The X-Men: Apocalypse situation is interesting — director Bryan Singer “announced” the film via tweet, but parent studio Fox has yet to officially confirm or comment on the project, other than the register of a release date (May 27, 2016) that showed up on BoxOfficeMojo. The film is a presumed sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the title suggests the inclusion of X-Men villain Apocalypse, but that’s almost all we know.
Now Singer has tweeted an image of a “late night story session” for the film, showing him at work with Simon Kinberg, who we know has a big role in Fox’s superhero movie plans. Also in the pic are X2: X-Men United screenwriters Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris. Read More »

Bryan Singer isn’t just the guy that got to break the news about X-Men: Apocalypse — he’ll be the one to direct it, too.

Hit the jump to get all the details.
Briefly: Details are scarce but director Bryan Singer just announced that a new X-Men movie, called X-Men: Apocalypse, will be out in 2016. The precise date being reported is May 27, 2016, about two years after the upcoming release X-Men: Days of Future Past. Read more below.

Big superhero franchises don’t come cheap, but just how not-cheap they are can vary quite a bit. The first X-Men had a budget of just $75 million in 2000, according to Box Office Mojo, while 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand cost more than twice as much at $210 million. And now, the newest entry in the series could be the costliest of all.
According to a new report, X-Men: Days of Future Past won’t just be one of the most expensive superhero movies of all time. It’ll be 20th Century Fox’s second priciest project ever, coming in after 2009′s Avatar. Hit the jump to find out why that might be.

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.
