The latest issue of Empire is being quite generous with new photos. Yesterday, we got to see 8 never-before-seen images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we get a sneak peek at another highly anticipated superhero movie hitting in 2016. The magazine has debuted three new photos from X-Men: Apocalypse. Plus a high-res version of a still we've seen before that has caused some controversy.
So, it's safe to say that, a few weeks removed from Comic-Con, the look of X-Men: Apocalypse's main villain has not sat well with fans. Oscar Isaac plays the world's first known Mutant, an evil force awakened from his Egyptian tomb who goes on a quest to collect his four horsemen. In this latest high-res still, we get the same select moment that we previously saw. Oscar Isaac is flanked by Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), who both look great. Yet, he »
When it comes to the sometime supervillain, that was far from the worst (or should we say 'least'?) of her outfits, but now a group of artists have come together to design actual real clothes a person would wear outside.
Inspired by a recent Comics Alliance article about the unfortunate state of the White Queen's wardrobe, Terry Blas kicked off the Emma Frost Fashion Redesign Project.
"When I read X-Men I'm told that Emma Frost is several things: powerful, strong, smart, a teacher/headmistress, superpowered, and fashionable - and for me, her look does not match that," he told The Daily Dot.
"One of the problems seems to be that Emma has been mostly drawn by men who not only don't know anything about fashion, but don't bother to research it either. They default to 'cheap plastic corset' »
Dornan will star in the film as a Czechoslovakian soldier who plots to assassinate the SS officer Reinhard Heydrich, who was nicknamed The Butcher of Prague.
The Fifty Shades of Grey actor and Murphy (Peaky Blinders) are joined in the cast by Charlotte Le Bon (Yves Saint Laurent), Anna Geislerová (Something Like Happiness), Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones) and Bill Milner (X-Men: First Class).
Director Sean Ellis said of the film: "This has been a 14 year journey to get Anthropoid to the screen. I'm incredibly proud and happy to finally tell this important story about Czech resistance during World War II."
Filming for Anthropoid began earlier this month in Prague, with the film set for release at some »
Anthropoid will be released in 2016 and we have the first look images from the set.
We’ve just been alerted to the first images from the upcoming World War II movie Anthropoid, which is now shooting in the Czech Republic.
We’ve also been given a little information about the movie which stars Toby Jones, Harry Lloyd, Bill Milner, Alena Mihulova, Sam Keeley, Jamie Dornan, Cillian Murphy, Charlotte Le Bon and Anna Geislerová.
Here’s the official release.
In 1941 Czechoslovakia was occupied by Nazi forces, governed by SS General Reinhard Heydrich. Nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague”, Heydrich had a meteoric rise through the SS ranks and was now second only to Himmler and Hitler in the Third Reich’s hierarchy. His unparalleled brutality and reign of terror on the Czech resistance movement led Allied authorities in London to hatch a top-secret mission that would change history. Trained by British forces, »

During Comic-Con earlier this month, Hugh Jackman dropped by 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel, where he confirmed, once again, that Wolverine 3 will be the last time he plays the iconic Logan character. 20th Century Fox has set a March 3, 2017 release date, with James Mangold returning to the helm after directing 2013's The Wolverine. Earlier today, Hugh Jackman posted new teaser art for Wolverine 3, which features the actor holding up just one of his adamantium claws, with the hashtag #OneLastTime. The actor also reached out to fans, asking them to tell him what they want to see in Wolverine 3, in 50 words or less.
"My last time putting on the claws. What do you want to see happen? 50 words or less. I'll read as many as I can."
No story details have been given yet, but it was rumored that the beloved comic book story line Old Man Logan would be used for this superhero movie. »
With production on X-Men: Apocalypse still going strong in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared yet another photo through his Instagram account, showcasing one of the massive practical sets. The filmmaker is seen being dwarfed by an Egyptian statue. But he wouldn't offer any details about the set itself or how it fits into the X-Men: Apocalypse story. He did say on his social media account that, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse."
This photo comes just a few days after Bryan Singer posted a photo with Sir Patrick Stewart on the set, which fueled speculation that he would return in a cameo role as Charles Xavier. The actor wasn't seen in costume, but he was watching footage with the director and another filmmaker, Jason Reitman, who was putting together a live read of The Big Lebowski at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. It was never »
Last year, X-Men: Days of Future Past brought mutants together from the original X-Men franchise, and from the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. Next year, fans will be introduced to more younger versions of iconic characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Jubilee (Lana Condor), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcralwer (Kodi Smit-McPhee). While discussing his new indie film The Stanford Prison Experiment, Tye Sheridan offered some insight into his Cyclops character, played by James Marsden in the original trilogy. When asked how his version of Cyclops is different than previous iterations, the actor had this to say, in an interview with IndieWire.
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where »

Yes, Patrick Stewart is confirmed to have arrived on the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse this weekend. But don't get too excited. It doesn't look like he'll be appearing as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) in any capacity. Instead, it simply looks like he is visiting his old director Bryan Singer. And it sounds like the pair are joining director Jason Reitman for one of his legendary live script reads. No, it's not a rendition of 2000's X-Men. The trio will be enjoying a live reading of the Coen Brothers' classic The Big Lebowski.
Back in January, Patrick Stewart confirmed that neither he nor Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. The entirety of the film takes place in 1983, the same weekend Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi opened in theaters. There is no reason for the older versions »
Back in January this year, X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart thought that neither he nor co-star Ian McKellen were going to be popping up in X-Men Apocalypse, with the focus on the 1983 versions of the mutants that were rebooted in X-Men: First Class and continued into X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now a new set […]

20th Century Fox essentially invented the modern superhero movie with 2000's X-Men, and is shaping up to increase its superhero output in the coming years.
The next major release in its X-Men series will be 2016's Apocalypse, sandwiched between two spinoff movies. And that's only the beginning of their plans.
X-Men: Apocalypse will hit UK cinemas on May 19, 2016 and May 27 in the Us.
New mutants for old
Bryan Singer is returning to the franchise for his fourth X-Men outing, which has been billed as the concluding chapter in a trilogy that began in X-Men: First Class and continued through Days of Future Past - although Singer has also called it "the true birth of the X-Men".
Contrary to some of the rumours flying around, as far as we know, the original cast members from back in the 2000s (Patrick Stewart, »
The closing chapter of the Lethal Weapon movie saga was a film that, tonally, was a long way away from the movie that started the series.
In the original Lethal Weapon back in 1987, the character of Martin Riggs - as played by Mel Gibson - was on the verge of suicide, working uneasily alongside Danny Glover's Roger Murtaugh. By the end of Lethal Weapon 4, as the song Why Can't We Be Friends played out, it was all happy families. With babies. Riggs had a wife and child, any hints of suicide were long gone, and the film feels a lot more like a comedy than an action thriller.

Emmerich, who also produced the film, says, “I was always interested and passionate about telling this important story, but I feel it has never been more timely than right now.” Less than 50 years ago, in 1969, being gay was considered a mental illness; gay people could not be employed by the government; it was illegal for gay people to congregate, and police brutality against gays went unchecked. Today, thanks to the events set in motion by the Stonewall riots, the gay rights movement continues to make incredible strides towards equality. In the past several weeks alone, the »

But we would argue that Marvel should be pleased with the performance of its latest film and be prepared for more relatively modest successes further down the line.
The trouble with Ant-Man
It's small wonder that there has been some surprise over Ant-Man's opening weekend Us gross of $57,225,526 (£36,807,903). The Edward Norton-starring, largely forgotten 2008 film Incredible Hulk (which took $55,414,050 / £35,645,019) was Marvel Studios' first official release, and since then their profile and success has been consistently on the rise.
Ant-Man was a challenge for Marvel, and the company didn't make it easy on itself. It wasn't the first release on the more obscure end of its catalogue, but 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy overcame scepticism with what was probably »
Last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past was a game-changer for the entire X-Men franchise, creating a new present-day timeline which included a resurrected Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) and a few other changes. The movie also created one of the most memorable superhero scenes in recent years, where Evan Peters' Quicksilver used his incredible super-speed at the Pentagon. While promoting his new indie film Safelight, Evan Peters teased that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, currently shooting in Montreal, has a "bigger and better" Quicksilver scene.
"Well, yeah, it's always difficult to try to top something like that. The special effects guys, man, they absolutely nailed that and did a fantastic job on it. This year we're working on something that's bigger and better, keeping the same elements that worked, then adding a few new ones. I'm really excited to see it all cut together, and I'm excited for people to see it, »
Because X-Men: Apocalypse is the final entry in the franchise.s "First Class" trilogy, this also means that the contracts for the trilogy.s main quartet of stars will expire. This includes Jennifer Lawrence, who has played the shapeshifting Mystique since 2011. Earlier this year, Lawrence implied that the 2016 blockbuster will be her final X-Men film, and while now she isn.t 100% certain about leaving anymore, she did give a reason for why she might not want to reprise Mystique: the makeup. Lawrence told EW that although she likes working on the films, she.s grown tired of the blue body paint she has to wear for Mystique.s natural form. Although she originally wasn.t bothered by the paint.s "fumes and toxins" when she signed onto X-Men: First Class, now she has a different perspective. According to Lawrence: Now I.m almost 25 and I.m like, .I can.t »
In a year which will see the release of some of the biggest comic book movies of all-time, X-Men: Apocalypse is going to have to do an awful lot to stand out from the crowd. While Bryan Singer has been teasing fans via his Instagram with bits of casting news and the odd behind the scenes photo, the only official piece of imagery released so far has been promo art of the titular villain during Comic-Con.
It was during that weekend that the trailer was leaked online by fans, and while some were shocked by the look of Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, the response has been overwhelmingly positive so far. Now then seems like the perfect time for Fox to pull back the curtain on Bryan Singer’s follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and they’ve done so by releasing a number of new images via Entertainment Weekly. »

Following yesterday’s first official images [see here and here], director Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to reveal that another familiar face will be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Josh Helman set to reprise his role as William Stryker from last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Singer announced the news with an image of Helman alongside X-Men: First Class star Rose Byrne, who is also back as Moira MacTaggert…

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 in the UK and May 27th, 2016 in the States.
