John Ottman to score X-Men: Apocalypse

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

FilmMusicReporter has revealed that composer John Ottman has signed on to score 20th Century Fox’s upcoming mutant superhero sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, which is being directed by Bryan Singer.

The news will come as no surpise whatsoever, seeing as Ottman has collaborated with Singer on the majority of the director’s films, including The Usual Suspects, Apt Pupil, X2: X-Men United, Superman Returns, Valkyrie, Jack the Giant Slayer and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as Storm and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler. »

Ben Hardy circling X-Men: Apocalypse mystery role

25 February 2015 3:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to TheWrap, Bryan Singer has found yet another young cast member for X-Men: Apocalypse, in the form of EastEnders actor Ben Hardy.

Unfortunately, we have no idea who Hardy will be playing, as the role is “another important [one] that is being kept under wraps.”

Hardy was one of the actors who tested for the role of Cyclops, which ultimately went to Mud‘s Tye Sheridan. The new report claims that while he was rumored to be playing Angel, “insiders” claim that that’s not the case. Whether or not Angel is actually in the film is, like a lot of things surrounding this project, still a mystery.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, »

After debuting some concept art which appeared to give us our first look at the sentient AI Ship earlier in the week [see here], Bryan Singer has once again taken to social media to tease next year’s mutant sequel X-Men: Apocalypse with a behind-the-scenes shot that offers up a glimpse of Xavier and Cerebro…

Evan Peters talks about possibly returning as Quicksilver in X-Men: Apocalypse

19 February 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the most popular elements among certain fans (but not all ) from X-Men: Days of Future Past was the introduction of Evan Peters as the mutant Quicksilver. But as Bryan Singer gears up for the next movie in the franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse, will we be seeing Peters suit up as Quicksilver again?

“I think so, yes,” he told I Am Rouge. “I assume it as well, but I don’t know what I’m supposed to say and not supposed to say. I think…I don’t know what I can say and what I can’t say… All I can say is that I have not seen a script yet.”

One would assume that Peters would be back, perhaps with an older version of his younger sister Scarlet Witch, but if he is coming back then he’s keeping tight lipped about it.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, »

Bryan Singer Posts Mysterious New 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Concept Art

16 February 2015 5:42 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now that the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse has been expanded to include Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Mud star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Drumline: A New Beat star Alexandra Shipp as Storm, it's time to focus on other aspects of the film as production looms closer. Director Bryan Singer just teased a piece of concept art from Grant Major (who previously worked on Green Lantern) showing a mysterious figure standing at the entry ramp to some sort of ship. At first glance, I thought this might just be the Blackbird, but many believe this to be Apocalypse's artificially intelligent vessel known as Ship. Look! Here's the piece of X-Men: Apocalypse concept art that Bryan Singer teased on Instagram: Some production art. #XmenApocalypse #GrantMajor I was a little busy but will continue to snap more.

Exclusive: Shoot underway in South Africa on Chris Smith thriller.

Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond the Pines, The Gambler) has joined Tye Sheridan (Mud, Joe) and Bel Powley (The Diary of A Teenage Girl) in the cast of writer-director Chris Smith’s (Get Santa) thriller Detour, which is now underway in South Africa.

Supporting cast on the film includes True Blood’s Stephen Moyer and newcomer Jared Abrahamson (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days). 

Sheridan will star as law student and all round good guy Harper who suspects his stepdad Vincent (Moyer) of causing the car crash that landed his mother in a coma. 

Drowning his sorrows in a seedy La whisky bar, Harper ends up drinking with Johnny Ray (Cohen), a tough redneck who offers to “take care” of Vincent for a cool $20,000. Powley will play Ray’s beautiful but distant girlfriend.

Producers are Julie Baines and Jason Newmark with financing from Head Gear Films »

Rocky Spinoff Creed Set For Thanksgiving As Point Break Remake Shifts To Christmas

4 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Because Hollywood never met a dead franchise it couldn’t resuscitate, this year will see the arrival of a new Rocky spinoff, titled Creed. Warner Bros. just announced that it has set the pic for the already-crowded Thanksgiving weekend, where it will duke it out with Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, Ridley Scott’s sci-fi The Martian, Mud director Jeff Nichols’ sci-fi Midnight Special, and an untitled Christmas comedy from 50/50 collaborators Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Michael B. Jordan (The Fantastic Four) stars as the grandson of Apollo Creed, that fearsome fighter with whom Sylvester Stallone’s beloved Rocky did battle in the original series. Stallone will co-star alongside Dear White People breakout Tessa Thompson, but the most exciting aspect of this otherwise dubious proposition is that it will reteam Jordan with his Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler (pictured above). Based on the merits of their last partnership, this may »

Simon Kinberg talks X-Men: Apocalypse, confirms Rose Byrne return as Moira MacTaggert

31 January 2015 3:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week the actors who will play the young versions of Jean Grey, Storm and Cyclops were announced for X-Men: Apocalypse, and now it has been confirmed that another character will be returning to the franchise, with Rose Byrne, who played Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: First Class, set to return for the latest movie.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Simon Kinberg confirmed that Byrne will be back in the role for X-Men: Apocalypse: “She’s a significant character in the movie. We ended First Class with Charles having wiped portions of her memory of her experience with the X-Men. They are, essentially, strangers to her when she meets them. It’s certainly a rich relationship that we started to dig into in First Class, and would like to mine more in this one.”

Kinberg also states that the latest film will be tie up existing character arcs: “This »

Matthew McConaughey To Lead Bestseller Adaptation Born To Run

28 January 2015 2:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey has signed on to star as a long-distance runner in the adaptation of Christopher McDougalls’s best-selling novel, Born To Run. After sitting pretty on the New York Times Bestseller list for 187 weeks, the book went on to spark a global barefoot running sensation and has gone on to sell 3 million copies worldwide. So, it’s no wonder that the true story caught the attention of Hollywood and McConaughey, who has become a go-to leading man for several high-profile titles in recent years.

Per Deadline, the film tells the story of an award-winning journalist and frequently-injured runner who learns to hone his ability to run for hundreds of miles without resting or acquiring any injuries. His lengthy jog finds him headed for Mexico’s isolated, deadly Copper Canyons to find out how the blissful Tarahumara Indians managed to perfect this ability.

Matthew McConaughey Boards ‘Born to Run’

28 January 2015 2:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matthew McConaughey is attached to star in the adaptation of Christopher McDougall’s “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.”

Matthew Michael Carnahan is penning the script, with Mickey Liddell, Deb Newmyer and Lorenzo di Bonaventura producing.

The story follows a journalist and often-injured runner who headed for Mexico’s Copper Canyons to find out how the Tarahumara Indians honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury.

The film is currently without distribution.

McConaughey is continuing to find projects that sway more toward the serious dramas like “Mud” and “Dallas Buyers Club” that have helped revitalized his career in recent years as opposed to the romantic comedies that helped him make a name for himself early on in his career.

He was most recently seen in “Interstellar” and can be seen next in Gus Van Sant’s “Sea of Trees. »

James Marsden says congrats to 'powerful' actor Tye Sheridan for new role as Cyclops

24 January 2015 4:42 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - A new actor has been named to play Cyclops in the next "X-Men" movie, and James Marsden is impressed. Marsden, who has been the long-time Cyclops in the popular superhero films, was on hand at the Sundance Film Festival to comment on Tye Sheridan stepping into his shoes, to play the younger version of Cyclops in forthcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse." "He's a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in 'Mud'," Marsden said from the red carpet of "The D Train" premiere. He said he has "never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful. I congratulate him." Marsden also talked about his character Oliver Lawless in the Jack Black co-starring "D Train."

Sundance Film Review: ‘Entertainment’

24 January 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not everyone found much to laugh about in director Rick Alverson’s 2012 Sundance competition entry “The Comedy,” an extravagantly rude, confrontational and surprisingly poignant study of a dissolute New York slacker waiting to inherit his dying father’s fortune. And not everyone will be entertained by Alverson’s new “Entertainment,” an even darker, weirder odyssey through a soulless American nowhere, with perhaps the world’s most abrasively unfunny insult comic as our guide. But take it or leave it, Alverson’s fourth feature is singular stuff, and it reconfirms the director as one of the truly bold voices in the all-too-homogenous U.S. indie film scene. General audiences will keep a safe distance, but “Entertainment” should have no trouble finding a fervent cult to call its own.

Entertainment” was conceived as a starring vehicle for the astonishing Gregg Turkington — and, more precisely, for Turkington’s longtime alter ego, Neil Hamburger, »
