World of Warplanes brings a slice of Iron Maiden into the game

Iron Maiden’s The Legacy of the Beast European Tour is in full swing with the band currently working through its UK leg and to celebrate this, World of Warplanes will bring the scaled replica Spitfire that appears onstage during the opening number, Aces High, into the game. A new video diary with Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson can be seen below…

From 6th August till 13th August, players will be able to take on a mission marathon that will give them the opportunity to earn the Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb Im. But that’s not all, the pilot is Iron Maiden’s very own mascot, Eddie. To earn the Spitfire and Eddie players will have to work their way through five challenging stages.

“World of Warplanes and Iron Maiden share a passion; we are both the ultimate proponents of heavy metal!! Ours involves high speed aircraft, theirs power and musical dexterity.

Empire Season 3 Episode 8 Review: The Unkindest Cut

You've got to feel for Cookie Lyon. Everything she does is for the good of her family, and everything they do seems designed to sabotage it.

You want proof? Well, on Empire Season 3 Episode 8, Cookie set up a big crossover event for Empire by securing prime placement of her biggest star during a big-name fashion show, only for her eldest son to nearly destroy it all for his new girlfriend.

Andre arranged for Tiana to be her own downfall by having Nessa destroy the gown Tiana was supposed to wear during her performance at a fashion show for designer Helene Von Wyeth.

This ignited an angry outburst from Tiana that Nessa secretly recorded and uploaded to the Internet.

Jack Gold obituary

Award-winning film and TV director known for Aces High and The Naked Civil Servant

A well-worn path for bright young recruits to television in the 1950s to 1970s would take them from shooting little news and current affairs items to directing documentary features, thence to dramatised documentaries and finally into fully-fledged drama. Many trod this path, but few progressed more surely than Jack Gold, who has died aged 85.

Born in London, and having graduated from London University with degrees in economics and law, he entered BBC Radio in 1954 in the traditional apprentice role of assistant studio manager. After two years he transferred to TV as a film editor, and in 1960 joined Donald Baverstock’s revolutionary early-evening miscellany Tonight. Here, he duly started to make the programme’s brisk little trademark films starring its idiosyncratic reporters – Fyfe Robertson, Macdonald Hastings, Derek Hart, Alan Whicker and Trevor Philpott.

Barry Jackson obituary

Actor best known for playing the pathologist George Bullard in Midsomer Murders

The actor Barry Jackson, who has died aged 75, was a staple of British television for more than 50 years but it was not until he was in his 60s that he earned a degree of stardom, thanks to his portrayal of the pathologist Dr George Bullard in 76 episodes (1997-2011) of the popular mystery series Midsomer Murders.

Bullard, the friend of local inspector Tom Barnaby (John Nettles), is called in whenever a murder victim is found, which happens in each feature-length episode. "It's always good when I get more to say than 'He died at 11pm'," Jackson remarked. "I try to be as real as possible, though I call the show pantomime crime, not true crime. That's its appeal – everyone gets bludgeoned to death but there's something quite old-fashioned and harmless about it."

From the plots of Midsomer Murders, you

Geek Gossip: Lord of the Rings actor Bernard Hill in Outpost 11, Lilly-Fleur Pointeaux and Gala Besson get Fever

British stage and screen veteran Bernard Hill, who played King Theoden of Rohan in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the ship's captain in Titanic, is to appear in independent sci-fi film Outpost 11.

He plays a character called Cranleigh. Leading the cast are Luke Healy, Joshua Mayes-Cooper and Billy Clarke, with support from Graham Till. Several production stills from the project are included here, along with the trailer.

Set in an alternative past where steam power still rules the world, Outpost 11 is the story of three soldiers manning a remote listening post in the Arctic Circle.

One day the warning light goes off unexpectedly and their world is plunged into chaos. Albert (Mayes-Cooper), Mason (Healy) and Graham (Clarke) must fight "isolation, madness and arctic spiders" to survive.

The story being set in a steampunk past makes a refreshing change from the usual post-apocalyptic future found in so many recent Hollywood releases.

Syd Cain obituary

Production designer behind the deadly gadgets used by James Bond – and his foes

The production designer Syd Cain, who has died aged 93, was one of many behind-the-scenes professionals elevated to something like prominence by the worldwide interest in the James Bond films. An industry veteran who began work in British cinema as a draughtsman in 1947, contributing to the look of the gothic melodrama Uncle Silas, Cain is credited on a range of film and television projects, but remains best known for his work in various design capacities on the 007 series, from Dr No in 1962 to GoldenEye in 1995.

Born in Grantham, Lincolnshire, Cain served in the armed forces in the second world war, surviving a plane crash and recovering from a broken back. Working at Denham Studios in Buckinghamshire in the 1940s and 50s, he moved up from uncredited draughtsman (on Adam and Evelyne, The Interrupted Journey, You Know What Sailors Are

What would a 1970s-era "Expendables" cast look like? We'll tell you

  • IFC
What would a 1970s-era
Okay, yes, "The Expendables," ended up being better as an "idea" than a reality. Sylvester Stallone gathered a bunch of over-the-hill action stars (including his "Rocky IV" opponent, Dolph Lundgren, and his "Get Carter" pal, Mickey Rourke) for a bloody shoot-'em-up designed to show all the young whippersnappers out there that the old men still got it. The resulting film had its moments but was ultimately too confusing, too haphazard and too, well, expendable.

But what are sequels for if not a chance to make things all better (don't answer that)? Stallone has gathered an even more impressive cast for "The Expendables 2" -- Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme will be contributing to the mayhem this time around, and Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, both of whom only had cameo appearances in the original film, will have much larger roles in the new adventure. And, of course, all of the old gang is back,

10 greatest flying movies

From aerial bravery in Wwi to Tom Cruise in an F-14 Tomcat, Mark lists his top ten all-time favourite flying movies…

This is a personal list, and as such, won't please everyone. I accept that, but I wanted to look at the films that have best represented flying for me over the years.

I've also excluded helicopters in exchange for a festival of fixed wings. But as a person who loves aircraft and flying of all kinds, these are the ones that made me feel the need. The need for speed...

The Dam Busters (1955)

Gosh, what a place to start. For the most part, the film's an historically accurate retelling of the ultimate daring-do of WWII. Richard Todd plays the unflappable Guy Gibson, who lead the amazing 617 Squadron on their secret mission against the dams of the Ruhr valley.

Using the Barnes Wallis (played by Michael Redgrave) utterly inspired bouncing bomb,
