Critics are trashing 'X-Men: Apocalypse,’ read these reviews

While it hasn’t yet achieved the level of critical scorn of Batman v. Superman, X-Men: Apocalypse could be well on its way.

The latest in the superhero franchise is currently polling at just 49 percent on Rotten Tomatoes’ “splat-o-meter” (BvS finished at 27 percent). And the reviews haven’t been pretty, not by a long shot.

I'm sure Disney had already been considering it for a while but perhaps they're more serious about a live-action The Little Mermaid now that they've seen how interested the public is in their Beauty and the Beast.

If you weren’t aware Star Trek Beyond was coming to a theater near you this summer, you are now. Paramount’s made sure of that with an aggressive ramping up of their marketing efforts for the newest film about the women and men who boldly go to the far reaches of the final frontier. A fan event, a new trailer (that looks way more promising than the first teaser), a Comic-Con premiere announcement, and some posters have been among the studio’s efforts to get Star Trek Beyond some headlines this past week.

The latest: two more character posters, after yesterday’s reveal of one sheets for Bones (Karl Urban) and new character Jaylah, played by Kingsman: The Secret Service actress Sofia Boutella.

The next logical choice of character poster: Spock, along with one for Chekov, with the uniting visual theme for these posters: a massive swarm of what appear to be enemy ships.

Check out the new posters below:

'The Witch' star Anya Taylor-Joy isn't done freaking you out

Anya Taylor-Joy made a strong impression in Robert Eggers' fantastic The Witch as a teenage girl accused of practicing black magic in 17th century New England. Now the actress is back playing another misunderstood character: an artificial human who comes under review by a corporate risk-management consultant (Kate Mara) who must decide whether or not to terminate her following a presumably violent incident.

Here's another interesting thing about Morgan: it was directed by Ridley Scott's son Luke Scott (the elder Scott is involved as a producer), here making his feature directorial debut. Whether he's as talented as his famous father remains to be seen, but the trailer is a tantalizing, slow-burn piece of business that has me sufficiently intrigued. Check it out below.
