Channing Tatum has long been attached to play Gambit in the X-Men universe. We just don’t know when we’ll first see him in the costume. Could it be X-Men Apocalypse in May 2016? Maybe. But the actor took to his social media to reveal that a release date has now been set for a Gambit solo movie. It’ll be out on October 7, 2016. Read more about the Gambit movie release date below.

Last month after we learned that Sony was discussing a possible crossover movie between 21 Jump Street and Men in Black, I wrote a list of 5 Movie Crossovers That Could Be Ridiculous Fun.
One of my ridiculous ideas was for 20th Century Fox to make Die Hard 24/7: Alien Invasion — John McClane, now head of security at a huge Casino resort either in China (because, well, co-production money) or Dubai, who is working to stop one of the biggest heists in the history of ever (another current trend). As it turns out, the mastermind trying to rob the casino is 24’s Jack Bauer (his daughter Kim is being held hostage, cougar or something, and he is being forced into it). The story starts as McClane vs. Bauer but all hell breaks loose when an alien ship crashes within the state of the art complex, which of course goes into lockdown and a swarm of xenomorphs are let on the lose. The two men must now work together against the bigger threat.
Ridiculous? Yes. One of my favorite comments from the post was “Die Hard/24/Alien Crossover is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I’d see it at least six times at the theatre.” The idea isn’t completely original, Fox was at one time developing a Die Hard 24/7 film which would have seen John McClane and Jack Bauer team up against a global threat but for whatever reason, the project fell into development hell and we got that horrible 24: Live Another Day event series instead. Anyway, this is just a long intro to present a fan made trailer that was sent to me that almost visualizes my ridiculous crossover movie pitch. Hit the jump and watch the fan made DIE HARD: Alien VS Predator Teaser Trailer.

One ripple from the decisions being made about Sony’s film The Interview is already being felt at another company. New Regency had been setting up a darkly comic film called Pyongyang to shoot in early 2015. The film, to be directed by Gore Verbinski with Steve Carell starring, was written to take place in the North Korean capital city after which the movie is named. Now, however, the picture has been scrapped. Read More »

At this point you’d have to be a fool to bet against Marvel, and outright crazy to bet against Star Wars. So, not very surprisingly, two major projects have just backed down from competitions against Ant-Man and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Kung Fu Panda 3 has scurried away from its original holiday 2015 release date, while Pan flits over to a weekend not occupied by Ant-Man. More details on the Kung Fu Panda 3 and Pan release date changes after the jump. Read More »
Fifteen years ago, this was it. This was everything I wanted from the Internet. Access behind the scenes of the new Star Wars movie. Today, not much has changed. We’d all kill for even a glimpse at what was going on on the set of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars The Force Awakens. But we’ll have to wait, just like we did in 1999 when George Lucas released Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
Maybe in fifteen years, and probably sooner, we’ll see what happened on the set of The Force Awakens. Today, we’ll have to settle for 150 photos from the production of another highly anticipated Lucasfilm blockbuster. Below, see 150 behind the scenes photos from George Lucas’ Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Read More »

Now that the buzz surrounding Spectre has calmed down a bit, it’s time to check in on 2015’s other action-packed thriller about a suave British spy with a taste for finely tailored suits and outrageously advanced gadgets. Fox has just released a new red-band trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as a secret agent who recruits a street kid (Taron Egerton) into the service.
Matthew Vaughn is directing the film based on a Mark Millar comic, and we all remember how much fun we had the last time that happened. Kingsman: The Secret Service seems to be cut from the same crazy, bloody, “fuck”-filled cloth. Watch the Kingsman The Secret Service red band trailer after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Buried in the news of 20th Century Fox finally greenlighting a sequel to Independence Day was a major change in the release strategy. Once envisioned as a trilogy, Roland Emmerich is now only making one sequel, not two like originally planned. There was no reason given for the change and, frankly, it was a tad worrysome as a fan. Was this new Independence Day not worthy of a sequel itself?
Well, that’s not the case at all. It’s much more logical than that. In a new interview, series co-creator and producer Dean Devlin explains the reasoning for only making one Independence Day sequel. For now. Read More »
