Assassin’s Creed Unity is a “new start”

7 hours ago

According to Ubisoft’s Creative Director Alex Amancio, Assassin’s Creed Unity is going to be a fresh start for the series.

Speaking on a video posted to Ubisoft’s YouTube channel, Amancio said, “It’s a new start, it’s a new narrative start. That is symbolized by a completely new context for the present day.” An updated modern day experience will be good, as Desmond’s story ended with Assassin’s Creed III. To move away from that completely and begin a new story is perhaps the best way to truly set Unity apart.

Amancio also said that Assassin’s Creed Unity would be a good entry point to the series for new players, even as much so as the original. Going by those words, the company is truly painting Assassin’s Creed Unity as a whole new beginning. Amancio said in the video, “What we’re doing »

Doomsday getting ready for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

8 hours ago

He was featured in the supposedly fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (read our review and breakdown here), but this rumour hasn’t surfaced from that script, but rather sources for Bleeding Cool, who claim that Doomsday designs have been spotted.

In DC Comics lore, Doomsday is the character that killed Superman in the 1992 in the Doomsday! series which is now more commonly known as Death of Superman. In the fake script leaked online, they re-enact the Death of Superman storyline which leads the reveal of a Superman statue, not unlike the one that is being built on set.

However, the website does go to lengths to point out: “Now, of course, much can change in the production process. This may be used purely for flashback purposes on the screen, looking at the life (and death) of Superman. It may be purely for promotional efforts to accompany the film. »

9 hours ago

Flickering Myth co-editor Luke Owen sits down with Christine Langan, Head of BBC Films, to talk about Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie…

It wasn’t press screened for critics prior to its release and when the reviews came out, it was perhaps clear why. However, that hasn’t stopped Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie being a roaring success at the box office. The movie has enjoyed a second week at the top of the charts and has taken around £10 million in total, with talk that a sequel is already being worked on.

I sat down with Christine Langan, Head of BBC Films, to discuss the success of the movie and whether a sequel could be in development…

Lo: I’ll assume you’re pleased with the box office numbers for Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie?

It’s a continuing trend to see Pokemon remakes, as they follow in the footsteps of HeartGold and SoulSilver.

White PS4 available without Destiny later in the year

9 hours ago

Unveiled during Sony’s E3 Press Conference, the glacier white PS4 will be bundled exclusively with Destiny when it launches later this year. However, it has now been confirmed that you will eventually be able to purchase the white PS4 standalone.

Word comes from Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida that the machine will be available for those not really interested in Destiny. He goes on to say, “In Europe we’re going to launch the bundle with Destiny on September 9th,” he said. “But after that, later this year, we’re going to release the standalone white PS4 as well in Europe.”

So Europe is certainly getting the ‘glacier’ white PS4, but there’s no current word on the console’s availability in other regions. However, it seems highly likely that the white PS4 will see both an American and a Japanese release in the near future.

With cameras starting to roll on the third season of Arrow yesterday, The CW has wasted little time in giving us a taste of what’s to come, releasing an official synopsis for season three of the hit superhero show, which does contain some minor spoilers…

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – Too Extreme for TV?

12 hours ago

Luke Owen looks at the outrage from last night’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer (which you can watch here)…

The Great British public are an incredible bunch of people. We love to queue in orderly fashions, a cup of tea is better than a glass of beer and complaining about things that don’t really matter is our bread and butter.

During last night’s World Cup semi-final game against Argentina and Holland, 20th Century Fox aired a clip from their upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to promote the movie, which will be released on these shores on July 17th. The movie has been getting a vast amount of praise from those who have seen it and Fox are clearly in the game to make a lot of money from this venture, especially if they are going to compete against the money printing »

Chris Columbus to produce the Gremlins remake and Goonies sequel

12 hours ago

According to The Tracking Board, Chris Columbus is heading back to his roots, signing on to produce the planned Gremlins remake, as well as The Goonies sequel. Steven Spielberg is said to be producing The Goonies 2, and will also be involved with the new Gremlins movie in some capacity.

The site goes on to report that the Gremlins remake will adopt a plot very similar to the original, telling “the story of a boy who gets a strange creature for Christmas, only to, through his own negligence, unleash a horde of the little monsters on his town.” However, Slash Film is reporting that it will actually be a “sequel-style reboot” rather than a straight-up remake, set some 30 years after the events of the first movie.

Are you looking forward to the return of the Gremlins and the Goonies? Let us know your thoughts…

24: Live Another Day – Episode 11 Review

14 hours ago

The seconds are ticking away, but 24 is as good as ever. Scott Davis continues his look at Live Another Day…

After the hugely surprising finale to episode ten, hour eleven has certainly raised the alert level to a new high. With the reintroduction of Chang (Tze Ma) mixed in with a Russian “dressing”, the makers of the show have stuck Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) firmly in a corner he may never get out of. It’s the first time for a while in the show’s nine-year history that Jack has been put right on the cusp of arrest, torture or even death. With just one hour left on the watch, time may be about to expire for our favourite CTU Agent.

Shock has run through world leaders and citizens, with word quickly spreading through news and television of the Us attack on a Chinese Fleet overseas. Instigated by Chang who »

Jon Hamm circling Richard Linklater’s The Incredible Mr. Limpet remake

14 hours ago

According to The Wrap, Mad Men star Jon Hamm is circling Boyhood director Richard Linklater’s next film, a remake of 1964′s The Incredible Mr. Limpet. The original film followed a man named Henry Limpet, who turns into a talking fish and helps the United States Navy locate and destroy Nazi submarines.

I’m not kidding about that description. Go ahead and read it again. I’ll wait.

Linklater’s remake will utilize a mixture of CGI and live-action, and give the film a more contemporary update.

Zack Galifianakis (The Hangover trilogy) is set to star as Larry Limpet, a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he finds himself turned into a fish, he sets out to save his town and the sea world, while facing off against Hamm’s character, a shrewd businessman who mines the ocean floor.
