The summer movie season is officially over and that means its time to wrap up our 2014 Summer Movie Wager. If you are unclear, every year a group of us attempt to predict which films will be the top ten of the summer season. You get points for being as accurate as possible.
Like most summers, 2014 was filled with surprises and familiarity. The biggest surprise? Guardians of the Galaxy. In just four weeks, it outgrossed every other film of the summer including massive hits like Transformers: Age of Extinction, X-Men: Days of the Future Past and more. What wasn’t a surprise? Almost everything else. Of the three contestants (myself, Peter Sciretta and Jeff Cannata) we all got at least 9 of the 10 films in the top ten right. The order was another story and is what finally declared a winner.
Below, check out the final point totals and watch our wrap-up video podcast. Read More »

Before Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past was released and became one of the biggest films of the summer, there was lots of talk about what we wouldn’t see. Scenes with Anna Paquin as Rogue, in particular, were famously cut. But if the film’s $750 million worldwide gross has anything to say, maybe that was the right decision. Still, fans enjoy seeing more from films they love and it seems like 20th Century Fox is happy to oblige.
A few weeks ago, producer Lauren Shuler Donner hinted on Twitter about an extended edition of the movie. Now one of Fox’s executives has suggested it’ll be out next year. Check out Days of Future Past extended edition tweets below. Read More »

Thanks to some revealing concept art, though, we now have an idea of what she could have looked like. Hit the jump to get a peek at her dystopian style — along with some discarded designs for characters we did see, like Iceman, Blink, and Bishop.
