Production is finally about to get underway on Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie, with Edge Of Tomorrow and Bourne Identity’s Doug Liman settling into the warm spot of Rupert Wyatt’s vacant director’s chair. We already know that Gambit will be acting independently of the main X-Men series, and that rather than an epic fight between friends, rivals and external forces, it will be a heist movie.
If there’s one thing the X-Men movies have never been shy about, it’s cramming in the mutants as either cameos or anthropomorphic MacGuffins. It’s safe to assume then that Gambit will be no different, bringing in some fan pleasing cameos and possibly even rehabilitating some of the characters that were so poorly served by X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine now that the events of those two films have been completely expunged from »

The Tracking Board are reporting that the untitled movie will focus on Alexey Pajitnov, the Russian creator of Tetris, who developed the game alongside Dmitry Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov for a Soviet-funded company. Because of his Soviet connections, Pajitnov didn’t recieve royalities on the game until 1996, despite it being sold with every Game Boy.
Ratner will possibly direct the movie and will produce it with partner Jeremy Packner with their RatPac company. Their previous titles include Horrible Bosses 2, The Arrested Development Movie and The Revenant. The movie is being described in the same vein as The Social Network, which told the story of Mark Zuckerberg’s creation of Facebook.

The gang confronted Lash in this week’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Chaos Theory, with mixed results…
This review contains spoilers.
3.7 Chaos Theory
“Chaos Theory,” the actual scientific thing, is the posh term for the butterfly effect. No, not the Ashton Kutcher movie. Chaos Theory is the idea that one tiny thing in the past could have huge ramifications in the future. It’s a bit more complicated than that, granted, but my B in Gcse science can only take this introduction so far.
In the context of this episode, the title Chaos Theory most likely refers to the relationship between the flashbacks and the main story. Blair Underwood’s loveable psychiatrist character Andrew Garner opened a book six months ago after returning from holiday. Today, as a result, he’s a monstrous beast with a serious bloodlust towards certain Inhumans. Oops!
One thing that isn’t chaotic is this week's script, »
Earlier this week, Ryan Reynolds shared a photo on his Twitter page that showed the actor in his full Deadpool costume, along with a group of kids dressed up as X-Men mutants. Today, the Deadpool star took to social media once again to share, "the behind the scenes video of the making of a photo you may or may not have seen." While the kids all seemed to be having a good time in the photo, they aren't quite as enthusiastic in this video, with some even poking fun at the actor's past superhero endeavors.
The three-minute video shows the Merc With the Mouth asking these "mutants" what their super powers are, as a young Mystique adds, "Aren't you Green Lantern?" I won't spoil his response, but it's certainly something one would expect Deadpool to say. The YouTube description reveals this is a "Deadpool documentary," so perhaps this video is »
The first two X-Men movies were superb, but the franchise appeared to be done for after awful releases like X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Thankfully, things started looking up with The Wolverine and turned a major corner with X-Men: Days of Future Past last year (which no doubt had something to do with Bryan Singer returning to the franchise).
However, all of those movies made some big mistakes. These were mostly down to how they handled certain characters, with the frequent cameos which were meant to make fans happy turning out to almost always be a disappointment.

That begs the question; which mutant heroes and villains should return somewhere down the line? With Fox expanding the X-Men franchise in a major way through TV shows and spinoffs, there are any number of places these familiar faces could show up, whether they’re »

During 20th Century Fox's Hall H presentation at 2015 Comic Con, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer engaged in a cryptic conversation with Hugh Jackman, who has appeared as Wolverine in every X-Men movie to date, but still hasn't been confirmed for an appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse. While the conversation certainly didn't confirm a Wolverine cameo, it did hint that one may be possible, and if a new report is to be believed, fans will see Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse. Journal de Montreal is reporting that the director is assembling his cast in Montreal early next year for reshoots, and that Hugh Jackman may be on hand.
This report hasn't been confirmed by 20th Century Fox, director Bryan Singer or Hugh Jackman, but it would seem fitting to bring the star aboard, to continue his streak of consecutive Wolverine appearances. The actor has confirmed numerous times that Wolverine 3, which is slated for »
In just a few short months, 20th Century Fox will release the long-awaited Deadpool, which star Ryan Reynolds had been trying to get off the ground for several years. The buzz swirling around this superhero movie is already quite high, after the first trailer debuted at San Diego Comic Con this summer. While it isn't known when we'll see the next footage from this comic book adaptation, Ryan Reynolds sent out a new photo on his verified Twitter account, showing the actor in his full Deadpool costume, trick-or-treating with a group of young X-Men mutants on Halloween. Here's what the actor had to say on his Twitter page yesterday.
"Dear Fox, stop changing the timelines. It's confusing the audience. #xmenassemble #happyhalloween."
London — Content Media and Defy Media, a leading producer and programmer of digital content, have inked a deal to finance “Higher Power,” a sci-fi movie from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who is best known for the “Transformer” and “G.I. Joe” franchises.
The movie tells the story of an ordinary guy who risks his life to save his daughter, and ends up with powers beyond his wildest imagination.
International distributors will get their first glimpse of “Higher Power” at next week’s American Film Market in Santa Monica, where Content’s film president, Jamie Carmichael, and its head of sales, Harry White, will debut the first footage. CAA co-represents U.S. distribution rights with Content.
The film is directed by Matthew Santoro, the visual effects artist for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “The Incredible Hulk” and “300,” from a script by Julia Fair (“Alien Raiders”). It stars Ron Eldard (“Sleepers, »

According to actor Andre Tricoteux, people will get a better sense of the true character in the film compared to his appearances in previous big-screen X-Men offerings.
Speaking to Tech Times, Tricoteux said: "I think you're going to get to see more of who Colossus is. Like I said, we kept him really traditional to the comic book. So yes, I think people will get a better sense of who he is.
"But I think there's still a lot more to be told about him. Colossus has been around in the comics since the '70s, so I mean, I »
Ever since the first Deadpool trailer debuted at Comic Con this summer, the anticipation has grown at an incredible rate for this superhero adventure, set to hit theaters February 12, 2016. Aside from the Merc With the Mouth, fans will also be introduced to colorful characters such as Ajax (Ed Skrein, Angel Dust (Gina Carano), Weasel (T.J. Miller) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). One of the most intriguing characters, though, is Colossus, with Andre Tricoteux replacing Daniel Cudmore, who portrayed him in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. During an interview with Tech Times, Andre Tricoteux revealed that this version of Colossus will be truer to the original comic books than the X-Men movies.
Ellen Page has said that she would "love" to do a spin-off Kitty Pryde movie from the X-Men franchise.
The 28-year-old, who won't reprise her role of the mutant with the ability to phase through objects in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, admitted that she doesn't know of the character's future.
When asked by a reporter at the Rome Film Festival about Pryde's future, Page said: "Sadly I have no information for you," adding: "Would I be utterly delighted to continue to play Kitty Pryde - yes."
After the suggestion of a solo movie, Page admitted: "I would love to."

After more than 15 years playing the beloved mutant Logan, Hugh Jackman is prepping for his final performance as the character in Wolverine 3, which is scheduled to start production in early 2016. 20th Century Fox has already set a March 3, 2017 release date for this superhero adventure, but there is very little we know about the story at this point. While promoting Pan, Hugh Jackman was asked about his favorite scene from all of the X-Men movies, and without hesitation, he had this to say to Digital Spy, which may surprise you.
"I still think, ultimately, my favorite one is the cameo in X-Men: First Class. To me, that just, in about 15 seconds, sums up the character."
If you don't recall the actor's blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene in X-Men: First Class, Logan is approached by Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) in a bar, while they are recruiting new mutants, where Logan tells them, »
Movie trailers are what get us to fork over our box office dollars, but sometimes we don't always get our money's worth.
In fact, the movie we're sold on is often underwhelming or disappointing -- failing to live up to the quality of the ad that hooked us in. (We're looking at you, "Phantom Menace.") As theaters fill with previews for this Fall's coming attractions, here are 11 previews that proved to be better than the movie.
Back when trailers hit the internet in thumbnail vid sizes, if you wanted to really the prequel's first teaser, you had to buy a ticket to see (cringe) "Meet Joe Black." Today, we'd take a blank-faced Brad Pitt eating peanut butter over Jar-Jar any day.

The first teaser trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse debuted at Sdcc 2015 this past summer. And while it leaked shortly thereafter, the footage has never been made public. If we're to believe the latest statements from director Bryan Singer, we won't get to see an official trailer until March, which is just two months before the movie makes it's way into theaters. This is close to what 20th Century Fox did for the Fantastic Four remake, releasing the first teaser very late in the game. According to the filmmaker, the trailer will actually show off some of the end credit sequence from X-Men: Apocalypse, which is an homage to the entire franchise up until now.
Bryan Singer was speaking at the San Pedro International Film Festival. And he revealed that X-Men: Apocalypse has the longest running time of any mutant adventure thus far. But there is a very good reason for that. »
Now that the car crash that was X-3, or X-Men: The Last Stand has been expunged from cinematic history (making it possibly the only example of a movie franchise deliberately redacting its own canon to get rid of the crappy bits), there’s a real chance that we could get ourselves a mutant movieverse worthy of the letter X.
That ‘we’, of course, means fans of the X-Men comic books. We’re a hardy breed, having adapted over decades of patient reading to put up with clones, twins, aliens, demons and more time travel shenanigans than anyone should have to deal with who isn’t being chased by a Terminator.
In terms of the films, not only have we endured the indignity of Brett Ratner’s coarse, inexpert pawing at some of the greatest comics characters of all time, but we’ve gritted our teeth through the first Wolverine movie and wondered, »

An ancient mutant will attack the 1980s in 2016's new X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Here's our look ahead...
If the double-bill disappointment of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine couldn’t kill the X-Men franchise, nothing can. Now that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past have got the series back on track, there’s no stopping Fox’s mutant movies.
However, there’s one upcoming X-film that promises a bigger scale, a more dastardly villain and the biggest collection of dodgy haircuts than any of the rest. That film would be X-Men: Apocalypse.
This one’s the next team-based instalment, and it will focus on the recast protagonists introduced in First Class, picking up after their adventure in Days Of Future Past. »
Hugh Jackman made waves on the Internet yesterday when he mentioned Tom Hardy as a possible replacement for indestructible mutant Logan after Hugh's done with the character following Wolverine 3. As everyone knows by now, Wolverine 3 will be the final time Hugh Jackman dons the claws for 20th Century Fox and their X-Men franchise. Fans have continuously speculated about who may be called in to assume the position after 2017. And some even believe Fox may have a contender waiting in the wings. Fan art maestro BossLogic has taken it upon himself to show the word exactly what Tom Hardy would look like suited up in the inevitable reboot. The results are pretty impressive.
A lot of fans believe that Hugh Jackman is irreplaceable as Wolverine. But that has never stopped Hollywood from rebooting one of its more popular characters. No one can escape the reboot machine, not even Han Solo, who »
While some fans may not be ready to admit it to themselves yet, Hugh Jackman will be delivering his last performance as the beloved mutant Logan in 20th Century Fox's Wolverine 3, which has been set for release on March 3, 2017. It has been rumored that Wolverine 3 will essentially close out the entire X-Men franchise, following Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. Still, even if this rumor is true, 20th Century Fox will surely continue the franchise in some fashion, leading many fans to wonder who may replace Hugh Jackman as Logan. While promoting his new movie Pan, in theaters October 9, Hugh Jackman offered his choice for who he'd like to take over as Wolverine, during an interview with MTV.
"I haven't really given it a lot of thought, but I've been asked that question a lot, and I always said, 'I don't want to make it »
