After directing films like Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby to critical and popular success – and winning the odd Oscar® – the last thing anyone expected Clint Eastwood to do was adapt a Tony Award-winning musical about ‘60s group The Four Seasons (Big Girls Don’t Cry, Sherry, Walk Like a Man). Which was probably why he did it.

Warner Brothers UK has just released a trailer for the movie – which features the stars of the Broadway hit – and it looks very interesting. Check it out after the jump. Jersey Boys will premiere on June 20th.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most beloved sequences in X-Men comics history and a potentially brilliant premise for an X-Men movie. Between the cast, director and teasers for the film, it seems like it could be the best of the X-Men movies.

The final trailer for the Bryan Singer movie has just been released and it does look good – starting with Logan/Wolverine trying to persuade the young Charles Xavier that he’s been sent from the future to prevent a Sentinel-based apocalypse. Among other delights, we get our first really good look at the X-Men version of Quicksilver and the touching (in a completely different sense of the word) Xavier/Eric Lensherr reunion. Check it out after the jump.

oculus_2014

Whenever I see the title of the new film horror flick Oculus, my first thought is always – “Wow, they made a movie about the Virtual Reality Video Game makers, should be interesting.” My second thought is, what is the plural of Oculus? Oculi? I didn’t know what to expect when walking into this movie, but it did star two of my favorite actresses Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff and former Doctor Who companion Karen Gillan. How did it go wrong so fast?
