Bryan Singer has been active on Twitter ever since he began production on X-Men: Days Of Future Past two months ago. In today's tweet, he posted the following behind-the-scenes image. It appears to be a set-up for a speech from the Us President (Richard M. Nixon?), and the speech addresses an incident in Paris as well as facing "the gravest threat in our history". Could this be an attack from Magneto and his Brotherhood? Check out the image below, and speculate in the usual place. #xmen #DaysOfFuturePast pic.twitter.com/pZMvY5G4VM— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) June 18, 2013 X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore.

Director Bryan Singer is currently bringing together 20th Century Fox's two X-Men timelines as cameras roll on next year's time-travelling mutant epic X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the studio itself has bigger plans afoot, bringing in acclaimed comic book writer and producer Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) to serve as creative consultant as it attempts to replicate the success of Marvel Studios' with its own shared movie universe.
Of course, given the fact Fox only has the rights to X-Men and The Fantastic Four (which is being rebooted in 2015 under Chronicle helmer Josh Trank), the studio will be hoping that the uncanny world of the X-Men provides enough of a pool of heroes to spearhead this universe. Speaking to SFX (via ComicBookTherapy), Singer has spoken briefly about Millar's role, as well as his own plans to develop the X-Men universe which he launched himself back in 2000:

I have a problem. Every year, when it comes time for a large awards show (which in my mind includes only the Emmys, the Golden Globes, and the Oscars. Grammys are a waste of time, energy, and gold plating), I get angry. When nominees are released, I tend to read the first time through with an eye towards catching snubs, and much of my awards show commentary tends to be reduced to me screaming in agony, pleading to pop culture gods who refuse to heed my cries for a more just outcome. Awards show fury has become such an integral part of my pop culture calendar, I actually made one of my 2013 pop culture resolutions a promise that this year, I would be less angry. This year, I would respect that awards shows are imperfect creatures. This year, I would dedicate myself to appreciating the deserving nominees rather than swearing »

According to the Huffington Post: Everyone has an opinion on "Game of Thrones'" infamous "Red Wedding." We've discussed it here. You've discussed it out there. However don't ask Peter Dinklage what he thought of the bloody scene, because he recently admitted that he doesn't actually watch "Game of Thrones." He doesn't even have an HBO [...]
Right now, it seems like everyone has an opinion on "Game of Thrones'" infamous "Red Wedding," but don't ask Peter Dinklage what he thought of the bloody scene, because the star recently admitted that he doesn't actually watch "Game of Thrones" -- in fact, he doesn't even have an HBO subscription.
The Emmy-winning actor made the surprising admission to photographers in Montreal, per TMZ, pointing out that filming the series was "a year ago for me," so none of the revelations in Season 3's final two episodes were particularly shocking to him.
Dinklage wouldn't be the first actor who refused to watch his own show, although the lack of an HBO subscription doesn't seem to stop many avid viewers these days: The show remains the most pirated TV series on the web and HBO's programming president apparently isn't fazed by the news.

Bungie has revealed that actor Peter Dinklage, best known for his role on HBO’s Game of Thrones (which he is brilliant in, by the way), will be lending his voice to the studio’s upcoming game, Destiny.
“Peter Dinklage is the voice of the Ghost.” said community manager DeeJ. “As you learn more about Destiny, you just might be hearing more from him.”
For those who haven’t been keeping up with the E3 coverage, check out what DeeJ has to say about the character of Ghost below:
The Ghost is your interactive companion, he’s your partner, he’s your wingman. You’ll take him with you everywhere you go. A lot of Destiny is about going into these ruins of our lost civilizations and unlocking their secrets so that we can safeguard our future. The ghost is going to be a bit part of that. So when »

Watching TV is seldom a communal experience. So it’s always interesting in the spring — when networks and studios mount panels to promote their shows for Emmy awards consideration — to hear an unexpected sound during screenings of some of our finest dramas: Laughter.
It’s not new, naturally, but labels can have a way of muddling conversations, so it’s worth noting: Many dramas are flat-out funny. At the same time, a new breed of half-hour has sprung up that is, oftentimes, more dramatic than amusing.
Actually, the abundance of humor in what are generally referred to as “dramas” is a testament to the richness and diversity of the current TV landscape. And while awards like the Emmys can perhaps be forgiven for adhering to old labels, any avid viewer would recognize it’s difficult to neatly categorize such fare into a couple of columns.
Sure, we might lump “Nurse Jackie »

X-Men: Days of Future Past is well into production and we're here with the latest news and info on the upcoming mutant action flick: Patrick Stewart unveils some plot info, and also some new images have been released.
At Comicpalooza in Texas, Patrick Stewart, who plays Professor Charles Xavier, answered some questions about the upcoming X-Sequel, which he recently finished filming his scenes for. Stewart says that this will be “the X-Men movie of all X-Men movies!” Stewart himself was on set for five weeks, indicating that his character will have a considerable number of scenes. Stewart also promises that the script will logically explain how Xavier is once again alive-and-well after his ignominious and disappointing death in X-Men: the Last Stand. (The time-travelling/alternate future aspect of the story will probably explain the discrepancy.)
Wolverine fans will be happy to know that the clawed mutant also has a sizable role. »

The official ballots for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards are now available online, and while they won't tell us who's going to be nominated, they can tell us who won't be.
We scoured the ballots to dig up the notable omissions (if you were hoping for an Arya Stark nomination, better luck next year) and surprising inclusions (go get your directing nomination, Jennifer Love Hewitt!).
Every ABC Family original series (including "The Lying Game," "Baby Daddy" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager") is submitted for consideration as either Outstanding Comedy or Outstanding Drama except for the network's most outstanding show: "Bunheads." Huh?
Star Sutton Foster submitted herself in the Comedy Actress category, but "Bunheads" is otherwise Mia from the ballots (even in technical categories like casting, main title design and costume design).
Other shows completely out of contention are more understandable, though Starz's canceled "Boss" earned enough »

Directed by David Nutter.
Few things were going to top last week's Red Wedding, which featured the murders of Catelyn, Robb and Talisa, but, in a way, the season closer was more enjoyable. Mainly because George R. R. Martin wasn't crushing your hopes and dreams.
The aptly named David Nutter (seeing that episode nine was absolutely nutballs) returned as director in an installment that explored the importance of family within Westeros. Some dig family. Others...not so much.
...luckily for Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), his father, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), is in the 'dig' category. In a tense scene together, Tywin tells Tyrion he wanted to drown him in the sea when he was born. Whether this is because of Tyrion's deformities (Sparta-style), or that his mother died in childbirth, »

In The Fall, a police officer was shot dead in the back of the head in front of his son. In Coronation Street, Karl threw Sunita down the Rovers Return cellar steps and left her to burn to death while he escaped and then tried to pin the blame for the the fire on her, the monster. In Broadchurch, unacceptably, lovely Olivia Colman as DS Miller discovered during the murder investigation that that her dull, new-mannish husband was a homicidal paedophile. In The Village, set in Derbyshire circa 1914, John Simm wore a flat cap and a frown for hours, while Maxine Peake's pursed lips said: "Tripe me no skrikings, ain't our lives miserable?" Or however downtrodden rustics talked in »

‘X-Men Days Of Future Past’ is still shooting in the great white north with some exteriors going down. No matter how much Bryan Singer wants to disseminate information through his Twitter account exclusively: if you can see the sun, rabid fans can see you. Sometimes this can end up being disastrous (like how the ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ suit was manufactured in a way that spy cams made it look pink) to being pretty faithful for CGI effects, like when we got a photo of the Destroyer from ‘Thor.’
Granted there’s a photo of her almost sticking a straw up her nose, but she’s also standing next to a more period-appropriate woman of (natural) color who is her same height and build. »
Some days you just want to walk down the street in your bright-red wig and blue body paint without the whole world staring at you; if you're Jennifer Lawrence, you can get away with the first part, at least. Lawrence was recently seen on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past in her rather revealing "costume" for her shape-shifting character, Mystique. The body paint doesn't leave much to the imagination, which you can see for yourself in this new batch of set photos. Also appearing on set are director Bryan Singer and a mystery guest who some are theorizing to be the super-strong and bionically-enhanced Misty Knight. Also starring Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage and Evan Peters, not to mention returning franchise members Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, and Halle Berry, X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.

Here's a twist Game of Thrones fans probably weren't expecting: Peter Dinklage doesn't watch the show! The actor, 43, who stars as emotionally and physically scarred Tyrion Lannister on the HBO hit, recently told photographers in Montreal, "I don't watch the show." (Dinklage is in Canada filming X-Men: Days of Future Past.) "I mean, I don't have HBO," the casually dressed Dinklage, who has a baby daughter with wife Erica Schmidt, said in the short video, posted on TMZ. As for his reaction to the shocking "Red Wedding" episode, [...] »
There have been tons of bombshells on "Game of Thrones" this season ... but the biggest one yet -- Peter Dinklage says ... He Doesn't Watch The Show!!!!!Seriously ... Dinklage -- who plays scarred-up, drunken, whore-banger Tyrion Lannister on the show -- told photogs in Montreal he doesn't have an opinion on the infamous "Red Wedding" episode because "I don't watch the show."He also says he doesn't have HBO ... but c'mon, he Had to have been joking, »

Like “The Walking Dead” and “Downton Abbey,” the third season proved to be a breakout year for “Game of Thrones” from a commercial perspective. And now that viewers have had a chance to absorb last week’s events and turn their attention ahead, “Red Wedding” or not, there’s no reason to anticipate the honeymoon ending any time soon.
For whatever reason, the epic adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s books has fallen into a familiar pattern. (And if you’re not up to date, warning, Spoilers Ahead.)
As a colleague pointed out, huge events have taken place in the penultimate episode each year — the beheading of Ned Stark, the battle for King’s Landing, the by-now-infamous “Red Wedding” episode — followed by what feels like a palate cleanser, setting the table for the season to come.
Nevertheless, there was an awful lot to like about Sunday’s finale, almost all of it of a smaller, »
