"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. »
The TV vet has joined the Season 3 cast of CBS’ sci-fi drama, EW.com reports.
La Salle will play Hektor Martin, a cutthroat CEO of the energy company run by Barbie’s (Mike Vogel) father. He previously directed a Season 2 episode, “The Fall,” and will get behind the camera again for Season 3’s ninth episode.

In an era when soap production budgets have been drastically cut, showrunners are facing even tougher choices when it comes time to choose which episodes they’ll submit to win the Daytime Emmy for drama series.
But this year’s quartet of contenders say the decision ultimately comes down to an age-old strategy — aim for the heart.
There was a time when daytime serial producers had a lot more money to spend and the flashiest (read: priciest) episodes would typically be slamdunk Emmy submissions. Nowadays, showrunners are singling out the episodes that deliver emotional wallops.
“When the Emmys come around it takes a while to reflect back on the year before,” says “General Hospital” exec producer Frank Valentini. “We do quite a few episodes a year so we have to be very self-actualizing.”
“Gh” went with the first episode from its annual Nurses Ball (which had numerous entanglements) and also »

“There is an interesting parallel,” says Sweeney, who exited the NBC sudser in October. “Sami would think something was never going to work out and just as she was walking away she’d get that opportunity. This feels the same. If I were only to get nominated once, I’m really glad it’s happening this year.”
Sweeney won a special fan award for playing America’s favorite villain at the 2002 Daytime Emmys, but this year is different because she’s being acknowledged by her peers.
The actress will fly in from Vancouver where she’s wrapping up her dual gigs as executive producer and lead in the Hallmark Channel film “Radio Hype.” She’s just in time to attend not only the awards broadcast, »

There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right? Regardless, not only did Roland Emmerich announce Pullman’s return, but he also revealed that Judd Hirsch will be back as well. Hirsch played David’s (Jeff Goldblum) father Julius Levinson in the original. So now the list of returning cast members includes Pullman, Hirsch, Goldblum, Brent Spiner as Dr. Brackish Okun, the kooky scientist at Area 51, and Vivica A. Fox as Captain Steven Hiller’s (Will Smith) wife, Jasmine Dubrow. As for the newcomers, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth as President Whitmore’s son-in-law, Jessie Usher as Steven Hiller’s son (presumably an older Dylan Dubrow), Travis Tope as a character named Charlie, and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Joey King in unknown roles. »

She first rose to fame as Miss Teen USA before becoming a favorite of soap opera fans as Stephanie Johnson on Days of our Lives and more recently, as Mali Tate on the MTV series Teen Wolf. Now, however, Shelley Hennig is taking on the horror genre once again (after Ouija) with a role in Unfriended.
In the film, Hennig plays Blaire, one of several high school friends who chat with one another over Skype. However, they soon find that there is an unwanted guest in their chat room that won’t go away and is intent on turning their enjoyable conversation into a living nightmare.
During the recent La press day for Unfriended, I had the chance to sit down with Hennig for an exclusive interview. She talked about how the filmmakers managed to shoot the movie in one long take, the challenges of maintaining such strong emotions throughout production, »

Reboots, videogame adaptations, and a few long awaited sequels are all due for release next year

"Shut the f—k up!" That was pretty much the phrase of the evening as the ladies of Beverly Hills had it out about some of the biggest, most dramatic moments of the season. We actually kept getting a little confused about what was going on, due to all the bleeps and the fact that every conversation eventually just devolved into Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville, and Lisa Rinna all just shouting the F-word at anyone and everyone. First things first, Andy Cohen asked Eileen Davidson what it's like to be on TV without a script, which eventually turned into discussing Brandi's infamous wine-throwing after Eileen refused to reenact a Days of Our Lives scene with her. Brandi started with the »

Hey, remember the Als Ice Bucket Challenge? It was the philanthropic craze that likely took over your Facebook feed for the better part of last Summer, and loads of celebrities were getting in on it. Well, a new year brings a new social media trend, and this time, it involves Twizzlers. The #TwizzlerChallenge started in March during Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars, which works with the organization New York Collaborates For Autism; during the event, Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba and Today's Willie Geist shared a Lady and the Tramp-style kiss with a Twizzler, and other celebs soon followed suit. The rules are similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge in that you share a video of yourself via social media and nominate friends (or frenemies), who can then choose to either do the stunt or donate to NYC4A, which funds and creates schools, »
X-Men: Days of Future Past already runs at a hefty 131 minutes, and that runtime was trimmed down from an earlier cut that featured an entire subplot. When we spoke to producer and writer Simon Kinberg about the film last April, he noted that about 10 minutes were cut out, and that this subplot heavily featured Rogue (Anna Paquin), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), and Magneto (Ian McKellen). When the Blu-ray of Days of Future Past was released on Blu-ray, Adam interviewed Kinberg, who confirmed that the “Rogue Cut” was on the way because there wasn’t enough time to do it with the release window for the theatrical cut. Empire has now learned that the BBFC (the British equivalent of the MPAA) “has rated the extended edit as a 12 and lists the running time as 142 minutes and 37,” which is 11 minutes and 11 seconds longer than the theatrical version.

The film is titled A Deadly Adoption, and is a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the Lifetime movie genre set to debut on Lifetime this summer. THR exclusively reported that the film will tell the story of a successful couple who allow a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) to move into their home in the hopes of adopting her unborn child. It’s a drama, but when you cast two of the funniest people on the planet, you know it’s bound to be an unintentional comedy of the highest proportions.
