Behind-The-Scenes X-Men: Apocalypse Photo Showcases Staggering Egyptian Sets

28 July 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there was ever any doubt about Bryan Singer’s commitment to practical effects for X-Men: Apocalypse, the director’s latest Instagram post should put any lasting doubts to bed. Showcasing a towering statute of Anubis, the Egyptian god of the afterlife, the image wouldn’t look out of place in a modern-day rendition of Indiana Jones, and it’s evident that Singer and his creative team are pulling no punches when it comes to recreating the sun-kissed home of Oscar Isaac’s titular menace.

Granted, as we learned a fortnight ago, Fox will also be implementing green screen shots into the backdrop of these scenes – largely filmed in and around the Egyptian capital of Cairo – though the fact that the production built a portion of the environment will make a marked difference when the final product lands in cinemas next summer.

Three world premières about three men - Steve Jobs, Miles Davis and Philippe Petit - anchor the 53rd New York Film Festival.

Announced yesterday, Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle's biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin, will be the Centerpiece. Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Michael Stuhlbarg comprise the all-star cast.

The Walk in 3D, based on Philippe Petit's To Reach The Clouds, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit with Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and Ben Schwartz, will open the festival. In 2012, Ang Lee’s majestic Life Of Pi was the first 3D movie screened as an Opening Night Gala.

The Closing Night film is Miles Ahead, Don Cheadle's directorial debut, in which he stars as Miles Davis, opposite Emayatzy Corinealdi, »

‘Steve Jobs’ to screen at Nyff

27 July 2015 4:04 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Danny Boyle’s biopic starring Michael Fassbender as the digital age visionary who changed the face of personal computing, telephony and music will screen on October 3 as the centrepiece screening of the 53rd New York Film Festival.

Festival top brass Tweeted the news on Monday in a statement that pointedly did not say the event would mark the film’s world premiere, leaving open the likelihood of an early autumn world premiere.

Two of Boyle’s more recent films – 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire – launched at Telluride before journeying north to Toronto.

Universal has set an October 9 North American release for Steve Jobs, which is based on Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of the Walter Isaacson biography published in 2011.

Nyff director and selection committee chair Kent Jones described the film as “dramatically concentrated, yet beautifully expansive; it’s extremely sharp; it’s wildly enertaining, and the actors just soar.”

Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film to be 'centrepiece' at New York film fest

27 July 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The biopic, which is written by Aaron Sorkin and stars Michael Fassbender, will be screened at the 53rd edition of the festival on 3 October

Steve Jobs, the upcoming film about the Apple maverick – which stars Michael Fassbender in the titular role and was directed by Danny Boyle – will screen as the centerpiece film for the 53rd New York film festival.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center, which hosts the event, doesn’t list it as a world premiere. Sources say it will bypass the Toronto and Venice film festivals that occur a month beforehand, so a Telluride film festival world premiere seems likely.

Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Heading to New York Film Festival, But is a Toronto Premiere in the Offingc

27 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tomorrow morning will see the first titles announced for the Toronto Film Festival, a day later Venice will begin to reveal their slate, but the New York Film Festival has already announced a pair of titles. Last week we learned Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead would close the fest that runs from Sept 25 - Oct 11 and today they've announced Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender will play the fest on October 3 as the Centerpiece selection. The interesting thing to note here is that nowhere in the press release announcing the selection does the word "premiere" show up, which leads me to believe Steve Jobs will likely show up either in Toronto, Telluride or Venice before New York with my leanings suggesting either Telluride or Toronto. The fact the announcement arrives today is no coincidence, but we'll have to wait a few more hours to find out. With a screenplay written by Aaron Sorkin, »

Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Starring Michael Fassbender Headed To New York Film Festival

27 July 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cinephiles are on standby because on Tuesday and Wednesday, Tiff and Venice will unveil their initial wave of titles, getting the fall festival season in high gear. However, the New York Film Festival is getting slightly ahead of them today with this interesting bit of news. Organizers have announced that Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs," penned by Aaron Sorking, and starring Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and more, will screen at Nyff as part their Centerpiece film. However, one thing to note is that word "premiere" is nowhere to be found in their press release. Perhaps this means that Venice and Tiff will get the movie first? We'd put some pretty good money on it, and don't count it out of appearing in Telluride's always surprising lineup. "Steve Jobs" opens on October 9th. ---------- New York, NY (July 27, 2015) – The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the selection of Steve Jobs, »

Latest X-men: Apocalypse Production Still Spotlights The Lair Of En Sabah Nur

27 July 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's apparent that Singer won't be over-relying on CGI environments for X-Men: Apocalypse, as this latest Instagram pic of a huge statue of the Egyptian God of the desert, Set, confirms. We know En Sabah Nur hails from Egypt, so it's assumed these sets will be used for his origin story, or perhaps somewhere he returns to over the course of the film.   This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse A photo posted by Bryan Singer (@bryanjaysinger) on Jul 27, 2015 at 10:08am Pdt 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), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), with Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert), Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse) and many others.

With production on X-Men: Apocalypse still going strong in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared yet another photo through his Instagram account, showcasing one of the massive practical sets. The filmmaker is seen being dwarfed by an Egyptian statue. But he wouldn't offer any details about the set itself or how it fits into the X-Men: Apocalypse story. He did say on his social media account that, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse."

This photo comes just a few days after Bryan Singer posted a photo with Sir Patrick Stewart on the set, which fueled speculation that he would return in a cameo role as Charles Xavier. The actor wasn't seen in costume, but he was watching footage with the director and another filmmaker, Jason Reitman, who was putting together a live read of The Big Lebowski at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.
