Every teaser, trailer, and clip we've yet seen from The Counselor has been outstanding, but a new international trailer for the thriller puts them all to bed.
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.
If tomorrow's The Counselor trailer is a motorcycle screaming along a Southwestern highway, then these three clips from are the wire-taunt clothesline that sends said motorcycle pinwheeling violently over the asphalt.
By which I mean to say that 20th Century Fox has dropped three official clips from Ridley Scott's upcoming thriller in order to get folks psyched about the new trailer arriving on Wednesday.
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.
Mutants beware! The Sentinels have arrived and they're not messing around.
After Comic-Con and a well-realized viral site offered up partial glimpses at the mutant-hunting Sentinels of X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer has gone ahead and revealed a detailed, full-body image of a Sentinel that isn't even a digital effect.
The Sentinels walk among us and we can totally tell because they're eighteen feet tall.
An X-Men: Days of Future Past viral marketing effort kicked off at Comic-Con, introducing Trask Industries and a Sentinel's head to passersby in San Diego. Now, the online home of that viral effort has pulled back the curtain on the fictitious history of the Sentinels, showing off fuller looks at the machines, Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask.
A crop of nine new images from The Counselor showcase the film's very, very pretty and very, very famous cast.
Appearing in these pictures are the likes of Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, and Cameron Diaz. When Brad Pitt is the fourth name in a cast list, you know you're dealing with serious cast.
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.
20th Century Fox kept most mum on its Hall H panel, releasing virtually no information about the event in Comic-Con's most cavernous setting. In the absence of facts, rumors evolve.
The wildest of these rumors turned out to be just that, but the studio did deliver the massive cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past, bridging the gap between two franchise continuities, whipping fans into a fervor, and showing off first look footage at what appears to be the ultimate X-Men movie.
