X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t hit theaters until May 27, but the first reviews will arrive on the evening of May 9, showcasing a fair amount of confidence from Fox — particularly with Civil War arriving this weekend. While we wait for the first reactions from critics to trickle in, Jennifer Lawrence has released a new clip from Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel, featuring Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Nightcrawler and Ben Hardy’s Angel battling it out in a cage match.
We have a pretty stacked summer ahead of us, kicking off in May with Captain America: Civil War, followed by the (hopefully) equally epic X-Men: Apocalypse. The mutants of First Class and Days of Future Past are no longer the new kids on the block, as younger versions of Jean Grey, Scott Summers and more are getting in on the action in the upcoming sequel. To better familiarize you with the lineup, 20th Century Fox has released several new character posters which boast various mutants old and new along with their respective powers.
Following the reveal of nine different Empire magazine covers for X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox has released a few more images from the upcoming conclusion to the new X-Men trilogy, featuring another look at Ben Hardy’s Angel, Oscar Isaac’s En Sabah Nur (aka the titular Apocalypse) and some brand new costumes for the heroic mutant crew.
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve gotten some sneak peeks at X-Men: Apocalypse via photos in Entertainment Weekly, featuring new characters like Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, Olivia Munn’s Psylocke, and Alexandra Shipp’s Storm. But what about the other new, young mutants? 20th Century Fox has released a gallery of high-res photos featuring Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, Cyclops and more.
Today marks the first day of filming on X-Men: Apocalypse and to celebrate the beginning of a new X-Men adventure, director Bryan Singer revealed the first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as your favorite teleporting mutant, Nightcrawler. BAMF!
Put Michael Fassbender in a movie, and it’s pretty much guaranteed that we’ll watch it, especially if he’s playing something of a bad ass. That’s the case in Slow West, a new indie western starring Fassbender as a gun-toting stranger who assists a young Scottish traveler in the search for the girl he loves. The first trailer has officially arrived, and although Fassbender helping a young man in his quest for love sounds swoon-worthy, this film has a bit of an edge.
X-Men: Apocalypse is continuing the tradition of recasting classic X-Men as younger characters (Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Tye Sheridan as Cyclops), so it should be no surprise that another fan favorite is getting recast. Director Bryan Singer announced on Instagram that Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) has signed on to star as Nightcrawler, a sleazy Hollywood paparazzi who will stop at nothing to get his shot. (Wait...)
Following up Drafthouse Films' Oscar-nominated documentary 'Act of Killing,' one of their exciting new releases is 'The Congress,' from 'Waltz with Bashir' director Ari Folman. Now we have the first trailer for the trippy and contemplative new film starring Robin Wright as an aging actress who makes the difficult decision to sell her image off to Hollywood, unaware of the consequences this new technology will bring.
It looks like the casting process has begun in earnest for the latest 'Planet of the Apes' film 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.' We recently heard that Jason Clarke joined the cast, and today we've learned that young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee has landed a role.
Chloe Moretz might be reuniting with her 'Let Me In' co-star Kodi Smit-McPhee for upcoming indie drama 'The Wilderness of James' for writer and first-time director Michael Johnson -- that is, if she can clear her very busy schedule.
