Kevin Costner has staged a comeback in recent years, starting with his turn as Superman's adoptive father Jonathan Kent in Man of Steel. He teams up again with Diane Lane in the thriller Let Him Go as a retired sheriff out to rescue his grandson from a violent family. He's the family patriarch in the hit series Yellowstone, and in the film that launched him into superstardom, The Untouchables, he portrays Eliot Ness—the man who took down legendary mafia crime boss Al Capone (Ness also happens to be a dad of young children). I guess you could say that Costner is a father figure for the ages!
The Zelda video games have been around for 30 years, but Nintendo really broke the mold with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, creating an Open World experience that lets the player determine how and when Link confronts the puzzles and challenges of his quest. And its graphics are astounding - it looks more like a playable cartoon than a video game. Critically acclaimed and super fun!
