So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 26th June to Sunday 28th June 2015…
Universal Pictures continued its stellar box office run this past weekend with the release of the Despicable Me spinoff Minions, which dethroned Jurassic World at the top of the UK chart with a solid opening weekend of £11,558,946. That’s a record for the franchise, surpassing the £9.95 million debut of Despicable Me 2, and the biggest ever three-day opening for an animated film on these shores.
In other good news for Universal, Jurassic World pushed its UK haul to £48.9 million and counting, making it the biggest UK release of the year, and indeed the biggest film since Skyfall back in 2012.

Ah, the Western. The gift we love to pretend has stopped giving. Periodically, a movie set in the 1800s featuring cowboys and quick-fire gun action comes along and everyone makes big statements about how it used to be a cinematic cornerstone and now, well, isn’t (for an answer to why that happened, see Toy Story).
The thing is, while the Western did decrease in prominence and certainly went away from the mainstream, it is still fighting strong. How would the annual (or, for 2015 it seems, bi-monthly) tradition of commenting on the genre’s long-past heyday still exist otherwise?
What is worth remarking on in regards to the Western is how pretty much every noteworthy recent entry in the genre (even, to a degree, the dire Cowboys And Aliens) has been about the “End of an Era”; True Grit juxtaposed growing up with the death of the »

They are also joined in the cast by James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, returning to their roles in the series, with Oscar Isaac arriving as the villain Apocalypse.
It seems that Alexandra Shipp's Storm will have a shaved head in Apocalypse based on a recent Instagram post. »
X-Men: Apocalypse is currently filming in Montreal, under the direction of Bryan Singer. The film closes out the X-Men trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, with the story set in 1983. While several cast members from the aforementioned two movies are returning, there are several new actors coming into the fold, including Olivia Munn as Psylocke. We haven't seen her in costume on the set yet, but the actress revealed a new video on her Instagram page, where she shows off her new swordplay skills.
We haven't seen many photos from the set lately, since production has moved indoors in Montreal, but hopefully we'll get our first official look at Olivia Munn in costume as Psylocke soon. The actress is seen practicing with a fake katana sword, the character's trademark weapons from the X-Men comics. We still don't know »
In a joint marketing exercise between the festival and Transmission Films dubbed Sff Presents, Farrant.s feature debut starring Nicole Kidman, Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes opened on about 25 screens on June 11.
.We played very limited festival sessions at each location, rather than traditional seasons. We've had numerous sell-outs, which is why many locations carried the film over. It continues this week..

While it may not be as prevalent as it once was, the Western refuses to go away. It’s genre that has evolved in the face of its waning popularity, clear cut battle of white hats against the back hats giving way to an entire deconstruction of the genre, and now recent years have seen a rise in movies celebrating the Western, from the knowing homage of Django Unchained or a loving tribute in the vain of The Salvation. Now, John McLean wades in with his directorial debut, Slow West, taking the spirit of the genre and giving it a spin all this own. A founding member of Scottish experimental musical group The Beta Band, McLean’s breaths an air of the eccentric into the familiar tale of Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit McPhee), a young immigrant who has travelled from “the cold shoulder of Scotland to the baking heart of »

Slow West, 2015.
Written and Directed by John Maclean.
A young Scottish man travels across America in pursuit of the woman he loves, attracting the attention of an outlaw who is willing to serve as guide.
The western film is dead say some, a lost art of genre that very rarely makes the mustard with Hollywood these days amongst the multi-million pound extravaganza’s that are slowly clogging up cinemas quicker than you can say Fast & Furious. But the myth that westerns just don’t work in modern cinema is a ridiculous premise. Anyone who saw Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman last year will agree that when they are done right and with care and love, they are marvellously entertaining and cling to an old-fashioned part of cinema that is slowly, and sadly, being eradicated.

In this excerpt from this week's Guardian film show Xan Brooks, Peter Bradshaw and Catherine Shoard review Michael Fassbender as a wobbly-moraled bounty hunter in Slow West, a surreal western about a young Scottish boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who teams up with a mysterious stranger (Fassbender) to cross 19th-century Colorado. The directorial debut of ex-Beta Band member John Maclean, Slow West is released in the UK on Friday 26 June

It’s only slow in the way a rattlesnake or a predatory killer is slow. This terrific film is actually tense, twisty and brilliant. Don’t be put off by the dull poster or the heartsinking critical talk since its Sundance premiere about it bringing a “European” sensibility to the western. Writer-director John Maclean makes a lethally stylish feature debut with this tale of murder and survival in the old west. He has put together a drum-tight picture with elegant and dust-dry humour; it’s wonderfully shot by cinematographer Robbie Ryan, and Maclean incidentally brings off a brutally outrageous digression that would make Quentin Tarantino proud.

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 19th June to Sunday 21st June 2015…
Universal’s box office juggernaut Jurassic World has retained top spot here in the UK, pulling in a whopping second weekend haul of £11.1 million to leave its gross on these shores just shy of £40 million so far.

Number one this time last year: The Fault in Our Stars
1. Jurassic World – £11,133,912 weekend (2 weeks)
2. Take That Live £965,000 weekend (New)
3. Spy – £922,399 weekend (3 weeks »

The Old West becomes a distant dreamland as seen through the eyes of Kodi Smit-McPhee, playing a Scottish lad who crosses an ocean and navigates hostile territory to find the girl he loves. Substance doesn't quite match up to the high style of this ethereal western, but Michael Fassbender lends weight as the gruff gunslinger who rides along with the kid, shooting holes through his romantic view of the world.
Jay Cavendish is only 16, fresh-faced (almost a blank canvas in McPhee's rendering) and ripe for a kicking in the backwoods of Colorado where he finds himself in 1870. He strays into the crossfire when a local tribe of Indians are hunted like animals through the trees, a situation that clearly offends Silas (Fassbender) who appears from nowhere to put an end to »
Looking for a quality western to stick on your top ten films of the list year? Then try Slow West, a movie that achieves plenty in its slender 83 minutes running time. It stars Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee, and has been directed by John Maclean (who also wrote the film).

One important note: we don't charge for these screenings, but please do not treat this as a competition. »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
