about X hours ago from

It's a somewhat busy time for new game releases, and one of those new titles claims top spot in the UK physical sales chart this week. Nintendo's new Switch platformer Yoshi's Crafted World was the best-selling game in the UK for the week ending March 30, according to sales monitor Chart-Track.

Crafted World becomes the first Yoshi game ever to get to No.1 in the UK, though it was a close battle this week--the Switch exclusive beat The Division 2 by just 63 copies, according to GamesIndustry.biz. Below those two games is last week's No.1, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which falls two places to No.3.

The other new entries are Assassin's Creed III: Remastered, which debuts at No.9, Generation Zero at No.19, Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season at No.23, and Outward at No.24.

The video showcases a number of unique and beautiful environments, as well as a series of weapons and numerous characters. Take a look for yourself in the video below from YouTube channel MrRedRivers.

The Outer Worlds is a sci-fi RPG made by Obsidian, the developers of Knights of the Old Republic II, Fallout: New Vegas, and South Park: The Stick of Truth.

For Honor Limited-Time Event Brings Rabbids Into The Mix

Ubisoft has announced a wild and wacky limited-time event for its swordfighting game For Honor.

Now until April 1 at 9 PM PT / midnight ET, players can face off against a new type of enemy: Rabbids. The cute and loveable creatures are in the game now as part of a 24-hour limited-time event. Everyone who participates gets a melee pack, on top of the reward of taking part in such a weird activity. This is no April Fool's joke, either, as you can see plenty of people fighting against Rabbids in YouTube videos. And here is a screenshot that Ubisoft provided:

The new Rabbids-themed event is part of For Honor's Year 3 content updates; Year 3 is known as the Year of the Harbinger. One of its most notable additions was a new fighter, The Black Prior. Looking ahead, Ubisoft said it will release even more Year 3 content, which includes seasonal events.

Ubisoft has announced a wild and wacky limited-time event for its swordfighting game For Honor, timed to coincide with April Fools' day, which has seen a variety of fake announcements--along with a few that do genuinely exist.

For Honor is one of the latter examples: From now until April 1 at 9 PM PT / midnight ET, players can face off against a new type of enemy: Rabbids.

Matthew McConaughey's New Stoner Comedy Has Career-Worst Wide Opening For The Actor

about X hours ago from

Matthew McConaughey is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but not everything he touches turns to gold. The actor's newest film, The Beach Bum, opened this weekend--and it seems like it may be a flop. The stoner comedy featuring McConaughey in the lead role made $1.8 million at 1,100 theatres across the United States and Canada.

That works out to an average of $1,636 per theatre, according to Entertainment Weekly. It's a career-worst opening for McConaughey when you look at wide releases, or films that opened at more than 1,000 screens. His previous low wide release was 2017's Gold, which made made $3.4 million from 2,166 screens, according to The Wrap.

The Beach Bum was directed by Harmony Korine, who previously directed the more successful 2012 film Spring Breakers. The Beach Bum also features Snoop Dogg, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Martin Lawrence, and Isla Fisher.

Disney's New Dumbo Movie Has Weak Opening; Full Top 10 Box Office Report Revealed

about X hours ago from

Disney's latest live-action adaptation of an an animated classic didn't have the strong start that the company might have wanted. The movie opened to a huge figure this weekend, taking in an estimated $45 million in the US and Canada this weekend to stand easily at No. 1, but it didn't make as much money as people expected it to.

EW reports that it was projected to bank between $50 million and $58 million for its domestic opening-weekend. At $45 million, it's substantially below other recent live-action Disney movies such as Beauty and the Beast ($174.8 million), The Jungle Book ($103.3 million), and Cinderella ($67.9 million). Dumbo, however, is not nearly as big or recognisable a franchise as Disney's other marquee series, so it was never likely to make as much as those films.

Dumbo was directed by Hollywood legend Tim Burton, and it cost around $170 million to make. It features a star-studded cast with the likes of Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and Colin Farrell, who act alongside the big-eared baby elephant Dumbo.
