X-Men: Apocalypse – “The History of Apocalypse” Featurette

…..What did I say yesterday? Exactly. There is going to be a lot more X-Men shenanigans as the movie is only a few weeks away! And now we have a brand new featurette.

After the events of Days of Future Past, there is something stirring within the mutant community. Worshipped as a god since his birth, Apocalypse hunts down powerful mutants to become immortal and invincible. Recruiting more mutants to his fold, including the heartbroken Magneto (after leaving Charles and walking this world alone,) the fate of the world is left in the hands of Raven, Professor X, and the young X-Men.

The latest featurette poses some interesting questions about the upcoming film. The History of Apocalypse shows that he has inhibited the body of different mutants and it suggests that he may do the same with Xavier. Especially because there is a battle where Xavier stands – it makes sense that it’s in his mind.

Also. He is played by Oscar Isaac.

That is all.

He can inhabit my body any day.


X-Men: Apocalypse is out May 18th

Me Before You – Brand New Trailer!

Well, are you ready to rip your eyeballs out and shove them in a lemony salty mixture then still them back in? Because I have a feeling you are going to sob your eyes out when you see the film Me Before You, starring before Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin.

Based on a book by Jojo Moyes, the film revolves around Lou Clark who is a career for paralyzed Will Traynor. Throughout their time together, they begin to fall in love and realise that there is something more going on. But can they live happily ever after? Me thinks that won’t be the case.

The critically acclaimed book has scored hundreds of fans, as have the two main leads in franchises Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games. For those who love a good cry, and by good cry we mean a gut-wrenching sob-fest that leaves you soulless and empty inside, then Me Before You could be the film for you!


Me Before You is out June 3rd

X-Men: Apocalypse – International TV Spot

Now that Civil War has been released, and we’re still salivating over the latest from Marvel. Fox, not wanting to be forgotten in this hub of superheroes battling the shit out of one another, have been releasing more footage than you can shake a Xavier at. So in the midst of Cap, Iron Man, and the aftermath of Batman V Superman…Can X-Men: Apocalypse impress?

After the events of Days of Future Past, there is something stirring within the mutant community. Worshipped as a god since his birth, Apocalypse hunts down powerful mutants to become immortal and invincible. Recruiting more mutants to his fold, including the heartbroken Magneto (after leaving Charles and walking this world alone,) the fate of the world is left in the hands of Raven, Professor X, and the young X-Men.

Though this is in Spanish (you can learn a little bit by listening to the mutant translations,) there is still brand new footage and makes it so exciting. Ok. So it’s five seconds of new shit sandwiched into the similar scenes we have seen before. But it’s still good, right?
