Josh Trank’s new Fantastic Four has been mired in controversy since the start. First there was pushback from fans for casting younger actors in the lead roles, as well as making Sue Storm and her brother Johnny adopted siblings. Then there were rumors about reshoots, because supposedly Fox executives were unhappy with the finished product. This led people to assume that trouble during production was the reason there hadn’t been any promotion for the film yet, even though the movie had finished filming more than six months prior.
But now all that drama is in the past, and Fantastic Four is clearly looking ahead to its worldwide premiere in just a few months. Sure, there’s still some people talking about the film’s casting, but one of the stars recently addressed that by penning an open letter to critics. …

Eight years and four movies after Michael Bay first directed a Transformers movie, and it’s now a multi-billion dollar franchise. Despite critical perception of the series dwindling over the years, each new movie in the franchise has still managed to rake in hundreds of millions of dollars. So in spite of all evidence to the contrary, people clearly love watching Transformers movies.
And that’s something Paramount was counting on a few months ago when they placed Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) in charge of their new Transformers shared universe. It’s the studio’s hope that Goldsman can put together an all-star team of writers to map out the storylines of future films. The practice itself is …

Not everyone knows Luc Besson by name, but it’s safe to say that most people have seen at least one of his many films. La Femme Nikita, Leon: The Professional, The Transporter, Taken, The Fifth Element and most recently, last year’s Lucy, all hail from the French writer-director-producer. And for his next film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Besson will once again return to his science fiction roots.
Based on the award-winning 1967 French graphic novel Valérian and Laureline, Besson’s next project follows Valerian and his red-haired companion Laureline as they travel the universe through space and time.

It’s the beginning of the end for Outlander season 1, and with only two episodes left, viewers are going to be shocked at where the show goes next. Fans of Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling novels already know that things are going to get much worse for Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) before they get better, but just remember there will be light at the end of the long tunnel.
Last week’s episode saw Claire, Jenny (Laura Donnelly) and Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) on the search for Jamie after he was taken by the Redcoats when his raiding party was ambushed. The episode then ended with Claire and a few brave MacKenzie men going into battle to get her husband back from the nefarious Captain Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies).

Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries drew to a close Thursday by saying goodbye to the series’ lead character, Elena Gilbert. But despite the emotional events of the season finale, The CW’s long-running vampire drama is far from over.
