The final trailer for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse hit the Internet toady and confirms a long rumored cameo. If you want to stay completely in the dark until you see [REDACTED] on the big screen, you might want to skip this final trailer, as awesome as it is. The whole gang is here, making the transition from student to full-fledged X-Men, with more than a few other well-known mutants thrown in. Jennifer Lawrence‘s Mystique leads the fledgling X-Men against Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and his Four Horsemen, Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Archangel (Ben Hardy), and Psylocke (Olivia Munn). There’s also a first look at the Blob which was recently posted by Singer on Instagram. (He’s not the special cameo we’re not talking about.) (more…)
A new viral video just appeared on our radar, teasing us fans. Made to appear as a 80’s TV special it croons at us with the golden voice of George Takei. Referencing the film Days of Future Past, it brings fans a taste of what is to come. The video starts off with a statement of mutants appearing ten years ago. Then George asks the question. (more…)
It was this time last year that we got our first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That teaser was a minute-and-a-half long and featured only seven shots, but there was also a mysterious voiceover that we’ve since learned was spoken by Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” Now, almost exactly one year later, we get an answer as to who Snoke was talking to. It seems like we’re getting new footage by the day in 30-second or one minute increments, but for the first time, it seems like the new normal of the Dark Side is getting the spotlight in a TV ad.

That is, he actually kinda sorta looks like he is suppose to look.
When the internet got it’s first look at Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse in the villains eponymous X-Men movie, well let’s say it was less than kind. Yes, we all know he bore an uncanny resemblance to a certain oozy purple Power Ranger villain and yes it was kind of rough seeing the big budget Hollywood blockbuster costume pale in comparison to some great, source clinging cosplay. Well, maybe that’s not his final form?
XMenNewz has posted some photos that, if legit, might make even the most cynical X-Fan rest a little easier about En Sabah Nur’s big screen debut. It also might spoil parts of the movie so the pic and a super special surprise bonus are up after the jump. (more…)
Sure, August isn’t even half over yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to the fall. Or December for that matter. Of course, it’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens that we all want to hear about, see footage from, and digest every morsel about, and as luck would have it, Entertainment Weekly‘s Fall Movie Preview arrives this week to fill that gaping void in new Star Wars news that just wasn’t filled by that two seconds of the new footage from the international trailer. Are we spoiled? Absolutely. Do we want more? You’re gosh darn right we do! So get ready for some cool new photos from the biggest film yet to be released in 2015. (more…)

He helped redefine the zombie genre with 28 Days Later, and he helped wash the bad taste of the Sylvester Stallone-starring Judge Dredd out of our mouths with 2012’s Dredd, and now Alex Garland wants us to re-think artificial intelligence. It’s a tough topic to break despite the efforts of two recent high-profile, and high-budget, misfires (Transcendence and Chappie), but according to the early reviews from this year’s South By Southwest, Garland stands a better than average chance of changing that with his new film Ex Machina. In the fascinating and haunting new trailer, we get a new look at what Garland has in store with the movie. Does it make you even more anxious to see it? Let’s find out. (more…)
Things are happening in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse production. We recently found out that Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen won’t be back, and now word around the Internet is that Oscar Isaac (Robin Hood, The Bourne Legacy), who’ll be playing En Sabah Nur, or Apocalypse as X-Men comics fan know him, is gearing up for some costume fittings and special effects pre-production.

People have been trying to guess what’s going on with Star War: The Force Awakens ever since Disney first announced that they were making it. From plotlines to character appearances to whether Mickey Mouse will be making a guest showing, rumors and speculations abound. Now one Star Wars actor, Oscar Isaac, is stepping up and setting the record straight by telling fans straight out that they don’t know what they’re talking about. Read on to hear what Isaac had to say. (more…)
Perhaps the most controversial of George Lucas‘ many controversial maneuvers in regards to the Star Wars franchise is his constant re-tooling of the first three Star Wars movie. So far as Lucas is concerned, each new platform or anniversary for the trilogy’s release is a new opportunity to change something in them a little more. Offending Star Wars fans, film preservationists, and people who think the new edits and effects add nothing substantive to the movies, there’s been a constant discussion about whether or not Lucas should restore the original versions of the films, but now one of those voices is coming from the inside. One of the cast members of Star Wars Episode VII is questioning the sense of constantly re-editing the films, not in a full-throated People Vs. George Lucas kind of way, but its another scratching nag in the volume of criticism against Lucas. (more…)
