Why Is There NO Hidden Scene After "X-Men: First Class" Credits? Yes, I Sat Through Them So You Don't Have To! 

So I love "X-Men: First Class!" (Check out my "X-Men: First Class" movie review right here)

And like a good movie buff or a Marvel geek, I sat through the credits for the always-dependable hidden scene at the end. So to my surprise, THERE WAS NONE which prompted an irate member of the audience to say, "this is bs, this is not a Marvel movie."

Was he right? Are we accustomed to seeing hidden scenes now after a Marvel film? And if we don't, does it take away from enjoying the movie itself? Of course not, but I was still bummed. Couldn't they have given us some "Wolverine" hidden scene? I know the movie is in limbo, but they could have shot a secret scene right?

The only reason I could come up with is that the next film in the Marvel paradise is "The Avengers." But that's from Paramount, which I'm sure Fox was not about to give any free publicity.

"X-Men: First Class" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does the Reboot Get? 

The time is 1962, John F. Kennedy is our president, and his biggest problems are the Cold War and the impending Cuban Missile Crisis. But who knew that the X-Men mutants were part of that American history?

The beauty of the new "X-Men: First Class" is its clever interweaving of fact and fiction. The film is grounded in realism which makes the spectacle more believable. By infusing real history into the origins of the "X-Men," the franchise is reinvigorated in a very big way. Read More...

Are You Ready for "The Hangover Part III?" 

So, "The Hangover Part II" broke box-=office records over Memorial Day Weekend, so it's no surprise that Warner Bros. is moving forward with the threequel!

The studio has hired Craig Mazin to write the third "Hangover" film. he co-wrote the second movie with Scot Armstrong and director Todd Phillips.

Once upon a time, Mazin wrote 2003's "Scary Movie 3" and 2006's "Scary Movie 4." With his "Hangover" cred, Mazin has definitely come a long way.

So the new "Hobbit" movies will be called "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again." Divided into two parts, Warner Bros. has announced the titles and release dates of the Peter Jackson adaptations of the J.R.R. Tolkien's classic.

Part 1 aka "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" will debut on December 14, 2012. Part 2 aka "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" will premiere on December 13, 2013.

Save the dates!

Here's the full press release:


First film slated to open on December 14, 2012 and second film to be released on December 13, 2013

New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM have announced the titles and release dates for filmmaker Peter Jackson’s two-film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit. The first film, titled “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” will be released on December 14, 2012. The second film, titled “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” is slated for release the following year, on December 13, 2013.

Both films are set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” The adventure of “The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug.

Under Jackson’s direction, both movies are being shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. Filming is taking place at Stone Street Studios, Wellington, and on location around New Zealand.

Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, the character he played in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, and Martin Freeman, who just won a BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the BBC series “Sherlock,” takes on the central role of Bilbo Baggins. Also reprising their roles from “The Lord of the Rings” movies are: Cate Blanchett as Galadriel; Orlando Bloom as Legolas; Ian Holm as the elder Bilbo; Christopher Lee as Saruman; Hugo Weaving as Elrond; Elijah Wood as Frodo; and Andy Serkis as Gollum. The ensemble cast also includes (in alphabetical order) Richard Armitage, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, and Aidan Turner.

The screenplays for “The Hobbit” films are by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson. Jackson is also producing the films, together with Fran Walsh and Carolynne Cunningham. The executive producers are Ken Kamins and Zane Weiner, with Philippa Boyens serving as co-producer.

“The Hobbit” films are productions of New Line Cinema and MGM, with New Line managing production. Warner Bros Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television licensing being handled by MGM.
