X-Men: Dark Phoenix to Brutally Kill Off a Major Character?

X-Men: Dark Phoenix to Brutally Kill Off a Major Character?
X-Men: Dark Phoenix may be killing off a major character from the franchise in a pretty brutal way. The Dark Phoenix Saga is not only one of the most beloved X-Men storylines, but it's one of the most iconic Marvel Comics stories ever. Period. And adapting it for the big screen was completely botched in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. But next year's X-Men: Dark Phoenix is going to take another crack at it and, at the very least, it sounds like the movie won't pull any punches.

Warning: possible spoilers ahead for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. A new report claims that long-time franchise producer and writer Simon Kinberg, who makes his directorial debut with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, is going to show the full range of Jean Grey's Phoenix powers in the movie. In order to do so, he's going to have her kill off one of the main character's that's

Will X-Men: Dark Phoenix Kill Off One Of These Major Characters?

The latest mainline film in the X-Men franchise, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, has now wrapped. Despite principal production having finished though, we still know surprisingly little about the movie. That being said, the title tells us quite a bit to start with, as Dark Phoenix will tackle the iconic comic book storyline of Jean Grey’s descent into darkness, and will hopefully prove to be a much more successful attempt than X-Men: The Last Stand.

Now, thanks to a new report from That Hashtag Show, we might just know the exact incident that causes Sophie Turner’s telepathic mutant to turn to the dark side. Ths’ sources allege that Dark Phoenix will feature a sequence where Jean attempts to unleash her powers but fails to control them – killing a long-running character in the process. Though the report didn’t note who exactly will meet their maker, the character in question is

Every DC Comics Movie Ranked From Worst to Best, Including ‘Justice League’
The DC Comics universe hasn’t flooded the big screen the way Marvel ones have, but the DC brand has been hitting the big screen longer in the era of color, starting with the 1966 Adam WestBatman.” We ranked all those modern flicks, from “Batman: The Movie” to “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League.” 31. “Jonah Hex” (2010) Despite the efforts of Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender, this is one of the worst comic book movies of the modern era. 30. “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” (1987) Christopher Reeve is by far the best Superman. But “Superman IV” is a bomb in every sense.

Matt Reeves Already Has Someone In Mind To Replace Ben Affleck As Batman

One of the biggest questions hanging over the future of the Dceu is whether or not Ben Affleck will be staying on board as Batman for the long haul. Despite only appearing in two movies so far (well, three if you count his Suicide Squad cameos), it’s long been rumoured that the actor is looking to hang up his cowl for good. Of course, this has led to fans casting doubt over him returning for upcoming solo film The Batman, wondering if perhaps he’ll walk before the project gets off the ground.

It’s definitely possible, but according to John Campea, who previously broke the scoop that Affleck was looking to leave the role earlier in the year, there’s already a contingency plan in place if that were to happen. He claims that Hollywood insiders have told him that The Batman director Matt Reeves has a specific

How Yorgos Lanthimos Got Nicole Kidman to Go to Disturbing Places With ‘Killing of a Sacred Deer’

  • Indiewire
After Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos landed an Oscar nomination for “Dogtooth,” his twisted dystopian vision of a family trapped in deranged rituals, his agent took him around town. It was the usual routine: Promising young talent offered numerous pre-conceived projects, with no guarantee that he’d have any control over the final result. “I didn’t really know the landscape,” said Lanthimos in an interview. “I just realized it’s not what I’m interested in. I’d never be able to survive such a situation.”

That early decision paid off. After “Dogtooth,” Lanthimos churned out a series of movies that have continued to cement his status as one of the most original, visionary filmmakers working today. His movies present bleak, self-contained universes of despair, and they’re never predictable.

From The Room to Geostorm: how to make a movie so bad that people will love it

Terrible films are 10 a penny, but making something as magnificently, joyously awful as Showgirls or The Snowman? That takes real skill. Here are the rules of the Truly Bad Movie

Few things in life can rival the joy of watching a truly bad movie. Those of us who savour inept, high-profile, well-funded bombs can only look with pity on our forebears who had the misfortune to be born before motion pictures were invented. Unlike modern film buffs, who can conjure up literally thousands of bad films with just a few keystrokes (thanks to the cultural abyss that is Netflix), our luckless ancestors were forced to make do with bad plays, bad operas, bad circuses, bad auto-da-fés. How they got through their culturally barren lives without bad motion pictures is one of the great mysteries in human history. I know I couldn’t do it. Luckily we have had two films

Here’s What The Marvel Studios Intro Would Look Like With The X-Men

On the back of the recent report that Disney was interested in buying the entertainment divisions of 20th Century Fox, superhero fans went wild as they thought of the implications. Not only could it allow for a DVD release of the original cut of Star Wars: A New Hope, but it could also pave the way for the X-Men – whose rights are owned by Fox – to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is part of the Disney family.

Though a second report claimed that these talks are not moving forward at the moment, that hasn’t stopped people from imagining what an X-Men-filled McU would be like. For one, YouTuber Salacious Robot has come up with a fan-made version of the Marvel Studios opening that includes some of the biggest names in the X-Men franchise: Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto and, of course, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.

Ridley Scott casts doubt on the future of the Alien franchise

In light of the perceived failure of Alien: Covenant, and the polarising nature of Prometheus, Ridley Scott has been speaking at a Hollywood Reporter Roundtable about the future of the Alien franchise.

Speaking about his decision to pursue directorial duties on Alien: Covenant over the arguably more successful Blade Runner 2049, Scott said “It was a crossfire of too much business”, revealing that he’s involved in some way with at least six films released this year.

Alien: Covenant grossed $240m off a $97m budget, almost half of what Prometheus accrued ($403m, $130m budget), and on this Scott hinted at the future for his iconic xenomorph:-

“I figured it was a good piece of business to follow through Prometheus, which, from the ground zero, had good lift up. So we went to Covenant to perpetuate the idea and [revive] the franchise of Alien. However, I think the beast has run out,

Film Review: "The Snowman" (2017) Starring Michael Fassbender

  • CinemaRetro
By Mark Cerulli

Michael Fassbender plays a Norwegian detective with the high school bully magnet name of “Harry Hole” on the icy trail of a serial killer who always leaves a snowman at his crime scenes. Based on the, um, Hole literary series by Norwegian writer Jo NesbØ, the thriller also stars Rebecca Ferguson as a damaged policewoman trying to solve the crimes, Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons as a creepy industrialist and, curiously, Val Kilmer as an alcoholic detective who first opens up the case. (Kilmer’s rumored bout with cancer has sadly taken a toll as the actor looks nothing like the blonde Adonis he was in Top Gun and Batman Forever. It also sounded like he was dubbed throughout.) Although the Nordic scenery looks bleakly majestic due to Dion Beebe’s stunning cinematography and soaring helicopter shots, the plot twists and turns into a slushy mess.

Ridley Scott Thinks Alien Franchise Has Run Out of Steam
Alien: Awakening, the proposed next movie in Ridley Scott's prequel series, might have to scrub Alien from the title. As it doesn't sound like it will feature the iconic xenomoprh. Unfortunately, it looks like the Alien franchise may have mostly run its course. Prior to the release of Alien: Covenant earlier this year, it looked like Ridley Scott was getting ready to revive the sci-fi series in a big way, which had him speaking rather bullishly about the future. However, since the movie flopped, he's changed his tone. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview while speaking about his decision to direct Alien: Covenant, as opposed to Blade Runner 2049.

"It was a crossfire of too much business. I'm doing a lot of TV and films, there are six films going out this year. I figured it was a good piece of business to follow through Prometheus,

October Horrors 2017 Day 27 – Alien: Covenant (2017)

Alien: Covenant, 2017.

Directed by Ridley Scott.

Starring Katherine Waterston, Michael Fassbender, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollet, Cassie Hernandez, Amy Seimetz, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, Uli Latukefu and Tess Haubrich.

Synopsis:

The crew of the colonisation ship Covenant receives a mysterious distress signal leading them to land on a lush and seemingly uninhabited planet. Upon their arrival, however, the crew makes contact with a terrifying and familiar foe that threatens to kill them all.

The Alien series has long been one of my favourite film franchises. As my reviews earlier this month show, I absolutely adore the first and second films of the franchise and sincerely believe that they are two of the best horror films ever made. However, the franchise after the first two entered a seemingly perpetual state of decline, with only third and fourth films being the only enjoyable (or even
