How is 20th Century Fox supposed to compete with all the hot fire Marvel Studios is spitting on Guardians of the Galaxy?
With a half-dozen images focusing on the 1973 chunk of X-Men: Days of Future Past. By extension, with a single image of a blue, nearly naked Jennifer Lawrence wielding a pistol as Raven Darkholme aka Mystique.
We've got enough X-Men: Days of Future Past news to fill the Blackbird today.
Among the bits of promotional sweetness today are one behind the scenes image featuring Nicholas Hoult, as well as four baseball card-style pictures of James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, and Daniel Cudmore.
More intriguingly, though, director Matthew Vaughn is speaking publicly for the first time about his reasons for opting out of returning to direct the prequel-sequel.
Five official new images from X-Men: Days of Future Past elegantly illustrate the time-travel shenanigans of this latest X-movie by showcasing the old alongside the new.
By which I mean to say that these images feature X-Men: First Class players James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as X-Men elder statesmen Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen.
The first TV spot promoting this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past has BAMFed its way online.
The rub, though, is that it's a Japanese TV spot that feels very much like the first teaser trailer, right down to the music and much of the footage teased. Still, it's got plenty of mutants getting into shenanigans.
Assassin's Creed has popular source material, a leading man, and even a summer 2015 a release date.
Now it might actually have a director, too.
Since last fall, J.J. Abrams has been dispatching Imperial probe droids to the farthest corners of the galaxy in search of actors for Star Wars: Episode VII.
Today brings yet more recognizable names to throw on the casting bonfire, as well as word that, thanks to overhauls in the screenplay, none of the roles he's seeking to fill are actually the leads in the first Star Wars of a new trilogy under the auspices of Disney. Instead, the new additions will be supporting players in Episode VII, taking a backseat to Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia.
Two new images from this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past show off familiar X-Men and X-Men: First Class players Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and even Nicholas Hoult in full-on Beast mode.
One of these two pictures also reveals an all-new mutant: Quicksilver, the super-speedy character played by Evan Peters.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is the biggest assembly of familiar mutants in the fourteen-year cinematic history of the X-Men.
But it will apparently feature one less mutant than we thought, as Southern belle Rogue, to be played once again by Anna Paquin, has been excised from the latest X-Men sequel. That's right, our namesake is no longer a part of the next X-movie.
Bryan Singer is doubling down on directing X-Men movies.
Since the man who started off the series thirteen years ago announced that X-Men: Apocalypse will hit in May 2016, we sort of assumed that he'd be overseeing the follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Turns out that is indeed the case, and some details of the Apocalypse story have come to light, too.
Prepare thyself for an X-Men movie the very title of which thunders with epic promise.
The director who kicked off the Merry Mutants' theatrical franchise announced today that X-Men: Apocalypse will arrive on May 27, 2016.
Stupendous. But what is X-Men: Apocalypse?
