Coffee Time News 05/08/15

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.

Jurassic World continues destroying the Box Office, Snyder defends Man of Steel’s ending and could Agent Carter see the first Baron Zemo?

Film

One day we’ll get bored of reporting just how good Jurassic World is, but that day is not today; after this weekend it’s now reached the fifth spot on the list of highest grossing films of all time, overtaking Frozen, The Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Zach Snyder gets a lot of stick for the ending of the Man of Steel, there was a lot of crashing, lots of collateral damage and a few snapped necks. But Snyder has defended his decision, saying that in movies like this, you need tension and consequences, or else what’s the point?

We all gave a chuckle in the Ant-man trailer when Scott Lang suggested that they call the Avengers, but the latest TV spot reveals a superhero cameo that not many were expecting, only watch this if you’re not really fussed about a possible surprise appearance.

Television

Another trio of motion posters have appeared for Heroes Reborn, you can check them out here, this show has a lot of movement behind it, here’s hoping it can live up to the original’s first season.

Agent Carter Season 2 will see the appearance of 2 new villains when it returns next year. Reportedly one of these will be another actual villain from the comics, and considering the appearance of Helmut Zemo in the upcoming Captain America Civil War, it could be the original Baron Zemo.

Games

David Cros (Everyone’s favourite blue(th) painted Analrapist) said he and fellow funny man Brian Posehn were flown over to Bungie HQ back when Destiny was being made to write a bunch of jokes for Ghost, but it seems that they didn’t use a single one.

July 14th will see Batman Arkham Knight‘s first piece of story based DLC in the form of A matter of Family, and will star Batgirl.

Jurassic World climbs to eighth highest grossing film of all time, Supergirl gets a new trailer and all future Halo games will now have a beta.

Film

Jurassic World, there’s a film that just keeps popping up, for good reason too, the dino-sequel has climbed to 8th place in the highest grossing movies of all time, sitting comfortably between Frozen and Iron Man 3.

Last week the new Spiderman was cast, in the form of Tom Holland, now many people are a little dubious of the reboot, what with the fact that we’ve seen the origin story told twice within the last 15 years. But Kevin Feige (you know, that guy from Marvel) has laid out his plans, and why it’s really not the Spiderman we’re used to seeing.

Last up. this promotional image (courtesy of Empire) shows us the Fantastic Four all in a row, showing off their powers (except Reed, but I hear he has performance anxiety.)

Television

In the last few weeks Neil Gaiman’s American Gods has gotten a series on Starz, as well as a showrunner, well it’s now been confirmed that Gaiman himself will write ‘several’ episodes.

Supergirl got a new trailer this weekend, a global trailer. The best thing about this one? It’s not six minutes long. Also, backstory and stuff so all’s good.

Agents of SHIELD season 2 took an interesting turn with the introduction of the Inhumans, giving Skye (Daisy) super powers and having a Inhuman/SHIELD battle come the final few episodes, season 3 seems to be taking the secrecy of SHEILD and combining it with the excitement of the inhumans by introducing the Secret Warriors.

Games

Remember the Halo Master Chief Collection? Remember how the multiplayer, which was almost exclusively the only reason man bought the game, didn’t work? That sucked right? Well silver linings, because now, thanks to that… instance, every Halo game from here on in will have a beta.

Have  you got a free weekend in July? Do you have access to London? Do you have £39 for a weekend pass? Then you could be among those who get to play Star Fox Zero, Mario Maker and Splatoon at this year’s Hyper Japan. Click here for details.

Angelina Jolie returning as Malificent, FX acquire Jurassic World television rights and Gambit gets a director.

Just Television and Films today, since James is covering all things gaming with his E3 coverage which you can find on our main page.

Film

Angelina Jolie has been confirmed for the return of Malificent in the sequel to the 2014 reimagining that reeled in over $750 million. No wonder Disney are looking to take advantage of a successful jumping off point, with Tomorrowland not doing to great.

We’ve got our first look at another returning character in the Star Wars franchise; Carrie Fisher can be seen in these image sporting a… space pant suit? 

Gambit may finally have a director! Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the reboot/prequel Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Though we don’t have any solid idea of a storyline the script is in the hands of Josh  Zetumer, who penned Robocop (2014), which wasn’t terrible.

Television

For those worried that starring in a superhero TV show would be all peaches and gravy, the Supergirl cast have a few words on the pressure they feel to live up to everyone’s expectations, though they say it’s the good kind of pressure that makes you want to be better in every way.

In quiet news that might not come of anything, FX Networks have acquired the television rights to the incredibly successful Jurassic World, could we see a TV series? Probably not, you’d need a lot of resources to pull of those effects.

Games

For James’ rundown of everything that happened at the EA and Ubisoft conferences head on over here. While everything Microsoft can be found right here. Remember to check back during the week for more E3 updates.

Fallout 4 gets a release date and a huge crafting feature, Dishonored 2 announced and Jurassic World destroys Box Office records.

Film

Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight was filmed entirely in 70mm, something that a lot of the marketing material is lording about, well we now have an opening date for that format, as the film will begin showing in 70 mm theatres on the 25th of December this year, with the regular theatrical release some two weeks later in January.

Jurassic World has claimed its place at the top of the boxoffice food chain by having the highest grossing box office opening ever. Of all time. No wonder Chris Pratt is signed on for the sequels already. 

A new clip and trailer have appeared for the Ben Kingsley/ Ryan Reynolds body swap thriller Self/less which could be a really fantastic sci-fi experience, assuming it’s not, you know, terrible.

Television

A piece of leaked dialogue has given us a look into the sort of big bad we could be seeing in Arrow season 4; he’s in control, he’s knowledgeable about Oliver’s past enemies and he’s familiar with Ra’s. Damien Darhk? Probably. 

Season 3 of Agents of SHIELD will begin airing on September 28th, with, we assume, Agent Carter season 2 airing once again in the mid season break.

Games

Ahead of James’ E3 coverage this week, I’m going to report the big announcements of Bethesda’s first ever E3 conference.

First up, Dishonored 2 was announced. Set some time in the future, with revolt and pestilence once again rife, the game will see Emily Kaldwin all grown up and gifted powers by the Outsider taking the fate of the city into her own hands. We see some of the familiar gadgets and abilities in the announcement trailer alongside new doo-hickeys too.

Alongside that, Dishonored Definitive Edition was announced to be released for current gen this autumn and will be a remastering of the game as well as (we assume,) the DLC.

Fallout 4 news though; release date of November 10th of THIS YEAR. Which is barely any time at all when you think about how long we’ve been waiting for the likes of Arkham Knight since its announcement. It will have a lot of focus on crafting, with every item you find in the world having a use, though we’re assured this isn’t ‘necessary’ and is an optional part of the game, who wouldn’t want to make their own thriving wasteland settlement? It’s like Civilisation, with more super mutants. One more thing you can customise? Your character’s power armour.

If you liked the sound of that and want to see more, head on over to Kotaku for a comprehensive Bethesda run down, along with videos, trailers and more sweet sweet details.

Matt Damon is the Martian, Ant-man gets six minutes of footage before Jurassic World in Imax and Bart Simpson to die.

Film

Matt Damon stars in the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s The Martian, which tells the story of a team of astronauts who, upon beginning a return trip, get caught in a storm, with one of the team left on mars and presumed dead, he must use his ingenuity to signal to earth that he is alive.

Six minutes of Ant-man will be yours to watch if you decide to watch Jurassic World in IMAX this weekend. You can’t afford NOT to watch that.

Television

Bart Simpson is finally going to be killed by Sideshow Bob, but no, it won’t last, because it will be in Treehouse of Horror number 26. It’s about time though, that little Brat had it coming.

MTV’s Scream television series has its first trailer, you can take a look here… It’s pretty much everything we expected right? Though with reports of Ghostface being a literal ghost this time… well, maybe it’ll be good.

AKA Jessica Jones is now going to be titled Marvel’s Jessica Jones. as seen on this Netflix screenshot. The show is due out later this year and will act in the same world as Daredevil and the rest of the MCU.

Games

Capcom have announced the Megaman Legacy Collection will be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC this summer, the collection will include the first 6 games in the series as well as a unique challenge mode. Read more here.
