The Rubicon prequel arrived in my inbox couple of days ago and I watched it with with very low expectations. But, after watching the 12-minute episode, consider me a huge fan of the concept. The project is a prequel to the 2012 Archaia and Meteor Entertainment graphic novel written by retired Army Major Mark Long (The Silence of our Friends), Seal Team Six founding member Dan Capel and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Jack Reacher, Edge of Tomorrow). The project was first announced back in 2011 at NY Comic-Con as a transmedia project aiming for a feature length film and video game in addition to a graphic novel. Fast forward to 2014 and we have a pilot from director Christian Johnston that features Matt Bushell as the rough and ready CIA operative Mike and Ken Lally as his handler, Smash.

As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:
Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)
Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser. »
Have you ever dreamed about what it might be like to relive the same day over and over again in an endless search for the perfect 24 hour period of existence? Of course you haven't, for that is the plot of much-loved Bill Murray/Harold Ramis comedy classic Groundhog Day, and each and every possible hilarious scenario has already been played out for you via one of the sharpest and most intuitive scripts of all time.
Edge of Tomorrow, 20 minutes of which was screened for bloggers and film journalists at an event in London earlier this week, is like Groundhog Day with stringy aliens and Tom Cruise. Admittedly, there are a few other minuscule differences between Doug Liman's upcoming sci-fi piece and its forebear: Cruise is using his unusual predicament »

Days after Dean Winter was announced as co-lead of Breaking Bad czar Vince Gilligan's new CBS drama Battle Creek, the Wrap is reporting that Bryan Singer, of X-Men and The Usual Suspects fame, will direct the pilot episode. The show, which will also feature Kal Penn and Janet McTeer as well as a yet unannounced second lead, concerns two polar opposite detectives working out of a Michigan town. »

Announced last September , "Battle Creek," the upcoming AMC series from "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, has, according to Deadline , found a pilot helmer in Bryan Singer ( The Usual Suspects , X-Men ). A contemporary detective drama, "Battle Creek" is set for a full first season order. "House" creator David Shore will serve as showrunner, executive producing alongside Gilligan and Mark Johnson. Singer also directed Shore's "House" pilot. Set in Battle Creek, Michigan, the series pairs two detectives with wildly disparate personalities. That's somewhat familiar territory for Gilligan, who launched his television career as a writer, director and producer on "The X-Files." "Battle Creek" was initially »
Now it’s gettin’ good, right? This section of the list begins to get into the portion where “you’ve heard it before.” A number of the films below have been universally acclaimed for one reason or another, but the focus here is on the writing. Some are innovative, some are unexpected, and some completed changed the way films were written, creating a new style or sub-genre. After all, isn’t that what makes for good writing?

I don’t wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you’re standing in my way, one way or the other, you’re gettin’ outta my way.

Shawn Ashmore has opened up about returning to the role of Iceman for X-Men Days of Future Past.
X-Men Days of Future Past: The making of Bryan Singer's superhero epic
Ashmore has recently expressed his thoughts on combining the casts of both the original X-Men trilogy and First Class.
"It's amazing," he told Access Hollywood.
"The great thing about these movies is not only do you spend a fair amount of time together shooting the film 'cause you shoot for a long time on a big sort of studio, tent pole movie like this, but then you go off for a couple months, everybody does their own thing, you come back for sort of like the press tour."
The actor continued: "After The Last Stand »

Multi-talented, super-fit, sexy Aussie, Hugh Jackman has pretty much become synonymous with Wolverine, since being cast and owning that part in Bryan Singer’s first X-Men film, back in 2000. He has successfully proven his acting chops in many other genres such as dramas, musicals, and romantic period films. However, with his long-running role as X-Men’s mutant Logan/Wolverine, he has captivated comic-book fans worldwide and undoubtedly doubled his female audience, thanks to his “special genetic mutation,” which has clearly enhanced his physical capabilities both on and off screen.
When a group of us visited the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past last summer, we had the privilege of meeting and chatting with the gracious buff actor, who so kindly treated the entire production to special ordered Aussie sweets for their afternoon break. May I add, aside from being one of the nicest people ever, he is beyond hot, »

The new act in Liam Neeson’s career that began with 2008′s Taken has made it hard to remember that he was in stuff like Kinsey just a couple years before that. It turns out, Liam Neeson killing lots of people is exactly what the movie-going public needs this time of year, after a long winter and irritating award-season political sniping. Now Kevin Costner is getting in on the act, with 3 Days To Kill, from EuropaCorp, the company behind Taken and such other notable titles as the Transporter series. It remains to be seen whether Costner’s effort will meet with Neeson-like glorious success or falter like EuropaCorp’s John Travolta (From Paris With Love) and Zoe Saldana (Colombiana) vehicles. Until then, let’s consider 11 actors we’d like to see go the Neeson route: Gabriel Byrne An Irishman like Neeson, and one whose potential in the running around with guns and killing people sphere was only »

The director also said that there were similarities in the way he shot the upcoming 20th Century Fox sequel.
"[It ties back to The Usual Suspects] in two ways," Singer told IGN. "One structurally, and also in the way I've shot it.
"Because I shot the future elements that take place in the future first. And it was like with Usual Suspects, it was a movie that carried one actor through both the flashbacks and the present day, so it was like shooting a little movie first.
"The same thing here - we had the X-Men of the future, all of them, all the actors I had worked with from the past all came, »
Heavy breathing, hammering heart and outrageous enthusiasm in the form of tiny little squeals were just some of the things I experienced right after receiving a text from my editor last summer asking me If I was available and wanted to attend a set visit for Xmen. Umm, let’s not kid ourselves. Considering the film has an amazing all-star A-list cast and the prequel, First Class is pretty kick-ass, naturally it was a no-brainer. However, when I discovered Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy would be filming on set that day. I jumped on the chance like a cheetah on its prey.
Soon after that, this over-heated and grateful gal, flew out to Montreal on a very hot August day, to join a select group of equally curious and enthusiastic reporters. The morning after our arrival, we met our sweet Fox rep, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, to be driven »

Bryan Singer has been discussing what we can expect from X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and has rather excitingly compared it to The Usual Suspects. “[It resembles The Usual Suspects] in two ways,” says Singer. “One structurally, and also in the way I’ve shot it, because I shot the future elements that take place in the future first.” “Usual Suspects was this movie starring Kevin Spacey, Chazz Palminteri, Dan Hedaya, Giancarlo Esposito, and then they all left, and then a new group came - the suspects.” “The same thing here - we...

In terms of superhero team-up movies in 2014, not even "Guardians Of The Galaxy" (first trailer here) can touch "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" which has supersized the cast with faces new and old, from films past and present, to present more mutants than we have ever seen on the big screen. But with a story that will be jumping through time, how on Earth will Bryan Singer manage the narrative and allow it to be easy to follow, while juggling so many characters? Well, he's looked back on his breakout film "The Usual Suspects" for some inspiration on how to keep things in check. "[It resembles the 'Usual Suspects'] in two ways. One structurally, and also in the way I’ve shot it. Because I shot the future elements that take place in the future first," the director explained to IGN. "And it was like with 'Usual Suspects,' it was a movie that carried »

New X Men,Days Of Future Past director dished new future & past scene details. Recently, Collider chatted it up with "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" movie director, Bryan Singer (left), and at one point during their interview, he revealed some new details about some future and past scenes he shot during the first five days of production. And it turns out that he felt like he was shooting a different movie at times, and more. Bryan explained when asked about it: "You know, it takes me back to The Usual Suspects more than any other film ever has in the sense that that movie I shot an interrogation scene in the first five days and that was Kevin Spacey, Dan Hedaya, Chazz Palminteri, Giancarlo Esposito, and then Kevin stayed on and we did the Stephen Baldwin, Pete Postlethwaite, Gabriel Byrne movie. With this it’s very similar, in the beginning »
Interview Ryan Lambie 19 Feb 2014 - 17:00
We had to feel a little bit sorry for director Bryan Singer when we visited the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past last year. Not only did he have a gigantic summer film to create, but he also had a terrible cough ("Sorry, my allergies are going crazy," he told us), and he had load of jet-lagged writers gathering round to disrupt his day.
Yet despite his hectic schedule, Bryan Singer was kind enough to take about half an hour to answer our questions about his new X-Men film in a lively group interview. He also spoke about how Days Of Future Past harks back to the ensemble filmmaking of The Usual Suspects, and also his lifelong affection for Star Trek, »
If you haven.t seen either of the movies involved in this video and story, then you should know that there are plenty of spoilers to be found here. And, well, you probably deserve to have both of them spoiled. Keyser Soze! Here at Cinema Blend, we.ve seen some crazy fan theories roll crookedly across these metaphorical halls, linking the Pixar Universe together and positing a family of James Bonds. But indie filmmaker Tony Sebastian Ukpo is theorizing that two completely different films from 1995, Bryan Singer.s The Usual Suspects and David Fincher.s Se7en, are connected through each film.s villain. One is presented as a legendary criminal mastermind while the other is a methodical sadist inspired by society.s moral downgrading. Could they be the same person? So, this is an explanation that would take less than a minute to lay out, so having the video »
