Review: X-Men Days of Future Past

6 October 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Increasingly, studios want you to stream or buy your own digital copy of feature films and to entice you, that edition is being made weeks prior to the physical disc being available for purchase. In an effort to direct viewer buying and viewing habits, studios are also shifting review copies from disc to high definition download. My first encounter with this brave new world, ironically enough, comes with 20th Century Home Entertainment’s current release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sprawling, epic film from May. The biggest drawback is making certain you have enough hard disc storage for the mammoth file and a set-up that allows you to watch on a huge screen. Lacking that, I watched the film on my 24” external monitor and while the image was crisp and the audio clear enough (although maybe I need to upgrade my speakers); it needs a bigger screen to properly appreciate. »

Epic New Concept Art For Bryan Singer's X-men 3 Features Alternate 'Phoenix' Designs

2 October 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thanks to Universo X-Men, we have some concept art from what Bryan Singer's take on "The Dark Phoenix Saga" would have looked like had he not chosen to helm Superman Returns instead of X-Men 3. Writer Simon Kinberg has expressed his regret over how the movie turned out (especially as it's one of his favourite story arcs), and it seems clear that Singer's version would have been far superior to what Brett Ratner came up with in the short amount of time he had to prepare when he boarded the project following Matthew Vaughn's last-minute departure. These designs and the level of destruction are vastly superior to what we ended up getting in the final movie, and I strongly recommend heading on over to the site by clicking on the link below for more concept art! »

2 October 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Hart has joined Colin Firth on Intouchables.

The Ride Along actor has been cast in the project, which is back on track according to Allocine (via The Playlist).

The film will remake the French comedy drama, which was based on the true story of the developing relationship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his immigrant caregiver.

Bridesmaids' Paul Feig was formerly attached to direct the film, but it is unclear if he is still part of the project.

Hart will next be seen in The Wedding Ringer.

Firth will star in Matthew Vaughn's upcoming comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service. »

Watch: Impressive VFX Breakdown for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

1 October 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In just a couple weeks, you'll be able to bring home X-Men: Days of Future Past on Blu-Ray and DVD, and while you'll be able to check out a slew of featurettes going behind the scenes of this past summer's time traveling blockbuster, you won't find this little gem on there. A visual effects breakdown from Digital Domain (via io9) has surfaced online, showing off the impressive work done in post-production. Though I wish there was explanation about what we see and how it's done, there are some cool tidbits, like seeing how each scale on Mystique's body moves when she transforms, or how various composite shots of Jennifer Lawrence fighting and changing into someone else visually come together. It's all very cool to see. Watch! Here's Digital Domain's visual effects reel for X-Men: Days of Future Past (via io9): X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by »

X-Men: Apocalypse is final chapter in 'First Class trilogy'

1 October 2014 5:04 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

X-Men: Apocalypse will serve as the concluding chapter in a trilogy that began with First Class.

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has said that the upcoming film, which is directed by Bryan Singer, will wrap up storylines that began in Matthew Vaughn's 2011 film.

"The thrust of [Apocalypse] is really to complete the trilogy we began with First Class - to complete the stories of young Raven, young Hank, younger Charles and Erik," he told Yahoo (via Cbr).

"And complete this trilogy of four people who began the films in sort of disparate and in different worlds - even if they knew each other, in the case of Charles and Raven.

"We've followed them over what will be the span of decades... So really that'll be the thrust of that film. There will be familiar characters and new characters that we haven't seen... ever... but it'll be the completion of what we began in First Class. »

Anna Paquin’s scenes as Rogue that were cut from “X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be added back to the film and re-released as the “Rogue Cut” next summer on homevideo platforms.

The extended version of “Days of Future Past” will become available in the first half of 2015, most likely during the summer, according to the film’s writer and producer Simon Kinberg, who made the announcement Thursday from Stage 21, where scenes for the previous “X-Men” installment, “First Class” were filmed on the Twentieth Century Fox studio lot. Kinberg, who also worked on that film, was back on the lot to promote the theatrical version of “Days of Future Past,” available now on digital and on Oct. 14 on DVD and Blu-ray.

“This the movie we’re the most proud of,” Kinberg said of the theatrical version that became the “X-Men” franchise’s top earner with $746 million this summer.

Colin Firth Is A Total Badass In The New Kingsman: The Secret Service Trailer

23 September 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Normally we're used to Colin Firth starring in films that are either politely funny (like Bridget Jones' Diary or Love Actually) or blisteringly dramatic (such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or, more recently, Devil's Knot.) However, there comes a time in an actor's career when they decide it's time to switch things up a bit and get a little more action-y. Which means that the trailer to Kingsman: The Secret Service marks Colin Firth's entry into the "later career badass" phase that Liam Neeson has been occupying as of late. 20th Century Fox's official YouTube channel dropped the latest trailer to Matthew Vaughn's latest directorial venture into the world of comic books last night, and it's even more stylish than the first trailer we received earlier this year. Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of Harry Hart (Firth,) a top spy for a secret branch of »

Check Out Colin Firth as an Action Star!

23 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Another movie based on a comic book is coming at you, and this one has Colin Firth! He stars as a secret service agent who recruits a mixed-up young kid (Taron Egerton) in Kingsman: The Secret Service. Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) actually cowrote the comic book with his Kick-Ass collaborator Mark Millar, so it should be a pretty faithful adaptation. It's cool to see Colin Firth fling a beer mug at a guy using an umbrella handle, especially when it's set to a new track from Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding. Have I mentioned Samuel L. Jackson plays a ridiculous-looking villain? This is a must watch. The movie is set for a Feb. 13 release date, so stay tuned for more footage and pictures until then! »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Continues to Impress in New Trailer

23 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

An all new movie trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book series, Kingsman: The Secret Service, has landed and it continues to look amazing.  While some of the footage has been seen before in conventions, that doesn't prevent the new trailer from standing out.  

I really like this trailer.  I like it a lot actually.  What has me so interested in this film, is that it's taking a lot of traditional movie tropes and ideas, and twisting them around.  Sure, we've all seen the well-dressed super spy with various gadgets, but this is a different take on that.  Instead of being a lone gunmen, we get to see him be a team player and taking someone else under his wing.  On top of that, you have the overt comic book attributes and villains.  While we've seen these ideas before, they're blended together in all new ways. »

Kingsman: The Secret Service - New Action-Packed Trailer

23 September 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has released an awesome new trailer for Matthew Vaughn's new film Kingsman: The Secret Service. The trailer features loads of new adrenaline-fueled footage, and it features a new song by Iggy Azaela. It also looks like there are still some unfinished special effects — at least I hope they are unfinished. Regardless, the flick still looks like it will be a ridiculously good time.

The movie is based on the comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and it tells the story of "a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius."

The movie basically comes from the same team of talent that gave us Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class. It stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson. Kingsman: The Secret Service »
