Tuesday night in Los Angeles, Sony held an early screening of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s comedy, This Is The End, which opens June 12. In the film Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel all star as themselves. They, along with half of Hollywood, are at Franco’s house for a party when the world literally starts to end.
Watching the trailers, we could see a lot of promise in the film. However, mixing Hollywood gossip with gross-out humor and Biblical stakes is a weird premise with plenty of risk. Could the laughs, cameos and other surprises balance out to make an actual funny, entertaining movie? According to the tweets coming out of the screening, the answer is a resounding “Yes.” Here’s just one, from a name you may recognize, then read more below.

Wolverine and Beast are looking stylish on the set of Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director tweeted a photo of both characters, played by Hugh Jackman and Nicholas Hoult, in full ’70s regalia on the set of the 2014 film. The caption? “Welcome to 1973.”
This seems to answer one of the more interesting questions about the time-travelling narrative, which is where the immortal Wolverine would appear. (Though we may see an “older” version of the character as well.) Check it out below. Read More »

The mystery of which other summer film Edgar Wright directed a shot in has been solved. Earlier this summer, the Scott Pilgrim director teased that he directed one shot in a summer film this year that wasn’t his own. On Thursday Wright, fresh off a brand new trailer for The World’s End, took to Twitter to reveal the film in question was indeed Star Trek Into Darkness.
Wright posted a photo from the J.J. Abrams set, which looks like it takes place on Kronos, the Klingon home planet, with an IMAX camera. In the film, Kirk, Spock and Uhura find more than they bargained for on Kronos, both in the locals and also the evil John Harrison. Check it out below. Read More »
Generally, doing a Q&A on Twitter is futile. With only 140 characters total, accurately conveying the question and answer in a single tweet is a challenge. The other option, spreading the answers over several tweets, just looks bad. It’s one of the reasons why Reddit AMAs have become more of the go-to for the interative, online question and answer session with the fans.
Hugh Jackman did a Twitter Q&A for The Wolverine on Thursday and actually came up with a clever new spin. He read tweeted questions and shot video responses to them. He discussed all matter of the July 26 film, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past. We’ve embedded all eleven questions below. Read More »
Michael Bay must have really liked working with his Pain & Gain co-stars. We know he’ll next be teaming up with Mark Wahlberg for Transformers 4, but the Oscar-nominee was not the director’s first choice. That honor goes to Wahlberg’s Pain & Gain co-star, Dwayne Johnson. Johnson revealed in a Twitter interview that Bay offered the lead role to him, but he had to turn it down because he’s starring in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Maybe it’s because Iron Man 3 is coming so soon, maybe it’s because we’ve started to speculate about the rest of Marvel’s Phase Two, or maybe it’s because X-Men: Days of Future Past is on the way. Whatever it is, my level of excitement for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine has started to dissipate in the last few weeks. It probably has something to do with the first trailer, which didn’t quite wow audiences, and seemed to go away from the original Chris Claremont story we’d believed The Wolverine was based on.
The film can certainly still save itself. It won’t be out until July 26, and the film’s director took to Twitter to show some interesting behind the scenes photos from the shoot. No Hugh Jackman here, but you do get an idea of some of the film’s gorgeous location filming and supporting cast. They’re extremely promising. Read More »
