After the success of The LEGO Movie, Hasbro hopes to recreate some of that magic by partnering with 20th Century Fox to develop a live-action film based on their Play-Doh toy brand.
According to Deadline, the studio is negotiating with Paul Feig, who is currently working on the coming Ghostbusters reboot, to direct. Feig helped develop a take for the film, and then turned to Jason Micallef (Butter) to produce the script.
Unlike the animated LEGO feature, which is already poised to to spawn multiple sequels and spin-offs, the Play-Doh film will reportedly be live-action.
Apple previously said that pre-orders for the Watch will kick off on April 10. Today, the company has confirmed that it will start taking pre-orders for the wrist-worn device right after midnight on the West Coast at 12:01am Pacific Time on Friday, April 10, 2015.
Earlier this morning, we told you about a unique certificate of authenticity that appears when first pairing your Watch to your iPhone in iOS 8.2’s stock Apple Watch companion app and now we have our first look at the full pairing animations for the different Watch models.
While Apple did confirm during its second Apple Watch media event on March 9, 2015 that it will be offering its AppleCare+ extended coverage plan for the wearable device, it did not present pricing for the extended support plans tailored specifically to the Watch.

“Xenoblade Chronicles is the best Japanese RPG of this generation. The fact that it looks like it’s from the last generation is its only drawback, but its technical limitations are offset by imaginative artistic direction, innovative and compelling combat, and thoughtful design. It’s a throwback to the glory days of the genre, proof that there are always new ways to tell a story. If you’ve ever felt neglected by the lack of in-depth gaming epics on the Wii, you owe it to yourself to buy this.”
Prior to Game of Thrones, medieval action-adventure movies didn’t get much play on the big screen, but lately it seems like every studio wants a piece of the dark fantasy pie. And while director Kazuaki Kiriya’s Last Knights isn’t exactly fantasy, it’s packed with all the typical genre conventions: knights, kings, castles, betrayal and bloodshed. However, those things don’t necessarily make a good movie, as we’ve seen from other fantasy pics like Seventh Son and 47 Ronin. Unfortunately, Last Knights doesn’t quite rise to the challenge, despite good leads in Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman.
The story follows Raiden (Owen), a warrior “of peasant stock” and loyal servant to his master, Bartok (Freeman). But when Bartok refuses to kowtow to a neighboring realm, the realm’s tyrannical authority figure, Gezza Mott (Aksel Hennie), convinces the unnamed country’s emperor (Payman Maadi) to sentence Bartok to death. As a result, Bartok’s realm is quickly disbanded, leaving his people homeless and without purpose. In retaliation, Raiden and his fellow knights band together one last time to seek revenge against Mott and his army, in hopes that it might sway the emperor.
