X-Men: Apocalypse: Climax will forever change the X-Men universe, says Simon Kinberg

24 April 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

X-Men: Days of Future Past weaved its story of mutant revolution through real-life history – but its sequel X-Men: Apocalypse will alter the very foundation of the franchise.

The upcoming Bryan Singer movie introduces the infamous Marvel villain Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) as a power-mad mutant bent on destruction of humanity.

Speaking to IGN, producer Simon Kinberg revealed that the events of X-Men: Apocalypse will also impact spinoffs Gambit and Deadpool.

"Things that happen in one film are acknowledged in other movies," he said. "The aftermath of… Apocalypse is something that will alter the course of history, and much the same way that Days of Future Past did because the end of Days of Future Past was from the end of 1973 forward."

The producer continued: "The world knew about mutants [after X-Men: Days of Future Past]. A mutant took a football stadium and dropped it on the White House.

"That's not the history that we were raised on. »

Oscar Isaac talks X-Men: Apocalypse and the Four Horseman

24 April 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following his adventure in a galaxy far, far away this December in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac is set to take on the role of the titular villain in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during an interview with IGN to promote his latest film Ex Machina, Isaac shared a few thoughts on Apocalypse’s motivation, and his recruitment of the Four Horsemen.

“Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool. It’s very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of – the way that cult leaders do – they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them – as it relates to every one of the Horseman… On an individual level he’s able to reveal the true power of his Horsemen and what’s true to them.

Tribeca: Slow West, a Mythical Neo-Western, and Far From Men, a Desolate Algerian War Drama

21 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

A neo-western that operates in purely mythic terms, Slow West evokes an 1870 America steeped in isolation, heartbreak, suffering, and misery. Expertly written and directed by John Maclean, this spartan story recounts the efforts of well-to-do young Scotsman Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee), who travels to America — and westward, ho! — to find the girl he loves (but does not love him back), Rose Ross (Caren Pistorius). Along his journey, he is saved by, and then forced to pay for, the bodyguard services of Silas (a stoic Michael Fassbender), a quiet-spoken roughneck with a cigar perpetually stuck in the corner of his mouth and a curious interest in Jay’s quest that, it’s soon revealed, stems from his own desire to find Rose — who, unbeknownst t »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Will Change the Franchise's Universe

20 April 2015 2:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Later this month, production will begin in Montreal on the highly-anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse, which will be the last installment of the new trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. We know the story is set in the 1980s, but very few plot details have been confirmed at this point. The movie, set for release on May 27, 2016, will also be bookended by two new movies that take place within the X-Men cinematic universe, Deadpool (February 12, 2016) and Gambit (October 7, 2016). Writer/producer Simon Kinberg revealed some new details about the upcoming installments.

"That has the same kind of integration. It's a smaller group. All of the films are aware of each other. I know what's happening in each story, of each of the movies and they certainly acknowledge each other. Things that happen in one film are acknowledged by the other movies.

Tff 2015: Game Day Kicks Off With Bangs, Hangs, Schlongs and Unreal Goings-on

19 April 2015 11:51 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s early Friday morning here in New York and rather than living it up in the city that never sleeps, I’m sitting here… at my computer, staring – no that’s not right, glaring sounds more like it – hoping that the words to sum up the experiences of Day 1 at the Tribeca Film Festival will magically appear on screen for me, doing justice to the films I’ve seen today and not coming across like I’m gloating about viewing some amazing films yet to slated in the UK.

Pfft bugger that – I’m going to crow til the cows come home.

Day 2 here at Tff 2015 kicked off with a literal bang and has kept me on my toes for the rest of the day. I’ve had violent delights with John Maclean, experienced a mid-morning bout of melancholy thanks to Jeppe Rønde and his thought provoking film (which »

'X-Men': Anna Paquin Wants to Play Rogue Again

19 April 2015 11:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans will get to see much more of Anna Paquin's Rogue in the "Rogue Cut" of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which doesn't have a confirmed release date. We reported earlier this month that the Blu-ray and DVD release will have over 17 minutes of never-before-seen footage of Rogue, whose part in the film was cut substantially. With X-Men: Apocalypse starting production this month in Montreal, it isn't known if the actress will be back as Rogue, but she took to her Twitter page today to reveal that she would love to play Rogue again, if they give her character the power to fly.

"if I get to fly, absolutely"

When asked if her comment means that she actually isn't interested in playing Rogue again, the actress clarified by saying Rogue has the ability to fly in the comic books, but she has never gotten to fly in any of »

John Ford's Stagecoach and The Searchers, Howard Hawks's Rio Bravo and Red River, and Clint Eastwood's The Outlaw Josey Wales and Unforgiven come to mind for Ben Mendelsohn, who stars with Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee in John Maclean's untamed Slow West. He has recently been seen in David Mackenzie's prison drama Starred Up with Jack O'Connell, Kevin Macdonald's treasure-hunting tale Black Sea with Jude Law, Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly with Ray Liotta, Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy and James Gandolfini and Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines with Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes.

Michael Fassbender (Silas) and Ben Mendelsohn (Payne): "At that stage, he is starting to make a move towards taking the boy."

Tribeca: Go Slow West, Where The Skies Are Blue

19 April 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Tribeca Film Festival 2015 kicked off this week and we'll be bringing you our screening adventures. Here's Jason on Michael Fassbender's new Western.

Jay Canvendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) sees the world through rose-colored lenses - that is to say, the name of his on-the-lam paramour is Rose and he sees the world colored by his love for her. In flashbacks we come to sense that Rose's feelings towards Jay are somewhat different, but that's not slowing him down. He will find her and everything will be fine, for their love is a grand and true thing.

Slow West ekes its enviable tension out of dropping Jay's love-dumb perspective down into the Movie Wild West we all know only too well - or think we do, until this movie gets to toying with it - with its brutes and indifference to beauty; what bubbles up is a bizarre, Coen-esque journey of »

Kodi Smit-McPhee discusses being cast as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse

19 April 2015 4:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’s only 18 years old but he’s already established himself as one of the finest young actors working in Hollywood today having impressed in The Road, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and more recently Slow West, ironically alongside his fellow mutant Michael Fassbender.

In February director Bryan Singer revealed via his Instagram account that Smit-McPhee was cast in X-Men: Apocalypse as a young Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler, who was previously played by Scottish actor Alan Cumming in X-Men 2. In a recent interview with SuperHeroHype, Kodi Smit-McPhee revealed his thoughts on the audition process and the pressure to please comic-book purists.

When asked about the daunting task of taking over from Alan Cumming and playing a younger version, Smit-McPhee replied, “Because it is the Marvel Universe and X-Men and there are a lot of people expecting a lot of things, I did a huge amount »

Tff 2015: Slow West Review

18 April 2015 11:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: John Maclean

Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Mendelsohn, Rory McCann, Caren Pistorius

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 84 minutes

Synopsis: A young Scottish aristocrat bewitched by love heads on a journey across the American Frontier to find her accompanied by a mysterious and inscrutable frontiersman and pursued by a band of iniquitous opportunists

In his feature debut, musician and filmmaker John Maclean has created a perspective of the American frontier that is as refreshingly entertaining as the violent degenerates who inhabit this new, vibrant and majestic landscape. With blurring convention subversions and inversions, a slow but fast tempo, and unexpected flashes of absurdity and violence, it’s a fantastical world meticulously designed to surprise you when you least expect whilst simultaneously reminding you of its unforgiving desolation and desperation.

Even if you’re not a fan of Westerns, you’ll be a fan of this one.

Watch The Stylish New Trailer For Slow West

18 April 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We may be witnessing a renaissance for the old fashioned western, with The Salvation proving there's still life in the genre yet. The upcoming Slow West should keep the fire burning, with the first trailer showing a lot of promise. Now, a new trailer has arrived that really hammers home why this dark comedy should be on your radar. It really feels like a different, more modern approach to the genre, while still retaining that spark that makes the western so beloved. Released: 15th May (U.S.)/ 26th June (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: A bounty hunter (Michael Fassbender) keeps his true motive a secret from the naive Scottish teenager (Kodi Smit-McPhee) he’s offered to serve as bodyguard and guide while the youth searches for his beloved in 1800s Colorado. »
