Bryan Singer delivered a new image from X-Men: Days of Future Past earlier this week featuring Hugh Jackman's Wolverine alongside Nicholas Hoult's Beast, and now director James Mangold has taken to Twitter himself to remind us that Jackman has another solo outing arriving prior to next year's mutant ensemble by releasing four new behind-the-scenes images from July's The Wolverine....
"Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality."
The Wolverine is set for release on July 26th, »

If you’re anything like me, you can’t wait for Vin Diesel to return to the big screen in not one but two of the year’s most promising blockbuster sequels. First up will of course be Fast and Furious 6, which hits our screens this Friday (and next Friday, if you’re in the Us). And then all eyes will be on September, for the return of Riddick.
Diesel shared with us a brilliant first teaser trailer back in March, giving us a thirty-second glimpse at his return to the infamous character. And now Universal have released the film’s first full-length trailer, via Machinima, which is set to be attached to Fast and Furious 6 next weekend, along with an awesome new poster.

Director James Mangold just tweeted a new picture from the set of The Wolverine, his upcoming X-Men spinoff-sequel which promises to reboot the Wolverine mini-franchise with a long-awaited dose of samurai. (In industry nomenclature, this is known as a “samurai-quel.”) The image shows Wolverine star Hugh Jackman in a sharp-things duel with Hiroyuki Sanada, better known as “The Cool Guy From The Last Samurai.” Check it out:
The main thing to notice in this picture is Hugh Jackman’s torso, and the muscles located thereupon. Some of those muscles haven’t even been discovered by science yet. This movie will »

At one point the cast included Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio del Toro and Gael Garcia Bernal, but it's taken quite a long time for Martin Scorsese to get Silence off the ground and people move on while other projects stall. Silence, however, is finally coming together. With the production eying a 2014 start, Scorsese has set Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Social Network) and Ken Watanabe (Inception, The Last Samurai) to star in the film based on Shusaku Endo's novel adapted for the screen by Jay Cocks and Variety's news item reporting it will be a Japaense-language film. Issei Ogata (Yi Yi) also stars. The story is set in the 17th century as two Jesuit priests face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and to spread the gospel of Christianity. Garfield will star as Father Rodrigues, a Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan »

"Spider-Man" star and "Social Network" dreamboat Andrew Garfield will break the two-decade long silence on Martin Scorsese's "Silence," which goes to the Cannes buyers' market this May. Though not Portuguese himself, Garfield has been cast to play Father Rodrigues, a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan to tout the gospel of Christianity. Adapted from Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel, the film was once rumored to star Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio del Toro and Gael Garcia Bernal, and it's unknown whether they remain attached to the project or not. Japanese star Ken Watanabe ("The Last Samurai") will co-star with Garfield. "Silence" has been on pause for years but has been a dream project of Scorsese's since he read the novel 25 years ago, according to an interview with the director in Variety. Scorsese, currently wrapping up "The Wolf of Wall Street" starring Leonardo DiCaprio (allegedly the "Great Gatsby" star's last role for awhile), is still location. »

Good news for Scorsese fans, as his next project, Silence, has not only found financing for a June 2014 start, but has also landed a leading man in The Amazing Spider-man's Andrew Garfield, and a co-star with The Last Samurai's Ken Watanabe. Based on the novel by Shusaku Endo, the film will be a Japanese-language pic, and follow in the tradition of Scorsese's more personal work, like Kundun and The Last Temptation Of Christ. "Garfield will star as Father »

Andrew Garfield will star in Martin Scorsese's Silence adapted from the book by Japanese novelist Shusaku Undo, report sources. After twenty years of struggling to get the project made, the film's landed financing and also a big name, getting a green light for production to start in June, 2014. Also starring is The Last Samurai and Inception's very talented Ken Watanabe. In Silence, Garfield will play 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit Father Rodrigues who travels to Japan with another priest, amid rumors that his mentor has abandoned the Church.

Last week we got our first look at Will Yun Lee's (Total Recall) Silver Samurai in action against Hugh Jackman's Logan in The Wolverine thanks to the arrival of the CinemaCon trailer for the upcoming X-Men solo sequel, and now director James Mangold has tweeted a new theatrical poster for the movie which adopts the same style as the first teaser poster and focuses on the Japanese antagonist. Judging by the sheer size of the Silver Samurai, it's surprising this isn't the IMAX poster...

It's certainly an exciting time for comic book movie fans at the moment, what with the recent Man of Steel trailer, today's Thor: The Dark World trailer and the impending release of Iron Man 3 (which we'll be reviewing in just a few short hours), and now 20th Century Fox has got in on the act with a new international trailer for The Wolverine, which sees Hugh Jackman heading to Japan for his sixth appearance as the X-Men's adamantium-clawed mutant Logan. Sadly, there's only a few snippets of footage in this latest preview, but seeing as it took an eternity for the official trailer to land, it could be a while before we get to see any more...

Just after entering negotiations to star in Focus, a romantic heist thriller from John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (now without Kristen Stewart), the duo behind Crazy Stupid Love, superstar Will Smith is also looking at two more projects for his future slate. Deadline has word that Smith is currently reviving a project he's been trying to develop for years called American Can in which he would star for The Last Samurai director Ed Zwick. In addition Smith is also considering The Accountant, another project he once flirted with in the past when it was a Warner Bros. production with Mel Gibson attached to direct. American Can has been in the works for awhile with Smith producing and once looking to Denzel Washington to star in the drama.

Just two days after signing on to topline Focus, Will Smith seems intent on keeping himself busy, with two films possibly lined up after the grifter pic. The action star is reportedly considering two projects he’s had on his radar for quite a while, the first of which is the drama American Can, where he’d be taking the role of a “reluctant hero” during the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina for director Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai). On top of that, there is the possibility that Smith would also star in the thriller The Accountant. Hit the jump for more. From Deadline comes news that Sony Pictures, in partnership with Overbrook Entertainment, is looking to breathe life into American Can. Smith would be taking the lead role of John Keller, a Gulf War veteran who returns home to his state of Louisiana, only to have his hometown struck by »

Tom Cruise does a lost more in his movies than just flash his million-dollar smile and have nervous breakdowns in locker rooms with Cuba Gooding Jr., you know. Over the course of his nearly 40 years in movies, Cruise has taken on a wide variety of formidable enemies, whether they be made of flesh and blood or something else. Like any true movie hero, the man just can't get away from conflict.
In honor of the release of "Oblivion," which has Cruise taking on yet another new opponent, we've created an infographic that illustrates just how much fightin' Tom has done over the years — and who (or what) has been on the receiving end of his furious wrath.

Horror comedies such as Pee Mak Phrakanong could be hot exports for Thailand's rapidly improving film industry
The flood of Chinese domestic blockbusters since the turn of the year is the strongest hint yet that the country is capable of being a Hollywood for Asia, and setting the cinema agenda for the region. But it's not the sole player around. At the end of March Thai audiences flocked to see horror comedy Pee Mak Phrakanong – based on the Mae Nak folktale about a man who returns from war and unwittingly settles back in with the ghost of his wife, who has died in childbirth. It had the second biggest opening (21.2m baht/£478,000) ever for a Thai film, and with over 300m baht to date, it is closing on the all-time box-office record (550m baht) held by 2001's war epic The Legend of Suriyothai.
Thai audiences seem to love their history: »
