Brown (This Is Us), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), and Olivia Munn (The Newsroom).

‘Logan’ Images: X-23 Unleashes the Fury

The latest trailer for Logan continued to help make James Mangold‘s film stand out from the herd. Everything we’ve seen so far from the R-rated comic book movie implies what Mangold has been saying all along: this isn’t your average superhero movie.  Hugh Jackman recently described Logan as a slightly more violent Little Miss Sunshine, which isn’t the typical go-to reference for most comic book movies.

Below, check out some new Logan images.

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

What If Mark Hamill Didn't Return for Star Wars Episode 7

Earlier today, we finally learned the title of Rian Johnson‘s upcoming Star Wars movie, the sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the eighth film of the “Skywalker Saga.” Finally, we can stop writing Star Wars: Episode 8 and start writing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Man, that feels good. I’m going to write it again. Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Ooh.

If you want to know how fans are reacting to the new title, you can hit up any number of comments section and Twitter threads (and through my social media window, the response has been mostly positive followed by “But is that a singular or plural Jedi?!”). If you want to know how Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, reacted to the tile reveal, you’ll just have to watch the video below.

Godzilla 2 Writers

UPDATE 2: Now, months later, Variety has added the official confirmation that Michael Dougherty is directing Godzilla 2. Our original article runs below.

UPDATE: After we learned yesterday that Godzilla 2 would be scripted by Krampus writers Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields, it turns out that one of them will also be directing. ScreenCrush reports Michael Dougherty will be directing Godzilla 2 as well. Legendary must have been very pleased with the work he turned in as the director of Krampus, which has some of the coolest horror monsters to hit the big screen in awhile.

Our original story from October 20th follows below. Read More »

neill blomkamp's aliens sequel

We likely won’t see Ripley, Newt, and Corporal Hicks again on the big screen. If Newt and Hicks ever do return from the dead, it’s probably not going to happen in Neill Bomkamp‘s Alien film. The District 9 and Chappie director was going to bring the characters back for his Alien sequel, a direct sequel to Aliens that was meant to give Ripley a proper ending. According to Blomkamp, the film probably isn’t going to get made.

Below, learn more about Neil Blomkamp’s Alien sequel we might never see.

knights of the old republic

In 2003, back when the prequels were making it really hard to be a Star Wars fan, Bioware’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was a flicker of light in the darkness. It’s not just the best Star Wars video game I’ve ever played – it’s one of the best and most memorable video games I’ve played period, a beautifully constructed RPG that gives the player a great deal of agency in shaping the story. Bioware would refine the game’s mechanics with the Mass Effect series, but I’ll never forget playing through Knights of the Old Republic…mainly because I beat it three or four times.

Like so much of the previously established Star Wars timeline, the events of Knights of the Old Republic were made “Legends” when Disney acquired Lucasfilm and everyone decided to wipe the slate clean and rebuild the series canon from scratch. However, last night’s episode of Star Wars Rebels referenced a key event from the game, suggesting that this Legend may very well return to the realm of fact.

Whenever we talk about the Golden Raspberry Awards, alternatively known as the Razzies and A Cheap Exercise in Snark That Doesn’t Actually Go After the Worst Movies of the Year But Rather the Most Obvious Punching Bags, it’s important to remember that these “awards” are the worst. With that said, Zoolander 2 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice led the 2017 Razzie nominations.
