Just in time for Cannes comes the first official artwork for David Hayter's Wolves that some may find just a bit too Twilight-esque, but hey... Jason Momoa and Stephen McHattie are in it so we're all in no matter what!
The film, which writer/director Hayter previously described as "Twilight with a bit more bite to it and without abstinence," stars Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class), Jason Momoa (Conan, "Game of Thrones"), and Merritt Patterson (The Hole, "The Selection") along with Stephen McHattie, Kaitlyn Leeb, Simon Northwood, and John Pyper-Ferguson. Hayter is best known for writing/co-writing Watchmen, X2, The Scorpion King, and X-Men.

Stop me when this one sounds familiar:
A dour and quiet high school girl has a secret crush on a handsome and athletic boy, but since she can't have him she snaps and starts killing people all around the poor good-lookin' idiot. Sound familiar? Novel? Exciting? Then perhaps you need to see movies like Play Misty for Me, Fatal Attraction, The Crush, May, and -- dear lord -- Swimfan, because the blandly-titled "new" movie called Crush is little more than a tiresome collection of the most memorable things in those movies.
It's certainly not a crime to borrow from well-known thrillers but if you cannot bring at least one small kernel of originality (or at least novelty) to your own movie, it's pretty damn tough to imagine why a movie watcher would want to spend 93 minutes on it. To its mild credit, Crush does manage to throw a few curveballs »

Obsession is definitely a word that’s pretty familiar when going through high school. Everyone and their mothers have been into someone who just didn’t give them or their hormones the time of day. Well, a hell of a lot of teenage hormones and some pretty interesting craziness take up director Malik Bader’s obsession gone wrong movie Crush, a film that starts out pretty strong, only to leave viewers with a great big wtf?
Popular soccer player Scott has pretty much everything going for him, until an accident leaves him with a bad knee and a bruised ego. While Scott tries to recover by working out, running and everything in between to get his knee better, Bess, a shy lonely girl begins an unhealthy obsession with him. Throw into the mix Jules, a girl who wants to be more than friends with Scott, Jeffrey, who is obsessed himself with Bess, »
Crush is definitely the Swim_fan of the current “CW” generation of horrors. It’s a story that’s been seen again and again, whether in big screen adaptations such as The Roommate or made for teevee Lifetime over the top presentations, it’s a pretty worn out plot line. Luckily for Malik Bader and cast, they manage to breathe a little bit of fresh air into the horror trope and present an entertaining teen thriller.
The movie centers around Scott (Lucas Till, X-Men: First Class), an up and coming high school soccer star who is definitely catching the eye of numerous ladies in town. After an accident and surgery, Scott is training himself back up to speed when people around him start getting harassed, injured, and a number of other things that jump the scale of danger in every scene. Jules (Sarah Bolger, The Moth Diaries) is Scott’s »
Havok does not seem likely to return for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Filming on Bryan Singer's latest instalment in the 20th Century Fox franchise is due to begin within days.
"You know what, I wish I could tell you, but unfortunately I still can't give you an answer," he told Shock Till You Drop.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will debut on July 18, 2014.

It might be officially time to sing Lucas Till's "X-Men" swan song. The "X-Men: First Class" actor claims he still hasn't been asked back for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and considering the movie starts shooting in Canada in three days, it seems unlikely that he'll be coming back at all.
When ShockTillYouDrop asked Till straight out if Havoc will be returning in "Days of Future Past," he said, "You know what? I wish I could tell you, but unfortunately I still can’t give you an answer." Though that seems like it gives a pretty clear answer about Havoc's status, there always is a chance director Bryan Singer could bring Till to set later on in the shoot.
Till would join the increasing list of "First Class" actors who aren't coming back, including January Jones and Caleb Landry Jones. "First Class" stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence »

"I always try to make a great film. Also to challenge myself with genre. I may not always serve your favourite meal but other folks may enjoy."
So said director James Mangold on his Twitter page as he unleashed first a 'Tweaser' - his phrase for a Twitter video teaser - and then the full two-minute teaser trailer for Hugh Jackman's next solo mutant adventure The Wolverine.
Both videos are included here, along with a set of four new images that were released by 20th Century Fox.
The essence of the story appears to be that Wolverine is feeling the burden of the immortality granted by his mutant healing powers (and helped a lot by the protection of his adamantium-coated skeleton). And then someone offers to make him mortal again.

Australia has two major genre film festivals of note: A Night of Horror, dedicated to horror flicks (duh); and Fantastic Planet, the sci-fi/superheroes/fantasy domain. This year, both festivals have "joined forces" to form a mega-fest the likes of which Australia has never seen. (Or maybe they have. I've never been to Australia.) The festivals are not merging into one; they are simply running in tandem so you can get all your weird cinema in one, concentrated heap.
Fantastic Planet will be debuting their Launch Pad program at this year's fest. Developed to "provide a solid starting point for genre feature films just commencing their festival run," three films have been chosen for the inaugural run: A Dark Matter, directed by James Naylor (Twisting cerebral sci-fi thriller);
The Taking, directed by The BAPartists (Deep and disturbing art-house horror); and Wet and Reckless, directed by Jason Trost (Hilarious buddy caper-cum reality TV parody).

It has been well establish that superhero films have basically become their own genre. Their popularity and sheer volume has placed them into their own unique category. We are also beginning to see subcategories emerge within superhero films that twist and turn the typical format we have come to expect. The film All Superheroes Must Die is one of the newest examples of this phenomenon. It takes the archetypal heroes we recognize and places them into dark and perverse world we would normally associate with a horror film. That juxtaposition of genre is clever premise which could provide a much needed boost to a genre that can easily become stale. Regrettably the final product does not live up to the promise of that potential. Being a small »

January Jones told Collider that the diamond-skinned mutant Emma Frost won't be seen in 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past." After landing one of the more prominent roles in the fairly crowded "X-Men: First Class" (at least what was considered crowded before "Days of Future Past" turned into a mutant clown car), Jones has learned that Frost and Magneto have parted ways in the time lapsed between films.
"I haven’t been asked back," she told Collider. "It’s called 'Days of Future Past' or something. No, they’re going into another time period, or they’re going back and forth from different time period and Emma’s not in that. Not in what they’re doing." At least, despite her hesitation, Jones did get the title of the film right.
Jones was uncertain of her return back in January, so this report confirms what we already suspected. »
