10 Of The Best Movie Threequels Of All Time

28 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You can probably name a bunch of great sequels off the top of your head right now – but how many of those are threequels? By that point in a franchise, the concept can become stale and the characters tired. We all know that there are countless examples of bad threequels capping trilogies that were up to that point highly-regarded: The Godfather Part III, Terminator: Rise of the Machines, Spider-Man 3Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, X-Men: The Last Stand, the list goes on and on.

More News From The Web

-->

Not all movie threequels are so disappointing, however. Occasionally, a movie series’ third outing makes a great film in its own right. Star Trek Beyond – if we’re to think of 2009’s Star Trek as the beginning of a new series – is one such improbably solid second sequel to prove the curse of the threequel doesn’t extend to all franchises. »

Editorial: Fox meet Marvel

30 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fox’s treatment of Marvel properties is unacceptable.  There, I’ve established how I feel. Now, let’s run down why it’s so exciting that one day we may see them work with Marvel in a capacity similar to Sony. To put it bluntly, it feels like Fox is just in it for the money. I’m aware of how capitalism works, but the difference between someone who cares about what they are doing and someone rifling through your pockets is glaringly obvious. Many of you will disagree, but let’s take a peek back in time. We’ll begin with X-Men.

In 2000, a time before Sam Raimi’s first Spider-Man film, X-Men was a triumph.  Not many people cared about the fact that Hugh Jackman looked nothing like the comic book version of Wolverine. It was just cool to see a man with claws tearing through stuff. But, »

Vinnie Jones cast in Kingsman: The Golden Circle

30 June 2016 2:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor Vinnie Jones may have only returned to Twitter a few days ago, but he is already using the platform to deliver good news to his fans. A series of tweets posted on the account confirm that Jones is the latest cast addition to Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s hit spy comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Jones made the announcement with the following tweet…

Gotta be up early tomorrow filming The Kingsman 2 in london

Vinnie Jones (@VinnieJones65) June 26, 2016

After people said that they unsure of whether or not the account actually belonged to the actor, and not an impersonator, Jones was sure to clarify…

Ok a few disbelievers that this is me so im going to buy the sun newspaper and take a pic on set of kingsman 2

Jones and Vaughn last collaborated on Snatch, and, before that, Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, both of which Vaughn produced. 

Jones was also in X-men: The Last Stand, which was originally going to be directed by Vaughn, until Vaughn opted out because he didn't think he had enough time to make a proper X-Men film. Brett Ratner stepped in and proved that Vaughn was right, and there was not enough time to make a decent X-Men film. 

Jones will join Taron Egerton, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle Adds X-men: The Last Stand's Vinnie Jones

29 June 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Eighteen years after making his acting debut in the Matthew Vaughn-produced Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, former soccer player-turned-actor Vinnie Jones is reuniting with Vaughn for 20th Century Fox's highly anticipated Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  Jones revealed the news himself on his recently reactivated Twitter account by posting a series of videos and photos of him on-set and in costume. Details on his role are unavailable, but considering one of the photos he posted features him alongside Academy Award-winner Julianne Moore, who's playing the film's main villain, it's probably safe to assume his character will also be one of a nefarious nature.  In addition to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Jones worked with Vaughn again two years later on Snatch. He's also made a few treks into the comic book movie genre, first starring as Cain Marko a.k.a. the unstoppable Juggernaut in Brett Ratner's »

Bryan Singer Now In A Race To Get '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea'!

28 June 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Poor Bryan Singer. It seems like every time he goes off to work on one project, he misses the boat on one he really wanted to work on. Maybe he needs a better manager. Ten years ago, he really wanted to direct X-men: The Last Stand, but then a dream gig presented itself, and he went off to do Superman Returns. He told Fox that if they could just wait a bit, he'd definitely come back for that film. Sr ended up being a bit of a sore spot for his career and Fox, in the meantime, made X-men: The Last Stand without him- a move they, too, would regret.

Then there was a remake of Logan's Run that Singer had been talking about for years upon years. Somehow or other, that movie is getting made...without him. 

This brings us to 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. He's been talking up »

X-Men: where now after X-Men: Apocalypse?

With X-Men: Apocalypse settling for just over $500m at the global box office, in what direction should the series head next? A few thoughts.

The X-Men franchise has never been one to set the box office alight in the way that, say, The Avengers does, with 2014’s Days Of Future Past’s box office topping out at $748 million world wide. Granted, X-Men kickstarted the current cinematic superhero revolution to much acclaim but after the initial two entries in the franchise, public and critical reception began to dwindle, as did box office returns.

X-Men: First Class proved to be the creative shot in the arm that the franchise needed and with Days Of Future Past hitting the highest box office results yet, it was expected that Apocalypse would catapult the series nearer to the billion-dollar club.

But it didn’t. In fact, X-Men: Apocalypse’s take is just north of $500m, »

Wolverine 3 Set Photos Reunite Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart

10 June 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few lucky locals in New Orleans got to witness the reunion of Logan and Professor X this week, as shooting on Wolverine 3 continues. Both Hugh Jackman, who reprises his role as the indestructible mutant Wolverine, and Patrick Stewart, the original Charles Xavier, are looking a lot worse for wear in these latest images. In fact, Professor X appears to be in pretty bad shape.

The images were shared by Just Jared, who have over 15 new images. You'll have to visit the site to see them, as we're not legally allowed to show them to you here. We do have a few sneak peeks in the Twitter embeds below.

Hugh Jackman is seen pushing his co-star Patrick Stewart in a wheelchair. This is the fifth X-Men movie the pair have appeared in together. They kicked off the franchise in 2000 with the original movie, teaming up again for X2: X-Men United »

Box Office: X-men: Apocalypse Performs Admirably Overseas But May End Up Being A Flop Domestically

5 June 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As expected, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows was the #1 movie at the North American box office this weekend with a mediocre $35.3 million, a far cry from the amount earned by the first instalment back in 2014 (65.6 million). Its current worldwide cume is $69.3 million, so it has a lot of work to do if it hopes to come anywhere near the near $500 million made by its predecessor. X-Men: Apocalypse meanwhile fell to #2 domestically with $22.3 million, a massive 66% drop which is just slightly lower than X-Men: The Last Stand's 67% fall a decade ago during the same weekend. With a current haul of $116.5 million, analysts now believe that the Bryan Singer helmed release will conclude its run with $165 million, a paltry amount just 5% better than the first X-Men in 2000 and less than Batman v Superman's opening weekend and what Deadpool made during its first five days.    Things are »

Box Office Democracy: X-Men: Apocalypse

2 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The X-Men movies have a fairly high average quality for a franchise going in to its sixth entry. In fact, with the exception of a Brett Ratner directed monstrosity of bloat and pettiness, there isn’t a truly bad film to be found in the bunch. For a stretch of my college career I would have told you X2 was the best superhero movie ever made. I would have been wrong— Unbreakable was a lot better and Spider-Man 2 has held up better over the years if we’re talking strictly licensed fare. But this is a franchise that means something to me so it’s a shame to see them start to slip a little bit. Not that X-Men: Apocalypse is a bad movie or anything, but it’s a frustrating one in many respects and one that could be pointed to some years down the road as the »

X-Men: Apocalypse - the deleted scenes & unused ideas

What went on at that mall? Why was Jubilee barely in it? Here’s some info about the ditched ideas from X-Men: Apocalypse...

This article contains spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Clocking in at 2 hours and 27 minutes, X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t exactly a short movie. With that in mind, you might be surprised to learn that director Bryan Singer left a fair chunk of material on the editing room floor. Although there was no Rogue Cut-sized narrative strand cut out this time, writer/producer Simon Kinberg has already told Collider that roughly 13 minutes were chopped duing the editing process.

There’s also a little bit on information floating around regarding earlier versions of the film’s script, and how Apocalypse could have played out differently if other ideas had been kept in. Here’s our roundup of everything that didn’t make it into the movie...

How Many Kills Has Wolverine Committed in the X-Men Movies?

31 May 2016 11:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the long holiday weekend, the final X-Men prequel X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, which featured the eighth franchise appearance of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. The actor is currently filming his final movie as Logan, Wolverine 3, which is set to hit theaters next March. Before you go see X-Men: Apocalypse in theaters again, a new video has surfaced which breaks down all of Wolverine's kills throughout this beloved franchise, and the number may be higher than you think.

This kill count video comes courtesy of Mr. Sunday Movies, which covers all of Wolverine's "direct and indirect murders" from X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past. We're not sure why the original X-Men or 2013's The Wolverine was left out of this video, but this kill count even includes the bears that Logan has killed throughout his 16-year run as Wolverine. »

Bryan Singer Says He's Stepping Away From The X-men Franchise, But Not Forever

31 May 2016 2:58 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Director Bryan Singer has had a lot of say in the X-Men film franchise for the past 16 years. Minus his absence with X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the director has had a large hand in bringing the mutant team to life and helping pioneer the superhero film genre as a whole. Now, after the release of his most recent installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, Singer is looking to take a break from the film series. "I recently met [Oscar-winning director] Danny Boyle -- he and I have known of each other for many years but never met. He was prepping 'Steve Jobs' at the time and I was doing this and he said, 'Are you going to be doing 'X-Men' movies forever?' And I didn’t actually say no. The reality is, even though I’m very desperate to jump to something completely different, I’ve spent so »

*Update* Box Office Forecast: 'X-men: Apocalypse'

29 May 2016 11:17 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Update:

Both Deadline and Box Office Mojo are confirming my prediction from Friday's forecast. While some industry folks had X-men: Apocalypse opening north of $100 Million, with others thinking $90 Million could be in the cards, and with Fox projecting a conservative $80 Million, I said the film would likely fall just short of Fox's number.

The film is now looking like it will have pulled in $77-$80 Million by the time tomorrow's Memorial Day holiday wraps up. This is, by no means, a catastrophe for Fox- who seemed to always think it'd do a number in this range- but if the film can't crack $80 Million- which is something both X-men: The Last Stand and X-men: Days Of Future Past managed to do, it's definitely something Fox needs to pay attention to. 

Also worth noting: The film's primary competition, Alice Through The Looking Glass, badly stumbled out of the gate. So the somewhat »

​Why Did 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' Tank at the Box Office?

29 May 2016 9:29 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It was supposed to be a competitive race this weekend, with two blockbuster sequels grabbing large hauls of Memorial Day weekend dollars. But it wasn't even close. As the holiday revelry ends, "X-Men: Apocalypse" stands as a modest superhero hit, while "Alice Through the Looking Glass" has fallen down the rabbit hole.

"X-Men" always had the edge, as it was opening on 400 more screens than "Alice." As it turned out, it debuted near the low end of expectations, with an estimated $65.0 million through Sunday and a likely $80 million for the four-day weekend. That's not up to the franchise's usual standards, but it's not terrible.

And it's far better than "Alice," which mustered only an estimated $28.1 million through Sunday, with a projected four-day weekend of $35.6 million. For a movie that cost a reported $170 million to make, that's a catastrophe.

What happened? Was "Alice" a foreseeable disaster? In some ways, although it »

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Leads Anemic Holiday Weekend With $65 Million So Far

X-Men: Apocalypse” has brought in an estimated $65 million from the holiday weekend box office so far. Up against mixed reviews, that number is much lower than grosses made from earlier movies in the 20th Century Fox mutant superhero series that opened on Memorial Day weekend. “X-Men: The Last Stand” amassed $102.8 million by Sunday in 2006 and “Days of Future Past” grossed $90.8 million by that day in 2014.

Poll: What Did You Think Of Bryan Singer's X-men: Apocalypse?

28 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Currently, X-Men: Apocalypse has a score of 47% on Rotten Tomatoes, and while that site's usefulness is questionable at best, it's clear that reviews for the Bryan Singer helmed release have been mixed. Despite that, the conclusion to the trilogy which began in 2011 with X-Men: First Class looks set to be a box office hit, though perhaps not quite as big as Fox were hoping for ($1 billion isn't going to happen). Third instalments in superhero movie franchises have often struggled (look at Spider-Man 3 and X-Men: The Last Stand), but does it manage to avoid the threequel curse, a la Captain America: Civil War? We've reviewed X-Men: Apocalypse, taken a look at the things which did and didn't work, and even counted down the best Easter Eggs, but now it's time for You to weigh in on the movie.

‘X-Men’ Dominating Johnny Depp’s ‘Alice’ with $80 Million

28 May 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

X-Men: Apocalypse” is showing superhero power at the U.S. box office with a formidable $80 million over the four day of the Memorial Day holiday — doubling “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” Saturday estimates showed.

U.S. audiences responded enthusiastically to Fox’s latest iteration of its sturdy “X-Men” franchise, which is performing in line with recent expectations. In a rare battle of tentpole franchise films opening against each other, Friday’s first day for “Apocalypse” generated about $26.4 million  at 4,150 locations while Johnny Depp’s “Alice” sequel finished under $10 million at 3,763 sites, projecting to a four-day total of around $40 million that’s well below earlier forecasts.

X-Men: Apocalypse,” the fourth “X-Men” movie directed by Bryan Singer, is continuing an impressive legacy on the Memorial Day holiday. Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” opened to $110.6 million two years ago; in 2006, Brett Ratner’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” opened with $122.9 million.
