X-Men: Apocalypse starts casting its Jean Grey and Cyclops

19 November 2014 9:16 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In the “original trilogy” of X-Men movies, Famke Janssen was Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner’s Jean Grey. She was a force to be reckoned with, and she wore a heck of a lot of red. On the other side of the Jean-Scott coin, James Marsden’s Cyclops had enough cheek and charm to throw off Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) as a rival for Jean Grey’s attentions.

But that was then. This is now. Let’s get into some Days of Future Past spoilers.

With X-Men: Days Of Future Past rebooting the X-Men timeline and essentially erasing everything that happened in X-Men: The Last Stand, it makes sense that Janssen and Marsden are back, casually talking to Logan  at the end of Days of Future Past as if nothing happened.

In that scene, however, it’s clear that this is when Professor Xavier is much older (and more bald) – as »

Haley Bennett Joins "Blunderer" Adaptation

19 November 2014 5:22 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Haley Bennett ("Ender's Game," "True Grit") will join Patrick Wilson and Jessica Biel in the untitled psychological thriller adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel "The Blunderer" at Sierra Pictures, 120dB Films and Electric Shadow.

Set in early 1960s New York, Wilson plays a successful architect married to the beautiful wife (Biel). His fascination with an unsolved murder however leads him on a downward spiral.

He's soon forced to play cat-and-mouse with a clever killer and an overambitious detective while at the same time lusting after another woman (Bennett). Bennett replaces Imogen Poots whom was previously cast in the part of the other woman.

Andy Goddard helms the project which began filming this week in Cincinnati. Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa and Ted Hope are producing.

Actors Line Up for Jean Grey and Cyclops Roles in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

18 November 2014 4:22 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I enjoyed X-Men: Days of Future Past and have a little bit of interest in seeing what Bryan Singer has planned for X-Men: Apocalypse, but I have to admit that when I see casting news that several actors are in contention to play the roles of Jean Grey and Cyclops in the film it feels a little like attempting to reinvent the wheel. Yes, I understand all franchises recast characters and I'm not above acknowledging the hypocrisy, but for whatever reason the fact this is supposed to be within the same world as all the other X-Men films it makes me wish we could just get a few new characters rather than reintroducing old ones with new faces. Especially when I thought both Famke Janssen and James Marsden did quite well with the roles. But pushing all the bitching and moaning aside, The Wrap has the skinny on the new talent, »

Stunning Sci-Fi Adventure Short - Plug

6 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've got an incredibly awesome sci-fi short film called "Plug" that you've got to take the time to watch. The movie was directed by David Levy, and it follows a spunky girl named Leila who embarks on an adventure to find other life forms in the world that she lives in. Her survival is put in jeopardy when she does.

Levy is a designer and concept artist who has worked on films such as Tron: Legacy, Prometheus, Ender's Game, Tomorrowland, and Avatar 2. You can definitely see he brought his A-game talents to this short film, and as you'll see it turned out spectacular. 

Levy sent us the short and explained that it's "a return to 1970's classics like Star Wars and Mad Max with a gritty universe, an Asimov vibe in the storyline and made from mostly live props and real life settings." Here's the synopsis that was released with »

McGregor On 'Star Wars' "Wankers", New 'Age of Ultron' Clip, 'True Detective' Season 2 Casting & More

31 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ewan McGregor tells Details the Trainspotting sequel "might happen" and doesn't speak to highly of Star Wars crazies saying: I don't have any experience with them. I've never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f**kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f**king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They're not fans -- they're parasitical lowlifes and f**king wankers. The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to write The Lego Movie 2, though no word on whether they'll return to direct the sequel which is set for a May 25, 2018 release date.

29 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After taking on some young adult sci-fi with Ender's Game last year, Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld is getting her own young romance too. Deadline has word that Steinfeld will star in The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight, an adaptation of Jennifer E. Smith's young adult novel of the same name. The film will see Steinfeld as a young twentysomething who has having a pretty terrible day waiting in an airport for a flight to London to attend her father's second wedding. But while she waits, she meets a young British guy, and of course sparks fly when they're seated next to each other on the plane. For more details, here's the official synopsis of the book: Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life.

Hadley and Oliver's story about family connections, second chances and first loves will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it. Awwwww. Jason Bateman is "Ipo Man," and no, he's not a superhero.

Hailee Steinfeld falls hard for Dustin Lance Black’s Ya adaptation 'Statistical Probability'

29 October 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s been a slow post-Oscar star for Hailee Steinfeld and writer-producer-director Dustin Lance Black. Not disastrous, but not the typical rise to prominence and slew of work that comes with the Academy Award touch. Steinfeld earned a nomination in 2011 for her work on the Coen Bros’ “True Grit.” Two years earlier, Black won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for “Milk.” Since then, neither have tackled material that’s brought them back into the awards conversation. Their next project may not have the bravado to take them back to the ceremony, but it sounds like a step in the right direction. According to Deadline’s report out of the American Film Market in Santa Monica, Steinfeld is on board to star in Black’s adaptation of “The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight,” a young adult novel by Jennifer E. Smith. The film follows a whirlwind romance set in »

28 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Tim Burton is preparing to go into production on his next film, which is an adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire, Sin City 2) is already set to play the title character, and now the director is looking to cast Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield as the other lead.

The news comes from The Wrap, who says, "Butterfield has not received an official offer yet, insiders say one is expected to materialize soon, as he's Burton's choice for the coveted role."

The story follows a teenager who must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to get them.

If Butterfield gets the part, he would play 16-year-old Jacob Portman, "who seeks the truth about his grandfather's past after he's murdered by a 'hollow,' a vicious creature that Jacob had thought to be imaginary. »

Box Office Predictions: 'The Equalizer' Takes on 'The BoxTrolls'

25 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Equalizer is going to be first among equals this weekend, even with that R rating, and even with those faltering reviews. It runs a bit over two hours, but it's a romp, and it should do fairly well with the menfolk. For precedent it seems like Two Guns is our best bet, that opened at $27 million about thirteen months ago. I don't have much imagination, so that's where I'm putting this one too. At a $55 million budget this one will come down to international dollars, but if you watch the trailers you'll quickly figure out not much of that money will be coming from Russia. The BoxTrolls is our next topic for discussion, it immediately brings to mind Frankenweenie and ParaNorman. Neither of those opened particularly strong, but there's some hope in late September, just last year Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs owned at the box office. That »

'Boxtrolls' Interview with Ben Kingsley | Exclusive

25 September 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you're like me, then you have two thumbs, a beard that needs to be trimmed, and will see anything that Ben Kingsley is in, or at least you'll try to. A constant workaholic, this Oscar-winning actor has, I kid you not, 14 different films that are either awaiting release or in various stages of production and/or development. This is after appearing in six films last year, including big-budget affairs like Iron Man 3 and Ender's Game, along with indie titles such as Walking with the Enemy.

The iconic actor lends his voice to the villainous Archibald Snatcher in Laika and Focus Features' The Boxtrolls, but unlike many animated movies that depend on the recognition factor of celebrity voices, Ben Kingsley creates a much different voice in bringing this nefarious character to life. Based on the Alan Snow novel Here Be Monsters, The Boxtrolls is set in the peaceful town of Cheesebridge, »

Tim Burton Wants Asa Butterfield for 'Big Eyes' Follow-up, 'Miss Peregrine'

25 September 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Apparently they didn't have the make-up to turn Johnny Depp into a 16-year-old boarding school student, so "Hugo" and "Ender's Game" star Asa Butterfield is Tim Burton's top choice for the lead in the upcoming "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children." Based on Ransom Riggs's best selling fantasy novel, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" follows 16-year-old boy Jacob as he investigates his grandfather's paranormal murder, meets a firestarter named Emma, and travels back in time to 1940 to miss the titular caretaker. The "peculiar children" are like a Hogwartsian spin on the X-Men, each with their own super-powered gifts. The Wrap reports that, if deals go down the way they're predicted to, Butterfield will take on the role of Jacob alongside Eva Green's Miss Peregrine. The disappointing returns of "Frankenweenie" and "Dark Shadows" aren't keeping Burton down. The gothic auteur's next film, "Big Eyes," is looking like »
