Dark Phoenix Clip

This week, the X-Men franchise as we know it is coming to an end. Dark Phoenix will be the final installment of the comic book movie series that started all the way back in 2000. While the franchise was essentially rebooted in 2011 with X-Men: First Class, it ended up getting a deeper connection to the original trilogy of movies thanks to X-Men: Days of Future Past, making the original X-Men and the new, younger mutants intertwined in a confusing timeline of superhero spectacle.

With one last push to get audiences to witness the end of the X-Men on the big screen, a new Dark Phoenix clip gives us ample tension between Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his surrogate sister Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) after their space mission to help NASA astronauts almost took a deadly turn. Plus, a new featurette leans heavy on nostalgia by having the cast of the movie reflect on their experience with the original X-Men movies and their work on the more recent films. Read More »

funan featurette

When approaching horrific historical events like the rise of the violent Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, any filmmaker has to tread carefully.

/Film is debuting an exclusive Funan clip featuring Do speaking about how his family’s experiences informed the acclaimed animated film. Watch the Funan featurette below.
