Quibi, the streaming service specializing in short-form content, is arriving next month, and none of us know what to make of it yet. The concept of “quick bite” content that you stream on your phone will likely appeal to some and horrify others. Then there’s the quality of that content – there are a lot of weird programs headed to the service. Stuff like Murder House Flip, which is exactly what it sounds like, and Dishmantled, a cooking show where chefs get shot in the face with food. But then there’s more traditional stuff, like Survive – a series that stars Sophie Turner. The Game of Thrones vet plays a suicidal woman who survives a plane crash, and then has to fight her way through the wilderness with the only other survivor, played by Corey Hawkins. Watch the Survive trailer below.

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 »

Now that 20th Century Fox has been bought by Disney, the Marvel Comics mutants known as the X-Men are back home at Marvel Studios. But before that, the studio will finish the initial series nearly 20 years later with the final installment of the franchise: Dark Phoenix. The only problem is that it’s retelling a story that we’ve already heard before, and much like the recent reboot of Hellboy, it doesn’t seem to be doing much to improve it in any way. Watch the new Dark Phoenix trailer below. Read More »
