These X-Men Days of Future Past posters highlight one thing: the film is one of the biggest and most varied wild cards of the upcoming summer movie season. Normally, any X-Men movie would be a home run, but director Bryan Singer has really swung for the fences this time, attempting to link the new “First Class” continuity with the original storyline in a massive multiple-timeline action film featuring several dozen mutants, some at two different ages.
It’s a gamble. As we get closer to the May 23 release, you’ll read much more about the film. Russ was on set, I recently saw footage in Singer’s edit bay, and we’ll start to see more footage. But one thing is for certain – the film offers a myriad of options for artistic exploration. All those mutants; all those timelines; all those actors; it’s a cornucopia of comic book inspiration.
Which brings us back to these X-Men Days of Future Past posters. One site has been recruiting talented artists and fans to make posters for the film. Below, you can see a selection of our favorites. Read More »

The Afflicted trailer might be one of the best Hollywood has released in a long time. Unlike traditional trailers, which are presented linearly, this one starts at the beginning, jumps to the end and works backward, showing how two friends’ trip around the world goes horribly, horribly wrong.
Written and directed by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse, who also co-star, the film won Best Horror film, screenplay and director at Fantastic Fest, which is about as impressive as it gets when it comes to horror competition. CBS Films will release the film online and in theaters April 4, but you can check out the insane trailer right now. Read More »
