'X-Men: Apocalypse' Brings Back Composer John Ottman

26 February 2015 12:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the cast for director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse continues to take shape, the filmmaker has brought on composer John Ottman to work on the score. This will mark the composer and Bryan Singer's third collaboration on an X-Men movie, following 2003's X2: X-Men United and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Apocalypse is the last installment of the trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, with this new story set in the 1980s.

John Ottman Confirmed To Return As X-men: Apocalypse Composer

26 February 2015 11:59 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  If you liked the scores of X-Men 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, then you'll love X-Men: Apocalypse next year as it has been confirmed by Film Music Reporter that John Ottman has officially signed up to return for the movie. Some fans preferred Henry Jackman's take on the mutant characters in X-Men: First Class, but Ottman's work in last year's "inbetweenquel" was still great. For those of you needing a reminder, this one will star Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Rose Byrne, and franchise newcomers Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp, and Ben Hardy. Bryan Singer will direct and Simon Kinberg is writing. X-Men: Apocalypse is set to be released on May 27th, 2016.  »

Ben Hardy Joins X-Men: Apocalypse

25 February 2015 12:46 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There's been quite a number of casting announcements over the last few weeks, and here's one more, with Variety announcing that Eastenders star Ben Hardy has joined the cast of Bryan Singer's wrap up to the trilogy started with X-Men: First Class. He will be joining other newcomers Kodi Smit-Mcphee, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan (playing the young Cyclops, a role Hardy was previously on the shortlist for), Sophie Turner, and Oscar Isacc, as the titular villain, alongside the returning Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Jennifer Lawrence. There is no word on who Hardy will be playing, but the role is said to be 'significant' to the X-Men universe. With no idea of where the story is going, and over three hundred characters introduced in the X-Men comics to choose from, there's really no way at this time who he'll be playing. X-Men: Apocalypse hits cinemas May 27th 2016. »

Watch: Katee Sackhoff, James Van Der Beek Kick Ass in ‘Power Rangers’ Fan Film

24 February 2015 4:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Power Rangers are all grown up and the future looks … dark.

Film producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn teamed up to created a bootlegged, revisionist future version of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” in 14 minute short film called “Power/Rangers.” The fan film imagines that the Rangers have matured past their teenage years, and now live in a much bleaker world.

The video stars “Battlestar Galactica” actress Katee Sackhoff as Pink Ranger Kimberly (a role originated by Amy Jo Johnson in the TV series), and “Dawson’s Creek” headliner James Van Der Beek as disgruntled former Red Ranger Rocky (played by Steve Cardenas on the show).

In the short, Rocky has captured Kimberly, and is interrogating her, trying to figure out the location of Green Ranger Tommy who is apparently the only other Ranger still alive. The film features blood, bad language and a killer twist.

How X-Men: Days of Future Past derailed the X-Men franchise

24 February 2015 2:48 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on why X-Men: Days of Future Past has derailed the X-Men franchise…

I grew up with the X-Men franchise, and found myself getting less and less invested with every movie. They haven’t aged well, and there’s something a bit dull about some of the drama, especially that centered around Jean Grey, Wolverine, and Cyclops.  There’s the Rogue and Iceman subplot that in retrospect feels really Twilight-ish.  There’s also the fact that up to this point every X-Men movie has had Wolverine in it, and I’m burned out on it. The saving grace for the franchise was X-Men: First Class, which brought a breath of fresh air to the franchise and was something entirely new, sort of.  I even enjoyed The Wolverine, which made Logan somewhat interesting and had some interesting characters. And then this little movie called Days of Future Past came out and threw off the momentum. »

Kingsman: The Secret Service crosses $150 million worldwide

23 February 2015 5:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With talk of a sequel being bounded around, it’s good news for Kingsman: The Secret Service as the movie passed $150 million worldwide over the weekend.

The movie, directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class), took $17.5 million in the Us, which was only marginally behind Fifty Shades of Grey‘s $23 million. With its foreign total of $86 million, Kingsman: The Secret Service now sits at $153.5 million worldwide – a great result for a movie with a projected budget of $81 million. You can order the first comic in Mark Miller’s Kingsman: The Secret Service on Amazon here.

Kingsman: Bond with a Gangster Swag (Featuring Brad Allen “Gorgeous”)

21 February 2015 9:22 AM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Kingsman: the Secret Service is the fifth directorial effort from director Matthew Vaughan and yet another film that I thoroughly enjoyed. I should mention that I have been a fan of Mark Vaughan’s work since Layer Cake, one of my favorite British gangster movies and Vaughan’s first feature. So I admit I’m a little biased, I loved Kick Ass, I really loved X-Men: First Class, and I was so excited when I heard about this film. Yes, I know I left out Stardust, yes, it’s because I really didn’t like it.

Based on yet another comic by Mark Millar, Kingsman is a breathtaking re-imagination of the whole British spy genre…and then some. Interestingly enough this is not the first Mark Millar project Vaughan has helmed, the first being Kick –Ass 1 (the better one). Vaughan is also credited as “co-plotter” on The Secret Service, the »

Evan Peters on Quicksilver's Return in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

20 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more popular elements of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past was the introduction of Quicksilver, played by American Horror Story star Evan Peters. While doing press for his upcoming thriller The Lazarus Effect, in theaters February 27, Evan Peters confirmed that he will return as Quicksilver in X-Men: Apocalypse, although he isn't quite sure what's in store for his character yet. Here's what he had to say below:

"I think so, yes. I assume it as well, but I don't know what I'm supposed to say and not supposed to say. I haven't seen a script."

When asked if his schedule has been worked out yet, and when he will start production, the actor remained tight-lipped.

"No. We'll see. I think... I don't know what I can say and what I can't say. All I can say is that I have not seen a script yet."

Week in Review: Jessica Williams responds to ‘Daily Show’ hosting pushes

20 February 2015 8:55 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When it was announced that Jon Stewart would be leaving The Daily Show, the Internet responded in turn by nominating some viable candidates (you can read our list here). At the top of most packs was Jessica Williams, the 25-year-old black comic who has been the show’s most surprising correspondent addition in years and has proved herself to be acerbic and hilarious when talking about issues related to feminism, Beyonce, or black hair.

In fact, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 even includes a scene set in 2025 where Williams has nestled comfortably into the hosting chair. If the Cubs can win the World Series in Back to the Future 2, that prediction is good enough for me!

Williams however, despite being very humbled, tweeted that she was “under qualified” for the position, presumably with the idea that she’s only 25 and has a whole career ahead of her to do whatever she wants. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Art Shows New Cerebro Helmet

19 February 2015 5:23 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production on X-Men: Apocalypse slated to begin this coming April in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has been sharing a number of behind-the-scenes photos, including a look at the 1983 Cerebro set being built. Today, the filmmaker has shared yet another image through his Instagram account, which teases a new design for the Cerebro helmet, which will be worn by James McAvoy's Charles Xavier.

One thing we can't tell from the photo is whether or not Xavier will be bald in X-Men: Apocalypse, which rounds out the trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Of course, Patrick Stewart's version of Professor X in the original X-Men trilogy and X-Men: Days of Future Past was completely bald, so it would make sense to have this younger version of the character eventually take on this look.

Mad Max: Fury Road gets an international trailer

19 February 2015 10:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the long-awaited release of Mad Max: Fury Road draws ever-closer, an international trailer has arrived online for the latest chapter in George Miller’s iconic post-apocalyptic action series, although by the looks of things it doesn’t offer up any new footage from the Tom Hardy-headlined film. Still, it’s pretty great, so check it out below…

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of »

X-Men: Apocalypse New Cast Member Announced

18 February 2015 1:07 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Last seen portrayed by Alan Cumming in X-Men 2, Nightcrawler will be returning to the X-Men: universe for X-Men: Apocalypse, with, announced by director Bryan Singer on Instagram, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) stepping into the two toed shoes of the blue skinned teleporter. He will be joining fellow young-ified versions of familiar characters Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), and it'll be interesting to see what Singer has in store for the characters, and how they will fit in alongside the returning cast Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rose Byrne, reprising her role of Moira McTaggert from X-Men: First Class. X-Men: Apocalypse is released May 27th 2016. »

Kodi Smit-McPhee Joins X-Men: Apocalypse As Young Nightcrawler

17 February 2015 8:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fan-favorite teleporting mutant Nightcrawler was a scene stealer in 2003’s X2: X-Men United, but has remained absent from the franchise ever since. Thankfully, that’s about to change, as Bryan Singer has announced that a young version of the character will be in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse and that he’ll be played by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Let Me In actor Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Singer made the announcement via Instagram, saying simply that he’s excited to welcome Smit-McPhee to the film. How big the role is or what it might entail remains a mystery, but I imagine it will be a relatively small part, and perhaps similar to Evan Peters’ role as Quicksilver in last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past

That is, of course, conjecture on my part, and based solely on who else Singer has managed to wrangle together for this film. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Gets Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

17 February 2015 8:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some late night casting news has just broke courtesy of Bryan Singer. The director welcomed young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee to the X-Men: Apocalypse cast courtesy of his personal Instagram. Kodi Smit-McPhee is confirmed to be taking on the role of Kurt Wagner, otherwise known as Nightcrawler, in this latest Mutant adventure.

Introduced in Giant-Size X-Men #1 way back in 1975, Nightcrawler has superhuman agility, can teleport, and is endowed with adhesive hands and feet. His physical appearance includes dark blue skin which allows him to become nearly invisible in shadows, two-toed feet and three-fingered hands, yellow eyes, pointed ears and a prehensile tail. In Nightcrawler's earlier comic book appearances he is seen as a happy-go-lucky practical joker, and is a fan of swashbuckling adventures. Nightcrawler is also a Catholic, and while this is not emphasized as much in his earlier comic book appearances, in later depictions Nightcrawler is more vocal about his faith. »
