Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes place ten years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes which suggests the former’s stars won’t appear in the sequel. However, when Peter visited the set of the film, filmmakers said there would be some closure for characters played by James Franco and Freida Pinto.
It turns out, Franco does have a cameo. The twist is, Franco didn’t know about it. When asked about the cameo, the actor said he wasn’t aware he appeared in the film, and that the filmmakers didn’t ask his permission. Read his quotes, and the possible explanation, below. Read More »

As of last year, it looked like Anna Paquin‘s Rogue was going to be one of the few mutants not returning for X-Men: Days of Future Past. Though she’d already shot some footage, director Bryan Singer ultimately didn’t have room for her one and only scene, and so Rogue ended up on the cutting room floor.
Or so we thought. Now it appears that Rogue was never out of the movie and, in fact, that Singer couldn’t have taken her out if he’d wanted to. Find out why after the jump.

UPDATE: The coda will be in U.S. theaters as well. The story has been updated to incorporate this change.
UPDATE 2: Variety has details of the behind the scenes deal that made this happen. It is the very opposite of a far-reaching plan for a super-hero crossover. Read that info below.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is distributed by Sony. X-Men: Days of Future Past is distributed by 20th Century Fox. Under normal circumstances, that means the two films would never cross over or help each other in any way. With Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening in the UK today, however, things are a bit different. Spidey reportedly features no post-credits tease, but apparently the credits conclude with an unrelated action scene from the rival studio’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’ll do the same when it opens in the U.S. May 2. Read More »

After some intense promos and clips (and a couple of truly WTF Carl’s Jr. commercials), Fox has released one final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer.
As usual, the video has mutant heroes battling mean humans, terrifying Sentinels, and their own inner angst across two different timelines. What’s different is that this particular trailer plays up Wolverine’s role in the whole thing. Though he doesn’t tend to be much of a team player, desperate times call for desperate measures, so this one has him running around the ’70s trying to get the gang together.
Watch the new X-Men Days of Future Past trailer, which includes tons of new footage, after the jump. Read More »
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has been attached to the true 1800s revenge tale The Revenant for three years. In that time, the film has progressed little (Inarritu took time to direct October‘s Birdman), but a very important piece was just locked in. Leonardo DiCaprio has fully committed to star in the film. They’ll begin shooting in September, making the story of a man left for death in the woods a likely Fall 2015 release and potential 2016 Oscar contender. Read More »
Channing Tatum has made no secret of the fact he’d love to play Gambit in the X-Men movies. The card-throwing, womanizing Cajun has long been a fan favorite, but so far has only been seen on screen once, briefly, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now, with Bryan Singer teasing he’d love to bring Gambit into the next X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse, Tatum has revealed the possibility has taken another step forward toward reality. He’s met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about possibly playing the role and is already working on an accent. Read More »

There’s little to go on here, and the news is far from confirmed, but one persistent seeker of big studio news says that Fox is meeting with writers for pitches on a new Die Hard script. No real surprise there. While the last film sucked, it made some money, and Bruce Willis has said he would play the role of John McClane again. The big news, assuming this report is correct, is that for Die Hard 6 Fox wants to reunite Willis with his Die Hard With a Vengeance co-star, Samuel L. Jackson. Read More »
