What are you up to this weekend? Here’s our choices:
The first of the 2014 Fall Premieres has arrived in the form of Debra Messing and NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura. Messing is as charming, funny, serious and believable as always. Which is good because without her this show would be firmly in Taxi Brooklyn territory. What? Exactly. Continue reading…
Bungie’s Destiny is the biggest game of the year so far and apparently the highest-selling day one digital console release ever, but how does the actual game hold up against the massive expectations?
Well, if you’re a fan of Halo‘s tight gunplay, then you’ll be in heaven. However, if you’re expecting the kind of intense single-player narrative from Bungie’s days with Master Chief, then it may leave you wanting. But this is one of Destiny‘s main tricks; wide, open and full of excitement, it invites you to find your own stories.
And what stories they can be.
- Doctor Who Does What? In the Where? Or Is It When?
- Doctor Who Episode 2: Robotic Bugaboo
- Doctor Who: Men In Tights
Let’s see what the Doctor has in store for us this week… Continue reading…
Remember we told you a few months ago that this might happen? Well it’s happening.
Variety reports in passing that Magnificent Seven will be the next team up for the pair whose current film, The Equalizer is doing so well in festivals that a sequel is already in the works.
There’s bound to be some people who aren’t too happy with a classic being remade but The Magnificent Seven is fact a remake of Seven Samurai, and has been remade over an over and over again (a group of heroes from different backgrounds band together to fight off a villain and his many nameless henchmen, sound familiar Marvel fans?).
Ultimately movies like this are going to be remade so maybe we should just hope that the remakes are good. Right? Right.
I’m your density. I mean, your Destiny. Time to see what we’re up to this weekend!
The new Marvel TV series Agent Carter doesn’t début for some time yet by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. starts up again soon and the première episode os going to feature a flashback to the 1940s/50s featuring Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter, Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Durgan, and Kenneth Choi as Jim Morita, all reprising their roles from Captain America: The First Avenger. There’s no word on McDonough or Choi joining the cast of Agent Carter just yet but I kind of hope they rope as many of The Howling Commandos in as they can as well as Tommy Lee Jones as General Tommy Lee Jones and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark as much as possible.
Admittedly, these guys have careers, but hopefully they find some time.

Life is one long sand bunker.
Check out this awesome preview of the 2015 Star Wars Celebration Artist Alley.
Tom Hiddleston stopped by a music festival to sing some Hank Williams songs in preparation for playing Hank Williams in the upcoming Hank Williams movie.
I love Jeff Goldblum, you love Jeff Goldblum. Here he is doing what he does.
And since I’m on holiday here’s something I didn’t post the other day but meant to, a marketing banner for Avengers: Age of Ultron which clearly shows the new character Vision who will be played by Paul Bettany.
Not much to say here except that he looks like the colourful version of Vision does in the comics. That’s a good thing because the plain white version is boring as hell.
Also of interest: Captain America’s costume update, Iron Man’s armour tweaks (and a return to the red-dominant colour scheme), and Avengers Tower in the background clearly being the renovated Stark Tower from Avengers 1.
Here you go folks. Zack Snyder tweeted an official image of the new Batmobile. It looks… fine. There were some photos posted yesterday by a bystander of the thing parked in the street which I didn’t post, partly because i am on holiday and partly because they were terrible photos, but this gives a much better idea of the actual look.
Yes, there’s a big gun on the front. Apparently there is more than a little backlash around the web about the gun but I don’t really care. Every Bat-vehicle so far has had lots of guns and Zack Snyder’s style isn’t exactly subtle, so why are we at all surprised?
Besides, this new franchise has already missed the point of Superman and this movie in particular only exists to set up more movies in the future. Another studio tried that with one of the most popular superheroes on the planet this year and it went, uh, poorly.
Don’t get me wrong here: I sincerely hope this movie turns out to be fantastic. I really do. WE’re living in a golden age of nerd properties being cool and I want to revel in every moment of it before it passes. I just have no faith that this director and this writer are going to deliver a good movie. They couldn’t even come up with a good title after all.
We’ve already seen a boat load of posters for this movie but this time we see Katniss’ face!
Some of the funniest jokes in 22 Jump Street, including an entire montage during the end credits, were all the teasing of future sequels. These were all making fun of the notion that the studio would take their success and then run it into the ground by endlessly sequelizing it.
So now the studio is taking that success and starting to endlessly sequelize it.
