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, »

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].

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, »

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 »

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 »

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.”
Seeing as X-Men: Apocalypse is set to reintroduce a host of X-Men characters as younger incarnations, you’d have to »

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 »

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. »

Following years of mediocre romantic comedies Matthew McConaughey finally proved what we knew all along; that he could do better. Killer Joe, Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf Of Wall Street; suddenly the native Texan was showing himself to be the best part of these films. The rise of Matthew McConaughey (I refuse to use "McConaissance") continues with this first look at his latest film, The Free State Of Jones directed by Gary Ross. The film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, »

James Marsden might be the nicest mentor ever.
The former X-Men star told Et that he has officially passed the Cyclops torch to up-and-coming actor Tye Sheridan for X-Men: Apocalypse. The 18-year-old is set to star as a young Cyclops in the upcoming film, so naturally he reached out to Marsden, who played the adult version in four previous X-Men films.
"He is such a class act. This kid is just very gracious and very grateful,” Marsden shared at Unfinished Business co-star Vince Vaughn's hand and footprint ceremony. “We touched base briefly and I just told him how happy I was for him and he wanted any tips and advice and I just said, ‘You don't really need any. You've got it. I've seen you in the movie Mud’ and all the other things he's done. He's just a spectacular actor, just naturally gifted. He knows what he's doing and I'm very happy that he was »
Scarlett Johansson’s cool with the inappropriate touching and Idina Menzel hasn’t said much about the face touching (apparently it was pre-planned). Next up for John Travolta’s special touch is a role as an art forger in the crime drama “The Forger.” Co-starring Tye Sheridan (“Mud”) and Christopher Plummer (“Beginners”), the film melds the milieu of art fabrication with the world of heists, and it’s a family affair. Here’s the official synopsis plus our review of the film from Tiff last year. The world’s best art forger (John Travolta) makes a deal with a crime syndicate to get an early release from prison, but in return he must pull of an impossible heist - he must forge a painting by Claude Monet, steal the original from a museum and replace it with a replica so perfect that no one will notice. He enlists the help »

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. »

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.

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…

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.

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.
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.
