John Ottman Confirmed To Return As X-men: Apocalypse Composer

26 February 2015 11:59 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  If you liked the scores of X-Men 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, then you'll love X-Men: Apocalypse next year as it has been confirmed by Film Music Reporter that John Ottman has officially signed up to return for the movie. Some fans preferred Henry Jackman's take on the mutant characters in X-Men: First Class, but Ottman's work in last year's "inbetweenquel" was still great. For those of you needing a reminder, this one will star Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, and franchise newcomers Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, and Ben Hardy. Bryan Singer will direct and Simon Kinberg is writing. X-Men: Apocalypse is set to be released on May 27th, 2016.  »

5 X-Men Characters Ben Hardy Could Play In Apocalypse

25 February 2015 5:59 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Earlier this week, former East Enders star Ben Hardy was cast in X-Men: Apocalypse. Unfortunately for fans, who he.s playing wasn.t disclosed - so we have no idea whether he.s playing someone not yet seen in the X-Men films, or a younger version of a familiar character. All we know at this point is that he will appear alongside other young costars including Tye Sheridan as Cyclops (which Hardy was originally being considered for), Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm and Kodi-Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. However, that doesn.t mean we can.t make a few educated guesses about his character.s identity. There are a few names that pop out more than others when taking into account the film.s titular villain and that James McAvoy.s Professor X has a brand new generation of students he.s teaching. X-Men: Apocalypse is being set »

U.K. Soap Star Ben Hardy Set To Join X-Men: Apocalypse

25 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that the recent headline-grabbing live episodes of U.K soap opera Eastenders have provided something of a showcase for series regular Ben Hardy, as The Wrap reports that he is now in talks for a significant role in X-Men: Apocalypse. While Hardy has 188 episodes of the soap under his belt, he had apparently screentested for the X-Men role of Cyclops, before being rumoured for the role of Angel. The part he may ultimately play in the movie, however, is described as “key” and “important.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is the upcoming sequel to 2014’s box office hit, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and is the newest instalment in the X-Men franchise. Based on the Marvel comic series, the titular superhero team are comprised of mutants – born with superhuman abilities and spurned by humanity – who fight for peace and equality. The franchise currently comprises of five films, with two spinoff films »

British TV Actor Ben Hardy Gets Mystery Role in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

25 February 2015 7:52 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another mutant has joined the ranks of X-Men: Apocalypse. Just after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Kodi Smit-McPhee was hired to play Nightcrawler in the next installment of the X-Men series, albeit in a new timeline, The Wrap reports Ben Hardy, the British television star of the UK series "EastEnders," is in talks for a key role in the film. Funnily enough, Hardy was up for the role of young Cyclops before it went to Tye Sheridan, and there have been rumblings that he might play a young version of Angel. However, the source notes that other insiders say that he's playing another mutant, though specifics are under wraps. Hardy joins a big cast that includes returning X-Men franchise stars Hugh Jackmanm Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy and Evan Peters, not to mention the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert after sitting out »

Eastenders Star Joins X-Men: Apocalypse In “Significant” Role

25 February 2015 6:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC / Marvel Comics

Eastenders actor Ben Hardy is swapping Walford for Bryan Singer’s big screen X-Men world.

After missing out on the role of young Scott Summers, Ben Hardy is joining Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse in an unknown role. Variety is reporting that the mystery character is a “significant” one from the Marvel comic book world.

Given Hardy’s appearance, the early speculation is that the role in question could be that of Warren Worthington III. Commonly known by the name of Angel, the character has also had his darker moments alongside the villain Apocalypse, in which he then has the Archangel moniker.

Already confirmed for Singer’s next venture into the X-world are returns for James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira McTaggert, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. New additions include Tye Sheridan as the young Scott Summers/Cyclops, »

Ben Hardy circling X-Men: Apocalypse mystery role

25 February 2015 3:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to TheWrap, Bryan Singer has found yet another young cast member for X-Men: Apocalypse, in the form of EastEnders actor Ben Hardy.

Unfortunately, we have no idea who Hardy will be playing, as the role is “another important [one] that is being kept under wraps.”

Hardy was one of the actors who tested for the role of Cyclops, which ultimately went to Mud‘s Tye Sheridan. The new report claims that while he was rumored to be playing Angel, “insiders” claim that that’s not the case. Whether or not Angel is actually in the film is, like a lot of things surrounding this project, still a mystery.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, »

Ben Hardy Joins X-Men: Apocalypse

25 February 2015 12:46 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There is no word on who Hardy will be playing, but the role is said to be 'significant' to the X-Men universe. With no idea of where the story is going, and over three hundred characters introduced in the X-Men comics to choose from, there's really no way at this time who he'll be playing.

Ben Hardy Joins The Cast Of X-men: Apocalypse

24 February 2015 3:05 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tye Sheridan may have landed the part of the younger Scott Summers in X-Men: Apocalypse, but it seems director Bryan Singer was impressed enough with Ben Hardy's audition to cast the young Eastenders actor in another role. Who will be be playing? Well that seems to be a mystery for now, and the only other details we have on the character is that he's "significant to the X-Men universe." The Wrap does also report that he was at one time rumored to be up for Warren Worthington/Angel (so that may at least confirm the winged mutant's appearance in the movie) but that insiders now say it's another "key role" that's being kept under wraps. Whoever Hardy is playing, he joins Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters May 19, 2016. »

Gallipoli's understated drama deserves an audience – why isn't it getting one?

22 February 2015 5:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Channel Nine’s Anzac series is willing to invest in a story and characters who could have been outshone by a patriotic fireworks display – but are we?

Gallipoli and The Secret River: challenging Australia’s foundation myths

Channel Nine’s Gallipoli opened with a daringly quiet, almost non-event of a beach landing in its first episode. “There was no slaughter on the beach. Just scattered Turkish sentries firing down on us,” Thomas “Tolly” Johnson (an excellently cast Kodi Smit-McPhee) timidly relates to us.

It was an important tonal statement, the non-threatening crackle of distant gunfire countering the expectations of those of us who were seeking an action-packed burst of jingoistic valour.

Evan Peters on Quicksilver's Return in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

20 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more popular elements of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past was the introduction of Quicksilver, played by American Horror Story star Evan Peters. While doing press for his upcoming thriller The Lazarus Effect, in theaters February 27, Evan Peters confirmed that he will return as Quicksilver in X-Men: Apocalypse, although he isn't quite sure what's in store for his character yet. Here's what he had to say below:

"I think so, yes. I assume it as well, but I don't know what I'm supposed to say and not supposed to say. I haven't seen a script."

When asked if his schedule has been worked out yet, and when he will start production, the actor remained tight-lipped.

"No. We'll see. I think... I don't know what I can say and what I can't say. All I can say is that I have not seen a script yet."

All The Wilderness Review

20 February 2015 11:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All the Wilderness is caught somewhere between a terrific short film and a tender, sensitive coming-of-age drama. Without credits, Michael Johnson’s film is 71 minutes long, which is too brief to fully explore the pain and pleasures experienced by young protagonist James Charm (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Meanwhile, given how the stakes are low and the themes repeat throughout, a 30-minute version of the same material could have been more focused and affecting. Alas, the film must cope with a slender running time.

Although his surname is Charm, James is anything but charming. Obsessed with the macabre, he draws sketches of dead birds and insects in his notebook, and also tells the school bully he expects him to die within the next year. (That altercation gives James a black eye.) Mom Abigail (Virginia Madsen) doesn’t know how to deal with her son’s morbidity, especially after the death of her husband. »

Week in Review: Jessica Williams responds to ‘Daily Show’ hosting pushes

20 February 2015 8:55 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When it was announced that Jon Stewart would be leaving The Daily Show, the Internet responded in turn by nominating some viable candidates (you can read our list here). At the top of most packs was Jessica Williams, the 25-year-old black comic who has been the show’s most surprising correspondent addition in years and has proved herself to be acerbic and hilarious when talking about issues related to feminism, Beyonce, or black hair.

In fact, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 even includes a scene set in 2025 where Williams has nestled comfortably into the hosting chair. If the Cubs can win the World Series in Back to the Future 2, that prediction is good enough for me!

Williams however, despite being very humbled, tweeted that she was “under qualified” for the position, presumably with the idea that she’s only 25 and has a whole career ahead of her to do whatever she wants. »
