We’ve got an exclusive new poster from X-Men and Watchmen writer David Hayter’s feature directorial debut, Wolves, to share with our readers today.  Hayter wrote and directed the horror film, which stars Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) as a young high school student who realizes that he’s slowly changing into a werewolf.  After the brutal murder of his parents, he sets off to uncover the truth of what he is, only to find there are many more like him—including a young woman named Angelina (Merritt Patterson).  The cast also includes Stephen McHattie and Jason Momoa, and this debut poster teases confrontation among the beastly creatures as well as some solid werewolf design.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Wolves poster.  The film will be released VOD on October 16th and opens in theaters on November 14th.

20th Century Fox has released twenty-three new images of X-Men: Days of Future Past character art.  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 art use the same images as the ones from the Empire Magazine covers we saw a few months back.  The only thing that’s different is that the backgrounds are different and the Empire text is gone.  There were twenty-five posters for Empire; the missing two from this set: director Bryan Singer (no surprise) and Rogue (slight surprise), although it looks like she probably has a brief cameo in the finale cut.

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.

Every hour on the hour for the next 25 hours, Empire Magazine will be featuring a character from X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Why twenty-five?  Because this is the 25th anniversary of Empire Magazine, and they’ve earned it.  Movie websites have come and gone, print has been eviscerated, but Empire still stands as one of the best resources for film fans everywhere.  If anyone deserves to inundate us with mutants and their foes, it’s Empire.  However, we’re not going to do twenty five articles on this.  We’ll be putting them into groups of five throughout the day.  First up, we’ve got the mutant hunting robot Sentinel, their creator Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), Havok (Lucas Till), young Toad (Evan Jonigkeit), and William Stryker (Josh Helman).  It’s worth noting that the Sentinel here is the Mark 1 from 1973, which is when most of the movie will take place.  Also worth noting is that Toad is the current frontrunner for goofiest costume.

Hit the jump to check out the covers, click here for Part 2, here for Part 3, and here for Part 4 and here for Part 5, along with all 25 covers in one image.  The film also stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Halle BerryX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd.

20th Century Fox has been releasing a few new images from X-Men: Days of Future Past, and they do a good job showing off some of the new costumes.  Whether these costumes are any good is up for debate, but Bishop (Omar Sy) has a cape, which is nice.  However, it’s tough to make out if he still has the distinctive “M” over his eye.  I would also say one of these images is a minor spoiler since it shows that two characters from X-Men: First Class will be having a somewhat rocky reunion.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore,  and Halle Berry.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23, 2014.

TOP 5: KICK-ASS 2, Rare Footage from Jerry Lewis’ THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED, Vin Diesel Voicing Groot in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?, PARANOIA, D23 Expo

by     Posted 1 year, 44 days ago

I hate to wish my life away, but with both The World’s End and You’re Next hitting theaters I really can’t help but look ahead to next weekend. That’s to say nothing of the pics opening this week (I plan on checking out Kick-Ass 2 next Wednesday), rather that the aforementioned two are a pair of my most anticipated of the soon-to-end summer movie season. In fact, You’re Next has been on my must-see list since Matt reviewed it at TIFF 2011 nearly two full years ago. In addition to the excitement associated with finally seeing the movie, my latent resentment of Goldberg for having seen it a lifetime ago will finally come to a close which is nice because I could use the sleep.

But enough about next weekend. Let’s focus on the here and now. This week’s Top 5 includes a slew of Kick-Ass 2 interviews, rare footage from Jerry Lewis‘s unreleased film The Day the Clown Cried, Vin Diesel all but confirming that he’s voicing Groot in Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, Paranoia interviews with Harrison Ford and more, and a recap of our coverage from Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim. As you might expect, a brief recap and link to each of the above can be found after the jump.

Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth, Amber Heard, Lucas Till, and Director Robert Luketic Talk PARANOIA, Real-Life Parallels, and More

by     Posted 1 year, 49 days ago

paranoia-harrison-ford-liam-hemsworth-slice

Director Robert Luketic’s high stakes thriller, Paranoia, explores a deadly world of greed and deception in which two powerful, dueling global tech billionaires (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) with a complicated past will stop at nothing to destroy each other.  An ambitious young superstar (Liam Hemsworth) becomes trapped in their dangerous game of corporate espionage only to realize that he’s in far too deep for them to let him walk away.  Opening August 16th, the film also stars Gary Oldman, Amber Heard, Lucas Till, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Richard Dreyfuss.

At the film’s recent press day, Luketic, Ford, Hemsworth, Heard and Till talked about updating the film adaptation based on the New York Times bestseller by Joseph Finder, what drew them to their characters, why the film’s underlying themes of connectivity, personal privacy and liberty are so relevant today, how the value of hard work has changed for the next generation, the complex relationship between ambition and morality, and their personal relationship with technology.  Ford also discussed going toe-to-toe with Oldman and why his character’s mantra of “competition breeds innovation” doesn’t apply to acting.  Read the full interview after the jump.

Always a nice casting report when you can open with Kate Winslet:

  • Kate Winslet and Judy Davis have signed on to star in The Dressmaker, a project that Australian writer/director Jocelyn Moorhouse (Proof) describes as “Unforgiven with a sewing machine.”
  • Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class), Joel Courtney (Super 8), and Ally Sheedy have signed on to star opposite Mitchel Musso, Bridger Zadina, Grant Harvey, and newcomer Dani Knights in Sins of Our Youth, the story of four teenage boys who accidentally murder a young boy.  Twin brothers Edmund Entin and Gary Entin will write and direct.

Havok’s Return Confirmed in New Image from the Set of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Though the film only has a couple of months left to shoot, it appears that director Bryan Singer has thus far managed to keep yet another cast member of X-Men: Days of Future Past a secret.  In the latest image from the set of the superhero sequel, we get a look at Lucas Till’s Havok as he is seen suited up in armed forces gear for the 1970s-set sequences.  Till appeared as Havok in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, but was previously not listed among the returning cast members for DOFP.  It’s probably just best to assume that anyone who has ever appeared in an X-Men movie will be popping up in Days of Future Past, save for January Jones apparently.  Expect much more about the film to be revealed at the pic’s Comic-Con panel on Saturday.

First Trailer for PARANOIA Starring Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, and Gary Oldman

paranoia-harrison-ford-liam-hemsworth-slice

The first trailer for Robert Luketic’s thriller Paranoia is now available.  It does a nice job at setting up the premise of the film but, as is the current vogue, gives an awful lot of the plot away.  Liam Hemsworth stars as a blue-collar pawn caught in a game of espionage between two kings of industry, played by Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford.  The plot thickens when the long arm of the law reaches out for him, forcing him to play by his own set of rules to survive the game.  This one should be on your radar if only to watch Oldman and Ford battle it out and to see how Hemsworth handles the lead.

Also starring Lucas Till, Amber Heard, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Domenick LombardozziParanoia opens August 16th.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Tom Hardy Eyed for Elton John Biopic ROCKETMAN; Lucas Till, Maria Bello, and Tom Everett Scott Set for STRINGS

by     Posted 1 year, 124 days ago

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share today.  First up, an unlikely actor is being eyed to topline the Elton John biopic Rocketman.  Commercials helmer Michael Gracey was tapped to direct the film this past March, and HitFix now reports that the project is out to Tom Hardy to take on the life of John in the film.  The pic is described as a “radically different” kind of biopic, as the story is told in a non-linear, hyper-visual manner complete with choreographed sequences set to John’s songs.  Hardy does not have an offer to star nor is he in formal negotiations, but apparently the Dark Knight Rises actor is being considered for the lead role.  Hardy has a knack for disappearing into all kinds of difference characters, and I would absolutely love to see him transform into Elton John for the unique-sounding Rocketman.

Back in November, we mentioned that Divergent was rounding up the likes of Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening) to star opposite Shailene Woodley in the Neil Burger adaptation.  Reynor just landed a lead in Transformers 4so he’s likely off the table, but newcomers Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class), Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) are now vying for the coveted role.  Lionsgate is hoping that the property will be the next Twilight and/or The Hunger Games, which is a reasonable goal seeing as the Divergent novels lift themes from both series.  Hit the jump for more.
