The King’s Man

Set during the Great War, a cacophony of chaos lead by Rasputin plots the deaths of millions, and it’s up to the oxford wearing gentleman spies of the Kingsman Secret Service to thwart the villain.

The newest trailer for The King’s Man has dropped, which gives a bit more of an insight into the story and the roles of Gemma Arterton, who plays Polly, and Djimon Hounsou, who takes on the role of Shola.

The King’s Man hits cinemas on Valentine’s Day 2020.

Birds of Prey

Warner Bros and DC Comics have released the highly anticipated trailer for their next movie, Bids of Prey: and the fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.

After releasing the first set of posters for the film, the trailer hints at the downright crazy and utter madness that we’re likely to see in the film.

You’ll be able catch to the antics of one Harley Quinn and her gal gang on the 7th of February.

PS Now Changes

Sony announced massive changes to their streaming/downloadable service, PlayStation Now, this week.

Not only did they drop the monthly price from $19.99 per month to $9.99 per month, they also added triple A marquee PS titles, including last year’s game of the year winner, God of War.

Infamous Second Son, GTA V and Uncharted 4 are also now available to download and play. These titles won’t stay in the library and will rotate out with other triple A games. The new additions will be available until the 2nd of January.

The changes to the pricing of the service now means you can pick up a three-month subscription for $24.99 and an annual subscription for $59.99.

However, PS Now is still only available in the US with no word on when or if it will be made available to other territories.

The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners

Skybound Interactive has announced a new The Walking Dead game titled Saints and Sinners.

The newest game set in Robert Kirkman’s apocalyptic world is a VR title for the Oculus and sees players trying to survive both zombie hordes and humans who’ve lost their humanity.

According to the game’s website, players will have choices that will have an impact on the story. There will also be a crafting system and plenty of places to explore.

Saints and Sinners is expected to launch early next year.
