X-men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer returns to helm the next installment of 20th Century Fox's popular X-men film franchise, scheduled for theatrical release in 2016. Taking place in the 1980s after the events of X-men: Days Of Future Past, the upcoming film will introduce the fan favorite X-Men villain from Marvel Comics, created by Louise and Walter Simonson. Born in Egypt circa 3,000 BC, Apocalypse is considered the world's first mutant. Over the millennia he's learned to forcibly evolve in order to survive and ultimately conquer the world along with his Four Horsemen. Via his Instagram page, Singer has revealed yet another addition to the film's ever growing cast: Lana Condor, who will play Jubilee. Jubilation "Jubilee" Lee, created in 1989 by Chris Claremont and artist »

Though she currently has no credits on her IMDb page at this time, Lana Condor's first entry will be huge! The virtually unknown actress has landed a prime role in X-Men: Apocalypse. She will play one of the youngest team members to ever fight alongside Professor Xavier and his school of extraordinary students. That's right, Lana Condor is taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee.
While X-Men: Apocalypse is confirmed to take place in the 80s, Jubilee didn't become popular in the comic books until the early 1990s, often playing sidekick to Wolverine. She was first introduced in Uncanny X-Men #244, which was published in 1989. Created by iconic X-men writer Chris Claremont and artist Marc Silvestri, the character's mutation allows her to create and control energy plasmodia that are similar to fireworks. The actress has appeared in the movies before, first in 2000's X-Men played by Katrina Florence and »
While the X-Men franchise may be due for a cast changeover in the near future, director Bryan Singer is ensuring that the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, is stacked with fan favorites. Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult are due to reprise their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, but Apocalypse marks the third and final film for which they’re under contract, so they have the ability to depart the franchise after this movie if they wish. Indeed, Lawrence recently revealed that Apocalypse will be her final X-Men movie, but the ensemble is also being filled out by younger versions of plenty of new mutants. The latest addition is actress Lana Condor, who Singer revealed on Instagram will be playing the character Jubilation Lee—aka Jubilee. She joins previously announced new additions Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Alexandra Shipp (Storm »

It looks like we can add another mutant to the ever-expanding roster of X-Men: Apocalypse, with Bryan Singer taking to Instagram to reveal that newcomer Lana Condor will play the character Jubilation Lee, a.k.a. Jubilee…
Jubilee has previously made cameo appearances in the original three X-Men movies, with Katrina Florece portraying her in X-Men and Kea-Wong appearing in X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, while she was also considered for a part in X-Men: Days of Future Past [check out some concept art here].

Following yesterday's new poster for Fantastic Four, which showed a vague display of powers from the quartet of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, we have a new look at the team, but this one reveals a bit more. While the teaser trailer and even yesterday's poster have obscured our look at The Thing from any angle other than behind is naked stone body, an international banner has gone up that gives us our first good lock at the clobbering hero from the front. And he looks...exactly like you'd expect him to look. Hopefully he's less of a punchline than the one Michael Chiklis played before. Look! Here's the international banner for Fantastic Four from Instagram (via Superhero Hype): You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Trank's Fantastic Four right here. Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by »

After a couple of trade magazine newsbreaks, we’re back in more normal territory for the latest casting announcement for X-Men: Apocalypse. To whit, director Bryan Singer’s Twitter and Instagram feed. He has now revealed that young newcomer Lana Condor (a superheroic name in itself) will be playing Jubilee in the new film. I'd officially like to welcome our newest mutant #JubilationLee, #Jubilee @LanaCondor to #Xmen #ApocalypseA photo posted by Bryan Singer (@bryanjaysinger) on Mar 25, 2015 at 11:57am PDTContinuing the Apocalypse trend of featuring X-Men team members who appeared in the pre-First Class days, Jubilee has been played by Katrina Florece and Kea Wong across X-Men, X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, with Condor now taking over the role. Concept art for X-Men: Days Of Future Past showed Jubilee was under consideration for the previous adventure, but with that film already so full of characters, the smart choice was »
After causing quite a stir with his rather splendid CGI proof of concept video last week, filmmaker Ruairi Robinson (The Last Days on Mars) has nabbed a couple of producers for his planned sci-fi feature The Leviathan, with Neill Blomkamp (Chappie) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) boarding the project.
As per Deadline, The Leviathan is set in the early 22nd century, and “mankind has colonized many worlds in a time when travel faster than the speed of light has been made possible by the harvesting of exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those who take part in the hunt for the matter are mostly involuntary labor.”
You can check out the proof of concept video here…

A24 Films has released the first trailer for director John Maclean’s upcoming western Slow West which sees Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past) starring alongside Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Ben Mendelsohn (Starred Up), Rory McCann (Game of Thrones) and Caren Pistorius (The Most Fun You Can Have Dying). Check it out below after the official synopsis…
At the end of the nineteenth century, 16-year-old Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) journeys across the American frontier in search of the woman he loves. He is joined by Silas (Michael Fassbender), a mysterious traveler, and hotly pursued by an outlaw along the way.
Slow West is set for release May 15th in the States and June 26th in the UK.

**Spoilers ahead** If somehow you've never seen a blockbuster superhero movie, cameo appearances are the name of the game, so it should come as no surprise that "X-Men: Apocalypse" may feature a few familiar faces stopping by to say, "Hi." And really, if you saw "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," this should hardly be a shock. Latino Review reports that Channing Tatum's Gambit, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, and Halle Berry's Storm will all show up in 'Apocalypse,' which starts shooting next month. Gambit and Wolverine make sense — both have upcoming solo movies, so we presume they will factor in some kind of tease for those stories. As for Storm...well, maybe it'll be nice to have her be part of the gang too. Of course, none of this is confirmed, but it's not a huge leap to imagine this could happen. Bryan Singer is back behind the camera, »

While there's still much we don't know about X-Men: Apocalypse, it has been confirmed that the story will be set in the 1980s and it will round out the trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story is said to focus primarily on the younger mutants from those aforementioned movies, but a new rumor surfaced today that reveals X-Men: Apocalypse will also feature two cameos from fan-favorite X-Men characters, along with the introduction of a new mutant. There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk. If you are not averse to spoilers, take a look at what Latino Review's El Mayimbe has to say, which includes the production start date for X-Men: Apocalypse.
We know that Bryan Singer’s next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, will once again focus on the First Class team rather than the old guard as he did with X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that’s not to say that some of the older X-Men folk will be shying away from the movie.
According to the chaps over at Latino-Review, principal photography of X-Men: Apocalypse is set to start next month and among those called in are Hugh Jackman to reprise his role as Wolverine (no surprises there), Halle Berry as Storm (some surprises there) and Channing Tatum as Gambit (many surprises there!). Other rumours also state that Sir Ian McKellen is also going to come in to feature as Magneto once again.
With Tatum, it makes sense for 20th Century Fox to use this movie as a launch pad for Gambit’s solo movie, which is set for »

Before the film even premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the New Zealand production Slow West was picked up by A24 for distribution, and the film starring Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) will arrive this summer. And now the first trailer has arrived for the story that follows 16-year-old Jay Cavendish (Smit-McPhee) journeying across the American frontier in search of the woman he loves. He's joined by Silas (Fassbender), a mysterious traveler, and hotly pursued by an outlaw named Payne (Ben Mendelsohn) along the way. Here's the first trailer for John Maclean's Slow West, originally in high def from Apple: Above - first poster via IMPAwards for A24's release of John Maclean's Slow West in theaters this summer. Slow West is written and directed by John Maclean, former member of the music group Beta Band. »

If you're still trying to get your jaw off the floor after watching The Leviathan proof of concept trailer that debuted last week from Ruairi Robinson, then you might want to sit down before taking this in: Simon Kinberg and Neill Blomkamp are looking to bring Robinson's stunning vision of the flying colossal creature to the big screen.
According to /Film, Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is producing and Blomkamp (Chappie, upcoming new Alien film) is executive producing The Leviathan feature film that will be directed by Ruairi Robinson (The Last Days on Mars) from a screenplay by Jim Uhls (Fight Club). Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further details. In case you haven't seen it yet, we have the proof of concept trailer for The Leviathan.

According to Latino-Review's @umbertogonzalez, principal photography on X-Men: Apocalypse will kick off in Montreal on April 28th. That's not the most exciting news however as he also reveals that the movie will feature cameos from Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, Halle Berry's Storm, and Channing Tatum as Gambit. We've heard that Sir Ian McKellen will return as Magneto, so perhaps the X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up will return to that new continuity which was glimpsed at the end of last year's "inbetweenquel". Gambit showing up before his solo movie later in 2016 also makes sense, but will Jackman get just a cameo or a key role? We'll have to wait and see for now »
One week ago we posted an amazing short film in our Cool Videos column, showcasing Ruairi Robinson's The Leviathan. The short, while light on story, displayed some exceptional effects and camera work. The short followed that of slave labor hunting down a massive creature. Space whaling, if you will. Well, it looks as those we weren't the only ones impressed as visionary director Neill Blomkamp (Chappie) and uber-producer Simon Kinberg (X-men: Days Of Future Past) are looking »

Since she was cast in the role of Mystique for Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, it would be fair to say that Jennifer Lawrence's career has taken off somewhat. She has an Oscar on her mantelpiece for Silver Linings Playbook, and she's become one of the biggest movie stars in the world, courtesy of The Hunger Games series.
She returns for the third time to play Mystique in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, which starts shooting shortly. And whilst many of her colleagues in the cast have held the door open to keep on going in the X-Men world, it sounds as though Jennifer Lawrence may be calling time on her X-Men days.
In a chat with MTV, Lawrence was asked if she thought X-Men: Apocalypse »
After 14 long years, the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, is almost here! Chris Pratt (Parks & Recreation; Guardians Of The Galaxy) is set to lead a stellar cast that also features Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3), Vincent D'Onofrio (Daredevil), Jake Johnson (Let's Be Cops), Irrfan Khan (Life Of Pi), Nick Robinson (The Kings Of Summer), Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days Of Future Past), Brian Tee (The Wolverine), and Judy Greer (Ant-Man) in key roles. Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) directed the highly anticipated sequel. We've been able to catch a few glimpses at one of the film's antagonists, the Indominus Rex, and it really looks like Pratt's 'Owen Grady' is going to have his work cut out for him this June. Last year, he had the help of his Guardians of the Galaxy team (and a few killer dance moves) to help him »
“It is my last one,” Lawrence said when asked if it would be her final X-men film. (She drops the bomb around the 3:25 mark.)
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will also star series regulars including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne, plus Oscar Isaac and Kodi Smit-McPhee, both new to the franchise. Sir Ian McKellan or Patrick Stewart will not be returning, however. Bryan Singer will direct.

Last week, it was reported that X-Men: Apocalypse will most likely mark Nicholas Hoult's final performance as Beast for the franchise. Now, in a new interview with MTV, co-star Jennifer Lawrence is stating the same thing. Though, where Nicholas Hoult claimed he'd return if asked, Jennifer Lawrence seems pretty confident that this latest franchise sequel will mark her last appearance as shape shifter Mystique. When asks if she is done after her third go at the character, she quite simply states:
"It is my last one. Yes."
Bryan Singer is set to return for X-Men: Apocalypse, which is confirmed to take place in the 80s. While no other story details have been released, it has long been confirmed that the movie will serve as the end of a trilogy which began with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While it is pretty »
Last week X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Hoult revealed that his contract as Beast is up with next year’s Bryan Singer-helmed sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, although the British actor admitted that he’s open to the idea of signing on for more mutant adventures.
Well, it seems that Jennifer Lawrence’s contract to play the shape-shifting mutant Mystique is also set to expire after Apocalypse, but unlike Hoult, it seems she’s ready to call time on the franchise, with the Oscar winner telling MTV News that: “It is my last one, actually.”
Since signing on to play Mystique in X-Men: First Class, Lawrence has become one of the biggest stars in the world (and the most-bankable of 2014) – thanks in no small part to her role in both the X-Men and The Hunger Games franchises, as well as her Academy Award win for »
