Bryan Singer calls teen-molestation claims 'bullshit'

17 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, April 17: Bryan Singer has denied the sexual molestation claims against him and has called it "bullshit".

The 'X-Men' director's attorney said that the lawsuit against him is "completely without merit" and is confident that Singer will be "vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit", TMZ reported.

The lawsuit claims that the 'Valkyrie' director molested a young teenager, who is now 30, after luring him to a mansion in Encino to attend a raunchy Hollywood party which had a reputation for featuring "sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys who were present for the parties".

New Licensee Is Changing the Way China Releases Foreign Films, But Quotas Remain

2 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A second pipeline for movie imports is opening in China soon, causing a seismic shift in the country’s distribution sector, and promising to offer better financial terms to studios onfilms that are allowed to enter the mainland, improving the split on per-pic profits to as much 50%.

Yet movie import quotas remain firmly in place, and studios are still not allowed to set up their own distribution shingles in the country. China currently allows only one firm, state-owned China Film Group, to operate as a gateway for imports of foreign films that can enjoy full revenue-sharing release.

As always in China, the particulars are complex. Leading the new entity, which will be called China National Culture Group, is Chris Lee, the former Columbia TriStar head and producer of “Superman Returns” and “Valkyrie.” He has been tapped president of China Railsmedia Group, one of the components in a chain of companies »

Chris Lee Boosts China’s Second Distribution License Initiative

27 March 2014 8:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – Chris Lee, the former head of Columbia TriStar Pictures, producer of “Superman Returns” and “Valkyrie,” is to become president of China Railsmedia Group, one of the components in a chain of companies that will operate China’s second film import and distribution license.

The Hong Kong-based company will imminently change its name to China National Culture Group, a move that reflects both its new role and its close connections with China National Culture & Arts Centre (Cncac), the mainland Chinese state-owned enterprise that expects to receive the second license.

Currently China allows only one firm, another state-owned company, China Film Group, to operate as a gateway for imports of foreign films that can enjoy full revenue-sharing release. The country currently has a quota of 34 films per year which can be distributed this way.

At an event on Thursday in Hong Kong, China Railsmedia/Cncg held a briefing for senior »

Interview: Mark Long on ‘Rubicon’ Web Series and Recreating ‘Seven Samurai’ with SEALs

13 March 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In 2012, writer Mark Long teamed with writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) for the graphic novel Rubicon, a modern re-imagining of Akira Kurosawa’s seminal film, Seven Samurai. Swapping samurais for Navy SEALs, the story focuses on a group of five Seal operators who must defend the residents of a remote mountain village from the Taliban.

The ambitious undertaking was conceived as a transmedia project that would include not only the graphic novel, but also a feature film, a video game, and a web series. The latter, called Rubicon: The Beginning, premieres exclusively on Machinima today. You can check out the pilot episode below.

-

Screen Rant had the opportunity to talk with Mark Long (who also co-wrote the web series) about the project and the unique role that transmedia has played in bringing it to life.

Thomas Kretschmann Lands Villainous Role In Hitman Reboot Agent 47

10 March 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Video-game adaptations are a dime a dozen, but it’s rare that any of them are worth even a cursory glance. The Resident Evil franchise, BloodRayne and Silent Hill are just a few of many that have fallen completely flat in their attempts to replicate the thrills of their source material on the big screen. However, based on casting alone, 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Hitman remake Agent 47 may actually be worth checking out.

With Homeland actor Rupert Friend stepping into the title role (replacing the late Paul Walker), and Zachary Quinto set to play the main villain, Agent 47 already has more going for it than most video-game adaptations. Now, it looks like the film will boast more than one baddie, with news that Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to play Le Clerq, the chairman of an nefarious organization called Syndicate International, which schemes to build its own army of assassins. »

On Set Interview: Hugh Jackman Talks ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

24 February 2014 11:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Multi-talented, super-fit, sexy Aussie, Hugh Jackman has pretty much become synonymous with Wolverine, since being cast and owning that part in Bryan Singer’s first X-Men film, back in 2000. He has successfully proven his acting chops in many other genres such as dramas, musicals, and romantic period films. However, with his long-running role as X-Men’s mutant Logan/Wolverine, he has captivated comic-book fans worldwide and undoubtedly doubled his female audience, thanks to his “special genetic mutation,” which has clearly enhanced his physical capabilities both on and off screen.

When a group of us visited the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past last summer, we had the privilege of meeting and chatting with the gracious buff actor, who so kindly treated the entire production to special ordered Aussie sweets for their afternoon break. May I add, aside from being one of the nicest people ever, he is beyond hot, »

Set Visit Report and Bryan Singer Talks ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

20 February 2014 5:37 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Heavy breathing, hammering heart and outrageous enthusiasm in the form of tiny little squeals were just some of the things I experienced right after receiving a text from my editor last summer asking me If I was available and wanted to attend a set visit for Xmen. Umm, let’s not kid ourselves. Considering the film has an amazing all-star A-list cast and the prequel, First Class is pretty kick-ass, naturally it was a no-brainer. However, when I discovered Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy would be filming on set that day. I jumped on the chance like a cheetah on its prey.

Soon after that, this over-heated and grateful gal, flew out to Montreal on a very hot August day, to join a select group of equally curious and enthusiastic reporters. The morning after our arrival, we met our sweet Fox rep, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, to be driven »

Bryan Singer interview: X-Men, Days Of Future Past, Star Trek and more

19 February 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Ryan Lambie 19 Feb 2014 - 17:00

During our visit to the Days Of Future Past set last June, we spoke to Bryan Singer about directing X-Men, Star Trek and more...

We had to feel a little bit sorry for director Bryan Singer when we visited the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past last year. Not only did he have a gigantic summer film to create, but he also had a terrible cough ("Sorry, my allergies are going crazy," he told us), and he had load of jet-lagged writers gathering round to disrupt his day.

Yet despite his hectic schedule, Bryan Singer was kind enough to take about half an hour to answer our questions about his new X-Men film in a lively group interview. He also spoke about how Days Of Future Past harks back to the ensemble filmmaking of The Usual Suspects, and also his lifelong affection for Star Trek, »

Bryan Singer Talks ‘Man Of Steel’ And His ‘Superman Returns’ Sequel

3 February 2014 11:07 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hollywood film director Bryan Singer’s name is predominantly (and preferably) associated with launching the X-men franchise back in 2000, before making its sequel X-men 2 and returning for this years upcoming X-men: Days Of Future Past. However it’s sometimes forgotten that Singer directed the disappointing Superman Returns, which hit theatres the summer of 2006 and received an incredibly lukewarm response from fans and critics.

After almost eight years, disappointingly sparse appearances from Brandon Routh and a very successful Superman reboot in the form of last years Man Of Steel, audiences have seemingly forgotten about Singer’s failed but admirable attempt at re-launching the franchise. Now in a revealing interview Singer has spoken about his opinions on Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel and why he didn’t cast Henry Cavill in Superman Returns despite the fact that he auditioned for the part. He also addresses what he would change about Superman Returns »

Bryan Singer Reflects on Superman Returns; Reveals Scrapped Sequel’s Villain

3 February 2014 7:05 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

While he’s currently busy with X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer once (understandably) abandoned that franchise when offered the opportunity by Warner Bros. to make his own Superman movie.

That movie would be Superman Returns, a continuation of Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve’s classic series. Since then, it has been praised and criticised in equal measure. Many loved it for paying homage to that original franchise, although a lot of comic book fans condemned it for a lack of action and faithfulness to the comic books. As for how Singer feels about that, the director told Empire Magazine (via Cbm):

“Half of that I understand and half of it I never will. It was a movie made for a certain kind of audience. Perhaps more of a female audience. It wasn’t what it needed to be, I guess. I think I could lop the first »

Bryan Singer Talks Man of Steel and Reactions to Superman Returns

2 February 2014 1:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Man of Steel premiered this past summer, the last time we saw Superman on the big screen was in director Bryan Singer's 2006 adventure Superman Returns. The director recently conducted an interview with Empire Magazine, where he spoke about his reaction to Man of Steel for the first time, while revealing why he didn't cast Henry Cavill as his Superman, when he was up for the role with the actor who eventually won the part, Brandon Routh.

When asked about his thoughts on Man of Steel, the director revealed how impressed he was about the movie, although there are things he would have done differently.

"I am in awe of the world building and the scope of that picture. It's tough for me. I'm not a critic and it starts to get into a weird thing where one director is talking about another director. I know how hard it is to make a movie, »

Singer On "Superman Returns" Regrets, Sequels

2 February 2014 6:51 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

An extended interview with filmmaker Bryan Singer for the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past"-themed issue of Empire Magazine has revealed a few interesting quotes about a previous film of his - 2006's "Superman Returns".

Following the success of "Batman Begins," the Singer film attempted to relaunch Superman in an unexpected way - by delivering a more romantic adventure story that served as a pseudo-sequel to the previous Richard Donner/Chris Reeve film series.

The film flopped critically and commercially, derided for its lack of action and some questionable choices in regards to casting, character, storyline and tone. Looking back on it, Singer says he'll never truly understand all the flack the film received at the time:

"Half of that I understand and half of it I never will. It was a movie made for a certain kind of audience. Perhaps more of a female audience. It wasn't what it needed to be, »

Bryan Singer Wanted Darkseid For Superman Returns Sequel, Regrets Not Rebooting Franchise

2 February 2014 3:41 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

In the latest issue of Empire magazine, director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past) spoke about the negative reaction to his "Superman Returns" movie, which has been called the worst comic book film of all time. "Half of that I understand and half of it I never will," he said. "It was a movie made for a certain kind of audience. Perhaps more of a female audience. It wasn't what it needed to be, I guess. I think I could lop the first quarter off and start the movie a bit more aggressively and maybe find a way to start the movie with the jet disaster sequence or something. I could have grabbed the audience a little more quickly. I don't know what would have helped. Probably nothing. If I could go again, I would do an origin. I would reboot it." But the plan was always to follow »
