Split writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has had a very interesting career. He first struck it big in 1999 with The Sixth Sense, a film that came with a huge twist that changed how the movie was perceived, and ushered in a new sub-genre of film that Shyamalan would absolutely rule for half a decade. His follow up, Unbreakable, also had a neat twist, but that film had so much more going for it, as it took the classic comic book movie and made it so real.
In recent years, Shyamalan has fallen on hard times, as the need to create twists, and his self-indulgent desire to cast himself in his films have all but made the once promising wunderkind a wash-up, and his films are now avoided as much as they used to be anticipated. Does Split serve as a cinematic pressing of the reset button, or the final nail »

We are in the age of the cinematic reinvention of nostalgia soaked TV reboots. We have Baywatch coming out in a few months and today we have our first good look at director Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers reboot. A big screen re-imagining has been on the cards for a while. In early 2015 Detention director Joseph Kahn surprised us with a realistic, yet ultraviolent take on Saban’s treasured property. Quickly jumped upon and taken down across the internet the news quickly came out that Power Rangers was indeed coming to the big screen.
The team writing the story for this reboot includes Kong: Skull Island’s John Gatins Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama from Dracula Untold, X-Men: First Class’s Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, and, intriguingly, Max Landis. The film needs a director with a solid vision and a good head to pull all the »

This is a very bittersweet moment, Wolverine fans. 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Logan, which is going to be the last movie to feature Hugh Jackman as the iconic mutant. After nearly two decades as the character, it is finally time for him to hang up the claws, but not before appearing in what looks like it could be one of the best X-Men movies ever.
Fox only released one teaser trailer prior to this final, full-length trailer and they have been keeping details on the third solo Wolverine movie mostly under wraps. Prior to the release of this final trailer for Logan, the studio launched a website called 1974 Frames of Logan, which allowed fans to sign up and receive a limited-edition postcard from the movie. The postcards have been making their way online, giving fans an idea of what to expect. But now the trailer »

Although the previous X-Men franchise film, X-Men: Apocalypse did not do as well as expected in terms of both box office and reviews, there are high hopes for the third Wolverine movie, Logan. Hugh Jackman, who is playing the clawed mutant Wolverine, Aka Logan, for the eighth time (ninth if you count the cameo in X-Men: First Class) has given us a short plot synopsis of the upcoming movie on instagram.
Jackman wrote the following… In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. »

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming superhero drama, iBoy. The premise may seen a bit silly (see the official synopsis below), but this actually looks like it might be pretty good. Plus, it boasts quite a cast. The movie stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones, hopefully New Mutants), as well the great Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter) and Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful) as the villain. You may also recognize the actor who plays iBoy himself, Bill Milner, as the young Magneto from X-Men: First Class. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you make of it. “iBoy” follows Tom (Bill Milner), an average teenager whose world is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of his shattered smartphone embedded in his brain. He wakes from a coma to discover that returning to normal teenage life is impossible because he »
Ever since X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters last summer, fans have been kept largely in the dark about 20th Century Fox's plans for continuing the main X-Men franchise. The studio has announced a number of spin-offs, such as The New Mutants, X-Force and Gambit, but there is practically nothing known about how the studio intends to continue the flagship series. One of the more persistent rumors is that the studio will reboot the Dark Phoenix story line, which was told over the original trilogy. While that still hasn't been confirmed, a new production listing may have the most damning evidence yet that the studio is rebooting the Dark Phoenix saga.
The Dark Phoenix saga was largely told through 2003's X-2: X-Men United and 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. However, the events of 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past essentially eliminated that entire timeline, creating a brand new timeline where Jean »
I like unconventional superhero stories and Adam Randall's new movie certainly looks like it fits the bill - I just wish it had a better title.
iBoy, yes, that's *actually* what it's called, is based on a book of the same name and stars Bill Milner (Son of Rambow, X-Men: First Class) as an awkward teenage boy who has a crush on a girl played by Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones).
She invites him over to hang out and in a case of wrong-place-wrong-time, is shot by a group of thugs. He survives the ordeal but fragments of his cell phone lodged in his brain have tweaked something and now he seems to have some sort of x-ray vision along with some other extrasensory abilities so of course, he tries to use his powers for good - with mixed results.

During the attack, Tom gets shot and ends up in a coma. He awakens to discover that fragments of his smartphone have embedded in his brain, giving him super powers; now, returning to normal teenage life is impossible. With these new abilities, Tom sets out to seek revenge on the gang who attacked him and his dear friend.

A few months back, we shared with you an official Lrm Hot Rumor regarding the next proper entry in Fox's X-Men series. In a nutshell, we'd spoken to a high-level source at Fox, who exclusively revealed to us that the next chapter in the X-Men saga would be a full-on Dark Phoenix movie, based on the storyline that was so popular in the comics and on the 90s TV cartoon.

Well, now there's another rumor hitting the net that may- or may not- confirm our report.
According to the industry publication Production Weekly, the next movie in Fox's mutant saga will be called X-Men: Supernova. While this was once rumored to be the title for Josh Boone's X-Men: New Mutants, the publication makes it appear perfectly clear that Boone's film will stick with its »

Given that the contracts for X-Men: First Class stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult expired with last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the future of the main franchise is up in the air at the moment, with reports suggesting it could be “reconfigured” with a soft reboot should any of the main cast opt against a return.
We do know however that filming on the spinoff movie X-Men: The New Mutants is slated to begin this Spring, and there’s been persistent talk that James McAvoy could reprise the role of Professor Charles Xavier for that film (just yesterday rumoured star Anya Taylor-Joy seemingly confirmed his involvement) and now McAvoy has told Fandango that he’d “love” a return as Professor X – if the story is right.

When Bryan Singer’s latest X-Men flick, Apocalypse, didn’t do very well at the box office, many speculated that it might be the last we see of the actors that boarded the franchise as younger versions of the team in X-Men: First Class. Sure enough, Michael Fassbender didn’t sound very confident that he’d return as Magneto in a recent interview, and Jennifer Lawrence strongly insinuated that she wouldn’t play Mystique again – however, James McAvoy sings a slightly different tune.
Fandango caught up with the Scottish actor during the press tour for his new movie Split, and when asked about a possible return to the X-franchise, he definitely gave a more positive response than his castmates.
If they offer me a really good part, I’ll be in. If it’s not a really good part, I’ll be like ‘Eh, I’ll think about it.’ But »

A forbidden affair that ruined the lives of a man and a young girl is explored by both parties once again in the first trailer for Una. Rooney Mara stars as the title character, with Ben Mendelsohn starring as Ray, the man she ran away with 15 years ago, before their affair came to a sudden end. As you can see in this trailer, the re-emergence of Una threatens to destroy the new life that Ray has built for himself in the years following the affair.
Una, based on David Harrower's play 'Blackbird', follows a young woman's journey to reclaim her past. Fifteen years earlier, Una (Rooney Mara) ran away with an older man, Ray (Ben Mendelsohn), a crime for which he was arrested and imprisoned. When she comes across a photo of him in a trade magazine, Una tracks him down and turns up at his workplace. Her abrupt »
