Following yesterday’s final trailer, two new X-Men: Days of Future Past featurettes have been released.  These featurettes go into the making of two specific scenes.  One featurette focuses on a last-minute addition to the movie where director Bryan Singer felt there needed to be a scene where Magneto (Michael Fassbender) retrieves his helmet, and the other featurette looks at the task of outfitting extras with custom-made 1973 outfits.  They’re both interesting featurettes because they show aspects of filmmaking that some people might not think about.

Hit the jump to check out the featurettes.  The film also stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer LawrenceNicholas Hoult, Patrick StewartIan McKellenEvan PetersEllen PageShawn AshmoreHalle BerryLucas TillOmar SyAdan CantoDaniel Cudmore, and Bingbing Fan.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D.

20th Century Fox has released a final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer for director Bryan Singer’s superhero “inbetweenquel,” and man does it have everything you could ask for in a mutant-mashup movie.  We get way more setup – along with a look at just how extensive and vital a role Wolverine plays in the plot – with plenty of superpowers on display, promising an action-packed payoff.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The trailer does a great job at summing up the premise, which highlights the caper aspect of the plot.  Its only downside is the poor choice of music; even Quicksilver looks good here!

Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg Talk X-MEN: APOCALYPSE; Will DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Alter the Timeline?

X-Men: Days of Future Past is still over a month away, but there’s no time to waste!  We already have to start talking about the sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, even though it doesn’t come out for over two years!  Director Bryan Singer and co-producer/co-writer Simon Kinberg spoke to EW about their plans for the film, and revealed that they will be taking elements from the 90s comic book series, Age of Apocalypse, but won’t strictly adhere to the alternate universe aspect of the story.  Kinberg explains that Apocalypse “won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with.”  Does that mean the time-travel in Days of Future Past might alter our reality to suit the needs of the new story, but not so drastically as to make the world unrecognizable?  Kinberg also goes on to say that “From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply.”  Disaster imagery?  In a superhero movie?  Ridiculous.  People would never go for that.

New Trailer and Poster for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, and James McAvoy

20th Century Fox has released a new trailer and poster for director Bryan Singer’s highly anticipated superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  This trailer is terrific.  It shows the darker tone that Signer mentioned, and the character drama looks as strong as the action scenes.  As for this new poster, it’s just awful.  If you’re going t o pay millions of dollars for a marketing campaign, perhaps it’s best to find a person who understands composition rather than making it look like Professor X farted an explosion.

Bryan Singer Says X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Will Take Place in the 1980s; New DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Images Released

Director Bryan Singer is returning to the X-Men franchise this May with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and audiences are apparently quite eager to see what the superhero team-up has in store.  Essentially serving as Fox’s answer to Marvel’s The Avengers, the film combines the original X-Men cast with the X-Men: First Class crew and involves time-travel, alternate timelines, and Sentinels.  While many are certainly looking forward to the film, Singer already has his eye on the next movie, as he’s currently breaking the story on the DOFP follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse.

Singer is attached to direct the pic, and in the recent issue of Total Film, he talked a bit about the sequel, revealing that it takes place mostly in the 1980s, deals with the notion of ancient mutants, and will have “more mass destruction” than any X-Men film to date.  Hit the jump to read on and to check out a new gallery of images from Days of Future Past.

Bryan Singer Will Direct Vince Gilligan’s CBS Pilot BATTLE CREEK

Though filmmaker Bryan Singer is decidedly busy putting the finishing touches on this summer’s highly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past, it appears that he’s carving some time out of his schedule to direct a high-profile TV pilot.  Singer is now onboard to take the helm of the pilot for Battle Creek, an impending CBS series that hails from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, who actually first wrote the pilot for the network back in 2002 before they passed on the project.  When Gilligan came off the wild success of sticking the landing of Breaking Bad, the network magically rediscovered the project (which they still owned) and put it back into active development with a straight-to-series order.

Hit the jump for more on Battle Creek, Singer’s involvement, and how hands-on Gilligan will be with the new show.

Director Bryan Singer has unveiled a new trailer (kind of) for the upcoming superhero pic X-Men: Days of Future Past.  There’s a caveat in that the trailer is only seven seconds long, but it does offer quick glimpses of most of the future-set mutants from the film, including Colossus, Warpath, and more.  For those unaware, the story finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.

TOP 5: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Set Visit, POMPEII Interviews, FANTASTIC FOUR Casting, Toy Fair 2014

Landing just outside of this week’s Top 5 and earning an opening paragraph mention as a result is the first trailer and poster for writer/editor/director Ti West‘s The Sacrament. Obviously inspired by 1978′s Jonestown Massacre, the film features a team of journalists who attempt to document the story of a seemingly peaceful religious commune only to have the proverbial shit hit the fan in the process. I think West is among the best working directors in terms of creating and maintaining terror as evidenced by both 2009′s The House of the Devil and 2011′s The Innkeepers. Each of those films expertly sustain a sense of dread throughout and if Gene Jones hauntingly daring the visiting journalists to “Take it…” in this first trailer is any indication, The Sacrament looks to be cut from the same stellar mold. While it will be tough to match the psychological horror dealt out by 2011′s cult-centric drama Martha Marcy May Marlene, I’ll be anxiously anticipating West’s latest up until the time it hits VOD on May 1st.

Transitioning to the list section of the feature, this week’s installment highlights the first trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Steve’s set visit coverage for X-Men: Days of Future Past, interviews for and Matt’s review of Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Pompeii, casting news for Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot, and coverage from the floor of Toy Fair 2014 at the Javits Center in NYC. Keep reading for a quick recap and link to each of the above.

90 Things to Know about Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST from Our Set Visit

Last August, when director Bryan Singer was busy filming X-Men: Days of Future Past in Montreal, FOX invited a few online reporters to visit the set.  As someone that grew up reading X-Men comics, and remembers being captivated by Chris Claremont’s Days of Future Past storyline in X-Men #141 and #142, getting to see this story come to life was an amazing experience and one I’ll never forget.  For those not familiar with the story, the movie finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The film also takes place in the future, so we’re going to see the original X-Men cast and what will happen if Wolverine fails.  Trust me, Days of Future Past is a very cool storyline, and a perfect way to have the old and new cast in one film.

While on set, I got to participate in group interviews with the cast and filmmakers.  While everyone was careful not to reveal any major spoilers, they did provide us with a ton of interesting behind-the-scenes information and a lot of details about the film.  So if you’re looking forward to X-Men: Days of Future Past, hit the jump for my list of 90 things to know about the film.  The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Evan Peters, Lucas Till, Evan Jonigkeit, Josh Helman, Adan Canto, Anna Paquin, Booboo Stewart, Daniel Cudmore, Omar Sy, and Bingbing Fan.

Director Bryan Singer Talks Bringing Back the Original Cast, Sentinels, Shooting in 3D, Time Travel Mechanics, and More on the Set of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Bryan Singer doesn’t get enough credit for the popularity of comic book movies around the world.   About 15 years ago, before Marvel was MARVEL, and before movie studios announced release dates for superhero movies years in advance, Singer was directing his fourth feature–a modestly budgeted movie called “X-Men“.  At the time, movie studios weren’t making tentpole superhero movies, and the ones that were being made treated the genre like a joke (e.g. Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin).  But Singer changed that.  He created a world with interesting characters that dealt with real-world problems.  He also was able to update the civil rights message of the original X-Men comics and reapplied it to current discrimination against homosexuals.  Singer showed what the genre was capable of, and for that I will forever be grateful.

Now that you know how I feel about the X-Men movies and Singer, you can imagine how excited I was when 20th Century Fox invited me to visit the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past when the production was filming in Montreal last August.  During a break in filming a very cool plane sequence featuring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman, I was able to participate in a group interview with Singer.  He talked about bringing back the original cast, time travel, how he was directing another X-Men movie, the Sentinels, casting Peter Dinklage, easter eggs, and so much more.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.   X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.

Bryan Singer Talks MAN OF STEEL and How He Would Change SUPERMAN RETURNS; Was Thinking Darkseid for Sequel

by     Posted 75 days ago

bryan-singer-superman-returns-sequel

Last summer’s Man of Steel brought a new take on Superman to general audiences, and in the wake of the film’s massive level of destruction and violence at the hands of Superman, it’s hard not to think at least some of that was a reaction to 2006’s Superman Returns.  Fresh off the immense success of X-Men and X2, filmmaker Bryan Singer was tasked with rebooting the Superman franchise and he chose to make a film that was directly tied to Richard Donner’s original Superman film and its sequel.  The result was a surprisingly low-key superhero movie with a romantic bent, and many fans expecting the same level of excitement from Singer’s X-Men films were disappointed to see that Superman never even hit another person in Superman Returns.

Singer is returning to the superhero genre for the first time since Returns with this May’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, and in a recent interview the director talked about what he may have done to make Superman Returns more palatable in hindsight and discussed his plans for the sequel that never was.  He also revealed his thoughts on Man of Steel.  Read on after the jump.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is still four months away, which means it’s already old news.  Time to move on to the shiny, new thing in the distance: X-Men: Apocalypse.  A couple months ago, director Bryan Singer announced the sequel featuring the eponymous foe, and earlier this month said that the picture would address mutant origins and how “we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and powers.”  In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Singer expanded on his thoughts for Apocalypse, and along with screenwriter Simon Kinberg, explains how it will relate to Days of Future Past.

With a series of twenty-five covers, Empire Magazine had a huge X-Men: Days of Future Past blow-out for their latest issue, and it provided plenty of interesting tidbits about the upcoming film.  A couple months ago, we reported that Rogue (Anna Paquin) wouldn’t be making the movie’s final cut.  At the time, director Bryan Singer said, “Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous.  It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go.”  Rogue is still featured on one of the twenty-five covers, and Singer tells Empire that “It does not mean that we won’t see her in the film,” and he hopes “to make the sequence available on the DVD as she was quite wonderful in it. She is an important part of the X-Men family.”
