Olivia Munn Shows Her Psylocke Bruises in X-Men: Apocalypse Photo

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse was in production, fans got regular glimpses from the set thanks to actress Olivia Munn, who posted photos and videos of her fight training to play Psylocke. Now, with less than one month left until X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters, the actress is reminiscing with a "Throwback Thursday" photo from her Instagram page, which shows just how physical her training got. As you can see in the photo, the life of an actress isn't always very glamorous.

Those who follow Olivia Munn's Twitter and Instagram pages were often treated to videos that showed her sword training progress while production was under way. The actress even mentioned this very photo during a Twitter Q&A in February, where she told fans how bruised she was after a training session. Here's what she had to say about the photo during the Twitter Q&A.

Alicia Vikander is your new ‘Tomb Raider’

12 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lara Croft gets a new face as Alicia Vikander joins the Tomb Raider reboot. 

For those who have ever wondered what goes at behind closed doors at the Fassbender / Vikander household we reckon that a lot of gaming goes down. Michael Fassbender has spent the last couple of years bringing passion-project Assassin’s Creed to cinemas, and now his girlfriend is set to step into the game-to-screen universe. Alicia Vikander has been cast as iconic game heroine Lara Croft aka Tomb Raider in the long planned reboot.

The part was first played onscreen by Angelina Jolie but despite her best efforts the movies have gone in history as being a bit of a joke. The studios are hoping to erase those films and given Vikander’s impressive body of work she’s a great pick. She’s thought to have fought off strong competition from Daisy Ridley but we have »

Alicia Vikander Cast As Lara Croft In Tomb Raider Reboot

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it looked set that Star Wars fan-favorite Daisy Ridley would clinch the title part, it’s been revealed that Alicia Vikander has landed the role in Warner Bros.Tomb Raider reboot.

Vikander, the seemingly omnipresent Swede who continues to snap up enviable roles left, right, and center, is now primed to pick up the dual pistols and iconic tank top as Lara Croft, the beloved archaeologist that remains a bona fide mascot in the video game industry two decades after her debut.

More News From The Web

That in large part comes down to Crystal Dynamics’ overhauled series – one that Warner Bros. will reportedly be taking cues from going into the live-action feature. Placing Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (The Wave) behind the lens, we suspect that Vikander has been tapped to spearhead an origins story about the young, rookie explorer – much like the narrative that underpinned Crystal’s acclaimed 2013 reboot, »

Alicia Vikander to Play Lara Croft in ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

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

The Danish Girl” star Alicia Vikander has nabbed one of Hollywood’s most coveted leading roles.

Vikander will be playing Lara Croft in the MGM and Gk Films’ “Tomb Raider” reboot, it was announced Thursday. Norwegian helmer Roar Uthaug is on board to direct.

While other actresses had met for the role, including Daisy Ridley, source indicate that Vikander had always been the first choice. The reason for the delay of announcement was that the studio was waiting for a new draft of the script, sources say.

MGM joined the project in 2013, acquiring rights to the popular video game to develop the feature in partnership with Graham King’s Gk Films. King, who acquired “Tomb Raider” in 2011 from Square Enix, will serve as producer.

The original “Tomb Raider” was released in 1996 by London-based Eidos, which is now part of Square Enix. The games have sold over 35 million units. Square Enix »

20th Century Fox Pulls Out Of Sdcc 2016

15 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to The Wrap, 20th Century Fox has decided not to attend San Diego Comic Con this year over piracy concerns.  That means there will be no footage from Michael Fassbender's Assassin's Creed or any announcements regarding The Wolverine 3 or Deadpool 2. With footage from Hall H panels generally leaking online just a few hours after the presentation, Fox feels that there's no way to combat overzealous fans and so they'll just sit out Sdcc's grand showcase altogether.  The Wrap also reports that (gasp) Disney and Marvel are also considering skipping Sdcc this year. Disney usually skips Sdcc when there's a D23 Expo in the same year but that's not the case in 2016.   The Wrap reached out to a Disney rep for confirmation on their sources tip but was told Disney was not considering such a movie.  Still, don't be surprised if there's an announcement made sometime between now and July. »

No ‘Assassin’s Creed’ at Comic-Con!? Fans Upset by Fox’s Pullout

16 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Comic-Con fanatics were more sad than anything else after a report by TheWrap that 20th Century Fox is pulling out of San Diego Comic-Con’s annual Hall H presentation this year over piracy fears. Fox would likely have shown glimpses of “Assassins Creed,” the Michael Fassbender video game adaptation. Other possibilities could have included early first looks at Hugh Jackman‘s “Wolverine 3” and the recently-delayed “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.” Also Read: Fox Movie Studio Pulls Out of Comic-Con Main Event Over Piracy Fears (Exclusive) Fox will still have a presence at ComicCon, just not in Hall H’s main event. »

With less than one month left until 20th Century Fox unleashes X-Men: Apocalypse in theaters, the studio is debuting new footage left and right. Just three days after the new trailer arrived, the studio has released a new clip, along with two TV spots and new photos, including James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender on the cover of Cineplex Magazine. The clip offers some intriguing details about the origins of the title villain, played by Oscar Isaac. If that wasn't enough, we also have new details about Cyclops, played by Tye Sheridan.

James Marsden originated the Cyclops role in the original X-Men trilogy, but X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the year 1983, with a new crop of stars stepping in to play these iconic mutants at a younger age. 19-year-old Tye Sheridan is playing Cyclops, although his background with the X-Men franchise doesn't go too deep.

First Alien: Covenant Photo Reveals Weyland-Yutani Connection

27 April 2016 4:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, production got under way on 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant in Australia, under the direction of Ridley Scott. We've already seen one rather revealing photo from the set, which teases a connection to the director's 2012 sci-fi thriller Prometheus. And today we have yet another photo that reveals how the Weyland-Yutani corporation is involved in the story. Unfortunately, this image doesn't feature any of the actors on set, but it still is quite intriguing.

The photo was posted on the official Alien Anthology Twitter page yesterday, in celebration of Alien Day, which coincided with the 30th anniversary of the 1986 sequel Aliens. The date, April 26, or 4/26, corresponded with the planet Lv-426 where Aliens was set. The photo features the patch that all Covenant crew members will wear, which reveals that the Weyland-Yutani corporation is sponsoring this endeavor.

You may recall that, in 2012's Prometheus, the company was known as the Weyland Corporation, »

Plus, Cineplex magazine's cover features Michael Fassbender's Magneto and James McAvoy's Charles Xavier side-by-side.

First official look at Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’

27 April 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the wonderful #AlienDay426 yesterday already off in the wistful past, Ridley Scott has added another day to the Alien-excitement with this first official look into his upcoming Alien: Covenant, the follow-up to Prometheus.

Personally, I couldn’t stop raving about 2012’s prequel and although seen by some as a little ridiculous in places, I hugely enjoyed the ride, both visually and the discovery of the unknown along with Michael Fassbender‘s Peter O’Toole-loving David. Although some of you may be confused at how many Alien movies are coming our way, this one is Scott’s prequel to his original 1979 masterpiece (This one here is Neill Blomkamp’s) and it will, in the words of the press releases we’ve been handed, have a direct connection to that original.

Below is our first proper look into Alien: Covenant and once you see the image, it’ll make sense »

First Official Image from Alien: Covenant

27 April 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The first official image from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has arrived and while it doesn't give Anything away, it's still something. I've made a pretty good case for Ridley Scott being out of touch on recent episodes of the podcast but let's see what happens with this before we get out the pitch forks and gallons of petrol. Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

20th Century Fox Unveils The First Official Image From Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant

27 April 2016 5:03 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday was Alien Day (April 26, Lv 426...geddit?), and to celebrate, Fox has unveiled our first official look at Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant. The new crew badge is emblazoned with the angels from the top of the Ark of The Covenant, along with the ever-present Weyland-Yutani Corporation logo.  Granted it's not much, but it's something. In other Xenomorph-related news, director Neill Blomkamp has released some new concept are from his planned direct sequel to James Cameron's Aliens, featuring a grown-up Newt. “Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on »

Alien: Covenant - official image shows Weyland-Yutani crew badge

Fox has released a brand new official image from Alien: Covenant, showing what the crew's badge looks like...

All kinds of things are stirring in the Alien universe of late. We've heard in recent days that Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 project is still very much alive, with Sigourney Weaver chatting about the sequel and Blomkamp himself releasing a bit of artwork showing a new, 20-something, battle-ready Newt.

Per director Ridley Scott's wishes, it's Alien: Covenant up first, though, with the Alien prequel (and sequel to 2012's Prometheus) due out next year. Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride have joined a returning Michael Fassbender among the cast, while Noomi Rapace, who played explorer Elizabeth Shaw four years ago, is out of the picture according to Scott.

Filming on Alien: Covenant is currently underway, and as a result, Fox has released a new offical image from the production. »
