New Trailer – X-Men: Apocalypse

The trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is finaly here! 2016 is already shaping up to be an amazing year in comic book movies. There is Deadpool in February, Batman V Superman in March, Captain America: Civil war in early May and now X-Men: Apocalypse in late May. Seriously what more could a fan want??

The thing that stands out the most to me from this trailer has to be Oscar Isaac. He is without a doubt one of my favorite actors and I have a feeling that he’s going to do an amazing job with this role. He has great acting chops and he has that gravitas that is needed to portray such a powerful villain. I really can’t wait for 2016 to get here already.

Director: Bryan Singer

Cast: James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne

Release Date: May 27th 2016

UFC Rankings Matrix – November 2015

Since I posted my last UFC Rankings in October there have been 4 UFC events, and 50 fights (including 2 title fights).

In the past month we witnessed the head-kick heard round the world as huge underdog Holly Holm knocked out, and dethroned arguably the biggest star in the sport in Ronda Rousey. We also saw the vicious Joanna Jedrzejczyk defend her belt yet again in another brutal yet beautiful performance on that same night.

There were also 3 smaller shows which featured some important fights between top contenders in the welterweight division. As well as a 3rd (and hopefully final) fight between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson. There was a good amount of movement in the rankings after a slow October, and things look to change even more after the next 4 shows scheduled for December.

Here are my UFC Rankings Matrices for November 2015:
