Video Game Review – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

10 November 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kris Wall reviews Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare…

Looking beyond the sci-fi leaning of its new subtitle for a moment, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the 13th game in the series, a seemingly unstoppable juggernaut of a franchise that has been split between 3 different developers to keep up its annual release cycle, it’s begun to feel like the Call of Duty brand itself could quite possibly become infinite.

Ahead of its UK release later this month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for director Michael Caton-Jones’ coming-of-age drama Urban Hymn; take a look below…

Set against the backdrop of the 2011 British summer riots, Michael Caton–Jones’ Urban Hymn is a redemptive coming-of-age story set in South-West London and follows wayward teen, Jamie (Letitia Wright).

Michael Caton-Jones (Memphis Belle, The Jackal), makes a welcome return with the heart-warming Urban Hymn which won Best Film in the Generator +18 category at the Giffoni Film Festival and screened at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and Glasgow International Film Festival earlier this year. Shirley Henderson (Southcliffe, Filth, Trainspotting) gives an incredibly moving performance as »
