So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 in the UK and May 27th, 2016 in the States, with Bryan Singer directing a cast that includes X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) and Lucas Till (Havok) along with newcomers Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, »

Ian McKellen will not return as Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse

16 June 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in February, Patrick Stewart indicated that his good pal Ian McKellen would be returning to the role of Magneto for next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, however McKellen has now confirmed to Digital Spy that he won’t donning the helmet for the 2016 sequel.

“I haven’t heard [the rumours], I don’t think I am, no, no, they are currently making the film and I’m not in it…  I was very happy to be a part of the films but I have other things to be doing. I’ve just done Mr. Holmes, I just done some filming for a sitcom, a film for BBC TV with Anthony Hopkins, so there are compensations for not getting caught up in blockbusters.”

Watch the intense ‘The Stanford Prison Experiment’ trailer

15 June 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back in August of 1971 on Stanford University’s campus, 18 young men were selected for a psychological experiment simulating the effects of a prison environment on both prisoners and guards. The results were famously shocking and controversial, and the study became a case study of psychology courses everywhere.

For years a version of this story has been trying to get off the ground, and director Kyle Patrick Alvarez (C.O.G.) finally made it happen this year at Sundance. The Stanford Prison Experiment is a scarily accurate recreation of the events, with even the film’s set built to a near perfect model of the actual dimensions the “prisoners” were held in. Lane Scarberry said in her Sundance review that the film is, “a claustrophobic tale of ego and wits under duress that retains suspense not in the outcome but in its execution.” Here’s the full synopsis:

Bryan Singer teases another Quicksilver slow-motion sequence in X-Men: Apocalypse

11 June 2015 5:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May 2014 producer Simon Kinberg teased that Quicksilver might be returning to the next X-Men movie and then in October of last year we got further confirmation that he most definitely would be making an appearance. We still don’t know how bid an impact he’ll have in the grand scale of the story but thanks to director Bryan Singer, we now know a little bit more about at least one scene in which Quicksilver will appear.

Singer posted a photo on his official Instagram teasing another Quicksilver slow-motion sequence in X-Men: Apocalypse, much like the one we saw during Days of Future Past when he helped Wolverine and Beast bust Magneto out of that “impenetrable” prison. It was one of the highlights of the entire movie and despite a fleeting appearance many movie fans wanted to see more of Evan Peters as Peter Maximoff.

Forget 'Cyclops', Kingsman Star Taron Egerton Has His Eye On Playing 'Wolverine'

9 June 2015 2:01 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Having impressed as the lead in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service earlier this year, many people had pegged Taron Egerton to play a young 'Scott Summers' in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse. Instead, the role went to another young talent in Mud's Tye Sheridan. Egerton is currently filming Winter Olympic biopic Eddie The Eagle alongside X-Men franchise stalwart Hugh Jackman. With his co-star set to hang up his claws after 2016, the British actor told ScreenRant that he would love to follow in Jackman's footsteps. "I am a huge X-Men fan! My feeling about that is… I don’t know if I’m quite grizzly enough. My facial hair is still very thin and patchy. I feel someone who plays Wolverine potentially needs testosterone in abundance. Yeah, I’d love to have a go at it, but I don’t know. [Laughs] I don’t know. I »

‘Love & Mercy': Bill Pohlad Takes on Beach Boys Icon Brian Wilson’s Tortured Past

26 May 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bill Pohlad never wanted to be that cliche of the successful industry insider who goes around town lamenting, “What I really want to do is direct.”

But the Oscar-nominated producer-financier behind “Brokeback Mountain,” “The Tree of Life” and “12 Years a Slave” really did want to direct — an ambition he harbored for years after a failed first attempt, and which grew even as he garnered increasing recognition as a backer of commercially risky, artistically ambitious indie films.

“I always had it in the back of my mind, and as time went on, it became more in the front of my mind,” Pohlad says over a recent breakfast at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Marco Grob for Variety

Pohlad admits he wasn’t ready to call the shots when he directed the little-seen 1990 film “Old Explorers.” But now, more than two decades later, the 58-year-old sees much brighter prospects for the »

Despite being a well-known actor for many years, Matthew McConaughey has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars after such projects as "Interstellar," "Mud," "Dallas Buyers Club" and "True Detective." And just like with most actors and directors, McConaughey was recently asked if he would ever consider being in a superhero movie. He replied: "I've read some Marvel and DC scripts and I've talked about working with them on some scripts, none of which I'll share with you what they are . or were. Yeah, I've circled some of those. Nothing has been right for me yet. But I'm sure open to it." When asked what would convince him to join a superhero film, McConaughey said: "It's very simple for me. I look at the script. Is the opportunity exciting? Is the money that comes with it exciting? Sure. Is it the possibility of going, 'Hey you can get on a train »

Saturday Night Live Recap: Everyone and Their Mother Is on Reese Witherspoon's Episode

10 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Reese Witherspoon is full of surprises. She's in critically acclaimed independent films like Mud, and high-budget flops like This Means War. She'll get arrested vigorously defending her husband against a DUI charge, disappear for a year, then return in two powerhouses of the Oscar season. And then she'll follow all that up with the intensely reviled Hot Pursuit, which she's currently promoting with a stint hosting Saturday Night Live. The only surprise she could have brought to the show is if she didn't approach her hosting duties ready to play. The real surprise was that this episode was just as risky and unpredictable as its host. There is scathing satire, pitch-black comedy, and heartstring-plucking sentiment all in the same 90 minutes. Some of these risks did not pay off—frankly, some of them were total trainwrecks—but like Reese Witherspoon's career, you always wanted to see what happens next.2016 Republicans »

Joel Edgerton And Ruth Negga Will Star In Loving, Mud Director’s Next Drama

8 May 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jeff Nichols, who earned widespread acclaim for his dramas Take Shelter and Mud, has next lined up Loving, a drama he wrote and will shoot this SeptemberWarrior actor Joel Edgerton and World War Z actress Ruth Negga are attached to lead the drama in the roles of Richard and Mildred Loving, the couple at the center of 1967 civil rights case Loving v.

The Lovings were an interracial couple who married in June of 1958, only for their union to be met with violence and legal repercussions. Authorities broke into their home, arrested them and sentenced each to a year in a Virginia state penitentiary. The sentence was dismissed on the condition that both of them left Virginia and did not return, a compromise neither wanted to simply accept. Over nine strenuous years, the Lovings battled against a racially prejudiced system to find their way home together.

Jeff Nichols To Direct True Story Drama 'Loving' Starring Joel Edgerton And Ruth Negga

8 May 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmaker Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter,” "Mud") might have been one of the unlikely writers of “Aquaman” (or at least one version of the script) and while there were rumors he might direct (though it sounds like James Wan will helm now), he’s pretty much out of the running as his next project has been announced.  Nichols will direct “Loving” starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga (E4's “Misfits,” and ABC's “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), a drama inspired by the documentary “The Loving Story” directed by Nancy Buirski (here’s our review) which was about a racially-charged criminal trial and a heart-rending mixed-race love story during the turbulent Civil Rights era. Here’s the official synopsis: Richard and Mildred Loving were married in June of 1958. As a result, authorities broke into their home, arrested them, and they were sentenced to a year in the state penitentiary. This sentence was suspended »

Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga to Lead Mud Director Jeff Nichols’ Loving

8 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Jeff Nichols made a big splash with his first three films, Shotgun Stories, Taking Shelter, and 2012’s Mud, which in turn led to his first studio picture, the upcoming Warner Bros. sci-fi pic Midnight Special. However, instead of going even bigger for his next film after his studio debut, it appears that Nichols is going back to the world of indies. Per Deadline, Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga have signed on to lead the drama Loving, which Nichols wrote and will direct for a September start in Virginia. Inspired by Nancy Buirski’s documentary The Loving Story, Nichols’ film is based on the 1967 civil rights case Loving vs. Virginia, which was borne out of an interracial couple being sentenced to a year in prison simply because of their marriage. They were told their sentence would be suspended if they left the state of Virginia, and they subsequently spent nine »
