James Bond Retuns in SPECTREDecember 4th, 2014 18:50 pm

Details regarding the 24th James Bond film have been released and the title of the film is SPECTRE. In previous films such as You Only Live Twice, the terrorist organisation that James Bond was battling was called SPECTRE but with dots in the name as it was an acronym. In the introduction, SPECTRE was spelt without dots. The organisation was headed by Ernst Stavro Blofeld but in the film, the lead antagonist is Oberhauser who with his hench man Mr Hinx is up to something. It is rumoured that Oberhauser will turn out to be Blofeld but its just a rumour.

Also returning to help Bond is Q, the gadgetman along with other colleagues such as M and Miss Moneypenny. The Bond women as they prefer to be called instead of Bond Girls are Madeleine Swann and Lucia Sciarra but as for their roles, its not been revealed yet which side they are on. Lucia Sciarra is played by Monica Bellucci who had a brief part at the start of The World is Not Enough.

It will see James Bond returning to the snow which the character hadn`t done since Die Another Day if you exclude the small visit he did in Quantum of Solace. Other locations he will visit will include Mexico City (Mexico), Rome (Italy), Tangiers and Erfound (Morocco). James will also be in London (United Kingdom), his home country. How long he will be in those countries for the film is anyones guess.

Rosetta Philae lands on cometNovember 12th, 20014 6:59 pm

Rosetta`s Philae lander has finally landed on its target, P67/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a ten year journey. After a tense wait, the signal that they had been hopping for finally came through much to everyone joy. Now it is hoped some of the questions the mission set out with can be answered. *Edit* Philae landed in a shaded area of the comet, this meant its onboard battery could receive the sunlight it needed to replenish its batteries. Scientists carried out as many experiments they could do before the batteries finally went dead. Now comes the analysing part.

The seventh Star Wars film is to be known as 'The Force Awakens'November 7th, 2014, 07:06 am

So now we know what the title of the seventh Star Wars film is going to be "Star Wars : The Force Awakens". Previously the film had just been known as "Star Wars : Episode VII". The principal photography has been completed and now onto post production. The title doesn`t give too much away, we can only speculate. There have been many rumours about what the film is about. All we know for definate is that main characters are returning along with new faces. The film The Force Awakens is out in December 2015 so still nearly a year to wait yet.


Possible new name for next World of Warcraft expansion, "Eye of Azshara"November 6th, 2014, 7:06 pm

The next expansion of World of Warcraft could be "Eye of Azshara" after Blizzard, the producers filed a trademark for it according games news sites such as Gamespot. For those who are not in the know, Azshara is both a zone in Kalimdor to the north of Durotar and one of the early playing zones for Goblin.

However it more likely to refer to the Night Elf Queen who ruled Azeroth thousands of years ago when the Burning Legion first attacked. Azshara caused sundering which split the one continent into two. Azshara was turned into a Naga and was never seen of since. The name implies she could be making a return. With Blizzcon, the annual get together of Warcraft fans could reveal more on this. Azshara at the moment can be seen in the dungeon Well of Eternity.

If not an expansion for World of Warcraft, maybe for one of its other games such as Hearthstone.


More on Star Wars Episode VIIJuly 26th, 2014, 13:34p.m.

Another week, more rumours about the new Star Wars film surfaces. The latest piece of news is regarding the plot. The storyline may or may not be correct. The story begins with a severed hand in space, the hand allegedly belongs to Luke Skywalker who hasn`t been seen for thirty years. It falls into the possession of a ex-stormtrooper and his missus. They set off to find the owner of the hand. Along the way, they come across Han Solo and Chewbacca who tells the characters who the hand belongs to. A subplot is the creation of a super powerful new weapon that is more deadly than the Death star which can destroy whole solar systems rather than just planets. 1

If the hand does belong to Luke Skywalker, it can`t be the hand he lost in The Empire Strike Back. Skywalker lost his hand on the gas giant planet of Bespin unless it somehow managed to escape the planets atmosphere and ended up in space which is highly unlikely even for fantasy stories. The storyline has the main characters played by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, both of whom seem a bit too old for those roles described in earlier treatments. The latest recruits to the film, Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke are in my views more likely to play the main roles.

Another rumour has been that Carrie Fisher`s daughter Billie Lourd will play Princess Leia in flashback scenes.2. Billie is said to look like her mum, I`ll let you decide on that one.


If only it was true.July 8th, 2014, 8:24pm

It might look real but it is in fact a fake, someone has made a convincing Star Wars leaked video. It shows all the main Empire vehicles, from the AT-AT Walker to the Death Star. Its short but good.
