How soon will it be before we see Olivia Munn facing off against Ronda Rousey on the big screen? Probably sometime in the very near future, if the latest X-Men: Apocalypse video is any indication. It was announced yesterday by director Bryan Singer that X-Men: Apocalypse has officially wrapped first unit shooting. And then shortly after, Olivia Munn released yet another behind-the-scenes video of her intense martial arts training. Why is she still doing this?
It appears the former talk show host-turned-actress is continuing to define and perfect her kick-ass kickboxing skills for future superhero movies. While it was thought that all the main actors had wrapped, perhaps she is being called in for some second unit shooting? Or she already knows that she is required to return for reshoots at some point in the future. Maybe, just maybe, she is going to keep perfecting the skills she learned on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, »
Hollywood must have a synced production cycle, because every year, once the first summer blockbuster wraps, they all seem to wrap at around the same time. Yesterday, Marvel co-president Louis D'Esposito announced that Captain America: Civil War had closed shop. Now comes word from director Bryan Singer that first unit production has also wrapped on his franchise sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. He even shared a photo from the last day of production on Instragm, along with three shots from the after party that include a few of his cast members.
2016 is going to be an explosive year for superhero cinema! Not only are we getting X-Men: Apocalypse, the film that will kick off next year's summer moviegoing season, we're also getting two spinoffs, with Deadpool arriving in February and Gambit debuting in October. That's not to mention Disney and Marvel have Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange lined-up for next year, »

Given that 20th Century Fox appears to have shifted its focus onto the younger cast of the X-Men franchise following X-Men: Days of Future Past, it seems unlikely that we’ll be seeing Shawn Ashmore back as Bobby Drake any time in the near future. However, that hasn’t stopped him from expressing his interest in returning as Iceman for a solo movie.
“An Iceman solo movie? If Fox would make it then I would do it,” Ashmore told IGN. “I love that character, I love the Marvel universe, especially the last couple of films. I was so excited about Days of Future Past when I heard about that – reading the script, realising the script – it was so exciting for me, so if that was ever an opportunity? Absolutely.”
Ashmore then revealed that he thinks the franchise works better with team-based movies as opposed to solo outings: “The other thing »

Forbes have released their annual list of the highest paid actresses of 2015, and Jennifer Lawrence has topped it, with $52 million earned in the last 12 months. Lawrence has had a great year, starring in the penultimate ‘Hunger Games‘ movie, as well as turns in X-Men: Days Of Future Past (though that may have fallen into last year’s pay-packet), and the poorly received Serena. She has a promising 2015-2016 too with a reported $20 million going into the bank for sci-fi drama Passengers with Chris Pratt, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and the awards-buzzed Joy.
Scarlett Johannson was number two on the list with $35 million earned, with Melissa McCarthy having a storming year with $23 million banked. Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who appeared in ‘Days Of Future Past’ as well, came in at number four with $21 million earned. »

During his time in the X-Men franchise, Patrick Stewart has rolled around in a few very awesome wheelchairs, but one of them can truly be called king. Moving beyond the need for wheels, X-Men: Days of Future Past had the leader of the X-Men riding around in a specially designed chair that let him float around on air. Given the nature of filmmaking these days, you might have thought that the movement of this transport was created using visual effects, but it turns out that's not the case. Instead, the production apparently built a really floating chair for Patrick Stewart to sit in. Currently out promoting his new Showtime series Blunt Talk, Stewart recently took to Reddit for a special Ask Me Anything session, and it was in answering a fan's question that the actor revealed the realities behind Xavier's Days of Future Past ride.

A “hot” new release didn’t sell enough copies to budge “Insurgent” and “Home” from the two top spots on the national home-video sales charts for the week ending Aug. 16.
Warner’s “Hot Pursuit,” a comedy-action film about an uptight cop (Reese Witherspoon) charged with protecting the gabby widow of a drug boss (Sofia Vergara), debuted at No. 3 on Nielsen VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart–still a strong debut given the film’s less-than-spectacular domestic box office take of $34.6 million.
Lionsgate’s “Insurgent,” the sequel to the futuristic actioner “Divergent,” and DreamWorks Animation’s “Home,” distributed on home video by 20th Century Fox, held onto the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on both VideoScan as well as the research firm’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
All three films were released early on electronic sellthrough/Digital HD. “Insurgent” and “Hot Pursuit” were available for downloading two weeks before their disc release, »

Forbes has today unveiled its annual list of the highest paid actress in Hollywood, and it’s no surprise to see Jennifer Lawrence at the top of the list.
The 25-year-old Hunger Games star has pocketed $52 million pre-tax earnings over the last 2 months to top the new list, $16.5 million ahead of the current No.2, Avengers star Scarlett Johansson, who earned a cool $35.5 million
In addition to the usual Us contingent present on the list, their is a global feel to some of the actresses on this year’s rundown, including Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who featured in last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, who ranks No.4 with a $21 million haul.
Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy is No.3 on the list, and is one of the four on the list to earn over $20 million in the period. Helped by the success of Spy and Tammy, McCarthy has now become a true A-list star. »

Director Bryan Singer has never been shy about sharing photos and videos from the sets of any of his movies, a tradition that has continued in X-Men: Apocalypse. Ever since principal photography began in late April, the filmmaker has been sharing a number of photos and videos, and today, his latest video shows off a bit of movie magic. As it turns out, the superhero movie is using the same set as Roland Emmerich's upcoming gay rights drama Stonewall, with Bryan Singer showing how part of that bar set was turned into Storm's (Alexandra Shipp) Cairo apartment. Take a look at the director's statement from his Instagram page earlier today.
"Shoutout to @rolandemmerich who is finishing #idr #id4 in #Albuquerque. Looking forward to seeing his film #stonewall as we took his remaining #bar set and made it our #storm #cairo #apartment #1983 #xmen #apocalypse #xmenapocalypse #cinema #magic #setlife"

Like Tim Burton’s Superman Lives or James Cameron’s Spider-Man, we will never see the true version of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Among the many public problems the film has had in the last couple of weeks (see here, here, here, here, here and here), it was revealed by screenwriter Jeremy Slater that not much of his script was left in the final version. That version we eventually saw was re-written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) at the behest of Fox who worried Slater’s script was too expensive. Well, the chaps over at Birth.Movies.Death got a hold of Slater’s original script – which had Galactus, Mole Man, Herbie the Robot, Fantasticar and Doctor Doom as a Latverian dictator.
Here’s the breakdown:
As in the final film Reed goes to the Baxter Building as part of a science scholarship; there he meets Sue and Victor Von Doom. »

While we still have a few months until Wolverine 3 starts production in early 2016, Hugh Jackman recently shared new artwork from the highly-anticipated sequel, which will be his last time playing the beloved mutant. The artwork was accompanied by a request, where he asked fans what they want to see in the superhero sequel. The actor recently appeared on the Sydney Confidential Podcast, where he teased that the return of Victor Creed, a.k.a. Sabretooth was among the most popular request from the fans.
"There were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back. I must admit I was quite heartened by a number of people saying please don't make it the last, but look, I'm really excited about this last one. And if you're a comic book fan, the words "berserker rage" came up a lot. If you know Wolverine, you'll understand."
Sabretooth was originally played by »
Okay, so some of you will be more excited that Funko is releasing exclusive Pops, or perhaps even ReAction figures for X-Men: Apocalypse. But that sounds like a no brainer, as the collectibles are beyond popular at this point in time. But the greater take away from one of the company's employees being on set is the fact that this latest X-Men franchise sequel will include a fan favorite character no one was expecting. Yes, The Blob will return on the big screen in X-Men: Apocalypse when it kicks off the 2016 summer movie going season.
Benjamin Malartre Bureau, who appears to work for Funko in some capacity (or perhaps he's a super fan of the collectable, but that doesn't explain his presence on set), shared a photo of the exclusive X-Men: Apocalypse medallion on his Instagram, also revealing that The Blob was in Montreal when he visited the cast.

It’s been a great year for Universal, with two of their movies passing the $1 billion mark (Jurassic World and Furious 7) and their animated outing Minions set to pass the billion dollar mark in the next couple of weeks. And one of those billion dollar movies is still making a lot of bank.
Now in its 10th week of release, Jurassic World added another $1.2 million to its domestic box office (totaling up to $637.9 million), and has brought its worldwide figure to $968 million. All in all, Jurassic World now sits at $1.6 billion worldwide.
Pretty impressive! It’s unlikely to beat its position as the third biggest movie of all-time as it is sat behind Titanic ($2.1 billion) and Avatar ($2.7 billion).
