Fans are sure to have many questions after they see Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but one they have going in can now be answered. At the end of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, Magneto (Michael Fassbender) sends a bullet into the spine of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). We then see Charles in a wheelchair, and we know he stays there for pretty much the rest of his life.
Fast-forward to the first footage from the sequel, Days of Future Past, in which Charles Xavier is walking again. How could that be? Well, 20th Century Fox has just released a new clip that explains. The clip also has some fantastic screaming between Magneto and Charles, putting the acting of Fassbender and McAvoy on display. Find out how Xavier can walk below. Read More »
You’ve seen the most recent (and supposedly final) trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. To complement it, stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender took part in a 20-minute question and answer session in which they fielded inquiries about the new movie. But this isn’t the place where Fox’s well-oiled marketing machine suddenly breaks down and all manner of secrets are revealed. No, this is just the place where you get a sense of how much fun it might be to hang out with these three actors for a little while. And that is pretty good, given their personalities and easy chemistry together. Read More »
Thursday, two new X-Men Days of Future Past posters were revealed. They were not very good. Today, nine more have hit the web. Nine. Unlike those two, these don’t appear to be theatrical. Instead these look like the $8 poster you’d purchase at Wal-Mart or Spencer’s Gifts and, surprise surprise, that actually makes them kind of cool. (Some of them at least.) Others are the same simple composition that plagued these two. Still, you’ll get some new glimpses at Ian Mckellen, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and others. Check out nine new X-Men Days of Future Past posters below.

In May, James McAvoy will show off his superheroic side as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past. But first, he’s gonna let out his inner villain in an Irvine Welsh adaptation.
The latest Filth red-band trailer has hit, and it shows McAvoy at his most unlikable. He plays Bruce Robertson, a sleazy, corrupt, drug-addicted cop who’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants. But the biggest obstacle standing in his way may be his own faltering grip on reality.
Jon S. Baird directed, and Imogen Poots, Eddie Marsan, Jamie Bell, and Jim Broadbent also star. Watch the video after the jump. 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 »

One of the hottest actors in the industry could be headed toward one of the coldest places on the planet. Benedict Cumberbatch is being eyed to star as George Mallory in Doug Liman‘s Everest, with Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess also in the mix.
If you’re confused because you thought Jason Clarke had already replaced Christian Bale in that movie, you’re thinking of the other Everest, by Baltasar Kormakur. That one has suffered a few setbacks but is now hoping to shoot this fall, with Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, and Jake Gyllenhaal in addition to Clarke. Get the latest on both movies after the jump.
