Cast your all-seeing eye on the upcoming metal musick movie American Satan.
The Illuminati, where would pop music be without it? Ever since legendary blues sacrifice Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil for better chops on those Crossroads, rock and roll has had a hellhound on its tale. The Beatles may have been taller than pretty much anything, or they may have been invented at the Tavistock Institute for wayward lyricists, but Jay Z, Madonna, Rihanna and former Christian singer Katy Perry tease the same in-jokes to this day. The new American Satan trailer is here to set the record straight, and the humble narrator of A Clockwork Orange is hungry for new talent.
American Satan stars Malcolm McDowell (Caligula, Time After Time, Cat People, O Lucky Man!), BooBoo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Mark Boone Jr. (Sons of Anarchy), Andy Biersack (Black Veiled »
X-Men fans will recognize the Dark Phoenix Saga as one of the most celebrated stories over the course of the characters’ existence. People who have watched the X-Men movies will remember that some of the saga was used for X-Men: The Last Stand, but since X-Men: Days of Future Past erased the events of that particular movie in-setting, there was the chance of a re-do. Now, that promise is closer and closer to being fulfilled, seeing as how X-Men: Dark Phoenix is expected to be released on November 2 of 2018. A short look at the cast members for X-Men:
X-Men: Dark Phoenix – This Cast Is Awesome »
- Nat Berman
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is really starting to come together and it looks like it is going to be absolutely packed with familiar mutant faces. Not only is the entire core cast set to return, but it looks like some smaller characters are going to be getting a little more screen time in X-Men 7 as well. If some recent social media activity is to be believed, it looks like Olivia Munn is going to be back once more as Psylocke.
As reported by Omega Underground, Olivia Munn recently took to her personal SnapChat to post an update, which confirms that she is in Montreal. That is significant because X-Men: Dark Phoenix is shooting in Montreal. Coincidence? Possibly, but it seems much more likely that she is going to suit back up as Psylocke. She didn't get a whole bunch of screen time in X-Men: Apocalypse and was last seen running off »

Don't expect any more cameos from the original X-Men cast. Famke Janssen looks back on the original X-Men movie...
It’s been nearly 17 years since the first X-Men movie, directed by Bryan Singer, arrived in cinemas and helped fuel a fresh boom in comic book movies. And as recently as this year, some of the cast from that film – Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart – were still playing the roles they debuted all that time ago, this time in Logan.
Chatting at Denver Comic-Con last week, Janssen looked back on the original X-Men, and reckons that original cast’s work is now done in the series.
“That was so amazing. I never knew – I don’t think any of us had any understanding »
It was confirmed last month that the highly-anticipated X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back the primary X-Men: Apocalypse cast, and today we have even more details about one of these iconic characters, Michael Fassbender's Magneto. While these details have yet to be confirmed, the latest report teases that Magneto may be leading a cult in this superhero adventure, which will be set in the 1990s. This will also lead to a drastic change in his costume for Dark Phoenix, and while we may have to wait some time for these details to be confirmed, there is a precedent of Magneto leading a cult in the Marvel comics.
Nerdist reports that Michael Fassbender will have a new costume that, "is meant to suggest the imagery commonly associated with cult leaders". While no specific details were given regarding the new look Michael Fassbender will be sporting in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the »
Several years ago, it was revealed that both Marvel Studios and Fox would be utilizing the character Quicksilver. This was back when Marvel Studios was churning out hit after hit (I guess that hasn’t changed), and while Fox had only recently just brought out X-Men: First Class. All other recent memories for fans were X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine — not good ones. As such, many were expecting Marvel Studios to utilize the character in a much better way.
Surprise, surprise, when X-Men: Days of Future Past came out, and Evan Peters’ interpretation of Quicksilver was one of the big scene-stealers of the film. Whereas Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron was just fast, Peters’ was Adhd in personality, and his attitude really reflected his abilities. Plus, the way Bryan Singer conveyed the speed — from Quicksilver’s perspective — created a great moment that he »

Now that Simon Kinberg has been confirmed to write and direct X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the cast is starting to come together. Canadian actor Lamar Johnson, best known for playing West on the hit Canadian TV series The Next Step, has signed on for the superhero follow-up, which will take place in the 1990s. It has also been confirmed that Evan Peters will return as Quicksilver, reprising his role from 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past and last year's X-Men: Apocalypse.
The Hollywood Reporter broke this casting news this week, although they couldn't confirm what character Lamar Johnson is playing. This comes just a few days after an unconfirmed report claiming actress Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the primary villain, Shi'ar Empress Lilandra, but there hasn't been any confirmation that she has officially signed on to join the cast yet. There have even been rumors that Angelina Jolie was »

Halle Berry says she's "disappointed" by the lack Oscar diversity in the years following her historic Best Actress victory, but she recognizes the significance of her win.
Recently, Berry reflected on her Oscar speech during an interview with Teen Vogue, and said that her triumph in 2002 "meant nothing" because it didn't seem to open the door for women of color in Hollywood, as she hoped it would.
Speaking with Et's Kevin Frazier at a pop-up screening of her upcoming thriller, Kidnap, at the Essence Festival in New Orleans on Thursday, the actress clarified her comments explaining, "Of course it meant something, you saw me up there I was speechless."

As Evan Peters proved to be quite the scene-stealer in both X-men: Days Of Future Past and X-men: Apocalypse, I'd actually be a little shocked if he wasn't going to reprise the role of Quicksilver for X-men: Dark Phoenix. As reported by THR, Peters has signed on to appear alongside his fellow X-Men in the upcoming sequel, so you can rest assured that the mutant speedster... Read More »

For a film that was quietly nudged toward the sidelines as Deadpool 2 and Josh Boone’s New Mutants spinoff coalesced, X-Men: Dark Phoenix has now exploded into life, recruiting a host of familiar mutants and a director in Simon Kinberg, one of the many veterans of Fox’s grand cinematic franchise.
Set in the early 1990s, Dark Phoenix mines inspiration from the eponymous comic book by focusing on the young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) who, after a brief spell in space, is overpowered by the titular cosmic entity. Since its inception, the Dark Phoenix saga has struck a chord with the X-Men faithful, so it’s small wonder why fans are beginning to look toward the film’s November 2018 release date with hushed excitement.

“This is for every nameless, faceless woman of color who now has a chance because this door has been opened,” a triumphant Halle Berry announced when she won the Best Actress Oscar for “Monster’s Ball” in 2002. Berry’s acceptance speech was recently quoted back to her by Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth at this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Berry was the first black woman to receive the honor — and after 15 years, she’s still the only black woman with the award.
“It’s troubling, to say the least,” Berry told Welteroth about the lack of change since her win. “It was probably one of my lowest professional moments,” she added, referencing the two consecutive years of #OscarsSoWhite.
“I sat there and I thought, ‘Wow, [my speech] really meant nothing, that meant nothing. I thought it meant something but I think that meant nothing,’” Berry explained. “And I was profoundly hurt by that and saddened by that and it inspired me to try and get involved in other ways.”
None of the acting nominees at the 2015 or 2016 Oscar ceremonies were people of color — Berry described the severe lack of inclusivity as a “blackout” — which, in turn, inspired the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag and conversations about racial inequality in Hollywood. As Berry pointed out, the lack of opportunity onscreen and off is why people of color are often shut out from award nods.
“I want to start directing, I want to star producing more, I want to start being a part of making more opportunities for people of color,” Berry said. “We have to start telling stories that include us and if stories don’t include us, we have to start asking, ‘Why can’t that be a person of color? Why can’t that white male character be a black woman? Why can’t it?’ We have to start pushing the envelope and asking these questions.”
Berry has served as producer on several of her projects, including the upcoming thriller “Kidnap,” the sci-fi series “Extant,” and the multiple personality disorder drama “Frankie & Alice.” Her recent screen credits include “Kevin Hart: What Now?” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and “The Call.” Berry will appear next in “Kings,” the English-language debut from “Mustang” helmer Deniz Gamze Ergüven, and this fall’s star-studded action comedy “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”
“Kidnap,” in which Berry plays the mother of an abducted child, hits theaters August 4.
Head over to Teen Vogue to watch Berry’s entire conversation with Welteroth. The “X-Men” actress discusses her history of trailblazing, the Black Lives Matter movement, and her racial identity.
Quote of the Day: Halle Berry Talks the Lack of Change Since Her Historic 2002 Oscar Win was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The “X-Men” franchise looked like it was in trouble for a minute. “X-Men: Apocalypse” was a disappointment financially when compared to its predecessor “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” (it earned 28% less worldwide) and all its stars, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and perhaps to a lesser extent, James McAvoy (who seemed like he might stick around) all appeared to be leaving the series now that their contracts were up.

The recent X-Men movies have been a massive success for 20th Century Fox. Kicking off with X-Men: First Class in 2011, then X-Men: Days Of Future Past three years later, and then last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the films have grossed a whopping $1.6 billion over the three movies, so it comes at no surprise that the studio are pushing ahead with a fourth film in the series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is set to roll into production soon. We thought we’d assemble everything we know about the planned superhero movie so far. Check it all out below.
We’ll kick things off with the cast. The good news is that the likes of Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) are all returning for the fourth movie in the series, as will James McAvoy, who once again will play the role of Charles Xavier/ Professor X. Sophie Turner will be playing the role of Jean Grey/ Dark Phoenix are rumours suggest that Jessica Chastain will play the villain in the movie (these rumours are as yet unconfirmed).
Chastain would play the role of Lilandra in the movie. According to the official Marvel Wiki, Lilandra is ‘a member of the royal family of the extraterrestrial Shi’ar Empire, Princess-Majestrix Lilandra Neramani was born on the Shi’ar homeworld known as the Aerie. The eldest heir to the Shi’ar throne was Lilandra’s older sister, Cal’syee. However, for her crime of killing her mother and one of her sisters, Cal’syee was denied the throne and exiled into space. Cal’syee’s younger brother D’ken was appointed majestor (emperor) instead.’

Chastain’s addition to the cast would lend it some considerable weight, and we hope her involvement in confirmed in the coming few days.
Following on from Matthew Vaughn, who helmed ‘First Class’, and Bryan Singer, who took the reigns of ‘Days Of Future Past’ and ‘Apocalypse’, Simon Kinberg will direct Dark Phoenix. Kinberg is a talented individual who has a long-standing relationship with the X-Men franchise. He has written X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse and was a producer on all of those movies, as well as X-Men: First Class, Deadpool and this year’s massive hit Logan. He will also co-produce the upcoming X-Force, Gambit and The New Mutants. X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be his directorial debut, but will all of his experience, the franchise is in very good hands.
