X-Men TV Series

We’re just a few weeks away from FX unleashing their new comic book series Legion. The new TV show follows David (Dan Stevens), a man who has been schizophrenic since he was a child, being placed in and out of psychiatric hospitals. While David and all those around him have presumed that he’s merely mentally ill, the realization soon begins to set in that all of these voices and visions in his head may be a result of him being a mutant.

Legion is based on a Marvel Comics title where David is the son of Professor Charles Xavier, and since it involves mutants in general, fans have been wondering how/if the series will connect to the X-Men movies. Unfortunately, for those hoping for some kind of connective tissue, it has been further confirmed that Legion will exist in its own universe. However, the good news is that another X-Men television series in development at FOX will not be so separated from the X-Men franchise.

Find out more about Legion and the new X-Men TV series in the works after the jump. Read More »

Margot Robbie in Focus

You don’t have to care at all about ice skating to find the story of figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan to be one of the most jaw-dropping and mesmerizing tales of greed, ambition, and low-rent crime to ever transpire outside of a Coen brothers movie. So yeah, put I, Tonya on your radar, because the always wonderful Margot Robbie will be playing the disgraced Olympian in Craig Gillespie‘s new movie. Oh, and our first look at Robbie as Harding on the set of the film has arrived.

clowntergiest trailer

The title of this movie is Clowntergeist and it is a horror movie about an evil clown. Specifically, it is a horror movie about a clown that is possessed by a demon and stalks around a small town, leaving messages on balloons informing his victims exactly when he will kill them. It seems to contain shades of The Ring, It, and Poltergeist. It looks, by design, completely absurd and possibly very bad. It also looks like it could be, under the right circumstances, kind of fun? Maybe? You can watch the trailer and judge for yourself.

nebula infinity war

There are days where trying to remember which Marvel characters will actually play a role in Avengers: Infinity War is like herding cats: an impossible, useless task that will only give you a headache after awhile. Perhaps the best course of action is to simply default to “Every single Marvel Cinematic Universe Character is going to pop up in the movie in some capacity” and leave it at that. Let’s stick with that second one for now, especially since Karen Gillan has officially said, out loud, in front a reporter, that Nebula will play a role in the upcoming galaxy-wide crossover movie.

true detective season 3

While streaming services like Netflix and Amazon tend to grab all the headlines and dominate much of the modern discourse on the future of television, it’s sometimes remarkable how pop culture connoisseurs tend to stop in their tracks and pay attention whenever HBO, a member of the old TV guard if there ever was one, debuts a new show. Sometimes, that show is bad. Sometimes, that show is life-changing. Sometimes, as is the case with The Young Pope, that show is so peculiar that the internet simply doesn’t know what to make of it.

In short, I like to pay attention to what HBO is doing, so that means that I’m paying attention when their president of original programming talks about more True Detective, The Night Of, and Deadwood.

Santa Clarita Diet Trailer

A new Netflix original comedy series is coming to the streaming service next month starring Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, but it’s not exactly what you would expect from either of them.

Santa Clarita Diet might sound like the latest weight loss craze for people to make their New Year’s resolutions come to fruition (and the teasers from a little while back certainly played into that). But it’s actually the new comedy series that finds Drew Barrymore as a normal suburban woman who happens to have died at some point, and yet has inexplicably kept on living her life, but with one big change: she is now hungry for raw flesh.

As any devoted husband would do, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) decides to help her satisfy her cravings, and her teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) is totally cool with it too. Watch the new Santa Clarita Diet trailer to see how this all shakes out. Read More »

Injustce 2 Trailer

Normally we don’t feature video game trailers here, but today brings something that DC Comics fans might need to hold them over until they get to see Wonder Woman and Justice League hit the big screen this year.

For those who aren’t gamers out there, Injustice: Gods Among Us offered up a video game that allowed players to control one of several DC Comics heroes and villains in a fight to the death. Now Injustice 2 follows up the events that brought these comic characters to fight the first time around by introducing a new element to the story: Brainiac.

In a new Injustice 2 trailer, we get a glimpse into the driving force of a civil war between DC’s superheroes brewing yet again, and it will bring some rather intriguing face-offs that you won’t ever see in the DCEU on the big screen. Watch after the jump. Read More »

Green Lantern Sterling K. Brown

Of all the films on the upcoming DCEU slate, Green Lantern Corps might be the most mysterious. Yes, it’s got a release date — and, as of last week, screenwriters — but not much more than that. We don’t know who’ll direct it, who’ll star, or what the story will be.

In the absence of any concrete information, then, let’s engage in the time-honored traditions of wishful thinking and wild speculation. First up, actor Sterling K. Brown has also noticed Green Lantern Corps has yet to cast any leads, and would like to throw his hat into the ring. And next, director Duncan Jones — who, to be very clear, is not officially associated with the film in any way that we know of — has some thoughts on how to make the story interesting.  Read More »

Zoe Kravitz in Big Little Lies

Zoë Kravitz had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo as Leta Lestrange in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but as you’ve probably guessed, she’ll have a far bigger role in the sequels. In a recent interview, the actor discussed her character’s “complex” relationship with Newt Scamander, talking up how “excited” she is to come back for more.  Read More »

Contact Mirror Shot

This year the sci-fi drama Arrival has been receiving all sorts of praise. Thanks to the emotional core that ties character drama to grounded science fiction, the film from Denis Villeneuve has been compared to a similar film: Robert Zemeckis‘ adaptation of Carl Sagan’s novel Contact.

Contact is a little more visceral and unbelievable than Arrival, but it’s still one of the better sci-fi movies to come out of the 1990s. And much like Arrival had some incredible visual effects that were not easily spotted by even the most avid of movie watchers, Contact had some impressive, state-of-the-art visual effects work done at the time. But there’s one particular shot that you probably didn’t even know was a visual effect.
