The X-Men will return next year in Simon Kinberg’s Dark Phoenix, but before that happens you can now relive the story of the past three movies with this new trailer for the release of the X-Men Beginnings Trilogy boxset.
Though the franchise began on the big screen back in 2000, the series got a new lease of life in 2011 when X-Men: First Class dived back into the past to explore how the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants were formed. Though the likes of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen cast long shadows, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast successfully made the iconic roles their own and are apparently happy to keep on playing them indefinitely.
In the trailer above, arguably the five fan favourite mutants from the trilogy are highlighted. Clips from First Class take us back to Charles Xavier’s younger years as »

In our year of the lord 2017, we're all just doing it for the clicks. Trending tweets, clickbait headlines, and in Tyler MacIntyre's slick little slasher satire Tragedy Girls, a social media savvy killing spree. What easier way could there be for two sociopathic teens to get internet famous than chopping the heads off their coeds and riding their blood-spattered exclusive content to viral stardom? Tragedy Girls stars Deadpool's Brianna Hildebrand and X-Men: Apocalypse's Alexandra Shipp as Sadie and McKayla; a pair of high school BFFs and next-level mean girls who decide the … »

The Skrulls aren't coming quietly. It was previously announced that the Skrulls will be the main villains in Captain Marvel, with Brie Larson's title character fighting off the intergalactic threat. A new report has surfaced that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will also be using the same villains.
The Marvel universe has no shortage of dastardly aliens that it can pit its superheroes against. But nothing quite compares to the Skrulls. They are perhaps the most notorious of outer space bad guys, who haven't shown up on screen thus far. But that's about to change in a substantial way.
X-Men 7 is planning to use the Skrulls in one key action set piece that will apparently steal the show. The scene takes place at a Un building where Professor X, played by the returning James McAvoy, will be giving a heartfelt speech on Mutants. He will be joined there by Michael Fassbender »
Famke Janssen has portrayed powerful mutant Jean Grey five times onscreen, since the first “X-Men” film and continuing all the way through to 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. Yet for the 2016 followup “X-Men: Apocalypse”, which focused on younger versions of the characters in the 1980s, producers decided to “go in another direction,” as […] »

The end of X-Men: Apocalypse teased that the franchise would be stepping more in-line with the comics going forward, as the final shots featured Professor X’s team in some largely faithful comic book costumes. This looks to continue in the follow-up, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, as one of its stars has now promised fans that they’ll be “very happy” with what the movie has to offer.
Alexandra Shipp, who’s taken over from Halle Berry to play a younger version of Storm since Apocalypse, spoke to Deadline about the film and cited director Simon Kinberg as a big reason why Dark Phoenix will be “very accurate” to the comics. As you’ll no doubt know, Kinberg has long been involved with the X-Men movie franchise in the role of screenwriter and producer, but this is his first stint in the director’s chair.

Earlier this year, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with several folks involved with the slasher comedy Tragedy Girls while in Austin at SXSW 2017 (which is where it celebrated its world premiere). But now that the film is set to enjoy its theatrical run this Friday, courtesy of Gunpowder & Sky, we thought we’d catch up again with co-writer/director Tyler MacIntyre, as well as with one-half of the film's titular anti-heroes, Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse, Straight Outta Compton), to talk Tragedy Girls one last time.
During our interview, Shipp and MacIntyre discussed their experiences collaborating together and digging into both Shipp’s character McKayla as well as the dynamic between her and her Bff, Sadie (played by Deadpool and The Exorcist TV series' Brianna Hildebrand). They also chatted about managing the tone of the wildly unhinged teenagers and what they’d like to do if there happens to »

How far would you go for social media followers? It’s a question many millennials have probably asked themselves -- but hopefully, they won’t go as far as the leads of the upcoming horror-comedy Tragedy Girls.
The film tells the story of two death-obsessed teenage girls who embark on a killing spree in their small town to draw attention to their social media accounts, and its two stars, Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp, spoke with Et about how frighteningly close to reality this concept is.
“I don’t think it’s that far-fetched,” Shipp admitted. “I think this generation is moving toward something like this in a sense.”
“It definitely says a lot about the power of social media,” Hildebrand agreed. “It is definitely not too far off to think a young person would do something like this for likes and attention.”
“I think it only takes one person to go that far,” Shipp added.

The X-Men franchise has some of the most unique characters in the cinematic world, meaning you're almost guaranteed to find a costume you like. Since X-Men: Apocalypse came out last year, the mutants have been back in the spotlight - along with a slew of young versions of the characters. If you're thinking you'd rather be Famke Janssen over Sophie Turner any day, you're in luck! (Though, come on, Sophie Turner is awesome.) We're providing both versions of the characters who have had two incarnations. Take a look! Related6 Ways to Kick Ass as The Justice League This Halloween »

Bohemian Rhapsody is shaping up to be something quite special. If there's one reason to look forward to a biopic about a famous musician, it's that those movies tend to come with mind-blowing performances. Think of Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line and Jamie Foxx in Ray. It looks like we could be in for another such performance next year, as Mr. Robot star Rami Malek has completely transformed into Queen frontman Freddie Mercury for the upcoming biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. Thanks to the latest set photo, we have another look at just how uncanny the resemblance is.
Director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past) shared the latest set photo from Bohemian Rhapsody to his Instagram account. In it, we see Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury performing on stage with the rest of Queen. If one didn't know that this picture was from a movie that is being made, it »
Although there are a number of new X-Men movies in various stages of production at the moment, director Bryan Singer—who returned to the franchise he helped create to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse—is off making a movie of a very different sort. Singer is currently in production on Bohemian Rhapsody, the long-in-the-works biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, with Mr. Robot star Rami Malek taking on the daunting lead role. Singer has now shared a new behind-the-scenes snap from the film, offering us a new look … »

MaryAnn’s quick take… A clichéd loose-cannon cop is on a case of murdered women in faux Norway. And it’s not even a decent procedural. Sexist, pointless, thoroughly awful. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast; love a good murder mystery
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

He’s a drunk — like, a seriously falling-down, passed-out-in-the-streets drunk — and a walking personal disaster. His ex just can’t live with him anymore and refuses to tell their teenaged son that he is, in fact, the kid’s dad, he’s that unreliable, but she nevertheless continues to find him irresistibly attractive. He’s a cop who goes to pieces without a case, but with a case, he’s utterly brilliant (but also still a drunk). Which is why his boss covers for him, »

Now that X-Men spinoff movie Gambit has finally been confirmed as moving forward, with Channing Tatum in the titular role, speculation is beginning to swirl around the identity of the villain of the piece. While there are a number of possibilities – including Mister Sinister, whose presence was teased at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse – hopes are building that the movie might provide the big screen debut of Gambit arch-enemy, Candra.
With female villainy being brought front and centre by the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe outing Thor: Ragnarok, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that 20th Century Fox might take that superhero lead and embrace a primary antagonist that’s also a woman. Doing so in this case would deliver a character who would make her debut alongside a new version of the card-throwing mutant – and rightly so.
Candra is a telekinetic, immortal External (a rare sub-species of mutant, »

Fox’s X-Men cinematic universe is moving along swimmingly, it seems. Though the last entry into the main series was a bomb – X-Men: Apocalypse – things have really turned around since then thanks to the smashing success of Logan, which re-ignited interest in the mutants. Now, with the studio going all in on the franchise, there’s much to get excited about in the very near future.
Just this week, we finally got our first peek at Josh Boone’s spinoff The New Mutants, which looks absolutely fantastic and today, we’re hearing that both Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix have wrapped production ahead of their 2018 release dates. The latter is expected to be with us on November 2nd, while the former will arrive on June 1st.
Along with the aforementioned New Mutants, which is due on April 13th, they’ll make up what’ll no doubt be a huge »

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s Colm Meaney has joined the cast of the upcoming J.R.R. Tolkien biopic, Tolkien. He joins X-Men: Apocalypse’s Nicholas Hoult and To The Bones‘ Lily Collins in the film with, Dome Karukoski directing from a script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford.
Per Deadline, Meaney will portray Father Francis, one of Tolkien’s school teachers. Tolkien will explore Tolkien’s formative years at school as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts. The story will follow him to World War I, which threatens to tear their ‘fellowship’ apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.

They're creepy, they're kooky, and obviously, altogether ooky. But for over 20 years now, The Addams Family has remained firmly away from the silver screen - the last we saw of America's spookiest (fictional) family was 1993's sequel, Addams Family Values.

Thanks to MGM, however, Morticia, Gomez and their unholy offspring will be making a triumphant return over the next couple of years - albeit in animated form. Word of the reboot has bubbled away for some time now, but it looks as though things are moving forward: The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the news that Conrad Vernon, best known as the director of Sausage Party, will be overseeing the project.

Michael Fassbender has been going through a bit of a rough, cinematic patch since “Steve Jobs.” The blockbuster “X-Men: Apocalypse” wasn’t what fans were looking for, Disney pretty much gave up on the (underrated) “The Light Between Oceans,” the indie “Trespass Against Us” didn’t connect, Terrence Malick fatigue hit (the also underrated) “Song To Song,” while “Alien: Covenant” underwhelmed.

The film, directed by Iron Man 3‘s Shane Black (who also starred in the original Predator alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger as marine Hawkins), is set between Predator 2 and 2010’s Predators.

With so much else going on over Twitter it’s not to hard to imagine that martial arts would be another conversation that might come up. This time however we get to listen to actors and fellow martial artists Olivia Munn and Jackie Chan. Chan is of course the noted legend and master of using anything and everything that he can in order to defeat the bad guy or get himself out trouble, or both. Munn on the other hand is a relative newcomer to the screen and has played the mutant Psylocke in the most recent X-Men: Apocalypse film where
Sneak Peek new images of actress Jennifer Lawrence aka "X-Men" mutant 'Mystique', posing for the September 2017 issue of "Elle" (France) magazine, wearing 'Christian Dior' and a whole lot more, photographed by Stas Komarovski:
