We've had an 'Unexpected Journey' and seen the 'Desolation of Smaug,' and now this year Peter Jackson brings us the conclusion of the trilogy with 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.' With six months still left ahead before we catch up with Bilbo and friends, it's about time we get our first look at the final chapter in their story.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' claimed the box office after one weekend in theaters with a cast that includes more mutants than you can throw a Sentinel at, and it's one of the best 'X-Men' films to date. Because we know you're wondering when you can bring this puppy home, we've got the first look at the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Deluxe Blu-ray Edition!
Even though the story behind ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has been around for 33 years now, the idea of a superhero movie meshed with a movie about time travel seems, let’s say … daunting. Especially for a superhero franchise like X-Men, which is known for having a lot of superheroes.
It’s just that it’s hard enough to make a big-budget superhero movie make sense (as the so very recent ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ taught us) -- and adding the cinematic equivalent of pai gow (at least, nothing confuses me more than pai gow) to this whole equation seemed like kind of a bad idea. I mean, how many time travel movies make sense in the first place, beyond the ‘Back to the Futures’ and the ‘Loopers’ and the ‘Primers’ of the word? And none of those movies have dozens and dozens of mutants to keep track of their whereabouts.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has a lot of moving parts -- it's based on a comic book, it combines both casts of the original 'X-Men' movie trilogy and that of 'First Class,' and there's some pretty unique time traveling going on -- so it's understandable if those unfamiliar with the franchise or the story get a bit lost. That's where we come in! We give you everything you need to know about 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in just 60 seconds.
There's a rich tradition among the superhero movie elite of studios offering up the all the goods (and by goods we mean footage) before their movies even hit theaters. (See 'Captain America 2' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.') People wanna try before they buy, right? The same motto seems to apply to 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' which released even more photos, along with the latest magazine covers for the latest Total Film issue.
Sure, Seth Meyers gets a few good-natured digs in before Ian McKellen flips the script and quite literally takes over his own 'Late Night,' but that doesn't mean that anyone was having a bad time on the show last night. Meyers, finishing up his first week as 'Late Night' host, welcomed everyone's favorite pair of best friends -- McKellen and Patrick Stewart -- and the results were both charming and quite funny.
The main thrust of the advertising campaign for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is that the film will contain characters from both the original 'X-Men' franchise and prequel film 'X-Men: First Class,' making this one of the biggest superhero movies ever made. Although the trailer and previous images have given us looks at this enormous ensemble of black leather-clad mutant warriors, the film's official site revealed a series of character portraits, giving us our best look at 17 of the characters.
A few days ago 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' delighted future audiences with news that Seth Meyers' former 'SNL' co-star Fred Armisen had signed on to lead the house band, and now it seems the new 'Late Night' has another beloved 'SNL' staple headed its way. Not only can we expect Bill Hader's revered "Stefon" to make appearances, but the first week's rounds of guests include everyone from Amy Poehler to Kanye West, Lena Dunham, Ian McKellen and more!
