Berlin: Market Forces Reshape Indie Biz — Again

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2016 European Film Market isn’t without star power. Richard Gere toplines the Protagonist Pictures-sold psychological drama “The Dinner,” from Oren Moverman; Adam Driver (Rylo Ken to “Star Wars” fans) stars in Jim Jarmusch comedy “Paterson” from K5 Intl.; James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander grace Wim Wender’s “Submergence,” from Embankment.

But as indie film execs are getting ready for the market, which runs concurrently with the Berlin Intl. Film Festival from Feb. 11 to 21, nobody expects to see a bonanza of English-language star-laden vehicles for sale.

“There likely won’t be a crop of bigger new movies,” says Im Global’s Stuart Ford. “There will be a few. But I don’t think we’ll see a sudden boom.”

Blame the market forces within the international indie biz. In 2012, multiple sales companies launched as institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals moved into independent film finance — and needed sales agents to match equity with pre-sales. »

Lots and lots of new pictures from the big upcoming X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Earlier this week, we had the Superbowl trailer for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, which is now just three months and change away from its cinema release. Bryan Singer is back, directing an X-Men film for a fourth time (including the most recent, X-Men: Days Of Future Past). We’re promised this time around that it’ll round out the narrative trilogy that kicked off with X-Men: First Class.

A new bunch of images from the film have just landed, and you can find them by clicking on the posh gallery thingy up at the top there.

Here’s the synopsis for the film, too…

Latest Batch Of X-Men: Apocalypse Images Send The Four Horsemen To War

8 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Magneto, Storm, Psylocke, and Angel tear earth asunder in the latest batch of images for X-Men: Apocalypse, which are essentially screengrabs lifted from the thunderous Super Bowl trailer that surfaced late last night.

Recruited by Oscar Isaac’s titular villain, the Four Horsemen become imbued with a special brand of power at the beginning of Bryan Singer’s biblical threequel, and that only spells all manner of trouble for Professor X (James McAvoy) and his class of mutants.

More News From The Web

As the very first mutant in existence, Apocalypse’s powers know no bounds, though it is his loyal soldiers that take center stage in today’s screenshots. Headlining the quartet is Michael Fassbender as the conflicted Magneto, flanked by Alexandra Shipp’s Storm, Olivia Munn’s Psylocke, and Ben Hardy’s Angel.

On the other end of the battlefield stand Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, »

Watch: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer Sees Mutants Go to War

7 February 2016 6:17 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An intense new trailer for “X-Men: Apocalypse” dropped during the Super Bowl, and things don’t look great for those X-Men.

It does indeed look like the end of the world in the new look at the sequel, as the titular villain Apocalypse, played by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” actor Oscar Isaac, aims to end humanity. But don’t worry: The X-Men are ready for action.

“Let’s go to war,” says Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.

James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier has assembled some new faces to help out in the follow-up to 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” including Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Frey (Sophie Turner) and Jubilee (Lana Condor).

But they have to face mutants like Olivia Munn’s Psylocke, who is seen slashing a car in two in the air in the clip. It looks like the X-Men have their hands full.

7 February 2016 6:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All roads lead to this. After expanding the X-Men cinematic universe with aplomb all across First Class and Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer is on the verge of closing the book on his mutant prequel trilogy with the release of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Due to loom over theaters in May, 20th Century Fox has drawn attention to its anticipated threequel by debuting a brand new sizzle reel during tonight’s Super Bowl 50. Even with Dawn of Justice looming on the horizon, X-Men: Apocalypse is, without question, one of the biggest tentpole films making its bow in 2016, and today’s new snippet showcases the biblical destruction it heralds.

Psylocke Attacks in New 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo

6 February 2016 11:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As 2015 came to a close, Olivia Munn declared her role as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse one of her defining moments of the year. Now, in 2016, the movie will finally hit theaters. To celebrate the impending release, the actress hopped on her personal Twitter page for a quick Q&A session. During the event, she also unveiled a new Psylocke photo, which shows the mutant ready for war.

Olivia Munn answers quite a few questions from fans. But be warned. Not all of them are about the movie. While she offers some cool insight into the making of X-Men: Apocalypse, she is also asked if she'll put her shoe on her head, which she does. She's then asked questions like, 'Do you prefer pancakes or waffles?' One of the better questions to come out of the session is whether or not Psylocke, who is discovered hiding behind the Iron Curtain by Apocalypse, »
