2 August 2015 3:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Bacon: "This is the only character I've played that I would like to see what happens to that guy, 25 years later".

Kevin Bacon was in Montreal on July 28th for the Canadian premiere of his latest movie, Cop Car, showcased during the Fantasia Film Festival. What's more, director Jon Watts and Kevin Bacon were on hand for a short Q&A after the movie.

While attendees asked Bacon a number of questions ranging from his experience on X-Men: First Class to the meaning of life, someone in the audience got down to brass tacks and asked the one question that’s on all horror movie fans’ mind: are there plans for a Tremors reunion sequel with the original cast?

Bacon offered the following comment as the only answer, which was met with tremendous applause: "I can’t address it directly, but I would say that this is the »

Respect for Tom Cruise

1 August 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matthew Lee on his respect for Tom Cruise

Since 2006, Tom Cruise has been reduced to, for lack of a better phrase, a global joke; a quick source for derision, slander, and mockery among the A-List Hollywood performers for the masses to prod at. There was his Jumping the Couch moment on Oprah, the uncomfortable Scientology interview, his termination with Paramount studios, and M:i:iii underperforming at the box office. In short, 2006 was not a good year for the iconic A-Lister.

Despite such set-backs Cruise still produces and stars in critically and financially successful movies, which proves his presence in Hollywood is unscathed. One needs only to look at 2011’s Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which would become Cruise’s highest grossing film to date, or the last few films that have received critical acclaim i.e. Edge of Tomorrow. Further, when one looks at Cruise’s career, one gets a sense that »

Robin Hood: Origins Eyes Taron Egerton, Others For Lead

31 July 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Will Robin Hood become the next box office superhero? The legendary outlaw of Sherwood Forest is at the heart of multiple competing blockbuster projects at the moment, and today brings word that Lionsgate is eyeing an assortment of red-hot young actors, including many British thesps, to possibly pick up a bow and arrow for its Robin Hood: Origins.

According to Deadline, the starry shortlist for the lead role is headed up by Taron Egerton, who broke big earlier this year in Kingsman: The Secret Service. If a Kingsman sequel gets the green-light, he could be out of the running, but as of now, Lionsgate is high on the newly christened Hollywood star.

The studio is also looking at Brits Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First ClassMad Max: Fury Road) and Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Irish-American actor Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) and American-born Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) for the part of Hood. »

Casting Roundup: ‘Htgawm’ Adds Famke Janssen, Archie Panjabi’s Post-‘Good Wife’ Gig

31 July 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A ‘X-Men’ favorite is heading to the courtroom on “How To Get Away With Murder,” plus another “X-Men” alum is “The Blacklist’s” new baddie. “The Good Wife’s” Archie Panjabi has booked her first TV role, after departing the CBS drama, and “Empire” is bringing a new pop singer into the studio in Friday’s casting roundup…

Famke Janssen has joined ABC’s “How To Get Away With Murder” second season in a multi-episode arc, Variety has confirmed.

Much like Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) secretive nature, the network is staying mum on the “X-Men’s” star’s character details, but TV Line reports Janssen (“Hemlock Grove,” “Taken”) will play a brilliant defense attorney who takes her job very seriously — sounds like Prof. Keating may be meeting her match this fall.

The Blacklist” has found its new villain in Edi Gathegi, who appeared in 2011’s “X-Men: First Class.” Exec producer John Eisendrath told TVGuide. »

Egerton, Hoult Wanted For "Robin Hood"

31 July 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With numerous Robin Hood-themed projects in the works, Lionsgate is looking to get ahead of its rivals and is moving fast on its "Batman Begins"-style take on the dashing Nottingham hero which is currently titled "Robin Hood: Origins".

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" star Taron Egerton heads up a shortlist that includes Dylan O'Brien ("The Maze Runner"), Nicholas Hoult ("X-Men: First Class"), Jack Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") and Jack Reynor ("Transformers: Age of Extinction") for the title role in this gritty, revisionist version of the Sherwood Forest outlaw which Joby Harold has penned.

Scheduling is said to be a major issue but reportedly Reynor had a successful session with director Otto Bathurst ("Peaky Blinders") and is said to have been the only actor of the bunch who has done such a meeting. No decisions have been made yet but filming is aiming to begin in the first quarter of next year. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photos Feature Mystique, Beast and Hovak

30 July 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Artists have given X-Men's Emma Frost real clothes in a new project

30 July 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Remember January Jones strutting around in her underwear in X-Men: First Class?

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' »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Shows Off Huge Egyptian Set

27 July 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Has A Lost, Angry Cyclops Says Tye Sheridan

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 »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Welcomes Patrick Stewart to Set

25 July 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

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.

Here's everything we know about X-Men: Apocalypse and Fox's other Marvel Comics movie 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".
