Fandango adds Android Pay support, all purchases are $3 off this month when you use it

The Fandango app for Android isn't very good. It's just a web wrapper for the most part, and half the time when I try to buy tickets, the purchase times out and I have to try again. But now, there's one major reason to use it over the mobile site - Android Pay.

[Deal Alert] Ip Man trilogy on sale for just $3 at Google Play ($24 off)

Have you seen Star Wars: Rogue One? Did you like the character Chirrut Imwe, the blind, force-influenced character who beat the crap out of storm troopers with nothing more than a stick and snarky one-liners? You did, great! Then you might just like this deal. You see, the actor who plays the role of Chirrut is Donnie Yen, a martial arts master and the star of the much acclaimed Ip Man trilogy. Today you can buy that whole trilogy for just $3 at Google Play, a huge savings off the normal price of $27 that you'd pay if you bought each movie individually (ignore that $39.97 nonsense, they are priced at $7, $7, and $13 if you buy them separately).

Rovio Really Wants You To Remember That There's An Angry Birds Movie Coming, Soft-Launches Angry Birds Action! To Prove It

Despite the fact that excitement for endless Angry Birds iterations and spin-offs more or less died over a year ago, the Angry Birds movie is scheduled to hit theaters next month. (Apparently creating a 90-minute CG movie, complete with Hollywood talent, marketing, and distribution, takes a lot longer than making a 2D physics game.) Developer Rovio is pumping up the promotion machine starting with Angry Birds Action!, a 2.5D twist on the classic slingshot formula. At the moment it's soft-launched in New Zealand, but the game should be heading to other territories well before the May movie release.

Om Nom, The Star Of ZeptoLab's Cut The Rope Series, Will Get Its Own Animated Movie In 2016

Did you think the Angry Birds movie was an insane bit of zealous over-licensing at the peak of a mobile gaming fad? You ain't seen nothing yet. According to IGN, Cut The Rope developer ZeptoLab has partnered with production company Blockade Entertainment to create a computer animated movie based on the game's adorable monster protagonist Om Nom. Om Nom: The Movie is currently scheduled to release in 2016, notably the same year that the Angry Birds movie will hit theaters.

The official synopsis for the movie makes surprisingly little mention of ropes or candy, and sounds like an E.T. rip-off that came 30 years too late:

Om Nom tells the story of 13-year old Evan, a boy whose impulsiveness leads him to open a secret package containing a living scientific experiment - with mischievous intentions!

Nexus 5 Owners, Check Your Google Play Movies & TV App: You Might Have A Free Copy Of 'Gravity' Waiting For You

If you use a Nexus 5, or even if you can just get your hands on one long enough to add your Google account, you might want to investigate the Google Play Movies & TV app. According to posters at Slickdeals and our own devices, owners of the N5 are being treated to a free digital copy of the 2013 astronaut thriller Gravity. Just open the app and tap "add to library," and it's yours to keep and play back on any Android device or browser. It's even being given away in HD.

This does seem oddly limited to the Nexus 5 - we've tried it on other devices, including the OnePlus One, the Nexus 7 2013 running the Android L preview, the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition, and the DROID MAXX, and all of them seem to be offering Shaun The Sheep: The Big Chase instead.

[New Game] Warner Bros. Releases Official '300: Rise Of An Empire - Seize Your Glory' Action Game

300: Rise of an Empire - Seize Your Glory confuses what goes in a name and what should be a tagline. Shortening this down to 300: Rise of an Empire, the name of the upcoming film it's based on, would make perfect sense, but no. Instead, we get this.

[New Game] Glu Releases RoboCop Into The Play Store, Because A Struggling Cop Has To Push His New Movie Somehow

We are the Android Police, so it should come as no surprise that we have a soft spot for RoboCop. We understand what it's like to do the cop thing all while people fail to see you as anything other than a robot. We also get that times are tough right now, and with shrinking pensions and rising healthcare costs, this formerly dead guy crammed full of electronics has to try to make a living any way he can, even if it's by starring in another movie and getting in bed with Glu in order to market it. So here's RoboCop, the obligatory movie tie-in game designed to pump you up for next month's big release.

[New Game] Gameloft Releases Thor: The Dark World, A Movie Tie-In With An Uncanny Resemblance To Dungeon Hunter

We have just a week to go before the sequel to 2011's Thor hits theaters, which makes this the perfect time to drop a movie tie-in game that cashes in on the hype. Gameloft's Thor: The Dark World places the god of thunder in a top-down dungeon crawler that looks not unlike the company's own Dungeon Hunter series, minus the multiplayer aspect. If you have an engine that works, why not use it, right?

Thor: The Dark World pits the heroes of Asgard against the dark forces, so our red caped protagonist won't have to charged into battle alone.

[New Game] Warner Bros. Releases GRAVITY: DON'T LET GO For Android, Lets Gamers Play Out The Movie Trailer Experience

Game developers have launched players into the abyss of space since they first learned how to manipulate pixels, but very few titles offer us the chance to simulate life as a modern day astronaut. Sure, GRAVITY: DON'T LET GO is purely intended to draw interest in the upcoming film Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, but it still offers one of the relatively few chances to float around present day spacecraft that gamers have.

If you haven't already seen the trailer for Gravity, here's the gist - things go horribly wrong. Satellite debris crashes into a space shuttle, sending an astronaut hurtling through space desperately trying to free herself from the damaged mechanical arm she's attached to.
