In this week’s Weekly Clickables, we have no theme, but instead a mix of essays and interviews you can really spend some time on, covering a breadth of subjects.

  • First, Brent Lang at Variety discusses why we’re ready for an R-rated X-Men movie.
  • Back in May, Angelica Jade Bastien at RogerEbert.com wrote about the legacy of Joan Crawford, which is pertinent to the upcoming FX show Feud about the famous feud between Bette Davis and Ms. Crawford.
  • Film School Rejects explain how a minor character from Taxi Driver inspired the iconic adrenaline-shot scene in Pulp Fiction.
  • At MTV.com, Inkoo Kang explores the surprising popularity and enduring appeal of Daria.
  • Finally, Gore Verbinski visited the IGN UK podcast and talked about his latest film, A Cure for Wellness, but also the demise of the nearly-produced BioShock movie.

That’s it for this week, folks. Check back next Monday for more of the best movie stuff from the rest of the Internet.
