Entertainment Link-Off: Blast from the Past

fan bingbingSummer blockbusters are in full force. Just a week after the release of Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past has made its way to the big screen to rave reviews. Despite some continuity issues, it is one of the best entries in the franchise. You can also catch Fan Bingbing as Blink in the film.

After the jump, some more X-Men related news, Edgar Wright is no longer working on his passion project, listen to Morgan Freeman on helium, Will Ferrell jams with RCHP, Jimmy Fallon does a nip-sync with Terry Crews and listen to the newest track from Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is indeed a welcome addition to the X-Men film franchise. It pretty much wipes out that mistake known as X-Men: The Last Stand. Anyway, while the movie was enjoyable, there are some continuity issues with the film that need to be addressed… (Slashfilm)

Ever wonder what the deleted scene involving Rogue would be like in X-Men: Days of Future Past? Well here is a small description of it. (Collider)

And if you stayed behind and caught the post-credit scene, here’s an explanation of it just incase you didn’t quite get it. (Collider)

Batman vs. Superman gets a new official title and it’s pretty terrible. (Telegraph)

Quentin Tarantino wants to turn his film Django Unchained into a 4 hour miniseries on TV. Apparently he has enough footage to make it happen. (USA Today)

Sad news Marvel fans, Edgar Wright is no longer directing Ant-Man. (Variety)

Joss Whedon is a man of few words, but he is showing his support for Edgar in his latest Instagram post. (Zap2it)

Speaking of people leaving Marvel projects, Drew Goddard is no longer directing and running Daredevil for Netflix. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut didn’t turn out as planned. His film was critically panned by the critics at the screening and even the most positive reviews were lukewarm at best. Now Warner Brothers is looking to get someone else to distribute the film. (Deadline)

This adds fuel to the fire. Sure, most Adam Sandler movies are terrible, but now we know why his latest efforts have been so damn hard to watch! He makes them based on where he wants to vacation!!! (Entertainment Weekly)

According to this rumoured spoilery report, it looks like there just might be some cool dino vs. dino action in Jurassic World. (Joblo)

Morgan Freeman always sounds good… even when he’s on helium. (Entertainment Weekly)

Ranking all of the 2013-2014 shows based on viewership. (Deadline)

Star-Crossed may be cancelled but at least you can find out what would have happened if the show continued on. (Zap2it)

Given the box office success of Godzilla, of course there would be a sequel on the way. (Deadline)

Sure this would be a fanboy’s dream come true but it just might be more fantasy than reality. Yes, Godzilla and Pacific Rim are made by Legendary Pictures, but a crossover doesn’t seem likely at this time. That doesn’t stop a fan from making a mashup trailer though! Have a look at Paczilla!

New international trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Zach Braff is back and is channeling more of what you saw in Garden State. Prepare to laugh heaps and have your heartstrings tug on in Wish I Was Here.

First look at Star Wars: Episode 7 from the Abu Dhabi set. In addition to that, you can appear in the movie by doing a good deed.

First we got two Mortal Kombat webseries. Now bring on Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist.

Jimmy Fallon sure loves friendly competition on his show. Catch the drum-off between Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Don’t those two look really alike?

Speaking of Jimmy Fallon, he was also part of the nip-syncing challenge with Terry Crews. It’s hilarious, but once you see it, it can’t be unseen…

It’s time for another edition of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves.

New music recommendation of the week. Latest reveal from Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album Multiply is the track Thinking Out Loud.
