'X-Men: Apocalypse' Has A Lost, Angry Cyclops Says Tye Sheridan

26 July 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Tye Sheridan on playing Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse

26 July 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with IndieWire to discuss his latest film The Stanford Prison Experiement, Tye Sheridan got onto the topic of X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set to see him take on the role of Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops.

“There’s no franchise I’d rather be a part of and doing sort of as my first foray into larger budget stuff than X-Men,” said Sheridan. “When you go back and look at all the movies — the history of X-Men is so rich and the characters are so rich and they have such depth, and there’s such depth to the stories. I feel like most franchises and superhero films don’t have that. I think that’s why this franchise is not just special to me, but also just so special in general. I’m so lucky and grateful to be a part of it.”

'Stanford Prison Experiment' director still hasn't heard from the original subjects yet

18 July 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You'll be kicking yourself if you don't see "The Stanford Prison Experiment" in theaters.  Seriously.  And, no, I'm not just saying that because I happen to know director Kyle Patrick Alvarez socially or that it's a Sundance Jury Award-winning movie or that it depicts one of the most shocking events to occur at one of America's greatest Universities over the past fifty years.* The real reason is that besides the questions it raises about the human condition and our ability to descend to abject cruelty, "Stanford" features a once in a life time cast that will dominate Hollywood for the next 15 to 20 years.* *It also has earned strong reviews to date including a 71 grade on Metacritic and 78% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Based on true events, the new drama chronicles the 1971 psychological experiment that found Stanford University students sorted into the roles of prison guard or a generic prisoner.  In theory, »

Evan Peters says the Quicksilver scene in X-Men: Apocalypse is “bigger and better”

18 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For many X-Men fans, the highlight of X-Men: Days of Future Past was the scene which involved Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters, using his super speed to take down a room full of guards in the Pentagon. Last month, director Bryan Singer confirmed that there would be another slow-motion Quicksilver sequence in 2016’s X-Men Apocalypse, leaving many fans wondering what to expect.

During a recent interview with MTV, Peters further teased the sequence, while also giving away a bit of information about it: “The special effects guys, man, they absolutely nailed that and did a fantastic job on it. This year we’re working on something that’s bigger and better, keeping the same elements that worked, then adding a few new ones. I’m really excited to see it all cut together, and I’m excited for people to see it, too. I think it’s going to be »

Oscar Isaac and Olivia Munn discuss their X-Men roles as Apocalypse and Psylocke

18 July 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox gave us a peek at X-Men: Apocalypse earlier this week with a series of official stills [see here and here], which included our first look at two new additions in Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse and Olivia Munn’s Psylocke.

While Psylocke’s look seemed to go down well with fans, the same couldn’t be said for Isaac’s titular villain, and the actor spoke to EW this week about how they came about with his design:

“We had to do some adjustments here and there and be like, alright, maybe this is too alien. He also is someone who people would want to follow and not just be terrified of. So the balance, and then making sure that there’s some great elements from the comic but also making our own thing as well. In the comic, he generally is like 12 feet, 600 pounds.”

Meanwhile, Olivia Munn also offered up a few words about her character, »

'The Stanford Prison Experiment' (2015) Movie Review

15 July 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Stanford Prison Experiment, a tough, unnerving watch based on a real-life research experiment held in the early '70s at Stanford University, says as much about human nature and the effect of power over both the powerful and the powerless as it does about modern society's penchant for reality television and the constant desire to not only witness, but revel in the downfall of others. Are you a good personc You'd probably say "yes", but how closely are any of us looking when asked the questionc The titular experiment was started by Dr. Philip Zimbardo (played by Billy Crudup), a Stanford professor who took 24 college kids over the summer of 1971 and, with the flip of a coin, assigned twelve to be guards and twelve to be prisoners in a simulated prison on the Stanford campus over the course of two weeks.

Bryan Singer teases classic X-Men costumes for X-Men: Apocalypse

14 July 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The X-Men franchise has come in for a number of criticisms over the years, but if there’s one persistent complaint aimed at the series it’s the fact that for the most part, the movies have done away with the traditional comic book costumes.

Well, it seems that may be about to change with the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, with director Bryan Singer teasing the introduction of more faithful costumes during an interview with Yahoo!.

“I will say that in X-Men: Apocalypse there is a chance – without giving anything away – that you may get closer to seeing what I think, Mr. X-Men News, you are interested in seeing,” said Singer when asked about the possibility of seeing the colourful array of X-Men costumes. “I know it’s something I’ve been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.”

Jennifer Lawrence open to Mystique return after X-Men: Apocalypse

14 July 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in March, Jennifer Lawrence suggested that she’d be calling time on her role as Mystique in the X-Men franchise, describing next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse as her “last one.” However, it seems she may be contemplating a change of heart, with the Oscar winner telling Yahoo! Movies that she’d consider a return to the mutant superhero franchise.

“I told Fox not to not ask me,” said Lawrence at Comic-Con. ” kind of want to bait them with a text and then when they call me, I go, ‘Don’t call me!’ and then hang up. I don’t know. I love doing these movies. I want them to ask me, and then I’m just going to see how I feel in the moment when they ask. It might not make a lot of sense to a lot of people, but I feel like I’ll know when they ask. »
