'X-Men: Apocalypse' Concept Art Confirms Mutant Angel

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With shooting scheduled to begin next month in Montreal on X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer took to his Instagram page to reveal a new piece of production artwork, which confirms that the mutant Warren Worthington III, a.k.a. Angel, will be featured in the sequel. The image appears to show Angel locked in a cage at some sort of a circus, but it isn't known how this image will fit into the story line. It's worth noting that we haven't heard who is playing Angel yet, but we reported last month that actor Ben Hardy has signed on to play an important yet undisclosed character from the Marvel comics, so it's possible that he could be playing Angel.

The cast of this comic book adaptation includes Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Alexandra Shipp (young Storm), Sophie Turner (young Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (young Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (young Nightcrawler), along with »

Angel featured in production art from X-Men: Apocalypse

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to post some production art from X-Men: Apocalypse, which confirms that the character of Angel is set to feature in the 1980s-set follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past.

At this point, we don’t know who will be playing this version of Warren Worthington III, but Ben Hardy (EastEnders) would appear to be a good shout, given that his character is yet to be revealed…

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as »

Bryan Singer Teaser Angel in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' with New Concept Art

8 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Bryan Singer has mastered the art of teasing fans on social media when it comes to production on X-Men: Apocalypse and he's at it again, posting the above image on his Instagram account more-or-less confirming the character Angel will be seen in the new movie. As you'll all remember, Ben Foster played Angel in the lackluster X-Men: The Last Stand, but the X-verse timeline has since been altered so that Angel is most likely not this Angel and I wouldn't expect Foster to return to play the character either, unless Singer is still holding back surprises. Fans of the comics will surely speculate what this image of Angel trapped in a cage means, but over at ComicBookMovie.com they write:"Could that be an early Mr. Sinister conducting itc Who knows, but in a movie with Apocalypse, Angel not being included would have been a big mistake. Here's hoping we »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Actors Begin Fight Training

28 March 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Bryan Singer wants his cast in fighting shape for X-Men: Apocalypse. He has hired Canadian Bellator fighter and celebrity trainer Holly Lawson to get a few of his young actors ready for battle. Holly Lawson is offering fans a quick glimpse into her world, with a look at just how grueling this process will be over the next few weeks.

In the photo, we see Alexandra Shipp, who will take on the younger version of Storm, and Sophie Turner, who plays a teenage Jean Grey, as they prepare for their enrollment at Xavier's School for the Gifted. Apparently, both Storm and Jean Grey will be engaged in some close-contact fighting at some point in X-Men: Apocalypse. We don't really get to see what either actress will eventually look like once they climb into their costumes, but the film is taking place in the 80s, so we can expect to »

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Cameos And Additional Cast Revealed

28 March 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bryan Singer’s X-men: Apocalypse, is among the many 2016 Superhero tentpole’s to begin principal photography next month. However, it seems that there are still some last minute casting addition’s being finalised before camera’s begin to role.

Last summer’s X-men: Days Of Future Past, was a fantastic way of revitalising the decade-old franchise, by casually rebooting the series to ensure its long-term future. Although the film promised to act as a swansong to the cast of the first trilogy, it seems that we may not have seen the last of the original X-Men just yet. Last month, Patrick Stewart seemingly revealed the great news that Ian McKellen will be making an appearence in X-men: Apocalypse. Now, a new rumour claims that he will also be joined by Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Halle Berry’s Storm.

While a cameo appearence from Jackman will surprise no one, Berry »

Terrence Malick’s upcoming music scene-set feature film starring Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman, Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett is reportedly going by the title Weightless, according to One Big Soul (via The Playlist).

The film, which is currently in post-production and will arrive after Malick’s next offering Knight of Cups, is set to follow two intersecting love triangles, and is described as “a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.”

As yet there’s no word on a release date for the film, but Knight of Cups will be with us on December 11th in the States and on January 1st 2016 here in the UK.

27 March 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, it was announced that newcomer Lana Condor will be taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee, in X-Men: Apocalypse. Now we have word of another Mutant joining the mix. Apparently 20th Century Fox is in the process of casting fan-favorite Psylocke. No actors have been mentioned at this time.

Terrence Malick's Next Film With Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara & Michael Fassbender Reportedly Gets Titled

27 March 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As always with the world of Terrence Malick, nothing is official until the movie is on the screen, so take this bit of news with a grain of salt. But perhaps, if anything, this news indicates that the director's next film is finished. According to fansite One Big Soul (via The Film Stage), Malick's next, music-scene movie starring Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett is now titled "Weightless." The intel comes from a credit sheet belonging to Supervising Sound Editor/Re-Recording Mixer Joel Dougherty who has both "Knight Of Cups" and "Weightless," credited to Malick, listed. It should be noted that this may be a working title, and Film Nation, the producers of the film, still have it untitled on their website. Here's the official synopsis:  The film follows two intersecting love triangles. It is a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, »

Fan Art: Lana Condor As 'Jubilee' In X-men: Apocalypse

27 March 2015 | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday, director Bryan Singer revealed that unknown actress Lana Condor would be playing Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse. There is very little information about Condor to be found online, but we do know she's 19, from New York, and is also a model. Pictures of the actress are also scarce, but the ever-awesome Boss Logic has taken the one that accompanied the announcement and worked some of his magic. He's decided against going with the trademark yellow trench-coat but to be fair; this is probably a lot closer to how she'll actually be depicted in the movie anyway. 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) Kodi Smit-Mcphee (Nightcrawler), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). The movie reportedly starts shooting this summer and will hit theaters on May 27, 2016. »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Bryan Singer has added a fresh face to the cast of his upcoming blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse. And in what is now his time honoured fashion, he's announced the latest casting via his social media accounts.

She's going to be taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, better known as Jubilee. She has the power of controlling energy plasmoids, in a manner akin to fireworks.
