Jennifer Lawrence speaks briefly about X-Men: Apocalypse

20 November 2014 2:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Jennifer Lawrence doing the promotional rounds for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, it’s inevitable that the actress will be fielding questions about her upcoming role in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during a chat with IGN the actress has briefly spoken about where we’ll find her character Mystique in the mutant superhero sequel:

“She’s very complex. She’s a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to the opposite race. I don’t really know where she’s gonna go. I’ve had a few conversations about where we’ll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is being directed by Bryan Singer, with Lawrence set to be joined by X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine). Meanwhile Chloe Moretz »

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

20 November 2014 7:14 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jake Quickenden lolling seductively in the surf, Nadia Forde beaming in a red bikini, and poor Edwina Currie kissing a koala called Rogue before he urinated all over her - these are just some of the cheesiest pre-jungle photoshoots.

Unbelievably, cheesier and even more staged snapshots of former I'm a Celebrity contestants over the years exist, and we've found them.

Let's celebrate with 13 of the silliest and seriously staged shoots from before and after the jungle below:

1. Edwina Currie

Everyone knows the old showbiz adage - never work with children or animals. But that didn't hinder former politician Edwina Currie - confirmed for her jungle debut tonight - who happily puckered up to a koala aptly named Rogue as he urinated all over her top. Currie took part in the shoot at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Queensland yesterday (November 19).

X-men: Apocalypse - Actors Up for Young Jean Grey and Cyclops

19 November 2014 8:07 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is going introduce fans to a younger version of Jean Grey and Cyclops. The characters were previously portrayed by Famke Janssen and James Marsden. It wouldn’t make sense for them to reprise their roles, though, because the story for the upcoming sequel is set in the 1980s.

According to The Wrap the studio, is looking at casting either Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Elle Fanning (Super 8) or Hailee Steinfeld (Ender’s Game) as a young Jean Grey. As for the part of Cyclops, they are looking at Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society), and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar). The news comes from multiple sources close to the production at 20th Century Fox.

An insider confirmed that both Moretz and Fanning have met with Singer recently, but there are other up-and-coming actresses still in the mix. No official test offers have been made yet, but »

HIV is increasing in young gay men. Will Hollyoaks help raise the alert? | Patrick Strudwick

18 November 2014 11:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Nigel Farage blames migrants, but rising HIV infection rates are a homegrown problem we need to tackle ourselves

More than 30 years since Aids emerged, Britain is to have its first gay soap opera character with HIV. In January, Channel 4’s Hollyoaks, which next year celebrates its 20th anniversary and which is aimed at young people, will launch a major, long-running storyline following Ste Hay (played by 28-year-old Kieron Richardson) as he comes to terms with the diagnosis. Viewers will witness Ste receiving the results and coping with the social, medical and psychological aftermath.

Although soaps have tackled the issue before – most notably EastEnders’ Mark Fowler, played by Todd Carty, during the nadir of the Aids crisis, and Emmerdale’s Val Pollard (Charlie Hardwick) this year – neither character was gay. This is perhaps surprising, given that around half of new infections each year occur from sex between men, with a »

Actors Up For Young Cyclops & Jean Grey In ‘X-Men’

18 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With X-men: Apocalypse getting ready for a 2016 release, casting rumours have been announced for the roles of Jean Grey and Cyclops. The two characters have obviously been included in the original trilogy, as well as cameos in this year’s X-men: Days Of Future Past, with Cyclops also making an appearance in X-men Origins: Wolverine and Jean Grey popping up in The Wolverine. With James Marsden and Famke Janssen having played the roles originally, they are too old for the current X-Men timeline which follows a younger Professor X and Magneto.

Casting suggestions for Jean Grey, so far, include Elle Fanning, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Hailee Steinfeld, while the casting for Cyclops seems to be between Timothee Chalamet, Ben Hardy, and Charlie Rowe. If it does transpire that Professor X is gradually recruiting his household name team of mutants, then perhaps we’ll see other young versions of characters. It »

New X-Men: Apocalypse casting rumours

18 November 2014 10:55 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld and Peter Beale from EastEnders are all on the X-Men: Apocalypse shortlist, it seems

Bryan Singer is homing in on new additions to the X-Men cast for his upcoming movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. The film will centre on the X-Men: First Class cast (and pick things up after X-Men: Days Of Future Past), but it'll also be introducing younger versions of characters we've already seen in previous X-Men adventures. As such, the search is on for acting talent to play the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

So who's on the short list?

For Jean Grey, The Wrap is reporting that Elle Fanning (last seen in Maleficent), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) are on the shortlist. Meanwhile, the younger Cyclops could be taking the form of Ben Hardy (Peter Beale in EastEnders, no less), Charlie Rowe (Walking With Dinosaurs) and »

Elle Fanning & More Up for Jean Grey Role in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

18 November 2014 5:25 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's time for the X-Men: Apocalypse cast to start locking down new talent for some new roles who will join returning cast members like Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and hopefully (presumably) Hugh Jackman. We've heard some new mutants would enter the mix, and that they would likely be young versions of the X-Men we had already seen in the original X-Men franchise. Now that has been confirmed as The Wrap reports Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld are all on the shortlist to play the telekinetic mutant Jean Grey, mentored by Professor X. But there's even more! In addition, Bryan Singer is also on the hunt for someone to play a young Cyclops, the optic blasting mutant who ends up falling in love with Jean Grey. The names in consideration for that role are a little lesser known than those in the running for Jean »
