X-Men: Deadpool 2, New Mutants, Dark Phoenix Release Dates!

3 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

This past year and a half has been a pretty solid one for 20th Century Fox. February 2016 saw the release of the R-rated hit Deadpool, that May saw the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, and most recently, we saw another R-rated flick in the form of Logan, which brought Wolverine’s story to an end. While X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t the biggest hit ever (it took in less than $600 million worldwide), the other two really seemed to solidify the studio’s approach of taking big risks with their properties.

While 2017 sees the release of only just one film, Fox has never been the studio to shoot for a regular, consistent, and ridiculous number of films each year. But that may be set to change next year. According to a report, Fox is releasing three films in 2018.

First on the list is the teen-focused spinoff, New Mutants, from director Josh Boone. This »

'American Gods': Everything You Need to Know About 2017's Trippiest TV Show

5 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Get ready for some more Peak Weird TV.

American Gods, the unconventional new drama from Starz, is the latest mind-bending show to go all-in on off-the-wall. How so, you ask? For starters, the premiere episode features, among other things, Vikings, a towering Leprechaun, a ghostly white buffalo with flaming eyes, a massive tree with talons at the end of its branches and a vicious gang of faceless cyber thugs called the Children. Also, at one point, a man is swallowed whole by a woman's vagina.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Confirmed as the Next ‘X-Men’ Movie

23 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The phoenix is once again rising from the ashes. 20th Century Fox has confirmed that the follow-up to last year’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” will be “Dark Phoenix,” which is due in theaters on November 2, 2018; also on the studio’s superhero docket are “New Mutants (April 13, 2018) and “Deadpool 2” (June 1, 2018).

Centered around the powerful mutant Jean Grey, Aka Phoenix, the storyline was previously the focus of 2006’s poorly received “X-Men: The Last Stand.” Famke Janssen played Grey in the original trilogy, while Sophie Turner of “Game of Thrones” now portrays the iconic mutant. Writer/producer Simon Kinberg previously told Entertainment Weekly that he “definitely would love to take another stab at the Dark Phoenix story.”

X-Men 7 Gets Titled Dark Phoenix, Sophie Turner Will Return

22 April 2017 12:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox is going to town today, announcing release dates for quite a few anticipated movies. Amongst these various titles, we have confirmation that Fox is planning not one, not two, but three new X-Men movies for release in 2018, mirroring what Disney and Marvel are doing with their McU. And they've finally confirmed that X-Men 7, as long rumored, is moving forward under the title Dark Phoenix.

It should be no secret that Fox has been planning a reboot of the classic Dark Phoenix storyline from the X-Men comics. 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, the third movie in the franchise, already covered this ground. But most fans thought director Brett Ratner, who took over for Bryan Singer, handled the material very poorly. Now, Fox is aiming to tell this story the right way.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dark Phoenix will have fan-favorite mutant Jean Grey in the lead. The »

'American Gods': A Character Guide to the Neil Gaiman-Bryan Fuller Starz Drama

21 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: this story contains mild spoilers from the American Gods novel on which the Starz series is based.]

There's a war coming, and the only way to win is with a whole lot of friends, and a whole lot of belief.

At least, those are the stakes at play inside the world of American Gods, the upcoming Starz series from showrunners Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (Logan), based on author Neil Gaiman's celebrated 2001 novel. Both the book and the television show follow the same premise: the old gods of myth, who were brought to America »

Clint Eastwood Boards ‘The 15:17 to Paris’ for Next Directorial Effort

20 April 2017 12:46 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Clint Eastwood is about to get back behind the camera for another true story of heroism with The 15:17 to Paris. Deadline reports Eastwood will helm the film based on the book The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes, by Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone, and Jeffrey E. Stern.

In 2015, Americans Sadler, Skarlatos and Stone were on the #9364 train from Brussels to Paris when an Isis terrorist boarded with an Ak-47, a pistol, a box cutter, and enough ammunition to kill all 500 people on board. The three American friends took it upon themselves to charge the gunman and stop him.

This will be yet another chance for Eastwood to engage in a bit of flag-waving while focusing on a true story of ordinary men thrust into extraordinary situations, following the trend of his 2014’s American Sniper, about U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, »

A De-Aged Sigourney Weaver Could Feature In Alien: Covenant Sequels

17 April 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the very near future, one of the greatest film franchises to ever toe the line between the science fiction and horror genres will make its much anticipated return when Alien: Covenant graces cinemas. And as is the case with any series that has had the good fortune of being able to span several decades, speculation is already running rampant at to what future installments may entail. Actually, it feels pretty natural to do so here when you consider that this is apparently the latest of four films bridging the gap between Prometheus and Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic, Alien.

As with any enduring property, there’s usual one or two faces people associate with such a thing and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t think of Sigourney Weaver whenever Alien comes up in a conversation? Apparently, the folks at Empire Magazine do as well and had the most interesting »

X-Men Movie New Mutants to Start Filming This Summer

16 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It didn’t take long for studio executives to realize the success of Logan and decide that a whole new crop of X-Men movies is ripe for the taking.   Writer and director Josh Boone’s new X-Men feature New Mutants may start filming as early as this summer.   It’s no surprise that 20th Century Fox is moving ahead with multiple X-Men projects after Deadpool and Logan, but starting as early as this summer is a welcomed surprise. Given that Hugh Jackman is apparently done with his Wolverine character, it’s time to introduce a new crop of mutants and “pass the baton” if

Judd Apatow and Kevin Smith: Filmmakers most overdue their first Oscar nomination

14 April 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Continuing on with a yearly series I like to do on those deserving of Academy Award wins or nominations, it’s time to turn attention to filmmakers. Actors and actresses are the sexier group, but writers and directors are the backbone of the industry. There are plenty who have never been cited by the Academy, so that will be the focus today. I’ll be running down ten filmmakers who I feel are due a nomination. In a handful of cases, they’ll be more comedic storytellers, since Oscar voters can often overlook them. That’s a real shame in my mind, but that could be a piece for another day. Anyway, you’ll see them below, and obviously know that your own mileage may vary. So, without further delay, here goes nothing… Here now are the ten writers and/or directors most due for their first Oscar nomination: 10. Kevin Smith – Hear me out. »

Fun Logan Video Presents A Very Different, More Musical Ending To Wolverine’s Saga

14 April 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that the dust has ostensibly settled from Wolverine’s last stand, and fans the world over have lapped up the furious finale to Hugh Jackman’s saga in iconic adamantium claws, the folks over at How It Should Have Ended have trained their sights on Logan.

James Mangold’s ruddy excellent and R-rated western effectively delivered on those lofty expectations early last month, wrapping up Wolverine’s saga in a way that was both bittersweet and, ultimately, deeply satisfying to those viewers who have followed Hugh Jackman’s X-Men saga for the past 17 years. Much of that can be attributed to both Patrick Stewart and newcomer Dafne Keen, who turned in show-stopping performances as Charles Xavier and the tenacious Laura/X-23, respectively.

After spending much of Logan on the run from nefarious forces (read: Transigen and those dastardly Reavers), Wolverine’s harrowing journey takes him to North Dakota, where »

The SuperManual: Zander Rice

13 April 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Who he is: Dr. Zander Rice

His power: Dr. Rice is a brilliant biologist and geneticist with an expertise in mutation; however, he has no superpowers of his own.

His story: The head of the Transigen project, Rice appears in Logan as a scientist seeking to clone children with DNA from prominent mutants, most notably Wolverine. Despite his successes—including the young Wolverine clone known as X-23—Rice eventually abandons the kids in favor of a mindlessly violent adult clone of Logan in his prime. Confronting Wolverine and the escaped kids, Rice reveals that he’s responsible for the slow extinction of the mutant race, lacing American food and drink with retroviruses that block X-gene mutations. His efforts are rewarded with a bullet to the head, courtesy of Wolverine.

Played by: Richard E. Grant

Currently, Zander Rice is: Dead, at least as far as 2029 is concerned.

The SuperManual: Donald Pierce

13 April 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Who he is: Donald Pierce, leader of the Reavers

His power: Pierce is a highly trained mercenary with very little in the way of scruples. He also possesses a mechanical arm that seems stronger than the standard-issue flesh-and-blood model.

His story: The head of security for the shadowy Transigen project (under Zander Rice), Pierce is tasked in Logan with recovering fugitive test subject X-23 from Wolverine, the man she was cloned from. Despite his being a vocal “fan” of Logan, his task inevitably ends in violence; despite Pierce’s skills and highly trained crew, it also inevitably ends in his brutal death at the hands of the mutant children he hoped to recapture.

Played by: Boyd Holbrook

Currently, Donald Pierce is: Dead in 2029, presumably a dangerous operative some time in the past.

Where will we see him next? You can never say never with X-Men characters. That being said ...

Richard Gere Has A New Career, Thanks To Two Israeli Filmmakers

13 April 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This is the story of how two Israeli filmmakers transformed a Buddhist movie star into Bob Dylan, a New York homeless man, a Manhattan Jewish fixer, and a politician with family issues. It started when Oren Moverman wrote “I’m Not There” with director Todd Haynes, who cast Richard Gere as one of six versions of Bob Dylan.

Several years later, Gere spotted Moverman across a crowded room. “It was an Academy event in New York,” Gere said. “It was a cocktail thing for new members.” Moverman introduced him to Oscar-nominated Joseph Cedar (”Footnote”). They wound up talking Middle East politics. “The three of us were getting along great,” said Gere, who told the men, “If you want to do something that has to do with the Middle East, even in a tangential way, talk to me.”

Shane Black’s The Predator script said to have a “wicked sense of humour”

12 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shane Black’s screenplay for his upcoming take on The Predator franchise is said to have “a wicked sense of humour”, according to one of the film’s stars.

Predator seems to be one of those series, like Terminator or Alien, that we will always go back to — either with original directors feeling the urge to continue what they started, or new talents coming along to try their hand.

There is a lot of positivity surrounding Shane Black’s attempt, with his movies known for their sharp wit and dynamic energy.

Well it seems his take on Predator won’t be any different, as star Sterling K. Brown has spoken to EW about the humour found in Black’s script.

“Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humour to it, which I love about it. »

It’s Official: Josh Brolin Will Play The Role Of Cable In Deadpool 2

12 April 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Josh Brolin has landed the coveted role of Cable in Deadpool 2, seeing off competition from Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe (The Mummy), Brad Pitt and Stranger Things star David Harbour.

Brolin now joins Ryan Reynolds and Zazie Beetz (Domino) for the David Leitch-directed sequel, which is expected to get the cameras rolling in Vancouver come June. Marking his second high-profile Marvel Comics character after Thanos, sources close to THR claim Josh Brolin has closed a four-picture deal that will likely bring about roles in the much-touted X-Force ensemble movie and Deadpool 3. And though they’re intricately connected under Fox’s overarching universe, screenwriter Rhett Reese has been quick to point out in the past that the two feature films will be more different than alike. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves; with Domino and Cable now finally – finally – locked in, »

'Logan' Gets 'Les Miserables' Treatment in 'How It Should Have Ended'

12 April 2017 9:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Logan featured one of the most powerful finales of a superhero movie ever, and now the YouTube series How It Should Have Ended has taken it to create one of its finest installments yet. 

Playing off of Hugh Jackman's musical theater background, the YouTube series sets the Logan finale to music from Les Miserables — and good lord, though this is a comedy YouTube series, it's surprisingly emotional. 

And there's a special bonus at the end, giving people the onscreen X-Men collaboration they've been clamoring for.

Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals he rejected cameo in Shane Black’s The Predator

7 April 2017 2:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming slate has took a bit of a hammering this past week or so, what with Paramount letting his option on a Terminator Genisys sequel lapse, the plug being pulled on The Legend of Conan, and the action icon stating he won’t appear in The Expendables 4 unless Sylvester Stallone is on board.

Well, it seems we can also officially rule out a potential cameo in next year’s The Predator, with Arnie revealing to Yahoo! Movies that he did meet with director Shane Black about a return as Dutch, but rejected the opportunity.

“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered,” said Arnold. “So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that. »
