Unused Apocalypse concept art from X-Men: Apocalypse

2 July 2016 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks ago we brought you some comic book faithful concept art for Apocalypse from this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse [see here], and now we have a look at some more unused designs for Oscar Isaac’s villain, with Jared Krichevsky sharing the following artwork to Twitter showing En Sabah Nur with and without a space helmet…

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-men: Apocalypse. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. »

X-Men: Apocalypse crosses $500 million at the worldwide box office

19 June 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may not have set the domestic box office alight, with just $146.1 million to date, but thanks to strong international performance X-Men: Apocalypse has now crossed the $500 million mark worldwide, becoming only the third X-Men movie to do so.

The Bryan Singer-directed sequel pushed its cumulative gross to $510.1 million this weekend, with 72% of that figure coming from the international markets. However, it remains some distance behind franchise leader Deadpool, which has earned $780.5 million this year, along with Singer’s previous offering X-Men: Days of Future Past, which grossed $747.9 million back in 2014.

So X-Men: Apocalypse hasn’t lit the world on fire. Sitting in the awkward place between commercially and critically beloved (Captain America: Civil War) and commercially and critically disappointing (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Apocalypse was lost in the superhero shuffle, being neither good nor great. ‘X-Meh’, as Slash Film’s review so succinctly put it.

But no fear, Captain Hindsight is here! Oli reckons he knows how the overstuffed, underdeveloped plot and characters of X-Men: Apocalypse could have been better served: split the film in two, a la the final Hunger Games and Harry Potter movies…

International screenings save X-Men: Apocalypse at the box office as it crosses $400 million worldwide

6 June 2016 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Among a sea of mediocre reviews [read ours here, here and here], Bryan Singer’s mutant movie X-Men: Apocalypse has not been performing too well in its domestic release. However its international screenings are really helping push the movie further up the success chart.

Now in its second week, X-Men: Apocalypse dropped 66% to $22 million, losing the top spot to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. It now boasts a domestic total of $116 million, with a projected overall total of $160 million – which is what X-Men did back in 2000 and where X-Men: Days of Future Past was in just ten days. Two weeks into its release, and it still isn’t in the domestic top 40 of the highest grossing superhero movies, currently behind Green Lantern and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Thankfully for 20th Century Fox, the international screenings have really helped. It earned an estimated $84 million worldwide over the weekend, $59 million of which »

Bryan Singer would like to see a Mystique solo movie, with or without Jennifer Lawrence

3 June 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an appearance on the Empire Film Podcast, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has suggested that he feels the character of Mystique is ready for her own solo movie, even if Jennifer Lawrence opts against renewing her contract with 20th Century Fox.

“I think she’s right for [a standalone film], whether it’s Jennifer or not,” said Singer (via Screen Rant). “She has this different view of the world: Xavier can get into Cerebro and look at the world but he’d rather just teach classes and see the beauty of mutants and humans co-existing in his mansion in Westchester. Along comes Raven with a reality check on the state of the world. It opens up a lot of avenues.”

Bryan Singer to take a break from the X-Men franchise

1 June 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer has taken his tally of X-Men movies up to four (or five, if you include his producing duties on X-Men: First Class), and it seems he’s now ready for a break from the mutant superhero franchise.

“I recently met Danny Boyle — he and I have known of each other for many years but never met,” Singer tells the La Times. “He was prepping Steve Jobs at the time and I was doing this and he said, ‘Are you going to be doing X-Men movies forever?’ And I didn’t actually say no. The reality is, even though I’m very desperate to jump to something completely different, I’ve spent so many years in this universe and I love this cast and the characters so much, I just don’t see myself abandoning them forever. Perhaps as a consultant, as a producer, »

X-Men: Apocalypse enjoys $80 million domestic opening weekend as Alice Through the Looking Glass bombs

31 May 2016 5:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Apocalypse debuted in the States this past Friday, with the latest instalment of Fox’s mutant superhero franchise enjoying an $80 million domestic opening over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, with $65.3 million of that coming from the Friday-Sunday period.

“We’re very happy with this result as we introduce new characters in the X-Men universe,” states Fox domestic distribution chief Chris Aronson. “And for us to be at this number globally already means we’re in good shape.”

X-Men: Apocalypse opened lower than Bryan Singer’s last X-Men offering X-Men: Days of Future Past, which grossed $110 million in its first four days, while February’s Deadpool set a franchise high with a three-day opening weekend of $132.4 million.

Is There More To Mystique And Nightcrawler's Relationship Than X-Men: Apocalypse Revealed?

29 May 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Spoiler Alert: The following article contains minor spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse. If you haven.t seen the film yet, and don.t wish to know any details, please click away to another one of our wonderful articles! In one of the earliest scenes in Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Apocalypse, we watch Jennifer Lawrence.s Mystique as she finds herself on a mission in Germany. It seems that she has discovered the existence of a fight club that pits mutants against mutants while they are contained in an electrified cage. During this bit of espionage, Mystique winds up rescuing a young Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), eventually getting him to Xavier.s School For Gifted Youngsters, but the sequence has left us asking a big question: why did Mystique only rescue Nightcrawler and not Ben Hardy.s Angel? It.s just speculation, but if the X-Men movies are taking elements from the comics, »

Movie Review – X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

28 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Apocalypse, 2016.

Directed by Bryan Singer.

Starring James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Sophie Turner, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Hardy, Olivia Munn, Lana Condor, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till, and Hugh Jackman

Synopsis:

With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.

“You can fire your arrows from the Tower of Babel… but you can Never… Strike… Gooooooooooooddddd!!!” – An enraged yet collected Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac has no time for dance numbers in this one).

Not to compare X-Men: Apocalypse or the franchise to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the one consistent flaw that can be lobbed at those films is a lackluster villain with poorly defined and/or generic motivations. There are a couple of good ones here and there, but Marvel has basically reached a point where Captain America »

Why Nightcrawler Looks So Different In X-Men: Apocalypse

28 May 2016 10:23 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is finally out in theaters and, while it.s getting mixed reviews from critics, it.s taking down all competition in the box office. Despite how you may feel about the movie, you have to admit if there.s one thing an X-Men movie usually does well, it.s the makeup effects on the characters. The makeup on Mystique is always impressive, and say what you want about Apocalypse, but at least they went for it. Another character that boasts an impressive design is Nightcrawler, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee. Adrien Morot, head of the makeup effects department, recently shared with The Hollywood Reporter why the new Nightcrawler looks so different from Alan Cumming's in X-Men 2. Kodi is a younger-looking actor than Alan was in X-Men 2. Also, Alan was a grey-black in the original movie, and they had a problem lighting him. So we had to make sure »

X-Men: Apocalypse Review: Marvel Franchise Takes Step Back Despite Bryan Singer, Challenging Themes

27 May 2016 6:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' with Oscar Isaac in the supervillainous title role. 'X-Men: Apocalypse' review: Step back for series, but latest 'X-Men' movie 'works well enough' There's a three-way brawl going on in the Marvel universe, but it doesn't involve Spider-Man, Captain America, or Deadpool. Instead, the combatants are the three major movie studios who've divvied up the film rights to Marvel characters in licensing deals, some of which go back decades. In this corner we have Sony, makers of a Spider-Man series that has sunk so low since 2004's Spider-Man 2 that they punted the character back to our second combatant, Marvel Studios. In 2004, after years of seeing the majors compromise their intellectual property by making horrible film adaptations, they decided to finance and produce their own damn movies, in what would develop into an unprecedented winning streak. To this day, just when you think they're finally out of gas, Marvel »

Bryan Singer rules out a director’s cut of X-Men: Apocalypse, talks deleted scenes

27 May 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With X-Men: Apocalypse opening in the States today, director Bryan Singer has been chatting to Fandango about the movie, during which he confirmed that unlike X-Men: Days of Future Past, there will be not additional director’s cut or extended version of his latest foray into the world of the X-Men.

“There will be nothing like the Rogue Cut or anything like that”, Singer told Fandango. “I’m not a big fan of director’s cuts or extended editions, I never have been. In the case of Apocalypse, I removed what would be considered a conventional amount from the movie to protect what we call the collective experience of the feature theatrically. How it feels pace wise and movement wise.”

Olivia Munn wants Psylocke to join Deadpool in X-Force movie

27 May 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Promoting the release of X-Men: Apocalypse in an interview with USA Today, actress Olivia Munn has expressed her hope that she’ll get to reprise the role of Psylocke alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth in 20th Century Fox’s planned X-Men spinoff X-Force.

“That would be a really cool thing to do,” said Munn. “What [Reynolds] did with Deadpool was genius and I’m so excited for him. It would definitely be cool to see Deadpool and some of the other X-Men characters gather for an X-Force movie. I think that’s what the whole world is coming to — everybody unites together, right? It’s never just one character anymore. We all just become one movie.”

Fox has been developing an X-Force movie for several years now, with Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) originally attached to write the script [check out some early concept art here]. However, it looks like the project is being revamped post-Deadpool, »

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Review #2

27 May 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Lucas Till, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Hardy, Alexandra Shipp, Lana Condor, Olivia Munn | Written by Simon Kinberg | Directed by Bryan Singer

X-Men: Apocalypse storms (see what I did there?) into theaters this Friday, May 27 and attempts to right the timeline that was left a muddied mess after the X-Men: Days of Future Past film.

Bryan Singer returns to the directing chair once again and as the architect for the X-Men universe, his attempt to streamline the franchise has only made it more confusing.  It might be an overload of sub-par superhero films recently, minus the latest Captain America film, or it just might be the lack of good X-men films but X-Men: Apocalypse is a boring, bloated mess that is just a grade above Days of Future Past in terms of quality. »
