Lots and lots of new pictures from the big upcoming X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Earlier this week, we had the Superbowl trailer for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, which is now just three months and change away from its cinema release. Bryan Singer is back, directing an X-Men film for a fourth time (including the most recent, X-Men: Days Of Future Past). We’re promised this time around that it’ll round out the narrative trilogy that kicked off with X-Men: First Class.

A new bunch of images from the film have just landed, and you can find them by clicking on the posh gallery thingy up at the top there.

Here’s the synopsis for the film, too…

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. »

Assassin’s Creed movie is inspired by The Matrix

The Assassin’s Creed is heavy on the stunts and lighter on the green screen too, says Michael Fassbender...

After many years of being talked about, a movie based on the hit Assassin’s Creed series of videogames is now in post-production. It’s set for release this coming December, with Michael Fassbender in the lead role, and also producing.

Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender in the recent screen adaptation of Macbeth, is helming this one.

Fassbender has been chatting to Empire about the movie, and what’s inspired their take on it. “I’ve always thought about The Matrix when we’ve approached this”, he said. “This idea of DNA memory elevates it from a basic fantasy genre [piece], because you have something an audience can actually believe in. Then the journey becomes so much more elevated, because you’re on board in a different way”.

Inside the Oscar Nominees Lunch

5 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Academy Nominees lunch is always a convivial way for Oscar nominees to relax (while they work a room full of voters) and congratulate each other at tables full of fellow nominees, and pose for the annual group photo, 20 days ahead of the Academy Awards. 150 gathered this year at the Beverly Hilton; notably absent were working pros Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender and Tom HardyBrie Larson has to fly back to Australia for "King Kong" before returning for the Oscars. She's been logging a lot of airline miles, she said.  The Oscars producers Reginald Hudlin and David Hill announced a new "bottom of frame" thank you scroll and permanent record for winners. When they mentioned winners forgetting to thank their directors, Sylvester Stallone raised his hand. He gave young "Room" star Jacob Tremblay a boxing lesson for the photographers. Larson told me she couldn't have given her performance without Tremblay »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon. Despite the lack of acting nominees of color — which the Academy has no control over — Hill and fellow Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin have been working since September to make sure the Oscars “will have true diversity and will represent what the world looks like.”

The remarks were made at the 35th annual event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Hudlin said that an Oscar nomination is “an amazing moment in the life of any nominee,” and that the lunch is intended to celebrate their accomplishments.

They agreed that it’s crucial for the entire film industry to attain inclusion, but there is also room to celebrate the great film work of 2015, which been somewhat overshadowed in the past month. Or, as Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences »

How Michael Fassbender's Assassin's Creed Will Borrow From The Matrix

6 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There.s quite a lot riding on Assassin.s Creed. Previous attempts to adapt video games have failed rather badly. But there.s hope that the Michael Fassbender led adaptation of the hugely popular action adventure game will finally break that trend. And to help it do just that, Fassbender himself has admitted that it will be heavily influenced by The Matrix. The Irish actor, who recently finished shooting Assassin.s Creed, made this revelation to Empire Magazine, confessing that ever since he.s been working on the blockbuster he.s constantly be thinking about the Wachowski Siblings. classic.  I.ve always thought about The Matrix when we.ve approached this. This idea of DNA memory elevates it from a basic fantasy genre [piece], because you have something an audience can actually believe in.

Michael Fassbender compares Assassin's Creed to The Matrix

7 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Successfully adapting a video-game into a feature-film seems to be a rare beast, but Justin Kurzel's Assassin's Creed is hoping that it will be one of the few to get it right; at the very least, it's got one heck of a cast, including Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Michael K. Williams, and Brendan Gleeson. Assassin's Creed recently wrapped production... Read More »

Michael Fassbender Compares ‘Assassin’s Creed’ to ‘The Matrix’

Will Assassin’s Creed break the video game movie curse? World of Warcraft might accomplish that task first, based on director Duncan Jones‘ (Moon) involvement, but later this year, if Jones’ adaptation does disappoint, then director Justin Kurzel has a real shot at shattering the curse. Kurzel reunites with Macbeth stars, Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, for this Ubisoft adaptation, which Fassbender says is “old school” and inspired […]

“We’re Not Trying To Make It Too Crazy Violent”: Michael Fassbender Talks Practical Approach To 'Assassin's Creed'

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a climate where blockbusters seem to try and best each other by getting more and more frenzied, it's a bit refreshing to hear of a movie that's taking a more considered approach. The upcoming video game adaptation "Assassin's Creed" has a lot riding on its shoulders as the possible start of a new franchise, but according to Michael Fassbender, the goal is to keep it real, both literally and figuratively.  Read More: Michael Fassbender Fights In New Images From 'Assassin's Creed' “We’re not trying to make it too crazy violent, although obviously there is an element of that, but what is really cool is that our action sequences are on real sets and real locations,” the actor told Empire.

Assassin’s Creed Star Michael Fassbender Compares Upcoming Video Game Film To The Matrix

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

Justin Kurzel, Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender, fresh off creating one of the finest Shakespearian films in recent memory with Macbeth, will reunite later this year to tackle Ubisoft’s historical epic Assassin’s Creed.

A science fiction franchise at its core, the video game mega-franchise centers around players unlocking the DNA memories of their ancestors, effectively gaining the ability to relive the events of yesteryear. It’s a creative well that has allowed the Assassin’s Creed series to hop between the American Revolution and Ancient Italy, and Fassbender underlined these sci-fi tendencies during a recent interview with Empire.

In fact, the one film that the actor compared Assassin’s Creed to was The Matrix, and while we don’t expect Justin Kurzel’s adaptation to utilize bullet time or jet-black trench coats anytime soon, Fassbender touched base on how the concept elevates the film from your standard fantasy fare. »

Michael Fassbender Names The Matrix as a Creative Inspiration for the Assassin's Creed Film

12 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Image via Entertainment Weekly

We may be living in the age of the comic book movie, but the dawn of the age of the video game movie may be right around the corner. Filmmakers have been trying to adapt video games to the big screen for decades. We all remember the ill-fated Super Mario Bros. Movie of the 1990s, as well as the not-so-beloved adaptations of Tomb Raider, which did well enough by most standards, but didn't quite set the world on fire. Perhaps the closest thing the "genre"--if we're all comfortable calling it that--has had to success is the Resident Evil franchise. It may constantly get panned by critics, but the series has its fan base, and always seems to do well enough to warrant a sequel.

However, if the upcoming films Warcraft and Assassin's Creed are quality pictures, then we may be witnessing the beginnings of a new era. »

Magneto, Storm, Psylocke, and Angel tear earth asunder in the latest batch of images for X-Men: Apocalypse, which are essentially screengrabs lifted from the thunderous Super Bowl trailer that surfaced late last night.

Recruited by Oscar Isaac’s titular villain, the Four Horsemen become imbued with a special brand of power at the beginning of Bryan Singer’s biblical threequel, and that only spells all manner of trouble for Professor X (James McAvoy) and his class of mutants.

As the very first mutant in existence, Apocalypse’s powers know no bounds, though it is his loyal soldiers that take center stage in today’s screenshots. Headlining the quartet is Michael Fassbender as the conflicted Magneto, flanked by Alexandra Shipp’s Storm, Olivia Munn’s Psylocke, and Ben Hardy’s Angel.
