Friday Five at Five – News You Might Have Missed


Bringing you the stories you might not have seen this week, we at the Arcade scour the Cortex to find them for you!

5. Zoolander 2 Script Read Happening

Whether you loved is or hated it, Zoolander was one of those movies that exploded. The idea of a sequel had been tossed around not too long ago, but it seems like now they’re inching closer to getting it made. Will Ferrell has stated that there’s supposed to be a script read happening soon.

“We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.”

4. $2bn Minecraft Deal

Minecraft was probably the biggest indie game successes in the history of gaming. With over 54 million copies sold world wide, companies are dying to sink their teeth into the Minecraft craze. Now, Microsoft may have succeeded. Talks are happening between Minecraft creator, Notch, and Microsoft about a $2bn buyout that would let Notch step down from his current position and give Microsoft complete control of Mojang.

3. Bald Xavier for Apocalypse?

Charles Xavier
Releasing in May 2016, people are already pumped for X-Men: Apocalypse. Set for production in 2015, most of the actors are still being kept in the dark about how their characters are going to develop. Even James McAvoy only knows a tiny amount about where Charles Xavier will be going in the latest movie instalment. In a recent appearance on HuffPost Live, McAvoy told them;
“I have no idea what’s going on. I think I’m losing my hair finally… and yeah, that’s kind of all I know.”

4. Super Smash Bros. Roster Leaked

1. Final Mega Evolutions Revealed


From Audino to Sableye, the new Mega Evolutions for Pokémon OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire have been surprising and amazing. Up until this week, we were waiting on the announcement of our three final Mega Evolutions. It’s no surprise that Mega Gallade was announced considering we already have Mega Gardevoir. The two others were quite surprising, but I’m delighted that we’ll be seeing Mega Camerupt and Mega Sharpedo. Our list of Megas for the new games now include:

  • Mega Sceptile
  • Mega Swampert
