Not a lot of new releases for the first full week of May, but there are some notable ones. Project CARS hits the PC worldwide and on the PS4 and Xbox One in Europe and Australia (North American PS4 and Xbox owners have to wait a week) after multiple delays. Wolfenstein gets a standalone DLC in The Old Blood coming for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which can be played even if you don’t have the main game. Hitting home video this week is the Kevin Costner led drama Black or White, the horror thriller The Pyramid, the historical drama Selma, and the romantic drama based on the best selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey...Read More
Marvel’s The Avengers was everything a comic book movie should be- exciting, have likeable characters, witty banter, and most of all it was fun. The film felt like a breath of fresh air after the darker comic book movies from rival DC. Now we’ve arrived at the main sequel after the follow-up solo pictures (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Could Joss Whedon and his capable cast pull off another billion dollar winner at the box office? Or would the film collapse under its own weight, suffering the fate of so many sequels? Would it best its predecessor or fall short? The answer is a mixed bag. In many ways Age of Ultron takes what the first Avengers movie did and upped the ante...Read More
The summer movie season is here, and that means plenty of action, comedy, and big special effects are headed to a screen near you. Below are some of the biggest releases for May that you may want to check out. So grab some popcorn and enjoy the trailers below!
Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron
Probably the most anticipated sequel of the year opens things up with a bang. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) creates an AI in the form of Ultron (James Spader) that threatens humanity, and it’s up to the Avengers- Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson), and Iron Man- to stop him...Read More
Not a huge week in terms of game releases, but the summer movie season does kick off in a big way come Friday. Already a hit in overseas markets, The Avengers: Age of Ultron storms into movie theaters across the US on Friday, along with the romance drama Far From the Madding Crowd (presumably for those handful that won’t be seeing Marvel’s anticipated sequel). On the gaming front you get to survive the zombie apocalypse with State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition on the Xbox One and PC, along with the JRPG Omega Quintet and playing on the links with The Golf Club Collector’s Edition...Read More
Very lackluster week for new releases, with the biggest being Shovel Knight coming to all three of Sony’s platforms. Not much arrives on home video either, where we get the first season of Teen Titans Go!, and a trio of action movies- The Marine 4: Moving Target, Everly (with Salma Hayek), and the Liam Neeson led sequel Taken 3. Theatrical releases are a mixed bag, with comedies Little boy and Rock the Kasbah, the thriller The Forger, the action adventure Kung Fu Jungle, and the fantasy The Age of Adaline. So, off we go to this week’s short list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.

Two big releases this week allow players to indulge themselves with plenty of chaos and bloodthirsty action. Mortal Kombat returns with all new fatalities and a hefty roster of fighters to do bloody battle with for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One (those PS3 and Xbox 360 owners sadly have to wait awhile, as the version for those systems has been delayed). PC owners get to jump into a life of crime and many leisure activities with the release of GTA V. Coming to home video are an array of choices, from horror (The Babadook, Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death), drama (Big Eyes, Map to the Stars), animated (Batman vs. Robin), and action (The Man with the Iron Fists 2, Kidnapping Mr. Heineken)...Read More
The first full week of April isn’t loaded with new releases, but it has a couple of big ones. First off, players can return to Drangleic and die all over again with Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, which moves the series proper to current gen consoles, complete with all DLC and new enemy placement. Friendlier dungeons might be found on the 3DS in Etrian Mystery Dungeon, and the New Nintendo 3DS gets its first big title Xenoblade Chronicles, the epic RPG from the Wii. The crime drama A Most Violent Year debuts on home video this week, along with the Ryan Reynolds dark comedy Voices and the horror film Rec 4. The big screen is loaded with drama this week, featuring The Longest Ride, Broken Horses, and The Sisterhood of Night...Read More
