There may be a different studio and director behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but when Episode VII opens in cinemas this December one thing that will be very familiar is the music of John Williams. The composer, who has scored all six previous movies in the Star Wars saga, has been talking to Vanity Fair on his work on the hotly-anticipated film, revealing whether he intends to revisit his iconic themes from the Original Trilogy.
“There are some scenes where we do make reference to earlier thematic pieces. We haven’t done it yet, but we’re planning to do it. It’s something that I think will seem very natural and right in the moments for which we’ve chosen to do these kinds of quotes. There aren’t many of them, but there are a few that I think are important and will seem very much »

Singer revealed the inclusion of the mutant tracker in a set photograph released on his Instagram today (May 26).
Shooting Caliban's place of "business" #Xmen #XMenApocalypse

"Shooting Caliban's place of 'business' #Xmen #XMenApocalypse," Singer hinted.
Caliban first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1981 as a member of the underground community of mutants called the Morlocks.
He was genetically altered to become one of the Horsemen of Apocalypse, and later went on to serve on various X-Men teams.
Singer is introducing a host of new mutants into his next X-Men movie, including Oscar Isaac as the megalomaniac Apocalypse, Ben Hardy as the Angel, Lana Condor as teen hero Jubilee and Olivia Munn as Psylocke.
It looks like we can add another mutant to the ever-growing roster for X-Men: Apocalypse, with Bryan Singer revealing via Instagram that Caliban is set to feature in the 2016 sequel. Singer posted the following set photo, with the caption “Shooting Caliban’s place of ‘business’…
A member of the Morlocks with the ability to sense other mutants, Caliban has also served as a member of Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen in the comic books, replacing Angel as Death.

In keeping with his steady stream of images from the set, filmmaker Bryan Singer has shared a new picture from the Vancouver soundstages of X-Men: Apocalypse teasing the appearance of a mutant we haven’t yet seen in the long-running film franchise. In the caption for the photo of the dimly lit set, Singer says he’s in the midst of shooting Caliban’s place of “business”. Caliban is an albino mutant who first appeared in the comics in 1981 and has the ability to track other mutants. However, it’s Caliban’s connection to X-Men: Apocalypse villain Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac) that probably explains his appearance in the film. In comics lore, Caliban is augmented by Apocalypse to become one of the supervillain’s four horsemen (of the apocalypse fame, obviously), so it’s a safe bet that he’ll play an integral role in the plot. However, since »

Photographer Melissa Paradis has managed to get some very nice snaps of a few of the cast members of X-Men: Apocalypse in and around the Montreal set of the movie. As you can see they're clearly not gearing up to shoot anything here, but, unlike Alexandra Shipp who's covering her (presumably) white hair with a hat, Olivia Munn's purple-tinted do is on full display as she pets her pooch. Hopefully we'll get some pics of theese guys in costume over the next few days. 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), Olivia Munn (Psylocke), Ben Hardy (Archangel), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse).

Ex Machina has been one of the biggest critical hits of the year so far - earning multiple plaudits for the quality of its leading performances. While Domhall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac have since joined up with the Star Wars universe, their co-star appears to be ready to take Hollywood by storm in her own way. Alicia Vikander received rave reviews for her bold and beguiling performance as 'Ava' - and it seems that she's piqued a lot of other directors' interest too... Deadline are reporting that Vikander is in talks to star in not one, but two action blockbusters next year - starting with Paul Greengrass' untitled Jason Bourne sequel. The new Bourne film, which also sees star Matt Damon return to the popular franchise, is currently set for a July 29 release. Following this, Vikander will then move on to Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed adaptation - featuring alongside Michael Fassbender »
Well, this is very interesting. The Pepsi sign definitely appears to indicate that the scene below from X-Men: Apocalypse is taking place in the 1980s rather than a desolate future of some sort, and it looks like Cyclops and Jean Grey are wearing costumes which are at least somewhat similar to the uniforms the youngsters have in the pages of All-New X-Men. Hey, at least it's not black leather anyway. Who they're battling isn't clear (Archangel seems like a likely candidate) or what that structure is, but common sense says it all has something to do with the movie's titular villain! As well as returning cast members Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Ian McKellen, X-Men: Apocalypse will also introduce Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, and a number of others. The movie is set to be released on May 27th, »
With a title like X-Men: Apocalypse, you already know that you.re not in for an easy-going, laidback time. And if what Oscar Isaac, who plays the title villain, says is true, we.re about to see a superhero movie on a scale we haven.t seen before, as things are going to get downright biblical. Now that production is well underway and rolling along, Isaac, who also stars in indie sci-fi hit Ex Machina and will show up later this year in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, talked to the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast about his approach to the destructive character. He says: I.ve been reading the script a lot and trying to come at.for me.a interesting angle, definitely focusing on the fact [that his character] is the embodiment of the second coming of the judgments of God and that energy going in. We're playing with »
The X-Men films have been getting bigger and bigger and X-men: Apocalypse, with its huge cast of characters and epic villain, is shaping up to be the biggest yet. Oscar Isaac, who was cast the titular villain, recently spoke with the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast where he teased the biblical nature of his character. I’ve been reading the script a lot and trying to come at — for me — a interesting angle. Definitely focusing on the fact he is the embodiment of »

The supremely talented Oscar Isaac was recently a guest on the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast recently and briefly touched on his work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and X-Men: Apocalypse. On the latter, Isaac confirmed that he's already begun filming for Apocalypse and that he's still digesting the script and developing his take on the character. "I’ve been reading the script a lot and trying to come at for me, a interesting angle. Definitely focusing on the fact he is the embodiment of the second coming of the judgments of god and that energy going in. We’re playing with that. What we are trying to do is make his philosophy and what his mission is, one that is both simple but also holds water, that really makes sense throughout the whole movie. I think Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer, we’ve been able to come up with something very cool. »

As fans, we're pumped to see any images from the movie set. And as never-say-die shippers, we're loving any photos with exes JLaw and Nicholas. (Get back together!) (#Sorrynotsorry!)

2015 has undoubtedly been Alicia Vikander’s breakthrough year with fantastic lead parts in the thought provoking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and the harrowing World War I drama Testament Of Youth, which is now available digitally and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from 25th May. However, this rise to the fore is by no means out of the blue for Vikander, who showed promise as a leading actress in A Royal Affair in 2012 and then went on to hold her own opposite the likes of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate. In this feature we take a look at the very best of Alicia Vikander.
Anna Karenina (2012)
Anna Karenina is a bold, theatrical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The film was the third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, but »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to reveal that Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are now on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, and the photo below...tells us nothing! There are obviously a lot if questions about the characters in the movie that we have though, including whether or not Beast will remain in that form for the entire thing this time around or will again be able to control it. As well as returning cast members Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Ian McKellen, X-Men: Apocalypse will also introduce Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, and a number of others.

When Oscar Isaac was cast in The Wire creator David Simon‘s limited series Show Me a Hero, plenty of people knew he was a great talent, and there was plenty reason to be interested in a series that drew the two together. Now, however, we’ve all seen Isaac in Ex Machina, not to mention the trailers […]

This December, costume designer Michael Kaplan is set to add b to an impressive CV that includes the likes of Blade Runner, Se7en, Fight Club, Star Trek and Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and during an in depth interview with Vanity Fair, the BAFTA Award winner has spoken about his work on December’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“I went up to George Lucas’s archives—huge building—and just spent a day going through sketches and looking just to get the tone of the movie, you know, in my guts and veins so that when I went to London I felt equipped and inspired, which I certainly did,” states Kaplan when asked how he went about updating the look of the Original Trilogy costumes. “The old stormtroopers uniforms would not be usable. Audiences of today have become so sophisticated that a lot of things you could get away with in the past, »
