Coffee Time News 15/07/15

Warcraft trailer coming in November, Gotham season 2 to bring in Calendar man, and the PS store sale kicks off with Journey.

Film

Idris Elba has been confirmed for the third Star Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, in a video by Omaze for charity that sees he and some of the stars of the series talking about how you could win a walk on role in the new film. 

The Splinter Cell movie, that will star Tom Hardy, and that is being put together by Ubisoft’s own motion picture department, has gone through another script re-write, but still has the Mad Max actor attached. These rewrites are possibly a good thing, as video game adaptations are not historically amazing, and rewrites means that they’re taking it somewhat seriously.

We will see the first trailer for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, the film based on the hugely popular MMO, some time in November, his twitter has announced.

Television

American Horror Story will be on its fourth season this year, and this one’s set in a hotel. As well as the usual cast that we’re expecting to see, however, we have a guest star checking in; Lady Gaga. 

Emerald City the NBC live action television series that will be based on the land of the Wizard of Oz, has gained itself Self/less director Tarsem Singh.

Gotham season 2 promises to bring the Joker, as well as Mr Freeze to the centre stage, but showrunner Bruno Heller has come out and said that it’s possible they’ll be introducing both Calendar Man and Azreal in the upcoming season as well.

Games

Radical Entertainment’s biological weapon/open world destructo-thing, Prototype, and its sequel, Prototype 2, are now available on next gen (this gen?) consoles, Activision announced today without much to do. The bundle features all the available content wrapped up in an HD remaster.

Jager, the development team behind the incredible Spec Ops the Line have been dropped from their current project, Dead Island 2, publisher Deep Silver have announced today.

The first Ant-man clip releases, the last Top Gear episodes will air later this year, and Bloodborne finally gets that load time patch.

Film

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in huge demand at the minute, what with them being at the forefront of two of the biggest comedies last year (The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street), and they’re now apparently due to write the treatment for an animated Spiderman movie (which will be separate from the MCU) for July 2018. No directors have been announced for the project, but there’s a chance that Lord and Miller could be filling that role, considering their penchant for animation, and comedy.

The release date for robot fighting monster sequel Pacific Rim 2 has been pushed back, from April 2017 to August of that year, most probably making the most of the summer blockbuster season. In other Universal news, Warcraft, the adaptation of the popular MMORPG will be pushed back too, from from March to June of 2016.

Well with the Avengers Age of Ultron officially out in all the countries that matter (oh, sorry about that America…) it’s time to look ahead, I guess, to Antman, which is good, because here’s a clip showcasing Scott Lang’s master thief skills.

Television

We know that Wally West will most likely be making an appearance in season 2 of the Flash, but could that character then be moving onto join the spin off series that’s being pieced together as the weeks go on? Maybe.

If you’ve got a spare 5 minutes and fancy hearing Charlie Cox talk about his time on Daredevil and the future of the show, Flickering Myth have an exclusive interview with the incredibly charming Brit.

Those of you who are Top Gear fans will be happy to know that the final few Clarkson filled episodes of the motoring magazine show that were filmed before the firing of host Jeremy Clarkson will be shown later this year.

Games

Bloodborne players rejoice, the most recent patch has reduced load times by 5 -15 seconds, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but considering we were looking at 40 second load times, it is. Add onto that the fact that From Software now layer the loading screens with useful item information will mean that those loading screens should go by a little quicker.

House of Wolves, the next DLC for Destiny will reportedly fix many of the issues that long term players of the game have been suffering from, read up here on the information that was released in a recent live stream, including weapon upgrading changes and currency alterations.

Marvel has its hands in a lot of pies at the minute; film, tv, netflix, there’s probably a Stiltman radio drama out there too, but one thing they’ve not done is a good video game, well, until now, maybe? Telltale games are almost universally loved, and what better team up to have with a studio that is looking to focus on character driven stories than the guys behind the Walking Dead video game?

Film

The Suicide Squad film has its Harley Quinn, Margot Robbie, who you’ll probably remember from Wolf of Wall Street, should bring some pretty important qualities to the role that we’ve seen (see Sex appeal and the ability to be a badass)

The Hunger Games Mockingjay has a new clip out, it sees Natalie Dormer’s character introducing Katniss to her new crew.

Warcraft, the World of Warcraft movie, has a few cast members as well as some Artwork, which looks pretty neat.

The biggest sit com in the US, the Big Bang Theory, has its own Lego set. Yep,

Games

The latest Xbox One update has started launching, and is focussed on customisation. The details are here. 

Fans of the grappling hooking/parachuting/pure madness that is Just Cause 2 might be happy to know that the sequel won’t be Free to Play,  and there’s an announcement coming in a few days.
