A perfect swan song for the almighty beast. You shouldn’t really call Logan a superhero movie. Sure, it’s packed with the awe inspiring action scenes synonymous with Marvel films, but calling it such undermines the true power of this film. Instead, it’s a story about a man trying to find peace with the world that he’s saved countless times before. Hugh Jackman has portrayed Wolverine in no less than nine films over 17 years but has finally called it quits in this last outing, directed by James Mangold, in what is as much a fitting ending for the character as it is for the actor that portrays the adamantium-clad beast. The story centres around a heavily aged Logan. His body isn’t healing as quickly and his metal skeleton is slowly poisoning him. He’s keeping a low profile at an abandoned factory in Mexico where he’s hiding a much older, much wilder Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) who’s slowly losing his mind to old age, rambling to the point that it’s hard to recognise the same Professor X that’s almost god-like in previous films. It’s the first sign that times have changed and the remaining mutants are living day-by-day to get by, away from the spotlight of the awesome battles th

Yesterday the Oscar nominations were announced and Ryan Gosling's La La Land practically cleaned up with a whopping fourteen nominations - a record that takes the film on par with Titanic.

Cue 90's nostalgia as the Power Rangers is the latest film to get the reboot for a modern day audience.

With their newfound powers, the group assemble against a purely evil

With Bumblebee left to maintain safety on Earth as the leader of the Autobots, the world finally seemed at peace. However, as the latest trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight released this week, we learn that Mark Wahlberg & Co are not as safe as they would like. The trailer begins with the legendary Anthony Hopkins narrating scenes of war throughout the ages, from the medieval battle through to a war torn world of both flesh and metal. Optimus Prime has left Earth and it doesn’t seem long before the wrath of the Decepticons is upon us again, but why? The trailer shows the world seemingly being engulfed by what looks a digital planet (maybe something to do with Unicron & Cybertron) but what is most surprising is the return of Optimus, and what looks to be a fight scene between him and Bumblebee. As with most Michael Bay trailers, it leaves more questions than answers and we’ve become all too accustomed to his usual smoke and mirrors. So why does Optimus come back? What on earth is taking over Earth this time? What do the Decepticons want? Anthony Hopkins seems to know. Watch the trailer from Paramount Pictures and let us know what you think.
