January Jones' take on Emma Frost in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class received something of a mixed response despite her stellar work in Man Men. Following rumours that she fell pregnant after an affair with a possibly married co-worker on the set of Fox's Marvel movie, no one realy expected to see her return for X-Men: Days of Future Past anyway. She didn't, and hasn't been mentioned as being considered for X-Men: Apocalypse either. However, those of you who enjoyed Jones' take on Emma Frost will surely enjoy these far from frosty images of the stunning actress. »
With cameras set to begin rolling in April, there's been quite a bit of casting news doing the rounds in the last few weeks for X-Men: Apocalypse, and now director Bryan Singer has announced another addition to his latest foray into the X-Men universe, with newcomer Lana Condor taking on the role of Jubilee. Best known as prominent member of the 90's X-Men cartoon, the mutant, whose power is to create and control energy plasmoids which look like fireworks, has been part of the X-Men universe since her creation in 1989, and has previously appeared in the original X-Men movies, played by Katrina Florence in the first X-Men, and by Kea Wong in X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. Jubilee will be rejoining fellow recast mutants Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) for what is said to be the conclusion to the trilogy to X-Men: First Class, »

Though she currently has no credits on her IMDb page at this time, Lana Condor's first entry will be huge! The virtually unknown actress has landed a prime role in X-Men: Apocalypse. She will play one of the youngest team members to ever fight alongside Professor Xavier and his school of extraordinary students. That's right, Lana Condor is taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee.
While X-Men: Apocalypse is confirmed to take place in the 80s, Jubilee didn't become popular in the comic books until the early 1990s, often playing sidekick to Wolverine. She was first introduced in Uncanny X-Men #244, which was published in 1989. Created by iconic X-men writer Chris Claremont and artist Marc Silvestri, the character's mutation allows her to create and control energy plasmodia that are similar to fireworks. The actress has appeared in the movies before, first in 2000's X-Men played by Katrina Florence and »
While the X-Men franchise may be due for a cast changeover in the near future, director Bryan Singer is ensuring that the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, is stacked with fan favorites. Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult are due to reprise their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Apocalypse marks the third and final film for which they’re under contract, so they have the ability to depart the franchise after this movie if they wish. Indeed, Lawrence recently revealed that Apocalypse will be her final X-Men movie, but the ensemble is also being filled out by younger versions of plenty of new mutants. The latest addition is actress Lana Condor, who Singer revealed on Instagram will be playing the character Jubilation Lee—aka Jubilee. She joins previously announced new additions Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm »

Roland Emmerich is entering the awards season fray once more. The filmmaker behind such blockbusters as "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Independence Day" attempted to make a smaller, more serious film with 2011's "Anonymous." That Shakespearean era tale was touted as a possible awards player before it debuted at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to mostly negative reviews. Any hopes for prestige recognition were quickly dashed. Now, after segueing into more familiar territory with "White House Down," Emmerich is returning with a slightly more personal tale, "Stonewall." Roadside Attractions announced today it had acquired the period drama for a release later this Fall (which pretty much means at least a Toronto debut). "Stonewall" is a fictional drama set around the real events that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City during 1969. The Stonewall Riots found the gay community fighting back in a series of violent protests after »

While there's still much we don't know about X-Men: Apocalypse, it has been confirmed that the story will be set in the 1980s and it will round out the trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story is said to focus primarily on the younger mutants from those aforementioned movies, but a new rumor surfaced today that reveals X-Men: Apocalypse will also feature two cameos from fan-favorite X-Men characters, along with the introduction of a new mutant. There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk. If you are not averse to spoilers, take a look at what Latino Review's El Mayimbe has to say, which includes the production start date for X-Men: Apocalypse.
Jennifer Lawrence only plans to strip down and suit up as shape-shifting mutant Mystique one more time for “X-Men: Apocalypse.” “It is my last one, actually,” Lawrence told MTV News during an interview alongside Bradley Cooper at the red carpet premiere of “Serena.” The 2016 release will be Lawrence’s third appearance in the franchise after starring in “X-Men: First Class” and “Days of Future Past,” which grossed over $748 million worldwide.

Since she was cast in the role of Mystique for Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, it would be fair to say that Jennifer Lawrence's career has taken off somewhat. She has an Oscar on her mantelpiece for Silver Linings Playbook, and she's become one of the biggest movie stars in the world, courtesy of The Hunger Games series.
She returns for the third time to play Mystique in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, which starts shooting shortly. And whilst many of her colleagues in the cast have held the door open to keep on going in the X-Men world, it sounds as though Jennifer Lawrence may be calling time on her X-Men days.
In a chat with MTV, Lawrence was asked if she thought X-Men: Apocalypse »
When an actor or an actress signs on for a comic book movie, most contracts are written to include options for two further movies (seven or eight when it comes to a Marvel Studios film). That's exactly what happened with Jennifer Lawrence and X-Men: First Class which came out just as the actress started her journey to become one of the most successful actresses working in the industry right now. Next year's X-Men: Apocalypse will mark her third, and final, appearance as shape shifting mutant Mystique, telling MTV News in no uncertain terms "It is my last one, actually". This doesn't come as much of a surprise actually. The Hunger Games comes to an end later this year, and that coupled with her X-Men contract running out would free her up when it comes to choosing projects, and no doubt, the idea of not being tied to a franchise is an appealing one. »

Jennifer Lawrence has stated that "X-Men: Apocalypse," which comes out May 27, 2016, will mark her last outing as Mystique, the comely blue mutant of the saga. There's no telling who will play Mystique going forward, but the title "Apocalypse" makes you wonder just how many X-Men will survive the movie anyway. Lawrence has a bunch of other high-profile projects coming up, including "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II," "Joy," a David O. Russell-directed biopic of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano, and "The Dive," a James Cameron-directed biopic of Audrey Mestre, who died attempting to break her own single-breath diving record. Maybe all that blue makeup seems like too much trouble when you can just make more Oscar season movies with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. Interestingly, all of the "X-Men: First Class" actors are contractually finished after "Apocalypse," including Lawrence's boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. It's time for renegotiations, »

“It is my last one,” Lawrence said when asked if it would be her final X-men film. (She drops the bomb around the 3:25 mark.)
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will also star series regulars including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne, plus Oscar Isaac and Kodi Smit-McPhee, both new to the franchise. Sir Ian McKellan or Patrick Stewart will not be returning, however. Bryan Singer will direct.

Last week, it was reported that X-Men: Apocalypse will most likely mark Nicholas Hoult's final performance as Beast for the franchise. Now, in a new interview with MTV, co-star Jennifer Lawrence is stating the same thing. Though, where Nicholas Hoult claimed he'd return if asked, Jennifer Lawrence seems pretty confident that this latest franchise sequel will mark her last appearance as shape shifter Mystique. When asks if she is done after her third go at the character, she quite simply states:
"It is my last one. Yes."
Bryan Singer is set to return for X-Men: Apocalypse, which is confirmed to take place in the 80s. While no other story details have been released, it has long been confirmed that the movie will serve as the end of a trilogy which began with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While it is pretty »
The X-Men movies' Mystique might need to change her appearance for good in future movies. Jennifer Lawrence, who has played the character since 2011's X-Men: First Class, said in an MTV interview that she'll be done with the role following next year's X-Men: Apocalypse. Asked by MTV about whether Apocalypse would mark a final appearance for Lawrence as the blue-skinned mutant, she said emphatically, "It is my last one, yes." (Fox declined to comment on the subject when contacted by THR.) This makes Lawrence the second X-Men cast member to suggest that Apocalypse

While we know the contracts of the cast of "X-Men: First Class" expire with "X-Men: Apocalypse," there's always been the hope that they might sign on for additional entries. Last week Nicholas Hoult suggested that he'd be potentially open to returning.
The same can't be said for his co-star Jennifer Lawrence it would seem. In a new interview with MTV, Lawrence seems confident the new film will mark her last appearance as shape shifter Mystique: "It is my last one. Yes."
The next film in "The Ring" franchise has begun production in Atlanta according to the film's director F. Javier Gutierrez . Though long rumored to be a prequel to the previous two films, Gutierrez surprisingly reveals that the film actually takes place thirteen years after the first film. "Rings" is slated to open on November 13th. [Source: Twitter]

Last week X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Hoult revealed that his contract as Beast is up with next year’s Bryan Singer-helmed sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, although the British actor admitted that he’s open to the idea of signing on for more mutant adventures.
Well, it seems that Jennifer Lawrence’s contract to play the shape-shifting mutant Mystique is also set to expire after Apocalypse, but unlike Hoult, it seems she’s ready to call time on the franchise, with the Oscar winner telling MTV News that: “It is my last one, actually.”
Since signing on to play Mystique in X-Men: First Class, Lawrence has become one of the biggest stars in the world (and the most-bankable of 2014) – thanks in no small part to her role in both the X-Men and The Hunger Games franchises, as well as her Academy Award win for »

The actress told MTV News, at the premiere of her latest project Serena, that the upcoming superhero film will be her "last one".
"It is my last one, actually," she said when asked about the X-Men film.
Lawrence's co-star and ex-boyfriend Hoult recently expressed interest in continuing with the X-Men franchise beyond the upcoming film Apocalypse.
"This is the last one I'm signed up for," he said. "The first one did so well and [X-Men: Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly. I have a »
Jennifer Lawrence will be leaving the "X-Men" series after the next film in the franchise, "Apocalypse."
The actress made that revelation during an interview with MTV News while promoting her new film, "Serena." When asked if "Apocalypse" would be the last "X-Men" film in the rebooted series, Lawrence said she wasn't sure, but added that it was the end of the line for her playing Mystique.
"It is my last one," Lawrence told the site in a video interview. No other details about her departure from the franchise were revealed.
Lawrence broke into the "X-Men" series in prequel flick "X-Men: First Class," portraying a younger version of the blue-skinned mutant. She reprised the role for 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and is set to play a major part in the plot of "Apocalypse."
