Ever since The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, I’ve been awestruck by Asa Butterfield’s talent. He was one of the finalists to be Spider-Man in the MCU, and I was rooting for him, though Tom Holland has that so owned now, I think it was for the best. Through Hugo and Ender’s Game, Butterfield has continued to blow me away, and I’m hoping as he transitions into adulthood he’s the rare star that manages to continue to find good roles and evolve as an actor. Journey’s End is a World War I epic based on the novel by R.C. Sherriff. It’s scheduled to hit theaters February 2, 2018.
Call of Duty continues to be the king of shooter franchises, but, honestly, I don’t hear many people that excited about it anymore. I think the decision they’ve made to keep going into the future is a misstep, because the best installments of these have been built on history, going back to when Medal of Honor started this trend. Battlefield is taking a step back in history, exploring the little-explored World War I era for this year’s installment and it looks pretty stellar. It’s never about the campaign, which is more interesting to me, but the multiplayer, in which I have little interest, but I know that’s me in the minority. Battlefield 1 releases for Xbox One and Playstation 4 on October 21, 2016. Achievement List below courtesy of the Web’s best site for cheevo needs: xboxachievements.com.

*Official Synopsis below
It is 1914. As the Great War looms, the vast Ottoman Empire is crumbling. Constantinople (Istanbul), its once vibrant, multicultural capital is about to be consumed by chaos.
Michael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac), arrives in the cosmopolitan hub as a medical student determined to bring modern medicine back to Siroun, his ancestral village in Southern Turkey where Turkish Muslims and Armenian Christians have lived side by side for centuries.
Photo-journalist Chris Myers (Christian Bale), has come here only partly to cover geo-politics. He is mesmerized by his love for Ana (Charlotte le Bon), an Armenian artist he has accompanied from Paris after the sudden death of her father.
When Michael meets Ana, their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between the two men even as Michael hangs on to a promise from his past. After the Turks join the war on the German side, the Empire turns violently against its own ethnic minorities. Despite their conflicts, everyone must find a way to survive — even as monumental events envelop their lives.
