First Look at What We Do in The Shadows Series

If you haven’t seen the film What We Do In The Shadows from director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) and starring Waititi and Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords fame, it’s absolutely worth a watch. A hilariously dark comedy about an inept group of vampires in the modern world.

With its success, an American reboot was inevitable, but this time the original team is still involved as the series takes place in the same world, rather than acting as a reboot. Check out the video above for a first look, and hit the jump to check out a second look.

Fox is officially in a mad dash to milk as much money as possible from its many franchises, as it is now being rumored that a Kingsman prequel starring Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson is in the works, set for an early 2019 production start date, with a 2020 release. The rumored title is Kingsman: The Great Game, with Matthew Vaughn to return to direct.

Dark Phoenix Trailer Now Online

20th Century Fox has revealed the first official trailer for the latest, and final, X-Men film, Dark Phoenix. Adapting one of the most iconic stories in Marvel history, that skyrocketed the X-Men into the public spotlight and shifted the dynamic of the comics giant for decades, Fox has tried numerous times to get the character “right,” with this being their attempt.

While on a mission in space, Jean Grey is hit with a cosmic force that draws out immeasurable power from her and endangers the entire world when an alien force enters the fray in an attempt to weaponize the force and rule the galaxy. Dark Phoenix brings back much of the cast of the new films, which includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee , Sophie Turner, and Evan Peters. Dark Phoenix hits theaters on February 14th, 2019.

Disney will now take charge of Fox’s big and small screen assets, as well as select businesses. Fox will retain assets of its many news and sports channels.

The merger has already been approved by the Department of Justice, giving Disney near-immediate control of the many properties and assets. What do you think Disney should do first? Fantastic Four? X-Men reboot? The options are pretty great.

New Deadpool 2 Trailer Drops

20th Century Fox has dropped a new trailer for Deadpool 2 that puts full spotlight on the story, and the formation of the X-Force, who officially gets their name here. The villain of the film is officially Cable, which comes as quite the surprise, as the time-travelling hero is attempting to kill a dangerous mutant in the past.

The new trailer is some pretty great fun, and definitely sets the stage for a potentially great movie amidst confusion based on reshoots and up and down leaked reviews. Only time will tell as Deadpool 2 hit theaters May 18th.

First Full Trailer for Legion Season 2

FX has shared the first full official trailer for the second season of Legion, and it seems to be just as strange as the first, which is absolutely a good thing. At the end of the first season, David was taken by a mysterious item and transported away, but he seems to have returned, albeit a little different.

On top of that, the mutants have joined forces with Division 3 to combat the growing threat of the Shadow King. Season 2 of Legion debuts on FX on April 13th.

Fox Interested in WWE Broadcast Rights

A rumor had been circulating for quite some time, that Fox was interested in purchasing WWE from Vince McMahon. However, that rumor has since been debunked, and elaborated that the company is interested in bringing WWE Raw to broadcast television on FOX, and WWE Smackdown! to air on Fox Sports. The bid is meant as a fallback if Fox loses UFC, but the $400 million amount is equal to that of USA, who is hoping to retain those rights after next year.

WWE’s broadcast contract is set to expire on September 30th, 2019, but where the flourishing company goes is still to be determined. Would you watch WWE Raw on Fox?

New Full Deadpool 2 Trailer

20th Century Fox released a new full trailer for Deadpool 2 that gives us a load more action, with plenty of news looks at the new and returning faces in the film. We get some action with Josh Brolin’s Cable, as well as Domino, Colossus, as well as some shocking faces, such as Terry Crews playing an unknown character.

The trailer is fantastic, and definitely pushes the hype train for this much anticipated sequel further. The month of May is going to be stacked with some of the best comic book films of all time, that’s for damn sure.

Lizzy Caplan Joins Gambit in Mystery Female Lead Role

The long-awaited cast of Gambit is finally taking shape, with actress Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield, Masters of Sex) joining the film in a mystery female lead role. Early in production, it was rumored that Lea Seydoux (Spectre) would be the female lead, cast as Bella Donna Boudreaux, but that has clearly been passed on. It’s currently unclear, if Caplan will take up the role, or this is entirely new, given the constant re-writes the films has undergone.

Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) is set to helm the project with a script from Josh Zetumer (Patriots Day). Filming is expected to begin next year in New Orleans.

Multiple Man Film In the Works

Surprisingly, Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has added a new mutant-centric spin-off to its ranks, with a Multiple Man movie now in the works, starring James Franco (The Disaster Artist). Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg is attached to pen the script for the film which has Kinberg, currently in post-production on X-Men: Dark Phoenix, attached to produce.

Jamie Madrox, aka Multiple Man, is a mutant with the ability to create duplicates of himself. He can also reabsorb the duplicates, absorbing the collective of their memories and experiences.

First Deadpool 2 Teaser Hits

The first teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 has hit, and it’s not exactly what anyone expected, and yet, seems completely normal for the Merc With a Mouth. The teaser starts as a ridiculous Bob Ross parody, before jumping into a series of jump-cuts with our first look at footage from the film.

On top of that, 20th Century Fox released the first synopsis for the film, and it falls in line with the teaser trailer pretty well, in that it makes absolutely no sense.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

First Trailer for The New Mutants

20th Century Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for Josh Boone’s surprising The New Mutants, marking the first horror foray for a Marvel film. The first trailer looks terrifying, and very much like a more cliche horror film at this point, with mention of mutants, but what appears to be few connections.

The New Mutants hits theaters on April 13th, 2018 in regular theaters, and IMAX. Said to be based on the fan-favorite Demon Bear Saga from the comic books.
