Luther Series 5 Trailer Is Here…Finally.

I love the detective drama series Luther but there’s one massive reason this show get’s on my nerves. The wait.

After three years. Three, whole, long years fans and viewers are expected to pick up from where Idris Elba’s protaginist DCI John Luther left off. The first series consisted of six episodes and was broadcast in 2010. Due to it’s high ratings and popularity the BBC commissioned a second series almost immediately, which consisted of only four episodes and was aired in 2011. Following on from this a further four episodes were filmed for series three but the didn’t hit the screens until 2013 and then almost three years later we got series 4 which was a paltry two episode affair. Now here we are three years after the last series aired with just 16 episodes in total over almost a decade. A fucking decade!

Anyway the trailer for series 5 is above. Luther is back solving crime and locking super villians up and some character is returning that we all thought was dead…but none of us can really remember as it’s been that fucking long ago!


Tim Rogers Hilariously Dissects Red Dead 2

Personally speaking I think Rockstar’s latest open world game Red Dead Redemption 2 is sublime and a shining example of how games are overtaking movies and TV as a form of immersive storytelling.

Yes I have questioned why I’ve spent time stacking virtual bales of hay or lifting virtual sacks of grain or rooting through a virtual chest of drawers for a virtual tin of hair pomade, but the detail, story and level of immersion has me utterly fixated.

That being said there are problems in Red Dead 2 and who better to highlight these than Kotaku’s very own sardonic Tim Rogers. Just let this man review every game from now on.

Breaking Bad Movie Gets A Title And A Premise.

*This original post was featured on our sister site Sequels Prequels.*

Call me Sherlock ”Meth Lab Motor’ Holmes because I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that we hadn’t seen the last of Jesse Pinkman or Walter White in Vince Gilligan’s amazing Albequerqiverse.

Yesterday, in an announcement TV fans didn’t see coming, series creator Vince Gilligan revealed that there will be a Breaking Bad movie and it will focus on the fate of Jesse Pinkman, who we all watched drive off into the sunset with an acute case of post traumatic stress disorder.

Greenbrier will begin production as early as next month and will be a straight sequel to the award-winning crime drama series and will also tie up the fates of a few periphery characters we may have forgotten about, (Badger?). Actor Aaron Paul will reprise his role and there’s even a rumour Bryan Cranston could return in flashback scenes as Walter White, although he has stated he has yet to see the script.

As a long time fan of the original series and spin-off Better Call Saul, (which, in my humble opinion is the superior of the two), I think Gilligan is doing something very special. Stretching an epic story with rich characters across two series and now a movie. His plan, so far, hasn’t suffered from any form of weakness or dilution and it’s exciting to watch a master storyteller create an entire universe these complex, rich and diverse characters inhabit.

No word yet if the movie will be a TV feature only or will get theatrical release.

Twelve Deadwood Cast Members Confirm Return For Movie.

HBO’s terrifically, gritty and sweary, western drama Deadwood is finally getting a movie and now it seems a dozen key characters will be returning for the big screen production.

Series creator David Milch has written a script and Daniel Minahan has been named as director and production of the Deadwood movie is now officially underway and today’s announcement that a dozen original cast members will be reprising their roles has sent fans of the series into meltdown.

The twelve returning cast members are as follows:

Ian McShane (Al Swearengen)

The movie will be set 10 years after the series finale and these characters and more will all be reunited to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood where former rivalries are reignited, as they all face the changes modernity and time have wrought.

No word yet if this will be a TV feature or will be theatrically released but for now a script, director and cast is in place and Deadwood the movie is scheduled for completion next year.

LCD Soundsystem’s Music Vid Brings All The Feels

Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best. It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
 

50 Minutes Of Fallout 76 Gameplay.

Game developer Bethesda are releasing their latest entry in the Fallout gaming franchise next month, but tech website Gamespot managed to record 50 minutes of their early Fallout 76 experience and were kind enough to share it with the world.

The game looks fantastic and in our personal opinion any fears we may have had about the franchise losing it’s allure, now multiplayer has been introduced, dissipated.

Although this title and it’s fresh direction still seems to divide opinion among fans.

Muse’s Latest Music Video Is Rammed with 80s References.

I personally don’t mind Muse as a band but throughout their career they’ve always managed to produce some of the more inventive and entertaining music videos.Their latest for the single Pressure is no exception.

Directed by filmaker Lance Drake it stars the band and legendary actor Terry Crews and is rammed full of pop culture and movie references from the 80s, ranging from the more obvious Back To The Future and Critters to the more obscure like The Exterminator and Fright Night.

It merits a couple of watches to catch them all. Good luck.
