Briefly: Monday, director Bryan Singer took a few minutes out of a busy schedule editing his latest film X-Men: Days of Future Past to answer some questions on Twitter. While most of it was pretty vanilla (the trailer will be out Tuesday, and there’s not much to say until then), Singer dug deep when he was asked about his first film, the multiple Oscar-winning The Usual Suspects.
A fan asked Singer if he were making the film today, who he would cast? His answers were pretty fantastic. Read them below. Read More »

If X-Men: Days of Future Past wasn’t a simple summer comic book movie, people would probably be talking about it having one of the greatest casts ever assembled. Multiple Oscar-winners, Tony-winners, Emmy-winners, from top to bottom, Bryan Singer‘s cast for the fifth X-Men film, out May 23, is simply insane.
Many of those stars - Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage and so many others – are featured in the first batch of stills from the film. The trailer hits on Tuesday but, until then, you have this tease and these images. Check them out below. Read More »

Peter Jackson may believe that 48 FPS is the future of cinema, but judging by the severely mixed reactions to last year’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, audiences aren’t quite sold yet. Still, the new format has its share of champions, and now a new report indicates that Bryan Singer could take a stab at HFR cinema with X-Men: Days of Future Past.
If true, that contradicts an earlier confirmation by Singer that X-Men: Days of Future Past would be shot and released in the traditional 24 FPS. So which is it? More after the jump.
Update: Fox has said that the report of Days of Future Past being presented in 48FPS is “completely false.”

The shot above is the image released to celebrate the wrap of shooting on Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, which finished it’s last days over the weekend.
The pic shows the film’s core characters. While we know that the film really brings together the cast of Singer’s original movies with the cast from the First Class prelude, Comic Con footage and other materials that have emerged since really suggest that this is a story about the evolution of Charles Xavier, with fellow First Class teammate Beast along for the ride and Wolverine as a guiding force. And so there’s your core trio.
But Days of Future Past may only be the next chapter in Fox’s evolving strategy to develop more and more films based on the Marvel characters licensed to the studio. Fox also has Fantastic Four on the way, and an X-Force movie in development. With that pic out of the way, the bigger topic is the potential connectivity developing between the X-Men movies and Fantastic Four. Read More »
Maybe it’s because it was confirmed during Comic-Con, but I still haven’t fully wrapped my mind around the fact X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature Sentinels. Though we got a glimpse in X-Men: The Last Stand, everyone’s favorite mutant super team has yet to truly tangle with the huge, evil robots on screen.
Director Bryan Singer will finally change that on May 23, 2014 when X-Men: Days of Future Past is released. The film blends the casts of the original X-Men trilogy with the stars of the prequel X-Men: First Class to tell a time traveling story that will expand and change the X-Men universe. You can read much more about the movie here but, below, check out an official blueprint that’s been released of the Sentinels. Read More »

Earlier this month, we got our very first peek at a Sentinel from X-Men: Days of Future Past thanks to the Trask Industries display at San Diego Comic-Con. Earlier this week, we got a closer look at the Sentine’s body via the Trask Industries website. Today, we can finally feast our eyes on a full-sized Sentinel, courtesy of director Bryan Singer‘s Twitter addiction. Hit the jump to check it out.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Here’s your first official video look at a couple of the big elements from Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Or, to be pedantic, one giant element and one human one. The video below is an “advertisement” for Trask Industries, a high-tech firm focused in part on national security. The head of the company is Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage, and in addition to the portrait above you’ll see him briefly in the video below.
The most famous product of Trask Industries may be Bolivar’s brainchild, the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots, and you’ll see one or two of them below, too, in their early versions. We saw some basic hints of them at Comic Con, but this is a much better look. Read More »
