X-Men Dazzler

In April of 2016, about a month before X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, actress Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) tweeted a photo of her character, Jean Grey, at a mall with Scott Summers, aka Cyclops (Tye Sheridan). They were admiring the album cover of Dazzler, a mutant singer with the ability to create displays of light and energy who hadn’t appeared on screen in any X-Men movie up to that point. That scene in the mall ended up being cut from the film, but a new report indicates that Dazzler is going to appear in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the new X-Men sequel that will be directed by Simon Kinberg.

Read about the X-Men Dazzler casting news below.

Columbus trailer

John Cho has long deserved a romantic leading man role after paying his dues for years in the broad comedy of Harold and Kumar and as second fiddle in action franchises like Star Trek. He even gave an underrated performance in Selfie, a surprisingly charming TV show with a terrible title. But now it seems like he’s finally been given the spotlight he deserves in the Sundance darling, Columbus.

And you can see him get that spotlight in the trailer for Columbus, which stars Cho as the son of an ailing professor and Haley Lu Richardson as the young drifting architecture enthusiast with whom he strikes up a friendship.

1966 Batman Batcave Sculpture

Next month, the /Film crew will be making their annual trip to San Diego Comic-Con. Even though we’ll be waiting in long lines to make sure we can cover the biggest panels at the convention and get all the latest news about upcoming movies and all our favorite TV shows, we also like to wander the show floor to see what kind of cool stuff we can get our hands on. There are plenty of exclusives only available at SDCC, but thankfully, there are some you can get online from the comfort of your own home.

Factory Entertainment has revealed one of their own 2017 San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, and it’s pretty damn impressive. The collectible company has a desktop sculpture of the Batcave from the classic Batman TV series from 1966, and it even rotates from the incognito mountainside where the Batmobile enters to reveal the inside of the Caped Crusader’s secret lair.

Check out photos of the 1966 Batman Batcave sculpture below. Read More »

The Incredible Jessica James Trailer

You might know Jessica Williams from her time as a correspondent on The Daily Show when Jon Stewart was still hosting the show. However, her indie romantic comedy that debuted at Sundance earlier this year has started turning some heads. Hopefully, she’ll become a movie star.

The Incredible Jessica James finds Jones playing an aspiring playwright in New York City. She’s confident, blunt, charming and hilarious, but she’s also recovering form a big break-up and finds her life not entirely under control. That makes a new relationship and her uncertainty about her career that much more difficult to deal with. We’ve all been there before.

hack/slash movie

As horror’s gender pendulum slowly swings back towards XX chromosomes, I’m ready to make a plea. “For more female leading characters?” In a way, but frankly, horror’s the one genre that empowers women more than most. “For more female filmmakers?” Hopefully, but creators, Film Twitter, and the general cinema public are already voicing this angle with appropriate fury. “Then can you just tell us you insufferable sod?” Impatient, are we? For what I’m about to demand, I am too.

I want a Hack/Slash movie franchise, and even if you haven’t read the comics, you want one, too. You may just not know it yet.

Preacher Season 2 Promo

Preacher is back for a second season on AMC. Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are on the road looking for God but they’re not alone – The Cowboy (Graham McTavish), introduced last season, is on their tail.

Showrunner Sam Catlin developed the Preacher series alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and the second season continues to toy with elements of the comic book. For instance, Eugene (Ian Colletti) is in Hell, reliving his “Arseface” origin while the lead trio meet new characters back on Earth.

Catlin spoke with /Film by phone this week to discuss Preacher season 2. While he was tight-lipped on some spoilers, he revealed some major comic book characters coming this season and addressed some of the encounters in the first three episodes of the new season.

Transformers The Last Knight Credits Scene

Transformers: The Last Knight is in theaters now and pretty much everyone agrees that it’s quite an insane sequel. It’s packed full of so many characters, exposition, and craziness that you kind of need to see it for yourself.

Let’s talk about the Transformers The Last Knight credits scene and what it means for the future of the franchise, but beware of spoilers for the sequel if you haven’t seen it yet. Read More »
