Earlier this week the trailer for Naughty Dog’s long awaited game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was finally released.
As per, the award winning game developer did not disappoint with the trailer hitting all the right marks for fans. Except there was a slight problem with the trailer’s content, more specifically it turned out some of the footage used was from another game.
Accusations ran riot on social media until Naughty Dog themselves admitted that they had indeed used some artwork from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. The detail had been spotted by Ubisoft employee Azaïzia Aymar who took to social media and declared:
“I get the ‘thief’ title now!”
Ouch! Turns out it was all an innocent mistake and Naughty Dog apologised for the error by releasing the following statement:
“In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen. We want to sincerely apologise to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”
We doubt that this ‘mix-up’ will have any detrimental effect on the launch day sales of the game.
Here’s the critically acclaimed short film The Chickening which, due to it’s highly successful debut at last year’s Fantastic Fest, is now available to all, thanks to YouTube.
The Chickening is a ‘classic film remix’ from the warped mind of Nick DeBoer which you can watch in it’s full surreal, f**ked up glory above.
It was once dubbed the most absurd and surreal photograph of the 20th Century, a snapshot from 1970 of a meeting which took place in the White House between the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon and one of the most iconic singers in history Elvis Presley.
Now that quirky story of exactly how that picture was taken is to be told in a Hollywood rendition of the meeting. Starring Kevin Spacey as Nixon and Michael Shannon as Elvis the film will apparently explore the details behind the meeting, which were a lot stranger than the picture itself.
Elvis & Nixon is set for general release on April 29th.
Here’s the trailer for Jeff Nichols’ much anticipated sci-fi flick Midnight Special, starring Michael Shannon, Joel Edgarton, Adam Driver, Sam Sheppard and Kirsten Dunst.
The plot of Midnight Special rattles along like so:

Joined by Joel Edgerton and Kirsten Dunst’s characters, this group must race to get Alton to a secret location all while being hunted by an extreme religious sect led by Sam Shepard and a government task force headed up by Adam Driver.
Midnight Special is due for release on April 15th

Their next move was then to bet against the banks after which the dark underbelly of the financial industry was fully exposed.
The Big Short is due for release this Christmas.
