An ancient mutant will attack the 1980s in 2016's new X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Here's our look ahead...
If the double-bill disappointment of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine couldn’t kill the X-Men franchise, nothing can. Now that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past have got the series back on track, there’s no stopping Fox’s mutant movies.
However, there’s one upcoming X-film that promises a bigger scale, a more dastardly villain and the biggest collection of dodgy haircuts than any of the rest. That film would be X-Men: Apocalypse.
This one’s the next team-based instalment, and it will focus on the recast protagonists introduced in First Class, picking up after their adventure in Days Of Future Past. »
During an interview with Collider to discuss the upcoming release of The Martian, producer Simon Kinberg has been talking about Fox’s next Marvel offering X-Men: Apocalypse, describing it as the culmination of a trilogy featuring the younger X-Men: First Class cast.
“[X-Men: Apocalypse] delivers on the dramatic story and emotion of the last two movies. It feels like the culmination of the four main characters really — James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence. And it’s a bigger movie in both physical scale and I would say emotional stakes too because it is the culmination of this mini trilogy of stories.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 in the UK and May 27th, 2016 in the States. The cast includes X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters »

If First Class carved out a new pocket in the X-Men lore and Days of Future Past blended the old with the new, then next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse very much represents the culmination of Fox’s so-called “mini-trilogy,” according to producer Simon Kinberg, who spoke recently with Collider about Bryan Singer’s tentpole feature.
On the eve of The Martian‘s international release – said to arrived tethered with the first trailer for Apocalypse – Kinberg spoke briefly about the upcoming threequel, and why he believes it’s a bigger movie not only in terms of physical scale, but also the emotional spectrum that Singer explores.

It’s worth noting that Simon Kinberg referred to X-Men: Apocalypse‘s culmination in relation to its four core characters – Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence – rather than bringing closure to the entire franchise. Though now that »

The nuances of Chloë Grace Moretz’s performance as Abby, a young vampire stuck in a small town, are apparent in this lengthy audition video for “Let Me In,” a horror thriller written and directed by “Felicity” creator Matt Reeves, who also directed “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” Starring opposite young actor and on-screen friend Kodi Smit-McPhee (“Slow West”), and Richard Jenkins as her guardian, Moretz is convincing as the introverted adolescent who is careful about who she lets in.

Production wrapped last month on X-Men: Apocalypse, which begins the lengthy post-production process under the direction of Bryan Singer. While it may be quite some time before we see the first trailer, new cast member Olivia Munn took to her Instagram page to show off one last video of her training, with the actress showing off her impressive moves with a samurai sword. The actress said this was, "One last freestyle session for the road," meaning this may be the last of her training videos we see before the first trailer arrives.
Of course, this isn't the first time Olivia Munn has showed us her fighting skills. The actress has sent out numerous Instagram videos as production was under way in Montreal. Hopefully we get to see how the actress' sword fighting skills translate to the screen in the first trailer, but we're not sure when that will debut yet, »
Bryan Singer has often been criticized for a lack of faithfulness to the source material, but when it comes to Psylocke, the X-Men: Apocalypse director has pretty much nailed it. Olivia Munn is a casting decision fans have been behind since day one, while the costume – an element of these movies Singer has got wrong many times in the past – is undeniably a perfect adaptation from the comic books.
This week, the actress shared a new training video on her Instagram account showing off her amazing sword skills, and it instantly becomes clear from watching this that Psylocke will be just as much of an ass kicker in X-Men: Apocalypse as she is in the source material.

Munn has clearly been giving her all to the role to do the character justice as well, and with so many mutants in the movie, here’s hoping »

We’ve already had a batch of official stills and that low-quality cam footage from San Diego Comic-Con, but now, we have word on when the first trailer for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is expected to debut.
According to Heroic Hollywood’s sources, the trailer will be attached to screenings of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, which is set for an October 2nd release. Now, usually a trailer will show up online before being show in theaters, so with that in mind, there’s a pretty good chance we could see our favourite mutant heroes in action again within the next couple of weeks – or at the very least, be treated to another round of promotional images.

Of course, that’s if this is accurate. Whenever a studio has an imminent theatrical release, there’s always speculation that they’ll take the opportunity to »

We've seen many actors commit to their roles over the years, but Olivia Munn has evidently turned herself into an actual ninja for her upcoming turn as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse. The Newsroom actress has posted yet another (and apparently her last) short demonstration of her fighting prowess, confirming once and for all that Psylocke is going to a force to be reckoned with in the movie. Rumor has it that the first official trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be with us in just a couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for any promotion that might signal its arrival. One last freestyle session for the road... #DaxGymMontreal @teambillieve @karine_lmx A video posted by Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) on Sep 12, 2015 at 8:43am Pdt X-Men: Apocalypse stars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, with newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy and Olivia Munn. »
Sure that lousy quality footage from San Diego Comic Con leaked online, but now we may know when we'll get to see Bryan Singer's merry band of mutants in action again, officially. According to Heroic Hollywood's "multiple sources", the first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will be attached to screenings of Ridley Scott's The Martian on October 2. Now if that's true, it'll most likely debut online first, so there's fair chance we could see it towards the end of this month - and there's almost certainly going to be some official stills between now and then too. Again, if this is true! I have heard a few things myself but dismissed it as speculation until now, so we'll see what happens. Keep an eye on Cbm for updates.

In a recent interview with IGN, X-Men: Apocalypse co-writer Michael Dougherty has revealed more about what to expect from the big bad of the highly anticipated movie, teasing that he'll be more relatable than expected due to the fact he hails from a time when mutants were worshipped, not hunted and feared. He also comments on where the X-Men franchise will likely go next. As well as returning cast members Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: Apocalypse will also introduce Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, and a number of others. The movie is set to be released on May 27th, 2016. Be sure to watch the video below for further details! »
Principal photography on X-Men: Apocalypse wrapped in Montreal just a few weeks ago, with the highly-anticipated superhero movie now starting post-production. We got to see a number of images from the set during production, many of which came from director Bryan Singer himself. Today, new photos have surfaced from the post-production process, courtesy of X-Men Newz, which gives us a new look at the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), and our best look yet at Archangel (Ben Hardy).
We have previously seen Apocalypse in the teaser trailer that was shown during 20th Century Fox's Comic-Con panel, but this photo gives us possibly our best look at the villain yet. We have also seen Archangel's costume design before, but today's image gives us our first look at Ben Hardy on the set, pictured alongside Olivia Munn's Psylocke and both of their respective stunt doubles. Another photo reveals a number of these »
Following some leaked images of the character from San Diego Comic Con, we got our first official look at Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse via a magazine cover. But now a new image has surfaced online, which has a more traditional look for the character, which you can view below:

Update: And here’s two more set images, featuring Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), along with Angel (Ben Hardy), Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and their stunt doubles…

Someone is going to be in trouble for this! A new photo has found its way online from the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, and as you can see, it shows off Ben Hardy's Archangel costume in its full glory. We've caught glimpses before now, but no doubt the most intriguing feature here are those facial tattoos. This clearly isn't the classic Warren Worthington III from the comic books anyway. Oh, and Olivia Munn still looks downright amazing. Many thanks to Cbm user Levitikuz for the heads up! As well as returning cast members Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: Apocalypse will also introduce Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, and a number of others. The movie is set to be released on May 27th, 2016. What do you guys think of this first look at Archangel? »
The first official images of Oscar Isaac as En Sabah Nur from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse did not go down too well with a lot of fans, many of whom took issue with the everything from his purple tinted hue, to his slightly too human looking features, to… well, the fact that he did kind of resemble Ivan Ooze from the Power Rangers.
Well, either that Sdcc footage and those early stills were not a very good representation of Apocalypse’ appearance in the final film, or Fox and Singer have taken the negative reactions on board and made a few changes – because the leaked image above that hit the web today is a much better interpretation of the Marvel Comics character, and just a lot cooler looking in general.
Of course, it’s still hard to tell how exactly the titular villain will look on the big screen, and »

Either those first official images and the leaked footage from Comic-Con featured an unfinished look at Oscar Isaac's Apocalypse or Fox has taken fan complaints/ridicule about his purple hue to heart and since decided to fix his colouring with a more classic greyish blue in post. Either way, X-Men: Apocalypse's titular villain looks a lot better in this leaked image from @XMenNewz! As well as returning cast members Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult, X-Men: Apocalypse will also introduce Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, and a number of others. The movie is set to be released on May 27th, 2016. What do you guys think of this new look at Apocalypse? Update: Another leaked image has now surfaced, confirming the legitimacy of the first. As you can see, it features Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Nightcrawler in - sigh, »

The film is set in 1881, with Eastwood starring as William Munny, a retired outlaw who returns to the trade after years of settling down as a farmer. Celebrated for its moral ambiguity and noir atmosphere, the film simultaneously debunks and pays tribute to one of cinema's most established genres by expertly juxtaposing violence and »

How soon will it be before we see Olivia Munn facing off against Ronda Rousey on the big screen? Probably sometime in the very near future, if the latest X-Men: Apocalypse video is any indication. It was announced yesterday by director Bryan Singer that X-Men: Apocalypse has officially wrapped first unit shooting. And then shortly after, Olivia Munn released yet another behind-the-scenes video of her intense martial arts training. Why is she still doing this?
It appears the former talk show host-turned-actress is continuing to define and perfect her kick-ass kickboxing skills for future superhero movies. While it was thought that all the main actors had wrapped, perhaps she is being called in for some second unit shooting? Or she already knows that she is required to return for reshoots at some point in the future. Maybe, just maybe, she is going to keep perfecting the skills she learned on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, »
