Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.
The movie is perched near the top of my “most anticipated films of 2015” list, and there’s some good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that Green Room has been picked up for distribution in the US by the terrific A24, which also boasts films such as The Witch (see that ominous trailer here), The End of the Tour, Ex Machina, and Slow West. The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.

Back in January this year, X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart thought that neither he nor co-star Ian McKellen were going to be popping up in X-Men Apocalypse, with the focus on the 1983 versions of the mutants that were rebooted in X-Men: First Class and continued into X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The new film from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier is called Green Room, and knowledge of the premise and cast was enough to place the film as number two on my “most anticipated of 2015” list, right behind Mad Max: Fury Road. The story features a punk band trapped in a backwater venue after playing an ill-advised gig, and essentially under siege from a racist gang. Patrick Stewart leads the cast as the leader of the bad guys, and Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, and Macon Blair all have parts too.
Green Room premiered at Cannes over the weekend to great acclaim, and along with the first review comments we’ve got an excellent clip from the film. 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.
