This New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Trailer Will Blow You Away
I must say that I absolutely love this trailer, and I imagine that it will absolutely sell anybody on the movie that’s not already sold. From the thumping chords of Led Zeppelin’s "Kashmir," to the almost heist-like set-up of the plot, this new preview gives us a much better idea of what X-Men: Days of Future Past will be like, and it looks incredible. I couldn’t be more excited that Bryan Singer is back making X-Men movies.
The Wolf Of Wall Street Honest Trailer Is Effing Brilliant
A lot of people know just what made “The Wolf of Wall Street” a memorable, if not entertaining movie experience. Most of all the folks at Screen Junkies seem to understand what makes the movie work, as they've displayed in their latest Honest Trailer. Be prepared for a lot of blurring, bleeping, and jabs at a certain recent award winner. It's time to roast this baby with only the delicate precision and pin point accuracy it deserves!
This Week In Home Entertainment: Ride Along, Secret Life Of Walter Mitty And More
Comedian and actor Kevin Hart went from bit player to leading man over the last several months, starring in both Ride Along and About Last Night in a relatively short period of time. It’s the former that has made its way onto Blu-ray and DVD this week, telling a sort-of buddy cop story about a mysterious crime boss and cleaning up the streets of Atlanta.
Female Screenwriters Fare Better In Television Than Film.
In 2009, women accounted for 17 percent of the writer’s employed in the film portion of the WGA. In 2012, that number fell to 15 percent, with women losing $.05 per dollar to their male counterparts in the same period of time. So for every dollar a male screenwriter was paid in 2009, a female screenwriter was being paid $.82 out of that same dollar.
Limited Edition Blu-ray For Documentary 'The Final Member' Comes With A Real Bull Penis
Believe it or not, there is a museum in Iceland that is entirely dedicated penises. Founded in 1974, the Icelandic Phallological Museum is home to over 280 specimens collected from every different kind of creature you can think of. Except for one: human. Even stranger, this open spot generated a race of sorts between two men who wished to be immortalized forever as the representation of the human penis in the museum.

Michael Bay's Friday The 13th Reboot Looking At V/H/S Director
Friday The 13th is getting rebooted. Again. You can thank (or rage at) Michael Bay, whose Platinum Dunes is resurrecting the slasher franchise for Paramount Pictures. While we've known about this project since last November, the latest development is that Bay and his fellow producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have nearly wrangled one of the directors of the horror anthology V/H/S to take the film's helm.
Pixar Featurette Highlights Some Of The Studio's Best Easter Eggs
Thanks to the recent release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we've spent the last few weeks talking about how good Marvel Studios is as sprinkling little Easter Eggs into their films. But let's not forget: Pixar has been doing similar brilliant work in the same regard for the last 19 years - a.k.a. since they began making feature films.
Paul Walker's Brothers Will Help James Wan Finish Fast & Furious 7
Wan is racing to meet an April 10, 2015 release date. I believe that Fast fans will give the sequel the benefit of the doubt when it comes to closing the loop that is Brian’s saga. I like the fact that they are using Walker’s brothers. There’s real symmetry in that.
No One Bothered Telling James Franco He's In Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Much like how his character didn’t mean to be the bearer of the apocalypse, Mr. Franco also apparently didn’t mean to play a cameo role in upcoming sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Yet according to EW, he’s doing just that… whether he knows it or not.
Spider-Man Producer Warns Fans Not To Expect The Traditional Sinister Six
Introduced in 1964, the first iteration of the Sinister Six consisted of such villains as Mysterio, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman. Sam Raimi made good use of Sandman in his Spider-Man 3, though I don’t see the character coming into Webb’s new universe.
Leonardo DiCaprio Signs Up For Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's The Renevant
Now that he’s done dancing at Coachella, Leonardo DiCaprio can get back to the business of acting. He appears to have circled his next gig, agreeing in principle to a September shoot for the gritty thriller The Revenant, the next drama from director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Magic Mike XXL Sets July 2015 Release Date
Magic Mike XXL's premiere date has been set. It looks like Warner Bros. is looking to get the anticipated followup into theaters on July 3, 2015, which means fans of Channing Tatum and his moves will be waiting more than a year for Magic Mike 2, the sequel which follows up on Steven Soderbergh's 2012 feature.
Rick Santorum's EchoLight Films Releasing Movies Exclusively To Churches
A quick peek at EchoLight's website reveals a slate of films starring the likes of Bruce Davison, Samantha Barks, Brian Dennehey, Corbin Bersen, Megyn Price and Dean Cain. Obviously these aren't mainstream superstars, but in the small towns where attending church is just as popular an activity as going to the mall, they're just as big as Tom Cruise.
Superhero State Of The Union: Are These Franchises Too Big To Fail?
The coming years have a full 10 (!) more superhero films scheduled for release, with countless others to follow, just waiting for a schedule space to clear up. But what happens if these films don't work? What happens if the fans don't want to see certain characters again and again?
