The long rumored New Mutants film, based on the comic cousin of the X-Men where the mutants are primarily students who engage in extra-curricular superheroing, has just gotten the greenlight.

Today we celebrate the roses that grew out of a steaming pile of horse manure. It’s easy to bask in the accolades of a strong performance in an epic superhero flick.

But what about the people who rise to the occasion in a real stinker? Let’s give them their moment in the sun!
In case you missed it – we wanted to bring you the new Insurgent trailer that was released before the Superbowl. But for the life of me, I cannot understand what I am watching.

While some of you may be excited for the second movie in the Divergent series, I for one am not. I really loved the first two books, and the first movie for that matter.

What I do know, is that these new movie posters are awesome, and for that I say kudos! Check out each one in more detail after the break.
