In the final stretch of 'X-Men: First Class,' Nicholas Hoult's Hank McCoy ended up accelerating his powerful mutation, transforming him into the hairy blue monster known to comic book fans as Beast. That's why it was so odd when Hoult started popping up in set pictures and in trailers for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in his human form with nary a single blue fur to be found. If you're big ol' nerds like us and want to know why this is the case, know that the film does offer an explanation ... and it feels awfully familiar.
We feel bad for everyone involved with the upcoming remake of 'The Raid.' Then again, they brought this uphill battle on themselves when they set out to make an American version of the wildest, craziest and most giddily violent action movie of the past decade. We feel especially bad for Patrick Hughes, who is currently in negotiations to direct the westernized version.
After months of rumors and auditions from seemingly every up-and-coming actor in Hollywood, the rebooted 'Terminator 5,' officially titled 'Terminator: Genesis,' finally found its Kyle Reese. Australian actor Jai Courtney landed the role, which will see him appearing alongside franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Game of Thrones' breakout Emilia Clarke.
'Ride Along' is still in theaters and still raking in the big bucks at the box office, but 'Ride Along 2' is already in the works. To be more specific, the sequel is eyeing a summer shoot and a 2015 release date, making this one of the fastest turnarounds for a sequel we've ever seen.
When 'RoboCop' got pushed from an August 2013 release date to February 2014, everyone assumed it would open stronger when far away from the busy summer months. If this is the better of the two options, then we can't even imagine how poorly it would have opened in the warmer months. The remake of the 1987 classic is definitely not a disaster, but it most certainly underperformed.
It's been a rough decade for John Travolta, and his self-destructive slide looks to continue now that he's signed on to voice the lead character in a Gummy Bears movie. For that reason, we have a hard time believing that he's spoken to the James Bond franchise producers about playing a villain in a future film, but according to a recent interview, he claims that such meetings have occurred and have been fruitful.
'Noah' is less than a month away from hitting theaters and we still have no idea what to make of this thing. On one hand, almost every trailer has looked like a complete and total mess. On the other hand, this is the latest effort from Darren Aronofsky, a filmmaker whose incredible previous work has earned him the benefit of the doubt here. The latest material from the film only adds to our bafflement -- two new character posters solidify our worst fears, but the cover of the graphic novel adaptation of the film gets us interested all over again.
There are good days, there are bad days, and then there are days when you confuse Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne and find yourself at the mercy of an actor whose voice can make even the strongest man whimper in terror. This sounds like a joke, but it actually happened on live television, and since this is the internet, it will never go away and the news anchor who made the tragic error will never live it down.
Like any superhero worth his salt, Captain America has his fair share of unique allies and enemies, and 'Captain America 2' is bringing a whole bunch of them to the big screen for the first time. We've already seen character posters for the Cap, Black Widow and Nick Fury, but the latest one-sheets highlight figures who are making their grand entrances into the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Anthony Mackie's Falcon and Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier.
