IMDb IMDb

Given the seemingly endless parade of stars who have already signed on to appear in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," such as Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page and Anna Paquin among many, many others, you might think there's no room left for any new additions.

But you'd be wrong, because according to The Wrap director Bryan Singer has added yet another new mutant to the mix, this time in the form of up-and-coming Australian actor Josh Helman.

What, is the entire movie going to just be crowd scenes? Get More »

Movie Trailers, Movies Blog

The first action-packed "The Wolverine" teaser trailer is here, and the claws have most definitely come out.

"What they did to me can't be undone," Hugh Jackman, as Wolverine, growls.

"Don't be so sure," comes the reply.

Intriguing! Every time we've been injected with something down to our bones, we've found it to be pretty much irreversible.

In this first look at the "X-Men"-universe sequel for Jackman's adamantine-spiked mutant Wolverine, née Logan, we're heading to the far east. Set after the events of Bryan Singer's "X-Men" trilogy and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "The Wolverine" takes place in modern-day Japan, where our brooding hero is taking some time to think, and learning how to wield a samurai sword like a champ to boot.

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.

Magneto is going to marry Professor X, ya'll.

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 »

Our 15 Favorite Lady Villains in Movies

Universal

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.

GALLERY: Guys Holding Their Balls (in Movies)

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.

Studios Declare Truce In Jennifer Lawrence Tug of War

Fox

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 »

GALLERY: Our 15 Favorite Women in Black

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."
