The X-Men: Apocalypse trailer hit the web today, and based on the 200 comments left on that post, it’s fair to say the response has been mixed thus far. The footage for director Bryan Singer‘s sequel teased some high stakes, new characters, its godlike villain, and, most notably, a very bald head.

Nicholas Hoult has spent the past few years playing zombies and furry blue superheroes and sympathetic post-apocalyptic henchmen, so it’s only natural that he’d eventually end up in a movie that doesn’t require him to be slathered in prosthetics. That movie is Kill Your Friends, a darkly comedic thriller based on the novel by John Niven. A new trailer for the film has arrived and it presents a side of Hoult we haven’t been getting recently. Namely, the obsessive, unhinged, murder-y side.
Watch the new Kill Your Friends trailer after the jump.

If we were to measure a film’s success in cultural impact and not box office, Mad Max: Fury Road would be the biggest movie of 2015. It may have only earned a fraction of the cash hoarded by Jurassic World and Furious 7, but no film this year has inspired so much enthusiasm. The memes are abundant. Every artist took time to draw Furiosa. George Miller‘s action masterpiece transformed the internet into a sweaty, shaken, profoundly inspired mass of pure adrenaline.
So yeah, Warner Bros. has decided to push their post-apocalyptic feminist action extravaganza for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. It won’t win (and it probably won’t even get nominated), but that wouldn’t be the first time a masterpiece has been ignored by the Oscars.
Get all shiny and chrome with the Fury Road Oscars news after the jump.

The Catcher in the Rye author JD Salinger was so reclusive that a documentary about the author did huge business, and we’re not at all surprised to see that a dramatic biopic is in the works. Rebel in the Rye, written and directed by Danny Strong (Empire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), will tell Salinger’s story with Nicholas Hoult in the lead role. The script, based on one biography of the author, appears to be wide in scope, encompassing Salinger’s young life, war service, and his literary development and success. Read More »
This weekend brings Zac Efron’s aspiring DJ movie We Are Your Friends, but the United Kingdom has a literally more cutthroat story set in the music industry.

Among those on the production’s radar are Taron Egerton, Jack Reynor, Nicholas Hoult, Jack Huston, and possibly Dylan O’Brien. Otto Hathurst (Peaky Blinders) is directing. More about the Robin Hood Origins shortlist after the jump. Read More »

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »
