Comics on Film: 5 X-Men Villains That Should Appear in Future Films
The X-Men are one of Marvel Comics' most iconic brands and well after the film series almost seemingly killed itself with misguided entries like 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand and 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the ship was righted in a big way this year with the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. If you stayed until the end of the credits, you saw what awaits the Mutant Marvels in their next film, due out in 2016: Apocalypse.
Now that we know that Apocalypse will be embodied by actor Oscar Isaac, Comics on Film thought it would be a good idea to explore five other X-Men villains that have yet to appear in the film series, but by all accounts really should in subsequent films. Sometimes its tricky to find the right opposition to a team... Read More

The Best Movie Trailers of the Week
Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week.
This definitely isn’t what we were expecting from Joe Wright’s Pan, but his spin on the J.M. Barrie classic does come as a nice surprise. Hook didn’t get much love from critics, but we've watched the film countless times and still adore it, so we're really enjoying the fact that Pan shares some tonal and stylistic similarities to that. It’s got a somewhat theatrical feel to it with rich, vibrant sets, eccentric costumes and fun, playful performances -- and then Christina Perri’s “I Believe” beautifully pulls it all together.

Welcome to The Last Horror Blog, a biweekly column on all things horror.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer: The Geeky Details You May Not Have Noticed
When the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens played this morning, it provided me with a truly geeky, communal movie experience in a way only Star Wars can. I was lucky enough to be at the Alamo Drafthouse, who was putting on a special event where founder Tim League had assembled a panel of movie nerds, including Movies.com's own John Gholson, to watch the trailer over and over and then talk about it between rewatches.
At first it seemed like we couldn't possibly spend an entire hour talking about 88 seconds. Ninety minutes later and we were still going strong.
And since I was able to stare at freeze frames of this thing in 4K on a huge screen and then debate the meaning and implications of details with nearly 200 friends and strangers, here are... Read More
Before 'Beetlejuice' and 'Batman,' Watch Tim Burton Direct 'The Jar' on 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'
Before he was making Batman and Beetlejuice, director Tim Burton did some work in the field of episodic television. One of those credits came during the mid-1980s revival of anthology series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, where Burton was tasked with adapting Ray Bradbury’s story The Jar. If you ever wondered what a Tim Burton television episode on a major network would look like, well, wonder no more…
Burton takes Bradbury’s 1944 story and gives it his own unique spin while staying relatively true to the source material. The television take makes things more modernized (its set in the ‘80s, complete with all the hilarious fashions and hairdos of the era, and it makes the main character an artist instead of a farmer), and injects some of...

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer: You've Waited 30 Years to Watch This
Delivered straight to us from a galaxy far, far away, here it is folks -- the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first big-screen Star Wars sequel in 30 years.
Watch it below.
We've waited three decades for the return of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and friends, and while we still have an entire year to go till the film officially arrives in theaters (on December 18, 2015, that is), director J.J. Abrams has served up a spectacular 88-second teaser that not only promises a return to the Star Wars movies we fell in love with long ago (that shot of the Millennium Falcon gave us chills!), but also a fresh, inspired take featuring a host of characters that will help fuel the franchise for years to come. Ya know, like these guys...

Watch: All of the Debut 'Star Wars' Trailers, from 'A New Hope' to 'The Force Awakens'
When the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer arrives on Friday, it'll be the first teaser trailer for a Star Wars sequel in over 30 years. So it's a big event, sure, but these first trailers for Star Wars movies have always been something special -- not just because it signals another chapter in this rich mythology, but also because it's the first time we're seeing actual footage from a new Star Wars movie.
Before you check out what The Force Awakens has in store for us when it hits theaters on December 18, 2015, take a trip back down memory lane to see how the other six Star Wars movies first teased and wowed us with a preview of what's to come from a galaxy far, far away.

What Movie Family Would You Like to Eat Thanksgiving Dinner With?
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and a time to eat a lot of food. It's also a time to spend with family, with whom you share your thankfulness and your feast. Not all of us are fans of spending a whole holiday with the whole family, though, or at least that's the cliche idea that has mostly been promoted by the movies. How many plots set during Thanksgiving involve anything but the most dyfunctional clans ever seen?
Look elsewhere, though, and there are a lot of great families in the movies, folks you might wish were your own or whom you'd rather spend Thanksgiving with. Or at least that you'd like to eat the holiday meal with, not necessarily as a substitute but just for fun. There are those who'd provide a wild occasion, like the Vanderhof/Sycamore... Read More
