awesome) are in luck, as Fox looks to be getting themselves ready for a sequel. Not only that but it looks like they’re aiming to get original director Matthew Vaughn back for round two, something that they failed to do with the Kick Ass sequel, which suffered from the lack of Vaughn-ism, this is all good news.

A gallery of behind the scenes pictures has appeared from the filming of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, mostly featuring Megan Fox’s April Oneil in various states of disguise, but it also gives us our first look at Stephen Amell’s Casey Jones, as well as his mask.

Hey look, character posters for Fantastic Four that tell us that this is going to be a darker tone than we’re used to. We also get a good look at all of the characters, and I have to admit, the Thing is certainly growing on me… It beats foam suit Michael Chiklis anyway.

Television

Fancy seeing that Arrow has in store for you next week? Well this teaser here will wet your whistle, though I’ll warn you now; MAJOR SPOILERS for this week’s episode, like, in the first second, so don’t even think about it if you’re not up to speed. We also finally see the costume of Katana (Rila Fukushima) after an entire season of talking about the character and seeing her in (non costumed) action.

Have you already finished watching the leaked episodes of Game of Thrones? Do you need more Westeros while the rest-o’-us catch up? Well the best I can do is the titles and plot descriptions of all the upcoming episodes up until episode 8. Happy?

Games

Destiny‘s next piece of DLC  House of Wolves will also bring to the game a heap of new crucible maps, you can take a look at some images and a bit of description right here, and you can play the DLC on May 19.

Hey, do you have Dragon Age Inquisition on anything other than Xbox One? Well you might like to know that the DLC Jaws of Hakkon is due out on all other platforms on May 26th.

It’s the beginning of the Month, which means both Microsoft and Sony have free games to give you; with Xbox’s Games for Gold you can get Castlestorm, Mafia 2 and F1 2013 while on the Playstation system you can bag yourself this huge list of games, including Guacumelee! and a new game; Ether One, many of which are crossbuy between systems.
