John Wick: Chapter 2 brings Keanu Reeves back for more deadly assassin action, but this time around he’ll find himself facing whole new dangers in whole new settings. A couple of new John Wick: Chapter 2 photos reveal just what that might look like.
In one, Reeves’ John Wick makes his way down a crowded city street in a sharp suit that’s looking a little less sharp after a long day of, presumably, beating people up. The other spotlights the new villains played by Riccardo Scamarcio and Ruby Rose, also sporting killer suits. Say what you will about the morality of murdering people for a living, but these characters all look damn good doing it. Check ’em out below. Read More »
If the hints in the trailer and the details from trade reports recently weren’t enough to convince you that Logan would see the introduction of the mutant known as X-23, the confirmation you’ve been waiting for has arrived.
A new photo from the official Logan Instagram account (with the username “wponx”) has confirmed what we have all assumed for a little while now. Young actress Dafne Keen, who can be seen several times in the Logan trailer, is playing Laura Kinney, the mutant clone of Weapon X, aka Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). Check out the X-23 photo from Logan after the jump. Read More »

James Mangold has revealed the first look at Jackman’s Old Man Logan in the movie, just ahead of the first trailer’s premiere tomorrow. Get your Old Man Logan first look — and check out a teaser for the trailer — below the jump. Read More »

After flying under the radar and missing the 2016 film festival scene altogether, Martin Scorsese‘s Silence finally announced a release date a few weeks ago. As expected, the latest film from one of our greatest living filmmakers has been positioned as an Oscar contender, hitting theaters in limited release on December 23, 2016. That news followed stories about the film’s supposed 195 minute running time. And that news followed a handful of stills showing off actors like Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson looking sad and desperate. But beyond that, the film has truly lived up to its title.
Still, the mere existence of a new Scorsese movie was enough to send Silence to the top of our most anticipated movies of the Fall list, so surely a new still from the film, featuring our first look at Adam Driver, qualifies as noteworthy movie news.

There have been endless teases for the next film in the standalone Wolverine franchise that has spun off from the primary X-Men film series. Ever since the film’s title was revealed to be Logan, as seen in the first teaser poster, there has been a barrage of behind-the-scenes photos and details giving us plenty of insight into what we can expect from the R-rated comic book sequel this time.
Recent updates included news that Boyd Holbrook would be playing villain Donald Pierce, and considering his comic book history, many fans have assumed that we would also see the mutant-hunting assassins known as Reavers appear as well. Now a new photo confirms their presence in the sequel.

Ben Affleck seemed deeply skeptical when Anna Kendrick (jokingly) demanded he cast her as Robin in his solo Batman movie. But she’s got the support of at least one of Affleck’s The Batman co-stars. Joe Manganiello, who’ll play the villain Deathstroke, is throwing his weight behind the “Anna Kendrick for Robin” campaign on social media. Read More »

The dam officially broke on the third solo Wolverine movie earlier this month when we learned that Hugh Jackman‘s swan song as the adamantium-clawed mutant superhero wouldn’t even have “Wolverine” in the title. It was going to be called Logan and it was going to be a bit rougher and tougher than your average comic book movie. We learned that the film was going to take place in a dystopian future and that Professor Charles Xavier isn’t doing so hot. And after months of keeping his role a secret, we learned that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook is playing the X-Men villain Donald Pierce.
And the news keeps on coming. Now we have our first look at Stephen Merchant in character as Caliban, an albino mutant with a very interesting superpower.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
As simple as they are, the opening credits for Alien are rather iconic. All the important names of the cast and crew appear on screen as the title is slowly revealed piece by piece. It appears in the movie exactly as it did in the posters leading up to the release of the film. But at one time, the title treatment was completely different, with a much stronger influence from the xenomorphs designed by the late H.R. Giger.
Check out the alternate Alien title treatment after the jump. Read More »

In the end, all those rumors about Daniel Brühl playing Helmut Zemo in Captain America: Civil War turned out to be true. However, the version of Zemo we saw onscreen wasn’t much like the one we know from the comics. He had a completely different backstory and a completely different look. Gone were the purple mask and militaristic outfit; instead, we got a normal-looking guy in everyday civilian clothing. Were it not for the fact that Brühl’s character is explicitly identified as “Zemo” in the film, you might not even know they were supposed to be the same character.
But it seems Marvel Studios did at least consider the classic Zemo look at one point. Artist Andy Park has shared an interesting bit of conceptual art that shows what a more traditional Zemo could have looked like in Civil War. Check out the Civil War Zemo concept art below. Read More »
