'Batman: Arkham Knight' Will Serve As The Series' Next Gen Conclusion


Batman XBOX Warner Brothers

While hysteria surrounding Microsoft and Sony’s next generation of consoles has certainly been palpable, it’s been dampened somewhat by the lack of stellar titles available on the XBOX ONE and PS4. Titanfall, Watchdogs and The Witcher 3 are all nice promises to look forward to, but Dead Rising 3, Knack and Killzone 4 weren’t exactly titles worthy of ushering in the latest specification of hardware.

Batman: Arkham OriginsBatman fights the bad guys in Arkham Origins

But it was only a matter of time before the big, next-gen only titles were going to be announced, and the fourth instalment of the Arkham series is certainly that: a triple A, blockbuster title for the new generation of consoles. “Invest in Gotham,” says Bruce Wayne’s dead father in the trailer’s voiceover. “Treat its people like family. Watch over them. Use this money to safeguard them from forces beyond their control.”

Warner Brothers

The indie title has been nothing short of a phenomenon, racking up millions of sales and dominating gaming news over the past 5 years.

China Finally Pays Hollywood Studios For 'Life Of Pi' And Others


Ang Lee Warner Brothers

The Chinese government has paid six major Hollywood studios in full, following a lengthy dispute over box-office payments, the Motion Picture Association of America announced on Tuesday, reports the Wall Street Journal.

"We are pleased to hear that the Chinese government has addressed the matter and all money due will be paid in full. It is our understanding that the payment process has recommenced," said Chris Dodd, head of the MPAA.

The dispute concerns a 2 per cent luxury tax that China wanted to impose on box-office receipts. According to The Wrap, that tax was not part of the new more Hollywood-friendly trade agreement the sides had hammered out last year and the major studios saw it as a violation of the pact.

'Pacific Rim' Dubbed One Of The Most Memorable Movies In Years


Guillermo Del Toro Idris Elba Warner Brothers

Guillermo Del Toro's big-budget sci-fi action movie Pacific Rim should have been horrible. I mean, it really should have been horrible. It costs hundreds of millions to make, it's about monstrous creatures called Kaiju rising from the sea and beginning a war with humanity and, well, it's called Pacific Rim - which just sounds weird.

The problem is, it's not that horrible, apparently. Critics have been weighing in on del Toro's movie for the past couple of days and the consensus appears to be that the Mexican filmmaker has done a pretty good job. "Pacific Rim is just the kind of big-ticket sci-fi adventure you'd want del Toro to make -- provided you'd want him to make one at all," said Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice. Matthew Toomey of ABC Radio Brisbane was the most effusive in his praise for the all-action film, he said: "I'd strongly argue that Pacific Rim is one of the more memorable, distinctive action releases in recent years."

Ian Nathan of Empire magazine continued the plaudits, "Del Toro is giving scope to a boyhood lust for mayhem, the multi-million-dollar equivalent of kicking over sandcastles and torturing insects. There is something infectiously juvenile in that. Catch his Drift and you'll have a brawl," he said.

Happy Birthday! Here's Your Lawsuit! Warner Brothers Facing Legal Action Over Famous Song


Warner Brothers

Good Morning to You is filming a documentary about the origins of the song - the documentary (originally enough) shares the same name. The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan on the grounds the copyright is invalid thus should be declared void and refunds issued to all those who paid royalties. Considering Warner Brothers collects around $2 million of royalties from the use of the song every year this will not be a small sum. Those who neglect to pay the $1500 licencing fee face a fine of $150,000 for breaching Warner Brother's copyright.

The song originates from Kentucky where it was created by the Hill Sisters and published in 1893. It was only in 1935 that the lyrics and score were copyrighted. They have belonged and will continue (until 2030) to belong to Warner Brothers. This is the issue underpinning the whole case. This version of the song is copyrighted by Warner yet others may have pre-existed this score allowing Good Morning to You (and others) to use a previously un-copyrighted version. 

Owing to the obscure origins of the song, Good Morning to You have been forced to delve into copyrighting archives around the US including those of an Indiana school which attempted to have the song copyrighted in 1912.
