David Blaine is a magician best known for making magic cool again in the late 1990’s with his street magic specials. His detour into crazy stunts that seemingly tested his body’s limits was not quite as interesting as his personal slight of hand wizardry, and in recent years he has television appearances have become rarer. He returned in 2013 with the ABC special David Blaine: Real or Magic, which featured Blaine performing his trademark magic for celebrities and public figures.
He returns with a new special next month entitled David Blaine: Beyond Magic, which takes the same approach, featuring the likes of Emma Stone, Johnny Depp, John Travolta, Margot Robbie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Patrick Stewart, and more. The first David Blaine: Beyond Magic trailer has been released, watch it now after the jump.

Earlier today we saw the first Logan trailer, which is cut to Johnny Cash‘s cover of NIN’s “Hurt.” Perhaps not a terribly subtle song choice, but it’s pretty damn effective. The fun nod to Mangold’s Walk the Line aside, the song choice also hints the filmmaker is bringing audiences a slightly different offering from the superhero genre, and that was the Mangold and 20th Century Fox’s intent with the trailer.
Below, James Mangold discusses Logan’s timeline and his aspirations for the film.

The first trailer for Logan arrived this morning and it’s safe to say that the look and feel of this movie is unlike any other X-Men movie. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman seem intent on bringing the saga of Wolverine to a definitive and dramatic close, complete with a trailer that is as solemn as it is exciting.
We’re still in the early days of the film’s marketing and much about the movie remains under wraps, but there’s still a lot to dig into here. Let’s comb through that trailer shot-by-shot and frame-by-frame and see what we can discover. Speculation, and maybe accidental spoilers, follow.

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for the past 16 years. To give you a sense of just how long that is, he’s been in that role before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was even a twinkle in Disney’s eye. He’s lasted through two different Batmen, two different Supermen, and three different Spider-Men. Heck, he even managed to stay on when his own franchise rebooted itself with X-Men: First Class.
But everything’s gotta come to an end sometime. Next year brings Jackman’s next and last performance as the mutant superhero, in the Wolverine solo movie Logan. Directed by James Mangold, the new movie sees Wolverine as we’ve never seen him before: as an old and ailing man. The first Logan trailer has just arrived, and you can watch it below.
UPDATE: The Logan red-band trailer is also here, and you can watch it below. Read More »
We’ve read a decent amount of information this week about Logan, Hugh Jackman‘s eighth and final outing as the Wolverine. The film comes out in less than five months, but because 20th Century Fox and all involved have done a fine job keeping details about James Mangold‘s sequel under wraps, we don’t know a whole lot about the movie. Not until this week did we even know who Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) was playing in the film. Holbrook was confirmed as one the film’s villains, but a new look at Logan shows Donald Pierce (Holbrook) maybe isn’t alone in his fight against the Wolverine.
Below, see the villain a new Logan photo calls to mind.

This week has been chock full of updates regarding Wolverine 3. After Hugh Jackman promised a reveal regarding the X-Men spin-off sequel earlier this week, we got a teaser poster with an official title and some intriguing plot details. The film is called Logan, and it will see the mutant known as Wolverine aged, not healing as quickly or efficiently as he used to, and he’s drinking all the time. In addition, we heard that he’s been taking care of an aging Professor X, whose powers have become unstable as well.
To follow up those details, we now have our first official look at Patrick Stewart as Professor X in a new Logan photo. It’s clear he’s not doing well in the year 2024, and he might even be losing his sight. Read More »

Earlier today we finally learned the title of Hugh Jackman‘s next and last Wolverine movie: Logan. So with that out of the way, let’s dig into some of the finer details.
The first Logan poster offered a few intriguing clues about the plot of the film, from the scars and scratches on Wolverine’s arm to the tiny (yet freakishly long-fingered) hand gripping his. Now a new report reveals new info about the futuristic setting of the film, Logan’s status as the story begins, the identity of the child whose hand is seen in the poster, and more. Get the latest Logan details below. (Note: while there don’t seem to be any major spoilers here, those who prefer to know as little as possible may want to steer clear.) Read More »
We haven’t seen much from Hugh Jackman‘s final performance as Wolverine, but we’re not that far off from the film’s release date. In seven months, we’ll see what kind of goodbye director James Mangold and Jackman have in store for the character. Jackman may not be the only one departing from the X-Men universe, as Sir Patrick Stewart says Wolverine 3 is possibly his last time playing Charlies Xavier.
Below, learn more about the potential final Patrick Stewart X-Men performance.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The most recent X-Men movies have somehow managed to dance around the fact that James McAvoy is playing Professor Charles Xavier, a comic book character known for his bald head and wheelchair. X-Men: First Class put McAvoy’s Professor X in that wheelchair, but X-Men: Days of Future Past inexplicably took him out of it for most of the movie before putting him back in it. Now, X-Men: Apocalypse looks to finish the job by finally stripping McAvoy of his shaggy locks.
The trailers for the film have already shown us the young Professor X sitting in his wheelchair, shiny head gleaming, but footage exists of James McAvoy actually shaving his head and it’s far more entertaining than you’d expect.

There’s being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and then there’s finding yourself in the middle of a group of neo-Nazis who will stop at anything to cover up a murder. That’s exactly what happens in Jeremy Saulnier‘s latest thriller Green Room when a punk rock band sees something they weren’t supposed to after playing a shady stop on a little cross country tour.
Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) are among the bandmates while Imogen Poots (Fright Night) is the concertgoer whose friend has met a grisly fate at the hands of another band member’s violent ways. They all end up stuck in this hell that is meticulously taken care of by Patrick Stewart and his loyal group of skinheads. A new Green Room red band trailer shows just how intense this movie truly is, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Read More »
