Death, destruction, hot mutant-on-mutant action: the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse promises that Marvel's most famous Homo superior superheroes will be in for some blockbuster-sized battles. Expanding on the footage that we saw last December, this new glimpse at Bryan Singer's fifth X-Men film showcases a much larger scale than the previous teasers.
As Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), history's first mutant, wakes from his sleep and reigns havoc upon the earth, resident franchise bad guys Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the shape-shfting Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) eventually joins forces their do-gooding counterparts to defeat a common enemy. »
If you want to see what the quintessential Tim Burton movie looks like, you're in luck because his latest now has a trailer and it's gloriously Burton-esque. It's as if Ransom Riggs wrote the Ya fantasy book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children just so it'd be made into a movie by the man behind the movies Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish and the drawings of strange children in his own book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories. It's also sort of what a Tim Burton-directed X-Men movie might look like. Or at least a New Mutants movie. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children stars Eva Green as a sort of Professor Xavier for orphans with strange powers or qualities. There's an...

Deadpool continues to rack up the dollars, so Deadpool continues to silently change the landscape of 20th Century Fox as Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice enters the final marketing push in the foreground.
First, we were supposed to get two more X-Movies this year, at least according to the previous release schedule we were working off. X-Men: Apocalypse will still drop at the end of May (as Captain America: Civil War wears off from earlier in the month), but October 7, 2016 is no longer the release date for Gambit, starring Channing Tatum. It appears that movie has been pulled from the schedule entirely.
The interesting additions were an untitled Fox/X-Men movie a year later on October 6th, 2017 and a second untitled Fox/X-Men movie for January 12th, 2018. The things we can plug in those release dates that we »
For the last week, Star Wars fans who follow Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) on Twitter have been enjoying a special treat. On February 17, the actor cryptically declared on social media that a big announcement would be coming soon from him. To keep But he didn’t say when. That would normally be the end of things, with fans and journalists periodically checking back to see if the news had dropped. But then Mayhew did something fun…he started posting photos of his original Star Wars script every day and promised to keep it up until the unknown day of the announcement. So far we’re eight days in. No announcement yet, but so far the posted script pages have been fascinating. From dialogue changes to more background information to characters that never saw the light of day, it’s an interesting trip down memory lane. Day One: Starting today I'll post »

With the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival wrapping up this week, we’ve highlighted our five favorite films from the slate. Make sure to stay tuned in the coming months as we learn about distribution news for the titles. Check out our favorites below, followed by our complete coverage, and one can see the winners here.
Creepy (Kiyoshi Kurosawa)
One has to appreciate Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s winking self-awareness in calling his new feature Creepy. It’s as if the Coen brothers released a film entitled Snarky, or Eli Roth named his next stomach-churner Gory. Kurosawa, who’s still best known for Cure (1997) and Pulse (2001), two rare outstanding examples of the highly variable J-Horror genre, instills a sense of creepiness into virtually anything he does, regardless of subject matter. His latest, which sees him return to the realm of horror after excursions into more arthouse territory, certainly lives up to its name »

Some might say that WWE Fast Lane is just a filler show while we wait for WrestleMania, but that can’t be the case can it? I mean, it’s got Brock Lesnar on the show and… well that’s about it. With so many injuries to key players and some of the company’s top stars working part-time, the roster depth is pretty thin for WWE at the moment. Which is how we’ve ended up with a card where only one match actually matters going into WrestleMania. That’s not to say it won’t be good of course, but it will certainly be lacking in drama.
Let’s see what we’ve got in store… »
