Splinter Cell movie to begin production early next year

21 November 2014 10:03 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hidden within an interview with Collider about John Wick were some comments by producer Basil Ilwanyk (The Town, The Expendables) about the upcoming Splinter Cell adaptation from Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. The film has been in the works for quite some time now, and stars Tom Hardy in the lead role of badass Navy Seal operative Sam Fisher.

The film currently lacks a release date, but Ilwanyk gave a brief production update that points toward a production start date early next year:

Splinter Cell will go some time next year, that’s Doug Liman and Tom Hardy. We’re getting the script right because if you have Doug Liman and Tom Hardy you want to make it great. It’s very, very active. We’re going to make it. Tom and Doug are going to make it when it’s perfect and we’re getting there. It’s »

Mystique Is Hiding in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Says Jennifer Lawrence

20 November 2014 9:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is little we know about 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse, except that it will close out the trilogy featuring the younger characters from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and that it will be set in the 1980s. While promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Jennifer Lawrence revealed in an interview with IGN that her character Mystique should be in hiding, following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

"She's very complex. She's a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to her opposite race. I don't really know where she's going to go. I've had a few conversations about where we'll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere."

We also reported last week that the sequel will focus on Mystique's relationship with Michael Fassbender's Magneto, while also addressing her burgeoning romance with Beast »

Vaughn Reveals Why He Left 'X-Men' To Do 'Kingsman'

20 November 2014 8:22 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When X-Men: First Class came out, it did a lot of reignite the appetite of the franchise's fans. After X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, people had started to lose faith in the series. When Matthew Vaughn stepped in to direct, with Bryan Singer serving as a "Godfather" producer returning to the series he helped launch, there was a spark of promise for the fans. That promise lead to a film that was very well-received and, effectively, revived the cinematic X-Men. 

Considering First Class was a soft reboot, many expected Vaughn to direct its follow-up to continue to move the pieces in a new direction. That was the plan. He was preparing for X-Men: Days of Future Past when, suddenly, news broke that he had stepped away from the project. Why the change of heart? Why step away from a film that was sure to be huge?

Matthew Vaughn Talks More About Why He Didn't Helm X-men: Days Of Future Past

20 November 2014 4:56 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

X-Men: First Class is viewed by many as the best X-Men movie to date despite some major changes to the source material. Michael Fassbender's performance, a version of the classic yellow and blue costumes, and the compelling story really help it stand out from past instalments, so the news that Matthew Vaughn wouldn't be back to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past was obviously met with a great deal of disappointment from moviegoers and fans alike. Of course, Bryan Singer would return and gave us an equally good outing for the X-Men, but why did Vaughn decide not to come back for the "inbetweenquel" by instead deciding to focus on Kingsman: The Secret Service?  "It started in a pub with Mark, and we were drunk," Vaughn revealed in an interview with IGN Movies, referring to The Secret Service's comic book writer, Mark Millar (who created the series alongside »

Spotlight on the Stars: Jennifer Lawrence

19 November 2014 3:51 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s new spotlight piece, I wanted to again take a look at one of the biggest A listers in the industry…Jennifer Lawrence. I’ve written about her once or twice before, but as a legitimate megastar who’s also still a bit of an up and comer, I figured she was perfect for this piece once again. She’s someone who’s powerful in Hollywood, grounded in a way that most young stars aren’t, and above all else…one of the best actresses in the business, bar none, with an Oscar on her mantle to prove it. Lawrence consistently does interesting work and is more than worth checking in on here and there. As such, she’s perfect for the spotlight today, so let us dive in. Lawrence first got her start, like many young up and comers, on television. Guest spots on Cold Case, »

New X-Men: Apocalypse casting rumours

18 November 2014 10:55 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld and Peter Beale from EastEnders are all on the X-Men: Apocalypse shortlist, it seems

Bryan Singer is homing in on new additions to the X-Men cast for his upcoming movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. The film will centre on the X-Men: First Class cast (and pick things up after X-Men: Days Of Future Past), but it'll also be introducing younger versions of characters we've already seen in previous X-Men adventures. As such, the search is on for acting talent to play the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

So who's on the short list?

For Jean Grey, The Wrap is reporting that Elle Fanning (last seen in Maleficent), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) are on the shortlist. Meanwhile, the younger Cyclops could be taking the form of Ben Hardy (Peter Beale in EastEnders, no less), Charlie Rowe (Walking With Dinosaurs) and »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Eyes Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning for Jean Grey

18 November 2014 5:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, we reported that 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero adventure X-Men: Apocalypse will re-cast iconic characters such as Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops, which makes sense since we reported in March that the sequel will be set in the 1980s. Today, The Wrap is reporting that Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are in contention to play Jean Grey, with Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timoth&#233e Chalamet being eyed for Cyclops.

Insiders claim that both Chloe Moretz and Elle Fanning have met with director Bryan Singer to discuss the role over the past few weeks, but it isn't clear if there is a front runner among the trio, and the site also mentions that Elle Fanning may not even be interested in the role. Sources claim that official test offers have not been made to any actress yet, and several others still remain in the mix. »

X-Men: Apocalypse Shortlists For Cyclops And Jean Grey Emerge

18 November 2014 4:56 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though much of the cast from both X-Men: First Class and Days of Future Past will return for 2016’s trilogy capper X-Men: Apocalypse, there are several major roles that will be filled by franchise newcomers, namely those of present-day X-Men team leaders Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops, and Jean Grey. Though James Marsden and Famke Janssen play Cyclops and Jean in the first few X-Men films, younger actors will take their place in Apocalypse, as it takes place in the 1980s, which is twenty or so years before the events of the first X-Men movie.

Thanks to TheWrap, we now have a new shortlist of actors for both Cyclops and Jean Grey, and they give us a good idea of how director Bryan Singer will cast the parts this time around. Three actors have been named as contenders for each role: Kick-Ass and Carrie star Chloe Grace MoretzMaleficent »

X-men: Apocalypse Looking at Actors for Young Jean Grey and Cyclops Roles; Chloe Grace Moretz and Elle Fanning in the Mix

18 November 2014 4:31 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We kind of knew this was coming, but it looks like we now have confirmation that the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse will introduce young versions of even more mutants from the original X-Men series.  Matthew Vaughn’s 2011 film X-Men: First Class successfully rebooted the franchise with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence playing 1970s versions of Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, respectively, and then Bryan Singer’s time-twisting follow-up Days of Future Past brought both casts together in a compelling and fun sequel.  However, Apocalypse moves away from the time travel aspect of Dofp and into the 1980s, so with Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, etc. back out of the picture, Singer and Co. are looking to fill in the gaps with younger versions of some more mutants. Which mutants, you may ask?  Well a new report unveils a list of actors that are »

X-Men: Apocalypse eyeing these young actors to play Jean Grey and Cyclops

18 November 2014 12:52 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It was inevitable that X-men: Apocalypse would introduce more young versions of some of our favorite mutants from the X-Men series. In X-men: First Class we were introduced to the young 1970s Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique played by James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence. Now as we move into the 1980s for Apocalypse we are getting more information as to which roles some actors are being eyed to play, namely a young Jean Grey and a young Cyclops.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' To Focus On Romance Between Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique & Michael Fassbender's Magneto

14 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fox's casting directors certainly had an idea of what they were getting into when they cast a post-"Winter's Bone" Jennifer Lawrence in "X-Men: First Class," but even they probably couldn't have anticipated that the young actress playing Mystique in their superhero reboot would explode to become one of the biggest and best-liked stars around, and an Oscar-winner to boot. That's why you lock people into multi-film contracts, kids. It's no surprise that Lawrence has become increasingly crucial to the franchise, with a bumped-up role in this year's big hit "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," and talks of getting her own spin-off, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, looks to be front-and-center of the next movie in the series. "X-Men: Apocalypse" is gearing up to shoot next April, and according to the trade, the script is being "crafted around" Lawrence's Mystique and Michael Fassbender's Magneto, with their characters' romance being a. »

First Reactions To Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service

13 November 2014 6:13 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

20th Century Fox has begun screening Matthew Vaughn's ("X-Men: First Class") latest comic book movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and some of the lucky few have tweeted their initial reactions. The majority of the comments sound quite promising, if you love films that take full advantage of their R-ratings, which I do. I'm just so tired of films that play it safe, trying to garner that coveted PG-13 rating. I understand the benefits of PG-13 at the box office, as more people can go and view the film, but films were intended to entertain people not dance for the MPAA. So, when I see genuinely positive comments describing Kingsman as "jaw-droppingly violent" and "utterly demented" I get excited, and so should you. My favorite comment comes from Empire's Nick de Semlyen, who said, "Kingsman is to Bond what Kick-Ass was to Spider-Man." Sounds good to me. #Kingsman: by no means perfect, »

DVD Review: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

13 November 2014 12:05 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Bryan Singer’s freshest contribution to the X-Men canon proves to be his most ambitious and complicated to date. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) brings together the stellar ensembles of both X-Men (2000) and X-Men: First Class (2011) for a film that completely rewrites the direction of the franchise. In their latest outing, we discover that the X-Men are engaged in a battle for their lives against sentient machines known as 'Sentinels', the creation of Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). Believing that mutants will evolve to erase their less-developed counterparts, Trask intends to protect the rest of humanity by beating the mutants at their own game.

X-Men: Apocalypse May Have These Two Mutants Fall In Love

12 November 2014 11:09 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The X-Men films have played around with Magneto and Mystique.s relationship a lot during the past 14 years. In the first three films they were close partners in the fight against humankind until Mystique lost her powers. In X-Men: First Class, Magneto taught Mystique a different mindset of how to view her mutation. In X-Men: Days of Future Past, the two of them found themselves as adversaries, although their endgames were remarkably similar. However, there.s one aspect of their chemistry that has yet to be fully delved into: love. Fortunately, the "will they/won.t they?" plot will be resolved soon...maybe. According to THR, X-Men: Apocalypse will place the Magneto and Mystique romance "front and center." This is primarily being done to take advantage of Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence.s star power. Since First Class was released in 2011, both of their careers have skyrocketed, with Lawrence starring »
