Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds on that R-rating, the competition

48 minutes ago

"Deadpool's greatest superpower is annoying the [cough] out of people", declares Ryan Reynolds, ahead of 2016's superhero tussle.

The first of the seven comic book movies scheduled for 2016 is Deadpool, the potty-mouthed X-Men spin-off that's set to star Ryan Reynolds in the title role.

The movie is in post-production now, and Reynolds has given a new interview, where he's talked about the fierce competition the movie faces in 2016.

So: does the fact, for instance, that Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice follows just over a month later bother him. "Deadpool's greatest superpower is annoying the shit out of people", he told Games Radar +, "so I imagine that he would spark a heavy wave of ire from any one of those groups".

He talked again about the infamous leaked Deadpool test footage, that proved a catalyst for getting the movie greenlit.

"The fans are the ones that leaked the test footage", he reiterated, »

Incredibles 2 dated for 2019, Toy Story 4 moves back a year

9 hours ago

Disney's line-up through to 2020 has been announced with Incredibles 2 slated for 2019 and Toy Story 4 now due in 2018...

If you've been pining for a sequel to Pixar's 2004 hit, The Incredibles, we've good news and bad news for you. The good news is that it's definitely happening, with writer-director Brad Bird back at the helm. The bad news is that its release is still about four years away.

In September, Bird raised our hopes a little bit by stating that his animated superhero sequel was moving along nicely, with its release actually pushed in front of another Pixar follow-up, Cars 3, in the studio's running order. Disney's newly-announced slate of releases reveals that things have changed since that September interview. The Incredibles 2 is now scheduled for 2019, while Cars 3 is set for the summer of 2017.

Elsewhere on the Pixar slate, Toy Story 4, once set to hit cinemas on the 16th June »

Marvel announces Ant-Man sequel plus three untitled films

11 hours ago

This summer's Ant-Man is getting a sequel. Marvel has officially announced Ant-Man And The Wasp, plus: three untitled films...

Starring Paul Rudd, Marvel's Ant-Man proved to be a lighter, more contained companion piece to this summer's behemoth of a blockbuster, Age Of Ultron. That Ant-Man had a bit of a turbulent production (which we won't rehash here) led to some speculation that director Peyton Reed's superhero flick might stumble; to the surprise of both critics and audiences, Ant-Man proved to be a frothy, entertaining success.

Well, if you enjoyed that film, there's reason to celebrate: Marvel has just officially announced the sequel. It's called Ant-Man And The Wasp - a title which makes patent what most comic book fans would probably have assumed in any case: that Evangeline Lilly will be assuming the role of The Wasp alongside Paul Rudd's incredible shrinking superhero.

Supernatural season 11 episode 1 review: Out Of The Darkness, Into The Fire

16 hours ago

Supernatural arrives, promises to shake things up, then returns to the status quo faster than you can say "Justin Hawkins"...

This review contains spoilers.

11.1 Out Of The Darkness, Into The Fire

Last season left us with a new Big Bad on the loose, the Darkness, supposedly so evil that God shut it away and used the Mark of Cain to keep the door locked. Out Of The Darkness, Into The Fire picks up straight away from where we left off. The Darkness has hit, meeting Dean in a vision, taking the form of a mysterious woman who thanks him for her release. He wakes up a mile away from the car where he had been sitting with Sam, who was knocked unconscious when the wave hit.

Heading back into town, the brothers find a dead road crew and the deputy, Jenna, who managed to fend them off. It appears that »

Bob’s Burgers: Fox orders season 7 and 8

18 hours ago

Ahead of season 6, Fox has cemented the future of Bob’s Burgers by ordering season 7 and 8, too…

Great news, this – Fox has ordered two more seasons of the brilliant animated comedy Bob’s Burgers. Ahead of the release of season 6, they’ve ordered seasons 7 and 8 as well.

Loren Bouchard and Bento Box Entertainment created the show, which has certainly built itself a solid audience. It also earned itself an Emmy (in 2014, for Outstanding Animated Comedy) and will see the broadcast of its 100th episode as part of season 6. All wonderful achievements, there.

"In a way your 100th episode should be almost like your pilot all over again,” said Bouchard of the landmark. “I think a good 100th episode shouldn’t be big and crazy. It should be the quintessential Bob’s Burgers episode."

We’ll keep bringing you news about Bob’s Burgers for the next few years, then. Hooray! »

Preacher: it wont be a 100% faithful adaptation, says Seth Rogen

18 hours ago

Chatting about the Preacher comic book TV show, Seth Rogen has admitted to chopping certain aspects out…

One of the big question marks over the Preacher TV series - which will air on AMC and stars Dominic Cooper in the title role - is whether the adaptation process would allow for a completely faithful adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed but at times rather twisted comic, which is all about a vengeful preacher on a quest to literally find God.

Chatting to Crave Online, Seth Rogen (who’s executive producing the show with Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin) admitted that "there's some things that even Garth will argue, is quick to admit, that we probably should not even attempt to put on television."

"There’s some characters, we're talking about maybe we combine these two into one person," he explained. "But to us the tangential element is one of our favourite things. »

Call Of Duty: Black Ops III - new "Cybercore" trailer

19 hours ago

Check out the new high-tech abilities on offer in Call Of Duty: Black Ops III in this new "Cybercore" trailer...

If we're being honest, Cybercore: Chaos sounds more like a 90s dance album than something we'd associate with the Call Of Duty franchise. But all our smirking cynicism melts away when we're presented with one stark fact: Black Ops III will let us slap robots full in the face with the flat of a sci-fi metal hand.

We thought we imagined it at first. But then it happens again. Then again. You can walk straight up to an enemy and strike them in the chops with the palm of your hand. Robots judder and spark at the impact. Foolish humans crumple to their knees, no doubt thinking, "Did this guy just...slap me?" as they lose consciousness. 

But because this is Black Ops III, this incredible move isn't called "Slappy »

Rise Of The Tomb Raider: Dlc and extra modes detailed

19 hours ago

There are plenty of new modes and extra content coming to Rise Of The Tomb Raider. Here are all the details...

Lara Croft will head for Siberia in Rise Of The Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics' icy sequel to its 2013 reboot. Following the experiences of the previous game, Croft's now a tough, animal-skinning survivalist - which is just as well, because the terrain looks decidedly harsh in her new adventure.

As the Xbox 360 and Xbox One edition's release date draws near (PC and PlayStation users will have to wait until 2016), Microsoft has provided some details about Rise Of The Tomb Raider's Dlc and extra modes. The princely sum of $30 will give players access to a raft of extra stuff (extra stuff always comes on rafts), which Gamespot reveals will include:

Endurance Mode - "Survive the extreme conditions of Endurance Mode."

Star Wars: Episode VIII adds Gugu Mbatha-Raw

7 October 2015 6:42 PM, PDT

The casting on Rian Johnson's Star Wars movie continues...

Right now, the Star Wars movie universe (are we calling it that?) has a fair few balls in the air. There's this December's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to which Jj Abrams is putting the finishing touches. Meanwhile, Gareth Edwards is currently shooting 2016's Star Wars: Rogue One.

Next after that? Looper helmer Rian Johnson is taking the megaphone for Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Thus far on the film, we've heard that Benicio del Toro is set to play a villain role in the movie. We'd assume that a fair few of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast will be turning up as well.

And now we learn that they'll be joined - as had been rumoured - by Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The Belle star is currently in negotiations to join the cast, although there's no firm »

Daniel Craig on James Bond: "I want to move on"

7 October 2015 6:37 PM, PDT

Following Spectre, if Daniel Craig did another James Bond film, it'd be "for the money".

This story contains fruity language.

Daniel Craig is on the promotional trail right now for the new James Bond movie, Spectre, which lands in UK cinemas in two weeks. He'd previously said that he had at least one more James Bond adventure on his deal, but a new interview with Time Out suggests that he at the very least wants a break from 007.

On returning to play Bond again post-Spectre, Craig said that "Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on."

That's not uncommon actor talk at the end of a gruelling movie. but then he double-bagged his reluctance by saying "I »

This Is England ’90 episode 4 review: Winter

7 October 2015 11:45 AM, PDT

Shane Meadows concludes This Is England’s final series with painful truths, great performances and a message of love and forgiveness…

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 Winter

It was the ending nobody wanted for Combo, which is why, by the law of drama, it had to happen. This Is England 90’s message of love and forgiveness above all else wouldn’t have rung out so clearly if we hadn’t seen the potential of Combo’s new start destroyed by merciless retribution.

The final shot of this episode, and so of the whole series, was Milky lowering his head in regret and shame. That revealed the show’s ultimate lesson: in the words of Woody, forgiveness is underrated. Milky’s torment at the wedding showed that the reverse is also true: if mercy is a virtue, then revenge is a weight around your neck.

The injustice of Combo’s death was searing. »

How online streaming is changing TV storytelling

7 October 2015 9:29 AM, PDT

Binge-watching and no ad-breaks aren't just making TV more convenient, they're changing the ways television's stories are told...

If the TV set were to be laid out in its own visual March of Progress, the set which first crawled out of the primordial ooze would be the chunky box in the corner, rabbit ears jutting out from its top. As various knobs and dials fall off, the box continues to gain mass, growing bigger, deeper, and more rectangular. Next come the sleek high-definition TVs proudly bolted to the space place on living room walls once reserved for framed artwork. Taking the place of Homo Sapiens, at the front of the evolutionary queue, emerges the laptop/tablet combo. Today, the internet is ever increasingly becoming the default manner in which TV is consumed, and Reed Hastings, Netflix’s CEO, has boldly proclaimed that all television will be on the internet in ten to twenty years. »

Sony's SingStar: what's gone wrong?

7 October 2015 7:30 AM, PDT

Since a big relaunch of the SingStar videogame last year, updates have been very thin on the ground. So what's happened?

The impending arrival of Christmas brings with it the also-impending need for party games to keep people entertained, lest they get inebriated and hurl abuse at each other post-turkey/vegetarian alternative.

Sony and its PlayStations had this market cornered at one stage. First came the EyeToy, then came SingStar, and then came the Buzz series of buzzer-centric quiz games.

Buzz has been seemingly retired now, and the EyeToy has been usurped by an assortment of motion capture technologies that people invariably don't use (how's that Kinect sensor bar doing?). But SingStar was relaunched by Sony for the PlayStation 4 last autumn, with the promise of a new beginning for the karaoke game franchise.

It would be fair to say that things have not gone to plan.

Wonder Woman movie settings revealed

7 October 2015 7:06 AM, PDT

Exclusive: with mild spoilers, we reveal the settings we'll see in Warner's 2017 Wonder Woman movie...

Nb: The following contains minor spoilers for the Wonder Woman movie.

We've had a few official morsels of information about director Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman movie so far - most significantly, the casting of Gal Gadot in the lead and the first few shots of the actress in her superhero garb. We also know that Chris Prine will co-star as Steve Trevor, who in the comics is a Us military intelligence officer and Wonder Woman's love interest.

While official story details have remained in short supply, occasional rumours have broken out - including one that Wonder Woman will be set during the time of the First World War.

We've now learned from a well-placed source (who will remain anonymous) that Wonder Woman will, in fact, take place in three distinct time periods. It's even possible, »

Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection book announced

7 October 2015 5:43 AM, PDT

Collectors of Japanese Snes games rejoice: there's a book on Super Famicom box art coming out next year...

Now this looks like an absolute corker: an entire book dedicated solely to the often spectacular design of Japanese Super Famicom videogame boxes.

Box art is something we've a huge soft spot for, and we dedicated a top 50 list to our favourite retro videogame box designs back in 2013. Naturally, lots of the designs featured in that list were from the Super Famicom (or Snes, as it's otherwise known in these parts), including Super Kiki KaiKai, Parodius and Prince Of Persia.

Super Famicom: The Box Art Collection, published by Bitmap Books, will showcase no fewer than 250 pieces of art, with each presented at full size in a handsomely-bound, square tome. Each entry will be accompanied by a description and interviews with collectors. Games covered range from the big hits (The Legend Of Zelda: »

Scream Queens episode 4 review: Haunted House

7 October 2015 5:00 AM, PDT

Scream Queens is slick, engrossing slasher TV, even if its body count hasn't yet risen to the expected heights...

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 Haunted House

At its heart, Scream Queens is a slasher series. Strip away the high-camp tone, the starry cast and the satire, and what you get is a show about young people getting stalked by a serial killer. And part of a slasher show's job is to keep its audience on edge, to keep them always anticipating the next episode and fear for the lives of their favourite characters. Up until this point, I've been looking forward to Scream Queens for the almost schlocky entertainment factor. The mystery had yet to catch fire but Haunted House, the first of several Halloween-themed episodes (always a good thing in my eyes), changed that and upped the ante considerably.

We start off with perhaps the show's funniest sequence yet. »

Cyberpunk 2077: "far, far bigger" than The Witcher 3

7 October 2015 4:31 AM, PDT

CD Projekt is Red teasing its sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077 - a "far, far bigger" game than The Witcher 3, the developer says...

With the increasing popularity of the Witcher series, developer CD Project Red has grown into one of the most respected purveyors of RPGs currently operating.

Its latest game, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, is the final entry in the series and widely regarded as the best one yet. But according to the studio's visual effects artist Jose Teixeira, CD Projekt Red's next game, Cyberpunk 2077, will be even bigger and more complex.

Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that CD Projekt Red has done before,” visual effects artist Jose Teixeira told McV. “Far, far bigger. “We're really stepping into the unknown in terms of complexity and size and problems we encounter.”

Cyberpunk 2077 will be the studio's first game outside the Witcher universe, and its first foray into science fiction. »
