With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy’s first trailer last week, we kinda forgot all about (briefly) one of the other superhero movies coming out this summer: X-Men: Days of Future Past. A French website aims to change that with a bunch of new shots from the film, including a snap of Quicksilver played by Evan Peters. That’s no big deal, right? But there are bigger questions that a couple of the photos raise, like the sight of a certain girl with Quicksilver… You know who we’re talking about. (more…)
FINALLY. We’ve been hearing about Joe Lynch‘s Knights of Badassdom for over two years now. Back in July we got our latest update, but today there’s a release date: Janurary 21st. Only a few weeks after that the film will also get a VOD release on February 11th. Check out the announcement video below. (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…)
Brace yourselves folks, for there is a new Leprechaun-themed movie coming. This time around, however, it won’t be Warwick Davis in a crappy costume running around killing people. In fact, it looks like Game of Thrones fan-favorite, Peter Dinklage will be taking on the leprechaun role, and it won’t be a campy horror flick. (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.
While in one Marvel movie franchise there’s debate over who’ll be Ultron’s creator, there’s no question who creates the Sentinels for FOX‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past: Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). And with the newly created site for Trask Industries, www.trask-industries.com, you can learn all about him and his genetic/security company’s mission. The viral site is likely only the beginning of what I’m sure will be an onslaught of Days of Future Past marketing leading up to the film’s release on May 23rd, 2014.
Perusing the site you can learn of the latest innovations in Sentinel technology, check out their specs, and how they’re used to contain mutants. You can also browse Trask Industries’ work with genetics and controlling the mutant gene. In addition to the info, there’s lots of new photos and videos, of which you’ll find a sampling below the cut.
Most interesting, is this timeline of events leading to Trask Industries development of the Sentinel,
So we’ll see the Sentinels beginnings in the past, but also their full deadly potential in the future. Does this also date the future timeline as occurring around 2020? Looks like it, with the past’s timeline set around 1973.

When we first saw it, that image of Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage in full live-action-role-play garb we knew Knights of Badassdom was going to be a fun movie. Once we saw the trailer, featuring a blend of comedy, demons, and several notable TV and film stars, we were hooked and all waited for the film to be released. And we waited, and waited, the film should have been released months ago, Hell, a couple of years ago. Sadly, without a distributor, the movie sat undisturbed, gathering dust on the shelf, while fans practically begged for it to be released.
Starring Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Summer Glau, Steve Zahn, and Community’s Danny Pudi, Knights of Badassdom has been scheduled for release a couple of times over the past few years, although IndieVest Pictures Wade Bradley reported the movie was still in ”post-production” as of September of last year. There must have been a lot of work to do as the official trailer earlier this year failed to entice or pick up any backers to distribute the comedy, further delaying the release we’ve been patiently waiting for. Finally, after several years of shopping around to potential buyers, Entertainment One, just last week, picked up the rights to distribute and release Knights of Badassdom.
No official release date has been announced since EOne picked up the film, but it’s progress of a sort. Perhaps there’s a chance, even a slim one, that we’ll actually see this reach theaters by the end of the year. Here’s the trailer and the official synopsis.
If that trailer doesn’t sway you, check out the official synopsis:
A huge group of dedicated, costumed LARP-ers (Live Action Role Players), dressed like knights, elves & various characters, give up their cell phones and take to the woods for the Central New Jersey Knights of Badassdom Adventure Society, where they are set to re-enact a dungeons and dragons scenario right out of the mythical Middle Ages. After being dumped by his sexy girlfriend Beth (Margarita Levieva), Joe (Kwanten) reluctantly decides to join Eric (Zahn) and his Larping friends (Dinklage, Pudi) in the woods rather than stay behind and feel sorry for his newly single status. There he meets hot, ass-kicking, intimidating huntress LARPer Gwen (Firefly’s Summer Glau), and finds himself a surreal adventure wilder than he ever imagined when a make-believe wizard casts an all-too-real spell from an ancient book he bought on eBay, releasing an actual demon with a taste for human blood — and souls — that starts systematically decimating the players in this suddenly deadly “game.” Will our guys become the heroes they have been pretending to be before time runs out?

There’s no rest for the weary or the wicked as production on director Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past resumes shooting this week after a weekend whirlwind of panels and appearances at SDCC 2013. Take a look at this behind the scenes look at what happens when the younger Magneto (Micheal Fassbender) takes a walk in a Montreal park.
The guys coming at Fassbender appear to be pointing guns and they may just be your every day security guards or policemen. I don’t see any of the tell-tale white CGI balls so I wouldn’t imagine these are Sentinels. I really hope their not human sized Sentinels, that would suck balls.
Take a look at the video below and find out what happens when Magneto tells you to: “Talk to the Hand!”
X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theater screens May 23rd, 2014, and stars a whole slew of well-known and up and coming stars, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, 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.
Wow, that is a lot of star power.
Another convention is in the books for San Diego. One of the highlights was the X-Men: Days of Future Past panel. Missed it did you? Don’t feel bad. Recordings have finally begun making their way online and we have one!
Featuring the entire cast of Bryan Singer‘s 2014 sequel, with introductions to the cast by Bryan, the packed hall was treated to just how excited the actors themselves are for the fans and the film. Oh, and when we say entire cast, we mean the whole bloody cast. From the knight glory of both Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen to the Hollywood star power of James McAvoy, Ellen Page, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Peter Dinklage, everyone was on hand to promote the Days of Future Past.
The video begins with a presentation of The Wolverine and fellow DOFP star Hugh Jackman and from 16 minutes in goes right into the Future Past panel. Check it out below.
Can you feel that buzz in the air? We are two weeks out from San Diego Comic Con and every nerd, whether they be attending or not, is in a frenzy. Even the creators coming to share their wares at the con are getting a little antsy. George R.R. Martin, you may know him from HBO‘s hit television show Game of Thrones and that guy people yell at on the street to, “WRITE FASTER!”, has shared his Comic Con plans on his blog,
The next convention on my calendar is the San Diego Comicon.
My dance card is already almost full. Yes, there will be a GAME OF THRONES panel, and I’ll be on it. It is scheduled for Friday, July 19, 2:50 to 3:45, in Hall H To be followed by an autographing at the WB booth. Of course, I’ll be joined on the panel by half a dozen cast members (no, don’t know which ones yet) and David and Dan.
He provides some hints at what we can expect from Game of Thrones, like a panel in Hall H on Friday with David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and as of yet unannounced members of the cast. (What do you know? UPDATE! John Bradley, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, and Richard Madden will be in attendance.) Surprised? No way! After last season and all those records they broke of course the series was going to get a prime time and placement.
GRRM also has some comments for those concerned about the recent casting announcement of The Red Viper, and there are rumors Neil Marshall is returning to direct Season 4′s finale. Hit the jump!
