This election season has been something else. There has been so much nonsense and stupidity thrown around in this intense political climate that many have pointed to the fact that Mike Judge‘s cult favorite comedy Idiocracy predicted that this kind of thing would eventually happen. In fact, there were supposed to be some Idiocracy-themed political ads that would have went after candidate Donald Trump, but they were axed by 20th Century Fox, and you can probably guess why.
But that’s not stopping Mike Judge and Idiocracy from making waves this election season. This year happens to mark the 10th anniversary of the comedy that features some rather insightful social commentary, much of which has become eerily accurate in the wake of the current election, and to celebrate; the film will be coming back to theaters next month thanks to Alamo Drafthouse.

When you’re dealing with the end of the world, things can get deadly serious. But as you will see on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, even in the face of grave danger, the cast makes plenty of time to get wacky. Bloopers are always an amusing part of the filmmaking process, but when then outtakes feature characters in full superhero wardrobe, they’re just that much more entertaining.
If you ever wanted to see Oscar Isaac dance in the creaky Apocalypse suit, Michael Fassbender flirt with James McAvoy, or Jennifer Lawrence elbow someone in the face, you can see all that and more in the X-Men Apocalypse bloopers reel after the jump. Read More »

Before crafting a sequel to his own The Terminator, writer/director James Cameron made a career out of making sequels to other filmmakers’ projects. The man who would brings us Avatar, True Lies and Titanic began his career as the writer/director of Piranha Part Two: The Spawning, but he would follow it by having the same jobs on Aliens, in addition to writing Rambo: First Blood Part II. In fact, James Cameron wrote Aliens and Rambo First Blood Part II at the same time.

In his legendary book Adventures in the Screen Trade, screenwriter William Goldman wrote of the film industry: “Nobody knows anything. Not one person in the entire motion picture field knows for a certainty what’s going to work. Every time out it’s a guess and if you’re lucky, an educated one.” And he’s right. Making predictions about the movie biz is like trying to predict the weather. However, there does seem to be one hard and fast rule: never bet against James Cameron. No matter your opinion on his movies, the man’s track record has never faltered. He says he’ll do something crazy, and then he does it and then it makes everyone a whole lotta money.
So when Cameron chats about expanding the Avatar universe in a new interview, I pay close attention. Not because I love Avatar (although I do like it just fine), but because Cameron’s insane plans and ambitious projects have this habit of actually, you know, working.

Back before X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, 20th Century Fox delivered a retro commercial for Xavier’s School for the Gifted, looking like it was ripped straight off a VHS tape. The video featured Jubilee, and she probably got just as much screen time there as she did in the final movie despite being all over the marketing materials leading up to the movie. Now Xavier’s School for the Gifted gets one more retro push with another viral video arriving just in time to promote the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse on home video.
