With his next year or two set to be dominated by bringing X-Men: Apocalypse to the big screen, Bryan Singer is nonetheless building on the success of this summer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past with a new project or two.
One of them is Age Of Heroes, based on the 90s comic series by James Hudnall. It followed a bunch of misfit characters in a land that's ruled over by gods. When said gods disappear, this unlikely bunch has the job of protecting that land from the magic and monsters that are suddenly allowed to roam without restriction.

Constantine: Based upon the characters from DC Comics and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (Dexter) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), Constantine reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a morally challenged character who doesn’t »

Are you getting restless about all these halfway posts? We're almost done. The Power of List compels me. There's one more halfway post to go that's basically 'The Oscar Charts are Updated!' as the coding problem I mentioned is fixed and the updates are happening behind the scenes as you read this. We must get all this halfway business behind us by Saturday morning so that we can ape out all weekend with Andy Serkis & Co and start this second half of the year off right.
The Greatest Performances Of 2014's First Half
Best Leading Actress: Keira Knightley does her most relaxed and fluid work ever in Begin Again as a musician at a crossroads, never letting any one aspect of the character's situation pigeonhole her emotional responses; Agata Kulesza is an abrasive and evasive presence in her first scenes in Ida as a cynical woman who is »

He’s been played by everyone from Benedict Cumberbatch to Max Headroom. Yet the latest incarnation of the world’s greatest detective is a choice that makes you wonder why he hasn’t been selected before. Sir Ian McKellen, fresh from his metallurgic activities in X-men: Days Of Future Past, has taken off his helmet and donned a Homberg to Tweet an image of himself in costume for the forthcoming Mr Holmes.
The pictorial solution is below…
@IanMcKellen: Over 70 actors have previously played Sherlock Holmes. Now he’s 93 years old and it’s my turn.
Previously known as A Slight Trick Of The Mind, the project reteams McKellen with Gods And Monsters director Bill Condon in the tale of a decidedly mature Sherlock in reflective mood over his extraordinary career and entanglements. One of the latter would surely be cast mate Laura Linney, in this adaptation of Mitch Cullin’s »

Ian McKellen has had no shortage of iconic roles throughout his storied career, from Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past to Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. It's possible that the actor may have found a way to top all of those roles with his next project Mr. Holmes, where he plays a 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes. Earlier today, the actor sent out the first photo from this drama to his Twitter followers, which you can take a look at below.

The actor signed on to star as the legendary detective back in September, when the project was known as A Slight Trick of the Mind. The story is adapted from Mitch Cullin's novel, which is set in the year »
$400 million. That’s the line. The threshold your movie has to cross in order for your big budget studio tent-pole film to be considered for a franchise. The veritable break-even number for films that in this risk averse studio system will warrant consideration for another installment.
The recent announcement that Pacific Rim is going to get a sequel was something of a surprise seeing how the first film was seen as a disappointment. In the United States the film barely cracked the the $100 million mark. Internationally, it fared better bringing the worldwide total to $400 million. Given the movies’ sizable budget and P.R. campaign, the movie didn’t recover its initial investment. It was by no means a bomb, but you couldn’t exactly call it a hit either. It was an average film with an average performance, »

The box office juggernaut that is Transformers: Age of Extinction just keeps on rolling. One day after becoming China’s highest-grossing movie ever, the Michael Bay-directed sequel has now passed the $600 million mark worldwide, with a domestic haul of $185 million and an international take of $421.2 million giving the film a whopping $606.5 million already. It’s surely only a matter of time before Age of Extinction overtakes Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past to become the biggest earner of the year so far, and at this stage it looks all but assured that it will go on to become the first billion dollar release of 2014.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer »

Paris — Bolstered by the smash hit comedy “Serial (Bad) Weddings,” France’s box office was up 11.4% to 106.6 million admissions and an estimated $916 million during the first half of 2014, according to the National Film Board, Cnc.
Over the last 12 months, French theaters attracted 204 million moviegoers, up 3.6% on the previous year.
Whereas 2013 was marked by a lack of French blockbuster, this year saw a pair of homegrown hits which nabbed the first two slots of the box office: Philippe de Chauveron’s laffer “Serial (Bad) Weddings” (TF1, B.O.: $84.7 million) and Dany Boon’s comedy “Supercondriaque” (Pathe, B.O.: $45 million).
These two movies also helped drive up the share of French movies to 48.5%, compared with 37% in 2013. The share of American pics, meanwhile, fell from 49% to 41.6%.

Who doesn't love a good prison break? I was thinking about it recently and realized some of my favorite movies involve prison breaks. This year alone there were two movies that I saw that featured brilliant prison break scenes. If I ever get thrown into jail, the first thing I'm going to do is start plotting my escape! I'll want a good story to tell people.
I came up with a list of ten movies that included kick-ass prison break scenes. No matter what kind of prision a person is in, I imagine it's hell. Sure, some are worse than others, but I imagine anyone that ever been thrown in one can't wait to get out. There is a point for many of these characters where they ain't got nothin' to loose, so escaping become their only option. If I ever do have to break out of a prison these »

Today we have for you a longer Tuesday episode than we have had recently as Laremy and I just couldn't stop talking as we kicked the show off immediately by discussing Guardians of the Galaxy before digging into the horrible July 4 weekend. We then discussed the idea I wrote about last week concerning the possible abolishment of the PG-13 rating (read about that here) and then we discuss Steven Soderbergh's recent comments as to the biggest reason he quit the movies. We answer a voice mail, your questions, play some games and much more in an action-packed episode that also includes a code for ten listeners to get the $2 off the first month of the premium RopeofSilicon podcast... that code being BNL2DOLLAR. It's only available for the first ten listeners, so get on it. Plus, thanks to those of you that voted, the next audio commentary will be »

X-Men: Days of Future Past will receive a director's cut edition for its home entertainment release later this year.
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed through her Twitter account that a revised version of the mutant blockbuster will be available on Blu-ray.
The disc will include an extended scene with Anna Paquin's Rogue, which was omitted from the film's theatrical cut.
In the sequence, Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) rescue Rogue from the Xavier Mansion, now a military base guarded by Sentinels, so that Rogue can absorb Kitty Pryde's (Ellen Page) powers and keep Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) stationed in the past.
X-Men writer-producer Simon Kinberg told Digital Spy in May that the scene "is as good as anything else in the movie, but I really wrote it as an appendage to the movie because I wanted to see Rogue [and] not because it services the »
She also confirmed that some of the scenes that will be included in the cut will involve Anna Paquin's Rogue. Awhile back director Bryan Singer said the scenes she was in ended up on the cutting room floor.
Those scenes were said to include an entire action sequence in which Iceman, Magneto, and Professor X rescue Rogue from the sentinels. In another part of the movie she uses her powers to help keep Wolverine's mind in his younger body after he inadvertently injures Kitty. Other scenes that will most likely be included are other scenes with Mystique interacting with Beast and Wolverine, which is something we saw in the trailers for the movie.

Rome – Alan Rickman, Richard Gere, and a trio of hot younger Hollywood stars will be feted by Italy’s Giffoni Film Festival for children, the unique event where children from all over the world are jurors, now set to expand its horizons with planned construction of its long-gestating Giffoni Multimedia Valley.
Rickman, known to kids around the world for his role as Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter franchise, will be honoured with the Francois Truffaut lifetime achievement award at the cinematic holiday camp of sorts in the Southern Italian town where A-list stars engage with kids. Jessica Chastain (pictured) was among last year’s Giffoni guests.

Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie: How the feck did it get on the big screen?
Transformers: Age of Extinction pulled in £4.7 million over the weekend after bowing on July 5, but isn't eligible for this week's chart as this is drawn from Friday to Sunday totals.
Michael Bay's sequel is a certainty to take the number one slot next week thanks to its nine-day opening run.
We’ve just finished getting our heads around how facepalm-inducingly bad much of Michael Bay’s latest Transformers movie is, but like just about any big-budget blockbuster these days, it’s packed chock full of sneaky visual and aural easter eggs that relate to its universe as a whole, as well as sly references to various other projects outside of it.
Now, while Age of Extinction doesn’t exactly boast the finessed line-up of hidden content that, say, X-Men: Days of Future Past did, there’s a surprising level of attention-to-detail paid to slotting in the geeky references and basically giving viewers plenty to look out for amid all of that flying metal.
Fun though these references are to pick out, it’s just a shame that Bay’s screenwriter Ehren Kruger didn’t put anywhere near as much consideration and thought into the actual script as Bay did the added value. »

Thanks to the son of someone working on Jurassic World, we now have our first look at one of the animatronic Velociraptors that will be used for the film. Check it out here…
As you can see, this muzzled beast is incredibly detailed. The fact that director Colin Trevorrow is utilizing tried-and-true animatronic techniques, rather than solely rely on creating dinosaurs through CGI, is a testament to how much love he has for the original film and the more hands-on approach he’s taking for the reboot. Chances are this raptor is just the tip of the iceberg, so stay tuned for more updates as they trickle in!
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Bd Wong (Jurassic Park), Irrfan Khan (The Amazing Spider-Man), Judy Greer »
