Final trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we brought you a batch of promotional images showing the vehicles set to feature in George Miller’s long-awaited post-apocalyptic actioner Mad Max: Fury Road [see here], and with less than three weeks to go until the film arrives in cinemas we’ve now got one final trailer, which caps off what has been an absolutely superb marketing campaign. 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 »

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Set Photos Reveal Jean Grey, Jubilee, Cyclops & Nightcrawler

13 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bryan Singer’s X-men: Apocalypse officially started shooting in Montreal, Canada just yesterday with a set dressed up to look like a shopping mall in 1983 – it even had a cinema billing Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi, which Singer proudly stood in front of for a quick Twitter selfie.

Overnight some images have appeared from the set which feature Tye Sheridan as the young Cyclops and Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner as a red-haired Jean Grey. There’s also a very teeny look at Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Nightcrawler (complete with a retro red leather jacket reminiscent of the one that Michael Jackson wore in his ground-breaking Thriller video – which was also released in 1983).

The images were tweeted by a variety of sources, and while not that clear, do give us a look at what the filmmakers are going after in terms of the 80s nostalgia factor – just »

First Look At Kodi Smit-McPhee As NightCrawler In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

27 April 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

X-men: Apolocalypse official started shooting today over in Canada and the first day has already has some news worthy tidbits beamed from the set. The first is this first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road, Slow West, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) as the character of Nightcrawler (originally played in X2 by Alan Cumming).

Check him out.

Nightcrawler is originally stated to be from a small village called Witzeldorf in the German state of Bavaria. In the X-Men animated series, it is said to be Neuherzl,[2] and in the film X2, he makes repeated references to his time in the Munich circus, though it is never explicitly specified from where he originated. [WikiPedia]

X-men: Apocalypse is said to round out the X-Men ‘prequel’ movies which started with the rather good X-men: First Class and last year’s equally good X-men: Days Of Future Past.

The new movie will be set in the 1980s, »

First look at X-Men Apocalypse's new Nightcrawler Kodi Smit-McPhee

27 April 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A first look at X-Men: Apocalypse's latest blue-skinned mutant Nightcrawler has teleported in... and vanished.

X-Men director Bryan Singer teased the character with an Instagram video, posting: "First day on set! Here is @KodiSmitMcpheee as #Nightcrawler. Catch him before he's gone."

The video was subsequently removed, as were similar social posts via the X-Men Facebook and Twitter feeds, in a move that mimics Nightcrawler's teleportation powers.

However, quick-thinking fans were able to grab images of the new-look Nightcrawler before they were all removed from the social feeds.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Kodi Smit-McPhee is taking on the role of Nightcrawler after Alan Cumming played the character in X2.

In the original Marvel comics, Nightcrawler (aka Kurt Wagner) is the son of Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique and demonic warlord Azazel. The latter was played by Jason Flemyng in X-Men: First Class, but the character didn't feature »

First Picture of the New Nightcrawler from 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

27 April 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Kodi Smit-McPhee is taking on the role of the teleporting mutant, Nightcrawler, in X-Men: Apocalypse, filling shoes once occupied by Alan Cumming who played the character in one of the most memorable X-Men scenes to date, that being the opening sequence in X2: X-Men United. After director Bryan Singer attempted to one-up that sequence with Quicksilver's scene in X-Men: First Class it sort of makes you wonder what he'll have in store this time around. Just above is a screen capture from the following video tease of the character (via Twitter) and below that you have a shot from producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg, tweeting a photo from the film's set in Vancouver, letting us know the film will be set in 1983. https://twitter.com/Kinberg/status/592674867583045633 »

X-men: Apocalypse: First Look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

27 April 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Today is Monday, which is unfortunate. However, director Bryan Singer feels your pain, so he’s chosen today to unveil the very first look at a new mutant from X-Men: Apocalypse. Production on the Days of Future Past follow-up begins today, and to mark the occasion, Singer has revealed the concept design for the film’s Nightcrawler, who will be played by Let Me In and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor Kodi Smit-McPhee. It’s an admittedly brief and early look at the character, but this is the first time the "prequel franchise" has tackled a younger iteration of a mutant from Singer's original X-Men films since the initial casting of X-Men: First Class (or, to a lesser extent, the Toad cameo in Dofp). Since it appears to be a concept image and not Smit-McPhee in actual makeup, it’s tough to spot any significant differences from »

See The New Nightcrawler From The Set Of X-Men: Apocalypse

27 April 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bryan Singer loves to share. Most of the major casting news on his X-Men films breaks on the director.s social media channels. He knows how to excite fans, but also frustrate them. Early this morning, both Singer and Kodi Smit-McPhee shared looks at young Nightcrawler from X-Men: Apocalypse. But shortly after posting, both images disappeared. Thankfully, EW worked quick, posting a brighter version, showing more detail. X-Men: Apocalypse will continue the X-Men saga in the years following the massively successful X-Men: Days of Future Past. Bryan Singer is staying with the franchise, and will transition it from the 1970s to the 1980s. (As you.ll recall, this whole timeline reboot really got underway with X-Men: First Class, set in the 1960s.) The decade shift allows Singer the unusual opportunity to reintroduce younger versions of classic heroes he dabbled with in his first X-Men movies. For example, Kodi Smit-McPhee (The »

Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

25 April 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

Suit Up for Kingsman: The Secret Service Blu-Ray in June

21 April 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Easily one of the best films of the year so far, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is coming to blu-ray in just a couple months and Fox has revealed all the special features you can expect upon its release.  Come inside for all the details!

When I first saw Kingsman in theaters, I called it "the first genuine must-see movie of the year" and my opinion on that hasn't changed in the least.  It's an incredible film that manages to hit all the right notes.  If you missed it in theaters (for shame), or simply can't wait to see it again, Fox has revealed the details on the upcoming blu-ray release on June 9th-or digitally on May 15th.  

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites you to join Kingsman: The Secret Service when it hits Digital HD™ May 15 and Blu-ray™ and DVD June 9. Matthew Vaughn, director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class »

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Will the newly discovered ‘Wrinkle in Time’ pages influence the Disney film?

20 April 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A never-before-seen passage from “A Wrinkle in Time” has hit the web. For those eagerly (or hesitantly) anticipating the Disney movie adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved sci-fi/fantasy book, the question arises, Could these newly discovered pages influence the direction of the film? “A Wrinkle in Time” — which would be likely classified as Ya today, though L’Engle once said her books were for people, not just children — follows 13-year-old Meg Murray and her wunderkind five-year-old brother Charles Wallace as they traverse between planets to find their missing scientist father. Jennifer Lee, who co-directed “Frozen,” is set to pen the script for Disney’s upcoming big screen take on the book. Last week, The Wall Street Journal posted the cut passage, three typewriter-composed pages discovered by L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis. In these pages, which you can read here, Meg asks her father how the Black Thing (pure evil Mr. »

Later this month, production will begin in Montreal on the highly-anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse, which will be the last installment of the new trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. We know the story is set in the 1980s, but very few plot details have been confirmed at this point. The movie, set for release on May 27, 2016, will also be bookended by two new movies that take place within the X-Men cinematic universe, Deadpool (February 12, 2016) and Gambit (October 7, 2016). Writer/producer Simon Kinberg revealed some new details about the upcoming installments.

"That has the same kind of integration. It's a smaller group. All of the films are aware of each other. I know what's happening in each story, of each of the movies and they certainly acknowledge each other. Things that happen in one film are acknowledged by the other movies.

X-men: Apocalypse Adds Lucas Till; Independence Day 2 Brings Back Bill Pullman

17 April 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right? Regardless, not only did Roland Emmerich announce Pullman’s return, but he also revealed that Judd Hirsch will be back as well. Hirsch played David’s (Jeff Goldblum) father Julius Levinson in the original. So now the list of returning cast members includes Pullman, Hirsch, Goldblum, Brent Spiner as Dr. Brackish Okun, the kooky scientist at Area 51, and Vivica A. Fox as Captain Steven Hiller’s (Will Smith) wife, Jasmine Dubrow. As for the newcomers, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth as President Whitmore’s son-in-law, Jessie Usher as Steven Hiller’s son (presumably an older Dylan Dubrow), Travis Tope as a character named Charlie, and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Joey King in unknown roles. »
