Bryan Singer To Direct ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ Which Won’t Feature The Old X-Men

Last week, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted out “#Xmen #Apocalypse #2016,” leading the internet to very reasonably assume the next X-film would focus on classic X-Men villain Apocalypse.

We The Kings have been busy as of late.

Watch Members of Soundgarden & Mudhoney Play at Pearl Jam’s Final Tour Date

What doesn’t happen at a Pearl Jam show? From Sleater-Kinney reuniting to a fan getting his dreads shaved off by Eddie Vedder himself, it seems like nothing is too far-fetched to happen onstage during this tour. So it should come as no surprise that at the tour’s final date at Key Arena in their hometown […]

According to an article posted by The Hollywood Reporter, a study conducted by the Annenberg Public Policy Center and the University of Pennsylvania states there is “little difference” between ‘PG-13’ and ‘R’ rated films.

ALBUM STREAM: Honour Crest – ‘Spilled Ink’

The Virginia-based metalcore outfit known as Honour Crest earned my affection last year when they released their debut EP, Metrics. Shortly after they signed to Rise Records, and announced that they would be releasing their first full length, titled Spilled Ink.
