To kick off what's easily likely to be one of the busiest months of entertainment in 2012, we've got a host of great releases arriving in the next seven days. Merlin, Resident Evil 6, Taken 2, they're all here and accounted for in what promises to be a brilliant week of fun, scares and thrills. Here's the big highlights of what to expect...
PROMETHEUS DVD- Although its actual quality as a film (which we rated at 3/5) is up to debate, Prometheus was most certainly an action-packed prequel to Alien filled with incredible special effects and thought-provoking concepts. It'll be great to see the DVD and Blu-Ray special features including a 'Making Of' documentary that shows us just how Ridley Scott's vision was brought to the big screen. (Monday 1st)
TWO & A HALF MEN- Charlie Sheen may now be totally done and dusted with his past comedy, moving onto the decent series Anger Management, yet Two & A Half Men lives on still! Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher are at the head of the second new season, with Jake still off in the Armed Forces and Alan still shamelessly trying to keep his place in his late brother's house. (Monday 1st)
RESIDENT EVIL 6- We've already had Borderlands 2 kick off the Autumn Of Gaming, and there's still a couple of weeks before the absolute gaming blitz begins, but for now we've got the new horror shooter Resident Evil 6 to entice us. With the President's life in danger from an army of the undead, Chris Redfield must take back his role as an FBI agent once more for the ultimate mission...(Tuesday 2nd)
TAKEN 2- It's Liam Neeson. It's the Taken franchise. What more do you want to know? No, seriously, this time around the plot speaks for itself. If you liked the first film, chances are you'll enjoy this too- and that's all there really is to it. (Thursday 4th)
SKY MOVIES 007 LAUNCHES- Sky Movies Showcase is merging into Sky Movies 007, a brand new channel dedicated to James Bond that shows the twenty-two epic movies that lead up to Skyfall. This should be a re-run season to truly remember! (Friday 5th)
MERLIN: ARTHUR'S BANE PART 1- With the climax of Doctor Who Series Seven Part One, it would be easy to think that BBC1 would let up on their drama outings, yet Merlin's arrival for its fifth season proves otherwise. In the opener Arthur's Bane Part 1, Merlin, Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table must journey into the Frozen Wastelands to hunt down Mordred and discover the beginnings of his plan to destroy Camelot. Has the beginning of the kingdom's end occured...? (Saturday 6th)
AND THERE'S MORE- Snow White & The Huntsman and Modern Family- Season 3 will both land at DVD and Blu-Ray retailers tomorrow; plus the Game Of Thrones Sky1 re-run hits Episode 4, well worth a watch for those (such as myself) who miseed it first time around.
ON THE BLOG- We've got a big WORLD EXCLUSIVE to share with you on Wednesday so be ready for that. You want more? Okay, then- reviews of The Campaign; Merlin: Arthur's Bane Part 1; Two & A Half Men and more are all coming your way very soon, along with all the latest on the Who Christmas Special and a lot of exciting gaming news coverage too!
