Caliban in Logan

When it comes to the X-Men franchise, this year’s Logan and last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse are completely on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Logan is a much more intimate, grounded character piece while X-Men: Apocalypse other is a loud, bright, hollow tentpole. However, they do have one thing in common: the mutant known as Caliban.

In X-Men: Apocalypse, Caliban is played by Tómas Lemarquis, and he’s seen working as a black market dealer who helps Mystique find Nightcrawler. The film is set in 1983, but 46 years later Caliban is played by Stephen Merchant and he’s a timid recluse living with Logan as one of the last remaining mutants and helping him take care of Professor X. So how is this possible? Logan director James Mangold has an explanation, but you’re not going to like it.

2017 Saturn Awards Nominations

If you’re one of those people who gets frustrated because the Academy Awards don’t nominate the science fiction, fantasy, and horror films you love for Best Picture or any of the other categories, then the Saturn Awards are for you.

The 2017 Saturn Award nominations have just been announced, and not only did Rogue One: A Star Wars Story come out on top with 11 nominations, but all those comic book movies that never had a chance in hell of getting a Best Picture nomination landed a bunch of nods. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and even X-Men: Apocalypse all received nominations.

But this isn’t just a comic book movie celebration, because plenty of other genre films landed nominations too. Star Trek Beyond, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and 10 Cloverfield Lane are just some of the other films that ended up getting nominated for awards, too.

X-Men Apocalypse Sequel

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.

X-Men Apocalypse Honest Trailer

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.

Now an X-Men Apocalypse Honest Trailer really digs into what makes this sequel bad, and it doesn’t hold back anything. Read More »
