Fan Art: Lana Condor As 'Jubilee' In X-men: Apocalypse

just now | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday, director Bryan Singer revealed that unknown actress Lana Condor would be playing Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse. There is very little information about Condor to be found online, but we do know she's 19, from New York, and is also a model. Pictures of the actress are also scarce, but the ever-awesome Boss Logic has taken the one that accompanied the announcement and worked some of his magic. He's decided against going with the trademark yellow trench-coat but to be fair; this is probably a lot closer to how she'll actually be depicted in the movie anyway. Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse also stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) Kodi Smit-Mcphee (Nightcrawler), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). The movie reportedly starts shooting this summer and will hit theaters on May 27, 2016. »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

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

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

18 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that Georges Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Bryan Singer adds Lana Condor to the X-Men: Apocalypse cast, as Jubilation Lee will be joining the roster...

Bryan Singer has added a fresh face to the cast of his upcoming blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse. And in what is now his time honoured fashion, he's announced the latest casting via his social media accounts.

In this case, he's taken to Instagram to reveal that relative newcomer Lana Condor has picked up a role in his new X-Men movie. She's going to be taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, better known as Jubilee. She has the power of controlling energy plasmoids, in a manner akin to fireworks. Jubilee appeared in the original X-Men (where Katrina Florence played her), and in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand (where Kea Wong took on the role).

Here's the picture of Lana Condor, that Singer posted.

Though she currently has no credits on her IMDb page at this time, Lana Condor's first entry will be huge! The virtually unknown actress has landed a prime role in X-Men: Apocalypse. She will play one of the youngest team members to ever fight alongside Professor Xavier and his school of extraordinary students. That's right, Lana Condor is taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee.

Created by iconic X-men writer Chris Claremont and artist Marc Silvestri, the character's mutation allows her to create and control energy plasmodia that are similar to fireworks.

X-men: Apocalypse Adds Jubilee to Ensemble; Potential Cameos Revealed

25 March 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While the X-Men franchise may be due for a cast changeover in the near future, director Bryan Singer is ensuring that the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, is stacked with fan favorites. Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult are due to reprise their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Apocalypse marks the third and final film for which they’re under contract, so they have the ability to depart the franchise after this movie if they wish. Indeed, Lawrence recently revealed that Apocalypse will be her final X-Men movie, but the ensemble is also being filled out by younger versions of plenty of new mutants. The latest addition is actress Lana Condor, who Singer revealed on Instagram will be playing the character Jubilation Lee—aka Jubilee. She joins previously announced new additions Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm »
