After comic book properties had acquired an undisputed hold over the multiplex, the next step was Marvel Studios’ establishment of an interconnected cinematic universe – mirroring that of the comic book world – as a far-reaching way to develop many different franchises across a variety of different media outlets.
The other major studios with big-name comic book properties have followed suit, with Warner Bros. (Batman vs. Superman) and Sony (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) developing interconnected movie universes based on their titles. Fox is doing the same, with Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theaters this May (followed by X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016) and director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four reboot releasing in June of 2015.
After a long development period, Trank’s ...

2016 will see the release of the follow-up to X-Men franchise, titled Apocalypse, alluding to the arrival of the ultimate mutant villain En Sabah Nur Aka Apocalypse. The threat of Apocalypse has loomed over the X-Men since his creation by Louise Simonson and Jackson Guice in 1986. Fans have been wondering when we would get the chance to see the eternal mutant villain on the big screen, and thankfully we don’t have to wait too much longer. Bryan Singer, who returned to the franchise to direct the upcoming Days of Future Past, will also be helming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Little is known about the film, since much of its storyline will presumably relate to the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past. We do know X-Men: Apocalypse will feature the First Class era of characters, but Singer has proven already with Days of Future Past that he isn’t afraid of a big mutant cast, »

Jennifer Lawrence and her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, have been private about their on-again, off-again relationship, in spite of dating at one of the highest points in her career. The couple (and X-Men: First Class costars) dated from 2011 to early 2013 - during which time The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook were both released - and rekindled things last July. But fame hasn't changed Jennifer, according to Nicholas, who opened up about their relationship in the Spring issue of VMan magazine: "The privacy thing obviously changes, but the rest pretty much stays the same. It's like that thing whereby you don't believe your own hype. Enjoy the good times, but don't get swept away with it. I think that's something she's capable of doing, and that's what makes her special, but yeah, it is very odd, and I am just kind of a bystander in many ways. It is well deserved for her. »

"The privacy thing obviously changes but the rest pretty much stays the same," the 24-year-old actor said of their relationship, which began when they met while filming "X-Men: First Class" in 2011.
"It's like that thing whereby you don't believe your own hype. Enjoy the good times, but don't get swept away with it. And I think that's something she's capable of doing and that's what makes her special, but yeah, it is very odd, and I am just kind of a bystander in many ways."

George Lucas once said that "the sound and music are 50% of the entertainment in a movie", and a recent trip to see Gravity backed up by a Dolby Atmos sound system left us very much in agreement with him.
What exactly is Atmos? Think of it as a totally different way of doing cinema sound, where rather than looking at individual channels of audio, sound exists in a 3D space that wraps completely around your head.
For visual effects-packed movies like Gravity, it can completely change the cinema-going experience. People talk about movies that you "must see at the cinema", and pairing up Gravity with Atmos definitely puts it in that category.
The system works by placing speakers both above your head, as well as behind the cinema screen itself, and all the way around to the back of the room. The end result is a sound setup which lets »

Hoult will star as Stephen Stelfox, a 27 year old A&R man carving out a career in the London music industry, trying to find the next massive hit powered by cocaine, alcohol and prostitutes.
The book has an American Psycho-esque tone to it and if Hoult can bring the ferocious vulgarity of the character, we are in for a treat.

While we're big fans of the work that comes from the collectible arthouse Mondo, there's plenty of other great artists out there whose work is showcased elsewhere on the web. Blurppy is one such destination for some truly stunning artwork, and the site recently held a "Poster Posse" where they had dozens of artists do their own interpretation of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Some of these would make excellent Mondo posters and show some truly amazing skills. We've posted some of our favorites below, many featuring the Sentinels finally getting their due diligence, and you're definitely going to wish these were on your wall. Here's some selections from Blurppy's Poster Posse for X-Men: Days of Future Past (via SlashFilm): You can see tons more X-Men: Days of Future Past artwork at this link and this link.

Rob takes a look back at Brett Ratner's X-Men 3, to see if it's better than it's generally given credit for...
Any regular visitors to the growing universes of superhero films will know that X-Men: The Last Stand is one of the least-loved instalments since the genre came back with a bang in 2000.
It is seen by many as a hugely disappointing end to what could have been a near-perfect movie trilogy after all the expert world-building by Bryan Singer in the first two instalments.
Rotten Tomatoes’ consensus on the film is that new director Brett Ratner had ‘replaced the heart and emotion (and character development) of the previous X-Men films with more action and explosions’, averaging the scores of its ‘Top Critics’ at a measly 41%.
However, it cannot be said that it was in any way ‘the last stand’ for mutancy at the movies. »
New X Men,Days Of Future Past 3D filming details & more revealed by Director Bryan Singer. As previously reported, Collider got to chat it up with "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" movie director, Bryan Singer (left), and he dished out a lot of spoiler teasers for the movie. In this particular segment, he talked out filming with 3D,2D, and more. It turns out that the complex action scenes were shot without native stereo. Bryan explained, when asked about shooting in 3D: "Most of it, the only stuff we don’t shoot in native stereo is complex action stuff. Complex stuff where we’re just trying to keep the camera more agile and we’ll post dimensionalize that, but anything dramatic or characters. Today is a very rare day where I’m shooting 2D because you can’t get the cameras, lenses, and rigs in the jet, but normally, we »
When news broke Monday that Avengers star Scarlett Johansson was expecting her first child, movie fans wondered: What’s going to happen to Avengers: Age of Ultron? More importantly, what’s going to happen to Black Widow in Age of Ultron? With principal photography set to start in the next month and Johansson reportedly due in August, it seems as though the actress’ pregnancy will align directly with the film’s shooting window.
In other words: that signature outfit and a baby bump won’t exactly mix.
So what’s a franchise to do? We’re pretty confident they wouldn »
