Oscar Isaac talks X-Men: Apocalypse and the Four Horseman

24 April 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following his adventure in a galaxy far, far away this December in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac is set to take on the role of the titular villain in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during an interview with IGN to promote his latest film Ex Machina, Isaac shared a few thoughts on Apocalypse’s motivation, and his recruitment of the Four Horsemen.

“Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool. It’s very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of – the way that cult leaders do – they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them – as it relates to every one of the Horseman… On an individual level he’s able to reveal the true power of his Horsemen and what’s true to them.

New Images Of Matthew McConaughey In The Free State Of Jones

23 April 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After spending a few years in development (and taking time out to direct the first Hunger Games film), Gary Ross has finally had the chance to work on one of his passion projects. New images from the film, The Free State Of Jones, are now online. Matthew McConaughey stars in the American Civil War drama, playing real-life advocate Newton Knight. A Mississippi man who had been a loyal Confederate recruit, he defected from the army and took a group of like-minded troops with him to create the Free State of Jones. Knight later married a slave (Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Rachel), creating one of the first ever publicised mixed race unions in the South, fought against the Confederates from within his new state and led a daring raid to free children who were still enslaved following the end of the conflict.Stx Entertainment is backing this one, which Ross wrote as well as directed. »

Kodi Smit-McPhee discusses being cast as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse

19 April 2015 4:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’s only 18 years old but he’s already established himself as one of the finest young actors working in Hollywood today having impressed in The Road, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and more recently Slow West, ironically alongside his fellow mutant Michael Fassbender.

In February director Bryan Singer revealed via his Instagram account that Smit-McPhee was cast in X-Men: Apocalypse as a young Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler, who was previously played by Scottish actor Alan Cumming in X-Men 2. In a recent interview with SuperHeroHype, Kodi Smit-McPhee revealed his thoughts on the audition process and the pressure to please comic-book purists.

When asked about the daunting task of taking over from Alan Cumming and playing a younger version, Smit-McPhee replied, “Because it is the Marvel Universe and X-Men and there are a lot of people expecting a lot of things, I did a huge amount »

Concept art of Ben Hardy as Angel / Archangel in X-Men: Apocalypse

9 April 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier in the week it was confirmed that former EastEnders star Ben Hardy is set to portray Warren Worthington III in next year’s X-Men sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, and now director Bryan Singer has debuted some official concept art of Hardy as Angel over at Empire…

Singer also took a moment to tease Angel’s transformation into Archangel, one of Apocalypse’s Four Horseman, stating that: “Ben Hardy is Angel – I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…”

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, »

Oscar Isaac calls X-Men: Apocalypse, “scary shit”

8 April 2015 12:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s going to be a big couple of years for Oscar Isaac. Ahead of him having a major part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actor is also set to feature as the titular Apocalypse in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor has been quite open when it comes to talking about the role (see here and here), and he’s been at it again.

“With X-Men, it’s about why this woman who invented Apocalypse, [writer] Louise Simonson, she was tasked with: make a new arch-villain,” he told Esquire in an interview. “She said, ‘Ok, I’ll make the embodiment of the Second Coming with the Four Horseman and all.’ That’s scary shit. So I’m curious about that. What’s the philosophical expression behind the apocalypse? What apocalypse means, which comes from the Greek for ‘to reveal.’ To lift back the curtain.”

Ben Hardy confirmed as Angel in X-Men: Apocalypse

2 April 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago Bryan Singer debuted some production art from X-Men: Apocalypse which revealed that Angel will be making an appearance in next year’s mutant superhero sequel, and now The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider has confirmed that former EastEnders star Ben Hardy is set to play the winged mutant.

Angel is a prominent character in the Age of Apocalypse storyline, with the original X-Men member striking a deal with Apocalypse, which sees him becoming one of the villain’s Four Horsemen and transforming into Archangel after being subjected to extensive genetic modifications.

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, »

X-Men: Apocalypse May Have Found Its Angel

1 April 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ever since Fox revealed that they would be introducing Apocalypse as a villain in the ongoing X-Men series, I secretly hoped that Warren Worthington III -- aka, Angel -- would get a second chance at cinematic glory. Now, it's sounding more and more like this is finally going to happen. Ben Hardy, a young actor associated with the British soap EastEnders, had his name attached to Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, as reported back in February by The Wrap. It was noted that Hardy once tested for the role of young Cyclops, though that gig eventually went to Tye Sheridan of Mud and Joe. We speculated at the time of casting that Hardy might play Angel. Then, this dropped: Update: Tho my initial scoop suggested otherwise, I'm hearing Ben Hardy is indeed playing Angel in X-Men: Apocalypse. http://t.co/EAOT32XUkA.

Angel featured in production art from X-Men: Apocalypse

30 March 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to post some production art from X-Men: Apocalypse, which confirms that the character of Angel is set to feature in the 1980s-set follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past.

At this point, we don’t know who will be playing this version of Warren Worthington III, but Ben Hardy (EastEnders) would appear to be a good shout, given that his character is yet to be revealed…

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, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

25 March 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we can add another mutant to the ever-expanding roster of X-Men: Apocalypse, with Bryan Singer taking to Instagram to reveal that newcomer Lana Condor will play the character Jubilation Lee, a.k.a. Jubilee…

Jubilee has previously made cameo appearances in the original three X-Men movies, with Katrina Florece portraying her in X-Men and Kea-Wong appearing in X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand, while she was also considered for a part in X-Men: Days of Future Past [check out some concept art here].

Three X-Men favourites rumoured to cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse

24 March 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Bryan Singer’s next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, will once again focus on the First Class team rather than the old guard as he did with X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that’s not to say that some of the older X-Men folk will be shying away from the movie.

According to the chaps over at Latino-Review, principal photography of X-Men: Apocalypse is set to start next month and among those called in are Hugh Jackman to reprise his role as Wolverine (no surprises there), Halle Berry as Storm (some surprises there) and Channing Tatum as Gambit (many surprises there!). Other rumours also state that Sir Ian McKellen is also going to come in to feature as Magneto once again.

With Tatum, it makes sense for 20th Century Fox to use this movie as a launch pad for Gambit’s solo movie, which is set for »

Jennifer Lawrence says X-Men: Apocalypse will be her last X-Men movie

23 March 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Hoult revealed that his contract as Beast is up with next year’s Bryan Singer-helmed sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, although the British actor admitted that he’s open to the idea of signing on for more mutant adventures.

Well, it seems that Jennifer Lawrence’s contract to play the shape-shifting mutant Mystique is also set to expire after Apocalypse, but unlike Hoult, it seems she’s ready to call time on the franchise, with the Oscar winner telling MTV News that: “It is my last one, actually.”

Since signing on to play Mystique in X-Men: First Class, Lawrence has become one of the biggest stars in the world (and the most-bankable of 2014) – thanks in no small part to her role in both the X-Men and The Hunger Games franchises, as well as her Academy Award win for »

Nicholas Hoult wants to extend his time as Beast beyond X-Men: Apocalypse

17 March 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been said that next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse will mark the end of a “trilogy” of movies centred around the X-Men: First Class line-up, and Nicholas Hoult has confirmed that his current contract is up after Apocalypse, but he’s keen to sign on for more X-Men adventures as Dr. Hank McCoy / Beast.

“This is the last one I’m signed up for,” Hoult tells E! Online during an interview at SXSW. “The first one did so well and [X-Men: Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly. It’s like, ‘Wow, people really want to see the films’ and the best thing is it’s a great crew and cast to work with and he’s a fun character. I have a good time playing him so I’d keep making them.”

SXSW: Jeff Nichols & Michael Shannon Talk 'Midnight Special,' Screen First Footage From The Film

15 March 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend at Austin's South by Southwest Film Festival, during a panel celebrating the working relationship of filmmaker Jeff Nichols and actor Michael Shannon, the two made a surprise debut of the first footage from their forthcoming studio thriller, "Midnight Special" (one of our 100 Most Anticipated Movies Of The Year). And it was, in fact, some of the most special footage we've seen at SXSW so far. Before they ran the footage, Nichols said that he first came onto Warner Bros' radar during the filming of his wonderful Southern Gothic yarn, "Mud." Shannon was in the middle of shooting the studio's big-budget "Man of Steel" and was only released for two days to work on his friend Nichols' drama (hence his rather small role). Warner Bros. warned Nichols that if anything happened to Shannon during the "Mud" shoot that caused the production of the superhero saga to be delayed or »

Watch The X-Men, Wes Anderson-style

12 March 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filmmaker Patrick Willems has released a short video of The Uncanny X-Men shot in director Wes Anderson’s unique style. All the Andersonian visual aspects are there – the symmetrical cinematography, the simplistic, yellow font – along with his favourite character archetypes ‘manipulative father figure’ (Professor X) and ‘confused fish-out-of-water’ (Bobby Drake). Watch the video below, and then try to not want Edward Norton playing Cyclops.

The next time we’ll see the actual X-Men is in X-Men: Apocalypse, set for release on May 19th, 2016. It 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. »
