Two New Featurettes for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Starring Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence

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.

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.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Lands on EW Cover; Sneak Peek at New Clip Revealed

X-Men: Days of Future Past is starting to reach The Amazing Spider-Man 2 levels of over-promotion.  The movie is still six weeks away, but Fox is still doing their teasers-for-teasers thing by releasing a sneak peek of a clip that will air during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.  Unsurprisingly, the clip features Jennifer Lawrence being badass, and while I have no complaints about that, this is a 10-second preview of a clip that will be 60 seconds at most.  Additionally, Entertainment Weekly has given Days of Future Past the cover to the magazine’s “Summer Movie Preview” issue because up until this point, EW had not covered any movie that’s coming out this summer.

Hit the jump to check out the sneak peek for the clip and the EW cover. The film stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Evan Peters, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing FanX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.

New Images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Provide another Look at Beast and Quicksilver

On our recent “Most-Anticipated” article, X-Men: Days of Future Past landed on all three lists.  While I understand why some people are skeptical, I think all of the right elements are in place for a great superhero movie.  That’s why I don’t mind reporting on X-Men stories (even when it’s those blasted trailer teasers).  Today, two new images from the movie along with a magazine cover have been released online.  The magazine cover (for Premiere) is kind of silly since it looks like Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is about to stab young Xavier (James McAvoy) in the neck.  But it’s not even half as silly as Quicksilver’s (Evan Peters) costume.  I can’t get over how awful that thing looks.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Daniel Cudmore, and Bingbing FanX-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.

Ridley Scott to Next Direct PROMETHEUS Sequel for March 4, 2016 Release; Filming Will Begin This Fall [Updated]

by     Posted 24 days ago

ridley-scott-prometheus-2-sequel

When 20th Century Fox announced a glut of release dates last week, buried among the many superhero sequels and team-ups was an Untitled Ridley Scott Project dated for March 2016.  Scott has a number of projects on his plate at the moment, but many wondered whether this untitled project might be the Blade Runner sequel that’s been heating up over the past year, or maybe even the promised Prometheus 2.  Well it appears that the mystery has been solved, as The Wrap reports that the untitled project is indeed a Prometheus sequel.  Moreover, a new writer has been brought onboard and Scott is now eyeing a fall production start-date for the pic.  More after the jump.

[Update: Variety confirms that a new writer has been hired for Prometheus 2, but notes that it's unclear whether Scott will direct and that the film is still undated.  The Wrap's reporter doesn't appear to be disputing Variety's claims, so it's possible the initial story jumped the gun a bit. Hopefully more will be clear soon, but our original story follows after the jump.]

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.

First Trailer for Offbeat Sundance Comedy FRANK Starring Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, and Maggie Gyllenhaal

The first trailer for director Lenny Abrahamson’s dark comedy Frank has been released online.  The film stars Domhnall Gleeson as an aspiring musician who joins an eccentric band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank, played by Michael Fassbender.  The story is loosely based on Frank Sidebottom, as Fassbender sports an odd, large mask for the entirety of the film.  I caught the pic at Sundance and it’s incredibly weird, very funny, and oddly sweet.  Fassbender is excellent as the titular Frank, and Gleeson shines once again as the straight man opposite a bounty of strange characters.

A few new images from director Bryan Singer’s upcoming “inbetweenquel” X-Men: Days of Future Past have landed online.  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.  A few of these new images are high-resolution versions of previously released images, while a couple others are promo photos of Fassbender and Ian McKellen as Magneto.  All in all, this gives us a better look at the updated costumes that Singer has crafted, and the McAvoy/Stewart image is rather exciting.  With the summer movie season only a few months away, I expect we’ll see a second trailer for the film sooner rather than later.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Empire Covers – Part 2: Mystique, Beast, Quicksilver, Magneto, and Professor X

Empire Magazine has posted the next five covers their X-Men: Days of Future Past series.  These covers feature Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Professor X (James McAvoy).  Quicksilver is the newcomer among these five, and his costume is so, so very bad.  I understand the goggles are because someone who runs really fast wouldn’t be able to see without them because of the wind resistance, but on the other hand, it’s a fictional character and you can do whatever you want.  Also, if that’s how he dresses himself, his eyes are already shot.

Sundance 2014: FRANK Review

by     Posted 89 days ago

frank-slice

“He’s the sanest person I’ve ever met,” band manager Don (Scott McNairy) tells keyboardist Jon (Domhnall Gleeson) about their lead singer and songwriter, Frank (Michael Fassbender).  Frank wears a giant fake head that he never takes off.  Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank is a funny, warm, thoughtful story about crafting an artistic identity, and needing to seize on to someone else’s expression when you don’t have one of your own.  It also provides an insightful look at the fault in trying to forge an identity based on the acceptance of others instead of embracing one’s own oddities and shortcomings even if the world at large sees them as “insane”.
