With Disney taking over Fox, and the X-Men returning to Marvel Studios’ control, the X-Men franchise is now a lame duck. Dark Phoenix, which should have been the next stop in the two-decade-long franchise, is now the culmination of the franchise that began with 2000’s X-Men. (New Mutants, which was supposed to be the start of a new branch of X-movies, is now a truncated offshoot. Full Story

It was a surprise monster hit in 2017—it’s the highest-grossing horror film ever—and a sequel was immediately greenlit for 2019. Well, the teaser trailer for that sequel, It: Chapter 2, is here and all I have to say is: No thank you. All full up on horror over here. I’m good. Watch this teaser right now, and then come back and let’s talk about why it’s so good. Full Story
