Hey, we survived the horror show that was 2020! Congratulations! After a year like that, we also needed a breather which is why we’ve been incommunicado for the last couple of weeks.

Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with this quick rundown of all the news and trailers you may have missed since 18 Dec 2020.
