This week saw a number of sad losses in the entertainment industry. The singers of both “Louie Louie” and “Stand by Me” passed away this week, as well as Oscar-nominated screenwriter Don Mankiewicz, who was nominated for I Want to Live! Mankiewicz was the son of Herman J. Mankiewicz (Citizen Kane) and the nephew of Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve), and the father of John Mankiewicz (House of Cards). He was 93.
But perhaps most shocking was the loss of cinematographer Andrew Lesnie, who died suddenly this week at just 59 years old. Lesnie won an Oscar for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and he subsequently filmed all five of the remaining Lotr films and Peter Jackson’s King Kong and The Lovely Bones. Some of his more interesting credits are his work on Babe and Babe: Pig in the City. Lesnie’s last film however »

Hugh Jackman, you haven't aged a bit! The Australian actor, best known for his role as Wolverine, took to Instagram Thursday revealing a throwback to his younger self in a dreamy headshot. "This Guy!!!! I don't even want to think about how many years ago that head shot was taken. #ThrowBackThursday," the actor captioned the post. The dad of two is pictured looking enviably at a pic of his younger self with begrudging smirk. However, we're not so sure if we can grant this post as a throwback considering the handsome 46-year-old looks exactly the same—scruff and all! A real-life Dorian Gray, indeed. Fans chimed in on the post, sharing their thoughts about the pic. »
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set the CHAPPiE Blu-ray and DVD release date for June 16, 2015, or a little over a month from now. Those of you pining for the CHAPPiE Digital HD release will be happy to learn that it will drop three weeks ahead of its physical disc counterparts on May 26, 2015.
CHAPPiE comes from the mind of Neill Blomkamp who shot to fame with the immensely successful Sci-Fi thriller, District 9. For CHAPPiE, the story about a reprogrammed robot who begins to think for himself, Blomkamp reenlisted Sharlto Copley to star in the writer/director's third straight film, and paired him with Hugh Jackman and Dev Patel.
The estimated production budget for CHAPPiE was $49 million and the film earned just over $31 million in North America. Overseas interest helped ease the pain a »
Right around the time that Kingsman: The Secret Service was heading to theaters, director Matthew Vaughn was already talking about ideas for the sequel. However, the film had not yet proven to be a box office success. Thankfully, audiences turned out to see the fun spy adventure and just this past weekend, the film crossed $400 million worldwide. And The Wrap reports that was enough for Fox to officially start developing a sequel to the film that starred Colin Firth and newcomer Taron Egerton. However, at this time, it's not clear if Vaughn will be back in the director's chair since he has a lot on his plate for the future. Vaughn was just recently lined up to direct a new take on Flash Gordon, also set up at 20th Century Fox, and he's also involved with the Olympic biopic Eddie the Eagle, which also stars Taron Egerton, this time teamed up with Hugh Jackman. »

Last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past did a spectacular job of essentially rebooting the X-Men franchise, while still meshing the casts of the original trilogy from director Bryan Singer, and the new cast from X-Men: First Class. However, now that there's a new past timeline intact, it sounds like the old one might be coming to an end for good this time. El Mayimbe, the scoopmaster formerly of Latino Review, posted a juicy rumor to Instagram saying that X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 will be the final films to have ties to Bryan Singer's X-Men universe, and everything from now on will concern the X-Men: First Class team. Here's what El Mayimbe posted on Instagram to reveal the rumor: #Rumor I'm being told that X-men: Apocalypse & Wolverine 3 will mark the end of the Bryan Singer X-men universe he started back in 2000. Makes sense since Hugh Jackman also said Wolverine »

Not only did Harvey Weinstein‘s “Finding Neverland” fail to be nominated for best musical, the show’s stars Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer were also ignored by the Tonys. Few pundits expected “Neverland” to be cited, but Morrison being left off the list was a shocker. He joins an illustrious group of TV and movie stars this season who have no chance of bringing a Tony home on June 7. Those snubbed include Michael Cera (“This Is Our Youth”), Glenn Close (“A Delicate Balance”), Tyne Daly (“It Shoulda Been You”), Larry David (“Fish in the Dark”), Vanessa Hudgens (“Gigi”), Hugh Jackman (“The. »

Past winners Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming will host the 2015 Tony Awards airing June 7 on CBS. Chenoweth is a nominee this year for "On the Twentieth Century" as Best Actress in a Musical. Cumming recently reprised his Tony-winning role in "Cabaret" and has CBS connections with his regular job on "The Good Wife." Other names rumored as possibilties to host this year had been previous champ James Corden ("Late Late Show"), Stephen Colbert (upcoming host of "Late Show"), and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). Neither of the most recent emcees -- Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris -- were expected to return this time. E!

After directing three X-Men movies and producing four, X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 could mark the end of Bryan Singer’s X-Men universe. The news comes from El Mayimbe who posted the following on Instagram: #Rumor I'm being told that X-men: Apocalypse & Wolverine 3 will mark the end of the Bryan Singer X-men universe he started back in 2000. Makes sense since Hugh Jackman also said Wolverine 3 will be his last film playing Logan. The end of an era. Does that mean it's the end of Singer’s involvement in the film franchise or will Fox do a complete overhaul after those two films? We can’t be sure unless El Mayimbe clarifies, but it seems far more likely that it's only Singer who is out, especially after the studio just recruited a whole batch of up-and-comers to play young versions of some very familiar mutants. We know that The Wolverine 3 will mark »

X-Men Days of Future Past wiped most of Bryan Singer‘s X-Men universe slate clean. He’s now filming X-Men: Apocalypse, which has recast younger versions of many of the mutants who feature in his early movies. After that, the next Wolverine film will likely be the last time Hugh Jackman puts on the adamantium claws. Do you see a […]

Big things are in store for the X-Men film series in the coming years. 2016 will not only see the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, but also the new spinoffs, Deadpool and Gambit. Wolverine 3 follows in 2017, and is said to be Hugh Jackman.s last time playing the character. While this is certainly exciting for many fans, next year could also be the end of another era. Entertainment writer El Mayimbe (formerly of Latino Review) posted a rumor on Instagram that X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 will mark the end of the X-Men film universe that began back in 2000, and that director Byan Singer is leaving the franchise. What.s unclear is whether this simply means that Singer won.t be contributing creatively to the series anymore, or if another massive continuity shift will occur. The post also states that Wolverine 3 will indeed be Jackman.s last outing as the ferocious mutant, meaning »
When you pause to consider that X-Men: Apocalypse is arriving off the back of the time-hopping, genre-bending Days of Future Past, one thing that becomes immediately clear is that, if Bryan Singer really is to top last year’s success story – DoFP stands as the highest-grossing entry into the franchise – then Apocalypse is truly set up to be a colossal undertaking.
However, a rumor doing the rounds earlier this morning hinted that next year’s installment in the superhero franchise may act as Singer’s last hooray in the X-Men universe, with both Apocalypse and James Mangold’s The Wolverine sequel shutting the book on a legacy that the acclaimed director started all the way back in 2000.
First picked up by Internet sleuth Umberto Gonzalez, the following tidbit ought to be strictly filed in the rumor cabinet, with no word yet from either Singer himself or Fox.

Last week at CinemaCon, I landed a few minutes with Nicholas Hoult on the red carpet before the Warner Bros. presentation. He was in Las Vegas to help promote George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. As you’ve seen in the trailers, Hoult looks to have undergone a great transformation for the film, and I’m counting the days to seeing the finished film. During the brief interview he talks about if he’s seen director Drake Doremus’ Equals, the worst job he’s ever had, if he’s seen the finished version of Mad Max, his reaction to reading the X-Men: Apocalypse script, his thoughts on Hugh Jackman leaving the X-Men franchise, and more. Here’s what he had to say followed by the time index. Apologies for the sound quality.

New York (AP) -- The musicals "An American in Paris'' and "Fun Home'' each received a leading 12 Tony Award nominations on Tuesday, showing two very different sides of this Broadway season. One side is sunny -- the dance-heavy stage adaptation of the 1951 musical film with George and Ira Gerswin songs, and the other moody -- the dark show based on Alison Bechdel's coming of age graphic novel about her closeted and suicidal dad. "It's nice to know if something's good, there's room for it,'' said Max von Essen, who earned a nomination for featured actor in a musical in "American in Paris.'' "There's room for a smaller, darker piece and there's room for a big, show-stopping revival show with Gershwin.'' Michael Cerveris got one of the dozen nods for "Fun Home,'' as best leading actor in a musical, and hopes that will attract more people »

Hollywood is all about shared, expanding universes right now. If you want a promotion, just be sure to package something that involves sequels, spinoffs, and stories told in continuing chapters, and you'll be sure to please executives looking to produce movies that make the kind of money to keep them employed. With that in mind, this next rumor is a bit interesting. Former Latino Review reporter Umberto Gonzalez is hearing that "X-Men: Apocalypse" will be "the end of the Bryan Singer X-Men universe." Now, there's a couple of ways that could be interpreted. Does that mean it's the end of Singer's fifteen-year involvement with the series that started in 2000? That would make a lot of sense. Does that mean Fox will reboot everything following 'Apocalypse'? That's the bigger question. "The Wolverine 3" in 2017 will be Hugh Jackman's last time as Logan — if his cry wolf antics are actually for real »
