Take the coolest thing you could ever imagine happening in the history of nerdery and multiply it by a hundred. No, make that a thousand ... Done? Good. Whatever you just came up with there, it's not even half as awesome as this, so brace yourselves.
No, we're not talking about some gnarly new "X-Men: Days of Future Past" plot detail — although that could be an interesting direction for the franchise — this'll be an actual real-life wedding ceremony.
Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show this weekend, Sir Ian McKellen revealed that he'll be serving as an officiant for Patrick Stewart's upcoming wedding ceremony with thirty-five-year-old songstress Sunny Ozell. Get More »

Director Bryan Singer is taking the title of his latest "X-Men" film, "Days of Future Past," very literally.
First he signed up both Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart to reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X from the original "X-Men" trilogy. And now he's returning to the future past again, as, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Singer is currently in negotiations to bring Hugh Jackman back as Wolverine as well.
Sorry, "Looper," but the award for the best use of time travel in film just got claimed. Get More »

Everyone loves a bad boy. The snarling mustache twirlers get all of the fame and fortune -- the No. 1 spot on movie-geek lists, the Halloween costumes, the cool quotes -- and none of them have to worry about being called a witch.
But here at NextMovie, we're all about the bad girls. We love a lady who isn't afraid to embrace her nasty side in order to get what she wants.
In honor of "Savages" and Salma Hayek's role as a brutal drug cartel leader, we've gathered up the coolest and cruelest women to grace the silver screen. We're a little worried about ranking them, because if there's one thing we know about these vicious villainesses, it's that they don't like competition. But we did. Now, you read. We'll run.

Guys really love their balls. They love holding them, whacking them and chasing them with glee. And sometimes, men just like to gaze at their balls fondly. Yes, it's hard to get between a dude and a ball if his mind's set on playing with it.
A recently released photo of Michael Fassbender from the highly anticipated sci-fi epic "Prometheus" got us in the mood to explore this (totally wholesome and impossible to misconstrue) subject matter. So to keep you well-rounded on the topic, here's some great moments between man and man's true best friend.
Quick, who would win in a fight: Mystique from the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants or Katniss Everdeen?
That's the kind of question that has brought fanboys to blows at Comic-Con before, but for the last month it has also been the subject of a high-stakes battle between Fox and Lionsgate, as both studios need Jennifer Lawrence for their next movie. Luckily for everybody, though, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox will hold off shooting their next "X-Men" sequel until January, allowing Lawrence to star in "Catching Fire" as planned.
Which is a good thing, because in a fight between Mystique and Katniss, there's really only one loser: The fans. Get More »
In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.
The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.
As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."
Those waiting for NBC to announce the return of "Community" will have to hang tough while executives figure out when to air the remaining episodes and if the college-themed comedy will drop out of their primetime lineup.
That's Hawthorne (Chevy Chase) instead of Ian McKellan as Magneto, Winger (Joel McHale) lookin' buff as Cyclops with Perry (Gillian Jacobs) in full Phoenix regalia by his side. Storm, Nightcrawler, and Professor X are there, and Donald Glover can totally get over not being Spider-Man now that he's replaced Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Get More »
