It’s been two weeks since “X-Men: Days Of Future Past – The Rogue Cut” hit home video and while fans continue to parse through the changes of the new alternate version of the 2014 blockbuster film, the fine folks at CineFix are digging even deeper to find the differences between Bryan Singer’s superhero film and its source material. In its latest installment of “What’s the Difference?” Cinefix spends nearly fifteen minutes comparing the 1981 two-issue “Days of Future Past” storyline written by Chris Claremont and John Byrne for “The Uncanny X-Men” with the script by Simon Kinberg. Cinefix’s video gets very in depth with its subject matter, even explaining the significance of Kitty Pryde being the time traveller in the comic while also defending the choice of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine going in her place in the Singer film. Overall, the video is a great look at the changes »

While there’s still no sign of the “Deadpool” trailer that took Comic-Con by storm earlier this month, 20th Century Fox has thrown fans a bone by releasing three new photos from Ryan Reynolds’ hotly anticipated superhero film, courtesy of the U.K.’s Empire magazine.
We’ve seen Marvel’s infamous “Merc with a Mouth” in costume already, thanks to previously released promotional stills, but one of the new images offers our first glimpse of Reynolds’ Wade Wilson out of his signature red and black armor with his paramour Vanessa Carlysle (Morena Baccarin), aka Copycat, a shape-shifting mutant who was associated with the X-Men offshoot group X-Force in the comics.
This will be Reynolds’ second time behind Deadpool’s mask; the character was last seen onscreen in 2009’s poorly received X-Men spinoff, »

Chicago – The situation with in-country immigrants is not just an issue in the United States. The new French film “Samba” focuses on the ongoing status of immigrants in Paris, who often do menial jobs while surviving under the radar of immigration laws. French Actor Omar Sy portrays the title character with insight and humor.
This is Sy’s (pronounced “see”) second film with co-writer/directors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano, after the well-received “The Intouchables’ in 2011. The French born actor – of parents who emigrated from Senegal in Africa – has an background that is similar to the characters he has portrayed for Nakache and Toledano, and he adds a touch of realism, in addition to redemption, to these roles. He recently broke into American films in a huge way, with prominent appearances in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and this summer’s “Jurassic World.”
Omar Sy is the Title Character in »

Hugh Jackman has posted a picture on Twitter teasing the upcoming third Wolverine solo film, which will mark the actor’s final performance as the character.
The picture shows Wolverine holding up one claw, with “#OneLastTime” written next to him. See it here…
Jackman, who is undeniably the face of the X-Men film franchise, has popped up in either large or small roles in each X-Men film so far, from 2000’s X-Men to 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
At this year’s Comic-Con, Jackman dropped a hint that Wolverine 3 may tell the popular Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Wolverine 3, which has still not received an official name, will be hitting theaters on March 3, 2017. The Wolverine director James Mangold will be returning to helm the film, while Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier/Professor X) is rumored to appear alongside Jackman.

During Comic-Con earlier this month, Hugh Jackman dropped by 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel, where he confirmed, once again, that Wolverine 3 will be the last time he plays the iconic Logan character. 20th Century Fox has set a March 3, 2017 release date, with James Mangold returning to the helm after directing 2013's The Wolverine. Earlier today, Hugh Jackman posted new teaser art for Wolverine 3, which features the actor holding up just one of his adamantium claws, with the hashtag #OneLastTime. The actor also reached out to fans, asking them to tell him what they want to see in Wolverine 3, in 50 words or less.
"My last time putting on the claws. What do you want to see happen? 50 words or less. I'll read as many as I can."
No story details have been given yet, but it was rumored that the beloved comic book story line Old Man Logan would be used for this superhero movie. »
With production on X-Men: Apocalypse still going strong in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared yet another photo through his Instagram account, showcasing one of the massive practical sets. The filmmaker is seen being dwarfed by an Egyptian statue. But he wouldn't offer any details about the set itself or how it fits into the X-Men: Apocalypse story. He did say on his social media account that, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse."
This photo comes just a few days after Bryan Singer posted a photo with Sir Patrick Stewart on the set, which fueled speculation that he would return in a cameo role as Charles Xavier. The actor wasn't seen in costume, but he was watching footage with the director and another filmmaker, Jason Reitman, who was putting together a live read of The Big Lebowski at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. It was never »

An old mutant getting a fresh face in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" is that of Cyclops. James Marsden played the role in the original trilogy and returned for a cameo in last year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".
In the new take though, it's Tye Sheridan taking on the part and he was asked by Indiewire how his version differs to that of previous iterations:
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where I've met a lot of my characters -- in these sort of young life transitions where they're struggling to figure things out about themselves.
He's now learning about being a mutant and trying to handle his superhero powers. The arc for »

Last year, X-Men: Days of Future Past brought mutants together from the original X-Men franchise, and from the 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class. Next year, fans will be introduced to more younger versions of iconic characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, with Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Jubilee (Lana Condor), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcralwer (Kodi Smit-McPhee). While discussing his new indie film The Stanford Prison Experiment, Tye Sheridan offered some insight into his Cyclops character, played by James Marsden in the original trilogy. When asked how his version of Cyclops is different than previous iterations, the actor had this to say, in an interview with IndieWire.
"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where »
Yes, Patrick Stewart is confirmed to have arrived on the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse this weekend. But don't get too excited. It doesn't look like he'll be appearing as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) in any capacity. Instead, it simply looks like he is visiting his old director Bryan Singer. And it sounds like the pair are joining director Jason Reitman for one of his legendary live script reads. No, it's not a rendition of 2000's X-Men. The trio will be enjoying a live reading of the Coen Brothers' classic The Big Lebowski.
Back in January, Patrick Stewart confirmed that neither he nor Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. The entirety of the film takes place in 1983, the same weekend Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi opened in theaters. There is no reason for the older versions »
In general, superhero movies are big into cameos and appearances from characters other than the main heroes. It.s not uncommon to see faces from other movies pop in for a quick visit. Last time we saw those fan favorite mutants the X-Men, in X-Men: Days of Future Past, there were multiple generations of Charles Xavier. And while we only expect to see one in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, James McAvoy.s version, the original, Patrick Stewart, recently stopped by the set. This doesn.t mean anything, but it.s still pretty cool. Trying to look intensely thoughtful, @sirpatstew and #jasonreitman visiting #xmen #apocalypse #xmenapocalypse set and reminiscing about our own #daysoffuturepast. Looking forward to "jasonreitmanlivereading tonight of #biglebowski with #michaelfassbender as "The Dude!"

Back in January this year, X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart thought that neither he nor co-star Ian McKellen were going to be popping up in X-Men Apocalypse, with the focus on the 1983 versions of the mutants that were rebooted in X-Men: First Class and continued into X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now a new set […]

Singer made the disclosure in an interview with Yahoo Movies about the home entertainment release of “X-Men: Days of Future Past — The Rogue Cut,” which is Singer’s cut of the film and includes 17 more minutes than the theatrical release.
“There are those ideas in play,” Singer said. “That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a mechanism by which to do it.”
He added, “We have to see how the films turn out — how this film turns out, how ‘Fantastic Four’ plays, to really understand what kind of desire and how that would really work. I think to just say you’re gonna do it is a mistake. You have to see how the films »

It's hard to tell what's rumour and what has a spine of fact to it when it comes to chatter about the worlds of X-Men and Fantastic Four colliding on screen. Both are Marvel properties that 20th Century Fox has the screen rights too, and the studio will be keen to keep them both active, lest it lose them as it did with Daredevil.
When X-Men: Days Of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer starts nattering about crossover potential then, then we figure that's worth talking about. Chatting to Yahoo Movies, he confirmed that "those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it. It deals with time. That’s all I’m going to say".
Although he’s still at work on X-Men: Apocalypse, Bryan Singer carved out some time to answer questions about his ever-expanding comic book movie universe over at Yahoo. And, somewhat naturally, he was asked about the rumours of Fox trying to link up his X-Men universe with the freshly rebooted Fantastic Four.“To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, you have to see how the films evolve before you make that decision to completely commit to that,” he said, before admitting that there are conversations about it, and that there is a "natural mechanism" that can be used to make it work. “Those ideas are in play,” he teased. “It deals with time. That’s all I’m going to say.” It’s hardly surprising that there would be ideas being thrown around, since Fox has been wanting to bring its various Marvel characters together for a while, »
Before Comic-Con got off to it's rousing start, with both casts of X-Men: Apocalypse and Fantastic Four arriving in person to show off new footage, it was heavily reported that 20th Century Fox was finally ready to merge both properties for an epic X-Men/Fantastic Four Crossover Movie. Resting at the heart of this rumor was the fact that director Bryan Singer was behind it all. He recently talked to Yahoo Movies about the rumors and reveals that, yes, those talks are indeed happening. He explained the following.
"Those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they're both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it. It deals with time. That's all I'm going to say."
Cryptic remarks, indeed. When he mentions the word 'time', it could be taken in a number of many different directions. As he hints, these movie »
Ever since it was announced that 20th Century Fox was planning to bring the Fantastic Four back to the big screen, there has been persistent rumor and speculation about the possibility that they could possibly one day crossover with the live-action versions of the X-Men. Unfortunately, people like writer/producer Simon Kinberg have done their part to shut down that kind of talk - but now Bryan Singer has openly admitted that a superhero meet-up could wind up being in play in coming years. Yahoo! is reporting these new statements from the filmmaker, who was speaking to the site while out promoting the recently released X-Men: Days of Future Past - Rogue Cut Blu-ray. Singer was asked about the possibility of seeing Marvel's mutant heroes and First Family meet on screen someday, and he explained, Those ideas are in play. That would be a natural match-up because they.re both »
It’s been rumoured ever since Fox announced its reboot of Fantastic Four, and now X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has made it official: plans are afoot for a crossover between the studio’s two Marvel properties.
“Those ideas are in play,” Singer tells Yahoo, revealing that there have been discussions about how to bring together the X-Men and Fantastic Four universes. “That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it.”
When pressed for more information about this “natural mechanism”, Singer would only respond: “It deals with time. That’s all I’m going to say.”
And as for the chances of the movie happening, the director added that: “We’ll have to see how [Fantastic Four and Apocalypse] turn out. To just say you’re going to do it would be a mistake, »

In a banner week for new releases, the five top-selling discs on the national homevideo sales charts for the week ending July 19 are all newcomers that hit stores the previous Tuesday, the designated day when new product is put on display.
Twentieth Century Fox’s “The Longest Ride,” a romantic drama with $37.5 million in theatrical earnings, debuted at No. 1. Based on the Nicholas Sparks book, the film follows a young couple whose lives change after meeting an older man who was in a car crash, as he reflects on his own past romance.

Just days after Comic-Con, where the first teaser trailer was shown, the first official X-Men: Apocalypse photos arrived. These gave us our first look at the title villain played by Oscar Isaac, along with some of the new mutants that will be on display. 20th Century Fox has now released those same photos in high-res, giving us a better look. Though, as you may notice, Apocalypse is suspsiosly absent from this official reveal. The big blue bad guy of this franchise sequel came under a lot of scrutiny, with his appearance compared to that of Ronan the Accuser in Guardians of the Galaxy. Harsher critics said he looked like he stepped out of a Power Rangers movie from the mid-90s. Are they giving him an upgrade?
20th Century Fox has decided to show off the more well-recieved aspects of its epic franchise sequel, which takes place roughly ten years »
