Hugh Jackman Will Play 'Wolverine' One Last Time!

28 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It seems like just yesterday, Hugh Jackman was boldly proclaiming that he wants to play Wolverine until he dies. But that sadly may not be the case. In a rather cryptic Instagram that arrived with no other information, Hugh Jackman posted a photo of his claws, stating: 'Wolverine...One Last Time.' What does this mean? Is he done with the character? It's also not clear if he is actually referring to Wolverine 3, which is set to shoot in 2016. He was recently rumored to be cameoing in X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool, but that has never been confirmed.

It's unlikely that X-Men: Apocalypse will be Hugh Jackman's final turn as the indestructible Mutant Logan, as he and director James Mangold have been working on the Wolverine 3 story for quite sometime now. This isn't the first time the actor has declared that he is done with the character, either. He has »

'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 »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Casting Psylocke?

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.

Psylocke, whose real name is Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock, has a storied history in the Marvel comics. She was first introduced in Captain Britain #8 in 1976. 10 years later she took over the role of Captain Britain from her twin brother in 1986's Captain Britain #12. She was first introduced as Psylocke a year later in 1987's Uncanny X-Men #213, and then two years later she became Lady Mandarin in 1989's Uncanny X-Men #256. Hailing from Braddock Manor, England, Psylocke can generate a telekinetic katana, or direct her telekinesis through her fists to strike as if she had superhuman strength; she is »

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. »

X-Men: Apocalypse finds a new Jubilee

25 March 2015 11:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bryan Singer adds Lana Condor to the X-Men: Apocalypse cast, as Jubilation Lee will be joining the roster...

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.

In this case, he's taken to Instagram to reveal that relative newcomer Lana Condor has picked up a role in his new X-Men movie. 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. Jubilee appeared in the original X-Men (where Katrina Florence played her), and in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand (where Kea Wong took on the role).

Here's the picture of Lana Condor, that Singer posted.

Returning for X-Men: Apocalypse are James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, »

Our Favorite Films From SXSW

25 March 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Kelly and Aaron both had the chance to go to SXSW this year and cover it for Cinelinx, here's their top movie recommendations that they had the chance to see and you need to see once they're released.

Kelly's SXSW Top 3

1. The Final Girls 

This film took me by surprise, in all honestly I was debating on not going but decided last minute to see it and I am glad I did. I was expecting it to be it a little entertaining because it does have an all star comedy cast including Adam Devine and Thomas Middleditch but i was blown away. With hilarious diagloue and a great meta storyline about modern day teens getting stuck in a 1980's sleep away camp horror, be sure to keep this one on your radar for it's release date. It's one of the most original movie concepts I have seen in a long time, »

Ben Mendelsohn Circling Star Wars Spinoff Rogue One

25 March 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even if the films turn out to be terrible, it’s impossible to deny that Lucasfilm has been knocking it out of the park in terms of casting their Star Wars movies. Of course it helps when you have a property that everyone wants to be a part of, but the eclectic ensemble of Star Wars: The Force Awakens—with Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega and more set to occupy the same screen—is downright brilliant. Then the next Star Wars movie, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ spinoff Rogue One, started off on the right foot by casting Felicity Jones as the lead, and now it looks like the studio will continue its run with word that the phenomenal Ben Mendelsohn is mulling over joining Jones in the Rogue One cast. The folks at Deadline report that the Australian Animal Kingdom actor is “circling »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Adds Newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee

25 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though she currently has no credits on her IMDb page at this time, Lana Condor's first entry will be huge! The virtually unknown actress has landed a prime role in X-Men: Apocalypse. She will play one of the youngest team members to ever fight alongside Professor Xavier and his school of extraordinary students. That's right, Lana Condor is taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee.

While X-Men: Apocalypse is confirmed to take place in the 80s, Jubilee didn't become popular in the comic books until the early 1990s, often playing sidekick to Wolverine. She was first introduced in Uncanny X-Men #244, which was published in 1989. Created by iconic X-men writer Chris Claremont and artist Marc Silvestri, the character's mutation allows her to create and control energy plasmodia that are similar to fireworks. The actress has appeared in the movies before, first in 2000's X-Men played by Katrina Florence and »

Live action Star Wars TV series rumoured to be in development

25 March 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If six new Star Wars films were not enough to fill your boots in a galaxy far, far away – we have a hot new rumour for you today!

According to Cinelinx (via /Film), Disney are developing a live action Star Wars TV show that will use the same constructed sets at Pinewood Studios in London as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The sites also report that the show will act as a bridging gap between the three new movies, with the show shooting in the interim between the films using the soundstage.

This is of course not the first time we’ve heard of a Star Wars themed TV show. Prior to George Lucas selling the franchise to Disney, he was planning a live action show of his own, which never got out of development stage.

As always, this is just a rumour for now. But given how much »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Shoots in April, Mutant Cameos Revealed

24 March 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While there's still much we don't know about X-Men: Apocalypse, it has been confirmed that the story will be set in the 1980s and it will round out the trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story is said to focus primarily on the younger mutants from those aforementioned movies, but a new rumor surfaced today that reveals X-Men: Apocalypse will also feature two cameos from fan-favorite X-Men characters, along with the introduction of a new mutant. There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk. If you are not averse to spoilers, take a look at what Latino Review's El Mayimbe has to say, which includes the production start date for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Three X-Men favourites rumoured to cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse

24 March 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Bryan Singer’s next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, will once again focus on the First Class team rather than the old guard as he did with X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that’s not to say that some of the older X-Men folk will be shying away from the movie.

According to the chaps over at Latino-Review, principal photography of X-Men: Apocalypse is set to start next month and among those called in are Hugh Jackman to reprise his role as Wolverine (no surprises there), Halle Berry as Storm (some surprises there) and Channing Tatum as Gambit (many surprises there!). Other rumours also state that Sir Ian McKellen is also going to come in to feature as Magneto once again.

With Tatum, it makes sense for 20th Century Fox to use this movie as a launch pad for Gambit’s solo movie, which is set for »

Oscar Isaac Hints That He'll Return For Star Wars: Episode 8, Then Backpedals

24 March 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Lucasfilm is getting ready to release Star Wars: Episode 7 this December 18 and introduce the world to a new trilogy with all-new characters. That includes Oscar Isaac.s Poe Dameron (which sounds more like the name of an off-brand anti-depressant medication you hear about during TV commercial breaks). Fans are already speculating which of the cast members will be living long enough to make it to the sequel, Episode 8, and so far most of them seem like they will. However, Isaac recently hinted that he is returning for the next chapter.  A Moviefone reporter recently asked Isaac if he was excited to work with Rian Johnson, the man directing Star Wars: Episode 8. The actor confirmed that, yes, he is "very excited." However, we shouldn.t get too amped over this, as Isaac also clarified that he hasn.t yet spoken with Johnson. Furthermore, SlashFilm followed up with him after »

Jennifer Lawrence Confirms ‘Apocalypse’ is Her Last X-Men Film

23 March 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lawrence confirmed that “X-Men: Apocalypse” would be her last film in the franchise in an interview MTV News released Monday.

“It is my last one,” Lawrence said when asked if it would be her final X-men film. (She drops the bomb around the 3:25 mark.)

Lawrence played sexy blue mutant Mystique in “X-Men: First Class” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” Mystique will reportedly play an even larger role in the plot of “Apocalypse.”

X-Men: Apocalypse” will also star series regulars including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne, plus Oscar Isaac and Kodi Smit-McPhee, both new to the franchise. Sir Ian McKellan or Patrick Stewart will not be returning, however. Bryan Singer will direct.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Is Final Sequel for Jennifer Lawrence

23 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, it was reported that X-Men: Apocalypse will most likely mark Nicholas Hoult's final performance as Beast for the franchise. Now, in a new interview with MTV, co-star Jennifer Lawrence is stating the same thing. Though, where Nicholas Hoult claimed he'd return if asked, Jennifer Lawrence seems pretty confident that this latest franchise sequel will mark her last appearance as shape shifter Mystique. When asks if she is done after her third go at the character, she quite simply states:

"It is my last one. Yes."

Bryan Singer is set to return for X-Men: Apocalypse, which is confirmed to take place in the 80s. While no other story details have been released, it has long been confirmed that the movie will serve as the end of a trilogy which began with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Jennifer Lawrence says X-Men: Apocalypse will be her last X-Men movie

23 March 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Hoult revealed that his contract as Beast is up with next year’s Bryan Singer-helmed sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, although the British actor admitted that he’s open to the idea of signing on for more mutant adventures.

Well, it seems that Jennifer Lawrence’s contract to play the shape-shifting mutant Mystique is also set to expire after Apocalypse, but unlike Hoult, it seems she’s ready to call time on the franchise, with the Oscar winner telling MTV News that: “It is my last one, actually.”

Since signing on to play Mystique in X-Men: First Class, Lawrence has become one of the biggest stars in the world (and the most-bankable of 2014) – thanks in no small part to her role in both the X-Men and The Hunger Games franchises, as well as her Academy Award win for »
