Director Bryan Singer is currently bringing together 20th Century Fox's two X-Men timelines as cameras roll on next year's time-travelling mutant epic X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the studio itself has bigger plans afoot, bringing in acclaimed comic book writer and producer Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) to serve as creative consultant as it attempts to replicate the success of Marvel Studios' with its own shared movie universe.
Of course, given the fact Fox only has the rights to X-Men and The Fantastic Four (which is being rebooted in 2015 under Chronicle helmer Josh Trank), the studio will be hoping that the uncanny world of the X-Men provides enough of a pool of heroes to spearhead this universe. Speaking to SFX (via ComicBookTherapy), Singer has spoken briefly about Millar's role, as well as his own plans to develop the X-Men universe which he launched himself back in 2000:

Now that Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is off to a fine start at the box office, having posted a record June opening in the States, it would seem the stage is set for Warner Bros. to launch its long-awaited DC movie universe. We've already heard that Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer have been contracted to fast-track Man of Steel 2 through development, and now we may have an indication of a release date for the sequel, as well as the eagerly-anticipated Justice League movie.
According to The Wall Street Journal, "Warner is already in development on a sequel to Man of Steel and is expected to fast track that for release as soon as 2014" while "it has long been developing a Justice League team-up movie featuring characters such as the Flash and Wonder Woman that could come out as soon as 2015." Of course, both of these dates seem hugely ambitious, »

At first it was seen as the potential Twilight of zombie movies, and by that I mean it could have turned a much loved subject (like zombies or vampires) into much hated genre: the romantic horror, full ofclichés. But trust me, this is Nothing like it.
Warm Bodies is a new approach to the zombie universe, which has started to become a new mass phenomenon. The film stars Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), Rob Corddry (Childrens Hospital) and John Malkovich (Con Air). Considered as a new take on the classic Romeo and Juliet tale, the official synopsis is:“
After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as »

He has traveled to the moon, survived Alcatraz, put a few good men on trial and, yes, once almost got arrested for dancing. But in the course of more than 35 years of acting, one of the few things Kevin Bacon never explored was a series regular TV role – until Fox’s The Following invited him to hunt down a clever killer. Now, his turn as troubled FBI consultant Ryan Hardy could cop him his first Emmy nomination since the HBO miniseries Taking Chance.

Another international trailer has been released for the upcoming supernatural action-adventure flick R.I.P.D.
Based on a Dark Horse comic book series by Peter Lenkov, the film stars Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern) and Jeff Bridges (who seems to be reprising his role of Rooster Cogburn from True Grit) as a pair of deceased law-enforcers tasked with tracking down evil spirits. It's basically Men in Black meets Peter Jackson's The Frighteners. It is directed Robert Schwentke, whose previous works includes Flightplan, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Red.
Along with Reynolds and Bridges, the film stars Kevin Bacon (X-Men: First Class, The Following), and Mary-Louise Parker (Red, The Spiderwick Chronicles). Here’s the official synopsis, followed by the new trailer below...

Naomi Watts plays Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic, Diana, whose teaser trailer just hit the Internet today. But just who exactly is taking on the iconic roles of her two young sons, Prince William and Prince Harry? Leave the former to 12-year-old Laurence Belcher. The English child actor has some pretty impressive credits to his name despite only being in show biz for five years. Per IMDb, Belcher's previous films include X-Men: First Class, in which he played Professor Charles Xavier at age 12, as well as starring as Young Kazran in the British TV series Dr. Who. How close do you think he resembles the real William? We'll let you be the judge. As for Prince Harry, he's »
Trevor Hogg chats with Primetime Emmy-winner Everett Burrell about his career, the visual effects industry and working for Look Effects...
Ray Harryhausen and Everett Burrell“Growing up my dad was a musician and my mom was artist,” recalls Everett Burrell who drew and painted as a child. “My little kids draw and paint now, and they’re only three and two. It’s in the blood.” A fascination with special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (Clash of the Titans) expanded into a business venture with John Vulich (Lost Boys). “I was into creature effects and props when I was younger. I had a company called Optic Nerve Studios where I did zombies and creatures. I started playing with the computer in 1989 and I’ve loved it ever since. I loved the control and flexibility but I still respect effects. My heart is in the hands on stuff.” The interest in the »
The Wolverine may be a big name hitter this summer, but many will be approaching the film with some trepidation after X-men: The Last Stand & X-men Origins: Wolverine, no matter how good X-men: First Class was. I’ve been cautiously optimistic, but this is the first trailer I’ve seen that really seems to nail the tone and make me think that this may very well be the best superhero film of the year. The story and action seem clearer in this international trailer, as well as having a dark tone similar to X2. Only time will tell, but this has inspired me to watch all the X-men movies once again and get very excited indeed.
The Wolverine will see Hugh Jackman return to the role of the healing, adamantium clawed mutant for the 6th time. This time Logan will return to Japan to meet an old friend who lusts after his healing capabilities. »

Back in February 2011, Deadline reported that director Matthew Vaughn, (X-Men: First Class) was keen on Jonathan Ross' unreleased comic book concept 'Golden Age' which deals with retired superheroes. It was even reported that Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty were being sought for roles. However since then, not much traction has occurred on the project. Attending yesterday's London Gala premiere of 'Much Ado About Nothing', Ross gave an update on 'Golden Age' as well as a few other projects. When asked about 'America's Got Powers' he countered, "Byran Hitch, the artist is down stairs, so ask him. Book 7 should have been finished by now, he claims it's nearly finished," Ross continued (while smiling so as to take the sting out of his words). He admitted, "I haven't seen any pages from it yet. Maybe it's done, maybe it isn't." Ross then nonchalantly revealed that,"'Golden Age' »

We've been inundated with video game news today as Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo kicked off this year's E3 by unveiling their latest wares - including the long-awaited Xbox One and PlayStation 4 - but tucked away among all the next-gen excitement is some news about two upcoming Ubisoft / Tom Clancy movie adaptations in Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell.
First up comes a report from Variety which suggests that Michael Bay has signed on to develop Ghost Recon for Warner Bros. through his Platinum Dunes production company, with the Transformers 4 helmer apparently open to directing the adaptation of the best-selling third person shooter series which has shifted over 24 million units since debuting back in 2001.
"These guys don’t belong to any specific organization," said Jean Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, regarding the unit of U.S. Special Forces at the centre of Ghost Recon. "They’re in the field where the U. »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Frank Marshall is closing in on a deal to produce Assassin's Creed for New Regency and Ubisoft Motion Pictures. He has an exceptional pedigree when it comes to producing blockbusters, and his involvement should provide this movie with the level of quality that Ubisoft are taking an active role in attempting to ensure for their adaptations. Mike Lesslie has written the script for Assassin's Creed and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) is attached to star. This is the third major piece of news about a Ubisoft movie adaptation to hit this week following the announcement that The Expendables 2's Basil Iwanyk will produce Splinter Cell and Michael Bay will do the same - and possibly even direct - Ghost Recon. »
"After Earth" star Zoe Kravitz and her "Gossip Girl" boyfriend Penn Badgley have decided to call it quits on their relationship after nearly two years of dating. Sources tell Us Weekly, "It wasn't a sad breakup ... It's all good between them."
Penn and Zoe live together in a New York apartment, so it's probably safe to assume one or both of them will be moving out. But since the former couple's pal says things "really did end on good terms," perhaps they'll try the New York trend of going from couple to roommates.
Zoe, 24, and Penn, 26, are reportedly both focusing on their clashing film careers and "just didn't have time for each other." Badgely just wrapped "Parts Per Billion" with Josh Hartnett, and Kravitz is in Chicago working on the film adaptation of the young adult novel, "Divergent."
We were excited to learn that Archie would finally be making its way to the big screen in a live-action movie, but had our doubts that gay Riverdale teen Kevin Keller would be included. Well, details of the movie have been released, and there’s good news:
“It’s Archie’s coming-of-age story. Hopefully, it will be the “Archie” movie people have been anticipating for 70-plus years. And here’s a tidbit: Expect to see fan-favorites Cheryl Blossom and Kevin Keller in it, in very prominent ways.”
The big dilemma now is, who should play Kevin? While you mull it over, I have a few suggestions…
Lets see … blond … freshly scrubbed … has experience playing gay … The first person I thought of was 22-year-old Chandler Massey. Plus … he knows how »
