How To Train Your Dragon 2 – Official Opening Scene – Animation Sequel HD

how-to-train-your-dragon-2How To Train Your Dragon 2 is the sequel to… yes, you guessed it.

That said, this was airing in Odeon cinemas last weekend, and presumably beyond, preceeding The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I’m not a massive fan of CGI kids films, as regular readers will know, but when I’ve sat through multiple bloody adverts, then multiple trailers, including one for this film in 3D! And then we get… a five-minute opening scene for this film – which was actually in 2D, so rather a con there – I was just thinking, “When will Spider-man start!!!???”

It’s been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favourite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 features the voices of Kit Harington, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett, Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, T.J. Miller, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Djimon Hounsou, Craig Ferguson and it’s released on July 4th in the UK.

Warface – Xbox 360 Launch Trailer

warface
Warface is a free first-person shooter, from Crytek, which has just been launched on Xbox 360, after coming out on PC last October. A PS3 version has been forever promised since 2012, but has yet to make an appearance.

The game features four different classes: Rifleman, Medic, Engineer, and Sniper; the main functions of each class acting in a similar manner to Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Each class has its own unique type of primary weapons (e.g. assault rifles for the Rifleman) and “specials” (excluding the sniper class) and are each uniquely suited for different roles.

Bear in mind it’s a free game, so when I saw the trailer I thought, “This ain’t Call of Duty!”

So it didn’t work for me, but maybe it will for you. Check out the Warface trailer below: Read more »

Veronica Mars – DVD released on May 12th

veronica-mars

Veronica Mars is a film which started life as a TV series from 2004-2007, with Kristen Bell as a high-school student, then going to college, all the while moonlighting as a private investigator. The series picked up a cult following, so when Bell and creator Rob Thomas launched a Kickstarter project last March to raise $2m to fund a movie, they achieved that in ten hours and raised $5.7m in total.

The DVD is released on May 12th, and oddly, there’s no Blu-ray release, although this low-budget film already did the rounds on March 14th on iTunes, Google Play, Sky Store, Virgin Media, BT TV, Blinkbox, Xbox Video, Playstation Store, Dixons KnowHow Movies, Wuaki and UPC in Ireland, so maybe there’s not many people left to buy it who are going to?

The DVD does feature an exclusive extra, however: By The Fans: The Making of the Veronica Mars Movie – Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell and the entire Veronica Mars cast take you from its record-breaking Kickstarter launch to the first day on set and beyond!

Also released on the same day is a DVD Complete Boxset of the entire 64-episode TV series.

Synopsis:
Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her on the eve of graduating law school. While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.

Written and directed by series creator Rob Thomas, Veronica Mars stars original show cast members Kristen Bell (House of Lies, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Jason Dohring (The Ringer), Read more »

House of Dust – Official Trailer #1 – Horror Movie HD

house-of-dustHouse of Dust is a forthcoming horror film featuring college students who explore an abandoned mental asylum, and accidentally shatter canisters holding the cremains of former mental patients. Inhaling the dusty ash filling the air, they’re soon possessed by the souls once held within them. One, is a convicted serial killer from 1950…

Written and directed by A.D. Calvo, the cast features Inbar Lavi, Steven Grayhm, Eddie Hassell, Holland Roden and John Lee Ames, so there’s no-one famous in there, but it looks like a film that’s well worth watching.

House of Dust hasn’t yet got a UK release date, but it seems only to be coming out for the home market in the US, so the same will most likely follow in the UK.

Octodad Dadliest Catch – PS4 Launch Trailer

Octodad-Dadliest-Catch
Octodad Dadliest Catch is a bizarre new game from Young Horses, Inc, and a sequel to 2010′s freeware game, Octodad. You control Octodad in completing chores typical of the mundane suburban father, but complicated by the fact that he is an octopus in disguise.

Same as the first game, Dadliest Catch requires the player to control the protagonist, Octodad, as he maneuvers his way through increasingly complex challenges all while attempting to hide the fact that he is a cephalopod in human clothing. The player can control one of two sets of tentacles, mimicking arms and legs, switching between the two with a single button.

A multiplayer co-op mode is also available where up to four players control four limbs. Most of the game’s humour derives from the slapstick stumbling that results from attempting to move around in a normal fashion and complete mundane activities without knocking people over.

I had absolutely no idea what was going on in Octodad Dadliest Catch, but if it’s your bag, then it’s available from this Wednesday.
