Film Review: Wolves

13 November 2014 8:35 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The new movie Wolves is the directorial debut of screenwriter David Hayter. He wrote the screenplay for the first X-Men movie and was one of the credited writers on X-2: X-Men United and Watchmen. That this is his first feature directing effort definitely shows, but I'll get to that later.

Lucas Till stars as Cayden Richards, a popular high school jock who is just a little off. One night his adoptive parents are killed, and he believes he is responsible, having just come to the realization that he is a werewolf. He goes on the run, and in a bar, he meets Wild Joe. Joe, a fellow lycanthrope, points him in the direction of the small town of Lupine Ridge, where he can find out more about himself and his birth family's history.

Running things in the town with an iron fist, or paw in this case, is Jason Momoa. »

Blu-ray Review – X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014)

10 November 2014 5:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2014.

Directed by Bryan Singer.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Evan Peters, Booboo Stewart, Omar Sy, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Jonigkeit, Josh Helman and Peter Dinklage.

Synopsis:

The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.

“Please. We need you to hope again…”

Quite an apt statement lifted from Bryan Singer’s return to the comic-book realm that feels much more personal than just that of a desperate future Professor X (the ever miraculous Patrick Stewart) as he begs, pleads his past self (James McAvoy) through a inter-dimensional/time-loop to get back on a horse called Cerebro. Indeed, it feels like it’s Singer doing the pleading, »

In Defence Of... Brett Ratner's much-maligned X-Men: The Last Stand

10 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When news broke that Bryan Singer would be returning to the fold for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, much to the delight of mutant fan-peoples, the director sweetened the deal even further with a promise. "There will be some fixing," he said, hinting that his third X-flick (after X-Men and X2) would address perceived problems with X-Men: The Last Stand, aka the threequel Singer dumped in favour of Superman Returns.

Here's the thing: X-Men: The Last Stand didn't need fixing. In a world where movie threequels often topple promising trilogies, it stands out as a fun, action-packed, stakes-raising gambit that features some of the trilogy's boldest set pieces and more than a few gob-smacking twists. Picking up months after X2's downbeat, watery climax, we find the X-Men mourning the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) even as Worthington Labs announce they've found a mutant cure. Needless to say this divides the mutants, »

The Callow Way – Not Another Superhero Movie

9 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at the superhero movie genre’s dominance of the mainstream, and its impact on adult cinema…

The news that financing on the the film Idol’s Eye, slated to star Robert De Niro and Robert Pattinson, had been pulled, just as it was about to go into production surprised me. If a film starring an double Oscar winner like De Niro and a young star like Pattinson can’t attract investors, what films can? Anyone that has an interest in film can’t have helped but notice that Marvel Studios – which only started making films on its own in 2008 – revealed their “phase three” for the next few years, quickly following the announcement from DC comics If these young upstarts can tell us what films they’re going to be making for the foreseeable future, how can a film like Idol’s Eye not secure the money it needs to get made? »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Everything we know about X-Men: Apocalypse

5 November 2014 6:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From shoot dates to its villain, through to who's returning and more, here's what we know so far about Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse.

Spoilers: There's nothing heavy in here, but inevitably light spoilers, based on what we know from the comics, and a released synopsis.

X-Men: Apocalypse is now most certainly set and ready to take the box office by storm in summer 2016, with Bryan Singer back on board to direct the film that he first announced on his very own Twitter page. And as the follow-up to the most successful X-Men movie of all time, this past summer’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the new upcoming X-gene adventure is sure to be the most anticipated cinematic event in the saga yet.

So what do we know about the film? Glad you asked. Here's everything we've gleaned so far...

This new 'Nightcrawler' film gets the comics all wrong

4 November 2014 11:30 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's kind of fun to compare the X-Men film franchise to its original source material. Remarkably enough, in just 14 years, the movie universe has managed to become as convoluted and confusing as 50 years of comic books—even if the two are quite different, story-wise. The big, important stuff is in place—kind of like the way a stick figure looks like a person as long as you don't forget where limbs are supposed to go. Everything else is played pretty fast and loose. And that's fine! Adaptations shouldn't be slavish recreations. But boy, did they mess up this Nightcrawler movie. »

Extended Trailer for SyFy's 12 Monkeys Series

30 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The SyFy Channel has released an extended trailer for their great looking new series, 12 Monkeys, which is based on director Terry Gilliam's classic sci-fi time travel film. The show stars Aaron Standford (X2: X-Men United) as Cole, who was previously played by Bruce Willis.

The story follows the character as he travels from 2043 to the present day so that he can locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will all but annihilate the human race. While on his mission he teams up with Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) as well as a female mental patient named Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire), which is a character loosely based on the character played by Brad Pitt. Here's a more detailed synopsis:

12 Monkeys follows the journey of a time traveler, Cole, from the post-apocalyptic future. Using a dangerous and untested method of time travel, Cole arrives in the present day »

New 12 Monkeys TV Series Trailer Tells Us We’re All Already Dead

30 October 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

SyFy has released a new trailer for their upcoming TV series adaptation of 12 Monkeys.  The story follows a time traveler (Aaron Stanford of X2 fame) from a post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day with a mission to destroy the source of a deadly plague that will one day annihilate the human race.  While the show will lack the distinct style of Terry Gilliam's 1995 film, it still looks like an interesting time-travel film, and certainly more in the serious mold of SyFy's better series.  This isn't a story that can only be told one way, and I'm curious to see what the TV series will do with it. Hit the jump to check out the 12 Monkeys TV series trailer.  The show premieres at 9pm on January 16, 2015, and also stars Amanda Schull, Kirk AcevedoBarbara Sukowa, Noah Bean, Tom Noonan, Emily Hampshire, and Zeljko Ivanek.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Interview with Shawn Ashmore

14 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost 15 years ago, X-Men helped bring the superhero genre to life with a blockbuster adventure that showed comic book characters could bring in big crowds at the box office. After hit sequels X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, 20th Century Fox returned to the past with 2011's X-Men: First Class, which took the action back to the 1960s. While many thought the original trilogy characters' time was over, those many were quite wrong, with both the past and present coming together in the summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, now available on Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD.

I recently had the chance to speak with one of the original trilogy cast members Shawn Ashmore, who returns as Bobby "Iceman" Drake in director Bryan Singer's hit superhero adventure, which took in nearly $750 million worldwide during its theatrical run this summer.

10 Predictions For The X-Men Film Universe

8 October 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Everybody and their mums is clamouring for a shared cinematic universe these days. They’re like the new epic trilogies. Just this week there have been reports that the Star Trek movies might spill over from the main series into a bunch of spin-offs, Sony are apparently bidding on a similar set up for a smattering of Robin Hood films (who owns the rights to Robin Hood, anyway? Were they stolen from the poor and given to the rich?), and Disney are making good on their Star Wars investment not only be producing a new trio of films but also a bunch of side-stories and TV shows that will make up a new Expanded Universe. Thanks to the unprecedented success Marvel have had with translating their epic comic book continuity to the big screen, every studio wants a slice of that same lucrative pie.

Marvel At Bryan Singer’s Dark Phoenix Concept Art For X-Men: The Last Stand

3 October 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s a firmly held belief amongst fans that if Bryan Singer had remained attached to X-Men: The Last Stand, the finished film would’ve remained inline with the first two instalments (i.e. not derivative nonsense.) However, Singer chose to bow out of the third part in favour of Superman Returns, and handed over the reins to Brett Ratner. If you’re not a fan of Ratner’s attempt, Singer still waged some influence over the events of the flick as he did rewrite the franchise’s entire history in Days Of Future Past. But, would he have still done that if his original vision for The Last Stand had remained intact?

Thanks to Comic Book Movie (via Screen Crush), we can now get a look at what Singer had intended for his version – eight years after its release. The main focus of the concept art that’s made »

Magneto As An Anti-Hero and More As Kinberg Discusses 'X-Men' Plans

29 September 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

X-Men: Days of Future Past did a lot to spin Fox's X-franchise on its head. While being a sequel to X-Men: First Class, and sharing a cast with all of the previous films, it essentially rebooted the series. In a rather ingenious way, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer, and their writing staff were able to give the series a fresh new start without having to press a Batman Begins-style "Reset Button." It's not the first time this has happened, as 2009's Star Trek also proved that you can use certain, accepted science fiction conventions to start things over without having to say that everything that came before it is now meaningless. 

Kinberg sat down with Yahoo to discuss some of the ripples that will be felt all throughout the X-universe after the events of Days of Future Past. What stays? What goes? What can we expect? With X-Men: Apocalypse looming, »

X-Men: Apocalypse Will Complete First Class Trilogy, Says Simon Kinberg

29 September 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though X-Men: Days of Future Past was absolutely massive, bringing together the older cast of the earlier trilogy with the new actors of prequel First Class, word has it that X-Men: Apocalypse will go even bigger. And though production on the franchise entry isn’t getting underway until next spring, Days of Future Past scribe Simon Kinberg was recently more than happy to shed some light on what Apocalypse will look like and how it is being approached in relation to the previous films.

Speaking with Yahoo! Movies UK, Kinberg, who is currently developing the script for Apocalypse with returning director Bryan Singer and X2 screenwriters Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, discussed the scope and focus of the upcoming blockbuster:

“The thrust of Apocalypse is really to complete the trilogy we began with First Class – to complete the stories of young Raven, young Hank, younger Charles and Erik. And complete »

Black Widow Movie Almost Happened Before Iron Man

29 September 2014 2:24 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Now that Scarlett Johansson has played the Black Widow in several Marvel films, many fans are demanding that the studio make a solo "Black Widow" movie. And while it's still unclear whether that will ever happen, it turns out that it came really close in 2004. After coming off the success of "X-Men" and "X2," writer David Hayter was approached by Lionsgate (which owned the rights) about writing a "Black Widow" script and make it his directorial debut. Hayter agreed and created a faithful adaptation of the spy's origin story. The reason why Lionsgate was pushing to get this made was because lots of other female-led action films were performing well, including "Resident Evil," "Lara Croft: Tom Raider" and "Kill Bill." There were also a few failures like "Ultraviolet" and "BloodRayne," but one specific movie caused the death of the "Black Widow" film. That movie is Charlize Theron's "Aeon Flux, »
