A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood review: “Tom Hanks stars as Mr Rogers in this warm, cosy hug of a film” – TIFF 2019

The Tom Hanks tearjerker has premiered at Toronto International Film Festival – here's Total Film's review...For those who haven’t managed to catch the exemplary doc Won’t You Be Ny Neighbor? or didn’t grow up Stateside with his lilting, gentle advice, Mr Rogers may be at best a mystery and at worse, an irrelevance. A born cynic who prefers to write war reportage rather than profiles, he hardly seems the best hack to send to interview the famously joyous and genial Mr Rogers (Tom Hanks, wonderfu

Minecraft Earth, the groundbreaking future of the biggest game in the world, stars in the new issue of Edge magazine

In the five years since Microsoft acquired Minecraft for an industry-shaking $2.5 billion, the company has given little away about its vision for the future of the biggest game on the planet. Under Microsoft's stewardship, Mojang has improved the cadence of game updates, and done its bit to break down industry walls through cross-platform play. It does for Mojang's game what Pokemon Go did for Game Freak's – bringing it to life, wherever you are in the world, through augmented reality. It's also

The Jeremy Renner app was too good for this world

On Sept. 4, two-time Academy Award nominee, aspiring rock musician, and Hawkeye Jeremy Renner announced that Jeremy Renner — his application — would be closing down. Those of us on the Jeremy Renner app were treated with a push notification that said “App coming down very soon...” which revealed the final post on the app. In a Papyrus-esque font (clarified by Polygon front page editor Samit Sarkar to be Bradley Hand ITC, not Papyrus), Jeremy Renner posted on Jeremy Renner that Jeremy Renner woul

The best new shows you’ll only find on streaming

Disney Plus and Hulu meanwhile indulge some disillusioned MillenZials with a reimagining of High School Musical and a Tumblr aesthetic worthy rendition of Looking for Alaska. Taking place in the “real life” high school where High School Musical was filmed, the show follows the “real” students of East High as they put on a production of High School Musical. Cue the high school drama, cue the high school romances, cue the high school theatrics. In a cutthroat Santa Barbara high school, Payton Hoba

Humankind rewrites the rules of Civilization

Amplitude has nothing but respect for Sid Meier’s masterpiece—a key inspiration for Humankind. It’s with the conclusion of the Bronze Age, though, that Humankind really makes its multicultural philosophy known. This is the next way in which Humankind departs from the assumptions Civilization is based on: history, as Amplitude tells it, cannot be won. (Image credit: Sega)To help understand, you might look to the Khmers, one of the 60 cultures Humankind represents in its roster. It’s these kind of

The best new movies of summer 2019, from blockbusters to indies

Speaking of Endgame, the biggest movie of all time (without inflation) is not, by our May-through-August standards, a summer movie. Disney thought it had it all, but Endgame won’t qualify for our best of summer list, so in the end, the movie was a failure. With the blockbuster to end all blockbusters out of the way, the season’s movies, big and small, are finally unobscured. Every shot of the movie oozes with the loveable pocket monsters, showing off a world where they seamlessly live alongside
