Hugh Jackman Teases X-men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3

16 December 2014 12:35 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Bryan Singer and his creative team are currently prepping for production on X-Men: Apocalypse. The movie is going to bring several of the First Class and Days of Future Past cast members back together for more action along with younger versions of other characters like Cyclops and Jean Grey. So what about the involvement of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine? There has been a lot of speculation that he could be in the film, but there's been no confirmation. 

Jackman talked a little big about what's going on in an interview the Happy Say Confused Podcast, and he teased it a little.

“I have been speaking to the guys, and I’m not at liberty to tell exactly what’s going on. Which is largely framing my answer here….But there’s still a lot unknown about that, actually. There are some very exciting things about integrating the whole X-Men world, »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' May Tie Into 'Wolverine 3'

16 December 2014 8:41 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Bryan Singer is currently crafting the story for his highly-anticipated sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, with Oscar Isaac already set to play the title villain. All we know so far about the story is that it's set in the 1980s and that it will end the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. During an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Hugh Jackman teased that his beloved mutant character Wolverine may be back for this 80s period piece, while hinting at plans for Wolverine 3, saying that everything will be integrated. Does that mean X-Men: Apocalypse will directly tie into Wolverine 3?

X-Men: Apocalypse - Hugh Jackman confirms discussions

15 December 2014 11:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wolverine may yet be back in X-Men: Apocalypse, as Hugh Jackman has been chatting about the character's movie future...

It's no secret that Hugh Jackman hasn't hung up his claws just yet, as he looks set to reprise the role of Wolverine on the big screen for the eighth time - and possibly the ninth. We already know that a follow-up to James Mangold's The Wolverine will be landing in cinemas in March 2017. But rumours abound that Jackman will be making another return in X-Men: Days Of Future Past follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse, which director Bryan Singer is putting together in time for a summer 2016 release.

So, Hugh Jackman, are you involved in X-Men: Apocalypse at all? "I have been speaking to the guys, but I'm not at liberty to tell exactly what's going on, which is largely framing my answer here", he told MTV. "But there's still a lot unknown about that, »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

8 amazing rock 'n' roll transformations: From Gary Oldman to Cate Blanchett

24 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All By My Side opens in cinemas today (October 24).

Andre '3000' Benjamin plays the iconic musician in the movie, which depicts Jimi's humble beginnings to becoming possibly the world's greatest guitarist.

This has inspired us to compile our own list of the greatest portrayals of musicians in rock 'n' roll biopics, often going above and beyond mere physical transformation:

1. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury

Andy Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his critically-acclaimed role - played to perfection - as charismatic '70s punk rock singer and songwriter Ian Dury in Mat Whitecross's 2010 biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

To portray Dury's physical condition - he contracted polio as a child - Serkis lost two stone and built up the muscle mass on the right-hand side of his body so the other side was weaker.

He added: "I had a body wax. It's the most »

Logan Lerman recalls going through the grinder of grueling 'Fury' shoot

17 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Ayer's "Fury" rumbles into theaters today. We've talked to Ayer, we've talked to composer Steven Price and now, one of the stand-outs from the cast, Logan Lerman. Lerman has been carving an interesting path for himself ever since he started in this business as a young boy. He debuted alongside Mel Gibson in 2000's "The Patriot," though most probably sat up and took notice in TV's "Jack & Bobby" or James Mangold's "3:10 to Yuma" remake. He's dabbled in franchise ("Percy Jackson") and sparked on the indie scene ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower"). This year he's in a pair of epic productions from Ayer and Darren Aronofsky ("Noah"). In "Fury," his character is very much the eyes through which the audience experiences the world of the film and he's a great anchor throughout. In "Noah," meanwhile, he's paired with Russell Crowe again after working with him in »

This Is Who Ruined The Wolverine.s Last 5 Minutes, According To The Writer

15 September 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Writer Scott Frank, whose eclectic resume includes Marley & Me and The Wolverine, has revealed that he despised the ending to the superhero blockbuster, before blaming 20th Century Fox for the way it concluded. While promoting his upcoming film, A Walk Among The Tombstones, with Screen Crush, Frank opened up about scribing the solo outing for Logan, revealing that he had never ever planned to write a superhero movie. After it was pointed out just how diverse his repertoire of films is, Frank declared: "That.s a weird credit, isn.t it? And Wolverine, too! I mean, I railed against superhero movies all the time and low and behold, I write one." Despite these protestations, it would appear as though Frank actually enjoyed his time working with director James Mangold on the epic... until the end. As it turns out, he isn.t a big fan of the way James Mangold »

Watch the new teaser trailer for Telluride entry 'Foxcatcher'

28 August 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As fully expected, Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" was on the Telluride slate when it was announced this morning. This marks Miller's second trip to the Colorado fest after 2005's "Capote," and that last time was kind of significant. Many will point to the 2005 Telluride program as a real turning point for its place in the Oscar scheme. In addition to "Capote," Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" came here (after premiering in Venice the day before), as did James Mangold's Johnny Cash biopic "Walk the Line." Suddenly the in-betweener slot made a lot of sense, and after that we saw "Juno," "Slumdog Millionaire," "The King's Speech," "Argo," "12 Years a Slave," etc., etc. Is this year's Best Picture winner on hand this time around? And will Miller's latest get as solid a boost out of the mountains this year as "Capote" did? Time will tell. For now, Sony Classics has made sure »

Miramax secures $250m re-finance

21 August 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Chairman Thomas J Barrack Jr said the movie reflected “stability and maturity” as top brass seek to grow the development and production business.

The securitisation included the issuance of a $250m aggregate principal amount of 3.34% of film library asset-backed notes offering due in 2026, as well as a $25m revolving credit facility.

It is understood the Santa Monica-based company has no immediate plans to use the credit funds until required.

“This refinancing reflects the stability and maturity of Miramax as an operating company and represents the next step in the company’s evolution,” said Barrack Jr.

“We appreciate that the market recognises Miramax’s quality of content, combined with the consistency, length, diversity and credit quality of contractual income streams, and we look forward to putting these additional funds to work as we grow new production in line with the powerful Miramax brand.”

Barclays served as the sole structuring advisor and sole bookrunner for the securitisation as well »

The Rover, 2014.

Directed by David Michôd.

Starring Guy Pearce, Robert PattinsonScoot McNairy and Tawanda Manyimo.

Synopsis:

10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves’ brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.

The title card tells us we’re in ‘Australia, 10 years after the collapse’. Guy Pearce’s Eric sits in his car, a nondescript BMW, as the wind outside howls through the open desert landscape. The world outside the car is desolate, dry, and dust clings to the window like a reminder that it will never go away. This, we will learn, is Eric’s sanctuary and safe place and there aren’t many of them.

When Eric leaves his car and gets a drink, another car loses control, crashes, and is stuck. The three men inside have guns, »
