'Star Wars 7' Broke J.J. Abrams' Back

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While everyone on the planet heard about Harrison Ford breaking his leg on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, no one reported on the other injury that happened as a result of the widely reported accident. According to director J.J. Abrams, he literally broke his back trying to help out his leading man. Don't worry, it wasn't as serious as it sounds. And the director was able to continue working through the pain.

J.J. Abrams serves as a producer on this weekend's blockbuster release Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. He stopped by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to not only promote the sequel, but also say good-bye to the host who is leaving very soon. While J.J. Abrams still won't go into specific detail about Star Wars: The Force Awakens or its plot, he did share an interesting behind-the-scenes account of the day Harrison Ford got »

'Deadpool' Trailer Is Coming This Tuesday

31 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! The Deadpool trailer will arrive this Tuesday, August 4th. And it will be coming in both the gory, blood-soaked R rated red band version that is full of vulgar language and intense violence. As well as the family friendly, all-ages green band trailer that Ryan Reynolds can proudly show off to the kids at the many hospitals he frequents as part of the Make a Wish Foundation. Yes, everyone is going to get their wish this Tuesday! And it promises to be glorious!

Since Comic-Con kicked off earlier this month, 20th Century Fox has kept it's upcoming Marvel superhero movies in everyones peripheral vision. There has been a constant flood of both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse images. We keep hearing updated story details. And there's even been a bit of controversy. First, the reveal of Apocalypse has kept a healthy dialogue going, with many fans appalled at Oscar Isaac's very blue appearance. »

What’s New on HBO Now: August 2015

31 July 2015 6:46 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, HBO adds new movies and TV shows to HBO Go and HBO Now. Here is a quick list of several titles you might be interested in. Some of these may have been on HBO previously, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.The one HBO wants you to watch: Show Me a Hero  The Wire creator David Simon returns to HBO with a six-part series based on the battle over public housing in 1980s Yonkers. Oscar Isaac stars as Nicholas Wasicsko, who served as mayor during a citywide fight over desegregation and myriad other issues. Simon is not a fan of critiquing, or even conceiving of, television on an episode-by-episode basis, so don’t expect much closure from the first third of Show Me a Hero. Do expect »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Hints That Archangel Is Coming

30 July 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we showed you new X-Men: Apocalypse photos, which featured several mutants such as Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). If those weren't enough for you, then perhaps the latest set photo from director Bryan Singer will do the trick. This image from the Montreal set features the director doing his best "air guitar" with what is assumed to be an Archangel prop. It's possible that this object, which looks like part of the character's wing, could be one of the super-sharp projectiles Archangel shoots from the forearms of his metallic suit in the comic books. But that has not been confirmed. This is the first time Archangel has been referred to by name, instead of Angel, although we don't get to see the actor who portrays him, Ben Hardy, in this photo.

Most fans assumed that Angel, a character first confirmed with a concept »

Wamg Giveaway – Win the Ex MacHina DVD and Limited Edition Poster

30 July 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ex MacHina was a classy slice of cerebral sci-fi with a literary-cinematic heritage stretching back through Blade Runner and Metropolis to Frankenstein. Director Alex Garland made an impressive debut behind camera, effectively directing with remote, minimal style. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander excelled in the film’s most important role as the sleek, sexy robot who struggles to come to terms with her humanity (or lack of it), giving a performance more about intuition and gesture than dialogue. The only real special effect in the film was the presentation of Ava with a human face, but mostly composed of wires and a partly transparent body, and it was seamless. An electro soundtrack by Geoff Barrow added to the retro sci-fi air of Ex MacHina, a terrific film. Now, Ex MacHina is available on DVD and We Are Movie Geeks wants to give away three copies. Not only that, we want to »

David Simon On HBO’s ‘Show Me A Hero': Can’t “Let Fear Guide Us” – TCA

30 July 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

“There was some resistance … the political hierarchy felt a little uncomfortably, at first, until they saw benefit in way we were using the Yonkers experience as emblematic what else is being faced in the nation,” William Xorzi says of HBO’s new six-part miniseries Show Me A  Hero, which he co-wrote with David Simon. Shot on location, the mini tells the story of Nick Wasicsko (Oscar Isaac), the youngest big-city mayor in the nation who finds himself thrust into the center… »

New Images From X-Men: Apocalypse

30 July 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

More images from next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse have come online, courtesy of Empire, giving us another great look at Bryan Singer’s fourth time at the x-bat. While a new shot of Oscar Isaac’s titular villain doesn’t do anything at all to alleviate the comparisons to Power Ranger’s Ivan Ooze, we’re also privy to new images of returning players Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence (her wardrobe showing off the movie’s 80’s setting), Lucas Till, Rose Byrne, and Nicholas Holt, and newcomers Sophie Turner and Tye Sheridan as the new look Jean Grey and Cyclops. X-Men: Apocalypse is released May 27th 2016. »

Bryan Singer On The Inspiration For Apocalypse's Villain Design

30 July 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The descriptively destructive sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse certainly took on quite the challenge when tackling its titular antagonist. While the comic book designs seemed unfeasible to adapt in a live-action capacity, director Bryan Singer reveals the mindset behind the character.s rather peculiar look in the film. In the latest issue of Empire, Singer discusses the audaciously ostentatious outfit sported by the supremely powerful mutant, En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse played by a makeup and prosthetic-packed Oscar Isaac. A rather far cry from the duds of the character.s comic book counterpart, Singer reveals a more practical pastiche approach that also hearkens back to the character.s Egyptian roots. As Singer explains: He'll be very similar to images in the comic. There's obviously something very futuristic and yet ancient to the design of both his costume and his physicality. The original comic book design of Apocalypse was likely an »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photos Feature Mystique, Beast and Hovak

30 July 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The latest issue of Empire is being quite generous with new photos. Yesterday, we got to see 8 never-before-seen images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we get a sneak peek at another highly anticipated superhero movie hitting in 2016. The magazine has debuted three new photos from X-Men: Apocalypse. Plus a high-res version of a still we've seen before that has caused some controversy.

So, it's safe to say that, a few weeks removed from Comic-Con, the look of X-Men: Apocalypse's main villain has not sat well with fans. Oscar Isaac plays the world's first known Mutant, an evil force awakened from his Egyptian tomb who goes on a quest to collect his four horsemen. In this latest high-res still, we get the same select moment that we previously saw. Oscar Isaac is flanked by Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), who both look great. Yet, he »

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.

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

27 July 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | | 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.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Shows Off Huge Egyptian Set

27 July 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Cyclops Is Lost, Angry In "X-Men: Apocalypse"

27 July 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

An old mutant getting a fresh face in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" is that of Cyclops. James Marsden played the role in the original trilogy and returned for a cameo in last year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

In the new take though, it's Tye Sheridan taking on the part and he was asked by Indiewire how his version differs to that of previous iterations:

"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where I've met a lot of my characters -- in these sort of young life transitions where they're struggling to figure things out about themselves.

He's now learning about being a mutant and trying to handle his superhero powers. The arc for »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Has A Lost, Angry Cyclops Says Tye Sheridan

26 July 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, X-Men: Days of Future Past brought mutants together from the original X-Men franchise, and from the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. Next year, fans will be introduced to more younger versions of iconic characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Jubilee (Lana Condor), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcralwer (Kodi Smit-McPhee). While discussing his new indie film The Stanford Prison Experiment, Tye Sheridan offered some insight into his Cyclops character, played by James Marsden in the original trilogy.
