Rose Byrne Will Reprise Her Role as Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: Apocalypse

7 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rose Byrne, who made a brief appearance in X-Men: First Class as CIA agent and Professor Xavier's (James McAvoy's) love interest Moira MacTaggert, will return to reprise her role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. "She’s a significant character in the movie,” Apocalypse writer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly. MacTaggert will be joining a new cast playing the younger selves of Storm, Jean Grey, and Cyclops, but the main arc of the movie will focus on Professor X, Magneto, Mystique, and Beast. Another thing that is for certain is that the movie will be heavy on '80s nostalgia. "That’s the era that I grew up in," Kinberg said. "The music, the fashion, the videogames: We really want to integrate all of that in the movie, and have it infuse the movie with a different vibe." Rad!  »

Rose Byrne is Back as Moira MacTaggert for 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

8 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The cast of X-Men: Apocalypse just expanded the cast to include Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp as Storm. But it sounds like there will be an X-Men: First Class cast member that we missed in X-Men: Days of Future Past who will be coming back for the next chapter in the X-Men franchise. Entertainment Weekly recently sat down with writer and producer Simon Kinberg and he revealed that Rose Byrne will be back as Moira MacTaggert, a woman from the government who worked with Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) in First Class. Kingberg says that MacTaggert will be "a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them.” There was already some nice development that »

Will 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Introduce Dazzler?

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Are you ready for the big screen introduction of Dazzler? That just may happen, according to X-Men: Apocalypse writer and producer Simon Kinberg. While the next sequel in the X-Men franchise is meant to connect to, and finish, the story introduced in X-Men: First Class, which was later continued in X-Men: Days of Future Past, Kinberg has long admitted that this last story in the trilogy will take place in the 80s. And that means introducing some Mutants that were very popular in the comics at that time.

The writer seems on the fence about Dazzler's introduction in X-Men: Apocalypse. But it could happen. Dazzler is a mutant with the ability to convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams, and was originally developed as a cross-promotional, multi-media creation between Casablanca Records and Marvel Comics to celebrate the Disco era. Says the producer:

"Could happen. We're certainly looking at mutants »

This is the latest casting confirmation following the news that Alexandra Shipp is playing a young Storm, Sophie Turner is young Jean Grey, and Tye Sheridan is set to play young Scott Summers (aka Cyclops).

Writer and producer Simon Kinberg revealed the news to Entertainment Weekly. About the return of Moira MacTaggert, a geneticist and expert in mutant affairs who has appeared in many of the X-Men comics, Simon Kinberg says that the character is an integral part of this particular superhero line-up. He explains:

"She's a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them. It's certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class, »

Actress Rose Byrne ("X-Men: First Class") will reprise her role as Marvel Comics' 'Moira MacTaggert' in director Bryan Singer's "X-Men Apocalypse" feature, currently prepping to start in Montreal, April 2015.

"She's a significant character in the movie, " confirmed screenwriter Simon Kinberg:

"We ended 'First Class' with 'Charles' having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the 'X-Men'. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them...It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in 'First Class', and would like to mine more in this one...." 

"This new movie is the completion of the first arcs of Charles, 'Eric', 'Raven' and 'Hank', who are essentially our main characters," They’re such young actors and young characters, so there’s a lot more story to tell. But as a first phase of their lives, there is this feeling of closure by the end of the movie. »

Rose Byrne To Return As Moira MacTaggert In X-Men: Apocalypse

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rose Byrne was one of several X-Men: First Class cast members to get the axe when the franchise jumped ahead a decade for last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but she’ll be back for more mutant superhero action when the franchise returns in 2016, as she’s officially signed on to reprise her role of CIA agent Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: Apocalypse

Last time we saw MacTaggert, she had successfully aided our titular mutant team in stopping Kevin Bacon from kickstarting World War III, but soon after had her memory erased by Charles Xavier. That thankfully won’t stop her from popping up again when Apocalypse rolls around, and according to writer/producer Simon Kinberg, she’ll have a big role to play:

“She’s a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. »

ABC has ordered four drama pilots, “Boom,” “The Adversaries,” “The Advocate” and “Kingmakers” from “Revenge” producer Sallie Patrick.

Written and exec produced by Patrick for ABC Studios, “Kingmakers” takes place at an elite Ivy League university that is rocked by a student’s sudden death, prompting Her brother to take on a new identity to infiltrate the school and its century-old secret society, consisting of privileged students, ambitious faculty and high-profile alums, in order to investigate the young woman’s death.

Kingsman: The Secret Service movie review: forgets its manners

30 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I cannot recall a film that left me with such a sour taste in my mouth by its end. Does the movie deliberately defy itself with obnoxious intent? I’m “biast” (pro): love Colin Firth

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer did not inspire hope

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is not an gentlemanly movie.

Now, most movies are not very gentlemanly, and this isn’t necessarily a problem — except, perhaps, to those of us who lament the passing of true gentlemanliness as a thing a dude might aspire to. But it’s a honking huge problem forKingsman: The Secret Service. Because this movie makes such a big deal about how gentlemanliness is a thing a dude must exude, certainly if he wants to become a member of the titular elite society of gentleman spies and »
