Cartoon Network will air Tenkai Knights, a new anime tied to a Spin Master Entertaiment toy line, beginning later this year, according to Today Licensing Worldwide. Spin Master is hoping for success similar to its last anime tie-in, Bakugan Battle Brawlers, a collectible game which was a massive hit in the toy aisle, due largely to its exposure on Cartoon Network. Spin Master is collaborating with Viz Media co-parent Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions (ShoPro) on the development of the property.
The series will tell the story of ordinary people changed to heroes as they go through an inter-dimensional portal.
A full 52 episodes is in production, along with Webisodes, an interactive Website, and the Spin Master toy line.

May has five home entertainment release days instead of four, so there aren’t very many new offerings this week, but there are some very interesting titles including a bleak and gritty crime film ( Triple 9 ) and an almost equally interesting crime caper TV mini-series ( The Last Panthers , which has a theme song by David Bowie), plus an inspiring Jesse Owens biopic, and the campy box office failures Gods of Egypt and Pride and Prejudice & Zombies .
'Alice Through the Looking Glass' in Real Trouble, 'Civil War' Tops 'Deadpool'

As expected this weekend’s two big new releases topped the box office charts, but X-Men: Apocalypse’s debut was 30% below that of the previous film in the franchise ( Days of Future Past ), and James Bobin’s Alice Through the Looking Glass opened 70% below Tim Burton’s 2010 Alice in Wonderland.
