The Good Dinosaur gets a trailer, The Minecraft Movie gets a director and Dark Souls 3’s combat gets quicker.

Film

A new trailer (the first real trailer) for Disney/Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur has launched, and it’s shaping up to be a buddy film with very little speech, kind of along the lines of Wall-E I imagine. But still, dinosaurs, adventure, great animation? Sign me up.

Last month we lost composer James Horner, known for doing scores for films such as Braveheart, Titanic and Avatar. Well it seems that despite that we’ve not seen the last of his work, as it’s recently been revealed that Horner had written the score to The Magnificent Seven before his passing.

Finally, there’s been a new trailer, some new images and a new plot synopsis for Spectre the upcoming Bond film.

Television

The X-Files reboot, it seems, will not just be Mulder and Scully looking around empty rooms and interacting with no one at all, as we’ve got some co-stars to report! Robbie Amell (The Flash) Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) are all set to co-star.

Quite a dark, contrasted look at Grant Gutin’s new suit for the Flash season 2, but hey, it’s something I suppose.

A new short trailer for Supergirl has surfaced, it doesn’t show off a lot more, but once again, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Games

Movie/game news up first, and the Minecraft Movie has a director in the form of Always Sunny’s Rob McElhenney.

Apparently Bloodborne had more lasting effects than a pile of broken controllers, and as a result of the game, the combat in Dark Souls 3 will be faster paced than it’s predecessors.

The first photos of the new young Xmen, a twitter campaign to save Constantine and Five nights at Freddy’s 4 announced.

Film

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel has found its new Shredder in Inception/The Wolverine‘s Brian Tee. The fate of the Turtles’ big bad seemed all but sealed in the reboot, but then this is a comic movie, there was special ooze, and franchises need to be made.

Star of It Follows Maika Monroe has been cast for Independence Day 2 as it starts filming for its summer 2016 release.

Those sneaky on set photographers; bringing us almost clear behind the scenes photos of big films since… whenever it was. Anyway, said photographers have managed to snap some images of the new roster for Xmen Apocalypse which features Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Jubilee (Lana Condor).

Television

If you’re a fan of the NBC show Constantine and would like to see it renewed, now is the time to make your voice heard as it’s in the next few weeks that the studio will be deciding the fate of the Hellblazer adaptation. Jump onto twitter with the hastag #saveconstantine.

Orange is the New Black is coming back to Netflix this June, and before its release there’s a new banner image for the show, you know, promotion and the like.

The plotline for The Flash is heating up, and soon we should get more exposure to that super intelligent Gorilla that we’ve seen teased every so often. And by should, I mean we definitely will because these images of a showdown between the Scarlet Speedster and a giant gorilla have appeared.

Games

It was short lived, but the paid mods feature for Skyrim between Valve and Bethesda has been pulled; with all users who bought a mod getting a complete refund. The statements from both companies state that they realise now that it was a feature that they underestimated, and issue their apologies.

It barely seems like a year ago that the first Five Nights at Freddy’s took the internet by storm… what? What do you mean it was less than a year ago? Well hell. Anyway, the fourth (and final) instalment into the jump scared filled series is coming this Halloween. 

Console Minecraft players, rejoice, starting at some point this week you will be able to play as Alex, a female equivalent to the default Steve skin. When asked about the inclusion Mojang stated that it was to better represent their diverse player base. You go Mojang.

Watch the Original Whiplash, a preview for tomorrow’s Agents of SHIELD and take a look at the guys who are taking Minecraft/Zelda to the next level.

Film

Everyone here knows how much I enjoyed Whiplash, well now you can watch the short film that earned it a full length investment, still with J.K. Simmons, but also YOUNG NEIL (Johnny Simmons) from Scott Pilgrim Vs the World as Neiman, the role eventually played by Miles Teller.

Chris Hemsworth gives a really interesting and in depth interview about Thor’s role and his experiences with Avengers Age of Ultron over at Screenrant. 

Hey, Robin Hood, there’s a story that we definitely need another re-telling of. I mean, we had the gritty Ridley Scott version, that could have been a really great film if they had gone with the original script which told the story from the Sheriff of Nottingham, and we’ve already got the two greatest tellings of the story ever; the Cary Elwes Robin Hood Men in Tights and the adorable Disney version where he’s a bloody FOX. What was I saying? Oh yeah, King Arthur writer Joby Harold is working on another dark script for the mythical hero.

Television

Game of Thrones fans gather around, I’ve got not only a bitchin’ new poster starring our favourite dwarf, but two kind of clips, one of which includes our favourite sullen know-nothing and the other has Brienne of Tarth, you know, that complete bad-ass who is on the trail of Sansa Stark. Right here!

Take a look at this clip from Agents of SHIELD’s return to the screen on March 3rd, which sees Coulson making a deal with the US government over a certain Hydra prisoner.

Over at Flickering Myth they’ve got a heap of images (courtesy of Empire) of the new Daredevil show for Netflix, only a few of which have been seen in the trailer.

Games

A fairly Zelda heavy day today: Hyrule Warriors is getting a new Boss Pack DLC, which will give players the ability to play as Ganon, and if you’re really good with Ganon, and get an A in his survival mode, you’ll get to play as the deadliest creature in all of the Zelda Universe.

The mother peckin’ Cucco.

In other Zelda news, a pair of incredibly dedicated and smart fellows from New Jersey have begun recreating the original Legend of Zelda in Minecraft. I know, it sounds like it’s been done before, but not like this. Using only features from the PC version they intend to create a perfect replica of the game as if you were playing it in first person, the entire map is to scale (1 zelda block is 3×3 Minecraft equivalents) including Dungeons, weapons and enemies. Enemies that aren’t even written into the vanilla Minecraft game but can be with a bit of know how. I seriously recommend checking out this video if you’d like to see the potential of it all.

Xbox’s Games with Gold have been announced; Xbox One players you’ll be getting Rayman Legends, while 360 players you’ll get Tomb Raider until the 16th and then you’ll be able to grab Bioshock Infinity for yourself. Playstation users will have to wait until the announcement later in the week (Hopefully).

At what point this season do I get to start calling this segment ‘Pumpkin Spiced Latte News’?

Film

Dave Bautista, you know, the guy who played the hilarious Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, is most probably going to be playing the henchman in Bond 24. I hope I’m not alone in rejoicing at the idea that Bond movies are going to have Henchman again. I miss Jaws.
