People rarely ask, “Why?” in horror movies. And they probably should. Some pretty crazy shit goes down at in these types of films, and we normally aren’t exposed to the motives of the killers or villains until far later in the canon.

Better late than never, say the producers of Leatherface, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel that will let us know how a little Leatherboy in 1970′s Texas became a LeatherMAN. And also why he’s running around killing these guys with a chainsaw.

What does this mean for the timeline of the franchise? Nobody could figure that one out. This thing has been spun and sequeled and rebooted so much that the timeline looks like a spider web. Let’s just pretend it’s a standalone prequel, beholden to nothing.

(The Wrap)

For those of you who can’t afford to pay first-class prices for your X-Men, help is on the way. Fox has given the go ahead for a sequel to last summer‘s mutant-filled prequel. And if my college education is worth a good god damn, it stands to reason that the only title that will make sense is X-Men: Second Class. Am I right?

In keeping with the second class theme, Simon Kinberg, the writer behind crap-tacular films such as X-Men: Last Stand and xXx: State of the Union has been tapped to write the script. That’s a lot of X’s.

But in all fairness, I probably should blame Kinberg for the way Last Stand turned out considering Brett Ratner was directing. Kinberg also penned the screenplay for Sherlock Holmes, which wasn’t a bad flick. So unlike myself as well as my immediate family, maybe there’s some hope left for this sequel. (Vulture)
