When it comes to modern comic book movies, it has become standard to include post-credits scenes that tease big events to come in the future of the franchise.

The new film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features a large number of sequences where hordes of the undead rush in to get a helping of brains, but it’s really not an overly gore-y film.

This weekend, audiences will be able to watch Josh Brolin star in the brand new film from Joel and Ethan Coen… but that’s hardly a first-time event.

Come 2018, it’s predicted that every known hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will join together in a battle against Thanos – a galactic emperor working to acquire the abilities of a god with the help of the six Infinity Stones.
At this stage in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there is arguably no character more influential than Thanos. First played by Josh Brolin in Guardians of the Galaxy, the giant purple alien’s hunt for all of the Infinity Stones has had an effect on everything we’ve seen from the franchise so far, and he will serve as the central villain in the Phase Three two-part capstone.
Before he moved behind the camera to make movies like Igby Goes Down and the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Burr Steers was actually an actor in Hollywood… and there’s a very good chance you vividly remember one of his scenes.

The energy from Lana Condor is infectious. She is, in many ways, the first actress to really play the character on screen, though this Jubilee will be slightly different from what you remember in the comics.
With more Morlocks popping up in the X-Men cinematic universe, could this underground-dwelling people be the focus of a future film? We asked producer Hutch Parker on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, and though he kept it vague, he says it’s a possibility.
Thanks to Quicksilver’s big moment, in which he literally ran circles around Pentagon security, the character became the MVP of X-Men: Days of Future Past. With the apocalyptic follow-up coming out in a couple of months, you can bet he has another scene-stealer.

With the upcoming animated feature Zootopia, the folks at Walt Disney Animation Pictures have built a giant and diverse world filled with all kinds of anthropomorphic animals.

Following the release of Ride Along in 2014, the key players didn’t waste any time getting to work on a sequel. With the original comedy being a January hit, not even a full year went by before production began on Ride Along 2.

In case you missed the flurry of activity that happens on Oscar morning, J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens secured five nominations for this year’s Academy Awards, including the team’s work in the visual effects field.
