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.

French actor Omar Sy had a breakthrough role with the French film The Intouchables and landed the part of Bishop in the upcoming blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Now he’s joined another tentpole feature by signing on to co-star in the fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World.  Unsurprisingly, since we don’t know much about the plot, we don’t know much about his role, but it’s good to see another talented actor join the cast.  The movie also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.

Hit the jump for tweets from Sy and director Colin Trevorrow about the actor joining the film.  Jurassic World opens June 12, 2015. [Update: THR reports that Idris Elba and Jake Johnson have also joined the cast.] [2nd update: THR has quietly removed Elba from their listing of the cast members, and @slashfilm is tweeting that the rumor is "NOT true. I have this 100% confirmed".]

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Empire Covers – Part 5: Blink, Iceman, Bishop, Colossus, and Future Sentinel, Plus Check out All 25 Covers Together in One Image

x-men-days-of-future-past-sentinels-slice

The marketing blitz for Empire’s X-Men: Days of Future Past is now over, but the last five images might be the most interesting of all.  They feature Blink (Bingbing Fan), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Bishop (Omar Sy), Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) and our first look at the future Sentinel.  Blink has quite a bit more clothing than her comicbook counterpart, though the same could be said for Iceman.  Ashmore and Sy looked like they couldn’t care less about their pose (Is Iceman conjuring an ice-walker?), but thankfully Cudmore is getting into character.  The real curiosity here is the new Sentinel, which looks as if it’s part G.O.R.T. from The Day the Earth Stood Still and part Dementor from the Harry Potter series.  Not sold on that version just yet.

Hit the jump to check out the covers, and click here for Part 1, here for Part 2, and here for Part 3, and here for Part 4.  The film also stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 3D on May 23rd. 

New Images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Starring Hugh Jackman, Omar Sy, and Jennifer Lawrence

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.

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.

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

by     Posted 275 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.

By now you probably know that almost the entire cast of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past surprised Comic-Con attendees today.  Just prior to their Hall H appearance, the cast members participated in what might be a Guinness World Record for press conferences.  Attending were director Bryan Singer, writer Simon Kinberg, producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker, plus cast members Evan Peters, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page and Omar Sy.  It was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime event to witness all of that talent on one stage, although fans will be privy to the experience once X-Men: Days of Future Past hits screens May 23, 2014.  Hit the jump for highlights from the press conference.

Scarlett Johansson Joins Robert Downey Jr. in Jon Favreau’s CHEF; John Wells’ CHEF Fights for the Title

The Iron Man 2 gang is getting back together for what will hopefully be a better movie than Iron Man 2Variety is reporting that Scarlett Johansson will reunite with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau for Favreau’s indie film, Chef.  The story centers on a man (Favreau) who loses his chef job and starts up a food truck to reclaim his artistic promise and reclaiming his estranged family.  As we previously reported, the film will have a strong supporting cast with Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, and Bobby Cannavale on board to co-star.  I’m happy to see Favreau returning to his indie roots (although in this case “indie” simply means it doesn’t have the gigantic budgets of his recent films), and heading back into a leading role.  He’s so money and he knows it.

But the movie is in for a fight over the title as Sony Pictures, which owns John WellsChef starring Bradley Cooper, has sent a cease and desist letter to coax Fairview Entertainment and Favreau to find another title.  Hit the jump for more including possible co-stars for Wells’ Chef.
