The 2016 superhero season kicks off next week with the hotly-anticipated arrival of Deadpool (which has been granted a 15-certificate from the BBFC, for any of our younger UK readers who were worried they might miss out), and so naturally Fox’s marketing department has been working overtime.

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-men: Apocalypse. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.

Perhaps the most surprising, and unfamiliar, name at this year’s Academy Awards is that of Room director, Lenny Abrahamson. The Irish filmmaker is far from a household name, with only a handful of credits and his biggest film to date being 2014’s quirky SXSW favorite, Frank.
That is on the brink of changing, however, with Abrahamson earning his first Oscar nomination for this year’s Room, which tells the story of a young mother (best actress nominee Brie Larson) forced to raise her five-year-old son in the confines of a single room. As if an Oscar nom wasn’t enough, Abrahamson’s next slated project will team him with breakout star, and fellow Irishman, Domnhall Gleeson, on a script written by best picture-nominated The Danish Girl screenwriter Lucinda Coxon.

“Time is on your side,” the Rolling Stones have long assured us, though the heavyweight roles nominated for 88th Academy Awards would sing a different tune. Time’s tendency to force or impede behavior had a significant impact on much of the year’s best acting.
Dramatically, you can’t go wrong by setting tight deadlines. In “The Big Short,” Michael Burry (Christian Bale) hurries to exploit mortgage bonds’ weaknesses before anyone else discovers them, and rushes to infer just the right moment to sell before the house of cards collapses.
In “Spotlight,” Mark Ruffalo plays reporter Mike Rezendes, who is always running against time. “There’s a sense of urgency to almost everything Mike does, as if there could never be enough time to get a source to talk, to get the documents, to write the story — it’s why he runs,” Ruffalo says.

Marvel Mutant fans visiting the local multiplex between now and May will encounter some of their favorite characters in larger than life form. A new theatrical standee has arrived for X-Men: Apocalypse, and it shows the main cast suited up in their new costumes. Main villain Apocalypse looms large in the background, as his Four Horsemen stand divided from Xavier's New Mutants. Who will win this war? With heavy hitters on both sides, that's a tough one to call.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set in 1983, 10 years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story centers on the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who is awakened after thousands of years of slumber, as he assembles his Four Horsemen, Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Angel (Ben Hardy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Magneto has been living in exile after X-Men: Days of Future Past, and director Bryan Singer revealed last month »

You'd be unwise to think Leo won't be giving his first speech on the Oscars stage on February 28, for the only other contender with some critical support is Michael Fassbender, though even he is way back in second place.

A cool new standee for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is starting to appear in theatres, and as you can see, it gives us a look at pretty much all of the merry band of mutants assembled – the only notable absentees being Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops, Lana Condor’s Jubilee and Rose Byrne’s returning Moira McTaggert.
Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) looms large at the back, while left to right we have his Four Horsemen: Ben Hardy as Angel, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Olivia Munn as Psylocke and Michael Fassbender as Magneto. Then there’s the X-Men themselves: Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Nicholas Hoult as Beast and newcomer Sophie Turner as Jean Grey. Crouching in front is Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, and finally James McAvoy as the now bald Professor X.
While the Horsemen are all wearing fairly comic-accurate costumes, many fans are disappointed that the X-Men »

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction. X-Men: Apocalypse is once again directed by Bryan Singer, and is set to open in theaters on May 27, 2016. »
The best-known films of director Lenny Abrahamson, Frank and the quadruple Oscar-nominee Room, follow sad, and in some cases, broken souls as they search and fight for even the tiniest glimpse of happiness. Frank follows a band with an intentionally unpronounceable name, whose lead singer (Michael Fassbender) always wears a fake plastic head, concealing his scarred face from the world. In Room, a mother (Brie Larson) and her young son (Jacob Tremblay) survive a tragic fate, held prisoner in a single room for years on end.
The two films share an acute sensitivity to the lives of characters who struggle to make the best of the often brutal fates with which they’ve been burdened. Abrahamson listed the following ten films as his favorite in 2012’s Sight and Sound poll, a brilliant mixture of stories which as he laments in his quote, could have contained far more than a mere ten selections. »

Though it didn’t get quite as much awards attention as it perhaps deserved, Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs was still one of the very best films of 2015. Featuring a tour de force performance from Michael Fassbender and some brilliant writing from Aaron Sorkin, it presented an exciting and insightful look into the life of its titular icon.

Thanks to My Entertainment World, we’ve got details on production start dates for some of 2017’s big hitters.
The Scarlett Johansson-headlined Ghost in the Shell, which is set to be directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) will begin filming this month in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau and Shanghai.
Also set to commence production this month is the Fifty Shades of Grey follow-up Fifty Shades Darker, which sees Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson returning as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele alongside new addition Kim Basinger.
The release date of Avatar 2 may have been pushed back due to Star Wars: Episode VIII, but James Cameron will reportedly start shooting the follow-up to the highest-grossing film of all time in New Zealand in April.

This year is shaping up to be a big one for 20th Century Fox, with the release of highly-anticipated superhero movies such as Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. This year will also be huge for the studio as a number of other big projects starts production. Today we have start dates for three of the studio's biggest movies, Wolverine 3, Avatar 2 and Alien: Covenant. All three of these movies start filming in April, albeit in different locations around the globe, according to My Entertainment World.
Wolverine 3 is reportedly set to start filming on April 25 in New Orleans and Mexico. Star Hugh Jackman revealed last week that the script was finished, although he wouldn't say exactly when production will get started. The actor is currently the only confirmed cast member at this time, but it is believed that Patrick Stewart will also be back as Professor X. No story details have been confirmed yet. »
Title notwithstanding, Alien: Covenant is a Prometheus sequel, and as such we’ve been expecting it to pick up where that earlier adventure left off. But it seems at least one major development will have taken place by the time we revisit that universe. Director Ridley Scott confirms Noomi Rapace will not return as archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw, leaving Michael Fassbender‘s murderous android David the […]

Back in November, Ridley Scott met with members of the Australian press to talk about "Alien: Covenant" which he would be shooting in the country. He teased that Michael Fassbender would have dual roles in the film, and said that Noomi Rapace would be back as well, albeit in a "minor role." However, as the picture gears up to start shooting this year, it seems there's no more room for the actress. Read More: The 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2016 Chatting with Baz Bamigboye, when asked if Rapace would be returning, Scott confirmed she wouldn't be, adding, "We’re still casting the main roles." It's probably a fair bet that the story for "Alien: Covenant" just has no place for Elizabeth Shaw, and likely picks up many years after the events of "Prometheus." Focusing as it does on the crew of a new colony ship, Covenant, who stumble across David (Fassbender »

Since its announcement, everyone assumed that Noomi Rapace would return for Prometheus 2, which was re-titled to Alien: Paradise Lost and then to Alien: Covenant. But according to its director Ridley Scott, Rapace won’t be along for another outing.
“No,” Scott answered when asked if Rapace was coming back. “We’re still casting the main roles.”
This differs from an officially released statement from 20th Century Fox that stated Rapace would be reprising her role of Elizabth Shaw alongside Michael Fassbender and newcomer Katherine Waterson.
Scott has announced there are two more sequels in the works for Prometheus after Alien: Covenant, so there is a chance for her character to return in another outing. However when asked for a comment on Prometheus and its sequels, Rapace told Red Carpet TV News, “I have no comment on that yet.”
Sounds like more trouble is afoot for Scott’s Alien: Covenant than meets the eye. »

Big Alien Covenant Noomi Rapace news. Yes, it has been confirmed that Noomi Rapace will not return for the Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant. Rapace played the role of Elizabeth Shaw in the first movie, which was released back in 2012.
The Alien Covenant Noomi Rapace exit news comes from the Daily Mail. Their film critic Baz Bamigboye asked Ridley Scott if Rapace will be reprising her role in the film, which is about to start shooting this month down in Australia.
Here’s a little from the original article.
So, we know that Michael Fassbender will be »

Now comes the news, directly from Scott himself, that Noomi Rapace won't be coming back for his space horror follow-up. When asked by a Daily Mail journalist whether Rapace would be reprising her role as Elizabeth Shaw, Scott said, "No," before adding, "We're still casting the main roles."
This marks a major change from the official information provided by Fox in November 2015, where Noomi Rapace was among the three actors confirmed for Alien: Covenant - the others being Michael Fassbender and newcomer Katherine Waterston.
