Films, Games, Events: What to Get up to This Weekend

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Your weekend starts here, people! So read through this piece as quickly as possible so you can actually do some of the stuff we’ve written about below. Time is not money in this instance, but oh so precious.


It hasn’t received universal praise, but Gerald assures me X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t anywhere near as bad as some of the critics would have you believe.

The latest in the mutant line is finally out after weeks of teasing teasers, and sees a freshly-shorn Charles gather his troops and lock horns with Apocalypse, the supremely powerful original mutant played by a frankly ridiculous-looking Oscar Isaac. He essentially wants to destroy world alongside his four dangerous-but-sexy horsemen.

Any excuse to blue up too.


This Week’s Must Play: Fallout 4 DLC Far Harbor

Fresh out yesterday, Far Harbor boasts the biggest landmass Bethesda’s ever created for a DLC. That, combined with new monsters, crazy weapons and a multitude of possible endings make it a must-play.

For the rest of this week's new UK game releases, head over to our buddies at Kotaku UK.

If I had to pick just one, it'd be the the London Symphony Orchestra’s Open Air Classics concert taking place at Trafalgar Square on Sunday evening. It's a free event, so turn up well before the 6.30pm starting time (and take a brolly with you). If Tchaikovsky ain't your jam, there's loads of 0ther stuff on. Photo London is massive photography fest being held over the weekend at Somerset House, while any history buffs amongst you should check out the Battle of Jutland exhibition at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the freshly reopened Hastings Pier. Oh, and there's a mad-sounding music festival taking place in Bath too.

Whatever trouble you end up getting into, make sure it's worth it.
