Even Terminator Genysis director Alan Taylor thinks the marketing for his film crossed a line.

Mild spoilers for Terminator Genysis ahead. 

Speaking to Uproxx, Taylor said he was as surprised as we were when the latest trailer for Terminator Genisys revealed an important plot twist regarding Jason Clarke's John Connor.

"Yeah, it’s funny; I certainly directed those scenes with the intention that no one would know", the director said.

Update on Tatum’s Gambit/Ghostbusters

Classic Gambit fans will be thrilled to learn that Channing Tatum has reportedly been practicing card tricks for the role of Remy Lebeau in his upcoming X-Men spin-off film.

In an interview with Screen Rant, Tatum's writing-producing partner, Reid Carolin, revealed the 21 Jump Street star's very practical preparation for Gambit: "Last night, we were with my friend who I went to college with - this guy David Kwong, who is an incredible magician - and he was teaching Chan how to throw cards and do sleight of hand."

Carolin went on to praise Joshua Zetumer's script for Gambit (which is based on a treatment by co-creator and X-Men comics legend Chris Claremont), saying, "The script is really good...To be honest, I don’t watch big movies for pleasure a lot, but this script convinced me that we should be making this movie."

Nolan North May Have Outed The Last of Us 2

Voice actor Nolan North casually dropped word of a Last of Us sequel during a recent Q&A panel.

"For now, last one," North said on the video, when asked if he has any upcoming projects with Naughty Dog aside from Uncharted 4. "I know they're doing a Last of Us 2 but my character in Last of Us kind of had an untimely demise."

His answer was in the context of explaining why he doesn't have any other Naughty Dog projects lined up, so whatever scuttlebutt he's heard wouldn't have been inside information from a cast member. However, he's well known and connected enough to give his word some credibility.
