LEGO Dimensions Discontinued

It goes without saying that /Film is not a video game site. But whenever there’s news regarding video games with ties to our favorite movies and TV shows, we think it’s worth reporting. That’s why we’re here with a disappointing update from The LEGO Group regarding their building block multiverse in the video game LEGO Dimensions.

After creating a video game that combined the worlds of Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic World, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, The Simpsons, Back to the Future, Knight Rider and many more, The LEGO Group, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have decided not to create anymore new expansion packs for the video game. Find out more below. Read More »

Rocko's Modern Life - Comic-Con TV Trailers

We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded. But we still wanted to highlight some of the big shows with new footage to show off for fans.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.
