Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the Inhumans; a super-powered offshoot of early humanity who first appeared way back in Fantastic Four #45 and who have been confirmed for the Marvel movie treatment in November 2018.

A week after director Colin Trevorrow announced a new, glowy-eyed dinosaur would be featured in the upcoming Jurassic World, the first footage from the trailer posted to Jurassic World‘s Twitter feed yesterday.

movies, he has yet to take a more active role, and we have a whole bunch of movies scheduled between Avengers: Age of Ultron
and its 2018 sequel Avengers: Infinity War, Part I
The newest addition to the “Everything Wrong With…” series by the guys at Cinema Sins takes apart Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past in a 14 minute video that might make Singer want to turn back time for realsies if he happens to see it. Among other things, the video attacks the film’s reliance on overused tropes, poorly explained science that wouldn’t even hold up in the comic books, under using characters like Quicksilver and Storm, and the fact that none of us would kick Mystique out of bed for eating crackers whether she’s all blue and scaly or not.
