Lionsgate has made it official, announcing that Julianne Moore is joining both installments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
With eleven weeks until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire brings Katniss Everdeen back to theaters, IAR is starting to feel rebellious.
To support the revolutionary spirit sweeping through the Districts in the sequel, we're ready to stand up to the man in Panem by giving away some tickets to the film's star-studded premiere in Los Angeles on November 18th.
Director and prolific tweeter Bryan Singer has kept audiences updated with many a peek behind the curtain at X-Men: Days of Future Past, and an effective viral campaign has teased the Sentinels plentifully.
But today we have something a little different: an actual promotional image from the prequel sequel uniting two generations of onscreen X-Men as Hugh Jackman, Jame McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult convene in a slick hallway that we haven't seen since X-Men: The Last Stand.
Show me all the blueprints. Show me all the blueprints. Show me all the blueprints of a Sentinel cranium in next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
"Remember who the real enemy is," cautions Haymitch Abernathy as a new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer comes to a close.
He needn't have bothered. Though this relatively short trailer teases the competition-hardened Tributes of the Quarter Quell, the emphasis is on greater happenings in Panem, which is coming apart at the seams as the Districts begin to rise up against the Capitol.
Without a doubt, X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the most anticipated movies of 2014!
The film is a sequel to X-Men: First Class, as well as the original X-Men trilogy and The Wolverine as some of it is set after the end credit scene of the recent Hugh Jackman movie and X-Men: The Last Stand. However, because it features a time travel element, it is also a prequel to the original X-Men trilogy because part of the movie takes place before the events of the first three films, as well as the two Wolverine spin-offs.
The highly anticipated film takes its story from the beloved two-issue comic by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, which finds our heroes in a dystopian alternate future where mutants are incarcerated in internment camps and an adult Kitty Pryde transfers her mind into her younger self in order to help the X-Men prevent a fatal moment in history that triggers anti-mutant hysteria. But from what we know so far about the upcoming project, it seems that Wolverine’s consciousness goes back in time instead of Pryde’s. Logan then finds an emotionally lost Professor X in the ‘70s, following the events of First Class, and must inspire him to fulfill his potential in order to avoid the dystopian alternate timeline.
X-Men: First Class producer Bryan Singer, who also helmed the first two films in the franchise, directs X-Men: Days of Future Past. In addition to starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, the movie will also include appearances by original trilogy actors Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus), as well as new cast members Peter Dinklage (Bolivar Trask), Omar Sy (Bishop), Fan Bingbing (Blink), Adan Canto (Sunspot), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), and Josh Helman (William Stryker). However, the movie will primarily star returning First Class actors James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), and the recently announced Lucas Till, reprising his role as Alex “Havok” Summers
I had a chance to sit down and speak with Lucas Till while he was promoting his latest film Paranoia, which also stars Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, and Harrison Ford, and opens in theaters on August 16th. While we will run my conversation with Till about Paranoia closer to the film’s release, we wanted to let you know now what the actor had to say about his work on X-Men: Days of Future Past. Till spoke candidly about the upcoming movie, his delight at being asked back after First Class, when he finished shooting, his contributions to the project, his character’s powers, whether he is a hero or villain, working with Bryan Singer, being a comic book fan, which original trilogy cast members he worked with, the recently released photo of him on set, and if there will be mention of Havok’s brother Cyclops in the upcoming film.
The inaugural trailer for David O. Russell's American Hustle is now online.
Though this first look at footage from the director's ensemble doesn't give any real idea of the story, it does indicate that American Hustle doesn't just embrace its late-1970s/early-1980s setting. Rather, it takes the setting out to a fancy steak dinner and dancing at the hottest club before a night of sweaty passion, all set to the sweet sweet sounds of Led Zeppelin.
David O. Russell's next movie, American Hustle, takes the tremendous casts from his last two movies and smooshes them together to make one mega-cast.
As proof, the first official images from the movie show off Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Bradley Cooper, all decked out in late-seventies/early-eighties regalia.
The time-traveling prequel-sequel concept of X-Men: Days of Future Past could befuddle folks who aren't already salivating over Bryan Singer's return to the franchise.
The first teaser posters for the latest X-Men adventure convey the basics quite nicely, presenting the Professor X and Magneto of future and past with Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, and Michael Fassbender.
One of the biggest surprises to happen at Comic-Con International 2013 in San Diego took place on Saturday when director Bryan Singer, screenwriter Simon Kinberg, and actors James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Sir Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Halle Berry (Storm), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Omar Sy (Bishop), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), and Peter Dinklage (Bolivar Trask) all appeared on stage together in Hall H to discuss their highly anticipated upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is scheduled for release on May 23rd, 2014.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had a chance to attend a special press conference, along with several other members of the media, before the panel to hear what the cast had to say about X-Men: Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, and Ellen Page discussed the upcoming movie, reprising their roles, how their characters have changed, reuniting with their fellow cast members, combining the two franchises, time travel, continuity, their costumes, and much more.
