We've known that the sequel to Magic Mike was coming for a while now and a few weeks back we learned it would be called Magic Mike XXL. After all why not let all those actors strip off their clothes again for our vi...

Sabotage gets bumped to a March 28 release date

I'm not quite sure what to think about Sabotage. It's got Arnold as a cop with big guns so I lean towards dumb action flick, but then you realize that the director of one of the best cop movies of the decade, End of Watch, is...

Apocalypse showing up in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse? photo
Apocalypse showing up in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse?
by Matthew Razak

UPDATE: According to Twitter, Fox's next X-Men movie is titled X-Men: Apocalypse and is releasing May 27, 2016. No other details have been released at the moment. Original story below.

Are somewhat obscure Tweets a valid news source? It seems like we're getting bigger and bigger stories that way as directors and actors Tweet whatever they want without any care to the fanboy pandemoneum it may cause. Case in point, Zack Snyder's recent Tweet that read: "#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!"

I mean, this one isn't too hard to figure out, cut come on! That's just mean. Snyder is most likely telling us that the next X-Men film will release in 2016 and that Apocalypse will be in it. It's weird, though, that two big announcements (three if you count Snyder possibly confirming himself as director) like this landed in a simple Tweet. Villains are usually especially hidden until closer to the film's completion to help drive up speculation and interest. Wonder if the Fox people are scrambling like mad.

Then again, maybe Snyder is just Tweeting his dream for the next film.
