Logan's Run Remake

A remake of the sci-fi classic Logan’s Run has been in the works for over a decade. The project has seen several filmmakers come and go as it has developed over the years, including Bryan Singer (X-Men), Joseph Kosinski (TRON Legacy), and even Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive). Now a a new director has stepped up to the plate, and it’s actually a filmmaker who was attached to write and produce the film back in 2015.

X-Men Dark Phoenix

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is showing no signs of slowing down, the X-Men franchise has been running out of steam. Even though Logan was a huge success, that movie went against the grain of the primary X-Men franchise. Meanwhile, X-Men: Apocalypse was a massive disappointment, and fans have been wondering if producer Simon Kinberg has any tricks left up his sleeve as he steps behind the camera for the first time with the next sequel.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will adapt an iconic storyline from legendary X-Men comics writer Chris Claremont. And no pressure: it’s only one of the most revered arcs in the long history of the mutant series. This will be the second time the film franchise has attempted to bring it to life on the big screen after X-Men: The Last Stand poorly adapted the storyline, but Claremont doesn’t see that as a problem. In fact, he hopes that this will be the X-Men movie that gives the Avengers a run for their money. Read More »

X-Men Apocalypse criticism

These days, filmmakers doing press for an upcoming sequel tend to transform their interviews into an ongoing apology tour for the previous movie. “Yeah, that one stank, but we learned a lot and this one will be better!” has been trotted out enough to feel meaningless at this point. Still, X-Men: Apocalypse was so bad that I can’t help but cling to Simon Kinberg‘s words when the longtime franchise writer/producer (and director of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix) admits that the previous core film in the series flopped on a pure creative level.
