Kevin Jagernauth — The Playlist »

“We actually don’t even have the completed budget yet. But it will be in that range. These large, tentpole kinds of movies, on the expensive side, are in the neighborhood of $175-200 million, that kind of a number — some are more, some are less,” Horn shared. “We need to give the audience, essentially, a full meal in return for their affection and devotion and love for these properties.”

Will ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Feature The Younger Cast Only?

Will ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Feature The Younger Cast Only?
Russ Fischer — /Film »

Until X-Men: Days of Future Past opens, we won’t know who survives and what shape they’re in. But there’s no question that Fox will be making more X-Men movies to follow it, starting with X-Men: Apocalypse. But what about the classic cast — is this year’s film their swan song, with the exception of Hugh Jackman? That’s seemed likely, given past statements from Singer such as…

Is Anna Paquin in ‘Days of Future Past’ or Isn’t She?
Josh Wilding — ComicBookMovie.com »

In an interview with Crave Online, X-Men: Days of Future Past writer and producer Simon Kinberg was asked to clear things up in regards to Anna Paquin’s role in the “inbetweenquel”. Fans were disappointed to learn that the actress had been cut from the movie, although the backlash seemingly led to at least a small part of what was once a significant chunk of screentime being restored. “I just…

‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ First Five Minutes

‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ First Five Minutes

DreamWorks has released the first five minutes of How to Train Your Dragon 2 and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome. I have recently sat myself down and watched the first How To Train Your Dragon film and it was amazing. This makes me very hopeful for the second installation in this franchise. I’m liking what I see so far. And the world has so utterly changed from what was going on in the first…

“Dear Marvel, Please Start Caring About Your Soundtracks”

“Dear Marvel, Please Start Caring About Your Soundtracks”
David R — Unreality »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s musical score is just flat-out bad. I’m sure you could justify the thought process behind its design, but there’s nothing original about it, and most of the cues range from boring to — literally — physically uncomfortable.

The carry-over from the last movie, or even from The Avengers, was minimal. Cap’s theme was conspicuously absent, and one…

New ‘Godzilla’ TV Spot

New ‘Godzilla’ TV Spot

Finally, we actually get a pretty good look at the beast. Let’s just say he’s massive. There’s not a lot else remarkable about this TV spot. So watch it, then make sure the YouTube settings are set to full HD, and go to around :25 in this spot and pause it for a good gander at this beast in full HD glory. He looks pretty legit, eh?

‘Agents of SHIELD’ Clip — Will Ward be Discovered?

‘Agents of SHIELD’ Clip — Will Ward be Discovered?

I’m not yet sure I like exactly what’s going on in Agents of SHIELD since Captain America: The Winter  Soldier hit theaters, but it’s certainly not boring. The stakes are higher, foes are friends and friends are foes. My wife pointed out to me that Ward’s turn was very Whedonesque. I suppose she’s right but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

In any event, this clip makes one wonder if he’s…
