London in disguise: 7 times the capital doubled for another location

13 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

London's incredibly varied architecture - encompassing Shakespearean and Victorian-era buildings, secret underground tunnels and modern skyscrapers - has seen the city double for everything from 19th century Paris in Les Misérables to outer space in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Digital Spy takes a tour of the capital to find out more…

1. Millennium Bridge, Thames Embankment

We're used to seeing tourists snapping photos and commuters walking briskly across this distinctive bridge, but on August 12 last year, onlookers stopped and gasped as a group of exotically-attired aliens ran across the suspension bridge. This was no prank or stag do, but rather a scene from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which can currently be seen taking the international box office by storm. Incredibly, the bridge was doubling for outer space, albeit with a CGI generated backdrop to hide St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern.

2. The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

The Most Disappointing Films – X-Men: First Class (2011)

12 September 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras’ Most Disappointing Films returns with X-Men: First Class

Disappointing movies are all about the final product falling short of expectations. That shouldn’t have been a problem with X-Men: First Class (henceforth referred to as ‘First Class’) because it had such earnest goals. To start the X-Men franchise over. To erradicate the creative horrors unleashed by uber-hack Brett Rattner. It took the path of least resistance: go back to the beginning and tell the origins of the X-Men. Lay the groundwork for the fissure that split Charles Xavier and Magneto down divergent paths. Tell a story that the movies hadn’t yet tackled. Clean the slate and bring in new talent to tell the tale. While I never like the idea of origin story superhero movies, we never had a proper one for the X-Men, so I suppose four films into the series it was about time to tackle that task. »

James McAvoy Will Likely Go Bald in X-men: Apocalypse

12 September 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Brace yourselves, X-Men fans: a staple of the comic books may be emerging in director Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel X-Men: Apocalypse.  Ever since James McAvoy was first cast as the young Professor X in X-Men: First Class, fans have been asking when he’ll be taking on Charles’ signature Mr. Clean-esque hairstyle.  It’s kind of a silly thing to harp on (does it really matter that much if Professor X has hair or not?), but following the events of the recent X-Men: Days of Future Past, it appears that the character may start to look more like his comics counterpart, as McAvoy recently said he thinks Apocalypse is when his character will finally go bald.  More after the jump. While speaking with Huffington Post in a recent interview, McAvoy talked a bit about the upcoming X-Men sequel X-Men: Apocalypse and dropped this tidbit: “I’ll be older in this one. »

James McAvoy Will Finally Be Bald in X-Men: Apocalypse

12 September 2014 3:09 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We've seen James McAvoy play Charles Xavier in "X-Men: First Class" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." And while we've seen him in a wheelchair, he has yet to lose his hair and look more like Patrick Stewart, who plays an older version of Xavier. But in a new interview with The Huffington Post, the actor revealed that he'll be bald in "X-Men: Apocalypse," the next installment in the franchise. "I'll be older in this one," said McAvoy. "[And] I think I'm losing my hair finally." Little is known about "X-Men: Apocalypse," except that it will take place in the 1980s and focus mostly on the cast members from "X-Men: First Class." The new movie is set to hit theaters on May 27th, 2016. »

James McAvoy on X-Men: Apocalypse

11 September 2014 9:46 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's time for Professor X to go bald, as James McAvoy hints at what's in store for X-Men: Apocalypse...

We suspect that when he signed up to play Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class, James McAvoy committed himself to at least three films. The third of those is going into production next year, as X-Men: Apocalypse looks set to build on the success enjoyed this year by X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Chatting to The Huffington Post, McAvoy has confirmed "I'll be older in this one", adding that "I think I'm losing my hair finally". He's still pretty much in the dark on the film, though, although he has been in touch with writer/producer Simon Kinberg.

What did Kinberg say? "He was getting dead excited about stuff, but he didn't want to divulge anything for a couple of weeks ... it does seem fairly global, if we're talking apocalypse. Maybe it's just the character's name, »

James McAvoy Talks Professor X's Future

11 September 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

No, James McAvoy isn’t having a stressful time of it and shedding locks of hair in the shower every morning. He’s talking about Professor Charles Xavier, famously bald but noticeably hairy of head in his two prequel appearances in X-Men: First Class and Days Of Future Past. According to McAvoy, that’s set to change for Apocalypse.Asked about the new film during an interview for The Huffington Post, McAvoy was naturally cagey, lest he give away too much – not that he knows much about the next X-adventure anyway. “I got an email from the Simon Kinberg who informed me he was getting dead excited about stuff, but he didn't want to divulge anything for a couple of weeks, so I really don't know," he said. “I'll be older in this one. And I think I'm losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that's kind of all I know. »

James McAvoy May Finally Go Bald For X-Men: Apocalypse

11 September 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James McAvoy has now played iconic X-Men patriarch Charles Xavier twice on film, but the actor has managed to keep his head of hair intact throughout both X-Men: First Class and this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. That’s a surprising feat given that the character has traditionally been bald both in comics and previous films. However, according to McAvoy himself, his days of sporting luscious locks while playing the telepath may finally be behind him.

While promoting his next film, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, McAvoy was asked by The Huffington Post about the next installment in the franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor admits that he doesn’t know many details about it yet, as things are still being kept under wraps, but he does talk a bit about his hair situation:

James McAvoy will probably be bald in X-Men: Apocalypse

11 September 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James McAvoy has now played the character of Charles Xavier on two occasions in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, yet both times he has had a full head of hair. In the comics the character has always been bald and has been portrayed by Patrick Stewart in most of the X-Men films with a bald head. Whilst promoting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, McAvoy has revealed that he may in fact finally lose the hair himself for 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, McAvoy was asked about Apocalypse being set in 1983, ten years after Days of Future Past, and said: “I’ll be older in this one, I think I’m losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that’s kind of all I know.”

The actor says he doesn’t really know much about the project as of yet, but has been »

James McAvoy Will Go Bald as Professor X in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

11 September 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While people still wonder if Jesse Eisenberg is going to be bald as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, James McAvoy, who plays the young Professor X in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, thinks he will shave his scalp down for his next appearance as the character in X-Men: Apocalypse.

While he can't say much about the character's arc this time around, or what the storyline will contain, James McAvoy did tease the upcoming sequel, explaining that director Bryan Singer is allowing Charles Xavier to mature quite a bit.

"I'll be older in this one. [And] I think I'm losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that's kind of all I know."

It actually sounds like the actor doesn't know much more than we do. He hasn't seen the script yet, explaining:

James McAvoy Will Finally Be Losing His Hair For X-Men: Apocalypse

11 September 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James McAvoy has done a truly spectacular job establishing himself within the X-Men franchise as the younger version of Professor Charles Xavier . even under the pressure of living up to the performances of the great Patrick Stewart. But while the Scottish star has brought amazing emotional levels to the character in both X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, one key aesthetic element that has been completely missing is the trademark chrome dome. That will finally be changing in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. This little scoop was provided by James McAvoy himself, who was recently a guest on Huffpost Live and spilled the beans about his bald future. While he makes it sound like the decision to have him shave his head has not yet been made 100% official, his phrasing also suggests that it has been discussing with the franchise.s writers and producers.

First TV Spot for 'Annabelle'

10 September 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema have released the first TV Spot for Annabelle, which is the spin-off of 2013's "The Conjuring" and based on the James Wan film's demonic doll.

She terrified you in “The Conjuring,” but this is where it all began for "Annabelle."

Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut—visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month.

The film follows John Form, who has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long. 

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing »

Tiff 2014 Review – Good Kill (2014)

9 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Good Kill, 2014.

Directed by Andrew Niccol.

Starring Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Bruce Greenwood, and Jake Abel.

 

Synopsis:

A troubled Air Force officer (Ethan Hawke) charged with directing drone strikes enters a moral minefield as the rationale for targeting purported terrorists becomes questionable.

A former fighter pilot is grounded doing drone missions from the safe confines of Los Vegas, Nevada where the military missions resemble a video game except for the images being real; he is bored being able to go home to his family every night and instead wishes to be back up in sky flying missions.  Complications arise when the CIA takes control of the operation and starts making decisions which run counter to the usual military protocol.  As the questionable deaths and tactics mount so does the emotional toil, particularly on the veteran airman and the new member of the team.

Former Fox Casting VP Brehan Fitzgerald Joins Resolution As Talent Agent

8 September 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Jeff Berg’s Resolution has hired new agent Brehan Fitzgerald from the ranks of 20th Century Fox’s casting division. The former VP of Fox feature casting is starting to make calls around town as she transitions into her new gig repping talent at the agency, effective today.

Why make the leap from casting exec to talent agent? “Working with artists is very rewarding, but when you work in casting you only get to do it for short period of time,” she told me. “Joining the representation side is much more exciting because when you work with an artist, it’s for the long term.” Fitzgerald had a hand in casting some of the studio’s biggest franchises during her 12 year run at Fox, where she rose to VP in 2012. She helped land Michael B. Jordan and Dane DeHaan in Josh Trank’s low budget sci-fier Chronicle, Toby Kebbel »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »
