If you get a hard-on for character posters then no doubt this collection of assets from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will tip you right over the edge. It's a mixed bag of one-sheets each displaying what appears to be varying levels of quality and most of which revolve around Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman). Most characters have been doubled up together on the new posters but we do get some more glimpses at the shapely figure of Miss Jennifer Lawrence ('House at the End of the Street'). Also appearing are James McAvoy ('Wanted'), Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen ('The Hobbit'), Halle Berry ('Gothika'), Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore and Nicholas Hoult ('Warm Bodies'). You can check them all out below. »
A new UK trailer for Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has emerged along with a fresh cast-filled poster. The coming together of 'X-Men' past and present as well as the coming together of the mutants and their past selves in what will no doubt be an action packed time twisting head scratcher. And any trailer that includes a Patrick Stewart voiceover will always give it a decent seal of quality. The sequel/prequel stars Stewart, James McAvoy ('Wanted'), Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen ('The Hobbit'), Jennifer Lawrence ('House at the End of the Street'), Halle Berry ('Gothika'), Anna Paquin ('True Blood'), Ellen Page ('Inception'), Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult ('Warm Bodies'), Evan Peters ('American Horror Story') and Hugh Jackman ('Les Miserables').

The latest entry in Liam Neeson’s Career Resurgence Extravaganza, Non-Stop has Neeson’s alcoholic air marshal Bill Marks unravel a mysterious bomb threat aboard a flight from New York to London. (Said flight is, in fact, non-stop.) When it’s not withholding key pieces of its mystery, Jaume Collet-Serra’s thriller is both tense and supremely silly — imagine Flightplan’s laser focus on its central character with Speed’s one-upsmanship.
Having previously scored Collet-Serra’s Unknown (also starring Neeson), John Ottman’s no stranger to genre. From Eight-Legged Freaks to Gothika, he’s also scored nearly all of Bryan Singer’s films since the early days of Public Access. His work in Singer’s ill-fated Superman Returns is a standout highlight, showing a deep reverence for John Williams’ importance to the original’s iconography. In short, Ottman has a flexible toolkit, »

You can put it down to luck, clever career management or a combination of the two, but there's no doubting that over the past three years Matthew McConaughey has pulled off a career comeback, a 'McConaissance', the likes of which Hollywood has rarely seen.
After a string of certified duffers - including Sahara, Fool's Gold and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past - McConaughey is now on a winning streak that could well culminate in him lifting the Best Actor Academy Award next month for Dallas Buyers Club. He's also one of the most in-demand A-listers around, with the likes of Steven Soderbergh, Martin Scorsese, Richard Linkater, William Friedkin and Christopher Nolan all casting him in prestige projects.
If McConaughey, the one-time shirtless, tussle-haired Texas Surfer, Dude, can turn things around so dramatically, surely there are other big name actors out there with a locker full of surprises? Digital Spy takes a »
There's always been something about popular horror films that's undeniably sexy. It may seem weird to someone who's not a fan of the genre to consider that the creepy themes, jolting frights and even slasher sagas often have sexual elements. But more often than not, it's true.
For some, it's simply the tie-in between heightened senses and sexuality. There are even scientific, psychological ties between fear, adrenaline and arousal that explain why something about getting scared out of your mind can be oddly sexy. Then of course there's also the fact that horror films are so common for date nights (it's just a great excuse to "comfort" one another).
In some cases the tie between horror and sex has become a bit more blatant. For example, there's no denying the sexualization of vampires in the Twilight series! Taking things a step further, Adam & Eve's adult video section even features a »
