The Last Of Us Part II Trailer – PS4

The Last Of Us Part II

The Last Of Us Part II is the forthcoming sequel to the 2013’s The Last Of Us, in case that might’ve slipped you by, and it was easily my favourite game of that year and one of my favourites of the past decade, so much so that I played through it twice on the PS3. I’ve also played the Remastered version on PS4 but not all the way through.

The trailer, shown live at the Playstation Experience 2016, tells us little, but clearly, Troy Baker reprises his role of Joel, while Ashley Johnson returns as Ellie.

No release date is yet known for this second entry in the series, but I would expect it in either summer or Christmas of 2017.

Check out our review of The Last Of Us on PS3, and also the The Last Of Us Part II trailer below, plus our complete walkthrough of the first game, and click on the picture of Ellie for the full-size version:

Death Stranding – 4K Trailer – Mads Mikkelsen

Death Stranding

Death Stranding is the forthcoming game from Hideo Kojima, starring actor Norman Reedus (Triple 9) and this new trailer, shown at the The Game Awards 2016, features both Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange) and Guillermo del Toro (Mimic).

Developed by Kojima Productions, Kojima described the game at E3 as a sort-of action game, but with new and different elements, comparing it to 1987’s stealth title Metal Gear, and one of the game’s main themes through a short story by Kōbō Abe, in which the first tool created by humans was a stick, meant as protection by putting a distance between oneself and “bad things”, followed by a rope in order to secure things.

It all looks very bizarre, but certainly something to take notice of when it’s finally released, on a date yet to be announced.

Sully: Miracle On The Hudson – The non-disaster movie is a disaster – The DVDfever Cinema Review

sullyb

Sully

Sully is the one where the studio had to add “Miracle on the Hudson” to the UK title because most people outside of the US wouldn’t remember the nickname of pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger (played by Tom Hanks) who pulled a Homer when both engines failed soon after take-off following an attack by idiotic geese, and he landed the A320 airbus in the river, on January 15th, 2009.

He’s worked as a pilot for 42 years, yet he’s only going to be judged on 208 seconds on an A320 plane; we see him having nightmares about the event, he starts to doubt himself about the actions he took, and he’s classed as a national hero, yet the airline aren’t happy because there’s a ton of compensation claims to settle.

Furi on Xbox One – The DVDfever Review

dd-furi

Furi

Furi: Upon seeing the trailers for this game, I believed it to look like a fun adventure platform hack-and-slash style game, but I couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the game is an arena fighter – not what I was hoping for, but did I like it? Well.

The Belko Experiment Red Band Trailer 1 – John C McGinley

The Belko Experiment The Belko Experiment looks like Battle Royale in an office block of 80 Americans, in high-rise corporate office in Bogata, Colombia as a message booms out over the tannoy that they each have to kill 3 of their colleagues, or six of them will be killed instead. Naturally, they try to rally against this situation, but quickly find they have trackers in the back of their heads that will explode due to non-compliance.

With no means of escape, they don’t have long to comply…. perhaps more than 20 seconds, though.

Directed by Greg McLean (Guardians of the Galaxy) from a script by James Gunn (also GotG), and starring Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker, Adria Arjona, John C McGinley (Scrubs) and Tony Goldwyn (Ghost), this looks awesome, even if the whole deal has been done before.

The Belko Experiment is released in the US on March 17th, 2017, but as of yet there’s no UK date.

Incarnate – Official Trailer 1 – Aaron Eckhart

Incarnate Incarnate, Devil Incarnate… in case I had to explain it, but the fact I might’ve had to might show how bad this film could be.

Aaron Eckhart takes the lead as Dr. Seth Ember, a scientist who avoids exorcisms by having the ability to enter the subconscious minds of the possessed, and in this film, he must save a young boy from the grips of a demon with powers never seen before, while facing the horrors of his past… but for a film from the producers of Insidious and The Visit, this looks very average at best.

Directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas), from a script by Ronnie Christensen, the film also stars Carice van Houten, David Mazouz, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Emjay Anthony, Incarnate is out now in the US but as of yet there’s no UK date. Don’t hold your breath.

Sully leads the new cinema releases & trailers w/e December 2nd 2016

sully This weekend there are EIGHT new films out for you to choose from: a disaster movie of sorts in Sully: Miracle On The Hudson, coming of age comedy/drama in The Edge of Seventeen, the wrong man to meet in Mr Right, real-life boxing drama in Bleed For This, French mystery in The Unknown Girl, British comedy/drama in Womble Movie, bizarre Austrian drama in The Dreamed Ones, and Disney CGI in Moana.

Sully is the nickname for pilot and accidental hero Chesley Sullenberger, who had to glide his plane along the water in the Hudson River, saving all of his 155 passengers.

Dubbed the “Miracle on the Hudson” (hence the subtitle to the UK release), this film will be coming out almost 8 years to the date when he had to carry out the manoeuvre, yet hated the subsequent press intrusion into his life, and didn’t want to be thought of as a hero.

Directed by Clint Eastwood, from a script by Todd Komarnicki, based on the novel from Chesley Sullenberger, himself, the film Anna Gunn, Aaron Eckhart, Sam Huntington and Laura Linney.

And with Tom Hanks in the lead role, is he going for yet another Oscar? Hasn’t he got enough?? However, is 208 seconds of near-disaster enough to make a feature-length movie?

Hit or Miss? Verdict:

Die Hard Trilogy on PSone – The DVDfever Review

dd-die-hard-trilogya

Die Hard Trilogy

Die Hard Trilogy: Welcome to the party pal!

We are now in December and if you love it or hate it, Christmas is almost here. To some that means: family, gifts, a religious holiday or time for overeating to the point of throwing up; but to me it means it’s time to break out Die Hard and watch John McClane wreak havoc upon the plans of Hans Gruber before dropping him off a hundred story window (sorry, spoilers!). Among the tripe of many movie-based videogames there are the shining few that brings hope to one of the most hated gaming categories and Die Hard Trilogy is among them. Let’s break out some turkey and put on our Christmas hats and play some Die Hard!

Nerve on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

nerve-featured

Nerve

Nerve centres around Venus Delmonico, aka Vee (Emma Roberts), whose world centres around social media and how important she feels when she gets likes and retweets and all the rest that entails.

She’s encouraged to take part in this titular game by best-friend Sydney (Emily Meade), where Watchers pay to watch this “game of truth or date without the truth”, while players play for cash and glory. Thing is… with there being so much you can watch online for free, why would you pay?? And since the game features teenagers who are expert hackers, why would they pay $20 for 24 hours of access when they could hack it for free in seconds? Yes, the plot is more flimsy than a sheet of cellophane.
