TRAILER: ‘X-Men Dark Phoenix’ Looks To Be An Uncanny X-Citement!

Published

on

X-tra, x-tra! Read all about it! The latest installment in the X-Men film franchise looks to be the most dramatic yet! If you are a fan of the beloved comic book series then you already know that the Dark Phoenix saga is one of the most pivotal moments in X-Men history…and if you are not a fan, you’ll understand why I haven’t invited you to be a part of my matching latex gang.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix takes place after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, the film in which Professor Charles Xavier convinces fellow telepath, Jean Grey, to unleash her full potential to help defeat the film’s villain. It looks like the consequences of this evolution in power come to fruition in Dark Phoenix as Jean Grey becomes unstable…and unstable is an understatement. In the trailer the telekinetic telepath reveals that she is experiencing all of the pain, rage and suffering of her teammates which proves to be overwhelming to say the least. The added influences in her mind cause Jean to become the Dark Phoenix, one of the most devastating enemies the X-Men have ever encountered.

The trailer also shows the deteriorating relationship between the gaggle of mutants and their leader Professor Charles Xavier. Xavier used his telepathic powers to restrain Jean’s potential for most of her life. It wasn’t until he needed her help to defeat Apocalypse that he he lifted those restraints. When the rest of the team finds out how their leader has manipulated their fellow teammate, there’s a bit of mutiny….or should I say mutant-ny.

All of our favorites will be reprising their roles for the latest installment. James McAvoy is back as Professor Xavier, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast and Tye Sheridan as Cyclops.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix hits theatres on February 14th! Check out the trailer below!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
