20th Century Fox released a new clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards.  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 clip gives us a look at the advanced sentinels, but what’s really striking is how director Bryan Singer is using the mutant powers to create some exciting new set pieces.  It’s particularly cool to see Blink’s portal ability and watch Iceman finally ride an ice trail.

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.

Following 25 magazine covers featuring the characters, Empire has now released four new images from X-Men: Days of Future Past.  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.  As you can see from the image showing Wolverine, he still has his bone claws.  That’s because young William Stryker (played by Josh Helman) hasn’t started up the Weapon X program yet.  I like that consistency in the narrative, and I wonder how much Weapon X will come up in the movie.

It’s time for another round of “Teasers for Teasers” with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and it appears we’ll soon be getting our first official look at the Sentinels.  On his Twitter page, director Bryan Singer tweeted “Something BIG is coming Jan 27,” and it doesn’t get much bigger than the giant robots that are tasked with wiping out mutantkind.  Singer previously shared a set photo of a Sentinel, so we’re not in the dark as to their appearance, and hopefully we’ll now get to see them in action.  Additionally, the X-Men Instagram account says “A full day of #XMen surprises is just around the corner” so perhaps we’ll be seeing more than just Sentinels on Monday.

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for director Bryan Singer‘s sequel/prequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.  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.  This trailer is extremely similar to the footage they showed at Comic-Con this summer (right down to the Hans Zimmer score), which sent Hall H into a frenzy.  It does an excellent job of conveying the darker tone of the film as well as teasing the spectacle that will be on display, and I really can’t wait to see more.

Following yesterday’s teaser for the first trailer, 20th Century Fox has now released twelve new images from Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past.  In the upcoming sequel/prequel, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) has his consciousness sent back to 1973 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.  These images don’t give anything away, but I quite like them, especially the one where Xavier and Magneto are continuing to play chess even though their friendship has fractured.  It’s an obvious symbol, but still a nice one considering it’s the constant in their relationship.  And if that doesn’t do anything for you, there’s an image of Jennifer Lawrence being adorable on set.

Ellen Page Confirmed for Adaptation of INTO THE FOREST; Evan Rachel Wood to Co-Star

by     Posted 181 days ago

ellen-page-evan-rachel-wood-slice

Earlier this year, we reported that Ellen Page was attached to the small-scale post-apocalyptic tale, Into the Forest.  Patricia Rozema‘s adaptation is based on Jean Hegland‘s novel, which is about two teenage sisters who live alone in a remote part of the Northern California forest, miles away from any neighbor, when society unexpectedly collapses.  There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found.  The sisters are left to hope the power eventually returns as their supplies dwindle.  A press release now confirms that Page will star as well as produce, and Evan Rachel Wood will play her sister.  The brief synopsis in the press release doesn’t mention them being teenagers, but the 26-year-old actresses look just young enough to pull it off if the movie sticks to that aspect of the book.

Hit the jump for the press release.  Page will next be seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Wood’s new film, Charlie Countryman, will be in limited release on November 15th.

If you’re a gamer, you’ve probably heard of the BEYOND: Two Souls, the latest from the makers of the award-winning hit Heavy Rain.  Starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, the cinematic experience ushers in a new generation of interactive gaming.  Here’s the synopsis:

Jodie Holmes (Page) has always been a little different. Aided by scientist Nathan Dawkins (Dafoe), she discovers a connection to a mysterious entity called Aiden with incredible powers, setting off a thrilling, globe-spanning journey to discover the truth about who she is. Told in a non-chronological narrative, BEYOND: Two Souls takes players on a journey spanning over 15 years of Jodie’s life.  Experience the most striking moments of Jodie’s life as your actions and decisions determine her fate. Throughout this epic journey, Jodie will face extraordinary challenges against a backdrop of emotionally-charged events never before seen in a video game.

With the game being released this week on the PS3, a few days ago I got to speak with Page here in Los Angeles.  She talked about why she wanted to be involved, how much changed during production, what surprised her when she played it for the first time, and more.  In addition, for fans of the X-Men franchise, I asked her about making X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Hit the jump to watch.

Comic-Con: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Panel Recap; First Footage Revealed and Almost All the X-Men Unite on Stage

by     Posted 274 days ago

x-men-days-of-future-past-comic-con-slice

Part of me will always love the X-Men.  I watched the animated series when I was in third grade.  I became addicted to collecting the trading cards.  And while some can point to Blade as the beginning of the modern superhero movie, it didn’t truly begin in earnest until Bryan Singer‘s 2000 picture.  It’s not an incredible picture, but it’s satisfying.  The sequel, X2, is one of the best superhero movies ever made.  X-Men: First Class gave the franchise a fresh spark of life, and now it’s all coming together with X-Men: Days of Future Past.  We’ve been wondering if it’s too crowded, but perhaps the question we should be asking is, “Can you have too much of a good thing?”

Hit the jump for my recap of the panel, which included the premiere of the first footage from the movie.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 16, 2014.
