20th Century Fox has a lot of irons in the fire when it comes to their comic book movies. Deadpool 2 is on the way, following in the surprisingly successful footsteps of the first film, and there’s also New Mutants from director Josh Boone introducing a new team of young mutants to audiences. Beyond that, there’s the hope of a Deadpool and Wolverine crossover to follow Logan at some point. But what about the primary X-Men franchise?
Not too long ago, there was talk of some trouble behind the scenes at 20th Century Fox and rumors that there might be a soft reboot of the primary X-Men franchise. We still don’t know what’s happening on that front. But it appears that the title for the next sequel in the X-Men film series has been revealed, and it corroborates some previous details we had heard about the project.

Before we actually deal with the news at hand, let me just lead by saying that I use IMDb every single day and find it to be one of the most valuable resources on the internet. I am on there dozens of times a day, to double check the cast and crew of a movie I’m writing about or to read random trivia out loud to fill awkward silences at bad parties. I love you, Internet Movie Database. You are wonderful.
But you’re also a little drunk, as evidenced by your top 10 movies of 2016.

Even though it feels like ages ago, X-Men: Apocalypse actually hit theaters this past summer. It was just so forgettable that it’s hard to believe this was a movie we just saw a few months ago, That’s coming from someone who had an immense amount of fun watching it while still recognizing the overwhelming number of flaws in the sequel.
However, there were plenty of X-Men fans who just couldn’t get past how lame of a villain Apocalypse was, how boring the story turned out to be, and why none of the X-Men had aged a day despite being a decade later than X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now an X-Men Apocalypse Honest Trailer really digs into what makes this sequel bad, and it doesn’t hold back anything. Read More »

When you’re dealing with the end of the world, things can get deadly serious. But as you will see on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, even in the face of grave danger, the cast makes plenty of time to get wacky. Bloopers are always an amusing part of the filmmaking process, but when then outtakes feature characters in full superhero wardrobe, they’re just that much more entertaining.
If you ever wanted to see Oscar Isaac dance in the creaky Apocalypse suit, Michael Fassbender flirt with James McAvoy, or Jennifer Lawrence elbow someone in the face, you can see all that and more in the X-Men Apocalypse bloopers reel after the jump. Read More »
Back before X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, 20th Century Fox delivered a retro commercial for Xavier’s School for the Gifted, looking like it was ripped straight off a VHS tape. The video featured Jubilee, and she probably got just as much screen time there as she did in the final movie despite being all over the marketing materials leading up to the movie. Now Xavier’s School for the Gifted gets one more retro push with another viral video arriving just in time to promote the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse on home video.

In a summer filled with high profile duds, X-Men: Apocalypse reigns supreme. At least Independence Day: Resurgence was audacious and insane and totally bonkers. At least Suicide Squad was bad in ways that generate great conversations. Bryan Singer’s fourth X-Men movie, and the eighth film in the franchise overall, is the kind of movie that takes two and a half hours of your time and exits your brain while you’re still watching it. It’s the kind of bad movie that doesn’t even have the decency to leave an impact.
Although the Blu-ray and DVD for X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t arrive until next month, a deleted scene from the film has arrived online and it’s…well, it’s interesting. I wouldn’t call it a good scene, but it’s the kind of weirdness that the final cut desperately needs.

The summer movie season is over and you know what that means – it’s time to hand out pointless imaginary awards to the best, worst, and weirdest films of the past four months!
Welcome to the 2016 Summer Blockbuster Awards, which is like the Oscars if the Oscars only covered a specific release window, were decided by one person, and were also really dumb. Here’s how this works: I have created 24 categories, from “Best Performance” to “Movie Most in Need of a Hug” and have awarded one winner and one runner-up. At the name of these awards imply, the focus here is on wide releases that arrived between May and August of this year. So while you really should go out of your way to see indie gems like Swiss Army Man and Don’t Think Twice, they won’t be the focus here. Got it? Good. Let’s just dive right in.
Be warned there are spoilers ahead for some of this summer’s films.
