'X-Men: Apocalypse' Art Enters the Villain's Egyptian Tomb

3 July 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, new concept art images debuted from X-Men: Apocalypse, which gave us a look at the new Cerebro, along with the Blackbird jet and the Egyptian tomb of the main villain, Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac. Today, Entertainment Weekly gives us a better look at this artwork in their new Comic-Con edition, along with some new details from director Bryan Singer. As you know, X-Men: Apocalypse rounds out the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the director teases that this new movie will essentially conclude all six X-Men movies.

"This is kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters. This is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens."

It sounds like X-Men: Apocalypse could bring the franchise full-circle, potentially ending where the original 2000 superhero movie X-Men started. »

The Best Films of 2015 (So Far)

2 July 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With the year half over, our three critics have each selected their five favorite U.S. releases of 2015 so far.

Scott Foundas

Ex Machina

Novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland’s brainy, precisely calibrated chamber drama was that rare piece of contemporary sci-fi filmmaking worthy of mention in the same breath as “Blade Runner” and “The Terminator.” Whatever this modestly scaled film lacked in budgetary heft, it more than made up for in sleekly expressive production design, provocative ideas about the fine line between man and machine, and knockout performances from Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander (as the Pinocchio-like android yearning to be a real, live girl). 

“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter”

A young Japanese woman obsessed with the Coen brothers’ “Fargo” travels to the wilds of Minnesota in search of buried treasure in this comic gem from another sibling director team, ‎David and Nathan Zellner. With deadpan elan, the »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Teases the Villain's Arrival On Set

1 July 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since X-Men: Apocalypse started shooting in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared numerous photos, featuring either his cast members or some of the sets. Today, the filmmaker shared the latest photo on Instagram, which teases the arrival of Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse. Unfortunately, we don't get to see the actor himself, but the director did show his chair, exclaiming, "Today! #Xmen #apocalypse awakens."

Hopefully it's only a matter of time before we see Oscar Isaac on set, but it is still unclear on how he will be portrayed in X-Men: Apocalypse. It's possible that we may get our first glimpse of Apocalypse at Comic-Con during 20th Century Fox's Hall H presentation on Saturday, July 11 at 5:45 Pm. It's also possible that, since the actor seems to be starting his portion of the production today, that Bryan Singer could reveal more photos between now and the convention.

So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 in the UK and May 27th, 2016 in the States, with Bryan Singer directing a cast that includes X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) and Lucas Till (Havok) along with newcomers Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, »

30 June 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | 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...

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! »
