X-Men: release dates for three new films confirmed

5 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 24, 2017

New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix will all be arriving in cinemas in 2018...

20th Century Fox is set to make 2018 the year of X-Men movies it seems, with a trio of them set to land in cinemas.

First up will be New Mutants, the movie that The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone is set to start filming shortly. That’s been given a release date of April 13th 2018.

Just six weeks later, Ryan Reynolds is back in what I think we can comfortably say is his most popular screen role. Under the stewardship of director David Leitch, he’ll be back as Deadpool, with Deadpool 2 due in cinemas on June 1st 2018.

Finally, there’s the official X-Men sequel, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. This had been going under the working title of X-Men: Supernova, and we know that Simon Kinberg had been working on a screenplay, »

Centered around the powerful mutant Jean Grey, Aka Phoenix, the storyline was previously the focus of 2006’s poorly received “X-Men: The Last Stand.” Famke Janssen played Grey in the original trilogy, while Sophie Turner of “Game of Thrones” now portrays the iconic mutant. Writer/producer Simon Kinberg previously told Entertainment Weekly that he “definitely would love to take another stab at the Dark Phoenix story.”

Fresh from setting dates for James Cameron’s four Avatar sequels, 20th Century Fox has now officially announced three X-Men movies for 2018.

As yet, there’s been no official confirmation as to whether X-Men writer and producer Simon Kinberg will make his directorial debut on Dark Phoenix, although he is rumoured to be the number one contender.

Meanwhile, Fox has also announced that Shane Black’s The Predator has been pushed back from February 9th 2018 to August 3rd, as has the Jennifer Lawrence headlined The Red Sparrow, which will open on March 2nd 2018 rather than its previously announced November 10th 2017 date.

X-Men 7 Gets Titled Dark Phoenix, Sophie Turner Will Return

22 April 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox is going to town today, announcing release dates for quite a few anticipated movies. Amongst these various titles, we have confirmation that Fox is planning not one, not two, but three new X-Men movies for release in 2018, mirroring what Disney and Marvel are doing with their McU. And they've finally confirmed that X-Men 7, as long rumored, is moving forward under the title Dark Phoenix.

It should be no secret that Fox has been planning a reboot of the classic Dark Phoenix storyline from the X-Men comics. 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, the third movie in the franchise, already covered this ground. But most fans thought director Brett Ratner, who took over for Bryan Singer, handled the material very poorly. Now, Fox is aiming to tell this story the right way.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dark Phoenix will have fan-favorite mutant Jean Grey in the lead. The »

22 April 2017 11:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It took 20th Century Fox long enough. But we finally have an official release date for Deadpool 2. The movie has been given some prime summer real estate with a June 1, 2018 launch. Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson, the Merc with a Mouth, and this time out, he'll share top billing with Josh Brolin, who'll be making his X-Men debut as time traveling mutant Cable.

20th Century Fox has also announced a number of other release dates, including Steven Spielberg's Pentagon Papers drama starring Tom Hanks, Bryan Singer's Bohemian Rhapsody, two more Marvel superhero movies that include the X-Men spin-off, New Mutants and the sequel Dark Phoenix, and lastly Steve McQueen's Windows. But who cares about any of that? Deadpool 2 is the hot ticket item here.

The New Mutants Begins Pre-Production

10 April 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The X-Men franchise is certainly in a phase of rapid growth. After resting firmly on its main line of films for the last fifteen years, over the past year or so, they’ve made deliberate attempts to reach beyond it. Yes, they had the Wolverine films, but last year, they expanded beyond Wolverine with Deadpool, and very soon, they’ll also be introducing The New Mutants through a new, Ya-ish film from The Fault in Our Stars director, Josh Boone.

It’s been just south of two years since Boone was attached to the film, and Boone has been keeping us along the ride for some time now through his social media. We’ve seen pictures of his first drafts, and we’ve since also seen those go through rewrites, which included reuniting with the writers behind The Fault in Our Stars. But to be honest, it’s been a »

Future Star Wars Movie and TV Plans Revealed?

30 March 2017 3:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last weekend, Disney CEO Bob Iger raised some eyebrows when he revealed that the studio and LucasFilm are developing at least 12 more Star Wars movies that will be rolled out between now and the year 2030, which essentially falls in line with an earlier report that claimed Disney wanted to release at least one Star Wars movie a year, indefinitely. After Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters in 2019, the immediate future of this franchise is unknown, at least in terms of what is being developed next. Today, a new report has surfaced, which provides details for three new Star Wars spin-offs that are being developed. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Making Star Wars has a new report from the same source who reported that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will explore three iconic planets, Endor, Tatooine and Mustafar. Their source claims that there »

Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer Flirt in ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ CinemaCon Trailer

30 March 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Without words, Michelle Pfeiffer and Johnny Depp give each other the eye in new footage for Fox’s “Murder on the Orient Express.”

The studio unveiled a new trailer Thursday morning at CinemaCon. Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench, Leslie Odom Jr., Lucy Boynton, Tom Bateman, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi make up a supporting cast for Kenneth Branagh, who stars as Hercule Poirot. Depp is the murder victim, an American tycoon aboard the train.

“I see evil on this train,” a voiceover intones. The trailer features shots of Ridley, Dench and Odom Jr. in the lavish dining area of the Orient Express. The train soon comes to a screeching halt as Branagh — with blonde hair and a massive grey mustache — begins investigating the murder.

The footage was preceded by Branagh in a video from Malta where he’s filming the project.  “This is not only a who dunnit and how dunnit, it’s crucially a why dunnit, »

X-Men TV Series The Gifted Begins Production With A New Bts Image

23 March 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production is now officially underway on Fox’s new family drama series, which will be set in the X-Men universe. A couple of weeks ago, the first image of the cast gathered together for a reading made its way online, accompanied by a caption that suggested the show would be titled Gifted. Today, however, we have a new behind-the-scenes photo which confirms it’ll actually be called The Gifted. Not a huge difference, obviously, but it does somewhat alter the connotation of the moniker.

The pic was shared by long-time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner, and gives us a glimpse of pilot director Bryan Singer behind the camera, as the show’s female lead, former Angel alum Amy Acker, performs a scene. The context of what’s going on is unknown, but it’s definitely nice to get a look at the in-development series, as it does sound promising.

Woody Harrelson Is Not Playing Garris Shrike in Han Solo

23 March 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney and LucasFilm's highly-anticipated Han Solo spin-off started production in London last month, with the studio releasing the first official photo, featuring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, along with Emilia Clarke and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, whose characters have not yet been confirmed. The photo also featured Woody Harrelson, who confirmed in an interview just a month before filming started, that he is playing the iconic character Garris Shrike, who first appeared in the 1997 novel The Paradise Snare, and was seen as a criminal mentor to Han Solo in the years before A New Hope. Now it seems that the actor may be playing the same character, but with a different name.

While promoting his new movie Wilson on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the late-night talk show host brought up his new Star Wars movie. While the actor wouldn't say much, »

Could Green Lantern Corps be heading for a 2018 release with David Goyer at the helm?

20 March 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Warner Bros. could very well be stepping up the pace with the DC universe in a bid to try and catch-up with Marvel’s dominance of the big screen with a possible fast-tracking of Green Lantern Corps to be released next year alongside James Wan’s Aquaman.

With currently five DC projects under their wing for their next potential release, Green Lantern Corps is looking to pip the rest to the post with screenwriter David Goyer, currently tipped to take the helm on Suicide Squad 2, taking up its director’s chair according to The Tracking Board.

Jeff Sneider told Meet The Movie Press

“I’m hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself. When you look at screenwriters that are taking the plunge and directing these movies themselves, we saw rumours last month that Simon Kinberg was going to direct the next X-Men movie. »

FX has renewed Marvel Comics-inspired drama “Legion” for a second season.

The cable channel announced the renewal Wednesday ahead of the premiere of the series’ sixth episode. The season finale is slated to air March 29.

Created and executive produced by “Fargo” showrunner Noah Hawley, “Legion” is the first live-action television series based on Marvel’s “X-Men” comics. It tells the story of David Haller, a man who has been told his whole life that he is mentally ill, then discovers that what he thought were symptoms of his illness may actually be manifestations of a mutant superpower.

“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” said FX original programming co-president Eric Schrier. “More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero genre.

James Mangold Finally Explains Why Caliban Appeared In Both Logan And X-Men: Apocalypse

14 March 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Trying to figure out the timeline of the X-Men Universe requires a genius level Iq and a lot of patience, and where Logan fits into things is hard to say. It seems to reference X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a movie wiped out of continuity by X-Men: Days of Future Past, while also loosely tying into both that and The Wolverine.

Confused, yet? Well, one thing which fans have been questioning for a while now is how and why Stephen Merchant could be Caliban after Tómas Lemarquis played the same character – a good 50 or so years earlier in history terms – during the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. Thankfully, Logan director James Mangold has now offered an explanation, but those of you hoping for one which will make sense of this muddled timeline will probably be disappointed by what he has to say.

Alexandra Shipp In For Next X-Men Movie? Actress Wants To Complete Storm’s Arc

14 March 2017 6:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s no secret that the cinematic X-Men universe tends to be a little confusing – you know it, I know it, and, frankly, the Merc With a Mouth knows it, too. “McAvoy or Stewart? These timelines are so confusing.”

But if there’s one positive to be pulled from the convoluted heap, it’s that Fox’s prequel movies lend a new generation of acting talent the chance to portray some of the franchise’s more iconic mutants. From Professor X to Magneto, Jean Grey to Storm, it’s these younger characters that have since gone on to become the focal points of First Class, Days of Future Past and last year’s divisive X-Men: Apocalypse. And, pending contract negotiations, most, if not all of those characters will be returning for the next, as-yet-untitled X-Men movie.

To date, we’ve caught wind that Sophie Turner and James McAvoy are all »
