John Singleton’s ‘Tupac’ Goes to Open Road

John Singleton Tupac

A Tupac Shakur biopic has been in the works for a long, long time — so long, in fact, that it was starting to look like the film would never actually happen. But now it’s finally coming together for real, with a distributor and everything.

Open Road Films has just picked up the U.S. rights to Tupac. John Singleton is set to direct. What’s still missing is a star who can capture the late rapper’s indelible spirit. More details on the film after the jump.

X-Men Days of Future Past Rogue

As of last year, it looked like Anna Paquin‘s Rogue was going to be one of the few mutants not returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Though she’d already shot some footage, director Bryan Singer ultimately didn’t have room for her one and only scene, and so Rogue ended up on the cutting room floor.

Or so we thought. Now it appears that Rogue was never out of the movie and, in fact, that Singer couldn’t have taken her out if he’d wanted to. Find out why after the jump.

‘Cold in July’ Trailer: Michael C. Hall Kills Again

Cold in July trailer

Michael C. Hall‘s days as a serial killer may be behind him, but his days as a more ordinary, accidental kind of killer are not.

Guardians of the Galaxy featurette

Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.

So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

If I Stay

Chloë Grace Moretz is no stranger to (onscreen) life-or-death situations. She’s played a superhero, a vampire, and a telekinetic outsider with a furious grudge. But she’s never been in one quite like this.

Directed by R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) and based on the novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay stars Moretz as a bright, talented teen who falls into a coma after a car accident kills the rest of her family. She’s faced with a choice — wake up an orphan and get about the hard work of moving on, or let go and die with her loved ones. Jamie Blackley plays her punk rock boyfriend, who may just give her something to live for.

X-Men Days of Future Past

After some intense promos and clips (and a couple of truly WTF Carl’s Jr. commercials), Fox has released one final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer.

As usual, the video has mutant heroes battling mean humans, terrifying Sentinels, and their own inner angst across two different timelines. What’s different is that this particular trailer plays up Wolverine’s role in the whole thing. Though he doesn’t tend to be much of a team player, desperate times call for desperate measures, so this one has him running around the ’70s trying to get the gang together.

Watch the new X-Men Days of Future Past trailer, which includes tons of new footage, after the jump. Read More »

Third Person trailer

If Valentine’s Day (or Love Actually, or New Year’s Eve, or He’s Just Not That Into You) were reimagined as a brooding drama instead of a fluffy comedy, it might look kind of like Paul HaggisThird Person. The drama follows three intersecting tales, each featuring a couple at a crossroads.

In Paris, a recently separated novelist (Liam Neeson) and a clever journalist (Olivia Wilde) are engaging in an affair. Over in Rome, an American businessman (Adrien Brody) is maybe being duped by a beautiful local (Moran Atias). And across the Atlantic, two exes (Mila Kunis and James Franco, giving us the Oz the Great and Powerful reunion we didn’t ask for) are battling over parental custody in New York City.

The first Third Person trailer has just hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.

Breaking Bad alternate ending

As it is, the Breaking Bad finale was pretty damn violent. But apparently, things could’ve gotten even bloodier. According to showrunner Vince Gilligan, at one point the writers were considering killing off just about everybody in a “Wild Bunch bloodbath of an ending.”

So what made them change their minds? Hit the jump to read Gilligan’s explanation — as well as details on some other Breaking Bad alternate endings that could’ve been.
