'X-Men: Apocalypse': New Jean Grey Will Emulate Famke Janssen

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The cast for X-Men: Apocalypse just got bigger last week, with the additions of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp as Storm, alongside Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse. There is still very little we know about the story, except that it is set in the 1980s and will bring an end to the trilogy started by X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Access Hollywood caught up with Sophie Turner, who revealed how she learned that she won the role as Jean Grey, although it seems to have cost her a different, unspecified gig.

"I was getting out of the car to walk in to the audition. And then my agent started ringing and she was like 'Have you heard the news?' 'No, what news?' Then she was like 'Check your Twitter'. So then I checked it »

Kingsman: The Secret Service review

20 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A Colin Firth action sequence, a Mark Hamill cameo and a lisping Samuel L. Jackson. What's not to love?

Some people sit back and complain about the state of comic book movies, and then carry on making films in the same vein. For the third time in his career, director Matthew Vaughn has actively gone out of his way to do something about it.

The first such occasion was the commendably Daily Mail-baiting Kick-Ass, a film that beneath its energy, ideas, music and fruity language had real substance to it, and plenty of rewatch value. Oh, and an 18 certificate. I fondly remember such things.

Then his X-Men film, X-Men: First Class, put character firmly at the fore, at least until the special effects moved in for a large chunk of the final act. In both cases, there was a real sense that Vaughn had taken the films on because there »

Matthew Vaughn interview: Kingsman, X-Men, Stardust 2, 007

25 January 2015 11:47 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Kingsman, the moment he was set to direct Casino Royale, to the lost Stardust 2, here's our chat with director Matthew Vaughn...

It's no secret that Matthew Vaughn was, under the original plan, going to move on to X-Men: Days Of Future Past after his success with X-Men: First Class. But instead, the director of Kick-Ass, Stardust and Layer Cake opted for Kingsman: The Secret Service instead.

In a chat ahead of the release of the new film, he tells us about why, about queuing up for effects shots, and the Stardust sequel that never was...

When I saw the film you came in and did a brief introduction. You described it then as the film you're most proud of doing to date. But why? Given some of the films you've made in the past, what made this one so special to you?

Because it was a culmination of everything »

X-Men: Apocalypse – Everything You Need To Know

23 January 2015 11:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Instagram

It seemed like the X-Men had narrowly avoided a dystopian future thanks to all the time travel hoo-ha of Days Of Future Past. Turns out, they just put themselves on a path to Apocalypse. The character Apocalypse, that is. Who’s whole bag is bringing about the actual apocalypse. So yeah, things still look pretty dire.

After rescuing what looked like a flagging series off the back of the Brett Ratner-directed third film and a couple of bad Wolverine spin-offs, Days Of Future Past picked up where superior prequel X-Men: First Class left off, and did a damn fine job of it. The box office returns were pretty impressive and all.

Which is why Fox wasted no time in greenlighting a sequel, due for release in 2016. Such is the nature of modern blockbusters, though – and especially ones based off of existing comics – that even with that date still a year off, »

Movie Review – Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

23 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

Starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Tom Prior and Jack Davenport

Synopsis:

A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

Marking the second time Matthew Vaughn has directed a comic book created by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service is a ridiculously fun movie with a wonderful sense of comic violence and a sweet heart. It’s a film that never takes itself too seriously, but treats its subject matter with respect to ensure the best cinematic experience. It may have some flaws, but there is so much to love about Kingsman: The Secret Service that they can be overlooked. Or shot at.

Matthew Vaughn left X-Men: Days of Future Past to direct Kingsman: The Secret Service based on a script he wrote with writing partner Jane Goldman »

New UK trailer for Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill

23 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer has been released for Andrew Niccol’s drone-pilot drama Good Kill starring Ethan Hawke, and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

Good Kill tells the story of a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Ethan Hawke), who fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, then goes home to his wife (January Jones) and kids in the suburbs for the other half. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end?

Good Kill reunites Niccol with his Gattaca and Lord of War star Ethan Hawke, who portrays a drone pilot operating out of Las Vegas who begins to question the value of fighting in such a disconnected war. The rest of the cast includes X-Men: First Class stars January Jones and Zoe Kravitz alongside »

23 January 2015 12:34 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With cameras expected to start rolling in April, Bryan Singer has revealed, via Twitter, that three new faces, playing some very familiar characters, will be joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, said to cap off the trilogy began with X-Men: First Class, and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past. Alexandria Shipp (best known for playing Alliyah in a recent made for t.v. biopic of the R&B star), Tye Sheridan (Mud, The Tree of Life, and Joe), and Sophie Turner (who will know as Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones) will be playing young Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey respectively, as the sequel travels to the 80's to explore the new timeline brought on by the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Casts Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm!

22 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The casting search for younger mutants in X-Men: Apocalypse is over, with director Bryan Singer announcing on his Twitter page that Sophie Turner will play Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan is starring as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp will take on Storm. All three actors were mentioned as contenders for their respective roles in a report earlier this month. Saoirse Ronan was also up for Jean Grey, with Zendaya Coleman up for Storm and Taron Egerton and Jamie Blackley in contention for Cyclops. Oddly enough, Taron Egerton definitively stated yesterday that he was not playing Cyclops, and now we know why.

Producer Simon Kinberg confirmed in Septemeber that X-Men: Apocalypse will feature younger versions of Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm, since the story is set in the 1980s. Very little is known about the story, except that it ends the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. »

Watch as Kingsman: The Secret Service's Colin Firth turns a street kid into a spy

22 January 2015 1:18 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

A working class street kid becomes the new modern gentlemen spy courtesy of Colin Firth in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

This new behind-the-scenes look at the film gives us insight into the super-secret underground British society of spies, known as The Kingsmen.  Veteran secret agent Harry Hart (Firth) takes up the challenge of converting the young troublemaker Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) to an elite and dapper secret agent under his tutelage.   

Directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class), Eggsy faces some pretty intense challenges as part of his training including the predicament of what exactly a Kingsman member is to do when one of their group finds himself plummeting through the air without a parachute. 

There’s some tongue-in-cheek humour on display in this featurette.  After all, it’s not every day you hear a suave spy reference classic make-over movies of the 1980s and 1990s!

Matthew Vaughn suggests Guardians of the Galaxy deserves award recognition, clarifies recent Dark Knight Trilogy comments

22 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a recent interview for HeyUGuys Matthew Vaughn put forward the argument that superhero films are largely underappreciated in the world of cinematic award ceremonies, in particular Guardians of the Galaxy.

He suggests that the Marvel Studios film was a bigger challenge to create than a number of other films “where you just plonk a camera here and there and have a good actor”.

Vaughn also went on to comment on remarks he made about Christopher Nolan’s dark style of superhero film, which he says were taken out of context by the internet.

“What I said is Nolan is very good at doing what he did with Batman, and the subject matter of Batman deserved to be dark, but there are other superheroes, like I don’t think Superman should be dark. The clue’s in the costume, what it should be like…You have to always respect source material, »

Kick-Ass scribe Jane Goldman to adapt DC/Vertigo comic Fables for Warner Bros.

21 January 2015 4:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An adaptation of Bill Willingham’s popular Fables comic book series has been in the works for quite some time now, but never really gained traction. Today, however, the film’s producer offered up an intriguing and encouraging update.

We learned back in June of 2013 that A Royal Affair helmer Nikolaj Arcel (who was once on the shortlist for Marvel’s Doctor Strange) would be bringing the DC/Vertigo comic to the big screen, and according to producer David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter), that’s still very much the case. On top of that, the movie now has a new screenwriter, in the form of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class scribe Jane Goldman.

Heyman dropped the news in a recent interview with Cbr:

Jane Goldman is working on a draft as we speak. Nik Arcel is attached [to direct]. He did a draft, and now he’s supervising Jane, who’s doing a draft. »

A much younger version of Apocalypse was teased during the end credit sequence for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Oscar Isaac will be tasked with bringing a more powerful, older villain to life in next year's superhero sequel. While he wouldn't shed too much light on the character, he did reveal one of his powers, while doing press for A Most Violent Year. Take a look at what he had to say below.

"...One of his major powers is being able to change all the molecules in his body. So I'll be changing all the molecules in my body. It's gonna be a lot of fun."
