We knew it was coming, but now we have an idea of when we can expect the extended cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past to arrive, with writer-producer Simon Kinberg announcing that the ‘Rogue Cut’ will be released in the first half of 2015, with summer looking most likely. The extended edition will include more than 10 minutes of additional footage, including Rogue’s (Anna Paquin) sequences, as well as those featuring other characters.
“It’s a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie,” said Kinberg during the official announcement. “We want to give (fans) the fullest picture of the film — behind the camera, and in front of it with the Rogue Cut and provide more of the process we went through” to make the film.”

• Twilight: Eclipse star Xavier Samuel has been cast as Adam/The Monster in a new contemporary version of Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein. Danny Huston (Magic City) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Vegas) will star as modern-day Victor and Elizabeth Frankenstein, a husband and wife team of eccentric scientists living in Los Angeles who create the creature. Bernard Rose (Candyman) has adapted Shelley’s work for the picture he is directing. [Deadline]

Mary Shelley’s estate is probably laughing all the way to the bank. The celebrated author’s gothic horror, Frankenstein, is a noted literary classic. And we all know what happens to popular novels. Yes, they wind up on the school curriculum. But more pertinently – they’re adapted for the big screen. Kenneth Branagh’s version flopped like a beached whale, even if some of its sequences were worthy of a punchier script. This year’s action horror reimagining, I, Frankenstein, didn’t fare much better either.
So, let’s see if the man whose 1992 chiller Candyman made everyone terrified of coat hooks, Bernard Rose, can finally get it right. Aye aye, kiddies, there’s gonna be another big-screen adaptation – and it’s just landed a leading man-ster.

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.
Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.
Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.

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 »

Update: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just won't die, and hopefully the new cast will give it the breath of life it needs to make the parody film work. Lily Collins is now out, but Lily James (the new Cinderella) is in. Other new cast members include Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Romeo & Juliet) as Mr. Darcy's friend Bingley and Emma Greenwell ("Shameless") as Bingley's sister, and Jack Huston (Kill Your Darlings) as the handsome Lt. Wickham. It hasn't been clarified if Riley is playing Mr. Darcy or if that role has yet to be cast.
May 2, 2013: Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) will star in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies and, in doing so, brings the project back from grave. Burr Steers (17 Again) will direct, which - if you're counting - makes the project's the fifth director. The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's reimagining of »

Sony Television and PlayStation Network’s upcoming adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s comic book series Powers has bolstered its cast with the addition of Eddie Izzard (Hannibal), Oleysa Rulin (High School Musical) and Noah Taylor (Edge of Tomorrow).
According to Deadline, Izzard will play Wolfe – “the bogeyman of the Powers universe — a top-level Power who has spent the last two decades incarcerated in the Shaft, his terrible abilities kept in check through a brutal regimen of surgical procedures. Before that, he was a mentor of then-up-and-coming Powers, Christian Walker.”
Taylor is set to appear as Johnny Royalle, “a criminal mastermind rulinPower with the ability to pop in and out of locations at will.

After his phenomenal turn as fan favorite Richard Harrow on HBO's Boardwalk Empire, everyone expected Jack Huston to become the next big thing in Hollywood. His name has been linked to roles in Frankenstein, James Bond, and even the role of Star-Lord that went to Chris Pratt in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Instead, he has appeared in smaller roles in films like Twilight: Eclipse, American Hustle, and Kill Your Darlings. His next role will hopefully change that. Huston has been cast as the »

Wickham aims to teach zombies to fight, and he wins Liz over with his theories regarding training them.

Back at the start of last month, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that an extended Director’s Cut of this year’s mutant superhero smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past would be arriving later this year. However, if you were planning on putting off buying the theatrical version – which arrives in October – in order to wait for the extended edition, then we have some bad news for you as 20th Century Fox’s Evp of Marketing Communications James Finn has stated via Twitter that the extended cut won’t be out until 2015. So, it seems any Anna Paquin fans out there are going to have to wait a little longer before they get to see Rogue back in action…
Will you be picking up the theatrical edition of X-Men: Days of Future Past, or do you plan on holding off for the extended cut?

Having directed 3 X-Men movies (his latest being X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Superman Returns, you would expect Bryan Singer to be moving away from the comic book world before heading back in for X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. However, Tracking Boards show that his company, Bat Hat Harry, have acquired the rights to The Age of Heroes by James Hudnall for a big screen adaptation.
The Age of Heroes was released in the 1990s. Here’s the synopsis:
When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make »

With an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s Powers comic book series heading to PlayStation Network this December, Sony Pictures TV has secured its first director for the show in British filmmaker David Slade. Slade’s feature films include Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, while his previous television work includes Awake, Crossbones, Hannibal and Breaking Bad.
A police procedural / superhero fantasy, Powers “is set in a world full of people with superhuman abilities and where all of those powers are just another catalyst for mayhem and murder. The series follows Detective Christian Walker, who is in charge of protecting humans like us and investigating cases involving the God-like men and women, referred to as ‘powers,’ who glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire and who clash above cities in epic battle, oblivious to the mortals below.”

David Slade is a great movie director (that brief foray into paycheck territory with “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” notwithstanding — hey, guy’s got mortgages to pay, probably), and as it turns out, he’s also a pretty snazzy TV director, too. The man who gave us “30 Days of Nights” on the big screen and multiple episodes of “Hannibal” on the small screen will now be giving us the first two episodes of the Playstation Network’s original show “Powers.” “Powers,” in case you lost track, was supposed to be a big-time FX Channel TV series, based on the comic book of the same name about a world filled with superheroes. The show’s angle was that it would concentrate on the non-powered cops who have to deal with this new breed of menace. Well, “Powers” never really got anywhere on FX after years of development, and even though it actually »
PlayStation Network's Powers adaptation is fleshing out its behind-the-scenes crew as production on the live-action comic book take inches closer to its start date. Hannibal's David Slade has been tapped to direct the first two episodes of the series from studio Sony Pictures Television. Slade, whose credits include Breaking Bad and features 30 Days of Night and Twilight: Eclipse, joins a creative team that includes writer/Ep Charlie Huston, comic creator Brian Michael Bendis, Remi Aubuchon, Michael Avon Oeming, Michael Diner and David Engel.
