Bryan Singer has been pretty generous in tweeting behind-the-scenes images from the set of the currently-in-production X-Men: Days of Future Past, and this morning he's debuted a new image, this time featuring himself reviewing the screenplay with Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), who is set to portray the film's as-yet-unconfirmed primary antagonist. Of course, Dinklage isn't in costume, but whoever he's playing, we can assume they'll be sporting an impressive moustache:
Last week, Singer gave us a look at Hugh Jackman's Logan and Nicholas Hoult's pre-transformation Hank McCoy [see here], while previous images have included Professor X (James McAvoy), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Storm (Halle Berry), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult).
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for release on July 18th 2014, with a cast that also includes Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Anna Paquin (Rogue »

With cameras currently rolling on X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer is making quite a habit of giving fans a behind-the-scenes peek at next year's X-Men sequel via his Twitter account; the director has already given us a first look at much of the ensemble cast - including Professor X (James McAvoy), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Storm (Halle Berry), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) - and now he's brought the worlds of the original X-Men trilogy and X-Men: First Class together with his latest set photo which features Wolverine and a rather human-looking Beast...

British filmmaker Mike Le Han and production partner Black Lake have attached a trio of leads for teen fantasy “The Peppercorn Chronicles” — Jodelle Ferland (“Twilight,” pictured above), Noah Ringer and Michael Eklund.
Project is loosely based on “Mrs. Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room,” a 24-minute fantasy short that won best short film at the HollyShorts Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2011.
Story, scripted by Le Han and spouse Helen Le Han, follows a teenage girl who moves to Black Lake with her parents. After meeting the local bakery owner’s son, she discovers dark secrets revealing that she could be the key to saving humanity.
The Le Hans sold the franchise rights in 2011 to Brit crime author Martina Cole’s production company Black Lake and are aiming to launch a trilogy. Cole will executive produce.
Production is expected to begin in February in the U.S. and Hungary.

The countdown of "first looks" at characters from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past continues with the director tweeting this picture of James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier with the comment "#Serpico"...
His James May-inspired shirt would suggest that the X-Men: First Class timeline of the movie will be set in the 1970s as previously rumoured and planned by original director Matthew Vaughan. Anyone else think he looks like Edgar Wright?
This picture joins our first looks at Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Storm (Halle Berry), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult). Who's next?
From the looks of the photos, this seems to be the same set where the photo of Kitty Pryde was taken, which also featured Iceman. Could the original X-Men crew be heading back in time to the 70s?

After what must have been an agonising wait for North American audiences, Iron Man 3 finally made its way across the Pond this week, posting a $15.6 million midnight opening on Thursday to kick off a projected $160 million plus weekend at the domestic box office. Marvel's first Phase Two offering has already pulled in $345 million from international markets by Friday - having topped the debut weekend of The Avengers, dominated the UK box office, and shattered the midnight opening record in the »

Iron Man 3 had a very strong opening day as it blazed across the domestic box office to take in $68.5 million. It earned $15.6 million of that during Midnight showings on Thursday.
Though in the top ten best opening days in history, the movie failed to meet the demands of Marvel's The Avengers, which brought in over $80 million at the box office last year at this time. The Dark Knight Rises took in $75.7 on its opening day last July. And Tony Stark wasn't any match for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, which had an amazing $91 million opening day in 2011. Iron Man 3 is currently tied with 2010's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in 7th place.
So far, Iron Man 3 has racked up impressive numbers overseas, pulling in over $345 million.
Right now, box office analysis put the film at $165 million for the weekend. Some think it might score the »
With $68.5 million coming in on Friday alone ($15.6m from midnight screenings), Iron Man 3 is targeting a $170 million opening weekend, which would give it the #2 all-time opening over Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which opened with $169.1 million in 2011. In terms of opening days, Iron Man 3's $68.5 million, should that estimate hold, places it around the #7 all-time opening day opposite The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which also brought in $68.5 million back in 2010. Otherwise, Pain & Gain brought in $2.3 million and 42 delivered $1.8 million. I'll have the complete top ten for you tomorrow. ERCBoxOffice »

Having given us a peek at Hugh Jackman's Wolverine (well, the back of his head at least) earlier this week, Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter once again to deliver his latest behind-the-scenes image from X-Men: Days of Future Past, this time offering up our first look at Kitty Pryde (who is of course a major player in the original comic book arc), with Ellen Page reprising her role from X-Men: The Last Stand...
This first look at Kitty Pryde is the latest in a series of character reveals from Singer, with past tweets featuring Patrick Stewart's Professor Xavier, Nicholas Hoult's Beast, Halle Berry's Storm and Shawn Ashmore's Iceman.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently filming ahead of a release on July 18th, 2014, with a cast that also features James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Anna Paquin »

Though he’s known for films like The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Hard Candy, director David Slade has been spending his time in the world of television lately. He directed the pilot for Awake, he’s helmed three episodes of the Mads Mikkelsen starring Hannibal and has also taken a stab at an episode of Breaking Bad. Now, the director is returning to the big screen as THR reports that he’s on board to step behind the camera for The Widow, a psychological thriller from Vendom Pictures, who produced and financed Source Code.
Penned by Ray Wright (The Crazies, Case 39), the film follows “a young woman who befriends a lonely widow only to discover that their encounter was not a coincidence.” No casting has been announced just yet but the search for a lead actress is underway and Slade is hoping to start shooting later this year.

After directing The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (arguably the best film in the franchise, which isn't saying much), 30 Days of Night and Hard Candy director David Slade stepped back into more comfortable territory on TV by directing the pilot for "Awake," three episodes of "Hannibal" with Mads Mikkelsen (worth checking out) and an episode of "Breaking Bad." Now the director is coming to big screen thriller territory as THR reports Slade is on board to direct a psychological thriller called The Widow for a company called Vendome Pictures, which financed and produced the Duncan Jones' film Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal. Ray Wright, who scripted The Crazies and Case 39, is behind the script which follows a young woman who befriends a lonely widow only to discover that their encounter was not a coincidence. And that's all the information we have. There's likely some sort of darker, twisted element to »

NBC.s Hannibal has started off fairly strong, becoming one of the network.s more solid dramas in the past few years (even through some setbacks). A lot of that can be traced to the story, sure, but some of it had to do with executive producer David Slade, whose slick direction really made his episodes look like they belonged to a far more established series, and were better than the film of the same name. Though he.s been on a TV run since last directing 2010.s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Slade is bringing his talents back to theaters with the psychological thriller The Widow for Vendome Pictures. For those put off by the Twilight reference, Slade also directed the snowy vampire horror 30 Days of Night and 2005.s Hard Candy, one of the most uncomfortable dramas in the last decade. Less exciting is that The Widow was written by »

"We are thrilled to be working on this piece with David. He is such a dynamic filmmaker, and we are excited about his vision to make this movie a throwback to some of the most iconic thrillers in cinematic history -- not to mention the two females leads being the strongest and most interesting we have seen in some time."
We should all prepare for a brand new psychological thriller, ’cause The Widow is definitely coming! And the good news is that the whole thing will be directed by David Slade, man responsible for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse movie (I mean, that’s a good thing, right?) Slade will direct The Widow from a script written by Ray Wright, which will revolve around a young woman who befriends a lonely widow only to discover that their encounter was not a coincidence. See, this already sounds a little bit boring to me, but I will still give Slade and his team a try and wait for some...

According to Newsarama, during an "Iron Man 3" press junket, Marvel Studios president of production, Kevin Feige confirmed that the cinematic rights to "Daredevil" have reverted back to Marvel. Newsarama says, "We directly asked Feige if the reports were accurate, to which he replied in the affirmative."
Previously, Fox had the rights to Daredevil and produced the 2003 lackluster film "Daredevil" starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. According to an August 2012 report, Fox had until October 10, 2012 to get a new film into production or the rights would revert back to Marvel. Fox rushed a new Daredevil film into development, first working with director by David Slade ("The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," "30 Days of Night") until that fell through and Fox moved to Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "The A-Team"). Carnahan's film also didn't make the cut and the film did not get the greenlight. Carnahan then released a killer sizzle »

There's now less than two weeks to go until Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets underway in the UK with the release of Iron Man 3 - which, according Fandango, is the most anticipated movie of the summer, leading a top ten ahead of Star Trek Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby, Fast & Furious 6, The Hangover Part III, Man of Steel, Despicable Me 2, The Lone Ranger, World War Z and Monsters University (I'm guessing Superman fans might have something to say about a 7th placed finish for Man of Steel).

It would appear that Cerebro is set to make an appearance in this film too, though that is just an educated guess at the moment.
Any ideas what else it could be?
