If you had suggested even just a few years ago that Star Trek would be the more engaging, stable franchise ahead of the Disney-backed Star Wars, there’d be plenty queuing up to revoke your sci-fi credentials. How times have changed. With Star Wars (and Lucasfilm) scrambling to rejig their movie lineup for the near future, Star Trek is going in another, bolder direction: one where its current TV show, Star Trek Discovery, is making waves with non-fans, and everything they have in the pipeline looks like solid gold just waiting to be mined.It’s clear, then, that Star Wars - often viewed as a quasi-rival to its spacefaring cousin - can learn a lot from Star Trek. Of course, the two franchises differ in so many ways – one has Simon Pegg speaking in a funny accent and the other… actually, never mind – but it’s clear that Star Wars is now reaching a crossroads similar to the one Star Trek faced in which it must throw off the shackles of what’s … [Read more...] about Is franchise fatigue setting in? 6 ways Star Wars can learn from Star Trek’s current (and future) TV shows
Star wars 9 release date
A galaxy far, far away is about to look a lot emptier. The slate of new Star Wars movies, once looking fuller than Jabba's belly after a banquet, has been reportedly thinned considerably in the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story and its relatively low takings at the box office. In fact, it may be time to wave goodbye to any Star Wars stories for the foreseeable future.Collider believes that all Star Wars stories spin-offs are being put on ice (or should that be Carbonite?), so Lucasfilm can put all their attention into making Star Wars 9 the best trilogy topper it can possibly be. It's worth mentioning, though, neither Lucasfilm nor Disney have confirmed the report.That means there could be no Obi-Wan: A Star Wars Story or Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story. For better or worse, Lucasfilm are potentially putting all of their eggs into one basket before moving onto new projects, which is probably for the best in the long run.However, not all side projects have been shelved. Rian Johnson’s … [Read more...] about Some Star Wars spin-offs have been put on hold
GOOD NEWS, God of War fans – the game's creators have revealed it'll be longer than the other franchise entries so far. Here's everything we know, including the God of War 2018 release date, plus trailers, images, plot and more. God of War 2018 – what's the game about? God of War is an acclaimed hack-and-slash video game franchise from Sony's Santa Monica Studio. The 2018 entry to the series is simply called God of War, and lands as the eighth instalment overall. It's a direct sequel to 2010's God of War III, and is generally seen as a soft reboot for the franchise. What's exciting about God of War 4 is that it moves on from its traditional Greek mythology into a new Norse setting. Series protagonist Kratos is staying on as the protagonist, although he's also got a son called Atreus in this game too. The game picks up years after Kratos sought his revenge against the Olympian gods. Kratos now lives in a savage land inhabited by Norse gods, and is attempting to teach … [Read more...] about God of War PS4 release date – review, news, rumours and is it available on Xbox One?
Ready for some more Star Wars? Following hot on the heels of a brand-new movie series from the Game of Thrones creators comes this: multiple TV shows – so when can we expect to see them? As reported by ABC correspondent Clayton Sandell, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirms that we aren’t getting “just one” TV show (which we already knew about) but that a “few” small screen entries are in the works. Which means that, along with the Han Solo movie, Star Wars 9, Rian Johnson’s trilogy and the Thrones’ creators series, we’re getting at least a couple of TV series to complement it. That’s a lotta Star Wars. The TV series, which will more than likely find its home on Disney’s upcoming Netflix-style service, doesn't yet have a release date, but don’t expect anything pre-2020 as JJ Abrams’ trilogy-capper will probably be dominating all things Star Wars for some time to come. I’ve always thought that, despite … [Read more...] about Star Wars overload? We’re getting multiple TV shows from a galaxy far, far away
