Bryan Singer Talks Us Through the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Trailer

The trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" dropped earlier this week, and while it surely excited fans of the previous films and the comics, it came across as a bit confusing for those that didn't already know what was going to be happening. So, our good friends over at MTV News got director Bryan Singer on the phone to answer some of the biggest questions. Get More »

Wolverine as Disney Princesses Is Disturbingly Awesome

Squigglenaut on Tumblr Squigglenaut on Tumblr

When it comes to Disney characters, we are always in the market for weirdly amazing transformations. Whether it's a Grumpy Cat meme collision with the House of Mouse or the line-up of pretty ladies getting slothified and given historically accurate wardrobing or even the animated villains getting a Broadway-esque spotlight, we are soooooo in. Always.

So, naturally, when we discovered that a gaggle of web artists are now making Wolverine as Disney Princesses a thing, we just had to share. Get More »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Trailer: Mutant Time Travel

Mutants can travel through time and manipulate the past now. Take that, regular humans!

That's the brand new layer Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" installment intends to add to the "X" universe  this go-round, and if this first trailer for the pic is any indication it's going to be a deep and dramatic little effort indeed. Get More »

Reboot Culture: A Visual History of Movie Reboots

carrie300x220 MGM

Over the last few years, we've seen a ton of movie reboots coming out of Hollywood. Many hardcore fans groan in protest when a new one gets announced, but there's always enough curiosity that there's no reason to stop making them. With "Carrie" hitting theaters today and new "Godzilla" and "Robocop" films still in the works, it certainly doesn't seem like we'll see any less of them going forward. The team over at The Verge has put together a particularly awesome infographic that details the trends in reboot culture and what properties we could be seeing brand new on the big screen in the near future.

The most interesting thing that's pointed out here is that the reboots seem to be coming in cycles. Comic book film franchises, much like their source material, seem to reboot quicker than almost anything else. But, as the years have gone on, studios have had to go further and further back to find properties to relaunch. "Carrie" is a prime example, with this reboot coming nearly 40 years after the original.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Already Trying to Go Viral

The movie may not be set for release for nearly another year yet, but hell if those mutants ain't trying to go viral already.

On the one hand, this "X-Men: Days of Future Past" viral campaign vid isn't doing much to stave off those inevitable "Terminator" plot comparisons — c'mon, time travel and evil robots made by a giant, super-powerful corporation? Too easy. But on the other, the faux commercial is intriguing enough, and coupled with the little Trask Industries website 20th Century Fox launched for the film around Comic-Con, a few nit-pitcky plot details are discernible about this big Sentinel program everybody's been going on about.

Supercut: Boy, Wolverine Sure Does Scream A Lot

As an actor, when you play the same character approximately 37,653 times (margin of error +/- 37,648), you're bound to give that character some of the same mannerisms over the course of its movie lifetime.

Hugh Jackman (and each movie's writer and director, I guess) decided that Wolverine likes to scream. A lot. Like, a lot a lot. As compiled by our compadres at Vulture, embedded is a supercut of Wolverine screaming and shouting and hollering and grunting, a 1:17 video of which I could only reach the :54 second mark without having to give my ears a one minute break.

Well, lookie what we have here.

20th Century Fox has dropped (via Entertainment Weekly) two new teaser posters for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" today, and as it turns out, Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellen share more than just a few flirty Prop 8-related chuckles, and though they could not possibly have more different hairstyles, James McAvoy does favor the brow line of his predecessor in Charles Xavier-ness, Patrick Stewart.

Infographic: The X-Men Movie Chronology

The Wolverine Fox

Thirteen years of X-Men movies can make keeping track of plot points pretty complicated. While flashbacks and origin stories often help make for great character development and allow audiences to see many of the mutants beyond simply "the dude who shoots lasers from his eyes" and "the naked blue ex-wife of John Stamos," it's still a daunting task to try to patch together just what events happened first, as well as where all of these movies fit together within the X-Men continuity.

Hugh Jackman Wants Wolverine to Play with 'The Avengers' Too!

In today's installment of Hugh Jackman keepin' it real, the "Wolverine" star thinks it's high time the current big three among superhero studios — that'd be Warner Bros., Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox — pass around some kinda olive branch and make nice so that he can play with Iron Man and Spider-Man and all the other cool kids, too!

Yup, in a new sit-down with Collider to promote his latest turn as the adamantium-filled fighter, hitting theaters on July 26, Jackman laments all the mine-mine-mine stuff going down between the three comic-to-movie heavyweight champs of the industry right now ... especially since it means he can't flex his "X-Men" claws alongside the likes of "Iron Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man."
