As most of you know, actor Hugh Jackman is currently preparing to play the X-Men character Wolverine one last time in the upcoming Wolverine 3. We’ve already heard from Patrick Stewart that Professor Xavier will appear in the movie, and now Jackman is giving us some more hints. In a recent interview Jackman said the following: “There were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back, there was… I must admit I was quite heartened by a number of people saying please don’t make it the last, but I’m really excited about this last one, and if you’re a comic book fan, then the words ‘berserker rage’ came up a lot, so if you know Wolverine, you’ll understand.”
This week the new video game movie adaptation hits the big screen with Hitman: Agent 47. Last night our own John and Kristian had a chance to go to Fox Studios to watch the film for the first time.

District 9, Elysium and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp is currently working on developing Alien 5 for Fox. However, according to a new report, the movie may get push back as much as a year due to Ridley Scott insisting that his upcoming Prometheus 2 film come out first. The report says the following: “ ‘Alien 5’ is still very much in the works, as Fox remains hot on the idea. Blomkamp continues to work on the script (only an outline existed previously) and refine the tale he is telling. Ridley Scott is still producing, but has insisted on ‘Prometheus 2′ being made first.”
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation actress Rebecca Ferguson has joined the upcoming Emily Blunt film The Girl On The Train. The film is being directed by The Help and Get On Up director Tate Taylor and is based on the best selling book of the same name. A regular train communter sees an event that shocks her and her world is thrown into chaos after she reports the incident to the police.
A brand new trailer for the upcoming Ridley Scott film The Martian starring Matt Damon. When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, members of NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring him home, while his crew mates hatch their own plan for a daring rescue mission.
A post-apocalyptic Zorro film has been in development over at Fox Studio for a number of years but the project has failed to ever get off the ground. Now according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has let the project go and Lantica Media and Sobini Films have picked up the project and is aiming to start shooting the film in March. The film is described as a post-apocalyptic take on the myth of Zorro…set in the near future but keeps the idea of a masked and caped stranger taking on tyrants.

Tien writes: With Warner Bros. gearing up to launch their DC cinematic continuity, many have accused them of rushing to catch up to Marvel’s successful cinematic universe. Lest we forget, while Marvel was busy establishing the MCU, WB was juggling the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, the Dark Knight trilogy, the 300 films, V for Vendetta, and countless other good to great movies. So between the two studios, which is truly ahead of the other?
