Patrick Stewart announces retirement from X-Men franchise

Source: Patrick Stewart’s Twitter

Patrick Stewart has announced that Logan will be the last X-Men movie he will appear as Professor Charles Xavier.

EW.com reports that the actor made the announcement on an SiriusXM Radio Town Hall, in which he appeared with the director of the film James Mangold and Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman, who has repeatedly said that this will be his last film for the franchise as well.

Stewart is quoted as saying:

“A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie,” said Stewart. “And I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and — this is an admission — but at one point [Hugh] reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing. Then, the movie ended… and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.’”

Classic Sega Games Coming to TV?

Correction: We incorrectly identified the Michael Hurst who directed The House of the Dead 2 as the Michel Hurst who directed Spartacus and Ash vs the Evil Dead. There are actually 2 Michael Hursts, and the one this article refers to has directed such straight to dvd classics such as Room 6 and The Baby Juice Express.

In 2014, Sega announced plans to expand into TV and Films. We already know that Sega is planning a live action/CG Sonic the Hedgehog film. Now according to Variety, we’ve learned that Sega is planning TV shows based on Altered Beast and Streets of Rage. Stories International, Sega’s multimedia wing, is partnering with Circle of Confusion (Feat the Walking Dead, Powers, Dirk Gently) to create tv shows based upon the two properties. Altered Beast was an arcade game that hit the Genesis as a pack-in game. Playing as a resurrected warrior, players gain the ability to kill demons and absorb their essences to mutate into animal forms. Streets of Rage was a popular beat-em-up franchises starring a group of undercover cops attempting to clean up the city.

Sega is also attempting to bring several other franchises to tv and film, including Virtua Fighter, Crazy Taxi, Shinobi, Golden Axe, and House of the Dead. Coincidentally, House of the Dead was Sega’s first attempt at bringing its franchises to the screen. Uwe Boll directed the disastrous 2003 film while Michael Hurst (Room 6, The Baby Juice Express) directed 2005’s even worse straight to dvd sequel. After that debacle, Sega can’t go anywhere but up. However when it comes to movies based on games, past experiences haven’t exactly filled us with confidence.

Logan Trailer

Here’s our first look at Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. While it looks somewhat inspired by the Old Man Logan storyline, it looks like most of its inspiration comes from Clint Eastwood westerns and Mad Max. It’s definitely a different take on the superhero genre and could be fitting for Wolverine’s last hurrah. We also get a glimpse of Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce, and a little girl that some believe could be X-23. Check it out and tell us what you think.

Second Guardians of the Galaxy trailer takes us on a ride

The new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is upon us and sure packs a punch. We see lots of new things in here. First, we revisit Korath, the Pursuer confronting Peter Quill as he tries to steal some orb object. Among the things that follow are Starlord’s ship, Ronan the Accuser (who apparently has more than just a cameo in this movie), a little more of Nova Prime (Glenn Close) and the Nova Corps, Rocket Raccoon speaking, Knowhere (the disembodied head of a Celestial converted into a space port), a glimpse of a fight between Nebula and Gamora, Groot (Vin Diesel) speaking his notable catchphrase and finally, lest we forget, Rocket Raccoon adjusting himself.

Star Wars: Episode VII gets release date, official cast announcement, but no expanded universe

star-wars-episode-7-cast-announce

StarWars.com had some announcements for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film.

Regarding the cast:

“Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.”

Regarding John Williams and the release date:

“Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.”

While its great to finally have confirmation on the cast and release date, the new revelations have been met with some disappointment at the near absence of any new women.

This announcement comes on the heels of news that the Star Wars expanded universe from the novels and other media, will not be acknowledged by any of the forthcoming movies. Instead, the expanded universe will live on under the banner of Star Wars: Legends. The movie canon will only be respecting the existing 6 movies and the Clone Wars television series.

“In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an element of surprise and discovery for the audience, Star Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe. While the universe that readers knew is changing, it is not being discarded. Creators of new Star Wars entertainment have full access to the rich content of the Expanded Universe. For example, elements of the EU are included in [upcoming animated series] Star Wars Rebels.”
