In the movie, which is set in 1983, the two reprise their roles as Mystique and Professor Charles Xavier and strive to mentor a new group of mutants so they can defeat a new but very old enemy, named, yep, Apocalypse. The new movie stars a slew of franchise newcomers, such as Oscar Isaac, who plays the baddie, Olivia Munn, who plays one of his allies, plus Game of Thrones' Sophie TurnerTye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, Ben Hardy and Lana Condor. Other returning stars include Michael Fassbender, »

This is the second official look at the film, following the teaser image of a Covenant crew member’s patch that was revealed on Alien Day.

In addition to Waterston (Inherent Vice), the cast for Alien: Covenant includes Michael Fassbender (reprising his role as the synthetic David from Prometheus), Demián Bichir (The Bridge), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down), Amy Seimetz (The Sacrament, »

First look at Katherine Waterston in Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes image

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend we brought you some set photos from Alien: Covenant featuring an “extraterrestrial massacre” [see here], and now the social media platforms for Ridley Scott’s latest foray into the world of the Alien franchise have revealed a new behind-the-scenes images from the film, which gives us our first look at Katherine Waterston as Daniels…

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.

Katherine Waterston Has Nowhere To Run In Latest Alien: Covenant Image

Cowering away in the shadows from a ship malfunction, a marauding Xenomorph, or some combination of the two, Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice) has nowhere left to run in the latest image surfacing from Ridley Scott’s sci-fi sequel, Alien: Covenant.

Currently simmering in the bowels of production Down Under, today’s still offers a fresh look at the film’s “fantastic” sets, and it’s likely Waterston is pictured aboard the titular Covenant space vessel, bound for a remote star system in search of an “uncharted paradise.” Minor spoilers to follow.

Mystique Is No Hero In Another New Clip From X-Men: Apocalypse

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

When X-Men: First Class ended, Mystique was left on a path which could have easily seen her become the villain we all knew from the original X-Men trilogy. However, Days of Future Past shook things up by making some major changes to the timeline and established the shapeshifter as a hero. So, when X-Men: Apocalypse begins, Raven has become an icon in the eyes of mutants.

That’s a decision which has upset a lot of comic book fans who like seeing Mystique as a villain, but it’s a refreshing direction to take the character in, especially after years of seeing her serve as little more than a henchman of sorts for Magneto. However, based on the new clip from X-Men: Apocalypse in the player above, it’s not a role that the character is finding easy to embrace.

This scene has clearly been lifted from a fairly late point in X-Men: Apocalypse, »

…something a bit different. Oli and Luke went on their first podcast date together, watching a preview screening of Warcraft, followed by a Q+A with director Duncan Jones and actors Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton and Toby Kebbell. This means they had to record the episode upstairs in a generic coffee shop in London Waterloo Railway Station.

Like a football match with extra time, this is an episode of two halves: firstly, Oli and Luke’s immediate thoughts on Warcraft – the release that was meant to kickstart the video game movie craze – and secondly, a spoiler-full review of X-Men: Apocalypse. And then, for the extra time…

Movie Review – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Apocalypse, 2016.

Directed by Bryan Singer.

Starring James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Sophie Turner, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, Lana Condor and Evan Peters.

Synopsis:

10 years after the events of the last movie, the X-Men reunite to battle Apocalypse, the world’s first mutant, who’s decided that the world needs to torn down and rebuilt.

Spoilers Ahead…

It’s been a rocky road for the X-Men franchise over the last 16 years. Bryan Singer got it off to a great start with the first two installments, then he jumped ship to direct Superman Returns, leaving the franchise in the not-so-capable hands of Brett Ratner, who gave us The Last Stand – a film that, along with Spider-Man 3 and Fantastic Four, would become a textbook example of how to not do a superhero film. After that came Gavin Hood »

Film Review: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is a Marvel Entertainment Gem

25 May 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In doing “comic book” movies right, Marvel Entertainment has established a formula of decent back stories, complex villainy and probable scenarios. In continuing to tell a history of the second half of the 20th Century in “X-Men Apocalypse,” they also add a historical parallel universe that works.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

The film plays on themes of “what is the ultimate evil?” and “what is the ultimate power?” with enough ambiguity to create a questioning of all values, which closes in on our actual reality in the socio-economic experiment of America. By taking on the Cuban Missile Crisis in “First Class,” Richard M. Nixon and Vietnam in “Days of Future Past” and finally nuclear proliferation in “X-Men Apocalypse,” the producers – and director Bryan Singer – are blurring the lines between what a society under siege would go through, and how they would rely on a superhero class of people to save them.

The Preview Reel: Mutants Over Wonderland

25 May 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to the fourth week of CinemaNerdz’s “Preview Reel” where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. Memorial Day weekend is one of the biggest movie weekends of the summer, and this year features two franchise-tent pole films. There’s the next installment in the long-lasting X-Men franchise with X-Men: Apocalypse, and the follow-up to the 2010 smash hit Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass. Both films feature large price tags and look to cash-in on the four day holiday weekend, lets break them down to see if either of them are worth your time.

  X-Men: Apocalypse

What we are excited about:

The X-Men film franchise has been one of Hollywood’s longest running franchises, and the series has arguably never been better. First Class, The Wolverine, Days of Future Past, and this year’s Deadpool are among the best of the franchise, »

‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ to Make for Strong Memorial Day Box Office

24 May 2016 7:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” has the upper hand in the Memorial Day weekend with early forecasts showing an $80 million-plus launch at 4,100 locations at the U.S. box office.

Recent estimates indicate that Disney’s sequel “Alice Through the Looking Glass” will open in the $60 million range.

With the two openers generating as much as $150 million combined, the four-day period looks to be much more robust than last year when George Clooney’s “Tomorrowland” under-performed with $42.7 million but still was the top grosser. Last year’s holiday frame was only the 12th-highest on record with $194.9 million, off 38% from the top Memorial Day weekend in 2013, when “Fast & Furious 6” opened.

X-Men: Apocalypse,” the fourth X-Men movie directed by Bryan Singer, has an impressive legacy to follow during the Memorial Day holiday period. His “X-Men: Days of Future Past” generated $110.6 million on its opening in 2014, or nearly half the $231.4 million total box office »

X-Men: The real Apocalypse is its continuity!

24 May 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black attempts to make sense of the continuity of the X-Men franchise…

Have you ever attempted to make sense of the X-Men movie continuity? As in pick apart the entire timeline of events across the eight, soon to be nine films in the franchise? Of course not, you all have lives. You have friends and family and loved ones, and probably spend time with them. I, on the other hand, give a worrying amount of time over in my brain space to consider these things, and recent conversation with my good friend Lee Chrimes, ostensibly about the merits (or lack thereof) of the brand new X-Men: Apocalypse, led to a very deep exploration of X-Men chronology which drove us toward one inescapable conclusion: the writers have no idea, and are probably hoping we’re past the point of worrying about it. Well I have news for you, Simon Kinberg – this matters. »

Will Alice 2 or X-Men: Apocalypse Win the Weekend Box Office?

24 May 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last weekend, Sony's Angry Birds Movie managed to take down two-time box office champ Captain America: Civil War. The Marvel sequel has already taken in more than $300 million domestically and $1 billion worldwide after just three frames in theaters. Unfortunately for Sony's animated comedy, the Angry Birds' reign will certainly be short-lived, with two highly-anticipated movies duking it out for box office supremacy starting this Friday. 20th Century Fox will roll out X-Men: Apocalypse, while Disney will debut Alice Through the Looking Glass, setting the stage for a big box office showdown. According to our projections, the mutants of X-Men: Apocalypse should be able to come out on top against the magical characters of Alice's Wonderland.

Box Office Mojo reports that X-Men: Apocalypse is slated to debut in approximately 4,000 theaters this weekend, with Disney expected to roll out Alice Through the Looking Glass in roughly 3,700 theaters. Both of those counts »

After Oli’s interview with the man behind 20th Century Fox’s X-Verse, Simon Kinberg, his and Luke’s picture of the man has been thrown out of kilter. He says the right things and shares the same passion for comics as we do…so then why do Fox have such a patchy record with their Marvel superhero movies (Fantastic Four, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men: The Last Stand)?

Long-Gestating Terrence Malick Drama Weightless Unveils Running Time And Star-Studded Cast

24 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may have first entered production all the way back in 2011, but thanks to directing duties on both To The Wonder and, more recently, the Christian Bale-led Knight of Cups, Weightless fell far down the pecking order for esteemed filmmaker Terrence Malick.

It’s finally starting to display signs of life, however, with the British Board Of Film Classification (via The Playlist) posting not only the movie’s official running time – just north of 145 minutes in length – but also the ensemble cast that will be headlining Malick’s latest creative effort.

Pulling together some of the talent that also featured in existential feature Knight of Cups, the filmmaker will reteam with Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman for the musical drama, while there’s also roles for Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, »
