The upcoming fairy tale adaption from Warner Brothers and acclaimed filmmaker Bryan Singer stars Nicholas Hoult in the title role alongside Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Eleanor Tomlinson. Jack The Giant Slayer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend—and gets the chance to become a legend himself. »

New stills from Bryan Singer's Jack The Giant Slayer have arrived thanks to Cbm. The quality of the pics is great, but the stills themselves are a bit boring and don't show any action at all -- kind of odd since they've already realeased a couple of action filled trailers. They do give us some better looks at the cast which includes Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Ewan McGregor. I guess we'll have to wait for the onslaught of TV spots that we'll see as we get closer to the film's March 1st, 2013 release date to see more action.

Speaking about his upcoming solo film Jackman had this to say about 'The Wolverine:'
Asked if he could give the magazine a scoop, Jackman said: "You want to get me into trouble, don’t you? [laughs] Okay, the movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it." 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' shoots next year, and will be released on July 18th 2014 while 'The Wolverine' July 26 2013. »

With Les Misérables about to hit theaters worldwide next week and the recent confirmation that he’ll be joining the cast of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Hugh Jackman has plenty of high profile work surrounding his next solo outing as his career-defining character, The Wolverine. Touted as a standalone film, the more we learn about the quasi-sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the more it seems to tie-in to the character’s past in the previous X-movies and potentially, the upcoming films.
Hugh Jackman, the poster boy of Twentieth Century Fox’s prized Marvel franchise, has managed to find his way into every X-Men movie to date, including X-Men: First Class with a brief cameo. Arguably a necessity and certainly an expectation of fans for the series, there have been the obligatory rumors ...

While many people are focusing their attention on Jack Reacher star Tom Cruise (and the vast difference in appearance between the actor and the character described in author Lee Child’s source novels), the more intriguing story (for us at least) is the return of Christopher McQuarrie, the Oscar-winning writer of The Usual Suspects and director of the 2000 film The Way of the Gun, which has since become a cult-favorite in certain circles of cinephiles.
McQuarrie’s resume has been pretty sparse since the 21st century began; his only film credit during the ’00s (besides Gun) was doing the screenplay for his friend Bryan Singer’s 2008 WWII thriller, Valkyrie, which is where McQuarrie first struck-up a working relationship with Cruise. During our interview at the Jack Reacher press junket in New ...

• Fox’s The X Factor is undergoing more judging shakeups. Although the reality singing competition added Britney Spears and Demi Lovato this season, judge L.A. Reid is departing the series following the finale.
• In the aftermath of the tragic Newtown, Conn., shooting, TLC wisely delayed the premiere of its one-hour special Best Funeral Ever. Can we rename TLC (The Learning Channel) to Nsc (Nothing is Sacred Channel)?
• The third season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, debuting March 31, will be bigger (and hopefully better) than ever. All of the 10 episodes will be a little longer than usual, and as co-showrunner Dan Weiss explains, “There’s almost another full episode’s worth of extra minutes spread across the season.”

The first time I watched a movie on a high-definition television, I thought I was going insane. The run time was the same, but everything seemed to be moving quicker and more unnaturally than the normal DVD and VHS speeds I was accustomed to. But when I pointed it out to a friend, he said he didn’t notice anything, leaving me alone with my conspiracy.
As it turns out, I wasn’t going blind. The pace I noticed was a result of higher frame rate, which has gained some mainstream attention now that "The Hobbit," filmed at 48 frames per second over the typical 24, has been released. Peter Jackson’s decision to up the technology for the trilogy has been controversial, inasmuch as reviews have been mixed and you can still see the regular frame rate at most theaters. (It continues to make a lot of money, though.)

Get ready to enter The Twilight Zone. Again. And possibly again, if the new movie in development happens. But that’s not the news today. Today’s news is that CBS TV has nabbed Bryan Singer (X-men, Usual Suspects, Superman Returns, X-men: Days Of Future Past) to develop, executive produce, and mayhaps direct a reboot of the Rod Serling fan favorite.
It’s still in the early stages, with CBS TV looking for a writer to bring it to the small screen and then the shopping it to a network process begins, which theoretically should begin and end at CBS, since they’re the one’s producing it and have the rights to the original show. That’s all there is for now, but expect further developments; you can bet we’ll be keeping an eye out for them.

The legendary anthology series The Twilight Zone is making a return to television under the direction of Bryan Singer, who did something similar this year with The Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane. Let’s hope his re-brandishing of The Twilight Zone makes it past the pilot stage, and becomes a worthy successor to the brilliant 1959 incarnation.
In terms of hosting, no one can come near the classic work Rod Serling did in front and behind the camera in the original incarnation, as evidenced in the two revival’s that followed in the mid-80s & early 2000s. It’s definitely way to early to guess who they have in mind to narrate the intro and outro’s, but they’ve certainly got their work cut out for them.
Anthologies are starting to become a hot commodity again thanks to recent hits on the small and big screen thanks to American Horror Story and V/H/S, »

I’ve always enjoyed the “Twilight Zone” TV shows, from the black and white original hosted by Rod Serling in the ’60s to the ’80s reboot to the 2002 version hosted by, of all people, Forest Whitaker. I’m not sure which version of the show it was (probably the 2002 incarnation), but there was a plot that ran through the entire season, involving an alien invasion, that gave the show a lot of pop. Anyways, it looks like CBS is interested in bringing “The Twilight Zone” back to TV, with none other than Bryan Singer in charge. The “X-Men” director has signed on to develop, executive produce and potentially direct the pilot for a new round of “Twilight Zone” madness. For those who have never seen any version of the series, “The Twilight Zone” was an anthology show, often with a sci-fi bent. Aliens, space, time travel, and other wacky things »
Although director Bryan Singer joined Twitter in June, he didn’t really start tweeting until November. But once he did, his tweets have earned gold stars from fans like us. We reported to you back at the end of October that the director of the first two X-Men movies was returning to the franchise to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past. Happily for us, he then started tweeting X-Men news. Take a look:
Well here goes. Beginning full prep on Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited!

Director Bryan Singer has signed a deal to develop, produce and maybe even direct a new television version of The Twilight Zone, not to be confused with Matt Reeves' proposed big-screen adaptation of Rod Serling's venerable classic weird anthology series.
The show is being made through CBS, which owns the rights to the series, but it hasn't been pitched — or even written — yet. In fact, a deal is still being struck with the Rod Serling estate, so it'll be a while before you get the chance to cross over into Serling's fabled land whose boundaries are that of imagination, yet also a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.
Singer is showing a fair degree chutzpah in taking on this remake, especially on the heels of his work on the recent reboot misfire known as Mockingbird Lane. The Twilight Zone has already been remade a couple of times, »
