'X-Men: Apocalypse' Standee: New Mutants Vs. the Four Horsemen

4 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Mutant fans visiting the local multiplex between now and May will encounter some of their favorite characters in larger than life form. A new theatrical standee has arrived for X-Men: Apocalypse, and it shows the main cast suited up in their new costumes. Main villain Apocalypse looms large in the background, as his Four Horsemen stand divided from Xavier's New Mutants. Who will win this war? With heavy hitters on both sides, that's a tough one to call.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set in 1983, 10 years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story centers on the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who is awakened after thousands of years of slumber, as he assembles his Four Horsemen, Psylocke (Olivia Munn), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Angel (Ben Hardy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Magneto has been living in exile after X-Men: Days of Future Past, and director Bryan Singer revealed last month »

X-Men: Apocalypse Theatre Standee Features New Looks At Most Of The Characters

4 February 2016 5:46 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A cool new standee for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is starting to appear in theatres, and as you can see, it gives us a look at pretty much all of the merry band of mutants assembled – the only notable absentees being Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops, Lana Condor’s Jubilee and Rose Byrne’s returning Moira McTaggert.

Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) looms large at the back, while left to right we have his Four Horsemen: Ben Hardy as Angel, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Olivia Munn as Psylocke and Michael Fassbender as Magneto. Then there’s the X-Men themselves: Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Nicholas Hoult as Beast and newcomer Sophie Turner as Jean Grey. Crouching in front is Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, and finally James McAvoy as the now bald Professor X.

While the Horsemen are all wearing fairly comic-accurate costumes, many fans are disappointed that the X-Men »

How Professor X And Jean Grey's Relationship Is Different In X-Men: Apocalypse

1 February 2016 4:31 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

X-Men: Apocalypse will see a whole host of new actors take over some of the franchises most popular characters. Tye Sheridan will replace James Marsden as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp takes over Storm from Halle Berry, Kodi Smit-McPhee is a younger incarnation of Alan Cumming’s Nightcrawler, and Sophie Turner replaces Famke Janssen as Jean Grey. Talking about her version of the character, the Game Of Thrones star admitted that she has a very different relationship with James McAvoy's Charles Xavier than Famke Janssen’s version had with Patrick Stewart's. In fact, while talking to Digital Spy about her portrayal of Jean Grey, Sophie Turner even insisted that she is like a surrogate daughter to James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier.  They have this unspoken bond because he's telepathic as well, he's gone through the same things. He's very powerful and »

Heroes And Villains Stand Tall In Promo Banner For X-Men: Apocalypse

31 January 2016 8:53 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that it’s currently being somewhat overshadowed by the likes of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse definitely feels like one to watch this year. With director Bryan Singer finally bringing the huge action that fans expect from comic book movies to the franchise and Oscar Isaac cast as the iconic Apocalypse, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to here.

This weekend, a new international promo banner surfaced for the film, and it puts the spotlight on an unusual mixture of characters. Along with Charles Xavier now very much in full on Professor X mode, we see two of the Four Horsemen in Magneto and Storm as well as two X-Men members Beast and Quicksilver.

Is this just a random assortment of X-Men: Apocalypse characters thrown together to promote a new car, or is it a sign of a team-up to come? »

Bryan Singer says James Cameron offered advice on the end scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past

22 January 2016 3:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During IGN’s visit to the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer revealed that he sought out advice from James Cameron on 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, owing to Cameron’s experience dealing with time travel on The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And while Cameron’s input was minor, he did offer one significant suggestion for the final scene where Wolverine wakes up in the new timeline at the end of the film.

“I sent the film to Jim, and at the end of that movie, it was very interesting; when Wolverine woke up, originally, my editor was obsessed with this visual blurriness, so when Wolverine’s walking around he’s seeing things in kind of a blur,” states Singer. “So I sent that to Jim, and Jim called me and goes, ‘Bryan, that blurry thing made me think that the wool was going to be pulled out from under me, »

Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer open to revisiting X-Men’s Dark Phoenix Saga

22 January 2016 11:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Among the numerous criticisms aimed at X-Men: The Last Stand was the film’s rather poor attempt at adapting the Dark Phoenix Saga storyline. Well, now that X-Men: Days of Future Past has erased that movie from the timeline, and X-Men: Apocalypse is reintroducing Jean Grey with Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, might we see a second stab at the iconic story arc?

“I think everything that hasn’t been told from First Class and Days of Future Past is up for grabs going forward, so it would absolutely be a story we could tell in a different way,” Simon Kinberg (a screenwriter on X-Men: The Last Stand) tells IGN. “We definitely explore how powerful [Jean Grey] is in this movie, and that can be something that is empowering and something that is dangerous.”

Psylocke and Storm featured in new X-Men: Apocalypse image, Simon Kinberg explains how they chose their Four Horsemen

21 January 2016 12:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With numerous X-Men: Apocalypse set visit reports popping up around the web, Screen Rant has debuted a new image of Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp) from the upcoming mutant superhero movie…

Psylocke and Storm will be joined by Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Angel (Ben Hardy) as part of Apocalypse’s (Oscar Isaac) Four Horsemen, and producer Simon Kinberg has revealed the process that he and Bryan Singer went through to select the foursome during an interview with Collider:

“Fassbender was the first person that we decided would be an interesting Horseman,” states Kinberg. “And then truly we just kind of sat there the way that anybody would, rather you were in a role-playing game or a video game or doing fan fiction, and it was like who are the coolest characters you wanna see? And who are interesting combinations with one another, and who are interesting foils for the heroes of the movie? »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' New Photos; Singer Makes 'Game of Thrones' Comparison

20 January 2016 11:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This summer, the X-Men trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued with 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to a close with X-Men: Apocalypse. The story is set in 1983, 10 years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, centering on the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and his plan to conquer the world. Yahoo! Movies UK spoke with director Bryan Singer on the set, where he compared this upcoming action-adventure to the beloved HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones.

"I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan. There's a crossover between X-Men and Game of Thrones, they're both about a younger generation finding their powers, finding out who they are, and what their place in the world is. I like how the show's about different groups of people moving towards a common goal. They don't even know if that's the right goal, who wants to sit on that uncomfortable throne? »

Simon Kinberg says X-Men: Apocalypse is “biggest X-Men film we’ve ever done”

17 January 2016 11:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s a big year for 20th Century Fox and its superhero movies. First up out of the gate is the R-rated Deadpool, followed by Bryan Singer’s latest X-Men adventure X-Men: Apocalypse – the first instalment in the “rebooted” timeline following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

During a fan Q&A, writer-producer Simon Kinberg has been discussing the new X-Men ensemble, calling it the biggest X-Men film to date, owing to Apocalypse’s (Oscar Isaac) “extinction-level threat to the world.”

“I think in some ways it’s the biggest X-Men film we’ve ever done,” states Kinberg. “We’ve never done one of these movies where the whole world — there’s like an extinction-level threat to the world. The whole world’s at stake… [Apocalypse] is  more interested in the sort of survival of the fittest. The strongest, no matter what they may be, surviving and making essentially a better world. »
