20th Century Fox is taking a two-pronged approach with the X-Men: Apocalypse marketing today, with two very different promo videos. On one end of the spectrum, we have a warm and fuzzy viral video that looks like something out of the ’80s, with Lana Condor‘s Jubilee inviting special folks to enroll at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. On the other, we’ve got a super-serious, super-grim clip featuring a pissed-off Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the promise of death and destruction. Check out both after the jump. Read More »

This weekend is a huge one for Seth Rogen. Not only does his comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising hit theaters starting with early shows at 7pm on Thursday night (watch the trailer right here), but his TV series adaptation of the comic book Preacher is also premiering on AMC on Sunday.
Rogen is easily one of the hardest working guys in Hollywood, but when it comes to his work at AMC for Preacher, he wasn’t satisfied with only being the executive producer and director of the show. At one point, Rogen decided he also wanted to star in the show. But he didn’t just want the lead role that ended up going to Dominic Cooper, he wanted to play every single role.

Director Mark Romanek has only been at the helm of a handful of feature films, including One Hour Photo and Never Let Me Go. But he’s had quite the lucrative career directing music videos for the likes of Taylor Swift, Madonna, Weezer and even Michael Jackson. Now he’s back behind the camera for a new music video from Justin Timberlake, and it just so happens to be for one of the many tracks that will be coming thanks to his starring role in DreamWorks Animation’s new animated musical comedy Trolls.

Most of the time, the deleted scenes that end up on the cutting room floor of any given movie don’t bring anything substantial to the movie, hence why the scene was cut to begin with. However, in the case of a sparsely seen deleted scene from the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, some new information is revealed that changes the game a little bit.
In an extended version of the scene where Nancy Thompson learns how her mother Marge and some of the other parents took matters into their own hands by killing Freddy Krueger, even more information would have been revealed that makes the nightmare stalker’s recent killing streak more personal than random.

It’s not often that I get invited down to Industrial Light & Magic in San Francisco, CA, but when the invite is thrown my way it’s usually to see something cool. Earlier this month I traveled up north to see how filmmaker Duncan Jones used ILM to create the orcs in his big screen adaptation Warcraft, based on the popular Blizzard video game series.
I’ll be completely honest with you: the marketing for this movie had done little to convince me that it was a film I wanted to see. I’m not a video gamer and have never played World of Warcraft, and to be completely honest, I’m not a big fantasy (orcs, wizards, dungeons and dragons) type of guy. But I’m a big fan of Duncan Jones and that alone had me continuously searching for reasons.
So I hopped on a plane and visited the visual effects house that George Lucas built, hoping I would be wowed. The filmmakers behind the movie pulled the curtain back to show us how the magic was created, and that in itself was not only very interesting but very impressive. So hit the jump and learn why ILM considers the Warcraft facial capture advancements to be groundbreaking.
