In-demand programming like 'Game of Thrones' will be available through subscription to Dish customers for the first time.
Media empire Time Warner Inc. and satellite TV network provider Dish Network Corp. have agreed a new distribution deal which will apparently include making HBO available through Dish’s new online TV streaming offering.

Serkis steps into the fray for Warner Brothers' version of Rudyard Kipling's iconic story
Andy Serkis, who hit worldwide notoriety for portraying the character of Gollum in The Lord of The Rings films, is to direct ‘The Jungle Book’ for Warner Bros., who will be under extra pressure to deliver a faithful version of the iconic tale with Disney also working on a live-action adaptation, directed by Jon Favreau.
Andy Serkis is set to direct 'The Jungle Book'
Serkis is thought to be the final turn in what has been a winding road towards finding a director. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) left the project due to scheduling conflicts while Ron Howard was briefly in talks to take the helm – they proved to be fruitless. Serkis will also produce the movie with ‘Harry Potter’ writer Steve Kloves and Jonathan Cavendish, who is Serkis’ partner at The Imaginarium - his Fox-based production company.

Watch the explosive 'Batman: Arkham Knight' trailer below.
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 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.”

The rumors were true...
Despite being released back in 2009 in beta, Minecraft is one of the most widely played games today. The indie title has been nothing short of a phenomenon, racking up millions of sales and dominating gaming news over the past 5 years. And these well-documented success stories (established markets) don’t avoid Hollywood for long – a Minecraft movie is in production.
Warner Bros. – who recently enjoyed critical and fiscal success with The Lego Movie – have acquired the rights from Mojang, the Swedish company behind the game, whose name means ‘Gadget’ in English. Minecraft’s creator, Notch, revealed the news on Twitter. "Someone is trying leak the fact that we're working with Warner Brothers on a potential Minecraft Movie," said Markus Persson. "I wanted to be the leak!"

Of course, a second film was always on the way
The Lego Movie went down so well with the critics and fans alike, Warner Bros. have set a release date for its sequel while the first one is still in cinemas. May 26, 2017 is the magic day the studio confirmed on Friday.
The Lego movie has been a smash hit
Will Ferrell, Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks all enjoyed voice roles in The Lego Movie, which opened with nearly $70m at the domestic box office. It then went on to gross more than $200m in the global market in what was a remarkable success story. It didn’t just stun on a fiscal level, though. The critics were equally impressed, lauding the film’s original style and refreshing dynamic. It soon accumulated a very respectable 96% on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.

Chris Dodd confirmed that China has now paid the money owed in full.
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.

Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim may have been worth the wait.
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.
