Dark Phoenix Trailer Header

Dark Phoenix, the latest installment in the X-Men film franchise, was supposed to be released in November. But the film needed some additional photography and reshoots, and as a result, it pushed the release date to February of next year. Whether or not this was a sign of trouble is unknown. But at least we get to finally see what has become of Simon Kinberg‘s directorial debut.

Fox has dropped the first trailer for Dark Phoenix, which is based on the story arc of the same name which sees Jean Grey, one of the most powerful members of the X-Men, fuse with a cosmic entity who has the power to destroy the entire galaxy. Check out the trailer and a new poster below.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins Kung Fury

Hot off Michael Fassbender‘s casting in Kung Fury, comes the sequel’s latest, and probably craziest, addition. A new report says actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will be joining Fassbender and David Hasselhoff. But it’s who Schwarzenegger will be playing that should get the most laughs. Those same reports say he will be the President of the United States of America. More on the story here below.

Michael Fassbender Set To Star In Full-Length Sequel To ‘Kung Fury’

Kung Fury

Four years ago now we found out about an insane sounding short film titled Kung Fury, which was seeking to raise money via a Kickstarter crowdfunded campaign. Nearly 18,000 backers ended up pledging over $630,000 to the project, which was $430,000 more than the filmmakers behind the short were seeking.

The amount raised gives you a great idea of how popular the over-the-top project was, and that popularity carried over to the ridiculously entertaining final product. Now the next step in the journey of Kung Fury, a feature-length sequel, has added a star as Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Steve Jobs, Prometheus) has joined the film.

Michael Fassbender The Snowman trailer

The Snowman
Director: Tomas Alfredson
Screenwriter: Hossein Amini, Peter Straughan
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, Toby Jones, David Dencik, James D’Arcy, J.K. Simmons
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 119 Minutes
Release Date: October 20, 2017

A good mystery thriller has us on the edge of our seats and has us convinced we know who the criminal is at some point in the movie only to realize it wasn’t who we thought it was. It builds upon itself with great characters giving more than terrific performances. And it has a story that keeps us engaged for the entire duration.

But Tomas Alfredson‘s adaptation of Jo Nesbø‘s The Snowman is anything but the aforementioned qualities. It is sporadic, horribly paced, and lacks any sort of structure. Instead, we are given a fairly predictable film that feels like it was just piled on top of each other trying to pass itself off as a decent movie. My full review below.

Jessica Chastain

The X-Men saga films are never short on star power. From Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart to Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence, these films have found a way to rope in some very high-profile names into their superhero universe. And now you can add Jessica Chastain to that list. Reports are saying that the Academy Award-nominated actress is currently in negotiations to play the lead villain in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Movie Review: Alien: Covenant

Alien Covenant poster

Alien: Covenant
Director: Ridley Scott
Screenwriter: John Logan and Dante Harper
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Demián Bichir
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 122 Minutes
Release Date: May 19, 2017

The truth is that while I liked Alien: Covenant, I didn’t love it. What’s tragic, aside for the future the prequel sets humanity up for, is that all it would have taken to make the film phenomenal was some small tweaks and changes.

Alien: Covenant lacks the same emotional heights sci-fi fans associate with Ridley Scott’s film of 1979 or James Cameron’s 1986 sequel, though it’s not without merit. Chief among the complaints is that the new film seems to sit on the franchise’s laurels rather than push it forward in the way Casino Royale did for James Bond or Logan did for X-Men. It’s been 38 years since the original Alien thriller, but this movie lacks some of the lauded learnings and innovations of modern science fiction cinema.

Introducing the ALIEN: COVENANT Crew

20th Century Fox has released a prologue to Ridley Scott‘s latest entry in the Alien franchise, titled Alien: Covenant.

The prologue is called “Last Supper,” and it runs a little under five minutes in length. It follows the crew of the Covenant we saw in a recent image, including Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, and Demián Bichir, letting loose and enjoying their last meal together before going into cryosleep on their way to colonize a far away planet.
