What can make X-Men better? Time Travel. What makes Time Travel better? Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy’s awkward bromantic relationship. It’s okay, we forgive them. Because this summer, we get the next installment of Marvel’s X-Men legacy.
This installment finds previous stars uniting with current favorites. We have Hugh Jackman (from Scrubs infamy) with James McAvoy, Halle Berry with Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender with, well, who are we kidding. He’s good enough alone. [Click here to read on!]
I love a movie with a great villain. Paul Dano, who you may know from Little Miss Sunshine, Looper, or There Will Be Blood fame, looks like an awesome villain in an intriguing new mystery/thriller entitled, Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gylennhaal, Terrance Howard, and Melissa Leo, which hopes to creep viewers out in theaters this September 20th. The bottom line, at least from what I can glean from the great trailer, is that this is your pretty standard child abduction thriller, except Dano may prove to be the difference maker. Prisoners features a ginormous amount of Academy Award-star power with five nominees, and one winner in Mr. Howard; if Paul Dano can deliver as the villain, then this film may really shine.
I’ll admit, I was skeptical when Hollywood announced a Wolverine-only movie was in the works. After watching the official trailer for The Wolverine however, I am completely amped: it looks awesome. Maybe it’s the ninjas at the end, maybe it looks like Wolverine just got back from ‘Nam with that haircut (or lack thereof), or maybe it’s the dark, ominous tones in the trailer; whatever it is, this trailer does it for me. July 26, you’ll know where I’ll be, and you ain’t getting any of my Junior Mints.
