American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare
Season 6 Episode 3 “Chapter 3”

Starring Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Chaz Bono, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Cuba Gooding Jr.
FX Network
Air date: Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 10pm

Last week on American Horror Story, we learned more of the story that beset the Miller family, Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland) portrayed in re-enactments by Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. It wasn’t enough that Shelby was attacked by who she thought were locals trying to scare them out of the colonial North Carolina house. Matt was the target this time, having visions of nurses murdering elderly patients and painting the word MURDER in blood on their walls. It turns out he didn’t imagine everything as they both stumble across a hatch where they find a videotape left by Dr. Elias Cunningham (Denis O’Hare) detailing the house’s history as an old folks home where sister nurses did indeed murder patients. If that wasn’t bad enough, Matt’s addiction riddled sister Lee (Adina Porter/Angela Bassett in re-enactments), who brought her daughter Flora there, where the young girl promptly made friends with a psychotic ghost who threatened to kill everyone, and then went missing.

Starring Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Chaz Bono, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Cuba Gooding Jr.

Last week, we discovered the top secret theme of Season 6 of American Horror StoryMy Roanoke Nightmare. The infamous first colony that disappeared hundreds of years ago is the new home to Shelby and Matt Miller. The show is different from prior seasons in that it’s done “Unsolved Mysteries” style with the “real” Shelby (Lily Rabe) and “real” Matt (Andre Holland) narrating their experiences to the camera, while we watch actors in a re-enactment, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. After a big city scare, The Millers retreat to Matt’s home state, and buy a huge colonial in Roanoke, NC. They instantly become targets for the locals who attack Shelby while Matt is away on a work trip. There also, of course, is a mysterious force lurking in the woods around the house. When Shelby finally takes off, she veers off the road and ends up in the middle of the woods witness to a bizarre cult.

Spoilers below for this week’s AHS.

DF-08349_08350_R Jennifer Lawrence as Raven / Mystique and Evan Peters as Peter / Quicksilver in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.

X-Men: Apocalypse
Director: Bryan Singer
Screenwriter: Simon Kinberg
Cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Hugh Jackman
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 147 Minutes
Release Date: May 27, 2016

“Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.”

If there’s one thing director Bryan Singer achieves with X-Men: Apocalypse, it’s channeling the excess and indulgence of the 1980s. The ninth installment in the X-Men series has too much of everything, including thinly written characters, stale end-of-the-world scenarios, and overblown CGI annihilation.

X-Men: Apocalypse - Four Horseman

Fox has released the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Directed by Bryan Singer (who has directed four of the six X-Men films), the film stars James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawerence as the mutant superheroes who must lead the gifted young students into battle against the titular villain (Oscar Isaac), who some claim to be a god. And as if fighting the world’s first mutant wasn’t enough of a problem, things get more complicated when Professor X’s (McAvoy) former friend Magneto (Michael Fassbender) allies himself with Apocalypse.

X-Men Apocalypse

The world needs the X-Men, again. Fox has just released the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. Though the title heroes of Marvel have faced many mutant and human threats before, they have never faced one as powerful as the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac). Now, after awakening from a great slumber, Apocalypse has gained the powers of a god, and recruits Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and three other powerful mutants to be his Horseman to help him cleanse the Earth of humans.

So it’s up to Professor Xavier’s (James McAvoy) students to stop them from succeeding. Foes are now allies and former friends believe in the gospel according to Apocalypse. Check out the full trailer below.

X-Men: Apocalypse starring Olivia Munn

FOX doesn’t seem to mind that they cannot play in the Marvel Studios sandbox. As much of a disappointment that is to the fans, there is no denying that the success of the X-Men film franchise has spawned exciting spinoffs like the Wolverine films and the upcoming Deadpool, the latter of which got its own Super Bowl spot tonight.

Now in anticipation for X-Men: Apocalypse summer release, the studio has released a Super Bowl spot for the upcoming X-Men sequel , which you can check out here below.

X-Men Apocalypse Header

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse starring James McAvoy (Victor Frankenstein), Michael Fassbender (Macbeth), and Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), all of whom will reprise their roles as Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, respectively. Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the titular villain. Directed by Bryan Singer, the film marks the end of the First Class Trilogy.

In the film, En Sabah Nur is considered the very first mutant of human civilization. Worshiped as a god, the immortal mutant has a collection of powers that no single mutant can stop. After millennia of slumber, Apocalypse will awaken, disappointed in the state of the world. He recruits four of the most powerful mutants he can find, which includes a demoralized Magneto, to create a new mutant world order. Now, the X-Men must ally themselves with former enemies to stop Apocalypse from succeeding with this plan. Check out the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse here below.

Conan X-Men Comic-Con

Conan has been at San Diego Comic-Con all week and and host Conan O’Brien has been working furiously (and also announced he would do it again next year!). Wednesday night’s guests were Elijah Wood and Chris Hardwick, after a Mad Max: Fury Road intro and some crazy Wolverine auditions. He hosted the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 on Thursday night, and that was a blast. On Friday night, he hosted the ultimate fanboy’s dream: Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, and Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead, and the cast of Game of Thrones.

I think he beat his Friday night guests when Doctor Who and the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse showed up.

Check out all the delicious videos below.

When it was announced that EastEnders star Ben Hardy would be joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, many speculated that he would play the winged-mutant Angel. It made sense considering he looked a lot like Warren Worthington III, but as to if he would play Angel or the transformed Archangel, that was unclear.

Now director Bryan Singer confirms that the actor is indeed playing as Angel, but added that “he’s not a very nice Angel!” More after the jump, including some concept art.
