    The Issue With X-Men: Days of Future Past

    I got goosebumps at the end of The Wolverine just like most X-Men fans. To see some of the cast reunited is something special in Hollywood. But reality isn’t always kind. The reason the cast of the original X-Men trilogy was back was to simply make another film. Sure, every now and then we get something grand. But in this case, we get a hurried script that benefits from the building of Wolverine over five of the six X-Men films, the past versions of the X-Men characters complete with a stellar cast, and the opportunity to have the originals bring in their own fandom. It’s a trifecta that surely will…

    Sweet (International) Trailer…'X-Men: First Class'

    Hello World, Marc Here: I don’t know about you but X-Men: First Class just looks better and better with everything that gets released. Maybe it was the red herring in the form of the lousy looking cast photo (which was really more of a concept than anything else) that made people doubt it initially. Good thing because usually when you write something off early, it’s very likely to get better with time. Case in point. The initial First Class teaser looked really good, really really surprising and now we have an even sweeter looking “International” trailer (rough quality not withstanding). Have a look for yourselves… It seems things could be…

    Ohhh, Look…60's Inspired 'X-Men: First Class' Title Sequence

    Hey now, would ya look a this! For years, Saul Bass’ work has inspired many imitators but I think we may have a new heir to the throne. Whoever created this has a future in film, advertising, you name it. Since Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men prequel is based in the 60’s, this artist (read: gifted genius) has created a fan-made “retro” intro for the film that is just swanky. “Classy baby” is about all I can say for now. Have a look! So while I’m already suped excited for this throw-back take on the Uncanny X-Men, this and the retro inspired magazne covers have been enough so send me into a frenzy.…

    Sweet Teaser…'X-Men: First Class'

    Yesterday we saw this mesmerizingly bold new X-Men emblem (below) and today we have the first official trailer. Quite uncanny, wouldn’t you say? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. Well this is more of a teaser than anything else but still more than an announcement. Funny how there are so many categories for something as brief as a movie trailer. Oh well, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, behold – Xavier’s First Class: Well that certainly lived up to the hype. I’m totally digging the direction of this (using the Cuban Missile Crisis as a backdrop to the story) and the retro feel of it has me more than intrigued. I’m hopeful especially since Mr.…

    Ohhh, Look…'X-Men: First Class' Official Photos

    Yesterday the web was a buzz over the casting of Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. While it wasn’t anything that great (I think Hardy is awesome but not impresses with Hathaway) the other comic related bit was this suspicious X-Men photo: Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), January Jones (Emma Frost), Jason Flemyng (Azazel), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Lucas Till (Havok), Zoe Kravitz (Angel Salvadore), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and James McAvoy (Charles Xavier)

    Comic Book Adaptations – Why Do So Many Fail?

    The real Clash of the Titans Comic Book films have certainly come a long way in the past 10 years. There have been some truly sensational films, that spawn even better sequels that keep hope of more films like it alive. Yet there have also been God-awful messes that cannot be unseen no matter what you do. With all the good and bad out there I think filmmakers/studios are finding the groove but things could be a lot better. We need comic book adaptations which will do more than just keep the genre from simply breaking even. Now to start things off, there is no one solitary reason more comic book films fail…
