Quicksilver Is a Giant Doofball, Bryan Singer Teases New (Old) Mutants for X-Men: Apocalypse

You see that? That’s a new Quicksilver promo from X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s also the reason you’ve just been hit by an inexplicable urge to visit Hot Topic. Don’t blame me. Blame Bryan Singer. Speaking of, he has some things to say about his Days of Future Past follow-up Apocalypse, specifically how it will relate to its comics inspiration and which long-absent mutants might be putting in an appearance. And producer Simon Kinberg answered some questions about Quicksilver in Days of Future Past, including that of whether he’s still Magneto’s who what now?

The Naked Gun, Murder on the Orient Express Are Getting Remakes

It might be because my brain’s in Friday mode, but I’m having a tough time imagining two films that are more polar opposites than The Naked Gun and Murder on the Orient Express. One is a classic film veritably filled with cinematic legends bringing their Oscar-worthy talents to the table. And the other is based on an Agatha Christie novel. But today the two very different films have something in common: They’re being run through Hollywood’s remake machine.

Be Still My Beating Heart; Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg Might Be Writing Star Wars Spinoffs Instead of Episodes VIII and IX

Hey, it’s been like a whole week since we’ve had any real Star Wars news, hasn’t it? Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, here’s an interesting tidbit: You remember how it was reported that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg would probably be writing Episodes VIII and IX? And that LucasFilm hadn’t confirmed it, but various reliable sources were treating it as a sure thing? Turns out it’s not so sure after all. As it turns out, Kasdan and Kinberg are (probably) still writing Star Wars films… but they might be spinoffs focusing on secondary characters, not Episodes VIII and IX.

Disney. Give me my Rogue Squadron movie. Or Wraith Squadron. That is also acceptable. Or both!

Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg to Write Star Wars: Episodes VIII and IX?

Oh, happy day! As you may have heard (from either us or the approximately 12 million other sites heavy on the Star Wars this month), screenwriter Michael Arndt was recently selected to write Star Wars: Episode VII. And now it’s looking like we have writers for Episodes VIII and IX as well: Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg.
