The first trailer for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past hit the Internet yesterday, and there was a lot to take in. What better way to explore what the trailer has to offer than having the film’s director talk us through it? (more…)
It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! The trailer for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past is upon us… and it is has EPIC written all over it. Seriously, I was not expecting it to be THAT good. (more…)
There’s a whole new batch of production stills coming out of Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past with lot’s of details for Fan-boys and Fan-gals to speculate about. There’s even a bar-chested Hugh Jackman, who would have ever thought that would happen? (more…)
Bryan Singer isn’t one to let the competition hog the Internet, so hot on the heels of Marvel releasing the first teaser trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Singer has put the first official clips from X-Men: Days of Future Past out there for all to see. (more…)
With the current earnings for Hugh Jackman‘s latest movie The Wolverine grossing $361,437,539 world-wide, triple its production budget of $115,000, producers of Bryan Singer‘s upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past must be snug in their beds with big-office-box-numbers dancing in their heads.
Just thinking about the combination of the cast of the original X-Men movies including Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan with the next generation (or should that be younger generation) James McAovy and Michael Fassbender is mind-blowing in its awesomeness. Throw in Hugh Jackman as a bridge between the two casts, the incredible Peter Dinklage as the villain, and you have yourself a blockbuster movie.
Hugh Jackman recently sat down with Access Hollywood and literally gushed with praise for Singer, the past X-Men movies, and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
I know, having sat at Comic-Con on that panel with that extraordinary cast, I keep saying it’s like two movies in one, but with the size of it it’s really three in one. It really is going to blow people away because of the story. Bryan Singer, I think, is going to become the first director to make increasingly better movies in a franchise, I’m not sure if there’s anyone else that’s done it.”
Check out the interview below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
Yes, Hugh does admit to lifting 460 pounds. Holy crap, that is incredible.
X-Men:Days of Future Past hits theater screens on May 23rd, 2014, starring Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman and Lucas Till.
Seemingly out of left field, the BBC and executive producer Sam Mendes (Skyfall) have developed an incredibly huge production within the Focus Features series. The Hollow Crown adapts William Shakespeare’s four classic plays, Richard II, Henry IV Parts 1 and 2, and Henry V, and brings them to the small screen with an excellent cast that includes Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, and Ben Whishaw, as the titular kings along with other notable stars Patrick Stewart, John Hurt, Simon Russell Beale, and Rory Kinnear.
Take a look at the trailer below and you’ll see how incredibly huge this production was, spanning the reigns of three kings with a total running time of over 500 minutes of screen time. The series has numerous nominations for BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) including Ben Whishaw for leading actor and Simon Russell Beale for supporting actor, and the Richard II episode for Best Single Drama.
The Hollow Crown will air on PBS’ Great Performances starting Friday September 20th, so set your DVR accordingly. The series will also be released on iTunes, VOD, and DVD on August 27th.

My understanding is what we’ve got here is the same footage as what was screened in Hall H for FOX’s panel at SDCC, at least part of it. This very short clip, which appeared on YouTube earlier today only to be promptly pulled by FOX’s lawyers, then later uploaded to a more dubious video hosting site, is the very beginning of the footage screened at Comic Con.
Give the blurry, bald head of Charles Xavier a click in order to view the footage. Do it now! Before it’s taken down again! [Note: only click play, don't bother installing whatever crap they try and trick you into.]
Remember back in April when Bryan Singer released that behind the scenes shot of Sir Patrick Stewart? It wasn’t just to tease us X-Men fans before Stewart started filming his scenes for X-Men: Days of Future Past, it was part of a series of character portraits, right in time for Comic Con.
Originally hosted on the official Tumblr page for X-Men, but now seemingly gone, the set revealed DOFP stars Ian McKellen, Daniel Cudmore, Patrick Stewart and newcomer Omar Sy in their alternate timeline attire with Hugh Jackman and his dual timelines also on display. Shortly after that, and thanks to Superhero Hype, X-Men: First Class alumni Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till were also revealed. Take a first look at everyone below.

ABOVE: While preparing today’s column, I had a thought: “What if I went into Etsy’s ‘Geekery’ category and sorted by ‘highest price?’ The answer is this stained glass Iron Man panel. It will set you back $3,500 with 10% of that going to charity. It’s certainly not in my budget, but it’s rather awesome to look at.
It was a sad time when comic book fans sat down to watch X-Men: The Last Stand. A) It was a terrible, terrible movie and B) because they fucking killed off Charles Xavier. Good lord, that was a stupid thing to do. I still shake a fist at director Brett Ratner for slapping fans across the face with such blasphemy. Anyway, with his death we assumed we’d no longer see Sir Patrick Stewart return as the resident father figure to the mutant heroes. Like most departed comic-book characters, however, we knew he wouldn’t stay dead. Good ‘ole “Wheels” will be back for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The question is “how”?
Stewart recently attended Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas this past weekend, and while he didn’t flat-out say how his return was decided, he did go on to say it would be explained:
“It’s interesting, its possibly 6 or 7 years since X-Men 3 when you recall Charles Xavier was vaporized by… what’s her name, Jean Grey. And you are asking yourself, ‘Well if you were vaporized, how can you be in the next X-Men movie?’ Anybody got any ideas how that came about? There will be an explanation, but it was a little puzzling to me cause I thought my X-Men days were over, but not so. So something to look forward to, cause there’s not much to look forward to these days really.”
“I thought my X-Men days were over” Oh Stewart, you silly genius you! Check out the entire video below where Patrick compliments his co-stars and where a fan in the audience decides to shout out his theory, to which Stewart acknowledges. We aren’t sure if it’s true or not, but seeing as we all know what we see in movies is true, Patrick could have simply used his psychic powers to plant that theory.
