The X-Men franchise first launched its film in 2000 with some of the most famous cast members, including the iconic actor Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, and more.Bryan Singer directed the first X-Men movie that became one of the most remarkable adaptations of the Marvel Comic books.Turner has already worked in some of the blockbuster movies, such as The Hobbit trilogy, where he plays the character of Kili, and this could be an advantage to him in playing the lead role in the X-Men movies.Bryce has already played a Marvel character as Gwen Stacy in the film, Spider-Man 3 and also played a remarkable role in the Jurassic World franchise.This could be an excellent opportunity for her to play as a superhero if the X-Men franchise considers her in their new X-Men movies.Jensen Ackles As CyclopsJensen Ackles is an excellent choice to consider for Cyclops’ role as he has been playing a lead role in the television series, Supernatural, for the last fifteen years.If the X-Men movies were to be made in 2020, it could also show the chemistry between Jensen Ackles and Bryce Howard, indicating the romance between Jean and Scott in a much better way.

Anyone who's seen David Lynch's 1984 film knows Frank Herbert's book doesn't translate easily to the screen.

Image: CBS On September 8th, CBS All Access is holding an all-day streaming event to commemorate the 54th anniversary of the premiere of the original Star Trek television show. I’ll admit I skimmed the email announcement until I found what I was looking for: yes, Patrick Stewart aka Captain Jean-Luc Picard will be part of the Star Trek panel discussions and will even reunite with Jonathan Frakes aka William Riker aka Number One aka Ensign Babyface. You can tell I am a) respectful of Star Trek because I didn’t go with a cheap “boldly go” or “engage!” pun in my lede, and b) I have a somewhat limited scope of interest in the Star Trek universe. But I think that’s OK! Unlike that other space-related franchise, you can fully enjoy one aspect of the Star... Continue reading…

Nearly two decades after the first Charlie's Angels movie -- and 40 years on from the big-haired '70s TV show -- the franchise returns in a new form.While it does little to escape the convoluted plot twists of the previous films and lacks memorable action set pieces, its unconventional female ensemble channels a bright and poppy empowering energy.The target audience of this movie should be satisfied.The Townsend Agency employing the "Angels" expands on a global scale and the movie builds on its blueprint for female spies, Kingsman-style.Now they all report to a senior spy known as "Bosley" and learn their trade in militarylike training facilities, complete with the obligatory James Bond gadget basement.Elena, played by the endearing Naomi Scott (best known as Jasmine in Aladdin), is a young scientist exposing her dodgy big corporation employer.
Some of them are insanely popular, while others have dropped beneath the radar, but all of them are subjectively hilarious.A baby’s laugh is as infectious as it gets.A flash video that became a YouTube video that became a meme.Samwise’s explanation of just what taters are, precious, is a classic that still has us laughing all these years later.The Crazy Nastyass Honey BadgerWhat’s not to love about someone affectionately describing the thoroughly impressive and aggressive antics of one of natures biggest badasses?
Joining a line that already had everything from Darth Vader’s helmet to more Stormtrooper variants than you can shake an Incinerator Trooper at, the Luke Skywalker X-Wing Battle Simulation Helmet is a 1:1 replica of the same helmet worn by everyone’s favourite Rebel-turned-Jedi-turned-Milk-Swigging-Curmudgeon in both A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.But anyone can put a stupid collectible on their head for 10 minutes, flip some switches and press some buttons, and then call it a day while they wonder where the hell they have the space to put a helmet that is way bigger than you’d ever thought it was despite seeing it in movies you’ve watched zillions of times over.So when Hasbro sent along one of the helmets for review, I decided to really put the new helmet through its paces.Sitting at my desk scanning news feeds.5:00PM: As I have absolutely zero intention of walking around in public with this helmet on, I let my dog Holly have a run around in the back garden instead of our usual walk.5:15PM: It is thankfully only “miserable” levels of grey outside instead of “British Summer” levels of grey, so I feel comfortable actually standing outside wearing this thing instead of hanging out by the door hoping to not get rained on.
We don’t see Jean-Luc here first, but instead, Data (Brent Spiner), wearing his yellow operations uniform from The Next Generation and painting on a canvas.It’s only when Picard enters the picture, also clad in his TNG uniform, that we realise things are certainly less real here, and perhaps more of a dream, something that would make sense given the first trailer showed us Picard still lamenting Data’s sacrifice.“Would you like to finish it, Captain?” Data asks as he offers his paint brush and we see the incomplete painting is of a cloaked woman looking out at a stormy sea.“I don’t know how,” Picard sadly tells Data, before the android tells him otherwise – and the offering of the brush seems to spark flashbacks in Jean-Luc’s head.It’s hard to say if these flashbacks are of an unknown attack or are somehow part of the rescue-operation-gone-wrong in the wake of the destruction of Romulus (which occurred in the prime-timeline parts of the 2009 Star Trek movie, and are canonical to this series) that lead to Picard retiring from Starfleet before the events of the show.Picard wakes from his dream with a lick or two from his new best friend, Number One the pit bull.
The latest trailer for Picard is taking us further into the future of the Star Trek universe decades after the end of Star Trek: The Next Generation.The show stars Patrick Stewart returning as Jean-Luc Picard and will feature other returning appearances, like Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine and Brent Spiner as Data.Additional stars include Isa Briones as Dahj, Jonathan Frakes' return as William Riker and Marina Sirtis' return as Deanna Troi.Picard's release date of Jan. 23 was revealed as part of the trailer, and the series will run for 10 episodes.The new teaser starts off showing Data (Brett Spiner) working on a painting at Picard's vineyard and asking "Would you like to finish it, captain?"The sequence is revealed to be a dream, with Picard waking up to his dog and saying "Ohh, it's all right No.
It was first announced at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention in August 2018, and a nice long trailer just debuted at this weekend's New York Comic-Con.Rumors began swirling about a Picard-centric spin-off series shortly after Star Trek: Discovery showrunner Alex Kurtzmann signed a five-year development deal with CBS to further expand the franchise for its streaming service.The concept was sufficiently unique that Stewart signed on."I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its course," Stewart said at the 2018 convention.There are ten episodes in the first season, with plans for two additional seasons if the series succeeds.The first trailer debuted at San Diego Comic Con in July.
Star Trek: Nemesis is a nightmare of a movie, but one of its slightly better nightmares is the bonkers performance a young, spectacularly shaved Tom Hardy gives as Shinzon, the villain of the film and also the Romulan-made clone of Jean-Luc Picard.But what if instead of just inviting us to believe that Patrick Stewart looked like Tom Hardy as a youth, Shinzon was...just Patrick Stewart?Thanks to this fun application of “deepfakes” machine learning AI technology – a rare application, given that in the real world it is often applied in downright petrifying manners – by YouTuber Deep Homage, we no longer have to wonder, because now we can watch Shinzon’s reveal scene, except now instead of Tom Hardy walking out of the shadows to shock Jean-Luc Picard to his core, it’s... well, Patrick Stewart:It’s still rendered deeply uncomfortable, bald Tom Hardy or otherwise, thanks to the fact that Hardy’s voice is still coming out of fake-Patrick-Stewart’s mouth.That, and somehow despite being bald himself, putting Stewart’s face on Hardy’s bald bonce some how makes his head look even more ginormous.But still, it’s a fun use of weird technology that makes the film’s attempt to make a clone of Picard actually, properly work.
