Among the small roster of event movie directors using Twitter to pimp their next mega-movie, nobody is doing it better than Bryan Singer.
In addition to sharing many an image from the pre-production of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Singer regularly uses his account to share new casting information on the sequel, bypassing the usual announcements or trade news. His latest tweet combines these basic modes, backdoor-announcing several castmembers via a picture of the ensemble's headshots.
Lionsgate is still pumping out "victory portraits" showing off the many, many characters of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, set to hit theaters on November 22nd.
The latest batch we've rounded up for your edification here, dear Rogues, is concerned with the hunky men of Panem: Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, Peeta Mellark, and, of course, the ultimate teen heartthrob, President Snow.
Four new "victory portraits" from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire show off four major characters, putting Haymitch Abernathy, Cinna, and Beetee on a finely crafted chair.
Not Katniss Everdeen, though. As befits the heroine of this series and the Oscar-winning actress who plays her, Katniss Everdeen stands tall, indomitable even in an ostentatious dress.
The two biggest clotheshorses in Panem, Effie Trinket and Caesar Flickerman, are sitting still and looking almost contemplative in two new "victory portraits" promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
It's not yet a done deal, but apparently Halle Berry is very nearly locked in to reprise the role of Storm in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The Oscars are here!
That's right Rogues, Oscar fever just got terminal. The 85th Annual Academy Awards ceremony was held tonight at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles, California, with Seth MacFarlane bringing a self-referential sensibility to the hosting duties.
On a night of televised pomp and circumstance, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – a 5,765 member-strong organization that is 94% white, 77% male, and 54% over 60 years-old – anointed the winners of the 2013 Academy Awards.
Exalt in the glory of your 74th Hunger Games Tributes, wretched masses of Panem!
Two posters for this November's The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, have arrived online, playing up a faux-Panem propaganda vibe that ought to be accompanied by a bugle.
With Oscar ballots due Tuesday, and less than a week to go until the awards are handed out on Sunday, February 24th, let's take a look at how things stand in the race for the gold. This is undoubtedly the most unpredictable Oscar race in years, and there has not been this much uncertainty since Crash faced off against Brokeback Mountain back in 2006.
All the casting news relating to next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past has pertained exclusively to familiar actors from the franchise returning to their roles, but for the first truly new addition, director Bryan Singer has managed to secure one hell of a talent.
That talent: Peter Dinklage, the strong center who holds together HBO's hugely popular Game of Thrones.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is turning into a thoroughly unconventional franchise effort, a sequel to a prequel that wraps itself around the movies getting prequelized in the first place. Not only is the text itself turning into an X-pretzel, but Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men and X2, is once again directing the mutant mayhem.
Singer's now talking about just how the time travel story will work in X-Men: Days of Future Past and how it will square the often disparate continuities presented by the series so far.
