8 New Posters for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender

Fox has released eight new posters for 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.  While not quite as bad as the most recent poster, these are still pretty awful.  If they’re not using the tired orange/blue color scheme, then the composition is haphazard, the titling is strange (I know Jackman’s name gets top billing, but it’s still weird to see it under Ian McKellen’s face), or the poster is just outright bizarre.  The strangest one is young Xavier reaching out to touch Storm’s face.

Halle Berry Talks FRANKIE & ALICE, Preparing for the Role, Her Reasons for Signing on to Steven Spielberg’s TV Show EXTANT, and More

by     Posted 21 days ago

halle-berry-frankie-and-alice-interview

It’s been a long road to theaters for Frankie & Alice. The Halle Berry psychological melodrama finished filming back in 2009. You might remember that it was briefly released at the end of 2010 for a qualifying awards run that never quite caught on. And then the film seemingly vanished. This Friday, four years later, Frankie & Alice finally gets a proper release in select theaters. It’s a strange film marketplace where even an intimate character drama starring and produced by a former Oscar winner struggles to find a foothold into theaters.  In the film, Berry stars as Frankie, a go-go dancer with dissociative identity disorder, who with the help of a benevolent doctor (played by the always great Stellan Skarsgård), attempts to confront whatever past misdeeds and/or tragedies caused the break in the first place. The film, an obvious passion project for Berry, deserves far better than its difficult ‘road to release’ would hereto suggest.

In the following interview with Halle Berry, she discusses her frustrations with the protracted release of the picture, her interest in telling the stories of real people and her move into television this summer (she stars in the Steven Spielberg produced sci-fi series Extant). For the full interview, hit the jump.

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.

Fox has released two new X-Men: Days of Future Past promo images of Storm (Halle Berry) and Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) in case you forgot what the characters look like or who’s playing them.  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.  I assume Fox is going to handle this like the Empire covers, so expect about 500 more of these.

Hit the jump to check out the images, and to learn why X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn didn’t return to direct the sequel.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd, and also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Patrick Stewart.

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.

Hit the jump to see some new footage.  The film stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Halle Berry.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.

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.

Halle Berry to Star in Steven Spielberg’s New CBS Series EXTANT

by     Posted 202 days ago

extant-halle-berry

Halle Berry is poised to make her television debut in a new drama series from CBS and Steven Spielberg.  The network announced today that Berry will lead Extant, which has been given a straight-to-series order from CBS and will premiere on the network in summer 2014.  The thrilling drama focuses on an astronaut returning home to her husband and son after a year-long solo mission whose experiences in space and home lead to events “that ultimately will change the course of human history.”

Mickey Fisher wrote the script, and the series order is for a 13-episode first season.  The network launched Under the Dome this past summer to stellar ratings (despite less-than-enthusiastic reviews), so clearly they’re hoping for similar success with the sci-fi-sounding Extant.  Spielberg and Fisher will serve as executive producers alongside Greg Walker, Brooklyn Weaver, Justin Falvey, and Darryl Frank.  Berry will serve as co-executive producer.  Hit the jump for the full press release.

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

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.
