-And speaking of DOFP, Rogue actually hasn’t been cut out entirely. Brian Singer tells Empire magazine “It does not mean that we won’t see her in the film. Also, I hope to make the sequence [the scene that was cut] available on the DVD as she was quite wonderful in it. She is an important part of the X-Men family.”

A video post

Featuring vampires.

First we have the international trailer for Only Lovers Left Alive, the vampire movie from Jim Jarmusch starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton. It’s been a hit at film festivals. I believe this is being released in February in the UK and April in the U.S. (whyy do we have to wait so long? I guess I should be happy it got a distributor at all, though).

Next we have the teaser trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain, a tv show coming this summer on FX. The show is based on the book of the same name that GDT co-wrote with Chuck Hogan. The story is about a virus that turns people into ravenous vampires. But these aren’t the subdued, romanticized vampires that have become commonplace these days, these are more monstrous (think I Am Legend). I will see anything with Del Toro’s name on it, personally. This is the first teaser trailer, so not much happens.

Lastly we have an ‘on the set’ featurette from season 4 of Game of Thrones. We get glimpses of the characters and actors. I wish this was longer personally but I know they want to keep a lot of it under wraps.
