We’ve already seen what X-Men: Apocalypse‘s Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) looks like decked out in ’80s fashion. Today, Bryan Singer has shared a look at two more of the film’s new characters, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Jubilee (Lana Condor).

It was bound to happen, and now there’s some news: a Kingsman sequel is in the works at Fox. Given that the Matthew Vaughn adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ The Secret Service comic series was a surprise hit both at home and even more so internationally, to the tune of a $400m overall haul as of the close of this past weekend, a sequel makes sense. But it is still early in the film’s development, so we’re left wondering whether or not Vaughn will return. Read More »
X-Men Days of Future Past wiped most of Bryan Singer‘s X-Men universe slate clean. He’s now filming X-Men: Apocalypse, which has recast younger versions of many of the mutants who feature in his early movies. After that, the next Wolverine film will likely be the last time Hugh Jackman puts on the adamantium claws. Do you see a pattern here?
A new rumor has surfaced that X-Men Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 will shut the book on the world Singer created back in 2000. Then, everything moving forward will be tied to the X-Men First Class world, which would likely include Gambit, Deadpool and maybe even Fantastic Four. Read more about the X-Men movies rumor below.

It goes without saying that James Cameron has a lot more story to tell in the universe first seen in Avatar. As it stands now, three sequel films are in development, and if all goes according to plan they will be released each year starting in 2017. However, according to one of Cameron’s frequent collaborators, there may be more.
James Horner, the Oscar-winning composer of Titanic who also did Avatar and Aliens, said that Cameron currently has a script for a fourth sequel – let’s call it Avatar 5 – that he’s trying to condense back into the previously planned three sequels.

One little bit of ad copy can have a huge effect on a fanbase. For years, the precise nature of the stretching powers enjoyed (or endured) by Reed Richards has always been one of those things that Marvel Comics were able to explain away with a little jargon-laced pseudo-science. It didn’t really matter precisely how he stretched, for the most part, but it was fun to talk about.
Today, people had less fun talking about the details of the new Fantastic Four movie thanks to a sentence on the film’s official website. That line suggested that Mr. Fantastic’s powers are quite different in the film. But writer/producer Simon Kinberg has spoken up to say that things really aren’t changed, and to insist on one thing: “Reed Richards stretches in this movie.”

Before we go any further, it looks like the next Wolverine solo movie, the sequel to The Wolverine, may just be called Wolverine. Or that’s how one trade is referring to it for now; the title may change. Along with that little nugget, a new screenwriter for the film has been revealed, as Michael Green (Blade Runner 2, Green Lantern) is writing the script in collaboration with director James Mangold.

I just got home from Las Vegas, where for the last week I had attended the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year. The convention is packed with talks about subjects such as how to maximize profits, and features a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond. Companies even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
Thursday morning we saw a presentation from 20th Century Fox showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Peanuts, Poltergeist, Paper Towns, Hitman: Agent 47, Victor Frankenstein, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Fantastic 4, The Martian, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and David O Russell’s Joy and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free 20th Century Fox CinemaCon 2015 reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Slowly but surely, the world will remember Avatar. It’s kind of hard to believe that a film that grossed over $2 billion worldwide needs to be reintroduced to audiences but by the time the second film comes out in December 2017, eight years will have passed between movies. And with three sequels on the way, as well as a permanent Disney theme park, many people have lots of money riding on James Cameron‘s world of Pandora.
Now, it seems like one of the first ways people will be re-introduced to Avatar is a traveling exhibition that will allow fans to literally walk around Pandora, interacting with the animals and plant life that made the film so unique and evocative.
Below, read the full press release on the Avatar exhibition. Read More »
