'X-Men: Days of Future Past' recently returned to Montreal for a few weeks of reshoots. This, in and of itself, is not really news as virtually every big-budget Hollywood movie actually sets aside time for reshoots in their original schedule. But, as Fox announced the reshoots, a more interesting note came along with it: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is now the second most expensive movie in the 78 years of 20th Century Fox, behind only James Cameron's 'Avatar.'
X-Men fans finally got a look at the long-awaited 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer, and while no footage of the famous mutant-hunting Sentinel robots was present, we did get a rundown of all the returning (and some new) faces in this 'X-Men: First Class' sequel. We know there was a lot to take in in the short amount of time, so director Bryan Singer has offered up his own commentary on the trailer, taking a deep dive into some bits that may have passed you by.
Fans of the cult horror film 'Trick 'r Treat' flocked to the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Monday night for a screening and fan Q&A event, but they ended up leaving with their biggest hope fulfilled. Legendary Studios announced that 'Trick 'r Treat 2' is on the way.
Almost 20 years ago, 'The Usual Suspects' hit theaters and stunned audiences, turning Kevin Spacey into an Oscar-winning actor and Bryan Singer into an A-list director. But, what if he had to do it all over again?
Responding to a fan's question on Twitter, Singer revealed that if he had to cast a 'Usual Suspects' remake in 2013, this is who he'd want for the iconic roles.
It was only Thursday that Fox announced the first 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer will drop online this coming Tuesday, October 29, and now we have more of a preview than just a six-second-long teaser. Get a load of the new photos, featuring the ultimate mutant team-up.
UPDATE: Now with even more photos below!
Keep October 29 bookmarked in your calendars, because that's when the first 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer will hit the web. However, you don't have to wait till then to get a look at the first footage! Fox has released (as is the current trend) a teaser reel of footage for the trailer, just after the first 'Captain America 2' trailer debuted. Perfect timing!
Back in December of last year, 'The Hobbit' became the first movie to be released in 48 FPS, the high-frame rate format that shoots at double the rate of traditional movies. It was supposed to be a groundbreaking step forward; an evolutionary leap for filmmaking. But, most people hated it. After a presentation at last year's CinemaCon, critics were underwhelmed saying it had the look of watching a soap opera on a badly calibrated TV at Best Buy. Probably not what Peter Jackson was hoping for.
But, 48 FPS is not going away anytime soon and today we have a report that confirms 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was shot, and will be released, in the controversial 48FPS format next summer.
Although 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' opens next summer, we still don't know too much about Bolivar Trask, the latest villain to threaten mutantkind. Played by 'Game of Thrones' star Peter Dinklage, Trask is the scientist behind the Sentinels, giant killer robots that have been menacing the X-Men for decades in the pages of the comics. But beyond that? We don't know much about his on-screen incarnation. Thankfully, Dinklage himself recently opened up about his character, revealing that one of 2014's biggest bad guys might not be such a bad guy after all.
All week long we've been talking about the hot movie franchises turning to TV to extend their longevity, though in the case of Syfy and 'X-Men' director Bryan Singer's latest co-venture, we only need a dash of something monstrous. Singer will helm a kaiju-themed monster drama pilot for Syfy titled 'Creature At Bay,' putting a new twist on the monster destruction genre for an ongoing series.
