Another day, another teaser trailer; and - as predicted - again the fan boys (and girls) have crawled out from their darkened coves and tweeted and generally flooded the internet. Yesterday's release of the second Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer was met by the kind of enthusiastic response you'd expect.
For those of you who are still yet to see the aforementioned teaser trailer, please find below:
However, while so many rejoice - inspired by the return of one of cinema's most successful sagas - I am unsure. There are definitely moments of greatness, but I cannot shake this overwhelming feeling of worry.
But why? Why am I so bitter and twisted towards a release that, really, I should be wetter than an otter's pocket for? Well, allow me to explain below...but before I do, bear this in mind: I never grew up as a Star Wars / Star Trek fan boy. »
For such paragons of justice, the Republics both new and old in Star Wars sure are quick to utilize slave labor. As long as it’s under the guise of shiny metal robotics. Think about it. Within the lore of Star Wars, the droids showcase all the signs of sentience. The droid army feels fear upon attack during the Clone Wars, Artoo is the poster child for loyalty, Ig-88 is an extremely competent bounty hunter, the list goes one. Whether programed to feel emotion or not is a moot point when you’ve got a droid in Season 6 of “The Clone Wars” skirting his programming to avoid a mind wipe. To borrow from another universe, Captain Picard of “Star Trek” faced this same issue in “A Measure of Man,” when Data was to be consigned to dismantlement and reproduction. Picard asks, “How will we treat these creations of our genius? »

Now if they could just add Sir Patrick Stewart as Lumiere…

The curtain will rise on Flesh and Bone, Starz’s limited series about the competitive world of professional ballet, on Sunday, Nov. 8, the network announced Thursday.
The drama follows young, talented, self-destructive dancer Claire (played by Sarah Hay, Black Swan) as she navigates “the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world.” Over the course of the eight-hour series, Claire is pushed to her limits by her ballet company’s artistic director (Ben Daniels, House of Cards) and shaken by the arrival of an unwelcome visitor from her past.
Droughtlander is finally over, Outlander faithful, and the long-awaited continuation of Claire and Jamie’s adventures is an intricate depiction of clan politics, familial dynamics and the shift in social mores over the centuries.
Oh, who am I kidding? All anyone’s going to be talking about tomorrow is the spanking. And the sex. But mostly the spanking.
So let’s get to it, aye? Read on for the highlights of “The Reckoning.”
Following on from its announcement last year, it now appears we know how much longer the extended 'Rogue Cut' of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be.
The news came via the British Board of Film Classification which listed the new 'Rogue Cut' release with a running time of 142 minutes and 37 seconds. In comparison, the theatrical cut was 131 minutes and 25 seconds - meaning an additional 11 minutes and 11 seconds.
As previously reported, much of the sequence is an excised subplot involving a jailbreak in the future timeline to save Rogue from a Sentinel compound - a scene offering Patrick Stewart's Professor X and Ian McKellen's Magneto more on screen action.
However there's a complication. Bryan Singer saw that report and says it's not correct. In fact, the new cut is said to be even longer:
For the record the Rogue Cut of #Xmen #Dofp is more than 17 minutes longer than the original cut. »

Despite being a major financial and critical success for the studio, Fox still felt plenty of pressure from fans when it was announced that a major sub-plot involving Rogue would be completely dropped from last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The major sequence of this plot would involve a jailbreak in the future timeline to save Rogue from a Sentinel compound, which would apparently involve more action for Patrick Stewart's Professor X and Ian McKellen's Magneto. However, the announcement that the sequence would be brought back to life for the extended blu-ray release of the film, dubbed the 'Rogue Cut', had many wondering just how much it would add to the movie. Luckily for fans, Empire Online has obtained specific details about the extended release via BBFC, revealing that the Rogue Cut will have a running time of 142 minutes and 37 seconds. This clocks in at 11 minutes and »
X-Men: Days of Future Past already runs at a hefty 131 minutes, and that runtime was trimmed down from an earlier cut that featured an entire subplot. When we spoke to producer and writer Simon Kinberg about the film last April, he noted that about 10 minutes were cut out, and that this subplot heavily featured Rogue (Anna Paquin), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), and Magneto (Ian McKellen). When the Blu-ray of Days of Future Past was released on Blu-ray, Adam interviewed Kinberg, who confirmed that the “Rogue Cut” was on the way because there wasn’t enough time to do it with the release window for the theatrical cut. Empire has now learned that the BBFC (the British equivalent of the MPAA) “has rated the extended edit as a 12 and lists the running time as 142 minutes and 37,” which is 11 minutes and 11 seconds longer than the theatrical version.

This summer fans of Anna Paquin are in for a treat with the release of the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which restores the True Blood star’s action sequence which was cut from last year’s mutant superhero blockbuster, and now it has been revealed that the extended version will include 11 minutes and 11 seconds of additional footage.
The scene in question reportedly sees Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) launching a rescue attempt, breaking Paquin’s Rogue out of a mutant prison camp controlled by the Sentinels. It will extend the film’s run time from 131 minutes and 26 seconds to 142 minutes 27 seconds.
Update: Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to state that the Rogue Cut is actually more than 17 minutes longer than the original cut, “and has a few little changes I made”. I guess we’ll find out for sure when it finally gets an official release date. »

Earlier this year we got a first look at the upcoming Starz comedy Blunt Talk, and now a longer and better look at the show has been released. Blunt Talk comes from Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane and Bored to Death creator Jonathan Ames, and stars Patrick Stewart as Walter Blunt, "a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news." The series will follow "the fallout from Blunt’s well-intentioned, but mostly misguided »

We all know and love Sir Patrick Stewart. Though he may be known best for his work as Jean-Luc Picard on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," and the benevolent Professor Charles Xavier in the “X-Men” films, he also managed to give a riveting turn in last year’s Tribeca favorite “Match,” and we’ll assuredly see a much darker side of the English thesp in “Blue Ruin” helmer Jeremy Saulnier’s neo-Nazi thriller “Green Room” (one can only be left to assume this is the second entry in a bleak, color-coded triptych). But having now seen the trailer for “Blunt Talk,” I can safely say that the general public has never seen Mr. Stewart quite like… well, whatever he’s supposed to be in the trailer for the new half-hour Starz original comedy. “Blunt Talk” is the twisted product of the minds of “Bored to Death” creator Jonathan Ames »

It’s official: Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine is nearly over. After the actor teased over the weekend that he would be putting on the claws one last time, director James Mangold confirmed that the tentatively-titled Wolverine 3 will wrap up Jackman’s tenure as the mutant. While there is still a slim chance that Wolverine could cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse, the 2017 film will the final time we see him in full-action. Jackman has played the role since 2000 and brought the character to new heights of popularity, but we knew this was going to have to end eventually. Remember, this is a mutant who barely ages, whereas Jackman is susceptible to time’s cruel effects like the rest of us. Other than Jackman being joined by his longtime costar Patrick Stewart, the only thing we know about Wolverine 3 is that it will be based off a »
Hugh Jackman has donned the Adamantium steel claws to portray Wolverine in a pair of X-Men film series as well as his own standalone superhero franchise. However, the actor has hinted that, following his starring turn in Wolverine 3, he'll depart the role for good after 17 years and at least eight films. "Wolverine… one last time," Jackman wrote on Instagram beside a photo of his fists with his trademark claws protruding.
In 2014, Jackman admitted that the next standalone Wolverine film would probably end his tenure in the role. "If I did »
Nearly a year ago, we learned that Us TV was giving Patrick Stewart a platform on which to be funny again, via the Seth MacFarlane-produced cable sitcom Blunt Talk. The first full teaser for the show has arrived. The series, which comes from MacFarlane and Bored To Death creator Jonathan Ames, has shot two seasons of ten episodes each for its initial order. Stewart, who is also on board as a producer, is Walter Blunt, a Piers Morgan-alike British blowhard who scores a job on an American cable news network. Intent on delivering his wisdom and guidance on how our colonial cousins should think and live, he’s endlessly besieged by network executives, his dysfunctional staff and various other characters. His one supporter is the alcoholic manservant he had shipped over from the UK.From the looks of this, it’s Stewart giving free reign to his comic side, »
Bryan Singer’s X-men: Apocalypse, is among the many 2016 Superhero tentpole’s to begin principal photography next month. However, it seems that there are still some last minute casting addition’s being finalised before camera’s begin to role.
Last summer’s X-men: Days Of Future Past, was a fantastic way of revitalising the decade-old franchise, by casually rebooting the series to ensure its long-term future. Although the film promised to act as a swansong to the cast of the first trilogy, it seems that we may not have seen the last of the original X-Men just yet. Last month, Patrick Stewart seemingly revealed the great news that Ian McKellen will be making an appearence in X-men: Apocalypse. Now, a new rumour claims that he will also be joined by Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Halle Berry’s Storm.
While a cameo appearence from Jackman will surprise no one, Berry »

The first trailer has arrived online for Blunt Talk, the upcoming live-action comedy series from Starz and executive producer Seth MacFarlane, which sees Patrick Stewart as Walter Blunt, a British newsman looking to make it in the world of American cable news. Check it out below…
Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. Through the platform of his nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles.
Blunt Talk is set to premiere in the summer, »

Borrowing from MacFarlane’s specific style, with hints of Extras and Gervais-esque madness, Stewart plays Walter Blunt, a British newscaster who moves to Los Angeles with his alcoholic manservant, who I think is played by the brilliantly versatile Adrian Scarborough, plus he’s got a bit of baggage with several failed marriages and he’s off to host a sanctimonious talk show.
This looks brilliant, Stewart does love his bonkers comedy and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do in his first full-time show since Star Trek: Tng. Blunt Talk is written by HBO’s Bored To Death creator Jonathan Ames, with executive production by MacFarlane and it’s back by Us cable network Starz. »
