Another short day on news with only a few trailers on their way, but Jurassic World continues its success in the UK Box Office nonetheless.

Film

A new TV spot for Ant-man lightly pokes fun at the concept while showcasing some more action scenes and previously unseen footage. Paul Rudd is really nailing it as Scott Lang, Ant-man releases next month.

Rogue was a big part of the original script of Xmen Days of Future Past, but was ultimately cut due to pacing, but a new trailer for the ‘Rogue cut’ which will show the whole story as to what happened after Kitty Pride ended up getting Wolverine’d teases what’s to come.

Television

Star Wars Rebels season 2 kicks off this weekend with a two part feature, and to warm you up for it, here’s a teaser that teases all the teasetastic Darth Vader-y stuff you can hope to see.

Showtime have officially renewed Penny Dreadful for a third season, you can check out our watch list for it here, but it’s a good show with a lot of atmosphere and certainly worth catching up on if you’re not yet ready for 2016’s third season.

Chris Evans (Not Captain America, the one who works for the BBC) has officially been confirmed as the new host of Top Gear, the Motoring magazine show. After the departure of Jeremy Clarkson after he punched a producer in the face, and the subsequent loss of James May and Richard Hammond, there are some very big shoes to fill in that iconic British show.

James has finished up his coverage of E3 2015 with his Nintendo and Sony conference coverages. Go, ENJOY.

First look at Will Smith’s Deadshot from Suicide Squad, Batgirl is playable in Arkham Knight and Star Wars Rebels is free to watch today.

Film

Michael Fassbender, who’s both producing and starring in the Assassins’ Creed movie adaptation, has stated that the movie will begin filming this September, aiming for a late December 2016 release. Fassbender has been quiet on where, or when, the animus sections of the film will be based in.

Suicide Squad! (Or as it will most likely be renamed, I imagine, Task Force X) director David Ayer has released a roster photo of the gang from Belle Reve, showing us the first look at some of the anti-heroes we’ll be meeting, including Katana and Killer Croc amongst the characters we’ve already heard about. And if you’d like a detailed look at Will Smith’s Deadshot, just click here for an image that includes the signature helmet/mask.

Fantastic Four and Chronicle director Josh Trank has stepped back from directing the second Star Wars Anthology Spin off that was due out in 2018. We knew little of the project, and we know little of the departure, though Trank has stated that he’s intending to pursue original creative opportunities’ – after working with Fox on a brand like Fantastic Four, it’s no surprise he’d like to take a break from franchises and the pressure therein.

Television

If we’d known about this earlier, we’d have shared it at the beginning of the week, but for those who haven’t seen Star Wars Rebels you can watch the entire season 1 for free online here, until the end of May 4th Bank Holiday.

Grodd is a character that has been built up in the Flash since the pilot, well the super intelligent telepathic ape is about to make a spotlight appearance in the upcoming episode ‘Grodd Lives’ – you can check out the promo here.

Games

People might know how much I loved Child of Lightand how addictive that world is, and while Ubisoft haven’t confirmed a sequel, but they have let us revisit the world, in this 20 page children’s book, featuring the adventures of Reginald the Populi.

Fancy slaying dragons in Dragon Age Inquisition‘s multiplayer? Well you’re in luck, launching tomorrow (on all available platforms) is a multiplayer expansion which will allow groups of players to take on the fiercest beats in Thedas.

Still think £40 for a season pass for Batman Arkham Knight is a bit steep? What if I told you it included a stand alone story featuring Batgirl named ‘a matter of family’? Yeah, it’s still pretty steep… but if more narrative content is included and less… trial maps, then I’m all about it.

Solo mode for Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Spin off details and a brand new, (and pretty good) Fantastic Four trailer.

Film

For those who missed it this weekend, and didn’t fancy seeing it in shaky-cam glory, here’s the official Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer which was released prematurely as a result of the leaked footage hitting the internet on Friday.

This weekend saw the 2015 Star Wars Celebration event, and along with that came a load of information regarding Rogue One the first spin off film for the series that will hit in December 2016. The Spin offs will be referred to as the Anthology as a way of separating them from the main trilogies, click here for more information from the panel.

In a surprise release (I think) there’s a new, full length Fantastic Four trailer that’s appeared; it’s significantly less Interstellar-y, with more of a focus on the plot, also, Sue and Johnny’s dad makes an appearance and there’s a lot more comedy. I think I’m back on board. 

Television

Orphan Black fans may want to take a look at this article which talks about season 3, and some of the moves that the series is taking in its third season, it’s the result of an interview with star Tatiana Maslany.

On top of the rumoured Agents of SHIELD spin off that surfaced last week, there’s no further talks about Marvel and ABC teaming up for another series, with the hopes to ‘reinvent an existing Marvel superhero character or property for ABC’. On top of SHIELD, the Spinoff and the Netflix series, is this one show too many for Marvel? Or is it a more-the-merrier type party?

Star Wars Rebels season 2 has a new trailer and poster, this season seems to be upping the stakes a lot, with the introduction of a new sith character as well as a lot of Darth Vader action.

Games

Not all of Steam’s features will be available to new sign ups, in a new move from the online store/community hub. New users will have to spend at least $5 (£3.35) in the store to access many of the features, including friend requests, greenlight/workshop voting and using chat. All this in an attempt to stop phishing and spam accounts.

Good news! Star Wars Battlefront will be including offline, non co-operative modes for those who prefer to space alone! In a mode called Missions players will play against bots, with the option of getting an online cohort to help out.

More big news for Borderlands, after last week’s closure of 2K Australia and the departure of writer Anthony Burch back in January, the games’ creator Matthew Armstrong is leaving Gearbox, he announced in a tweet,

Community Season 6 Avengers themed trailer, Avengers Teaser Trailer and March’s PS Plus games announced.

Film

The coolest man in the galaxy, Lando Calrissian, may not be featuring in The Force Awakens but actor Billy Dee Williams has been told that he’ll have a ‘fun cameo’ in episode 8 and has said that he’d definitely be up for it. This comes from the Tabloid the Sun though, so you know… It’s probably to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Here’s the first look at Joseph Gordon -Levitt as Edward Snowden, from the movie Snowden directed by Oliver Stone. The movie, based on the events of 2013 involving an NSA whistleblower who discovered the US government’s surveillance program on ordinary citizens,  will also star Nicholas Cage and Zachary Quinto.

As much as I dislike teasers for trailers (which in themselves are teasers) The Avengers Age of Ultron recently had a new teaser for the third trailer that will air on Thursday night. (So expect it here on Friday Morning) as well as the final character poster starring Chris Evans as Captain America.

Television

I had my doubts about Community season 6, I can’t help but feel like it’s gone on a little too long, but the first trailer for the Yahoo exclusive show, which is obviously heavily ‘inspired’ by the Avengers Age of Ultron’s first trailer has won me over somewhat, it looks like the continuation of the form we’ve gotten since the end of the terrible gas leak season.

Winter is coming, but SO SLOWLY, with just over a month to go until season 5 of Game of Thrones (airs April 12th) we’re really still quite thin on the ground with regards to promotional material, though when something’s this big, do you really need it? The people who are going to watch it are definitely going to watch it. Anyway, we finally get to see some of the fan favourite Sand Snakes in this weapon featurette which talks about designing the weapons of Dorne.

Star Wars Rebels (which, for those who are keeping track is official canon) has just announced that Season 2 will star Sarah Michelle Gellar, don’t know who that is? GET OFF THIS SITE.
Nah, just kidding, she’s Buffy, you know, from Buffy The Vampire Slayer? Her character doesn’t have a name or role yet, but you know, talent?

Games

Big news first, Valve, responsible for all your summer sale poverty, has finally announced details about their Steam Machines and the Steam Controller, which are to be launched in November. Apparently they’re to be priced in the same realm as regular consoles but will have higher performance, and the steam controllers will be priced around $50 a piece. They also announced that their new engine, Source 2, will be free for developers which is lovely of them.

Dragon Age Head Writer David Gaider announced via twitter that he was leaving the franchise but not Bioware. He’s starting work on a new project that, unfortunately, he can’t tell us anything about. But being responsible for 10 years worth of Dragon Age work can only prove promising for whatever it is he’s moved to.

Better late than never right? The PS plus games for March are here, they include Counter Spy, Valient Hearts the Great War and OlliOlli 2. check out the full list, and previews over at the official page.

Star Wars Revels shows off more cool stuff in this new clip, and it’s in the form of a spinning dual lightsaber. You’ve got to wonder what happened to all these wicked things in the original trilogy.

The pilot for Gotham isn’t even off of the runway yet, (the show doesn’t take off until September 25th) but we’ve already got a synopsis for the second episode for you.

Microsoft purchased Minecraft creator Mojang yesterday for $2.5 billion, but that’s not the biggest news of the story as Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, as well as some more of Mojang’s staff have left the studio.
