E3 2017: The Black Death Goes Supernatural in Gruesome A Plague Tale: Innocence Trailer

Published

on

If you have an aversion to rats, I strongly suggest you skip the trailer for Focus Home Interactive’s A Plague Tale: Innocence, because it’s absolutely filled with the hungry little rodents.

The very gruesome trailer lasts for just under a minute, and yet it still looks like it could be one of the most disturbing things shown at this year’s E3. The game’s set in 1349 France during the height of the Black Plague, and there’ll also be some supernatural elements at play. You control two young orphans trying to escape from the monstrous rats, something which is easier said than done as we see from the trailer that the rodents are capable of tearing a knight to pieces in a matter of seconds.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is being developed by Asobo Studio, who are currently best known for video game adaptations of Pixar movies including Toy Story 3, Ratatouille, Up and WALL-E. They’re clearly not in Pixar territory anymore, so their time of innocence has come to an end.

A Plague Tale: Innocence’s E3 teaser unveils a supernatural swarm of rats

Developed by Asobo Studio and featured on the Focus home Interactive stand (West Hall # 4512), A Plague Tale: Innocence is unveiled today for the very first time in its E3 teaser.

1349. The plague ravages the Kingdom of France. Amicia and her younger brother Hugo are pursued by the Inquisition through villages devastated by the disease. On their way, they will have to join forces with other orphans and evade swarms of rats using fire and light. Aided only by the link that binds their fates together, the children will face the darkest days of history in their struggle to survive. The adventure begins on consoles and PC… and the time of innocence ends.

A Plague Tale: Innocence will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
