Sophie Turner Takes A Walk Near X-men: Apocalypse Set; Stuns In New Glamour Photoshoot

5 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Sophie Turner's character on HBO's Game Of Thrones has had a rough time of it recently, but she should get the chance to have a little more fun when she portrays the younger version of telepathic mutant Jean Grey in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse. Turner recently returned to Montreal to shoot more scenes for the film, and was photographed walking around near the set - displaying the character's signature red locks, though presumably not in costume. We also have some pics from her shoot with Glamour Magazine. Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Lana Condor (Jubilee), Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Ben Hardy (Archangel), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). The movie will hit theaters on May 27, 2016. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Video Has Olivia Munn Training as Psylocke

29 June 2015 12:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is currently filming in Montreal, under the direction of Bryan Singer. The film closes out the X-Men trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, with the story set in 1983. While several cast members from the aforementioned two movies are returning, there are several new actors coming into the fold, including Olivia Munn as Psylocke. We haven't seen her in costume on the set yet, but the actress revealed a new video on her Instagram page, where she shows off her new swordplay skills.

We haven't seen many photos from the set lately, since production has moved indoors in Montreal, but hopefully we'll get our first official look at Olivia Munn in costume as Psylocke soon. The actress is seen practicing with a fake katana sword, the character's trademark weapons from the X-Men comics. We still don't know »

'Star Wars 7' Rumor May Confirm Who Rey Is or Isn't

29 June 2015 12:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the full cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was announced last April, fans wondered how new cast members Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) fit into the story. Over the past year, their characters were eventually confirmed, and fans should learn much more about the highly-anticipated sequel at Comic-Con this year. While we wait for the annual convention to start, a new rumor from Making Star Wars reveals new details about Rey and the other main characters' parents. There will be potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

There has been plenty of speculation that at least some of these characters are the offspring of Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) or Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). For instance, Rey is reportedly "drawn to" the Millennium Falcon and she "instinctively" knows how to repair it

Olivia Munn Demonstrates Her Impressive 'Psylocke' Sword Skills For X-men: Apocalypse

28 June 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Olivia Munn is evidently taking her role in X-Men: Apocalypse pretty seriously anyway. The actress will play Psylocke, who in addition to her telepathic mutant abilities is also an incredibly proficient martial artist and swordswoman. Munn posted the below video to her Instagram, and as you can see she's clearly been practising hard. We still haven't seen Munn in costume (the closest was this pic of her near the set sporting purple-tinted hair), but this is a pretty cool taste of what we can expect when Psylocke gets physical in the movie.   Learned some new tricks... A video posted by Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) on Jun 28, 2015 at 2:35pm 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), Lana Condor (Jubilee), Ben Hardy (Archangel), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac »

Here's How the Incredible VFX in 'Ex Machina' Came Together

26 June 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This article was originally published on the Film Independent blog and has been republished here with permission. Read More: Why 'Ex Machina' Writer-Director Alex Garland Doesn't Consider Himself a First-Time Filmmaker Grantland writer Kevin Lincoln summed up "Ex Machina" beautifully when he wrote, "It's a story about artificial intelligence, not-artificial intelligence, trust, love, parenthood, sincerity, watching Oscar Isaac exercise, the ethics of surveillance, the future of the human race, and beer." For us at Film Independent, the film—with its incredibly alluring fembot in the leading role—is also a fantastic opportunity to explore the magical world of VFX, and the role of a VFX supervisor. We recently spoke to the film's VFX Supervisor Andrew Whitehurst, who works for Double Negative, the large visual effects company based in London that "Ex Machina" director Alex and his production company, DNA Films, had approached to work on the film. »

Greg Grunberg says Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all about “the story and family”

26 June 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one thing Star Wars: The Force Awakens has done well (despite its heavily publicised production) is keeping its story a secret. We’ve had two trailers already, but we don’t actually know all that much about the plot of J.J. Abrams’ new adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

One of its stars Greg Grunberg however has given some details about the theme of the movie in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I can only say that practical effects are as important—if not more important—than the special effects,” the actor said. “And it’s all about the story and family. I mean that’s what J.J. is all about. And these new characters, these actors are unbelievable. They’re so well cast. We got our script pages, only the scenes that we were in. Not even what was being shot that day! »

New Projects: Bradley Cooper, Lbj, Reese Witherspoon, and Meg the Shark

19 June 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After American Sniper was the biggest box office draw of 2014, it seems anyone will pay to see Bradley Cooper in uniform again. Deadline reports Cooper is set to produce Ghost Army, a World War II story about an agency tasked with feeding the Nazis fake intelligence about the actual number of American troops, with the hope that Cooper will star. Cooper, Todd Phillips, and Andrew Lazar are producing a script by Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo), working from a non-fiction book entitled The Ghost Army of World War II and a 2013 documentary also titled Ghost Army.

Not even a year after Tom Wilkinson portrayed Lyndon B. Johnson in Selma, Woody Harrelson will now portray our former president in Rob Reiner’s political drama simply titled Lbj. Via Variety, production will begin in the fall on a film about the life of Johnson up through his childhood and how he was »

Earlier this week, we brought you our first look at Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (before Disney made us take them down), and now we have our possible first look at her brother Luke Skywalker.

The folks over at TheForce.net have posted the below image which shows Mark Hamill as Luke with his grey beard and metallic hand. They don’t say where they got the image from, so this is far from official.

Possible Spoilers – Pictures of more returning characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Greg Grunberg’s role revealed?

19 June 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – possible spoilers below…

Since the announcement of the movie, we’ve known that the likes of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia would be back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there have been plenty of rumours about other possible returning roles (but not Lando it would seem). Well, starwars7news.com believes it can confirm two returning characters, along with information on a new one.

If you’re a fan of Return of the Jedi, you are in luck. According to the website, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will see the return of Nein Nunb and Admiral Ackbar. Check out the photos below that the site claims are 100% legit:

Obviously we don’t know if this is true or just a wild Bantha chase, but the website is very sure these are genuine. And to back that up, they have the first image of Greg Grunberg in the movie, »
