Ever have one of those dreams where you're totally macking on this hot mutant, only then it turns out she's dead, mainly because you killed her with your huge metal claws, and then you wake up and it's all some sort of uncomfortable metaphor?
Here's a video that, if anything, will make you realize just how often Hugh Jackman is forced to make the "I'm menacingly extracting my claws!" movement with his arms during production of every "X-Men" or "Wolverine" movie (in which the "give character large adamantium claws" button on Final Cut is used liberally in post).
That's because our good, clever buddies at FilmDrunk took the new "The Wolverine" trailer and replaced every "SHAWINNNGGG" (copyright "Wayne's World," 1992) sound that is made every time Wolverine's claws come out... with the sound of a slide whistle. And to be completely honest, we can't say it's any better or worse than before, it's just more noticeable. And hilarious. Get More »
Summer movie season is once again upon us, as the likes of "Iron Man 3," "The Wolverine" and "Pacific Rim" are set to blow us through the back wall of the theater with their huge action sequences, top-notch special effects and occasional witty quips.
But blockbusters aren't the only kind of movies at the multiplex this summer; they share space alongside quieter, more critically acclaimed fare. And let's face it — inside every loud, attention-grabbing, big-budget action flick or raucous all-star comedy, there's a sensitive, modest indie just waiting to get out. Right?
With that in mind, we've once again reinvented 10 summer blockbusters as smaller, less explosion-heavy films. After all, it's not such a huge leap to see "Fast & Furious 6" as a twee road trip movie about a non-traditional family or "Man of Steel" as the ultimate tale of an outsider wandering the Earth in search of identity and purpose.
When the first trailers for "Iron Man 3" hit the interwebs a few months ago, one thing jumped out at fans right away: The debut of Iron Patriot, which is basically a suit of Iron Man armor painted to look like the American flag. Seriously, just when you thought Iron Man couldn't get any cooler, this thing comes along, smashing evil ideologies with the fist of superhero righteousness. U-S-A! U-S-A! Get More »
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »
Yesterday, with much fanfare, we proudly presented the first teaser clip for the upcoming superhero blockbuster "The Wolverine."

Well, if you thought that was cool, then buckle up, because now thanks to YouTube, we've got the entire full-length international trailer for you.
And if you thought the first "Wolverine" tease was grim n' gritty, wait until you get a load of this new angst. Get More »
Wolverine is the best there is at what he does, but what he does isn't very nice. Unless, of course, you're talking about standing around and looking really buff and enigmatic and broodingly hot. Then in that case, what Wolverine does is actually kind of nice after all.
At least, that was our feeling after getting a peek at the brand new still photo of Hugh Jackman's tortured superhero in "The Wolverine." Get More »
"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is 2013's inaugural sequel in a year chock full of them (29 in all). With this much franchise volume in one year, it's good to keep some perspective in terms of which series we're primed for ... and which ones shouldn't have had a first movie to begin with.
From the bad to the rad, here's our rundown of all the follow-ups fans have been clamoring for — or haven't, as the case may be. Prioritize your sequel viewing, people. Get More »
Man, 2012 was a pretty darn good year for films, right? "The Avengers," "Lincoln," "The Hunger Games," "Silver Linings Playbook," seriously, we could go on and on, as this past year has been one of the best in recent memory.
And that has us even more amped up to see what Hollywood does for an encore. Sure, 2013 has some pretty big shoes to fill, but there are always news movies to see, new adventures to experience, new stars to meet and new pop culture obsessions waiting to be born.
So with that in mind, we've put together our list of the top 50 Movies We’re All About in 2013. Because last year is just so last year. Get More »
