20th Century Fox
Marvel Studios has the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Warner Bros. has their newly launched DC Extended Universe. 20th Century Fox, on the other hand, are looking at creating their very own X-Men Universe, expanding a franchise which for years has revolved solely around the core team and Wolverine into an entire series of movies (and possibly even a TV show).
While the studio has yet to announce a slate of X-Men movies spanning the next five years or so like their rivals, they do have a number already on the way, and many others in various stages of development. Fox may have made some mistakes in the past, but things have been looking up for their mutant characters recently, and while the Fantastic Four’s role in the X-Men Universe has been thrown into doubt following the epic failure of Josh Trank’s reboot, the X-Men look »

After frantically sprinting from the press to the general admission line and waiting in the queue hall for hours with the help of my Jewel (Jessica Jones’ old superhero identity) cosplaying friend Julia, I had the privilege of attending the Marvel Netflix panel about Daredevil Season 2 and Jessica Jones Season 1, which is set to premiere on November 20. The panel looked back at the first season of Daredevil while showing the first footage of the upcoming second season, and the lucky fans in the audience also had the chance to watch the first episode of Jessica Jones after a discussion with the cast and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Dexter).
Before the panel officially started, moderator Jeph Loeb, who is Marvel’s Head of TV, trotted on stage with the Marvel Studios fanfare playing in the background with actors Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, and Mike Colter, who play Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage »

The first teaser trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse debuted at Sdcc 2015 this past summer. And while it leaked shortly thereafter, the footage has never been made public. If we're to believe the latest statements from director Bryan Singer, we won't get to see an official trailer until March, which is just two months before the movie makes it's way into theaters. This is close to what 20th Century Fox did for the Fantastic Four remake, releasing the first teaser very late in the game. According to the filmmaker, the trailer will actually show off some of the end credit sequence from X-Men: Apocalypse, which is an homage to the entire franchise up until now.
Bryan Singer was speaking at the San Pedro International Film Festival. And he revealed that X-Men: Apocalypse has the longest running time of any mutant adventure thus far. But there is a very good reason for that. »
Filming on X-Men: Apocalypse, the next installment in the series, concluded during the summer, and since then things have been relatively quiet on the mutant front. This week, however, 20th Century Fox released a new synopsis that resets the story. As discovered by Coming Soon as part of a promotional partnership with popular candy M&M's (see photo below), the synopsis lays the groundwork for the conclusion of a trilogy that began with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past: “Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. "Upon awakening after thousands of years...

So far, most of the attention has gone to villain Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) - whose appearance has attracted derision from die-hard fans of the comics - but now it's J-Law's turn (after his backstory is explained, anyway):
"Since the dawn of civilisation, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.
"Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.
"As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, »

Kinberg has played a part in the X-Men franchise for many years and spoke with THR about what the future... Read More »

Is Jennifer Lawrence now heading up the X-Men team? Here's the detailed synopsis for the next X-Men film...
This piece contains potential spoilers for X-Men: Apocalypse.
Few comic book movies have as much business to get through as next year's X-Men: Apocalyse. Bryan Singer's follow-up to X-Men: Days Of Future Past will tie up the loose ends of the trilogy that was started with Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, whilst also presumably setting up the future of the X-Men movie univese.
Furthermore, there's the small matter of roughly two trillion characters to squeeze in. No pressure there whatsoever.
A new synopsis for the movie has just been released, and as you're about to read, it looks as if the emphasis is shifting onto Jennifer Lawrence's Raven for the new film. Plus, read right to the end....
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. »

This story first appeared in the Oct. 16 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. To receive the magazine, click here to subscribe. Simon Kinberg isn't opposed to making small movies. The tentpole maestro behind Cinderella (produced), Sherlock Holmes (wrote) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (produced and wrote) says he's attempted an intimate drama, but inevitably it turned epic. "When I wrote Mr. & Mrs. Smith in film school [at Columbia University], I was trying to write my version of Ordinary People or Kramer vs. Kramer — people in a bad marriage who have to get through problems.

Gomez-Rejon, who this year had huge acclaim with Sundance favourite Me and Girl and the Dying Girl, cited creative differences for his reason to leave the project, for which New Line had bought the worldwide rights to only a few months ago.
The film has already had somewhat of a coloured history already, with original stars Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Rooney Mara (Her) leaving the project during its pre-production. Will Smith (Focus) is now on-board the film with his production company, Overbrook Entertainment co-producing with Anonymous Content, among others.
Collateral Beauty stars Smith as “as a New York advertising executive who experiences a personal tragedy and the subsequent unconventional plan from his colleagues to break him out of his depression.”

The film focused on a group of medical students who discover a way of entering the afterlife and attempt to resurrect themselves.
Watch a trailer for Flatliners below: »
Sick of hearing about remakes coming to TV? Well, never fear, as Hollywood is still bringing them to the big screen as well!
The latest is Flatliners, a remake of the 1990 sci-fi thriller which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon. It revolved around a group of medical students who journeyed into the afterworld to find meaning in their own lives before being resuscitated in the nick of time. Of course, things go horribly wrong.
It’s a cool premise, to be sure, and one which has a lot of potential if handled properly. There are also a long list of other reasons to be excited about this one, too, including the fact that the director of the original Swedish Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Niels Arden Oplev, is set to take the helm, with Ben Ripley (Source Code) writing the script.
If that wasn’t enough to get you interested, »

Now that the car crash that was X-3, or X-Men: The Last Stand has been expunged from cinematic history (making it possibly the only example of a movie franchise deliberately redacting its own canon to get rid of the crappy bits), there’s a real chance that we could get ourselves a mutant movieverse worthy of the letter X.
That ‘we’, of course, means fans of the X-Men comic books. We’re a hardy breed, having adapted over decades of patient reading to put up with clones, twins, aliens, demons and more time travel shenanigans than anyone should have to deal with who isn’t being chased by a Terminator.
In terms of the films, not only have we endured the indignity of Brett Ratner’s coarse, inexpert pawing at some of the greatest comics characters of all time, but we’ve gritted our teeth through the first Wolverine movie and wondered, »

M Night Shyamalan's new movie "The Visit" has already grossed over $53 million on a budget of $5 million. In an attempt to return his better day, the director is working on anew supernatural thriller and has been hoping to reteam with his "Signs" star Joaquin Phoenix. Phoenix recently dropped out of the project, with sources claiming that the deal never got past the discussion stage. But now comes word that James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is in talks to replace Phoenix. Very little is known about the new film. In fact, both the title and the plot are being kept a secret. The only thing we know is that Jason Blum will be producing. »

M. Night Shyamalan redeemed himself somewhat with The Visit last month, and now he’s already hard at work on his next – currently untitled – supernatural thriller. While his latest movie was made up of relative unknowns, the filmmaker can still attract A-List talent when he chooses, as it has been revealed today that James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is in talks to star.
The Scottish actor actually looks set to take the role which had been saved for Joaquin Phoenix (which would have reunited him and Shyamalan after 2002’s Signs), but The Hollywood Reporter reveals that no deal was ever made and things never got past the discussions phase between the two parties.
The plot of this supernatural thriller is unfortunately a closely guarded secret for the time being, as is who McAvoy will end up playing. He’ll next be seen in Victor Frankenstein alongside Daniel Radcliffe though, »

This year’s Oscar race for best visual effects is, as ever, loaded with summer blockbuster fare, prestige pics with eye-popping visuals and layered theatrical experiences that beg for a slowing of the inevitable march to a standard of home viewing. Coming out of the hot months, where a number of these contenders tend to plant their flag, it seems as good a place as any to begin our weekly dissection of the Academy’s 10 below-the-line categories.
At the top of the list would have to be Robert Zemeckis’ “The Walk,” which made waves last weekend after a New York Film Festival debut. Working with supervisor Kevin Baillie (“Flight”) and with effects house Atomic Fiction leading the charge, it could be a threat to win the prize at the end of the day. Even if the tone of the film’s first two acts didn’t work for a great many, »

If everything goes according to plan, Kingsman 2 will shoot this spring. But there is a major problem that needs to be worked out first. Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton has become a hot commodity in Hollywood following the film's release earlier this year, and he is being sought by some of the biggest studios for quite a few high priority projects. He's actually landed one of these projects, and it could cause a scheduling issue for 20th Century Fox and it's impending sequel.
Taron Egerton is set to lead Robin Hood: Origins for Lionsgate, which is going to start shooting this February. The film likely won't be wrapped by the time Fox wants production to begin on Kingsman 2. Right now, it looks like there will be a conflict with the sequel's start date. But the hope is this issue can be resolved soon.
