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 the first TV spot 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.  There’s a little bit in the way of new footage since there’s more finished VFX to show off, and it looks good.  There will be no shortage of mutant carnage.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

by     Posted 277 days ago

comic con the following

After a tense recap clip of the death and drama filled end of season one, The Following panel got underway, promising an eerie future for what remains of the cast.  Moderated by TV Guide’s Debra Birnbaum, the panel included EPs Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega as well cast members, Kevin Bacon, Valerie Curry, Shawn Ashmore, and surprise guest James Purefoy, who made a classic Joe Carroll entrance.

With the hype and success behind season one having been pretty spectacular for a mid season show, the pressure is definitely on the cast and crew of The Following to deliver with the second season.  Not many specific details were shared, but the cast did look back on some of the intense moments of the insane first season, and teased what they could about where the characters would be when season two kicks off.  Hit the jump for the highlights.

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.

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.

Bryan Singer Shares Image of Shawn Ashmore as Iceman in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Director Bryan Singer continues to share behind-the-scenes looks at X-Men: Days of Future Past as production on the superhero sequel begins in Montreal.  Last weekend, Singer shared an image of Patrick Stewart in full costume posing for a photographer, and today the director has unveiled a look at Shawn Ashmore’s Iceman also in full costume posing for pictures.  Combined with the Stewart photo, I think this gives us a good idea of what the future-set costumes will look like in the film, and I dig the design.  Ashmore has tracking dots on his face as well, which will likely be used to recreate his likeness in scenes that necessitate CG.  As filming has now begun, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of teases Singer offers on Twitter over the next few months.

TOP 5: OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL Set Visit, Duncan Jones Directing WORLD OF WARCRAFT, JACK THE GIANT SLAYER Set Visit, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Sundance 2013 Wrap-Up

Prior to last Sunday, Zero Dark Thirty was my favorite pic of 2012 by a considerable margin. However, after my matinee viewing of Silver Linings Playbook, that margin has been replaced with a draw. Whereas Zero provided me with a tension that left me on the verge of breathless at moments, Playbook‘s spectacular performances and head-on portrayal of mental illness and our ability to help each other cope/prevail proved not only hugely entertaining but also quite cathartic.

My 2012 movie scorecard aside, this week’s Top 5 includes our set visit coverage of Oz the Great and Powerful, Duncan Jones being tapped to helm the World of Warcraft movie, more visit coverage from the set of Jack the Giant Slayer, a slew of news from X-Men: Days of Future Past, and a Sundance 2013 wrap-up. A brief recap and link to each of the above is promised after the jump.

From show creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries), the dark, fast-paced thriller The Following is an epic story of good versus evil, as told through the eyes of ex-FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), who is forced to return to the case that destroyed his career, when it becomes evident that notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) is at the center of a cult of like-minded killers who have created an insidious web of blood and carnage.  With Hardy’s help, a team of agents, including Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) and cult specialist Debra Parker (Annie Parisse), attempt to unravel the deadly plot of murder before the body count rises.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, co-stars Shawn Ashmore and Annie Parisse talked about how they each came to be a part of the show, simultaneously learning about their characters in both the past and present, working on instinct, how excited they are to read each script, the respect that their characters have for each other, and how they hope viewers will enjoy the roller coaster ride.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.
