The 'Chappie' poster seems harmless enough, but it really represents a true make-it-or-break-it point for director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley. This one-sheet, which exists simply to introduce the title character of this new science fiction film about a family who "adopts" a robot with ties to the criminal underworld, represents a film that could be the next great exciting genre project ... or the final sign that we all put a little too much faith in the people who made 'District 9.'

Dear Hugh Jackman, you know that 'The Tonight Show' is on television, right? More specifically, it's on live television in front of a studio audience, which means hundreds of people are watching the show in person, with millions more watching at home. In short, it's a very bad place to decide to cheat at a game, particularly if that game involves standing on an oversized pool table in front of said audience.

For better or worse, the current status of the superhero movie can be tracked back to one film. One modestly budgeted production designed the template and set the tone for a film movement that still hasn't peaked. Some remember it fondly. Some think it got more wrong than it did right. But there's no denying it: Bryan Singer's 'X-Men' is undoubtedly one of the most important and influential films of the past two decades.

With Memorial Day glimmering on the horizon like a big, shiny, pre-summer gift, 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is already celebrating the great American holiday. And what better way to celebrate such a holiday than to convince beloved star of stage and screen, Hugh Jackman (who, yes, he is Australian, but is adored by all nationalities), to nearly die while riding a cooler onscreen?

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' Review: A Time Travel Movie That Somehow Makes Sense

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.

Writer-Producer Simon Kinberg on 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' and Tearing Down 'The Last Stand'

EDIT

It's surprising to listen to a writer almost gleefully explain how he negated his past work, and such is the case with Simon Kinberg, who wrote and produced the time travel storyline of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' In 'Days of Future Past,' Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness is sent back to his younger, 1973 self, in an effort to prevent the mutant-killing Sentinels from ever being created. And, as time travel movies are wont to do, they can change what has come before. And one of those movies that came before, 'X-Men': The Last Stand,' was co-written by Kinberg.
There are some minor, non-specific spoilers in the below exchange with Kinberg (some much more specific ones will publish after the film's release), but he does dive into the psyche of a screenwriter who just may be undoing some of his own work.
