The X-Men have been around since the early ’60s, when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first created one of Marvel’s most beloved and successful properties to date. Some of the comic book’s many mutants characters have become more popular than others over the past fifty plus years, while appearing in many different forms in games, merchandise, movies and TV.
At this point, you almost can’t have the X-Men without Professor X, Wolverine, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Beast, Nightcrawler, Jubilee and Kitty Pryde, just to name a few.

Beloved cinematographer Andrew Lesnie has died suddenly from a suspected heart attack at age 59.
Just as much as Peter Jackson, Lesnie was the man responsible for the look of "the Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" films, having worked as director of photography on all six movies in the two trilogies.
Leslie served as DP on over forty films and series including "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," 2005's "King Kong," "I Am Legend," "The Lovely Bones," both "Babe" films, "The Last Airbender," "The Delinquents," "Spider & Rode," "Two if by Sea," "Doing Time for Patsy Cline," "Bran Nue Dae".
His most recent and now final film was Russell Crowe's "The Water Diviner" which is currently in cinemas in the United States.

It’s still nearly impossible to believe just how faithfully The Flash has adhered to its DC Comics source material – even when the villains and plot twists being adapted are hard to ever imagine in a live-action TV show. And going by the marketing for the final few episodes of the show’s first season, the writers are showing no signs of stopping the momentum.
Yet even with all their previous success, Gorilla Grodd seemed like far, far too much to hope for. But as strange as it may seem, the recent trailer confirmed that Grodd – an intelligent, telepathic ape – would be showing up to throw a wrench ...

Over the next few years, many classic action/adventure franchises will be revisited. Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open later this year; not one, but two Ghostbusters films are in the works at Sony; and 20th Century Fox and director Roland Emmerich are returning to the world of the 1996 sci-fi action film, Independence Day.
Independence Day 2 has long been in the works at Fox, but it was officially given the green light last fall with production set to start in Spring 2015 – aiming for a Summer 2016 release. Now, a new cast member has been added ...
