For many X-Men fans the loss of Bryan Singer's follow-up to his stunning X-Men 2 was a stinging blow, especially when you consider he left the franchise that essentially created the modern-day superhero blockbuster to direct the lukewarm Superman Returns. But, as this is Hollywood and there's always room for second chances, he returns to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past, which melds the original cast with their excellent younger selves (from X-Men: First Class) in one of X-Men's greatest storylines. The first trailer emphasis this dearly, with an emotional theme pounding the point home like you'd expect. There's so many great actors involved that I won't list them here, though seeing Peter Dinklage get his due in such a high-profile, non-dwarf role is pretty thrilling.
The rest of the trailer is pretty awesome, too. Get ready, true believers, as X-Men: Days of Future Past travels into theaters everywhere May 23, 2014! Check out the full trailer at YouTube right HERE!!
Let's face it; movies based on videogames haven't exactly lit the world on fire. But a new generation of them, coupled with an aggressive "take me seriously" attitude is hoping to change that, and that's what EA is hoping for in the adaptation of their hit franchise Need for Speed. Starring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor, which was practically an adaption of videogame Call of Duty) the first trailer makes the film look a lot less like your typical Fast and the Furious film and more contemplative. No quite Drive, but pretty close, though I'm pretty sure the final cut will include plenty of crashes and other hot auto action. I mean, look at the games its based on.
So can the world sustain two andrenaline-pumped, hyper-macho racing franchises at the same time? I guess we'll find out when Need for Speed zooms into theaters - and not gaming consoles - on March 14th!
Now this is what I'm talking about! Probably the happiest, most joyous thing I've seen all day is the first trailer for the long, long overdue match-up of Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) and Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) in Grudge Match. Yes, I realize that it's not an 'official' crossover, but it looks far better - and funnier - than any contrived pairing might have been. Both Stallone and De Deniro look absolutely spectacular and the supporting cast, including Alan Arkan, Kevin Hart, and Kim Basinger (!) all look like they're having a great time. I mean, come on, who doesn't love a good Stallone montage scene...?
I just hope the actual movie is as hilarious and poignant as its trailer, because this is now my offical 'Must See' of what's sure to be a busy holiday watching season. Grudge Match unwraps its goodies everywhere on Christmas Day.
OK, Who Fans, the day you've waited (mostly patiently) for is fast approaching. This November marks the return of one of the most popular actors to ever play one of the most popular characters in television history as the BBC celebrates 50 Years of Doctor Who with David Tennant returning as The Tenth Doctor in Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor. Joining him will be fellow cult-favorite Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, alongside current (and soon-to-be departing) Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman as the time-tripped companion Clara Oswald. Cooler still is the mysterious John Hurt as "The Doctor" - which could mean just about anything in this universe. So how about that truly epic poster showcasing all the fun, am I right?
Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor transmits its Time Lord love to fans on BBCAmerica November 23rd! Are you ready for the Return of Tennant?
Good news for fans of internet streaming as Microsoft has finally launched dedicated apps for their Xbox Music service for both iOS and Android phones. Better still, it looks like everyone else can get in on the fun as the service itself goes ad-supported, via the web, with a completely redesigned interface that's set to look just like the to-be launched update to Windows 8 itself, 8.1 (coming next month).

The long gestating remake of the classic gore-filled masterpiece RoboCop finally has its first trailer, and we've got it posted for your streaming pleasure. Directed by José Padilha and starring some of Hollywood's biggest and brightest, including Samuel Jackson, Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, and...others... RoboCop drops the original's ultra-hard R-rating down to a more casual-friendly PG-13 and with it much of the biting social satire and over-the-top violence and gore. At least, that's what we're thinking will happen. So many of the better 80s films have already been remade into lukewarm, underperforming garbage you can't blame someone for assuming this will be any different. The first trailer certainly doesn't help change any minds.
Of course, this might not be the case at all. Let's see what camp the film picks when RoboCop stomps into theaters February 7th 2014. "I'd buy that for a dollar!"
