Mary Poppins Returns Trailer Features Dick Van Dyke

Here’s the first official look at Disney’s forthcoming Mary Poppins sequel, featuring Emily Blunt, Ben Wishaw, Emily Mortimer and a 92 year-old Dick Van Dyke dancing on a table.

Mary Poppins Returns is directed by Rob Marshall, (Chicago, Into The Woods), and is a direct sequel to the 1964 original with Blunt taking over the title role from Julie Andrews. The main plot of the movie rattles along like so:

Set in 1935 London, Jane  and Michael Banks are now grown-up, with Michael still living in the house on Cherry Tree Lane. He lives there with his three children, Annabel, John and Georgie and their housekeeper, Ellen. After Michael’s wife’s death, Mary Poppins comes back to the Banks family with street lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), and eccentric cousin Topsy (Meryl Streep)

The story, which picks up 20 years later, is based upon the Mary Poppins books and as the trailer demonstrates is full of nostalgia, specifically with the return of Dick Van Dyke who plays the son of Mr Dawes Snr, the old bank owner, a character played by Dyke in the original movie. Marshall has kept true to the elements which made Poppins such a classic, opting to use hand drawn animated sequences rather than CGI.

Mary Poppins Returns is scheduled for release on 19th December.

Battlefield V Trailer Pushed Bro Gamers Over The Edge.

Last night, live on YouTube the new Battlefield game trailer was revealed and like everything nowadays there soon followed much foaming at the mouth and spitting of rage.

A certain section of gamers and fans of the series went apocalyptic over the use of a female character in the trailer, raging at the developers for being ‘historically inaccurate’ with the new content, because it featured a woman.

Last night, live on YouTube the new Battlefield game trailer was revealed and like everything nowadays there soon followed much foaming at the mouth and spitting of rage.

A certain section of gamers and fans of the series went apocalyptic over the use of a female character in the trailer, raging at the developers for being ‘historically inaccurate’ with the new content, because it featured a woman.

It didn’t matter that tanks careered through buildings, trucks were dropping out of the sky, planes were crashing all around whilst soldiers, complete with facepaint, biker jackets, mohawk hair and metal prosthetic hands were jumping through top floor windows unscathed. No, these excessive, disproportionate details were fine, it was the inclusion of a female character which shat all over every aspect of the ‘historical accuracy’ this game was selling.

It’s a fucking video game with over-the-top action which is engineered to excite and entertain the player and the only true way this can be achieved is when reality is detached. Unsurpisingly the trailer took a beating on social media with bro-gamers using the hashtags #genderfield and #notmybattlefield.

Fans, who weren’t gagging on their toxic masculinity, were delighted to learn that the new Battlefield game won’t have a pay to win system or premium pass, meaning loot boxes won’t feature and once you buy the game any additional content will be free. Personally we can’t wait to see more.

Battlefield V is scheduled for release on Ocotber 19th.

Trailer for Biggie Smalls Murder Movie City Of Lies.

Here’s the first official trailer for Johnny Depp’s new movie City Of Lies, co-starring Forest Whitaker and directed by Brad Furman, (The Lincoln Lawyer).

The movie is based on the Pulitzer nominated novel LAbyrinth by Randall Sullivan which examined the details surrounding the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G and the possible involvement of the Los Angeles police department in their deaths.

The trailer, like most these days, gives away a large portion of the plot which rattles along like so:

Former LAPD detective, Russell Poole joins forces with journalist Jack Jackson nearly two decades after the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. to find out the truth.

Many documentaries have been made theorising what happened and who was ultimately responsible for the deaths of these two young artists, but City Of Lies apparently only deals with the the case work of Poole. A man who unearthed a load of details and information about an alleged conspiracy involving the LAPD.

City Of Lies is scheduled for release on September 7th.

When two enemies conspire to bring down the kingdom, T’Challa must team up, as the Black Panther, with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje—Wakanda’s special forces—to prevent a world war

The Black Panter is scheduled for general release on February 16th, 2018.

GTA:V Fan Film Starring Steven Ogg aka Trevor.

 

Ever since the release of Rockstar’s sandbox, open-world game Grand Theft Auto V we’ve kept a close eye on the rise of actor Steven Ogg.

Ogg, who provided the voice and was motion captured for the game’s deranged and depraved protagonist Trevor, has since popped up filling out roles in Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead and more recently Westworld and his latest appearance in a viral fan film for GTA:V is garnering a load of attention.

Ogg once again reprises his gaming role of Trevor but this time in the flesh as he guides a player around the virtual reality version of the hit game.
