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.

Hateful Eight Images, Batwing Concept Art, A heap of new season trailers, and Fallout 4 seems closer than ever…

Film

Jurassic World, it’s less than a month away, so I guess we’re all full steam ahead on the ol’ promotional material, because right here over at Flickering Myth we’ve got four new TV spots for the next film in the ‘life finds a way’ saga.

The Hateful Eight, is also going into full swing, EW have a gallery of great looking behind the scenes shots of Tarantino’s next piece. They’re all here; Kurt Russell, Samuel El Jackson, Copious amounts of violence (probably).

We know from that trailer we saw that the Batwing will make an appearance in Batman Vs Superman, well now two pieces of concept art for the plane/aircraft have been put out, take a look here and here for different angles of the vehicle (which totally kills those two dudes in that trailer.)

Television

Three new season trailers for you; the first is a season 3 trailer for Orange is the New Black which is due out on Netflix on June 12th (a month away), the second is for Minority Reportwhich will air on Fox this fall, and is based on the film from Spielberg (obviously) and the third is for Lucifer which features the king of hell wanting to take a break, and the chaos that ensues, I guess.

Games

You know Fallout 4? That game that everyone in the world should be excited for? (According to Joe) Well, rumours have been filling the internet, and no more than the recent leaked image of a graphic artist working on a trailer for the game for Mirada studios, now, in light of this, Mirada have emailed Destructoid (one of those who broke the story) stating that this image was violating a Non Disclosure Agreement. So… We’ve definitely getting a Fallout 4 trailer soon right?

A year ago, Assassins’ Creed Unity was causing a to-do because playing as a female character just wasn’t an option, well, Ubisoft seem to be righting their wrongs, as it’s rumoured that you’ll be able to play as a lady in the upcoming entry Assassins’ Creed: Syndicate.

Civil War cast announced, Infinity War writers confirmed, Arrow/Flash Spinoff given an official synopsis and Nintendo is making money again.

Film

News on the Captain America Civil War front (out of interest, do I need to keep using Captain America Civil War, or do you all know what I’m talking about when I say Civil War?), days after the casting of Martin Freeman (whose role we still don’t know for sure), the entire cast list has been announced for the third Captain America film. Along with those we knew of (most of the main cast from Phase 2 minus the Thor gang) we also get a confirmation of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang (Ant-man) which is reassuring to hear, as well as William Hurt’s General Ross who you might remember from The Incredible Hulk. Whether this is all we’re going to see (a notable absence is Spiderman as well as most of SHIELD) is still unknown, as there’s still the hope of Daredevil returning from his Netflix series on top of it all.

Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight almost didn’t happen, if you remember, after a script leak last year Tarantino almost put an end to the entire project, but now that’s not the case and we get the first look at some of the cast thanks to a cover of Entertainment Weekly.

Avengers Infinity War (Part 1 and 2) will film back to back, we know this, over 90 days, but more exciting is the fact that the entire film will be shot in IMAX, This will be the first time an entire film has been shot in this way. On top of that, it’s been officially confirmed that Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will rejoin with the Russo brothers to write the next Avengers event.

Television

Everything you love is getting renewed! I’m talking Agent Carter (se2), I’m talking Agents of SHIELD (se3), I’m talking The Flash (se2) and Arrow (se4), I’m talking Last Man on Earth (se2), I’m NOT talking the Mindy Project, because that got cancelled by Fox. But it’s not all doom and gloom, because it could make the jump to Video on Demand with a two season deal with Hulu.

So we’ve had things that have been renewed, what about the stuff that didn’t even get off the ground? Well, good news for those who thought the television side of the MCU was getting a bit crowded; the Hunter/Bobbi Morse spin off has been cancelled, but as mentioned above, Agent Carter is coming back and so is Agents of SHIELD.

The Arrow/Flash spinoff Legends of Tomorrow has got a season order, as well as a series synopsis, and it features TIME TRAVEL (because that definitely won’t puncture holes in any canon) here’s the official synopsis: – When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? – The show will introduce Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) as Rip Hunter as well as introducing (and reintroducing) various characters from the DC universe.

Games

James will be happy to know that Nintendo is profitable again! That’s about it, just James. But it’s in part due to depreciation of the Yen against the Dollar… something something economy, and I imagine the Amiibo craze and Majora’s Mask didn’t hurt either.

House of Wolves, the next Destiny expansion is bringing a lot of neat things to the series from the sounds of it, and to take a look at some of the specifics (like the new 3 man fireteam vs gladiator arena style Prison of Elders) over at Kotaku.

Next week we should learn a bit more about the next Assassins’ Creed game, which is set in Victorian England (We think). By next week, we mean Tuesday, so stay tuned for that.

Star Wars Episode 7 has a subtitle now! Yep, everyone is looking forward to The Force Awakens. Look out for the prequel webseries called The Force Hits Snooze Once or Twice.

The Hateful Eight, the Tarantino film that almost wasn’t, has a lengthy plot synopsis as well as a cast list! Check that out here.

Finally, Toy Story 4 has been confirmed and dated, set for 2017 the fourth film will see our favourite toys reprising their old roles.

Television

Bran and Hodor WON’T be in the fifth season of Game of Thrones, and the reasoning is exactly what you think; they’ve just reached the end (or near enough) of their current arc in the books.

Netflix have announced that they will be releasing a series based on A series of Unfortunate events, by Lemony Snicket. Back in 2004 there was an attempt to bring the story to life starring Jim Carrey, and while it didn’t bomb, it didn’t do quite well enough to warrant a sequel.

And here’s a trailer and promo for the next episode of Arrow called Guilty. In which Roy has some explaining to do it seems.

Games

Fun retro platform game Shovel Knight is now available in the European Eshop for WiiU and 3DS! I’d advise grabbing it, because it’s a fun, hilarious and charming game.

The Witcher 3 will have 16 pieces of DLC. 16! But thankfully they’re all free, no matter what platform you buy the game on, or how late you buy the game. That’s the way to do it CD Projekt Red, gamers thank you.

Well, hell. It’s finally happened guys, Majora’s Mask is coming to the 3DS. The announcement I have been waiting for since the Ocarina of Time remake announcement has finally been announced. Here is a gallery of material, from art work to trailers, from screenshots to special edition contents. Eeeek.
