The season two finale of Wayward Pines airs tomorrow (Wednesday, June 27th), and to whet your appetite we’ve got our hands on two tracks from the final score by Charlie Clouser; give them a listen here…

Chan plays a Hong Kong detective, while Knoxville is an American fugitive who joins up with him because of reasons.

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender ("12 Years A Slave"), at 39-years old, has the looks, chops and killer instinct to play the next big screen 'James Bond', now that dog-faced Daniel Craig has officially left the '007' movie franchise:
"To be honest with you", said Fassbender, "I think they should reboot the 'James Bond' series and go back to his origins as a soldier.
"I’ve got a great idea for it actually, so (producer) Barbara Broccoli talk to me..."
The stage-trained actor's feature film debut was the fantasy war epic "300" (2007), playing a 'Spartan' warrior.
He first came to prominence for his role as 'Ira' activist 'Bobby Sands' in "Hunger" (2008), for which he won a 'British Independent Film Award'.
Subsequent roles include playing a 'Royal Marines' lieutenant in "Inglourious Basterds" (2009)...

It's been a bit of an up and down year for the X-Men movie universe. Three films were supposed to hit cinemas this year, but Gambit - originally due in October - hasn't even started filming yet. Deadpool, though, proved to be the big surprise hit of the year (outside of The Secret Life Of Pets, perhaps), whilst X-Men: Apocalypse's box office is significantly down on that of X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
So where next for the X-Men films? We know that Deadpool 2 is chugging along, but in a new interview, producer Simon Kinberg has given an new update. He was chatting to That Hashtag Show and confirmed that the immediate priority is getting the currently-shooting The Wolverine 3 finished.
After that? "We start shooting Deadpool 2 at the beginning of next year, »

Deadpool may have far exceeded expectations at the box office earlier this year, but X-Men: Apocalypse crashed and burned. Far from a flop, the divisive follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past still wasn’t the $1 billion hit 20th Century Fox were hoping for, and between that and the failed Fantastic Four reboot in 2015, the studio has a lot of work to do on their Marvel properties.
While there’s no word on what’s next for that foursome, producer and writer Simon Kinberg has revealed in a new interview that with Wolverine: Weapon X currently shooting, they’ll have Deadpool 2 in production early next year, with work starting on whatever comes next for the X-Men shortly after.
“The first thing up, we’re shooting the Wolverine movie right now and we start shooting Deadpool 2 at the beginning of next year, then I sit down and start writing »

With the rise in popularity of superhero movies and a more general awareness of nerd-centric things in pop culture, all coinciding with comic book conventions like San Diego Comic Con, the art of cosplay has been lifted to a new level. At times, the level of authenticity and detail to these costumes are baffling. Some things are trickier than others though, like, if you wanted to actually shoot ice from your hands like Iceman from X-Men, for instance. YouTuber Colin Furze has you covered.
In the latest video on the Colin Furze YouTube channel, he decided to take on the challenge of being able to make a device that could do what Iceman is able to do in the X-Men movies. Granted, the end result can't do all of the crazy stuff that Bobby Drake (Iceman) can do, but it is pretty impressive. Furze decided to use liquid nitrogen and »
Fox’s treatment of Marvel properties is unacceptable. There, I’ve established how I feel. Now, let’s run down why it’s so exciting that one day we may see them work with Marvel in a capacity similar to Sony. To put it bluntly, it feels like Fox is just in it for the money. I’m aware of how capitalism works, but the difference between someone who cares about what they are doing and someone rifling through your pockets is glaringly obvious. Many of you will disagree, but let’s take a peek back in time. We’ll begin with X-Men.
In 2000, a time before Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man film, X-Men was a triumph. Not many people cared about the fact that Hugh Jackman looked nothing like the comic book version of Wolverine. It was just cool to see a man with claws tearing through stuff. But, »

One conclusion the marketing team at 20th Century Fox seem to have arrived at with their latest blockbuster fantasy Assassin’s Creed is that everyone likes Kanye West — or at least they think so. The new international trailer has just been released, and it is a truncated baby-version of the first domestic trailer. It hits all the musts: Michael Fassbender sleeping, Marion Cotillard conceit-splaining to a confused Fassbender, a CGI bird flying over Fassbender, face paint on a stern Fassbender, and jumping murders from the sky by Fassbender. This is all over Kanye West’s “I Am A God,” widely argued as a poor decision for a film set during the Spanish Inquisition. Truth be told, a more apt description is that it’s a blockbuster film based on a blockbuster video game franchise started in 2007 that has found its way into the zeitgeist of 15-to-30-somethings, so I believe Kanye works fine. »

With X-Men: Apocalypse settling for just over $500m at the global box office, in what direction should the series head next? A few thoughts.
The X-Men franchise has never been one to set the box office alight in the way that, say, The Avengers does, with 2014’s Days Of Future Past’s box office topping out at $748 million world wide. Granted, X-Men kickstarted the current cinematic superhero revolution to much acclaim but after the initial two entries in the franchise, public and critical reception began to dwindle, as did box office returns.
X-Men: First Class proved to be the creative shot in the arm that the franchise needed and with Days Of Future Past hitting the highest box office results yet, it was expected that Apocalypse would catapult the series nearer to the billion-dollar club.
But it didn’t. In fact, X-Men: Apocalypse’s take is just north of $500m, »
It's a question that's come up a lot in the last year or so:
Will Fox's X-men Ever Crossover And Interact With Marvel's Avengers?
And, while it was once just something a fanboy wet dream, these days it's actually a legitimate consideration. We can thank industry titans Sony and Disney for all of this, since they worked out the kind of deal that was once thought to be impossible: They reached an agreement that allowed for Spider-Man, whose film rights belong to Sony, to appear in Captain America: Civil War, which takes place right smack dab in the middle of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If Sony was willing to play ball with Disney, who owns Marvel Studios, then it's no longer an impossibility that we could see Deadpool ask Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) what happened to Ed Norton and Eric Bana in a future Avengers flick.
