In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and above all, how to embace life fearlessly. Rose Mary, who painted and wrote and couldn’t stand the responsibility of providing for her family, called herself an “excitement addict.” Cooking a meal that could be consumed in fifteen minutes had no appeal when she could makw a painting that mightvlast forever. Later, when the money ram out, or the romance of the wandering life faded, the Walls retreated to the dismal West Virginia mining town– and the family– Red Walls had done everything he could to escape. He drank. He stole the grocery money and disappeared for days. As the dysfunction of the family escaated, Jeanette and her brother and sisters had to fend for themselves, supporting one amother as they weathered their parents’ bettayals and, finally, found the resources and will to leave home.

Director Bryan Singer recently attended the San Pedro International Film Festival and opened up about his upcoming and anticipated film, X-Men: Apocalypse, revealing that it might be longer than previous X-Men films.
“The cut’s a little long right now, but I think it’s going to be a longer X-Men movie. The X-Men movies I usually I keep under two hours, but this one I may actually let be a longer movie because it’s a sort of a wrap-up of six movies. It’s kind of a wrap up of X-Men 1,2,3, FIRST CLASS, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, and there’s even a homage at the end, a scene. Its going to get spoiled because they decided to use it in the trailer which comes out in like six months, but it’s a really cool trailer. But it’s kind of a wrap up of six movies. So, it might run a bit long.”
Starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, Lucas Till, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Ben Hardy, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Munn, Lana Condor and Oscar Isaac.

As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
Said to be the conclusion of a trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Bryan Singer, hits theaters May 27,2016.
While the upcoming 24th James Bond film, Spectre is still about a month away, Daniel Craig, who returns as James Bond in his fourth film recently talked with Event about the film and what’s it been like.
“It’s getting easier because I’m doing less [stunt work]. I’ve got so many good doubles.”
Though he only has one more film left on his contract to do, he isn’t quite sure about his future in the series and whether he’ll stick around for more after his contract is fulfilled.
“I work myself to death… It’s getting harder. But such is life. I’ll keep going as long as I’m physically able. I’m contracted for one more– but I’m not going to make predictions. These movies don’t get made very often. It’s just the fourth time for me, a spit in the ocean. If you don’t get excited about making a movie of this size with this cast, with Sam Mendes.. then go home.”
In SPECTRE, a cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
Directed once again by Sam Mendes, SPECTRE is written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade. The 24th Bond film hits theaters and IMAX on November 6, 2015.
