Director Bryan Singer has just unveiled a photo of himself and Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones") going over the script on their way to the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" set in Montreal. It's still unclear what role Dinklage will play, but it will likely be a villain role, a villain with a mustache. Check out the photo below. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has Kitty Pryde sending her mind back to her younger self in order to warn the X-Men that Senator Robert Kelly's assassination will result in a future where Sentinels rule the United States and mutants live in internment camps. The new movie co-stars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing and Boo Boo Stewart. It's set to hit theaters on July 18th, 2014. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
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 »

The story alternates between present day, in which the 'X-Men' fight the 'Brotherhood of Evil Mutants' led by mutant shape-shifter 'Mystique', and a future timeline caused by the X-Men's failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating 'Senator Robert Kelly' :
"...the story begins 30 years in the future. In the 'present' the year is 1980, and 'Kitty Pryde' has just joined the X-Men.
"While in the 'future' 'Kate Pryde' is a middle-aged women running for her life, trying to meet up with an elderly 'Wolverine' in a now-destroyed New York City.
"The future is bleak; an assassination of a presidential hopeful senator in 1980 led to a »

It’s been 2 months since we’ve seen a vlog from the Legendary set of the film Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards. This vlog is pretty short and sweet, just marking the one year count down to the release of the epic movie.
It’s hard because we’ve been spoiled by the behind the scenes tweets for movies like The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Gareth Edwards doesn’t want to show us much at all for fear of spoiling the movie. I get that, but I’m a little sad faced anyway.

It is worth rewatching to get a look at the two guys in the back ground that look pretty roughed up.

Bryan Singer delivered a new image from X-Men: Days of Future Past earlier this week featuring Hugh Jackman's Wolverine alongside Nicholas Hoult's Beast, and now director James Mangold has taken to Twitter himself to remind us that Jackman has another solo outing arriving prior to next year's mutant ensemble by releasing four new behind-the-scenes images from July's The Wolverine....
"Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality."
The Wolverine is set for release on July 26th, »

The Wolverine is just over two months out from its debut at the multiplex, and we’ve seen nothing but good things from the film so far.

And now director James Mangold has taken to Twitter once more to share a handful of new set photos. And with them comes the news that he’s coming close to completing the film in its entirety:
We are in the home stretch as we begin recording the score and mixing the film this week.

A couple of days ago we brought you the first image of Hugh Jackman on the set of Bryan Singer’s 1970s-set mutant adventure X-men: Days Of Future Past. However, before we see him mixing it up as part of the plot that merges the past and present cast of characters from the Marvel universe, he’ll first be unleashed upon Tokyo, Japan, in the James Mangold-directed The Wolverine.
The spin-off sequel is based on Chris Claremont’s acclaimed comic-book arc that see the adamantium-clawed hulking hero Logan, offered the chance to rid himself of his super-powered curse from a man he once saved. We’re hoping it wipes any memory of Gavin Hood’s woeful X-men Origins: Wolverine. It certainly can’t be any worse… can it?

Does the Hollywood system want spoilers to be protected, or have they become part of the marketing fabric?
Please note: there are no spoilers in this article. Please do not leave any in the comments below!
Early in the production of Star Trek Into Darkness, a series of stills were leaked of a fight involving Benedict Cumberbatch's John Harrison. Believe the stories, and those behind the scenes - not least Jj Abrams - were extremely unhappy about the leak. Abrams is, after all, someone who works hard to protect surprises. Just look at the sudden trailer reveal for Super 8 a few years back, or the whole Cloverfield build up. He's one of the few directors who usually has the power to reveal what he wants only when he's ready to reveal it.
Most of Star Trek Into Darkness was shot on sound stages, »
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...
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for release on July 18th 2014, with a cast that also includes returning X-Men veterans Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Anna Paquin (Rogue) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) alongside series newcomers Fan Binbing (Iron Man 3), Omar Sy »
