Gambit movie

It’s been two years since Channing Tatum took the Hall H stage at Comic-Con 2015 to take a photo with the massive assemblage of X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool cast members during 20th Century Fox’s panel.

The film has experienced a revolving door of directors over the past year or so, and now Tatum says that the movie’s script is being reworked in the wake of the success of unconventional X-Men film like Deadpool and Logan. Get the latest info on the long-brewing Gambit movie below.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Comic-Con Panel

When Kingsman: The Secret Service arrived in 2014, it was an underdog that became a surprise box office hit. Now, three years later, the sequel arrives with a different set of expectations. Can Kingsman: The Golden Circle live up to the nuttiness of the first movie? Does it have the flash and energy necessary to woo a Hall H crowd at Comic-Con?

From the moment the panel began, the answer was yes. Comic-Con crowds are infamously easy to please (everyone is there to have a good time!), but the footage from director Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming sequel was violent and frantic and self-aware and darkly humorous. It looked very much like the first movie, albeit with a shinier, glossier coat.

Kingsman The Golden Circle Red Band Trailer

Everyone’s bleeding in red, white, and blue in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

The over-the-top, gratuitous violence that we knew and loved in 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service is back and raring to go in the new red band trailer for its sequel, which sees Taron Egerton return as Eggsy, who clashes with crass American Statesman, lead by Channing Tatum and Pedro Pascal. And a beloved character from the first film makes a surprising return.

Deadpool 2

When it comes to 20th Century Fox’s surprise smash hit Deadpool, I’m in the extreme minority of people who just didn’t think the R-rated superhero comedy was very funny. Yes, I know you probably loved it, but comedy is super subjective, and for some reason it just didn’t work for me. But there’s good news for me and the three other people on Earth who didn’t think the film delivered as well as it could have the comedy department: a few of the cast members of Deadpool 2 claim the new sequel will be funnier than the original.

It’s been crickets since then, but now the studio is close to locking in the men who will direct the project: Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the duo behind Catfish and Paranormal Activity 3 and 4.

planet of the apes prequel titles

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, and opinionated about something that makes us very happy…or fills us with indescribable rage. In this edition: the titles of the Planet of the Apes movies are in the wrong order and it’s. Driving. Us. Crazy.)

The Planet of the Apes reboot franchise is many things — stunning technological achievements, emotionally resonant storytelling, and testaments to genre filmmaking. But one thing they just can’t get right are the dang titles.

A title serves as people’s first impression of a movie and presents the general themes of what that film will be about. But when the titles don’t match with the content of the movie, people aren’t going to remember what the hell it was about. As for the Planet of the Apes films, as accomplished and incredible as they are, I cannot for the life of me remember what order they are supposed to be in.

Jason Clarke war for the planet of the apes

Over the three new Planet of the Apes movies, the apes having continued to work their way to the center stage. While Rise of the Planet of the Apes had its humans mostly at the forefront with Caesar, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes made most of the humans more side characters, and War for the Planet of the Apes does the same. These humans have hardly ever gotten in the way of Caesar’s story, though. They support it and are integral to his journey, especially Dawn‘s Malcolm (Jason Clarke), a human who recognized a great mind and soul in Caesar.

Below, director Matt Reeves discusses the bleak reference to Malcolm that was cut from his sequel.
