Fandom News

  • Here is this week’s episode of The Star Wars Show.

The latest episode of The Star Wars After Show.

Movie & Television News

  • Okay, so this might be the first time an X-Men trailer has impressed me. Logan comes out March 2017 and it looks pretty good.

  • At first glance, Pet seems like a cheesy horror movie where a creepy guy abducts a girl and put her in a cage. But this movie appears to put a spin on it when the captive begins tormenting the captor. It’ll be out December 2nd.

  • Getting even weirder is A Cure For Wellness which will be out February 2017. While weird, it could be promising. It’s certainly got some great visuals.

  • Let’s go out on a high note with the teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which will be out May 5, 2017.
