A young woman, Therese Belivet (Rooney Mara), is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol Aird (Cate Blanchett), an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage to her husband Harge (Kyle Chandler) as he begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby (Sarah Paulson) come to light.
I’m not really sure why but all of the movies that I seem to look forward to are superhero movies and now is no different. A lot of trailers for the film Deadpool have been released so far but now the film’s second red band trailer has been recently released. This superhero film is unlike most superhero films as this one takes the whole concept in a darker, more adult direction. If the below trailer is any indication, this entry is not as wholesome with more violence, language, and sexual content. This is a departure from other Marvel films who tend to be more young-centered in order to maximize its fan base. I admit to not know much about the Deadpool story but from this trailers and others, there is definitely something here. It has the traditional Marvel-esque action and production value but its more crass nature make me excited to see it. I hope it serves as a redemption story for Ryan Reynolds as his previous superhero film outing, The Green Lantern, was terrible. Deadpool releases February 12th, 2016.

I’m a big fan of The X Files. It’s my favorite TV show of all time. I was sad that it ended back in 2002 but I was ecstatic when I learned it was coming back, albeit in a limited 6 episode run, back in January 2016. For those other than me who are wanting a sneak peak, a new 21-minute sneak peak has recently been released featuring interviews with cast members new and old. You got your David Duchovny, you got your Gillian Anderson, you got your Mitch Pileggi, and also many others. You’ll also get to see what it takes to make an episode and get to see creators taking about how the show and the characters have evolved over time. Enough talk, if you want to watch this, the video is below but beware for mild spoilers.
