Official Trailer Global Premiere of XMEN: DARK PHOENIX

The long awaited trailer for XMEN: DARK PHOENIX has dropped, along with a "Marvel" opening logo too, so folks can expect this ship to be steered towards the eventual absorption of the XMEN BACK into Marvel!

Premiering February 14th, 2019 in the U.S.A. - XMEN: DARK PHOENIX is written and directed by Simon Kinberg, produced by Simon Kinberg, Hutch Parker, Lauren Shuler Donner, Todd Hallowell, and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

"In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite -- not only to save Jean's soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy."

Film Review: LOGAN (*Spoiler Free Version)

A post shared by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

The “Wolverine” does not need to be wearing his superhero-leather/spandex-suit to be a "hero”, and in LOGAN he is a hero plenty, even if he denies it himself.

THIS is the berserker-Wolverine we should have had 17 years ago, fueled with animal rage and a bloodied tally without mercy and guilt-free consequence.

As “James Howlett”, the “human” overcomes the “mutant”, and let everyone around him fear his rage and sincerity. And “Charles Xavier” (which until even today, I wonder why everyone deems to call him “Ex-Xavier”?) wields the acting chops - unseen in all previous X-Men movies - and is an utter force of emotion and depth.

LOGAN is a “X-Men”-lore, but it is also a damn finely acted ensemble piece, at the very least between Hugh Jackson and Patrick Stewart.

Be Warned: This is NOT a “Happy Joy Joy”-film at all, and you might walk out of the cinema with nary a dry eye. I left heartbroken, myself...

Brutal. Emotional. Bloody Good. Bloody Awesome, in fact!

A very easy 4 x Boxes of Popcorn over 5 full boxes, and I am utterly glad I stuck to my guns to watch this today. You have absolutely no reason NOT to watch this film.


As the credits rolled til the very end, and the cinema hall lights came on, I overhead a couple behind me having a disagreement, with the lady friend walking away exclaiming; ”I told you no end credits, right???!!!” - So yes, to avoid any unpleasant viewing experience if you have not watched LOGAN as yet - NO, there is NO END CREDIT Scene, thank you.


South Korean Black-n-White Promos for #LOGAN

This Korean trailer for LOGAN features images/scenes from the upcoming feature film in stark black and white - most times seen via the lens of the film’s director James Mangold, which makes me wonder if FOX would do well with a BLACK AND WHITE FILM release in the near future - on Blu-ray perhaps? Ala MAD MAX: FURY ROAD’s “Black & Chrome” Edition?

Crushing Adamantium with Hydraulic Press - Promo for #LOGAN

A Hydraulic Press Proves to Be a Poor Match Against the Pure Adamantium in Logan’s Claws … Do not try this at home!! or at any where else!!

LOGAN opens in cinemas everywhere March 3rd, 2017.

On first viewing, I thought the “Hydraulic Press Channel” was a made-up-viral channel meant to promote LOGAN, but it IS an actual channel, showcasing videos of their hydraulic press essentially pressing down on anything and everything!

#LOGAN vs Longan & 'His Time Has Come' TV Spot

LOGAN vs Longan

No it doesn’t have to mean anything besides: “BWAHAHAHAHAHA!” (Pic from Alfred Sim). Scroll down for an explanation of WHAT a “Longan” is, followed by the 'His Time Has Come' TV Spot … because it’s not all about “fruits” :)

"Dimocarpus longan, commonly known as the longan (UK: /ˈlɒŋɡən/; US: /ˈlɑːŋɡən/, /ˈlɔːŋɡən/), is a tropical tree that produces edible fruit. It is one of the better-known tropical members of the soapberry family (Sapindaceae), to which the lychee also belongs. Included in the soapberry family are the lychee, rambutan, guarani, koran, pitomba, Spanish lime and ackee. Longan is commonly associated with lychee, which is similar in structure but more aromatic in taste. It is native to Southern Asia." (Wiki)

"Logan is an upcoming American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Wolverine distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is intended to be the tenth installment in the X-Men film series, as well as the third and final Wolverine solo film following X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Wolverine (2013). The film takes inspiration from Old Man Logan by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, which follows a past-his-prime Logan undertaking a final adventure in the post-apocalyptic future. (Wiki)

“LOGAN” fanart by Rudy Ao


From artist/illustrator Rudy Ao (www.aoillustration.com / DeviantART) comes this oil painting (sized 11 x 17 inch) titled “OLD MAN LOGAN” - based on the image of LOGAN the movie from the earlier days of promotions. Folks interested are to message him direct at “rudynurdiawa@gmail.com”.

“Laura’s Origin” Clip from LOGAN

Here’s a peek at “Laura”; the lil’girl who would be “X-23” in the upcoming feature film “LOGAN”. In the comicbooks, she is a clone of “Wolverine”, and possibly the celluloid-connection here may have been in “X-Men Apocalypse”, where “Logan” was seen mid-way into the film - escaping his capturers - leading to the end of the film, when “blood samples” of Wolverine/“Weapon X” were taken away in a briefcase with the “Essex Corp” logo - which essentially points to “Nathaniel Essex” AKA “Mr. Sinister” in the comicbooks.

All this makes much more sense now, with the faux pixalized video capture of Laura’s “Origin”, still a “speculation” of course, but a slightly more concrete one :)

Laura Origin 1 in Logan
Laura Origin 2 in Logan
Laura Origin 3 in Logan

The image of “Laura” shown cutting herself, might well be more evocative than this video clip altogether as it speaks more of “self-multilation” of a pre-teen, and not something readily show on the silver screen in big budget Hollywood flicks … and in this R-Rated film about fictionalised “superheroes with super-powers”, it shows them to be as “vulnerable” as non-mutant human beings, someone folks - “victims” and their families - can relate to.


*Mind you, it has not be mentioned if this specific clip is to be seen in the film LOGAN itself, as opposed to it being a “viral clip”, but let’s just assume this’ll be, shall we? “Flashback” sequence, of course :)


IMAX Poster for LOGAN


The characters in the upcoming LOGAN feature film depicted as illustrated figures for this IMAX poster, gives it the somewhat gravitas connection to it’s 2D-counterparts in what looks to be a “one-off Graphic Novel” story featuring painted interior pages/panels. The artwork/illustration is by Dave Rapoza.

“Sunseeker” from #LOGAN

"In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces. "
”Wolverine” aka LOGAN aka “James Howlett” (played by Hugh Jackman) heard on the phone, leaving a message with the intention to purchase a boat, the “Sunseeker” .. and you have a clearer idea of what state LOGAN is in, in the movie, driven by tireless demons on his tired mutant body, driving around folks in his stretch limousine … becoming a down-and-out tale of a mutant I’d love to catch in the theatres, for when it premieres March the 3rd, 2017, in the USA.

Is this an actual clip from the movie? Or just a standalone promotional spot?


"You Know the Drill" - Clip from #Logan

LOGAN - “Grace” Super Bowl TV Spot & Final Poster

New TV Spot (“Grace”) for “LOGAN” unleashed during Super Bowl Sunday, and we’ve a “final poster” to look at as well (released last week maybe?). Rated “R”, LOGAN premieres March 3rd, 2017 in the USA, and March 2nd in Singapore.


About That X-Men Comicbook Seen in “LOGAN”

Remember the “X-Men” comicbook LOGAN was holding in his hands, flipping thru some pages in the recent trailer? They were drawn by Marvel Entertainment CCO Joe Quesada! Check out the uncoloured and coloured pages featured here, and see the pencils on his tumblr!
"It was a blast working closely with James Mangold on creating these pages (yes, there’s more than one) and thrilled to have been invited on the project. Attached are my final digital pencils that Dan Panosian had to recreate in a more 90s ink and coloring style and boy did he nail the look!" - shared Joe Quesada.
