Just hours after I called Mad Max: Fury Road my most anticipated film of 2015 (other staff members, such as Germain, have a different film in their top ranks) the new trailer dropped, and melted the face off the internet. This trailer is total visual overload, with very little indication of the story to come. In fact, from what we know of Fury Road, that isn’t even a misrepresentation of the film. Like The Road Warrior, this is said to be primarily an action-heavy chase film, without much dialogue at all.
Still, there are some significant clues to take out of this new trailer. Below we’ve got dozens of Mad Max Fury Road photos from the new footage, and a lot of info about what’s to come in the film. Let’s over-analyze the trailer after the break. Read More »

X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past were really the tales of Charles and Erik, two men who are almost as bad at being mortal enemies as they are at being BFFs. But according to Simon Kinberg, X-Men: Apocalypse could focus on a completely different X-relationship.
The screenwriter hinted that Jennifer Lawrence‘s Mystique could come front and center in the upcoming movie, which he says will close out the trilogy started by First Class. Beast (Nicholas Hoult) will have a strong role to play as well. Hit the jump for more on X-Men Apocalypse Mystique.

“From writer/director Jake Paltrow comes a futuristic western, told in three chapters, which inventively layers Greek tragedy over an ethereal narrative that’s steeped deeply in the values of the American West.” I’m in. Did I mention that the film has a great cast? Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Kodi Smit-McPhee lead this story. Watch the Young Ones trailer embedded after the jump.

Thursday, two new X-Men Days of Future Past posters were revealed. They were not very good. Today, nine more have hit the web. Nine. Unlike those two, these don’t appear to be theatrical. Instead these look like the $8 poster you’d purchase at Wal-Mart or Spencer’s Gifts and, surprise surprise, that actually makes them kind of cool. (Some of them at least.) Others are the same simple composition that plagued these two. Still, you’ll get some new glimpses at Ian Mckellen, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and others. Check out nine new X-Men Days of Future Past posters below.

In the Marvel Universe, everyone knows the big names: Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, etc. They probably even know some less popular characters too. But in 2014, a little known character is getting ready for the spotlight: Quicksilver. The mutant speedster, a son of Magneto in the comic books, will make his feature debut in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past on May 23 before appearing again in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
We’ll likely get our first glimpse of the Avengers version of the character sometime this summer but, today, you can see what the character, played by Evan Peters, looks like in the X-Men universe. Check it out below, along with a new image featuring Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). Read More »

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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
From the looks of it, Bryan Singer has just given us our first glimpse at a mutant from X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director of the upcoming X-Men “Inbetweenquel” tweeted an image that is obviously the character Beast, who was played by Nicholas Hoult in X-Men: First Class (as seen above) and by Kelsey Grammer in X-Men: The Last Stand. Hoult will be reprising the role in the 2014 film so, it would seem, the image is likely him in some kind of makeup test.
How does it differ from his First Class look above? Check the image out below. Read More »
