The Daily Heat Index: Olivia Munn Talks the Four Horsemen of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’
Plus, prepare to meet your new robot overlords, and we watch some manly NFL players channel their inner ‘pretty little liar.’
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
The Origins of the Four Horsemen
We’re still a few months shy of X-Men: Apocalypse‘s May release, but new info has come to light regarding just how big bad Apocalypse will recruit his four loyal followers. While we learned that Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Angel (Ben Hardy) are the first and last to join, respectively, it’s Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) who are almost seduced into joining this cult-like cadre of henchmen when they’re at the lowest points of their life.
“That’s the amazing thing about cult leaders. They can really see when people are weak and how to prey on that and capitalize on that,” Munn said in an on-set interview with ScreenRant. “You see that with Magneto and Storm and Angel and myself. We all are in a place where we’re really needing somebody to come in and say, ‘This is the way.'”
Sounds like it’s going to be hard to pry these four away from the man hellbent on destroying the world. We’ll have to see how things unfold once X-Men: Apocalypse takes the box office by storm on May 27, 2016.
Meet Your New Robot Overlords
Here’s a tip for the busy BDSM master who wants to streamline the task of keeping tabs on their naughty, pathetic, recalcitrant little sex slave: They can just download Life360, an app designed to help families keep in contact.
That’s just one of the handy takeaways of Dark Net, a creepy new Showtime doc series premiering Thursday that’s a real-life version of our favorite future-shock horrorshow Black Mirror. Produced by Vocativ, a media company that mines the “deep web” for trends, news and data, it’s a must-see for anyone who is cheerfully trading their freedom, privacy and humanity for the convenience and fun of the latest high tech toys. That means you, fella.
Not-So-Pretty Little Liars
Because the NFL season has come to an end for most teams, players have some free time to hang out, relax, and in this case, re-enact some classic scenes from Pretty Little Liars. QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Prince Amukamara threw on some ratty wigs and stopped by The Tonight Show to channel their inner Allison and Spencer in a very dramatic (and hilarious) fashion. Though the two seem pretty unaware of what they’re saying, we wouldn’t be surprised if these tough football bros actually watch the show… you know, for the pretty ladies.
