    Weekend Box Office: $56 Million 'First Class' Opening Isn't X-actly What Fox Had In Mind

    As the only major opening of the week, it was not a surprise to see “X-Men: First Class” reign with a $56 million total. For those keeping track at home (why are you doing this?), this is the lowest-scoring opening weekend for any of the four films in the “X-Men” series save for the eleven-year old ...

    Matthew Vaughn Was A Yeller, Already Thinking Sequels & 18 Things Learned About 'X-Men First Class'

    "X" marks the spot! (Sorry, had to go there.) After a long wait, at least quality-wise, the mutants are back and "X-Men: First Class" has arrived and opens in theaters nationwide today. This super hero film also lands with a rather huge sigh of relief to three distinctly different groups of people. 1) The fans: after having to endure two mediocre to abysmal installments of the 'X-Men' series ("X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"), the Matthew Vaughn-directed "X-Men: First Class," is a nice return to form and almost on-par with Bryan Singer's much beloved &qu...

    First Reactions To 'X-Men: First Class' Suggest It's The Summer Home-Run We've Been Waiting For

    Since the start of the year, we haven't been shy about our opinion that "X-Men: First Class" seemed to be the most promising of the four superhero entries landing this summer. The cast is great, Matthew Vaughn looks ready to step up a level, and the trailers have been among the best-cut of the year....

    Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton & Mia Wasikowska To Star In Vampire Film From Jim Jarmusch

    John Hurt Also In CastThe idea of the vampire, that of the undead creature that survives by feeding off the blood of living people -- is an enormously resilient, resonant one, so it makes sense that there continue to be dozens of stories about them -- barely a year has gone by in the history of cinema without at least one example. But the last few years, it's gotten ridiculous: from blockbusters like "Twilight" and the upcoming "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," to indies like "Let The Right One In" and its American remake, to TV series like "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries," the damn things are everywhere, and we can't be the only peopl...

    Michael Fassbender & Liam Cunningham To Star In Northern Irish Punk Movie 'Good Vibrations'

    David Holmes To Write The ScoreConsidering the way in which punk rock changed the music world so comprehensively, it's surprising that relatively few films have been made following the great bands of the era. There have been great documentaries, from "The Filth and the Fury" to Ramones doc "End of a...

    Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender & More Sought For 'Akira'

    Garrett Hedlund, Chris Pine, Justin Timberlake & Joaquin Phoenix Also In The MixThe long-gestating "Akira" remake seems to have been knocking around for awhile now and to Warner Bros' credit, they are trying to get it as right as possible before moving this thing forward. With most fans outright skeptical of how the studio is going to change the wild, decidedly not mainstream manga into a broadly appealing, PG-13 two-film franchise, last month the studio brought in the big guns which -- for better or worse -- point in the direction they're headed. Steve Kloves, who has penned seven of the eight ‘Harry Potter’ movies, was tasked with polishing...

    Review: 'Jane Eyre' A Hauntingly Effective Gothic Drama

    When tasked with reimagining Charlotte Brontë's immortal "Jane Eyre," which seems to be adapted somewhere, by someone, every couple of years, some key decisions must be made. The impulse that seems to have seized director Cary Fukunaga was to emphasize the gothic horror elements of the story, while ...

    Resoundingly Crap New Posters For 'X-Men: First Class' Debut

    We're beginning to suspect that someone at 20th Century Fox's marketing department is deliberately fucking with Matthew Vaughn, perhaps as revenge for bailing on "X-Men: The Last Stand" all those years ago. For some time, the "Kick-Ass" director's return to the mutant franchise, in the form of prequ...
