Edge of Tomorrow uses Tom Cruise to cleverly riff on the 'universal soldier,' resulting in a movie that’s more exciting than Oblivion but not as funny as Groundhog’s Day. Based on the Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel “All You Need is Kill,” the film takes place after an alien invasion has begun expediently dispatching the earth’s population.

Edge of Tomorrow
It has a title like a soap opera and one of the world's last true action stars in the lead, but Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow looks like it might actually be a pretty diverting blast of thinking person's sci-fi.

The Wolverine
We've been taught to temper our expectations when it comes to seeing Wolverine on the big screen, but Fox really wants you to get excited about James Mangold's The Wolverine, and they've just unleashed the Comic-Con footage that's supposed to make it happen.

Jack the Giant Slayer
We knew the reviews were tepid for Jack the Giant Slayer, just as we knew it had already fallen out of the top 10 at the box office after only five weeks of release -- but now, thanks to the folks at the Hollywood Reporter, we're starting to get an idea of just how poorly it's performing for Warner Bros.

The Wolverine
Now that they've finished screwing around with the sadly requisite rounds of teaser trailer teasers, Fox has finally deigned to give us our first honest-to-Logan Wolverine preview, dropping 2:27 of action-laced goodness on the Wolvie-lovin' masses. In a word: Snikt!

Review: Jack the Giant Slayer (Jack is This Year’s John Carter)

X-Men provided director Bryan Singer a career expansion that’s finally imploded on him. The savvy he lent The Usual Suspects seems a distant memory in the face of his newest film, a remake of 1962’s cult-y Jack the Giant Killer. He preserves that film's awkwardness but not much else.

What Flop? 'Jack Reacher' Crosses $200M Worldwide Mark

Jack Reacher
For all that talk about disappointing grosses foiling plans for a franchise, it looks like Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher is still doing pretty well at the box office -- in fact, as Deadline reports, it just became Cruise's 19th film to break the $200 million mark.

New 'Jack the Giant Slayer' Trailer Emphasizes That Whole "Slayer" Thing

Jack the Giant Slayer
After a release delay, a title switch, and an underwhelming trailer, it seems more or less safe to assume that Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Slayer is headed for a chilly critical reception when it reaches the box office on March 1. But if you're still on the fence about whether to head out and see a revisionist take on the legend of a simple farmboy (Nicholas Hoult) who unwittingly reawakens a war between humans and their giant-sized, sky-dwelling ancient antagonists, Warner Bros.

Director James Mangold Talks 'The Wolverine'

The Wolverine
For one of Marveldom's most beloved (and seemingly cinema-friendly) heroes, Wolverine has had sort of a rough go of it -- while he appeared in the hit X-Men movie and its first hit sequel, he also had to suffer through the third X-Men, as well as the severely underwhelming X-Men Origins:
