How It Should Have Ended gives Logan a grand send-off

If Hugh Jackman had to have a swan song as Wolverine, Logan was the best possible outcome. A superhero movie that didn't feel like a superhero movie, the film served as a grim, melancholy, violent capstone for Jackman's run as the character...

Logan has a "Post-credits" scene: Oh hey, it's Deadpool!

The good news: you don't have to stay into or to the end of the credits after viewing Logan to see this particular post-credits scene. It airs right before the movie; indeed, I wasn't initially sure if it weren't part of the movie (more on ...

 
 
Logan Review photo

Review: Logan

(This is a republishing of the original review, which posted two weeks ago.) Logan is a response to a litany of unprecedented events. Comic book films are more popular than ever, the X-Men series is still a viable franchise s...

 
 
 
X-Men: Supernova photo

X-Men: Supernova actually set to shoot this year

We all knew there would be more X-Men coming. Not only does Fox like money, but in X-Men: Apocalypse they set up the Dark Phoenix saga about as subtly as a baseball bat to a Walking Dead character's head. However, these thing...

Logan gets a damn good Super Bowl spot

Logan has basically been a master class as to how to generate hype from trailers. Although we've seen most of the same footage -- this Super Bowl spot does include a few seconds of new stuff -- I'm pretty sure each time we see it it's been ...

Newest Logan trailer is bloody good

We were all stricken by the first Logan trailer for its gritty setting, somber tone, and older Logan, and it looks like the second trailer delivers that even more so. The third, and final, Wolverine film follows Logan as he struggles to kee...

Check out the trailer for Fox and Marvel's Legion TV series

With the X-Men series doing so well in theaters, Fox has been wanting to do a television series for quite a while. But since Marvel holds the rights to X-Men TV shows, any new project had to wait until the two companies could work...

Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

My mind had accepted I’d not be seing X-Men: Apocalypse in theaters. I hadn’t seen X-Men: First Class, or X-Men: Days of Future Past in theaters, and I usually see comic book movies in theaters. Go big or go home. Ultimately, I ...

Final X-Men: Apocalypse trailer features a very special guest

If you were somehow not convinced to see X-Men: Apocalypse, you sure will be after the final trailer for it. We get a little more footage than we have in the past, some cool looking fight scenes, a little bit of information for fans (and it...

 
 
 
Deadpool Review photo

Review: Deadpool

I have never read a Marvel comic. There. I said it. In fact, I’ve never read any superhero comic that isn’t about a man who dresses like a bat. I think superheroes are all well and good, but I’ve never felt compelled to go...

X-Men: Apocalypse's Super Bowl spot locks it down

I was a bit worried after X-Men: Apocalypse's first trailer seemed like a mess, but the tighter editing on this 30 second Super Bowl spot cleaned it up. Rather than seem over packed, the little tidbits we're shown are cool looking and make ...

Deadpool banned in China over graphic violence

Despite the numerous trailers, images, and impeding release date, I still can't believe Deadpool is a real film. It was talked about for years, Ryan Reynolds personally lobbied for it at every opportunity, and now it finally exists (Rated '...

Newest Deadpool trailer is more Deadpool than we can handle

Over the holiday, Fox released the second full Deadpool trailer. There're both red and green band versions and like before, the red band version is the superior one. I'm still excited for this nonetheless since it's a Deadpool film and I st...

First trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is blue

X-Men: Days of Future Past was one of the best surprises of last year. First Class was a bit rough, but Days took that foundation and built some good stuff on top of it. But while it managed a fine balance, it was a bit overstuffed thanks t...

First Red Band trailer for Deadpool is glorious

We've been anticipating this first bit of footage for some time. After all of the talk, all of the images, all of those years stuck in development, and all of the advertising, Deadpool is actually film that exists. The trailer is well cut (...

Channing Tatum reportedly leaves Gambit solo film

In an unexpected twist worthy of the comic books the project is based on, Channing Tatum has stepped away from the Gambit standalone film, according to The Wrap. This is a truly shocking development – not only was the X-Men spinoff se...

Rupert Wyatt to direct Gambit

It is kind-of mind boggling that Fox has taken so long to get a Gambit movie off the ground. The character is a fan favorite and perfect for film, and yet they've basically hobbled along for years now with the property. Thankfully Channing ...

X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting a 'Rogue Cut'

One of my biggest issues with X-Men: Days of Future Past was how many characters it tried to squeeze into its movie (which is why I'm always worrying about the sequel, Apocalypse, which is ramping up that number everyday). And it was only a...

First look at Jubilee and Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse

Every time I think X-Men: Apocalypse is packed with too many characters (or cameos at this rate), I look at their outfits and oh my jeebus do I change my mind instantly. I couldn't be happier that Apocalypse takes place in the 80s beca...

Michael Green now writing new Wolverine movie

People hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but people seemed to like The Wolverine, so a sequel presses on. Following the Fast and Furious school of naming, Hugh Jackman's one final ride will be called simply: Wolverine. Snappy. The project's o...

Olivia Munn joins X-Men: Apocalypse as Psylocke

The cast for X-Men: Apocalypse just keeps getting bigger. If you thought the last one was jam packed with mutant cameos this one seems to be setting some sort of superhero record. The latest news is that Olivia Munn will be jumping into the...

Angel joins the already jampacked X-Men: Age of Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse, the set in the 80s sequel to Days of Future Past, seems like it's adding new mutants every day. We missed the last one, Jubilee, and we're here to remedy that with Bryan Singer's latest announcement that Angel/Not Angel (...

Newest Deadpool image poops out a plot synopsis

This just seems so unreal. Deadpool releases February 12 next year.  Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who a...

Jennifer Lawrence leaving X-Men after Apocalypse

Now that Jennifer Lawrence is a huge Hollywood star, she's ready to leave her more embarrassing roles behind. Haha, no I'm sure that's not the case. With heavy hitters like Oscar Isaac joining the cast of the next X-Men sequel, Apocalypse, ...

Bryan Singer debuts X-Men: Apocalypse concept art

If you're a highly celebrated director working on a beloved genre franchise, posting illusive concept art on Instagram seems to be the latest trend.  Just a few months after District 9 director Neill Blomkamp posted his fan-driven take...

X-Men: Apocalypse gets its new Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm

After X: Men Days of Future Past sorted the X-Men series out, it's time to move forward...by moving backward again. Set to take place in the 80s and following the returning cast from the First Class (along with Hugh Jackman in talks to retu...

Nick's Top 10 Movie Music Moments of 2014

Music plays an integral role in film. Easily ignored, easily forgotten, a film's soundtrack is the little celebrated framework of cinema. But when sound and sight marry into a great scene, you get some of the best moments. Like in 2013, 201...

Nick's Top 5 Sequels of 2014

We've seen more sequels released the last few years than we have in a long time. While 2015 seems to continue that trend, last year showed that we shouldn't automatically write off a film just because it's a sequel. I've seen so many good s...
