    Video game adaptation Need for Speed was beaten by animated adventure Mr. Peabody & Sherman at the U.S. box office this past weekend. Tipped for number one, Need for Speed made a slightly disappointing $17.8 million overall, opening at number 3. Meanwhile, in its third week, Mr. Peabody & Sherman rose to top spot with an impressive $21.2 million.

    300: Rise of an Empire opened at number two with a debut haul of $19.1 million, failing to match the debut of its predecessor 300, which opened with $70.9 million back in 2007. Other new entires included Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club, opening in fifth place with just $8.3 million - the lowest opening for any of Tyler Perry films. Opening in just 66 cinemas, Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel came in at number eight while the crowd-funded Veronica Mars film opened at number ten.

    The first full trailer for the third season of US comedy Veep has been released. Julia Louis-Dreyfus reprises her role as Selina Meyer, the Vice President, as she gears up with a new campaign consultant and teases the possibility of a future Presidential run.

    The second series of Veep ended on a high with the President announcing he would not run for a second term. The series is the perfect antithesis to House of Cards so for all those who have finished binge watching Kevin Spacey, binge watch Dreyfus.
     
    Check out the trailer here..


    Season three of Veep premieres on HBO April 6th after the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones.

    Kevin Feige teases a Captain Marvel movie
    Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has been teasing the possibility of a female-led Marvel film for the past few weeks [see what he had to say about a Scarlett Johansson / Black Widow solo movie here] and in a recent interview with Badass Digest, he has indicated that they would rather use a new character, as opposed to one who's already been established in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    "Frankly, if we do a Black Widow movie after The Avengers: Age of Ultron, she’s been central in three or four movies, I don’t think we'd get the quote unquote credit for it. People would say, she’s already a big giant superhero. But if we’d had a great idea, we’d do it. I like the idea if we’re going to do [female lead], do a new one. Do a wholly new character, do an origin story. We’ve talking a lot about [Captain Marvel]. I think that would be very cool."

    A Captain Marvel film would certainly be interesting, and indeed there have been unconfirmed rumours that Carol Danvers could make an appearance in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. What do you think? Which female Marvel hero would you like to see getting her own movie?

    Piers McCarthy reviews the thirteenth episode of The Walking Dead Season 4...

    Rick and Carl seem like a distant memory at this point in The Walking Dead, with three episodes of their absence. Priority and focus has been put on Daryl (as it does by the end of episode 13), trying to unearth a character who has been a cool, yet under-developed character since the beginning. "Alone" is not entirely centred on Daryl, and/or his travelling buddy Beth, but they feature as much as Maggie, Bob and Sasha. It's only the five characters who appear throughout (with a brief nod to Glenn) and the majority of what we see appears like filler material, for an eventual arc we can't be sure of yet.

    Major spoilers follow

    Whereas the end of last week's episode finished on a piece of music overtly fitting to the point of cliché, music supervisor Thomas Golubic has picked a tune that compliments the scene completely. We begin on a flashback of Bob, wandering the barren landscape before he's picked up by Daryl and Glenn. Shaggy and painted with a melancholy expression, Bob is shown as the stereotypical lone survivor - apathetic yet willed on by survival instincts. It's not half as eye-opening as Michonne's flashback but then Bob is not a character that deserves much attention and scrutiny. It acts as a reminder to what Bob is about and what he has become, especially as we watch him throughout the episode as a new man in a new group. However, it's nothing fascinating and only the music sticks to mind (a second play of it at the end does little to remind you of Bob in his old days, and only of that song you fancy downloading).

    We had thunder and lightning setting the atmosphere last week, this week's weather of choice is fog. Once again, it's a simple device - using the everyday aspects of weather - to create tension, and it's odd that fog has never been exploited in the show as much. That said, it's not that wonderful as a set-piece, mostly because it's not the coolest clan of characters in amongst it. Furthermore, it's over too fast with a lack of tension. Bob is bitten, albeit, but only on his bandage, letting him get away scot-free with no drama lingering on from the accident.

    The motivation of why they're out in the fog is, of course, Maggie searching diligently for Glenn. The sooner the pair are reunited the better as the divide is causing more eyes to roll than Dale's flagrant love for Andrea in season 1 and 2. Maggie sets off on her own, leaving Sasha and Bob together, having to follow a day or so behind Maggie in order to maintain the group. It's all a lacklustre attempt to draw tension out of the divide of characters who, ultimately, will and must find each other. You have some development occurring between Sasha and Bob, in romantic terms, but it's hard to tell how long this will last when Tyreese comes back into the picture. Speaking of Tyreese, the reuniting of our entire group looks more and more likely to happen now that most seem on the trail of Terminus. All characters (sans Beth) find themselves on the train track by the end. It's only a matter of time.

    Beth and Daryl's story needn't be synopsised, but one major occurrence involves Beth's disappearance after a deadly swarm of walkers in a sanctuary they find. If Daryl had appeared near-invincible throughout the show, "Alone" is finally chipping away at that image. Not only can he not keep up with Beth and protect her fully, he is almost savaged but the fastest walkers we've come across so far. They come crashing through the door of the funeral home the pair are occupying, nearly besting the archer on a few occasions. The funeral home they take shelter in is an interesting location, filled with symbolism about death, mourning and family. All of these points are touched on, succinctly at that (a positive note). One thing I thought of was the house is in pristine condition - which the characters mention, thinking it's still lived in - and so Beth may not have sped off, driving the car, but could have been taken. It might be a farfetched idea, but it crossed my mind all the same.

    Right before the last scene, showing Bob, Sasha and Maggie reunited, we see Daryl exhausted to a point where he’s sitting alone in the middle of the road. A group of men come across him, circling him like a pack of wolves. In true Daryl style, he fiercely attacks one, holding the arrow point to the floored man’s face. The man laughs and gets up, getting into a conversation about bows and Daryl’s weapon specifics. There’s a bond already made, despite the hostility surrounding the situation. In the end, Daryl sees himself at a loss and he tells him his name, lowering his bow after the introduction. In fairness, the men he’s now found himself with seem like a fitting match (we can expect the one who wants Daryl’s vest to get something else from our hero), if everything else falls through.

    According to rumours from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Halle Berry’s role as Storm has been all but cut from the superhero sequel. A source apparently told the New York Daily News that Berry "only has one line in the whole movie [and] they’re not telling her until the movie comes out."
     
    As a result of her pregnancy during the shoot, Berry previously revealed that her involvement in the film would be limited, stating that, "Storm probably won’t be as badass as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that."
     
    Assuming the report is true, Storm isn't the only character set to suffer due to the packed ensemble cast, with Bryan Singer previously revealing that Anna Paquin's Rogue had been cut from the film, before later suggesting that she could still make a brief appearance.

    Meanwhile, in other X-Men: Days of Future Past news, a tease has been released for the next trailer, which has been confirmed as dropping next Monday, March 24th...


    X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for release on May 23rd, with a cast that also includes X-Men veterans Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Lucas Till (Havok), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) alongside franchise newcomers Evan Peters (American Horror Story) as Quicksilver, Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) as Warpath, Fan Binbing (Iron Man 3) as Blink, Adan Canto (The Following) as Sunspot, Josh Helman (Mad Max: Fury Road) as William Stryker, Evan Jonigkeit (Girls) as Toad, and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) as Bolivar Trask.

    Following hot on the heels of yesterday's new trailer, Disney has released a clip from the upcoming live-action fairy tale Maleficent, which sees Angelina Jolie's Mistress of All Evil spreading her wings; check it out below via CBM...


    From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.


    Maleficent is set for release on May 30th, with Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland) directing a cast that also includes Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Imelda Staunton (The Pirates! Band of Misfits), Miranda Richardson (The Hours), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), and Lesley Manville (Romeo and Juliet). The film is set for release on May 30th.

    It looks like we can add another superhero movie to the 2015 schedule, with Den of Geek reporting that the classic British comic book character / children's series Bananaman is heading to the big screen, with the website Bananamanmovie.com suggesting that we'll "Peel the Power" next year.

    Bananaman is the alter-ego of Eric Wimp (a.k.a. Eric Twinge), a young schoolboy who transforms into the fruity superhero when he eats a banana. The character first appeared as a comic strip in Nutty in 1980 before transferring to The Dandy and The Beano, while he also made the jump to the small screen for a BBC animated series which was produced between 1983 and 1986.

    Mar del Plata, 2012.

    Directed by Sebastian Dietsch and Ionathon Klajman.
    Starring Pablo Caramelo, Lorena Damonte, Cecilia Echague, Daniela Nirenberg, Pablo G. Perez and Gabriel Zayat.

    SYNOPSIS:

    Comedy following two disillusioned friends who visit the seaside town of Mar del Plata to escape t
    heir humdrum lives, only to bump into an ex-girlfriend and her successful new husband.




    Mar del Plata is nothing if not a coming-of-age story; its central characters attempt to throw off the shackles of boyhood immaturity in the hope of becoming better, well-rounded men. That may sound just like any other story of this particular sub-genre, but the real genius of this film is that those very same characters are in the early thirties, having long since come-of-age.

    The film’s narrative tells two parallel stories. The first is that of Joaquin (Perez) and David (Zayat); two lifelong friends who share the complex mix of banter and bickering that you’d expect of any long-term bromance. The pair are wondering hopelessly through their early thirties and have become fed up with life in general, falling somewhere between teenage angst and a full-blown mid-life crisis. From the very beginning of the film, it is clear that the real laughs here are going to be supplied by the characters of David and Joaquin, and the relationship between them. From their endless squabbling to the occasional bit of slapstick, they remain humorous and strangely relatable throughout.

    The second narrative string running through Mar del Plata is that of Elena (Damonte) and Lautaro (Caramelo), a pair of successful individuals who make something of a mismatched couple. It is made fundamentally clear that these two just don’t quite fit together, and the tension between them is only heightened when they learn that they are staying in the same resort as Joaquin, Elena’s ex-boyfriend.

    Mar del Plata
    is billed as a romantic comedy, and while it certainly meets that criteria (you will laugh a fair amount), it’s really more of a bromantic comedy; the real core of the plot, and indeed the vast majority of the laughs, stem from the bond between Joaquin and David. There’s an all-too-familiar love-triangle element, and plenty of romantic heart-to-hearts on the beach, but the most believable, relatable and ultimately enjoyable relationship is that of the boyhood chums. Mar del Plata explores male friendships, and their familiar reluctance to ‘grow up’, as well as any comedy in recent years, even if it sacrifices some of the classical romance to do it.

    Chris Cooper reviews the final part of IDW's Utrom Empire series....

    "Baxter’s gambit reaches its endgame, but Fugitoid has some tricks up his sleeve! With the fate of the Utrom race in his hands, whom will the robot scientist end up saving? The dramatic past of the Utroms will have dire consequences in the present day!"

    Misleading could be the best way to describe the Utrom Empire mini-series. Yep, misleading. But not in a bad way.

    The covers are the main reason, with the Triceratons and their rebellion front and centre. In actual fact, this story has focused on Krang and Fugitoid, two characters that I always thought you were just 'OK'.

    Well now I don't, as writer Paul Allor has made both so rounded; with conflicting thoughts and realistic and a moral grey scale. This isn't a simple case of good and bad. Characters make choices that not only fit their character, but progress the story in natural ways and make complete sense in the this world.

    Making an evil character sympathetic is usually the signal of a down turn, as what made them strong in the first place is replaced with 'awwwww'. Not here. Krang is still a cruel and evil Utrom, but you at least understand how he came to this point. It also raises the question of how far would go to save those you cherish? His loyalty to his race is unquestionable, even it leads him down a questionable path.

    Krang's more noble brand of evil is further back up when you realise just how much a evil little what-not Baxter Stockman is. A purer evil (well put Allor). Oh how fun it is to see him get put in his place! I pointed at the image and yelled 'yeah stuff you Stockman!'. It may have been more colourful than that...

    Then we have the bad ass Fugitioid! Not two words I thought I'd be putting together at the start of this. He has some tough choices to make, but proves himself a true hero, and one not to be messed with. Honeycutt was a bit wet at first; a bit of a pushover I felt. But now he's taking names and it's very enjoyable.

    Allor has strong handle on these characters and what makes them tick. The only thing I'd change is the number of issues! A few more, with more of the actual rebellion and its effect on the planet, would have been good to see. The folly of Krang's Father was plain to see admittedly, but I only want more because I liked it so much.

    On the art front it was a slightly more mixed bag for me. Andy Kuhn's work on the Utrom parts of the story is fantastic. I love his Utroms and the different appearances and characters he has created from a basic design. He's made them interesting, and that has formed a big part of the engagement I felt. I wasn't so sure about his TMNT parts though, with to my eye a jarringly long faced Splinter and an April that looked older. These are small issues though, as overall I felt his work has suited the story particularly well and been a really strong aspect.

    Utrom Empire was not the series I was expecting. But I got far more than I was expecting too, and with a very interesting ending, I'm left hoping that we see more of this team in the future. IDW continue to surprise and delight and further prove themselves to be trusty custodians of this license.

    Star Wars: Episode VII set to roll cameras in May
    Finally some Star Wars: Episode VII news! Not terribly surprising news mind you. But at the rate it's been coming we'll take anything won't we?

    So then, lets get down to it. Here's the news from StarWars.com...

    "Disney and Lucasfilm are excited to announce that principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, will commence May 2014, and will be based at London's historic Pinewood Studios.

    This will be the first Star Wars film to start shooting in the month of May. Lucasfilm has documented the first day of principal photography for every instalment of the Star Wars saga:

    March 22, 1976 -- The first day of principal photography in Tozeur, Tunisia, for Star Wars. A crew of 130 ventures into the desert in 42 trucks and cars, including eight army trucks full of equipment. The first shot was completed at 9:35 a.m.

    March 5, 1979 -- The first day of principal photography in Finse, Norway, for The Empire Strikes Back. The crew endures the subzero temperatures, frostbite, heavy winds, and avalanches to pull off the first shot within 65 minutes of setup.

    January 11, 1982 -- The first day of principal photography at EMI Elstree Studios outside of London for Return of the Jedi. Although inside a studio, the set must weather a sandstorm in a scene that would ultimately be cut from the film.

    June 26, 1997 -- The first day of principal photography at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, England, for The Phantom Menace. Ending a long absence from the director's chair, George Lucas shoots a sequence in a bluescreen-lined set with actors Ian McDiarmid and Ray Park.

    June 26, 2000 -- The first day of principal photography for Attack of the Clones at Fox Studios Australia. In their new home Down Under, the production crew once again photographs actor Ian McDiarmid three years to the day after Episode I started shooting.

    June 30, 2003 -- The first day of principal photography for Revenge of the Sith at Fox Studios Australia. The first scenes shot feature Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor as Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, respectively, along with R2-D2.

    It has also been confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VII is set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, and will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces. No further details on casting or plot are available at this time."

    Star Wars: Episode VII will release in theatres on December 18, 2015.
