fb share tweet share

Well holy shit, this is a happy surprise. Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller’s long-awaited return to the post-apocalyptic wastes he first visited in 1979, has been one of our most anticipated movies over last few years, and even though we still have to wait until May 15, 2015 to see it, our enthusiasm has not diminished one bit. In fact, when Warner Bros. does things like unleash this new trailer, it makes us want to go into some kind of hypersleep so this will be the first thing we see when we wake up in six months. But don’t my word for it, check out the madness for yourself.

X-Men: Apocalypse Is Looking At Tom Hardy For This Major Role

fb share tweet share

Tom HardyAll the current superhero casting hype lately has revolved around who is going to play Doctor Strange in director Scott Derrickson’s upcoming version of the character for Marvel. And that’s justified, fans have been clamoring to see Stephen Strange onscreen for years. Damn near every actor in Hollywood has been rumored in connection with the part (I feel like eventually I’m going to be linked to the role), but buried under all these reports and speculation, there’s another interesting superhero casting rumor. Fox reportedly wants Tom Hardy could play a villain in the next X-Men movie.

Continuing down their timeline-tweaking, not-quite-a-reboot path that started with X-Men: First Class and picked up this summer with X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse is up next. According to reports, the studio is after Hardy to play the role of the titular villain in the Bryan Singer-directed mutant adventure. Right now he’s being “courted,” and what that means remains to be seen—he could be in talks, or maybe he’s just at the top of the wishlist, we don’t really know.

Tom Hardy And Charlize Theron Gets Super Gritty In New Mad Max: Fury Road Images

fb share tweet share

mad max: fury roadHad a story come out today that claimed Max Max: Fury Road was all a big collective fever dream that the world was having, I wouldn’t have been overly surprised, considering barely anything about this movie has been revealed since its inception. However, a bunch of new images have been released, forcing me to believe that this movie isn’t just real, but that it’s going to be a dark and violent dystopian adventure. My favorite kind!

It’s been 16 long years since director George Miller took audiences to strangely futuristic places in 1998’s Babe: Pig in the City — I have seriously blocked Happy Feet out of my mind for good, except for that one reference there — and it’s been almost 30 years since Max Rockatansky graced the big screen. Miller is returning to form in a huge way with Mad Max: Fury Road, his biggest film yet. Compare its $100 million budget to the $12 million budget of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and one starts to get really excited by how over-the-top this sorta-sequel will turn out. Lord knows when we’ll see an actual trailer for this flick, but Entertainment Weekly has thankfully stepped in to give us our biggest visual dose of Mad Max yet.

Who Should Play The New Snake Plissken: Jason Statham Or Tom Hardy?

fb share tweet share

I want to get one thing out of the way up front. Remaking John Carpenter’s 1981 classic Escape From New York is a terrible, terrible idea, and completely unnecessary to boot. That’s not what we’re debating here, because that’s not even a real question. They should just leave well enough alone.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, onward.

Jason StathamJason Statham Should Be Snake

If either Tom Hardy or Jason Statham is going to attempt to take over the role of Snake Plissken, made famous by badass cinematic titan Kurt Russell, it should totally be the latter.

Out of the two, Hardy is by far the superior actor. To argue otherwise is to make a difficult case. Take a quick look at their respective bodies of work and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Statham is a one-trick pony, but he does what he does well, and that one weapon in his arsenal just so happens to line up perfectly with what the part requires.
