The acclaimed thriller starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy will unveil a special preview Sunday, January 19, immediately after the "Nfc Championship Game" (live, 6:00 Pm-cc Et), kicking off 15 heart-pounding weeks of uninterrupted episodes. The Season 2 premiere of "The Following" will air Monday, January 27 (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), following an encore of the preview (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt).

After Bryan Singer dropped his megaton announcement last week many wondered if he would be directing the next entry in the X-Men series. After all, he didn’t handle X3, and he served as a storywriter and producer for First Class, so he’s shown that he’s not necessarily tied at the hip to the director’s chair. Vulture is now reporting that he is, indeed, set to helm X-Men: Apocalypse. This would mark the first time the director has done back-to-back X-Men films since he did the first two.
Also of note in the report is that the next film will center on the younger stars/characters in the X-universe. With First Class, they made the first X-Men film that didn’t star series leads Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, or Halle Berry. It instead focused on Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and other newcomers to the franchise. »

After he debuted the X-Men franchise in 2000 and followed up with its 2003 sequel, Bryan Singer is of course returning to the director's chair for next summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. And while Singer made the big announcement last week that an X-Men: Apocalypse is coming in May of 2016, his concise Twitter post failed to mention if he'd be behind the camera again or just serving as a producer, which he's done for X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class. Well, according to Vulture's reliable sources, Bryan Singer will indeed direct Apocalypse, which will be the fifth X-Men installment and a “direct sequel set up” in the closing moment of Days of Future Past. Also, while the 2014 movie mixes the franchise's original actors with the First Class gang, the 2016 sequel is “intended to focus strictly on the younger James McAvoy-Michael Fassbender cast.” This news seems »
Last week Bryan Singer, who is helming next summer's confusing-sounding "X-Men: Days of Future Past," a superhero movie that unites the original cast of his first two "X"-films with the younger, sexier "X-Men: First Class" cast in a jumble of time travel/alternate dimension mumbo jumbo, let out a cryptic tweet that seemed to be indicating that he would also be directing the follow-up to "Days of Future Past." That tweet ("#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!") has given way to concrete details, courtesy of Vulture.
It seems that, yes, "X-Men: Apocalypse," said to feature the villainous first mutant Apocalypse for his inaugural big screen appearance, will debut in the summer of 2016 and Singer will be back in the director's chair. This is his first back-to-back "X" endeavor since "X-Men" (2000) and "X2: X-Men United" (2003). If you'll recall, the director sat out of the abysmal "X-Men: The Last Stand" as well as series reboot "X-Men: First Class. »

Simon Kinberg (X-men: The Last Stand, Star Wars Rebels) produced 2011′s X-men: First Class and co-wrote the upcoming X-men: Days Of Future Past and Fantastic Four. Now it’s looking like he will shape a shared universe for 20th Century Fox’s Marvel properties that will combine all of their characters and tell shared narratives across multiple films.
This dosen’t come as a massive shock after Marvel Studios changed the superhero movie making game with Avengers Assemble, and subsequently showed the world that not only can a shared universe work but it can also make a tonne of money at the box office. Marvel studios have Joss Whedon to guide their film universe, and Warner Bros have David S. Goyer signed on for a similar role in order to produce a DC Comics cinematic universe. Now 20th Century Fox are following their lead and will be combining the Marvel »

Yesterday, Bryan Singer announced that 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise would see another release in 2016 with X-Men: Apocalypse, and now it's been announced via The Hollywood Reporter that writer-producer Simon Kinberg has signed a three-year deal with a view to expanding the studio's Marvel properties "into full-blown universes, with the hope of creating for Fox something akin to the Marvel model of interlocking movies."
"I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel," says Kinberg, whose credits include X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class, as well as the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Fantastic Four. "I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."
Now, quite where this leave's Fox's 'Marvel Consultant' Mark Millar is anyone's guess...
As well as developing Fox's Marvel slate, Kinberg also has »

Since The Avengers, Marvel Studios has been setting the superhero blockbuster tone and watching all the other studios try to scramble together whatever costumed crusaders they have. Marvel took the time to build up to Avengers and the company has the character library to move forward at a steady, deliberate pace. Meanwhile, this week has made it abundantly clear how badly the other studios want an Avengers-like movie and the universe to go with it. Wonder Woman will now be in the Batman/Superman movie; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is so eager to lead into the Sinister Six, it's probably showing off its post-credits scene in the first trailer; and X-Men: Days of Future Past is still five months away, but yesterday Bryan Singer was already tweeting about the next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. We don't know if these movies will be good, but we know they'll be big. In »

Bricks: characters that are known for brawn, rather than brains. These characters don’t really have any esoteric powers and can’t fly (flying bricks, like Superman, Hancock, G-Girl etc are a different matter entirely) – they’re just generally rock solid, very strong and extremely durable.
Fiction is full of these characters, whether it be the world of movies, television, comic books, video games or otherwise, the super-strong and super-durable character is an archetype for heroes and villains that has been around for many years and will still be around for many years to come.
As a result, I’m going to take a look at a few of these characters from the world of movies who, should you ever meet them (you know, if they weren’t fictional), you really wouldn’t want to cross, thanks to their ability to beat the living hell out of people with ease. »

Last summer's The Wolverine movie, in spite of a few problems, turned out to be the second most successful X-Men movie to date at the worldwide box office. It's not budged, er, Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand from first place there, but it had a good go.
As such, Fox is already looking for another Wolverine movie, and it's re-recruiting director James Mangold to make it. This hasn't been made official yet, but in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, he's been talking about the last film and the next one.
Recalling his pitch to Fox that landed him The Wolverine job in the first place, Mangold said that "I told them I was interested in making a movie about someone who feels like anyone they love will die, »
Next year, Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox are set to bring one of the most beloved X-Men tales to the big screen with X-Men: Days of Future Past, although it won't be a direct adaptation of the classic comic book story, with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine taking the place of Kitty Pryde as he goes back in time to try and prevent a catastrophic future for mutantkind. Speaking to Total Film (via Cbm), screenwriter Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) has revealed the thinking behind the switch, and it's not down to the fact that Wolverine is the crown jewel in Fox's X-Men franchise... well, not entirely, anyway...
"We made the decision for a lot of reasons, some of them obvious and some of them more nuanced, to make it Wolverine who goes back in time. One reason is that he's the protagonist of the franchise, and probably the »

The upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" allows the two casts - the young "X-Men First Class" and the older original trilogy group - to come together thanks to a bit of clever time travel.
In the original comic mini-series, the character of Kitty Pryde is the one to go back in time to stop a post-apocalyptic future from happening. In the film though, it's Hugh Jackman's Wolverine whose consciousness is transferred back into his 1970s-era body with the help of Kitty's powers.
One of the film's writers, Simon Kinberg, explained to Total Film why that decision was made:
"We made the decision for a lot of reasons, some of them obvious and some of them more nuanced, to make it Wolverine who goes back in time. One reason is that he’s the protagonist of the franchise, and probably the most beloved character to a mass audience.

This is the age of the Superhero movie.
With the success of films like Man of Steel, the enormous Avengers franchise, The Dark Knight Trilogy and The Amazing Spider-Man the genre couldn’t be more popular. However while many franchises were born and have died since it first started in 2000, there’s one series of films that has kept going on after 13 years, 6 films and at least three potential sequels in development: the X-Men Franchise is with any doubt one of the best ones out there.
After the failure that X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine meant to the franchise, and a much needed shot in the arm, things are going pretty well for Fox’s superhero movies. First Class was an excellent film and The Wolverine is definitely one of the most badass films of the year, and with Days of Future Past meaning the return of »

A couple more roles have been filled for Season 2 of "The Following," one of which is recurring with the other being a guest star. Read on for the details of who from Paranormal Activity 2 and "The Killing" will next be seen on the popular Fox series.
Per The Wrap, Sprague Grayden (pictured right; PA2, "Low Winter Sun") will join "The Following" in a recurring role, and Gregg Henry (pictured below; "The Killing," "Hung," Slither) has signed on to guest star.
Grayden will play Carrie Cooke, a tabloid reporter turned best-selling author. She wrote a book on the Carroll/Havenport events and continues to investigate and write about the killings, which puts her at odds with Ryan Hardy.
Producers are keeping Grayden’s first appearance and number of episodes under wraps.
Henry will guest star as Dr. Strauss, a distinguished doctor who may have a dark secret.

Next year’s X-Men ultra-sequel has officially cashed in on the Killing Kennedy craze. Just one week after bookshelves and TV schedules were flooded with memorials for the 35th president of the United States, Days of Future Past has just released a new video offering a new theory: Maybe Magneto did. The video proffers the idea that Magneto was present on the grassy knoll on November 22, and that he used his powers to “bend” the bullet. This ridiculous idea still makes more sense than anything in Oliver Stone’s JFK, so watch the video below:
Now, here’s where things get fun. »
