Right now X-Men: Apocalypse is in theaters, but this weekend it’ll have to do battle with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their cartoonish sequel. It’s likely that the X-Men won’t be able to top the box office again, but 20th Century Fox is already focused on the future of the X-Men franchise anyway.
The next X-Men sequel has been said to take place in the ’90s and may also head to space for a more loyal take on the Dark Phoenix saga. Plus there’s the delayed Gambit sequel, a Deadpool sequel, and the New Mutants coming as well. But director Bryan Singer thinks another longtime franchise character deserves their own movie: Mystique. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Blockbuster franchises can do great things for a filmmaker’s career, but most of them don’t want to remain stuck churning out sequels for the rest of their careers. Case in point: After four X-Men movies, Bryan Singer is ready to step away from the X-universe for a little while. “I’d like to do something different,” he said, while adding that he could still return in the future.
Meanwhile, Sam Mendes, who directed Skyfall and Spectre, says he’s done with Bond for good, for real this time. Read their comments below. Read More »
Here’s a sentence I never thought I would write: X-Men: Apocalypse may be a worse movie than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film that I haven’t been shy about disliking in a public setting. And yet, the latest film in the increasingly convoluted X-Men series forced me to consider a big question – do I prefer the awful movie that shoots for big ideas and belly flops on the pavement or the awful movie that tries nothing, risks nothing, and is content to just exist without even trying to try something special? I have an answer.

X-Men: Apocalypse took the top spot at the box office this holiday weekend, pulling down just over $65 according to Box Office Mojo, blowing away Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, which is doing nowhere near the big business of the first film. Critics haven’t been too kind to the X-Men sequel (though I found it to be as entertaining as it was flawed), but plenty of comic book movie fans still venture to the theater to see it for themselves.
Even if some of you fans didn’t like the movie, I think we can all agree that Quicksilver’s scene was the best moment in the entire flick. If you want to see how they pulled it off, which actually features more practical effects and wire work than you might imagine, check out an X-Men Apocalypse Quicksilver featurette after the jump.
