Some people wondered if X-Men: Days of Future Past might have been a film that could reboot the X-Men franchise. While the movie definitely cleaned up some continuity issues and questionable deaths, it's clear the studio wasn't interested in rebooting the franchise at that point. Now, with the major X-Men actors finishing up their contractual obligations, it appears Fox might be interested in using X-Men: Apocalypse as the film that ushers in the new era of the X-Men. "This is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens." ~ Bryan Singer According to an interview with EW, director Bryan Singer says, "This is kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters. This is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens." With the introductions of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Psylocke (Olivia Munn »

Note: The first paragraph of this post contains a Terminator Genisys spoiler. Skip to the second paragraph if you want to avoid it. By the end of Terminator Genisys we are to believe Skynet has been destroyed. That's it, no more, all done. If you walk out of the theater as the credits roll and make it into the lobby before a mid-credits scene plays, that's the impression you'll be left with. However, as those that have now seen it realize, the Matt Smith character, seen briefly in the film's opening and periodically throughout the finale, mimicking the behavior of Resident Evil's Red Queen, is still "alive" and Skynet still has plans of its own. The scene renders the entirety of the film moot as we now know Smith's character was merely a creation to ensure the story never ends, thus allowing for more films to be made. Whether »

We are currently in the midst of Hollywood's reboot and retcon culture, and as we've learned from "Terminator Genisys," sometimes all that retooling can barely make any sense. And yet another franchise is in the process of being reinvented: X-Men. Last year's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" did a large narrative reset, and admittedly, it mostly worked. But according to director Bryan Singer, that film, and the ones that came before, were just scratching the surface and the real X-Men are yet to come.

The Rogue Cut trailer flashes bits and pieces of several new scenes that have been edited back into the film for this new version. Most of the new footage revolves around Magneto and Mystique rather than Anna Paquin's Rogue character, though Rogue does get a little dialogue as she's rescued from the X-Mansion.
Magneto will find himself battling the future Sentinels in a sequence that is heavy on visual effects. You also get a taste of that sequence in the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past Rogue Cut trailer below.
The X-Men: Days Of Future Past Rogue Cut Blu-ray will arrive in stores on Tuesday, July 14, only two days after San Diego Comic-Con wraps up. »
Univeral Pictures’ Jurassic World has pushed its worldwide gross to $1.385 billion in its fourth weekend, overtaking Frozen ($1.274 billion), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($1.341 billion) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.383 billion) to climb to fifth in the list of the highest grossing movies of all time.
Jurassic World now sits behind fellow Universal release Furious 7, which has pulled in $1.511 billion and is currently the highest grossing movie of the year, although the dino sequel will surely have something to say about that in the coming weeks. As of course will Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December.

Back in April, new concept art images debuted from X-Men: Apocalypse, which gave us a look at the new Cerebro, along with the Blackbird jet and the Egyptian tomb of the main villain, Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac. Today, Entertainment Weekly gives us a better look at this artwork in their new Comic-Con edition, along with some new details from director Bryan Singer. As you know, X-Men: Apocalypse rounds out the trilogy that started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the director teases that this new movie will essentially conclude all six X-Men movies.
"This is kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters. This is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens."
It sounds like X-Men: Apocalypse could bring the franchise full-circle, potentially ending where the original 2000 superhero movie X-Men started. »

Yesterday, we were treated to the very first official still image from Fox’s upcoming Deadpool film, and now two new photos have been released, courtesy of EW and Empire. One of them features a perfect recreation of a scene from the initial leaked test footage, while the other shows us our first official look at newcomer Brianna Hildebrand as the Merc with the Mouth’s mutant pal, Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
In the comics, Negasonic is the code name of Ellie Phimister, who has the powers of telepathy and precognition. She’s a former student of Emma Frost, who was played by January Jones in X-Men: First Class. Considering the time gap and the fact that Frost appears to have been killed between the events of First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, that little detail will likely be changed.

See how many new bits you can spot."This is not just an extended edition of X-Men: Days Of Future Past," says the director, "but an all-new version of the film."

Ever since X-Men: Apocalypse started shooting in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared numerous photos, featuring either his cast members or some of the sets. Today, the filmmaker shared the latest photo on Instagram, which teases the arrival of Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse. Unfortunately, we don't get to see the actor himself, but the director did show his chair, exclaiming, "Today! #Xmen #apocalypse awakens."
Hopefully it's only a matter of time before we see Oscar Isaac on set, but it is still unclear on how he will be portrayed in X-Men: Apocalypse. It's possible that we may get our first glimpse of Apocalypse at Comic-Con during 20th Century Fox's Hall H presentation on Saturday, July 11 at 5:45 Pm. It's also possible that, since the actor seems to be starting his portion of the production today, that Bryan Singer could reveal more photos between now and the convention.
20th Century Fox has released a new preview for the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut. The preview shows us some of the new footage that the X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut has to offer, along with an introduction from director Bryan Singer, who explains that this is more than just an extended cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, but rather an alternate version of the film. The preview offers some of the 17 minutes of new footage that fans will get to see, which wasn't included in the theatrical cut.

Director Bryan Singer has gotten an awful lot of mileage out of the scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past he originally cut out of the finished film. Dubbed the "Rogue Cut" thanks to the footage featuring Anna Paquin's character that was almost entirely excised from the theatrical cut, this alternate version now weaves those scenes back in to put a different twist on the story. In addition to the expanded narrative, this new version will also have nearly 90 minutes of all-new special features. Some of this material has already been released online. You can check out some of the restored footage, like Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) engaging in a little romance here, as well as an extended look at Rogue Cut here.

Terminator Genisys, 2015
Directed by Alan Taylor
John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be.
Terminator Genisys was always going to struggle. Not only was it going to be a franchise sequel to what many believe is the cornerstone of both the action and science fiction genres, but it also had a rough ride in the early days of its marketing campaign. The announcement of its misspelled title was met with much amusement and mockery from the Internet and its first trailer received nothing but puzzled faces, cocked slightly to the left while mouthing the word, “what?”. But it’s not because it’s a sequel/reboot/reset to the Terminator franchise that Terminator Genisys fails. »
