At one point in time, Terminator Genisys was shaping up to be one of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2015, but it never took off the way Paramount had hoped when it debuted in theaters this summer. The sci-fi action sequel opened over the 4th of July weekend in third place, behind holdovers Inside Out and Jurassic World. The film earned only $89.7 million at the domestic box office. But back in August, Terminator Genisys opened big in China, keeping hopes for a sequel alive. Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that, despite a solid showing in international territories, the previously-planned sequels are now on indefinite hold.
Despite earning just $89.7 million domestically, Terminator Genisys has performed well overseas, taking in $350.4 million internationally for a global box office total of $440.1 million. However, the movie, budgeted at $150 million, will still lose money for Paramount. The sequel did manage to pull in $112 million in China alone, »

An ancient mutant will attack the 1980s in 2016's new X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Here's our look ahead...
If the double-bill disappointment of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine couldn’t kill the X-Men franchise, nothing can. Now that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days Of Future Past have got the series back on track, there’s no stopping Fox’s mutant movies.
However, there’s one upcoming X-film that promises a bigger scale, a more dastardly villain and the biggest collection of dodgy haircuts than any of the rest. That film would be X-Men: Apocalypse.
This one’s the next team-based instalment, and it will focus on the recast protagonists introduced in First Class, picking up after their adventure in Days Of Future Past. »

X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn will helm a spy flick that sadly isn’t Kingsman 2. Now don’t worry, that doesn’t mean he isn’t doing the sequel, it just means I am Pilgrim is his next project and Kingsman 2 might follow after (or so I hope). I am Pilgrim […]
Read Spy Thriller I am Pilgrim is Matthew Vaughn’s Next Project on Filmonic.
Fresh off Kingsman: The Secret Service, it seems Matthew Vaughn will be staying in the spy genre for a bit longer with his next film. No, not Kingsman: The Secret Service 2 (that’s still coming, don’t worry), but I Am Pilgrim, an adaption of the 2014 best selling debut novel from The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Dead Calm, and Payback screenwriter Terry Hayes (you can listen to our interview with Hayes about the book here). Following a veteran spy, codenamed Pilgrim, called out of retirement to tackle a cunning terrorist, production is slated to begin next year. I Am Pilgrim will see Hayes on screen writing duties, and with him currently working on a follow-up novel, we could see be seeing the beginnings of a new franchise. And there’s no better person than Vaughn to potentially kick it off. Of the five movies he has directed, three »

There will be Spoilers for Kingsman: The Secret Service below, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, read on at your own risk. Although it opened on the same weekend as box office juggernaut Fifty Shades of Grey, 20th Century Fox's action-thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service still held its own, pulling in $128.2 million domestic and $412.1 million worldwide during its impressive theatrical run. The studio gave the green light for a follow-up, Kingsman 2, back in April, with director Matthew Vaughn and writer Jane Goldman currently working on the sequel script.
While discussing the sequel with IGN, Mark Millar, who created the comic book the adaptation is based on, revealed that the filmmakers are trying to find a way to bring Colin Firth back as Harry Hart. Of course, Harry died in a memorable scene towards the end of Kingsman: The Secret Service, but that still isn't stopping the filmmakers »
During a conversation with comic book writer Mark Millar, IGN got the chance to ask a couple of questions about the upcoming sequel to director Matthew Vaughn’s spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service – and specifically, the return of Colin Firth’s Galahad. Warning: spoilers for the first movie follow…
“That’s the conversation everyone’s having right now, because part of what made that movie work is Colin,” said Millar, when asked how Galahad can return given his death in the first movie. “Colin’s fantastic, it was a two-hander, that film. You also want to have the integrity of the story, so if you are bringing him back, it has to make sense. That’s where it is at at the moment. Beats of the story have been done. [Screenplay co-writers] Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman are working on it at the moment. Some things have to be worked out, »

Hugh Jackman made waves on the Internet yesterday when he mentioned Tom Hardy as a possible replacement for indestructible mutant Logan after Hugh's done with the character following Wolverine 3. As everyone knows by now, Wolverine 3 will be the final time Hugh Jackman dons the claws for 20th Century Fox and their X-Men franchise. Fans have continuously speculated about who may be called in to assume the position after 2017. And some even believe Fox may have a contender waiting in the wings. Fan art maestro BossLogic has taken it upon himself to show the word exactly what Tom Hardy would look like suited up in the inevitable reboot. The results are pretty impressive.
A lot of fans believe that Hugh Jackman is irreplaceable as Wolverine. But that has never stopped Hollywood from rebooting one of its more popular characters. No one can escape the reboot machine, not even Han Solo, who »
While some fans may not be ready to admit it to themselves yet, Hugh Jackman will be delivering his last performance as the beloved mutant Logan in 20th Century Fox's Wolverine 3, which has been set for release on March 3, 2017. It has been rumored that Wolverine 3 will essentially close out the entire X-Men franchise, following Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. Still, even if this rumor is true, 20th Century Fox will surely continue the franchise in some fashion, leading many fans to wonder who may replace Hugh Jackman as Logan. While promoting his new movie Pan, in theaters October 9, Hugh Jackman offered his choice for who he'd like to take over as Wolverine, during an interview with MTV.
