Black & White ‘Noir’ version of Logan confirmed for home-entertainment release

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month, Logan director James Mangold revealed that he was working on a black and white edition of Hugh Jackman’s X-Men swansong, a la the Black and Chrome version of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Well, it now looks like we have confirmation that this cut will be included on the home-entertainment release of the solo movie, with the listing on Google Play revealing that it will include both the theatrical and “noir” versions of the film. As yet, there’s no word when we can expect the Digital or Blu-ray release, but we should expect an announcement soon.

Logan was released at the start of March and has grossed $604.5 million to date, making it the third biggest earner of the X-Men franchise behind Deadpool ($783.1 million) and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($747.9 million).

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. »

Exclusive: Director William Oldroyd and star Florence Pugh on the disturbing period drama Lady Macbeth

25 April 2017 8:41 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

To celebrate the release of British drama Lady Macbeth, out on April 28th, we had the pleasure of meeting director William Oldroyd and lead star Florence Pugh – as we discussed the challenges and joys of having a narrative surround such a complex, nuanced protagonist.

Pugh tells us of her delight at being granted the chance to portray such a character, yet bemoans the lack of roles of this nature currently available for actresses. She also tells us whether or not it was easy switching off at the end of a day’s shoot, having gone to such dark places when embodying this role.

Oldroyd went on to explain what the young actress brings to the role, and whether he drew on his experiences directing for the stage when taking on this project. Finally, Pugh spoke about her forthcoming picture Fighting With My Family, where she plays WWE star Paige, »

Table 19 review

10 April 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's our look at wedding reception comedy-drama Table 19, starring Anna Kendrick, Craig Robinson and Lisa Kudrow...

Back in the early days of my online film geekdom, I used to take part in a fantasy film league, inspired by fantasy sports leagues. You take the role of a producer and using your budget for the season, you choose six stars to be in your made-up film. The box office returns of that film are then determined by the real life box office successes of those stars throughout the season.

Table 19 could have been cast in much the same way as you'd cast one of those fantasy films. »

Table 19 Review

7 April 2017 4:37 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Linda Marric

On paper, Table 19 looks like a sure bet for an hour and a half of harmless mischief and silly shenanigans. A group of strangers find themselves at the same wedding reception and must make the best of their night despite being made to sit at the “losers table”. What’s not to like, right? In reality, this unimaginatively lame and thoroughly amateurish production brings absolutely nothing new, or even old to the romantic comedy genre, and winds up looking cheap, messy and almost instantly forgettable.

At the last minute Eloise (Anna Kendrick) decides to attend the wedding of her oldest friend who also happens to be the sister of Teddy (Wyatt Russell), the man who broke up with her two months earlier. Things get complicated when she finds herself sat at the worst table in the room alongside a group of unwanted guests who should have »

"Logan" - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

4 April 2017 6:02 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From the movie review site TheGoodTheBadandtheUgly.Ca, Sneak Peek the good, the bad and the ugly in director James Mangold's comic book adaptation "Logan", starring Hugh Jackman as Marvel Comics' 'Wolverine':

Michael Stevens For: The Good

"R-Rated for 'strong brutal violence and language', actor Hugh Jackman cuts like a knife, in the part he was born to play, carving his initials into another fierce performance as Marvel's mutant 'Wolverine'.

"In the near future, the scarred, 150 year old, adamantium-clawed 'Old Man Logan' is reduced to guzzling liquor and cranking drugs, while his self-healing regenerative powers continue to wane.

"Logan picks up petty cash in El Paso as a driver for hire, while hunkering down in an industrial plant on a stretch of the Mexican border.

"His hideout companions include the 'Nosferatu'-looking clairvoyant 'Caliban' (Stephen Merchant)...

"...and the foul, abusive, Alzheimer stricken 'Charles Xavier' (Patrick Stewart), slowly going out of his mind, »

She finds herself seated at the ‘random’ table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets (but not before sending something nice off the registry). As everyone’s secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19. »

Table 19 Trailer and Images: Anna Kendrick plays a loser in love

23 March 2017 4:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Almost flying under the radar with an April 7th release is Anna Kendrick’s romantic comedy, Table 19 and with it comes the new trailer, a selection of stills and posters to give you an insight of what a real loser in love looks like.

Related: Anna Kendrick news and interviews

As romantic comedies go, Table 19 doesn’t exactly stand out, but there will be an audience out there who will love it. The trailer focuses on Kendrick attending a friend’s wedding who just happens to be marrying the brother of her ex-boyfriend who unceremoniously dumped her via a text message. Stuck at the table at the back, full of fellow losers who no one cares about, friendships flourish as the bitter and twisted guests reveal themselves. Predictably could love also flourish for our protagonist? We can safely bet it does.

Logan director James Mangold blasts tentpole movies

22 March 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Logan continues to ride the wave of critical and commercial success (it has now passed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office), director James Mangold had some brutally honest choice words for the less refreshing and not so ambitious tentpole releases.

Speaking to Kcrw (via CinemaBlend) about franchise fatigue, Mangold sounded off, stating that: “Tentpole movies in general … they are not movies, generally. They are bloated exercises in two-hour trailers for another movie they are going to sell you in two years. There are so many characters that each character gets an arc of about six-and-a-half minutes at best, and I’m not exaggerating. You take 120 minutes, you take 45 of it for action, what are you left with, divide it by six characters, you have the character arc of Elmer Fudd in a Warner Brothers cartoon. That formula is empty for me.”

Do you agree with Mangold’s assessment on tentpole movies? »

Logan, Forbidden Planet and The Tempest

21 March 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Mar 30, 2017

Logan doesn't just take influence from westerns: there's classic sci-fi and a bit of Shakespeare in there too...

This article contains major spoilers for Logan, Forbidden Planet and, er, The Tempest!

Logan sees the second appearance in the last 12 months of the mutant Caliban in cinemas, having been played in X-Men: Apocalypse by Tómas Lemarquis and now appearing in the (excellent and very effective) form of Stephen Merchant in Logan. There is a reason that, whatever continuity snafus might ensue, Caliban is an important inclusion in a film with very few mutant characters. The influence of Westerns (particularly, of course, Shane) on the film is obvious, but equally important are echoes of two other productions: classic 1956 science fiction film Forbidden Planet and the Shakespeare play that it’s loosely based on, The Tempest.

The Tempest is the story of the magician Prospero. He causes a storm to shipwreck his brother, »

Did Dan Stevens Really Sing? What Worried Emma Watson While Waltzing? Beauty and the Beast’s Secrets Revealed!

Now that Beauty and the Beast has danced into the record books with huge audience numbers and a record $170 million opening weekend box office haul, it’s fair to say that the “tale as old as time” has struck a chord with moviegoers.

Those songs! That talented cast! Those incredible costumes! The spectacle stuns, but the live-action Disney reboot leaves us wondering about a few things: How did they get all of that magic into one movie? Who had to learn to sing? How many people and animals were in that huge opening number? What kind of hair was Beast-turned-Prince »

Logan crosses the half billion dollar mark at the worldwide box office

19 March 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have found itself slipping down the charts these past couple of weeks thanks to Beauty and the Beast and Kong: Skull Island, but 20th Century Fox’s latest X-Men offering Logan continues to pull in the cash at the box office, having crossed the half billion dollar mark this weekend.

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swansong is now sitting on $524 million globally, having grossed $184 million domestically and a further $340 million from international markets.

Logan is now the highest-grossing Wolverine movie (with The Wolverine on $414.8 million and X-Men Origins: Wolverine on $373.1 million), and the fourth-highest grossing chapter of the entire X-Men franchise behind X-Men: Apocalypse on $543.9 million.

Deadpool remains the biggest earner in the franchise, having pulled in $783.1 million last year, while X-Men: Days of Future Past sits in second place with $747.9 million.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. »

Logan Director Says The Batman Is In Good Hands With Matt Reeves

16 March 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

James Mangold, with the success of Logan, has been thrust to the highest realm of comic adapted movie greatness. Let's take a look at a few stats: ComicBook.com gives it a 88.49 composite rating (making it their #2 movie of all time behind The Dark Knight), Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 92%, and Metacritic gives it a 77 -- which is considered favorable.

It is unknown if he will ever make another superhero movie but, with the uncertainty of The Batman, some are wondering if he would be the best man for the job instead of the current director Matt Reeves. Or better yet, if Mangold would do a Dark Knight Returns movie, in line with Christoper Nolan's masterpieces. Mangold was quick to squash this idea when he replied to a fan on twitter.

Logan receives a Beauty and the Beast-inspired TV spot

16 March 2017 2:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Logan enters the third week of its theatrical run, it is set to face some pretty steep competition in the form of Disney’s live-action remake of beloved animated masterpiece Beauty and the Beast – and that’s not even factoring in last week’s release of Kong: Skull Island.

As such, 20th Century Fox has released a new TV spot for Logan advising moviegoers to skip the beauty and come see the beast. Check it out below…

See Also: Fox didn’t realise that X-Men: Apocalypse and Logan both planned to use Caliban

It will be interesting to see how well the more recent blockbusters hold up this weekend against Beauty and the Beast despite its currently mixed critical reception. Get Out will likely also contain another ridiculously strong but well-deserved hold.

James Mangold Finally Explains Why Caliban Appeared In Both Logan And X-Men: Apocalypse

14 March 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Trying to figure out the timeline of the X-Men Universe requires a genius level Iq and a lot of patience, and where Logan fits into things is hard to say. It seems to reference X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a movie wiped out of continuity by X-Men: Days of Future Past, while also loosely tying into both that and The Wolverine.

Confused, yet? Well, one thing which fans have been questioning for a while now is how and why Stephen Merchant could be Caliban after Tómas Lemarquis played the same character – a good 50 or so years earlier in history terms – during the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. Thankfully, Logan director James Mangold has now offered an explanation, but those of you hoping for one which will make sense of this muddled timeline will probably be disappointed by what he has to say.

Logan, X-Men: Apocalypse and the Caliban mix-up

12 March 2017 11:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 13, 2017

Why is Caliban in two X-Men films so close together, yet set 46 years apart? And why hasn't he aged?

Slight spoilers for Logan lie ahead

When we think of cinematic universes, we sometimes tend to think of the planning that goes into them, to make sure the assorted parts of different films line up with each other.

Well, not always. And certainly not in the case of the X-Men films, that have always taken quite an, erm, 'liberal' approach to continuity. Case in point, the recently-released Logan movie. The film, riding high at the global box office, sees Stephen Merchant playing the role of Caliban. But hang on: in last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the role was played – albeit briefly – by Tomas Lemarquis. Yet with 46 years of timeline between the two movies, there, er, didn’t appear to be much ageing going on.

So was this deliberate? »

Fox didn’t realise that X-Men: Apocalypse and Logan both planned to use Caliban

11 March 2017 11:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although 20th Century Fox attempted to fix much of the continuity issues in the X-Men franchise with X-Men: Days of Future Past, the last two instalments – X-Men: Apocalypse and Logan – threw another spanner in the works by featuring two different versions of the character of Caliban.

Fans have wondered if this was supposed to be the same character, or perhaps two different people who just so happened to share the same name, look and abilities. Well, James Mangold has now explained just how Caliban ended up in both movies, and rather hilariously, it seems that no one at Fox realised that both Apocalypse and Logan planned to use him until it was too late.

“It’s a funny, messy story of how so often these things actually are not as coordinated as everyone thinks,” said Mangold in an interview with Nerdist. “I actually had written him into our movie, and »
